I absolutely love it when someone recommends a great massage therapist or their favourite app to help streamline their life, so I thought today I would share my first ever ‘Goddess Guide’ to my all my favourite things for health, wealth and love.
(Heads up — I am not getting paid to promote any of these products or services, I simply want to share these babies with you because I love them, and I love you!)
There are loads of these type of barre classes popping up everywhere now, which I love. I used to be a professional dancer and Barre Body takes me right back to my ballet days. I love it! If only I could wear my tutu.
These probiotic-rich veggies are jam-packed with goodies to get your guts running like a well (coconut) oiled machine. I love Peace Love & Vegetables — they are delish!
Bone broth helps restore the healthy mucosal lining in the gut. It’s jam-packed with gelatine and collagen and is also high in proline (a super-important amino acid). Learn more about bone broth plus get my bone broth recipe here.
Meditation is by far the best thing you can do for your health and the secret to my success. Jump on the bandwagon now.
Oxygen therapy is a noninvasive treatment that provides you with extra oxygen, a gas that your body needs to work well, function better and be more active.
Massage from Joanna at Still Beauty
Sometimes, the stars align, and you meet a practitioner who just knows how to work magic on your body. Joey is one of them! Every massage I have with her, I am transported to another world. Her hands are like magic.
- Primal Body Primal Mind, by Nora Gedgaudas (book)
When it comes to food, health and wellness, this is my bible. Yes, it’s chunky and full of scientific lingo, but in order to make informed, conscious choices around your food and health, you need to be well-educated on all the facts. I read it because I wanted to understand more about the link between the way we eat and our evolution, and this book helps you understand exactly how we are supposed to eat and why.
- The Body Ecology Diet, by Donna Gates (book)
I used to experience bloating, candida, adult acne and eczema. It wasn’t until I read this book and adopted The Body Ecology principles into my life that all my health concerns dramatically improved. There are so many ideas and insights in this wellness classic which have changed my life — you won’t regret reading it.
- Women, Food and God, by Geneen Roth (book)
With all my clients, in my talks, on my blog and in my book 12 Steps To Wellness, I’ve been repeating one essential truth for years: the way we eat is a direct reflection of every other area of our lives. This is the message that Geneen Roth shares in Women, Food and God. This book perfectly describes how to heal your relationship with food and how to end your tortuous relationship with your body.
Period Tracker — This app is awesome for tracking your moon cycle, which I highly recommend all ladies do.
Institute Of Integrative Nutrition
Whether you want to become a health coach or just amp up your own knowledge on health and wellness for yourself and your family, this year-long course is amazing and one of the best things you can do for yourself. I loved it!
My beautiful friend Emmily from Depths of Beauty is an organic make-up artist and she is constantly keeping me updated with the latest goodies that are actually good for you. Although I don’t wear a lot of make-up, when I do I want to make sure it’s got zero nasties and is actually nourishing my skin, which is why I love Ere Perez and Inika.
Skin Care Products
Like make-up, I am very simple with what I put on my skin. I use organic extra virgin coconut oil as my moisturiser, to take off my make-up, and as a treatment for my hair. You can find out everything else I use in this post here.
I am always getting asked where I shop and what I am wearing (which is very flattering — thank you!). A few of my favourite labels are: Sass and Bide, Alice McCall and Tigerlily.
I LOVE my YoHome bamboo sheets. We spend half our lives in our beds, so this is definitely a place I love to turn into a divine little wellness sanctuary.
If you want to be successful and wildly wealthy meditation is key.
- The 4-Hour Workweek, by Tim Ferriss (book)
When I first started my business, I thought I had to sit in front of my computer all day and night or I wouldn’t be successful. This book made me realise that it’s not about working harder, it’s about working smarter. The 4-Hour Workweek gives you all the tools you need to set up and create the freedom-based business you desire.
- Turning Pro, by Steven Pressfield (book)
This book talks about the concept of being an amateur versus being a ‘pro’. Reading it was quite a pivotal moment for me. It helped me see all the stinky, amateur habits I was relying on, and that I needed to ‘turn pro’ in many areas of my life — not just within my business. This is a quick and easy read that you won’t be able to put down.
- Simon Sinek — How great leaders inspire action (video)
- Elizabeth Gilbert — Your elusive creative genius (video)
- Steve Jobs — How to live before you die (video)
- Seth Godin — The tribes we lead (video)
- The Bondi to Bronte coastal walk in Sydney. This beach-side path along the cliffs is just breathtaking. No matter how many times I do it, it still blows my mind.
- The Noosa to Sunshine Beach walk. This is another jaw-dropping scenic walk that will get you high on Mama Nature’s love.
- Tea Tree Beach in Noosa — I love packing a picnic and heading here for the day with my family. It’s such a magical spot.
I know this might sound obvious but if you want more love in your life make sweet love to your lover.
One of my favourite acts of self-love is dry body brushing. It’s something I do every single morning without fail. You can read all about why I love it here.
Inspiring TED Talks

- Ken Robinson — Do schools kill creativity? (video)
- Brené Brown — The power of vulnerability (video)
- Dear Lover, by David Deida (book)
I believe this book is why I am with my husband today. I read it before we got together and something really shifted within me. This book showed me what is truly possible within a conscious union. It opened my eyes to the divine beauty that can unfold when two people come together, get out of the way, and choose love.
- The Gifts Of Imperfections, by Brené Brown (book)
Another supreme book from Brené Brown. I couldn’t put it down — her wit, wisdom and humor make you want to devour every word in one sitting. This book made me see that I was striving for perfectionism when ‘perfect’ doesn’t even exist. A truly powerful read.
