The Mineral Spa Hepburn Springs Fireplace

Since moving to Melbourne in May I have done little exploring of my new city or the state of Victoria. I’ve known about Victoria’s “spa country” for a few years but never managed to travel there in past visits to Melbourne or during the couple of years I lived here previously. When I was invited to visit The Mineral Spa I jumped at the opportunity to get away from my desk for a few hours and experience what the fuss was all about.

In my review I detail the unique offerings of The Mineral Spa and which treatment left me too relaxed to drive. Continue Reading

I don’t mean to sound like the grinch but I think it’s safe to say that nowadays the festive season is all about gluttony. Food, presents, food, drinking, food …… and more food.

Urban Remedy Juice Cleanse Official Lineup

Juice detox, liver cleansing, elimination diets … These are now phrases we hear in our everyday language. If you haven’t done one of these yourself chances are you still know someone who has. There are almost as many critics for the “detoxing” phenomena than there are believers, but irrelevant of your current opinion it is hard to deny the fact we now live in a far more polluted world than we used to.

You can read about my experience with a juice detox to get a glimpse of what is involved. Before you jump in to a detox you should know these 5 things Kylie has shared with us.  Continue Reading

Urban Remedy Juice Cleanse Official Lineup

I am one of those people who always thought “detox” and “cleanse” programs were a bunch of hot air. I knew that they must have a purpose for a select few people but my general belief is you should just eat well all the time and you won’t need to clear out your system. Then again, I am not a smoker or a drinker (unless it is a brightly coloured drink with a piece of fruit on the side and a little umbrella) so perhaps I am not exactly the target market anyway? When I recently found an Urban Remedy gift voucher in a gift bag I got at an event I thought to myself, “why not?”. So here it is, a review of a juice detox by a skeptic. Continue Reading
