Fountain of Joy

The retail leg of Kindred Spirits is closing down…..and here’s why….

06df8782a5013132948e2debe0375f7a

With wings she flies

 

I love being surrounded by beautiful things and everyday I am grateful I can send away pieces to you I have sourced or designed with one thing in mind-did I pay it forward? The answer is always yes!

I followed my heart and opened Kindred Spirits for the conscious consumer, for the people who love a story and for anyone who simply likes to do something good… AND it worked and I have enjoyed every minute of it! I was able to work with organisations who continue to inspire me and make magic everyday and then this happened….

We moved to the country and everything changed for me.  I expanded Kindred Spirits into homewares, I travelled to Indonesia, met with artisans, designed and saw a product  come to life. I was exactly where I wanted to be but not where I needed to be.

During this time a radical shift was taking place, merging the inside with the outside. Everything was making sense and connecting and I knew where and what I needed to do. My Kundalini had awakened and it was like nothing I have ever felt before. I was spilling over with happiness and every path I had ever taken, any decision I had ever followed through with and the people I had met all held a purpose. This was a moment of profound bliss for me, shedding of old skin and awakening to a rebirth.

I work closely with my higher guides, crystal energy, nature, lunar cycles and the universe.  I have completed many short courses over the last 18mths to assist me on my personal and professional path and it’s enlightenting, it all helps and I love to learn.

With such a radical shift, I am harnessing this creative power and breathing life into old concepts, therefore, the retail leg of Kindred Spirits will be closing down. Everything else will remain as is! Kindred Spirits will have a new product on offer but that’s another blog!

I am studying at ISCD and following my love of Interiors, colour and creativity. I have met many inspiring people through this journey alone and I feel blessed in this endeavour. I have faced my fears, let go of self doubt and I have come out ready to do things that I never thought I was capable of.

My professional path is full and my family life is just as full! 3 kids and a husband who works away. My husband, Mat, is also a little crazy like me (he would disagree) and when we get together our ideas come to life. Mat is studying Civil Engineering, works full time and is about to begin a build on our new business. We would also like to start a build on our family home. It does sound mad, but somehow it all works. To top it off we are planting foundations to move overseas next year.  We have planned this for sometime (years) and it is slowly falling into place, all based around a school we love, freedom to explore, expand professionally, spiritually and feed the soul through meditation, good food and being with nature. I am so excited for our kids.

As you can see, we have welcomed a lot into our life and I am finding the retail side of Kindred Spirits taking on a life, that doesn’t involve the new person I have become and I am moving forward with my greater purpose in mind. I can no longer provide the energy the retail leg requires and deserves.

“She trusts the universe to take care of her with whatever she needs”

So, with the feeling of ‘spring time’ in the land of Kindred Spirits- awakened, bright, heightened and everything thriving, you will receive up to 50% off all the beautiful stock in store.

There is no discount code-everything is marked down for your convenience.

Thank you for your support BUT remember, I’m not going anywhere, everything else stays the same. …well kind of. I’ll be back to share what’s new, I’ll need your help on this one too xxxx

“Inner happiness has wisdom built into it, it guides the flow of our everyday desires to greater joy and spiritual fulfillment. Gently experience yourself as happy and pleased, so the flow of desire becomes an inner expression of happiness and your spiritual growth will unfold as the path of healthy desire not self-sacrifice or denial. “- David Bennett

60 Seconds With…….Gypsy Stone

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

“We are fearless because we listen to our hearts. Rebellious wonderers who love the ocean, the grass and the sky at night. Here because something needs to happen, because we are the revolution.”-Gypsy Stone.

Ever wanted to know more about the effervescent, creative, earth loving goddess behind the Gypsy Stone brand? Let me introduce you to Lizz Pennings, fashion photographer, stylist and Creative Director of Gypsy Stone……..

 

Gypsy_stone_loves-17

    My Gypsy life motto…..

Aspire to inspire! Be present. Live wild and don’t sweat the little things :)

   Crochet or Lace…..

Crochet over lace, why not!

Gypsy_stone_loves-15

   I would never change my…..

Life experiences, decisions made and the people I’ve met. I am a HUGE believer in everything happening for a reason. Trust the universe and learn to let go of that control!

 

  The most exciting part about Gypsy Stone….

Making it whatever I want it to be and not having to answer to anyone, ever! Gypsy Stone is my freedom and my ultimate goal is to make Gypsy Stone, a leader in the paradigm shift that we need to see in the fashion landscape by spreading a message deeply connected to a lifestyle of love, freedom, health and happiness!

 

Gypsy_stone_loves-2

 When the sun shines I…….

Dance! And cannot believe how blessed I am to live where I live!

3 fashion essentials……

Dusty boots, soft vintage tee’s, confidence and a huge smile! Wait.. that’s 4.. is that cheating? haha

Gypsy_stone_loves-11

   My morning ritual is usually…..

Trying my hardest to not look at my phone! Mornings are for me, and not for answering emails!! Inhale and exhale; Drink my alkaline lemon water (amazing for your metabolism and brain first thing in the morning!) Practise still-ness and mediation for at least 15 minutes. Then I have to go for a run by the ocean before my brain starts racing. Shower, dress and then I’m set for the day!

  My insider fashion tip…..

Spend more but buy less. Quality over quantity! Say NO to fast fashion and YES to timeless, local designers. Don’t worry about what everyone else is wearing, wear what makes YOU feel good.. because feeling good is looking good ;)

Gypsy_stone_loves-1

Coffee or tea…..

Both!! Haha see a pattern here? I love my tea and how you can drink it at any time of the day, especially love my green tea before bed. But I do look forward to my raw, organic, cold pressed nut milk “Stimulate” coffee from my local Ground Organics cafe! It’s so great!!!

  A gypsy stone girl must …..

The Gypsy Stone girl must have no boundaries. She must aim high and never look back. She has a wild mind and “that” look in her eyes. She is one with the universe and will always believe in beauty. Fearless because she always listens to her heart. She is a rebellious wanderer who loves the ocean, the grass and the sky at night. She loves life and respects mother nature and is here because something needs to happen, because she is the revolution ;)

The Power of the Human Spirit

Saturday, May 10, 2014

f121177e495024913651efb5e3b8595b

 

I remember ever so clearly, handing in a Year 9 essay sharing in my belief that animals are equal to humans, equal rights, real emotion and real pain.

I was marked down.

The mark didn’t concern me, it was his belief pattern.

I wanted to share this remarkable clip of how broken an animal can be (as we would) when neglected and abused.

But then witness how the touch and love of a human, awakens his spirit and joy for life!

It’s truly heart warming and the transformation is astounding….

60 Seconds With……. GypsyLovinLight

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

Today I welcome Helen from GypsyLovinLight, the awakened gypsy,  with an effortless style and a shining soul…….

IMG_0526

 

Gypsy Lovin Light is all about….

 sharing my inspirations and love of styling, creativity and expression. I love to inspire others to feel free, to follow their heart’s desire, in fashion and life.

Morning ritual….

A simple morning mantra “I love and accept myself just as I am”  Followed by a cup of chai and getting my kids ready for school :)

 IMG_0513

 

Favourite meal…..

my husbands fajitas….soooo amazing!

 

Drink….

I make an awesome strawberry margarita ;)

 

IMG_0538

 

Jewellery or Shoes….

JEWELLERY!!!! haha! This gypsy needs her jewels ;)

 

 I  never leave home without….

jewellery. It’s represents more to me than a physical symbol of beauty. It’s my talisman, my protection, a reflection of my mood, my soul’s light.

IMG_0534

My own style is…

really a reflection of my inner spirit. Each day it changes depending on my energy and inspirations. It’s being who I am, being authentic, choosing to wear what I like, and loving and accepting myself. That is real freedom. In fashion and in life. One day you’ll find me mermaiding on the beach dripping in shells and crochet, the next day I’m wearing a rocker tee, shredded denim, piled with vintage jewels. I love how free I feel in not defining my style. I let it be what ever I want to be and express. There are no limits.

 IMG_0614

 

My style icon/s…..

Ohhhhh this is hard. There’s a few. Top of the list is probably Erin Wasson. She oozes style from within. So effortless and utterly mesmerising.

 Favourite accessory….

 RINGS!!! The more the merrier. I love the endless possibilities of stacking multiple rings on as many fingers as possible. I have lots of fun playing ring dress ups at home. It’s a childlike space I enter where I create and have so much fun doing it :)

IMG_0482

 

The year ahead…..

Wow no idea. Just loving the ride I’m on and taking it one moment at a time.

IMG_0483

Driftwood jewellery stands handmade by Arrow Divine.

Glass bowl my cuffs are in was found in a boutique in Margaret River made by local artisan.

Rings are sitting in old Samantha Wills jewellery boxes.

Many of the turquoise rings/cuffs pictured were gifted to me by friends/designers and are OOAK and vintage.

Thanks for sharing your light, Helen.

Much gratitude to you xxx
