As a child dealing with eczema and allergies, a naturopath helped Carla by drastically changing the foods she ate, setting her on a lifelong wellness path. Fast forward to her career as a beauty editor when she realized she could shift the beauty industry by pioneering the importance of gut health and natural beauty.
Morning person or night owl?
Morning person. I love getting up early before anyone else and having me time to think, daydream, and drink tea.
I go for a walk or run along Bondi Beach, stretch, breathe in the ocean air and exhale any stress. It clears my mind and sets me up for the day.
I love to take a bath. Whether a full bath or foot bath I add Epsom salts, which are rich in detoxifying sulfur and relaxing magnesium, with a few drops of essential oils.

I don’t really have a uniform, but I love to be comfortable. In winter I love throwing on a cosy coat, and in summer I am drawn to flowy dresses in silk or linen.
Growing up in Australia, I love being in nature. For me, a swim in the ocean or going for a walk in the bush is the ultimate soul food.
I make sure I include lacto-fermented foods in my diet every day. They’re great for gut health and glowing skin!
Eating caviar straight from the jar.
Dancing!! (People tell me I am quite a good dancer, although my children strongly beg to differ!)
Juggling parenthood and family with running a business. And tuning a guitar by ear. Greatest joy? My children (and food).
My children (and food).
Look after your gut, be gutsy, and follow your gut instinct!
