Confessions of a Bohemian Fashionista – Going Boho… It’s an Inside Job!

Hey Boho Beauties,

When you remember something sweet, it’s a crime not to share it.

A couple of years ago, I did a 30-day challenge. Attend yoga every day for 30 days straight. It seemed simple—all I had to do was plop my yoga mat down (back row, center), do some downward dogs and try not to wobble too much in tree pose.

It happened one evening, mid-challenge. I was sitting there post sweat, one eye open, wondering what all of these ‘yogi’s’ could be thinking about (other than grocery lists, next weeks to-do’s, or that fight they had last week.) They all just seemed so relaxed, so together.

As I left the studio, there she was.  I thought I’d seen her here before—or maybe it was at that café or in the market. In a glimpse she flashed me a crooked smile, shot a peace sign my way and danced off.

She didn’t have to say it. There was a glitter from below her eyes that told me she’d walked along the ocean’s edge, kissed an elephant in Bali and Om’d until her voice went soft. You could tell she was a light-worker. She’d been through tough situations and come out lighter and shinier.

She was so Boho.

It’s been years since I saw that girl who seemed like a real live goddess. She was practically wearing a crown. Since that sweaty night I’ve mastered my tree pose, learned to keep both eyes closed in my favorite yoga poses and most mornings I sing to myself.

It was one of those mornings today; I could feel it in the air.  Something stopped me in the mirror before I left for work. There she was staring back me, the soft glitter under her eyes, the divine intention in her smile. It hit me, hard—that boho girl is me, that boho girl is you.

I’m wearing my Divine Wisdom Mala as I think back on that night, and remembering that going boho is an inside job. So go ahead, boho goddesses, flash your beautiful smiles at a stranger and remember you’re divine.

Peace, Love and Magic from Bohemia – xx

Confessions of a Boho Fashionista

Hey Boho Beauties,

I’m warming up with a cup of sweet cinnamon tea and I thought I’d open up my moleskin and pop down some intentions for the weekend. That’s right bellas—it’s not just for New Years or special occasions, the power of intention works all the time.

The greatest time for goddesses to set intentions is in the soft light of the morning, while your dreams are still fresh and your heart is wide open.

It’s winter-time in Canada, but a true gypsy keeps her summer-heart all year round. That’s why as I write this down, I’m reflecting on the spirit of the summer passed and the nights I spent watching dragon flies dance (just like we gypsies do) and the Super moon that lit up the night sky.

A Super moon is a special phenomenon that happens very rarely. This chance occurrence creates a serious sense of magic and creativity. In ancient times, beautiful princesses who adorned themselves in crystals and gemstones would sit under the moon, cast their dreams below its light and pray for the creative genius that would spark from the moon’s light.

The Super moon does more than just spark creativity—it wraps a warm sheath of unconditional love and divine power on the beauty who dances under its light. When you’re under the glow of the super moon, you trust in your creative nature without a shadow of a doubt. This is because the Super moon provides unconditional love that guides us on our bohemian paths.

In the chill of the winter, when the sky is dark and the moon is nowhere to be found, I’m wearing my Supermoon Mala and setting my intentions on the divine creativity that lives deep within us all.

Put on your Super Moon Mala’s beauties, remember your summer-heart and go light some creative sparks.

Peace, Love and Magic from Bohemia
