I started Miss Eco Glam in 2009, mainly to record my own thoughts about natural beauty products. It soon led to reviewing and writing about loads of different things and connecting with amazing people. This blog really changed my whole life!
In my early 30's I did a bit of 'eco modelling'. When I got to know what the industry was like, I decided I didn't want to just do it for the money side of it, taking jobs advertising things I didn't agree with, so I made a pact to only model for eco companies. My favorite job was modelling for St Erasmus Jewelery who make amazing handmade necklaces, bracelets, earring and purses in India. The women are paid good wages too :) Check them out, such stunning stuff! Now I'm older, modelling is not something I spend much time doing anymore - I prefer taking nice pictures of my daughter!
I overcame severe depression and chronic fatigue with natural healing and now like to help others look at other ways to help themselves without resorting to toxic medications first.
I got so much better that I was able to have a baby in 2012. Lola was born by a natural, intervention free birth (a miracle considering how weak I used to be) and is a very healthy and happy baby. I am very much into 'natural parenting' and spend lots of my times researching on what is good for children's health.
I have discovered so much about the dangers that untested chemicals are doing to the entire planet (including us!). This is my passion - getting people to realise the epidemic we are facing, and also to offer solutions.
I also want to inspire people that you can create the life that you dream of. I spent many many years being very depressed and negative - so my life really mirrored that. I was desperately unhappy for 20 years, and things just never seem to get better. After I started to heal, my body and my mind, completely changed. It was then that I marvelled at the power we all have to come from such low places and sickness to much better health. You've just got to know what to do and where to start.
I feel like I am living my dream life - purely because I don't live in misery anymore, I get to travel for work (writing travel articles) and visit exotic places, but not because I am just ‘lucky’ – things only turned around when I stopped being so negative.
I signed my first book deal for Toxic World, Toxic People, A Guide to Health, Happiness, Parenting and Conscious Living’ which will be out the end of 2013 and I am currently working on my second book which is aimed at Teenagers.
