Hey there!

My name is Lana Rosales (short for Helana), and I’m an adventure loving, rooibos tea drinking writer / photographer. I started this blog to share simple, salt of the earth inspiration, real-life wisdom, healing / self-care practices, and travel exploits.

I believe that we’re all free creatures, and that our true nature is to be wild at heart. If you’re not there yet, you’re in the right place. Everything here is thoughtfully curated to lead you back to your own Self—probably the biggest adventure of all.

What you’ll find here

This isn’t a place for china dolls. It’s a place for real-life human beings—the ones who make mistakes more than they’d like to admit, the messy hair folk who are still rolling out of bed late on a Thursday morning, and for the free-spirits with bills to pay.

You can head over to the blog, or browse for something more specific: Healing & self-care |Inspiration |Real life wisdom |Travel adventures. You can also check out my free video workshop.
