Making Me Happy


Today’s Making Me Happy is a little late because it’s all systems go at In Spaces Between HQ as I prepare for a quick jaunt to Melbourne to speak at the Soulpreneurs event tomorrow, and next week, our (belated) honeymoon to Italy where we’ll spend ONE WHOLE MONTH.

Whoa. Excitement doesn’t even cut it. This overseas trip has been a long time coming and I’m so, so ready to let the ideas that have been percolating in my mind take shape – pen to paper – but more importantly, to switch off, play with my man, have fun, feast my eyes on new sights and BE. To give myself permission to step out of Rach the Coach, Blogger, Friend, Email Writer, and be Rach the Free-Spirited, Joy-Loving, Big Dreamer That Craves Adventure. 

It’s time.

I’ve had a few chats with friends and clients lately around the idea of fun and have been reminded that life can get all too serious if we don’t actively carve out time for play and downtime, so before we launch into this week’s love list, I want to pose this question to you:

How do you have fun? (and are you having enough of it?) Share away in the comments, sweet pea, and feel free to leave your declaration to have more fun if you When it’s declared, it happens. Simplest formula for success out.


Sunday Hangs







I woke up on Sunday with a craving to “go bush,” so my handsome man and I jumped in the car, grabbed ourselves the best freaking vegan pizza in the world from Mandala (check it out on my Instagram if you want to drool) and… found a lemon tree.

I know, I know. Wild. Livin’ on the edge over here folks! Somebody stop us.

Ahh! Soulpreneurs. WHAT A NIGHT.

Last Thursday in Brisbane, alongside 4 women I adore, I took the stage to talk authenticity and abundance in business, blogging, and y’know, life. It was EPIC.

How it went

We were blessed with an audience of curious and wonderful women (and a few men) who asked awesome questions, scribbled notes and were highly engaged, making it a true “workshop” style format, and a journaling exercise punctuated the end of the night so that everyone walked away with a “next right action” to take them ever-closer to their big dream.

How it felt

Exhilarating. Divine. Addictive! Seriously loved it.

I was super calm all day leading in – appreciated, body, thank you – and while my heart let me know I was pole-vaulting out of my comfort zone as we kicked off the night, those feelings very quickly made way for a sense of connection with the audience and the message. When you’re speaking on stage, it’s SO not about you… and I truly felt that. It’s about the audience. Always.

I adored

Meeting some of the gorgeous souls that read this blog in the flesh, and being able to wrap them up in a big hug.

Hearing women in the front row say YES! and knowing that in that moment, something had shifted. Life would be different. Brighter. Dreams: bigger.

Listening to the stories and wisdom pour out of the friends I shared the stage with.

Seeing Yvette’s beaming face all night – this woman has created something truly beautiful and powerful with Earth Events, and it’s a true joy to witness her (rapid) evolution with this biz. Sky’s the limit!

I’m excited for

Tomorrow night. Soulpreneurs Melbourne. BRING IT!

Gratitude Wall



We’ll call it “Post It Art”… and one day, it will be a Post It HEART.

I wanted to create something at home that reminded me of all the beautiful blessings in my life and my husband’s life, because as I’m sure you’re well aware, bringing our attention to what we’re grateful for attracts more of it into our lives. Gratitude is a magnet. It keeps us humming along at the kind of high vibin’, electric frequency that breeds more of the good stuff, and I plan on layering this wall with as many notes of appreciation as I can.


And now to you! What’s lighting your life right now? Drop some love (like it’s hot) in the comments. 

Making Me Happy

This past week has been a bit of a mixed bag – from spending a day in hospital after my husband had a collision with the nose of his surfboard and required plastic surgery to stitch his lip back together again (I’ll spare you the photos) to high energy mornings like this morning, where a speedy run in the dark has left me bouncy and chock-full of endorphins.

Such is life.

There are slow days, low days, days that speed by so quickly you wonder if they even happened. Days where you feel like someone has cranked the dial up to a billion decibels, where you’re unstoppable, on point, sofreakingalive. And that’s A-OK, beautiful. However you feel today, tomorrow will be different. 

I’ve been practicing the fine art of viewing All of the Days through a lens of non-judgement lately, and instead looking at the occasional slower-lower day as “a bad day,” I’ve been embracing them as an opportunity to check in and re-centre.

When something pops up for me – I’ll use a recent example, which has been feeling cabin fever-ish from sitting inside our small apartment on the computer far too much – I’ve been asking:

What can I learn? That I’m fuelled by social interaction and need lots of variety in my working week. Also: fun! Ushering more of that back in, pronto!

When am I most ‘me?’ When my life contains a healthy balance of in-person, dynamic conversation and meditative, introspective time. Ahh. There you go. 

What conditions do I crave in my life that aren’t currently being satisfied? A bigger house with a sweet office, yeah, but also, two days a week out from behind the screen and in communion with creative goddesses/change-makers (I’m thinking workshops, women’s circles, power meetings, the whole she-bang!) 

It’s about realising what works best for YOU, in any given situation in your life, then asking questions, correcting course, and moving on.

Why don’t you give it a go? Apply those q’s to a situation that feels inflamed in your life and circle back to tell me how you went!





Tomorrow night. Five women rocking the stage (did you hear my girl Jess Ainscough will be joining us for part of the event?) Authenticity. Abundance. Soulful business. Making a living doing the work you’re called to do. OMG, I.CANT.WAIT.

Brisbane is almost sold out (in fact, it may actually be sold out now), but if you’re Melbourne-based, don’t miss the event next Thursday 16 May. These are the kind of candid chats that spark something special (you know, like the courage to make that big, gorgeous dream a reality), so if you’re ready to leap… join us. 



Kinesiology still blows me away. I can walk in to a session thinking we’re going to have a nice chat with my body about energy levels, and walk out having a fear that I’ve been carrying around for 20 years unblocked.

Mind-boggling and wonderous. Obsessed.

Meditation + Mindful in May



I’ve been meditating for years, but these days, getting still has definitely become a non-negotiable, daily practice in my life. It’s without doubt the quickest way I know to bust through bullshit, clear scramble-y thoughts and access that innate inner wisdom we all possess.

I tend to mix up my meditations depending on my mood. After a run, I might sit at the beach or at the lookout in the National Park across the road with the sun dancing on my face; other days, I’ll listen to a guided medi like Doreen Virtue’s Chakra Clearing or something from Brain Sync before bed.

To complement that big ol’ love of meditation, I’m so proud to be a part of the Earth Events team for Mindful in May, raising money for Charity Water. I’ll let you read all the details, but if you’re called to, you can ‘sponsor’ me with a donation by selecting my name in the drop down on the donation page.




I’m in simmer-mode with my blog (and business) at the moment before I head off to Italy to let the creative juices really bubble up and the plans take shape. I have to admit that, along the way, the limbo phase has brought with it a hefty dose of impatience (yesssireee!), but I know I’m going to be mentally zinging and ready to ramp things up in a mega way.

The anticipation! The dreams about how I can best serve you and work on YOUR dreams! Ready to catapult.


Honeymoon dreaming (2 weeks and counting) + my incredible husband + The Law of Divine Compensation + The Great Gatsby soundtrack (killer) + new goods from The Village Markets (follow me on Instagram to see what I bought + visual inspo galore).


I’m going to wrap up with some words from the inimitable Rumi, who said: “Gratitude is the wine for the soul. Go on. Get drunk!” 

So… let’s get drunk on love and appreciation in the comments, shall we? Share the things that are making YOU happy, I’m hanging to hear all about them.

Making Me Happy: Earth Events, Blow-My-Mind Crystals + Blue Skies, Baby!

I want to talk a bit about facing fears and leaping – with reckless abandon – out of our comfort zones, because it’s something I’ve done a lot of in the past 5 months and will most definitely be doing when I take the stage in Brisbane and Melbourne for the Earth Events ‘Soulpreneurs’ events.

Taking the leap is something that my clients and I work on continually, and can I just say thrilled-down-deep-in-my-bones I get when I see one of my girls launch a new site out into the world with love, or release their first video blog (even when it freaks the pants off them) or step into the life they’ve been dreaming of… forever. Yep, it’s pretty awesome, this feeling the fear and doing it anyway biz.

In the video above, you’ll get a little taste of what Julie Parker, Susana Frioni, Denise Duffield-Thomas and I will be covering at the Earth Events Soulpreneurs ‘workshops,’ and you’ll hear me mention that courage isn’t the absence of fear, it’s jumping in regardless. I’m hanging to speak more on this and on how friggen empowering and rewarding it is to do the very things that quicken your heartbeat and sweat up your palms. It’s revolutionary (and let it be said – totally addictive).

For me, stepping up and out of my comfort zone right now means embracing opportunities to spread my message in a different way and meet/ hug/ engage with women like you who read this blog, in person. I’m feeling incredibly calm and excited about this public speaking thang, but as I prep for this leap, you can betcha I’ll be ramping up my meditation and journalling and going gangbusters on all the other practices that keep me connected.

I have a request today: let’s keep leaping, together. What do you say?

And because I know you’re going to walk away with SO. MUCH. VALUABLE. INFO. from these two joy-fuelled events, jump on board below so I can give you that big ol’ squeeze I was talking about above:

Beach Days







Autumn weather on the Gold Coast is the kind you want to pop in a jar and spoon-feed to yourself for the rest of time.

On Friday, the sun beckoning, blue skies whispering our names, Tara and I said aurevoir to our home offices and decided to hit the park at Burleigh Point to do some eBook writing, talking, a bit more writing, somuchmoretalking… and THEN! rounded it all out by sipping a gorgeous mojito at Justin Lane (the best mojito I’ve ever tasted, in fact).

This is the stuff dreams are made of and seriously, entrepreneurship just keeps getting better.

Still pinching. Pinch pinch pinch.



New Treasures



It’s been far too long between visits to The Village Markets so I got my booty out the door early Sunday morning and thank god I did, because I scored some beautiful little goodies!

Dreamcatcher and Afghan hanging (for good luck) from Dos Ombre.

Chakra balancing crystal bracelet from Violet Gray Design.


Adore supporting (supremely cool) local businesses/ people. There’s a real groundswell going on on the Gold Coast at the moment, and it’s so inspiring to watch.

Holy Blow-My-Mind Crystals



That fluorite. No words.


Let’s hear it honey, what’s on your love list this week? Unleash in the comments!

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”  ~ Rumi

Making Me Happy


Good morning from the glorious Gold Coast!

Look at Mother Nature showing off today. Autumn seriously rules and I’m full o’ beans this morning so let’s leap – with vigour and verve – into this week’s round-up…

Earth Events



Hugely excited to announce that I’ll be part of the Soulpreneurs event being run by Earth Events in Brisbane on 9 May.

It will be my first speaking gig (!!) and I’m BEYOND stoked to be appearing beside these gorgeous women: Julie Parker, Denise Duffield-Thomas and Susana Frioni. Talk about a power panel!

We’ll be talking about authenticity and abundance in business and life – tying in blogging and building a biz online, of course – and there will be a big Q & A component as we know there will be lots of juicy q’s around living your purpose, following your heart into a business that truly lights you up and everything in between.

The tickets are selling super fast (highly recommend getting in today if you’re keen) and you can get your hands on one right here. Would love to see you there, gorgeous.




Late last year, I was running 8 – 12 kms on average about three times a week but this year, with my training buddy pregnant, I’ve been doing shorter (faster) runs without any real consistency to my training.

I’ve only run two 10km runs since January, so my head nearly fell off (along with my toes, haha) when I ran my fastest ever 10km run yesterday morning, completely randomly.

I said last week on Twitter I’d like to get under 50 minutes for a 10ker, and I did it in 48:19mins. YIPPEEEE!

Moral of the story: run less, go better?

Real moral of the story: shorter, (significantly) faster runs (particularly if you run with a husband who likes to sprint the whole way) DO help. Who woulda known?

Universal Support



One of my favourite things to do, once I’ve set a clear intention for something I want to bring to fruition, is to hand it over and ask for support from the Universe/ Spirit/ Guides – simply by saying “I’m ready to receive support for this. Lead the way.”

By practicing this on the regular, I’ve been having some crazy incidences of ‘guidance’ and receiving just the right messages at the right time. Loads of clarity. A thick ‘n’ fast ‘n’ steady stream of reinforcement. I feel open, full of love and incredibly grateful. YEEHAH.

(ps: I learnt about orbs in photos from the gorgeous Amy, and check out the photo I took at the beach this morning).

My Girls



Mind-boggling fact: I’ve worked with over 50 women since starting my business 4 months ago! Is that INSANE or what? Far out. Refer to the note above. Thank you, thank you, thank you Universe.

Because Skype connections can’t be trusted in hotels, I’ve decided to take a month off coaching while we’re honeymooning in Italy/ Switzerland from mid-May to mid-June, so if you’ve been thinking you’d like to team up with me (I’d be so honoured) before I go away, please drop me a line on rachel (at) inspacesbetween (dot) com and I’ll shoot through details on my packages, pronto.


Here’s what two of my girls had to say about our time together:

“Before I started working with Rach, I was so lost and terrified. I had ZERO clarity and I didn’t know what how on Earth I was going to express my unique voice. I was SO stuck and didn’t own my FUN energy and intuitive gifts. I had a handful of coaching clients, but struggling in this identity crisis! I was on my knees begging for help – and Rach literally saved me.

One of her (many) gifts is bringing out the BEST within you. She relentlessly cheered me on and empowers me to step up my game. She made owning my unique, fun, playful energy so easy and simple. Once I truly owned my voice, well … let’s say the quantum leaps began.

The results speak for themselves! I have experienced wonderful growthsm both in my personal life and intuitive coaching biz. Today, I am living my dream life and biz! I work with amazing clients who ADORE me for ME, and I have so many exciting opportunities lined up in the future. My coaching schedule is booked out WEEKS in advance! I am so fulfilled and aligned with my life purpose and mission.

Working with Rach is an immense joy, something I look forward to SO much! We SMASH my goals and celebrate huge wins (and do celebratory dances and fist-pumps) ALL THE TIME. The best type of FUN!

After a month of coaching with Rach, my Facebook fans have grown by 1,000, my mailing list increased in size by 300. Another one of her (many) gifts is in creative strategising! One of her beautiful ideas generated me $700 of passive income – in under 48 hours.  I have also tripled my income – YES, all within ONE MONTH of working together!

I highly recommend Rach’s services to every gorgeous soul in the world who’s passionate about blogging and spreading your message. It’s really no brainer that her schedule is booked out months in advance – she is worth her weight in GOLD. There are no limits, and the possibilities are endless with Rach as your coach.”



“Walking in to my first session with Rach, I had no idea what to expect. Never having had any sort of life coaching before, I wondered if I’d see any tangible results, or if I’d come away thinking, “yeah, but what next?”

I needn’t have worried. As a long time follower of In Spaces Between, my goal in working with Rach was to sit down with someone I knew would inspire, motivate and just generally “get” where I wanted and needed to go, providing me with honest, soulful guidance and a few ridiculously well structured spreadsheets to propel me on my way!

I discovered one of the best things about a life coaching session with Rach is that it’s impossible not to come away feeling like you could take on the world. Her enthusiasm is infectious, and her passion for seeing big changes in the lives of her clients is one of the reasons she’s so good at what she does.

My time with Rach has left me saying, “I can do this!” and honestly believing it’s true.”


Did anyone say “dream job?”

I’d love to work with you if you have the sneaking suspicion there’s more out there for you, too.


Gwinganna Seminar



Last night I trekked up to Brisbane to attend one of Gwinganna’s lifestyle seminars. The event was centred around movement and the ways in which us modern folk tend to do our hour of exercise (if that), and then sit on our butts all day long – and the detrimental effect doing so has on our bodies physiologically and from a longevity perspective.

One of the presenters, Karl, got us all out of our seats doing Asian Squats, which are deep squats that stretch out all the muscles in the legs and back, and we heard some fascinating research done around incidental exercise and how important it is to move frequently.

Here’s to squatting up a storm between clients today!

Extra sweetness:

Deep and utterly fulfilling chats + dinner meet ups at Mandala with our B-School babes (no photo evidence, unfortunately) + one month holiday countdown + eBook writing (watch this space) + when my husband wakes me up by whispering “You’re the love of my life”… and I melt + seeing how in love my friends and their gentlemen are (this fills my heart SO DAMN MUCH) + journalling.


Share your stand-out moments – big, small, wonderous – in the comments below!

Making Me Happy



You do, beautiful. This blog, this vibrant, rollicking community, would be nothing without YOU in it so I’m kicking off today’s gratitude list by acknowledging your presence in my world. I’m a lucky girl. THANK YOU – immensely.

I’ve wrapped up the magic of the past two weeks below and there’s plenty to feast on, but before we dive in, I want to share something I heard this morning on my walk while I was listening to the audio version of Michael Singer’s magnificent book The Untethered Soul.

The topic was ‘inner energy.’ Michael asserts that we go about our lives thinking, feeling and acting without paying much attention to where all that actually comes from, but in reality, every movement we make and every thought we have is an expenditure of energy. Recalling thoughts, generating emotions, controlling emotions, disciplining the powerful drives we have within all require us to expend a tremendous amount of energy every day.

So where DOES the energy to do what we do come from? Why is it there sometimes when life feels easy and joyful and we feel like we can take on the world, while others we’re left emotionally and mentally drained?

Heads up: it doesn’t come from calories from food.

It doesn’t come from external forces.

Where it does come is an unlimited source we can draw upon any time. The reason we don’t feel this energy all the time is that we (consciously or unconsciously) block it by closing our hearts and minds, which in turn, closes us off from the source. The energy is still there but it can’t get in.

Shakti, qi, ki, spirit – it goes by many names – but no matter what we brand it, the stunning reminder here is that we all have a wellspring of energy inside us. When we’re open, we feel it – love rushing up into our hearts – and when we’re closed we don’t. The more we learn to stay open, the more energy can flow into us.

Isn’t that so brilliant in its simplicity?

I’m putting it to you, babe: what could you do to open riiiiiight up to that pulsing source energy today?


Here’s what has been energising me lately…

Health + Cooking + Un-Baking





I’ve been spending more time in the kitchen in the past week or so and I’m loving it!

Organic market goodies, quinoa bowls (the secret to this one was roasting the pumpkin for so long it became pumpkin mash – an unintentional, but OHMYGODYES mistake) and this raw frozen banana and cacao cake from Kim Morrison, with a little tweak by me (I added mixed berries to the topping which I think took it to a whole ‘nother level).

I also made the incredible raw choc caramel bites below, and, well… they turned out so much better than expected. I’m a massive caramel fiend and you would never know this isn’t the sugar-laden version. Recipe below!


Raw Choc Caramel Bites


1 cup raw macadamia nuts
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup Medjool dates

Caramel Centre

1 cup Medjool dates
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup water
Pinch of sea salt


¼ cup cacao
½ cup dates
1/4 cup organic shredded coconut
¼ cup water
2 tablespoons coconut oil

To make the base:

1. In a food processor, whiz the macadamia nuts, almonds and dates until combined.

2. Spoon into a square tin and put to the side.

To make the caramel centre:

1. Blend all ingredients in the food processor until smooth, adding water slowly as you go and as needed.

2. Spread on top of the base and freeze for 15 minutes.

To make the topping:

1. Blend all ingredients in the food processor until smooth, adding water slowly as you go and as needed.

2. Spread on top of the caramel layer and freeze for an hour until set.

3. Take out of freezer and cut into small bite-sized pieces. Enjoy!

Sol Cleanse



From Friday to Sunday last week I embarked on 3-day Sol Cleanse juice cleanse… and guess what? It was delicious! I thoroughly enjoyed it. (yep, I did just say ‘cleanse’ ‘delicious’ and ‘enjoyed’).

I’ve done a bunch of cleanses before and the juices on this one tasted the best by a country mile. I love green juices anyway but the green juice on this cleanse actually tasted like a banana smoothie (yum) and the lemon and cayenne pepper was an awesome digestion kickstarter. I can’t fault any of the juices in fact, and normally there’s one or two in the bunch that make you go hrmmmm (or more accurately, ‘ugh’).

While I got all the usual benefits from cleansing my body for a few days – better sleep, weight loss, glowing skin and brighter eyes – the biggest bonus for me was the clarity. At the same time as I was cleansing, I was undertaking a “Power Weekend” where I was churning through a massive stack of work, and not only did I have the energy to do super long days on the computer, but it paved the way for a plethora of creative ideas to bubble up from the recesses of my mind. Win, win, win.

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Miriam, one gorgeous ‘sol’ in the Sol Cleanse duo, and I love the philosophy that sits at the foundation of this business. Highly recommend you check them out. It was about time we got a fab cleanse company on the Gold Coast!

Dos Ombre







If you’ve been following me on Instagram (psst, I love posting bright, happy things over there – come play!) you would have seen me gushing over the ridiculously cool Dos Ombre products I was kindly gifted a few weeks ago. Cue: shrieking. And incredulousness. Talk about quality.

I’ve been waiting for the Dos Ombre superstars to return from a trip to Bali – for my beautiful friend Soph’s wedding – before I posted this because I know their style is going to delight the socks off you too, so now that they’re on home soil let me begin lovingly singing the praises of this brand…

For one: I mentioned quality, but I have to dive deeper on this. You know when you buy something online, particularly something ‘tribal-y’ or ‘Aztec-y’, and you excitedly rip open the package, only to fit that gorgeous flowy blanket you thought you were getting is actually rougher than sandpaper? I’ve been a victim. Oh yes I have. These products are the opposite. You could wrap your naked baby (if you happen to have one on standby) in the In Rainbows Guatamalen blanket. It’s that good.

For two: Two sets of discerning eyes + two buyers with super taste = a range that make sense and is so damn cool it hurts.

For three: The cushions! Sweet mother of god! I’ll probably bankrupt myself buying 53297 more.

For four: (that sounds weird, doesn’t it?) I heart Dos Ombre. Fo’ life.

Follow them on Instagram for visual inspiration a-plenty.

Hunt around in their shop. Casually send the link to your husband/ boyfriend/ girlfriend/ family with a “So, these are nice, don’t you think….?”

Optional: say a silent thank you for these stylish sistas doing the hard work hunting for the best home treasures in the world so we don’t have to!

Sunshine Coast + Speaking (of the public kind)





This news is a couple of weeks old now but it would be remiss of me not to share my experiences at Carren Smith’s transformative public speaking course.

I’m going to summarise for ease, so here goes:

What I Learnt

So, SO much. We were taught everything you need to know to structure an excellent speech, and over the course of the 3-day event, were given instruction on how to pull together each section of a talk (intro, the middle including your compelling story, the call to action) and then given 15 minutes to go away, write that section and come back and present it. Gah! It was big, and you can bet that in 15 minutes you barely have enough time to write the speech let alone learn it, so there was a lot of “winging it” going on in the presentations. Nerve-wracking but incredibly powerful because it taught us how to trust in what flowed out when we were up on our feet.

I also learnt a lot about myself and my need to do things ‘the right way.’ It was uncomfortable at first, but I eventually loved sinking into the shoes of someone who was willing to throw off all the shackles and just freaking go for it.

What I Loved

Carren’s energy and her ability to hold the space and bring out the core of our very beings.

The people I met.

The courage, particularly from those that were sharing very real and very raw stories.

I also loved the NLP ‘anchoring’ exercise we did on the last day where we were told to think of a word that encapsulated how we want to feel and using NLP techniques, locked that baby in so we could call upon the feeling whenever we need. Brilliant.

It was an experience I’ll never forget, that’s for sure!

Afternoon Delights





With the turn of the season, the weather has been back to its usual gloriousness and I’ve been soaking it up whenever I can. Burleigh Heads, my love and I. Fills my cup, every time.


Phew! That’s me sweet pea, and what about you? What’s been going down in your neck of the woods? Let’s get a convo going below.

Making Me Happy: B-School Babes, Date Day + Gwinganna!

Is anyone else experiencing the effects of Mercury Retrograde?

On the technology front I certainly have been for the past two weeks and I actually “lost” this post after updating a link yesterday, so here it is again – with added positive juju and some questions for you to answer in the comments. Everything happens for a reason (right?), and as it turns out, the beautiful reason here was that it gave me the opportunity to load up on mo’ love. A planetary blessing in disguise!

The past week has been.. well… epic.

I’m finally getting that when I approach life from a place of ‘slow, deliberate action,’ the Universe steps in to support me. Old habits (and when I say habits, I mean pushing through, taking on way too much, sacrificing to just “get it done”) are being released and I’ve felt more grounded and ‘steady’ than ever before. I had my last kinesiology session* on Monday and Anita (kinesiologist extraordinaire) said she was blown away by the change in my energy from November, when I walked through her door frazzled and over it, to the present where my blocked chakras/ meridians have been tenderly aligned and my body responds easily to the “goals” we set. I’m really feeling that too and have been saying ‘thank you’ – out loud when I’m at home alone, and scribbled in my Moleskine – a lot. 

I also know that there’s still too much incoming work for this one-woman band, and I’m working on ways to reduce that. The daily life of a blogger/ entrepreneur is prone to changing on a whim, I’m getting very clear on how to structure my time and how much extra padding I need to ensure that a change of plans one day doesn’t blow out the rest of the week’s work. It’s all part of the process!

* I still need to write a separate post on my experiences with kinesiology. It’s on the list. 

On to the things that have brought joy to my life over the past week. I’m feeling enormously grateful for…

Date Day with the Husbo














On Saturday, Ramai and I headed out for what we called our “date day,” which involved a cruise down the Tweed Coast to enjoy the sunshine (momentary as it was, but still… SUN!), lunch in Cabarita by the beach, a jaunt through Hastings Point and Pottsville and then a trip through the valley on the way back.

As we were driving down a – thankfully – pretty isolated road, we spotted something black hanging out in the middle and after circling back we found the scared little Ninja Turtle you see in the photos. Isn’t he gorgeous? (I’ve named him Michaelangelo). So happy he made it back to the water safe and sound.

On our drive, we also found a (random) ramshackle old tin shed – the perfect backdrop for an impromptu photo shoot.




Holy moly, thank you SO much for your Facebook love. Beyond grateful. Things seem to be happening/ growing at breakneck speed at the moment and again, I bring it back to this sense of being ‘supported.’ It’s a beautiful thing.

Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat



From Friday to Sunday this week I’m going to be retreating it up at the glorious Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat with two of my soul sisters and I cannot wait!

We’re going to spend three days compleeeeetely unwinding and disconnecting, eating delicious organic food and slipping into a (much) slower pace to nurture our minds, bodies and spirits.

Keep and eye out for the full rundown on the blog. This place is heaven on earth and I’ll try my best to take lots of photos and notes for you all!

Our B-school Babes



The biggest thrill of the past week has been the incredible response to the B-School bonus offer Tara and I released last Thursday. HOLY MOLY, you should see the group of women we have in our private Facebook community (the support, already! The conversations! The energy!)

Above is just a small snapshot of what’s been going down. We’re kinda crazy about our girls! Marie Forleo has created a phenomenon with B-School and I know we’re going to be making waves of our own with the crew we have assembled.

Read this if you want in on the action – there’s ONLY 4 DAYS to go before enrolment closes. 

Bits and pieces:

Yoga and Pilates (feels so good to be back on the mat regularly) + celebrations + playing bigger and knowing there’s so much more to come (limitless is a word I’m digging right now) + visualisations, meditation and bolts of brilliance in the shower.



Magic shared, multiplies and this week I’m putting these questions to you:

+ Who are you celebrating? Who in your life deserves a shout out – and why are they so awesome?

+ What are you proud of personally? Give yourself a rap gorgeous, we’re all about self-love and cheerleading around here!

Making Me Happy

It’s been another big week at In Spaces Between headquarters with lots of coaching, lots of socialising, big days on the computer catching up on work and some grand idea concocting thrown in for good measure.

The vibe? High. Energetic. Productive.

The fun? Long chats in the park. Hilarious texts. Emoji icons (I’m only a year late to the game…. not sure why I resisted but I’m TOTALLY ON IT now).

Other? Random tears of gratitude for my husband’s endless support and general radness. Hypoxi. Lazy Sundays. Clarity. Realising it’s time to start planning our Italy honeymoon. Product visioning (stay tuned for news on this one).


The Wedding Harvest





















Weddings? Wha? Didn’t I do all that last year?

Yes, as you all know I’m a happily married lay-dee, but I’m surrounded by girlfriends who are getting hitched in the not-to-distant future, so on Sunday I found myself attending The Wedding Harvest with the gorgeous Sophie from Peppa Hart Bride.

As you can see by the photos, the showcase, which was co-created by my friend Judi from Little Gray Station, was absolutely stunning and I left wishing there was something like it last year when I was in the throes of planning our Big Day.

A highlight was meeting one of my In Spaces Between sponsors, the lovely Dana from Birds of a Feather Letterpress Co. If you’re looking for super spesh paper goods – invites, calendars, you name it – she is definitely your gal (write that down).

Summer Smoothies



I’m such a smoothie fiend and my favourite mix at the moment is banana, frozen mixed berries, chocolate Sun Warrior protein powder (berries + choc = cherry taste!) with water and ice. YUM.

Gorgeous Necklaces



My new necklace from Faith Design has been getting royally loved-up. Aqua pow-ahh! (hey look, I’ve even got lightbeams coming out of my forehead – I always knew I was a unicorn!)

Our New Burleigh Neighbours + B-School Plans



I’m sure you’ve heard Tara and I banging on about it enough but let it be said one more time – we’re freaking amped to be living just a few minutes drive away from each other!

On Friday night, Ramai and I wined and dined at the Bliss/ Farmer “restaurant” for the (the first of many) team dinners and, well, the raw cheesecake above pretty much says it all doesn’t it? The bar has been raised.

BUT WAIT, there’s more… 


In other Tara + Rach related news, the two of us are teaming up to offer any of you that are thinking of signing up to Marie Forleo’s B-School a truckload of “extras” if you jump on board through us. Think full access to us both, personal attention, behind-the-scenes secret sharing and a whole lotta love.

Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement on Monday.

Good Life Project



I’m a long-time fan of Jonathan Fields and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the interviews on his Good Life Project site.

Check out his chats with Marie Forleo (random aside: she’s such a Sagittarian, I felt like she was speaking the words straight from my soul), Kris Carr and Brene Brown (no surprises that I love these three in particular), but above and beyond that, I recommend acquainting yourself with the other vids over time because I know you’ll adore them too.

Smart, soulful people changing the world via the internet. Hot damn, it’s an incredible time to be alive.

Wise Words for Wonderful Women



There are few things I love more than receiving a fresh book in the mail and this gift from Megan Dalla-Camina has definitely landed in my lap at the right time!

Looking forward to curling up in bed over the weekend and tucking in. YES.


That’s me today, and now you…
