I’ll be honest, I’ve never owned a blender. Come to think of it, I don’t think my mum ever owned one either. I’m not sure why. I used to love drinking banana smoothies as a kid, but we would have to mash up the banana with a fork before putting it into the milkshake maker and whiz it up with milk.

I attended a conference a month or so ago and heard Kemi speak about “adding more raw” food into your diet. (I might do a separate post on Kemi later.) I’ve always been a pretty healthy eater, but I thought I’d start making green smoothies.

I have a hand held stick blender which I used but I decided to get a proper blender. I bought a Vitamix because a) they are amazing, b) it will last forever, and c) it came with a free knife, chopping board and a cool cooler bag with wheels.

I’ve been making green smoothies, but this morning I made this delicious one…



•  banana
•  kiwi fruit
•  berries
•  a small stick of celery
•  almond milk
•  biodynamic yoghurt
•  agave
•  sunflower kernels
•  walnuts
•  chia

Throw everything into the Vitamix and whizzzzzzz!

One year ago I was reading the Etsy blog, and I thought to myself “hey, I want to be a featured shop!”
Etsy feature

I wasn’t exactly sure how to go about it. I worked really hard at making my Etsy shop perfect. The photos were clean, colourful and the styling cohesive. I constantly updated and worked on my product descriptions.

Over the next few months some of my products appeared in the newsletters and on the homepage. Then, I was approached about including my Fresh Herbs bag in the Australian summer look book, and later I was a featured designer in the autumn look book.

Then finally it happened, I was asked to be on the Etsy blog! I was so excited and proud. It took a year, and I still can’t believe I made it happen but the sense of achievement I got was the best feeling. You can read the interview on the blog here.
