I’m so excited and happy to share with you a little about an absolutely beautiful brand I love. I have actually been an avid follower and shopper at Ishka since my twenties! They have been around that long and have the most amazing exotic collections of homewares, furniture and jewellery. I’d love my entire home to be filled with Ishka! Apparently in hindu, Ishka means ‘intense love and physical infatuation’ and I seriously understand why. When you enter one of their stores you will see how everything is so aesthetically divine. Not only is it all so beautiful, Ishka are a socially conscious company, working with artisans from developing countries, contributing to the progress and empowerment of international communities in need.

We were lucky enough to style some of their beautiful jewels on one of our trips to Thailand. It was the perfect setting to share these worldly treasures. Hope you all get a chance to check them out in store or online for those not in Australia.

With love and gratitude,

I’m forever inspired by the ocean…she is my medicine and nourishes me on every level of my being. I simply have to step barefoot on her shores and I instantly feel better. She provides my balance in life as a busy mum, business owner and creative director.

My outfits are definitely heavily influenced by my beach lifestyle and love of the ocean – white sands, white wash and every shade of blue you could imagine. I’m so obsessed with this Spell romper, the perfect canvas for layering up and heading out on long beach walks, boat adventures, and pretty much mermaid living. Some healing turquoise is always my favourite accessory to replenish and balance my energy.

I feel so blessed every day I get to create my dreams with my precious husband/photographer and our children, in a space that I love, that continues to inspire me so much.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

“Dream big with all the love and joy in your heart and pave the way for all the wondrous magic and miracles of life”

I’m so excited to share this photo shoot Bobby and I created in Hawaii for Billabong Australia for their January Fade to White collection. We had a whole day to play in the sunshine and salt water, soak up all the Aloha, as we explored the incredible northshore coastline. We felt so far removed from the world, in our own creative bubble. It was all so dreamy.

I’ve been floating in that bubble ever since and rather than looking to the next holiday, next break, next satisfying fulfilling distraction, my every day has become an ongoing stream of all that I love. It’s work and play all rolled into one. I don’t feel the need to escape my life, my work, my heartaches or my reality. I’m learning to simply be, accept all that comes, all that I create, love what is, and ride the wave.  I’m thankful for each miraculous experience, even if it’s painful at times.

Hawaii definitely stole my heart and amplified my dreams to new heights. The energy of this land is just so magnetic and healing and brought so many insights to me simply be being there. I’m so grateful for my opportunities to travel and experience so much in this beautiful world.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

These moments are so precious….so magical….so spontaneous. I feel so grateful my passion takes me to these places to explore nature and capture the essence of this beautiful and still serenity. I danced barefoot in the warm golden light, in awe of the shimmering, iridescent ocean, and the swirling pastels in the sky. This divine moment will be etched in my memory forever. I hope you can feel the love and joy in these photos.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
