Earth Month: Support Those That Care

caring

With April being Earth month, what better time to choose to support those that care.

Never before has there been so many different brands on the market with a multitude of promises on the external packaging and by spokespeople who naively don’t know any better. Words such as ‘natural’, ‘organic’ and ‘ethical’ have been used and abused. So much so that we are now confronted with more confusion than ever.

How do we know what is truly natural? How can we be sure that the organic product we choose is genuinely organic, as opposed to a small fraction being organic with the remainder containing pesticide residue? What does ethically produced really mean? Continue reading

Japanese Beauty Secrets

cherryblossom

Blue skies and cherry blossom in Tokyo … sometimes all you can do is “look up”.

Maybe I’m delusional, maybe I was given a few extra shots of wishful thinking, or maybe I just hope that my ‘rabbit hole thoughts’ can’t possibly be true … but as long as I’m here I’ll continue to look up and seek for, ask and implement different possibilities so that the beautiful planet that we live upon can one day be restored to exactly that, and free from the insanities that pollute the earth, oceans and air we breathe.

Travelling as much as I do it never fails to shock me when observing the state of the world. Tokyo is no exception. Whilst it is seductive to write about the devastation of the reality that is right in front of me, as I sit here feeling the tension of the Earth in the joints of my knees, I would like to suggest something different … to make conscious choices in our daily actions and look for the beauty in all moments.

Be genki Ritual

VikaValter

Become aware of your self-talk and introduce stress-relieving, self-nurturing, and beautifying rituals to help promote happiness, beauty and wellbeing.

This month, when going about your day-to-day tasks, can I please request that you do so without judgment?

So often we do things on ‘auto-pilot’ and without conscious intent. Or we do so with a sprinkle of not-so-nice self-talk. For the next few weeks please become aware of the reality and frequency of the way in which you judge yourself. Not so that you can judge yourself for judging yourself. But more so, for the purpose of becoming aware, so that you can turn those thoughts 180 degrees, to create new habits that serve you better, helping to create a happier, healthier and more beautiful you. Because we all know that the most irresistible beauty is a happy smile.

If you would like a little helping hand, we’ve created three different Be genki boxes for morning, daytime and evening. Combining products that work in harmony together so as to bring about a little more stress-relief, beauty-care and happiness to your day. Continue reading

Happy New Year

byron

Whilst down at the beach this morning with my adorable husband … the sun kissing my back, swimming in the surf, and breathing in the beauty of Byron Bay beach and surrounding hinterland, I am completely filled with gratitude.

I believe that heaven really is here on earth if we wish to choose to create it. Every day that I make the intention to be present as I walk on the beach observing the clouds, the mountains, the seagulls, the ocean and the way the waves crash upon the sand; or when I look out our living room window at the birds, butterflies, flowers, plants and dragons all doing their thing in the garden, I am simply in awe at just how beautiful this planet is. It washes away all my worries and concerns about the news ‘stories’ that are designed to fuel our fear. And every time I breathe in the beauty of nature, I am gifted with even more unexpected surprises, whether it be a pod of dolphins swimming by, or a coloured flower that I hadn’t seen before, or a cloud formation that all fill me with happiness, joy and beauty.

Creating my life exactly how I like it is something that I absolutely love to play with. Continue reading

Top Tips for Better Breast Health
