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.

Salma Hayek Confesses: "I suffered from acne and depression"

Salma Hayek Confesses: “I suffered from acne and depression”

I think this is the first time I have ever seen an A-list celebrity (or any celebrity, for that matter) speak at any length about their emotional struggles with acne (though, as I mention below, I still wanted more). Sure, we’ve heard tid bits from Cameron Diaz and Kiera Knightly, but this is definitely the...

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...

Skincare Time Warp: Going off acne prescriptions + crazy experimentation = finally learned my lesson

Get ready for a blast from the past. Here is a post from my tumblr account from exactly one year ago! Ahhhh time flies and it’s freaking me out! I can’t believe how far I’ve come, but in the same breath, I feel like literally no time has passed. I’ve successfully done away with my...

Orthorexia Nervosa - Taking Healthy Eating to the Extreme

Orthorexia Nervosa – Taking Healthy Eating to the Extreme

The following is a post that I made in February of 2011 on my Tumblr account. I wrote this when I was heading in the direction of a food and health obsession. Everything I wrote is still accurate and relevant, except my emotional and mental connection to eating has changed since then. I no longer...
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...
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...
MUA Lisa Eldridge's Skincare Tips

MUA Lisa Eldridge’s Skincare Tips

I was totally captivated by this video. I love the fact that she has so many years of experience and has tried so many different products, so she really knows her stuff (besides the fact that she’s a makeup artist). I know, many of the products she talks about aren’t natural, but there are a...
Now Magazine's Ecoholic: Pimple-Fighting Tips

Now Magazine’s Ecoholic: Pimple-Fighting Tips

I love how “eco” health and “natural” health are so intertwined. The moment I started reading this article, I could tell that the author, Adria Vasil, knew what she was talking about. I’ve used many of the natural ingredients she suggests and can’t complain. The thing is, last time I tried them, my skin was...

1st blog in a LONG time – hiatus explained & skincare update

This is my first post since Europe. I’m pretty disappointed in myself because I wanted to blog throughout all of my travels… obviously I failed miserably. Once I got caught up in traveling, all of a sudden a week had passed and I hadn’t written. Then it was 2 weeks, and then it was 2...
