Just because it’s nearing the end of Autumn, it doesn’t mean it should mean the end of your healthy lifestyle! You’ve worked for months to achieve that bikini body, so don’t let all that work go to waste over the upcoming colder months.
These fabulous health and lifestyle brands will help you motivate you to keep up the good work all through those colder months. Whether its wrapping your fingers around a warm flask by Made by Fressko, filled with Flat Tummy Tea, having protein after your workout or even protein mousse when you’re feeling super indulgent – or just keeping up your vitamins to keep you fighting fit, here are our favourite products to help you maintain that summer body!
Tour Flask – made by FRESSKO
Disposible cups are so not in fashion! It’s time to go for something more sustainable and to eliminate that take-away cup culture once and for all. Fressko is a Melbourne based company who believe a great drink should be enjoyed anywhere by anyone. Not only do they look good and are better for the environment – but drinking from a flask is good for you too! They’ve created a 100% BPA and chemical free reusable product that will be yours to keep for a long, long time.
Their philosophy is simple
“Be kind to mother earth, to others, and to yourself.”
and we couldn’t agree more!
Now that you’ve got a gorgeous flask – you need something to put in it!
Flat Tummy Tea is a 2 step herbal detox tea – especially made to kick that bloated feeling and deflate your stomach back to flat – and who knows, maybe one day to help show off those washboard abs!
I’m gluten intolerant but am so easily tempted by a slice of cake with my coffee – so I always have a swollen gluten baby growing inside of me… Flat Tummy Tea is my hero that saves the day, every single time! Not only does it reduce bloating, but it speeds up your metabolism, cleanses your system and boosts your energy levels.
I find their cleansing tea a lot more gentle then other detox teas out there – with a much more pleasant taste and a lot less stomach cramps as I’m trying to get to sleep at night!
So the verdict is in – I’m absolutely converted, but yes I’ll admit I’m definitely bias because they’re a Perth based company and there’s nothing more I love than supporting local businesses!

Swisse have an mission to help people celebrate life every day – I couldn’t think of anything better! There’s a reason why they are Australia’s household name when it comes to vitamins – they cover pretty much health need you may have.
