Thrilling Me!

29/8/2013

C4SC Site + Yourcorelight Jewels + Orawgi + Eco Baby Shower + Nat Kringoudis Brisbane Event

I hope that wherever you are on this Thursday that you’re well and happy and finding peace wherever you can. I’m in the throes of a very full life at the moment, with a very special wedding coming up next week, which I’m bridesmaid for, and Hen’s celebrations to be organised and had this weekend, plus the myriad other plates that must keep spinning in the meantime – it’s all happening!

I’m hoping to pop up a post or two next week, but as wedding prep begins mid-week, and with this weekend already full, I’m going to play it by ear. So if you don’t hear from me for a short while, it’s not because I don’t love you, but because I’ll be firmly ensconced IRL (in real life), celebrating the union of two amazing friends of mine! Which is what life’s all about, AMIRITE? (IAMRITE.)

I will however likely be active over on Insty, capturing as much as I can in photos, so come on over!

Let’s get in to what’s been thrillin’ me lately:

C4SC Website is go

It’s been up for a little while now, but I just wanted to give it a little plug and final pat on its baby bottom before I leave it to go out in to the world and do its thing – our Centre for Social Change website is up and running and I am beyond excited that we’ve finally pressed publish.

C4SC

We’re a team that’s looking to creatively and effectively engage communities to co-create a better future for generations; enhance the capacity of those catalysing positive change to broaden and deepen their impact; and we want to engage with the economy differently to support people’s livelihoods, while protecting and even enhancing social and environmental wellbeing. We have some exciting events and projects coming up, so if you’d like to keep in contact, hop on over to either our website or Facebook page!

YCL Jewels

I’m blessed to know the gorgeous and wonderfully talented Fabienne from Yourcorelight, and her recently launched jewellery making business, Yourcorelight Jewels, is thrilling my socks off at the moment. Fabienne produces delightful hand crafted bohemian luxe pieces which ooze warmth and passion. She makes her pieces from specifically chosen crystals, which are often combined to magnify their collective power together.

She also makes and blesses each of her pieces with intentions of love and joy – which is utterly delightful. I recently had a custom  design of the YCL Sky Anchor made (who knew I had freakily tiny wrists?), with rose quartz and smoky quartz stones, complemented by a clear quartz drop and an evil eye drop (for energetic protection). I’ve hardly taken it off, it just seems to go with everything! Head on over to Yourcorelight and take a look at her entire collection – it’s beeeautiful.

Orawgi

Brissie based foodies, listen up and listen good – if you haven’t already discovered the delight that is Orawgi, you must head down to the Gabba post-haste and get to eating the delicious grub they serve up down there. It’s all organic, raw and low GI (hence the ORAWGI), and is so super tasty. Jamie Louise is a raw and vegan chef, and she’s created a beautiful space, housed within the BioSolar headquarters, which can seat a small number of people but is generally a take-away spot.

I recently popped in for a raw treatie (picture above, accompanied by some CoYo) and green vegie juice – and it was super delish. I can’t wait to mow my way through the rest of the menu. The cafe is currently not open on the weekends, but a little birdie tells me that this may change in the very near future (YAY!), so stay tuned!

Eco Baby Shower

I went to the most amazing baby shower over the weekend for my beautiful soul sister, Sara. She had us drinking green smoothies, fresh lemonade (not loaded with sugar), and eating a range of delightful organic treats made by Mandala (which has had a previous mention on this here blog, it’s a wonderful restaurant down in Broadbeach on the Gold Coast). So much YUM, not enough tummy room.

We had so much fun, connecting and celebrating the imminent arrival of Sara’s precious little one. I’m so blessed to spend time with so many amazing people, and in particular a growing bunch of highly conscious, inspiring, seriously kick-arse ladeez who are rocking the world in their own unique way. Giddy-up, girl power.

Nat Kringoudis Brisbane Event

A late breaking thrilling me piece of news is that the super talented health and fertility expert Nat Kringoudis, who I had on Pockets of Peace recently, is bringing her Debunking Ovulation event here to Brisbane in late October – which is super news for all my Brissie gal pals. I’m rather devastated that I can’t make it, due to some project work I’ll be doing in Fiji at the time, but I’m thrilled that Nat will be here nonetheless.

Nat Bris

The superb team from Earth Events are organising it all, so head on over to their site to check it all out and register – these tickets will go fast, that’s for sure. Nat also has events planned for Adelaide and Melbourne, and it sounds like there’s also one planned for Sydney too – check out her website for more details on those.

That’s me for this week, gorgeous! How about you share what’s thrilling you, below? C’mon, don’t be shy! Sharing is caring.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what
    all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
