Welcome to my blog!

I have started my blog “Made In Sydney”, today on February the 3rd 2015 with purpose.

The Purpose

Of my Blog is to create a a FREEDOM SPACE – OPEN TO EVERYONE – to interact and discuss ideas about issues that are presented in the blogs. I would love to hear from ALL readers, tell me what you think or expand on anything… CREATE – BE FREE – BE YOURSELF!

Feel free to engage with me in my expansive Blog journey – exploring the arts, gastronomy, holistic health, mental health, philosophy, Sydney life, individual narratives, travel experiences and personal insights.

My Blogs format will consist of 9 key subject areas: Eat Me!, Art Speaks, Wanderlust, Urban Warriors, Pedestrian (People & Places; and In the Weave), Odd Socks, Vitality, and the Crux.

Eat Me! will be a section dedicated to food reviews, blogs about cooking and recipes.

I studied fine arts and will express my interest in art theory via my page Art Speaks for reviews on art exhibitions, theatre, and to post blogs on my own artworks.

I come alive when i travel so would love to share my travel experiences and articles on monthly highlighted destinations in the blogspace Wanderlust.

Improving the quality of life and happiness of others drives my career choice in mental health. I am passionate about tackling mental health issues and would like to share my views, articles and research in the section Urban Warriors. I would love to invite people experiencing mental health issues to interact and engage with one another in this section.

I am a firm believer in the power of nutrition and diet on your health and wellbeing. In the words of Hippocrates “Let Food Be They Medicine”, nutrition can play a key role in the prevention of disease and maintenance of psychological well-being. I will explore diet, exercise, meditation and holistic approaches to health in the blogspace Vitality.

The Crux will be a section where i occasionally blog about social-political and environmental issues.

Pedestrian will be dedicated to everyday life here in SYDNEY – observations and people i meet, stories i hear and have permission to share can be posted here. In pedestrian i will all have three sections: People & Places; and In the Weave. From my work with Goldfish Swimwear Australia and general interest in fashion i will blog occasionally about Australian designers and fabrics or trends which interest me. This section will be categorised as In the Weave.

Odd Socks – is my abstract philosophical open forum for posts about anything and everything. In this blogspace i will share my spontaneous automatic poetry, insights and uncategorized ideas.

MIA – i will leave you guessing…
