Feet in the sand, ocean air in my lungs, wind in my hair, a magical horizon in sight full of dreams and infinite possibilities.

I’ve spent so much time this past year at the beach on photo shoots for my blog. Each time I find myself entering a meditative state as I dreamily gaze out to sea. I feel earthed and connected with my bare feet on the sand, the water ever so gently washing over me reminding me that I am at the edge of land and sea. The horizon so endless, boundless, infinite, awakening dreams, igniting passion, soothing my soul. The wind so refreshing and enlivening at times, and then so soft and gentle as it caresses my skin. With each breath I am filled with vitality and renewed. My heart expands in this space that can only be called magical. It’s my nirvana, my enlightenment. My holy place. Where I slip into the gap between thoughts.


This beautiful afternoon I wore some of my favourite mermaid treasures from Penny for your Thoughts Jewellery. Paired with my Soleil Blue top and Myee Carlyle kimono, I felt like a reflection of the turquoise sea. Each of these amazing designers ignites my love of the ocean with their inspiring creations. You only have to check out their instagrams to see what I’m talking about. Always such beautiful captivating imagery that will evoke mermaid dreams of tropical islands and an ocean oasis.


AND today I get to share a little of my mermaid bliss with you guys!!!! YAY!!!!! I’ve paired up with the inspirational Soleil Blue, and we are giving away one of these Julia tube tops that I’m wearing in this post. It’s the perfect addition to your mermaid wardrobe. I love it paired with just about anything….from denim cut offs, a flowing maxi skirt, harem pants or with some awesome denim baggies. Such a cute top!
