Have you ever been to Japan? I miss it so much but part of that is not feeling settled right now so I’m working on changing that. I’ll definitely go back to Japan some day (hopefully soon) but it won’t be to escape, it will be to have another adventure and see even more of a country that I love (and eat so much ramen I burst!) 🇯🇵 #Japan #japanophile #nara #deerwhisperer #visitjapan #ohdeer #Narapark #naradeer #doingmybest #quietinthewild #whimsicalwonderfulwild #thewildnesstonic #gowildlyandslow #seekdiscovercreate #winterstories #momentsofmine #animallover #ig_naturelover

I’ll probably break Instagram by posting a photo of myself today!
But I just wanted to pop on to say thank you all so much for the amazing comments and messages about the post on anxiety I wrote for @aly.harte. It has literally blown me away and once again has shown me that I’m not alone in how I feel and that there’s still not enough openness and honesty about mental health online or in real life. So thank you for your support - it really means the world 😘

I also wanted to say hello 👋🏻 and introduce myself to the flurry of new followers over the last few weeks - it’s so lovely to have you here. 
In a nutshell, I’m Janine, I live in Bangor by the sea in Northern Ireland, I love the sea, am obsessed with light and would secretly love to be in a musical! Dairy Milk is my kryptonite, I’m happiest when I’m  with my special people - especially on the north coast - and my perfect day includes multiple cups of tea and a load of books! 
How about you? Tell me something fun in the comments xx

I’m not quite sure what I’m looking for here but it wasn’t that long ago that I was always looking for something.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I thought that if I just did this, or had that, that I’d be happy. That when I had gone here or taken the time to learn that, that my anxiety would go and that I’d be okay.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But I’ve since learnt that if you go through life constantly looking for something else, you’re never going to appreciate where you are right now.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So take this as your reminder to take some time this Thursday, wherever in the world you are, just to notice where you are right now.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yes your business might not be quite where you want it to be. Or maybe your home life is a bit out of sorts. It’s totally okay to want to change and grow but please don’t wish your life away. It’s the only one you’ve got 💙

Is anyone else getting a little bit sick of winter? I miss photographing flowers, evening wild swims & the feel of the sun on my skin. I’m feeling quite uninspired at the moment.

BUT ... I finally made it to 10k followers last night! This was a huge deal for me, as I’ve been covering that swipe-up for so long. Thank you to everyone who has mentioned me in their stories recently, and hello to my new followers! If there’s anything you’d like to know about me, ask below!

I’ve spend way to much time in the markets whilst being here. I’ve bought way to many of these straw/wicker bags. I’m now in the North of Bali up in Lovina. We’re off out early tomorrow to see the dolphins and go snorkelling 😍

Did you catch #shetland on TV on Tuesday night?⠀
This is a view of Lerwick from the hill - we usually see it from the sea but this is looking East from Staney Hill.⠀
Can you make out the silhouette of the Town Hall on the skyline? A beautiful building, completed in 1883, overlooking the new town (pictured).⠀

My favourite place to wild camp is at Wasdale Head! So secluded and beautiful! (Summer, 2018)

When branches sport both dead leaves and frost flowers there always seems to be something poetic in it. Now the temperature is getting warmer, the trees are no longer covered in snow and for many of them their bare branches are on show. It is clear to be seen that some of them didn't shed all of their leaves in Autumn, but kept hanging on to this dead piece of themselves. 
What dead parts of you are you holding on to? What should you be letting go of? .

Any other eucalypt fans out there?
🌿
My love for Australian flora has been growing steadily for the last few years. I never used to  see the beauty in the muted tones and somewhat unassuming tangle of the Australian bush, but now that quiet mysterious quality is exactly what draws me in. It isn't showy. You may have to look twice to find that particular shade of blue, or those tiny little yellow flowers...it's worth it. Also eucalyptus smells amazing. Native flora also looks wonderful on top of cakes (I think).
🌿
I always like to have something live, something green and beautiful in the house.  It brings me joy and also gives me something to work with if I have an impromptu cake to decorate. And natives are great because they tend to look nicer for longer. These leaves I foraged from a giant, rambling old tree in the heart of apple orchard country on our way home from swimming lessons a week ago.
🌿
 When I don't have time to hunt for plants to bring home, I go to my favourite little flower stall in Picadilly. The flowers are always beautiful and grown with love. The also sell out quickly so my advice is to get there in the morning. It's under the big old oak tree on Picadilly Road. If you want to see exactly where, have a look at my story.
🌿
And fill your house with plants!

After a few nights camped with the Corellas beneath the rivergums in NSW we've crossed back into Victoria and are heading for the mountains. For children of the West, crossing State borders comes with a thrill that must surely grow dull if you live in one of these twin-towns that dot the Murray River.

Starting to spot more and more anglers when out on walks. Must be quite peaceful down by the river as the evening falls, patience and a certain element of trickery seem to be some of the key features needed. (@leafvigurs)

I’m feeling such gratitude for this beautiful weather and new beginnings. Spring is coming. Change is coming. It’s time for fresh ideas, growth and new energy. 🌿✨

When all else fails, there’s nature. And art. We spent some time at the amazing Andy Holden exhibition, Natural Selection, that’s on in Lerwick at the moment. Soren was totally fascinated by all the tiny eggs (and he really wanted to touch them... he did such a good job not messing with all the perfect-for-messing-with things) and the huge sculptures. It's a beautiful and sensitive work, definitely go if you get the chance. (I’ll be going back without a child in tow so I can actually take some of it in 😅) well done @shetland_arts 👏🏻

These brighter mornings and ever so slightly longer days are making me so excited to get back to the hills again. Some exciting trips planned for the Spring eeee.

Farewell snow and cold, we’re on our way to a rare mid-50’s and dry week in Amsterdam. Currently waiting to board our first flight of the day and I’m getting a little giddy dreaming of wandering the canal streets with my camera and my guy, popping in to quaint cafes for a coffee or treat and sitting by the fire with a scotch in hand in one of the cozy pubs. We want to visit some of the incredible museums but nothing is set in stone and that’s the way we like to travel. Just letting the day take us wherever it wants to go. 🛫

I’ve been clearing out my cupboards and working on building a very small and deliberate wardrobe. I’ve sold (and am still selling) my perfectly good old clothes to pay for some key pieces to fill in the gaps in my postpartum wardrobe and also Lyra’s clothes. Because she’s just a small lass, I don’t buy brand new as they’re only in the clothes for seconds before they grow out again. I don’t want to contribute to fast fashion or a throw away culture and you can pick up second hand baby things of great quality at a fraction of the price of them if they were brand new (hello preowned white company!) Most days, you’ll find me in socks and jumpers knitted by my Nan, big knickers and baggy dungarees. Jon says it’s my ‘wannabe art teacher’ look, I say it’s my ‘wedgie-free comfy’ look :) My friend @greenameliawomack has been sharing some amazing and enlightening posts about fast fashion, origins of our clothes, effects of fashion on the environment and it’s certainly opened my eyes! It’s not just underpaid workers suffering for our clothing choices but the also the environment. The shocking quantities of water used in production of cotton, harmful microfibres shedding from synthetic textiles and harmful dyes are just the tip of the iceberg. I highly recommend reading her posts for some fast fashion education :) I’m certainly going to be learning some new and better habits from now in regards to my clothing decisions🌿

A poem for Wednesday afternoon //
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It Rose Like a Tapestry
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was like cold stone, yawning.
The silent gloom rose broadly, hung 
high in the vault, giving up
its hot golden rays, 
high in the open
and closed emptiness.
Thousands of little points leering,
all their breath sucked in at once; the mist brawny,
grinding with relief. The inward warmth shimmering flesh,
And bone.
For three heartbeats it burned through and,
an hour later they toasted each other,
half a hundred lines of silent day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The fallen beech tree blocks our path.  At least a couple of hundred years old, it has fallen in the autumnal storms, this year, last?  It’s hard to tell.  Life so abruptly halted yet it appears still living – glowing green with tufted moss, intact save a few broken branches on its underside, a perfect tree on the wrong plane.  Horizontal, it rests like a propped and reclining giant.  Ivy has made its home across the surface of its grey trunk for many years.  I put my eye close to the trunk and look left down the woody stems, branching like veins.  I look right to the roots, open to the elements but clinging to their last earthy contact.  Standing close to this magnificent sylvan creature, I sense the violence of its end.  I touch its body and we share a silent prayer for all trees that find themselves horizontal at the hands of humans.

With trial and error and loads of good advice (thanks @corvidresearch) I’ve learned to stay warm this winter. Layering mittens over gloves, hoods over hats, and bibs over leggings over long johns. I’m to the point where I can be out in feels like -5 F for half a day and only worry about not seeing enough birds.
.
But it takes me FIFTEEN distinct items to get to that point. That’s fifteen items more than this fluff of a squirrel needs for an entire winter of cold. And that’s damn impressive. And mind boggling. Especially when you remember that tiny little chickadees, mice, and kinglets do this too.
.
So in an effort to learn more about the inhabitants of my new favorite season, I’ve started reading Winter World by Bernd Heinrich (scroll left to see Eo perfectly channeling the front cover). I’m only a few pages in, but I took a peek at the table of contents and not only will it answer all my questions about chickadees, mice and kinglets, there’s a whole chapter on my favorite mammal (hint  they’re very busy). Anyone interested in a book club?

Father of the Forest. This is actually a fallen tree, but here he is represented in all his glory, harnessing the power of the sun. His hollowed trunk slowly releases nutrients to the soil below, providing nourishment for mosses, shrubs, and dogwoods. The Father is a symbol of strength, vitality, and endurance.

Big Trees collection coming to the shop this Saturday 2/23.

Shoutout to one of my favourite mythological creatures, directly from Scandinavian folklore: the Fossegrim!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He's a fiddle-playing water spirit, usually found around mills, rivers or...well, waterfalls!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Their music is so magical that everyone and everything starts to dance when they play, including nature.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And, with secret food offerings, they can be bribed into teaching you how to play the fiddle.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That would be me on my good days (if only I could play the fiddle 😅).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As for my bad days... have you heard of his relative, the nøkk, who plays his violin to lure travellers to death by drowning? 😇
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just kidding!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(Or... am I? 🤭)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Psst: if you enjoy these wild landscapes, I have a brand new blog post packed with pictures from my latest Welsh adventure!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Waterfalls, choppy sea and a magical mountain lake!

We’ve officially run out of clean baby grows, bedding and trousers (mine). Yet look how much he’s smiling. This week has been horrific, he’s projectile vomited to the point of not being able to breathe and choking, he was in A&E over the weekend being poked and prodded by doctors and nurses way past his bed time and found it nothing but funny. He’s desperately begged me to share my food and water with him (I didn’t) even though he’s poorly and he took 24 hours of just having medicine and no milk like a champ. I swear if he wasn’t vomiting you’d have no idea he was poorly. I can’t get over how amazing the doctors and nurses at King’s were they spent over an hour assessing him while making him giggle and they also listened and checked him for all of my worries and concerns even  some were a little ridiculous.... “I don’t know if he bumped his head but there was a red mark on his head.”, “he licked his play pen.”, “what if he’s swallowed something. I mean, I know he hasn’t but what if he has.”, “we’ve got a dog.”. I love that hospital, I was born there and Vegas was born there and I’ve been multiple times in between for myself (🙄) but this is the first time for Vegas and they’ve never been anything less than amazing. As for Vegas, I don’t know where he gets his endless happiness and putting up with everything from because it’s definitely not me or @niull . We’re not in the clear yet but there’s been significantly less vomiting and I’ve just managed to get my first solid 3 hours of sleep since Friday so hopefully this is the end of it...

I have always dreamt of living by the sea. The magic of wondering along the beach everyday. Listening to the sound of the waves lapping. Capturing moments like this! .

Not long after this photo was taken, this little guy made his way back into the sea. Maybe one day I will make the move to the coast, for now I’ll enjoy moments like this.

In all the excitement of the new website I haven't gone much beyond a brief mention of the free download I've created for you. Seasonal Shift: Early Spring is available to everyone who signs up to my weekly emails and is a slow living inspired celebration of the early part of this new season - I intend to create an edition of Seasonal Shift for each new season this year.⠀
🌱⠀
The download is 10 pages long and is stuffed full of ideas of things you can experience, create, bake and do in these first weeks of spring. I hope you'll find it a gentle inspiration to take a moment of slow (with tea. Always with tea. Coffee is just about acceptable too 🙈) while you read it, and then use it to help you find even more connection and joy in the season around you.⠀
🌱⠀
You can get the download by signing up to my weekly emails at the bottom of the homepage on my website (link in my profile). And if you have any feedback on the download, or the website itself, I'd love to hear it! ⠀

The boys looking out to sea... 🌊🌿
.
Can you tell I haven’t left the house much so far this winter?! Apart from taking Ted on his walks around the park and along the canal, I’ve been hunkered down inside - decluttering, (pre)spring cleaning, and working on all the exciting plans I want to bring to life this year.
.
It’s been wonderful, and exactly what’s needed during these cold and darker months, but it does mean I’m spending a lot of time re-living our January Cornish adventure both in my head and here on the grid! I suppose we all need a little escapism from time to time ✨
.
I can feel the warmth and light slowly returning, though, bringing renewed life and energy and a desire to get out and explore once again. There’s another month until spring arrives, but she’s definitely on her way! 🌱

Memories from a shooting where I remembered have very cold feet, but it was worth it!  Those outdoor sceneries are my favorites things to shoot (with chiaroscuro still life), I love that unexpected beauty that pops into the wild. 
I styled and shoot that scene with the talented Antje @antje_ohlabellevie and Alice @je_prefere_la_brume who is a gifted photographer, talented book author and also the kind soul who taught me my first photography basics when I was a nineteen years old lost girl with an analogue camera and absolutely no idea how to use it. Check their work if you have time, it’s amazing! //////////////////////////////////// Souvenir d’un de mes shootings préférés, ou je me souviens avoir eu très très froid aux pieds, mais ça en valait la peine je crois… 
Ce genre de scène sauvages sont vraiment mes préférés à photographier (avec les natures mortes), j’aime beaucoup cette beauté un peu inattendue qui jaillit dans des endroits incongrus et surprenants. 
J’ai stylisé et photographié cette scène en compagnie de la talentueuse  Antje ( @antje_ohlabellevie ) et d’Alice ( @je_prefere_la_brume ) qui en plus d’être une merveilleuse photographe et une auteure à succès est également la bonne âme qui m’a enseigné mes premières bases de photographie à une époque ou j’étais une fille perdue de 19 ans avec un vieux appareil argentique et aucune idée de comment m’en servir, si vous aimez les belles images, allez faire un tour sur leurs comptes. .

Yes!! Have managed to survive the first day of half term relatively unscathed. It was miserable, misty and grey all morning and then to top it off it started chucking it down in the afternoon.  We (I) decided to stay cosy indoors, which it turned out wasn't really the best idea. I’m not sure who has been more bored and moody, me or the kids. In an effort prise them away from screens I suggested we play games (Connect 4 and Guess Who? favs from when I was a kid) and do some drawing together.  It was lovely and peaceful for about fifteen minutes before they started fighting over felt tips and who had the biggest piece of paper. In the end I had to bribe them with the promise of magazines and rainbow cake - so much for saving money by not going anywhere, children’s mags cost as much as Vogue!  Bloomin’ daylight robbery if you ask me.  My kids only want the plastic tat stuck on the front.  On the rare occasion I buy them one, I tell them they’ve got to read it cover to cover so we get our money’s worth. There were tears and tantrums before bedtime too - theirs and mine.  Wine o’clock came early, let’s put it that way. The tiddlers take centre stage in the the photos for my latest blog post (link in the usual place). It’s a guide to creating a sustainable wardrobe for your kid(s). It’s a bit of a long read this one... At the bottom (if you get that far) is a shopping guide to some lovely bargains you can still pick up in the sales for your little ones, so there’s some inspo for some online window shopping as well. Check it out if it sounds like your cup of chai latte. Happy hump day everyone! .

These will be available tonight { Wednesday} at 8pm EST. Now off to bed, I stayed up way too late but #themoonmademedoit 🌕 Nighty night everyone! .

Lately, inspiration has been leaping out at me at the most unexpected times. I had to put down two bags of groceries and untangle myself from my earbuds to snap this picture of a lonely bench surrounded by snow near my house on Sunday morning. It gave me a feeling of nostalgia that I hope to develop into an idea for a piece of writing in the near future.
.
It occurred to me how much I love having this space to share these little sparks of creativity. I would love to see what inspires you in your day to day life as well, so I’m planning to use the tag #ofinspiredmoments .

Please, spread the word, and use this hashtag to share the photos that inspire you, make you think, or simply bring those creative instincts bubbling to the surface.

We leave for Amsterdam tomorrow! Currently trying to fit everything into a small carry on bag. I’m waiting for Kevin to get back home from being away for a couple days so I can take a deep sigh of relief. I always feel better when he’s close by. The weather is calling for another 6-8 inches of snow overnight. Our flight leaves in the afternoon so fingers and toes crossed that everything is on time. 🤞🏻

Looking back on a beautiful weekend ☀️ P.S this is Polly being a little weirdo. When she spots people in the distance, she refuses to move until she meets them; the exact opposite of me 🤣

BIRDS OF A FEATHER 🦢 @wwtwelney is a wildlife centre near @woodlakes_park_ in Norfolk, famous for the incredible numbers of swans that you can watch feeding in winter. We were expecting to only see a handful of birds but we saw hundreds across the wetlands - I'm now lusting after a proper wildlife photography lens for close up snaps! 🦆🦢🦅⠀

When you start to feel like things should have been better this year, remember the mountains and valleys that got you here. They are not accidents, and those moments weren't in vain . 
You are not the same. You have grown and you are growing. You are breathing, you are living, you are wrapped in endless, boundless grace. And things will get better . 
There is more to you than yesterday .

reminder:
the proper balance between 
patience and determination 
can accomplish great things - yung pueblo
—
You have the potential to achieve anything you set your mind to, the possibility are endless....
-
and this is also a reminder to myself to stop playing the comparison game and focus on my own path, no matter how slow the steps forward may sometimes be (or feel!). It’s been a season of lots of new things. While change is always good, it takes my body a little while longer to adjust than most, and I have been struggling to find my balance.
-
Needless to say my trip down comparison highway has left me feeling uninspired and stopped my words. Making it difficult to think of things I want to say. Catch 22 right?!
