Part 5 – LiveLifeWell with Wellness Warehouse & Mel’s Postbox


Melissa Javan


1. The woman behind Mel’s Postbox – meet Melissa

I’m Melissa Javan, a mom of a three year old girl and I’m married to a musician. Although I’m a Writer by trade and I do content marketing. As a hobby I blog about personal finance and motherhood. I started blogging when my baby was six months old, as a way to find myself again. In the process, I’ve learned how to live intentionally and I get the opportunity to talk to other moms (also bloggers) on things like health, parenthood and sisterhood.

2. Why you choose to #livelifewell

I found that I spend a lot of money on take outs while being at work. This was an unhealthy way of living, so I’ve decided to plan my lunches at home and bring lunch and snacks from home. I’m on a mission to become debt free so that I can save more money for my child’s future, for example.

I also want my little girl to eat healthy snacks (she’s forever asking for sweeties), that’s why I’m opting to finding healthier options.

My last reason is of course the fact that our health is our wealth. Husband works during the night and he’s always snacking too.


3. Share with us what you bought at Wellness Warehouse

I bought a lot of healthy snacks like quinoa chips (yummy), mixed nuts, dried fruit and snacks called nibbles. I’m a big chips lover, so the quinoa chips is a healthier version. It’s tasty and reminds me a little of popcorn too. Most of the other snacks are for my daughter and husband. My daughter loves asking for “sweeties”, then I give her dried fruit instead.

      That’s interesting, I’ve never thought of using reusable wipes. Will check it out as I’m interested to see how it actually works. I admit that I prefer a “wet” wipe 🙂 Lovely gesture for buying reusable pads. I buy mostly supplements?vitamins, super foods and gluten free and sugar free food stuff.
