Hi Lovelies!

I´ve been so busy the last week, as I´m finishing my trimester at uni Wednesday next week. Which means, I have three final assessments to finalise, and two presentations. I got my designs back from my maker last week, super happy with the result, did my photo shoot this Saturday. Feel like I got most things under control, which funny enough makes me stressed. The fact that I got everything under control, makes me feel like there must be something that have to go wrong, haha.. Stupid uni stress. Anyway I  wanted to share a few photos from the shoot, to show you guys what I´ve made.

My brand is a ethical boho-luxe label, so my goal is to only use recycled /vintage and organic natural materials.

Hope you are making sure you are not stressing to much, whether it is with work, uni, personal life or all of them

Hi everyone,

hope you are spending your time more wisely than going on a mental shopping spre today, as it is the so called Black Friday. Such a silly American concept if you ask me. I have spent quality time with a friend outside, enjoying the blue ocean and our green surroundings. Hopefully you decide to spend your time more wisely today, see the beauty in the free things around you, maybe consider boikotting this crazy shopping day, appreciate the things you already have in your life.


Sorry for bad image quality, due to our camera going dead on our weekend away.

I just love my cute swimsuit / bodysuit from a small label called Love Stories, they have the cutest underwear and swimwear of really high quality. It is so worth investing a little extra for good quality products that is made well.

Hope you enjoy you weekend consciously

Happy Wednesday everyone!

We had a great little adventure this past weekend, to Jervis Bay, a lovely 3h drive from Sydney. City life can really strangle you if you don´t get yourself out amongst beautiful nature. Jervis Bay offered just what we needed, a great scenic drive, one of the whitest beach in the world, dolphins and great nature hikes.

Unfortunately we forgot our camera charger, so most images from this weekend are phone taken.

– Good Monday everyone –

“One Small Positive Thought In The Morning, Can Change Your Whole Day”

We just got back to Sydney after a great weekend spent in Jervis Bay, away from traffic, city noise and stress surroundings. My body has been filed up with new energy and motivation for the next coming weeks.

Have a great Monday lovelies, hope you managed to fill up your bodies as well

Happy Friday everyone!

Hope your week has been as productive as mine, less than three weeks til my second last trimester at uni is over, which means; MY HEAD IS SPINNING AROUND.

As I´m studying fashion design and branding, I do not have to physically make my designs my self, I will do all the fabric & material sourcing, build the brand, folios, logo, design the collection, organise photoshoot, meet and communicate my designs with my makers and so on.

img_20161116_210227 2016-11-17-04-18-26-1

Sustainable and ethical fashion is a major part of my fashion brand, which means I´m only sourcing natural fabrics, as much organic as I can find and the best part; finding beautiful vintage garments to reuse for my designs.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead, Jens and I are going away this weekend, will share some photos with you guys soon x

Hi lovelies, hope you are having a great weekend, don´t let life get in the way of your dreams.

If someone told me four years ago that I would be studying fashion design and branding on the other side of the planet ( Australia), living in a hostel for over a year, working on a lime farm picking limes, get a phone call about my grandmothers sudden death, not being able to see her one last time or be on Australian TV, feel extreme sadness, happiness, loneliness, excitement among so many other life changing experiences; I don´t know if I would have believed it.

Our lives are so short that it´s not worth living the life expected of you, dream crazy and let the unexpected happen.

pb101202 pb101201

I want to continue being crazy;

pb101203 pb101204

Living my life the way I dream it,

pb101205 pb101206

And not the way other people want it to be.

Dream Crazy & Live Big

Hi sweethearts, hope you are all having a wonderful day.

The magazine I blog for; Femelle.no is running a competition, announcing “This Years Femelle Blogger 2016”. It would be amazing if you took your time to give me, Ginger Gypsy a vote HERE, if you think I deserve it. I´ve been a Femelle blogger for 4-5 months now, so there are many other bloggers that has been a part of the network much longer, that also deserve to win. Still worth a shot, as I´m super happy to be apart of the network and will continue to be.

If you give me a vote I will be really grateful

Thank you beautiful x

Happy Sunday everyone, I just finished another weekend of work, game night, good wine and a quick healthy sustainable burger dinner last night. Jens and I were both in the mood of not having to cook, as usually I love cooking I needed a day off after a busy and very productive week.

I love the fact that people are becoming more aware of the massive food issue we are facing, and are really making changes to their lives, restaurants and cafes are approaching a more sustainable food way. In Sydney plant based food options are really great, making it so much easier to not eat meat.

My favourite burger placed is called Soul Burger and it is all plant based delicious burgers, even hard core burger lovers will approve of these burgers.

Enjoy your Sunday lovelies

It´s the time of year that these beautiful tree´s are flowering deep purple flowers around Sydney.

It means Summer is upon us, more light in the evenings and good energies in the air and it does make you feel great. Seeing the nature flower reminds me of how fragile it is, being constantly abused by humans. Take a step back look around you, stop abusing, start appreciating and slow down your lifestyle.

Before we can change our current life patterns,

The soul tests us to see if we have learned from them.

pb021151

If we can recognise the underlying needs that allowed that pattern to repeat,

pb021156

Then we can transition into the next phase of our life.
