love people: Haigh's UTZ Easter

With Easter just 1 week away, it brings me great excitement to tell you that my favourite chocolate brand, Haigh's, has announced that it's entire Easter range for 2014 is UTZ certified. This is in addition to the 70% of their existing range that is already UTZ certified, with the aim of reaching 100% over the next 3 years. In doing so, Haigh's has become the first Australian-owned bean-to-bar chocolate manufacturer to achieve this ethical certification. 

UTZ stands for ethical and sustainable farming of cocoa, coffee and tea, providing better opportunities for farmers, their families and our planet. This is great news, not just for your taste buds but for victims of forced and child labour and producers of cocoa worldwide. In partnership with cocoa producers in Ghana and Peru, Haigh's and UTZ will ensure a zero tolerance policy towards trafficked child labour.  

So when buying Easter goodies for your friends and family this weekend, make sure you buy Haigh's and make it an ethical Easter.

For more great ethical announcements soon, keep following me here at Tell Her She's Dreaming or subscribe to Stop The Traffik here.

love your life: joy


When I was younger, I didn't like my middle name. 

I don't know why, I guess I just thought that it wasn't as pretty as names like Louise, Jessica and Stephanie which were all popular for girls my age. But as I've grown older, I've come to love my middle name. In fact, I think it's my favourite part of my name. 

My name is Sarah Joy. 

Today, it's my Mum's birthday. In fact, it's a significant birthday and so today's post is a nod to my Mum, the other 'Joy' in my family. As I reflect on the things that bring joy in life and what it means to have a joyful disposition, I find that my name is an everyday reminder that life is meant to be filled with happiness. Now I know that I'll face challenges and some days even sadness but it is my mandate to celebrate and be thankful for the good things in life, to cultivate a condition of joyfulness for myself, my workplace, my friends and my family. It's a choice, and I choose joy. Not just for today, but again when I wake up tomorrow...



1. a deep feeling or condition of happiness or contentment
2. something causing such a feeling; a source of happiness
3. an outward show of pleasure or delight; rejoicing

choose joy,

love people: thinking outside the box

Sometimes you watch a video that makes you laugh. 
Sometimes you watch a video that you want to share on Facebook.
Sometimes, but not so often, you watch a video that makes you stand up and take notice. It's a video that inspires every fibre of your being and applaud humanity for the creativity, compassion and care we can exhibit when we're driven. It reminds you that with when your skills and your passion come together, anything is possible. 

A World Of Difference With Cardboard is one of those videos.
