Inspiration

Sometimes I feel a little lost, this is when I try very hard to not feel guilty for stopping for a while.  Putting the phone down and turning it off, not going near the laptop and to tell myself it doesn’t matter that I’ve stepped away from the technology for a moment.   I get a bit frustrated with myself that I can’t muster good ideas or create good images for instagram but I also get a bit scared that what if it never comes back; what if I’ve peaked.

I do try very hard to be mindful, working through some of the knots I’ve got my head into, I spend a lot of time reading indulging in my favourite magazines and interior books hoping that a spark will appear.   Taking time away from the screens is good but I do let myself browse through Pinterest, a happy place where colour and images bring moments of joy.  Putting together mood boards that reflect what I’m seeing and feeling helps too.

So today this post features some of these boards; calming images in colour palettes that I find inspiring at the moment helping me to work through my anxieties a little and hopefully a little spark will be reignited once more.

Minimal but with Meaning

Over the last year I feel that I have finally found my space, I have an inner peace in all aspects of my life, knowing that I am who I am and truly comfortable within my own skin.  It’s taken a while but hey, and YES I have off days but who doesn’t?  When it comes down to how I look, dress, feel on a daily basis I’m doing ok.   I have a capsule wardrobe, I love having a crazy haircut  (being free of hair dye rocks) and also having the confidence to have 3 tattoos that hold great meaning and symmetry to me.

Which brings me onto Lines & Current. Through the magic of instagram and my latest inking of a closed circle, I met Rebekah the owner of L&C; a down-right amazing lady.  We sing from the same hymn sheet when it comes to pursuing simplicity in our everyday lives, how we live with minimal clutter in the home, to our minds and wardrobes creating an overall well being.

Simplicity is most definitely the key word in the ethos behind Lines & Current. The on line store is beautifully clear, perfect minimal pieces of jewellery that I find compelling.  I’m not one for bling and never have been, but I do like an statement piece to finish an outfit and ODIN is just that, sublime.  I can wear it with everything, it sits high and proud but with an air of delicateness that really appeals to me.

Funnily enough, meeting Rebekah and being able to wear ODIN truly makes my circle complete, everything fits into place as I said at the beginning of this post.  I am one now, strong, content, peaceful, life is good.

I highly recommend that you go and check out the other Lines & Current collections too, the sunglasses are some of the best I’ve worn in a long time, light weight with a classic edge that I haven’t taken off since the sun started shining (probably because Ruby wants to steal them too!)
