Simple Escapism

The past few weeks have been hectic and stressful. Work is crazy, moving is never easy, and I just don't seem to be feeling myself. A friend and I were joking about having quarter life crises and I'm praying this is not the case!

However - there are ways of combatting this! I've come back from work this evening and immediately switched off. A little later I plan to watch a movie and do some research on a retreat I want to take later in the year. For now I have some wonderful relaxing music in the background, and am getting truly stuck into this gift from the lovely Triné!

I'd not heard of The Secret Garden before, but I am so pleased at the discovery! Who knew colouring could be so therapeutic and relaxing? The author is a wonderful illustrator with so much talent. Looking at her website I see that she also has a second book - Wonderlands, which might be in my possession once I'm all therapy-ed out with this masterpiece.

Coupled with a herbal tea, the music and my detox retreat to see me through this strangely tough period, I feel as though I am in good hands.

Take a look at a video from the book below.

  1. I LOVE the idea of this, I haven't done any colouring in for years but I can see why it would be therapeutic :) x
