The Beach Look from Heaven

Hello lovelies, 

It is Spring in Australia.  It can be tricky to know what to wear, however I found the perfect dress in one of my favourite online stores ROSEGAL  The weather can change from cool to warm in a very short period of time. However, it was not going to stop me from going to the beach. We had a few weeks of rain and as soon as the weather improved a little I visited Kingscliff Beach in New South Wales. Although it is a different state, it is only about 45 min from the Gold Coast in Queensland (where I live). As soon as I got there, I felt the light wind and could not resist to open my arms and let the sensation of pure freedom get through me. The dress was perfect to make me feel just like that - free like the wind and wild like the waves. The light material of chiffon with the lace flare sleeves are so beautiful and delicate. The design is feminine and elegant, the flowy sleeves make them a statement in their own right. The colour is so beautiful, it matched so well the blue of the ocean while contrasting with the fine white sand of Kingscliff Beach. This dress is really perfect for any occasion, be a stroll on the beach or wear heels and you are perfectly dressed to a party in the evening. Love the versatility of it. BUY IT NOW and Get 12%  OFF use code RGNancy.

While in Kingscliff I could not resist the temptation and danced away. Many of you know that my passion for dance remains in me. I danced for over 20 years, I tried several dance styles and danced for fun. My passion turned into a career for a while and I made my dream into a reality. It was not easy, I persisted for so long until I made the stage my second home. A place where I felt the most comfortable as a person.

I would like to encourage you all to follow your dreams, never ever give up, no matter what. It is important to be persistent, to keep going. Be a GOAL digger. I might be dressed like an angel from a perfect dream, but I am a nightmare when I want something. So, go for it! Don't let anyone be in your way. Many will try to make you live a life that suits them but it does not suit you. If you give up in your dreams you lose yourself. So do not let that happen.

My second outfit here was a gorgeous BRIEF SPAGHETTI STRAP STRIPE DESIGN ONE PIECE SWIMSUIT I am seriously in love with this swimsuit the design, the details, the colour, all so perfect. It is a timeless beachwear. This swimsuit is absolute perfect for the beach, yacht or resorts. You choose, it is a must have piece that should be included in your suitcase for your next holiday. Get 12% off your next purchase USE CODE RGNancy.

Kingscliff Beach is in the Tweed Shire. If you follow my INSTAGRAM you would have noticed that I have been exploring the Tweed area in New South Wales. This beach is a popular location among surfers and tourists.

The vegetation is amazing. It welcomes you as you arrive here. 

While in the Tweed Coast make sure to stop and admire the native plants. 

Thank you for visiting. I hope your week is full of blessings! 

Don't forget to always make the most of everyday!

Yoga, Diet and Fashion: Three Key Elements to Motivation

Alala Active Wear

Yoga, Diet & Fashion: Three Key Elements to My Motivation

Guest blogger: photosbycris

It is clear to us all that exercise is an important and fundamental part of our busy everyday lives.

More and more, we are bombarded with diets and how to get in shape without exercise. Yes, it is right, I am a living proof that it is possible to lose weight without exercise, however, is it beneficial? The short answer is no. Recently lost 15 kilos, yes I lost weight rapidly due to personal matters in my life. At first, I thought great, now all I have to do is keep it off. So, I cut sugar from my diet, it was the best thing I could’ve done. I started eating a clean healthy diet, it was also another amazing step in the direction of keeping my weight low.

After a while though, I noticed that my muscles were had begun to diminish. I was slim but not toned. I was the weight I wanted to be, but I was unfit. I decided to slowly implement exercise into my daily routine. I started with Yoga! Why Yoga? Because it was a gentle process to begin body moving again in a conscious way without an overdose of cardio that I knew I would not respond well to.

I knew I needed to look after my body as well as my mind, and yoga was the perfect fit to get me back on track of a daily exercise routine. I managed to practice from the comfort of my home because of my busy schedule. I also took advantage to practice on the beach, while breathing fresh air and enjoying outdoors.

It’s worth noting that I had a strong practice of yoga in the past for many years, this helps me now as I try to follow classes to make sure I do it safely. If you are unfamiliar with yoga it’s a good idea to begin in a class environment where you can benefit from the guidance, support, and adjustments of your yoga instructor. Yoga was not only a great exercise to get me moving again, but it was also playing an important role in shaping my lifestyle to a healthier and a happier one.

To keep myself motivated and encouraged, I decided to exercise every day and I noticed that wearing the right clothes was a form of motivation. When you feel good on the inside you start to care more about how you look on the outside. It felt good to invest in activewear that was easy to move in but also lifted my spirits.

Have you ever noticed that what we wear is usually a mirror of how we feel? I realised that wearing a super cool, beautiful activewear outfits encouraged me to exercise. Soon, it became my favourite clothes to wear, not only for fitness but also as a casual look. Believe me, it makes a huge difference to how I feel.

I look at it as an investment in myself! An investment in my wellbeing and it motivates me to get out there and wear it!

When you buy something you love with a purpose the purpose becomes action. It will keep you moving, you invested in yourself, you invested in your health so it is more likely that you will wear it for a reason.

Subscribe to YogaClub and receive a monthly box packed with the latest designs from the best Active Wear Labels!

Activewear is no longer for the gym only. It is comfortable, casual, fashionable style in its own right. It is for the health conscious people who enjoy living a healthy lifestyle with style.

At this point in my life I I really wanted to find healthy products to keep me feeling great and gave me energy.

My search for the right supplements began and I found that the majority of protein shakes and energy bars were not always the best option, because some are packed with protein but are also packed with sugar and carbs. We all know that to look our best on the outside we must take care of how we feel inside.

I recently discovered Keto Diet supplements; A Doctor-Approved Clean Nutrition that has a selection of items that are low in carbs. All products are made in the USA. They are gluten free, soy free, lactose and dairy free. NON-GMO and it is paleo friendly.

What is a Ketogenic diet? It is a diet that lowers carbohydrates and blood glucose, the stored fat is broken down by the Enzyme Lipase, the fats are metabolised in the liver to ketones which will increase your energy levels and it is fuel for brain and muscle. Learn More about these amazing products.

My journey toward a healthy and well balance lifestyle has just begun and I want to encourage you to leave your comments below and let me know what is your favourite exercise and how do you keep yourself motivated when it comes to health, exercise and wellbeing.

Wishing you all an amazing day xoxo
