We all have different approaches to mindfulness, and ideas about what mindful eating means. I’ve been chatting with some of my favourite people about how they practice slow living and mindful eating at home. Jessica is a busy Mum with a baby and toddler at home, she understands the value in carving out mindful moments […]
The key to creating a Christmas table that you’ll love to share with your friends and family is to use things that are meaningful to you. To me the magic of Christmas lies in the holiday rituals I’ve created with my children. It’s so special because it’s only once a year. In Australia we don’t […]

There is so much joy in gift giving. When I have the time to really think about what a friend will love, I so enjoy choosing them a thoughtful gift and lovingly wrapping it. Giving a beautifully wrapped present to someone and watching them delight in opening it is often more exciting than getting a gift […]
Summer is almost here, and with it that feeling of youthful happiness. Mornings spent at the beach, soaking up the warm sand and staring up at clear blue skies that go forever. The taste of summer is sweet watermelon and summer berries. This recipe uses delicious fresh berries, mixed with yoghurt and granola to make […]
One of my favourite ways to slow the morning is to have as few plans as possible. To spend the time brewing chai and enjoying it with no place to be but home. I’m an introvert at heart and I really like quiet times in solitude, baking, snuggling under blankets on the couch and generally doing things that feel cosy. There’s nothing cosier than sipping a freshly made chai in bed.
If you’ve been to one of my workshops recently you’ll have been treated to a delicious cup of chai. Not just any chai, my absolute favorite – Prana Chai, made by hand in Melbourne by founders Vincent, Koray & Mario. I brew mine slowly with soy milk (Bonsoy is my go to). It doesn’t take long for the aroma of cinnamon, cardamon and star anise to gently fill the air and the experience of the perfect chai begins, even before you’ve had the first taste.
I spoke to Mario, one of the founders of Prana Chai about how he got to be creating their winning version of authentic masala tea.
Using our phones make us miss the things that really matter, that are right in front of us. Our phones are amazing tools. We have access to a world of information in our pockets. Used well, they make our lives easier, more fun, more inspired and connected. Which is great if we are using them […]
Chances are you’ve heard of hygge (pronounced hue-gah) – the Danish art of living well. Woven into the fabric of daily life in Denmark, hygge is a way of being that gives you a feeling of comfort and connection. Even if you haven’t heard of it, you’ve certainly experienced it. Sitting on the sofa, snuggled in […]
Each candle in the Winterwares range has it’s own beautiful fragrance that we’ve created to remind you of cherished moments. Woodland Trail reminds us of a walk through the forest taking in the scent of cedar with each step taken. Morning Embrace evokes that moment when you’re waking, the gentle dawn light fills your room and you’re […]
