Based on non-tradition and one’s own terms for fulfillment, the bohemian lifestyle can feel elusive amidst the usual conveyor-belt existence. Impossible, perhaps, to even slow down enough to consider what exactly it is that calls us, especially when we’re not taught how to listen to the intuitive cues that guide our every day.
Offering a guide to this is the intention behind combining both inspiration and essentials for bohemian living, as well as musings and how to’s for a conscious approach. Because whether it’s recognizing your true strengths, owning your shadow side, exploring your style, your astrology or your DNA– living consciously is about knowing yourself, and therefore leading a curated life, which to me it means all the right stuff (whatever that is for you) and nothing more.
But this is just the beginning: when we release all the things we don’t need, we create spaciousness for unfolding: the deeper wellness practice you’ve been craving has room to exist. You find a way to create the freedom to travel or live anywhere. Intuition begins to emerge naturally. Work becomes more efficient when it is to your own rhythm. And rather than trying to tap into your creativity, your creativity comes to you.
Globally inspired, aesthetically minded, and self-inquiry required, welcome to One Part Gypsy.
After traveling in my late teens and building my business as a creative consultant in my 20’s, I’ve now set down roots in Ojai, CA where I enjoy simple days with my family while continuing to elevate wellness and lifestyle brands worldwide.
Valuing an eclectic, experimental and unfussy approach to whole living, I’ve backpacked for nearly two years on my own, spent a month camping up and down the California coast, gone skydiving twice, bungee jumping once (never again) and leapt off an 80-foot cliff. I’ve spent 30 days meditating at a Zen Buddhist monastery and traveled high and low through many countries, most recently with my husband and I taking off for two months to live on the beaches of Nicaragua with our five-month-old and two pups.
These collective experiences inform my out-of-the-box perspective, and I continue to regularly question the status quo, reassess the way I do things, and take leaps that may feel uncomfortable at first but ultimately forge my most monumental forks in the road. I am fascinated by the inquisitive space that exists on the edge of our comfort zones and belief systems; this space is where I feel most alive. All in all, I believe that life is rich with exciting opportunities to engage our full spectrum of senses and emotions, and that the adventure has always just begun.
