Cinnamon ritual for first of the month

For a long time I’ve struggled with the masculine energy associated with 1st of the month goal setting. I completely buy into the idea that a goal without a deadline is simply a dream.

How to get ahead on the self love stakes

Setting your intentions for release in Jan 2022

I can hardly believe we are already witnessing a full moon at the start of 2022. The year is already running away with us and so many of us are yet to set intentions for the year or are still holding onto past beliefs, hurts or limited thinking that is really not helpful in a year that is resonating with love. It’s time to let go and release all that is no longer serving you and a full moon is a ...

Nourishing Women in 2022

My cross roads have been plentiful over the years. I left corporate life after having my daughter in the early 2000’s then started my own business when I realised motherhood alone wasn’t enough for me but that corporate life wouldn’t accommodate my needs, or hers. I went into business with my husband and in my 40s retrained and reinvented myself as a nutritionist, wellness and menopause coach. I ...

Nourish the women

I went through a phase when I was always saying ‘yes’ to things even those things I didn’t want to do, or knew I couldn’t fit in! It left me stressed, anxious and overwhelmed and yet I continued to say ‘yes’ feeling that I needed to please those around me and that saying NO would … well what would it do? I was worried it would make me appear less to them? But what it left me feeling about myself ...

Ceremonial Cacao - what you need to know

When I first discovered ceremonial cacao I was at a loss as to understand the difference between it and the organic powdered cacao I had in the kitchen pantry. A lot of research, a not insignificant amount of tasting!, a lot of soul searching, and an immense amount of reading up on the history, tribes and regions where cacao grows, led me to many revelations. Let me share a few. What is Cacao? ...

How to create your own Self Care Sunday

We’re in the throws of a third lockdown and it feels never ending doesn’t it. People’s stress levels are off the scale and home schooling, the weather, inability to go to the beautician for a pamper session and lack of focus if you’re on furlough are certainly taking their toll. Yet this is Valentine’s week and we’re supposed to be celebrating the art of love! There’s no better way to share the ...
