HELLO 2020 🌸🌸🌸🙏🙏🙏

(update 2nd feb 2020...i am trying to figure out how to create my blogposts from now on. i am not sure of  its format for 2020! in the meantime there is my instagram stories where i post daily from my normal daily life and there is my facebook page😊🌸)

hi:)))

how are you doing? how does it feel to have entered a new decade?
 is this not magically exciting?!!!😊

it feels like the awareness is arising day by day, so fast. just the awareness of we us being all one. we are all mini universes living in "the universe". and/ so meaning what i do to you i do to me and vice versa. do no harm. stay kind. to come from a place of love instead of fear. 

2019 was a major year for me (in comparison to myself from former years that is), i did so much better health wise. i went on a trip to france:))) after decades of being addicted to pepsi max, i ditched that and april 1st i became 100% vegan (with a couple of days in france where some chocolate happened). and the bravest thing i did was to finally go home to my little home town in sweden, uddevalla. it was sooo healing for me. i feel much more connected now with me, that is funny since i am with me all the time, that close ones can make you feel whole and like oneself, oh hallelujah such joy.

was your 2019 good and better when you compare it to your own previous years?
how i wish it was!

2020
my first big goal is to accomplish a short film late spring or summer, 
which in the planning stages i call
 "le spectre de la rose" 
(the spirit of a rose)
it will include me dancing a little ballet scene
the planning and thinking of this has been going on for 2-3 years,
🌸🌸🌸
a lot of my still life works has been influenced these 2 past months by this project

then i have a few other things:)
i am in the process of journaling my intentions for this new year so will elaborate in the coming blogpost in february😊

so here are few experiments 
for a maybe maybe be part of my project
the feeling is right 
we'll see if the actual stills will work with the short film


 a self-portrait taking in epping after my trip to france
i was so filled with inspiration

this self-portrait is from my trip to villeneuve les avignon, france
to nourish & to devour the moment

this is how i felt about that beautiful trip
the beauty of spring in france

on a sunny day wearing a vivetta dress & chloe glasses
 comfy look for a very rainy englad day!!!

theee ocean in my hometown
here we are overlooking gustafsberg
where i am to stay for 10 days in august
in a little yellow cabin:))) by the ocean.

our town square in christmas time

one of my best friends ever
therese
she has an astounding view over the ocean:)))

this selfie of us was taken by her:)))
i am so happy here!
funnily enough, i don't have many images to share because
 i filmed almost everything and 

i came home and started to write magic wishes
 to some of my close ones for 2020

this is what i am currently going through
all various notes/ ideas from 2019

 what to implement for 2020


i have been exploring with various double exposure type apps
another rose

i explored a still life of some antique cutlery i own

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

goethe
oh dear how happy i am that today is today
🌸🌸🌸🙏🙏🙏

i will see you feb. 1st😊
from now on i am to post every first saturday of each month

lots of love
alice

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

 hey beautiful lovelies🌸

(update from a january 7th of 2020, 
from this year i am to exploring creating my monthly blogposts 
on saturdays instead of tuesdays, 
so i will meet you january 11th🌷)

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

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

a nature faerie ballerina

the brilliant actress emma thompson is on the cover

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🌸🌷🍄
