For those who struggle with meditation this will help you get started. Meditation is the act of observing your own thoughts and not being critical about what you’re thinking. The best way to describe meditation is to pretend your thoughts are clouds in the sky and you are laying in a field watching the clouds go by. You aren’t there to follow the clouds you are just there to observe them as they past.
You are not there to follow one constant thought you are only there to observe. The good thing about guided meditation is that it talks your through the whole entire process. It helps you focus on the present and calm your mind with a bit more help. A guided mediation talks you through everything which helps you focus on the present more and not let your mind focus so intensely on one thought.
To find good guided meditations just check them out on youtube and see what one works best for you. I also recommend downloading an app that will help as well. Once or twice a day anywhere from 5- 20 minutes is enough for you to relax and let your mind settle down. Some of my favourite guided meditation apps are Sleep Easily, Smiling Mind, Take a Break and Headspace.
Try guided meditations and see how you go!

Calling all ladies of Melbourne! This hidden gem just opened and it is sure to make your nails go crazy. Miss Nail Bar is located inside the South Melbourne Market and it is my absolute new favourite spot. With 450 + colours to choose from your nails will be summer ready in no time. Some nail salons can make you spend half your day their but at Miss Nail Bar they will have you in and out in half the time. The staff are all funny, talkative and make you feel welcome. The manicure I got was only $22 and it included a vanilla and coconut scrub. Once your arms were all soft you got to soak your hands in either a rose or lavender water that smelt delicious and felt luxurious. Not only do they do a great job you also get a nice massage included, who could say no to that? Open on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 8am-4pm and on Fridays from 8am-5pm making a stop by here is the perfect way to spend your weekend and have some me time. If you need some relaxation then stop by “Miss Nail Bar” in the South Melbourne Market.

If you haven’t heard, its all about Frank these days… Everyone’s talking about it, and the gossip is absolutely true. Frank coffee scrub is my guilty little secret to keeping my skin smooth and silky. Frank is made in Melbourne, Australia and the most exciting part about that for me is that since I’m living here delivery takes only a day which means I will be in the shower with the scrub on my body in no time. Frank ships to all over the world and believe me when I say, you are going to want to get some. Frank packs a whole lot of nutrients into their scrubs such as sweet almond, orange, coconut, grapeseed and cacao. Frank targets problem areas and issues such as cellulite, stretch marks and acne. Get naked, get dirty, get rough, get clean, it is now time for YOU to try Frank coffee scrub!

This matte pink coral color has everything a girl would ever need when it comes to looking good. With the right amount of brightness and a creamy candy look, this nail polish can stand alone as an accessory. No need to have a pop of brightness on your shoes or a bracelet with this polish, it means business. Get your nails done with Flip Flop Fantasy then go get some sun and you will not regret your decision. Not only will you have a hard time keeping your eyes off it, you will also have everybody in sight asking what color you’re wearing.
