I’m so pleased to share with you all my feature on Happiness + Well Being magazine. A digital magazine dedicated to bringing holistic wisdom, nourishment and love to their readers. The magazine is filled with priceless and practical tools to remind you each and every day of just how amazing and beautiful you are. It has 100 pages filled with loving intentions, devoted to inspiring you to cultivate a life of love.

Here’s a little snipper from my interview with H + W.

H+W: What advice would you have for anyone struggling to love and accept themselves?

Helen: Be easy on yourself. We are all perfectly imperfect and our unique qualities are what make us all so beautiful. Embrace the beauty that you are. Please know you are enough just as you are. You have always been enough. You are more than enough. You can let go, trust and enjoy who you are and your life.

I am beyond honoured and grateful to the lovely Happiness + Well Being mag for taking the time to interview me. It’s been an absolute pleasure from beginning to end, and the process of answering their heart provoking questions has been an opportunity for me to reflect on my life, and how grateful I am for all that I’ve experienced.

For the very small price of $2.99 (cost of a cup of coffee), you will gain an abundance of positive information and reinforcement, that will lead you on a path overflowing with joy, peace and love.

“Magic is everywhere you look once you can see it within yourself. We are all magic”

I felt like reminding myself today of the magic that exists within us all. I hope these simple words resonate with some of you and remind you of the unique beauty that you are.

Here is a collection of photos taken one beautiful morning styling some divine handmade gems from At Thursday. I love to adorn myself in precious healing talismans from the earth – opals, turquoise and rainbow moonstone, all set in the most beautifully crafted silver. They serve as little reminders that we are all magical. If you are not feeling it today, take some time to quiet your mind, access one of your favourite memories of nature, where there was no doubt in your mind that magic exists – a rainbow, a sunset, a waterfall, a crystal cave or thunderstorm perhaps. One of those moments where the energy is palpable, and your body zings with such heightened glee. You are content to simply watch in awe as mother nature performs her miracles. This is you. What you see is a mirror of all your own beauty. Give yourself a big hug and a moment of complete and utter loving acceptance and feel the magic that you are.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx


Aura of Light

February 23, 2015

“The more you consistently choose loving, appreciative thoughts, the more your aura radiates out that energy of love and appreciation. Then, you truly uplift – what you focus upon shines and your mere presence illuminates.” Karen Whitaker

I’m feeling so very thankful today for the beautiful life I have to live. That each day I get to live my dreams and create something beautiful. Each breath I take is filled with love, filled with gratitude, for the amazing souls that I get to share this life with. My children, my beloved husband, my dear friends and my beautiful soul family following and sharing in my journey here on my blog. Each day I am uplifted by the love I feel for you all. I’m bursting with passion at the mere thought of the immense creative possibilities that await me.

I’d love to hear what fills your heart with love…what are you all grateful for today?

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

She floats in a dreamy sea swirl of blue

Kissed by the ocean mist

Lulled by her sweet tune

So freely singing her melody into forever

I was lucky enough to shoot this summery holiday look at the beautiful Villa Seriska Rosita residence in Bali. My backdrop was this exquisite infinity pool and the ocean and sky for miles. Blue upon blue upon blue. It’s the colour of my dreams. It’s healing and calming and reminds me of an endless summer of love. Adorned in bright silver with touches of magical turquoise by Nicole Fendel Jewellery, which is proving to be one of my favourites amongst my growing collection. Paired with this super playful and cute playsuit from Sea Dreamer, it took this look from bohochic to boholuxe. This has definitely become my happy outfit and one I’m wearing over and over again this summer.

Sending you some cool calming, blue healing, love vibes wherever you are in the world today.

So much love and gratitude,

Helen xx

Location – Villa Seriska Sanur, Bali, Indonesia

Bali has to be one of my top favourite places to holiday. It’s not just the fact that it’s an island paradise with beautiful beaches, sunsets, tropical foods and scents, it’s the service and smiles that come with it that make it the holiday of a lifetime. Our recent family adventures took us first to Sanur and then to the magical Klungkung. I’m so happy to have explored different parts of Bali, both so very beautiful and unique in their own right. We stayed at 2 magnificent villas run by Villa Seriska, and I now understand why they have been voted Number #1 on Trip Advisor and won the Certificate of Excellence in 2013 and 2014. The villas, the details, the luxury, and above all the hospitality and services were faultless. As a couple of hard working parents in great need of some pampering and relaxation, we certainly received more than we could have expected. And all with a smile and gratitude.

We have been blessed to have experienced our fair share of luxury holidays around the world, but Bali always seems to come out on top. It’s all in the details. At Villa Seriska we had our own personal chef to cook us whatever we liked, catering to our own special needs and dietary requirements. A driver to take us anywhere we fancied, though we didn’t feel like leaving at all, as it was just too beautiful in our villa :) We had a wonderful manager to attend to any needs that arose…and travelling with children there are usually quite a few ;) It surely helps to make a holiday with your kids an actual holiday when you have so much help. Our lovely housekeepers were so wonderful with the children and even offered to help us with babysitting when we needed. My children fell in love with them and couldn’t wait to see them each day. They were so happy, and so were we. My wonderful husband, Bobby and I, had time to really connect. Beach walks, watching the sunset whilst talking about our dreams and aspirations and sweet kisses under the gazebo. It was all so very magical.

Since I have so many beautiful pictures from our family vacation I’d love to share, I’m going to firstly share with you our experiences in Sanur, and in my next post you’ll get to see a whole other side of beautiful Bali. Sanur is seriously the perfect place to stay in Bali if you want a little luxury, beach, shopping and dining without it being too crowded. It is so much quieter than Kuta (in the best possible way) though there is still so much to do right at your doorstep. Upon stepping out of our villa we had restaurants, bars, boutiques, beach markets and of course the beach with a spectacular view of Lembongan Island and Mt. Agung. Our 4 bedroom villa, perfect for families and groups of friends, was decked out in all kinds of detailed design perfection. Everywhere I looked I was amazed by something beautiful. The woodwork, the towel designs, the flowers, the bathrooms….it was all so divine. The gazebo, spa and pool area were definitely the best and thoroughly utilised by us all each day and night. My children were obsessed with feeding the koi fish, cannon balling off the gazebo into the pool, and the chef’s amazing food!

We can’t thank owners Audrey and Nilesh, and the beautiful staff of Villa Seriska enough for their generous hospitality and very genuine caring. It’s so refreshing and an absolute joy to stay somewhere like this. They really set themselves apart by their high standards.

I hope you enjoy these photos of our holiday and be sure to check out Villa Seriska Sanur Satu  for your next Bali holiday.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

“She loves life and it loves her back” 

I’ve been asked a lot recently from many of you amazing souls following and sharing in my journey about how I found a life of love. I want to share a little of my journey with you all in the hopes that I can inspire you to rediscover your beauty and the shining light of love that you all are.

Firstly, I think that we generally only start to question what is going on when things are not so great. It is these low experiences in our lives that act as the catalysts for transformation. I look back now with pure gratitude for the pain and traumas I have been through in my life. I would not have strived for a life of love without them.

My real low was around 7 years ago, when I experienced complications with my second pregnancy. It all began one night, around 11 weeks in, when I woke up haemorrhaging. I started having contractions, went into shock, and realised that I was losing my child. I was rushed to hospital to discover my little boy was still alive. For the next 27 weeks of my pregnancy I was in and out of hospital, the doctors continuously trying to prevent an early labour. I had to learn to cope with the imminent threat of losing him with no certainty or assurances. I was told the odds were not in my favour, and to prepare myself for the most painful of possibilities. That one hope, that I might make it to term, however dim it was back then, was the light that helped me get through. The painful thoughts of ‘what if’ were so excruciating while I felt my little boy kicking around in my belly. I inevitably pulled myself inwards and focused intently on the beauty of each moment we had together and that he would be ok. I could no longer focus on my painful feelings and give rise to them as they didn’t serve any other purpose than to cause me immense suffering. They weren’t real in that moment, they were just possibilities of an unknown future. I decided (stubbornly) we were going to get through it and that I would endeavour to enjoy the beautiful connection between mother and child regardless of the physical pain I was in. We would make this journey together and hope for the best. These thoughts brought me peace and the ability to find some joy in a pregnancy full of complication. I don’t think any other life experience has taught me more about mind control than this. Living with this for 27 weeks, bed bound each day, bleeding and contracting, reminded how fragile this situation was, yet striving for strength by surrendering to the vulnerability and uncertainty, whilst trying to maintain a positive outlook, was the biggest challenge of my life. I’m happy to say we made it in the end. We managed against medical odds to get to 38 weeks and my beautiful son is now 6 years old.

This experience changed me in many ways. My ability to let go of stressful ‘what if’ thoughts is much easier. I can focus on the beauty of life amidst chaos, and I discovered that the more you focus on the good stuff, and not the bad stuff, the more the bad stuff will actually lose it’s power and start to disappear from your life. Whatever you spend your time thinking about will become your life. So think beautiful thoughts, kind thoughts, grateful thoughts, loving thoughts, joyful thoughts. And when life throws you a curveball, I hope that you can remember at some point to be easy on yourself, and find that light and love within that allows you to move through it with grace and ease.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

Some days I love nothing more than a simple white maxi and a few crystal jewels, bare feet in the sand, salt on my skin and to dance upon the sand as the ocean rolls in and kisses the shore over and over again. It sets my spirit soaring and evokes that mermaid vibe I love so much.

This beautiful afternoon I had the pleasure of wearing some gorgeous designs, made with love and passion, from the divine Her Empire boutique. A magical, bohemian inspired one stop shop perfect for the travelling gypsies, the magic makers, the wild dreamers and all those who seek something unique and inspiring. Beautiful owner, Aly, draws together passionate creative designers to bring forth a stunning collection of designs for all the bohemian babes wanting something that you just can’t find in your shopping mall. It’s so refreshing to discover so many interesting designs that spark my creative fire and allow me to style, play and create magic. I hope you guys find some magical pieces too that remind you of how amazing and wonderful you all truly are.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

You guys asked and here it is….my hair, skin and nails post and how I create my look. I’ve been obsessed with beachy blonde boho hair, tanned skin and white nails for as long as I can remember. It’s a style that just screams summer holidays to me and makes my everyday feel like a holiday…even when I’m running errands and taking care of my 2 kids.

Starting with HAIR. My amazing hairdresser, Charlie, from The Nest Hair Boutique, creates my blonde locks and keeps them healthy each time we lighten them using Olaplex treatments and the amazing Davines Melu range of hair products. The Melu serum is probably the best hair product I’ve ever used. Any slight frizz or dryness and this glides on smoothly without weighing my hair down or making it feel oily. I love this product more than any other hair serum I’ve ever used. Hands down the BEST!

To add volume and extra length Charlie uses BLAKK Tape Extensions which fit in so naturally and seamlessly with my hair that they are hardly noticeable. They are also so lightweight, easy to manage and create more of that mermaid look I’m obsessed with ;)

I style my hair using either my GHD (great for mermaid waves) or my Babyliss from The Nest Hair Boutique (perfect for voluminous curls). Once I’m done curling my hair, I rub a tiny amount of the serum through my hair to finish the style. Too easy. Read more from a recent post about this wonderful boutique salon that has brought health and vitality back to my hair and happiness to my heart.

Ok now for my SKIN secrets. I get a lot of comments about my skin. From my tan to the glow of my skin. I must say that dry skin brushing and a hydrating diet (water, lots of alkaline foods, veggies, fruit) go a long way to keeping my skin glowing and healthy. Apart from that I do have some little tricks I use to enhance my skin’s glow. I’m obsessed with exfoliation and then lathering on body lotions. Lately it’s been even easier with this amazing smoothing body oil mist. Spray and you are done. So perfect for dry skin after consecutive days spent in the salty ocean.

As for my tan, firstly I don’t spend hours baking in the sun to achieve a tan. I tan very easily from simply living a healthy outdoors lifestyle, where I spend small amounts of time in the sun at the beach each day.  To enhance my colour I use J Bronze self tanning mousse, as I have found this has the most natural colour of all the self tanners I’ve tried. It also goes on so effortlessly once you have exfoliated and keeps my colour just how I like it. I start with the medium early in summer and then switch to the dark as my tan darkens. When I have events and photoshoots, I use the J Bronze Illuminiser to add a golden glow to my skin. I am quite obsessed with this shimmer. It makes my skin look completely flawless. It also adds more bronze, darkening the colour. I feel completely transformed into a sun kissed goddess when I wear this. For my face I use the J Bronze Flawless Face tan. It’s gentle and doesn’t increase the colour dramatically, so I feel very confident using it. I’m still working on improving my facial routine and make up ritual so these details will be in another post once I’ve finished testing out new products.

And lastly my NAILS. I’ve finally moved away from the days of constant shellac and acrylic appointments and let my nails grow naturally now. They break every now and then, and they are often different lengths, but when I get spare time (amidst being a busy mum and blogger!) I give myself mini manicures at home as a little pampering treat. I’ve also recently made the switch to an eco friendly, vegan nail polish brand called Willow Byron Bay. I wasn’t sure at first whether the colour would last or how the quality would be, but after many months of use I’m absolutely converted and hooked on how much better these polishes are than the regular brands I used to use. And NO NASTIES! I don’t wear anything else anymore. Their white (winter) is the best. I simply can’t get enough :) The soy based nail polish remover is amazing too. It leaves your nails feeling moisturised instead of stripped and smells like lemon myrtle. You won’t smell that nasty chemical smell you normally get when you open up a bottle of this nail polish remover. TIP – Let this sit on your nails for a minute before trying to rub off otherwise you will need a little bit of elbow grease ;)  I also highly recommend using the base and top coat when applying these polishes. Though not necessary, it will make your colour last longer. When I’m not being lazy and I do the whole lot, I manage almost a week with my colour in tact. Doing crazy busy mum stuff each day, that is quite the miracle ;)

Hope this post has been helpful in some way. And you guys find some products that you love as much as I do. I find taking care of the little things, like my hair, skin and nails, is a good way of showing myself a little love and nurturing.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
