Festival fever

The music’s pumping, the air is thick with dust, glitter and patchouli, happy sounds from happy souls surround.

Ahhhh I really do miss the festival days. Things have definitely changed a lot since I’ve had children, and it’s been awhile since I’ve seen my fair share of festival action. But I do see myself getting back there, perhaps a little differently than before…..back to that space where your inhibitions melt away, and it’s so easy to tap into that beautiful feeling of interconnectedness of all beings. The perfect fuse of style, music and art and bountiful expression creates the most contagious, rippling vibes of joy.

This festival inspired outfit was loads of fun to create. And so much fun to wear. Even though it was just me and my camera, I had a blast dreaming up all the places I would wear this to.

Sometimes life slows us down, whether it’s motherhood, illness or something else. Embrace the change, embrace the slow pace, there is so much beauty and healing in this phase of life. Keep on dreaming and know it won’t be that long before you too will be back on that stage dancing up a storm, or whatever it is your heart desires. And for now, have some fun playing dress ups, share your creativity, be brave and bold and dance like nobody’s watching.


With love and gratitude,
