Shout from the rooftops! I’m TOTALLY in love…with Elvis! I Sorry I just couldn’t keep it in!

image

You know you’re onto a winner when you’re so in love you graffiti each other like teenagers…he brings you vegan salads home from Starbucks because you had no time to cook…he texts in the middle of the day to remind you he loves you…and you get butterflies when you think of him getting home from work. Smile and sing to Taylor Swift while you’re feeding the pets and missing him because he went home 5 minutes ago.

Seriously…I wasn’t expecting to fall in love. My last relationship was with someone who was unkind and kind of arrogant. He wasn’t liked by my friends or family as they felt him living with me while I worked and he painted toy soldiers…was kinda taking advantage. They didn’t know the extent of it. And at the time, neither did I. But the great thing about being an aspergirl is that once you realise someone’s taking you for a ride you move on quickly and the emotional baggage evaporates as it dawns on you…he was an emotional scammer…a liar…possibly a narcissist…and according to himself was jealous and resentful and angry.

Anyway. Takes more than that keep an aspergirl down! We’re uncompromising in that way!

This year was almost Shakespearean. It’s so unlikely. My dad became ill and died. Peacefully at home with us taking care of him. I spent the summer dancing in the garden to carnival and hip hop…and was much admired by my neighbour. A friend of my dad’s. Known commonly as Elvis. Elvis is the kindest and most genuine man I have ever met. He was with me and my family throughout. Friends with my friends. Drop dead gorgeous. And somehow it went from conversations over the balcony to excitedly planning our first Christmas together in a matter of months.

He treats me like a princess. We sometimes bicker about silly things. But we make up fast. We are both are self employed so work our hours around each other as much as poss so we have lots of time together.

He has nearly as many tattoos as me. Loves my corsets and red hair. Loves…some stuff you guys will just have to guess at. He’s a teddy boy. I dress in Victorian styles (mostly…but also some Harajuku & Lolita styles sometimes). We make a striking couple.

Spend nights day dreaming about owning a gypsy wagon and a carousel.

He comes home showered and always happy…he loves his work like I love mine. And we are both independently happy but happier together.

I felt the need to come out and make it official. We’ve been ‘going steady’…but now our considerations for our life together spread into years.

He notices everything I love and got me a Nemesis Now fairy and unicorn statue for my birthday, a Marc Jacobs perfume and a long Joe Browns hippie chick cardigan. Sooooo thoughtful.

We love listening to motown. We love music full stop. He notices when I henna my hair. He even likes the smell of henna. He looks after me. I help him out too of course…but the point of this blog is to try to cover everything I adore about my Elvis…without even mentioning his abs (swoon).

He is fit. V strong. Tall. Thin. Always polite and well turned out. Never judges. Always asks me about how something makes me feel as far as my aspergers goes…he genuinely cares.

I have known him through my dad for a number of years…he thought I was a teenager though. When he found out I was his age and I was the mysterious nocturnal hermit girl…the wooing began in earnest. And within a few days we were sneaking about to hook up…totally the worst kept secret in the neighbourhood, he was spotted leaving my home at five in the morning twice! 

He is amazing. I tell him that all the time. But now we’re making plans for Christmas I feel things are official enough for me to blog this and say…it’s official! We are in a long term relationship. We’re totally in love. And both deliriously happy.

Sorry if I sound like an extended advert for Clinton Cards…but it’s that good!

If Facebook had the option, our relationship status would be soulmates ❤

Happy happy days in boho heaven!

PS. Sorry to anyone who found my ‘shout from the rooftops’ overly dramatic and sentimental. I hope you find someone like I did some day too.

Mini Blog | Cruelty Free Stoptober Experiment | www.tumblr.annalouisemay.net | www.wordpress.annalouisemay.net

I will review products individually in small blogs over the coming weeks. But before I do, I thought a little update.

As anyone who follows my blog is aware…I am v lazy. I rarely wear make up. I don’t wear foundation. I tend to keep a neat look by making sure my hair is hennaed and my roots are done and well conditioned. My eyelashes and eyebrows are tinted. My eyebrows are shaped and tidy. My lips are hydrated. My skin is hydrated. And I wear lipstains like Benetint or Posie Tint from Benefit usually, with a Burts Bees tinted lipbalm to top up. Or I used a revlon lipgloss/stain, applied it and wiped it off to leave a fuschia tint that didn’t look over done.

I’m 42. I don’t have much sun damage. I don’t really have lines. My skin is normal. Sometimes a bit dry in winter. I went through some hassle when I came off the pill five years ago and my skin got dry. Nothing seemed to work. I knew it would be hormonal and would balance out. I tried all kinds of creams and ended up with a rash from one and thought, that’s it. I will bite the bullet and try Creme de la Mer. Everyone raves about it. It can’t make this worse and I am wasting a fortune. (Note – I tried Lush’s Skin’s Shangri La at this time. Not cheap. It sorted the moisture but gave me clogged pores).

3 weeks later my skin was transformed to the point people thought I had, had something done. It appeared poreless. Spotless. Smooth. Moisturised. And I was amazed. Truly hadn’t expected a miracle despite the reviewers claims. But it was one!

Since then I have favoured La Mer moisturisers. The body cream, eye balm, moisturiser and lip balm. I also use the regenerating serum in the summer as a light alternative.

According to the PETA, La Mer, owned by Estee Lauder lost its cruelty free status a few years ago. This wasn’t due to anything La Mer or Lauder changed but rather a change in PETA categorisation. La Mer don’t test on animals. Their products are not made by people who do. La Mer is essentially cruelty free. But…they sell to China. And the Chinese test every skincare product they sell on animals.

So now a moral dilemma. Is La Mer cruelty free as it was until a few years back before being reclassified? Is is cruelty free when I buy it in the UK but not if I bought it in China. Or is it immoral for La Mer/Lauder to sell to China and we should boycott them by virtue of a lack of integrity? Or should we all lean heavily on China to stop their methods?

For me, my Stoptober experiment was interesting. I am recently full vegan (diet not lifestyle) after being mostly vegetarian since my teens. And I had used Lush products during my Stoptober experiment as I have enjoyed them since their Cosmetics to Go days.

Well. The second my experiment ended, I am back on La Mer. In a month it really wrecked my face. The Fun I used as body wash was great. And I liked the body lotions I used. Liked. They did give me soft skin. But in honesty…they weren’t user friendly. Not fast to absorb. Some better than others and my dry skin on my legs cleared up…but I was using argan oil all over before bed too (in place of bio oil).

Having to look into each product was interesting. Lush use some harsh foaming agents. They use laureth-4 which is not good for allergy prone skin. They do use some petroleum based additives…but the ingredients list on the labels is user friendly and the natural ingredients…all good. But the bad side? Being honest, the smells which seem such a treat when used occasionally, when used together create such a strong smell I couldn’t wear perfume all month because my hair smelled of vanilla, my body smelled of orange and patchouli after washing with something smelling citrusy and bathing in a sakura scented bath.

It got a bit much really. Especially because the body lotions (while effective) seemed to need a half hour sinking in period before dressing. Something I don’t have. So they may be good for before bed but daily use did become more time consuming than I am used to.

So for this month…a simple test…I will use the Lush bath stuff and washes as before. Herbalism and Ocean Salt for my face. But only La Mer body cream, argan oil, La Mer moisturiser and serum. And see how I go.

I can’t make a conclusion at all…these are hardly clinical trials. But I am starting to wonder if maybe the moisturising bath and shower stuff I was using left a detergent residue on my skin causing the dry patches…watch this space anyway!

Also, those who think Creme de la Mer is crazy expensive…£70 wasted on Lush face moisturisers that ruined my skin is worse. If you bought a bath bomb for each day of a month – about £3 a day that would cost you twice as much as using Creme de la Mer face moisturiser (a little goes a long way).

One thing I will quickly big up though! Lush’s lipsticks and eyeliners – versatile and work v much in the way I use Benetint/Posie Tint. I will definitely continue using their make up and hair care…by the end of November I will decide whether I will continue with their cleansers too!

So my subject to review conclusion at this point is…I think Lush and La Mer will work well together for me.  I think my dry skin problems may have come from using Dove products that are too full of chemicals and slightly irritated my skin.

Also…my eyes have been opened to the fact that sometimes choices are based on what works best and others may choose based on company ethics. And right now, I am not sure where I stand on that.

I love…waking up looking like it’s day 3 of a festival in a field & listening to James so I get that 90s indie vibe!

“Sometimes when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your soul”

And I am heading for a fabulous night…Elvis (my bf) will be arriving with Vegan Falafel Chickpea & Couscous salads from Starbucks after I’ve had a Lush Bubblebath & am covered in Karma Kreme cruelty free skincare (an aside – AM LOVING oznaturals superyouth retinol & hyalauronic acid moisturiser!).

EVEN MORE FABULOUSNESS! We started watch American Horror Story Freak Show on Netflix. But the app plays up – so happy the dvds just arrived from Amazon and ready for a great night! X

I love…being a hippie! ♡

I love…being a hippie! (Or…perhaps due to my penchant for all things victorian, a bohemian is more accurate…maybe a boho loves poetry more than psychedelic rock & tiedye?)

Anyway…VVV excited abt animal cruelty free stoptober now! Was worried abt coping with the changes u often get when your body gets used to new products.

I will be doing weekly reviews and mostly on Lush cosmetics – but also on stuff I use regularly henna for my preraphaelite redhead style, vegan & cruelty free makeup (I wear v little but a decent fuschia lipstick & a reliable red lipstick are my staples! So nervous of trying those but committed to the process).

Also using hyalauronic acid & vit c serum from olOznaturals, Biona coconut oil & will be using an organic argan oil for dry areas too.

Am so far loving the feeling of not rubbing petrol based, mineral oil & chemical nasties into my body and hoping it ‘sinks in’, while being aware, if I knew what was in it, I would probably hope it didn’t!

Anyway, watching Forks Over Knives, Earthlings and Cowspiracy definitely heightened my resolve to commit to an ethical and karmically sound diet and lifestyle…the diet part is no big change for me…the other parts are more of a challenge!

18th August 2015 – Happy days friends! Have had a lovely day to day.  Dad’s recovering well after the chemo.  It’s kind of odd because the chemo has knackered him but some of his brain tumour symptoms (numbness on his left hand especially), seemed worse. But the numbness in his face is reduced.  When they did the radiotherapy and chemo intensive, they obviously did some tests on the tumour type to see if it will respond to the treatment and I’ve been giving him energy healing – part of my Soul Midwifery duty – which is an absolute honour…challenging for sure, but any way we get to express our love for those we love in this life is something to be treasured…for sure, I think my hippieness is rubbing off on everyone right now.  Even Spider seems supremely snuggly and mellow…but that might just be because I’m so fluffy and cute! (No disputing that eh?!).

Anyway, they said the intensive therapy might make all the symptoms worse and knackered him out badly at first and we’d have to wait to see how it settled in the weeks after it.  Some people in his position at his age and with his type of cancer and its location, wouldn’t be able to complete a course of chemo – they might not even be able to begin a course if they were not in good health in all other ways. At first, throughout the chemo and radiotherapy daily thing, he was fine – his symptoms reduced massively and his energy was fine.  He’s been making stuff out of wood (he’s always making stuff!) – doing my garden and growing veggies and stuff.  Towards the end he was getting tired but in that kind of achy way you have if you’ve got a bad cold, except without the cold!  Now it’s over a week since the chemo/radiotherapy intensive finished and the numbness did start getting worse again so they increased his steroids to try to reduce swelling around the tumour (caused by the radiotherapy); unfortunately that messed with his sleep and he felt much worse for a few days.  To the point he even wondered if he’d recover or whether he was on the home straight.  We all discuss these things openly though and I think that really helps everyone – it’s where my autism comes in extremely handy because I can facilitate a practical discussion about things that other families might find more difficult. 

I can be ‘involved’ but at the same time my brain can take a very objective view and that can be helpful for keeping perspective and making sure everyone’s on the same page.

I have to say, as my life goes on, I find my Aspergers to be more and more of an asset! I know there are people that think it’s just a ‘genius gene’ thing or that it’s a sign of an ‘old soul’ incarnated – or even a higher being incarnating for a purpose.  I don’t know – I know it makes me different to other people in some ways.  But the blessings that come with it far outweigh any challenges!  So I’m thanking my lucky stars all the time for my uniqueness; and really appreciating the uniqueness of everyone else.  It’s like – everyone’s one six billion, and it’s an amazing thing that we can all be so unique and yet, have so much in common and so much to share.  It really is a beautiful thing.  So…remember…

YOU ARE AN EXTRAORDINARY PERSON, JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!

My personal spiritual view means I view each individual as an expression of a single Source that many would call ‘God’.  And no matter how flawed or imperfect, there is a connection between us all because of our common Source; and that Source is perfect; on some level we all are already perfect – and we spend our lives kind of working out ways to ‘cut the crap’ so we can express that perfection within us a bit more and in all kinds of ways.

Anyway…back on topic – as I said in yesterday’s blog, it will be a while before we know how well the chemo and radiotherapy worked but because the steroids messed up his sleep dad’s felt worse for a few days.  But he got a really good night’s sleep yesterday and today spent the day with my sister. Then I went round and we jammed for a while and had a laugh.  Then my honey got back from work and joined us.  I know it’s probably ‘eek’ to some, but I’m sooooo loved up I can’t help singing his praises every chance I get! He’s absolutely the kindest person I’ve ever met.  He’s honest and straightforward…and as my
sister pointed out…the first long term relationship I’ve had where my partner was as independent, dependable, straight talking and hard working as I am.  She’s right.  He really is good for me!   If I ever sat and wrote a list about my requirements for a man, Elvis/Spider wouldn’t have matched the list.  But he makes me happy and he’s my equal in ways that my partners before never have been.

I will be writing a further blog about that actually – the blog earlier this month about Covert Narcissistic Personality Disorder – I read back over it and realised that I’d not explained very well the gist of it, the red flags, what you can do about it and what you can’t do about it.  Also, I have to admit that when I posted it, my comments related solely to my recent ex – but he’s not the first ex I have had that would tick so many of the boxes and some of the similarities between past partners really show up.  But mostly, I want to write an article about abuse and abusers.  A Covert Narcissist can manipulate a person in ways they don’t identify as abuse at all – and only looking back do you see there was any kind of systematic attempt to control or manipulate.  And there are many forms of abuse but the effects are devastating.  Again, I can thank my autism for allowing me to experience the ‘recovery’ (for wont of a better word), subjectively but also to intellectualise it and to draw a line under it in a way that might be harder for others.  But it’s something I have studied and something that interests me.  I have first hand experience too.  And I’m happy to share what I’ve learned through personal experience, study and professionally.  Not just because I think the information can help others who may be experiencing problems or trying to process the fall out of problems in the past, but because of the nature of my work, I consider the energetic/karmic component to such situations.

In magick we consider any act of will, an act of magick.  So if someone intentionally punches you in the face to hurt you, they have done the same thing as someone who plants a hex bag on your car and hopes you’ll run into trouble.  The intention is what makes these things the same.  And that’s why when it comes to resolving things, as a witch and holistic teacher, I would consider that someone suffering after the trauma of an abusive relationship (whatever kind of abuse it was), if possible should seek help with the symptoms of the anxiety or depression from a medical professional – even if it’s to find a good counsellor and you’re averse to trying any medications even for a limited time.  But also, I’d recommend they learn and practice energy healing and meditation (Kundalini Reiki, Avalonian Alignment – particularly good for this); and if they felt it would help and would be appropriate for them, there are magickal options that I provide that can assist to resolve karmic imbalance, help you ground and protect yourself and reverse negative energies.  And all of these things combine to work on your situation in different ways; you’re getting support and reassurance from different areas as well as empowering yourself with new skills and information.  I think that’s important.

Anyway…I seem to be whittering on!  I was just a bit disappointed when I re-read the earlier blog I wrote about CNPD because it didn’t really give the information I had intended it to.  So I may give that an edit when I get down to writing an article.

In the meantime – there are some great vlogs on youtube explaining the different kinds of antisocial behavioural issues people have and how to deal with them – what to do in practical terms if you find yourself a victim of them.  And for those interested in learning meditation and self healing techniques you can find information on http://www.mayastar.net/courses.htm – and for magickal options http://www.mayamagickal.net XX

Better get on.  I’ve extended the 24 Gift Offer for the Magickal Shaman Lightworker course due to the popularity!  It’s a wonderful system and I highly recommend it.  If you’re interested you can find the Gift Offer information at http://www.mayastar.net/gift.htm 

So…there’s my work finished for the night! A little temple work to complete in the morning but I’m going to chill out, have some lemonade (on the master cleanser!), and then wake up my honey as he’s got an early start this morning.

Happy days and love to all XXXX Kisses XXXX And thanks to those who have continued to follow my blog and social media through last year.  It was kind of a ‘fallow period’ for me and I spent a lot more time meditating and in prayer than usual…in fact, I would say for about six months I was actually very introverted.  I tend to be quite an introvert but not for extended periods…but I guess there was a lot going on in my personal life and it was a transitional period and I seemed to do an awful lot of reading too.  I’m sure it will all be useful for my work over the coming years.  There’s never been a time I haven’t loved the work I do through Mayastar and Maya Magickal – if anything, over time I’ve grown to understand it and love it in more ways.  And of course, my students and clients are always the most fabulous people because they are people that are taking charge of their lives…making changes…empowering themselves energetically and through study.  Really wonderful ❤  Deep gratitude to everyone who has been a part of Mayastar…my friends, family, students and clients….it's always appreciated and I think everyone shares in 'good' in different ways XXXX  Happy happy happy happy days!

17th August 2015 – I’ve been awful at updating my blog…so sorry to those who follow it!  Most updates get posted on the FB before anything else so if you’re not already subscribed, please follow on http://www.annalouisemay.net

I’ve had tons of enquiries lately for magickal resolution of problems with psychic attack, suspected psychic attack – or any situation where you have been involved in an abusive relationship or have experienced a period of low energy, or negative thinking that you consider has become something like a vicious cycle.

Magickally speaking, these situations are identical; the source of the ‘attack’ or the identity of the ‘attacker’ doesn’t need to be known or defined in order to resolve the problem using magick.  If the problem is long standing or something you feel has become complex in that one problem has drawn new problems to you and this has continued over a period until the situations such a ‘mess’ that you can’t really work out what started it in the first place!  Well, often what starts the situation

in the first place might be resolved, but negative effect of it may not have been cleared with the resolution of the original problem simply because the situation became too complex.

I receive many emails from people about this and it’s clear they want to do something to turn it around but feel they need to justify their position – or explain how it happened.  I would like to reassure you, you don’t need to justify yourself and you don’t need to work out how the situation came about.  Magickally, what I do best is solve problems by reweaving the karmic bonds as they currently stand.  If the client wants to analyse the situation independently for any personal reason, that’s fine and that’s up to them and something they may feel useful to them.  But it’s not something that’s necessary for me to do in order to solve the problem quickly and effectively.

There are many solution options and they are always tailored to the individual so if you have any questions or are considering whether magick might assist you in the situation you’re experiencing, please email me mayastar.net@gmail.comand I’d be happy to advise.  You can also find out more information about magickal options, how magick works and my experience personally and professionally at http://www.mayamagickal.net X

On a less work related note…things have been a little hectic!  I’ve been having the time of my life (cue for a song and dancing montage from the 80s!) with Spider (my now ‘official’ boyfriend).  I’ve known him for quite a while through my dad so kind of as a friend.  And there’s no argument, he’s packing an illegal amount of gorgeousness!

I know it may sound just a little insane…if you’re anyone who isn’t a Pre-Raphaelite Princess living a defiantly bohemian lifestyle!…but, it’s true.  Elvis lives in my street.  And I’m dating him.  Not only that, but he thinks I’m lovely.  Even when I’ve just woken up.  Even when it’s pushing 30 degrees outside and I’m wilting in humidity.  Even if I’m having a totally hormonal bitch fit.  Even when I’m struggling to find my key while I sing Lana Del Rey songs with my autoharp.  He also enjoys the whole fairyland experience…even if I’m playing Patience & Prudence on a perpetual loop (though I suppose that’s kinda #TateandViolet #AHS romantic really!).

Yes.  He really is fabulous.  We’re currently at war however…seeing who can graffiti the other one while they’re asleep.

But he’s upped the ante because now it’s escalated to notes hidden in pockets and waking up to find your BF wrote I LOVE YOU all over your patio in chalk while you slept.  Yep.  We’re sickly sweet.  We’re worse than teenagers when it comes to being loved up!

We’re also both very practical so that we get to make the most of the time we have…whatever work I have I schedule it.  He is self employed so we work our schedules in such a ways that any free time we have matches up.  Though I’m just as likely to bump into him round my dad’s.  Dad’s totally knackered at the moment from either the chemo or the radiotherapy but we’re all close and practical and between family and friends, we’re staying a step ahead.  It is strange…life with a ‘lifer’ – my sister and I even said, it’s going to be weird when dad dies because it could be months or even years off depending how he recovers from the aggressive chemo/radiotherapy course he completed.  So whenever it does happen, we were kind of joking saying that, even if it’s 18 months from now, we’ll still be standing about saying “I know he had a terminal brain tumour and all, but you just don’t expect it!”.  I suppose that’s the odd thing about death.  We all know we are going to and most people don’t want to think about it.  Being a lifer or living with a lifer forces you to…and when people are able to talk openly about it and how it may play out and how they feel about it and stuff, it makes a natural process feel all the more natural.

Anyway, dad’s mood continues to be buoyant and he doesn’t actually feel ill at all – just really weak as if he was coming down with something or had just come out of an anaesthetic.  The Violet Flame Energy and Usui Reiki energy seem to suit him best and over the course of a day he can get up and get about a bit.  Just carefully!  But we need to wait a while to see how things settle over the next few weeks.  Apart from the weakness, his symptoms of the tumour itself have either reduced or stayed the same rather than got worse and they were getting worse quite quickly before the intensive chemo.  So the chemo/radiotherapy has definitely done some good – either it’s slowed the tumour but it’s possible that once the swelling around the area dies down, it may have shrunk it and as his energy returns over the next few weeks we’ll have a better idea of how successful it was.  And whether he wants to continue with that kind of treatment etc.  There’s no getting away from it with things like cancer…there has to be a lot of discussion about things that other people might find distasteful or morbid.  But it’s a good thing in ways that people who haven’t experienced it probably won’t understand.  People really pull together.  And people are really amazing when it comes down to it! XX

I know it sounds really hippie, but people really love each other and I think people really come into their own whenever and wherever they have the opportunity to express that love. XX

Note: Sorry no photoshoots lately…many planned for later in the year but, some nice selfies and pix from my moby dotted about to make this blog look prettier! XXX

Much love to ❤ M
