Some time ago, I happily stumbled across the beautiful Buddhist virtue of MUDITA — and let me tell you, today is a mudita kinda day.
Defined loosely, mudita means: ‘vicarious joy’ or ‘delighting in the happiness, good fortune and success of others,’ and hand-on-heart, I don’t think I could be more delighted to share the news that my soul sister Mel Ambrosini has LAUNCHED.

Today’s post is a special one because I’m celebrating a huge milestone in the life of one of my closest friends, Tara Bliss — the release of her debut book High: A Party Girl’s Guide to Peace.
Over the past two years, I’ve been in what I consider a privileged position of watching along intently, with equal parts awe and excitement, as this beautiful woman has devoted herself to writing this book.

I have a total, raving lady crush on Elenore Bendel Zahn, and I have a feeling you will too after taking this journey into her green-hued world o’ wonder.
I can honestly say I have never met anyone quite like this woman. Her unmistakable warmth not only radiates through the screen – it reaches out, pulls you in and holds you tight in an embrace like no other.

I stumbled across Gala Darling’s love-filled corner of the web way back in the early days of her blog, and from those first few clicks, I was enchanted. I’d discovered a pink-haired beacon of positivity – vibrant, bold, delightfully unapologetic – and as a newbie to blogs, I credit her with opening me up to a whole ‘nother world of wonder.
An afternoon spent trawling through Gala’s site was akin to falling down a rabbit hole. Her equal love of the smart, the inspired and the whimsical was addictive way back then, and the signature get-out-there-and-go-big-dammit! vibe of her work continues to empower thousands of women around the globe today.

I sent Sarah Von Bargen the interview questions below and in the time it took me to reply to a couple of emails and check Facebook (once), her answers had already fluttered back into my inbox.
The girl can write. With mega-speed… and aplomb. Which is exceptionally handy, considering she is, in her words, a copywriter/blogger-for-hire/internet awesome-i-fier and prolific blogger at the successful lifestyle and travel blog Yes and Yes. Heads up: she sends brilliant newsletters with killer advice (I have a bunch tucked into a ‘Action this Rach!’ file).
