Beautiful You Event Melbourne

Saturday, 13 September 2014

Today I was given a whole new definition of beauty and a whole new light on the whole topic. You don't need to be super model pretty to be beautiful or super duper skinning to be beautiful, beauty comes from within and then when you feel beautiful from within it begins to show on the outside.

None of this would have happened if I had not attended the beautiful you event in Melbourne today at the Melbourne exhibition building in Carlton.  I no longer want fake boobs, a nose job and don't want to be super skinny anymore! I just want to be the best version of me, naturally!

There was not a shortage of exhibitors there to make you feel beautiful either! I had the beautiful ladies at WaxAway fix my brows up, there were plenty of photo ops and learning session with the best in the business not to mention celebrities!

You can catch this show tomorrow and I couldn't recommend it enough, you even get given a BEAUTIFUL goodie bag upon arrival. 

I was given the amazing opportunity to have my picture taken with some of the event ambassadors like:

Jules Sebastian

Carmelo Pizzino

Kate Johnson

And it wasn't because I was there as a blogger either, these guys were walking  around with everybody and were more then happy to stop for a chat and a snap!

I was saying to the beautiful Jane today, that I went to the GO festival a little while back and it had me questioning this one as there wasn't much on there. So for me I has no idea what I was up for walking through the very large, very old double doors at the exhibition centre today. To my surprise there was more then I expected and the expo itself was huge :-) they have a 14+ age limit on it as well so you can leave those motherly instincts at home and just take some time for yourself and find your inner beauty.

There were many beauty bars set up where you could have your hair styled, nails fixed, eyebrows threaded, makeup all done up, get your fitness moves on and even practice some of your finest yoga moves.

I really do hope beautiful you returns next year as I really have a new attitude on The meaning of beautiful and how it is portrayed in the public.

Spiral's in my Kitchen with a European Twist- Pasta Recipe

Wednesday, 10 September 2014
Being half European (as I tend to babble on about) I am in a tough spot, I love cooking from scratch but then there are days when I want to be in and out of the kitchen as quick as possible. Luckily for me I have found a brand that can help me out in both areas.
Spiral’s Dip & Toss Pasta Oils are as versatile as they are tasty. 
Available in
Rosemary & Garlic
Sun Dried Tomato & Basil 
Basil & Parmesan
 The Dip & Toss Pasta Oils are made with fresh herbs and spices matched with premium quality cold-pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
I created my Nonna’s pasta dish using products sourced from Spiral, and I must admit the sauce and dish overall did taste better then it ever has- just goes to show the quality of the products makes all the difference.
Nonna’s Pasta Sauce using Arrabbiata Sugo with Spiral’s Brown Rice Penne

1 teaspoon Spiral’s Rosemary and Garlic oil
1 Brown Onion Diced
500g Lean beef Mince
1 teaspoon Vegeta
1 diced carrot
1 Sprig Rosemary
Mixed Italian Herbs
1 jar Arrabbiata Sugo sauce

Firstly you pop the onion and carrot into a frying pan with Spiral’s oil, when it gets super hot and brown them off making sure not to burn them. Then add in the mince and brown off. Once the mince is brown you add in the vegeta, herbs and rosemary. Once this has all cooked through and infused add in the jar of Arrabbiata Sugo Sauce.
Cook for 30mins on low to medium heat. Add parmesan at the end and enjoy.
TIP: With the brown rice penne I would suggest to rinse under hot water once cooked to get the slimy residue off.

I have used the Dip and Toss Pasta oils with garden salads and vinegar to get a real taste of the pure oil with infused flavours. Another great way to enjoy these oils is to drizzle some overtop of your vegetables that are going into the oven for roasting for the extra special taste.

You can stir it through fresh pasta with a dollop of tapenade, or drizzle it over a pizza for that restaurant-quality taste. For something a bit different, mix the Dip & Toss Pasta Oil with vinegar and toss through a green salad, or simply use as a dip with crusty fresh bread and watch as the bowl is wiped clean.
Spiral’s new Dip & Toss Pasta Oils are a terrific complement to their Organic Sugos. As well as a partner to fresh pasta, the Sugos can be served as an accompaniment to meat, poultry or seafood. Add a dash of verjuice to create a broth
I am now covered in the kitchen thanks to Spiral’s Dip & Toss Oils with its Organic Sugos for both entrĂ©e and main, bringing a flourish of flavours that are quality, fresh and versatile – truly pantry staples.
