One of those jobs was as a lifestyle photographer for Time Out Melbourne, producing travel photography, video content and writing features that capture the essence of Melbourne and Victoria. After two years living as an expat in Melbourne, Australia, I am a big fan of the city’s cafes, boutiques, markets and bars.
I didn’t win the competition, but this weekend I am reporting to you from Phillip Island, a region on the coast near Melbourne that is a popular holiday and weekend break destination for Australians.
But I can confirm that they are absolutely adorable and to give you an idea, above is a pic of some Little Penguins at Melbourne’s excellent Zoo. Victoria’s wild and beautiful coastline is another attraction of Phillip Island, along with a range of wildlife parks where you can pet Koalas and handfeed Kangaroos.

If you work but hate your job and have no plans of leaving, you are not living your purpose at all! You have dreams, big ones, but they are just too big and not worth even trying for so you decide to stay where you are because it’s safe, it’s comfortable, it’s what you know. Have you found your purpose and know that you are meant to do great things, but you have so much going on in your life right now that you can’t seem to get started?
If you buy things, to feel happy you may be happy for a very short while but soon you will end up right where you started with that empty feeling of wanting to buy something else.
Not just ideas but also beliefs and desires into a sustainable income that allows you to fulfil your dreams and live authentic to yourself and your beliefs. If you lack the passion for getting through the day and you don’t see the point of waking up, your life has no purpose, sure we all have day where we could do with a lie in or rest, but when you are fighting day in day out to just to get out of bed you lack purpose. You are at a crossroad, you haven’t a clue which way to turn but you stay there anyway carrying on your life, as usual, hoping the choices you have to make will sort themselves out.

Last week, we talked about organic cotton (grown without pesticides, GMOs, or synthetic fertilizers) and whether you should prioritize organic cotton fabrics. The Good News: tampon manufacturers are kind of paying attention to the research and using different bleaching methods, replacing regular elemental chlorine with a chlorine gas. More Bad News: Dioxin is a Persistent Organic Pollutant (POP) – it accumulates in your body over time and doesn’t leave easily.
Repeat Exposure: Even if tampon materials are bleached without elemental chlorine, you’re still getting a tiny bit of dioxin with every single exposure, and that dioxin stays in your body.
Rayon fibers are very abrasive, leaving small cuts on sensitive tissues and can cause ulcerations. Rayon is a highly prefered fiber for the bacteria that causes Toxic Shock Syndrome, Staphylococcus aureus.
The production of rayon fiber is chemical laden, requiring chlorine bleaching to break down the wood pulp.
Yes, traditional tampons may have some bad chemicals and questionable materials, but for many people they are still a necessity. Organic Tampons – if you want to minimize the change in your monthly routine, simply switch to an all-natural or organic brand of products.
Cost: You can find organic feminine care products at some stores ($8 for a box of 20 tampons), but I found significantly better prices online.

It fits securely and allows you to continue any activity: running, swimming, climbing…anything.

The Australia tourism operator is following up a hugely successful campaign run by the state of Queensland a few years back, where Ben Southall won a six month job as a caretaker on a tropical island, with promotional duties mixed in with snorkeling and looking after wildlife. The job will involve exploring Melbourne’s vibrant festivals, music events, cool cafes, hidden rooftop bars and cultural pursuits. They are incredible creatures, spending the whole day swimming in the sea from sunrise to sunset and capable of covering many, many miles in that time. Australia’s wildlife has definitely been one of the main thrills of living here, especially when camping out in the bush during summer. Her big dream, apart from travel blogging world domination, is to launch her own e-magazine. Deep down however you are slowly dying because you know what you are doing right now is not what you really want.
They mean well so you go along with it when what you want to do has nothing to do with what they want for you.
You can’t ‘buy’ happiness that comes from deep within you, but can feel this happiness by finding purpose. Find what I call your ‘Happy Triggers’ (values, passions and strengths) then take it from there.
Today, we’re bringing it one step closer to home with cotton personal care items, specifically tampons.
Even the FDA confirms that the “elemental chlorine-free bleaching” generates dioxins at low levels. However, studies (like this one published in Environmental Health Perspectives, 2002) show that dioxins are still detected in tampons. These open wounds give bacteria and viruses easy access to your bloodstream, increasing your risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (which is caused by bacteria), infections, and STD’s.
Manufacturers state this is done to improve absorption, making the rayon even more abrasive, porous, and absorbent. Grab a spare tampon and soak it in a glass of water for about six hours (although, you’ll begin to see results immediately).
However, there were a few common concerns voiced: the applicator was more difficult to use and the product itself seemed less absorbent.
There is no handy applicator, and you’ll have to be a little more “hands on” than you’re used to. The reviewers do say that there was a lot of practice needed before removing the sponge successfully and threading some string through the sponge would help with retrieval. I feel that the pesticide residues from the cotton, the dioxins from bleaching, and presence of rayon is an unnecessary risk- especially when there are better options available.
Entrants had to make a 30 second application video and were hoping to get one of six roles paying around $100,000 for a six month contract. In my 8 Things Not to Miss in Australia World Travel Dreams post I highlighted Australia’s wine regions and the alpine country.

At the penguin parade they waddle past just a few metres away from where I sit, unconcerned by their excited human audience. These 12 warning signs will help you discover where you are going wrong by not living your purpose. I’m not saying quit, but start being conscious of your life, about where you are now and what you want going forward.
Your scared because your thinking what if I try my own ideas and fail, they will say “I told you your ideas were crazy” “I knew you couldn’t do it” so you don’t do anything, you live a life of pain listening to other people’s ideas of how YOU should live your life.
Money comes from either getting a job or creating enough value in the world to make a living; your purpose comes from deep within. This is one cotton product that women use repeatedly, inside their bodies, for about 30-40 years.
In fact, manufacturers test their own products and report their own results – there is no federal testing to confirm their claims. Having never purchased organic tampons before, I looked up “organic tampons” on Amazon and found several options. Since the organic tampons do not contain rayon, they will probably be less absorbent, and you might replace them a little more frequently. Menstrual cups like the Diva Cup, Lunette, or Moon Cup are soft silicone cups worn internally like a tampon. The high cost may be off-putting, especially if you are not convinced it will be right for you. When you don’t have a sense of purpose you live life on autopilot, living your life for other people. Food and Drug Administration) as “medical devices” and therefore do not have to disclose their contents.
In 2000, the National Toxicology Program labeled dioxin as “known to be a human carcinogen” – that means they have proof that dioxins can cause cancer. Rayon is more abrasive and more bacteria-friendly, exactly what you want for creating a bacteria culture- definitely NOT what you want in a tampon. Seventh Generation’s tampon ingredients are available on their site: Certified organic cotton, certified by Oregon Tilth.
We know more about a bottle of shampoo that is used on our bodies than a tampon that we use in our bodies. In addition to the cancer risk, dioxins are also linked to a number of reproductive health problems including endometriosis, reduced fertility, and inability to maintain pregnancies. However, this is easy for me to say since I LOVE the alternative and don’t miss tampons at all.

With the GOTS certification, it also tells us that the entire production process meets GOTS standards including a Total Chlorine-Free bleaching process, using hydrogen peroxide instead of chlorine gas.
