Sometimes I love nothing more than to sit on my bedroom floor with a pile of jewels and play dress ups. Stacking rings and necklaces is by far the part of my job I love most. It’s my heart’s joy and it connects me to my inner child that is always bubbling just beneath the surface awaiting every opportunity to come forth. It’s a space that is so spontaneous, expansive and completely timeless. It was such a joy for me receiving this awesome package from the divine Minc Collections, and layering all these gorgeous pieces to create one goddess inspired look.
As I frolicked along the beach on this calm, overcast and slightly eerie day, I was reminded of why I began this creative journey. I danced upon the beach, jewels jingling, my body dripping in layers of silver chain and quartz crystal, fingers fully adorned in moonstone, silver and an assortment of stacking rings, filled with light and love, and total freedom to be myself.
To take a canvas like my body and adorn it beautifully in all that I love reminds me of the beauty that resides in all beings, in everything. It reminds me of the magic that I am, that you are, that exists everywhere I look.
It’s been a little over 2 years now since I started GypsyLovinLight and I’m so grateful every single day for how it continues to enable me so much freedom to creatively express myself. It provides me with a platform for my own unique voice. It reminds me to be myself. To be true and authentic. And in sharing who I am with the world, and all that I love, I hope to inspire others to do the same.
With love and gratitude,
