    Dominique Ludwig - The Reality of Ultra Processed Food and How to Eat For Better Health

    Dominique Ludwig - The Reality of Ultra Processed Food and How to Eat For Better Health

    In this episode I speak to the brilliant nutritionist Dominique Ludwig.

    Dominique is highly qualified and a hugely trusted voice in this field and during the episode we have an in depth chat about how ultra-processed food has become so commonplace and why it is the last thing that we should be eating if we care about our future health.

    Dominique also gives some brilliant advice and tips for the types of food that can really help us in our 40's + and why eating sufficient protein can be an absolute game changer. She also talks about why diets are a no-no and we need to shift our eating habits to set us up for life.

    I loved Dominique's no nonsense advice and extensive knowledge and hope that she inspires you to navigate the at times confusing and emotionally charged world of nutrition.

    Melissa Leong - Beauty, Wellbeing and The Art of Leaving Your Comfort Zone

    My guest today is the utterly brilliant Melissa Leong.

    Melissa is an Australian freelance food writer, food critic, television host and radio broadcaster. She is currently a judge on a series called Dessert Masters and was previously a judge on MasterChef Australia. In 2020 she was named Who Magazine's Sexiest Person of the year. And luckily for us, Melissa is also incredibly eloquent and passionate about beauty, fragrance and wellbeing.

    Our conversation is one of my favourite types in that we cover so much ground and it is all so interesting and enlightening. From the surprising turn of events in Melissa's career journey to how she handles depression and anxiety to the important lesson she learnt about exercise recently and how she takes herseld out of her comfort zone, there is so much to learn from Melissa. 

    We of course chat about our mutual love for beauty and Melissa talks about her focus on glowing, healthy skin, her favourite style of makeup and what beauty means to her now she is in her 40's.

    You'll love getting to know Melissa and if you're anything like me, she'll inspire you in a whole host of ways.

    Denny Daily - This Woman Knows How to Test a Beauty Product to The Nth Degree

    In this episode I get to know Denny Daily who is a Beauty and Grooming Expert at the Good Housekeeping Institute.

    During the episode we explore the many elements involved in testing a product at the Institute and why once a beauty product has been highly rated by them, there is every reason for us to trust that it is worth spending our money on as consumers (something that is incredibly important to me).

    Denny and I also talk about the products that have really stood out to her because they have performed so well across the board.

    Here are some of the things that she loves and recommends:

    Lancome Hypnose Mascara
    Clinique high-fi volumizing Mascara
    Merit beauty Tinted Lip Oil
    Olaplex Dry Shampoo
    Elemis Vitamin c
    Elemis Collagen Cream
    MyVitamins Collagen gummies 
    Quai Body butter
    Proverb Natural Deodorant
    Tropic Morning Mist
