September is National Sickle Cell Awareness Month. First officially recognized by the federal government in 1983, National Sickle Cell Awareness Month calls attention to sickle cell disease (SCD).
Sickle cell anemia is an inherited form of anemia — a condition in which there aren’t enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen throughout your body.
Normally, your red blood cells are flexible and round, moving easily through your blood vessels. In sickle cell anemia, the red blood cells become rigid and sticky and are shaped like sickles or crescent moons. These irregularly shaped cells can get stuck in small blood vessels, which can slow or block blood flow and oxygen to parts of the body.

Wearing an ‘OM’ charm is said to bring harmony, peace and eternal bliss to the ones who wear them. These charms are said to work well in bringing fortune and good luck if it is accompanied by chanting of the Om mantra on daily basis.
To wear a good luck charm while meditating, a level of spiritual vibration can be reached and a state of universalism can be attained in a matter of time. OM charms are available in shops and gift websites too in various forms. The most popular ones are OM pendants. The Om sign helps to enhance the very essence of one’s life towards good health and living.

I am LOVING my new mala beads!!! Simply stated, mala beads are a set of beads that have traditionally been used in prayer and meditation. Often called prayer or blessing beads, anyone can wear these beautiful pieces.
You don’t have to be religious or have any spiritual practice. We believe you can simply wear them as a reminder of an intention you’ve set. And if you are seeking a calmer mind, body and spirit.
The elephant also is generally considered a symbol of good luck and the animal is a symbol of good fortune!
1. DO: Play with colors if you’re a total beginner
Before delving into shades of double blue, start out by pairing different shades of denim together, like white jeans and a blue denim jacket, or black jeans and a chambray shirt. It’s almost impossible to go wrong this way.
2. DON’T: Wear denim accessories.
Keep the jeans confined to your clothing and just say no to denim shoes, a denim hat, a denim, handbag, or any other accessory.
Each human being is a gift, and we each have our own unique dream and purpose for living. We each must mine our imaginations, creativity and souls to uncover our true purposes and passions.
Our dreams are magic, and if respected, nurtured and honored, they ultimately bring an abundance of meaning and purpose to our lives. Dreams guide us as we reach for the stars, follow our heart’s desire and do the things we are passionate about. Dreams help weave the fabric of who we are, and they reveal what matters most to us. They allow our spirits to shine, and they reflect our uniqueness and authenticity.
Although we sometimes hear the call to put our dreams aside, louder, clearer and more powerful voices remind and connect us to the truth, beauty and wealth of our dreams.
Throughout history, poets, songwriters, novelists, politicians, social activists, countries, companies, presidents, moms, dads and people just like you have expressed the importance of the act of dreaming and of reaching toward those dreams. These voices also inspire and remind us that there is a common thread that connects one heart to another. That thread is the belief and optimism in a brighter future when we embrace and pursue our dreams.
When we look around, we see others who have embraced their dreams, and we admire them. We see the great changes that can come from one person’s commitment, perseverance and belief in her dream. We see the power of dreams manifested around us in our neighborhoods, churches, communities, states, the country and the world.
We, too, want to make our own dreams come true. We all want to connect, to speak from our hearts. We yearn to create dreams as well as things and moments that make our lives worthwhile. We want to convey what words alone cannot as we accomplish our dreams.
Yet, not enough of us even acknowledge the desire to create the lives we imagine or try to make our dreams come true. Too often we diminish the importance of our dreams by saying, “I’ll get to it later” or “It can wait.” Our inner critic can be heard saying, “I’ll never get it accomplished,” “My dream doesn’t really matter” or “I probably can’t do it any way, and people will think it’s silly.”
The truth is, we all need more opportunities to dream, to imagine and to play. We long to feel the sensation of being lost in a moment of joy. To laugh, discover, experiment, invent, feel accomplished and live in the moment.
Dreaming is the way we define what matters to us and what we wish to accomplish and do in the world with this one life.
Start each day with a positive thought and a grateful heart! Xx
The Secret is a simple but profound lesson that you can replace despair with a gift – through a change in thinking. “The secret” is the law of attraction. This law is affecting all people in all areas of life, all the time.
Just as we are bound by precise physical laws, the law of attraction is equally constant. It acts on big things and small – healing, finance, relationships and more. Quantum science says we can’t have universe without mind. Mind is shaping what’s perceived.
Medical science likewise suggests that thought and emotion determine our body’s structure and function. Our bodies follow a self-healing program when unimpeded. Disease cannot live in a healthy emotional state. Amazing!

The modern day boho girl has everything that she needs – love and peace! She wears lightweight, loose-fitted garments, lots of crochet and lace staples, sexy cotton cuts and even transparent (mesh) fabrics. She wears the look with ease and confidence Xx
There are lots of adorable street and beach looks to follow and be inspired by these days. If you want to be more soft, then I recommend to try a caftan like this one made of lightweight cotton. This look is ideal for beautiful tropical climates like ours, no matter if you are on your way to grab some drinks and a bite or just hanging out with friends. Go for slouchy styles with crochet or lace inserts. My personal advice: use lots of accessories and stones. This will make you look more playful and bold. #getthelook #getitatkerry #kerrymwh #floral #pompoms #cotton #boho #love #peace #style #harmony
