Loving the tribal vibes of this festival inspired outfit. Dripping in suede and fringe and cultural gems with a tonne of silver. This Lokoa poncho is just insanely soft and divine. I can’t get enough of it. It fits to perfection and I think it’s a definite must have wardrobe item for all those wild tribal boho goddesses out there. Throw in some flash tattoos and tribal jewels from the ever awesome Child of Wild and you’ve got yourself the look.
Feeling blessed that each day I have the chance to explore different styles and aspects of myself. This is my art. And I believe that as we dress each day we have the chance to create something magical, something enlivening, that represents the magnificence that we are.
Bare feet on the sand, wind in my hair, salt on my lips, dancing upon the edge of the ocean as the sun beams it’s glorious rays upon my skin. This is the magical setting that ignites my dreams and makes anything possible in my reality.
If you are feeling a little low and in need of a pick me up, find yourself some natural inspiration in your surrounds. Clarity and peace will come, and allow yourself the space and time to immerse yourself in it. Revel in the beauty that is all around you, and that is you. From this centred, nurturing space your passions and spirit will fire up. Now is the time to dream big and run wild along the earth as you plant the seeds of manifestation.
We are all powerful beyond measure. We all have the ability to create abundant and love filled lives for ourselves. Take some time to slow down, centre yourself, dream and acknowledge you are the creator of your life.
When it comes to fashion there is not much more that I love than exquisite jewellery….and especially when there is an amazing heart and soul behind the creations. I’m honoured today to share with you all a little about this amazing label I recently discovered – Ernest & Joe. Absolutely divine jewellery, simple, clean lines, incredible quality with great attention to detail, making them next level for me.
Behind the scenes of this label is beautiful mother and daughter duo, Sally and Mia, creating this magic together. The whole family is involved in this creative passion of theirs, and we are the lucky ones who get to have a piece of this art made with love. Here’s a little interview I did so you can find out more about this lovely duo.
How did Ernest and Joe begin?
E&J began after I came home from a big trip around South East Asia, Mum suggested that we do a short course in silver smithing together and from there we combined forces and created our little business. Ernest was my Pops (Mums Dad) middle name that he didn’t like, but I loved, and Joe was Nans Dads name, so masculine for such feminine jewellery!
What are your greatest passions in life?
We are very down to earth people and as long as we have our tight knit family around us we are happy. We are extremely devoted to E&J, we don’t get much time to do anything else…lucky we love it!
Who is/are your major style influences/inspirations?
We try to keep all of our ideas as original as possible, we don’t really go hunting for any inspiration, we just wait until an idea pops into our head and we work from there. We like the simplicity of our designs.. we probably like them a little too much, i am always pinching stock to keep for myself!
What do you love most about Ernest and Joe?
We love that Ernest and Joe is entirely hand made in my back shed. We love that our two employees are my Brother and Sister. We love that my little baby Violet scoots around in the shed under my dogs watchful eye. We love that we have created something that means so much to so many people. Most of all I love that I get to hang out with Mum every day making jokes and beautiful jewellery.
What are your future dreams?
We would like to keep building our little business up and be able to employ my Brother and Sister full time.
We are excited for E&J to become a recognisable name here in Australia and around the world.
We are pretty happy to keep taking the opportunities that come our way. We just want to make jewellery forever!!
I don’t know about you guys but I’m in love. These guys just peel it back to what matters most and their beautiful designs are a great representation of all that they are about.
Here’s to family, love, following your heart and doing what you love, each and every single day. Thanks for the inspiration Sally and Mia :)
I really do love a basic white shirt and denim look. It’s so fresh and crisp and easy to wear. A perfectly cut shirt is a great canvas to lay down some stunning jewels too :) I’ve been looking for what feels quite a long time for that perfect white shirt for me….I thought I’d have to spend a fortune to find it, but no. This Chicwish shirt is well within budget, and it wears beautifully. I love it half buttoned over a bralette with some denim cut offs. The flowing, long at the back, shape is also just perfect over some skinny jeans, layered with your favourite tailored jacket and boots. The cut and flow brings a beautiful feminine quality to generally a more masculine piece of clothing. It’s definitely become one of my wardrobe staples now, and I’m thinking I’ll need to get myself a second backup for those messy days haha!!
I’ve paired it with some edgy urban outfitters, embella and lava links jewellery. I was really drawn to the sharp, geometric lines and more masculine energy of these pieces. Love being able to explore all the different aspects of myself as I adventure through this styling journey of mine. Counting my blessings and grateful for all my readers’ support each and every day. Love you guys!
Silk, lace, silk, lace….pretty much all I want in my wardrobe…..well except for a lot of jewels! Beautiful, delicate, feminine, detailed, textured, simply divine. For an edgier boho look I love to layer with some leather and serious hardware.
This beautiful beach day I had the works! Lace, silk and some serious jewellery overload – chunky labradorite and crystal quartz, and some heavy tribal jewels.
As always loving Myee Carlyle’s latest creations. Their crystal necklaces are next level. The attention to detail and quality of the crystals and leather used can be seen and felt. The silk they use to create their beautiful designs is lovingly hand dyed with plant extracts, providing you with an amazing piece of consciously made clothing.
Nothing quite like the feel of silk on your skin and sparkling light from crystal jewels that instantly remind you of the goddess that you are.
That moment when the sun goes to sleep and the moon begins it’s rise…..that seems to linger on and holds that special kind of magic….where all dreams feel possible….those are the moments to count your blessings and make your wishes.
Every time I am lucky enough to witness the sun rise or set, I take a moment to give thanks, and to make a special wish. I figure if I’m lucky enough to be here, witnessing this glory, then I pretty much have all I need, then it’s time to wish for something amazing for all the beautiful souls of this earth. There is something so powerful about a prayer that comes from a place of fullness, of gratitude, of abundance. Next time you are lucky enough to witness nature’s beauty, take a moment to fill yourself with love, and then send that love out to all those who need it most. You will be overflowing with love and others will feel the blessing you have bestowed upon them.
This sunset really was extra special. There was that iridescent light again at the beach. The kind that seems to come right before each full moon. The sand glows and the water flashes it’s vibrant turquoise colour. I made lots of loving wishes on this day. And I’m sure all my beautiful Dogeared charms brought even more good luck vibes to my wishes.
Make a wish, or 2, or 100….take some time for ritual in your life, and share your love and light with the world. Every little bit of loving helps to heal our world.
“She usually loved the sun to reign, but today she enjoyed the surprise of rain”
I’m a summer loving girl. I love the heat and the beaming warmth of sun on my skin. And even though winter is a not my favourite, I still love the rain. Especially on those days when it’s not cold, and the light sprinkles of rain refresh you like a waterfall mist.
I spent an afternoon recently at the beautiful home of Losari Home and Woman and as we always do, had an absolute blast! I wore this stunning Chicwish crochet dress along with so many exquisite silver accessories from Dixi, Shayote and Minc Collections. I revelled in the rain mists and watched the rain shine and glimmer as it sparkled and illuminated everything it touched. I felt ever grateful for the chance to dance in the rain and all the precious gifts it brings to our earth.
Embrace the beauty in the everyday, it will bring magic to every moment of your life.
I’m so thrilled to present to you today my first collaborative design piece, co created with the divine Delice from LavaLinks. It’s an absolute honour working with such a beautiful soul and to be able to bring you guys something that is dear to our hearts. Hope you love :)
The gratitude elephant ring is made with love, gratitude, sterling silver, is slightly adjustable, and will fit a range of ring sizes. We hope that when you wear your elephant ring it will serve as a reminder to you of your own beauty and strength, and bring forth love and gratitude for the amazing person that you are.
With love and gratitude,
Taking preorders now for the Gratitude Elephant ring – LavaLinks

I’ve been asked quite a lot recently about finding peace and love, so I want to share just a little in this post that I feel may be of help to some of you.
Each day I wake up I consciously choose to focus my thoughts upon LOVE. I focus my attention on all that I love, all that is working in my life, all that brings me joy. The more attention I give to it, the more I create and amplify my experience of this in my life. When I catch myself headed down a path of stressful worrying thoughts, I stop. I look at the layers that hold them in place. I provide these painful thoughts with the loving space they deserve. I question their validity, I imagine how I’d feel without them. I discover a blissful state of peace and lightness without them. I wonder if they are in fact really true and I look deeper at their roots. I dig these up and plant new loving, peaceful seeds in their place. Ones that will blossom and bring forth the great fruits of life. I feel a lightness wash over me as I empty out those stressful thoughts that really don’t need to be on repeat anymore. When we run the same painful programs over and over in our minds, we only cause more suffering to ourselves. We can choose what we wish to believe, and what we wish to think and feel. It takes some practice firstly to become aware of these thoughts, to question them, and to realise that you yourself are the one who can set free your mind and allow peace and love to flow in.
Each day practice the art of forwarding your focus to all that is magical, magnificent, amazing and wonderful. Focus on what you have with love and with gratitude. I guarantee you, the more you do this, the better you will feel, and the more awesomeness you will naturally attract into your life through the universal law of attraction.
