Sew is Life is written by E. It is a little space of blogging bliss inspired by art, design, craft, fashion, beauty and wellness. Based in Perth, Western Australia. Read about the daily ramblings of me being a mother of three and wife to an amazing creative man. The second me makes fresh skincare at SELF Organics. These are my stories sewn together with love.
Last weekend, I went to check out the Conscious Living Expo at the Claremont Showgrounds. It was my first time attending this expo and I didn’t know what to expect. I have always had a keen interest in alternative therapies and living a well balanced lifestyle so I thought I would check it out with the family seeing as it was a beautiful day in sunny Perth.
Please be prepared, this post is photo heavy! There was just so much to see and do. It probably isn’t as big as the Sustain Expo which was held in Sydney in July, but there was still a lot to discover. Tickets were selling for 1, 2, 3 or 4 day passes for expo visitors who want to go more than once. Each day there were new talks and guests being showcased, so there was something for everyone.
Here are some photos taken at the event:
These are soy melts for the oil burner
This was the ‘Vera Wang’, which smelt like a soft floral
Little treats on sale
Sustainable living - rain water tanks
Water jellies - they hydrate your flowers and make any space bright and bold
A huge tee-pee that stood in the middle of the show. Inside had various meditation activities, when I passed by, there was a flute player inside.
Belly dancing, something I have always wanted to try out!
Pretty pink Himalayan salt lamps. I could stare at these all day, so calming on the mind…
Aura photos, a bit ‘spooky’ for me
A way to lose weight using vibrations, have you guys tried this before?
There was a whole section dedicated to psychic readings. I have never had a reading before but have always wanted to try. Have you ever tried a psychic reading?
Eco cloth nappies that come in a super soft mink
Beautiful uncut crystals (I love natural crystals!!)
I couldn’t resist this beautiful rock, I would like to stick this on a ring and wear it :)
Bodhi’s gluten free Choc Latte biscuits, tastes so good!
Something for the little ones, I was surprised that these didn’t taste very sweet. But the kids really like it and couldn’t get enough.
Seeing as public interest is increasing in eco, sustainable living and natural and organic goods, I hope to see a bigger expo in the coming years. I had a fun time checking out all the new and interesting things and hopefully one day I can have a little booth of my own to sell my organic skincare. Just have to get my butt into gear to get my business off the ground. Time is working against me!
Have you made small changes to your lifestyle lately that is environmentally aware or health conscious?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend lovelies!
