  • OUR SIT DOWN WITH TERESA PALMER

    Once upon a time, before Talbot Avenue was born, Kim and I met as housemates and over a period of a few months we quickly came to realise that we were destined to be in one another’s lives.  We are both the kind of people who like to surround ourselves by dreamers, doers, believers and thinkers.  Many a time we have spent under the moonlight, drinking rose, dissecting life, our purpose, what connects us to this world and others around us.  It has always been important to open up a safe space between us where we can each share all that matters to us, from the mundane to the magical.

  • THE ART OF SNACKING

    There are many opinions when it comes to snacking.  Here at Talbot HQ we refrain from using words like forbidden or can’t.  We recognise that moderation is the key and snacking for us is no exception to this rule.  The kind of snacks we reach for, crave and munch in our every day lives matter.  Healthy living is a lifestyle choice and the art of snacking is very much a part of this process.

  • The Whole Life Challenge THE WHOLE LIFE CHALLENGE

    With The Whole Life Challenge just around the corner, today I reflected back on the trigger that lead me to a healthier and happy lifestyle.  Two years ago my partner and I embarked on The Whole Life Challenge.  At the time I was terribly unfit, highly inactive and ate cheese and white starchy carbs like they were water.  My partner had done the challenge earlier in the year, and he had been encouraging me for a while to get more active and understand more about what I was putting into my body.  So (slightly reluctantly) I agreed to embark on the WLC together with him, more for the fun of challenging myself than anything else.  Having never really stuck to any exercise regime or “diet” before, I didn’t have high expectations to see much change, but hey, I’ve jumped out of a plane and survived, a little lettuce and fresh air won’t kill me?  What started off as a fun challenge, quickly became one of the biggest eye-openers I’ve ever had…

  • HOW MUCH SLEEP DO WE NEED?

    It is 4:48am.  My mind and body are wide awake.  I (KS) have slept at most 4.5 hours.  Whilst this is not a common occurrence,  I know the day ahead will be full of activities, meetings and demands that require a good night’s sleep.  I often wonder how much sleep do we really need? The Talbot team pack a lot into a day and often our fast-paced, busy lifestyles result in us functioning on very little sleep.  Whilst our days are full and we work hard to balance both work and play, we often find that exhaustion and tiredness are something we have gotten used to.

    Trying to understand sleep, the quality of sleep and the power it has on our waking life…

    How much sleep do we really need?

  • RAW FOOD DIET FOR THE WEEK!?

    Here at Talbot HQ we welcome implementing new and innovative ways to live by the look good / feel geed ethos. With the return of a dear friend, who also happens to be a phenomenal chef (#winning), the Talbot chicas have agreed to embark on a raw food diet for the week.

    Why go raw? We are interested in the benefits of this diet change. Welcoming the experience and being open minded to a movement that supports consuming living enzymes (i.e. raw food) which can help conserve the body’s energy, reduce disease-causing stress and support a healthier digestive system.

    Stay tuned…

  • HAPPINESS IN THE FORM OF A MELON

    The Talbot team are not new to the practice of yoga. Having practiced together for many years (lets face it we do everything together) we have come to love and cherish our time on the mat for many delicious reasons. A few days ago we were lucky enough to be invited to the launch of mind and body studio Happy Melon. Offering yoga, pilates, meditation and group fitness we have signed up to a week of TLC, hot tea and what we found to be the best way to start the day. Having practiced yoga with Marsha in the past we were beyond excited to learn that she teaches at the studio. Through play, laughter and letting go, our morning yoga at Happy Melon has left us wanting more.  A little shout out of gratitude for creating a space that focuses on:

    Get the mind right, the body will follow.

  • LOVE THE SKIN YOU’RE IN

    As the temperature drops we seem to notice an increase in bumps, dryness and itchiness on our skin. Wanting to delve a little more than ‘skin deep’ 😉 we stumbled on this post from @organic_olivia. We referenced their chart to help us (and you) understand deficiencies and what we can do to give a little extra lovin’ to the skin we are in!
