Self Love Affirmations to Change Your Life

14th September 2021

Self love affirmations are a powerful way to change your inner and outer life… and if that statement (or should I say that self affirmation) makes you feel kinda weird, well, you’re not alone. I do a lot to keep myself fuelled up physically, psychologically, and spiritually — a wholesome vegan diet, a daily yoga practice and a regular meditation practice. But the idea of taking five minutes out of my day to say nice things to myself in front of a mirror used to make me feel cringey-anxious-inauthentic… so I started to ask myself why? And so began my self love journey.

The Best Mindfulness Quotes for Inner Calm

25th August 2021

Falling in love with yoga was easy… learning to love meditation and mindfulness was a MUCH rockier journey. But ever since the daily meditations at my YTT in India, my Vipassana retreat, and my Ayahuasca experience, mindfulness has become an integral practice for me, and mindfulness quotes have been guiding lights along the way, as well as self-love affirmations.

Celery Juice for UTIs: I tried?!

16th August 2021

You might have noticed that things have gotten a little weird over on Instagram recently. If you haven’t, well it is time you do be in the known. Someone mentioned to me there was some sort of a celery juice UTI movement happening unbeknownst to most normal people, one of the purported claims being that it could be beneficial to those with chronic urinary tract infections.

My Ayahuasca Experience

11th August 2021

I wasn’t sure whether or not I wanted to write about my Ayahuasca experience because it is so personal and I don’t want to build expectations. But since many of you have landed here in search of recommendations, I figured it could be helpful — or at the very least, mildly therapeutic — for me to share.

The Ayahuasca ceremony I chose was heard along the grapevine and honestly, I would rather keep it as such because I discovered a beautiful community that I’m hoping will be more or less the same when I return.

So you’ve decided you want to embrace ancient Shamanic plant medicines by heading to an Ayahuasca retreat in 2021 but don’t know where to start? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

Deciding to take the plunge into your first Ayahuasca retreat is a pretty big deal, and deciding which retreat to go to is an even bigger one. Some will say let the medicine call you, you’ll know when the time is right — and I have to agree. You’ll have many questions, I’m sure. I certainly did when I had my first Ayahuasca experience. What can I expect on an Ayahuasca retreat? Where can I find the best retreats? How do I choose the right Ayahuasca retreat for me?

Shakti Mat: What on Earth are They for?

14th May 2021

Here’s a little something about me — I love me a new wellness trend.

Whenever I discover something new in the world of health and wellness, from celery juice cleanses all the way to shamanic plant medicines, I have to try it out.

So when I started hearing more and more about the shakti mat — also known as acupressure mat — which has exploded in popularity over the last few years, I had to get my hands on one.

What is Jamu? And a Jamu recipe

10th April 2021

As you might have guessed from the number of blog posts that are already piled up here about Bali, I absolutely love it. A LOT. And for many reasons. The one I’ll be discussing today is Jamu, this traditional Indonesian medicinal drink that looks a bit like mango juice and that you might have seen popping up on several warung menus or in baskets on the head of the Jamu Gendong, these women roaming the streets selling their precious potions to the locals every morning.
