Audrey Kitching's Blog
“A thoroughly good relationship with ourselves results in being still, which doesn’t mean we don’t run and jump and dance about. It means there’s no compulsiveness. We don’t overwork, overeat, oversmoke, overseduce. In short, we begin to stop causing harm.”
Who: Audrey Kitching
Where she was born: Philadelphia
Where she lives now: NYC
What she does: Fashion journalist, Model, Designer, Stylist, Studying Reiki Master
What she’s currently working on:
I have so many projects in the works at all times–slightly overwhelming to be honest. The ones taking up most of my time currently are a shoe collection I’m designing for a brand in Italy; The Fashionista’s Budget Bible–a book im releasing this Fall; a limited edition clothing line; Crystal Cactus–hand made crystal necklaces infused with positive vibrational frequencies; and a vegan fashion cooking show online!
What good energy means to her:
Honestly, real, loyal and loving. So many people want to preach about being some type of prophet or god like being yet their actions are so contradicting. If you judge other people, gossip, spread jealousy and are more consumed with materialism then the people and species around you then your probably not spreading good energy! You have to love everything as much as yourself. That’s true positivity.
What she thinks there is too much of, and too little of:
Too little of: chocolate, time for bubble baths, kittens, world love, real education of things that matter and Ryan Goslings.
Too much of: misquotes in the summer, satanic style clothing, bad extensions and peas… I really don’t like peas unless they are snowpeas.
With whom she would like most to go on a tête à tête:
Probably Ryan Gosling, I’m really on a Ryan kick, I think he’s probably really strange and weird in person and I’m into that. But he should have that blond bleached hair and fake tattoos look like in A Place Beyond The Pines.. that was pretty badass.
What she would be doing if she didn’t have her current occupation:
I’m training to be a Reiki Master, so most likely something in energy healing, vegan chef or interior designer.. I kinda do all three as hobby’s anyway. You have to have a passion and love what you do.
On her life-to-do list:
Visit India and ride an elephant, drink vanilla chia lattes under the Eiffel Tower, do yoga at the Egyptian Pyramids, and crack the codes of the universe.
Her earliest memory:
I have this strange memory of being about 2 and standing under the kitchen table in a Minnie Mouse onsie with a pink sippie cup of apple juice..
What she considers a fashion faux-pas:
UGGS, wearing pajama pants in public and trying to wear every trend at the same time.
What cracks her up:
What she can’t live without:
Bubble baths, tea, my iPhone, vegan taco’s, raw kale juice, cats and over-sized sunglasses.
With whom she would like to grow old:
My cat, my boyfriend Daniel and possibly a baby lion.
What she would like to leave to future generation:
Audrey’s WILD Wish:
For everyone to be nice to each other and unicorns to really exist so I can ride one instead of driving.
Emma Watson recently revealed she only has eight pairs of shoes in her possession. In part of the movie The Bling Ring She says that Paris Hilton could never wear all the clothes she owns in her life, half her closet even still have the price tags on it!

I love fresh fruit drinks in the Summer! One of my favorite and super easy ones is a watermelon mint soda!
WHAT YOULL NEED
- Watermelon chopped up (seedless)
- Freh mint leaves
- Fizzy water (This will make it a soda) or Spring water
1. Chop up your seedless water melon and throw it in a blender, add a tiny bit of water and blend until it becomes liquid.
2. Chop the fresh mint in half to release the flavors
3. Add ice, sparkeling or fresh water to half your glass. Pour the water melon juice in the remainder and add the fresh mint! If you have a sweet tooth you can also mix in some natural raw sugar or Agave!
If your anything like me a Monday after a full super moon weekend is not your favorite way to jump into the week. I have been feeling very overwhelmed and rushed on top of being exhausted! I pulled a card this morning for the upcoming week and it's so perfect with timing. It's all about resting, recharging, letting yourself bask in the energy from the full moon!
Card Meaning: Allow yourself to receive. This will increase your intuition, energy, and ability to give to others.
Message from Hathor: You have a maternal side to you that naturally cares for those in need, yet this must be balanced with receptivity or the flow is blocked. Receiving is the essence of feminine energy, and it means allowing yourself to receive with grace and gratitude. If you feel guilty when asking others for help, or if you feel bad about receiving gifts, then you block your feminine energy. Your receptivity is just as natural as your nurturing, giving energy. When you receive, you have more resources to give to others. Begin by noticing the hundreds of gifts you receive each day, whether it’s seeing beauty in nature, witnessing a touching human moment, or being hugged by a loved one. Simply say ‘Thank You’ for each gift, and know that they’re filling up your storehouse, keeping the Divine flow going strong.
Various Meanings of This Card: Be still and listen • Release guilt about receiving • Ask for help • Increase psychic awareness • Know that you’re in a learning cycle • Healing is occurring • Be more in your feminine energy •
About Hathor: This beloved Egyptian goddess is represented by the head of a cow to symbolize the sacred animal’s life-giving milk and mothering. Hathor is a benevolent sky and sun goddess who helps with all aspects of child conception, birthing, and raising. Call upon Hathor to guide you in nurturing yourself and your loved ones.
I loved this post from Free People's blog on "The Yin & Yang Of Summer Solstice" it's exactly what I was looking for in preparation I know you guys will love it as much as I do! Here is what to expect..
Today's equinox marks our transition into summer, and with it, a shift in energy. We move from spring, marked by a perfect balance between yin and yang, into summer, the season of yang. But what does this mean? By studying the characteristics of yang energy, we can understand what things to enjoy, what precautions to take, and how to keep it all in balance for the summer months ahead.
Yin and Yang Explained
In simple terms, yin and yang are the two energies present in everything. They are both opposite, but equal, and one cannot exist without the other. Over time, balance between the two ebbs and flows like a wave. The energy is never static, but rather shifting from one to the other, and existing together. Night moves into day, heat becomes cool, the puddles become dry, and seasons change from one to the next. Both yin and yang are marked by specific characteristics that can help you define when one is more present than the other, and also when they are in equal balance.
Yang in Summer
Yang energy is fiery and hot. It’s light over darkness, energetic and active. It is also characterized as dry. During summer months this manifests itself in long, hot days. Plants sprouted in spring are full of yang energy to finally bear fruit. As humans, we feel passionate and tend to be more interactive and social. Energy is at a high, and we stay out late to dance it off under the moon.
Opportunities to Seize
Take advantage of your added energy at this point in the year. It’s a great time to start new projects and enjoy being active. The aura around you is bright and joyous. Soak it up, share it around, and keep a little stowed away for when you’ll need it in the winter months.
Keeping Yang in Balance
Be careful not to let yang’s energy scorch you too much. Yang in excess will dry up your insides, and can make you prone to illness associated with heat such as headaches, dehydration, infections, fevers, and irritability. Try to bring yin energy into the situation to balance things out. Drink plenty of water or dive into a pool. Eat foods that have a coolness to them like mint, basil, and juicy fruits and vegetables. While it’s good to absorb that yang energy, pay attention to your body and make sure it isn’t getting overloaded with it. If things feel out of whack, pick a slow, more meditative yoga practice over running at high sun. The earth is also characterized by yin energy, and connecting yourself to it will help you feel balanced. Go barefoot, try your hand at gardening, or let your friends bury you in the sand.
As we experience solstice, get ready for all that is to come. As yang takes reign, welcome in the summer. We are about to enter into a beautiful time of year, full of enjoyment and happiness. Just remember to bring in yin so that you can experience it to its fullest. Happy summer solstice, everyone!
The year is half way through! Are you doing MORE or LESS? Never too late to change your priorities! Print this out and put it in your moodboard, by your bed, in your bathroom, on your fridge... somewhere you will see it everyday. If your having trouble doing these things, but see it on daily basis your subconsious will start to pick up on it!
