The Week Ahead – Embrace your inner awesome chic (+homework)

photo (47)

Hello Happy Hipsters! Welcome to this week! Oh, here’s a thing – just because this post is was posted on a certain day about a certain week, that doesn’t mean that it can’t relate to you where you are right now – whether it’s next week, next month next year or years from now when you’re stumbling across this post. Yes, I am very hopefully this blog will last for years! If you feel like this message is for you – it is for you. And that’s not just about this post, or this blog, this is about anything you find anywhere anytime.

This week we have the beautiful Empress from the Cosmic Tarot. I love the Empress card already – she’s number 3 which is a number I totally resonate with (that’s why all the 3’s on my Facebook and Instagram and Twitter accounts!) and she’s just an awesome woman who’s totally embracing her chic power!

OK so this week’s message is actually an activity! OMG I love activities! I hope you do too… now you can use your journal and go crazy with this, or you can just think about your answers as you read, or both, or you can make a collage or do a painting or make a video or whatever the hell you feel like!

Think of an awesome chic – the first awesome chic you can think of; celeb or real, and dudes this will work for you too so keep going!

❤ List at least three things that make this chic awesome

❤ List at least three things you have in common with this awesome chic

❤ Now what’s one thing you can do right now to be more like this awesome chic? (I’m not suggesting here that you should not be yourself and start acting like Beyonce or whoever, but if there’s something about someone else that you wish you were a bit more like then it’s totally OK to find that thing within yourself right?!)

Here’s my answers…

❤ Think of an awesome chic – the first chic that comes to mind is Cyndi Lauper!

❤ What makes this chic awesome? She totally has her own style, she’s an advocate for LGBT rights, she’s absolutely gorgeous without fitting the normal standard of beauty.

❤ Three things we have in common – sometimes we have orange hair, we both love singing, and we have both been known to dance on trash cans.

❤ One thing I can do right now to be more like Cyndi Lauper – embrace my weirdness.

So this week I’m embracing my weirdness! I’d love to know what message you all got from your inner awesome chic! 🙂

Love, light and embracing your inner awesome!

The coolest Tarot cards of the 1980’s

Tarot cards are so art, and nothing is cooler than 80’s art. Except 80’s art on tarot cards! Woah! Imagine sitting down to get your reading and your psychic is dressed in an 80’s gypsy outfit and pulls out a deck of 80’s tarot cards… hey, I think I’m seeing my future career calling – 80’s tarot readings by the new age hipster, leave your iPhones at the door!

So what deck are we using? Oh how about the Cosmic Tarot from 1986? I mean check out those earrings. This deck is going for about a tenner + postage at Amazon.

who are they 2

Or maybe the 1983 Karma Tarot is more your thing… What is even happening here? Who cares, it’s 80’s! It’s rad! And it’s only about £10 from Amazon too!

OK those cards are pretty and all, but they just don’t have enough 80’s hair, and let’s face it, the only reason you want a pack of 80’s tarot cards is for the hair. Well kid you’re in luck! The Art Nouveau Tarot from 1989 is just young enough to remember good hair.

Oh such pretty hair Ken! But wait, Matt Myers didn’t stop there! He actually gave his King of Coins a perm-y mullet thing. Like, WOW.

“You will meet a man with 80’s hair.” = Best fortune ever.

It’s just a damn shame these cards cost like £60 used. SAD!

The Yeager Tarot from 1982 is pretty totally awesome too. Blue horses and whatever else is happening in that picture makes me want it! £20 + postage!

??????????

And introducing – the amazing Medicine Woman Tarot! It’s so earthy and rainbows! Eeee!

OK, that’s enough goofing around, let’s get onto the two decks that are at the top of my Amazon wish list, and yes I know Amazon is bad right now, but I have to keep track of my wishes somewhere. I promise to buy them from an independent retailer if I can. One of these two has to be a pay day purchase for sure!

The Voyager Tarot deck from 1986. It’s basically a collage deck and it’s amazing. I mean look at this kid. As if you don’t wanna pull that in a reading!?

And I’ve saved the most bizarre tarot deck of the 1980’s for last, and it could well be my favourite. It’s called the Morgan Robbins Tarot deck from 1984, it’s not coloured in, but it is amazing.

Be sure to follow me on instagram at newagehipster333 to check out my posts of these cards as soon as I get them! Wheeeeee!!

Love, light and time travelling tarot!

Styx + angels

I’ve listened to this song so many times but I never knew it was about angels and star-ships until I heard the lyrics for the first time this morning!

I’m sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
I’ve got to be free, free to face the life that’s ahead of me
On board, I’m the captain, so climb aboard
We’ll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I’ll try, oh Lord, I’ll try to carry on

I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we’ll try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said
They said come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

I thought that they were angels, but to my surprise
They climbed aboard their starship and headed for the skies
Singing come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
