I was challenged by @kokitjapotit to share 5 facts about myself. I usually don’t share much about my private life, but I thought that with the rebranding and all it would be nice to tell you guys a little about myself. So here it goes. ➵ When I say I am half Italian half Brazilian, usually people start to assume I am extrovert and social. The reality is that I’m an introvert soul, who loves to spend time with friends, but needs lots of alone time to recharge. ➵ I studied film photography many years ago in a course organized by my school. This actually still affects my professional life in two ways 1. I still shoot film 2. Even when I shoot digital, I carefully weigh beforehand all the different aspects involved in the shooting and then take just a few, good exposures. ➵ When I moved to Finland five years and a half ago I didn’t plan on staying forever. I thought I would stay up to a year and then either move somewhere else or back to Italy. Then love found me and I am still here. ➵ I am a nerd 🤓 I studied science and technology, know how to code and love everything sci-fi. Trekkie forever 🖖🏼 ➵ Lastly, my favorite material is linen. In the picture I wear @quintessence_marine and I am seriously considering getting rid of 90% of my clothes to have a very minimalistic and natural closet. Would love to hear from @claudiagoedke@_goodoldfashioned and @frollemente@evakosmasflores & @linda_lomelino their 5 facts! 🖤 Have a happy weekend! #adagioblog

This will come a lot easier to you then wasting energy on trying to improve what you’re not good at. Leave that to somebody who is good at it naturally! ⠀ ⠀ Take the path of least resistance.

So far Amsterdam does not disappoint. It’s wonky canal houses, bikes whipping by everywhere you turn, quaint shops and cafes around every corner, the faint scent of cigarette smoke and weed wafting through the air. Its everything we could have imagined and more. We visited the Van Gogh Museum yesterday which was fascinating and sad. Today we’re headed to a chocolate festival in the city center and maybe hop on a train out of town to visit a castle!

I try to be the kind of person who enjoys each of the seasons & embraces their differences no matter how cold or how hot. But one (myself) can only handle so many days of rain in a row, & schlepp through so many mud puddles, & wear so many coats, & be sick for so long before it starts to wear one (again, myself) down. Until there's snow. Turns out a bit of freshly fallen snow was exactly what I needed to cure those winter blues. There isn't much that is more magical than waking up to a world covered in a blanket of sparkling white. * #jessnaturecollection#angelesnationalforest

There is an amazing old English word I discovered today. Dustsceawung, literally reflecting on upon the fact we'll all one day be dust. Working as I do to a seasonal calendar I'm often stuck with the thought that one day will be my last spring, my last seeing crocus or the last time I'll get to admire the way sunlight sinks low and catches the wool of a grazing sheep.

Everyday this week has felt like Saturday. No rushing, simply slowly exploring and getting things done with just a little less pressure than I usually find writhing in my mind. I’ve realised - or possibly rediscovered - that calmness motivates me, gives me room to stretch out and feel my way through in a way that feels safe and strong. What surprising things motivate you? —— Also, I had a perm two weeks ago to help me feel human in the face of arthritis hindering even being able to brush my hair. This one small thing has made a massive difference to my state of mind. Don’t forget, you will find a solution, even when you’ve spent years feeling that there isn’t.

You would never catch me this far from the coast in summer back home. Because I am a beach person: or so I thought. But I have been bewitched by the mountains and alpine swimming and the incredible beauty of the Australian Alps. So perhaps I am a mountain person after all. Or a happy mix of both. 📷 by @grantmtaylor - my fellow adventurer through life and all its beautiful wild places - who took the camera from my hands on top of Mount Buffalo. 🗻

What a week. We have all felt a little depleted this week. The children have been temperamental in their moods and fussy with their eating and generally very tired and not themselves. I have felt deeply tired, and have had an anxious energy that has clung to me all week. As well as lots of snuggles and stories and indoor games and trying our best to be patient with each other, we still always make it outdoors to play in the garden and to visit our favourite friends 👆🏽🐴 A good breath of fresh air always helps. We also went to visit the animals at the farm down the lane and to the library to get new books, and to play on the village park which to be honest I’m pretty proud of because honestly, all I’ve wanted to do all week is crawl back in to my bed and hide there all day and all night!! We rounded off the week with a bus ride today for the children to pick a bath bomb each from Lush, and I am sat here now listening to the happy splashing from upstairs and breathing a sigh of relief that we made it through! Pheeeew . . . Happy Friday all, Wishing everyone a lovely weekend.

My mental health hasn’t been the greatest this week, to be honest, and saying that makes me feel like rubbish, because I don’t really have a good reason for feeling a bit rough at the moment. But that’s exactly what makes dealing with depression so difficult: The feelings of guilt. The feelings of inadequacy. The feelings of shame. Depression is isolating because it changes your perception of yourself and vicious because it makes you doubt your worth as a human being. And that’s why it’s so important that we learn to speak openly about these issues - to fight the stigma, to raise awareness and to find community with each other amidst our struggle. ⁣ 🌱⁣ I did a few of the little self-care rituals today that tend to bring me back to myself again and I am feeling much centered because of it right now. For me personally, just doing trivial things like organizing my apartment, reading a novel and going to the nicest supermarket in my neighbourhood can make a difference. But it’s easy for me to forget to incorporate them into my daily routine and I think that’s exactly what got me this time. ⁣ ✨⁣ If you feel comfortable doing so, I would love to know if you have any routines in place for when you find your mental health suffering. Do you find that just concentrating on the small things helps you see the bigger picture again? ⁣ +⁣ +⁣ #quietinthewild#gowildlyandslow#thewildnesstonic#natureonthepage#natureforsoul#whimsicalwonderfulwild#folkscenery#natureandnourish#embracingtheseasons#aseasonalyear#aseasonalshift#myseasonalstory#thatwinterspringthing#gloomandglow#myeverydaymagic#slowandsimpledays#thequietwinter#signsofspring#thebeautyinwinter#slowsimpleseasonal#inspiredbynature_#seasonspoetry#moodmagic#ofwhimsicalmoments#soulful_moments#thedreaminglens

Good god of white, frosty mornings I’m going to miss this season. . I remember the day, during my first winter here in Nebraska, when I learned that winter did not end in the early February like my childhood in Florida had led me to believe. That just because the sole time I saw frost in my backyard was that one January in middle school, didn’t mean that up North winter was similarly contained to that one month. . But that was then. And now? Now I’ve learned to love this gusty, blustery, leviathan of a season. Just as long as there’s a couple inches of snow sprinkled on top.

It doesn’t take long for my sense of being connected with the world to fade. It’s been just three short days since I’ve been out for a walk (we’ve had visitors and I’ve not been feeling brilliant) and I sense the world out there is changing fast. Where are the celandines, the snowdrops, the first wild daffodils, the swelling buds, warming in the late winter sunshine? In my mind’s eye, for now. Today, I listen to the birds though my window and watch the sunlight glow on the white wall. Tomorrow, I plan to spend a full day out in the garden, clearing the last of winter, and creating space for what’s coming next. There’s really no substitute for being out there. . . #walkinguk#devonheaven#thatwinterspringthing#aseasonalyear#seasonspoetry#aseasonalshift#mymindfulyear#ournature#mynaturestory#connectwithnature#outinnature#natureismytherapy#natureforsoul#simplenaturefinds#slownaturemoments#natureconnection#themagicinnature#beoutside#naturedetails#inspiredbynature#ofquietmoments#gowildlyandslow#quietinthewild#thewildnesstonic#rewildyourlife#wearewildness#gloomandglow#slowandglow#estuary#estuarylife

This week has included a number of long country walks and spotting the signs of spring. I’ve had my mum and stepdad visiting and it’s been just what my heart needed. I inherited the deep love for the natural world from my mother. So many of my fondest childhood memories are of us taking long walks in forests, fields and riversides of Lithuania. It’s been such a pleasure to show her the beautiful English countryside this week. And it’s given me an opportunity to be reminded of how blessed I am to be able to access such beautiful landscapes so close from my front door. Moving away from London was a decition I have not once regretted, my happiness and quality of life are immensly improved by the landscapes, starry night skies and fresh air that surrounds me here. I miss Lithuania and I miss my friends and family in London, too. But I count my blessings over my losses every day.

The kids are doing a challenge at school just now to get pictures of themselves reading in unusual locations in the run up to #worldbookday. Last weekend we took them to Dunnet Head - the most northerly point in mainland Britain - to get some pictures (and generally enjoy a family afternoon out). I have to admit it was pretty blustery up there, so we let them do the rest of their reading at @stacksbistro in John O’ Groats over yummy cakes and coffees 😋. As far as I’m concerned anywhere is a good place to enjoy your favourite book! #booklover#readinginthewild

I’d quite like to be here this morning, going for a long walk around our favourite local spot, but instead it’s time to make a start on my final coaching assignment 🤓 Next month I’ll have my last in-person study weekend and a practical assessment, and then it will be onto the next chapter of this hugely exciting journey: working with you! 🎉 . I have so many ideas for potential workshops and one-to-one offerings, all based around supporting wildhearted creative women in their own slow adventures. Through re-writing our definitions of success, honouring our values, listening to our intuition and learning from nature and the seasons, I truly believe it’s possible for all of us to find purpose and contentment in our work and lives. . I have a lot of thoughts to sort through before I can say more, but for now I have two questions for you. Firstly, what does a meaningful life look like to you? And secondly, what do you find hard about living - or working towards - that life?

After a brief interlude of sun, Im back to my moody shots! I had a super misty run this morning accompanied by @esmee_ldn in my ear on the fabulous Well Far podcast with @wellness_ed Amy. This podcast was just what I needed to hear this morning as Esmee talked about ‘getting your head down and doing the work’ and this resonates with me. Her story from wheelchair bound to running @londonmarathon holds special meaning to me as someone who has had a similar journey back to fitness. She also reiterated that time isn’t everything! I LOVE that message Esmee and it was just what I needed to hear. The misty image depicts the grey atmosphere, slightly murky and unknown before the sun comes out later and you get that amazing sense of achievement overcoming adversity. I thought it was rather fitting! Have a good one and check out the podcast. . . . . #lightinspired#mystoryoflight#gloomandglow#inspiredbylight#winterstories#wintermood#anaturalmidwinter#themidwintermovement#thequietwinter#seasonalshift#mistyfoggymilkymoody#simplepleasures#capturethemoment#littlestoriesofmylife#everydayadventures#thewildnesstonic#goexplore#thegreatoutdoors#optoutside#letsgosomewhere#themagicinnature#liveauthentic#simplepleasures#makemoments#londonmarathontraining#runningpodcast#womenshealthmag#thisprettyengland

Happy Friday friends. Platform 9 3/4 vibes, anyone? Spring seems to have arrived almost instantaneously. Yesterday was cloaked in beautiful gilded warmth and this morning I opened the door to a pink, misty (but illuminated!) sky. This weekend will be spent soaking up the daylight and maybe, finally, I'll get some shots of the beautiful little spring flowers that are already in abundance. What are your plans? I'm looking forward to a visit to @kewgardens which is right around the corner. Is anyone else going to the orchid festival this year? #gowildlyandslow#thewildnesstonic#quietinthewild#exploremore#aseasonalyear#embracingtheseasons#slowliving#seasonalliving#seekinspirecreate#instaplants#woods#lansdcapephotography#aseasonalshift#seasonspoetry#trees#forest#woodland#earthpix#sunlight#seasonaltales#bitsofbuildings#gloomandglow#thequietwinter#chasing_fascades#ofquietmoments#severnvalley#severnvalleyrailway#heritagerailway#platformnineandthreequarters#spring

AD • Hi, I’m Alex - a photographer, a writer, a journalist once upon a time, an artist and a maker. An Explorer. A born adventurer. An ambassador for Boden. I mostly live between the pages of a book but both Bulgaria and America have been my homes. These days you’ll find me day tripping the little villages in Yorkshire, England. My favourite book is The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and I sent it once to a boy called William. Do you read the stars? I’m a triple Scorpio. I know, intense. My favourite mode of transportation is sailing but despite living on a big island I mainly drive. I grew up on the road and that made me restless. My favourite country is Iceland. My favourite place is Newport, RI - that is where I learnt to sail. While I lived there I had a tradition involving another Alex and a big order of pancakes every Monday morning. The best job I’ve ever had was an art volunteer at a nursing home for patients with dementia. My favourite patient was a mischievous black woman who used to tell me the story of how she once crossed the States on a Greyhound bus with only the clothes on her back and a one-way ticket to California. My most trusted companion is Grumm (Bulgarian for thunder). His best friend is Cinnamon, our guinea pig, who lives with Leonard Sampson. We also have two pocket gerbils - Huckleberry and Finn. I dream of having chickens and a brown goat. I want to be a superhero who fights Trump. My husband reads comics and plays dungeons & dragons. He works in information security. My favourite season is autumn. The things I hate the most about England are the lack of snow and their carpets. I used to be a ballerina. I climbed my first mountain (7513 ft) when I was 4. That is also the number of languages I speak. I’ve lost 7 teeth, have 5 serious chronic illnesses and 2 conditions and have broken numerous bones. ⁣ ⁣ Hello to my new followers, welcome to my family! I’m so happy to have every one of you and I thought I should introduce myself - I’m not even sure I’ve ever done that before. So who are you? ⁣ ⁣ This beautiful jumper was kindly gifted by @boden_clothing. Follow the link in my bio for 20% off. #bodenbyme#bodenpartner⁣

For the first time in my life I’m blaming my funny up/down mood on the moon this week (Instagram told me I could!)⁣ ⁣ I was properly grown up though and took myself off for a good stiff walk which always perks me up. I was justly rewarded by bumping into my favourite Mendip dwellers. Much like my chickens’ antics, seeing this herd unfailingly makes me smile. ⁣ ⁣ Hope you have a smiley Friday 😁

Mapping out the road ahead, across the mountains. We can't go over them, we can't go under them - we'd better go around them.

Some things are best enjoyed slowly. Wine, cups of tea, good books and bubble baths to name a few. . Still dreaming of our slow, quiet weekend away, and planning our next #pnw road trip. . Where will your next adventure take you?

My permanent ray of sunshine 💖 I've finished a blog post all about my children's photography workshop next month - the link will be up soon when my clunky country broadband connection finally catches up! Do you have any questions about photographing children? Posing, capturing natural expressions, editing? Let me know! 🌿

Our laundry line sits on top of the hill behind one of the barns. It's one of my favourite things about our house. Not only does laundry dry in an instant with the wind, but I get to chat to the neighbouring sheep and cows (and my kids can never find me). I was gutted two summers ago when the last poll finally rotted through and I had to move the line to another part of the yard. However, this week with the help of our neighbour and our @wwoof ers, I can now hang laundry again (to take pictures of-- not really all that fussed about clean clothes). . . . . . #aseasonalway#littlestoriesofmylife#thewayweliveinthecountry#abirdinthehand#thewildnesstonic#tfispring#whimsicalwonderfulwild#embracingtheseasons#smallmomentsofcalm#folkandstory#shepherdess#farmher#farmlifebestlife#iamamodernfarmer

... It's about personal development . It's about creating your own character and pushing it to the limit. It's about pushing yourself so far out of your own and everybody else's idea of who you are and what you're capable of, that you no longer believe in limits . It's about reaching beyond your so-called potential, because your potential is never where you or anyone else expects it to be, not even close . It's about being able to say with the last breath of your life “I used all my potential and all my talents and pushed myself to the limit.

19.02.19 Blue skies and catkins everywhere! I had a long ol' day today - a late shift followed by a dash to my Grandparents' house for dinner to celebrate my Grandad coming home from the hospital (yay!). Saw my brothers for the first time since the wedding, and they're still adorable. And we got to listen to two hours of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in the car, so no real complaints here!

This is his grove of trees. When we first moved here we let all the kids pick a spot on the property that would be “theirs” to nurture and cultivate. In the summer when it was too dry he often asked to water them in the evenings. When we go out to play, he asks me to walk here with him. When the snow came, these were the first he wanted to show me were bent down beneath the weight.

Hello folks! A little bit of calm for your Thursday - from an early morning walk on Porth Kidney Sands in Cornwall last April ♡ Such a lovely beach with so much space - and it’s dog friendly year round :) I meant to pop in sooner but I’ve been immersed in @c_colli ‘s flatlay course and thoroughly enjoying myself. I’ve been having a shift around in my room so I now have an entire desk/table that is clear and near the window, just for photography- hurrah! So my big camera is coming out tomorrow- there I’ve said it, so now I have to do it ;) Hopefully I’ll soon have some new images to share :) Right I’m off to cook dinner - looking forward to a lovely catch-up with you all later ♡ . . . #porthkidneysands#cornwall#kernow#thewildnesstonic#happyadventuring#lovelywanderings#optoutside#mytinyatlas#stayandwander#capturingbritain_coast#visitengland#lovelifeoutside#lovegreatbritain#thisismykingdom#in2nature#gowildlyandslow#thisprettyengland#quietinthewild#myhappyviews#memoiresofasummer

I've been quiet on here again because adjustment and sorting things needs my focus. Sharing doesn't come naturally to me at those moments. 🍂 What does come naturally, or rather what I crave, is nature. Luckily there's plenty of that here! Last Saturday I went to Glendalough with friends and had a great time. We didn't do all we wanted, but we enjoyed what we did do and each others company 🍂 Tonight is a night in next to the fire and a long shower: rest 2.0.

'Snow drifted up to her elbow. Whispers, voices, eddied in the wind. Did she even belong to these places anymore? The daughter batted ice crystals from her brows with a frozen hand. Nothing bellowed in the bone-wood. Great branches came down in the storm, twisted with ice. Stark trunks, crystallized totems.' Sharing some words from my novelette in place of a caption because my mind is blank as the page I've been staring at all day 🤤 At least this amber star I found on my walk today cheered me up🍂 How do you turnaround uninspired days? . . . . . . . #distractionsandinspirations#daysofsmallthings#heitermoments#tinytinymoments#folkandstory#livefolk#wearewoodlandfolk#faeriefolk#selfiesforintroverts#tobravelyshare#simplethingsmadebeautiful#creativehappylife#quietinthewild#thewildnesstonic#slowlived#splendid_woodlands#whimsicalwonderfulwild#pursuepretty#alliseeispretty#exploretocreate#natureandnourish

From our lofty position on the old viaduct, the vertiginous space below is specked with soft-edged trees. Set against the dark green pines and spruce, interspersed with beeches, they shimmer with an almost pink trace. I think they are birch trees, though its hard to tell here. They are standing by for the collective signal to unfurl their leaves in such a wonderfully delicate and gentle manner. Do you recognise any other trees here? . . . . #walkinguk#devonheaven#thatwinterspringthing#aseasonalyear#seasonspoetry#aseasonalshift#mymindfulyear#ournature#mynaturestory#connectwithnature#outinnature#natureismytherapy#natureforsoul#simplenaturefinds#slownaturemoments#natureconnection#themagicinnature#beoutside#naturedetails#inspiredbynature#ofquietmoments#gowildlyandslow#quietinthewild#thewildnesstonic#rewildyourlife#wearewildness#gloomandglow#slowandglow#dartmoorcollective#viaduct

What a lovely springy day it is out there today. Have you all had a nice half term? I have been working and the kids have been going to a new to us holiday club. They've been nestled amongst civil servants along Whitehall, I wonder how they'll look back at that when they're older? Is certainly an unusual place for childcare, but I hope they had fun, their outdoor space was St James' Park😍
