THE UNCOMFORTABLE CONFINES OF COMFORT

a1d131a327dd96e701c0c8e7d3076013--night-sky-stars-night-skies

As a kidlet, I was definitely a ‘better safe than sorry’ kind of kid. Change was an unnecessary side product of life, and one that I strived to avoid at all costs. Change was scary, unsettling, disarming and often led to challenges that I just wasn’t willing to face. As a teenager, changes were bad. […]

5 Travel Hacks [technology stylez]

tumblr_l82ymfAZJ11qbkwn4o1_500

I’m a pretty simple little human. Remarkably flawed in a number of areas. And whilst I may not know fashion, or grace or poise … if there is anything that I know in life it’s probably within the realm of thrift and shortcuts; and travel. So today’s post is dedicated to my two loves – […]

So, you want to do a Contiki?

I spoke about it briefly in a previous post about solo vs group travel, but now that I’m home on Aussie soil and have satiated my Contiki thirst [so to speak], I feel like I’m in a position to share a little insight with those of you who are unsure about this company and what […]

Ridin’ Solo [on the road as a solo traveller]

If you, like myself, find yourself a little single, with friends who are doing all sorts of wild and amazing ventures but none of which align with your own travel plans or destination desires, you may opt for a solo adventure and consider traveling independently. Now as I work through the pros and cons in today’s […]

LONDON CALLING – adventures of a first time U.K. dweller

6241693680_IMG_0710

I didn’t know how I would vibe with London – im a self admistted (newly forged) country girl. Totally sensitive to the frenetic pace and busyness that big cities often attract or induce. So I was quite cautious that putting aside 10 days to explore London was a total lapse of judgment and is soon […]

PODCAST FLOOZY

They say that admitting you have a problem is an integral part of healing your addiction. So, here it goes … I’m Emily and I’m a podcast-a-holic. Total sluz for the podcasts. Absolutely cannot get enough. Would pod all day, every day, if I could. Podcasts have exploded into our world over the past few […]

REFLECTIONS ON THE POWER [AND GIFT] OF TRAVEL

thumb_12961464_10154837321022699_488507404554014601_n_1024

A year today, I was wracked with nerves, terrified of the stretch of unknown terrain that lay before me and I lugged a 14kg bag onto a big, steel Emirates bird and trusted. I trusted that the little voice in my heart that had whispered ‘South America‘ since 2010 was lovingly leading me to wherever […]

QUANTUM MOMENTS and A LIFE WELL LIVED

QUANTUM MOMENTS and A LIFE WELL LIVED

Today’s post is the amalgamation of two seemingly separate trains of thought // epiphanies // recent realisations that I soon came to realise weren’t actually all that distinctive or different of concepts to not be shoved in the same post. So here we are. If you are ridiculously time poor and want the condensed and […]

THE LIFE CHANGING MAGIC OF BONERS

I am known to friends and family to use the word ‘boner’ way too liberally. If someone is passionately sharing a story about universal synchronicity and divine guidance – I reply with ‘Ooph, spiritual boner’. If I’m reading the incredible words and ideas of a brilliant mind – I acknowledge my ‘intellectual boner’ silently to […]

SHIFTING GEARS [AND WHY THE SUPERMOON CAN EAD]

tumblr_m2aqcq1tnr1qh3v5mo1_500

I love lunar cycles, I do. I truly honour the push and pull of energies, the influence that the moon has on our mood, energy and physicality, the particular connection between lady cycles and lunar cycles (side note – reading Adore your Cycle by Claire Baker and it’s seriously empowering and game-changing) … I dig […]
