Our May ‘Live in your Magic’ Artist is the fantastic and ever whimsical @maimagi who is a Danish artist and creator with a focus on slow fashion and slow living.

Not only do I love her creations and gorgeous photography, but the approach to how she makes them and the way she lives her life is both inspiring and meaningful. I believe that if we all incorporate just a bit of this practice into our lives, we will find even more gratitude and abundance. 

This is the exact reason I wanted to collaborate with her on this project. When I asked what 'Living in your Magic' meant to her, Mai said: 

"I chose the handle 'magi' online because it means 'magic' in Danish. For me, daily magic is just as important as big, life changing magic. Savoring the familiar, appreciating the mundane. Slow living is slow consumption, of everything."

I love the Video she created for us that highlights these small yet impactful moments in our everyday lives. From taking a moment outside to Breathe fresh air, Leaning into creativity, Nourishing yourself by spending time in the garden, and connecting with one's you love... It's those little moments that bring it all together. 

What if we stopped rushing to the next thing and started embracing the small moments just as much as we do the big ones? Savoring the familiar and appreciating the mundane. It’s those little moments that can make you feel most grounded and recharged.

There is so much magic in slowing down, taking joy in the space that we’re in rather than where we want to go. It’s a principle I’m actively trying to incorporate into my life and business. Life is to be enjoyed not rushed through.. right?

For this partnership I created two custom rings for Mai for use in her video about how she 'Lives in her magic', but also to incorporate into her long-time fashion project "Fae of the Future" for the WGT Festival in Berlin (featured in the photos below).

More about the 'Slow Living' Movement:

"Slow living is a mindset whereby you curate a more meaningful and conscious lifestyle that’s in line with what you value most in life.

It means doing everything at the right speed. Instead of striving to do things faster, the slow movement focuses on doing things better. Often, that means slowing down, doing less, and prioritizing spending the right amount of time on the things that matter most to you.

By slowing down and intentionally placing your true values at the heart of your lifestyle, a slow living mindset encourages you to live in self-awareness and make conscious, purposeful decisions for the benefit of your well-being and that of the planet." -  slowlivingldn.com
