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 […]

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 […]

A Word on Happiness

1d63dead36ae6cda0bdbd2b12a676b93

happiness /hapɪnəs/ noun the state of being happy Happiness – a pretty elusive term. How is it possible for a nine letter sequence to succinctly capture all that ‘happiness’ encapsulates, inspires and yields. It just can’t. And the beauty of its concept is that it’s totally independent and individual to each and every one of us. […]

MY SOUL RETREATED (+ I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IT NEEDED TO)

So, somehow, in the craziness of the past month, I have ignored this poor little bloggy platform in favour of getting swept away in the hefty tides and currents of day to day life. I make no apologies, it’s just the way it goes, but I have missed you and I hope that your lives […]

WHERE IN THE WORLD HAVE I LEFT MY HEART?

I mentioned in a previous post, that I have a little Voldemort in me. Nothing to be scared about, I’m not planning Wizarding World domination, but over the past few years I too left bits and pieces of my soul all around our amazing little planet. I’ve been fortunate enough to have explored three continents over […]

EXPLORING MY OWN BACKYARD – THE MELBOURNE FILES

thumb_IMG_9348_1024

  Until I work out a way to become a full time adventure seeker and experience collector, I’m going to have to settle for shorter, more local, backdoor (minds out of the gutter …) kind of deals. Case in point – my very random, spontaneous, YOLO moment of booking a weekend away in Melbourne. Incentive […]

Learning to Love the Commute

I write this post, curled up in foetal position in my beanie and cons with a scarf wrapped around my legs for warmth, on a bus en route to Perth. I’ve done this journey a fair few times over my four year period of living ‘Douth’ and have always weirdly enjoyed what other people tend […]

Why the people you meet while travelling are some of the best people you will ever meet.

I want to preface today’s discussion by recognising totally and completely that my relationships (in all of their delicious forms – family, friendship, romantic, sexy, platonic) are my greatest blessing + free square of my life. I have somehow attracted a tribe by my side of inspiring, kind, hilarious, beautiful + connected individuals since birth. […]

I couldn’t help but delve into another travel inspired post for you all today – mostly because I am a got a severe case of the itchy feets and wanderlustin’. Now I understand that my experiences are quite bias in some respects, as I haven’t seen nearly as much of this incredible continent as I […]

It is no secret that I fell head over heels in love with Peru. It’s my happy place. The spiritual epicenter of South America. The birthplace of fun and adventure. Cities so beautiful, it hurts. And trails and explorations that will leave you awe struck and breathless. I traveled with G Adventures across this epic […]
