You know those moments in life when you’re totally, completely, utterly in it? The whole of your world is still, and light, and you’re soaking up the right now in its fullest beauty? That was me two mornings ago, sitting cross-legged on the train station pavement, basking in warm, early-morning Queensland ‘winter’ sunshine, with Clair de Lune pounding through my headphones.
Cassie Mendoza-Jones is a tour de force of wellness - of entrepreneurship - and of harmony. I connected with this divine spirit a couple of Sydney trips ago, and we shared a delicious lunch and wholesome conversation in a cosy nook in the heart of Darlinghurst. On that day, there was an electric energy in the air - which, at the time, I couldn't place. "There's just something about this girl," I thought afterwards - "she's about to do something BIG". Little did I know that those stars were most certainly aligning, because on that very same day, Cassie was offered a book deal with Hay House.
She is a mastermind, in the loveliest of ways. And Cassie has just released a stunning project/dream of her own out into the world - The Heartfelt Harmony Society. As soon as I stepped inside those digital doors of the Society, I felt like had stepped into Narnia - a place of wonderment and beauty, where everything is possible. Equally, I felt like I had returned home. Right back to my soul.
Offering a range of life-changing online courses, classes and resources, The Heartfelt Harmony Society shows us how to love our bodies with ease, wake up energised and put ourselves first. You’ll find inspiring + actionable tools to help you practice wellness on every level: emotionally, physically and spiritually. The Heartfelt Harmony Society is teaching me more than how to nourish deeply during my journey of entrepreneurship and chasing big dreams… it teaches me how to thrive.
But enough from me. It's time you meet this week's rainbow chaser. Welcome, Cassie.
So. You know about Bright-Eyed + Blog-Hearted, right? Yes? Good. No? Well, read on. Because this ecourse has changed my life.I'm serious.
The day I signed up to this course, the world tilted in the direction of my dreams - hardcore.
This week I introduce you to a rainbow chaser who literally does just that; in the industry as a full time travel blogger. Like many of the incredible people I stumble upon online, Jessica and I first connected via Instagram. While I can't be sure whether I saw her photos from Paris or Jordan, I can assure you that every photo she takes ignites a serious case of wanderlust in me.
Read on, to meet Jessica and hear more of her inspiring story. Be warned: this post will make you want to travel.
Claude Monet famously said “I must have flowers, always and always,” - and he was obviously onto something. Flowers say what words cannot. They tell joy, love, sympathy, stories. Flowers make days.
Looking for some beautiful flowers to gift? (even if it’s for YOU - I won’t tell.) In no particular order, here’s your go-to list of 10 great florists and floral artists in Adelaide, ranging from established florists of distinction, to hill-dwelling garden growers, and flower fanciers who sell their creations at local markets.
They are all beautiful options to call upon for different reasons and occasions - and they are all in the business of flowers for the sheer love of their craft.
Rin Dawson is a lady changing the world. I know this, because she’s already changed mine.
It started via Instagram, circa March 2014. Little online hellos, here and there. I was living in London at the time. Then, the first letter arrived. Tangible. My letter was the most beautiful mail I ever did see, waiting at my doorstep when I arrived home from a long commute. Heart - warmed. It stayed in my bag, journeying around London with me all month. I just needed to look at it and I'd smile. Who is this incredible force of kindness? I mused. A rare diamond in this world, that's what. And then, there was the day a shoebox full of confetti, Australian chocolate, watercolours and Vegemite arrived, with hand-cut letters YOU ARE LOVED on the week in my life where everything fell apart, and I needed love most. I laughed, I cried, mostly, I was stunned. The earth tilted on its axis at that moment; in the direction of kindness.
Rin is precious. She is gentle, humble and like no one else I've ever met before. Read on, to meet her. You'll love the way she sees the world.
