Welcome to Skwirlybird’s nest!

Skwirlybird is a wellness and lifestyle blog designed as a sky for me to share with the world, all the many things that make me fly.

Here you’ll find snippets from my life and my insights on leading a consious and sustainable life.

I’m a fun loving yogi living in Jozi with my loving husband and our crazy cute cat, Nunu.

I’ve been practising yoga for 3 years & I’ve still got so much to learn and so far to go, but this practice helps keep me sane, healthy and versatile. Recently I have started running for the first time in my life.

I’m on a path to uplift myself and others, through education, wellness and living a healthy and conscious life.

I am inspired by people making a difference in this world, living their best lives and who believe in themselves and growing others.

To keep up with my journey and news, be sure to follow me on social media, where I share my more day-to-day meanderings…

2018 – My Guiding Word – Positive

  At the beginning of 2017, I saw a shift away from resolutions and that choosing a word to lead, or rather guide, your year had gained popularity. Although the concept of choosing a Guiding Word for the Year has been around for a while, I only saw it take off...

Healthy Choc-Chip Oat Cookies

Ready steady, BAKE: Healthy Choc-Chip Oat Cookies I love baking but find I don't have a lot of time to do it, because even though a recipe may be "quick", the prep and shopping and washing up afterwards are all time consuming. So you must know that these cookies are...
