The Brilliance Of Elizabeth Gilbert

by Leisa on February 1, 2016

I am definitely an Elizabeth Gilbert fan. I know there is a huge divide between the “lovers” and “haters” when it comes to her bestselling novel Eat. Pray. Love. but I found the authenticity in her book and the integrity in Gilbert’s writing to be something quite lovely. And listening to her since, especially when

My partner and I recently became the proud caretakers of a 7 year old Staffordshire bull terrier named Rex. As Rex’s newly adoptive owners we have spent the first six months getting to know this little ball of muscle, his likes, dislikes, and finding out how we fit together as a family unit. In doing

Tried Everything?

by Rhianna on August 8, 2014

What do you do when you have tried everything? Sometimes you just get to that point. You know, the point where you feel that nothing you have tried has worked, and you’ve spent so much money and wasted so much time and done everything you can possibly do. And still nothing has worked. And you just

Give It A Go!

by Rhianna on August 6, 2014

As a naturopath, I often hear “Oh, I have tried such-and-such (a product, a treatment, a modality) and it didn’t work for me.” When I was studying to be a naturopath, if a patient would tell me something along these lines I would believe them without question, but now with years of experience behind me,

Pay It Forward

by Rhianna on July 17, 2014

I know we are supposed to wake up each day and choose to be happy. I know it can be a conscious decision; we are the ones in charge of our mood and how we decide to feel each day, we have the power. But sometimes you wake up feeling less than great. And making

Is Your Body At War?

by Rhianna on June 16, 2014

Today I woke up with one mean hangover! My eyes felt puffy with big dark bags under them, I woke up heavily and reluctantly, wishing it was Sunday, my head full and fuzzy and I was a generally grumpy little human. Alcohol? What alcohol? Oh no, this isn’t your typical one-drink-too-many hang over. This is

Kids: When Healthy Becomes Too Healthy

With childhood obesity levels at an all time high, society has every right to start freaking out about the health of our future generations. Last week my blog was all about tips to help your children be as healthy as possible. But what the weekend has shown me, is that balance is key, not extremism.

What We Should Be Teaching Our Kids

by Rhianna on May 27, 2014

After attending the premier of Overfed and Undernourished last Wednesday night on the Gold Coast, I have been giving a lot of thought to our up and coming generations. I am only 31 years old, and yet in my lifetime the world has changed a staggering amount. Evolution, synonymous with the words development, advancement, progression
