Hi. My name is Tegan Higginbotham and I’m your Lifestyle Adviser.
In the lead up to the release of my highly anticipated book ‘Lifestyle Guide to Being Perfect at Life and Style”, I’ve put together a little sneak peak package for my fans (I love you all so much, you mean so much to me! xx)
In my tome, I cover 5 key life topics:
With my useful, simple and cost-effective tips, I can help you FIND wholesome, beautiful items that will enhance your life, EAT the right food to help your insides (and outsides!) glow, CARE for the right people who are deserving of your magnificent energy, EXERT yourself physically and mentally so that you’re fit and healthy and finally, SPIRIT. Once your F.E.C.E.S is aligned, you will be ready to move forward into your perfect life and style.
Often I find myself looking for things to spend money on. Every time this happens, I remind myself to ask these things; Will it enhance my quality of life? Is this item a need or a want? Will it give me that edge I’m after? Does it make me better than you?
Here’s 3 things that tick all the boxes.
Rotary & Tiger bangle (available in pink, rose and lipstick pink)£562 (Only available in the UK)
I love this piece because it versatile and oh so yummy!
Thandy & Co 100% Merino Woollen Scarf $367
Cozy, snug and oh so yummy! And with the wool being Merino it’s good for the environment!
Authentic Chanel Matrasse Leather Shoulder Bag (Black) $2,985
(Because we all deserve a little treat every now and then). Perrrrrr-fect!

Just like you, I’m only human and I have cravings from time to time. But I’ve figured out a way to be a better kind of human.
In “Lifestyle Guide to Being Perfect at Life and Style”, I go into detail about how you can cleanse your appetite with recipes and tips and re-approach your new diet with confidence. For now, try this on for size…
We all know that sugar and carbs are massive no-no’s, but has anyone worried about what protein could be doing to our thighs?
I seem to recall from biology classes that proteins form the basic construct of our DNA, or something. But last time I checked, science doesn’t equal hotness, and I’m worried that instead of building our DNA, protein is adding weight to our Dumb Nasty Asses™!
Give this a go: Instead of reaching for the porterhouse next time you’re looking for a nutritious meal, try not. That’s right, not. And see the results.

I’m not saying that you should restrict yourself; I’m saying you get strict on yourself.
I may not have the alternatives on what you can eat, but doesn’t the crux of the problem come down to what we shouldn’t eat?
I’ve also heard that Lemon Detox’s are good.
Care is connection, care is love. Care is something I care deeply about.
Life is riddled with the ins and outs of romance, friendship and fleeting “moments” we share with others. The trick is to completely feel the warmth of these experiences, but not get burnt.
The next time you meet someone new, I’d love you to give this little script a go, and see what different feelings you feel.
You: (Golden Angel of Self): Hi
You: Who are you?
Other: My name is (they will tell you their name)
You: No, who are you?
Other: Oh, I’m a (they’ll tell you a job) and I’m really positive about life. I’m looking to make a new connection with someone that could lead into a flourishing relationship.
Look who just made a friend?
Personally, I haven’t tried doing this. But isn’t it exciting that you can be the very first person to give it a go? I think so.
“Lifestyle Guide to Being Perfect at Life and Style is a book…” - Candice Row, 32
Getting ready for exercise isn’t simply about putting on the latest in sportswear (although I would recommend Lorna Jane’s relaxed-fit, hometown bomber jacket, $129.00), it’s about mentally preparing yourself too. There’s no point just saying “I want to run for longer”, you need more.
Before you go for your run this week, I want you to do this quick mental exercise.
1: Write a list (I like to use Kikki K’s Leather A4 Compendium, $149) of the top three goals you’d like to achieve on your fitness journey (whether that’s looking good in a swimsuit or completing a marathon, it’s up to you!)
2: Break all of those goals into three smaller “activation” goals. For example, if your goal was to complete a marathon, three ‘activation” goals could be to:
-Run for longer
-Compile a good running playlist
3: From here, you can select one of these things to focus on so you’re not only being specific about your goals, but really working with your moods. The choices would be:
“I want to spend 40 minutes improving my cardiovascular by breathing”
‘I want to run for longer”
“I want to chose 10 songs for my play list”
Exercise done and you’re looking good!

That’s the end of my sneak-peak. I hope you enjoy. And remember, Self-help begins and ends with F.E.C.E.S
Stay tuned for release dates!
Hugs and inner peace! X
