WEEKEND COLOURS// All set up for the @akaruaarrowtownautumnfestival today and am in love with the autumn tints 🍂🍁.

BEHIND THE SCENES// THE JUGGLE OF LIFE IS REAL.
-
We are nearing the first week of the school holidays with these 2 and I love nothing more than the lie ins, empty lunch boxes that don’t need filling and generally the slower pace. -
I’ve come to realise as Arlo 10 and Miela 7 sprout and grow they are drawn to be more with their peers and trying their hand at sport or art. I’ve always been of the less is more approach and have not felt called to fill up their days with after school activities. We go for 2 at the most each term BUT with only 2 activities each that equals 4 trips to town (20 minutes each way), plus soccer Sundays, on top of my my weekly markets and treatments. I’ve realised that I start resisting and resenting all the doing at times as i hit my tipping point and just want to collapse and cry- yes tantrum like. -
As a sensitive type ( without labelling myself) I feel more than ever the daily juggle of this life! -
As I head into the weekend with a big market tomorrow it’s a reminder to honour how I tick in the world and to bring more small intentional self care moments into my day- that’s what I’m all about here at True Mindful Beauty. Time to start walking the talk some more. -
This looks like to me: walks in nature, sitting in nature,breathe and meditation, tea time, bath rituals and learning to be more gentle and compassionate with myself instead of insisting on being a super woman! Just not me! -
Lovelies are you feeling the juggle? Do you have any small selfcare rituals that bring you back to centre and ground you into your day? I’d love to hear what works for you?
Here’s to creating more space for you this weekend.

THE EMOTIONAL CONNECTION TO RADIANT SKIN// Lately I’ve been delving deep into the brain-skin connection and how stress and our emotions can effect the health of our skin.
-
Through my own life experiences I am connecting more with this body of work and how our emotional state and the way we are showing up in the world or not showing up truly aligned with our own soul can manifest in both our body and on our skin.
-
So much more to share but for now I want you to start to become aware of any emotional states (anger, fear, sadness...) that may be contributing to that red fiery rash on your chin, the congested acne or eczema that is unrelenting and irritating. -
Just maybe treating the underlying emotions could be your biggest skin saviour. -
I’d love to hear if any of you have worked through emotional healing and found your skin issue has been resolved?

MARKET UPDATE //
I’ll be at the following this week:
-
THURSDAY / @wanakaartisanmarket from 3-6pm
-
SATURDAY / I’ll be getting amongst the Autumn tints over the hill for the Arrowtown Autumn Festival from 10-4pm on the Library Green.

INTRODUCING TRUE FACIAL RITUALS & HOLISTIC MASSAGE.
-
Restore your mind. Relax your body. Recharge your soul.
-
This week I am excited to be adding to the True Mindful Beauty experience in offering my skill set as a massage therapist and facialist. -

It feels like coming full circle. 12 years ago I had my own Massage therapy business here in Wanaka with 5 therapists working along side me taking our mobile services to the people. I also offered Natural NZ facials! -
Today I honour the experiences and growth path I’ve been on since then and welcome you to my very own sacred space to deeply nurture your skin, body, mind and soul.
-
I have created a haven for you to step away from your day and am available by appointment during the school holidays and will the be adding a booking schedule to my website for your convenience along with a menu of facial and massage options available.
-
I can’t wait to connect with you soon. With Love Nicki x

FRIDAY MORNING SITTING SPOT // MY BODY FEELS Peaceful, Connected, Open and Warm. Pretty good start going into the school holidays. Not sure how it will feel later? ...
-
How does your body feel? Pause and check in with her now regardless of where and what you are doing. When you sit still for just a moment you will be able to listen to your body and what it is telling you. What it needs? Go with that.

SKIN CHANGES WITH THE SEASONS // Wonder Balm to the rescue.
-
Skin goes through seasonal changes much like nature. As we transition through Autumn here in New Zealand the days are growing shorter. Darkness brings us indoors earlier and the air temperature fluctuates between warm afternoon and crisp cool mornings.
-
Our skin needs to also adjust to these shifts in nature. -
Now is a time to introduce a balm to your daily skincare ritual.
-
Wonder Balm has many multi-tasking uses for this season. ———————————
- CLEANSE- the perfect cleansing balm to soften and remove dirt, oil and makeup. Gently massage a pea size amount onto dry skin in mindful circular motions. Remove with a warm Muslim cloth.
———————————
-MOISTURISE- use as your daily protection against moisture loss. Delivering pure nourishment to dry, distressed skin. Mist first with Courage Face Mist and apply a pea sized amount lovingly to your skin.
—————————
-TREAT- use as a first aid salve on dry cracked skin, minor cuts and grazes, lips,baby are or as a body moisturiser when needed.
-
As I use no fillers like emulsifying waxes or water in my balm it is highly concentrated and a little goes a long way. ——————-
Available online or find me at the markets this week- weather dependent as we have snow and there’s a crazy mixed bag of weather lined up.
-THURSDAY// @wanakaartisanmarket from 3-pm.
- SATURDAY// @remarkables_market
9-2pm. Last one of the season.
-SUNDAY// @wanakasundaycraftmarket 10-2pm. -

MINDFUL MONDAY // “You know quite well, deep within you,that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation...and that is called loving. Well, then, love your suffering. Do not resist it, do not flee from it. It is your aversion that hurts, nothing else.” +Herman Hesse

BEHIND THE SCENES // THE FIRST TRUE MINDFUL BEAUTY DOOR.
-
My vision and intention for True Mindful Beauty has always been to create a MOMENT for women to pause in their day. This has been lead with my simplified range of product offerings and the daily ritual card that accompanies each product purchased.
-
But I’ve wanted to create more of that Sacred Pause experience and have seen a True Door in my minds eye to extend the experience in a deeply nurturing way.
-
So here’s an image of that door and this week I took on the lease of my own room to offer you beautiful women a moment. To pause. To relax. To let go. To be still.
-
I will share more in the coming days with you.
-
PS This is my dream door. I am accepting of my current white door as the first step.

AUTUMNAL TEA TONES// Deep and warming. Watch this space.

LONG WEEKENDS THAT NEVER END// -
Blessed to get out in nature over the Easter weekend with my girl while doing the market juggle. -
Family + Nature = Success.
-
What is your definition of success? x

WEEKLY MARKETS //
I’ll be at the following markets this Easter weekend.
-
Today @wanakaartisanmarket from 3-6pm.
-
SATURDAY- At @remarkables_market 9-2pm.
-
SUNDAY at @wanakasundaycraftmarket 10-2pm.
-
I’ve been contemplating weather to offer LAYBY on our website. This would allow you to shop and have your order delivered straight away but you would pay for your order over a 4 week period. -
I’d love to hear if you have used this kind of service and if it would make a difference to you shopping for your True organic goodness?
-
PS- I’m currently out of 50g Wonder Balm (awaiting on our beautiful Miron violet glass pots) I do have the Wonder Balm in 30g and 10g.
-
Enjoy the long weekend. May it be filled with lots of pauses and time in Nature.
With Love Nicki x
