Honouring your Gut

112216_GutInstincts

That instinct, certainty and ever growing pull that lays at the crux of your solar plexus … you know the feeling? That little sensation is the key to everything that you wish to unlock within your life. Not sure of something? Check in with your gut? Sure of something? Check in with your gut. So […]

As I unashamedly power through my insanely highlighted copy of CWG* – which is seriously one of the most game changing books of mah life – a few things have stopped me dead in my tracks and have flipped my preconceptions on their head. Firstly – the concept of the universe conspiring to help you. […]

WORD VOMIT – RELATIONSHIPS

tumblr_m8e6br4wy41qg74ow-2

Waiting for inspiration to hit can be a risky little process. On one hand it guarantees that when I do in fact write, that it’s genuine and authentic and somewhat relative and useful; but on the flip side it usually means there is a pretty significant delay in posts. Let’s address the elephant in the […]

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. […]

Makin’ me teary – [aka shit worth sharing]

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

I’m usually all about sharing the ‘making me happy’ kind of stuff. And, look, this title is a little misleading because the links below are both emotional but oh-so-very heart warming. So consider this the ‘making my tears flow over a smiley face’ post. 1 // Pixar have done it again. This incredible and powerful […]

ADJUSTING FOCUS

looking-in-mirror

A few weeks ago, I found myself harbouring pretty low vibe, unkind thoughts. Dem thoughts reserved for the most vulnerable of moments – in a change room, gettin’ nekkid with a new lover, heading to the beach in a sea [pun intended] of 10s – the typical playground for our ‘mean gal’ to be handed […]

POLISHING YOUR SPARKLE

tumblr_lwgx49JHPI1qeamj7o1_500

There’s been an inner stirring, growing stronger each day, begging me to get back to writing and just to sit and chill for a bit. But carving out that sacred time has been a little challenging lately. Because, life. I’ve found lately that erry body around me has been caught up in the most recent […]

STOPPING THE GLORIFICATION OF ‘BUSY’ – CUE THE MOST IRONIC POST EVER.

529147-women-1364745565-623-640x480

I literally have had the concept for this post swirlin’ around in my crazy, non stop churnin’ noggin for the past week. A post that discusses our societal glorification of busy, how I wholeheartedly oppose it, and how flipping our perspective on how we view busyness can radically alter the way we go about our […]

Blessed Bookshelf – This Year’s Top Contenders [SO FAR]

Brooklyn Art Library

// TEXT BOOK ROMANCE // Purchased on a whim after a girlfriend had recommended it and had suggested it might be an interesting read for this single pringle. My biggest girl crush and all around sparkly dose of girl powered inspiration [Zoë Foster Blake] wrote a book about romancing in the modern era. Sounds simples. […]

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 […]
