a poem, a birthday, a new shop & soon a new decade!!! 🌸

 hey beautiful lovelies🌸

it is december!!! 😍
it's time for all the magic of anticipation, arrival of christmas...the birth of jesus christ and all celebrations that comes with that. i am so excited since i am going home to uddevalla, sweden to be with my mom aunt and other dear ones i love and hold dear at home💜💜💜

we have experienced a whole november though:) how was yours? for me there was my birthday, i too opened up my new shop where i sell a tiny selection of my fine art prints ( soon to be a bigger selection) and i got the new magazine "kyrkobladet" by the swedish church in london; where my self portrait and poem was published (which i will share with you in this post😊). 

something astounding occurred to me this morning, in about 4 weeks we have finished a whole decade. i have been so focused on entering a new decade that i forgot the one we have just devoured. ohlalala what a ride this decade has been. i say thank you!!! thank you universe/ god for all that you have taught me (so far). 
soon we have finished a whole decade
there is so much work to do to protect and love our planet earth🌸🐣🐢🐒

anyways
...
here is a print i am soon to add to my shop
it is a composite from a couple of self-portraits (from 2014 and 2015) and a couple of still life of roses from this past november.

i am dreamingly longing for you my dear sisters

she is thriving while cleaning the air in my flat:)))
her name is jenny christina
she is named after my adorable friend 
the artist
(whom was a partner in crime getting the baby seed of this beauty)

this candelabra a neighbour of mine had decided to toss away this morning, thanks!!!
 i think it looks perfect here in my flat:)))
 i plan to decorate it so it becomes more flowery and victorian
 (we'll see if that actually happens...💜😊maybe i should leave it clean?)

 my (first goal of 2020) project for next spring is my
 "le spectre de la rose" short film. 
one where i will be dancing a tiny variation from a ballet. 
i might mix it with some of my prose/ poetry. 

here is the first pair of ballerina shoes i worn out for this project

of course a lot of play with the beauty of the rose

to each moment prepare oneself to be touched by beauty 💜

 my primer to devour and to nourish myself
...
that is what i am contemplating right now
the thought came from a podcast i listened to by
talking about haiku poetry🌸
(actually the beatuy of onbeing with krista tippet
 is my fave podcast)
this together with the magic of walt whitman's way of life,
 way of creating poetic art
mary oliver of course comes to mind!!!
my mantra fits in too:)))
which not only rules my life but
 too runs through most of my works, since 2014

so there has been a month and more since i wrote here last. the time has gone so fast! i have been focusing on improving my daily habits, daily practices of how i want my future life to be and i am to be behave in that new spectrum. 
about exactly that:))

i did buy "a yogic path" 
by sahara rose and 
the first card i picked out of the whole deck 
was about me to focus on my dharma, 
my question was: what am i to focus on from now on? 
and i picked the card of dharana💓
i have since worked with this deck a couple of more times and it is almost how scary how it directs together with my question and intuition. this is my first time ever exploring the magic of oracle cards, or maybe it's just the magic of sahara rose that i am ones again am experiencing (i own all her books which mainly is about ayurveda and how to live in accordance to this ancient wisdom/ medicine/ self care practices etc in today's truth).

here is a selfie me after having had my roots done
by the lovely lisa
at
i have to say, 
each time i am so happy about the result and
 of her skill of her craft
never ever need to worry about the result🌸

my birthday is coming up:) november 12th
and since my dear friend sarah has gone to experience the magic of madeira 
she gifted me with loads of pink perfection roses
about a week ago already
 which i have played around with:)))
magic rose

i too mixed the roses with a bunch of flowers 
that i had previously dried and 
created a few double exposures
triple exposure

the swedish chuch in london and its magazine just came out, 
i am waiting dearly to hold the issue in my hands:) 
but it can now be viewed online!
i will share my poem with you in my next blogpost december 3rd! 
 then i can show you the magazine itself!
fine art photography
here is a screen grab from the online version:)
💜
are you there god? it's me alice.

my lovely desktop😂🌷
here is a composite image i created from a couple of shoots
one with the dear talented celine buckens and 
another featuring a bee:)

this dear has now become my alla helgona angel 

and this fluffiness gifted me with her presence yesterday
it had been a while
one just have to kneel down and she rushed to you like nobody's business
just being perfection perfect wonderful
such joys she brings every time i get to caress her:)))

oh and it is decided:))) i am going home for christmas!!!
it has been a while.
so december 20th to 27th = uddevalla, sweden💜
uddevalla

uddevalla


seize this very minute;
what you can do, or dream
you can, begin it;
boldness has genius, power
and magic in it.


YOU ARE SUBLIME
don't forget🌸🌷🍄

STAY GOLD 🌸🌸🌸

a blooming summer day dream

that is how the summer felt like
a dream to make way for new beginnings
🌸🌸🌸
is that not equally beautiful?
i mean all those hopes and wishes to transform 
and
to embody being THAT girl/  woman!
such excitements that thought gives me😊

a blooming summer day
alice saga wildflower garden

i created a self portrait in this wild flower garden when i lived in east dulwich, these wildflowers were planted in the park of dulwich village. i have sooo manipulated to make my point. but the magic of the flowers are a truth on its own😊

this period of now is of especially sadness, 3 years ago now i lived with panic. i thought i would never have a home of my own. i had no stability. i saw no future no safety.  this panic inside me was every day for more than 2 months and when i finally got what i wanted i still lived with panic ofr more about 2 years.  today, 3 years later, is like another world, one i am still healing in and starting to feel somewhat safe. that safety has gifted me with being able to move on a tiny bit. my talents of course never left me and my imagination helped through it all ( by pretending) but the hurt is there...to jump to conclusions of  others not wanting well for me...i don't wanna dwell on this so that will have to be it. 

i still feel ashamed about what happened and can't speak freely about it,
maybe because i am not healed yet. i can't say that i am in a good place.
when i can, i am sure i can be of help for others:))

fall is really happening and this comfy thing is what i wore today
a vintage butterfly dress bought from beyond retro
a jumper from an hm collection a few years back
 (my goal is to not buy fast fashion at all anymore,
 but still i will use what i already own...)
alice saga

i am sure you do know i have been a 100% vegan since april 1st, plus being gluten free since 2015 (it completely healed me from 7 day pains each month... and i credit the book grain brain this transformation, THANKS, even though i do NOT subscribe to all of the advice here since i am a vegan).

i do have a couple of sweetness goodness days a month
which sort of will be part of my title 
for a vegan gluten free goodies sweet thingies book
today i created my almond cake and it is delicious
especially with swedish glace soy ice cream 
and
meridian crunchy peanutbutter
almond cake
i am soon to share this recipe:)))
vegan cake by alice saga

stay gold:)))
a reminder to myself💜
poetry

i finished the brilliant book of jane austen, pride & prejudice.
 if you have not read the book
 please do it is so wonderfully perfect
 in the language and description of human beings!!!  
(or shall i say english people to this day)
oh dear how i wanna be elizabeth bennet and her mr darcy
oh i can be SUCH a romantic😊
no correction i AM A romantic
we'll see what happens with that for me

 now i have started to embraced the journey of 
(3 books in one from audible)

this had helped me tremendously to create my
next poem for the swedish church in london
and its magazine
kyrkobadet:)

if you wanna be part of the journey,
 please follow me on instagram

🌷🌷🌷
something new i share is my piano journey:)))
