THE FACE BEHIND THE BLOG

Hi! I'm Marlee and started Sweet Health Nut back in 2011 when I began my journey toward a natural lifestyle.

I'm the web editor of an interior design and architecture magazine by day, and a health and wellness enthusiast at all times (blogger on evenings and weekends!)

I'm a health-conscious vegetarian, vegan flirt, skincare sampler, beauty junkie, acne fighter, yoga enthusiast, feminist and hopeless giggler who strives to enjoy every last drop life's sweetness.

Quarter Life Crisis?

Quarter Life Crisis?

I quit my job last week. The short of it is that I’ve been struggling with lots of ups and downs (depression? Maybe. I’m not a fan of labels). I couldn’t get out of bed. I wasn’t doing my job (I worked from home on contract so I get paid if I complete the job,...

Video: I figured out how to see a naturopath for free!!!

… I know… I was shocked too. So exciting! The one I went to is the teaching clinic of the Endeavour College of Natural Medicine. If you live in Australia, Endeavour has clinics all over the country so check out their website for details. http://www.endeavour.edu.au/ The main thing is you have to be comfortable with...
DIY Face Mask: Cranberry + Greek Yogurt + EVOO + Honey

DIY Face Mask: Cranberry + Greek Yogurt + EVOO + Honey

I mentioned in a recent post that I really wanted to try using yogurt as a face mask since it contains lactic acid, which is a natural exfoliant. I saw this video from one of the beauty gurus I subscribe to on Youtube (AllThatGlitters21) and felt the need to share it right away! I’m definitely going...

I remembered that back home I had received some free samples from some awesome companies that want you to test out their...
Skincare Review: Clarisonic + OCM + Lerosett

Skincare Review: Clarisonic + OCM + Lerosett

I mentioned a few times in recent posts how I’ve totally abandoned all skincare products to let my skin balance itself out. I also felt like I was relying on products so much that it was causing me emotional stress. That’s why I decided to spend as little time in front of the sink and...

International visa applications/prices + travel advisories + Canadian Foreign Affairs

International visa applications/prices + travel advisories + Canadian Foreign Affairs

As usual, I procrastinated. I knew that in order to receive my Vietnam visa by mail, I would need to apply for it in advance to reduce the incidence of heart-palpitations. Well, let’s just say I waited until almost a week before my departure and before I was about to send my application, cheque, photo...
Pre-departure exorbitant expenses

Pre-departure exorbitant expenses

If you have ever gone traveling long-term, I think you can probably relate to this blog post title. I read all over the internet that the pre-departure expenses were going to potentially add up to more than what you’ll spend while traveling. This makes a lot of sense, especially in my case because I’m booking...

Natural Deodorant – so cheap and easy, make it at home!

I’ve been trying many different natural deodorants for the past several weeks, but I’ve never been 100% satisfied with any of them. I’m not an overly sweaty person, but like most normal people, if I don’t do something, I will start to sweat and smell. I wanted to test out this new concoction for a...
