EP49: Rebecca Burrow

For episode 49 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with one of her favourite women to follow on Instagram, Rebecca Burrow. If you’re looking for a realistic insight into parenting a toddler, then she encourages you to follow Bec. 

The modern mother, model and founder of Mini Marley Kids is about as real as it gets. She grew up in Wollongong on Sydney’s South Coast, and today lives in Yallingup, WA, with her husband Australian surfer Taj Burrow, their daughter Bella, and another little one on the way. 

At the time of recording, Bec was 16 weeks pregnant. 

This honest conversation was recorded live at an Offline Women’s Circle in Perth, in front of 25 warm and kind guests. Alison hasn’t edited it at all, because she wanted you to be able to experience Bec just as guests did that Sunday.

Bec had the circle captivated. She was generous and unguarded speaking about her time on Australia’s Next Top Model and what being on the show meant for her career, meeting Taj and his Burger Ring proposal, how she coped after losing her beautiful mum, birthing and mothering Bella and much more. 

Thank you QT Perth for hosting Offline in The Murray Room. Thank you Offline’s gift bag partners: Ultra Violette, Remy, Antipodes, Heartwood and Ettitude.

Thanks also go to Sophie, Maddie and Holly for donating their time and expertise to help plan and execute such a meaningful Offline Women’s Circle.

EP48: Gemma Watts

For episode 48 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with one of the most talented and entertaining women in Australian beauty right now, Gemma Watts. The journalist, copywriter and photographer is the founder of digital beauty destination, Glow Journal, and its podcast of the same name.

Gemma started out in fashion journalism before falling in love with beauty, and is now leading the way for objective and informative beauty content in Australia. 

In this episode, Gemma and Alison have a very honest conversation about running their own businesses, why it is important to have a considered strategy and how they both think about growth. 

The pair also discuss the responsibility on creators today to be putting out valuable and original content, their shared experiences with plagiarism and why we should all sit in our expertise. 

Gemma also shares her opinion on sponsored content, how she advocates for greater diversity in the beauty industry, two perspectives when it comes to transparency around treatments like Botox and plastic surgery, and her take on privacy.

EP47: Lara Briden

For episode 47 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with Lara Briden. A naturopathic doctor, women’s health activist and author of what can only be described as a bible for women everywhere, Period Repair Manual, Lara is a period revolutionary. 

Lara’s work is about providing practical solutions and natural alternatives to hormonal birth control. She’s helped thousands of women who suffer from missing periods, hair loss, PMS, polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis, adult acne and more, establish treatment plans that don’t require ingesting synthetic hormones that shut down ovulation. 

This is precisely what happens when we take the pill. 

Lara challenges us to get clear: pill bleeds are not periods. We do not cycle when we’re on the pill. When we don’t cycle, we don’t ovulate. When we don’t ovulate, we don’t produce progesterone. Women not having progesterone is like men not having testosterone. 

She successfully challenges pill medicine with natural treatments including diet, nutritional supplements, herbal medicine and body-identical hormones. 

This episode is a call to action to women everywhere to get empowered through education about their menstrual cycle, and confidently question the advice or diagnosis they’ve been given by a doctor. 

Lara also educates on how to identify you’ve ovulated and why fertile mucus exists.
