New Styling Work for Jordan de Ruiter Lingerie

My gal Jordan sent me a text a while back with a photo of this peacock chair, I knew exactly what she wanted to do, lets plan a photo shoot! This whole vision came about quite naturally and spontaneously, as I believe most creative projects go.

A Ritual for Uncertain Times

Here's the hard truth: life is uncertain all the time. We can make goals, colour coordinate our vision boards, have a 5 year plan but things rarely work out the way we think they are going to. It is good to have a vision, it keeps you grounded and moving towards something but the hard lesson is learned through moving through the uncertain times.

June New Moon

We have arrived in the summer solstice and with it ushers in the first new moon of the summer. This new moon is in Cancer, the water sign ruled by the moon. This sign is all about the emotions and we will be feeling all the feels.

Blue Jean Baby

I am so excited to share this styled shoot, photographed by my creative partner Kelsey Davis. We bonded over our love of the California coast, vintage styling and our favourite blogger muses who live amongst the palms.

Southern Road Trip

I met my roommate Kirstie at work after we bonded over our love of cheesy tv shows and if Zoe and Wade will ever end up together (Hart of Dixie). We cemented our roommate status on a mini road trip up to our friend's cabin, asking all the essential questions before you decide to live with someone: how do you feel about organized chaos? and do you compost and if not are you willing to learn?! It was safe to say that another road trip was in our future and our love of Zoe Hart's magical life in the south was a clear indication of where we would end up.

Savannah

Savannah stole my heart the moment we started our journey from North Carolina to Georgia. As we drove through Georgia the landscape started to shift into marshes and swamps, hints of spanish moss to come. This city exudes gothic romance, Victorian houses are the only houses and you can feel the history and creepiness of the place over every cobblestone.

Spring Equinox

Spring has arrived and as I type this my window is open in the kitchen, sun is streaming through and my wild flowers on my farm table are catching the light. That transition between winter and summer is so rough! I tried to focus on finishing projects, I want to start fresh with new creative ventures in April, so you'll be hearing some rumblings about a short film that is almost done (watch out for my film Harvest Moon).

Jamaica Love

Everything about my trip to Jamaica was magic. The way I received it, the people I met and had soulful conversations on our veranda with and the lush and vibrant scenery was all magic. You can feel the mysticism when you are there, maybe it's the vibe of the people, or the history, or maybe it's the gorgeous landscape and the pastel sunsets, so much beauty its hard to digest it all.

High Vibing

High vibing has become part of my daily vocabulary, so much so that even my roommate has adopted it and it has become a normal term at her work! I really feel like I came up with the term (I know I didn't ha) and it means getting yourself into a higher vibration, turning it into a verb: high vibing. So what does that really mean?

Self Love For Valentine's Day

Let's cultivate self love every day and then remind ourselves on the love day itself, Valentine's Day. It's taken me many years to do this thing called self love that so many of my spiritual gurus preach, and preach they should! It has become a daily cultivation, takes work and care, as it shall be, because when we can love ourselves truly we can love others better, we can love our planet better, we can love and be love.

Realigning For The New Year

As we step into this new year as it is with every new year we want to grow and expand, take the lessons, the scars, the failures and the high vibing moments and transform them in a new beginning. Instead of resolutions I am working towards a realigning.

Eve Cork

I get oh so excited when my passion for the environment and fashion collide. When a fashion brand puts environmental consideration at the forefront of their design they are creatively changing the landscape of the fashion industry. I love this concept of creation based firmly in creating a sustainable world, everyone wins when we do this!

Friendsgiving for Society6

I was lucky enough to escape the city for a weekend and travel to my dear friend Katie’s lakefront cabin on Lake Huron. It was the perfect November weekend, sunny and warm, all the fall colours and a stunning pastel pink sunset that would leave anyone in awe. Since the weather gods were in our favour I decided to host our friendsgiving dinner party on the beach!

October New Moon

I love planning my new moon parties for my friends every month. We missed the last one because I was in California so we are doing an extra special one on Halloween. Margaritas, Practical Magic and our moon ritual. The energy from Halloween and the new moon on October 30th is perfect for setting intentions for this fall and winter season.

Big Sur Love

Ahhh Big Sur is like your first sip of coffee in the morning or the first fall day with the perfect smell of crisp air and the coziness of a sweater. It feels really magical to me, and I know I use that word alot, I love the idea of magic it makes life that much sweeter and mystical, and in this case I believe this place is magic.

Joshua Tree

I have been wanting to go to Joshua Tree for as long as I can remember. I've had this longing to experience the landscape of the desert, the dusty colours, the barren space, the sparse plants and trees that live and thrive in hot weather. It always pulled me in like a past life where I would ride in on my horse in a cascading old west dress.

Strawberry Full Moon Party

Today there is a full moon in Aquarius, with this water illumination and a feminine vision what better way to celebrate than to release our styled Strawberry Full Moon photoshoot. The full moon has been celebrated and incorporated in ritual for well... many moons!

Sustainable Living: Food

I wanted to start a new series on the blog to dive deeper into a topic I am extremely passionate about: sustainable living. It is a lifestyle that aims to reduce the use of the earth's natural resources in an effort to cultivate the earths bounty, less waste and more conscious living practices.

Styling For Society6

I am really REALLY excited to share the styling work I did for Society6. They have the cutest prints, made by designers from all over the globe. I worked with a truly amazing team of creatives for this back to school style guide (I remember those campus days ha!)

Summer Styling

Lately I've been craving creativity in any form. I find myself anxious if I'm not doing, and my patience for projects is wearing thin. This is definitely counter intuitive to everything I've been working on and it's the summer, it's a time to really enjoy these beautiful days and just have fun.
