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.

  • raw vegan brownie DID YOU SAY RAW VEGAN BROWNIE?!?

    Yep we went there…and this is one for the recipe book!  Traditionally, KS and I are more of the umami/savoury kinda ladies – having never really had much of a sweet tooth, even as kids we’ve always avoided the conventional sweet cakes and pastries.  However with the insurgence of healthy raw treats popping up at all our favourite eateries, we’ve dipped our toes into the dessert pool, and I hate to say it….but we’ve converted to the dark cacao side…

    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?

  • Adrenal fatigue, stress, anxiety WHAT THE HELL IS ADRENAL FATIGUE?

    Us Talbot girls pride ourselves on our fast-paced, busy lifestyles.  Sometimes it amazes us how much we can pack into a day, a skill we’ve always found beneficial to juggle our work, our families and friendships.  However this type of lifestyle can definitely take its toll.  AJ started seeing a naturopath last year to start working on holistic measures to improve her overall health and wellbeing, because we all need a little TLC once in a while!  One of the terms which was brought up during her sessions was “Adrenal Fatigue”.  For those of you who are totally unfamiliar with this term…don’t worry, so were we.

    So the question begs…what the hell is adrenal fatigue?
