Sparkling seas & Fiery skies

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.

 

With love and gratitude,

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.

A beautiful morning spent cleansing my crystals in the sun rays. The perfect pick me up for any morning tiredness….gather all your crystals and crystal jewels and sit in the sunshine for a moment. Centre yourself with your breath and be mindful of how precious and beautiful life is. Allow all those loving vibrations to infuse through your entire being and into your crystals.

Breath in love, breath out gratitude.

Blessings and love to you all on this wonderful day,

Helen xx

I’ve been so inspired by all the pre coachella posts on Insta….I’m definitely feeling the vibe and wishing, DREAMING I was going this year. I can’t wait to see all the amazing outfits!!!

Here’s my weekly round up of jewellery pics from Insta. A little more colour with some Hipanema arm candy, Teeki hot pants, and some festive fun with Skin Feelings temporary tattoos :)

And before I finish up this post I just have to say a BIG thank you to all of you who follow my blog. Thank you so very much for your love and support. I LOVE you guys and you all mean the world to me :) And as a very special thank you I am giving away one of the elephant rings (pictured in the first picture) to one lucky blog follower at the end of this month. All you have to do is follow my blog and this lovely ring might be yours.

With love and gratitude,

I can’t believe it’s almost been an entire week since my road trip adventures down south! I’ve been craving the open road and the possibilities of discovering amazing places in nature, and deeply connecting with mother earth in a quiet and beautiful space. Last weekend I was lucky enough to experience many magical moments. I will be sharing those with you over the next few posts starting with our arrival. A sun filled day of family fun followed by a hazy purple sunset. Arriving to our beachside apartment was one long exhale for us all. It was a continual unwinding from this point on as we slowed our pace and melted into bliss.

Here are some snaps from our first day wearing one of my favourite local brands, Sea Dreamer, lovingly made down south in Dunsborough.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
