This image kind of sums up how I’m feeling spiritually coming into this week...
Now I just need my physical body to catch the f* up!!
Anyone else have those times where emotionally and spiritually you feel like you’re ready to turn your face to the sun and shine, but at the same time I’m fighting off a cold and I’ve had some kind of weird reaction to a plant sting on my finger. 😣

Had one of those #MumLife nights where you get next to no sleep #SleptInTheKidsBed 😴😴 but have no idea why we were up and having panadol at midnight (random tummy ache? Sniffles? Sore? Who knows!) and then for some reason they still wake with energy to burn and meanwhile you’re propping your eyelids open with toothpicks and ordering a double shot #BecauseCoffeeIsLife ☕️ and yet I have this vague memory of being able to party all night and yet get up and do #AllTheThings ummm how?! 🤷♀️🤷♀️
But at least there is online shopping.... 😂😂 give me all the coffee and retail therapy today!! Who’s relating today?
The July birthstone, Ruby, is associated with prosperity and vitality. Well known as a stone for love and passion, particularly romantic love and sensuality. It promotes relationships and deepens connections. Ruby is a high energy stone, for courage and strength. This makes it a wonderful stone for those embarking on new adventures. ❤️
How do you practice mindfulness?
✨ a Friday reminder to stay present in the moment ✨
Truly one I struggle with sometimes... #ImaWorrier but something I am focusing on practicing.
Meditation beads and breathing exercises have helped me a lot. 📿 And one of my favourite mindfulness exercises is to sit with a crystal and become immersed in the light, structures and colours. 💎
Go for a mindful walk or spend your lunch outside taking in all around you today🚶♀️
Do you know I will happily add little crystal pendants like birthstones to your initial necklaces? Like the little rose quartz here to symbolise love and strengthen bonds 💗 I haven’t added these as an option on the site but I’m wondering if maybe I should 🤔
I’m going to be revisiting the fine jewellery available and may be saying goodbye to some of these pieces for good... but I’m having a bit of a love affair with them at the moment! 💔

I used to not like my birthstone but recently I’ve come to love it... especially here 😍 I haven’t released these pieces but they are available by custom request... I’m living for custom orders at the moment! 🙌 Seriously, my customers have been having me make the most stunning high vibe sparkly intention infused goodness ✨ DM me if you have special requests because I’m so grateful to get my creativity on! (Especially because my day job is still all numbers and corporate speak at the moment! 😴)
Kindness matters but it’s important to remember... that includes YOU!
You are deserving of empathy.
When you are struggling, do you speak to yourself with kindness and compassion? A good way to challenge this is to ask yourself “would I say this to a friend?”
Let’s be kinder to ourselves.
connecting with my feminine energies
awakening my goddess
she is powerful
connected with the moon
and the earth
she supports me
she is my truth
not the lies I tell myself
I am her
Which crystals do you carry with you??
Today I just have my always present Sodalite and Rose Quartz 💗
• Sodalite to help navigate emotions, understand and evaluate rationally. Also one I always carry for its help with stress, fears and panic attacks.
• Rose Quartz for embracing self compassion and self worth, healing the heart space.
Oh, and always a mini Citrine in my wallet for keeping the money flow 😉💸 💗
I could not have said this better... repost from @lissletters -
I know, you just want to see the pretty letters.... but we need to talk about #NiaWilson , and closer to home, #LaaChol . Both under 20... both murdered by men this past week in senseless acts of violence. We need to say their names. This violence needs to stop.
Aussies - I feel like our entire nation heard about Eurydice Dixon last month - and so we should have... but have you even heard of 19 year old Laa Chol whose life was taken this week? And if you have heard anything, was it in some nonsense context of gang violence? It’s a distraction from the real issue. A 19 year old WOC was stabbed to death, nothing about that is ok.
White women (self included) - we HAVE to do the work to dismantle this shit and demand justice for all women, not just those who look like us.
None of us are free until all of us are free.
Say her name. Demand justice for her. Dig deeper to find the truth and don’t let the media sell you any kind of bullshit story.

Head to my stories if you wish to donate to the GoFundMe to help Laa’s family.
