Oh hey there! I see you're new around here, let's take a minute to get to know each other.

Here's 10 random things that you may not know about me.

1. I wear my socks inside out, I hate the feeling of stringy bits inside the socks but love to buy striped or patterned socks.

2. I've been a vegetarian for 28 years, a group of friends and I went vegetarian in high school and it stuck with me. I'd never really liked meat and have many a childhood meat trauma story to share with you all another time.

3. I like to drink Chai Latte's, well you probably know that from a glimpse at my feed, but I only like to drink Chai Latte's from cups with no handle. If you give me a chai in a cup with a handle, I don't know how to handle it.

4. I love a good pun, dad jokes, and rely heavily on sarcasm as a form of communication. They really should have a sarcasm font.

5. I worked in a video shop for ten years in the late 80's and most of the 90's but I only saw the Princess Bride for the first time this year! I know, right? How did that happen?

6. I quote F.R.I.E.N.D.S a lot, identifying with Monica, I like things clean and always follow the rules when playing games. And Joey, cos like Joey I don't share food!

7. I do not like being called Stace. Especially in text. Press the Y people, press the Y!

8. I swear. I swear a lot. I'm sure that I say oh for fucks sake at least 7000 times a day.

9. I exaggerate a lot. And my most favourite number to exaggerate with is, you guessed it, 7000!

10. I can make meals out of next to nothing. I'd rather stretch my skills and imagination with food than have to go grocery shopping. Some of my best recipes have come from what I call Old Mother Hubbard cupboards.

Tell me some random things about you or do a post like this and tag me, I'd love to get to know you better.

For a long time I was lonely and isolated, the connection I was craving just wasn't there, I'd sit on my brown couch alone and lonely.

I would see the good times my "friends" were having and felt left out. I actually said to my husband "Maybe I should start drinking, then I'll be included" he replied "Dude, I think you need new friends. Don't change something so fundamentally you to fit in." So I set out to make new friends and develop real connections. I now have a circle of friends who accept me for who I am, I don't have to change to fit in.

And I offer that friendship and connection in my business as well, I based the core and why of my business on this:

Connection is the energy that is created between people when they feel seen, heard and valued - when they can give and receive without judgement. Brené Brown.

It's why I started my monthly Encouragement Circle's.

It's why I have true friendships within my dõTERRA community, not just friendships with me but friendships between others in the community as well.

In the last 18 months many women have come and sat on my brown couch with me, making new friends, not only with me but with each other.

If you are looking for connections, friendship and to find your tribe come along to tonight's Encouragement Circle.

“ Fox”. From my new series “Natural Connections “. You can see the Celtic Triskele symbol of connection to the fore together with the Ancient Celtic script Ogham to the left representing the Alder tree with which the Fox was associated. I have added various descriptive words throughout the paintings that describe Fox’s attributes 😀

Wonderful time at the seaside today enjoying the sand and sunshine ☀️ recharging with vitamin D- tons of that to go around here 😉 and the sea breeze I think can cure anything! It’s very healing on a way, like it takes and blows away any problems you might have... it’s the feeling I get from the sea 🌊 looking into it makes me feel that everything is pretty insignificant in the big scale of things... and then even the biggest issues become something less insurmountable. Nature really teaches us in any situation if we pay attention... .

Today it's our 17th anniversary of our first date!

Tommi picked me up in the Wagon and it was love at first sight for me. And I am still in-love with that car 17 years later!
We went out for Mexican and I ate the biggest burrito 🌯 Tommi had ever seen and he said that's the reason he knew I was the one. Pretty sure the reason I love 🌮 Taco Tuesday and Mexican food so much is because it brings back memories of our first date.

Tommi doesn't think we should be celebrating our first date anniversary, he thinks only the wedding anniversary counts 😔

I'd take the wagon out for Mexican to celebrate but alas it's in the middle of an engine rebuild and not on the road.

Do you celebrate the anniversary of your first date?

5 people in one tiny caravan, boy am I glad I packed my noise cancelling headphones!

It's bone chilling cold, boy am I glad I packed my @niksandkeeks cashmere wrap!

I've had a little rest while Tommi sorted out the fishing 🎣 gear, boy am I glad I packed Motivate and Peppermint Beadlets!

Tommi's plan is to find somewhere to do some freshwater fishing and cook a BBQ lunch. My plan is to take loads of photos of him teaching our daughters his love of freshwater fishing.

What have you got planned for this weekend? *Yes, I'm totally wearing my sunnies inside, when I'm feeling overwhelmed even light can be too much.

Driving down south and Tommi asks for those peppermint ball things to perk him up. Lucky I always keep some in my handbag.

Popping 2 Peppermint Beadlets is better than a double shot coffee for a kick, according to Tommi, they are great for when he is working night shift too.

I love the fresh burst of Peppermint but think my head would fly off with 2 beadlets.

There's a quarter of a drop of dõTERRA Peppermint essential oil in each one, Tommi asked me how do they get the quarter drop in there anyway? dõTERRA magic for sure!

Handy to keep in your bag for refreshing the breath, clearing the airways, travel sickness, upset tummies and that burst of alterness.

I've put Balance in the car diffuser, excitement levels were high as we headed out on our first family fishing trip, Balance has calmed everyone down, ready for the drive down south.

Disposable Cleaning Wipes.

I love having these wipes on hand for all of the big and little messes the kids make.
They were especially for handy cleaning up sticky, grainy hot chocolate yesterday.

These are so gentle that the kids can use them too.

You can use any combination of oils you like:
Wild Orange and Eucalyptus, Citrus Bliss and Tea Tree, Purify, Lemongrass, Litsea
Here are just a few different ways to use these wipes:

Cleaning the loo

Quick bathroom sink wipe down

Spot cleaning sticky spills on the floor

Cleaning walls, door handles, and light switches

Wiping down outdoor furniture

On a picnic to clean up before and after eating

Mopping with a swifter type mop

Cleaning the car dash and steering wheel

Add a few more drops of Lemon to rub off sticky residue from stickers

Cleaning the bin

Leave a wipe in the bottom of the bin to eliminate odors

Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of the doTERRA On Guard Cleaner Concentrate is that is a safe, non-toxic way to clean your home. These days, many surface cleaners are full of harmful chemicals and toxins. The non-toxic, biodegradable formula of On Guard Cleaner Concentrate is designed to give homeowners a natural option for cleaning surfaces around the home.
If you worry about keeping your family safe from toxins, or if you have children or pets in the home, using a surface cleaner like the On Guard Cleaner Concentrate allows you to clean your home with peace of mind.

Everything I ever hoped for in life became reality now that I have you in my life 💭 you take me far away from this world and that’s one of the reasons I love you as much as I do. I think we all need someone who can take us far away from this world when needs be. I mean it can be a horrible place to be sometimes. Aliens probably look down at how fucked up our planet is and are planning to wipe out our whole race any second now 🤔 #morningthoughts☕️💭 #peoplewhodontbelieve👽arejustscared #deepconversations #naturalconnections 💕

#tuesdaysatbom date with my oils and this little Earth Goddess.

She asked for an iTovi scan and the top oils that came up were Basil, Melissa, White Fir and Myrrh.

We chatted about how she was feeling, exhausted and not connected to her spirit. She said it's hard work being Kisha's little sister at times, that she doesn't get enough time on her own with her crystals and books.

Basil is the oil of renewal, it supports the adrenals to restore the body to it's natural rhythms of sleep, activity and rest.

Melissa is the oil of light, assists with spiritual guidance, reconnecting with your inner voice.

White Fir is the oil of generational healing, that offers a refuge of spiritual protection and helps individuals stay true to the path of healing, even if their family members oppose them in leaving behind their traditions.

Myrrh is the oil of Mother Earth, like the warmth of a mother's love for her child, Myrrh supports feeling safe and secure and connected to Mother Earth.

I'm pretty sure she has a greater connection to the oils than I do.

Eva has asked to have these oils in her diffuser when we get home so she can do her favourite Healing the Healer meditation.

I love that she brought her own reusable straw🥤after learning that plastic straws at cafes aren't washed and reused.

I'm heading down to BOM this morning with my oils, iTOVi scanner and my girls for our regular Tuesdays at BOM at bom chai and chat, then I'll be going off grid for a couple of days as we head down south.

Don't worry I'll be back in time for Friday's Winter Wellness Make & Take (there are still a few discounted early bird tickets available) to get hands on with the oils and help you make your own blends to take home.

Saturday I'll be at Dome Waikiki with Enlightened Wellness with Laura Le Scelle for her Happy Mums & Happy Kids - It’s Back To School Time! Laura has some fantastic prizes up for grabs at this event and I will have some extra special Diamond Club gifts for anyone who becomes a new member of our team on the day.

I haven't forgotten about all of you who live NOR (that's North of the River for those not up with the Perth acronyms) you can connect with me and Remedy For Life With Pip at Dome Joodnalup for some NOR Winter Wellness, let me know if you'd like this to be a Make & Take Workshop.

It's perfect crumble weather!

My friend Mandy adapted an old family crumble recipe to be nut free, sugar free, and wheat free.

You could even make this 100% vegan by using 80g of coconut oil instead of a mix of butter and coconut oil.

I made this for the ladies at this month's Encouragement Circle and they all asked for the recipe.

I used 50g of @seedsisterco Seeds NO Stuff, a mix of organic chia, organic sunflower seeds, organic buckwheat groats, pepitas, linseed, teff seeds and organic amaranth.

You can make the fruit filling and crumble ahead of time and assemble just before baking.

@nudiejuice Vanilla Coconut Yoghurt is a delicious, creamy alternative to traditional cream.

I only use dõTERRA food grade essential oils for cooking, shop in your pj's via the link in my bio.

Jump over to Facebook to save the full recipe graphic or send me a message and I'll give you a downloadable printable copy.

#tuesdaysatbom with my oils and iTovi scanner are still on even in the school holidays.

I think I need this time of social connection in the school holidays more than ever, a chance to get out of the house and have a conversation with other adults.

I gave myself an iTovi scan this morning while I was sipping my Stacey Chai and as usual it was spot on with what I need emotionally right now.

Spikenard, the oil of gratitude, encourages the soul to surrender and accept life exactly as it is.

Encouraging blend, the oil of motivation, is especially helpful in times of weariness and discouragement when one has lost the energy and motivation to complete important life tasks, such as caring for or assisting others in need.

Geranium the oil of love & trust, when there has been a loss of trust in relationships, geranium encourages emotional honesty, love, and forgiveness. It fosters receptivity to human love and connection.

Cypress the oil of motion & flow is especially indicated for individuals who are mentally or emotionally stuck, stiff, rigid, tense, over- striving, or have perfectionistic tendencies.

See, spot on!

The swan and the Raven~ Both birds are sacred to my Lady Brigid ♡ and both are in my dreams. Today a VERY large raven landed on the tip of the pine nearest to our chicken coop cawing loudly for my attention. As soon as I heard the call I knew it was speaking directly to me and got up and went outside to find out why ... the door had blown open in the wind and our newest and dearest little chicks were about ready to make a run for it out the door in the wrong direction- straight out in the yard to the dogs or in the open for the hawks. My heart would have been broken!
I said a quick thank you while we ran to closed the door, she/he said you're welcome and flew away. It was magic. And I'm grateful for those natural connections ♡

Why do I do my Tuesday morning's with my oils at Brother of Mine? There are a few different reasons.

And no Stacey Chai isn't the main reason!

Firstly it was meeting a stranger at a cafe to talk about essential oils that changed my life. Sure my Doctor told me to talk with one of his patients about essential oils, but my first oily experience was meeting a stranger at a cafe, a moment I am thankful for every single day.

Secondly it was at a class at another cafe where I learned about the link between gut health and mental health, things I learned in that class have helped Kisha overcome many challenges in the last year.

Thirdly for a long time I was lonely and isolated, I craved community and connections. My husband and I had (actually we still have) a dream to create a community centre where people could go for natural health support, encouragement, and connections. BOM offers that community and in that community I can connect with people offering the encouragement and friendship that I craved during my darkest times.

So when I say I'll be at Brother of Mine every Tuesday morning with my oils I'm offering more than just a chai & chat or coffee catch up.

I'm offering so much more.

Could meeting a stranger in a cafe to talk about essential oils change your life?

I lay in bed and watched the sunrise this morning, the sky filled with pink wispy clouds.

I woke early to call Tommi before he started work, we've been playing lots of phone tag the last few days.

He tells me only 3 more sleeps and I'll be home babe...wait what day is it? Tuesday, it's Tuesday.

The long weekend has thrown me out of my routine. I honestly had no idea what day it is.

I normally sync the calendars and my diary, menu plan and grocery shop on a Monday, so I know what we are all up to and where we need to be each day.

So if today is Tuesday then it's #tuesdaysatbom with my oils to catch up with you guys this morning. I'll have the girls with me as they don't head back to school till tomorrow.

And I won't be having tacos 🌮 for dinner this Tuesday cos I haven't gone grocery shopping and that can just wait till tomorrow when the girls are back at school, it always blows the budget when they "help" with the shopping.

Now I'm getting up, rolling out my yoga mat and getting my diary organised.

Will I see you at BOM for a coffee / chai this morning?

This time of year Facebook memories remind me of how far I've come in the last 2 years.

In March and April 2016 I had 2 nervous breakdowns, I hit rock bottom, then I hit rock bottom's basement.

I'd gone from undiagnosed and unwell, but functioning, to diagnosed, medicated and mentally unstable.

I checked myself into Hollywood Clinic because I had become a danger to myself and my children.

I spent 10 days in the hospital where they adjusted and added to my medication, and did art and crafts.

When I got home I slept for 14 hours straight and existed in a zombie state for weeks.

My husband left his job to look after me and the girls.

It was the hardest thing our family has been through.

I had a standing weekly appointment with my GP, I kept telling him that I didn't feel right, and at one of these visits he gave me the details of one of his other patients, telling me to have a chat with her about essential oils.

Little did he know that would be the start of an amazing journey of recovery, self love and growth for me.

So much has changed in the last 2 years and it all started with one drop of Balance essential oil.

I'll be talking about how I used oils and supplements to support my mental health recovery, and the changes I have made over the last two years to create a Wellness Lifestyle at my Natural Support for Mental Health class next Saturday afternoon NOR Joondalup, tickets and more information available via the event ticket 🎫 link in my bio.

For a long time I was lonely and isolated, the connection I was craving just wasn't there.

I would see the good times my "friends" were having and felt left out. I actually said to my husband "Maybe I should start drinking, then I'll be included" he replied "Dude, I think you need new friends. Don't change something so fundamentally you to fit in." So I set out to make new friends and develop real connections. I now have a circle of friends who accept me for who I am, I don't have to change to fit in.

And I offer that friendship and connection in my business as well, I based the core and why of my business on this:

Connection is the energy that is created between people when they feel seen, heard and valued - when they can give and receive without judgement. Brené Brown.

It's why I started hosting monthly Encouragement Circle's.

It's why I culitvate friendships within my dõTERRA community, not just friendships with me but friendships between others in the community as well.

If you are looking for connections, friendship and to find your tribe come along to this month's Encouragement Circle.

Two years ago today I did something that changed my life for the better.

I met a stranger at a coffee shop to talk about essential oils.

My doctor told me to go and talk to one of his other patients about essential oils, little did he know that it would be those oils that saved my life, quite literally, as I used them to support me as I weaned myself off of all the medication he had me on.

It all started with one drop of Balance.
I'm thankful every single day that dõTERRA is part of my life.

dõTERRA is a personal development company wrapped up in oils! And I can attest to that.

If you'd told me two years ago that I'd be running my own business, travelling Australia hosting classes and workshops, being asked to be a guest speaker or presenting on various topics from natural support for mental health and parenting, I would have told you that you were dreaming.

I was a hot mess two years ago, no, strike that. I was in the middle of a nervous breakdown. I had hit rock bottom. Then went down further to hit rock bottoms basement. I was lonely, isolated and in a world of pain.

Through dõTERRA I have found my voice, my passion, my inner spark and am still discovering more about myself every single day.

Recovery is a process of little steps every day that eventually add up to big changes.

Now the oils are part of my everyday life at home, the girls and Tommi all use the oils and I have found my passion and am working in my dream job, I have made many friends and created an amazing supportive community through my dõTERRA business.
Would you like to meet me at a coffee shop and talk about essential oils? They could change your life too.

A weekend of nothing much planned means there is time for naps, reading, baking and creativity.

What does nothing much look like for you?

Feeling totally inspired by this amazing family I had the privilege of shooting today. Some times sessions just flow so easily and organically, and you end the day feeling like you should be best friends, which was the case with these guys. I can't wait to share more from their session, the kids are literally unicorn children. They gave me ALL the poses 😂.

We've walked to my favourite silhouette photo spot to watch the moon rise and sun set.

Much further than my usual #tenminutesforme stroll around the park across the road, but oh so worth the effort.

I've promised the girls we will walk to a different park each day this long weekend.

We have so many parks within walking distance and we don't often make the effort to go and enjoy them.

I'm sure I build up in my mind the effort it takes to do these things, when in reality it's not that much effort at all.

When was the last time you put in the effort to do something out of the norm?

What plans have you got this long weekend?

The line at the end of yesterday's post "I feel amazing...not wait I am amazing!" wasn't how I've always felt about myself.

I've been my own worst enemy, critic, and mean girl.

It's taken me 42 years to start falling in love with myself, to be true to myself, have my own back and the strength to silence that inner mean girl.

The things I used to say to myself I would never say to or even think about anyone else, so why was I saying it to myself?

Falling in love with myself and making ME a priority in my life wasn't easy at first, but I fought hard to become this awesome and I'm not going to let my inner mean girl take away from that, even though she still tries, each and every day.

Don't save things for special occasions, everyday of your life is a special occasion.

I swore when I got this gorgeous dress for Gala that I wouldn't leave it hanging in my wardrobe, it's way too beautiful.

So I dressed it down with a denim jacket and ankle boots 👢

Perfect for:
Autumn weather ☑️
School run ☑️
Intentionally Organised workshop ☑️
Hanging round at home ☑️

When was the last time you wore your favourite dress, just because?

I feel amazing, no wait I am amazing!

*~A Thank You, and Weekly Horoscopes Update~* Greetings, lovely ones! To all who stopped by the Bright Star/Stellar Weddings booth at the wellness fair this past Saturday, *~thank you~*! It was wonderful to have the chance to do readings in mini-sessions, and to see the healing, magic, and shifts that happened in that space.
I'd also like to say thank you to Chelsee of HiRy Creations, who did a fabulous job handling the booth and sharing her gorgeous jewelry, and to Amber of Wild Pages for bringing her talents to the mix with her beautiful Zodiac journals!

Natural Connections did an incredible job organizing the fair, as always. It's a joy to be a part of a thriving, ever-expanding, truly wonderful and diverse group of holistic practitioners.
We also had the most fantastic synergistic and healing cacao circle with Len Novak last night at the Joy Center as he shared his gorgeous hand drums and gift of healing drumming with those who attended. The magic continues to play, dance, and expand in the most delightful of ways!
WEEKLY HOROSCOPES

Because of the very busy weekend, I'll be sharing a full moon forecast of sorts later in the week. Check back here or on the Bright Star website for new videos and blog post entries coming soon(ish). :) #brightstar #astrology #marquette #naturalconnections #holisticfair #spring #readings #drumming #cacao #ceremony #Womanrunes #psychic #healing #cosmic

I seem to achieve lots of little bits of nothing much in particular.

Putting off things that really take no time at all, but take up tabs in my brain, that often wake me at 3am to remind about it.

I'm hoping that time blocking will help me to close some of the many tabs open in my brain.

We will be having a conversation about time blocking with organisation queen 👑 @the_organised_perspective
at tomorrow's Intentionally Organised round table.

I've created pretty time blocking printables to help me get started.

Do you have any good time blocking tips?

Or like me do you need some help to be Intentionally Organised?

Why not come along and have a conversation about it with us.

Complementary tickets are still available to tomorrow's Intentionally Organised round table @kentstreetdeli

I intuitively picked this blend today 💧 💧 Siberian Fir
💧 💧 💧 Tangerine
💧 💧 💧 Litsea

Had to wander all over the house to gather these oils but knew I specifically wanted these 3 in the diffuser today.

When I looked up the emotions of the oils I could see why I chose them!

Siberian Fir - the oil of aging & perspective
Siberian Fir helps ease difficult transitions by encouraging individuals to focus on finding meaning and purpose with each new chapter. Individuals may need to realign their hopes and aspirations to the realities of the present moment.

Tangerine - the oil of cheer & creativity
Creativity can be stifled by an excessive sense of duty or creating rigid standards for oneself. While work, duty, and responsibility all have their place, feeling overworked, overly responsible, and overburdened leads to a loss of creative energy. Tangerine invites individuals to make room for their creative side, and asks that they reinsert fun, joy, and spontaneity into their lives.

Litsea - the oil of manifestation
Litsea is a powerful mobiliser of the will. It is especially helpful in encouraging individuals to follow through in their inspiration and promptings. Litsea invites individuals to recognise what clouds and distracts their inner clarity to make the required changes.

Just 30 minutes with this in the diffuser I have achieved more than I have in a week, and have cleared a lot of the physical and mind clutter ready to be open to creativity, and change.

What have you got in the diffuser today?

Amongst the gentle Energy of the Paperbark I find solace.

This beautiful tree inspires creativity and protection, it's bark may be used for drawing and painting on, most recently hieroglyphic style images of Hathor (I use it also for Spells/Incantations and Magickal Symbols). Indigenous Australianss used the bark for for covering temporary dwellings, bandages and to wrap the bodies of their dead in.

Being drought tolerant and fire hardy they offer up the qualities of strength and endurance.

The highly fragrant nectar content of the flowers sustain a variety of wildlife.

The paper bark is of the Melleleuca Family and Early Settlers named it for the Greek words Melanos = Black and Leukos = White. Referring to the bark being black close to the trunk and white on top after bushfires.

I am lucky enough to have a lot of these divine trees in my local park.

Yesterday would have been the 80th day in a row that I rolled out my yoga mat.

But I didn't.

I was writing and got lost in the flow and ideas, then moved on to work and then the rest of the day flew past.

I woke up this morning and realised that I didn't yoga yesterday and was devastated.

The spiral thinking of self doubt and deflation started instantly. I could hear my mind already making excuses not to bother any more, that I'd stuffed it now there was not point...blah blah blah.

I used The 5 Second Rule to call bullshit on those thoughts.

No freaking way am I stopping just because I didn't roll out my yoga mat yesterday.

I'll start my count again and use the 79 days I DID do yoga as a goal to beat, instead of beating myself up about it.

I can see how easily your mind can sabotage your best efforts and ideas, and how it can create inaction in an instant if your not aware that you have the power to choose action over excuses.

So today I'll roll out my yoga mat and call it day one.

Actually no, I'll stop counting and just enjoy the daily practice and not give up!

I'm passionate about natural solutions, ways to support your body and mind with essential oils, nutrition, and making small changes to get big results.

Because I've seen miraculous changes, in myself, my family, and the many people I now call friends, who I have shared dõTERRA with.

Tomorrow I'm presenting Natural Support for Mental Health at Kent Street Deli covering how I have made changes in my life to thrive not just survive while living with Depression, Anxiety, and Fibromyalgia.

There are a few complimentary tickets still available if you or a loved one need some support for their mental health.

I've had such a great day, starting with yoga this morning, and no real drama's with the girls getting ready for school.

Breakfast at BOM 💣 with my tribe.

Shopping for skinny jeans 👖 getting some slim fit boyfriend jeans as well that were a great bargain.

Even grocery shopping was fun cos @gingernotes_simone 🍍 and I shopped together! I impressed her with me strength when I lifted a whole box of rice milk off the shelf and put it in the trolley. She impressed me with her itemised shopping list with what was on special in both Coles and Woolies.

Fresh haircut feels 😊 @the_secret_looking_glass next time I'll have to ask you to take a pic of the awesome hair tattoo 💜

Receiving an old favourite book in the mail from my mum

And easy dinner prep because the power is out till after 6pm.

Now why am I sharing all of this with you?

Well really to remind myself.

I had a fight with Kisha after school, she had a meltdown about not being able to make toast (no electricity, so totally out of my control) and her meltdown pushed me straight into fight mode.

I feel rattled and don't find it as easy to bounce back as she does.

I found myself wallowing and thinking the day was ruined, being hard on myself for falling straight back into old patterns.

When I looked back on the day I could see it was just a bad moment, not a bad day. I just had to shift my focus.

What good happened in your day today?

I'm learning to do this for myself.

Recharging myself fully before I give to others.

No more pushing myself to exhaustion and burnout.

Yesterday afternoon I was exhausted, snappy, and not feeling my best.

I put myself in time out.

Hopped into my pj's and was in bed curled up with my book at 6:30pm.

Tommi took care of dinner, school lunches, and clean up.

Kisha came and lay with me for her quiet reading time.

Tommi made me hot buttered toast when the girls were in bed.

I didn't fall asleep till after 9pm, but I rested and recharged.

I feel so much better for it this morning.

When was the last time you recharged yourself?

Creating new habits isn't easy, especially when old habits are well and truly ingrained.

My new habit rolling out my yoga mat daily has had a massive impact on my strength, both physically and mentally.

I've rolled out my mat 77 days in a row.

When I travelled.

When I didn't feel like it.

When I wanted to escape.

When I wanted to be present.

When I was tried.

When I was sore.

For 6 minutes.

For 23 minutes.

For 45 minutes.

For the changes I can't see.

For the changes I can feel.

For me.

To breathe.

To connect with myself.

To move my body.

The habit I broke to make this 👆 happen each day was reaching for my phone first thing in the morning.
I swapped the scrolling for #tenminutesforme reading, writing in my gratitude journal and rolling out my yoga mat.

And guess what? I did all that and still had time to scroll and catch up with you guys!

Are you ready to create new habits and start living internationally?

What's one habit your like to break?

I've just spent the last 2 hours muttering to myself...I mean cleaning.

I didn't even make a dent in the mess, just relocated half of it to the kids end of the house.

Motivate in the diffuser couldn't lift my spirits after finding 5 apple cores hidden behind the couch cushions, yet again!

They didn't break their record of 17 petrified apple cores under the couch, but I wasn't brave enough to move the couch today, who knows what else I'd find!

They've only just earn TV privileges back to lose it again, why is it so hard to put the garbage in the bin?

Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful to the bottom of my heart that I met a stranger in a cafe to talk about essential oils.

I get emotional every time I share my story, because I know that the oils saved my life.

In the last two years I have made many changes in my life, and those changes all started with one drop of Balance.

I'll be sharing my story and how I naturally support my mental health this Friday morning at @kentstreetdeli, for more details click the event ticket link in my bio.

I'm calling it!

Today is a pajama day, a day of rest, reading, snuggled in bed with a cuppa.

With a good change of a nana nap and Netflix.

I'm feeling very fibro today and know better than to push myself through it.

A day to rest and restore is just what I need.

What have you got planned for today?

This time of year Facebook memories remind me of how far I've come in the last 2 years.

In March and April 2016 I had 2 nervous breakdowns, I hit rock bottom, then I hit rock bottom's basement.

I'd gone from undiagnosed and unwell, but functioning, to diagnosed, medicated and mentally unstable.

I checked myself into Hollywood Clinic because I had become a danger to myself and my children.

I spent 10 days in the hospital where they adjusted and added to my medication, and did art and crafts.

When I got home I slept for 14 hours straight and existed in a zombie state for weeks.

My husband left his job to look after me and the girls.

It was the hardest thing our family has been through.

I had a standing weekly appointment with my GP, I kept telling him that I didn't feel right, and at one of these visits he gave me the details of one of his other patients, telling me to have a chat with her about essential oils.

Little did he know that would be the start of an amazing journey of recovery, self love and growth for me.

So much has changed in the last 2 years and it all started with one drop of Balance essential oil.

I'll be talking about how I used oils and supplements to support my mental health recovery, and the changes I have made over the last two years to create a Wellness Lifestyle at my Natural Support for Mental Health class next Friday morning, tickets and more information available via the event ticket 🎫 link in my bio.

I'm so thankful that my mum and step-dad came over from Adelaide to "Nanny-sit" the girls while I was in Sydney.

So poignant that I saw this when I got home tonight! Good vibes...well actually great, positive vibes felt tonight! Dinner with 2 gorgeous girlfriends tonight that I both know are awesome individuals but didn't know each other before...well like the quite says...you just feel it! Positive energies and quirks together is like forming a supergroup...like Swedish House Mafia...something special! Prit-sticking eyebrows, singeing eyebrows and the fact that my hair is a walking fire hazard were some of the highlights of our convo tonight. 🤗😂 .

Taking #tenminutesforme to breathe and relax before I head home.

Travel nerves are trying their hardest to shake me, travelling on my own is pushing me out of my comfort zone.

My word for the year F E A R L E S S isn't about not feeling fear, it's about feeling the fear and doing it any way.

Fearing less as I take each step towards being fierce, brave and strong.

Learning lessons along the way.

Comfortable shoes trump fashion when you walk miles each day. Next time leave the boots at home.

You don't need to bring as much as you think you do. The more you bring, the more you have to carry with you. It's okay to leave things behind.

A good quality 4 wheel suitcase is something to invest in. Put it on the wish list, along with noise cancelling headphones.

It's worthwhile bringing your yoga mat. Focusing on yourself and moving your body each day does powerful things for your mind.

Taking time to rest and nourish yourself can still be a priority when travelling if you set that intention.

See you soon Perth, it's good to be heading home.

I'm so glad I scheduled time to rest after the excitement of convention.

I spent this morning saying goodbye to the last of my dõTERRA family as they headed home, I shopped to get gifts for my girls, and then I rested.

I had a much needed nana nap, and went for a wander in the rain to get a Stacey Chai.

Yes, I found Stacey Chai in Sydney.

@cafe259 do a sticky chai latte, with my favourite coconut milk 🥥 🥛 I had one yesterday and went back for another this afternoon. Wish I had found Cafe 259 earlier in my trip.

I'm overflowing with love and gratitude, but the introvert in me needs alone time to recharge before I head home to 6 people who have missed me, and who I have missed.

Sydney is such a busy, high energy city, all hours of the day and night, which is great when you want a @nicerelaxingthaimassage at 10pm.

Tonight I'm staying in though, I've got some leafy greens, fresh figs, chips and dip for an easy supper.

Do you make time to rest and recover a priority?

Scheduling time to rest has made a huge difference to me since I set the intention of making my health a priority.
