Moreover, modern collectible weapons are also a real work of art: decorated with exquisite parts, decorated with precious stones, such weapons will perfectly decorate any interior.

Collective Daggers

Twenty thousand years ago, hunters decided that they needed some kind of short piercing weapon, which you can always carry with you, and which is convenient to act in situations where you can neither swing a club nor use a spear. So the idea of ​​creating a dagger appeared. The first daggers were made of wood and bone. Most likely, the raw horns of animals were originally used as a dagger. Of course, the bone dagger could not equal in efficiency with a long spear. But it did not need to compete with other weapons. After all, the dagger had its advantages: low weight and comfortable dimensions. It did not interfere with carrying and using a spear, bow or club. The dagger successfully served as a melee weapon and a backup weapon.

The dagger should create a feeling of a single whole – no protruding elements or contrasting spots (except design). Be sure to take it in hand to check its ergonomics. The form should be easy to handle. If you feel the slightest discomfort, it is better to abandon the instance, or even the model. And the cause here can be either an imperceptible defect, or an unsuccessful design or constructive decision. The importance of the question of ergonomics illustrates the attitude of the masters in the fulfillment of individual orders – for the manufacture of the handle the measure is taken from the customer’s hand.

What you need to know about swords?

The sword is designed for shots and chopping blows, helps to quickly reflect the opponent’s attacks. Since the sword is longer than the dagger, it is much more difficult to hide it in the folds of clothing. A regular or training sword is not as insignificant as a knife.

THE BEST HEALTHY CAFES IN BYRON BAY

No Comments

Byron is an amazing destination for so many reasons, but the food here is HIGH up on that list. After multiple trips there to zen out from busy Sydney city life, I feel well-placed to give you my favourite haunts for health food. Think epic acai bowls, avocado toast and poached eggs you ever did eat! You probably caught it all on my ‘gram at @thefitfoodieblog, right?!

THE FARM

Set in one of the most beautiful settings just out of Byron town centre is The Farm – which plays host to restaurant Three Blue Ducks. Their main-stay restaurants in Bronte and St Peters in Sydney are SO crowded on weekends, but with good reason. The produce is fresh, the portions generous, and the menu inventive with seasonal produce. Load up on their salads with herbs fresh from their garden beds, local roasted pumpkin, and don’t forget the house-made almond milk in your coffee. It’s also open for dinner, but service can be slow later in the day. Just get on Byron time and suck it up.

BAYLEAF CAFE

Bayleaf is in the centre of Byron and is the perfect spot for a healthy weekend brunch and people watching. Hang out with a delicious Dandelion Chai and watch the surfers stroll past with their boards. You’ll want to get there early for a table, but if you hit the rush, hang out for a cuppa at their sister cafe next door until a table comes free. The favourite dish here? the ceviche (seasonal) or green brekkie bowl (below).

Nowadays, when many people work in offices or move to remote work at home, it is very important to keep yourself in good physical shape to maintain good health and general body tone. Sitting work deprives the body of the necessary physical activity, which leads to the emergence of a number of very different diseases characteristic of office workers. In addition, the body loses its tone and becomes not only less attractive but even loses its healthy. In order to give body the necessary physical activity, many people are actively involved in sports. It helps them to keep their bodies in good shape and healthy. It is the absence of energy that often leads to another problem – the lack of motivation. Sports are able to give not only the health of your body, but also provide you with the necessary positive emotions and increase your level of happiness.

HEALTHY HEDONISM: 5 SWEET SNACKS I LOVE

No Comments

Cravings happen to all of us. I don’t understand people who say they don’t crave a sweet treat every now and again – WHO EVEN ARE YOU?! A little sweet treat here and there makes food a joyful experience, to be savoured and shared with friends, or enjoyed solo with a healthy hot chocolate for dessert.

Here’s my current go-to when sweet cravings kick – without the guilt of a sugary chocolate bar! Just note that as it’s Easter, I totally admitted to eating a Lindt Bunny for lunch – full sugar, milk chocolate bunny – with zero regrets. It’s all about balance baby!

1. COATED ALMONDS

Sometimes raw nuts just don’t hit the spot. We all know almonds are packed with healthy fat, fibre and protein, so why not try some yoghurt coated ones when you need a healthy, sweet snack? I LOVE the new ‘Dipped + Dusted’ range from Shelby’s. The Rasberry Dark Chocolate and Matcha Yoghurt Almonds (made with ceremonial grade matcha sourced from Kyoto) are my absolute favourite. Best of all? They have no refined sugar, gluten, artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols!

2. PROGURT

Greek yoghurt + protein powder = progurt. Amazing if you’re super hungry and really need to amp up your protein intake. If you’re dairy free, try it with coyo or soy yoghurt and your favourite vegan protein. I usually go for traditional chocolate with 1/2 tsp raw cacao for that extra chocolatey kick.

3. SNACK OR PROTEIN BARS

There are so many natural snack bars on the market now – the choice is yours! Make sure you avoid added sugar, fillers, preservatives and sugar alcohols (anything ending in -ol, like malitol). My ultimate indulgence is THIS Peanut Butter, Dark Chocolate + Coconut Bar. They also have 10g of protein!

4. BERRIES

If you’ve ever visited Australia (or are lucky enough to live here!) you’ll know the berries here are NEXT LEVEL. They’re so juicy and flavourful – I always have stacks of them in my fridge and grab a handful when I’m not super hungry but just need that sweet kick in my mouth.

5. HEALTHY HOT CHOCOLATE

I have one of these after dinner every single night. I’m such a creature of habit. I think having ‘pudding’ every night growing up in the UK is to blame for me needing after-dinner sweet somethings. Instead of tucking into Jam Roly Poly, I heat up 200ml of almond milk and a whisk in a few tsp of stevia chocolate drinking powder. YUM.

What are some of your favourite healthy sweet snacks? Help your fellow sisters out and leave a comment below!

CANNABIS WITHOUT THE HIGH – WHY CBD IS THE NEW TRUE SUPERFOOD.

No Comments

CBD. Cannaboidol. You’ve probably heard of it, or have a girlfriend whos taking it, and you’re wondering what all the buzz is about. Touted as an appetite suppressant, acne treatment, anxiety and pain reliever amongst many other things, this phytocannabinoid was actually discovered back in 1940. An extract of the cannabis and it’s relative hemp plant, CBD is the non-psychoactive component of weed that doesn’t get you high. In fact, it actually works against the compound that gets you high (THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (pssst – the “delta-9” is silent…)) acting as a buffer against the effects of weed. It’s has been approved for medical use in Australia (think reducing seizures in epileptic patients and nausea control in chemo patients), but currently is VERY strictly controlled.

Before we go on, I have to clear up one thing. Cannabis of any kind (unless prescribed by your licenced GP) is not yet legal within Australia without a prescription. Whilst CBD is an extract of the cannabis plant that has no psychoactive effects, it still remains illegal to purchase, carry or hold in your home. That being said, there are retailers overseas (and a few in Australia now!) selling CBD products that are flying under the government radar. Interested? Check out Hemple, Floria and Ananada.

NB: I am not condoning this, merely providing information for the canna-curious.

Go here to read the official statement on hemp seed oil’s legality in Australia.

Whilst clinical research is still so desperately needed to confirm the mass of anecdotal evidence emerging from frequent CBD users, this phytocannabinoid still desperately requires a solid research base. Fortunately, my very own college is leading the way in a world first clinical trial investigating whether medicinal cannabis can benefit patients with malignant brain tumours. I’m hopeful more research will begin to appear around the globe focusing on the benefit for the everyday consumer. Let’s be honest – who isn’t anxious and/or struggling to get enough sleep?

REPORTED HEALTH BENEFITS OF CBD

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Mood boosting
  • Pain relief (oh HEY menstrual cramps)
  • Reduces anxiety and depression
  • Alleviates cancer-related symptoms
  • Reduces acne, eczema and psoriasis
  • Neuroprotective properties – reducing tremors and seizures
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Anti-ageing (thanks to the stress reduction)
  • Appetite suppressant

HOW IT WORKS IN THE BODY

It gets a bit technical here, but for the purpose of this (already lengthy) post, a quick overview: the endocannabinoid system (ECS) part of your body’s internal communication system that is located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. 

Your natural chemical messengers produced in your bod that interacts with the ECS are called cannabinoids. They interact with receptors, including the cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2, to regulate many physiological systems in the human brain and body, helping to improve health and homeostasis (balance within the body). Ingesting a cannabinoid likeCBD is essentially a replication of the body’s own natural defence system to boost it back to good health. OH YEAH. Not only that, CBD is a legitimate alternative plant-based option for those currently taking chemical medications.

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

I can report that after many research trips to Canada where Cannabis use is now legalised (both medical and recreational) as of October 2018, I have had my fair share of experiences with legal CBD. Experiences with the plant extract so far have been everything I had hoped and given I’m a Type-A inherently anxious person, I have definitely experienced many benefits – notably deeper sleep, anxiety relief and pain reduction on my torn ankle ligaments via topical application.

WHERE YOU’LL FIND IT.

The black market is growing, and fast, in response to consumer canna-demand in Australia and a quick search online bring up a number of stores selling CBD products – just like this one.

Overseas where it’s legalised, you’ll find CBD in everything from bath bombs, gummies, face creams and vape pens to medicinal chocolate peanut butter cups. Jealous.

Interestingly, after a recent trip to the HHI Expo in Sydney, I found that there are even Australian-based companies selling products that allow you to make your own perfectly-dosed edibles at home with ‘medical butter’ machines.

Note: Products called hemp oil or hemp extract may contain little-to-no actual CBD. Unless the label tells you how much CBD is in the bottle and how much CBD there is per serving, you can’t be sure it’s legit and you may be wasting a LOT of dollars.

DISCLAIMER: Please for the love of god do your own research on CBD and speak to your GP if you plan on using it (which again, is currently illegal in Aus, officially). Although a natural product, CBD can interact with other medications. The results of any CBD product will vary depending on a person’s own biology. After all, cannabis is complex and it can affect people in different ways. Your receptors will be different to my own, and Felica on Instagram who’s waving her vape pen around. If you do decide to try it (medicinally, of course) – always dose low, and go slow.

4. Remove using a clean, damp face towel and warm water.

5. Drink a large glass of water to help boost that glow!

Activated charcoal draws out bacteria and micro0-particles to the surface of the skin, so you can cleanse deeply.
