Hello, and Welcome. I’m Alicia!
I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was 5 years old (seriously!) and worked my way up to become Marketing & Advertising Director of big multinational companies as well as work for many small businesses (including starting & selling quite a few of my own companies). In my life I’ve also studied Beauty Therapy, Naturopathy and Nutrition due to my own health issues including discovering I had coeliac disease, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), dealing with acne, weight issues and infertility.
But so far my greatest journey and achievement has been becoming a mother. I’ve learnt and grown so much (through lots of trail and error), and now, I hope to share the things I love with you!
When I became a Mum for the first time I was shocked by the amount of chemicals and harmful things in food, cleaning products, beauty products and of course medicine that could effect my baby’s health. Especially when we found out our son had sensitivities to many things including gluten, dairy, corn and soy. It became my mission to find safe and healthy alternatives to conventional products to use on my family, as well as create healthy allergen free recipes our whole family could enjoy.
I remember how confusing the overwhelming world of natural living can be when you’re just starting to figure it all out. So I am truly dedicated to share my experiences & stories with you, in hope of offering some inspiration and help on your personal journey.
Health is like money–we never have a true idea of its value until we lose it..
My Personal Health Struggles
I live everyday with nutrition as my priority because of my coeliacs disease and PCOS. Diet massively affects my health and without a clean diet struggle with weight and fertility. But I’ve learnt to love it. Instead of focusing on what I can’t eat, I focus on what I can eat. And from there, create delicious and nutritionally dense foods I can then share with you. I can help you with fertility issues, hormones, weight gain or loss, depression and general health & well-being.
This side of my life is actually what started ‘Holistic Mamma’ in the first place and became a qualified nutritionist… having a child who shared my allergies and the ‘Mamma Bear’ protective nature of wanting him to be able to enjoy treats just like everyone else lead me to create the cupcake & donut range I have on offer today.
It’s my mission to educate and empower people like you, so you can get clued up on your body and take control of your health. I want to help you ditch the stress, the confusion, the disappointment, and give your body the love and attention it deserves.
One of my other qualifications is a Holistic Beauty Therapist. I became very passionate about sharing the importance of what we put ON our skin is just as important as what we put IN our bodies. I love sharing amazing brands that I personally use, as well as how to make your own incredible beauty products for yourself, loved ones and our little ones.
