Make A Wish

August 5, 2014

That moment when the sun goes to sleep and the moon begins it’s rise…..that seems to linger on and holds that special kind of magic….where all dreams feel possible….those are the moments to count your blessings and make your wishes.

Every time I am lucky enough to witness the sun rise or set, I take a moment to give thanks, and to make a special wish. I figure if I’m lucky enough to be here, witnessing this glory, then I pretty much have all I need, then it’s time to wish for something amazing for all the beautiful souls of this earth. There is something so powerful about a prayer that comes from a place of fullness, of gratitude, of abundance. Next time you are lucky enough to witness nature’s beauty, take a moment to fill yourself with love, and then send that love out to all those who need it most. You will be overflowing with love and others will feel the blessing you have bestowed upon them.

This sunset really was extra special. There was that iridescent light again at the beach. The kind that seems to come right before each full moon. The sand glows and the water flashes it’s vibrant turquoise colour. I made lots of loving wishes on this day. And I’m sure all my beautiful Dogeared charms brought even more good luck vibes to my wishes.

Make a wish, or 2, or 100….take some time for ritual in your life, and share your love and light with the world.  Every little bit of loving helps to heal our world.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

Days spent immersed in creating art, drawing, styling, writing, playing my guitar, drumming, walking barefoot on the beach, swimming naked in the ocean, dreaming, exploring, falling in love, morning cuddles, dancing under the moonlit sky…..these are just a few of my favourite things in this amazing life. So grateful.


I love taking time each day to reflect upon all that I love and all that the moment has to offer us.


With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

Sailing the boat of silver light, 

The moon-beauty is fast approaching me

The sky is vibrating with sweet and melodious songs

The birds are flying beyond the horizon

To an unknown land.

All my hopes are flying without any destination.

Slowly my life’s evening sets in

Sri Chinmoy 


These images were taken a couple of weeks ago now, during a late afternoon stroll along the beach with my beloved husband before our dinner date that evening. The silvery light was fading ever so quickly, the way it does as we move deeper into fall. The reflections of light, the crisp air, the roaring sea….it all stirred at the beginnings of winter.

The evening called for my favourite Sea Dreamer romper. The perfect trans-seasonal piece and so great for layering. I had the chance to wear some divine bright silver jewels from Anna Beck and Dogeared Jewelry. I must say I really love that contrast of black and bright silver. It added a touch of glamour to my bohemian look, and was perfect for me to take out from the beach to a special dinner date with my husband. A little St. Eve Jewelry gypsy belt to jingle my way through the night, and I was set. We had such a beautiful evening together. Always such precious times that revive us as parents, partners, lovers and friends.

This post is dedicated to my husband, Bobby, the man who so willingly gives so much of his time and energy to help create this blog of mine. He is my amazing and talented photographer, the beautiful man who captures my essence and brings it to life, so I may share this with you all. He does all of this so humbly, never asking for credit or anything in return. He knows how happy it makes me and how much I love styling. What a wonderful man he is. I am so blessed.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

LIVE by the SUN, LOVE by the MOON ☽

LIVE by the SUN, LOVE by the MOON…..these words are so appropriate for me right now. I’m living and loving life to the fullest, flowing with the rhythms, feeling the interconnectedness… and ever grateful for all that I have. My beautiful family, the incredible opportunities and experiences that continue to flow into my life, to have time to feed my soul and express my creativity. I feel a gratitude list coming….haha! It may be the cooler weather, or that so much change is upon me, but I feel so grateful for this new phase of my life, this transitional time that I’m in right now. I see myself a little like a caterpillar creating my cocoon once again, weaving it with love to protect and nurture myself, as I gear up to transform and take flight. It’s going to be a big year, I can feel it in my bones. It actually already is a BIG year! My blogging journey has become a full time career in a matter of months. I’m absolutely loving it all so much, though with something so big and new in my life, whilst juggling being a mother, healer and wife at the same time, it’s so important for me to remain mindful to move along at my own pace. This way I won’t crash, and I will continue to love all the amazing experiences I am so blessed to enjoy in this life. The beautiful synergy and balance of the sun and moon are a constant reminder to me to choose a healing pace in life and walk to the beat of the great mother.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
