Do you ever get lost in your daydream? Waiting for tomorrow to be better than NOW. Do you want to feel ignited by something in the future and feeling so disconnected to yourself and this beautiful moment? It's time to take a few deep breaths, connect to you & the magic of now. Feel your heart open and the beauty of life open up before you. This is the inspiration behind The Rose, our first Artist Inspired Limited Edition Bowern Yoga Mat.

“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are going to get.”Forrest Gump had it right: life is a beautiful mystery.Just like dipping your hand into the box and unravelling a mysterious flavoured chocolate.Sweet, salty, gooey, or maybe a turkish delight flavoured chocolate that will have me screwing up my face in disgust and spitting it in the bin, questioning whether I ever want to put my hand back in the chocolate box.We can never truly know what tomorrow will bring.Yet we spend so much of our time planning, so we can predict what it will bring.A little insane, right?Maybe there's comfort in knowing where tomorrow leads or where you think it does anyway.Don't get me wrong; some planning is necessary, to work in with life's schedules etc etc. But do you plan so much that there's no room for the magic of the universe to weave in an unexpected surprise?We are so afraid of the unknown, so afraid of leaving a day free without any plans, that we plan so we can predict.And then we complain about the mundane day ahead.You see, the universe is purely responding to you.Giving you exactly what you want.Let me ask you this... do you wake up every morning and run through the day in your head before you've even rolled out of the covers?“Get dressed, eat some breakfast, walk out the door, catch a bus, pass the same buildings, go to a coffee shop, get a coffee, roll into work, log in, open your emails...”It's not even 7:03am and your mind has just run through the exasperated day ahead.How would you describe it? Same same, boring, disconnected, predictable, draining, lacking stimulation, robotic?Lightbulb moment: these are the vibes you give to the universe and... guess what?You get exactly what your mind asks for. You get the same as the energy you put out every single morning.So really, you should be thanking the universe.It's giving you exactly what you want! How's that for predictable?So, here's a little tip: start the day expecting more.Rise with a slice of gratitude and declare, “Something new and exciting is going to happen today!”Stay present every moment, open your arms to the day and expect the unexpected. And maybe, day by day you'll be uncovering these new and exciting things.You'll be attracting new and exciting people you never could have imagined meeting before.So from me to you...Start asking for more, expecting more from the universe.If you don't rise, how can the universe rise to meet you?And it might just take your breath away.x
This post is for Y O U. The good vibes, you’ve been sending Bowern Luxury Yoga Mats and supporting our journey are about to be rebounded right back to you. I’m such a big believer in the more you give in life, the more you receive. So, to be honest, I’ve been blown away by the response I’ve received especially in the last year.So many people have reached out and shared their thoughts, dreams and also fears of walking a similar sometimes crazy roller coaster ride. Especially one that requires you to believe in yourself. It has honestly been incredible few months, I have a feeling it is only the very, very beginning and also a high-five to get my ass into high-speed gear and keep going.It’s incredible what you can achieve, when you realise where you are is no longer where you want to be.There is also incredible power in gratitude, it’s like an instant switch from what it lacking to how awesome you are doing. I’m so grateful for everyone who has helped in some way. Words of wisdom, shared cups of tea, wine or introduced me to someone who can help on the journey.For the late nights, early mornings, words of enthusiasm. People close to me and others I barely know, you are all rock.THANK- YOU!So, on here, hopefully I can inspire you to walk a path true to you and you can follow this journey.. where ever it leads. For now, the sun is delicious, soak it up, grab your Bowern and head to your favourite outdoor spot.Nothing like some sunshine, salt water & yoga to brighten your day.

Do you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain? Or making love at midnight ... da da da da da da.What do you love? I mean what gets you so excited that you jump out of your skin and grin from ear to ear just thinking about all those things you love?I have a funny little notion that all those things you love ... are a part of who you are. I use to hide all the loves of my life, the ones that weren't cool, the ones that no-one else loved, the ones that were my life. Why? Because I would stand out like a weird, hippie-loving, pink, always dreaming kind of gal. What do you love?And what if all the things I love aren't cool - maybe I'm (gasp) not cool? The thought of being uncool was heart breaking at that age. So I started to hide all of this uncool things from the world ... until I realised one major thing in my shift to adulthood. I was hiding me from the world. So, as my story goes, I changed pretty much everything and brought all those things I love back into the spotlight with glistening lights and an epic Disney tune. And I stepped back into the light with my long list of loves.Rosé champagne, crystals, Minions (all of them), turquoise jewellery, The Collective Hub, chai lattes, getting lost in cities I don't know, silence in the mountains after fresh snow has fallen, being silly, my incredible family and all my friends who pretty much are my family, rom coms from the '80s, Ernest Hemingway, the ocean, dancing, Spanish soap operas, Paris, not being busy, romanticism, dreaming and doing those things I never thought I could and the list goes on.And you know what.. everything I love is cool, because (shock) I think it's cool.What do you love? And what are you hiding from the world, just to fit in? If you want to dye your hair purple and wear candy striped tights, do it - because it's WHO YOU ARE.I caught up with an old friend today. It was 9:30am and this suave-talking Italian barista offered us rose instead of coffee and because we both love rose ... it was a no brainer.What do you love? Hint: if you don't know, start looking around and figuring it out.And it won't be so much as figuring it out; it will be more like remembering the young you who loved everything so much.Find everything, from the uncool to the non-trendy and the weirdly out-there things that make up you. Find them, do them, rediscover them, love them all over again and put them - and you - back in the spotlight.x
