OOTD: Independent Soul

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.” – Charlotte Brontë

Hello Spiiirits! I hope you had a marvelous 4th of July/4th of July Weekend. Though I’m not big on the America-centric holiday, I know I did. Nothing like a little celebration with friends &/or family to kick off the month right? Speaking of kicking off the month can you believe we have now entered the 7th month of 2014???  Summer is in full swing and we are more than halfway through the year! Crazy. But I couldn’t be more thankful.

At any rate, I wanted to share my 4th of July outfit with you lovely spiiirits!  Triiin & I were invited by our lovely friends Ash & Kwith to enjoy some backyard chillin’ & grillin’. We had the most delicious grilled veggies and grilled seafood (salmon, lobster, & shrimp to boot!). And the night was topped with a wicked fireworks show from an amazing view. Great day 🙂

Crotchet Top: Thrifted, Burgundy Bandeau: Shasa, Skirt: F21, Scarf (for turban): Walmart, Pinstripe Sneakers: Target, Choker: Bombay Fashions, Pyramid Studs: F21, Crossbody Bag: A street vendor we call “Rasta Man” :), Mixed Metal Bracelet: Glitter, Rings (Snake Ring, Coral “crystal ball” Ring, & Earth Tone Oil Paint Ring): Gift + Beauty Supply, Cat-Eye Sunglasses: Santee Alley

The daytime was HOTTTTTTTTT, so I aimed to wear an outfit that could handle the heat, while being stylish & comfortable. No matter how hot in the day, LA tends to cool off substantially at night, so I brought along a yellow cardigan to keep me warm when it got cool out.

As you can see by some of the pictures, Triiin’s outfit was fab & killin’ it, also! If you want details to Triiin’s outfit, just let me know in the comments below! Also…we sell cute custom crops like the one she is wearing at FreeSpiiirit. Email for inquiries.

Spiritual Sundays: The Views of an Awakened Man || Russell Brand

Sunday, across the board, is a day commemorated to religious gatherings and dissemination of spiritual knowledge that is supposed to get you through the week.

Though I don’t believe in religiosity, so to speak, I do believe that it is important to consistently devote time to the growth of the your spiritual being. I try to set time aside out of everyday to do this in some regard (whether it is meditating, reading something spiritual, or doing yoga, etc.). However, I know that it is easy to fall short of this and that’s why people rely on Sunday to bring them back to the light and prepare them to deal with their next week of life.

Well, even if Sunday is the only day you get to pay attention to your Spirit Man, then I want to aid in that weekly feeding of your souls. I can’t blog about something spiritual every time I blog but I can make sure once a week, I try to bless you all with some soul growth and knowledge so that we may grow and progress, hopefully becoming a bit better with each new thing our spirits learn and explore.

And that’s why I have decided to start, Spiritual Sundays.

I was browsing through WordPress, looking for good reads from other awesome blogs, of course, and I stumbled across this video of Russell Brand on a blog called Grateful Living Now. Now if you don’t know, Russell Brand is actually quite the spiritually enlightened being. In this video he was straight preachin’!! Not in that judgmental, condemning way, no no no. But preaching pure love, light, unity, and oneness consciousness. Take a look at this video and open yourself, even if only momentarily, to Russell Brand’s perspective and inspiring light. He’s speaking real truth here!

I hope you enjoyed the video. Feel free to ask questions or share your thoughts.

Endless Love & Light to All You Lovely Beings.

Namaste.
