S-Series Vitamix Personal Blender

Vitamix has combined its high-performance engineering with the convenience of a personal blender. Whether you’re on the go or enjoying meals at home, the S30 makes it easy to create single and double servings of your favourite recipes while fitting easily on your countertop. Instead of plastic components that wear quickly, Vitamix uses a metal drive system to connect the container to the motor base—allowing better blends and longer lifespan. $845 to $899 from www.vitamix.com.au or www.vitamix.co.nz

Living Libations Maidenfern Blushing Balm

Maiden Fern Blushing Balm has quickly become my beauty bag—and handbag—staple. The versatile tint (I use it for cheeks and lips) is enriched with extractions of juicy roots, replenishing seabuckthorn berries, and special essential oils to create a warm, rosy hue that’s gorgeous on any skin tone. Dab onto cheekbones, or add a pinch to upper and lower lips. This little pot of beauty bliss also smells divine, with a scent of roses, cinnamon, and exotic neroli. Available in 5ml. $28.50 from www.benaturallyou.com

Sugar Venom Natural Mascara

In a world of chemical laden mascaras that lengthen, plump and fan, it can be a little disheartening trying to find a natural equivalent. While some might go on well, they can crumble during wear; while others just don’t add the volume that mascaras are revered for. Sugar Venom has come to the rescue with their natural mascara—albeit for a somewhat controversial preservative, phenoxyethanol. Despite this, the Sugar Venom offering is a great alternative if you want to shy away from the full on toxic lash plumpers. It applies beautifully, wears extremely well and with multiple applications you can achieve a well defined set of lashes. Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Oryza Sativa Wax (Rice Bran Wax), Olea Europea fruit oil (Olive Oil), Vegetable Source Cetyl Alcohol (Coconut), Coernica Cerifera (Carnauba Wax), Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla Wax), Vegetable Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Acacia Gum, Black Iron oxide (CI 77499),  Aminomethyl Popandiol (Ph Adjuster), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative). $34.95 from www.sugarvenom.com.au

The Heal Your Gut Cookbook

The Heal Your Gut Cookbook was created by GAPS Diet experts Hilary Boynton and Mary G. Brackett to help heal the gut and to manage the illnesses that stem from it. Developed by pioneering British MD Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) refers to disorders ADD/ADHD, autism, addictions, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, stemming from or exacerbated by leaky gut and dysbiosis. GAPS also refers to chronic gut-related physical conditions, including celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type one, and Crohn’s disease, as well as asthma, eczema, allergies, thyroid disorders, and more. An evolution of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, the GAPS Diet will appeal to followers of the Paleo Diet, who are still struggling for optimum health, as well as anyone interested in the health benefits of fermentation or the Weston A. Price approach to nutrition. Find out more at www.healyourgutcookbook.com
