A little about you, what you do and why we think you are great:
I’ve always felt inspired by beauty and extremely connected to health and wellness. My beauty career began in mainstream makeup artistry but as my knowledge and passion increased and my career grew I started to feel there was a huge disconnect. Contributing to the mindless consumption of toxic, mainstream products began to feel downright dirty and the deeper I dug into the beauty industry, the more disillusioned I became. My own personal transition to natural beauty was the first step and instantly I knew that this was something that needed to be shared! As I began to spread the word, first to friends and family and then slowly into my own work, I started to realise that I had an opportunity to make a profoundly positive impact on people, animals and the environment – the rest is history!

What is your passion and purpose in life? What gets you up out of bed each morning?
See above! I feel so blessed that I’ve been able to turn the thing that gets me out of bed in the morning into a successful business and that through being able to share my passion and purpose I’m contributing positively to the health of both people and our beautiful planet.

A moment or time in your life that ignited a ‘revelation’, presented a ‘fork in the road’ or was a complete ‘game-changer’ that took you in a new direction, closer to your truth?
In the process of transitioning to natural makeup a friend referred a job to me to do the makeup of a very well known wellness personality who required an all natural make up artist. At this stage I didn’t have a completely natural kit and I hadn’t had the opportunity to test the performance of natural products at a professional level. It was a sink or swim moment. Thankfully I swam! I bought enough natural products to get me through the job, they performed beautifully and I never looked back.

Daily Rituals for the:
Mind/Soul: meditation and visualisation are so important to keep me balanced and connected to my vision – they are my daily non-negotiables at the moment.
Body: I love to move my body daily. There’s nothing like a run or sweaty gym workout to get me feeling strong and healthy. Plus nothing beats that post workout glow!
Inner: I’m really conscious about what I put in my body to fuel me daily! To stay energised I’m all about fresh wholefoods, nourishing bone broths and delicious, nutritious smoothies.
Outer: Obviously, this is my area of expertise. When it comes to the products I put on my skin it has to be all natural and organic. I can’t go past oils at the moment for my skin, especially in the drier winter months. I love jojoba for the face, coconut oil for the body and lots of beautiful essential oils during the day to keep me smelling delicious and feeling energised – Sandalwood is at the top of the list right now!

Natural Beauty to you is:
Natural beauty to me is loving and valuing yourself enough to use the healthiest products possible for yourself and for the health of the planet.

Favourite natural health / beauty products + brands:
There are so many – it’s impossible to name just one! For cosmetics, Inika and Ere Perez are two of my faves and for skincare and internal health I absolutely love Beauty Chef and Edible Beauty.

Ultimate way to spend the day:
I know it sounds cliche but for me it’s all about balance! Ideally I love to wake up early and get some work done before hitting the gym. I love to finish a workout with a sauna session and dip in the pool at icebergs, then home for a nutritious and delicious breakfast/lunch. A great afternoon usually involves some more productivity, a stroll along the beach and a beautiful home cooked dinner with friends.

Tips for ways in which you live a holistic life:
Stay true to yourself and figure out what works for you. We each have different things that motivate, inspire and make us feel good. Once you can connect to these it’s amazing how quickly the rest will fall into place.

Favourite Mantra or Affirmation:
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
