We’re on a health kick this issue and sharing some ace tips to get you through the winter months well and warm!


Let’s face it, our southeast winters are quite mild however for any acclimatized local it can be time to pack away the flip-flops and take some tips from our Big Chill feature and get your bods ready for warmer days ahead. Plus find a touch of fashion for young and old, inspo to keep moving on these cold days and how to avoid the sniffles with some simple immune boosting tips.


For weeks now (actually since the new year!) I have been saying that I will join the gym and get into a consistent fitness routine (and trust me – I have endless excuses!) but it’s crunch time (literally!) and  I am done letting life happen time to get in the driver’s seat again and make ME a priority. This issue of haven has given me loads of #fitspo and I hope it has the same affect on you and your family.


Our May haven business hub events were a super success and have certainly got us fired up to make the right connections through LinkedIn and personally so for our top takeaway tips turn to page 27. (next event // August).


Winter school holidays kick off at month’s end so be sure to flick to our school’s out guide and check out all our super advertiser’s inside who have loads of ideas to keep the kids happy and on the go!
