summer lovin', happened so fast ☀️💕 and just like that, summer is over. i’m so happy i managed to squeeze in a sunny getaway with rob ~ california was an absolute dream! • i know it’s quite a cliché to post a swimwear picture with a caption about confidence, but i guess it’s a cliché for a reason... i’ve never been fully confident or comfortable with my appearance, and whilst i am aware of my privilege having a body type that society considers ‘ideal’, the insecurities i have still very much exist and are valid ☁️ it’s rare that i feel like a total babe, but i did in those moments splashing around on the beach with rob & in these photos. i hope i feel like that carefree again soon... 🌊💕

“Autumn is here, cover my heart with anything you’d like with the shadow of a tree, or better, with the shadow of thee[...]” Some verses of beautiful poem “ Autumn emotion “ , by Nichita Stanescu ,to celebrate the change of the season...

At the end of last year I was listening to a podcast about endocrine disrupting chemicals and decided that it was time I took a good look at the products I was using in my home. It has taken me about 9 or so months but I am finally really happy with how much of our home has been switched out to low tox products. I stumbled across this book by @lowtoxlife earlier this year and have recently stumbled upon a podcast by the author Alexx Stuart and am loving what I have heard so far! If you’re looking for something new to listen to go check it out! There are so many wonderful episodes to choose from! #naturalliving   #knowbetterdobetter   #healthyhabits  

Let me introduce you to the beautiful work of @benfentonartist. I’m very proud to have his paintings in the shop as part of our @coastalcurrentsfestival exhibition. Ben speaks passionately about the relationship between art, nature and mental health. “I come from Dungeness, the only desert in the UK. A place where the land is as flat as the sea and both are pressed down upon by the weight of a leadened sky. A place where life and living is dictated by the elements and there is nowhere to shelter from its extremes. “I suffer from mental illness, and I believe the parallels are impossible to ignore. My life has been battered and roughly hewn into the shape it is in by the unrelenting and corrosive tide of depression and anxiety. It has gradually stripped away my worth and desire like the shingled coastline of my home. “Painting is what keeps me going, and it is what brings both together - my illness and the vistas that mirror it. When I am stood before a canvas, stained in oil paint and fizzing with purpose, it is the only time that my hound, my wretched black dog, quietens down. I am, whilst in my studio, for as long as I work, master of my erratic existence. I am in charge of creating and manipulating the images of the lands I grew up in, and still inhabit, that reflect the illness that wants to cut my life short.” If you would like to find out more or purchase Ben’s work please message me and I will happily send you details and photos of the different landscapes that I have in the exhibition.

I don’t really enjoy going shopping. I am not a clothes shopper, I don’t enjoy grocery shopping unless it’s in French supermarkets and I do places like Ikea or department stores if I really have to. I do like small businesses and craft shops and unique places that aren’t mass chain stores. However I DO have a weakness for buying plants and cacti and succulents are a real thing for me. I currently have 9 cacti and 4 succulents. I managed to NOT add another to my collection this weekend nospendseptember wins but I was tempted. Anyone else like me have quirky shopping tastes? 🌵

Good morning friends, it's Monday again! I was reading a post from @sophiecarefull the other day where she shared how she uses Instagram so that she doesn't get overwhelmed and let it run her, instead of the other way around. And it got me thinking about how I'm constantly tweaking how I show up here. So I thought I'd share a little bit of what's working for me at the moment. I love reading the captions on grid posts - as well as enjoying the photos - so I always scroll back to where I last left off and work my way back up giving every post the attention I believe it deserves. I always 'like' every post in the main feed, as acknowledgement that I've seen and read it, and if it particularly resonates or there's a conversation I want to join in, then I'll comment too. If I find myself not wanting to 'like' posts then I'll check in with that account and decide if it's one that I can kindly and gratefully unfollow. I've done quite a bit of this lately, so my follow list has reduced quite a bit, but it means the posts I see are from people I'm really interested in hearing from - and I never miss any of them. I also keep an eye on new people following me, and if they're obviously spam accounts I instantly block them, or if it looks like they never engage with me then I'll remove them (I think it was @rockrosedigital who shared this tip) I have an on-off relationship with Stories, and I've now started giving myself permission to mute them from some accounts if I'm not interested in what they share (even if I still love their main grid posts), or to skip through. However, I've also found myself engaging with more people through replying to stories, polls, and questions, and have had some wonderful conversations in DMs. Basically, these are more guidelines than rules, but as I've made themself, it's also my prerogative to break or bend them as I see fit! Also - just to make this clear, I'm purely sharing this as my personal experience, and in no way as advice or anything I think you 'should' do - and I'm always fascinated by the different ways people make IG work for them, so if you'd like to share, I'd love to hear!

Summer will always have a special place in my heart. But I do adore loading on the knitwear, with lashings of camel, a hot chocolate in chilly hands and cuddling up in vintage coats 🍁🍂✨ . ⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀ . #becauseofreading   #bibliophile   #bookaddict   #bookcommunity   #readingismagic   #welovebooks   #littlebookworm   #epicreads   #bookwormsunite   #findingthejoyineveryday   #documentyourdays   #myhappyviews   #thisdelightfullife   #discoverunder1k   #discoverunder5k   #seekmoments   #inpraiseofslowness   #happyselves   #alifeofintention   #seekwondercollect   #dearhopefulcreative   #littlestoriesofmylife   #thatsdarling   #mydarlingmoments   #creativelifehappylife   #dearhopefulcreative   #nothingisordinary   #womenwriters   ipreview via @preview.app

The “wedding hangover” combined with jet lag has me feeling 😴😴😴 at all the wrong times. See you soon, 3am - bright eyed and bushy tailed 🤦🏻‍♀️ Any advice for getting back on track with a sleep schedule? My sleepy time podcast @nothingmuchhappenspodcast usually has me covered, but not with such a messed internal clock. She’s so confused!

I was laying in bed one night ~ day dreaming about my sisters family photos and hoped I’d be able to get this shot at @matsumotoshaveice 😂 Families that eat shaved ice together, stay together. ✌🏻(P.s. I did get photos of their faces too. P.p.s my sister was born here.

Self-deprecating thoughts playing on auto loop in your brain? Been to a thousand therapists, talked to a million specialists, and written out a billion positive affirmations… only to continue to find the same shit distorting your thoughts? So many clients come to me asking for help with this exact same experience. Feeling defeated. Disconnected from their soul. And not confident. Here are some “thinking errors” you might be experiencing (also defined in the psychology world as “cognitive distortions”). Black and white thinking: “If my child does bad things, it’s because I’m a bad parent.” Catastrophizing: “If I fail this exam, I will die.” Labelling: “I’m a loser” It’s not your fault that these negative thoughts keep re-occurring despite all efforts to be more positive. In fact, your brain is programmed to keep these playing on repeat. HOWEVER, WE CAN REWIRE YOUR BRAIN. Imma bout to give you some tips on how: 1. Write down the troubling automatic thought 2. Make two lists, “supporting evidence”& “disproving evidence” for automatic thought 3. Write out more helpful alternative thoughts & post them somewhere you will see them often. Obviously, this is is just one exercise & not the total solution. Rewiring your brain takes accountability, time, consistency, and practice. Send me a DM to talk more about how to quit negative self-talk. #spiritualbosslady   #abundantbossbabes   #startupmindset   #positivemindset   #schoolofgreatness   #igniteyourfire   #millionairemindset   #lawofattraction   #wordsmatter   #lifesayings   #powerofnow   #thismoment   #raiseyourvibration   #livethelittlethings   #goalminded   #practicemindfulness   #intentionallife   #wholeheartedliving   #lessismore   #minfdulmoment   #mindfulnessmatters   #slowliving   #theartofslowliving   #embracingaslowerlife   #presentmoment   #bestillandknow   #alifeofintention

hi. I’m returning from New Mexico tomorrow and feeling totally inspired by this incredible desert landscape. this image seems to fit the mood. Toluwa wears t-shirt 4 and pant 1 in tea organic linen + tool belt 1 in cinder canvas.

This weekend at church was a baptism weekend & it had me thinking back to my own experience with baptism. In middle school, my sister & I were baptized but really without understanding of what it meant. So when I had the opportunity to get baptized in college & actually understood what it meant, I said yes. That day passed in a blur. But it changed my life. Choosing Jesus has led me to multiple mission trips & the World Race & CGA, all of which have drastically changed my life. Choosing Jesus has been the best decision I have ever made. Choosing Jesus changed my life. Choosing Jesus gave me life. Swipe for some of my faves from that day eight & a half years ago.

Inspiration everywhere ... This brick 😍

My magical pink drink does a lot of things...but it does not keep you from leaving one of your kids at church. We got all the way home and I went upstairs to pump and immediately got a call from my daughter who said “did ya’ll leave me?” 🤦🏻‍♀️ Ummm Yup if you are still at church! Guess that’s cause John thought I had her and I thought he had her. Oops 😬 Thanks pink drink for balancing my blood sugar and insulin, helping me kick my sugar addiction, helping me balance my hormones, and sleep like a baby, but next time can you help me remember ALL my kids 😂 . . . #alexajeanpresets   #honestlymothering   #grateful   #letthembelittle   #motherhooduncut   #supplementingisimportant   #joyfulmama   #lifelivedbeautifully   #babylove   #journeyoffaith   #createyourlifestyle   #Itsthelittlethings   #momofmany   #boymom   #girlmom   #largefamily   #alifeofintention   #motherhooduncut   #holdthemoments   #mommasprayers   #largefamilylogisticsbust   #largefamilylife

I will say, seeing tree ferns amongst redwoods gives my heart a special kind of happiness. I and these redwoods are the same: transplants thriving here in our new home.

I’m hoping to do a very off-season road trip sometime reasonably soon. I’m not big on crowds so walking the redwoods with folks taking business phone calls is not my cuppa tea. Plus, then I’ll get to take photos with the SLR.

Ever felt overwhelmed while decluttering?🙋🏼‍♀️ Then READ ON!..⠀ ⠀ Step 1: If you’re doing longer purges, take short breaks every 20-30 minutes.⠀ ⠀ Taking breaks will allow you to come back to the task and make better declutter decisions.💪🏼⠀ ⠀ Without breaks (and we’ve ALL done this) we tend to make sloppier choices and hang on to more than we should.🚫⠀ ⠀ Step 2: Get outside for your break!! Getting outside will help you feel in control, will allow an outward-directed focus, and lowers the stress hormone, cortisol.☀️ ⠀ ⠀ Step 3: IDENTIFY and turn those false beliefs and thoughts you keep telling yourself, into positive thoughts to help you LET THIS STUFF GO.🙌🏼⠀ ⠀ “This is too hard. I can’t do this. I’ll never get this done.”❌⠀ ⠀ Step 4: Visually ZOOM IN on one SMALL area at a time. One BIN, one BASKET, one CATEGORY. Less clutter in your visual field will INSTANTLY remove some overwhelm.⠀ ⠀ So, what are you going to be decluttering, this week?! Let me know!👇🏼

It’s a little strange seeing my beloved California Redwoods here in Aotearoa, but if California catches fire forever at least I’ve got a little pocket of home here.

I’ve never felt more me. I don’t know how to describe it, but entrepreneurship has been my dream of mine since I can remember. Maybe I didn’t know it by name as a little girl with pigtails, but I can remember feeling it.⁠ ⁠ I must say I am SO lucky that my business allows me to be home and spend time with my seven-year-old son. That I can take walks in the middle of the day and that I can connect with so many people with a click of a button.⁠ ⁠ I think NOW is the time for all the passionate, spontaneous, adventurous, spiritual woman that we are to shine and never to doubt our potential.⁠ ⁠ #BusinessWomensDay⁠ .⁠ ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠   #webtips⁠   #websiteinfo⁠   #sayyestosuccess⁠   #designisinthedetails⁠   #bestofdesign⁠   #minimalwebsitedesign⁠   #modernwebsitedesign⁠   #galtribe⁠   #sayyestosuccess⁠   #everydaymadewell⁠   #theinstagramlab⁠   #theeverydaygirl⁠   #sweetdreamsdlf⁠   #wixexpert⁠   #explorecreateshare⁠   #alifeofintention⁠   #wixpartner⁠   #visualcrush⁠   #justaddsole⁠ ⁠   #bizcoach⁠   #intentionalbusiness⁠   #collectivehub⁠   #hustlewithease⁠   #dreambigorgohome⁠   #herbusiness⁠   #findyourflock⁠   #dreamersanddoers⁠   #designalifeyoulove⁠   #bossbabesociete  

this luxurious blend of rose, tea tree, & ylang ylang comes with me everywhere. ive already used it today on my new & old tattoos, my lips, under my eyes, and wolfs dry skin! it can also be used for diaper rash, as nipple balm for breastfeeding mamas, on cuticles, to lock in essential oils, on cuts, scrapes, burns. its basically the ultimate moisturizer. did i mention how good it smells?

Hi friends!! Can you believe summer is officially over?! ——— Finally it feels like home in our apartment!! Now I am just patiently awaiting for the crisp autumn air to grace me with its presence.

Confession: I can’t sew. Or knit. Or crochet. In fact my talent to make anything from scratch, or mend something when it needs alternation or repair, is pretty darn, well, missing. Somehow it skipped me as a child and it makes my heart ache every time I think of it. I don’t truthfully understand why, but it’s there. An actual feeling in my chest. Thing is, I feel an urgency to make sure they don’t go down with my ship. I want to learn them all. The granny skills, the self sufficiency. Call it whimsical and privileged, in some ways it is both. But it comes from a deep rooted need to make a difference. It’s always been there. Always. Right now, more than ever before, it feels really important. For me, for my small humans and for their some day small humans too.⁣ ⁣ Pic shows a French market basket held together by t-shirt yarn to make it last a little longer. My mum fixed this for me.

Sunday Funday 🌤️ I hope you've all managed to take some time to rest, recuperate and enjoy your time before the start of the working week 💛 #cheerfullylive   #fiandfriends   #alifeofintention   #happyselves   #selfcare   #selflove   #positivelifestylecommunity   #GRLPWR   #wellbeingblogger   #travelblogger   #travelblog   #travelgram   #travelphoto   #travelbloggerlife   #wanderlust   #traveldiaries   #instatravel   #cityscape   #travelblogging  

I’m having a bit of a weird time right now. With things at work and stuff going on in my personal life. For the last few weeks, I’ve not really felt like I’ve had a handle on things or that I can get anything right. And it BLOWS. I was having drinks on Friday and unloading all my nonsense, and the person I was with looked at me and said, “you’ll be okay. I have a feeling you’re stronger than you think.” And it was so sincere and out of the blue, but exactly what I needed. Sometimes you need a near-stranger to reassure you of what you’ve always known ✨

I'm an early riser. Being up before the kids gives me the time to reflect on the previous day and what I want to accomplish. Many mornings I spend sipping my coffee and writing my next blog post or trying to perfectly capture a moment with my kids from the previous day. These mornings are important for my creativity and clarity! . When do you find the time to be creative?

I used to be that person if I woke up late & my day was altered, the first thing I cut off of my to do list was my workout. Who has time for 30 minutes? Turns out I have that time. And SO DO YOU. Thirty minutes is TWO PERCENT of your entire day. That’s it. Crush those thirty minutes and you will still have 1,410 other minutes in the day. I cut out the commute to & from the gym. I cut out the hour long classes. I cut out figuring out class times into my schedule. I added in community. I added in a Netflix of workouts. I added in flexibility to choose workouts & trainers that I love. I added in nutrition plans that complement these. Now I’m that girl who even if I wake up late, even if I have to alter the whole rest of my day, even if I have to skip out on a shower, I still press play. I press play on my workout because it keeps me sane It helps combat depression & anxiety it starts my day off well I’m less likely to get grumpy midday it feels good to sweat first thing I’m more likely to continue being active it has become a habit Two percent of your whole day. Sister, it’s worth it.

We arrived back home today and I am so happy to see my Degus and my Gerbils and plants again. 💛 The lat week first Christian and then I were really sick so there wasn’t much fun stuff to share. On our last day I finally found the strength for a little day trip to Morlaix and it was great.

B O H A N N O N,⁣ ⁣ Thank you to opening my eyes to where my being needs healing towards to the masculine.⁣ ⁣ I can get so focused on flowing with my feminine that I ignore the damage that has been afflicted on me from the men along my path. ⁣ ⁣ I appreciate the attention and awareness that I cannot walk through the rest of my life harboring resentment and unbalanced energies between masculine and feminine. ⁣ ⁣ You remind me that we are all worthy of love. ⁣ ⁣ That every day should have room for play and pure joy. ⁣ ⁣ I'm grateful for your snuggles. ⁣ ⁣ Your butt wiggles make me laugh. ⁣ ⁣ Thank you for opening our hearts so much further and giving us the opportunity to expand and to show up for you and the girls in a whole new way. ⁣ ⁣ Lovingly, mom.

This morning, I was mid yoga pose and slightly lost my balance (still learning, thankful it wasn't a total fail lol) and hurt my right wrist. Pain was getting progressively worse on the drive to get Emma. Thankfully, I had my oils on me from yesterday consult! Applied a drop, rubbed and applied some reiki to the area.

One whole year ago 💕 I didn't expect we'd be spending our first anniversary in hospital with Ted again, feeling sad that parenthood wasn't supposed to be like this. But we'll celebrate properly soon, as soon as Teddy is better!

Officially a mama to a one year old 🌱 Rumi had the sweetest birthday weekend with family and friends. @taniajoyfjane threw her a little party and @lizzie_jg baked her a cake... This little girl is so loved by so many and I am so so grateful for it. • #awakethelight   #makemoments   #holdthemoments   #seekmoments   #alifeofintention   #lightinspired   #posttheordinary   #ofsimplethings   #lifelivedbeautifully   #documentlife   #livebeautifully   #liveunscripted   #quietthechaos   #simplejoys   #momentslikethese   #thesweetlifeunscripted   #notonlymama   #thehonestlens   #childhoodunplugged   #themindfulapproach   #gritandvirtue   #thatvelvetfeeling   #momentsofmine   #livewildandfree   #wildandfreekids   #solovelysofree   #lovingtheordinarymoments  

I quit one of my day jobs after only two weeks. You see, working at a discount store wasn't a great fit. Our philosophies about running a value-driven business (+ living a meaningful life) were just too different.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ I struggled with the decision to quit. Can I even do this? Do I have to give it a chance? Shouldn't I be grateful to have a job at all? I *was* grateful, of course. But embracing my journey of ditching perfect means NOT prioritizing should's over what my intuition is telling me. It means NOT 'sticking it out' or 'giving it a chance' just to please others or fit into some sort of neatly-defined box.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ Ditching perfect means fully leaning into the fact that the only person I need to please, the only person who's expectations I want to live up to, is *me*. Let me know below, are you a people pleaser 🤷🏻‍♀️ or a self pleaser 🙋🏻‍♀️

@trueandco asked me to share my truebody story—I’m six+ months into a new workout routine. Some days are great, some not so great. But I’m happy to be able to move and groove in the body I have. #togetherwearetrue   #ad  

"Some people are so much sunshine to the square inch." - Walt Whitman. That's Alice. Bursting with joy and life. I'm not sure how two months slipped by, but they did! Here's a little glimpse into Alice's 7th birthday. Horses, books, friends, faces and Alice opening the present Milo bought for her with his own money: seven new colts. Love these little ones of ours! Thank you, Lord, for Alice and her bright, cheerful spirit and her servant heart. She is a gift.

Rainy morning 🌨, I LOVE the rain. It makes everything so much prettier!

WHY? . I write for my kids. About 13 years ago now, I read a sample of my writing to a friend of mine and she said, “You know Jessica - you have a gift, if you don’t write and share it with the world you are being selfish.” gottaloverealfriends! What she said gave me the courage to start writing and sharing, blogging and posting, speaking and encouraging. . I am no Hemingway, Twain, Yates, or William Wordsworth but I do write about what I know about and I do it for my kids. . One day I will be long gone, but at least with my online and backed up computer files my kids will hear their mom’s voice and learn about what she believed in. Today when I was posting about Micheal Jordan - unarguably the greatest basketball player/athlete of all time I thought to myself, “Would my kids even know about MJ if I didn’t write about him??” Scary thought! 😳 . Yes, I write for my kids - posts and love notes with them in mind to encourage them to think positive, speak clearly and love wholeheartedly. It’s the least I can do! .

Saturday sun ☀️ So far the final weekend of summer has brought afternoon drinks in the sun, two freshly scalped nappers and some final vacay purchases. Winning at weekends! 🥰🥂

Which statement is true for you? . ☕ Coffee makes me move or ☕ Coffee gives me some calm me-time in morning hustle?
