Jungle jardin

My balcony seen here over a year ago has become a little green haven where I always feel at peace.

In the summer the foliage makes me feel like I am in the tropics and in the winter by the heat of our portable bbq I've spend many hours reading or just sitting doing nothing. I can't wait to have even more Buddhist flags to create a play of light and shade, its a constant work in progress this yearning to bring the jungle into my home.

Here are a few photos of my everyday attire around my plant babies, nothing special just a few pictures taken right after I'd been pottering around rearranging the greens. Life isn't about always being dolled up for photos, sometimes comfy old clothes and dirt under finger nails feel better than being 24/7 selfie ready.

Yes, I am wearing four anklets at the same time and I think its too little, I yearn to have heaps of silver on my hands and feet at all times.

Hope everyone has a wonderful start to the week!

Sea spray

There are days when one goes to the beach and the weather is just right, not too sunny so no hordes of tourists, just cloudy enough to make wonderful patterns in the sky and ensure a spectacular sunset.

Nature puts on such stupendous shows for us, it has me awestruck every single time.

Water falls and hikes

Spend a wonderful weekend at the mountains, chasing water falls and climbing rock faces and had the best time camping. Sometimes wonderful memories are made away from civilization and feeling free, uninhibited but awed by the sheer beauty that surrounds us.

Warning: Its a picture heavy post but what can I say, waterfalls are my favourites.

Ofcourse camping calls for tried and tested comfortable clothes like these ying yang shorts, soft tee shirt and a wool cardie with my trusted Palladiums.

Indigo block print and bikes

I love it when I don't have to bother about dressing up for anything or looking proper, just wear and be the way I want to be. An indigo block print maxi kurta from Anokhi, heaps of silver jewellery, carpet boots, fabric bag from South America, an Enfield bullet and the cutest puppy friend.

Ride the lightning

I embroidered these shorts a year ago because I was astounded by the amount of denim cut-offs I had and I didn't think I would wear them as much as a plain pair. But I forgot that wearing neutrals and all that nonsense about minimalism is complete nonsense to me..

So here we have a vintage Metallica tee fluttering over a pair of hand embroidered denim cut-offs and boots I can't seem to take off. Hope March has been treating you well, happy almost Friday world.

Sack dresses and dog walks

Yes, I've turned into one of those people who just flood their social media posts and feeds with pictures of dogs and cats..I don't even have a pet yet; now imagine when I do how much worse this habit is going to get. Eeps!

Yes there are a couple of pictures of me wearing a flowy cotton sack with the boots I am obsessed with and a bright woven bag, I mean there is only so much thought given to outfit choices when a bundle of madness is jumping at one's toes wanting to go outdoors?

Have a wonderful weekend people.

In this house the cat is incharge

Nothing beats a day in a crochet wisp, boots and embroidered bag indulging in some feline loving. I live for relaxed days like these. Happy Womens' day, I know it sucks we just have one day a year that celebrates us but entire lifetimes of misogyny therefore I treat all my days like we're Goddesses.

Anywho google's dedicated a celebratory doodle to us today and I want to wish all the ladies out there fighting daily in the face of patriarchy "WE RULE", "WE'RE AWESOME" and "PEOPLE WHO THINK OTHERWISE ARE SCUM"..

Have a wonderful weekend and I want to tell the awesome women in my life I'd be nothing without you and Yes! I mean you, Mummy..I'd truly be nothing without you and I hope you see your own worth and demand being treated with love and respect.

Puppy love and bell-bottoms

Been spending a lot of time at the dog-park and running around keeping up with my four legged friends. Sometimes I do the whole blue jeans, silk singlet, black cross-body and minimal jewellery thing but more often than not the jeans are super flared. Hope everyone's had a lovely February, here's to a wonderful week. Happy Tuesday folks.
