001. Getting all raw and a bit vulnerable today to talk about something I feel pretty passionate about; self love. It has taken me a long time to get to this point but I can honestly say I have never been happier in my skin, my mind and my body- and it's only onwards and upwards from here right?

002. I feel confident in my body. I feel confident in my words. I feel confident in my soul. I feel confident in who I am growing and changing and evolving to be each and every day. Self love for me is about acceptance, respect and kindness. Thanking my body for looking after me and carrying me through life. I accept where I am and I am happy. 

004. How cool is it they we have ended up here on earth having a human experience in a human body? We are a boundless and infinite source of energy, only using this psychical body as a home. That blows my mind. There are still mysteries about the human body which have not been uncovered and it's sad to think that so many people are out of touch with theirs. Put goodness into your body and put goodness into your mind- food AND thoughts. Breathe and connect. If you are feeling out of touch try to meditate (guided body scan meditations are especially a great place to start). 

005. The little sketch in this post is something I drew aimlessly a while ago but I rather liked. An explosion of my scattered thoughts and feeling towards this topic. 

005. Self love takes time. Self love is a practice. I have good days, I have bad days. When you begin to love yourself, you circulate positive energy into your soul, your relationships and your life. Choose love, choose happiness- because life is too short not to.

001. Just a collection of a few of my favourite photos I have taken recently. I really love photography; experimenting on the camera and also playing around with Photoshop. Just creating ALL the things that pop into my crazy brain! I also would love to get back into shooting film more regularly again but I really need to sort out my spending problem first (oops). 

002. I'm feeling super inspired and excited by life right now- so I'm going to just throw all the posts out on here I can! Life is fucking weird but also fucking beautiful. I just want to really LIVE and CREATE everything.

001. I honestly feel like a bit of a cheat posting this "recipe" because it only uses TWO ingredients. Both are available at almost every bulk food shop and are super super cheap. No need to keep producing rubbish and spending huge amounts of money on aerosol versions of dry shampoo when you have this little mix ready to go. This recipe creates zero waste, is 100% natural, really affordable and actually works! - do I need to convince you more?

- arrowroot powder
- cocoa powder

- there isn't much to it, just simply mix the two ingredients together to find a colour that works in your hair!
- start of with a tablespoon or so of arrowroot and just add the cocoa until the colour makes you happy
- lighter hair = less cocoa // darker hair = more cocoa
- I like to store mine in an old spice jar with a shaker lid for easy use

- simple sprinkle it along your scalp/hair part where it looks a bit oily and use a hair brush or your fingers to work it through - voila!

001. This is the first roll of film I had had developed in a very, very long time. Mainly because I'm a broke ass student, but also because I have a perfectly good camera that doesn't use precious resources for each photo. Combining these two problems I try to use film sparingly and for special occasions only- this one was Splendour in the Grass. Looking at these photos has not only re-ignited my love for shooting in film but also my love of a good boogey to live music in the middle of field. It does break my heart a tiny bit that I'll be missing summer festival season this year, but all the name of bigger and better things!

002. Enjoy these B grade photos of me and my friends making a fool of ourselves and enjoying every minute (all raw, natural and unedited for your viewing pleasure).

001. This past month has been filled with lots of lovely experiences, places and people. I have been taking my camera with me most places and have documented a few of these memories. A camping trip out in the forest, endless blue winter skies and a chilly weekend down in my favourite city were definitely the highlights.

002. I haven't really been blogging regularly for a while, so hopefully my inability to articulate words in this post will be forgiven. Right now I don't really know how I feel about this whole talking/writing to myself on the internet thing, but I know I really want to continue to push myself creatively. This is me making a little promise to myself to keep making, creating, doing and dreaming- just pouring it all out into the world!
