I recently did a magazine shoot with my mum for Yours Magazine. Professional hair and makeup artists were on hand, so our manes came out looking a little bigger than we're used to. But, hey, if it's good enough for The Real Housewives of New Jersey... It was a fun shoot :)
I also just had a short story come out in Kid Magazine. You can see a glimpse of it, below, or check out the full yarn here.
Meanwhile, maybe because it's spring-time, I've busy been reading a lot of vego books, like Kimberly Snyder's The Beauty Detox Solution and Celia Brooks’ 5:2 Vegetarian, as below. (I've gone, largely, pescatarian.) Both authors work with celebrities, as you do!
Anyway, I've noticed some similarities with Snyder's message particularly and the traditional Italian style of eating.
For example, eat 'light to heavy' (I remember visiting rellies in Turin and thinking it weird when they served us salad first, then the pasta - but that's exactly what Snyder advises to do to line your stomach first), eat seasonally plus lots of greens and wholefoods (der), cut back on dairy or eliminate it altogether (there's a reason Italians only have cappuccinos in the morning and love their fruit-based gelati), never mix protein and carbs (think how the courses are separated at an Italian wedding), and get into raw, cultured veggies.
Okay, so the Germans can lay claim to sauerkraut, but there's got to be some health benefits to all the pickled eggplant etc. Italians consume (even if it's just that they're, you know, vegetables).
Finally, below left is another healthy 'care package' Mum recently dropped off for me. Isn't she lovely? Plus, there's a pic of MasterChef fave Poh Ling Yeow to the far right - we recently had a family outing at the Adelaide Farmers Market and enjoyed some paella and pancakes at her 'Jamface' stall. Check it out! Until next time x
