THE INSPIRED AND ALIVE AF EDITION – MY PRAYER

12728607_1009393082452033_1956602373_n

I find that the times when I throw myself into new projects and writing ventures (some pretty epic collaborations are unfolding, so stay toooooned my loves), I inadvertently wind up ignoring this little nook. My bad. I’ve always promised that I refuse to write unless inspired to do so, I never want it to feel forced […]

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

everyday-happy-life-quote-Favim.com-523397

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 […]

28 Lessons over 28 Years

il_340x270-812673151_fe3y

On Tuesday it will be twenty eight years since this soul o’ mine first found itself earth side. And, I don’t know if this is a bias opinion, but I think I’ve packed in a fair bit of life and living over those 28 years and in doing so have uncovered treasures and lessons galore. […]

MAN, I FEEL LIKE A WOMAN

I’ve become a little obsessed with the concept of balance; of uncovering the middle ground within the tug of war of our energies. Trying to find my place in the middle of push and pull; in the middle of directive and lost; in the middle of being and doing; in the middle of hard and soft; […]

CELEBRATING FAILURES

5173ab29c409e26d81021a077f97520d

How quick are we to dismiss that which we don’t do well at or have even, God forbid, ‘failed at’? Imagine this scenario – you bump into an old friend whom you haven’t seen you in ages and they ask you how ‘x’ is going. ‘X’ could be a relationship, a business venture, job opportunity, […]

THE MOST POWERFUL TOOL IN OUR POSSESSION

Accountability-art

You know those toys that have the pulley string at the back and have a handful of words//phrases that play, on repeat, from their automated little voice chips? Think Woody, circa 1995, ‘there’s a snake in my boots!’. If I miraculously transformed into a Mattel endorsed talky toy – I can guarantee what my words would […]

UPCYCLED COFFEE SCRUB

As I sipped on my once weekly treat of a delicious nespresso coffee – I sighed, thinking of the waste and unusable byproduct that the pods leave in their wake. But the coffee grounds that reside have simple been pressed and had water run through them – by no means does that render them useless! […]

FEMININITY + BUSINESS – WHY I’M IN LOVE WITH THE XX CHROMOSOME COMBO.

1435760421-heres to strong women

I don’t often jump up on a feminist high horse but I have a declaration for y’all. I am a whole-hearted equal opportunity seeking, I-am-woman-hear-me-roar, cheerleader for errybody around me, wild romantic and optimistic kinda girl. I have been lucky enough to have been raised and surrounded by strong women my entire life. My grandmother […]

WHAT’S LIGHTING YOU UP?

1

I sit, cosied up in my bed, whilst heavy rain splatters on outside and I’m comforted by the familiar feeling of this potent, high vibe, evening energy. I swear these nights hit me when I least expect them. I diligently make my way to bed early, after a pre 7pm dinner like the good little […]
