Post image for Egalitarianism And Tofu At Twin Oaks Intentional Community

Just outside of Richmond, Virginia, down a long and winding road shaded by dense greenery exists a world entirely different than the one that you and I inhabit. The world of Twin Oaks. Read more »

I made the handles on most of those wheel barrows.

Wow, what a surprise to have Twin Oaks pop up on my blogfeed! I lived there and many friends still do. I love how you captured the detail of the land and surroundings in your photographs. There is so much more to say about living in an intentional community like Twin Oaks, the connections between people, the freedom of the culture so you can relax into being who you are (or for many, figuring out who that is), the varied worklife, the wild parties and the tensions of working out the big decisions together. Twin Oaks represents what is possible for all of us. We can all learn a lot about how to live lighter on the earth, be freer and live a juicy life from Twin Oakers. I love that the Free People blog is delving into topics like these. Love from a rainy day in NZ. x

The ocean is good for the soul and spirit. It is better than any therapy.

Sometimes, when fall sends hints of its arrival, you want to be taken away to a place of endless summer, just to immerse yourself in sweet sun-drenched moments for a few days more. Read more »

Doing something different like making food is good when we are feeling stressed. By this we can forget our tension for sometime. You have shared a delicious recipe, by eating this half of the stress will go by itself.

I am loving coming home to a french vanilla candle every day. My house smells so delicious and warm. I also love vanilla sleepy time tea by celestial. It really takes the edge off camomile. <3 Lovely post!

Post image for 4 Ways To Be Less Stressed Out … Right Now

Is it me, or has the idea of stress and being so stressed out become a familiar constant in our lives? Read more »

I totally agree! Thanks for the reminders. I get anxiety on winter nights but this season I acquired a new hobby that has really helped. It started with making a point to look up more. Before I knew it I was in love with the stars. I received amazing binoculars for Christmas and now the excitement and wonder I feel recognizing stars by name and being able to point out more and more constellations definitely beats the stress.

Such great tips, I always forget how relaxing a massage is and endeavour to book one in once every 2 months or so. The physical calendar locking in 'down-time' is such a good tip too - we get too caught up in our phones and if it runs out of battery we have no idea what to do!

Post image for Childhood Advice I Finally Follow

When you’re a kid, it seems like adults are requesting that you do things you seriously do not want to do. Clean your room. Do your homework. Brush your teeth. Put on sunscreen. Read more »

1. Hugs I went through an age of "Mom! Don't kiss and hug me in front of my friends!" in elementary school. It was embarrassing, and I was trying to develop a sense of personal space and an outward appearance of "grown up." Now, I live in a different timezone than my parents, and I miss their hugs more than anything else! 2. Put your dishes in the dishwasher. I don't have a dishwasher now, so dishes in my apartment quickly pile up in the sink. My roommate and I try to stick to a rule: we wash them right away! It doesn't always work, but it cuts down on dishwashing time and smelly, dirty dishes.

Great! Also, I love those pants. Anyone know if they're from free people?

Meet Carmel Seymour.

I was first taken by her piece “The Secret Not Worth Knowing,” pictured above, when a co-worker sent it my way. The title itself lingered in my brain like a fine wine on the palette… one that you can’t quite describe but you just know you like it a lot… and want more of it, a lot more. Read more »
