Despite the fact that I am a complete and utter tech junkie and I love so much about our modern world - (yes, there is a lot that I DON’T like as well… but keep up people… this is a happy hippy post), I have often considered the fact that I might have been born in the wrong era.

I have an insatiable love for anything 60’s!

Fashion, make-up, accessories, music, décor, lifestyle…all of it!

Perhaps it’s because that era was (to me anyway), like complete eye candy! Everything looked so “RAD”. Colours were vibrant, people looked funky, and everything resonated happiness, like a multi coloured lollipop!

We will NOT delve into the “not so cool” aspects in this post ok negative Nancy’s… There was just something unquestionably AWESOME about the 60’s… I mean…they had ELVIS!

Could I have been a hippie? Absolutely!! Ha-ha! Would I have participated in all the “recreational activities that hippies engaged in? FOR SURE! – I did it in my time anyway he he! (Thankfully that is a road I have now crossed…)

The sixties just looked like so much fun! I also want to stand on a roof top in my bell bottoms and daisy laced hair, singing “all you need is love” – because, let’s be honest… all you really DO need, is LOVE!

So here I sit - in the 21st century, perhaps minus the bell bottoms but definitely not without the happy spirit, excessive array of colour (everywhere) and juuuuust a few gadgets to boot…he he!

Definitely a tech happy hippie!

Which other era would you have liked to have lived in?

I was born at the very start of the 60's and love the music of that era, not sure I was ever a hippy was a little young for it but I think still till today I may not dress like one but I think at heart I am a hippy

Nice! Man I traveled deep within i guess what you could call a hippie circuit for a very long time. A lot of beautiful things happen in this type of environment.
