Hello! 2020 has brought out allllll the moods and changes, I truly hope that we as a collective are staying healthy, productive and still striving to know better so we can all do better!

This is a picking up where I last left off post, many wonderful chapters have begun amidst the challenges and if I am being taught anything at all (trust there a long list) it is living allllll, I mean ALL of my wildest dreams.

I have recently crossed over to Real Estate and in true Taurus fashion, as the bulls that we are, I am all head and heart into this hustle. I have been managing short term rentals for several years now in addition to my freelance beauty styling career and somewhere in my late 30’s I have now full heartedly decided to open and entertain the realm of endless opportunities with investing, building, developing, designing.

Please follow and support my page on instagram and I will be updating you more platforms I’ll be revolving on.

Aloha and Mahalo as always for your support, AJ

I am grateful. I am thankful.

This is a mantra that I’ve held close to my being and existence for the past year. This silent and often repeated affirmations has kept me through character building times!

This photo was taken today, as I had a moment, coming full circle in the lessons I have endured and learned these last few years.

Even with the world as at a standstill.

I am exactly where I need to be. Right place, here now, AJ

right here, do the most now.

I hope you are all taking the time to just be. I know it’ll take some time to adjust to the light and shadows of our current events so the best thing to do is just go with the flow!

WE all have the ideal scenario in our minds but we have to understand that in these present times, its best to be grounded but flexible AF.

These unprecedented times have allowed me to knock a few things off my list of things I’ve always wanted to do if I have ever been given the time.

This time around, as I’ve lived a few quarantine lives, I have am well equipped with the awareness of what my soul and family needs. There are certain levels of activity, both independently and as a unit that needs to be learned and refined.

On this particular morning, I have found the a harmonius delight of slow serving myself to a home made cup of coffee, something I have not done in too long, (years if I am wanting to be transparent here)

So take this time to reset, relax and replace those habits you’ve always wanted to alter or change.

Now is the perfect time to be oh so present, AJ

Beach Tent

Carry all Wagon

Portable Table

As I was filling out my sons school forms, I started to schedule my work days to match his school days and wondered what I would do for our school breaks.

As we went on our nightly walks, I saw a shooting star and asked him if he saw it, he didn’t. Right then and there I promised myself to make the upcoming school year more adventures and quality time to explore the great island outdoors.

So then I had the idea of camping but obvi, its me, its more glamping, so hooray to building this gorgeous all year round wishlist.

Starting with some basics and collecting my way around memories and meteors.

Never say never. Shocking my own self just in case I start dwelling on the shit show saga I just survived.

My very dear friend and life colleague shared with me what could possibly be the life changing moment we both had. Of course I’ll be vague here just in case I end up acquiring an audience as the beauty of reading a real life chapter to my life, you’ll get to watch it unfold.

Commitment and Resilience is about to meet its match, AJ

 

 

TEA with TSB

Doterra, Essential Oils, Freelance Stylist, Island Life, Mobile Entrepreneur, Pro Artist Tip

 

What’s not to love about some art therapy? Personally my soul needs it, my being craves it, its all I know how to cope and survive. Fortunately, my wahines and I have been blessed in living out our best i-hope-i-will-no-longer-be-a-starving-artist-dreams.

I paid a visit to my ever so dearest friend, TSB aka hennamama808 on IG and she’s been my go to for any spiritual musings, advice and henna!

Here we started the magical morning with angel readings, lavender inhaler blessings, (these are my new portable obsessions that can hold any doTERRA eseential oil blend for on the go wellness) lemongrass + black tea for our goddess gathering. Her henna cones are custom made with the finest quality body henna and she has incorporated essential oils like Somalian Frankinsence, Bulgarian Lavender and Australian Cajeput to name a few.

We let our thoughts into the universe, our questions, our reasons for being, our next moves, what we are presently…as mothers, as caretakers, as wives, as lovers, we lose so much of ourselves in the process and moment was just what we needed to count our blessings and share it.

On this particular day, I moved my things out of my home into a my storage. I said goodbye to my old life and simply surrendering to this new one. I navigated the day with uneasiness but determined determination. I silently mused and thanked what got me here and what fueled my exit.

Upon watching the clips above, you would have no idea what kind of things and people I am mourning….and thats the beauty of it all. Choose what you want to put out, perceive what you think and move onto to the next.

Simply, this is me retiring, reminding myself no matter how hard the day gets, I can always gift myself time with my mind, body and soul. Once I had the chance to break free from obligations I went to the nearest paradise opening and collapsed on the sand by the sunset on the shore, stretched out and got covered in prehistoric bones and tings while I deeply inhaled and exhaled a personal apothecary made concoction featuring doTERRA lavender essential oil that I made just for me, to help with moments like this.

Sun & Solitude, AJ

A day just for me.

Navigating through the predicaments and learning the patience to be your best and honor thyself.

It’s been a tough few weeks. Personally & Professionally, I sought the advice of one my mentors and she created a loving and supporting healing oil blend to take with me during this transition.

On what seemed like the first brighter day of this challenging season, I went outside and just had a day for me. I drove myself to my favorite healing spots on the island, took in my breaths, took in the sights and sounds and just be. Thank you my friend for infusing my life with inspiration and aromatherapy.

I spent the hours getting muddy from the hikes, I was drenched from the winter rain, I was left inspired and dried out by the sun when it finally came out. I stood on the top of the mountain and found my way by the shore down the sea. I took it all in today, which made me reflect, I need to have more of. Join my Tribe!

Another day in paradise, AJ

Lavender has been used and cherished for centuries for its unmistakable aroma and myriad benefits.

Its calming and relaxing qualities, when taken internally, continue to be Lavender’s most notable attributes. Applied topically, Lavender is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck. Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to relax and prepare for a restful night’s sleep.
