What does it mean to be authentic?

Something that has been playing on my mind a lot lately is what it means to be authentic. Sure authentic means ‘original’ ‘real’ ‘not a copy’ but isn’t everything copied from somewhere? Isn’t that how we learn? How we are inspired? By seeing something or reading something, taking it in, processing it and then letting out the expression of how it had affected us, what it has taught us. So what’s original?   I guess the reason I’m questioning this is because for such a long time I’ve wanted to write again. I’ve thought about sharing my writing, but I’ve...

The healthy hair diet - by Holistic Hair

THE FOODS YOU EAT AND THEIR NUTRITIONAL VALUE PLAY A CRITICAL ROLE IN THE HEALTH OF YOUR SCALP AND THE GROWTH OF YOUR HAIR. THERE ARE APPROXIMATELY 120,000 HAIRS GROWING ON THE SCALP AT ANY ONE TIME, ALL NEEDING NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT, BUT IT’S A FACT THAT HAIR IS NOT A VITAL ORGAN OR TISSUE, MEANING YOUR BODY WILL NEVER PRIORITISE ITS NUTRITIONAL NEEDS.

Scalp and hair problems can arise from either a deficiency or an excess...

Not only does it seem nearly impossible to socialise without drinking, drinking also causes an array of issues that seem to just be accepted or ignored.Everywhere you turn, from casual dinners to promotional events or celebrations alcohol...

I own my existence

The following was originally written to a family member who expressed concern about the choices I was making in my life. Although I have still never said any of this to them, it felt better writing it for myself. It eased me through the very emotional situation. I choose to share it to empower others and emphasise that it is no one else’s place to tell you how to live your life. Of course be grateful for advice and support, but there is a line and when someone crosses it you need to stand up for yourself and what you...

Invest in yourself

So much of who we are is a result of our experiences from childhood and our lives from an early age. Whether good or bad, we learn from our past and grow from it. This early conditioning stays with us or comes back to us throughout life, to remind us how we became the humans we are.   I grew up on the unique and beautiful Waiheke Island, which some might say had and still has a “hippy” vibe to it. Even though my family was not this way inclined, I would still say that vibe is part of my roots...
