Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing Teresa Cutter of The Healthy Chef; a leading authority on healthy cooking in Australia. She is on the Women’s Fitness Magazine expert panel, is a qualified chef, nutritionist and accredited fitness trainer.
Teresa is also the Founder and CEO of The Healthy Chef, a company creating delicious, functional foods for optimum health and wellbeing. She has just released some great new products in the functional whole food range; Organic Pea Protein & Organic Superfood. The last few weeks have seen her flat-out touring but Teresa took some time out to answer my questions about her Polish influences, Muay That training, figure competitions, her book The 80/20 Diet, and how she manages the pursuit of multiple passions!

The last couple of weeks have been one hell of a crazy ride, bookended by trips to Melbourne and completely turned upside-down due to events both in my control and out of it. They were both good and bad but it all resulted in me landing on my feet, facing in an unexpected direction.

This week was Natural Beauty Week and I’ve been itching to share my interview with the amazing Mardi from Human Tested Skin & Tattoo Care. She’s such an inspirational woman and a total rock star of natural beauty! I was blessed with being involved in the HT catalogue photo shoot and attending the amazing launch party just a couple of weeks ago. It was a huge event with the Razor Dolls stylists creating insane hair-dos, punk bands, pole dancers and circus acts, amazing Vegan catering from The Organic Kitchen Caterers and of course a wild Jelly Wrestling competition.
I managed to steal some of Mardi’s time in between juggling her rapidly emerging business, looking after her gorgeous son Sebastian and all of her other amazing creative endeavours to find out what rocks her world!

I still can’t get over the amazing weather in Brisbane. For a lizard like myself who was born on the West Coast, the warmer climate and sunny days suit me much better than the cold Melbourne weather. I love being near the water and even though the actual beach is an hour away we’re lucky enough to have a pool in our complex. The first things I packed to move interstate were my bathers because lets face it, I wasn’t using them much down south!
Warmer weather is looming across the rest of the country, so there is all the more reason to seek out new swimwear options! The most important factor in choosing swimwear is how you feel wearing it. It’s no good buying a gorgeous, expensive bikini if you end up feel like you’re having other than the greatest day ever wearing it out in public. Our bodies are all shapes and sizes and Australian beaches ares some of the most beautiful in the world; they are not a place to hide your splendour but to frolic in the surf, marvel at our gorgeous coastlines and soak up the warmth of the sun—with a high SPF sunscreen and proper UV protection of course!
There are heaps of different options for different body types, with mix-and-match styles that make it super easy to find a combination that will flatter your figure. Instead of worrying about how you feel, a great swimsuit should allow you to focus on other things like the beautiful surroundings, enjoying the time with your friends, or even just taking time out for yourself.

There’s nothing like boobs to cheer you up, whether you’re a dude or a lady. When I sat down to write this post I was feeling decidedly down in the dumps and even trying to think about all the things I’m grateful for didn’t cheer me up enough to write. I figured I was hungry, so I ate. That didn’t work. I figured I was tired, so I napped. That helped a little, but then I was running late to see two of my favourite ladies perform so I had to hustle out the door to Burlesque Bar.
Below you will see Elle Diablo in action as well as a gorgeous promotional image of Tiki Amazon in her Bearded Lady guise. I have a tattoo of Elle—or her everyday alter-ego Amanda—that I was inspired to get after Tiki—otherwise known as Dr Amy—and I had werked our arses off under her watchful eye for a group pole dancing performance now years ago. It was that performance that really solidified my commitment to pole as a sport and art form, even though the road has been rocky and the two of them rising in the fame stakes makes me proud as punch.
