Recently I’ve been thinking about what it is that keeps us stuck, holds us back from the decision to make changes to our lives so we can live those rainbow dreams we all desire. What is it that stops us from choosing our truths and keep us stuck in patterns that really don't serve us. Because, get this, stop a minute and remember this, life is precious, it really is.
I’ve seen so many people have their lives be taken away from them too early to soon and it’s witnessing that again and again the really draws home the truth that life is a massive gift and we need to treat it like the gift that it is and makes sure that you do yourself the honour and ask yourself is this YOUR truth you are living. Is this a life that sings in tune to your own personal melody and if not, what are you going to do about it - HOW are you going to UNSTICK yourself from whatever it is you feel you need to?
This week I'm thinking about all the t’s it’s purely coincidental, I’m talking Transition, Trend, Turbans, Tartan and Tweed.
As we transition into autumn it’s got me thinking about how much transition there is in life, when you actually think about it you realise things are always moving forward or sometimes backwards and well even sideways at times! Really the most important thing is how we cope with these things. Just like the seasons it's good to develop positive coping mechanisms so that transition may be graceful.
Nature has created autumn as one of the most beautiful transitions of all the seasons, with the stress of the cold and wind she designed the trees so they may turn into stunning colours before they drop their leaves rather elegantly and gracefully. So, just like nature which coping mechanisms, can we adopt to help us with the transition into autumn?
Fashion week has started around the world and the seasons are changing rapidly I find myself thinking about what are the key looks I will be sporting this season. It’s not that I’m looking at the designers collections I’m more thinking about what my mood is, what I’m feeling drawn to this season. I’m also thinking about how I can work with my current wardrobe in a new fresh exciting way and how I can sort my cupboards out so they inspire me when I open them to get dressed. So here are my top tips for the new season;
So this season for us in the UK we're going into autumn which is a season I love, I’ve always loved autumn partly because it’s my birthday in November so I get to celebrate and also because of the colours. Being primarily an artist at heart and being bought up by an artist, I’ve been playing with colour all my life. I love it, colour can transform your mood instantly and wearing colour has such an enriching experience on your life. I once remember a healer telling me that it really isn’t good to wear too much black because it literally blocks light flowing into your body. When I thought about this for myself to me it made sense, black is such a dense colour.
