As I grow The Craving Shift community, there is one thing that truly inspires me to consistently and constantly keep going – that is to inspire all women to invest in their (and their families’) health and help them see how much power they have to transform their health and well-being.
I passionately write about natural conception and pregnancy and although I will continue doing so, I feel that beyond this, my ultimate WHY is to inspire women who are family nurturers and care-givers that simple daily health practices and decisions can have a huge impact in our children’s future health and well-being.I envision a world where families live happy, healthy, fulfilling and nourished lives.
I wrote the following in the About Page of this blog:
“I consider myself lucky as Australia makes it easy for me to choose healthy food and toxin-free alternatives to personal and home care products. My dream is to make this the “new normal” for other Asian countries like the Philippines where I’m from. I know this may take a while but I will do my part by growing this community.
One other thing that I can do right now is to help businesses in the holistic health industry to thrive and succeed! I realise that the more we support “health entrepreneurs”, the more we’re spreading awareness and education about the future health of our families.”
My Love For Online Shopping (I am not your typical shopper though)…
Now I must admit that ever since we moved to New Zealand then Australia, my online shopping has increased a lot! I consider myself an unconventional shopper though, as although I occasionally shop for clothes/ vanity products, what I enjoy shopping for the most are health and toxin-free personal care products (well, cosmetics included). Since I became a member of NourishedLife, I have discovered so many local brands which are doing massive innovation in the health space. Fortunately, NourishedLife is also filled with so many helpful content that I get more education about healthy living and toxin-free living in this community alone.
I love to do my research so naturally before I purchase anything online, I’d check out these brands’ websites and stories. I am not sure how to explain it but I get so inspired every time I see these natural brands’ stories and their WHY. I think it just really reflects my passion to inspire women to transform their health and their families’ health. It makes me happy knowing that I’m able to support these local health entrepreneurs and to start sharing about them to the world. In my opinion, this part of the world (Australia and New Zealand) have the most innovation in the health space. I am honestly in awe how locals are able to come up with such ideas – and I’m even more astounded that they successfully see these ideas through and turn them into real businesses!
This Is Why I Need Your Help – health entrepreneurs in Australia and New Zealand!
It’s been only a year since we moved to this beautiful country and although I have already known (and tried) several wonderful local health products, I know that there are so many more wonderful products out there!
My goal is to feature YOUR brands and stories so that more people all over the world will get to know more about YOU. Aside from inspiring the many women in our families by introducing them to your wonderful, innovative and life-changing products, I also hope that aspiring health entrepreneurs can get inspired by your stories and all the wonderful things that you are trying to do! By featuring you and your products – I hope that other health enthusiasts not only get ideas but that they also get to expand their views of what’s possible when it comes to building their own health businesses.
I will start planning my content for 2018 and I would need your help to introduce me to your brands. Google is my number one tool but it is also time-consuming. I work full time and I do this as a side hustle. Thus, I would like to ask your help by joining me on Instagram and ‘nudging’ me (in any of your posts) by using the hashtag #thecravingshift. I will then start getting to know more about your brand and products, which I’ll then use in all my blog and social media content in 2018! I am not sure yet but in the future, I can also consider doing feature interviews to make the experience even more engaging.
Let’s Encourage Women To Shop Consciously

I always say that women (especially mums) have the most influence when it comes to families’ food, home care and personal products. Most of the time, dads and children will just consume whatever the mums purchase. I personally think that a little effort in looking for more healthier alternatives will have a lasting impact to the health of all families globally. This may sound like something that’s hard to achieve, but we only need a few committed women making that conscious decision to purchase healthier, toxin-free and more sustainable products than those big commercial brands which are full of chemicals and harmful ingredients. And when these women try to share the ‘shift’ they did with other women they know – we can all start impacting families’ health one household at a time!
I am not a mum yet, but I can already see myself becoming even more passionate about health and nutrition once we have a baby. I am also calling out to all mums and mums-to-be to join me on my Instagram – this is where we can support each other as we lead our families to living a healthier, more fulfilling and more nourished lives!
