Something that everyone should know about and that model Christy Turlington is proud to endorse is how to quit smoking. Being a smoker for more than ten years, Christy saw the death of her father from lung cancer and realized that she needed to learn more about the damages of this unhealthy habit. This website can help you quit smoking, learn more about the effects and educate readers on how damaging smoking really is. Remember- ‘smoking is ugly‘. So Quit.
Game on! Yesterday a team of colleagues and I from my office job entered into the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge which consisted of about 800 companies in Sydney running to support the Oncology Children’s Foundation. The OCF is a not-for-profit children’s charity dedicated to finding a cure for sick and critically ill children suffering from cancer, leukaemia and other serious cancer related illnesses. In Australia today more children die of oncology related conditions than any other disease.
The Race gathers an estimated 8,000 people and is located at Centennial Park which is roughly 6kilometres! It was a great afternoon for it and I couldn’t think of a more worthy cause, if you would like to make a donation to the OCF click here. Alternatively you and your co-workers could enter next year… What better way to begin getting fit for summer!
Something that is great about Australia is the availability of natural products we can use. My favorite is the Tinderbox line. I love their cleanser and day time moisturizer. Jurlique (available in many other places in the world) has a great toner and their Calendula cream is a godsend. For makeup removal I simply use Sorbolene cream (cheap and great for the skin), Tea Tree oil for spots and blemishes, and a great sunscreen is an everyday MUST. Bio-oil is an incredible body moisturizer for those super dry skins and helps clear up any dis-colorations and scars too. Lolita Lempicka is my fragrance of choice and a new fav is the amazing Swedish company Byredo parfums who attach fantastic pieces of writing to each fragrance.
Nikki Phillips and I are working together for the 30 Days of Fashion and Beauty and while we were having a good ol’ chinwag the other night I was able to convince her to come to a pole dancing lesson with me! Here’s a vid - Nikki totally rocked for her first EVER lesson!
I have recently been taking a transcendental meditation course here in NYC. This city can be really stressful and the fast pace and energy that is pulsing here can frequently overwhelm me. This meditation allows deep rest for the body, clears the mind, heals and lowers stress levels. Its super easy to learn and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to find peace in their daily lives!
