Chicken Pesto Pasta [Recipe]

In July 2014 I learned that I was allergic to wheat, rye, barley and malt. I felt like my world was over. Upon doing research, I learned that there was wheat in everything. And I mean everything.

Why You Should Give Up Right Now [VIDEO]

We all have a wishlist of things we want to have, enjoy and experience in life. We tell ourselves that when we get those things, we will be happy and/or successful.

What is Your Life Purpose? [Meditation inside]

Do you meditate? I love meditation and try to meditate between 15 to 20 minutes every day. I feel calmer, more self-aware, in tune with my feelings, more creative.

Why Hollywood Has Makeup All Wrong

What makeup product can’t you live without? For me, it’s lipstick. No lipstick – Oh. My. God. Doomed. Ten years ago though, it was a different story.

Love in the Afterlife?

Are we destined to meet our soulmate(s) in this lifetime, and if we do and we die, do we meet again on the other side?

What If Today Was Your Last Day On Earth?

 If today was your last day on earth and you were going to die tonight, how would you live your life? What kind of decisions would you make? I’ve recently been putting myself through an experiment and it’s been going pretty well. Every morning when I wake up, I psyche myself into thinking that today […] Read more…

Hurt People Hurt People

Last week, a man shouted at me in my office carpark. But he didn’t just shout at me – he spat racial slur at me. It started innocently enough. I was driving in to work. It was a regular Monday morning. I had my happy music playing, I was ready to conquer the world at […] Read more…
