My beautiful daughter, Jade, and I were recently blessed to have shared a very special photoshoot together for the divine Kapri Couture. They designed and custom made matching pieces to specifically suit our aesthetic and the mermaid vibes we were after. It was so heart warming to share this journey with my sweet girl, to watch her be pampered in this way, and see her soul alight as she found her own creative expression. She is such a natural beauty, emanating love from deep within her soul. She is my teacher, my angel, and always brings me back to my heart when I need it most. My heart is filled with gratitude for the honour of being her mommy.

This was such a fun family shoot with Bobby (daddy) behind the lens and our dear son, Jacob, our little behind the scenes helper. He was such a sweetheart, taking care of his big sister.

I’m so grateful to Kapri Couture for organising all these pieces for us, so we could share this very special day together. These moments and captures will forever remind us of our bond and unconditional love for one another.

With 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

Thalassotherapy

September 11, 2014

Nothing beats getting off the plane and landing in warm sunny paradise to a relaxing spa day. Having travelled so much in my life and especially after having children, I plan the little details of my travel a lot more these days. I always leave a lot of space for spontaneity, though I’m so grateful to myself for the little plans I make well ahead of time….like this. Stepping off the plane and into the renowned Ayana aquatonic spa was the perfect post flight remedy. And a great way to really fast track yourself into an instant holiday vibe. I highly recommend it to those coming off long flights to Bali and really needing something to help kick the jet lag.

The water in the aquatonic pool is fed by the Indian ocean seawater, bringing with it all the healing properties of the ocean. Thalassotherapy actually means ‘Sea Healing.’ The warmth of the water and the hydro massage stations and jet streams, provide so many therapeutic benefits by boosting circulation and lymphatic drainage. I suggest lots of water afterwards to maintain good hydration, and give yourself the best cleansing start to your holiday…. and definitely head straight to your room for the most blissful sleep of your life!

Here are some pictures we took of our time in this incredible spa, our arrival to Ayana Resort and our amazing cliff front villa. The rest of the time we simply melted into a heavenly meditative state of bliss, rejuvenating our bodies and souls.

Enjoy!

Lots of love and gratitude,

Helen xx

Blessed Child

“The creative adult is the child who has survived” – Ursula K. Le Guin

I came across this quote this morning and instantly fell in love. The timing was of course perfect. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the social tenets of how one is supposed to look, dress and act at a certain age. I’m coming up to 38 this year and I know I don’t really look my age physically, but I think it’s more than that. I don’t act my age. More to the point, I don’t act in a way that adheres to the general social expectations of a 38 year old woman. I write my own life story, and in mine there is no age limit on how one can act, look, dress, be. I’m unconventional, imaginative, passionate, creative, naive, sensitive, vulnerable, open hearted and I will always believe in magic. I love spontaneity and I live in the present. And best of all, I’m at my happiest when I’m in my little vortex creating what I love with all my heart and soul. All the wonderful characteristics of a child.

When I look at my children they remind me of this ability we have to tap into our creative selves. To open the doorway to joy in an instant. Bless these sweet angels for reminding us of the true beauty of life.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

Delicate Strength

May 25, 2014

IMG_3244IMG_3164 IMG_3224IMG_3187IMG_3288IMG_3245 IMG_3197 IMG_3130 IMG_3168IMG_3188 IMG_3149IMG_3129 IMG_3174 IMG_3213IMG_3160IMG_3128IMG_3299 IMG_3205 IMG_3147IMG_3289IMG_3255IMG_3319IMG_3272

There is great strength, beauty and freedom in vulnerability. As we peel back the masks, embrace who we are, and share our authentic self, we enrich our experience of life, we deepen our connections, heighten our senses, and a natural unfolding of gratitude and love follow. Our beautiful delicate nature unveils our potential for growth, healing and happiness. 

It’s been forever since Mother’s Day and this post is seriously long overdue. It was such a beautiful day spent at our local beach of course hehe ;) It was a little crazy though, the sea was growling and super rough, and the sand was covered in seaweed. We set up this gorgeous lacy crochet throw from Losari home and woman and had some beautiful time soaking up the sunshine. It was a lovely, warm afternoon, and even though the beach looked like a bomb had gone off, it was absolutely so beautiful in all of it’s glorious mess. It reminded me how important it is to speak and honour our truth. No matter what that might be or how messy one might feel. To really allow ourselves to be vulnerable and share who we are. It felt as though mother earth was having an off day, but in actual fact she couldn’t have been more perfect and beautiful.

When we allow others to truly see who we are, to drop the masks we hide behind, to share our vulnerability, we open ourselves up for deeper connections with those we love. And we can live a more peaceful and free life. It takes some peeling back of the many layers that we create for ourselves and some inquiry into our thoughts and beliefs. And this can be painful at times too. And it can be exhilarating as well, especially in those moments when you realise your ability to choose your thoughts and beliefs and you release yourself from suffering.

Take some time to go within, listen to your thoughts, question them, look at their roots and the beliefs that house them. Imagine how good it feels when you don’t believe or think those painful thoughts. Choose to let them go, even if only for a minute, and feel the peace wash over you.  You no longer have to replay the hurt. You can choose a new story, one that makes you feel good, and replay that like your favourite record.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

In between the sparkling sea

and the fiery crimson sky

I fell into your love spell

And there was only you and I

 

This was undoubtedly the most magical sunset I’ve ever witnessed. The whole day leading up to it was magic. The cloud formations, the sparkling waters, the golden light. Love was in the air, everywhere we looked there were happy smiles, warm hearts and sneaky kisses. It was as though everyone lived within a bubble of love. I know we sure were ;) My husband and I started our afternoon date at the beach photographing this oufit, soaking up warm autumn sun rays, then we drove along the magnificent WA coast, with an early dinner at one of our fave beachside restaurants, followed by this awe inspiring, breath taking sunset. I couldn’t believe how much it changed from moment to moment. The intensity of colour, starting off so softly with pink, orange and purple and ending with the ocean and sky completely alight in a deep crimson red. I feel so blessed that we were able to experience this wonder. That our timing lined up so divinely with ease. Beyond grateful.

A few weeks ago…or maybe even a month now (WOW!) I had the pleasure of visiting the Hobo + Hatch pop up shop down south in the beautiful town Cowaramup, in the Margaret River wine region. The vibe and beauty of this town and shop was so relaxing…I didn’t want to leave! If you get the chance to stop by on your travels it’s a must! So many of my favourite labels like Rue Stiic + Arrow Divine all in the one place. And what a space it is! So perfectly decked out with peacock chairs, divine tapestries, worldly jewels and cow skulls. See pics below!! I was lucky enough to pick up one of their yakadiyak wool/cotton shawls and it’s been keeping me warm and cosy during this sudden seasonal shift right into winter! And not only are they divine, each purchase supports communities in Nepal. “By purchasing from our Yakadiyak range you’ve helped make a small difference in the lives of others. We will continue to donate our time & money to the Nepalese community that touched our hearts & forever changed our soul” – Leona, Hobo + Hatch. Nothing better than wearing conscious clothing. Feels soooo good in so many ways :))))

These photos featuring this beautiful scarf, were taken a couple of weeks ago when summer was still hanging around for one last party :) The golden light in the afternoon seems to intensify during this time of year. The sunsets are so brilliant and deep, just like the autumn leaves. It’s yet another magical time of year with so much beauty to be thankful for.

Divine Light

April 21, 2014

IMG_0261 IMG_0294IMG_0258IMG_0234IMG_0286IMG_0270IMG_6022 IMG_0275IMG_0288 IMG_0238IMG_6120 IMG_0229IMG_0235 IMG_0303IMG_0324 IMG_0319IMG_0328IMG_0306 IMG_0305

The divine light in me honours the divine light in you. Namaste

I’ve spent many days watching the changing light reflect off the ocean and sand like a divine mirror reflecting all that is. This time of year it has a particular iridescent sparkle, an opalescent glow, and serious magic about it. I’m drawn to it like no other. I crave to be near it, as it ignites my inner wisdom and replenishes my energy.

I’ve recently gone through some deep introspection and felt my heart expand further, and even deeper into love. As I’ve meditated upon the ocean tides and celebrated the moon phases, a greater understanding and love has been evolving within. An understanding of the divine tapestry of life. An acceptance of it’s flow. An unconditional love for myself, regardless of what my circumstances may be. I’ve shed many tears to come to this place and I foresee many more to come as I journey this path. Though ultimately as we accept and love ourselves for who we are, we experience a deeper and more joyous state within our being. Our lives are richer, fuller, our experiences and connections more authentic and real. The vibrational energy of love heals the wounds that once felt unforgivable, and lifts our experience to pure childlike joy. Our inherent nature is restored. As the love for myself grows, it is reflected in the unconditional acceptance and love I experience for every being. As my soul’s eye opens up to the divine light within, I begin to see it in all beings, and know that we are all reflections of divine light and love.

This outfit post was right up there with one of my favourites shoots. It was so effortless and fun. Childlike, playful, even a little cheeky. I was floating in the clouds, yet grounded to the core. I felt infinite, boundless, expansive. In love with life.

Sending infinite amounts of love and light to all you beautiful, magnificent, divine beings. I love you all.

Helen xx

February Love

February 27, 2014

IMG_6203 IMG_6221IMG_6202 IMG_6205IMG_6179 IMG_6255 IMG_6185IMG_6270IMG_6306 IMG_6213 It’s been the month of LOVE here in my house! As many of you can tell by now I love to celebrate all things LOVE all the time, though February is a particularly special month for us…firstly our relationship began on Valentine’s day of all days.  This was so random, and at that time in my life I didn’t actually celebrate it at all. How things have changed :) This was 10 years ago! We were also married on February 23rd here in Cottesloe, WA by the sunny beautiful beach :) We celebrated our wedding anniversary last weekend with a wine cruise along the Swan River (pics and post coming soon!!) Every February we love to celebrate pretty much the entire month as one big anniversary! It holds such special memories for us. I can still remember that Valentine’s day when we met at the cafe, I was so mesmerised by his eyes.I had completely overheated within moments of sitting down. As I sat there magnetically fixated on him, flushing, shaky, so nervous, I was also strangely comfortable with him at the same time, as though we had known each other many times before. I could not take my eyes of his. There was so much chemistry between us. The air was electric! I’ve been in love a few times in my life, but nothing has ever compared to that intensity I felt that day. He is my beloved, my soul mate, a kindred spirit, my dearest friend, father of my children and my lover for this life and many more I hope. I am so grateful that I get to spend every day of my life with him.

This Valentine’s day I had the chance to wear this stunning Ixiah dress from the new fall collection. Perfect date night dress. Paired with my Kivari clutch and some beautiful golden crystal jewels from Spark & Thistle and I was set. We had such a fun night taking photos, al fresco dining on a perfectly balmy summer evening, and later cosying up to a movie :)

Let’s all remember to celebrate the love we have, whether it’s with a partner, a child, a parent, a sister, a friend, a pet, the earth or ourselves. We are so lucky in life to experience love. And seriously there isn’t anything better than love. It really is all we need. Let it infuse into every cell of your being and melt away all that does not bring you joy.

So much love from my heart to yours xxxx
