Ubud or U-bust

Namaste friend. I recently returned from a yoga retreat in Ubud (apologies for the shameless spam on the socials) and I will now prefix every comment with, ‘in Bali…this would only cost…‘. I had a wonderful time. There is something about travel, even to a destination familiar to every man and his downward dog, thatContinue reading “Ubud or U-bust”

Nothing you want is upstream

I love the Law of Attraction and especially enjoy the funny and clear ways it’s explained by Abraham Hicks (many of their conversations with audiences you find on YouTube are enlightening comedy gold). Recently I’ve been thinking about this gem of an analogy from them; we could all be floating and flowing along the riverContinue reading “Nothing you want is upstream”

Quarterly Review

Yikes! A quarter of the year done and dusted. Well that’s flown. Here’s what I’ve been trying…and God loves a trier after all. Simplification: I find too much physical and mental clutter stress-inducing and irritating and so I’ve been trying to simplify wherever possible. I re-Kondo’d my house in Jan so have been mindful ofContinue reading “Quarterly Review”

Beach Vibrations

Did I mention I spent time at the beach over the holidays? I loved it and not just because I could gloat on Instagram about it. I felt chilled out vibes, a sense of peace and community, a connection to nature and a bracing daily ocean plunge. Previously I thought of myself as more ofContinue reading “Beach Vibrations”

Love Bombing

I usually say oms not bombs but I’d change my tune for love bombs. Everything is better showered in and softened by love bomb dust. The boffins at insta must’ve been reading my mind when they created the ‘Heart Eyes’ filter. You can’t help but feel loved-up when you imagine love arrows and hearts comingContinue reading “Love Bombing”

Affirmative

If you come across me muttering to myself, please don’t escort me to the local loony bin (or PC equivalent) because I’m probably reciting affirmations (or hugging and telling giant rose quartz rocks I love them). Affirmations are inspirational statements you say or think about yourself.  These positive phrases help set off a chain ofContinue reading “Affirmative”

Scandi Fever

Is it me or are the Swedish better at everything? I’m flush with Scandi Fever at the moment after frequenting the Scandinavian Film Festival, binge watching “Bonus Family” on Netflix and devouring meatballs. Minimal design, blonde people, cinnamon buns, latte papas. I want to go to there. Flat-packs: While it’s true I can’t find anContinue reading “Scandi Fever”

Core Desired Feelings

Core desired feelings are the way you want to feel daily. They’re not destination driven like some goals but are based on the way you want to feel most often. Not just when you’ve achieved these goals but when you’re on the way to achieving them and all the times in between. Danielle LaPorte says,Continue reading “Core Desired Feelings”

Space Clearing

Recently I took my love of house cleaning to a new level with a space clearing. I have decluttered and cleaned and now I have cleansed. Just as literal stuff can clog up your home, so can energetic stuff. It needn’t be as extreme as ghost-hunters but energy from you and previous residents can getContinue reading “Space Clearing”

Day Tripper

I can very easily stay in my little corner of the world and consider a tram to the next suburb a major mission. In the holidays, I discovered the joy of day tripping. It took me so long to find out. And I found out. I realised that an escape to the country was simplyContinue reading “Day Tripper”
