Goji Goodness

Hey Lovely! This week a good friend of mine asked me when my next blog post was coming. I told him to check out instagram as I have been doing a series of ‘mini-blogs’ on there. He gently reminded me that not all of us are on instagram(!) so I thought it only fair that […]

Life Lessons from Ko Samui

Well, it’s coming to the end of what has been an amazing week here in the south of Samui. I have celebrated one year of being married to my best friend, completed The Broad Place’s 7 Day Mind Cleanse, practiced yoga every day and planned a helluva lot of new and exciting things but more […]

Extreme Joyriding: Long walks, Nature and Coconuts

As part of my 7 Day Mind Cleanse from The Broad Place one of my ‘tasks’ for the week is to actively take part in Joyriding. Which simply means the art of doing something that makes you happy. Yesterdays Joyride was beyond indulgent. We walked for 2 hours along the most beautiful beach I have […]

Hitting the Re-set Button

As I sit here in Ko Samui I can honestly say my breath has been taken away…there is so much beauty here. The ocean, the swaying palm trees and the friendly Thai people. Here I feel truly at peace. But it’s more than a little relaxation. It’s a deep connection – a grounding to the […]

Bronzed Skin for The Shade Hunter

Honestly. Don’t you just love summer? I mean, it’s ridiculous! Warm days, amazing fruits and vegetables in season, outdoor exercise and if you live in Hong Kong only the occasional typhoon to contend with! Yep, I can’t complain. I know there’s one thing you think I left off my list – a glowing summer tan. […]


First of all, I would like to know if anyone actually says that. Second of all (and far more importantly) my healthy Hong Kongers I would like to tell you that the wait is over because TODAY, 1st August, Genie Juicery has opened its flagship store in IFC Mall. Here are the important details: Genie Juicery Opening […]

The Shade Hunter Strikes Again

Have you got Monday blues? Don’t worry. I’ve got some VERY good news for you…. YOU NEED TO GO SHOPPING It’s ok, thank me later (as if you needed your arm twisting!). You want to know why? Summer is here. I mean we’re just about in August and everyone is getting ready for a (northern […]

I’m On A Mission

You better sit down for this…I don’t want to shock you so much that you fall over…but guess what? WE ARE MORE THAN HALF WAY THROUGH 2014. I mean, honestly. Where did the first half go??! So…how are you? I haven’t been by in a while. We’ve had a new addition (puppy, not baby!) to […]

Mind Full, or Mindful?

These last few days at work for me have been crazy busy. You know those days when you actually just feel like you’re spinning because everything is moving at such a fast pace that you find yourself trying to do 239 things at once as well as fit in a daily workout, eat well, feed […]

Spring Cleaning

Let’s be honest…remember the 1st of January 2014? When you made all those promises to yourself? Your resolve to make yourself a better (read: thinner, healthier, richer, wiser…you get the picture) person? Yeah. Pretty much gone along with the last days of winter right? Well FEAR NOT because round 2 is coming up. That’s right, […]
