Foggy Daylight

In July last year, me and my Brazilian friend Rodrigo Kblo, biked and skated around Byron Bay to get some footage for a video I had in my head. I wanted to create a little film to my song Foggy Daylight. Here’s the result from that day. The track was recorded  with lovley producer Ben Jones at SAE Byron Bay, April 2012.

Thank you guys!

Whitsundays – a piece of paradise

At the end of July, I went on a 2-day sailing and diving-trip to the Whitsundays, 74 Island Wonders located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef on the tropical coast of Queensland, Australia. Me and my family boarded the Catamaran “Wings II” in piqturesque Airlie Beach, excited to float on the turquoise water with  Whitsunday Sailing Adventure.

 

Wings II had an amazing crew that took us around the islands, stopping at great diving and snorkel spots. It was surreal to sail through the epic landscape, and on top of that, see the world beneath us as well. Since 70% of the world is covered in waterm there’s quite a lot to see down there.

I  hadn’t been scuba diving since January last year (when I got my Open Water certificate in Bali) so I was eager to get into the water! We had a great instructor, Jake, very easygoing, calm, passionate and professional so I could feel safe and sound with all the eqipment again.

To get to dive and snorkel at The Great Barrier Reef has been a dream since early school days. I remember reading about UNESCO’s natural wonders of the world: The Great Barrier Reef is one of them – the world’s largest reef system! It’s so big it can be seen from outer space!

The diving was epic and I could feel my whole being smiling – it’s so wonderful to cruise through the water, listen to the breath, watching the beauty harnessed in the underwaterworld: MAGICAL!

 

 

 

More than 1,500 fish species live on the reef, and one of them is our little friend Nemo, also known as the clownfish.

 

The underwater photos  are taken by Jake, the amazing dive master at Wings.

The second day we sailed to the wellknown Whitehaven Beach. All I can say is: Postcard view! Such amazing clear turquoise water and the finest and whitest sand I’ve ever seen. WELCOME TO P A R A D I S E

 

 

 

 

As always when I experience wonders of nature like this – something happens inside. Weird and odd… I just freak out of happiness, blown away by the energy, yet struck by the peace it brings my soul. The whole register of contradictions flows through as I’m breathtaken. I’m crying, smiling, singing, running around FEELING the space with every cell of my body. Whether I’m snowboarding from the top of a mountain through epic backcountry-landscape, or sitting on the whitest beach in the world… it’s bliss. My heart smiles and my soul is at rest when I’m surrounded by grande nature…

the seashells were so fragile and intricate

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The reason why the sand is so white, is because the grains have rested here for millennia. As tides turned and seasons changed the elements stripped impurities from the grains until there was only brilliant white silica left…


The 2 days with Wings II were a once-in-a-lifetime-experience, thanks to the amazing captain, the dive master, the chef, the beautiful weather and the 21 other adventurers on board. I’m so grateful for this trip. Thank you Mom and J for making it happen sooner than never.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you ever take the opportunity to travel to Australia, make sure to visit the Whitsundays. It’ll be a beautiful memory for lifetimes.

BecomeYourDream-Catcher

Ever since I was a kid I’ve been collecting stones, branches, seashells, sticks and cones… The comfort it brings to have a little piece of nature in my room, pocket, around my neck, or on my finger, is fascinating and magical. The way nature erodes, molds, shapes and colors with sand, wind and water, creates amazing energy. That movement of change, that life force, that journey is tangible and unique in each piece. I love that raw pureness!!

The last couple of months I’ve come across some beautiful things along the beaches of Byron Bay and at the Crystal Catle. Some amazing driftwood have become new creations for my room, as well as my own version of chimes/dreamcatcher…there’s more to come…

I always find it interesting to observe the whole process of what a creation looks like in my head, versus the complete piece of art. I’ve had the “BecomeYourDream-Catcher” in my head and been feeling it for the last 2 months…slowly bulding it up as I’ve come across each piece. I’m stoked to finally present my:

Buffalo Girl Teresa “Terry” Cronin

 The last couple of months I’ve been honored to work alongside Terry Cronin, the owner and designer of Buffalo Girl.

I met her on a sunday night at The Italian here in Byron, when my friend Ida introduced us over Espresso Martinis. We clicked immediately and I pretty much started working on the spot editing pictures, planning for the Buffalo Girl-future LOL!

The next day, I joined Terry in her studio and started to cut, stamp, dye and carve leather and suede for bags, belts, cuffs and other amazing adornments. Two months down the road as her assistant, I’m still stunned every day by this Raw, Rad, Mother-Nature-force, Intuitive and Skilled Pioneer that Terry is. Let me introduce this treasure: miss Buffalo Girl herself a.k.a Terry Cronin!

To me, Terry is an Ocean-Soul. By Ocean-Soul I mean a person that has so many layers, so many talents, so much of everything, that you just never hit the bottom of the soul…a person that constantly surprise and inspire with every breath. An Ocean-Soul has strong intuition and wisdom from ancient times, which shines through every step of the way. An Ocean-Soul is a skilled shapeshifter, capable of adapting into anything or any situation required. An Ocean-Soul just IS, a queen and a pioneer with every action. Terry is all that and more!

Getting to know this fierce woman behind Buffalo Girl, is a rock ‘n roll pleasure!

Terry is a cool “Kiwi”-chic that rides horses and dirtbikes, surfs and skates, and back in the early 90’s she was a professional snowboarder as well, representing New Zealand. Raaad!!!

Being around her everyday, I definitely feel her connection with nature and her NZ-lifeforce. Her curly hair, wild and radiant personality, outshines everything! Not to mention her laughter, that rings right into the heart!

Looking at, touching and wearing her handcrafted pieces, is a unique experience! Her passion for life as well as the love of transforming dreams into amazing things, is present in each Buffalo Girl adornment. I love that she lives everything that she is and that Buffalo Girl really is a whole lifestyle. Everything is an extension and an expression of her forest heart, ocean eyes, other worlds, ancient lifetimes, the ups and downs in life and of the intuitive self…

It’s amazing to witness how people connect with her pieces. The wonderful crystals and feathers in her creations gives extra magic, but I believe it’s her instictive feel that makes Buffalo Girl stand out from everything else out there. The raw, unique, healing, sexy and natural energy the adornments radiate, makes people fall in love, head over heels!! People wanna be close to that magical energy – it makes them feel beautiful!

I’m thrilled to get to spend every day in Terry’s studio, watching and learning as we put each piece together. One bag can take a week to make from scratch – cutting, edging, stamping, carving, dying, sealing, lacing etc. – it all needs to be done with love and focus to get the best results… I love that everything is old-school-hand-made and made to last forever. It’s not duplicable, each adornment is a one off and totally unique!

The other day we met a woman who wore a Buffalo Girl-handbag that she got from her husband 8 years ago. It looked amazing!!! She’d only had it re-laced by Terry a year ago, to keep it tiptop – love it!
