The 26-year-old actress Nikki Reed was spotted looking gorgeous outside of LAX. She was solo yet stylish wearing the Gypsy05 Tesserae Maxi Dress. She paired the beautiful floor length printed dress with suede boots, leather jacket and hat. We love the trendy jet set outfit. Shop the boho inspired print with our Tesserae Collection>>

Rose, Lavender, & Oatmeal Bath Bombs
Makes three medium (6cm / 2.25" diameter) round bath fizzies and one mini

1/2 cup (110g) Citric Acid
1 cup (290g) Baking Soda (UK: Bicarbonate of Soda)
1/4 cup (25g) Quick oats
1/4 tsp Lavender essential oil
1/8 tsp Rose Geranium essential oil
Flower petals (Lavender buds and Rose petals)
Witch Hazel - in a spray bottle

 
 
 
1. Sift the Citric Acid and Baking Soda (Bicarbonate) into a bowl. Sifting removes any clumps from either and will ensure a smooth and even consistency in your finished bath bombs. If you're using a scale to measure your ingredients, place the bowl with your fine mesh sifter nested inside directly on top and pour the ingredients in.  
 
 2. Pour your quick oats into the bowl and stir really well. Next, drizzle your essential oils on top and mix everything really well. I find that using my hand is far better than a spoon since I can break any clumps with my fingers and make sure that the fragrance is evenly dispersed.
 
3. Now here comes the trickiest part to describe. You'll want to spray this mixture with Witch Hazel until it reaches a slightly damp consistency. The best way to describe this is maybe damp sand on the beach that is just starting to dry out. With my mini spritzer I spray three squirts and then mix really well with my hand. I keep adding three more squirts and mixing until the consistency feels right. What you're looking for is the mixture holding form when you squish it into a ball in your hand. With my mini sprayer this took eighteen squirts though of course your sprayer may be different.
  
 
 
4. Bath bomb moulds come in two pieces with one side fitting inside the other. Take the half that has the lip that fits inside the other half and place a few dried flower petals at the bottom. These will be the pretty decoration you see on the top of the bath bomb so arrange the flowers in an attractive manner.
 
5. Take a handful of the damp bath bomb mixture and carefully pour it on top of your flower arrangement. Use both of your thumbs to compact the mixture down but leave a hollow in the centre. Fill this hollow with more dried flower petals and then sprinkle more bath bomb mixture on top. Don't compress the top mixture just yet and set this half of the mould down for a moment 

 
6. Take the second half of the mould in your hand and fill it with bath bomb mix. Press down with your thumbs to compress but don't leave a hollow this time. Top it off with a bit more bath bomb mix and like the other half, don't compress this top layer yet.

7. Carefully pick up both halves of the moulds and place them together. Press firmly so that the mixture from both halves compresses together.

8. Pull the 'bottom' mould off your bath bomb then gently tap the bomb out of the second half and onto a surface where it can dry. If your surface is too hard, it's likely that the bottom of your bath bomb will flatten so I dry my own bombs on a folded towel with a sheet of cling film on top. 
Depending on size, Bath Bombs can take anywhere from twelve to twenty-four hours to dry. After this, you're able to package them up, set them somewhere to scent the room, and eventually pop them into your bath for fizzy and fragrant relaxation.

Fall is officially here, and there's no better way to keep the summer vibes going then with a sweet summer treat with a fall twist. Enjoy this lovely ice cream recipe, that’s sure to keep you in love all fall and winter long.  

 
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
makes about four and a quarter cups
 

  2 cups heavy cream, divided
2 cups whole milk
4 egg yolks
5 tablespoons sugar, divided
1 vanilla bean, halved
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons dark rum
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 

In a heavy bottomed sauce pan, heat one cup of the heavy cream over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, pour 3 tablespoons sugar into a small bowl, scrape vanilla beans into the sugar, and then use fingertips to rub beans and pod into the sugar.

When cream is steaming, add the vanilla sugar, along with vanilla pod. Turn heat to low and steep for about 10 minutes.

Bring heat back up to medium. In a small bowl, whip remaining 2 tablespoons sugar into egg yolks. Temper yolks by slowly pouring in 1/4 cup of steaming cream mixture, and then slowly adding an additional 1/2 cup of hot cream. Whisk the yolk and cream mixture back into the steamy cream. Whisk in whole milk, sea salt, and ground cinnamon. Stirring constantly, cook mixture over low heat until the custard thickens and coats the back of a wooden spoon, about 7 minutes.

Take mixture off heat and stir in the remaining cup of cream, rum, and vanilla extract.

Pour cream into jars and chill thoroughly in the fridge for at least 4 hours

 
 
 

 Apple Crisp Ice Cream 

4 1/4 cups chilled vanilla bean custard

1 cup chilled roasted apple butter
1 cup oat crisp, divided

 

Process chilled vanilla bean ice cream according to ice cream maker’s instructions, or about 20 minutes. When ice cream is cold and the consistency of soft serve, spoon a quarter of the ice cream into a 2 quart freezer proof container. With 1 cup of apple butter and 1/2 cup of the crisp (you’ll want to reserve some of the crisp for topping), create alternating layers of ice cream, apple butter, and crisp. Give everything a quick swirl, cover, and freeze for at least four hours.

Serve ice cream in cones topped with a pinch of ground cinnamon and a sprinkle of the reserved crisp. Once frozen, ice cream should sit out for 15 – 20 minutes before serving.

We all have a world we are born into (whether it be of physical matter, culture/traditions or upbringing, mannerisms, etc.), and therefore grow accustomed to a certain kind of life, way of being, and environment/s until we choose to break free.  On the verge of the full Moon and Lunar eclipse here in October, I decided to venture off into a little less well-known territory for not only a change of scenery - but mindset and energy as well.  I was born and raised in Arizona; a state of beautiful, vast landscapes, dry heat and a blazing Sun solely us natives seem to be used to.  When I ventured out into the world however, I found that there was so much more to not only explore & discover, but to Life itself - and so here the journey began…


As I travel near and far, I would like to have you accompany me - into my adventures around the world & into Self.  Guided by solely my dreams and my vision I write to you now of solely three things: expansion, evolution, and energy.


There are several things that must be addressed prior to jumping into such discovery; such as, how we can go about beginning our inner journey towards absolute inner peace and Self Love for balance & harmony in our outer world. 
 
 
 
  
 
 
 

This week, like most, I began with writing an open letter to mySelf and goals I saw that should be reached in order to move forward on this said journey.  It is very important to make habit of allotting time for yourSelf - away from all of the noise, static and negative frequencies - & often.  As you begin to open up to not only the idea of being "alone," but actually enjoying and becoming comfortable in solitude, you will steadily learn how to clear your mind and silence any negative incoming energies, thoughts etc. even when in a world of chaos - such as cities, events, etc. that you may find yourself in.

 

 
 
 

 

Practice Exercise

 

(Allot yourSelf a minimum of 30 minutes for some "Me time")


Find a space where you can clear your mind, preferably in nature. 
 
 
   
 
 
 

What to bring with you:


Notebook, pen, blanket/towel (something to put down to sit/lay on), water (always stay hydrated!), camera for documentation (memory building), and crystals (if you own any - for cleansing, charging and setting intent - more on this in later weeks!).


Nothing else, and please - try and leave all digital distractions behind (cell, etc.). This is YOUR time for YOU; during this period nothing else matters, or exists.  As our first week together, I would like to start off with the most simplest and yet one of the most rewarding experiences: meditation.


When you've found the perfect spot, get comfortable and situate yourself in a position where you will be able to be still and unbothered for at least half an hour.  Take in the view, and if you couldn't make it out into the world - no worries! A quiet space alone is more than enough - be it your room, a library, etc. - just enjoy your company.  Moving forward, open up your notebook and start to write whatever comes to mind - free flowing thoughts with no restraints.  After a few minutes or until you feel ready, put it away and off to the side - then close your eyes, breathe deeply, really focusing on each breath - in & out - and clear your mind.  As thoughts begin to arise ("this is silly,"  "..what will I be eating later," "I wonder.." etc. etc.), listen to what is being 'said.' - Is it purposeful, positive ?  That may not be the case starting off, but pay attention to the energy - how you FEEL - release all thought, and just BE.  Stillness and silence here is a beautiful thing in which can bring about so much magic if you solely allow.  As negative thoughts/energy arises, zap it away - just like that, and forbid it from entering your ever so clear frequency of purity and love.  Sit and enjoy your time, breathing in the Universe and just BEING.  Give yourSelf 15 minutes (that's not much in correlation to a day's supposed worth, right? ..and this is YOU we are speaking of, YOU DESERVE IT!  After wrapping up some time here, new thoughts, ideas, discoveries may have been had/made - So, now - take out your notebook again, and write away!  I suggest doing this every time - prior & before - in order to see your growth not only over time, but as you step into your Self & center, and as you awaken anew. 

   
 
 
 

  

This is solely the beginning, you are blessed light and together we shall shine.


xx
