We all need a tribe, a gang, a network, a possie, a gathering and inspiration of women. Last October a group of women retreated together and it birthed the most amazing community of creative women called the inspire collective.
MAXIMUS & LIBERTY
Amanda is the co-founder of Maximus & Liberty. It is a not for profit surf brand that exists to support youth surfing projects around the globe.
Kinwomen is a network, not an organisation or a business, just a gathering of women who want to do life well and be able to claim honestly, ‘no regrets’. The network is women only – bringing together women of all ages, cultures, education, abilities and passions to share life and wisdom.
SECRETS IN THE BAY

Not Good Enough
Unsure of Purpose
Across my life, there is something quite implausible that I have been searching for. I’m not motivated by money, I have always been content with much and also with little. Maybe it was the way my Mum raised us, whenever there was a need she went about and solved the answer? Maybe it has been[…]
Tuesday morning came quicker than I expected this week. As I got my little boy ready for school, I was delicately dancing around the subject of ballet with my two-year-old. Shall we go to dancing today? I already knew the answer, but I was opening up the conversation to give her the opportunity to talk.[…]
It was a cold Autumn morning, much like the weather today here in Perth, WA. I had a little newborn baby and a story that made my throat tighten. I sat in our little apartment by the sea and my heart heaved with grief from letting go of the season that had just passed. My[…]
We are our greatest critics. Our voice, our unique is often squashed under the unmet expectations of should. How often do you roll your eyes internally about yourself?

What I can do is offer myself, wholehearted and present, to walk with the people I love through the fear and mess. That’s all any of us can do. That’s what we’re here for. Shauna Niquest This weekend a hundred and fifty women are retreating together in the South West of Western Australia. We put[…]
Last night as the sun faded and the moon swayed, we walked into a rose clad cinema and picked up our flute of champagne. Dancers waltzed through popcorn and strawberries were served with chocolate on sticks. We watched the Perth premiere of disney’s latest film release of Beauty and the Beast and it was worth[…]
February rocked me like I’m not sure anything has before. Moments, memories and reminders of the past came knocking and I stood there at the door completely surprised by their arrival. I didn’t realise becoming a full-time School Mum, would require so much emotion and intention. I kind of expected a quick transition, lots of[…]
TEN WAYS TO BE LESS SERIOUS AND HAVE MORE FUN My friend Tracy makes me smile even when she is not with me. I think about her and my happy increases. Last night she navigated the traffic, left a sick little in the care of her Dad and came over to my house for dinner.[…]
