FIVE ON FRIDAY IS BACK! THE 5 THINGS I AM LOVING TODAY

Posted November 22, 2013

Five on Friday is back… for how long, I don’t know! But it’s here today. I’ve just recorded a new 5 things I’m loving on Friday segment. Completely off-the-cuff and unplanned. Check out the video and the summary below. CLICK PLAY TO WATCH  ________________________________________________________________________ 1) Electrically charged energy I share how this crazy, moody, electric weather in Sydney at the moment has got my creative juices flowing. I’m loving the self-inquiry, the clarity and the visions that pour forth when the weather is so unpredictable and dynamic. 2) Spirited! I share my love for the amazing ebook: Spirited: Soulful lessons on Clarity, Connection + Coming Home to You! Rach and Tara have really brought to life conversations, feelings, attitudes and insights that really ring true with my own inner wisdom. I know that you’ll feel the same thing. It speaks directly to your soul. Have you already read it? If not CLICK HERE and get your hot little hands on one. I also have to mention here that Spirited has a sister. A new ebook called Spirited 2014 Companion: Spirited Solutions to What’s Holding You Back. This book is the ‘action to the contemplation’ of the first ebook. And today you can pre-purchase the ebook for just $13. Check it out HERE. 3) Barre Body My bestie, Emma Seibold, has brought up the hugely popular Barre Body to Sydney – Bondi Junction in fact. Even better, for those that don’t live in Melbourne + Sydney, or if you just love the ballet- pilates- yoga workout so much you want to do it more, you can now buy the new Barre Body DVD. It’s awesome (tough) fun! Want it? Get it HERE! 4) Sacred Self Alchemical Oils I love the beautiful Alchemical Oils from Sacred Self. I have the Surrender + Freedom Oils which smell devine and really make me feel special. Not to mention that these oils are infused with sacred symbols, mantras and sounds, gem and flower essences, colour rays and LOVE. Check them out HERE. 5) Stream of Consciousness Writing My favourite thing to do at the moment. Pouring out my heart, inner wisdom, ego battles, distracting thoughts, shadow self – all of it. Out it comes and from pen to paper. It feels good. It opens me up to creativity + clarity. I HIGHLY recommend you try it! BONUS 6th Thing I am loving My tribe in The Freedom Project.

5 ON FRIDAY – WHAT I’M LOVING THIS WEEK

Posted April 19, 2013

It’s back! The 5 on Friday Video Blog is here… I had so much fun filming this week. Mostly because it felt natural, intuitive and like I was talking to an old friend. It felt like I dropped into my heart…. Recently I was chatting to a very gorgeous friend of mine (you probably know her – fellow Health Coach, Melissa Ambrosini) about the difference between planning/preparing for a talk or interview or VLOG versus knowing what you want to say and then just dropping into your heart to come from the most authentic and natural place you can. We both agreed that the latter, although can seem scarier, is the most rewarding and satisfying experience. Well that’s what happened with this VLOG. I knew the 5 things I wanted to share with you, and well… that’s it. Nothing drafted, nothing formulated. I hope you enjoy hearing about the 5 things I’m digging this week. Here’s a little summary: For the first time I mention a new offering I’m creating based around yoga + wellness. I also share my latest read which is helping me find my strengths. There is a little reminder in there about my Renew Yourself eCourse which has been hugely popular over the last couple of months. For those of you that emailed me – I share my favourite mineral make-up brand. And last, but certainly not least I share some news around my upcoming eBook that’s in the works Exciting times! I would love to hear your thoughts and of course don’t forget to share with us what YOU are loving this week! Love + light to you, Cx Read more

5 ON FRIDAY – MY BEAUTY ROUTINE

Posted March 29, 2013

Happy Easter! I know most of you are with your family and friends enjoying the long weekend and so you should. I am too! Here is this week’s 5 on Friday with a difference. I bare myself to you, 100% naked…did that get your attention? I only mean bare-faced, no make-up, nada, zip, nothing at all. Check out today’s VLOG – I filmed this two week’s ago but it’s now 1 week to go before the Wedding Day So I thought I’d share with you my humble beauty routine and expose myself au naturel. For those that are keen to note the products I mentioned. 1) Cleanse: with Almond Oil (any health food shop/online/supermarket should sell it) 2) Hydrate: with a serum from Trilogy – CoQ10 or Nutrient Serum 3) Moisturise: with Organic 100% Rose Hip Oil (I alternate between Rosehip, Coconut Oil and sometimes a Aesop Hydrator I received as a gift) 4) Exfoliate: with a natural creation. For the face: brown sugar, finely ground nuts, cinnamon, coconut oil mix. For the body I currently use a coconut flake, coconut oil and epsom (you can buy this from About Life) and follow with a lather up of coconut oil 5) Mask: using a pure Kaolin from About Life or any other Health Food Shop A BIG thanks for watching! If you enjoyed this video about my natural beauty routine, I think you’ll love my free 3-part video guide – 3 Steps to More Wellness.

5 THINGS I’M LOVING ON FRIDAY

5 THINGS I’M LOVING ON FRIDAY

Posted March 15, 2013

Hey there gorgeous. So… I’ve decided to keep my 5 on Friday VLOGGING to fortnightly. I’ve just started BSchool (OMG, stupidly excited) and Friday has now become my Study/Big Biz Brainstorm/Forward Planning day. So, moving right along. Here are the 5 things I am loving this Friday. 1) Morning Routine – Ayurvedic Rituals: My morning ritual includes one one but THREE of my favourite Ayurvedic Rituals – Oil Pulling, Tongue Cleaning + Neti. It also includes a spiritual practice that makes each day feel truly special. Watch this video from HealthTalksTV on Oil Pulling by the amazing Jess Ainscough. And read more about Neti and Tongue cleaning here in a past post. 2) Eco-friendly Candle from Still Your Mind: My meditation teacher (the loveliest woman on the planet!) from Still Your Mind has a range of accessories. I have her cushion, cotton meditation blanket and now a candle that she gifted to me after I held a little talk at one of her meditation sessions. This candle is the shiz – Lime, Grapefuit, Vetiver and Lemon and it’s 100% Australian beeswax and essential oils. Hand poured, 100% cotton wicks and toxic-free.  My favourite part? When you open the box there is a little affirmation waiting for you inside. 3) Rich Happy & Hot BSchool I’ve just started Rich, Happy + Hot B School from Marie Forleo. This course, I know, is going to propel my business and my life. I’m not doing it for more money. I’m doing it because I love my work and I want to move deeper into offering health as far and wide as I can. Watch this space! 4) Prinstagram I might be super slow on the uptake (that tends to happen with anything cool) but I recently discovered Prinstagram! I’m setting up a polariod photo station for my wedding amongst other little craft things and I need a bunch of mini pictures. Via Prinstagram I was able to print mini stickers, pictures and more (I only spent $30!) from my instagram account. There is also Poster Candy here in Oz that is doing Instagram collages. Way too cool. 3) My FREE Video Guide: 3 Steps to More Wellness I created this FREE 3-part series that you get if you jump on my eNewsletter list. I had SO much fun filming this as I explore three of my favourite (and the most common issues that come up with my clients) areas: Breathwork to manage stress, Gratitude for more positivity and Food awareness.  Want in? SIGN-UP HERE. There you have it! My 5 on Friday… Now, it’s YOUR turn. What are you loving lately? Love + light to you! Claire x Read more

5 ON FRIDAY – WHAT I’M LOVING THIS WEEK

5 ON FRIDAY – WHAT I’M LOVING THIS WEEK

Posted March 01, 2013

Welcome back to another installment of 5 on Friday. Check out this week’s VLOG to hear all about what I’m loving this week. And of course the below post includes information/links. ******* 1) Paying it Forward Last Sunday my fiance and I on our weekly ‘Sunday Funday’ outing were struck by the kindness of strangers. On this particular Sunday we headed to the Sydney Cellar Door festival. Despite being wine lovers (me, not so much the wino by I feed off his JOY for good red wine) we’d just decided to wander around to save $$ when a lovely woman offered us her left over tokens. We happily accepted them and headed straight to our favourite winery from the Hunter – Tamberlaine Organic Wines. Once there the cellar boys refused to take our tokens and insisted on giving us the samples for free. Feeling a little guilty at this point we then decided to buy a few tokens and give back to these wineries who had spent so much time and money that weekend. I had already decided that we were going to Pay it Forward too! How could we not? So I made sure to keep a few tokens aside and as we left I passed them onto a group who were over the moon to receive them. It reminded me how important it is to be kind, just because you can. To be generous with your time, money, love, attention… especially to strangers! To live outside of the ‘me, me, me’ bubble. The energy that first woman passed onto me then trickled down to another group and I’m hoping it continued you. It’s all about affecting the collective consciousness and lifting the vibrational energy. 2) A gift of jewellery I’m am most definitely still a woman who appreciates nice things. Recently I had noticed alot of images of the stunning Tara Wolf Chakra bracelets online. In the back of my mind I was thinking about getting one when out of nowhere the amazing sister duo Julia and Libby (you must check out these ladies!) emailed me to say, as new ambassadors of the brand, that they’d love to gift me a gorgeous bracelet. How’s that for manifesting! Yew! The best bit, it arrived on a day when I really needed some love. If you haven’t already, check out these gorgeous bracelets that represent either Chakras or astrology signs. I was gifted the Sahasrara Crown Chakra which is all about inspiration, enlightenment and bliss. I’m down with that! Check it out here. 3) Super Greens If you have ever worked with me as a client or spent enough time on this blog you’ll know that I LOVE my greens – fresh, dark and leafy. But I’m also a fan of good quality supplementation. Not to mention that I love a product that multi-tasks. Super Greens from Synergy Natural is a hero when it comes to greens. It includes Spirulina, Barley Grass, Chlorella and Wheat grass. No additives, fillers, binders or preservatives. I’ve been added just one scoop into my smoothies and have been feeling more balanced, energy-wise. Worth a try. Check it out here. 4) Chinese Medicinal Tea – Bo He. When I first quit coffee – quite a while ago now – I started ordering lots of herbal teas when out at a cafe. I spend alot of time at About Life and discovered this little gem. It’s a Chinese Medicinal Tea called Bo He (Organic Field Mint). On the packet it says this eliminates fire from the head and eyes and is cooling in nature. Which makes it a brilliant option for these clammy, humid days! The best bit – it helps with digestion but doesn’t have a laxative effect like caffeine can (which isn’t a good idea, this just irritates the gut to create a motion) and also leaves your eyes bright and refreshed. I LOVE this tea. Check it out here. 5) Inspirational Women Last week at the Sun Warrior photo shoot I met Kerrie Otto De Grancy. This woman – her power, enthusiasm, passion – left me in awe. She has a message that I think is so incredible. She is raising awareness around Blood and the need for donations. Her own daughter survived a premature birth from 9 blood donations. Kerrie is not working for profit, at all. She is aiming to raise awareness and more (regular) blood donations by completing her first 100km marathon. This woman is tiny but mighty. And this course is even bigger. I know that blood saved a friend’s life after she had difficulties during labour. I am forever grateful for each and every person out there that donates blood and also to Kerrie for raising awareness around this much-needed issue. I’m going to feature Kerrie soon on the blog but I just had to express my love for her and this cause. Check out more information here. ******* I hope you enjoyed this week’s 5 on Friday. Tell me, what are you loving this week? Saha to you, Claire x Read more

5 ON FRIDAY… WHAT I’M LOVING THIS WEEK

5 ON FRIDAY… WHAT I’M LOVING THIS WEEK

Posted February 15, 2013

Hello there lovers. Welcome to another installment of 5 on Friday… and yep, we are video blogging again. For some reason the universe (and many of you!) are digging the VLOGS… (a BIG huge dollop of gratitude to you and the universe) so, here I am again. Below is a write-up of the 5 things I am loving if watching the VLOG isn’t for you. This week’s 5 on Friday is all about the experiences that enrich and shape us and allow us to feel conscious and alive. Happy watching. 1) Coaching In my 1-2-1 coaching sessions I get a buzz from working with amazing individuals!  But, I’m not here to talk about my coaching (although, if you want more info drop me a line!) but to talk the experience of being coached. This week I embarked on a blog-coaching session with the incredibly delightful Rachel from In Spaces Between. This lady knows her shizzle! It was SO refreshing being told what to do and getting support where it was needed. We are human beings, sometimes we need someone to show us the way.  There is nothing wrong with arming yourself up the tools, people and experiences to make your life sweeter. (Look out for additions and change to my website and blog). ****************** 2) One Great Find  Science of Stillness This is an online program that teaches a 5,000 year old technique called Stillness Sessions.  I wanted to draw your attention to this amazing program. If meditation is something you are keen to try then please, please explore Science of Stillness more. It couldn’t be anymore easier – it’s accessible, it’s in the privacy of your own home/world, it’s easy to learn (it’s less than $300!) and it’s ready and waiting for you. Check it out here. One Life Retreat Tom and the team at Science of Stillness are holding a beautiful retreat in Bali this April. If I wasn’t getting married in April I would be there! In Tom’s words, you will leave this retreat “A more advanced version of who you were before. You will leave fuller, more evolved, more conscious”. If yoga, meditation, swimming, heart-connections, meeting new people, self-love and growth is something you are ready for in your life then this retreat is for you. Head over to here to find out more and watch a fantastic video from the retreat. ****************** 3) Heart-connections on home soil And when you can’t head off to Bali for a retreat but you need to fill your love cup? Look to home-grown gatherings that are cropping up everywhere. Like-minded people meeting together to share beautiful food, gratitude circles, meditation and more. I am in the process of building a group just like this after the idea came to me last year in a meditation session. Last weekend I was blessed to attend one such event (where I finally met Tom Cronin of One Great Find – a big old love bomb to this amazing human being!) and was totally love-stoned by the end of the experience. It felt so good to feel ‘oneness’ – the feeling of deep, inner connectedness. Maybe create your own or see what’s out there? ****************** 4) Raw C Coconut Water Natural. Sugar-free. Convenient. I was recently sent a sample and I’m totally digging it – especially the convenient 1litre tetra pack. Nothing is added in. Raw C is excited to have have chef and healthy living advocate Pete Evans as an owner and partner in Natural Raw C. Niiiice. ****************** 5) My Valentine’s Day Bundle of Love Prize Pack You know what I’m mostly loving? Reading the truly open, raw and honest entries into my Valentine’s Day competition. I’m not just thrilled to bits with the ‘completeness’ of this prize (Umm…yoga class pass, yoga mat, green supplement, yummy treats, juice cleanse, eye pillow and coaching session with moi… hello?!) but, my love cup is over-flowing reading how each of you practice self-love, including the challenges and wins you’ve faced in your journey. There is still plenty of time to enter (head over here) – the winner will be announced in my eNewsletter out on Friday 22nd of February. Sign-up to my Weekly Wellness Update here – you get a free 11 minute healing light meditation when you do! ****************** There you have it – 5 on Friday. Hope you enjoyed this week’s blog and I look forward to hear your comments and feedback. Don’t forget to hit like and share this with your friends. Until next week, saha to you. Claire Read more

5 ON FRIDAY… WHAT I’M LOVING THIS WEEK

5 ON FRIDAY… WHAT I’M LOVING THIS WEEK

Posted February 01, 2013

Hello all! Welcome to this week’s installment of 5 on Friday. Firstly, before we get into the top 5 things I am loving this week I’d like to send out a big, warm, gooey THANK YOU. I had such positive feedback from last week’s inaugural video blog that I am feeling much less terrified to try again! Your comments really make a difference, so again, a HUGE thank you from me to you. So here we are … enjoy this week’s video and of course, for those of you that prefer to read the 5 things I am loving are all below. Happy watching! 1) Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap 18-1 Hemp Almond Pure Castille Soap Made with organic coconut, olive, hemp and jojoba oil. You can use this for everything, 18 uses in fact! A face and scalp massage, body wash, hand wash, cleaner, delicate clothes wash, pet wash, shave gel, toothpaste and more! You can find this at most health food shops. 2) Buckwheat crepes Here’s the recipe I recently posted. They are just so versatile, satisfying and BLOAT-free! 3) Good Green Stuff You may have read about this recently in my 3 Ways to Get More Green Energy post. I’m so smitten with this. The best bit is that it’s not pumped with rice bran as a filler or 4) Marrok Farm Bio-Dynamic Yoghurt I usually make my own yoghurt (find out how to here!) but this is the brand I find is closest to the homemade stuff. It is creamy, fresh and incredibly delicious. I am so loving yoghurt right now – homemade lassi’s, yoghurt dips, figs, yoghurt and cinnamon for a sweet treat! 5) Yoga Yep, my love affair with yoga has deepened. In particular back-bending. After trying to deal with a chronic back injury I’m now coming out the other side. It’s still hard work, but I’m so much wiser, in tune, respectful. It fascinates me how much we can still learn. There you have it, my 5 on Friday – What are you loving this week? Feel free to share below in the comments. Saha to you, Claire Read more

FIVE ON FRIDAY – WHAT I’M LOVING VIDEO BLOG
