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,...
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...
The Skinny on Beauty

The Skinny on Beauty

The problem with society’s portrayal of beauty isn’t that it depicts skinny as beautiful, it’s that it singles out skinny as beautiful. But in order to try to fix this problem, many go in the complete opposite direction, stating that skinny is not, in fact, beautiful, or at least, the most beautiful. But why does curvy have...

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...
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...
No more fabricated confidence for me, please!

No more fabricated confidence for me, please!

I started thinking about confidence this weekend while I was working at Josh’s restaurant during a street festival when they needed some extra hands. I was in charge of putting trays of glasses into the dishwasher, taking them out, polishing them and putting them away. On repeat. For 6 hours. But, hey, I’m getting paid,...
1st blog in a LONG time - hiatus explained & skincare update

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...
Eurotrip Blog: Dublin - Emotions run high (this is a delayed post, sorry!)

Eurotrip Blog: Dublin – Emotions run high (this is a delayed post, sorry!)

My time in Dublin was interesting. I went through some personal struggles that exemplify the emotional journey of traveling. Tamara and I also dealt with a strategic mishap that was embarrassing, but kind of funny, but I don’t have time to tell you both in one blog so the latter will be in a separate...
The Perfect Therapist

The Perfect Therapist

  I don’t have too much experience with therapy. I saw a therapist last year to help deal with the phobia I had as far back as I can remember (emetophobia, look it up. You may be surprised, it’s kind of different). It helped and she was nice, but that’s about it. I saw her...
