Well, I never saw this coming.  Isn’t this Universe just the funniest thing?

Six months ago I was hiding wine bottles and binge drinking almost every weekend.

At 39 years of age – and a Health Coach, no less – I should have known better. But drinking doesn’t work like that, does it? It’s a sneaky little monster that creeps up day-by-day until it steals your self-worth and happiness.

Six months ago, on one of ‘those’ mornings filled with sobbing and regret, I decided to conduct a sassy, soulful experiment. An experiment that changed my life.

I cleaned up my act, did a ton of inner work, embraced sobriety, and somehow found the courage to share all the gory details with you:

100 Days Without A Drink

100 Days Without a Drink - Part 2

100 Days Without a Drink - Part 3


And because this Universe of ours has a wicked sense of humour, it double-dared me when a journalist asked me to share my story on the largest mainstream media platform in the country.

I’m still standing, baby. And best of all, my darkest hours have inspired a soulful new direction. I’m so excited to announce that I’m now hard at work creating the membership site and resource I wish I had during the first 30 days.

For all my beauties out there who might be struggling with the same battles and demons, this is for you, angel. You are loved, and you are not alone.
::  Interviews + inspiration from kick-ass babes who wouldn’t be where they are now if they hadn’t ditched the drink.

::  Elixirs + desserts to tease your tastebuds and keep your mouth deliciously occupied.

::  Stories + journals for deep reflection and getting your head straight.

    This sounds amazing Bex. Reading this as I am sitting here, still nursing a hangover at 8pm from the night before. I don’t often drink much at all anymore, but those odd occasions when I do every few months for big events (last night was my hens night) has me feeling so crappy.

    I feel tired, unorganised (no clean clothes for the week as I’ve been in bed all day and no food cos I haven’t been grocery shopping), my stomach is making all kinds of strange sounds and I have also had a few emotional outbursts today which aren’t like me at all. This resource will be great. Can’t wait to see it.

      So many emails similar to your message have been pouring in about the new site, and I can’t wait to share it with you. Here’s to a sexy revolution! xx

      Thank you so much, Renee! And they sure can. I never thought I’d be able to stop drinking completely, but it just goes to show that we all have more inner strength than we imagine. xx
