I don’t know about you but the Back-To-School vibe has swept me up and is leading me to revamp, re-design, go to bed early and wake up with a journal at the crack of dawn. Recently over tea with a friend I divulged my recent secret obsession with orange as I wore and orange dress and drank orange juice. “What is that about?”
Orange color meanings (the mini-version, the list is far more extensive!) – health, cheer, money, sex, love, art and the creative.
Could there be a cooler color?!
Carnelian is one of my go-to stones any time of year. The second chakra, or energy center, of your body just below your navel is the center of money, of sex and of creativity. Orange gemstones- and everything orange- stimulate this area if it is under-active! The necklace above is from Etsy. If you are adventurous you can string your own!
This intricate wall reminds me of Prep School. Clean and pristine yet high minded and sophisticated. It’s a very snappy and young and brilliant.
While I am usually so out of the Fall holiday loop, this year will feature lots of DIY couture pumpkins for sure….as well as pumpkins in the kitchen (stew, candy, breads) in a very many ways!
I simply can not give up smoothies because the temperature is dropping…I just add less ice and add some spice! If you add some ginger (grated is a bit tough, try to add some to the juicer) to your orange juice it will become “warmer” as a drink. Whirl in some coconut milk & cream and you have a fall smoothie breakfast-in-a-glass!
My own reading nook is getting a revamp, and an orange leather sofa is coming out of storage soon. The life affirming nature of orange is particularly stirring if you are studying lots of healing arts or just love feel-good books…!
Soon I have to message Louise at Tabletonic to find out exactly how much of a fortune it would or wouldn’t be to have her gorgeous feather juju hats shipped from Australia to my place in LA! I LOVE them She has the BEST ones!!!
Ready for Fall yet?! I’m putting together a reading list and some music next…! Meanwhile, HERE is some feng shui for any season change if you can’t quite adjust yet! xoxo Dana
