My Love ListHere’s my Love List. It’s exactly what it sounds like – a list of a few things that I’ve been thankful for, that gave me inspiration, made me laugh, made me think and things I think you should check out, because I think they might make your love list too. Lorna Jane and the Move, Nourish, Believe Philosophy. It’s pretty likely you’ve heard of this inspirational women and a crop or singlet from her line of active wear (just one? Unlikely.) is probably hanging in your wardrobe, right now. I know my husband could vouch for the fact that probably half my closet is exclusively Lorna Jane. But it’s not that the tights fit perfectly (they do) or that the tops are bright gorgeous (they are), it’s Lorna’s philosophy on life that’s the real reason she’s made my Love List. If you’ve seen my (updated) About page recently, you’ll read about how I got started on this whole health and wellness journey and notice that it was Lorna Jane’s blog that gave me the inspiration to follow my passions. She bases her (incredibly successful) business and life on three pillars, Move (your body every day), Nourish (from the inside out), Believe (that anything is possible). Lacking all three of those factors in my own life, I took her philosophy to heart and now I do all three, most of the time. The difference it has made to my life, confidence, body and energy levels is out of this world. This weekend, I read Lorna’s first book, aptly titled Move, Nourish, Believe and got madly inspired all over again. I’m adding it to the newly installed Bookcase here soon, so check it out if you like amazing nutritious food, inspired movement and a rocket up your motivation to create a life you love (and who doesn’t want more of that?). Our new (old) town After spending four awesome, happy years in the North West I am beyond grateful to wake up to this every morning, three minutes walk from our beach cottage. The owners not only allowed our dog to move in but provided a gardener and turned down the extra $20 a fortnight we offered. You really are always exactly where you are supposed to be, when you’re supposed to be there. I used to feel guilty that I’d been given all this, in our new-old town (we’ve lived here before) but now I choose to think it’s grace that brings this into our lives, not worthiness (though by grace, we’re all inherently worthy after all). I can’t get enough of the salty breeze that wafts in through my office window as I work (it’s doing it right now!) and beach gallivanting with our dog. Here he is now. Fast Food This is seriously one of my favourite meals and it takes less than 10 minutes from walking into the kitchen to sitting down, eating it.
