In September, we posted the ultimate guide to autumn fashion accessories. Now, as the Northern hemisphere enters the warmer months of spring and summer, it’s time once again to transform your wardrobe with seasonal clothes and accessories fit for a goddess!
Experiencing change is an unavoidable part of life, but when it happens, we often find ourselves unprepared. Being in a situation that you have no control over, such as losing your job, the death of a loved one, or being forced to move home, can leave you feeling lost, scared and uncertain. At the very least, change can be disruptive, meaning that it takes you a long time to get things back to the way you want them to be. If you’re struggling to adjust to a recent change in your life, or you know that a big change is on the horizon, then try not to panic – you’re in the right place.
It’s that time of year when everybody goes beyond the average weekly dusting, mopping and sweeping - they spring clean. Spring cleaning is an intense practice of deep cleaning and decluttering a houseto make for a new and fresh surrounding. I thought about how much emphasis is put on housework, but how very little is placed on freeing up your mind. Giving yourself a renewed sense of wellbeing could be just as refreshing as a clean house and, bringing gemstones into your home or wardrobe can help bring a new world of energy into your world.
Have you ever heard about acrostic jewellery? This jewellery is basically set with gemstones that spell out a word or message. Each gemstone represents a letter, almost like a sparkly alphabet that can be used to express your love to somebody. Acrostic jewellery was hugely popular in the Victorian and Edwardian ages. Upon recently discovering acrostic jewellery, I became even more hooked on gemstones which is something I could never could imagine as possible.
Although, not as well-known as other gemstones, Lapis Lazuli is the unsung but incredibly beautiful gemstone that, in my eyes, never fails to make an impact. The name might not invoke the same reaction as other gemstones, but the Lapis Lazuli is still one of the most popular stones today for jewellery and fashion. The Lapis Lazuli is one of my favourite gemstones, for all seasons, occasions and uses, with its milky way-esque appearance.
Not only are gemstones beautiful, the radiant rocks are also said to impact your emotional states or ‘heal’ you. I’ve always believed with unadulterated emotionsthat certain stones have special powers in the same way that my star sign can impact my week. There is a meteoric rise in number of people exploring the possibility of crystals and if you’re not the one who ensures that they have their special stones around their neck or on their desk then somebody else in your friendship circle most likely will. There is no longer a ‘hippy’ stereotype correlated with healing gemstones; I’ve seen all genders, ages and professions joining the trend. But is the powers of gemstones fact or fallacy?
Many of us turn to crystals for clarity and guidance. For many who believe in crystals and their powers, the twinkling stars above us also reveal much about our lives. So, why not combine our star signs and crystals?
Everybody knows the importance of being confident! Without confidence, many of us can find ourselves feeling voiceless and unable to connect with others. Confidence building was something that I always struggled with and as a result I often turned down opportunities or prolonged doing something important. However, I believe that wearing crystals improved my self-esteem and provided the spark to try new things. If confidence doesn’t come naturally to you then gemstones may just be worth wearing and experimenting with. I have compiled a list of stones that are believed to help gradually boost your confidence.
