“The wound is the place where the light enters you.” – RUMI

I was always a bit envious of those who could achieve that “peace of mind.” It seems silly to say, but I wanted to do or try anything that would help me to achieve that goal. Ultimately, I achieved peace of mind through yoga, and have become stronger both mentally and physically.

Free People Movement held an amazing event that inspired people to get outdoors. A hike by REI and yoga flow by Core Power, they brought together over 150 people in Griffith Park to share 1 thing: the love for movement and being active.

I’m no yogi or do I name myself to be, but I love that Free People inspired this many of us to come practice together in the great outdoors. Yoga helps me to focus on one thing at a time during the practice which I therefore carry outside of my practice. Each time I complete a yoga class, I feel more mindful of all my actions during and therefore following. Yoga helps me slow down and set my intentions, helping me feel calm and clear minded. Thank you Free People for this opportunity, this chance to feel the power of movement through yoga.

Special thank you to Core Power, REI, Sweet Leaf, and Sun Life Organics!

Changes

“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different.” C.S. Lewis

Without a doubt, change has been the most powerful element in my life as of the last year. I look back on all the changes that have occurred in my life and can’t believe how much has changed, especially the people that have come in and out of my life. I always wondered if it was me who changed, or perhaps it was them? Friends, lovers, or whatever the case was, I realize we both changed over time. Nothing happens overnight. It’s good to accept change, and move forward from it and not dwell on things we can’t control. It’s nice to find peace in knowing that change is possible though, and it can be a very good thing. People can change, outcomes can change, the weather changes.

“She changed me. She changed the books I read, the music I listened to. She changed the way I walked and the way I talked. She changed the way I looked at the world. The night sky, the moon, and every star. She changed the way my heart could feel. She showed me a love so deep I never thought even existed. She’s gone now, but the love isn’t. She change me, in to me.”

Stone Cold Fox always gets it right with just the right amount of va-va-voom. Their maxi dresses are perfection. The most important thing about wearing something like this to me is how you feel when you wear it. You should feel beautiful and sexy. Beachwood Canyon has that old Hollywood feel. Snapped some photos on a friends fire escape while in the neighborhood cause the weather was too nice not to. Then headed out for the night.

It really is hard to stay indoors in So Cal. Thankfully I spent yesterday outside taking in California’s insane winter weather (75 in December? Amazing). Canyon drives, beaches, salty air, coastal views, golden sunsets, it’s seriously endless. Dress by the lovely Mary Meyers of Novella Royale. One of my favorite designers, Mary’s line is inspired by her, “reduce, reuse, recycle” design philosophy. Her line is made of the most amazing cotton blend and she sticks mainly to the 60s/70s style I love. This dress is one of my favorites of this season, mainly because the cut and fit. Love NR, love love love.

So out about 80 miles past Palm Desert lies a magical little place called Salvation Mountain. Ever since I saw pictures of it years ago, I’ve always wanted to go here but never had the time to check it out. It’s located in “Slab City” which is a free RV oasis for squatters. I was curious to see the man made mountain painted rubbish and hopefully understand why so many people hype about going to visit.

It truly is a sight to see. The caves and inner workings of the mountain make it one remarkable piece of art, one that is for kids and adults. It’s painted and adorned with Bible verses, murals and more. Local artist Leonard Knight, created this mountain in 2000 out of adobe, straw and gallons of liters of paint. Truly a sight to see, I took a day with my sister to cruise around the area, walk barefoot and check it out. Surprisingly it was a nice day (for January in the desert) so this Rat & Boa sheer skirt with a holey top from Urban did the trick. Wore a swimsuit under the skirt, skirts kinda risqué otherwise. 😉
