Exploring on weekends has been temporarily paused. As you know, we are in the midst of the biggest pandemic the world has ever seen. To all our followers and visitors, we would like to let you know that our online store will remain open, however we will NOT be shipping out anything as of today, until the worst of this is over. We feel this is the most responsible way to participate in controlling the spread of the virus.
This Valentine’s Day I’ve chosen to write a blog about self-care and self-love and how these are not selfish, but a necessity especially for mums – because you can’t give from an empty cup. You can only give love when you love yourself, when you are kind to yourself, then love will overflow to those around you.
Feeling despair over the Australian Bushfire Crisis? 10 ways to help & cope with Climate Change Distress
I hadn’t intended to write this blog, as it’s a bit removed from the running beach/travel/baby theme, but it’s been on my mind this summer with news of the never-ending bushfires ravaging Australia, and the stories from family back home in Sydney indirectly affected by the smoke and ash blanketing the sky. The intention of this blog is to share ways I’ve found to cope with the feelings I’ve felt since the start of the bushfires. I’ve since learnt that a collective name for the emotions associated with the threat of climate change (anger, fear, outrage, grief, loss, helplessness, utter sadness, despair, tiredness and a sense of being overwhelmed) is Ecological Grief, Eco-Anxiety, Climate Change Distress or Climate Despair.
