Vibrant blossoms bringing colour to every scene

I hear the garden awakening from the deep sleep of winter

Signalling the promise of spring

A day spent mermaiding on the beach and connecting to mother earth, I felt the changes in the intensity of the sun, my bones began to thaw and I was filled with excitement knowing spring is so close by. It’s my favourite time of year. The build up in me is always fairly ecstatic! I know the weather will warm and my birthday is just around the corner. With only summer and holidays to follow!

Inspired by the promise of spring I felt drawn to a fresh palette of colour – warm whites, peachy tones and subtle gold shimmers. Flowers, silk, lace, mermaid silhouettes and soft flowing fabrics reflect my strong feminine energy on this day. I’m so often drawn to these colours and style during spring.  A lightness and ethereal energy takes over as I feel the season change and I shed the denser energy of winter.

Wearing exquisite designs from Myee Carlyle and Amilita I felt like an exotic spring mermaid frolicking on the shores, finding warm shelter behind the rocks to cocoon myself in.

It was a truly magnificent day, and one I’d really like to credit to my husband – the amazing man who takes these awesome photos of me. Mr. Bobby Bense. He has no idea how good he is, and he’s so humble that he does not ask for credit in anyway, which makes me want to give it to him even more. I am so blessed to have him take my photos and share this experience of creatitivity and joy with him. It has brought us so much closer and given us time together to have fun. So thank you Bobby, my beloved, for all your support, love and presence. Deepest gratitude and all my love.

Exciting times are here, and even more exciting times are to come. Sending mountains of love and light to you all.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
