Moon to Moon

Moon to Moon : Smudge Sticks by Catherine Rising


So I have been absent on and off for a while. Work, motherhood, infertility have all been contributing factors..... life can be really fucking intense!!! Whilst caught in the intensity it can be so hard to take a step back and remember who you are, make time for looking after yourself and forget the importance of the things you enjoy doing just because.

Plants are magic magazine ... issue 2 out now... get yours here


Many times over the last few months I have sat here staring at the computer and thought "today i will compile a blog post" but the inspiration just wouldn't come. I would look at picture after picture of beautiful homes but began to feel nothing. Totally caught in a rut. I have toyed  for months with the idea of making Moon to Moon more of a lifestyle blog but been scared by the idea that readers come here for interiors and would no longer come here if it changed...... but actually (as much as i totally appreciate the loyalty of my magnificent readers) it is my place to come and chill. My mood board created initially to help me get through the stress of my nurse training.

Fentimans & Bloom's Gin and Rose Lemonade


This will never be a proper lifestyle blog. You aren't going to hear the ins and outs of my life, see pictures of my son modeling big brands, or cheesy images me endorsing hoovers etc... but I am going to share more of the beautiful things that I find along the way that I want to share and remember. Independent labels, handmade, homemade and thrifty finds.

On this post are some of the images I have shared on Instagram over the last few months of items that I have enjoyed or spotted :)

Thank you to those of you who have messaged and keep coming back

Yay! Good to see you back! Of course, I look forward to more homes....
But I'll keep coming back to see what's inspiring you. There are "seasons" to life and instead of boxing one's self in to expectations that are "unseasonal" let inspiration flow as it comes. Ispiration flows best when it flows naturally, I believe.

Oh so good to have you back. Post 38 I've been looking for you ever so patiently. I also love the homes and interiors, but it's your kind words, quirky thoughts and presence that has me looking for a new post from you. You help me through my day and remind me the world is filled with kindred spirit. Thanks for reaching those clever hands of yours out of life's rut and keeping your blog present. I can tell your from experience...the ruts are temporary. Truly they are. XOXO

Ms Wilson said...

Good heavens. Now where did that Ms Wilson show up from. I'm Lynn.

Hi Gabi. It's your space and should reflect whatever you want it to. And there's always something home-related to find in your archives. One of my favorite posts was the info-graphic about different things to put in your bath! Do what feels right for you and know that you've got friends out here wishing you well.

I am so glad you are back! I missed your writings and picture. You seem to always find the beautiful in life and it lifts my spirits. I, too, have these crazy dips in life but like Jan's song, I keep telling myself to hang on as 'it's just a ride.' I know from following you for years now that you are a strong woman so hang in there! Blessings to you and your son.

Alex said...

I'm all for it! I like your taste and just enjoy the eye candy, regardless of what it is.

Katie Meyer said...

I'm looking forward to whatever is next from you!

Lovely to see you posting again. Life is all about change, so thank you for sharing about yours. I'm sure your readers are changing too, I know I am! So don't worry about there being less interiors, you do you, and we will follow along! <3

Welcome back Gabi and I sorry that life has not be easy for you recently. I really missed you whilst you were away and kept on checking in just to make sure..... I discovered your blog a few years ago and have found it to be thought provoking, informative and inspirational. Your posts are little bursts of sunshine so please keep them coming but above all be true to yourself. I think that's what separates your blog from so many others.

Barbara said...

Gabi your blog has given me - and so many others - immense joy over the years, thank you for sharing your interior loves to a wildly apprciative audience. I'm sorry to hear that life has been so painful recently, especially after all you've been through.

Wishing you much love and healing xx

p.s. Would LOVE to see more lifestyle-y posts, you like the good stuff! - feel you've been heading down this particualr route for a while ; )
