Welcome to Life, Love & Lettuce

All the Latest

We are all told, “live your life to the fullest”; I am here to do just that. Life, Love & Lettuce serves as a vessel to project my passions, and clue in my loyal readers as to what inspires me in this crazy world.

Join me as I live a sustainable life by growing my own vegetables, keeping my waste in check and managing my stress (without alcohol or drugs) while writing about love.

Don't forget to pick up my gratitude journal and learn how to be happy--it's a simple recipe for healthy living.

Once you've done that, sit back, relax, and read on.

There's nothing I love more than falling into a good book.

I was one of those kids who read everything I could get my hands on...nothing's really changed. If it's got words on it, you'll usually find me reading it.

My dearly beloved cleared out the mail box tonight of th...

Wonderful Wednesday:

Sometimes it's hard when you're feeling as if the world is crashing in on you to find the wonder in the world.

That's why practising gratitude is so important to me.

There was a gust of wind here the other day and it lifted an umbrella into the air. T...

I had time to reflect today.

As I write this, it’s the day before Valentine’s Day--the day when every woman (and probably a lot of men) who are involved in a romantic relationship have some kind of romantic expectation that may (or may not) be met tomorrow.

Remember the...

So I talked about my own struggle with self-care at the beginning of this week. Of course, it’s not only when I’m trying to get back into my yearly routine that I struggle with self-care.

I’m a mother and a wife and a (sort of) employee (I’m self-employed...so my boss c...

It’s been my experience that gratitude is so much more than simply saying, “thank you”. Gratitude has, quite simply, changed my entire outlook on life. It’s opened my heart to new and wonderful experiences and that’s why, as a recovering alcoholic, I try so hard to pra...

Today's blog is more of a vlog :-)

I wanted to talk to you about my Passion Pulse and why my Passion Pulse and my daily journal are such a foundational part of my life.

They're actually the bedrock that a large portion of my happy life and my sobriety are built upon. The...

That goal setting thing…yeah, that used to be me.

Today, I still set some goals, but I know that I’m in a frame of mind to meet them and I know that they’re moving me towards a larger and better life for myself.

I was talking to a friend last night. He happened to tell m...

Welcome to 2019!

Begin as you mean to go on and follow your dreams.

I used to allow others to direct my life. I was merely a player, waiting for someone (anyone) to tell me what to do and when to do it.

That way, when things went wrong (and they usually did...) I didn't...

If you feel as if you’re hanging on by your fingertips at the moment, you’re probably not alone. The struggle is real for those of us who make the decision to abstain from alcohol at this time of the year.

I had the experience yesterday of travelling back from Waiheke I...

Tis the season--or it's going to be in a week or so anyway.

So, why not get a head start on organising your day?

Head over here to pick up the free Masterclass that I've put together for you.

There's a reason that this time of the year is called the "Silly Season" and it'...
