Welcome! It’s so wonderful to have you here. This space holds no judgement. We are all on our own journey, and that looks different for everyone. I, by no means, have life ‘figured out.’ I’m still learning, too, and will continue to do so each day of my life. I hope I can inspire you to live a life more aligned with your values, so you, too, can enjoy this precious we’re blessed with.
I’m a photographer, videographer, activist, and blogger who is passionate about both health and nutrition, and the planet. I’m Vanessa, Simply Natural Nessa. I’ve created this website, Simply Natural Nessa, as a way to share alternative, holistic methods for achieving optimal health, to help others reach their full potential and feel their best.
Instead of following the mainstream method of treating ill health with conventional medicine, I look at ways to help heal the body and regain a healthy equilibrium through natural means such as proper nutrition, exercise, environmental factors, and changing mental states and mindset (to name a few).
I love spending as much time as I can out in nature, particularly in the mountains and at the beaches around where I live on the coast, in northern Australia.
My blog is like my diary. You’ll get natural health and sustainable living tips, as well as regular updates of my new learnings and findings as I adopt a more slow living approach to life. I also share a lot of behind-the-scenes content of my life as an entrepreneur, content creator, and natural living enthusiast.
Here’s a little bit about me…
I was plant-based for six years, I’m no longer anymore. I have a Patreon and YouTube channel where I share my learnings and creations for natural, toxic-free, plastic-free, sustainable alternatives to everyday products, recipes, and items we use on a daily basis for things like skin care, cosmetics, remedies, food, hair care, beauty, and more. I am currently building my skills in photography and videography to fulfil my dream of becoming a marine photographer and videographer. I also work with brands who share similar values as me, who are looking to create sustainable alternatives to popular products, which I share on my blog and social media.
I do my best to show others how simple and fulfilling it is to be a conscious consumer, sharing how I live my life this way. My pantry, my wardrobe, the products I use, and how I get around, are just a few examples of things I talk about. I also encourage people to consider how their daily choices and decisions impact their health and the planet.
I never force my opinions or views on others, but rather show through my own choices how there can be other ways of living, and (hopefully) this inspires others to consider a different way of life.
I believe living a natural, sustainable lifestyle is the best way to thrive while here on this beautiful planet we call home.
I hope you join me on this journey to better health and an overall better quality of life.
Lots of love,
