New Interview: Brieann Gets Wabi-Sabi With Lex Weinstein

Many moons ago I had the pleasure of training Lex Weinstein - Blogger, Artist, Stylist and “Ambassador Of The Senses,” among other things. Hers is the voice of free-thinkers, rebels, creative minds and peaceful rule breakers. Those who’ve traded the modern hamster wheel and 9-to-5 security of the “real world” for full time wandering, adventure and inspiration. True to Lex's life, our One-On-One sessions together were a trip. Spontaneous, unpredictable on and off screen adventures. We trained on the sunny shores of Burleigh Heads, in the back of her broom [...]

The Digitised Self: The Perils of Hero Worship + Who You Post To Be

The digitised self. The portraits we showcase in the 640px by 640px frame known as Instagram. Moments (more often manufactured than candid), images that we decide “will carry this message well.” It all becomes twisted when it's received as a fixed reality, a snapshot representing a life in which blemishes, bad hair days, bloated bellies, imperfection, sadness and darker shades of suffering do not exist. It's surprisingly easy to be seduced by pretty pictures. It’s easy to think the “sun shines out of their arse.”  It’s easy to think she [...]

Light Up Your Life: Holiday Thrive Guide

We love this time of year, the promise of festive times and new beginnings; plus here in the Southern Hemisphere the holiday season also means surf, sun and endless 'kini-clad days. We shed our winter coats along with any heaviness of the year and take on a lightness of being (and body). That is until December 25 lulls us into a week long food coma. Let's face it, Christmas Day forecast (for many) is MORE - family friction and food-babies THAN - "Fa-la-la-la-la". But it doesn't have to be. If [...]

Mind + Body Connection: Why We Disconnect

"To lose our connection with the body is to become spiritually homeless. Without an anchor we float aimlessly, battered by the winds and waves of life." Anode Judith The mind + body connection is a term that's thrown around like it's going out of style, so we thought we'd explain a little bit about how we see the mind + body connection and why we think it's so important. In this vlog, we're talking about why we humans are so quick to disconnect from our bodies, why habitual disconnection is [...]

Food + Mindfulness: Healing Your Relationship With Food

Today we're sharing our very first vlog, wohoo! The topic is food and mindfulness - something that's near and dear to our hearts as we've both overcome eating disorders in the past. Here's our theory: in modern culture there's so much focus and emphasis on WHAT we're eating (think: super specific diets, calculus-level calorie counting or a miles-long list of what you can't eat) and very little focus on HOW we're eating. And interestingly enough, what we've found is that how you eat is just as important as what you're [...]
