“No, we don’t need more sleep. It’s our souls that are tired, not our bodies. We need nature. We need magic. We need adventure. We need freedom. We need truth. We need stillness. We don’t need more sleep, we need to wake up and live.” - Brooke Hampton

Keďže je ešte stále zatvorená naša obľúbená kaviareň Bar Italia tak som sa dnes vybral s @chilli_from_tuscany
do priľahlej malinkej dedinky Montefiridolfi. Tam som si pripomenul aký nádherný je jednoduchý život keď ma vítali domáce babičky a pán predavač v útulnej predajni kde vám spravia neskutočne dobrú kávu, sandwich na želanie, umyjú vybrané paradajky z regála a vy sa idete potom poprechádzať so psíkom po Toskánskych kopcoch ❤️

"La consommation de l'espresso est une expérience esthétique, comme déguster un vin de grand cru ou admirer un tableau." A very nice statement by Andrea Illy in Paris coffee revolution.
A favorite soft read on my bedside table. #thegoodreads
I feel like it has been friday for the last 3 days, celebrating birthdays and having dinner with friends. That is the beauty of being freelance. Sometimes it is weekend during the week and work on a sunday. Today I am putting in a few hours in front of the computer and maybe some house cleaning. #fridayfeelings #thesimplelife #theperfectsimple #septemberedithome
this pic was taken halfway through the photoshoot for my necklace range. I was taking a moment to tweak a piece on the go so that it would sit just so, and was snapped in the moment.
it’s one of my favourite photos because i like to think that it captures my care and passion for each and every piece of jewellery i make. and I like to think that the care can be felt, from the joy of unpacking, to the moment you wear it, and beyond, because it’s me, these hard working hands, behind each and every order.

They take me to the edge, my two beauties! 😅🌈💫
This week the boys got into old tiles we had set aside and had broken quite a few. Instead of screaming at them as I desperately wanted to do, I calmly told them to help mama clean it up. They had also broken a plastic bin into tiny little plastic pieces.😫The fun in cleaning and teaching them that we don't destroy things! It seems to be constant theme in this house. They stayed inside the rest of the evening which they did not like. I'm guessing my time building the house and baking sweets got them into so much mischief🤔making their own renovation projects. 😂They are quite a pair!✨...never a dull or quiet moment in my house.😬😳🙉
Aaah my girl, you have no idea how excited these two boys are about your arrival. Enjoy all the kisses and cuddles ❤️
Excuse my son’s cheek, he had a minor disagreement with an Aloe 🌵
I remember it like it was yesterday, the pain, the devastation. I remember feeling so broken, alone and ashamed. I remember crying, a lot of crying, when I didn’t know what to do with myself. I was so disgusted with my body, with myself. I would list off all the ways I was inferior to others, getting more depressed with each thought.
All of these feelings came rushing back to me today, as I’ve talked with three beautiful women in the last few hours who are in that place. It breaks my heart. I know that place.💔
I’m not going to tell you there’s a quick fix, some perfect remedy that will just magically change it all. It isn’t quick and it isn’t easy. It takes dedication and hard work. But what have you got to lose?
I decided something HAD to change. I had to change. I took one step, then another, and another. I am still taking one step at a time, and each day is better than the day before.
So to you my friend, who is in that place, REACH OUT! To your best friend, to your mom, to me. Reach out to someone and start taking steps towards healing, happiness, confidence. It’s possible, and YOU ARE WORTHY OF IT!!!!💗 I’m here for you friend, praying for you!😘
Anyone else loving this bandana scarf trend?!🙋🏼♀️ @phoebefarnz

This.... this is what it's all about.😭
It's moments like these that reassure me that I indeed made the right decision to live the simple life this summer.👧🏻👧🏻🌲
This is just the beginning and I already feel more grounded and connected to everything. Especially these two.💗
Downsizing to a trailer, no service, random wifi connections = an eye opening powerful change. Grateful for this and the ability to still work and pursue my dream.🌻

LOGO design, coming to my website really soon. If you're after a beautiful, bespoke, one of a kind logo at an even better price pre made logos are a great option. 🌈
Otavalo was our fist encounter with Ecuador, and it is so different than what we’ve seen in Colombia! We spend the day at the famous saturday market but with watching the beautiful style and clothes of the indigenous people rather than chasing bargains! (Although we have to admit we couldn't resist all the beautiful things at the market....we tell you about it soon ;-)!)
Have you seen the bin of fabric scraps in our shop? We utilize every last bit of leftover fabric to create our clothes pins, hair pins & rag ropes like these. These 3 rag ropes were created today in store by our creative team member, @andriahigginsdesigns.
Each measures 5.5’ long and priced at $5.50 each. So cute & minimizing waste in our tiny island’s landfills! #winwin

“Children are born with a sense of wonder and an affinity for Nature. Properly cultivated, these values can mature into ecological literacy, and eventually into sustainable patterns of living." -Zenobia Barlow, “Confluence of Streams”
Take the time to connect to Nature. Sit quietly, without distraction, and allow Nature to entertain you. The ripples of the water in the lake, the leaves dancing in the wind, the chipmunks scurrying by looking for treats, the rabbits munching on some greens, the ducks diving for food, and the sound of silence that lets you focus and be mindful of these amazing things. There are so many beautiful lessons and so much learning that can happen in nature, all you have to do is just give it a chance to teach you 💚✌️

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve did a book haul or a thrift haul. So here goes. I was at the thrift and I saw Thoreau’s Walden. The aesthetic of the book was just so pretty. I started thumbing through the pages. Now I remember this book from high school. But I feel like in high school you have a long list of old literature to read and you don’t get to fully enjoy it you’re just checking off a checklist. And I think this book in particular is more to be understood and enjoyed as an adult. Because it’s about a guy who takes a two year vacation from his busy over scheduled life to just chill in the woods. His life is simplistic and tranquil. He gets to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and make brilliant observations. His family and friends come to visit worried he’ll be lonely but he shrewdly points out you can be lonely in a room full of people and content by yourself. He said more eloquently and deep. But it’s a beautiful book. #bookhaul #thrifthaul #books #bibliophile #thoreau #walden #thesimplelife #literature #woods #nature
