Karla Deras red nails gold jewellery

Sometimes I have this sneaking suspicion that I’m a tomboy in a pretty dress, and my nails – chewed, uneven, sometimes polished but always chipped – are my disguise’s undoing. From afar I look well put together, but upon closer inspection, I’m still just the kid whose knee socks were always falling down at school.

I so envy those girls who, from head to toe, look like they’ve been buffed. They have fabulous shiny hair, they can wear lipstick all day and all night, and they have long, elegant talons. So sexy, so perfect, so eagley.

I really don’t think we need a big explanation here, ’cause these bedroom aquariums are pretty much amazing. I wonder if, when the zombie apocalypse comes, if we’ll all be sleeping underwater. No wait, that doesn’t make sense…does it??

Regardless, dream and enjoy!

POPS3

It seems as though this Frozen Yogurt aka FROYO craze just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Look I am not complaining, it has certainly made a feature in my summer diet over the last two summers. Who am I kidding? I FROYO all year round. So much so, that the term FROYO itself has made the rather odd but occasional transition from a noun into a verb. “Oh hey I am just going to go FROYO, want to come?” “Do you FROYO?” “Of course I FROYO!” Well now you can FROYO yourself at home with my delicious popsicle recipe. So prepare yourselves for a damn delicious summer treat with my HANDSOME POPS OF FROYO.

What you will need:

1-2 cups of organic plain or vanilla yogurt
Half cup of mixed summer fruit eg Berries, Peach, banana, watermelon, Mango
1 tablespoon of Honey
½ tablespoon of lemon juice (optional)
6-8 small paper cups
Foil
Wooden popsicle sticks
Blender

pops1

What you will need to do:

1. Add selected fruits, honey and lemon juice, to the yogurt in a blender. Blend until desired consistency.
2. Put the paper cups onto a plate or a flat tray. Cut strips of foil big enough to cover each cup individually.
3. Pour mixture into the cups at about ¾ full. Add left over pieces of fruit if desired.
4. Once the cups are filled cover each cup with foil and make a small slit in the centre of the foil where the wooden popsicle stick will go. This will help to hold the popsicle stick in place while the yogurt freezes.
5. Add the popsicle sticks and place the FROYO pops into the freezer. Once your FROYO Pops are done, just peel back the foil and paper and enjoy! Simple, easy, fun and delicious.

So there you have it. FROYO has made its way into the hearts of people all around the world and now you can have it whenever and however you want.

If we weren’t already obsessed with the beach, Dr Gary Greenberg from Minnesota has given us another trillion reasons to love it even more.

Magnifying sand 250 times through a specialised microscope, we can see its true beauty. Grains are made up of crystals, shell fragments and volcanic rock – many of them in vivid colours and intricate, fantastic shapes.

I don’t think I’ll ever walk the beach the same way again.

Pipeline Winter 2013 from Eric Sterman.

Known around the world, Pipeline in Hawaii is home to some of the largest and deadliest waves in the world.
Almost every day of the year surfers from around the globe head to Pipeline to try their hand at conquering this infamous break.

Many, many films and documentaries have been shot at Pipeline, but none quite like this.

Using a GoPro camera and a DJI Phantom quadcopter, aerial photographer Eric Sterman has captured some of the world’s top surfers taming these massive waves.

The result is a truly breathtaking video from a perspective which used to be impossible for filmmakers to achieve without hiring a helicopter.

Even if you’re not a surfer, these few minutes will awe and inspire.

Snowy city

There’s a phenomenon that’s been conspicuously (and happily) absent from my life ever since I moved to Australia 10 years ago: the post-holiday grumpies. After Christmas, Australians cleverly move right into festival season, keeping up the lovely momentum of holiday and summer happiness. It leaves us very little to look forward to during our lukewarm winters, but that’s a different story.

But Northern-Hemisphere-dwellers, I still feel your pain. The holidays are over and all you’re left with is the unique misery one feels when staring at piles of dirty snow, thinking about an annoying resolution to eat more kale and knowing there’s no hope of seeing a blade of grass until April.

Cheer up! I have a brilliant solution, and it has everything to do with shopping. Everyone knows the best kind of emotional band-aid involves spending money, so after you buy your kale, get thee to a mall.

Here at WAH HQ we love a good summer juice! After trying so many green juices from completely vegetable to all fruits, we have found that a mixture of fruit and veg makes the perfect green smoothie. Not too bitter, not too sweet, 100% pure goodness for your body.

Obviously we had to share this with you! So here it is…

What you will need:

1 cup Coconut water (fresh or organic bottled)

½ cup Coconut flesh

1-2 handfuls Spinach

1 handful of Kale

½ chopped Cucumber (without skin)

2-3 Passionfruit pulp

1 Kiwi fruit diced (no skin)

1 Banana chopped (optional)

Chia seeds (your choice how much)

Organic Protein Powder (see product instructions)

Frozen Berries to serve

What you will need to do:

1. Using a high speed blender, puree the spinach, cucumber and coconut flesh. Add water initially to allow ingredients to mix properly.

2. Add coconut water and Kale and blend on high speed.

3. Add passionfruit, kiwi and banana to the mix. Coconut water or normal water can be added when needed to create a drinkable consistency. 

4. Finally add protein and Chia and mix on a high speed until smoothie perfect. Taste to test. Add extra fruit or veg depending on how sweet you like your green juices. If you have a sweet tooth add a touch of organic honey.

5. Pour into a jar glass and add Frozen berries on top to serve.

Experiment with different fruits and add ons for variety.  Green Juices are a healthy and quick way to get your serving of fruit and veg daily but they should not replace all of your meals. Remember by being good to your body, your body will be good to you.

wah glow

We all want to look radiant and glowing in the summer. Sunkissed and healthy skin just makes you feel better. By being kind to yourself and putting into your body all the goodness it needs, you will surely get that summer glow in no time.

Here are our top 5 ways to get that perfect ntaural summer glow you all want!

1. H20- Water is key here guys. On average an adult should be drinking between 2-2.5 litres of water a day. Remember your skin is the biggest organ you have so keep it hydrated.

2. EAT HEALTHY- We all know that foods with high fat, sugar and salt content are bad for you. Overeating foods with such content can cause many health problems. Our advice? Aim to avoid crazy diets and eat a healthy well balanced diet of vegetables, fruits, protein and good carbs. If you do this, having that piece of cake every now and again is not going to harm you.

3. TREAT YOUR SKIN DAILY- It is very important to have a daily skin revitalising routine. The summer sun can be harsh which means your skin needs just as much care as your body. Cleanse, tone, moisturise, sunscreen and exfoliate. It is simple really. Choose products with natural ingredients that won’t be harsh on your skin. We love, the his & hers range from Milk & co. It is all natural, affordable and created with Australian families in mind.

4. CHOOSE A SUPERFOOD OR 2: Try to snack on a super food or add it into your meals each day. For instance, add acai with your muesli, snack on Goji berries when your get hungry between meals or add quinoa to your salads. A superfood a day, will benefit you immensely.

5. BE KIND TO YOURSELF: Stress can cause many health problems and leave you looking tired and run down. So be kind to yourself. Your days might be busy but most people can find half an hour of down time to do something for yourself. Take a walk along the beach, read a book, meditate, exercise, sit outside in the sun. Do what makes you happy.

We’ve just returned from Jervis Bay on the NSW South Coast in Australia. Home of the most beautiful beaches in the country and are empty almost year round – unbelievable. We had plenty of time and space to really put our new towels and umbrellas through their paces and boy did they hold up! We still have some Flamingo Bahamas Beach Towels and Hideaway Full Print Umbrellas for sale at the E-boutique!
