In 2011 I started an online business called I’m Not Fussy and Lee Holmes was one of our founding contributors, she’d been on an incredible healing journey through food and that year, launched her first book, Supercharged Food.
Since then her career has really taken off; she’s a regular contributor to several global food publications, she’s written and published 6 print books and several e-books, she’s shared the stage with some of the world’s finest health and wellbeing teachers and this week. Last week she was in Palm Springs filming a television show and well this week, she was hanging out in Lightning Ridge!
The power of internet brought Lee and I together 5 years ago and since then we’ve followed each other on Facebook…which was a thing then, but not as it is now!
On Friday I saw Lee post that she and her hubby were getting on the train in Sydney to make the trip out west to Lightning Ridge and of course, I messaged her straight away and offered to show her around!
We had a gorgeous afternoon on Saturday hopping around the fields of Lightning Ridge getting photos of Lee, finding great locations for video shoots and I made certain she and hubby Justin fell in love with the place, so they will return! We had a delicious meal at Bruno’s and then soaked under the stars at the Bore Baths! I connected Lee to my friend Lyndahl and her teepee and we stopped at the Australian Opal Centre hole for a photo opp!
It’s so nice sometimes to see your town through the eyes of an outsider; especially one as passionate about Australia as Lee, she’s so keen to use the considerable leverage she has in the marketplace to ‘put Lightning Ridge on the map’ for something else!
Lee has a gorgeous new face mask/scrub that contains the kaolin clay from Lightning Ridge – it’s precious and I tried a little on Sunday as a pick me up after a hectic week and it’s really luscious!
Lee is as gorgeous in spirit as she is in human form and it was a total treat for me to share this place I love and am so passionate about, with a kindred spirit.
Our journeys’ intersect in so many ways; our healing stories not dissimilar and our passion for connecting people to healing runs strong in our veins.
Lee was super impressed with THE Hungry Spirit Kale (she’s a big kale fan) and how abundant it was and had all kinds of ideas of other products we can share with the world that is prolific and healthy grown right here in the Outback!
It was a totally supercharged Saturday for me!
