The face you pull when your naturally 'straight', flat, lifeless hair decides to change itself... Maybe it's because I rarely wash it, maybe it's something to do with my plant based diet, maybe it's just the rainy season humidity (didn't do it last year tho). If anyone has any idea why my hair has decided to channel its inner Bon Jovi... please let me know. #whytho #septumpiercing #hair #bonjovi #innerbonjovi #confused #curly #girlswithpiercings #whendidthishappen #vegan #nomad #vegannomad #nomadlife #backpacker #backpackerlife #travelling #indonesia #humidity #rainyseason #WTF #answersonapostcard #veganlife #veganlifestyle
Ok, so yesterday's post got a lot of attention... so I feel the need to give a bit of an explanation. Picture 1, Sept 2015, fat, unhappy and unhealthy. I was still training... sporadically, but being unhappy with myself meant I had no real motivation. Picture 2, Jan 2018, happy and healthy in mind, body and spirit. All my life, I have struggled with being 'the fat one', and in 2013, I met an amazing person @ma.tara.hari who started helping me turn my life around, training me, giving me nutrition advice, and being a darn great friend. She left for Indonesia in 2015... cue a huge weight gain again. I came to Indonesia 13th July 2016, ready to change my life. Which, I did. I want you all to know, my water fast was not a quick fix weight loss thing, and neither will it be for you. I have trained hard, fucking hard, and taken care of my mind, my body, and my soul, solidly for the past 18 months, and sporadically my body for the past 4 years. I fasted to cleanse, to rejuvinate, to reset... not just my body. Yeah, the appearance of abs is a bonus... but was never my intention. If you want to fast, your intentions should be set. Fasting for weight loss will NOT work. Period. A wise soul told me yesterday 'Starving yourself for weight loss is effectively anorexia', which is so god damn true. Love you for you, take care of everything, not just your body. Awaken your soul. #transfortion #hardwork #trainhard #soulwork #mind #body #soul #fast #fasting #waterfast #noquickfix #loveyou #beyou #loveyourself #weightloss #awakening #soulwork #rejuvinate #refresh #mentalhealth #newlife #abs #girlswholift #vegan #veganlife
Today is my final day of water fasting... The leanest I have ever been in my life... or maybe it's just good lighting... Anyway, I can't wait to eat... but, I will still be intermittently fasting throughout the rest of January... a promise is a promise. And you never know... maybe another water fast is on the cards... every other weekend maybe? #fasting #water #waterfast #lean #cleanse #cleansing #gettingabs #intermittentfasting #goals #goodlighting #hungry #nothangry #shredding #girlswholift #absinprogress #pastfatty #traveller #vegan #backpacker #backpackerlife #promise #needcoffee #nomad #nomadlife #plantbased #veganlife #fastingmonth
I've been intermittent fasting through January so far, as a promise to someone who went vegan. Now, it is official. Tomorrow I will start a water fast, for a minimum of 5 days with this one. The one and only beautiful @ma.tara.hari We will support each other, and feel azing afterwards. We got this. #fast #waterfast #fasting #vegan #bestie #bestbuddies #plantpower #cleansing #veganforlife #growth #plantbased #water #waterislife #cleanse #nofood #dontgethangry #fuckanilcruelty #veganlife #bestfriends #friendsforlife
Semeru. You taught me some invaluable lessons, a very important one being that it's ok not to make the summit. Sadly, the slip on day one (and thinking I had broken my wrist) meant I had to make the difficult decision not to make a summit attack on day two. The summit was the only part I did not reach, even with the pain. BUT, the hike was glorious. Thank you @mr.happy.guy for cooking, sharing the load, driving and being an all round great hiking buddy. Sorry for scaring you when I fell... Semeru, I will make it to your peak, I will be back. That is a promise. #semeru #gunungsemeru #hike #hiking #volcano #mountain #trekking #camping #lake #eastjava #indonesia #exploreindonesia #wonderfulindonesia #wanderlust #travelgram #instatravel #traveller #backpacker #backpackerlife #volcanohunter #nomad #nomadlife #volcanosquad #camplife
This is me. Version 3.0. 30. Some are scared of that number. But does it even matter? My soul is most likely 20 times that age, probably more, I just haven't figured that out yet, but I know I've been here before. This new decade is going to be incredible, I can feel it in my bones. Posing like a twit... but, who gives a shit. I am me. Unapologetically me, and I'm gonna keep doing me. 30. Let's do this. πŸ––βœŒ #30 #oldsoul #twit #30th #aged #ageisjustanumber #newdecade #septumpiercing #girlswithpiercings #girlswithink #girlswithtattoos #birthday #numpty #beyou #iloveme #loveyou #loveyourself #growth #letsdothis #itsme #fuckit #peace #livelife #lovelife

There would be no rainbows without sunshine and rain. Like everything, there is beauty in the darkness. I could sadly only capture a small portion of this rainbow on my phone. No joke, it was about 3/4 of a circle. Circa 3000m above sea level. Blessed. #rainbow #lightanddark #colours #colourful #rainbows #rain #sun #hiking #gununglawu #lawu #solo #travelgram #instatravel #hiker #traveller #peace #tranquil #mothernature #naturalbeauty #naturalphenomenon #amazing #views #sky #clouds #wonderfuladventure #wonderfulindonesia #exploreindonesia
What an incredible hike. 3265m above sea level. Sleeping volcano, done. Gunung Lawu, you were immense. Thank you @halleemshake for accompanying me, feeding me, motivating me and carrying the tent/food/cooking equipment.
