Ah, the magic of the sunshine can make the world seem so much better. It is important to stay nice and cool in the heat and that is why we say don’t be short on shorts this summer. Let it never be said that us hippy types don’t like to show our legs off. Ok so not all of us but, wearing a nice cool pair of hippy shorts really helps!
My pegs only really get out in the open during the summer time and I can tell you it’s quite a shock for most people who have to deal with it. Bright white and sun declined, they are after all a lovely shade of British White. A colour I feel many of us share… Let’s face it though, it doesn’t really matter how white or what shape your legs are – if it’s hot they need to get out of those stuffy trousers and into something a little more comfortable.

Here at Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing we adore patchwork hippy clothing and so, we will tell you just why we go potty for patchwork trousers. Firstly there are no limits to the designs that you can have. As most of you well know, us hippy’s embrace uniqueness and love clothing that helps us to show our individuality. Not to mention that patchwork trousers are so much fun to wear! Splashes of colour, doesn’t matter if they clash and opposing designs. Hippy heaven right?!
The sun is shining and with the best will in the world, some of us are going to get sunburn. Its got to be said us hippies love the sunshine, whether its to relax at your favourite festival, sit and read a book in the garden or find a beautiful spot for a walk we love being outside and that means we’re going to catch the sun at some point. Of course wearing some top hippie clothing to cover up as well as some sunscreen is going to help. But what if you didn’t cover up in time and caught the sun?
It happens to us all and so, this is why we thought we would share with you our top 10 home remedies for treating sunburn. Sunburn can happen extremely quickly so please, make sure that you take the necessary precautions and use plenty of sunscreen. Apply it regularly and wear a sun hat. Lots of people think that you don’t get a tan when wearing lotion however that is poop. You can still tan. I wear factor 30 and then drop to 15 and still get a nice healthy glow. LOVE the summer!
Aaah festival season, our favourite time of the year. The season is fast approaching and it is time to start putting your festival survival gear together. Time to book the tickets and make preparations. What with so many festivals around the UK and around the globe, it can be hard to choose which to go to.

Here is where we will tell you how the term hippy came about and what it meant in the 60’s. Also, what it means in today’s society. Much has changed! Continue reading Hippie History
Ooh yes – it is true – Spring has indeed sprung. Ah so it’s that time of the year again when the flowers are blooming, the days are getting longer and there are baby animals everywhere. It is not spring unless you have seen some cute baby lambs about! You would of course have to pass them on the road side as I don’t think lambs have a habit of popping out and about the town! Not that I have seen anyways….
Hippy clothing fashion is a huge thing these days. Not just a craze but a way of being. A way of life in fact for many of us. As with many fashion styles it would seem that the wonderfully colourful and unique styles of the 1960’s hippy movement have again come full circle. Everything makes a comeback eventually.
We go nuts for hippy dresses here at Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing – well I do because I wear them but Sy, perhaps not so much. Don’t get me wrong he likes them but just doesn’t wear them as often as I do 😉
When people think of hippies they often think of women first and foremost. When that image of a hippy chick comes into their heads, what are they usually wearing? More often than not it is a beautiful long and flowing dress. Bright in colour and bold in pattern, what’s not to love!
The freedom of wearing a dress is amazing and then when you can find one that is comfortable. Ours are funky and pretty too so what more can you ask for?! Oh yes, wonderful quality and great prices!
It has to be said that us hippy types do love preparing our own homemade natural remedies. There is nothing quite like growing your own herbs and then using them to create something that has healing, cleaning or soothing power. Its what we did in the past and so it’s great to be able to go back to grass roots and get really hippy about it.
Well, who knew that there were so many ways in which to make and prepare your hippy herbal remedies. When I first started looking into herbal remedies and concoctions, in my naivety I assumed that there would be one or 2. But oh no, there are so many!
In this article I will list a just few of them as there really are quite a few. In a couple of weeks we will give you wonderful folks some recipes that you can try on your very own. Once you start making your own remedies, it is really hard to stop as they are a great help. They easing aches, pains and are brilliant for re-invigoration . Give them a try!

It is well known that hippy’s love all things nature and love to find ways to help sustain the health of the earth – There are many ways in which we can help and one of my absolute favourites is beekeeping.
Many people don’t actually realise just how important honey bees are and why we really really need to do all we can to help the species survive. The main thing that the little beauties do to help us meagre humans survive in this world is pollination.
