When I first met Julie Stevanja a few years ago, I was struck by her calm nature and her incredible intelligence. This softly spoken girlboss has seen the rise of activewear through her shopping website Stylerunner. She started the business with a want and need to have fashionable gym clothes, and has not looked back since.
As much as I love a long break over summer, there is something really great about getting back into the routine of life! I’m a pretty organised person and I love a schedule, so getting the kids back to school and myself back to work has been a welcome change to endless days of doing, well, not a lot really!
As we all know as parents, packing the school lunch box can be one that requires time and thought if we want our kids to eat a balanced healthy meal. I like to keep life simple so when something like H2Coco comes along in a kids lunch box size – I’m in! My kids love the different flavours and they see it as a treat – which is a win win for us as it’s a healthy, hydrating, gluten, dairy free drink, free of preservatives or artificial nasties.
It’s convenient to pick up from your local supermarket and it’s peace of mind knowing you are sending your kids back to school with a healthy alternative.
I hope your back to school routines are serving you well so far and that you give H2Coco a try for kids too!
Rachael Finch is former Miss Universe Australia, fashion model, mother, wife, entrepreneur and all round loveliness.
Rachael truly practices what she preaches. I have know her for a few years now and have loved watching her career and personal life blossom into what it is now. Her wisdom, insight and down to earth passion for a healthy whole life inspired me so much during our chat – she has that effect!
Did anybody else struggle getting through their summer reading list?
I’m trying something a little bit new and a lot out of my comfort zone for me –
This week I was lucky enough to attend music’s night of nights in Australia, the ARIA awards. My handsome date was up for a nomination and performed with the legendary Daryl Braithwaite and the beautiful Vera Blue, Daryl’s iconic song ‘The Horses.’
Samantha Wills is one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting. The first time I met her I was asked to style her for the cover of The Collective magazine. I was already a wreck with nerves come the day of shooting, but Samantha made the day so easy with her down to earth nature and cool, casual approach. Not to mention, the girl looks good in ANYTHING!
Lorna Jane Clarkson is a household name. An icon. An empire. Lorna’s curiosity to find the perfect activewear, birthed the brand into what it is today.
I feel like lunchbox packing should be added to every parents resume. It takes some serious skill to get that box to come home empty every. single. day. Believe me, I am not a master of the lunchbox quite yet, I’m early days. Hudson has only started Kindy this year, so I have years of refining ahead of me. Like, years.
