A blueberry kind of weekend

I get excited for blueberries. This weekend it was about breakfasts and pancakes.

Je m’excite quand c’est la saison des myrtilles. Ce weekend je me suis régalée aux petits déjs et aux pancakes.

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul, and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.”

Care Package from Melbourne

I just love getting packages from home. Australian products, things I miss, cards from loved-ones. It’s easy to feel as though you’re losing touch with your home town or country when you are away for so long. I am incredibly glad to be visiting Melbourne in September.

Two of my favourite people sent me this care package that arrived on a rainy day and it gave me a piece of home and brightened my day.

Russh magazine. A great Australian magazine that isn’t quite mainstream so you can read about interesting brands and people that are yet to be revealed in the mainstream culture.

This uplifting body lotion by Australian Bush Essences is just beautiful. Citrus is a very uplifting smell and opens up your chakras in the morning when you sometimes wake up a little foggy. All ingredients are Australian: Banksia, Billy goat plum, Five corners, Flannel flower, Mulla Mulla, Old man Banksia, She Oak, Wisteria. The earthy and natural smells make me miss my country.

And last but not least this Indah Organics meditation balm. Cardamom is such a winner. The founder of Indah, Teisha Lowry, is also a coconut oil lover like me.

Morning Juice

There is no better way to start your day than with a fresh juice. Full of vitamins, gets your metabolism going and makes you feel bright and alive!

This particular juice was lemon, blood orange and luke warm water. Don’t have cold water first thing in the morning, it’s too hard on your system after sleeping.

Is Your Love Big Enough?

Did you know that flowers have been proven to increase happiness levels? Scientists have proven this, so it isn’t a myth. The presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. And if that’s not enough…Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. All study participants expressed “true” or “excited” smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude. This reaction was universal, occurring in all age groups.

So when is the last time you had fresh flowers in your home?
