When I was a kid, I didn’t like pizza 🙊 To be more precise, I didn’t like HOT pizza 🤷🏻‍♀️ now give me some cold next day slices and I’m all over that 😜 but I digress 🙃 what I was getting at is that whenever we went to a pizza parlor the only thing I looked forward to was the leftovers + dessert 😏
Have you ever had #dessertpizza 🤨 well if you haven’t it’s supremely addicting, and one slice will never be enough!
I decided to bring some of my childhood memories to #pizzanight and serve up my own version of this dish 😎
Berry Cheesecake #pizza on @traderjoes new Sprouted Grain crust 👌🏻
Heres the deets
- smear your favorite yogurt onto the crust ( I used @nancysyogurt Whole Milk Verizon 😉)
- then spread on your favorite jam ( I used my homemade Blueberry Chia 💜)
- top with chopped fruit ( I used #organic 🍓)
- toasted nut/seed ( I used toasted 🥥)
- top with Maple Coconut Cheesecake ( melt @artisanaorganics coconut butter + maple syrup + organic whipping cream until soft and it begins to clump together!)
Bake at 400 for 15-20mins and serve warm ☺️ Hubby said it tasted liked a #cremebrulee + a #cheesecake 🤤😋
I’d say I’m starting this weekend off right!
Have a #happy Friday my people! I’ll be spending tomorrow packing up for 5 days away to a little town on the #coastoforegon ✌🏻 Hope y’all have a fabulous day and night!

I love this picture because it captures the otherworldly feel of Great Wanney through the contrast of nature and technology 🤖

The area around Great Wanney is populated by wind farms - some so close you can hear them. From anywhere at the crag you can see them, spinning in their endless hypnotic rhythm 🙃 I know some folk don’t like them, but actually I don’t mind them too much... they’re pretty in a sort of futuristic way.

I was packing up, the Sun was setting, was there enough time for one more Climb? Yes! No! Yes... No... maybe? YES!!!

I hurried my gear together, @birkw212 said he’d belay me and I smashed up the last Climb of the day as quick as I could. It was “Great Wall Direct” E5 6a - not a pushover with all the hard climbing condensed in a short section of only a few metres, but really well protected! In this picture I’m tackling the crux head on 🙂

This month 14 years ago I took 42 pairs of handmade earrings pinned to 2 cork boards, and displayed them at the tradeshow section at Australian Fashion Week. I was 22 years old & the space on the showroom wall cost $500. I put a prayer up to the universe that morning hoping to write one or two orders to cover the cost of the space. At the end of the 4 day tradeshow I had written $17,849.00 worth of orders. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
The tradeshow finished on a Sunday afternoon and I was meant to go back to my “real” job on Monday, it was a job I did just to get by & was leaning on because I didn’t believe in myself that I had what it took to start a business. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
On drive home from packing up tradeshow that Sunday, I stopped & picked up the weekend newspaper.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
This was my horoscope that Sunday. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
On Monday, I quit my “real” job, and at 22 years old committed to giving everything I had to build a jewellery business and a brand that I hoped people would want to be a part of. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
I know many of you have been on this journey with me from the very start, I am grateful to everyone who has been a apart of where the @SamanthaWillsOfficial brand is today, & also grateful for everyone who has also supported me in ventures I have done outside of the brand @SamanthaWillsFoundation ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Posting this today as a reminder to anyone who feels like what they are wanting to achieve is far out of reach. Nothing is instant & no matter what you read nothing is an overnight success. Keep at it, re-route where you have to, step away when you need to. THIS month 14 years ago wasn’t even a conceivable thought to me, but THAT month 14 years ago is still incredibly clear in my mind like it was yesterday. ⠀

Work with what you have right now, learn from the set backs & celebrate the wins. But most of all; give yourself some credit. It’s fucking hard, even more so when shit hits the fan, & it feels as if everything is against you & you feel like everyone has given up on you. As hard as it gets, I encourage you most in those moments to not give up on yourself, keep going. "If you don’t believe in your plan, how can you expect anyone else to?" ⠀
Much love & admiration to you this weekend - SWx

°
After Michael died you could say I had little to any faith in anything at all. I saw little meaning in the daily passing's of life and slowly allowed my heart to become stagnant.

It would be 3 months after his passing that I felt as if I received my first sign...the one that would lead me to start the AWP...doubt-filled, I'd follow it and in doing so found an a tiny bit of faith had filled my heart. The next sign came in the form of a random map I'd see in 2008....it was just titled "The Way".... 4 months later it would lead me to venturing out on the Camino de Santiago in Spain....I returned a month later with 3 more inches of faith piling up in that soul of mine and i slowly pbecane aware of the pumping of my own blood back through my veins......and so I continued my journey of following "random" signs and finding my way back into being....my way back into trusting great spirit, trusting life....my way back into loving at every capacity. •
11 years later and I've jumped onto a plane to hike the Shikoku in Japan...headed to india after finding a christmas ornament...and allowed myself to fall and be love and in love with the man of my dreams when sign after sign yelled at stubborn me to look, trust, act and embrace (Thanks for being patient with me, moochie 😉😂). •
I had a sign recently & shared with Greg that I felt I needed to follow it to the mountains of Buffalo River.. He smiled and told me, "Well, every time you have followed them you come back with some new perspective and outlook. It's been who makes you you since we first met. I'll miss you. Go do you." (❤ that man). So here I am...packing up my walking stick, hiking boots, my (adopted-from-my-dad) hat and a good book...following another sign that is taking me who knows where...but i know one thing...this little trip is pouring even more faith into a heart now overflowing with it...because as I've learned, you can never have enough. 🌈🙌 #signs #love

Somehow, I always find the Southerners in the room. @kathleen_barnes and I met at a blogger happy hour years ago, and we hit it off from the word y’all. She was one of the first true friends I made from blogging, and I can’t believe she’s moving to San Francisco tomorrow for her next chapter.
If you eat with her, there will most likely be queso involved, or at least discussed. (Why isn’t it on more California menus though?) If you travel with her, expect a delay, an almost overnight in JFK Airport, or a sketchy sleepless night in some airport motel somewhere near Phoenix. (Or maybe that’s traveling with me? 🤔). But if you know her, then you know a genuine friend. She’ll show up at your house with boxes and a bottle of wine when you’re packing up everything you own 2 days before a work trip to Miami. She’ll talk you off the ledge when your new puppy is driving you ding dong crazy. She’ll live her best cruise life with you before your new home remodel makes you a looney toon. And she’s always ALWAYS down to share some fries...or Cheetos.
She’s a gal’s gal, our NYC navigator, my fellow mall rat, a cheerleader for her friends, and truly one of a kind. San Francisco is getting a good one this week 😘

Is is harder and harder as the boys get older to find a balance but I think that as a family we are also becoming more aware of each other’s needs. So today I am having some alone time packing up the lodge whilst the boys’ and Drew make the most of @crealyresort - they will be going on the rides, getting wet, going on go karts and filling their faces with chips and donuts (that will be making them happy). Whilst I enjoy the peace of the lodge, my own company and some hand sewing in the fresh air. Then they will be back for a cream tea (Maxi and Drew made a trip to Dawlish and Gays Creamery first thing for supplies and pasties!) before doing it all again. Then we are off to @thewhiteapproach for a curry before going home tomorrow.

A chance to focus more on each other & less on keeping our heads above water. It's scary but super exciting. We have big dreams we're trying to cultivate & this is our best chance at making them a reality. I don't know if I'll be able to carve out such a beautiful dedicated area to lay down my mat in our next destination since we're moving to a smaller space. I guess I'll just have to get a little creative. I mean we all know that technically speaking you don't need a mat to throw down some good asanas, right‽ I'll miss this little space but I look forward to spicing up my feed a little with some newness. Stay tuned. And thank you everyone for all your encouragement & positive vibes. ✨🙏🏼✨

I'm in the middle of moving to the other side of the country, so I've been a little preoccupied recently. That being said, I've been chugging through flavours like they're going out of fashion... and in doing so, burnt several fingers on several fresh builds. About a week ago I decided to fill up on something from the guys at Pure Lightning. Because it smelt pure grand.

Pure Sherbet has an awesome tangy aroma that comes through cleanly on the inhale. I'm not a massive fan of sherbet in the real world, but there's a hint of ice cream in this that helps mellow the sharpness you'd expect from something that smells so damn tart.

These guys have some pretty regular pipet styled bottles, with a cool frosted bottle twist. It automatically makes the liquid seem chilled. An odd aesthetic that sits well alongside that Harry Potter head scar logo they've got going on.

Despite the tingly sweetness this juice supplies, there seems to be a sort of dark undertone I can't for the life of me get a hold on. I honestly don't know what it is. Maybe a sort of burnt sugar, or caramel... or I still haven't got the hang of this new RBA build.

All in all it's worth a toke, or several.

Good vapour production and a decent sized bottle of juice for the money.

I've got to get back to packing boxes... and boxes... and boxes. But I'll be sure to throw some more reviews up during the transition.

I actually was one of them when I started my fitness career, I use to be very skinny and had a hard time gaining muscle mass. With time Ive been able to understand exactly what it takes to build muscle and it’s awesome that I can help my clients do the same. Extremely proud of chris, he killed it in the last 4 weeks and packed on solid muscle, lets keep killing it bro!

This morning as I was packing up to leave my husband said something to me that really stuck with me.

"I remember when I met you you were just a smart girl with a twinkle in your eye. Now look at you. I'm proud of you."
He smiled as he sent me off on another one of my road warrior trips; this time out to Nashville 〰which incidentally is where we first met.
〰〰
As a child I believe we all have a vision of what we want to be when we grow up. I never in a million years thought that my road would end up where it has today. I've taken some twists and turns, some sharp hairpin curves. And the journey has been more than worth it and the destination is still yet unknown. All I know is that that twinkle is still there and every day I'm one of the lucky ones who gets to see the twinkle begin to happen in another woman's eye. 〰〰〰
This weekend will be the very first all-female NPC show. This is groundbreaking. This is the beginning of a new era. And I am just beyond thrilled that I get to be a part of it.
First we Conquer Nashville...then the world!

First journey of the month down, two more to go. April has already been a whirlwind and we’re only rolling into the second week today. I’ve already traveled a few hundred miles, slept in two hotels, and packed, unpacked, and repacked. My head feels like I’m spinning but my heart is full. I’m thankful that I have a job that gives me the opportunity to travel. I’m thankful that i get to work with some of the most remarkable, hysterical, and talented people out there. I’m thankful that part of my assignment for last’s weeks northeast division meeting involved creating an awesome team bonding segment with the best partner. I love that my work bestie put up with my last minute need to go to Walmart at a crazy hour to go find silly fun prizes for our team members (side note- if you ever have a need for blow up crowns and mini fancy plastic eggs, Walmart is def the place to go) and didn’t kill me for my ridic levels of procrastination. I’m thankful that my decision to invest in a life of wanderlust led me to be able to book a last minute stay at a resort with part of my team rather than starting our travels at 0400. And I am oh SO thankful for small towns like Lee, Massachusetts that have delightful restaurants and creperies that are tucked away in the most charming places. .

The Lost Coast did not disappoint. @ben4stout and I are taking a meandering route back to Idaho and are stalling a bit as it’s still winter there. Inspired by an opportunity to join part of an epic adventure that was already taking place, Ben and I jumped on it. Okay, we’re in! Made the morning run up Mt. Tam on Wednesday and then headed north to Usal Beach. Take chances, ask questions later. The plan was to wake up before 2am yesterday to hit the tides right. Woof. I see 2am frequently, but never as a time to start my morning! Luckily, plenty of rain encouraged an early bedtime. The right amount of @sombramezcal and a fire tended by @rickeygates kept us plenty warm as we cooked a scrumptious taco dinner. Loads of avocado is the key to every great meal. Standing around, socializing, sopping wet, yet totally okay with it—rare! Stoke level was just about maxed out all day yesterday. After taking our time packing up camp at Usal Beach and overindulging in luxurious camp coffee, we watched darkness turn to dawn before leaving the coast temporarily. Braving the rough and twisty roads to Shelter Cove. Ready to fiesta, @ben4stout ran north on the Lost Coast from Shelter Cove to Mattole Beach. About 25.7 miles according to @stravarun. Still feeling tiredness in my legs from a week of running adventures that that included @norcalultras’ #WayTooCool50k, I was happy to be more of a spectator. I managed to run the first four miles with Ben, a nice tail wind at our backs. It was refreshing to head back at a slower pace. So many sea shells. Observing signs of wildlife. So many beach treasures. Some expected, some very unusual. I let the waves baptize me. Shielding my phone from the sideways rain became a priority. It rained hard. AMAZING, regardless. Once I thawed out after being drenched to the bone, I jumped in my rig, stopping for directions and maps at the Kings Range BLM office and raced to meet Ben where he would finish. This place is incredible. If it isn’t on your radar, it should be. It’s beautiful. It’s lonely. It’s dangerous. The ocean is incredibly powerful both physically and spiritually. I cannot wait to start planning the next stoke filled trip to come back.

This is where most business pages would talk about the upcoming year and all of the big plans they have in store, unfortunately for me the story is a little different.
I wanted to let you guys know that I am going to put iloveoldskool.com on pause. As you may have (or have not) noticed, I have really been lacking on the updates. Earlier this year I had been planning new shirt releases, promotions, and some other cool stuff for the website. I have taken the last couple of months to really think about if I wanted to pursue this business and continue to make it a bigger entity. I am lucky enough to have a career that supports my family. With my kids, and all of my other hobbies in mind, I decided I want to focus on family, and building my car back up. I have had my shed full of OEM parts for a few years now, and next year is a year that I would like to take my car to some more events. I want to spend time with my kids without thinking about needing to fix our website, posting on social media, returning an email, or packing & shipping an order etc etc. Like I told my old co-workers at LAX, when my kids get to an age where they don't want me around I may try it again, but for now they are at a point where I need to focus on them.
I really REALLY really appreciate all of the support I have received from everyone, all over the world. I still remember the first time I saw my own license plate on a car up in the Bay Area, that was one of the coolest feelings I will never forget.
I may drop back in to post updates on my car a bit, but I can't continue to do what I was doing. If you want to unfollow the page, I have no hard feelings. I have been tossing around the idea of opening the webstore 1-2 times a year for a short period so you guys can still order items but we will see where that leads.
So for now I leave you with the first picture of my car that I posted on this page. 🎉🎉I hope you guys have a safe New Year, and an amazing year to come. 🎉🎉

Today was the day I was supposed to be releasing six new pieces, the first installment of my Major Arcana Tarot collection. But running a business alone, which includes every task from emails, to production, to packing up boxes, to making content for the internet, and on and on and on has slowed me down this year more than ever. It’s on account of how busy I’ve been making & sending out clothes to y’all that I haven’t had a chance in MONTHS to even think about new designs, which is both AMAZING and hard! I am so thankful that my little business is growing, that I am making things that mean so much to the folks that wear them, that I get to express this part of my magic with such outpouring of support. I’m learning, constantly, as I go too. This lesson is that sometimes things need to be put on the back burner for a while and that that’s ok. In the meantime I’ve been training a new assistant, working on having more consistent photo shoots so that I can show y’all some new colors of current pieces, allowing myself to take weekends off...etc. So this post is a really long rambling way of saying THANK YOU! And I will have the first installment of the tarot collection out soon, not sure when yet, but before too long. And in the meantime dresses are on sale and I’m donating 50% of the sale of each to @raicestexas, @pueblosinfronteras, and @borderangelsofficial because fuck invisible lines and fuck the settler colonialist state that says some bodies are legal and some are illegal. Happy summer solstice y’all!

Two weeks ago I did something completely out of character. I dropped everything and moved clear across the country. No apartment yet, turned in my car lease early, and packed up my must have clothes and took a one way flight to Cali. Holy balls, Jen. HOLY BALLS. WHO AM I?!
-
It was such a last minute pull. About a month ago I was offered to work at the @bodybyo HQ, but I also had the time to continue to grow my own business. It was exactly the little bump I needed to make the leap to pursue my business with a reckless passion. Thank you @kimbooddo☺️.
-
Once I got to Cali, I stayed at an Air BNB while I got myself situated. The hosts ended up being more than amazing and helped make the transition a little smoother.
-
Now...normally, this type of unplanned situation would have sent me into a full on panic and anxiety attack. But somehow everything felt right. Even the chaos of packing everything in one day. Yes, ONE day. When I got back from Ireland, had ONE full day to pack before leaving first thing. It was that last minute of a decision.
-
I didn’t tell many, just my closest friends and family. I’m god awful at goodbyes so I didn’t want some send-off or big deal...I wanted to just get to my destination once I gave myself the green light to GO. See...that’s how I am...once a decision is made (good or bad) it’s full throttle and 💯% commitment.

Looking back at the crazy month I’ve had, I’ve done so many things outside of my normal comfort zone. It has completely changed the direction of my entire life and I’m in love with the new, even happier me. I’m beyond grateful for this amazing move. I’m even more proud of myself for taking a chance on ME. Investing & believing in MYSELF. I’m now living a life that I always used to dream and drool over✨ #motivation #motivationmonday #dreambig #takeachance #investinyourself #girlboss #thankful #love #cantstopwontstop #brave #strength #risktaker #faith #happy #goals #liveyourbestlife #dontlookback #moresunnydays #caligirl #socal #lakeelsinore #views #jenronfit

I spent some time this afternoon folding up baby clothes to pass along to a sweet friends new baby boy.

There is something inexplicably sad about lasts. This is the last time I’ll be packing up teeny tiny baby clothes. It’s only the beginning of the lasts, and while I know not having more children was our choice (we are maxed out in every way possibly with 4), the lasts hurt.
I’m going to try and look forward to more firsts and try to not view them as lasts.
Side note: I knit this tiny little sock while pregnant with Atticus with a scrap of yarn. He never wore it but it’s special to me as he’s my rainbow baby. I’ll tuck it in his baby box one day.
That beautiful crochet blanket behind is my baby blanket that my mom made me out of Irish linen. My kids use it. And when not in use, it’s in plain sight for all of us to see.

One of our favourite summertime (non-)indulgences has, for a long time, been iced coffee; whether from Nero, Costa or, yep, Starbucks, an Americano on ice, packing a double-shot of espresso...it's cold, refreshing, and just the perfect pick-me-up on a hot, humid day! (kinda like today! #StarbucksSunday) ☀️☕❄️
.
Great news!! Seattle's most famous export (barring Frasier, of course!), Starbucks Coffee, have been good enough to condense their creative, bean-roasting expertise into a range of cute little, grab-and-go, gymbag-friendly, energy-boosting DoubleShot 💥 cans and, well, we had to get involved!!
.
Thing is, it's not always easy to find your way to your local green mermaid coffee house (plus some of those hipster beards can be off-putting!! 😂) and having that authentic iced-Starbucks experience right out of your fridge at home? Right before your next gym session? GREAT idea!!
.
Especially when each 200ml can packs in the best part of 100mg caffeine, is made with 100% Fairtrade Arabica coffee beans AND is low sugar too! 🙌
.
.
We've got both the straight-up, none-more-black Espresso blend and (our fave) the No Added Sugar Espresso + Milk blend (a little sweeter, a little milder...a delicious-tasting boost, that only leaves us wishing the cans were a little bigger!!) 😆
.
.
As always, more new goodies hitting the Mix for you this week, along with some VERY overdue restocks!! 👻😉
.
Enjoy the rest of your weekends, folks!! .

This pic has a lot of meaning for me. When I was in my early 20's I moved to Saskatoon to run my own @cutcocutlery District office. I was still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted to do in my life. Fortunately I had an amazing group of people in the @vectorcanada organization to keep me learning & questioning & growing as a person.

This pic was framed on my office wall across from my desk. It always felt great reading this text. And having just dusted it off in a box I'm sure I haven't looked in since packing up my office in 2014, the words still hold a lot of merit. Even more so know that I feel I have a few parts of this life thing figured out. Anyway, it's helped me stay focused on what is important in life and perhaps it can help you too.

This time ten years ago, @sheliazlewis, @jillian.lewis, and I were traveling from place to place, sleeping on whatever couch or spare bedroom we could find that night. Three years later, in May of 2010, we drove past a house with a "For Lease" sign that we didn't think we could ever afford. Through a series of events that I can only understand as divine intervention, we were soon packing up our limited possessions and moving in. A lot of memories were made in that house. The day we got the keys to the house, @maddiemcbowen came over to see it and to tell me that @mattbowen03 had asked her out on a date. Two weeks later, @jessemac3992 picked me up from that house for our first date. Today is bittersweet, as we say goodbye to the first place that ever truly felt like a home for the Lewis girls. This place is more than just a house to me. It's a symbol of God's provision in a dark and scary time. As I think back over the last decade, I am truly amazed and humbled by the generosity, love, and grace our family has experienced. "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want." -Philippians 4:12. I will be forever grateful for the time of need I experienced, for the family I experienced it with, and for the God who brought us through it. Thank you to everyone who opened their homes to us during our time of need. You gave us not only a roof over our heads, but some stability in a chaotic time. Thank you to everyone who sent money when we had none left. You gave us not only food, gas, and Christmas presents, but also hope for tomorrow. And most of all, thank you @sheliazlewis, for everything. You showed me how to work hard, live selflessly, and give generously. Most importantly, you taught me what real, raw, unwavering faith looks like. Congratulations on buying your first house, Mom. You are my hero, and you deserve every good thing that comes your way. I love you.

Bittersweet emotions packing up the cart that served us so well for 2 years. We have finally found a happy home for the trailer with a new pedal power business in Madison, WI. As we pack up the equipment we are flooded with great memories of all the hard work, great people, and wonderful support from our community. We started out with some crazy ideas about an ultra-sustainable business and we set out to make it a reality. We achieved our goals and the experience was even more amazing than we imagined. I know it sounds cheesy, but I want to urge everyone to follow their dreams no matter how wild they are. I promise you will be blown away by what you can achieve once you set your mind to it. That has been the ultimate reward from our business endeavor. So now as well sell off the last of our equipment, we will fulfill a promise to our selves and take a much deserved vacation. We don't know where we're going but rest assured there will be bicycles. Stay tuned!

I still plan on cosplaying, and my new place will let me finally have a Sewing Studio. <3
This is an old, old throwback to some of my more beginner costumes. ( I mean seriously, look at that trash bag looking Satin I used *facepalm*) Shampoo from Ranma 1/2 was, and is, one of my absolute favorite anime characters. The yellow dress was from one of the OVA, called Desperately Seeking Shampoo, and the pink dress was her cute little iconic dress that she would wear. I still regret never having a plush version of her cat form commissioned.
I've been wanting to create an elaborate outfit for her, but always kept putting it on the back burner. I've got a few showstoppers I'd like to debut first, but I might have to revisit this character and enjoy some old-school nostalgia. <3

Happy birthday to meeee!
This was from last year’s 30th birthday cake smash shoot, which would mean that today I am 31!!! 30 was an INSANE year for me; quitting my job of 3 1/2 years, leaving my family and friends, and packing up my husband’s car and driving to Georgia with no jobs and no place to live! I got hired at a couple cool new jobs, including a bubble tea shop, a crazy vegan restaurant, and a catering company. We found an incredible apartment that I absolutely adore, and I love spending my time there (especially on my hammock on the balcony!). I adopted a dog who is my new bff, bought myself a car-in cash, did some great stuff with my blog and Instagram, including an exciting collaboration with @saigon_om that is taking me to Vietnam the end of this year(!), I used a cupcake atm, met Travis Barker and Usher, made some amazing new friends, explored the crap out of Atlanta, I became an official volunteer with the Georgia Aquarium, and last but not least, I became even closer to the man I get to call my husband @nicklapinta89 spending so much time together, and getting to know him and fall in love with him all over again.
Like I said-an insane, incredible, wonderful year! One of the best years of my life!
Thirty was more than I could have ever hoped and imagined, so I absolutely CAN NOT WAIT to see where life takes me on my thirty first year of life!!! 😜💖🎉
See the rest of my epic cake smash session, as well as all the posts about my 30th birthday on the blog, direct link in bio!

Back at work and back in routine. 2017 was full of AMAZING milestones, I can honestly say most of my biggest changes happened last year. Including: getting a puppy (who is my best friend) moving into my OWN home & marrying my soul mate. Although all these things were exciting and joyful, there was a lot of stress behind the scenes. Moving houses brought days of packing and unpacking, budgeting, cleaning, adulting, furniture making and big purchases. Getting a puppy involved vaccinations, long nights & early mornings, toilet training and cleaning up lots of pee’s and poo’s. Lastly, marrying my best friend including soooo many meeting, so much planning, lots of stressful moments of uncertainty & a whole lot more. This is the reason why I’m looking forward to 2018 (and onwards) it’ll be a year where I can really sit back and enjoy all these amazing milestones. Enjoy being a wife, in my own home, enjoy being a mumma to a little furball, all without the worries that I had last year. This year, and onwards my aim is to be fit and healthy, not only physically, but mentally too. It’s time to put the phone down, it’s time to take care of my body, it’s time to enjoy the little things, it’s time to put some more focus on ME, my husband, family, friends and pooch. I am so excited for what is to come.

Australian opals always remind me of the sea, of rippling waves and jagged shells, of sparkling scales and mermaid fins, and of course, of ancient sunken treasure.

Australian opals always remind me of the sea, of rippling waves and jagged shells, of sparkling scales and mermaid fins, and of course, of ancient sunken treasure. Their tie to the sea comes as no surprise when we consider the fact that opals are formed from water, as it trickles through layers of the earth, picking up silica as it goes, and eventually depositing itself in any cracks and crevices it can find. Most of the gems you see here were cut by the master, @keithcler, and I already have designs planned out for some of them! Spending today packing up more of your many orders, before I continue working on pieces for the Chambers of the Sea Collection, coming 8/6 at 8pm est. 🐚💎

Today is a pretty big day for me, as it’s Morgan and I’s final day in Perth, tomorrow is the day we start our drive across the country to start our new adventure in the Gold Coast.
.
And I wanted to take a second (sitting in a chesterfield chair, sipping on my latte in the morning sun) to explain WHY we are leaving.
.
You see, I love Perth, I’m obsessed with my beautiful little city, and proudly love to say I consider myself one of its biggest ambassadors. That hasn’t changed - I have never been MORE in love with our city.
.
But we are comfortable. We have never been in a more perfect comfortable position. And I always want to be growing. I don’t like comfortable, I crave growth. Good, after all, is the enemy of Great. So when Morgan suggested he would like to give living somewhere else a go, I jumped at the idea because even though we live an extraordinary life - I know with huge change and a big circulation of energy, stepping in to the unknown zone and forcing ourselves to grow - it can be even MORE magnificent.
.
We had a house we adored, my home office was my fav space to be in, we have the greatest group of friends we have ever been surrounded by, I am a family girl and adore being around my immediate fam, we were obsessed with our gym & fit fam, new babies are getting added to my family - (I could go on) ... so it’s HARD to leave Perth. It’s UNCOMFORTABLE to leave Perth. I’m sad to leave all of that behind. Some would say we are crazy to leave our happy comfortable lives.
.
But I truly believe that nothing changes if nothing changes - and we couldn’t think of a bigger change, than giving away & getting rid of most of our belongings, packing up our entire lives, and moving to the other side of the country ✌🏽 it’s scary, I’ve cried many times, I have laid in bed and said to Morgs almost every second day - ‘fxck are we doing the right thing?’, my routine and structure - the - thing I crave the most, has been put in a blender and shredded to oblivion and it’s already made me stretch in ways I haven’t had to in a very long time. And I’ve LOVED every second of that. This is the growth I was seeking - and we haven’t even left yet 😂 CONT’D in COMMENTS....

And out of nowhere I felt like I was having a minor heart attack, caused by this tiny little worn out -used to be attached to a ring- crap piece of metal.
.
.

I first got angry with myself for holding onto this, but then this is the bird that I (combined with my VERY limited skills in Spanish, supported by my travel company that could barely pronounce Hola 💁🏼‍♀️) used as a model for my first tattoo I made in Peru 5 years ago, and there is just no way I can throw it away.
.
.

The tattoo turned out ok against all odds (except the head is twisted and it sort of looks like it’s dying a little from an angle😅). But, I’ve had times when I’ve wanted to scrub this tattoo off, or cover it with something new due to the pain of the sole memory of this time & person I was with. But as I held the bird I realized that this tattoo, time and person is a part of me. And no matter how hard I try to flee from it or hide it from myself, this is fact. There will always be pain but on the other side of pain there is... no more pain 💁🏼‍♀️.
.
.

You see, that’s how painful memories works, your body and mind does everything to prevent you from ending up in situations that might cause you to feel this trauma again and you flee. It’s beautiful really, your own mind is protecting you from being hurt again. But - the shortcut, is not to escape or cover this memory with another tattoo and pretend it or he was never a part of your life. It is to feel it. I picked up the bird and felt this horrible horrible heartache, and I accepted it.
.
.

You can’t choose in life what parts you want your past story to be built of, some stuff just happen, but we can choose what parts we want our future to contain. I see a lot of people I love, wholeness, great surf and puppies in there 💫

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I’m in the midst of packing up to head home to Malaysia, and today with a very heavy heart, I bid Lexis Busan goodbye. This short two years tenure as an intern in Seoul then staff in Busan, has been one of the best experiences I could’ve asked for and I’m extremely thankful to my boss for trusting me with this opportunity. Of course, there were times when it got stressful and tough but I believe it is through these moments that I have learnt and grown so much as a person. It is also through this role that I’ve not only had the pleasure of meeting friends from all over the globe; I’ve also had the opportunity to work with one of the best teams ever and experience 정 (an indescribable, special type of love + affection + bond + a whole lot more) through my colleagues, some of whom are some of the dearest people to me today. Whilst to some extent, I’m glad I am finally heading home to my loved ones after over a decade of living abroad, it truly hasn’t been the easiest decision to make. I love and enjoy my job and I know I’m going to miss it lots but I believe this isn’t goodbye. Whilst I may not be here physically, I’ll continue to be here in spirit. And one day... One day, I’ll be back!

I have learned a lot, grown in confidence, loved it and now I am letting it go. My kids were two and four when I moved in here and now they are four and going on seven. That seems crazy to me. My oldest asked as we were packing up the last of the items today, "why are we closing the booth again?" It has been something in their lives and much as mine and my husband's and we are a little sad to see it closed down. I don't know what's next, but I am looking forward to taking a break and figuring that out. I will be selling in some capacity I am sure of it. I will be posting on here again more and probably doing some sales. Stay tuned!

I got out the tent at 8.30am, got to the bathroom and then took at 8.45am the first tent image, guess i was up for 30min cuddling in the sleeping bag or something. The night was optimal again, as every tent night so far. Yes.
Next salami image was 9.36am. Got breakfast after all was packed up. I somehow hurried up a little because of the storm weather warning but it was finally routine now. It also looked like it started to rain every moment. But as the bench was dry packing up was a lot easier (understatement). But time for some nice breakfast always should be… The sleeping pad shot was a tweet to @martinjeeper which is based on a kind of running gag because the pad is comfy and really large, no more minimal carrot form and so but packing size is still awesome (expensive shit, haha). So i always call it the couch and this image should demonstrate it, haha. Maybe you dont get the point herein. Haha. HAHA. He also owns it and recommended it to me.

And last image on slide 1 with benches was for someone on Twitter which i saw a reply of for the first time which made me smile. All tweeting was seemingly read by somebody ;) It was about that in his age this benches are pretty pratical.
As always in the morning the first km were a little fresh until i got warm, so i starting riding, took the gloves after some min, then the headband over the ears and then both off after 10min more minutes, always the same. I took some kilometer back the same route as yesterday to the camping. Normally i dont like this but this seemed to be the best solution. The other track would spare out some km which seemed very interesting on the map and so they were. I was back at the river.

Boy, i got muddy as f*ck. The worst parts i couldnt take an image because i was happy not to stop riding and step off the bike which would be really really ugly, haha. My boots got deep profile grooves where the mud really sticks in, on some other day i took a small stick to scrape out the dry mud, haha.

What I love most about adventurous wedding photography, traveling and being in the outdoors is that it’s NEVER EASY. Not what you were expecting, right? Yes, I would rather suffer together than have everything be perfect. Why? Because doing something hard together creates the most unforgettable memories, takes a relationship to a new depth and creates realistic expectations for life.

Katie and Marc are true adventurers, so naturally we decided to hike 10 miles to an alpine lake in the northern cascades of Washington for their engagement photos. It was a complete disaster. I was really sick the morning we were hiking in, weak and on the verge of fainting multiple times along the trail, and what was supposed to take us 6 hours to hike took us closer to 9. By the time we finally found the lake, it was more like 13 miles in, and completely swarming with thousands of newly hatched mosquitos. We decided to cook inside the tent and without going into too many details, ended up with Thai curry all over the bottom of the tent. We were ready to give up and just hike back in the morning because we were all SO MISERABLE. As we started packing up I said, “Let's just shoot for 10 minutes and you can run the whole time to stay away from the mosquitoes.” This was by far my least AND most favorite engagement shoot of all time. We suffered hard together, grew so much closer, created an unforgettable memory, and got some beautiful images throughout it all. — @annigraham #RfTakeover #northerncascades #washingtonweddingphotographer #annigraham

⭐️
And we’ll miss our home that we’re packing up today. A lot of beautiful memories created here in our little UWS apartment. My husband and I met in our building. We fell in love here. We got married, raised Ava here, and had baby Zoe!
⭐️
One of the things I’ll miss most is our “back porch” - the window sill in our bedroom. We’d sit here at the end of the day, drink wine, laugh, look out at the city, make big plans, talk about tough things, have some epic arguments, make up, and laugh some more.
⭐️
Here’s to the next chapter!! And may it include an actual back porch. 😛

.
A month ago today, my mom landed at Mass General Hospital for emergency brain surgery after being airlifted by the Coast Guard from our home in Martha’s Vineyard.
.
I slept in her hospital room every night, falling asleep to the sound of machines methodically bleeping and waking up to the sun rise over the Charles River and nurses making the morning rounds. One day, she asked to go outside and the nurses said no, it was against policy. We respectfully pushed back, and when we received written permission from a doctor to go out in the garden it felt like the biggest victory in a tiny little battle.
.
In that moment we had no idea how many battles lie ahead. Almost two weeks later, pathology confirmed the diagnosis I’d been dreading: grade four glioblastoma. Terminal brain cancer. A thousand Instagram captions would not be enough to explain how it felt to hear those words.
.
After seven years of incurable wanderlust, my world shrank to one person. Right now I’m in my hometown, helping take care of my mom around the clock, and I’ll soon be packing up my life in Thailand to move back to Albany and fit a couple decades of love laughter and memories into whatever time we are blessed with. Every day seems to have its battle but we also try to fit in bliss — visiting with friends on the screened porch, sharing beautiful home cooked family meals, having DIY spa days in the living room.
.
Many of you have noticed I haven’t been posting on my blog and I truly appreciate your notes checking on me and your patience while I adjust to this new reality. While mom and I were having our daily heart to heart and cry today, we agreed — we’ve never felt more loved.
.
Some days I’m so overwhelmed with grief and anxiety I want to crawl right out of my skin and into another reality. Other days I manage to follow my mother’s example of grace and gratitude.
.
The day we heard the diagnosis, she was stunned, to say the least. But after a while, she said something to the doctor I’ll never forget.
.
“You know, I’ve been so blessed, I always thought I’d already had more than my fair share.”

I've never really thought about myself as an artist growing up. I've always loved to draw and paint and make art but I never called myself an artist. I had self doubt and a case of imposter syndrome weighing on my shoulders. I put my artwork up on my website for sale, though. I initially did this a little bit out of desperation & intense worry about money with medical expenses and now college expenses. but in just the couple of weeks that I've been doing it, it has become so much more. now I know I am an artist. I can call myself that confidently. you all gave me that confidence. whether you've bought prints or simply supported me by sharing my shop or offered kind words to lessen the weight of my self doubt. so thank you. I can never say it enough. it is still about creating a solution to overwhelming expenses on behalf of my illnesses but it has turned into something that is nothing short of magical as well. I feel such intense gratitude each and every time I am filling an order or someone tells me my art touched them. I am enchanted at the thought of my art hanging on your walls and my only hope is that they bring a bit of love and light into your space and your life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
a lot of the time. I make art to cope. I make it on the nights where I'm too afraid of nightmares to sleep. I make it on days in the hospital when I'm hooked up to more machines that I can count. I make it on the days when the world feels big and cold. I make it on the days when packing for college seems utterly impossible. thank you for allowing me this outlet. thank you. thank you. thank you.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
this post really is just a post of gratitude and thanks and giving some insight into just how meaningful a seemingly mundane thing is to me. however, if you'd like to shop my art you can click the link in my bio or go to eleanorwheeler.com/shop. and you can use code ARTISCOOL for 20% off. thank you from the bottom of my heart, from all I have to give.

We will restock EVERY FRIDAY until October. We love you guys and we’ll do our best to keep up with the demand. We’re a small company (there’s only a few of us making the products, labeling everything by hand, packaging and packing all online orders). We recognize we could use some more help and that there’s room for improvement. I promise you that we’re always striving to improve. So thanks for your enthusiasm and dedication. Next restock happens on 8.31.!

"During much of the 40th Anniversary tour, Tom and the band would launch into a kind of hurricane of noise and feedback at the end of 'American Girl' that often culminated with Tom knocking over his mic stand as Mike swung his guitar over his head. I got some great pictures during this moment each night, especially of TP. Sometimes he’d sneer at me, or kick at my camera, or poke at me with the fallen mic stand. It was always a lot of fun.

On this particular night in Berkeley (August 28, 2017), I was behind his amp line taking some wide shots of the stage and crowd when TP spotted me. Slowly, Tom dragged his guitar behind him across the stage, and when he was about five feet away, he swung it up and began jousting me with it.
Except this time, I’d gotten too close.
WHAM!
The butt end of Tom’s Fender Electric 12 met my Nikon 14-24mm lens. It’s the only time it’s ever happened to me.
Startled, I stumbled back behind Tom’s amps into Bug’s world as Ferrone pounded his cymbals, ending the song. The band took their bow and exited the stage, and as I was packing up my cameras, I looked over the lens, expecting it to be damaged. To my surprise, nothing was broken.
About 15 minutes or so later, my phone rang. 'Did I break it?' Tom asked with a laugh when I picked up. I told him that the lens had surprisingly survived. 'Wow, glad it’s ok,' he said. There was a short pause and then more laughter. 'I bet you got a great photo!’ “ - @actennille , Photographer. #pettyforever

I know y’all are here for clothes and kiddos, and that I’m not a beauty blogger or an expert on makeup, I’ve literally worn the same “look” for 10 years, BUT I wanted to share with the ladies and the Mama’s, and maybe some fellas, some products that have been essential these first 6 weeks of new-Mama-again life. Starting with @milkmakeup’s cooling water— caffeine infused, goes under and around your eyes, literally saving me from looking like death is upon me. When you’re up a few times during the night, nothing shows it more than your eyes, and cooling water has gotten me the “you look refreshed!” comment numerous times when I have NOT been. To keep with the @milkmakeup line, their kush mascara and kush brow gel. Pepper has such dark hair, but like her Mama, has inherited my so-blonde-they’re-almost-white eyebrows and lashes.. so I don’t leave home without either of these on. They don’t harden, they leave my lashes soft and touchable and same for my brows. Did I mention I don’t leave home without them on? I don’t. And because Pepper spends so much time near my face, @clarycollection balm is my go to moisturizer. 6 ingredients, all organic, I don’t have to think twice about letting her put her mouth all over my face. (I even used it to clear up some heat rash on Oliver.) Last but surely not least!! @danikenneyco barefoot babe bum balm! This ones not for me, but used on Peppers super sensitive bum skin. We have been using disposables on days we venture out of the house (for now) and her poor little bum cheeks don’t like them. The bum balm seriously and honestly clears up whatever might be red so quick. Also organic, also simple ingredients. Like I said, I wanted to share because I TRULY live by these products, and sharing is caring. I will be packing them up first thing when we head to upstate New York next week, and then checking twice that I did. PS: dreading the car ride up there.

Didn’t think I’d ever do one of these but what can I say? 2018 has been a weird one. I feel like I’ve taken small steps forward, but have also been rocked miles back. This may be the first time I’m actually looking forward to a new year, and a fresh start.

Two weeks ago I spent my birthday gathering boxes and packing up the belongings of the girl I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with. Although it’s been months since she felt it best that we go our separate ways, poor timing has seen the holiday season filled with mortgage re-applications, legal fees, land title changes....emptiness. If she never ends up reading this, I hope she knows I still love her more than anything in this world, I think about her every day, but most importantly, I sincerely hope that she finds the happiness she has been so desperately searching for.

On a more positive note, my proudest moment was finally being able to find the strength to shed some light on my departure from the band. The amount of positivity and support expressed from all over the world helped grant me some much needed closure. I still have a long way to go, but I’m going to continue working on personal care, and setting aside time for myself in hopes of (potentially) trying to churn out some new music in 2019. I haven’t decided what would be more therapeutic: Sad Boi songs in the style of the latest autotuned SoundCloud rapper, or writing the most brutal/heavy/downtuned/dissonant/pissed/groovy music I’ve ever written. I have a feeling I know which of the two most of you would all prefer. Which ever way it goes, @thejoshuatravis, feel free to lend a hand here.

In summary (of what I am)…..[yeah yeah, bad joke] I have no idea what 2019 has in store for me. As scared as I am, I can’t shake the feeling that there’s something exciting around the corner. To all of you, the friends that have reached out and helped me through these past 12 months, I wish nothing but good luck and fortune. Let us be the ones to fly out the gate and kick 2019 in the fucking chest!

R.I.P. 2018.

Actually today was the final day of @poleexpo, and the finality of seeing everyone packing up was more bittersweet than ever. The weekend is always one extended high for me, meeting and teaching so many pole athletes from around the world and reconnecting with my friends. It’s sad to see everyone leaving. BUT: I will hopefully be on the road again very soon. ❤️⭐️💜 •

It was structured differently to the normal episodes, which helped shake the season up and give a great ending.
Bravo #issarae one of the best TV writers out there , I can't wait for season 3. I wonder who will be the inspiration to season 3, in season 1 it was littered with Drake lines as dialogue and this season it was Frank Ocean.
The final episode 'Hella perspective' is set out following the 3 main characters Lawrence , Molly and Issa ( in that order) a month in their lives . We follow Lawrence as we have all season trying to move on from his break up with Issa , some of his actions this season have been hard to defend ( even if you are on Lawrence's side) . In this episode he seems to finally be moving on , he has a new girlfriend that he actually cares about. His insecurities come in to play and he seems to have trust issues which is understandable , he seems to be fucking up all the time then he receives a miss call from Issa.
Molly seems to be in a good place after making a hella lot of mistakes during season 1 and 2 trying to find the perfect man to finally settle down with . Over the 30 days she going for job interviews as she feels under valued at work after finding out she gets paid less than her male colleague​ even though she put in more hours and works late nights. Finally concentrating on her career and doing what she should have done by following the money , Molly gets cosey with the guy she considers a homie. Molly gets a call!

Issa is all over the place! While following her for 30 days , her friends seem to be doing well and her life is a mess. After getting over her hoe faze ( as she calls it ). Issa has to move out because the rent has gone up and she can't afford the rent , she decides to move with her annoying brother. As she is packing up she has a yard sale to get rid of some stuff and she runs in to her neighbour bang , who tries to buy the couch her and Lawrence bought together. After the yard sale after deciding not to sell the couch she calls Lawrence and leaves a message saying he can have it and she will be out of the apartment so he doesn't have to see her.

Chapter 1 Part 1
Demi's pov: "Demi! Demi! Demi!" I'm about to get on stage and preform my heart out. I hear the crowd roaring my name. I can't contain myself anymore so I run out on stage. "How are you Los Angeles?" I ask and the crowd goes wild. "I'm so happy to be here with you guys this is gonna be so much fun!" I say and they jump up and down screaming. I laugh because they look like little worms wiggling around. My music starts playing and I sing my heart out. I run around, I flip my hair, and I even fall but I turn it into a knee slide to play it cool but I'm pretty sure my lovatics knew I fell. After about an hour and thirty minutes all my songs are over. "Goodnight Los Angeles I love you so much! You were amazing tonight! Stay strong, you're worth so much more then you think!" The crowd screams and I run off stage. "Time to change for meet and greet Dems." My manager holly says. I walk into my dressing room and change into a cute grunge outfit. I take a selfie in the bathroom then I'm on my way to the meet and greet. There is a very long line of lovatics waiting to take pictures with me. Once they notice me they start screaming. One by one I take pictures with every lovatic. Some crying and some laughing. They're all so perfect. About half way through the meet and greet a girl starts running towards me and I run to hide behind my body guard Max. "Hey! No running mama." She apologizes to him and myself. "It's ok I just get nervous when people are running towards me." I say and we take our picture. After the meet and greet is over I head to my dressing room to put on more comfortable cloths and everyone starts packing up everything. I go onto my tour bus and lay in my bed. "What I busy day." I say to myself. I decide to FaceTime my best friend Marissa to see what she's up to, since she wasn't able to come on your with me. She answers my call and her face pops up on my screen. "What's up brat?" She says smiling. "Nothin much hoe. Just finished a show. And now I'm bout to rap, cause um--" I get stuck and Marissa finishes it off, "cause your wack!" She says and we both start laughing. //Hope you guys like this 😁💕//

(And seriously considering becoming a minimalist in the process...🤣) And yes, I actually packed my Rae Dunn that haphazardly, because packing is tedious and #aintnobodygottimeforthat 🤷‍♀️
.
But on a slightly more serious note: This August marks 10 years in Southern California : 4 years at APU + 6 years working for the best family taking care of my most favorite kids in the world. (Cue the tears 😭)
.
And real talk, I’ve been sitting here typing, and erasing, and typing again for a solid 30 minutes (clearly I’ve got some time on my hands 😏) but I just don’t even have words to sum up what the last 10 years in this place I’ve called Home has meant. So I’ll just say leaving here + moving to Phoenix is the definition of bittersweet.
.
Bitter because I am leaving so many wonderful things + people I love (I’m not not crying.)
.
Sweet because there is SO MUCH possibility ahead! EM will be my main focus + new (bigger) studio space with lots of room to grow! And bonus, my family will now be 30 minutes away vs 5 hours away!
.
So come August, I’ll be packing up and saying goodbye to this sweet life I’ve known for the last 10 years + saying hello to a new one!
.
If you’re in Phx, let’s be friends because the number of people I know can be counted on less than 10 fingers 😂 + if you’re in Phx, do you love your area? Looking for neighborhood recommendations! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

Tomorrow it will be a trip to the chiropractor and spending time with my partner before cracking on with the packing again at the weekend :) x

We’ve got no agenda or idea really to be honest. 3 hours in we stopped at a coastal shop and a huge staffy called Lola ran into the van and jumped on the bed. Then Marley stepped in dog shit and walked it through the van trying to get Lola out. Cleaning up took some time 😫 We arrived eventually at Treachery Seal Rocks and set up in the most beautiful spot. Quiet. Only a few other people around. I decided to light some incense in the van and set off the fire alarm, cue shattered serenity. I thought we would grab some more supplies on the way but we forgot so grilled cheese toasties and salt and vinegar chips were dinner 🙌🏻 The stars at night were incredible. We slept 10 hours, and woke, made porridge on our little outdoor stove, made coffee and hot milo, drank lots of water, painted, read. Was heaven. Packing up I said to Marley ‘can you fill up our water bottle at that tap there?’ And she comes back and announces you can’t drink that water. I explain ‘what?? How do you know?’ And she points to the sign above the tap ‘no drinking water’. Which is the tap I’ve been getting our water from since we arrived’ 😬
We are now at South West Rocks, and it’s beautiful but also so windy we can’t cook our fish outside as planned. So now it’s dinner at the local pub. Road lyfe 👍😎 I’ll post all sorts on our stories, stay tuned...wish us luck, good god we need it 😂😂😂

34 years young
I work from home doing macro work and am still working part time at my salon until we move in a month- yes packing up my life as well right now.
I measure my food every meal. I eat veggies daily. I take my vitamins. I drink my water.
I still find time to keep my body in motion 4-6 times a week. I’m thankful for a quiet apartment gym where I can bring Tristan while he naps-the timing has to be perrrrfect ha! But how blessed am I to have a 👼🏻 who sleeps hours in between eating (I feed him 6 times a day🥛 also) and cuddling and can sleep through ANYTHING. #beyondblessed -

There is no “secret wizardry” to health and fitness. No one is “luckier” than anyone else. No one is more “gifted”. Some do it and some don’t. Some reason their way out of the effort, and some won’t. Some stay focused and some stray. Everyone’s journey is their own- but if you want something why don’t you give it your all? I always want to be better today than yesterday and I take no excuses from myself- period, point blank. I know my body- I know how to eat (learning more through this process) and I know I have to trust the process and my current limits. That’s the key. Consistently trusting your process and not letting anything change your mind in the moment. Prioritize and execute. If I can do it, ANYONE can. #healthandfitness #postpartumfitness #fitpregnancy #macrocoach #instafit #fitfam #TandME👼🏻

This year has been full of lessons but the most memorable one took place shortly after this first picture was taken. To make a long story short, I was on a solo overnight trip in the ADK pursuing the 46. The temperature was in the 90s and I had already hiked one high peak earlier in the morning before packing up the gear I left at my camp (~30-40lbs) to hike the 3 peaks that made up the Seward mountain range. Of the 28 high peaks I had already climbed this ascent trail was by far the most unrelenting and grueling route I had been on (second picture for 3+ miles) and I was consuming water much faster than I planned. So about 2/3s up the first of three mountains, I ran out. Kinda problematic but I compromised by agreeing to forgo the 3rd peak to descend to water. Very shortly after I developed severe leg cramps and knew I was in heat exhaustion territory. I also couldn’t stop moving forward because the black flies were relentless. To add insult to injury, I also couldn’t locate the only unmarked herd path that descended the range. Since there is only two ways on and off the mountain range (the way I came up and the route I was looking for) this was also a problem. As the day grew later I was going into survival mode for the first time and didn’t know if I was going to make it off that mountain (at least that day if at all). I eventually ran into two hikers, Mike and Peter, who kindly gave me some water and pointed out the small Cairn to the trail down. I am forever in their debt. Lessons learned: Research and prepare then prepare some more, calm during crisis is invaluable (solution focused instead of problem oriented), when nature forces you to look in the mirror learn as much as you can, there are plenty of good people out there.
.

May this new year bring many more adventures, life lessons, and higher mountains. Happy New Year!

As a freelancer, it's impossible to rely on anything to be on my own time, and my wants have always had to be open to flexibility for others needs. In order to take the time I need to live the way I do, I now work as little as possible for others. I'm within the majority of people that *have to* work to survive, but I have yet to work any job that has moved me onto a path that I've wanted to stick to. I have explored, yet am still stunted within a poorly designed system. While my lifestyle has altered dramatically over the years, it is worth it in every way. This spring I'm taking back some time in exchange of trying to work in the system, packing up and moving my life contents to storage, and going on a short meander. I'm gonna be out in Arizona briefly, swing up to a national monument in Utah, drive across Texas to the only natural formed lake there, meet some newborns, see pals, and learn more about some of the topics I've been studying. I may miss watching New York slowly open up, again, but since there are mineral rights at stake within many of the areas I aim to observe now, I gotta hit the road. In saying this, many of you know that I don't often leave. I find that the ease in varieties of transportation has caused a lot of damage to the way we interact with air/land/water areas. Paying attention to what ground I have been treading on day-to-day since January of 2002, has formed a deep love for it beyond the skyscrapers and the happen$tance that most are lured to New York for. It's home and I'll be here for weddings and all that this summer, but I'm seeking something different for a few months. I may live on a boat in a marina and get back to a dream I had when I moved here when I was 19. Time's an illusion, but don't give it away.

I'll still be open to running prints by request til the beginning of May, then pretty sporadically after that! Lead time is a few weeks, and the process is lengthy. Details should you wanna know more via katherinecotes.com/twentytwo

So we aren't staying in CA. We decided to stay in Illinois for a year MAYBE two I'm not sure yet. I'm bummed out but at the same time we found an amazing condo in a really good location.Amir got a new Toyota 2017. Bless! He needed a new car anyways lol
I went to the drs because of my insomnia and turns out I'm clinically depressed. I don't know how you go to the drs for insomnia and come out being diagnosed with severe depression? Life's crazy. Amir is coming back in 10 days and I have never been more excited ! Oh also Mariana cut my hair and then I cut it some more and I decided to stop cutting it because if I didn't I knew I'd just end up bald or with a pixie haircut. I really don't want to pack. I hate packing especially because I have so much clothes. I also hate airports. I was planning on going camping for my birthday but I decided not to. I was thinking a lot about all my friends who are now acquaintances. And how their lives are going. What they're doing and if they're happy? If they still think about me? Sometimes I wanna just hit them up and start a convo but I'm the worst person when it comes to convos unless I'm really comfortable with you. I wanted to invite some of them to a get together for my birthday just to catch up and laugh about old memories. But for all I know they're busy living their lives. I'm excited to go back to Illinois because Amir bought us RIOTFEST tickets and PARAMORE IS GONNA BE PERFORMING ❤️
But yeah that's my life update. I might have left some things out but it's probably because I forgot. If you need a new song to listen to I recommend Dream State... by Lucy Dacus
Also Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root has been stuck in my head a lot lately
Ok CYA ✌🏼

As far as I’m concerned, this was my last visit to what used to be Rolling Stone Indonesia headquarters. So I took one final look around before whoever rents the place renders it unrecognisable.

1. Here’s me outside the office, waiting for a car to take my stuff home.

2. The venue area. Still blows my mind that I got to see so many great bands in my office backyard.

3. The main stage. Some of the biggest names in Indonesian music got to perform on it, during our events or someone else’s. Even I got to play there!

4. The cafe, which closed down last April. The doors are locked so I couldn’t go inside. One of the things I’ll miss is looking for bands to come and play at our events. Sore’s post-hiatus comeback gig was just one of many memorable shows on that stage.

5. The swimming pool. More than 11 years of working in this building and I never swam in it because I can’t swim. (There was also a pool at the original Rolling Stone Indonesia on Bangka Raya. Never swam there either.) 6. The staircase leading to Editorial on the third floor. Every day the members of God Bless would stare back at us as we went up and down.

7. Offices for the website, the design department, the editor in chief and managing editor, and my desk where I mostly spent my days trying to overcome writer’s block and failing miserably.

8. The main hall, the corner of which is occupied by giant-sized versions of the magazines that were hung along the entrance wall. You can also see framed magazines on the walls.

9. I put off retrieving my belongings for three months because I dreaded the prospect of sifting through twelve years’ worth of stuff I couldn’t be bother to take home, packing it and hauling it down from the third floor. Much to my surprise, the maintenance staff did the sifting, packing and hauling for me, so huge thanks for that. Now those boxes are at home among decades’ worth of stuff I can’t be bothered throwing out.

And with that, I bid a final farewell to Rolling Stone Indonesia. Can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather have spent the best years of my life at.

I don’t know if my hectic days are #mumlife or just #amylife 🤔 this morning I was rushing around packing Skye’s lunch, getting the girls ready, loading up the car, hanging out a load of washing etc... finally got the girls in the car, 5 mins before school starts, and as I pulled the boot closed I caught the cord to the garage door and disconnected the remote control 🤷‍♀️ so I’m stuck trying to manually lift the garage door up while both girls are yelling at me about things they need that very instant. Rush Skye to school 10 mins late and the teacher asks for a photo of me and Skye together... “now! What for?!” Is what I think before deciding it doesn’t matter, I don’t have time. So I smiled for the photo - in my active wear, no make up on and Mum bun 👌 I then picked Prim up (she didn’t want to leave) and fought with her to the car. Raced to my appointment with my surgeon and made it only 3 mins late! Today is also the day I decided that delivering catalogs would be a good hobby and for some pocket money while I walk... so I quickly stopped home for a couple of things... remembered the garage door 🙄 drove to the start of my round and loaded up the pram, a backpack and duffel bag with all the catalogs- smashed it out in under 2 hours and miss Primrose even napped for a good amount of it 🙌 home to get some lunch and clean the kitchen before school pick up. Just about to leave and Prim decides to empty the dog’s bowls everywhere and then do a poo... I then had to power walk to the school and got there just in time! Once home I brought in some washing, got Skye a snack and hung out some more washing... and then Prim lost her shit! Why? I don’t know! She was just screaming. She didn’t want me to touch her, she didn’t want anything, she was just really really upset... and while she was having a meltdown Skye decided that she absolutely needed some toast urgently! Fun times! Hubby came home early, order resumed, Skye fell asleep at 5pm and is still asleep, I completed the girls passport applications and got 9/10 on a uni test... #adayinthelife #hotmessmum

We usually leave things out until January 6, the epiphany, but this year we were ready to get it all done on December 29. ⠀
.⠀
In the the process of packing, though, I hesitated on this little book. I've had it for years, but this year I connected with it in a deeper, more thought-provoking way. It hit me right where I needed to be hit. ⠀
.⠀
So intead of packing it up with all the ornaments and stockings, I put it gently on my shelf. I get the feeling I'll be reading it some more in the days ahead, as I continue to contemplate the gift that came at Christmas. ⠀
.⠀
I'm thankful that Christmas can stay in our hearts all year round!⠀

UPDATE!! I spent yesterday and today packing up all the orders that didn’t include the exclusives bundle (lots of you have been shopping our awesome End of Summer Sale!) and putting aside the orders for these because I wanted to make sure we had a really awesome mix of our exclusives and enough to go around in the packages. This morning I will start printing the labels!! Remember, these are BLIND mystery bundles and I have no idea what’s in each one when I put the label on it, so we can’t take any requests. BUT, you can request a newborn bundle in your order comments because I did have some HTF newborns and size 1 duo wraps. ❤️ Also, some of you bought the $45 or $75 bundles and didn’t put any order requests in there. Just to clarify on that: if you choose those bundles, you’ll get a great mix of stuff valued at more than what you paid. You can definitely put requests for things like color/brand preferences, snap vs. hook and loop, sizes, etc. We do our best to accommodate and we don’t ship those blind so you have a good chance at getting something you need from what we have in stock.
All of the bundles and sales will be going on through Monday, Sept. 3rd or while supplies last! I’m super excited to see what you all get!! Link in profile if you want to shop 🛍 #clothdiapers #makeclothmainstream #spraypal #thirsties #lalabyebaby #spraypalexclusive

This week is my last week in Italy, and after five weeks here I’m not sure I’m ready to leave...being here has softened me, freed me, slowed me and I didn’t know I needed this until now. I arrived stressed about my life after packing up my apartment in Paris without another one to go to, putting so much pressure on myself to work, produce and *figure everything out* in Paris. I thought I was coming here to bunker down on work, writing and planning, but life had other ideas for me it seems, so much better than my own. I’m leaving with a lot of newfound peace and trust in the process of life and some exciting questions and open doors in front of me. I hope I can take everything I’ve learnt and felt here with me and spend more time back in Italy in this special place too 🌻 #thetravellinglight in #marche #italy #findthelight #sunflowerpower pic: ❤️ @deareverest @marchetourism

So we’re packing up our desert sanctuary and saying bye bye to the USA. Its time to go home to Aus and then onto..... LONDON! It’s been a wild four years for me— whoa. Those who’ve followed my journey know how much the USA challenged me on a Soul level, while also being so good to me in this particular lifetime. I learned a lot, about geographical resonance, radically trusting my life, and how sometimes life wants our Soul in certain places to either anchor light or retrieve it. I wrote a deep AF, long post about this but it was waaa-hayyyy too much for the gram so I posted it in @theearthessco app where long, expressive, raw AF convos about past lives and deep shit belongs. For those in Aus and NZ, I’ll see you later this year and next year, London and Europe, we are going to party— and by party you know I really mean eat the pastries, create communities, build brand new things and just casually invite heaven to make Earth its home. Light has been planted in the USA, time to retrieve some more for myself. X

So, #trueconfessions, I may or may not have an irrational fear of public libraries ( #addittothelist 🤷🏼‍♀️). After packing up EVERY book I own (more details to come), I was horrified and completely embarrassed. So, this summer, I am on a book-buying freeze and requiring myself to use our amazing local public library. In addition to this stack of books, I’ve been downloading free audiobooks like it’s my job. With lots of “extra” time with summer, I’ve finished 15 books so far. I’ve read absolutely 0 teaching books (the “Mindset” book acted as a Diet Coke coaster for three weeks before I returned it) and it’s been glorious. (You can check out some of the books I’ve been reading in my IG profile by clicking on the #Summer circle.) I still break into a sweat when I consider going to the library each week 🙈 but by the end of the summer I’ll be a champ. Plus, I HAVE SPENT ZERO DOLLARS ON BOOKS IN JUNE! 😱 So, here’s to a summer full of less - less spending, less fear, and less busy. So tell me friends, what is your summer going to look like?? #SummerofLess

Today we're taking our exercise out, packing in the perks that come with it.
Basic fat loss equation = energy in vs energy out.
The more energy you exert, the more fuel you require. Whilst lifting heavy is great, and sun salutations are soothing the best way to increase your move factor is by simply moving your legs. Be it on a bike, or on your feet it's simple to squeeze in an easy to do. Here's some reasons why we're all for the outdoors: - You get to enjoy the outdoors. Steady state cardio is a great way to explore the parks in your city/town. Research has shown that exercising outside in nature has a positive effect on our mood and psychological health. With the current sunny weather you also get to soak up some extra vitamin D!
- Lifting weights is important to build and maintain muscle tissue, however getting your heart rate up regularly with some cardio improves your cardiovascular health and increases your stamina. - You can run at your own pace so it can be very social as well, keeping you motivated to go. - It increases your overall energy expenditure, so there’s more room to have a treat every now and then and you’re more likely to keep a healthy weight.

So tomorrow, we challenge you to head out on a run, or jump off the tube a stop earlier and walk your way to your Tupp. If you're inspired, why not repeat the next day? Or even consider pulling the bike out of storage and spicing up your commute that way?

See you on the roads!

And how beautiful is this flatlay by @steffer_knits?! She always takes the best photos, and is a huge fan of #rubberstamps, she has quite a few fron my shop 😅😘. The stickers are also from me, but those will be available until the end of next week.

On the homefront, hubs has 1 more full week of work and I'm packing up all non-essentials starting today!! I started with the pantry and kitchen stuff, and will finish that, along with our bathroom, this weekend. I know we still have 3 weeks before we hit the road, but I'm HORRIBLE under pressure or when I feel rushed 🙄😬. So starting early is a NECESSITY if I want to stay sane. Which is great for me, but even better for those that have to live with me. My husband. Haha!

Some place with simple living, a co-op/barter system in place, and most importantly, a safe and innocent life for our kids? I don’t know how much more of this I can handle. I don’t know what it’s been like where you all live, but every single day here there seems to have been at least one arrest for copycat threats since the Parkland tragedy. It makes me sick. I’ve sent a twelve year old to school who was in tears because she was scared. To go to school. Social media, and a phone in every pocket, makes it worse. There are so many rumors. It’s like a game of telephone. It’s enough to make your head spin. And in the middle of it all, there’s my girls, being dropped off to armed cops (🙏 thank you, ccso) and hearing police radios outside of drawn shades in class. So, yeah. I’m about this close to packing up the family and hitting the road. I can’t promise them they will live forever, but I hate that this is their childhood. So who’s in? I just have one problem. I have no skill set to offer this commune. Take me in as the honorary documentologist (definitely made that up) of our utopian society? Pretty please?
