Q&A with Tiarni Emery - Naturopath & Artist

Instagram recently connected us with Margaret River local Tiarni Emery and we're so inspired by the hub of creativity and health she has put together online. We instantly fell in love with her beautiful art, especially the native flower wooden serving boards - a match made in heaven with our picnic rugs.   Tell us a little about yourself? Hello loves!

Q&A with Picnic Portal's Prue Rustean

Q&A Jana Brunclikova - Naturopath & Plant-Based Chef

Tell us a little about yourself? My fascination with natural health began long before I spent many years studying it. As a child, growing up in vibrant fields of the mountains of Czech Republic, which were abundant with herbs and wildflowers, folk remedies and nature, I discovered the power of plant medicine and its healing properties. It has never left me since.  Fast forward to today, I have spent many years teaching people how to regain and reignite their health through my naturopathy clinic where I practice with Bioresonace - body natural life synergetic.  Currently located in leafy setting of beautiful Bronte Beach in Sydney, at Orchard St clinic, surrounded by many inspirational like-minded ladies.  We notice you're a native wild flower lover like us,...

Q&A with desert-dweller and storyteller Brianna Madia

I’ve been following this amazing women & her soul mate as they roam around the amazing deserts of America for quite a few years now. They are in the coolest 4wd van, called Bertha, with their two dogs. Brianna is one of my favourite accounts on Instagram, a real beauty, full of adventure and loves to be free in her raw, wild ways.  They live a life full of freedom and happiness and it shines through in the way she writes, not just sharing the shiny parts of her life, but the REAL VAN life as she likes to called it... the non glamorous side. Brianna and Kieth's life motto is ‘never leave the dogs behind’.  Recently they went through...
