The whimsical musings of a modern day gypsy.

Spending the Easter weekend sorting through + organising some of my old things. And finding some sweet treasures along the way!


I look at these polaroids taken 3 years ago + shake my head in wonder about all that has transpired since that moment in time.

It seems that right now, I’m going through a phase of clearing + letting go of lots of things, to make space for a new life, a new way of being, a new beginning.

Perfect for Easter really, isn’t it?! Are you letting go of, or clearing anything in your life right now?

HELLO AUSTRALIA! DAMN YOU’RE PRETTY…

I’m digging deep for the words that I can’t yet express in full. Because it’s too soon to fully grasp what’s happening right now. All I know is there’s some big and magical changes in the air right now. (Did you see that full moon eclipse?! Like, woah!)

So let’s rewind, to when this all began.

In the last week of March, it was decision time again: Where shall…

"This is the first eclipse that initiates a time frame of the greatest intensity. It is a time to evaluate what you are here for and whether or not you can gather up and use all that you have learned and studied and experienced in this life, taking it and stepping up into your responsibility to move forward and to evolve. There will be a lot of complaining about how hard it is and how unprepared we are for this great task, but in the end, you are all you have; your talents, your wisdom, your commitment and your willingness to do the work. Turn the intensity of this time into something inspiring as you face the unknown, and be in gratitude.

You hold a huge amount of energy in your hands. It is up to you where you channel it. Into fear, doubt and negativity? Or into joy, inspiration and excitement for what the future may bring. Intensity can be productive, focused and extremely fulfilling if channeled into the right things. Don’t get distracted by other people’s dramas and negativity. Be inspired, grateful and full of awe!” 🌙

The Metrics of Belonging. Where Do Gypsetters Call Home?

“So…  Where’s home?”

It’s a question I get asked a lot. I usually respond with a cheeky smile and a wink and say “Right here.”

“Where do you live? Where do you go back to?” Is the next inquisitive question.

“No where.” I reply.

Which seems to leave most strangers both curious and dissatisfied. So they probe deeper. And I explain a short version of my story: I’m half Italian (my Papa is from…
