I’m giving away my #Simplicious cover outfit

Posted on December 8th, 2015

Well, that’s slightly clickbait-y. But I am giving away a bunch of the sports bras and pyramid necklaces that I wear on the the cover of I Quit Sugar: Simplicious….and that I wear pretty much most days…because that’s the way I roll.

To tie it all in to my anti-wastage mission, I’m going to share the below with folk keen to give some of my food waste tricks a crack.

20 x $50 vouchers from Vie Active (my leopard print sports bra)

5 x pyramid necklaces from Jewels by Jacqueline (my triangle necklace)

The Simplicious Challenge:

Make one simple change in the name of sustainability. This could look like:

  • washing out and re-using your ziplock bags
  • saying no to bottled water
  • taking your own reusable bag to the shops and ditching the plastic
  • cooking all your leftover food in a fridge clean-out mission
  • riding your bike to work instead of driving
  • buying local rather than imported produce.

You get the gist. Just do something and share it on Instagram and preferably with your mates and family. My simple aim is to get as many people as possible on this planet pitching in!

  • Do it for a week (December 9 – 16). Read more

The Cocoon jumper…which you can win ‘n’ knit, below

As a novice, I figured a “everything included” kit was the way to go. I scoured for a good one and found Wool and the Gang, a sustainable and ethical company with cool designs. No twin sets. No matinee jackets. This is the bit I like: the company supports small Peruvian villages (you can opt to have someone in Peru make it for you at a very reasonable rate if you don’t want to knit the thing yourself), plus the company is committed to reducing and recycling in a very innovative way – they re-purpose old T-shirt Read more

The IQS 8-Week Program goes global! Plus an international Getaway Giveaway…

Posted on May 20th, 2014

I’m not sure if you know – I Quit Sugar has gawn global. As in, my book is now on sale around the world and the online 8-Week Program can be done wherever you are on the planet. The impact of this, for me, has been huge. I now get feedback from people from cities I have to look up on Google who share their experiences with the Program. I meet people in the street in countries on the other side of the world who approach me to tell me how going sugar-free has affected them and their families. I am always touched and awed by the way messages can cross borders. Mightily humbled!
