lately | hideaway ≜

Hola amigos! I'm here again with the sunshine upon my face. I've been absent from blogging lately as you might have realized; I've been somewhat busy trying a new approach to life. I like to think of it as an hollistic approach to life perhaps. I've reached a point when everyday seemed like Groundhog Day and things weren't actually making much sense, so I had to switch off a few of lights for a while, including blogging, removing myself from toxic people and fake surrounds in order to focus on other things: positive things, positive people and new horizons to bring you the goods with no polluted, dirty cosmic interferences.  I mean, I'm still all about sweet rock 'n' roll and good times, but hey, you do need a break sometimes, right? 

i) Beauty
Beautywise I've been only into organic, indie and pretty products. I am not able to shop at conventional shops anymore; it's too fake and too plastic for me to give in and splurge. I am not able to buy those huge brands anymore. I really can't explain you why, but they kind put me off really. Maybe it's because of the exaggerated luxe/commercial/unethical stamp associated to certain beauty brands, maybe it's because they keep sending a wrong message. I don't know. It's a bit complex. And you know I'm a bit of a free spirited weirdo who doesn't care for that ultra high-end stuff.
In terms of haircare I've been using Rahua, Sachajuan and Sans Ceuticals. I recently discovered a lovely California handmade, organic brand called La Tierra Sagrada and I really, really want to give it a try.

Charcoal and clay soaps from Herbivore Botanicals.

Sachajuan volume shampoo & SANS [ceuticals] volumising hair hydratant.
Burning up some Palo Santo and filling up the air with good vibes. Beautful Antipodes Nature Reincarnation face scrub was also present.

ii) Books and records
1.2. Nick Waterhouse - Holly 3.4. You are a Circle - A Visual Meditation for the Creative Mind , Guillaume Wolf "Prof. G". 5.6. Be Here Now, Ram Dass

iii) Clothing

You know I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. I don't particularly feel attracted to over the top stuff. It's too much visual noise when I look in the mirror, so I like it muted. I've bought a pair  of vintage Gloria Vanderbildt jeans, circa 1978,  and they are the coolest thing ever. These are lady jeans (ha!), and because they are high waisted they make your butt look super voluptuous, in a totally sexy, Bianca Jagger, grown-up lady way.
