The #SheLivesFree Picnic
She Lives Free
Do you feel it? It's early morning rising for the sole purpose to be the first that day to watch the waves roll in on your favourite beach. It's dressing in something that makes you feel like you could take on the world... but choosing to lie in the sun instead, because today, that's what you need. It's lying there, listening to Lou Reed and hearing something you haven't heard before in a song you've played a thousand times. It's getting lost in books, in music, in art, in culture, in the eyes of the ones you love. It's getting lost literally, in new towns, in new countries, in the beautiful chaos of your own mind. It's grabbing the hand of your soul sister in one single moment of clarity as an idea forms between you in symbiosis. It's well-trodden boots, messy hair and sparkling eyes. It's living each day with an intent to feel beautiful, and to find beauty in each moment...
It's eight women, bare-foot down to the seaside on a sunny Autumn morning in Byron Bay. It's a cover of Old Pine by Ben Howard being sung along with the waves crashing like it was always meant to be listened to. It's the bubbling anticipation of groovin' to more live tunes that day. It's a candle burning, grounding plant-based food, and making a memory that will last far longer than the polaroids we snapped... or this perfect weather.
To celebrate one of our favourite festivals, Bluesfest, we decided to host a picnic with some of our local women and two lucky competition winners. We woke up at dawn and headed straight to The Roadhouse for coffee (because anything before coffee is just sleepwalking for us). Afterwards, we created this perfect little boho space as the sun rose. Our secret Tallows beach access is almost always empty - it was just us and the sea that day.
When our guests arrived in a beautiful Kombi from Coast 58, we spent the morning in a dreamy bell tent, listening to Nick Cunningham play beautiful tunes and eating amazing vegan food from 100 Mile Table.
To our gorgeous guests, thank you for coming.
To anyone reading this - thank you for sharing this special little sun-stained memory with us.
