Posted in People on January 03, 2014

All things french this week, here is a quick look at Brigitte Bardot, a woman who has dedicated a large part of her life to helping the plight of animals around the world, particuarly her home country, France. She was born in the 30s and was the it girl of the 50s and 60s, starring in over 40 films and recording several albums.

My Trip to France and Foie Gras

Posted in Animal Welfare / Food on January 02, 2014

I have just returned from an amazing winter holiday in France. I found the atmosphere magic there around Christmas, with the city lights dazzling everywhere, the Christmas markets on Champ de Elysees, the snowy village and slopes of Megeve! The delicious ( and mostly unhealthy!) temptations of France are part of the experience; the breads, the wines and for many, the cheeses. However there is one French “delicacy” that I believe should be boycotted with deliberation. Just because you are on a holiday, why would you want to partake in […]

Garden of Vegan

Posted in Food on December 10, 2013

I was recently surprised in the small town of Launceston, Tasmania with some divine tasty vegetarian places to eat. I spent hours at the cutest cafe, The Garden of Vegan, because I wanted to taste so many of the delicious¬†options on the menu!

There is a big park across the road, which you can grab take away and […]

Washing My Children – Cruelty and Chemical Free

Posted in Health / Products on November 16, 2013

When I was pregnant with Ariella, 6 years ago, I was lucky enough to be asked to give a talk on a “chemical free pregnancy” by Todae, an online eco-store based in Sydney. It was an insightful experience as it expanded my knowledge on chemical free living and prepared me for my oncoming journey to incorporate this as ¬†a parent. Children come into this world completely dependant on us to take care of them. On a daily basis we feed them, clothe them, wash them and love them. When bathing […]

Surviving cancer.

Posted in Food / Health on November 15, 2013

I had been a vegetarian for a couple of years when my father started dating Jenny over 12 years ago. She was a game changer in my life. She looks incredible, is full of energy and had survived cervical cancer… twice. She contributes it all to her vegan living. Not only does she choose to be vegan because it saved her life but she is extremely passionate about not playing a part in the immense suffering of animals that occurs in todays world of factory farming, the leather and fur […]
