“We have not journeyed all this way across the centuries, across the oceans, across the mountains, across the prairies, because we are made of sugar candy.”

~ Sir Winston Churchill

What if for one night you could play as though you were sugar candy? At ease, in the flow, giggling, hugging, lounging, creating and finding some of your own magic as you traveled through different worlds…

20 women gathered together at The Loft and traveled through worlds making their own magic and now one of you will receive a box in your home to journey through and play as though you were sugar candy.

What you’ll win :: Sugar Candy Adventure at Home

A jar of brown sugar foot scrub created by Persephone Brown just for you to give yourself some divine comfort.
 
A mini altar with sparkles, intentions and a prayer written to you from Mara Glatzel which you can hold in the palm of your hand and feel guided and grounded and open.
 
Inside of the altar tin you will find a reiki charged crystal that Sarah Rubin filled with energy and safety and blessing.
 
A crown, handmade with vintage materials from Chelsae Biggs who also will be including a secret mantra hidden inside the crown just for you. (See picture down below for beautiful women wearing their crowns.)
 
Some sugar candy for color and inspiration.
 
And I have tucked in a mini vision book (if you win and have no idea what a vision book is, email me, I’ll hook you up), a few pre-cut words and images to start your journey towards dreaming and asking yourself this question…

To enter the giveaway leave a comment at the bottom of this post playing with this question::

Close your eyes. Ask all of your senses, including intuition, to be present in that stillness. Enlist your senses as you ask yourself where you feel called to journey towards as you are pulled into your own fierce magic.

A haircut after a year of ponytails. A plane ticket. Tea with a soulsister. Tears with a lover to find deeper laughter. Opening your body even through fear. Giving away the clothes that don’t fit. Setting the coffee pot in the morning as an act of love to your future self. Writing that poem that aches to be set free. Blowing bubbles as you stand on the shore. Taking the class that you talk yourself out of because of this and that. Finding a babysitter. Hanging up the vision board on the kitchen wall. The tattoo. Putting on the dress. Saying yes to the challenge. That nap.

(I know what you are thinking. Why didn’t I just ask you to share it on FB and Twitter and blah blah! Because I want you to journey, I want you all to feel your sugar candy magic and claim that one thing.)

Sugar Scrub

2 cup sugar of choice (white, brown, raw)
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup coconut oil
2 Tbl vanilla
2 Tbl of lemon zest
 
Blend all ingredients in a bowl using your hands.
Transfer to a pretty little jar.
 

Eggplant Fritters

Dice one large eggplant and lay onto a baking sheet. Cover it generously with olive oil. Add half of an onion, diced and a sprinkle of sea salt. Roast in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes or until soft. Allow to cool.

Give the eggplant a quick chop, this will be about 2 1/2 to 3 cups of eggplant.

Add eggplant to a mixing bowl with one beaten egg.

Add in 2 tablespoons of capers.

One cup of Romano cheese, grated, goes into the mix.

One cup of finely chopped kale leaves (about two kale leaves) and gently mix it together adding in 2 cloves of garlic, chopped and 1 1/2 cups of almond meal (or flour).

Place generous tablespoon sized balls onto a greased piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Press down slightly on each ball. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and firm to the touch. Allow to cool. Serve warm or room temperature. These are great topped with a yummy dressing and over salad. Often I make a dip for these with some Veganaisse, lemon juice, honey, salt, pepper and italian dried spices. So good.

 

Rosemary Cassis Bubbly

In a long stem glass layer in 3 blackberries, a splash of cassis and a stem of rosemary. Pour your favorite bubbles over and sip while laughing, playing, visioning, bathing, putting on sexy lipstick or cooking dinner with Bublé.

I feel as though I’m being called to share my story, as a way of opening and healing myself and connecting with others who have been or are going through the same things. <3

Walk in the power of my bright light. Smile widely when it’s questioned and answer as I would to a confused child. Explain w love that I am ALL that I am. Simple. big and so beautiful.

I am being called to journey to a place where sunshine warms my face and warm breezes blow my hair. Where I can be with one of my soul sisters and feel her understanding and unconditional love. Where there is no time or have to’s.

Adornment. For myself, for my home. I’ve neglected both for far too long.

I feel pulled towards a career in the creative. Something that will bring love, light and laughter to woman. Something to bring us all together.

I feel called to journey towards a life of spirit, where I take as my own the soul quieted space I need to breathe, feel, hear – AND the ground to stand on once I hear. Both. As often as needed and then repeat. XOXO!

I am headed to the scary, exhilarating, wide and wonderful unknown spaces of my full potential of my true self!!! My word of the year is “wide open”…open to unexpected adventures, thrilling challenges, difficult choices, brilliant successes, open to whatever comes my way (and even a few things that I may have to seek out)!!!

I am being called towards the freedom to create with abandon. Without worrying about whst others think. That it only matters that I am true to me. True to what I love.

Feeling drawn to train to teach Curvy Yoga class to help other women start or continue their self-love journeys, as I continue mine. Weaving a web of love and sisterhood <3

Wherever I need/want to go in that moment. Sometimes it is a new shade of lipstick, sometimes it is a plane ticket for celebration or education, sometimes it is an intimate talk with my beloved or play with my littles. It is listening and unfolding in my souls desire in the moment and the series of moments at hand.

I am called to finish my masters in art therapy and find wonderful ways of bringing it to the world. Also to continue to seek out and commune with other wonderful ladies as we explore our passions, our gifts, and our lives.
