I've been utterly frothing over these photos lately. The tab has been open on my computer for about 2 weeks - much to Matt's dismay, I refuse to close. These are all action snaps of people doing something amazing/terrifying/death defying/ how-did-you-survive-that? I'm not sure how people have the balls to do this stuff. I'm honestly flat out killing a cockroach.
You can find the entire gallery here.

Hello. I have to share with you these homemade bounty bars. These are so tasty!! The recipe is from Health Yeah and I've made it quite a few times now. It's so easy and no bake (of course). Yah! Stuff the oven in Sydney summer heat.
The longest part of this recipe is covering your little bars in the chocolate. I caved last time I made it and  just covered them with Green and Blacks organic chocolate but coconut oil choc is so easy too. Enjoy.

Clean Eating Bounty Bars:

For the centre:

+  2 cups shredded coconut
+  1 cup of coconut milk/cream
+  3 Tbsp coconut oil
+  4 Tbsp pure maple syrup
+  pinch of seasalt

For the chocolate coating:

+  Green & Blacks organic chocolate or any good quality dark chic

or make your own:

+  5 Tbsp coconut oil
+  3 Tbsp cacao 
+  2 tsp maple syrup

1. In a pan combine the coconut milk/cream, coconut oil and maple syrup. Heat gradually on low heat till thoroughly mixed together.
2.  Stir in the shredded coconut and spoon mixture into a dish lined with baking paper. Place in the fridge and allow to cool and set. Mine normally take a solid 3-4 hours. Best to leave overnight.
3. Once set, cut into bars.
4. Melt chocolate over steaming water and using a spoon and some nifty handiwork, coat each bar in chocolate. Place back in freezer to allow chocolate to set.

I store these in the freezer and you can honestly keep them for ages. They're stay so nice and chilled. Little bars of heaven deliciousness x



I''ve been very much MIA lately due to exams at school and holiday prep. My temptation to internet procrastinate is pretttttty strong so sometimes it's just best to stay away. Anyway, stumbled upon this last week. The video pretty much says it all. A uni friend also told me about a similar experience she had whilst on a wellness retreat and a lady there had saved a hamburger for around 8 years. Same thing happened, no disintegration, no mould, pretty much amazing condition. Im sure (would hope) Mcdonalds still isn't using the same process of preservatives that were used 14 years ago- and this was in the USA where everything is a little different. However, regardless of that unknown, Im keen to stay very much well away from this after this story. 



Today I went to a wet lab. A wet lab is a place where you can examine cadavers. A cadaver is a dead body donated to science typically intended for human dissection. This is was all part of my human biology course.
So just an average, light Monday afternoon.
I really was not too keen on going due to how squirmy I get from a gorey YouTube. However I managed the whole two hours.

The whole experience forces you to face your own mortality. Nothing else quite achieves that then holding a human heart. Knowing that it beat year after year, keeping one person of six billion alive. 

Or a brain - this small mushy organ that once held somebody's personality, experience and memories. 
All of it, in my hot nervous little hands! It's a rather confronting thought to know we all look the same underneath. Well most of us. Hopefully. Especially when societies all about image and how great and attractive we can present ourselves but I'd argue that the real magic's underneath. 
All the cells, tendons, bones, ligaments, veins, arteries and organs working together in this wonderful harmony of brilliance. It didn't have to learn how to do it, it just does. Such a thought that our body is smarter than us.
I don't care what my science teacher says. That's not a beautiful evolution. That's a beautiful creation.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, 
   I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place,
     when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be - Psalm 139



For the past few weeks at Uni we've been studying macro minerals and trace minerals as part of our nutrition subject. One of the trace minerals we covered this week was Fluoride. We probably all associate fluoride with healthy teeth and believe its a highly necessary mineral. Interestingly, fluoride isn't considered an essential trace mineral but rather is of benefit. This video highlights some very valid points. Australia, along with the USA fluoridates its water supply, despite the mineral not even being essential to our health. Over 70% of Australia's water supply is fluoridated. The research doesn't diminish the benefits of fluoride applied topically to teeth but it is increasingly highlighting the potentially serious, adverse effects of internally consuming fluoride- such as in drinking water.
What is also tricky, is that many water filters and purifiers also contain/add fluoride. This was all rather confronting information for me! I don't have any answers but I would rather get amongst this issue then avoid it. Have a watch x

Vegan, sugar free and dairy free goes indie. If you like fashion and also food then you'll (maybe) like Lookbook Cookbook. It was set up by Jessica Millian who is apparently a rather prominent US fashion photographer. The site is jammed full of sweet treats. Think peanut butter fudge, chocolate almond bark and maple pecan pie. Every recipe is accompanied with a hot chick wearing something cute and posing with the given creation. What more could a hipster ask for.
