What we're loving lately!
We have been so inspired lately and that's due to a number of things that we've been loving! So naturally we wanted to share them all with you. This includes books, podcasts, quotes and mantras, so no matter what your budget or time we hope you'll find some refreshing inspiration in this post!
We don't know about you but we sometimes find ourselves in a bit of a creative funk where we'd rather curl up in to a ball on the sofa and stay there for a couple of days rather than embrace life and our creativity. We are continually learning and realise that this way is completely natural as it's important to listen to our bodies and how we feel, however if there is something out there that can help to uplift, energise and cultivate creativity within us, then we're sure we would all want to know about it! This is exactly why we want to share with you what has helped to uplift and inspire us over the past couple of weeks, reminding us that life is beautiful and to put it bluntly - we should be grabbing it by the balls and remember our 'why' behind our goals and dreams.
If you haven't heard of the author Jen Sincero then we're super excited to introduce her work to you! She is a success coach and motivational speaker who has devoted her life to supporting people to transform their lives. Jen Sincero's book 'You Are a Badass at Making Money' is the most inspiring book we've read this year. If you have limiting beliefs or a negative relationship to money, then this is the book for you! This book has really supported us to revaluate our own thoughts towards money. Sincero shares her wisdom by helping us to realise that money is not the root of all evil but instead a way to enhance our lives and can create opportunities. She encourages us all to believe that there is in fact, an abundance of wealth and plenty to go around. One of our favourite quotes from the book is;
“You do the energetic work, get your thoughts, actions, and words in line with what you desire to create, and surrender the rest of the details up to the Universe.”

We have been using mantras from her book and hope you'll find them useful too;
- “I love money because I love myself.”
- “I love money because I love living an awesome life.”
- “I love money because money is always here for me.”
- “I love money because it’s the root of so much awesome.”
- “I love money and money loves me.”
We have also been loving the podcast Manifest This! by our favourite spiritual guide Ashley Wood who has featured as our Woman Crush Wednesday a few months back, which you can find here. Ashley has been on a pretty incredible spiritual journey since we last spoke with her and is now an Akashic Record reader. If the Akashic records sound like a completely alien concept to you, then don't worry, it was for us too! However after listening to Ashley's inspiring, high vibe and nothing short of magical podcast, we not only understand more about the Akashic Records but are pretty obsessed and have even booked a reading with Ashley in August. So if you're looking for spiritual guidance or healing then head to her site to find out what exactly akashic records are. As well as recording solo episodes every Thursday, Ashley interviews the most amazing women from all walks of life and careers, who are sharing their talents and creativity with the world in such an inspiring way!

If you haven't picked up Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the famous book and film 'Eat Pray Love', then what are you waiting for? If you have a million ideas but are not sure how to put them in to practice, or if you have completed your work and are second guessing whether it's good enough or if you are desperate to add a little creativity in to your life then you need to read Big Magic! Elizabeth Gilbert encourages us to see that 'done is better than never' and that there's no such thing as perfect. This is the book that will finally get you to create and release your ideas out in to the world, helping you to take action towards living the life you've always dreamed, leaving fear far behind!
“Do whatever brings you to life, then. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.”
Big Magic! Elizabeth Gilbert
We hope that this little insight into what we've been loving lately will spark and motivate your creativity. These two books and podcast have been a refreshing reminder to us to let go of the pressure of perfectionism and surrender to the universe, with the trust that we have the power within us to make a change and live more meaningful lives! As always we would love to hear what has been inspiring you lately.
