“The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your action will be” Dalai Lama

This new year has been an awakening for me. It was as though by staying up all night long and seeing that sun rise in the sky, some ancient knowledge within my soul stirred and ignited. I have been feeling so alive, vital, so deeply in love with life. Each day brings more joy, freedom and inner love.

With the moon ripe and full I’m shedding some of the heavy and setting some light loving positive intentions to take even greater care of my being. To find more balance with my work, family and time for myself. I was recently reminded of that Jack Johnson song “Breakdown” and hearing this song again was pure happiness to me. It reminded me how much I love moving slowly through life, taking everything in to it’s fullest, and exploring the richness and beauty of each moment we are blessed with. There is no need to control anything, just surrender, trust and flow with the divine. Reach out from your comfort zone and experience all that life has to offer.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

I leapt into holiday mode a little earlier this year and took off down south to Bunker Bay a couple of weeks ago. On the way we stopped off at the divine Milc Homewares in the heart of Dunsborough to check out their amazing store. It was so refreshing to see so many labels I love all in the one place. It’s such a beautiful store run by a beautiful inspiring woman.

If you are lucky enough to live down that way, or are headed down for the holidays, show some local love and check out Milc. And for those who are far away, head to www.milchomewares.com for a great collection of clothing and accessories. You’ll find some of my absolute favourites like Spell and Free people and one of my new faves Bassike. These Bassike organic cotton shorts I’m wearing in these pics are the most comfortable and versatile shorts I own. So many styling options!!!

Hope you all have the most amazing holidays ever! I’m so excited for some down time with my family, summer sunsets at the beach and lazy days by the pool.

Sending so much love to you all!

It’s probably obvious by now that jewellery really speaks to my heart….the gypsy in me is beyond excited by all the creative energy and love that goes into each piece. Matters Speaking have really captured my heart with their divine pieces of jewellery. Simple, elegant and powerful emotive messages that speak directly to my soul. I love that you can share these with family and loved ones as the perfect gifts. A beautiful reminder to those you care about most they are always in your heart.

With the holidays almost upon us, and our families across the country and seas, I am feeling rather nostalgic these past few days. If life has taught me anything, it’s to say all that you want to say right away. Never wait. There might not be another day. Act now, today, this very moment, and let those you love know how much, and all you are grateful for.

I love you all soooooo very much.

Deepest gratitude xxxx

Sandstorm

November 8, 2014

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” Vivian Greene

Having one of those stormy weeks and realising that no matter what storms pass through my life, I will embrace them, lovingly. Because they are me. And this is my life. And to really allow yourself to feel and validate the multitude of stormy emotions that can arise will bring you even faster through the eye of the storm and to the rainbow on the other side. Each of life’s beautiful experiences is a wonderful lesson, that brings us closer to peace. We can choose to embrace and learn the lessons or resist, ignore and repeat them. I find that meeting the pain (which is simply a painful thought) with a loving intention really helps me find the peace and gratitude once again.

Sending you all love and peace for those stormy days.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

I believe in Magic

November 4, 2014

“Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.”  Nora Roberts

Whatever you believe in, that is what makes you the person you are, and all that you see in the world and those around you. Our beliefs govern our thoughts and our actions, the words that come from our tongues, the emotions from our hearts. Every moment we have an opportunity to question what we believe about ourselves and to reinvent our life. We have the chance to be anything at all. And this great gift is what can turn your days into absolute joy.

In the quiet gap where stillness lies, and there is only the present moment, allow yourself to question those beliefs that bring only stress and suffering. This is the space where the serious magic happens. Where we can choose to let go. Where we can dream and conjure, and choose what we want to believe in. I choose peace, love, light and the path of harmony each and every time. I choose to see magic in everything around me, and so I do. It only takes a moment of being in that quiet gap to allow the insight to arise, and let go of the ego that tries so hard to protect us. I say let’s be vulnerable and experience love and joy the way that children do (and we once did). And see the magic in everything, and most of all, see the magic that we are.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

New moon intention

October 24, 2014

With the new moon upon us, it’s a wonderful time to plant new seeds of intention. I’ve spent these waning weeks in reflection, gaining clarity, reassessing everything! Today I feel very clear as I set forth my intention to flow harmoniously with the pace of nature. I want to really experience all the moments of my life with peace and love, rather than thinking about how to get from here to there. And rather than a need to necessarily slow down, (which I kind of need too) it’s more about finding peace within the chaos. Adjusting my sails and moving at a more natural rhythm. I’ve spent some time looking within to dissolve those threads that drive me into stress. I’ve allowed those beliefs to show themselves and gently be defused. And now I’ve awakened clearer, lighter and with even more acceptance for myself. I’ve come to realise that I want to follow my joy and passion within each moment of my day. To honour myself for who I am and all that I value. To see my worth with all the blossoming love in my heart.

Now is the time to refine our intentions for each day that we live on this amazing planet. I encourage you to spend this new moon time imagining all that brings you happiness and fills your heart with joy. Follow your passions and let us all live a beautiful, kind and peaceful life :)

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

Grace and Flow

October 19, 2014

I moved like a gently flowing river, ever so gracefully embracing the currents….the wind gently caressed my skin, and the warm ocean water met my bare feet.

This divine afternoon I floated upon the golden sands in this most exquisite Saboskirt dress and goddess jewels from Grace Bijoux.  This entire outfit evoked so much light and grace within me. I felt extraordinarily feminine, fully embracing of my sensuality, and birthright of pure unconditional self love.

Sending so much love to you all xx

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
