WHEN THE WORDS DON’T FLOW SO EASY

b32befcfa2e07779aefa6cc8d48ff74d

Dean Koontz knows what’s up in this girls’ head. I am obsessed with words. Reading them, creating them, weaving them into lyrical prose, exploring the words of others, teaching them – both my careers in language therapy and in writing are grounded in this common theme of an absolute infatuation with words and expression. So, […]

If we haven’t met yet …

Oh hey there. I thought it high time that we were better acquainted and that you hear the back story of Bless this Mess. Maybe you’re a regular to the blog but know nothing about me, or perhaps you’ve stumbled across this site and are wondering how it’s even possible that ‘the Universe’, profanities, o-gasms […]

WHY THE INTERNET IS DOPE

I totally can see both sides of the ‘internet and modern technology is ruining society’ argumental coin. But, I’ve always been a glass-half-full kind of girl (and side note, air is ‘something’ so actually the glass is super full) so I tend to only look for the positives in any given situation. Case in point […]

5 (SIMPLE AF) WAYS TO START SAVING THE PLANET

quotefancy-272987-3840x2160

I don’t know if you’ve noticed the evolving theme in my writing and posts but, as of late, I am all about debunking the naysayers and the beliefs that “I’m too small to make a difference” phooey. Apologies for the profanities that will likely be rife over the next few hundred words but furg that. […]

Why I’m ‘vego’ and why I always will be

vegetarian-article-feature-pic3

I think it has been born out of curiosity rather than out of aggression but the question of “So … why are you vegetarian?” has been thrown at me a fair bit lately. So I thought I would use this forum as a bit of a platform to answer yo’ questions. For ease of reading […]

THE MAGIC OF THE MOON

phases10-5x3w

Last year I received a pendant from a close friend, given at a time when all was feeling very foreign and new and, dare I say, intimidating. It was a stunning piece by ANON.379, of a waxing crescent moon. Representing radical new changes, setting intentions and harnessing all that momentum – this pendant has seen […]

WORDS THAT MAKE YOU TINGLE

qlahq1d4hggl4urdtncqbrxwula6270riwlr1nqbglwivqnu72gq6h4b9x2k7h3y-f

I’m a little bit (read: a lotta bit) obsessed with the words and works of other writers right now. (And yep, that’s right. I said ‘other writers’ … totally owning my identity as a fully-fledged word nerd and calling myself a ‘writer’ these days. Don’t hate.) At a bookstore in Bali, on a recent holiday, I […]

It seems all too fitting that I back up the latest post (all about trusting the universe and lifting your vibe to find your tribe) that I share with you today’s post. It should be a simple review post – talking about what I ate, where I ate it and how good or shiz it […]

REMOVING THE HUSTLE

We have all been told, at one time in our lives, that ‘it’ll happen when you least expect it’. When we are hell bent on finding the perfect job, the perfect relationship, the perfect home … we tend to abandon the concept of ease and instead grasp, grovel and strain. We disregard what we know […]
