This was such a fun outfit to create and wear on this free loving afternoon at the beach. Wind in my hair, jewels jingling with each step as I danced my little dance across the beach in complete gypsy style. This festival inspired look paired some of my all time favourites together – silk road tribal jewellery, spell lace via turquoise lane + the fifth element life mandala rings. This lace top is by far one of my most treasured wardrobe pieces right now. I can’t get enough if it, and such a versatile piece to style in so many different ways. Perfect with denim cut offs, maxi skirt or wear it open as a lovely light layer for those cooler summer evenings. Ahhhh summer nights…making the most of them while they are still here and drinking it all in.

I’m feeling the very slight shift here in Perth as we move into the cooler months and officially welcome the beginning of Autumn. The mornings are fresh with bright sunny days, and cooler evenings. This is probably my favourite time of year. It’s still so warm, yet the nights are bearable for sleeping without the AC running non stop.

I’m definitely not ready to be swapping my cut off denim shorts for longer threads just yet. But this slight shift does have me excited and thinking about autumn and winter fashion. I’m obsessed with denim and all those gorgeous shades of blue. Lots of texture, heavier fabrics, knits and leather.

This particular outfit I really really love. I love this ASbyDF cami, made from the softest, silkiest suede imaginable, + stunning knit in the freshest blues, paired with my favourite style denim cut offs + bright silver and crystal to amplify the clarity and fresh vibes I love. I’ve come back to this outfit over and over again because of it’s pure comfort and the holiday vibes it evokes in me. Perfect for the cooler weather too with some skinny denim and boots.

If you are in the mood for a wardrobe update with the season change, make sure to check out Shopbop’s awesome online sale starting today until Saturday (US). Use discount code BIGEVENT15 at checkout. It’s one of my favourite places for online shopping. Amazing range, fast shipping and easy returns.

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.

You can purchase and read my interview here.

My family and I spent a playful afternoon recently exploring a new little beach along the WA coastline. It was so lovely and quiet, the breeze ever so gentle, waves repeatedly kissing the shoreline with such grace. I watched my kids playing in the waves, I felt their joy, and all my daily stress melted into oblivion. We snapped some photos as I walked along the long stretch of beach, dressed head to toe in my favourite Hendrix + Harlow. I was filled to the brim, overflowing with joy, radiating from my being. Caught in a bubble, time escaped me, there was just my beloved family and I and the ocean. Of all our beach encounters, this one was like a dream I didn’t want to wake up from.

Sending so much love and joy to you all today.

With love and gratitude,

“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,

I’m so excited to share part 2 from my recent Bali adventures with the family. Our stay at Villa Rosita, on the magical Tegal Besar beach was beyond 5 star luxury. From the moment you enter this serene villa you are swept away by it’s pure magnificence. It’s beautifully designed with natural stone, bamboo, teak and rattan and well appointed, high end amenities, making this 5 bedroom residence the perfect place to host your special occasions with your loved ones. Villa Rosita is so ideal for an intimate wedding, engagement party, special birthday party, or for those wanting to escape to the most dreamy location possible, and have everything they need to completely unwind at their fingertips.

We spent our days perched on either the balcony, or outdoor couches under the gazebo, overlooking the ocean, feeling the mist of the ocean cool us down and the power of the waves crashing on the shore. It was both the most exhilarating and relaxing place I’ve ever stayed. Whilst sipping a cocktail or two, we listened to some amazing tunes streamed through their state of the art entertainment system. Such an awesome range of music :)

Just a stone’s throw away from the villa you’ll find Bali Safari, Komune beach club and world class surfing. Though we couldn’t bare to leave this paradise and it’s absolute serenity. We were lulled into a meditative trance by the beautiful rhythm of the waves, as we spent so many precious moments with our children enjoying the spa and infinity pool. Bobby and I shared some beautiful, romantic sunset walks along the beach entranced by it’s charm. Nature lovers will particularly love the volcanic black sand. It shines like diamonds in the sunshine and the contrast of white wash over the shimmering black sand was a sight that left me speechless. I’ve been a loyal lover of white sand and turquoise water for as long as I can remember, but I’ve now found myself a new love.

We were lucky enough to have our personal chef and wonderful housekeepers from our villa in Sanur join us again. And of course take care of every need imaginable with the highest standard of service. Each meal was spectacular and no request was too much. We felt like superstars, living the ultimate dream of pure luxurious indulgence, and it was seriously awesome! We are beyond grateful to Villa Seriska for such a beautiful stay and accommodating and anticipating our needs.

Here are some of our photos from our stay at this heavenly villa. We can’t wait to visit again :)
