It is with pride and excitement that I get to announce that on Saturday night I was honoured to receive The Entrepreneur Award from @twenty.8.essential which was awarded "to someone who is a change agent on all levels, for entrepreneurial thinking, income generating and for the most creative based on the greater good for all."
A few years ago I completed the Twenty8 Health & Lifestyle Education Program and for me it was more than just another course, it was literally a life changer. It was during this program that I realised I no longer wanted to work behind a desk, it started to burn a fire within me, and it lead me into studying Kinesiology and then some years later opening the beautiful Revitalise Centre. @kimmorrison28 and Twenty8 helped me heal from all the health issues my family have gone through, so that I can now help others on their healing journey.
I am beyond grateful to Kim Morrison for teaching me how to be the best version of me, for holding space, and for giving me the tools and resources I needed to learn in order to love my self and realise that self care isn't selfish - it's essential.
When you next visit us at The Revitalise Centre be sure to check out the Twenty8 range of Essential Oils we have for sale - trust me they are life changers!
Let's be honest, Health + Wellbeing is a big industry promising much and overwhelming many.
Whether you are wanting to incorporate more self-care into your day or eat a diet rich in real food, it can be overwhelming and confusing. Often we know what we need to be doing and need the accountability to take the steps to regain our health + wellbeing. Other times we have the desire to make change but we just don't know where to start.
As a coach I offer choices which simplify the overwhelm and enable you to take the steps in order to achieve your goals. Steps which provide sustainable change and results. Tools for your very own tool kit that you can reach into when needed.
I know from experience that the more you sit and think about things the less likely you are to do something. Now is the time for YOU.
I wanted to let you know that I am heading away for September and have limited coaching spots left for August. If you are wanting to get started or reset your own health + wellbeing, now is the time to book in. Book between now and September 5 to take advantage of current prices.
If this makes you feel even more overwhelmed and not sure where to start, why not book in a complimentary session with me?
IIf there is not a time suitable please send me a message and we can work together to make the time work for you.
SO keen for this book, I have heard so much about its production and what it will contain and I think a lot of people need this kind of knowledge for both themselves and to share with others, to empower the kids in our lives and strengthen the relationships we have with those we love more than ourselves... ⠀
I’m actually in love with this woman!! Hahaha @kimmorrison28 thank you for allowing me to lead your retreaters this morning with an Aroma Yoga class and reflective meditation. Thank you for my gift of so many products too omg I’m going home to further love myself up if that’s even possible with @twenty.8.essential oils. Only the best with this angel illuminating hearts and souls. #selfcare#twenty8#essentialoils#onlineyoga#mefirst#kimmorrison
28... YOURE LATE! Since I was 26, it had been slipping that I’m 28 when someone would ask my age, I think I’ve been waiting to be 28 for a long time. I’ve been blessed with a great support system through friends and family and friends that are family, I have successfully reached some amazing career goals, I have suffered tremendous loss, as this is my first birthday without a early morning phone call from my dad, and I have had to learn to grow up quick in a completely different city that came with a huge culture shock the minute I signed my first lease. This big apple has definitely taken a bite out of me ... 28 I’m so ready for whatever pre30 milestones, surprises, and left turns you’re bringing. 8.8.18 #28looksfreakinggreat#28 &gotitmade #28donthate#happybirthdaytome#birthdaygirl#twenty8#lovemesomeevennumbers#thebestisyet2come —-fun fact 28 is also my favorite number

It gives me great pleasure to share that Twenty8: The Age of Power was featured in the Summer Special of Kindred Spirit magazine. I feel so honored that my words are glistening the pages of this magazine, it is a dream come true.
When I started out writing my story I did not have a long term plan, I just knew I needed to write. And so I did. It is very obvious to me that there is indeed a path for each one of us, as long as we follow the spirit and calling of our own heart.

Over the past six months I have loosened the need for perfection and have been taking a more moderate approach. On the whole, taking a more moderate approach has been working for me. I have enjoyed eating ice cream with the boys over the summer months and a glass or two of wine when we have gone out for dinner… But in the last month I have noticed some habits slipping back in under the guise of ‘moderation’. From suggesting we have pizza for dinner to baking for the sake of taste testing, to having the extra two or three glasses of wine. Choices which perhaps don’t serve me all the time. Which has lead me to questioning if the word moderation can become an excuse to over indulge more regularly than not?
Head to https://minbenstead.com/2018/07/28/taking-a-moderate-approach/ to read my article on taking a more moderate approach.

According to an Environmental Working Group (EWG) study, 72% of products with the ingredient “fragrance” contained endocrine disruptors called phthalates. Phthalates have been linked to diabetes, obesity, liver and breast cancer, hormone disruption affecting fertility and development as well as linked to ADHD and Autism in first and third trimester prenatal exposure. If you see the word ‘fragrance’ or ‘parfum’ on a product it means the ingredients list can include up to hundreds of synthetic chemicals. Put it back on the shelf. Here is an easy alternative recipe for air freshener that I make and use in our house, it’s in our toilets.
1 glass amber spritzer bottle
Your choice of organic essential oils (not synthetic, I use Twenty8 essential oils. They are a local Australian company who make divine organic essential oils and skincare @twenty.8.essential
Add water to spritzer bottle and add a total of 6 drops essential oils. I used two drops orange, two drops pine and two drops grapefruit. Shake before you use and spritz spritz spritz. Breathe it in knowing you are not harming your body, or the environment. Chemical free living can be simple.
Love Lindt mint choc? You’ll love this easy healthy paleo version!
📝 100g coconut oil (melted), 1 cup cacao, 4 TBS honey, 1/2 cup desiccated coconut, 1 tsp vanilla 1 pinch of salt & 1-2 drops of @twenty.8.essential organic Peppermint oil.
.👉 combine in Thermomix 3 min 50 degrees speed 2. Scraps sides then 2 mins 50 degrees speed 2. Pour into moulds and freeze for 10 mins. Easy!! .
Making a mess is half the fun. 😍 oh and heart shaped moulds are a must obviously 🤗 .
I am so blessed & fortunate to have spent the weekend at the stunning Sunshine Coast with a group of amazing women and the beautiful, inspiring, kind @kimmorrison28 at the Twenty8 self care weekend 💜🙏
It was a much needed reminder of the importance of self care. For the last 12 months, self care has really become a priority to me, and i am so glad i have realised how much it is needed & deserved.
I encourage all of you out there to spend a little more time on you. Because YOU are so important, beauitful, loved and deserving 😘
One of the other take home messages from the weekend i thought was important to share is rather then questioning "why me?" In the face of adversity, ask yourself "why not me?"
Perspective can change everything 🌻

Like a dream come true! Last night @kimmorrison28 invited me to be her guest speaker with my other goddess hero, @carren_smith at her annual @twenty.8.essential Self Care Retreat. An incredible 65 people were so open to receiving what we all had to share, hearing from our experiences and creating some self care rituals of their own. I must say these events light up my soul. I literally watched Carren Smith in awe of what she had to share and then when Kim introduced me I really wasn’t sure what I was even going to say. But from out of no where (we call it divine guidance) the words can pouring out of my mouth and I just wanted to share my story and how yoga and other self care rituals have saved me. I highly recommend you check her out and get to one of her weekends at one time in your life. I’m still blown away by these women. #gratitude#selfcare#kimmorrison#carrensmith#aliveyogi#twenty8

From Ovvio, I’m trying it one of their new latte blends (plus a restock on my Peace Bambino collection, annnnd ... I cant remember which others (😬 don’t mention it to my husband)), and from Twenty8 it’s moisturiser, some fav essential oils plus trying out Myrrh for long standing niggling coughs. #thegrowproject#fuel#tea#essentialoils#organic#qualitarian

I’ve been talking with a bunch of you about essential oils lately.
Frankincense is one super amazing oil, that gets overlooked.
It matters where essential oils come from, how they are are extracted and stored.
Frank is a common friend in our house! We often diffuse him or put a few drops in a bath.
Stay tuned for some more education ideas on how you can get some more of these incredible friends in your life.
Thanks @drjoshaxe for reminding us of these amazing benefits.
I know I’ve said it before, but honestly I’m so grateful to have these oils in my life ❤️ I haven’t been very well for almost a week now, but with lots of loving calls and messages from Mum, and some chats with friends, and some Netflix, and these oils, I’m getting through it bit by bit. •
I know the photo is hard to see, but the quote on the standing card says “Steady head and centred heart, I stand strong throughout the challenges life presents”. Some of the oils in this photo I used in a bath along with Himalayan salts, and some of them I put on my body with jojoba oil and magnesium spray. Smells so goooood 💐❤️🍃
Thank you Kim for the amazing work you do with your oils and your fantastic Aroma Cards! Don’t know where I’d be without them (and my gorgeous Mum) 🌻 @twenty.8.essential @kimmorrison28 •
There is not one size fits all when it comes to self care. It differs for everyone and changes depending on our needs.
@helenpadarin recently summed it up perfectly when she was quoted as saying that we should find something that we love to do that doesn’t require input from anyone else.
What do you love to do that doesn’t require input from others?

Siapa yang ? Mula-mula kenal pendiam tapi bila dah kenal each other about for 3 years dia lah yang annoying, menganjing, gelak tak ingat dunia dan selalu bising.

@wholebegins and I are thrilled to present Sunday Soul Sessions in both St Andrews and Sandringham. Each session will be based around a theme and will begin with a grounding mediation and finish with a nourishing treat.

Book into each session individually or save by booking into all three at either location.
#Twenty8 Thank you Lord Jesus for allowing me to see another year! 🙏🏽 I’ve had a lot of ups and downs, smiles and frowns, happiness and heartache but one thing is for sure, YOU have not given up on me Lord Jesus! ♥️ Where I am today isn’t by accident, YOU are shaping me and preparing me for what’s to come tomorrow. I TRUST in you Lord God and in your plan! Happy Birthday 🎂🎈🎊🎉🎁 to me and hoping for many more years to come #Blessed#Thankful
That girl a soul shaker
She got that rebel yell
That girl a whole caker
She eat it all herself
Out the window singing Lucy in the sky
Pack of demons and the devil by her side
That girl a hard worker though
She be her own supporter
