Treat & tea💖must be my favourite combo. I’m not one to say no to a treat or dessert. As long as my body fancies it, I will go for it😍
This time, enjoying the simple bites from @skinnybakery
which are great for taking anywhere, and just the right amount for a little coffee/tea time treat🙌🏼 The range of flavours are also delicious, with some all time favourites.
And it all looks cute. Who doesn’t love cute food!?🙈
Check out my new produce bags 😘
These bags are awesome, made from recycled plastic drink bottles and weigh only 10 grams. They are an easy alternative for single use plastic fruit and vegetable bags when shopping.
But wait... Guess what else you can use them for!? ➡️Instead of a colanders to wash fresh leafy greens or fruit you can use these.
➡️ Bulk Goods
➡️ Dried Fruit, Nuts, Grains
➡️ Nut Milk bag
➡️ Herb Drying
How cool is that! Check out @onyalife
for more great reusable products!
Without an awareness of our own feelings we cannot feel compassion... how can we experience the suffering and joy of others if we cannot experience our own... if you wish to bring love and compassion into the world, you must be more loving and compassionate... #compassion #love #selflove #consciousliving
Maybe you have learnt your emotion is too much for people. Do you feel like you are carrying a weight no one is able to bear for you?
Do you often feel overwhelmed when pain strikes? or maybe you are the last one at the party because you are vibing off everyone else and it just feels SOO good?!
Being an empath is like living on the edge, you are the barometers of everything. You have been driven to the extremes in feeling a situation. You have probably suffered a lot, but others won’t see it that way, perhaps not understanding. What is an easy situation for everyone else may be a struggle for you.
And that’s ok.
I want to tell you, being who you are is ok. You are cherished.
You are different and that’s ok.
Being ‘weird’ is interesting, exciting, liberating for us all.
We need YOU.
I want you to know it is safe for you to feel all that you are.
You don’t need to hide your feelings, your feelings are not too much, or unpleasant. You have a gift of exposing the truth and even though others may not want to see it, your showing of emotion is revealing.
By being authentic you will help others heal, you will bring warmth and connection to the world. You will show people the agony and ecstasy of human experience.
Think of all the artists, musicians, poets, philosophers who may never have graced us with their beautiful expressions if they had tempered their spirit.
The challenge for you is to grow into yourself, to accept all that you are and glorify it. When I think of all those potentially wonderful characters that could ‘come out’ of the empath closet, what colour, vibrance and eccentricity would explode!

Wearing my @kowtowclothing
who scored an A in the @baptistworldaid
2018 Ethical Fashion Report. Ranked next to fast fashion brands who landed so high thanks to their good policies on paper, the beauty of Kowtow is they’re actually a legit ethical brand all round. Fair trade + organic certified cotton with organic dyes, made in accredited Indian factories that guarantee above average employee benefits.
If you’re so inclined you can read my rundown of the Ethical Fashion Report (linked in my bio) and see what other brands received an A, who totally flunked (Uniqlo, Bardot, Tigerlily, etc) and my other tips for people that are pissed by their favourite brand’s score and now want to quit their fast fashion habit. 💸
‘A book is a gift you can open again and again.’
I’m in love with this quote as it’s just so very true! I love gifting books as I know the’ll have longevity and they’re something that will be enjoyed again and again and won’t necessarily clutter a home with more ‘stuff’ (aka crap).
I know so many people with ‘stuff’ overwhelm (me included) hence why minimalism living is having such a strong movement.
It all starts with being conscious of what we bring into our home and great quality books are something to be cherished and have an important place in every household.
If you’re looking to build your book collection and you’d like to get a happy surprise in the mail @bookieboobox
is offering @petitbookcorner
readers 30% off to new subscribers on your first book box when you sign up for a month to month subscription. Use code PETITBOOKCORNER and voila!
How do you cope with stuff overwhelm? Are you careful about what you bring into your home or do you feel it’s tricky to monitor and control?

Ladies 👋🏻 Period time might be a time you don’t consider your plastic use but if you think about it all that wrapping on pads and tampons surely does add up. However, luckily we have oodles of other options available to us - I bought these @hannahpad_australia
super ultra pads especially for use postnatally but they’re also great for nighttime. Don’t want a pad? What about a menstrual cup or even the absorbable undies around? If you’re new to exploring your options I’d suggest stopping by @nourishedlife
as they stock a great range and have lots of reviews to help guide your choice. Reusables don’t just save you plastic, they save you cashola too - and I think that’s something almost all of us can be grateful for. So get on it. PS. Time to get over the ick factor (if you have one) it’s just blood; your blood. Deal with it 💁🏻♀️ #takethatplastic #plasticfreejuly #plasticfreewithshp
Look at this place. Isn't it paradise!?! And it is right on my doorstep here in #chesterfield
This week on the blog we are guiding you around some of the people, orgs and places we love. We are introducing you to @mamalinauk
and her morning routine/slow days play list (a firm favourite in our house). We are talking about #slowjournalism
and, in particular the wonderful @dg_quarterly
which we also LOVE (a very good 'read on the loo' publication 😉). Lastly, we are looking into Transition Towns and focussing in on what this network is doing right here in Chesterfield at @monkeyparkcic
A jam packed week - go check it out. Link in bio.
Tomorrow I head into an immersive 48 hours of journey work with one of my grestest mentors. I'm excited. Im also already feeling messy and scared sh*tless to be honest!
Self-improvement doesn't happen overnight; its an ongoing process that requires vulnerability, putting yourself out there and leaning into the discomfort. A commitment to living courageously.
Whatever your jam, may you find a practice and path that helps you let go at the deepest levels.
See you the other side🤞🙏
Rebel Cleanse 🖤 .. the first of the 4 Rebel Rituals .. because out with the old and in with the new .. Whatever is making you feel shit, get rid of it.

Intuition doesn't make sense...that's why it takes courage to follow >>>
This is just one nugget I took last night from @rebeccathoughts.
I totally feel the fear of actually following my intuition "you want me to do what?!" But courage isn't possible without fear, so I've caught myself today in moments of turning away to remind myself...
I AM BEING BRAVE AF!! And that feels so much fucking better than fear. Taking a gamble on intuition. NOT doing what everyone else is doing. Saying YES to that bizarre idea. Or following what appears to be completely insane but FEELS exciting - THAT is living. That is where tingles, butterflies, and sudden urges to shimmy, shake and scream come from. And it feels good.
How are you being brave in your life right now electric one?
Watch my IGTV for more on last night's event!
A Happy Day 😊 can start with a Happy Breakfast😊! A Happy Mood can change all your day, all your week and..... What is your Happy Start? ☀️💞
Let the most supported version of yourself lead.
Let her lead the conversation,
lead the intention,
lead the revelation
and lead the answer to that question. She’s not found in the answer, but instead she’s the way to the one you didn’t even know you needed.
She’s the drop of expectation and the smile of surprise,
the one you’ll find when you first decide to rise.
She’s got so much to show you, if you’d just let her lead. •

EN/RU 🔸 We all need reminders!
You could be very smart, you could read 1000 of books, you could know answers to many questions, but sometimes it happens, that you get lost..
And that’s the moment, when you need a reminder! And that’s why people are wearing cross or having icons. They remind us, why are we here!
Some situations are more complicated, and then you need someone to help you see the things from different angle. And in one moment you can be a wise one, the other day you’ll need a reminder yourself.
What can I say? Surround yourself with conscious and positive people. That’s one of the best investments in your life!
Нам всем нужны напоминания!
Ты можешь быть очень умным, прочитать 1000 книжек, знать ответы на многие вопросы, но порой случается, что ты все равно теряешься..
И это те моменты, когда нужны напоминания. Поэтому люди носят крестики и имеют с собой иконы. Они напоминают нам, почему мы здесь!
Некоторые ситуации более сложные, тогда нужен кто-то, кто помог бы посмотреть на все под иным углом. И ровно как в какой-то момент ты можешь быть мудрецом, в другой ситуации помощь понадобится тебе самому.
Что я могу сказать? Окружайте себя осознанными и позитивными людьми. Это лучшее вложение в свою жизнь!

If you didn't already know, plastic is suffocating our planet!
Making changes to your routines aren't always easy but they are now necessary. Supply like this is a result of demand so start using reusable bags today!
as we aim to educate, inform and provide alternatives for a greener tomorrow!
Are you neglecting yourself by saying “there’s not enough time” or “let me first finish this“? Do you feel you always have to be productive by checking off tasks in your to-do-list or being constantly busy?
Self-care is a very important basic need and we tend to forget it. Fit self-care in your everyday routine by creating rituals and making space for them in your daily planner.
Meditate, take a long shower, do some exercise, enjoy a healthy lunch, take a walk, read a book or listen to some music. Create time for the moments that make you feel good!
What are your self-care activities?

“Don’t aspire to make a living, aspire to make a difference.” Beautiful words from the legend. Live through your heart and always be true to who you are, this way it’s inevitable that you will make a difference. The small things always count. •

It’s on us to... understand that our actions have consequences, that what, how and where we buy matters. That each time we buy something we make someone else’s life a little better or a little worse. Words and photo by: @dariadaria
What are the things that E x p a n d you, energise you & excite you?
Make a list and start to put these things as a priority in your day, week, month & year.
For me it’s yoga, teaching, surfing, travel adventures, learning, spending time with like minded, good clean food, my family and that’s just a few.
Now let’s make it happen 🙌🏻 #axisyoga #mindfulliving #consciousliving

sooo after laying a little lower for quite sometime it's exciting to be resurfacing again with my creations 🙌🏻
I've been a busy little bee which some of you may know, finalizing and successfully launching my skincare range that I've been working towards and dreaming of for over 6 years now.
I am so grateful for all the support I've had from my amazing family (my mama has been incredible!!), friends and customers and some people in particular that have really stepped up and made me feel more at ease with it all 😉@hitthejspot @felicity.meikle @loztown
I've worked my butt off for this, on all levels, so to see it out in the big world now and people enjoying it brings me so much happiness.
this is 'one' of my passion projects to contribute to the world showing that we can live without torturing and killing defenseless animals, and disrespecting our environment, and still have beautiful products and all live a wonderful life in peace .
feel free to check out my website and insta page 🙏🏻 @ilaandava
may all beings be happy xx ✌🏻
Continuing what began in 2011 and now nationally certified. Being able to be present during a families journey is an honor! There is a picture that has been painted about death and all that surrounds it. Getting to know patients and families during this season of life has been life changing. Our fears can be great lessons if we allow it! I used to be under the illusion that we work where the money is best. That old, outdated paradigm that you must work at a soul sucking job where someone else tells you what you’re worth is over! Do what you love everyday! You do a disservice to yourself and the world by anything less! May we all move from our hearts and not waste another day doing, working, or staying somewhere that doesn’t make your heart sing!

the mirror of the sun,
so you can see the stunning
reflections of everything
Take a moment to check in
How are you feeling right now?
Be aware of any emotions or feelings
Breathe into them, feel them and give them space
Allow them to come... and go
Effortlessly in their own time
Without needing to force, resist or avoid them
Just as the morning light sweeps away the dark
Emotions come and emotions go
Always changing, transforming and shifting.
#meditation #emotions #comingsoon
Keeping an eye on the point ♡
