Is it true, that when you look at a beautiful woman, who dances with joy, exudes passion for what she does and has a heart wide open ready to give of herself to those around her in boundless affection, genuine thoughts share stories from hard roads walked that have left her feeling raw and broken yet found freedom...
I have asked the question before 'are you willing?' But even if you are willing, you need something more. You need to understand that it is a fight, and the fight isn't always fair, but you can and will win, if you don't give up, and you believe in why you are fighting. Will you be relentless?
So some of you may know about the challenge I set close to the beginning of this year, to give myself 12 months to genuinely invest into my health and wellbeing on a physical level.

Recently I read an article over at the Collective Hub by Tess Robinson, founder of Smack Bang Designs. And it was all about networking in the business world, with 9 tips that are far from your traditional schmooze-&-booze tactics. It was a really refreshing read on basically being genuine and connecting with likeminded people...
If you take a moment to stop and think about this journey we are on, you might come to the conclusion that it is a hard one. For those that conclude otherwise, I want to know your secret!
A very moreish smoothie, with such wholesome (and green) ingredients!
Sometimes I just feel like a really creamy, delicious smoothie. And it can be hard to create such delight using wholesome ingredients... But I think I found the magic combination!
Being comfortable in my own skin is something I have never completely mastered. I've come a long way but I realised something the other day after pondering the fact that my husband and I struggle to see eye to eye on this concept –he is fabulously independent...
It is a common experience that as we are growing up we are encouraged to treat others like we would ourselves. In this two part blog post, I (Emily) will share my journey on how I'm learning to be kind to myself, each moment at a time.
