LIVE, LOVE, SMILE, GIVE .•´ ♥ ☆ ♥ `•.¸.•´ ♥ º ☆.¸¸.•´Introducing  Tigerlily ‘s‘Bikini Trail’. Elegantly comfortable new season pieces which I’m going to wear all Summer long! We photographed them at my beautiful property on the Far North Coast of Australia. Always love an excuse to spend time in our secret garden, which is currently blooming with an abundance of organic mango flowers and mulberries. My favourites are the pictures where I’m enjoying the alkalising mineral rich spring waters at a ‘secret spot’ waterfall in the beautiful hinterland of Byron Bay. What a lovely day it is to be alive! ¸.•´ ♥ ☆ ♥ `•.¸.•´ ♥ º ☆.¸¸.•´¯¸.•´ ♥ ☆ ♥ `•.¸.•´ ♥ º☆.¸¸.•´¯I hope you enjoy taking a few moments to read the quotes I’ve placed within this post.

‘TODAY I CHOOSE LIFE.

‘I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU DON’T DERIVE A DEEP SENSE OF PURPOSE FROM WHAT YOU DO, IF YOU DON’T COME RADIANTLY ALIVE SEVERAL TIMES A DAY, IF YOU DON’T FEEL DEEPLY GRATEFUL AT THE TREMENDOUS GOOD FORTUNE THAT HAS BEEN BESTOWED ON YOU, THEN YOU ARE WASTING YOUR LIFE. AND LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO WASTE.’ SRIKUMAR RAO

‘START LIVING…NOW! STOP SAVING THE GOOD CHINA FOR THAT SPECIAL OCCASION. STOP WITHHOLDING YOUR LOVE UNTIL THAT SPECIAL PERSON MATERIALISES. EVERY DAY YOU ARE ALIVE IS A SPECIAL OCCASION. EVERY MINUTE, EVERY BREATH, IS A GIFT FROM GOD.’ ~ MARY MANIN MORRISSEY

“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love – for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment is it perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you from misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.” ~ MAX EHRMANN, DESIDERATA: A POEM FOR A WAY OF LIFE
