West Coast On My Mind
Been busy redecorating my bedroom, minimizing, more earthy tones, etc..I'm liking how it things are going lately. Went to a pottery expo with a friend..everything was so super priced!! The best part was the garden maze..spent like hours in there! Also saw groovy animal hedge art, a squirrel, a hen, a fox, and my fav., a elephant. Its incredible when you see art out of nature. Did tarot readings with friends at a park near the lake..it was very relaxing. Also went thrifting..starting to find stuff for back-to-school like plain white t-shirt & tanktop, boho gypsy paisley skirt, winter hat with giant pom-pom, long kaki green sweater, boho striped pants, boho hippie backpack..

Lovin': vegan keylime cheesecake, chow mein noodle veggie wok, rocky road icecream, matcha green tea chocolate bonbons, Indian paneer, Colombian guava jellies..

Hippie Rant

I don't know why old people assume that young people don't know shit about music! I know plenty! I had one old guy with the longest greying beard in a vinyl shop point to the Jimi Hendrix album cover I was holding & say to me "You know Hendrix? Really?? Aren't you too young to know him?" & in the summer I was wearing my Bob Marley t-shirt & this guy said "It's nice to see young people rockin' Marley!"..yeah mon, ask me the name of my cat? Go ahead, I dare ya!! Same with some of my hippie friends who have the same shitty problem. But its like online too, if you like 60s/70s bands, then the old generation think you are old too, which is so unfair coz young people can know loads of stuff about the 60s/70s!! Yeah, mon!! & I even know who Wavy Gravy is!

3:59 p.m. - 2022-02-12
Life On Mars
Last night, me & friends finally saw the film "Licorice Pizza" & it was sooo funny!!!! There weren't many people in the audience so we could sit down in the middle 2nd row near the front. I made the mistake of putting my small coke down on the floor, & some guy walked by us & he accidentally knocked it over spilling it all over. My friend Matt thought it was hilarious, but I started complaining real loud, & a few minutes later, the cute guy with the indy flicky hair surprised me by buying me a large coke! That was so sweet!! I felt bad afterwards. Then Matt & my boyfriend started throwing popcorn bits at me, Carrie & Steph which totally annoyed us! Anyways, we all enjoyed the film! It would be super awesome to live in that world! Totally magical, & the music was pretty cool too, even though I haven't heard most of it. I really recommend this film. It just makes you forget everything that is going on in the real world. Also, it made me & Carrie want to go thrifting again..haven't been thrifting in a long while so we went earlier today & I was thrilled to find some pretty boho stuff.

And Matt, pleeeeese stop saying "do you like peanut butter & jelly sandwiches?" the answer is a BIG NOOOOOO!!!

Moving Out
I have finally made a big decision, and I am both nervous and crazy thrilled..me and my boyfriend have bought a small flat and we are moving in at the end of this month! OMG!! It's actually a groovy x-mas gift from our parents. Gawd, when I think that I met my boyfriend only a few months ago at an outdoor hippie be-in and that we both love thrifting..its been a dream really!! Its a big step to take and hopefully everything will work out. Here's for a "rock n roll x-mas"!

3:44 p.m. - 2021-12-13

I think now is the time to start meditating again..I haven't done it in a while and my chakras are totally off balance lately! Every time things are starting to get better, something always goes wrong and I start to get depressed. I have a love for yoga for a few years now and I fell in love with the emotional, mental, and spiritual support that comes from the practice. Yoga is many things like a beautiful art form that makes you grow into a better human being. (pic source:pinterest)

Churros Anyone?

Cal was munching on something strange during class yesterday..when asked what it was? he replied churros..umm..dude, not in the usual donut form? They looked like fat fingered kit kat that had been attacked by cocoa powder. But thanks to Cal now i'm totally hooked on churro cereal!! And yeah, it is so good! it tastes similar to my Grandma's Swedish cinammon twists.

There Ain't No Other Road On Earth...
Went ghost haunting with a friend a few days ago and we came across two giant round cylinder tubes inbetween overgrown stalks of grass, and a winding narrow pathway in front of it and the scene was something straight out of My Own Private Idaho! I looked at it making a circle with my hands like a photo lens and it did look like a f**ked up face!! "There ain't no other road on earth that looks like this road..I mean, exactly like this road..one of a kind like someone's face, like a f**ked up face.." - River Pheonix. We went inside each tunnel tube and we could hear our voices echo loudly inside like 500 ghosts whooping it up! It was fun!! I've gotten in a creative mood lately making trippy hippy art and stone art during the heatwave which only lasted for a week and now its cold and rainy clouds again. Spending lots of time at Fireman's Park, walking amongst the lilac trees and sitting on the massive stones in the outdoor Greek-like amphitheater. Last week I painted two of my bedroom walls out of sheer boredom, I wanted to get rid of the horrible pee stain yellow on one of the walls. It looks very boho chic with the white paint now!! Been collecting kimonos - wow, a wonderful pandemic hobby!!

7:22 p.m. - 2021-04-03
Birthday Haul
A day before my b-day, i got a plant delivery from a friend, an exotic banana plant..those are so beautiful!! Also 3 small succulents which I will transfer into a boho pot. I baked my devil's chocolate cake with raspberry jam in the middle, and created a moon phase on top using white macarons. Next day, on my b-day, the day started off with a surprise from another friend!! I got 4 daisy balloons and a cupcake b-day balloon on a string..soo groovy!! Also got chakra incense for each energy, a groovy handmade tumbler with a pic of a hamsa hand on front and my name on the back, chakra rocks jewelry set, cranberry tea (which is really good!!), and a groovy elephant card!! Wow, love everything!! Than me and mom headed on a road trip to Dufferin Islands and we hiked in nature beside a brook. It was a lovely day out with no rain!! Then we ate vegan hotdogs and had cake with Ben & Jerry's cherry garcia icecream. Then had fun opening up pressies..here's what I got: from my Godmother, a beautiful peasant floral embroidered blouse (similar to what Penny Lane wears in Almost Famous!), from mom got: gold moon phase wall decor, Hindu God Shiva figurine, incense, Buddha head plant pot holder, moccasins, 3 books: The Crystal Bible, The New Bohemians Handbook and Siddhartha, peacock print wall tapestry, boho jewelry, Mandala print t-shirt, Flower Child t-shirt, elephant print harem pants, tie-dye headwrap for dreadlocks, elephant print boho skirt, straw beach bag that says "Aloha" on it, strawberry scented bubbles..Watched Almost Famous.

Snowed In
Oh wow, we got nearly 50 cm of snow, tried to shovel but its like you need snow shoes to walk on top of the snow otherwise I would sink and be stuck in it!! And we are getting an additional 35 cm more with non stop snowing for 3 more days!! This freakin' sucks!! I wish we had a skidoo!! I think that Southern Ontario has been declared a disaster area. And the shops finally opened today..can anyone actually get out?? I am so sickly depressed with winter now!! I want spring, birds chirping, soft rain, wearing less clothing, trees starting to get green and tulips and lilacs blooming!! I got perfume from mom for Valentine's and the scent is amazing, reminds me of carnival cotton candy, the ones that they make fresh right in front of you, but the bottle itself was boring with an awful sticker on it, so I took the sticker off, and personalized the bottle using acrylic paints, I painted daisies and half moons on it, and in the back I painted "Hippie Moon Glow". It turned out so groovy!! My mom loves it and she thought I had stickered it..haha. I sent a pic of it to my friends and now they want me to personalize their boring perfume bottles too. :) I keep having dreams lately when I have fun shopping like I used to!! I went with friends to the mall and there was a huge Forever21 and we had to line up at the changeroom, and I went in to try a bohemian dress, and I came out of room, and a guy sneaked in and closed the door on me..how rude! haha..so then we looked at the jewelry, and then in the mall, there were hippie vendors selling so many groovy things..I picked up a Buddha bowl but it was so expensive. I got a white quartz with dream catcher keychain and then at another stall, there were these white harem pants with gold elephants and they fit perfect, and then I was trying on a long Indian skirt with roses on it. I love dreams like this!!

Life of Goodness Food

I have started off 2021 by eating much healthier and iron is very important to have in your body! This meal consists of sweet potatoes, green beans in curry, chick peas, avocado slices, curried quinoa, and vegan vanilla yogurt.  After eating this, I wasn't hungry for hours and had lots of energy to exercise and walk outside.

3:09 p.m. - 2021-01-01

Boho Hippie Mood Board

I'm loving how my boho/hippie mood board turned out! I wanted something cheerful and colourful with my trippy artwork, mandala prints, a few of my fav. hippie people, and animals, and a Dark Crystal card on bottom right corner which I got from my boyfriend. Niagara region will be going into red zone on Monday and may be heading towards a lockdown. Thankfully we had done all our Christmas shopping online and shops by the middle of November!! It saddens me what the world has become, will we ever get back to normal?? Can't get together with friends and relatives during the holidays, no parties, no going out to Rain Forest cafe for our traditional fun at Clifton Hill, it really sux!!! It's going to be a very quiet Christmas, but we will still manage to have tons of fun anyways!

4:13 p.m. - 2020-12-11

Goals for today: declutter rooms, yoga meditation, dream of camping out in Wyoming (a postcard I got in the mail from a friend in the US), go on a road trip and reconnect with Mac DeMarco and the Arctic Monkeys.

DIY Boho Christmas Wreath

This was pretty easy to make but very time-consuming! It took nearly 3 hours to complete.  First I took a pizza box and cut out a round circle and then I cut out the middle part to look like a donut, then I took twigs and glued them onto the cardboard and went around, then I had to make pom-poms using yarn and then I used Marley's cat brush to fluff the pom-poms and then I glued them around the smaller circle, then I glued real pine bits around the outer edges of the pom-poms, and then I took 4 pine cones and glued them on (I unfortunately did not have a package of small pinecones to glue around, so I had no choice but to use only 4 large pinecones.  I think it turned out really great!! I got this idea from Katia's tutorial video..2 BOHO DIY CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS - YouTube

4:24 p.m. - 2020-11-30
DIY Crystal Shelf

This was really easy and fun to create!!! I went outside to collect twigs in the backyard..
* you need 4 x 23 cm, 4 x 15 cm, 4 x 7 cm lengths of twigs
* glue gun
* start off with 2 23 cm and put a 15 cm on bottom to start off the shelf
* then you just keep adding all 4 twigs on bottom and all 4 smaller twigs on the top part
* then you put on the back part using the other 2 23 cm twigs
* finish off with twisting a piece of rope on top part
Thanks to Jasmin Lunar for giving me this groovy project idea!!

2:33 p.m. - 2020-11-24
DIY Moon Holder

It took me hours to wrap yarn around the plastic moon holder, but I love it a lot!!! I do not like the look of plastic, this makes it a lot more boho and it was very easy to do, you can actually cover any plastic with yarn and all you need is a glue gun to seal it.  

4:26 p.m. - 2020-11-15
It's Just Another Day

It makes a lot of difference to me when the sun is out and it's warm outside!! I feel creative and energetic..doing artwork, hulahooping, hiking in nature..I made a friend with a woolly bear.  I haven't seen these all summer and all of a sudden in November, I found one. This one was quite friendly and I placed the woolly somewhere safe.  Now the sun has disappeared and we have hurricane-like winds, its pouring, and its grey and this kind of weather has a huge impact on me.  We haven't seen the sun in Southern Ontario for a while now and it is winter.  I get totally lazy and I sleep in late.  So, to combat the ungroovy vibes, we decorated two Christmas trees yesterday and danced to Christmas music and felt a whole lot better!! However, I long for hot climate with groovy palm trees and the sun in my face.

3:30 p.m. - 2020-10-21
Purple Haze

I love it when it feels like summer in Autumn and I can dress like I'm going to Woodstock to see Jimi Hendrix rock out on stage and I can blow bubbles and feel hippy dippy free!!

4:21 p.m. - 2020-10-18
The Ring Barn

I love how my painting turned out..this is my interpretation of the groovy creepy barn in The Ring film. I used black ink to draw it and then i used acrylics. This is the part of the film that I anticipate the most..just to see this amazing looking barn!! And of course Samara's room inside with the cute carousel.

Hippie Shein Haul

I got these groovy things in the mail recently..lovin' my patchwork bellbottoms a lot and I got a package of 90s butterfly hairclips..i was disappointed that they were small compared to the ones I got a while back from forever21 but the colours are way groovy!!

Pin on UFO, USO, or something lol

This is what I am fascinated with lately..Unidentified Submerged Objects (USOs)..I first heard of them on Ancient Aliens and UFO Hunters etc..theres been quite a lot of discussion on this subject, that there could be alien life forms or ufo bases under the ocean floors! There have been unexplained strange lights, and sounds coming from there and no one really knows what exactly is causing this? Also, I've learnt that the octopus could be from another planet because it is a highly intelligent ocean creature that is capable of many things! The octopus is my spirit animal :) So knowing that it could come from another planet is amazing!!

Psychedelic Art

Recent artwork created in the humid hot sunshine..mushrooms, and a hippie sign inspired by the film Psych-Out. I got sick from drinking too much of Timmy's strong iced coffee!! I thought I was gonna start climbing the walls!! Way way much caffeine and I was ready to fly myself to the moon!! Not been doing much lately except reorganizing the basement, getting rid of stuff, because its so much cooler downstairs when its like 41 humidity!!

Tambourine, Anyone?

Do you enjoy your own company? I create art when i'm alone. Here's a few new groovy pieces I recently did outside on the patio when it was humid (+40)..a 1960s inspired hippie tambourine, and a wooden moon hanger.  I also like to go on nature adventures, play dress-up, sing, and hula hoop. What are some of the things you like to do?

Space In Mind

Artwork I created in honour of NASA's space launch which was supposed to happen today..anyways, this piece is titled Space In Mind.
This is the planet that rules the Sacral Chakra - the moon is the symbol of femininity - our desires and passions can move great oceans of energy (sacral chakra = element is water), the moon rules the unconscious, the mysterious, the unseen, the dark, as we move from our depths outward to create change in the world..

Miracle Eye drawing I did and stuck it on my window..since I couldn't order the sticker, I decided to create it instead.

A Hippie Anecdote

I'm totally a flower child..sometimes I do a 1970s Stevie Nicks witchy look, but I prefer the look that Kate Hudson had in Almost Famous and I also admire Janis Joplin's style very much.

My Top 5 Hippie Exploitation Films

1. Easy Rider (1969)..this is the ultimate road trip movie..the story is basically these two biker buddies who travel across the States and meet lots of interesting people along the way, like a hippie commune where they try LSD. They also make friends with a lawyer (Jack Nicholson), and take him along their adventure. It ends real sad though. I also own the soundtrack on vinyl which is filled with great songs!! My fav. is The Weight - The Band.."take a load off Fanny..take a load for free.." and I have this endless obsession with Peter Fonda!! Loooove him!! He's so dreamy on his huge Harley!!
2. Psyche-Out (1968)..love the way the movie starts with The Storybook's Pretty Song from Psyche-Out..later it was covered by Strawberry Alarm Clock. One of the best hippie exploitation films ever! Susan Strasberg plays a deaf girl who takes a bus trip down to the San Francisco Haight-Asbury scene looking for her brother. She meets Stoney (yay..Jack Nicholson again!!), and his hippie band in a coffee shop. Theres plenty of groovy psychedelic posters and art work around. There's a tragic end to this movie as well. I love this quote in the movie: "God is alive and well and living in a sugar cube."
3. I Love You, Alice B. Toklas (1968)..story about Harold (Peter Sellers), a lawyer who is being forced to marry his secretary. He gets side-tracked when he meets up with his brother, Herbie, who happens to be a hippie living in Venice Beach. Herbie's girlfriend is a flower child who loves baking magic brownies. The tripping scene is hilarious when it involves their folks. Harold tries to find himself by becoming a hippie himself, but then he has enough of the lifestyle and decides to marry his secretary after all. There's a groovy guru party scene in it and lots of craziness..its a fun movie!!
4. Go Ask Alice (1973) but it takes place in 1968..this is one of my fav. movies ever!!! It's about a 15 year old girl, Alice, who moves with her family to a new town and she desperately tries making new friends and trying hard to fit in to her new school with dire consequences. I'm sure you've heard of the book Go Ask Alice by Anonymous..the book is a great read!! There's a scene in the movie where she experiences her first LSD trip at a party without knowing it. The song Dear Mr. Fantasy - Traffic plays in the background. She gets hooked on drugs after that and gets into trouble and runs away and then the horrible babysitting scene near the end etc..
5. Woodstock 69..the best concert ever staged!! Love the beginning where they are constructing the stage areas, and people dancing to Going Up the Country..umm..yeah the first half of the docu-movie is more of the performance bits of bands, and 2nd half shows more of the people and interviewing them, and you get to see Janis Joplin behind the scenes, Wavy-Gravy, Jerry Garcia etc..
Other hippie films that are more favourites of mine:
The Love-Ins, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, The Trip, Alice's Restaurant, Hair, Maybe I'll Come Home In the Spring, Head and Rainbow Bridge.

Groupies Art

Groupies art I recreated (inspired by goldendomine).

2:07 p.m. - 2019-06-21
Magical Stones

My favourite is the Opalite, the round iridescent one that resembles a marble or a fortune teller's crystal ball..this stone gives off high energy..great for meditation..helps to open up all Chakras.

Banded Carnelian is the orange-y stone..this helps bathe you in courage as you face personal challenges.

Picture Jasper resembles Arizona mountains..this is an excellent stone for creative vision initiative and boosts confidence.

The one with a hand in green stone has something to do with mindful serenity. Every time I go to the Shiny Company, I always pick up stones.

Marley keeps attacking my legs and biting them..what a weird kitty cat!! BTW..Marley is named after Bob Marley because I actually watched the film "Marley" a day before we adopted him!! How freaky!! Being a huge Bob Marley fan, I had to give him this name. Also our other cat was called Bob..so its kind of groovy this way!

Calm Cool And Groovy
I am sitting here listening to September 24, 1999 - Xavier Rudd..the lyrics are really speaking to me..yes clouds seem thick and so much talk and humans have so much hate..listen to those lyrics! and my insecurity and guidance..coz I won't fall away..no I won't..and I have a new friend, Marley, a beautiful grey/white tabby cat who has helped me overcome my depression and brought back my energy and love for life..thank you, Marley :)
