vanessaholden A dozen+ years in New York, the countless times we've been asked "So, do you think you'll ever move back to Australia?' and in the back of my mind I'm like "What makes you think we ever left?" #trueblue #coreofmyheart #opalhearted #bornfromrainbowserpents #AustraliansDayeveryday #MyAustralia 3w

vanessaholden Tonight I’m using RWAR lion energy to declare my intention and to invite you, and people like you, to join me and @chandeliercreative. The full Leo moon demands that we connect more passionately, that we DREAM BIG: what we put into motion now will have a great engine of energetic and highercentred fuel about it. So: WE ARE MAKING SOUL SAFARI to GATHER + MOBILIZE our global tribe and to build A NEW FUTURE for all of us - one that’s FULED BY CREATIVITY + POSITIVITY and the belief that we can make anything happen if WE WORK TOGETHER + CELEBRATE + ELEVATE each other. We want to connect the people we admire everywhere - THE CREATIVE, CURIOUS + ADVENTUROUS - and share their beautiful, powerful stories. I’m talking radical transformation. If you, too, want to #bethechange, sign up at www.soulsafari.com. And pls, tag anyone/ everyone who’s also ready to ROAR (🏼 @appetitefordecoration) #makeitbig #makeitbold #makeithappen 3w

vanessaholden Thanks @cntraveler for inviting me to hijack your account today. I've gathered together some of my “beyond the beach” soul spots - follow along today for the #opalhearted studios, workshops and galleries of some of my favorite Australian creatives. When Dorothea Mackellar described Australia as “the opal-hearted country”, she was describing the buried mineral treasures of the red center. But for me, this idea of opal-heartedness speaks to the vibrant, optimistic, independent spirit of the creative community of Australia who see beyond the horizon and imagine amazing things. This is a gem I unearthed on the pavement in a back laneway in Melbourne - truly, #myAustralia is bright sparks, big hearts and sunshine #SoulSafari 4w

vanessaholden It’s hard-wired in my DNA - the moment I wake up in January, I reach for my cossies and head out for a swim - even in frigid NYC (my hair’s still drying right now, post Hudson River walk momentary freeze). Of course I’d rather be swimming In Sydney - like this, I’d choose the ocean over the pool. There’s something about this diving-out-of-the-safe-place and into the deep water that’s so so Australian and so right for the first week of the year. It’s the spirit of the posts I’m planning for @cntraveler’s awesome All-Australia-All-The-Time instaJanuary (follow along and take a virtual swim every day - I am) - about vibrant, independent #opalhearted people doing big, beautiful things their own way. In the deep water. Just the way I like it. #opalhearted #youngandfree #islandlife #MyAustralia @petrinatinslay 1mon

vanessaholden 🏼🏼🏼 Best. President. Ever. 2016 - already extraordinary. I can't wait to see what's ahead. Repost from @sarahsophief . Is Important. Both Because We Need #guncontrolnow But Also Because We Need More Representations Of #Masculinity That Look Like This. This Is Beautiful, Strong & Powerful. "With tears streaming down his face, President Obama on Tuesday condemned the repeated spasms of gun violence across America as he announced new executive actions intended to reduce the number of mass shootings, suicides and killings that have become routine in the nation’s communities" - @nytimes #stayhuman #guncontrolnow #raisegirlsandboysthesameway #toxicmasculinity 1mon
