Bex is a floral artist and makes the most beautiful wreaths and dried floral arrangements and also runs creative botanical workshops. Mother of two beautiful boys, she is currently working as a brand marketer whilst she establishes her creative lifestyle business.
Find out what inspires her most about nature and how she balances motherhood, work and her creativity. Please welcome Bex…
Happy May everybody, even though so far the month has been pretty chilly here, there are beautiful blooms at every turn. Here in England, the countryside looks particularly abundant during the month of May, and provides some wonderful inspiration.
As part of the ‘Inspired By Nature’ series, today I’m talking to a busy mother who is deeply focused on seasonal and family rhythms. Through her life with her husband and four children, North, Indigo, Juniper and Sage, she works to help other parents create clarity, balance and rhythm within their days with her Seasonal E-Guides. Having lived in Australia for nearly a decade, this family decided to put down new roots in the Canadian countryside. Meagan explains “My vision is to connect and inspire mothers, carers and communities with each other so that they feel empowered to raise children who are wholly connected with themselves (head, heart and hands) and to the planet. I believe from the bottom of my heart that peace begins in the home.”
Please welcome Meagan from Whole Family Rhythms…
I know, I know, it’s more than half way through February. It only seems like a moment ago we were all in that post-Christmas, beginning-of-January lull where things are quiet and you have the whole year stretched ahead of you. I’m not sure how we’re a half-term through school already. Anyway, I’m here today with the Monthly Voice for January; here’s what we’ve been up to over the last month and some things that I’ve been loving…
I’m really excited to share the next instalment of the ‘Inspired By Nature’ series with you today. I first came across this lady on Instagram and just loved the creativity and colours in her feed. She is a natural dyer, who loves to forage for plants. Last year she wrote and self published her first print book. When she’s not dying scarves, fabric and wooden beads, she is experimenting with plants and kitchen waste such as avocado skins, pomegranate skins and tea bags to make dye. She also has an E-book available, which I can throughly recommend. It’s a brilliant guide if you want to try your hand at natural dyeing but don’t know where to start.
Please welcome Rebecca Desnos…

It’s been a while since I shared any of the wonderful photographs that are captured using the hashtag #slowlivingforlife, so I thought I would pop in with some Winter favourites. Here are a selection of images that make me exhale and feel calm just by looking at them.
