A Week in the Wellness Life – Kikki K Goals, Chlorophyll & Healthy Snacks.

Loving this Kikki K Goals journal, which was a lovely Christmas present from my boyfriend – it’s a great way to keep track of the many things on the cards for 2013!

My Little Pony + Superfood Raw Fudge Balls = awesome! These were super duper yummy, check out the recipe here & make your own variation!

A light ‘n tasty lunch snack. Organic rice cakes, tomato, cucumber, Caesar salt, sesame seeds & olive oil.

Water with chlorophyll (plant blood, in simple terms!) has become a daily habit for me first thing in the morning and I find it a great way to start the day feeling fresh.

How good is dukkah?! This is a super yummy Lemon & Herb one by Table of Plenty, sprinkled generously on steamed veg + a bit of lemon juice & sesame seeds too. Such a delicious light dinner or side dish.

I’d love to hear about your week in wellness, so leave a comment below! 🙂

My Top 5 Bath Products for Relaxation!

There’s not much better than melting into a warm bath after a tough day. Taking 30 minutes to allow the muscles & mind to unwind is one of my favourite ways to de-stress. I’ve made it my mission to trial lots of beautiful bath goodies for a while now, and want to share my absolute favourite picks for saying “see yah!” to stress and muscle tension. I’d love to hear your top picks too, so leave a note below with any favourites you think I should check out! 🙂

Lula Detox Bath Salts

This ones a newie in my collection, and it’s a firm favourite for a few reasons. First up, the amazing ingredients! The blend contains sea salt, magnesium (ultra-relaxing), botanicals & is infused with organic essential oils – rosemary, geranium, clary sage & lime with green tea. YUM. The salts smell absolutely divine, and the best part is the little bits of green tea & petals that float around in the bath with you. I choose this bath when I’ve had a few too many treats and on Sunday evenings to prepare for the week ahead. $24.95 from the Lula web store, comes with a cute little wooden scoop too!

Be Genki Bath Oils

Be still my beating heart! The Be Genki Tranquility Bath Oil is a LONG TIME favourite of mine, and the one I reach for most frequently. 5-10 pumps of this little hero + some epsom salts, see below, into a running bath is one of my top saviours for a day/week/month gone bad. There are three other blends in the range, Serenity, Vitality & Sensuality. I love a bath with Vitality after an epic personal training session or post-work-pre-going out when you need an extra jolt of energy to face your social life.

I have to admit I haven’t tried the Sensuality one yet, but based on the effectiveness of the other three I’d warn against using this before dinner with the folks or a long day of work meetings!

Echolife Magnesium Bath Crystals

Another all time favourite and an addition in almost all baths undertaken. These naturally harvested magical crystals are scientifically proven reduce anxiety, tension & stress due to their magnesium content, which is a mineral many of us are deficient in. Magnesium is said to keep the heart rhythm steady, bones strong & to normalise blood pressure.

We can naturally get enough magnesium by eating plenty of leafy greens, nuts, beans & whole grain cereals. Still, many people are deficient, and a magnesium bath is a quick way to replenish our stores & feel blissfully relaxed at the same time. A++. Available through the Echolife online store, & good health shops.

Faulding Epsom Salts

In an ideal world an unlimited supply of the natural Echolife salts would be on hand, this isn’t always possible, so in a pinch or when the budget is tight I grab a box of cheap & cheerful Faulding Epsom Salts. You’ve probably seen these around, maybe your parents always had a box in the back of the cupboard like mine did?

Regardless, if you want all the benefits of a relaxing magnesium bath on the cheap – this is your go to. 1/2 a cup to a cup in a warm bath will take you a good deal of the way to cloud 9 for under $10. As these salts are created chemically, I prefer the naturally harvested ones above when I can – but am happy to use these when needed! Available from most supermarkets & chemists.

Dr Hauschka Lemon Bath

Although lemon isn’t a scent regularly associated with relaxation, this fresh & citrusy bath from Dr Hauschka has a very calming and refreshing effect on me. Perfect for post gym relaxation! Available from Peachy Clean for $29.95, a little goes a long way so this is a bargain!

Bonus Tip:

To boost the wellness of your bathing experience even more, fix an alkalising glass of chlorophyll & water before you jump in the tub, and sip on it when you get thirsty. You’ll be relaxing and improving your health at the same time. Multi-tasking at it’s finest!

Something Glossy, Something Grainy, Something Green.

♥ ♥ ♥

One of the many, many perks of running a website like Wellness WA, is that we get to test out and report back to you on all sorts of beautifying and life improving products and services, so that you can minimize time & money wasting and just get to the good stuff!

Recently these three products have rocked my little world…

Bloom Colour Card for Lips – in Pretty in Pink

This little beauty friend is so awesome! How many times have you not been able to choose between gloss colours? For me, it’s pretty much every day. With this tiny guy (the size of a credit card!) you can bring along a whole host of colours with you, compactly.

I’ve found it perfect for my general indecisiveness and the colours are all very flattering on my fair skin tone. There are two other palettes available as well, found on the Adore Beauty website. The best part is the price, $14.95 RRP for 6 gloss colours AND they have a yummy vanilla / mandarin flavour.

Franc Essential – Exfoliate

One of the best exfoliators I’ve used in YONKS is from local brand Franc Essential.

It’s filled with all sorts of goodies including BAMBOO (!!!), I found that after using it my skin was the smoothest it has been in a loooooong time. I’d been using an old faithful apricot style scrub, but found it wasn’t really setting my world on fire. The Franc Essential one makes the grade, I could not stop touching my skin afterwards.

The other great thing is that the founder, Chantal, is very generous and willing to send samples so you can test out the brand for yourself!

Grant’s Liquid Chlorophyll

If you haven’t heard of it before, chlorophyll can very unscientifically be described as the “green stuff” that you see in plants and leaves.

This “green stuff” is pretty good for you, it contains lots of vitamins & minerals, is alkalising and is a source of every essential amino acid. Not bad!

I take my daily teaspoon of Liquid Chlorophyll in the mornings with a glass of water and a tiny splash of juice, it has a strong spearminty flavour and without the juice is just a BIT too strong for me, I’m kind of a wimp though!

I couldn’t describe any definite benefits I’ve noticed from taking it, however I think it’s a great inclusion if you’re looking for optimum wellbeing and it claims to naturally take away bad breath and body odour, so I like taking it, I think of it as insurance ;)!

Have you tried any of these products before?

Keen to now?
