Post image for A Romantic Palette: Ruby, Amber, & Amethyst

As we go deeper into fall, we’re naturally drawn to a darker, more sensual color palette; one that brings about feelings of romance and passion; one that’s reminiscent of ruby, amber, and amethyst. Read more »

Post image for 5 Tips For Staying Positive

I have a confession.  Something that I have always struggled with in life is staying positive.  I wouldn’t call myself a negative person, necessarily, I just tend to fall somewhere in the middle.  I think it stems from the fact that I’m very anxious — I live very much in the future, always thinking about the consequences of my actions and potential negative outcomes.  Ever since reading The Power Of Now for our book club earlier this year, I’ve tried to confront this trait head on and do what I can to change my outlook.  It has been a goal of mine to be more positive, and it’s something that I continue to work on.  Read more »

Julia, i really loved this article.

Wow this couldn't have come at a better time. I was telling my sister on the train today morning, I have lost my positivity and I have no idea why. I know people say Tired of London, Tired of Life but then say I am because London is just too much for me now. it's mostly filled with unhappy people going to unhappy jobs whilst trying to pay off their great big mortgages and no time to enjoy loved ones.. It's got me thinking surely there is more than this so I am so grateful for this post! Actually I love all your posts FP they make you dream! and feel free. I loved your trip to Cornwall, it's making me want to move there but I guess these are the first steps to staying happy inside and then follow your dreams! Thanks Julia and everyone who has commented at least i know I'm not alone in these feelings.

Post image for Geo Sport: The Trend Illustrated

The colorful prints and bright hues of summer days have passed on by… but fret not, fall makes way with plays on stripes, vertical grids, and floral prints all in graphical black and white arrangements. In this case, opposites surely attract. Black and white graphics enable us to keep our look clean and sophisticated without losing our edge. Read more »

Post image for Learning To Read Tarot Cards

I have always been fascinated with Tarot cards, but it wasn’t until last year around the holidays that I finally got my hands on the beautiful deck we were selling by The Wild Unknown. Ever since, I have been trying to practice and learn the basics of Tarot readings.  It can seem overwhelming at first — there are so many different cards and meanings, and a variety of ways to read them.  Today I wanted to share some of the beginner’s tips that I have found most useful, and three common spreads to practice with.
