Happy Father’s Day Poppa (In Loving Memory)


My dad died at 67, in September last year. He had an inoperable #BrainTumour. He responded well to chemo…the tumour was fast growing and so from diagnosis to goodbye (for now), wasn’t very long.

He was loved to bits by everyone ♡ His memory lives on in those whose actions are inspired by his love and his often cited “be nice to each other”!

Happy Father’s Day Poppa….miss you millions. And, I stand by my assertion that love is a forever deal and keeps people together through aeons. It wouldn’t be love if it didn’t eh?

I love you dad ♡


Poppa chose this song for his funeral…

“There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all (#Beatles)
I chose this one for him in life and still…


“…Daddy’s smart
And you’re the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

Now I know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side
Even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
Staying back and watching me shine

And I didn’t know if you knew
So I’m taking this chance to say
That I had the best day
With you today”

The @poppaofpeace #PassITOn page is dedicated to my dad. Thank you to those following POPPIO on his social networks – you can find him on Tumblr, Twitter, FB & IG.


I love… | James | Indie | Starbucks | Lush | Vegan Takeout | American Horror Story | Oz Naturals | & Sharing the ♡


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

Anonymous | “Stay hungry, stay foolish” | Follow Your Heart


“Stay hungry, stay foolish”.

I know some people are unsure about what Anonymous stand for…what is hactivism?  Are they some kind of terrorist group or just a bunch of hormonal nerdy teens that troll the net for fun?

Anons are not even a group. Not an organisation. The Guy Fawkes Mask is probably what most people recognise…but it’s not a fashion accessory!

Any Anon will give a different answer to what Anonymous is. Because it is an IDEA. An idea that unifies people (and even non human earth dwellers!)…and that is very basically that…




…V loosely, the Anon idea is that ALL living beings are equally worthy of that life…whatever it is they love; whatever it is they do; whatever their colour, religion, race (and species for that matter). That the freedom to communicate ideas and unify individuals that the Internet has heralded should be protected. Because it’s important that we understand that the very idea of the empowerment of the individual by accessible information is more important than any of the information we may access. It’s the principle that has the power to effect real change.

I see that as a very positive thing. In my work I teach energyhealing, reiki and meditation primarily. It’s a niche…and I am kind of a hippie. I don’t consider my work as being an act of peaceful protest – but I feel strongly and have always promoted the empowerment of the individual. I can’t pass on teaching to someone who doesn’t wish to learn. So it’s a two way street.

If you see stuff going on in the world you don’t agree with, even if you feel powerless to change it – change yourself. Change what you do. Communicate your ideas to others. Don’t just stand idly by because it looks like that’s what everyone else is doing!

Remember, just because something has become THE NORM, doesn’t make it NORMAL. Just because something has become ACCEPTABLE in the mainstream, doesn’t mean it should be unquestionably ACCEPTABLE to everyone.

There are differences we all can make just by choosing the way we see ourselves, the world and others. We can seek out the information that never makes it to the mainstream and make decisions and changes based on it.

It may seem whimsical and far fetched to imagine an individual can change the world. But Anonymous are many individuals, united by ideas. All around the world. People like you and me.

So if you look around and wonder at the hypocrisy, know that there are thousands…maybe millions…doing the same. You’re not alone.

I love this little Anon Vlog…it summarises beautifully just what so many of us know deep down to be RIGHT.

So…follow your heart…xxxx
