{Podcast 008} Lauren Singer: zero waste champion and Trash is for Tossers founder

Trash is for Tossers founder Lauren Singer

Three years ago, Lauren Singer decided to completely stop making trash.

Incredibly, every single piece of rubbish Lauren’s produced since then fits inside a single 450g Mason jar. Most of us would throw away more in just one day.

Adopting the Zero Waste philosophy has completely changed Lauren’s lifestyle. She’s learned to make her own beauty products and switched to shopping in bulk or at farmers’ markets. She buys only secondhand clothes, refuses single-use products and has dramatically downsized the stuff in her house.

And now she’s turning that lifestyle into a business. Continue Reading →

The one thing you need to live a soulful life

Soulful living

What does it actually take to live a soulful life?

This is the question that’s been burning a hole in my brain for the past few weeks as I’ve set off around Australia in Walter the Campervan.

You see, it’s great to say “I want to live a soulful life” but then reality comes crashing in, carrying with it an avalanche of fears.

I left just over four weeks ago and — let me get really raw and honest with you here — I’ve run into a few (metaphorical) road-blocks. My emotions have been like some kind of wild rollercoaster.

One day I’m all like: “My life is freaking awesome!”
And then the next it’s more like: “Oh. My. God. What have I done?”

This is what happens when we step out of our comfort zone, right?

Put your hand up if you like cake!

Okay, that was a dumb question. Who doesn’t like cake, really?

I LOVE cake but I don’t eat it often because my jeans don’t like it. Ha! So, you can imagine my excitement when I accidentally created these morsels of magic. They taste like cake but they are WAY healthier.

I dare you to stop at just one. Continue Reading →

Claim back your power! 3 secrets to create a life you love.

Create a life you love

Guest post by Nicole Mathieson, kinesiologist and intimacy coach

Are you driving this car?

Are you in the driver’s seat of your life or do you feel like a passenger, unable to influence the direction or the scenery, just sitting there having it all happen around you, feeling powerless?

My definition of true power is having the conscious, mindful capacity to steer your life towards its most fulfilling and satisfying potential. Power is knowing that you are in the driver’s seat. It’s getting in that car, having the map to know where to drive and feeling confident taking charge of your direction.

What I am really saying is you are the one who can make this life of yours irresistible, satisfying, delicious and meaningful.

So buckle up, let’s get those wheels on the road. Continue Reading →

{Podcast 007} Bex Weller: health and business coach and Sexy Sobriety Founder

Podcast 007 Bex Weller, health and business coach

Bex and I first ‘met’ in 2012  when she stumbled across our newly-birthed vegan blog and left a heart-warming comment. I quickly realised this was a girl I needed to get to know, and through a mutual love of vegan food blogging, we became online friends.

Fast forward to the present day and there really is no stopping this inspirational lady.

I’ve watched with awe as she’s turned her little vegan blog, Vegan Sparkles, into a full-blown wellness site with a huge following, quit her corporate nine-to-five day job to follow her dreams and created several eBooks, plus launched the popular Sparkle Project, Sexy Sobriety membership program and, her newest venture, Bex Weller business mentoring.
