Social media is already full of polished, edited, filtered, perfected versions of people and their lives, so let's get real! Join the No BS Writers' Challenge in September for a tongue-in-cheek celebration of the less glamorous side of writing. Warts, and all! Who's with me? Unedited, unkempt, unwashed! #noBSwriters #septemberchallenge #photochallenge #instagramchallenge #igchallenge #writingchallenge #writing #amwriting #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #authorslife #writerslife #writingcommunity #authorsofig #writersofig #igauthorlife #indieauthor #indiebooks #scifiauthor #fantasyauthor #urbanfantasyauthor #urbanfantasyauthorcommunity #indieauthormarketers #indieauthorsofinstagram #readindie #supportindieauthors #justsupportsmall
Who is up for this?? Im in :) #Repost @birgit_koopsen (with @report.for.insta ) ... Are you ready for a new challenge? Summer vacation is coming to an end and I think it’s time to dust off the gel plates and get into the habit of doing a little bit of gel printing every day. In March last year I organized the first gel printing challenge here on IG and it was a lot of fun! People have been asking if I would do it again and here we are :) . How does it work? In a couple of days I will post a list of prompts. These can be techniques, tools, colors, shapes etc. and I will post a photo or video with those prompts every day in September. Starting September 1st, you can join me and create something every day too, using the prompts (or as few/many days as you can do, no pressure!). It can be as small or big as you want. Tags, art journal pages, scrapbook pages, collage material, backgrounds… it’s up to you. The only rule is that you have to use your gel plate :) . Throughout the month you will find new like-minded friends, learn new techniques and ways to use your gel plate, get inspired, get challenged and have a lot of fun! Soooo, are you in??? I hope to see you September 1st for a joyful month filled with gel printing and color!! . Please feel free to share this post, the more people participate the more fun! Use #birgitkoopsengelprintingchallenge for your posts so we can find you and leave you some love. By the way… check out that hashtag. We used it last year and there are more than 3K posts already to inspire you! 😃 . . . . . #birgitkoopsen #birgitkoopsenforcarabellestudio #gelliarts #gelprinting #gelliprint #printmaking #monoprint #markmaking #artjournal #mixedmediajournal #mixedmedia #coloriseverything #igchallenge #artteacher #creativelifehappylife #colormehappy #ihavethisthingwithcolor #fortheloveoflayers #makersgonnamake #mixedmediaartist #colorcrush #mixedmediacollage #craftingtherainbow #artjournallove #creativelifehappylife #livecolorfully #colorlovers #colorcolourlovers #inspirationiseverywhere

DAY 11 of our Top-To-Toe-Wellness 🧘🏻‍♀️GIVEAWAY 🙌🏻 to inspire and encourage you to find time for YOU and enter into a draw for AMAZING prizes! • Today is all about ... Hamstrings! Those tight bands that run along the backs of our legs & as an avid Runner (ahem part time jogging enthusiast) are kryptonite to my flexibility here. • As can be seen from my ‘splits’ - there’s a long way to go ... or truth be told I’ll likely never get there, because neither is it in my desire to - but I’m always going to be fighting against it with other activities. • That’s no bad thing. Yoga compliments, well my daily life, but it also compliments & counterbalances other body workouts.

This morning I'm getting longer and taller. Maybe the space will have some outside? I love yoga outside. I love waking up early to feel my body and to connect. I love that I decide bravery on whim...my nerdy human is usually quite ready before she commits believe it or not. So when we said we were doing a headstand right here, I did not hesitate....til I got upside down and realized my Security was gone. "Where the fuck is my wall?" so my heart powered all the way to my knees but my feets still were afraid! With less than figure skating grace returned to the ground safely & I'm so proud of her! Oh and so excited for all the new! Also widening my warriors and reaching for reachier balance! Looking at 2 places today. Yesterday's place was so much closer to IT! I feel good about finding a yoga home today. I feel ready. <3 How are you? Do you wake up early to spend time by yourself? Tell me about it. Today is day 5 of the #somanywaystoselfcare #IGchallenge and it's my turn to share my care. #Join us in sharing a pic of your self care or a selfcare selfie, follow us and use the hashtag #somanywaystoselfcare to win a prize! <3 #selfcarescomesinmanyforms #selfcarecomesfirst #selfcare #selfcareteacher #yoga #yogateacher #yogaoutside #wellness #happyNess #wakeupearly #HumanBEing #mostpotential #whomovedmycheese #thankyoumoreplease
In Ayurveda, it’s what you do everyday that counts. In this ancient holistic healthcare system, daily routines and rituals are so important. We accumulate toxins all day long. Everything we eat, drink, think, speak, hear, read, watch and do becomes inputs that are absorbed into our mind and body systems. Whatever we don’t assimilate becomes Ama, undigested toxic material that causes imbalance. In order to kindle our Agni, or digestive fire, we need to be mindful of everything we consume, and engage in daily practices to cleanse and detox our body, mind and spirit. Oil pulling is one daily routine that I have come to love. You simply swish oil (I prefer coconut oil or sesame oil depending on the season) around in your mouth for 15-20 minutes, cleansing your teeth and gums. It draws the toxins out of the body, and promotes oral hygiene and dental health. Oil pulling reduces the bacteria we have in our mouths that can cause illness and even serious health conditions. Ayurveda is the sister science of Yoga. To blend both practices, I usually do some gentle backbends and heart openers like Anuvittasana (standing backbend pose) or balance poses like Vrksasana (tree pose) while I’m performing this daily routine.
