Waking up to the alarm sound on a cold Monday morning, the first thought I had was “you know what Anna, you don’t NEED to be up at 5am, just give yourself this one morning of sleep in…”, and almost as soon as I thought it, I caught myself with that negative mind-set and reminded myself I am not here to live mediocrely and be defined by average, I am here to live extraordinarily – so off the covers went and up I got.
The session was like most others, most mornings. I felt good, I had energy, I smashed a PB (personal best) on at least one of the reps on at least one of the exercises, I laughed, I said hello to some of the other regular 5am gym go’ers and I pressed ‘end’ on my workout app by 6:20am.
The usual high-five from the app happened telling me the PB I hit that day and the count of how many workouts I had completed occurred.
Only today, when the number landed on its final count, I smiled ear to ear.
200 work outs with my amazing trainer Lochie who uploads my food plans and work outs in to an app that I use daily.
I went home feeling fulfilled and sore – and that particular morning doing my gratitude’s, I put “my health and commitment to having health & vitality as my #1 value”.
Jumping on FB for the first time that day, I celebrated my 200th work out with a status and checking my notifications I saw the memories notification Facebook has now – something I actually LOVE checking daily to see what I was doing on this day 1, 2, 3, 4 even 5 or 6 years ago.
Except this time, a status made me stop dead in my tracks, and another smile ear to ear broke out.
It was the exact same day, July 25th 2010 – 6 years ago.
From celebrating having such a strong value around health and vitality, around moving my body every day and then honouring it with clean food and natural supplements – to this. Completely not honouring my body, and neglecting it for WEEKS with no exercise or clean / health / nourishing eating only a mere 6 years ago.
6 years to the day and I honestly don’t think I could be a more different woman.
Here is the thing though, something has been swirling in my heart for a while and this was just the slap in the face I needed to put hand to keyboard to write it for you.
That jump, from binge drinking, sleeping in, recreational drug use, no exercise (ever), choosing to skip meals and / or eat crap majority of the week to … rising at 5am daily, moving my body 7 days of the week, eating clean nourishing whole foods, complementing my food plan with natural wholesome incredible supplements …. DID NOT HAPPEN OVER NIGHT.
The other day, I was talking to my girlfriend in the kitchen about the life we get to live now and the advice or statuses that I write coming from that place of health and happiness now, and I said…. “you know what babe, I actually get that some of the stuff I say or write would piss people off, I bet they do sometimes sit there and say ‘what-the fuck-ever” … because they don’t know the story behind the work and sweat and blood and tears and sacrifice its taken for me to get to the place I can write and share like I do.
Point is…. I get it.
That was the moment I knew I wanted to write this piece. Then as fate and my life would have it Facebook put two of the most opposing statuses I have written next to each other on the same day, 6 years apart.
And here I am.
So back to the story of my journey not happening over night.
LONG before I started nutritional cleansing, back when I was the girl who’d sleep in, have a big glass of coke and a packet of kettle salt and vinegar chips in bed (yep, I uhhhh, I really did that) and never ever respected her body with exercise and in turn, getting my body to its heaviest… I knew that I had to change, and so I did.
Morgan and I went to a food information night 6 years ago, where we started to educate ourselves on food. We learnt how to read the back of packets, we learned the difference between good and bad sugars and good and bad carbs, we learned about portion sizes (hardest lesson of all to learn!) and learned about good wholesome foods.
And oh SO slowly, but most definitely surely …. We started to change our diets and way of life.
I went from eating white carbs (your rice, bread, pasta, white potatoes) from 7 nights of the week, to 5, then to 4 when we felt ready, then to 2…..then to none. That process alone took MONTHS and we never once felt like we were depriving ourselves. All the while dropping grams or kg’s as I went.
Whilst switching out the white carbs (andddd things like packet sauces and gravy of course) we were completely over hauling our diet to a clean healthy one. So lots of fresh veggies, smaller sizes of meat, 2 nights of no meat a week and good carbs like sweet potato or quinoa – so the cutting of food was also replaced by new healthy eating.
Then went the coke (a cola) addiction. I never tried to quit over night. WHY? Because I KNEW if I was going to change my health, I needed to make SUSTAINABLE changes and cutting everything I had been so used to wasn’t going to give me lasting sustainable change.
So with the coke, I went from drinking 600ml – 1L of coke a day, to just ONE 600ml coke zero a day (still bad I know, but less sugar). Then I cut down to 5 days, then 3 days .. then just one over the weekend to …. None.
I never felt deprived and I didn’t struggle as I allowed the change of habit to happen gradually.
Then came the exercise. If you had of told the Anna & Morgan back then they’d end up LOVING the gym and be in it daily in the years to come, they would have laughed you to another continent.
Instead, we woke up just a LITTLE earlier than 7am – 7:30am and went for a small walk around the block. Pretty soon, we loved doing it, and wanted to wake up even earlier, and increase our exercise .. so we got up just a little earlier again, and went for 2 – 3 blocks now. It got to the point we were up at 6am every morning going for a 5-7km walk before work and loving it. It THEN got to the stage we had both dropped just over 5kg from me, 7-8kg from Morgan, from this new way of life that we felt ready to join a gym … which we did, really close to our house and went and started running on the treadmill with a few little weights.
But again – see how it was gradual, it was slow, it was what was right for us.
I have ALWAYS been open and honest (of course) as well, and shared that amongst these years of change – I had a major jaw surgery which fundamentally changed my life. Top & bottom jaw broken and re aligned to fix a severe underbite. Whilst having my jaw wired shut for close to 4 weeks, I lost another 6kg’s.
Once I was cleared to exercise again, and was able to eat ‘normal food’ (aka not soup and mash potato) – our new habits were our new way of life and I knew I was NEVER going back to how we lived and ate before.
Upp’ing our training / exercise even more and REALLY living a life of clean eating, it’s when I lost my final 6kg taking my total weight loss over almost a 3 year period to 17kg. Which to this day I have maintained (which very long story cut short, the maintenance of that loss AND feeling a million dollars is thanks to nutritional cleansing – I am not going in to the last 3 years journey in this post though but if you want to read about that I have written about it here, here and here
So you see, when I share aspects of my life now, saying things like, you can either have results or excuses, but you can’t have both, or; it’s all just a choice, sleeping in and feeling like crap or getting up and showing up even if you don’t feel like it … understand that it comes from the deepest place of understanding, because I have lived and breathed both lifestyles.
And it has been a long and crazy journey to get to the place I own the advice I now give from a loving place.
The real point to this whole piece though is this ….
START TODAY AND START SMALL.
Change can be scary. I get it.
Change can be hard. I get it.
Change can be overwhelming. I get it.
Change can feel unsustainable. I get it.
But guess what?
It doesn’t have to be any of those things if you find your own rhythm and groove with it.
When I was trying to flip my life quite literally on it’s head I knew I couldn’t do it all at once. I knew the power was going to come from slower change, one step at a time, one day at a time kind of change.
And I am imparting the same wisdom on to you now .. with love.
Start Somewhere, start anywhere, start today … but don’t start it ALL at once.
You want to stop sleeping in so much, start eating healthier, move your body regularly and start an awesome morning routine??
But where can you start small and start today?
Could it be that instead of skipping breakfast, you start to just get up even TEN minutes earlier and have a healthy smoothie? Does it mean not putting on tv at night until you have also made yourself a yummy / healthy lunch to take to work the next day? Could that just be the ONE first SMALL change you can make?
Could it be that instead of putting off exercise because you’re a bit timid of the gym, you go for a big walk every day instead? Walking is a powerful powerful exercise for the body and an excellent start in building the confidence to eventually get in the gym. Could that just be the ONE first SMALL change you can make?
Could it be that instead of getting out of bed with dread because you had another late night, you hit snooze 5 times, and will be rushed to get to work again, you commit to an earlier bed time NO MATTER WHAT for just one week – and a NO SNOOZE option for JUST one week, and see how that makes you feel? The answer is of course you can, it’s all just a choice and this alone could literally transform your days. So could THIS just be the one first SMALL change you can make?
There is a quote I love and adore by Robin Sharma that says:
“Don’t live the same life 75 times and call it a life”.
And I couldn’t agree more.
That extraordinary health, love, sex, health and happiness you seek (and is your birth right just by the way) is all on the other end of your own habits your cultivating in your life and how you’re creating your world.
I absolutely believe that a healthy body and a healthy mind are connected and to get one the other follows naturally. That was the way for me and I have seen in countless others. And once you have those two major, key, fundamental aspects of your life in order – the rest DOES fall in to place.
So start anywhere. Start somewhere. Start small. But PLEASE start today, and start with ONE THING.
The coolest thing is, once you have that one thing nailed, the healthy nutritious smoothie for breakfast instead of skipping meals or the earlier bed time and no snoozing, or the walking every single day … you tackle the next area you are keen to change.
And slowly but surely, block by block, day by day, month by month – you start to design a body / mindset and LIFE you LOVE.
I’ll never say the road to making big changes in your life is easy, it’s not, if it was every body would be doing it – but I CAN say that it’s worth it.
The gap for you now, between the life you’re living currently, to the one you want to be living in terms of your health and fitness, is simply the action you choose to get in to from today onwards, or the action you choose NOT to get in to from this day onwards. And THAT is the difference between successful people and unsuccessful ones that stay stuck where they are blaming external influences and environments on where they’re stuck.
If you’re here though, reading this blog, and you have gotten this far – it tells me a lot about you, and it tells me you are one of those successful people wiling to put in the action to make the changes in your life you so desire.
So, start today – you don’t need to wait until Monday to start making incremental changes in your life nor wait for a new season to start a new life … you can start today, right now.
And as always, I will be cheering you on the loudest – and the proudest.
As I sit here and write this on a beautiful sunny 26 degree day in Perth, we are on an excited countdown to Summer; 40 day countdown to be exact. 40 more sleeps until we can officially welcome Summer (and let us never forget the honourable mention to Christmas considering December 1st also brings a 24 sleep countdown until Santa arrives, my favourite day of the year).
With any warmer weather brings a new level of commitment to some people as they know that soon, they will be back on the beach or holidaying over Christmas, and if they haven’t been as careful in Winter, then this month or two pre December becomes the months gym memberships start getting used again, healthy eating recipes are getting googled and fitness instagram accounts are being followed.
Here is how I know this too – because my current amazing gym has gone from late cancellations and no shows every morning (I attend an F45 where you have to book in for classes) to booked out classes with no, no shows 2 weeks in advance.
I get it; Summer is coming and we all want to get ready.
Something that I am extremely passionate about however and is right up there as #1 on my values list is health. So when I see this happening, Summer coming and people fired up to get their health back I always get a little deflated that their health or looking and feeling great wasn’t their priority the whole year.
You see, without our health, we have nothing, and until we lose our health, that saying is frustratingly just that… a saying. It’s not until we are sick or feeling like absolute sh*t that we stop and go ‘whoa ok, I need to take better care of myself, without my health I have nothing.’
The above reasons (not just Summer but let’s stay on that the whole time as it’s why I’m here, writing this) are what lead me 2 years and 7 months ago to nutritional cleansing (Isagenix). Because health IS my #1 value and I didn’t want to just look good when Summer rolled around, in fact it wasn’t just about looking good for me …
it has ALWAYS been about feeling good.
I shared it on this blog as soon as I had felt and seen the results for myself – my original 30 day cleanse experience can be read here.
I started on Isagenix because I was an exceptionally clean eater and I was an avid exerciser, a keen water drinker and got my recommended 8 hours of sleep a night. In short; I did everything by the book for optimal health – and although what all that got me was looking great, sure! It didn’t have me feeling great. I was still headed in to every day lethargic, had digestion issues, poor sleep, bloating, poor skin health and the list goes on.
Alas I am digressing, if you want to read why I started and what my initial results were, as I said – click on that link to hear all about that.
Here is what I most wanted to share though. That that 30 day cleanse was 2 years and 7 months ago, and for 2 years and 7 months I have continued to put the products in my body and continued to get phenomenal results. I have also continued to have health as my #1 value and truly live in to that. So when Summer rolls around, instead of having to kill myself in the gym or change up my diet, I roll on in to it healthy and feeling and looking great. Thanks to the products AROUND my exercise daily and clean eating (of which I am also an ambassador for and will never stop) I have maintained incredible results of looking great (which I am proud of, more women, in fact ALL women should love the skin they’re in) but most importantly in my eyes, I have FELT fantastic the whole time.
My first 30 days
1 year of using the products
2 years of using the products
So yes, Summer IS coming and I know many of you will be looking for ways to get healthier yourself, to look good (and hopefully feel good in the process) – and Morgan and I want to help.
We know what this nutritional cleansing program has done for us and our lives and we know what it can do for you.
But what I most want to get you excited about or impress upon you – is that with this system it doesn’t have to end when Summer does or after you are starting to look and feel great – it is so a system that you can incorporate in to your lifestyle around how you live and eat (but as an ambassador for clean eating, I always encourage that!)
I want to be a part of a society who looks after their health all year around, who loves how they look all year around, and who FEEL fantastic all year around – I know to change the world we have to change our world first, and to impact world health (and world health is in a LOT of trouble) we have to impact our OWN health first.
So if you are ready to at least learn some more about the program and how you can incorporate it in to your life and how it can get you some phenomenal results health wise – then drop us a line at:
Or visit our vision page and fill in the contact us details at the bottom.
We are always here cheering on your choices no matter what, but I just know how good it feels….to feel good – and I want that for you too.
I’m not sure you’re all aware of this crazy fact, but…It’s May. As in, the month of May. As in, we are already 5 months in to our year, as in, next month will be half way through 2014. I personally still feel like we’re in January (or should be) but as the old saying goes, time flys when you’re having fun. And fun is an understatement for my year so far in 2014. One thing that I will never get sick of doing in this here space of mine I’ve created is expressing and showing gratitude and although it’s a little scary we are almost half way through the year, there is still so much to be grateful for in each and every one of the days that is currently whizzing past us.
I have said for many many years now that an attitude of gratitude attracts abundance and the law of attraction works in powerfully divine ways. Take today to think of all the things, the little things, going on in your life at the moment that you are grateful for….here are a few of mine.
Morgys 30th Birthday Surprise
There are many, many things I love in life but breakfast with some of my divine soul sisters is always incredibly high up there on the gratitude list. I am extra blessed at the moment to have one of my nearest and dearest friends expecting her first baby so the catch ups are even more exciting and amazing as I get to watch her growing baby bump and glowing self. I am one of Perth Cities biggest advocates for loving my city I live in and when we have gorgeous little cafes like Moore & Moore in Fremantle serving up incredible breakfasts like the above – it’s no wonder I’m so in love.
Babysitting this babe – my almost 3 year old niece
Meet Delilah. She’s almost 3 going on whoevenhonestlyknowsbutshesadorablesowhocares. She loves my lei – obviously. Wearing my high heels. Dora the explorer. Sleeping – she’s slept from 7:30pm – 8:00am since she was 5 weeks old. Vegemite Toast. Babychinos. Being adorable. Counting. The colour Purple. And la la LOVES animals – especially her adopted dog “Jess”. Uncle Morgs & I got to babysit this little angel INCLUDING a sleep over a few weekends ago and had the best.time.ever. It might sound bias but she is honestly the sweetest, cutest, most polite, divine kid going around who says please and thank you’s any chance she gets and loves to tidy up. Notevenkiddngyou. I regularly tell my sister (her amazing mama) she has ruined her chance of me ever having my own babies as I swear there is no love left over in my heart as its ALL gone to Delilah. Can you tell I’m in love?
This quote – simple. truth. love
Not much else needs to be said with this, but sometimes all we need to remember through the rush and hustle and bustle of a crazy but extraordinary life is to eat healthily, sleep well, breathe deeply and enjoy life.
My wish for you today and everyday is just that. Have a divine week beautiful.
“When you see the human body mapped out like I have, you see the absolute miracle that we are”
“If you knew who you truly are, you would be in awe of yourself”
“If you don’t feel like you are enough, you don’t feel like you have enough, so you live your life in the pursuit of having and gaining more and more”
“The way I was living was unsustainable. So even with all of my knowledge, and all of my rituals, I still fell in to the trap, of trying to please every single human in my realm. & wanting them to like me.”
“Rushing Womens Syndrome” – it’s time to put our oxygen masks on first, before we can be of service to others.”
“A little girl spinning around singing, knows she is precious, and we were all born with that knowing. She lives every moment from that place, and we were all born with that knowing. but we loose it.”
“When on earth did it enter our psychology that we need to sacrifice our health to make everybody else happy.”
Your turn; What resonated most with you in the video? Have YOU been a woman that hasn’t been taking good enough care of herself? Well beautiful, today is the day to start.

Leanne Thorpe - Beautiful mother, friend & wife & Business owner
I started Isagenix at the end of April when my beautiful friend Anna invited me to take part in a "shower on the inside". I was weighing in at 96.1kg and knew that I had to do something to improve my health and lose some weight. I am the mother of 2 beautiful children and I wanted to be able to run around at the park and play with them as well as become a healthy role model for them to be proud of. I have tried many "diets" and fads over the 6 years since having my first child and to be fair some would work, but I never seen lasting results which of course resulted in me rebounding and being lovingly nicknamed the Kirsty Alley of my family. Isagenix was by far the best thing I have ever done for my body. Within days I was bouncing out of bed, my moods had improved dramatically and I had boundless energy and motivation to get back into my exercise. Within the first 30 days I had lost 8kg and 63.5cm from across my body - there was no stopping me from there! I have been on the products since April and have now lost 19.6kg and 120cm from across my body, the best part is, being able to share this amazing gift with my family and friends to help them with their own health and wellness goals. I love this system it's so easy to use and so easy to share because it really works!
Belinda Radalj - Raw Vegan Foodie, Dog Lover & self declared food connoisseur
I have been on a long, 10 year journey to find my health and wellness. I started with the simple step of removing additives & preservatives from my diet, & ended up living a mostly raw, vegan lifestyle. But I still had niggling physical & mental health issues. Isagenix has been the missing puzzle piece for me. I feel so blessed to have been given this gift of health and financial freedom.
Brodie Cotter - Artist, Surfer, Lover of life
My wellness journey began after struggling with debilitating digestive problems I suffered as a result of a parasite I caught overseas. Not only was this uncomfortable, it very nearly killed me, twice. As a result I was left feeling tired, sore, lost and then gain more weight and was generally unhealthy. I also suffered terrible anxiety that at times seemed to paralyse me. On my return home I began to tackle each issue head on one by one all the while attempting what I was told was impossible - swimming to Rottnest before I turned 30 with two very bad shoulders. And looking back I had for the first time ever stopped following my bliss and had decided to grow up and become what I thought would make a good adult. Once I had began to feel somewhat healthier (or what I thought was healthier) I began to tackle my weight gain (I know it wasn't much but I wasn't happy in my own skin and hated my body) and I tried every detox known to man. I saw the beautiful Anna begin to flourish even more than she usually did and when she said she had completed a 30 day nutritional cleanse I told her I wanted to do the same, no matter what it was. I wanted to look fabulous for my 30th even if I couldn't feel fabulous I was going to fib my way through. I started on the President's Pak in the middle of May and have never looked back. I no longer suffer any digestive problems at all and in fact was told by a surgeon after a small operation "keep doing whatever it is you are doing" because he was so surprised at how healthy my gut actually was after my illness. I have lost 6kgs and at last check 27.5cm off my body. I have gained lean muscle mass. I am able to train so much harder than ever before knowing that my body recovers quicker over night and although I did make it to Rottnest in a team of 4, I m now tackling it in a duo knowing that this will not be a terrible strain on my shoulders and I will do it with relative ease. I no longer ache or suffer the pains that plagued my body as result of inflammation and joint problems. Not only have a balanced my body in so many ways, I have balanced my life. I have steered my life back in a direction that brings me joy, I have learnt to listen to my body, to work with it, to heal it from the inside out and allow the healthy changes inside to present themselves naturally on the outside, unforced and beautiful. I am happy and open and I LOVE my body and who I am (what an incredible turn around from a girl who actually hated herself). I have learnt so much about my body, nutrition and how looking after ourselves on a basic nutritional level will encourage and assist our bodies to operate the way they were meant to, enabling us to lead the lives we were meant to. What I believed to be a detox has turned out to be an absoultely amazing journey of total wellness - health and wealth - physical and spiritual. I will continue to nutritionally cleanse and ensure I nourish my body with the right nutrients everyday because the benefits of doing so have completely changed my life and my body. And the best part is that despite being a huge change with far reaching effects in all aspects of my life, it has been the easiest thing I have ever done.
Laura Howe - Accountant, Engaged and amazing fiance, sister, daughter & friend
My journey on isagenix started on the 20th April this year, since then my life has changed in so many ways, I have lost over 25kgs since starting on the products and keeping it off with ease. I still have a lot more to go before our wedding but I know that it is so achievable using this system. I have also decided to run with the incredible business opportunity that Isagenix presents and am now bringing in a weekly income that easily covers our rent, and car repayments!! Over the years I have tried so many products and programs but this is the first I have found that actually addresses the issues rather than providing a quick fix!

Hola gorgeous souls. I’m back, and I really mean I’m back. After a 2 week holiday packed full of business + pleasure + life changing events I am home after a 36 hour transit including 3 countries and 6 flights – oh so worth it though and I’d do it again in a heartbeat if I had to. I wanted to touch base quickly with a few little updates and just let you know what’s going on around here and in my life.
With the 16 hour time difference, 18 hour days from just wanting to soak up every.little.bit of these cities and lack of amazing wifi, there was no time for posting so I had 2 weeks of learning to let go of feeling bad about not getting to spend much time in my online space.
You have me back though – for the next ever, so stay tuned for the upcoming weeks of posts brimming to come out of my mind and on to paper.
+ I just spent the last 2 weeks living my Joie De Vivre travelling Vegas & Cabo, Mexico with my beautiful hunk of a fiance and 12 other inspiring under 30’s entrepreneurs all on track for financial freedom and purpose alignment. I had won the trip through the incredible nutritional cleansing company I’m aligned with and it was literally 14 days of jaw dropping experiences, opportunities and memory creation that will last my lifetime.
+ This little space here is getting a big update. I started this blog 2 years ago in May and it truly has been on a life changing journey with me. I have grown though, in exponential ways and I want this blog to reflect that growth, so watch this space for a big upgrade and some soulful additions coming your way with love.
+ My soul sista Peta and I are collaborating in big ways to bring you a new online space with love, soul, spunk and life changing opportunities. That is going to be taking up large chunks of time to get that launched but when it does, I want you all along for the ride.
+ The next few weeks will be all about writing for me. Content for the new site, finishing off my new ebook, putting together limited coaching packages and starting the huge content for the collaboration project. Most importantly though, hanging out and pouring love in to this space so I am looking forward to getting ‘back to basics’ and spending my days doing the stuff that makes my soul fulfilled.
There is so much more to share but I want to save it for a big post to pour some life lessons and blessings I’ve experienced recently in to you so stand by for that. The next 3 days are going to be all about honouring some other beautiful and incredible woman and bloggers I know, Anna, Emily & Brooke who will be guest posting whilst I get my feet back grounded on Australian soil so I can’t wait to share the amazing posts they have written with love for you.
My perfect day begins and ends with the sun. I wake up as it streams through my big glass windows waking me next to my fiance in our beautiful big warm house by the beach (or with rain pattering against the glass in winter).
I get up and drink my breakfast smoothie and laugh and smile and feel energised about the day ahead. I go for my morning run or do some yoga, or even both – time is not against me so I plod along as I please smiling all the while at how overwhelmingly grateful I am for this day.
I then have some hours engaged with my clients – I show up in our space online or in the corner of an organic coffee shop – with love & ready to give all of me and my advice, buzzing with energy as we dig deep and work on carving out their life’s path and souls purpose. Each client walks away every time feeling aligned, excited and closer to living their own dream life.
I then get back to emails in my business partners (thats you pK!) & i’s dream office and we have our daily business meetings with natural sunlight streaming through the office, with beautiful views so we are constantly inspired and connected to our source. The meeting goes for however long we want to sit and talk about how we can give more, increase the love and good will factor and how else can we show up for our thriving community we’ve created. By afternoon I’m back at our dream home by the ocean with a big delicious green smoothie in one hand, my favourite book in the other on the balcony over looking the ocean having some me time.
I have time every single night for date night with my hunk of a fiance Morgan and we eat by candlelit at home, or dine in our favourite restaurants with other best friends with no care for bed times or tomorrows.
Every night I go to bed with a smile on my face knowing for that day, I left everything on the table. I loved with out wanting, I gave without expecting receiving, I showed up, I engaged, I laughed till my face hurt & I made a difference in somebodies life (whoever I was connecting with for that day).
My ideal day is so fundamentally based around travel too. I will be in a position to look at Morgs (or call Peta or surprise my mum) and say ‘hey, let’s pack a bag and go to a tropical beach for a week or so to just unwind and relax. Or ‘lets escape to Melbourne for some shopping and restaurant hopping’ – having the freedom to do what I want, when i want with who I want – whilst always giving all of me in a loving and authentic way to inspire others to do the same encompassing my ultimate ideal days.
Sending you huge beams of grounding, love, energy & light,
One very excited, aligned and blissed out Anna xx
