Breathe Magazine Australia

PSA: the latest issue of @breathemagazine_australia is out! If mindfulness and creativity get you going, you’ll love this beautiful magazine. If you’re into rumours about celebrities, the latest diets or how to get abs in under 30 seconds, Breathe ain’t for you.

As someone who jumped on the bandwagon of meditation, yoga and holistic living when it wasn’t exactly what I was surrounded with in my social setting, I’m SO glad that magazines such as Breathe are getting more attention. Not only because I believe in everything this magazine promotes, I also think it’s really cool for those who want to start living this way to see it as a bit more commonplace within society, especially for younger people. If Jerry Seinfeld thinks it’s cool to meditate, then so do I.

From me to you (and back to me)

Happy Birthday to my beautiful Mum, who’s new cook book I will be stealing. My mum is so damn cute and kind that she asked for this plant-based book for her birthday because one of her friends no longer eats meat. That’s friendship. That’s love. That’s my mum.

Have had a flip through this cookbook, and it is not only visually stunning but the recipes look incredible. My stomach is ready

.. and chocolate.. and wine

I would also like to add wine and chocolate to the above list, just sayin’. In my experience (you know, the whole 21 years of it) happiness comes pretty easily if you let it. Anger, frustration and stress all take a heck of a lot of mental effort to cultivate and dwell on, whereas happiness just sort of happens when you’re not focused on all the other ‘stuff’. My favourite analogy, which comes from Shawn Achor, is that it really doesn’t matter if you’re a glass half-full or glass half-empty kinda’ person, you’ve always got a pitcher to fill the damn thing up. Aka you create your own happiness. So, on this Friday afternoon, fill her up – turn the fuckups of the week into lessons, the closed doors in to new opportunities, the embarrassments into funny stories and take the empty cup to the bar. Although I think they have their own cups there

Don’t mind if I do

Happened upon this hot pink beauty yesterday while exploring my new little neighbourhood. If I didn’t have a million and one things to do, I could have sat here for hours… instead I only sat for like two!

Carry This Book

~ You’ll be into this if: you need a gift for your hipster friend, or you are the hipster friend ~

Abbi Jacobson is the co-creator of the hilarious, badass show Broadcity and this book is her most recent creation. Abbi takes the personality of real and fictional characters in our world and creates what she thinks they would carry with them – David Bowie would carry drivers licenses with all his alter-ego’s and Trump would have spray tan and ‘Building a Wall for Dummies’, obviously. Combining her insane illustrative talents and her witty style of writing, this book is unlike anything.. ever? I’m in awe of Abbi’s outrageous mind.

Treat Yo’ Self

No better way to start a book: alone, with food and a damn good coffee 🙌🏽 Taking yourself out for lunch is something to be proud of, not to feel awkward about. If you never have, you’re missing out on some damn good company (YOU)
