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.

Iridescence

A sunset dusted with fairy magic

Tangible, vivid, glistening, romantic 

Moonbeams sparkling, reflecting iridescent light

Illuminating, glowing deep into the night

 

There are days when I arrive at the beach and it’s just out of this world. PURE MAGIC. This was one of those days. It was just prior to the full moon eclipse aka blood moon, and each day during this week I witnessed such majestic light. I was so moved by the breathtaking beauty of it all. I was on a natural high as I took it all in. And I must admit it reminded me of my rather colourful past when I would dabble in mind altering substances. This was definitely a mind altering experience, though completely natural and healing. My past of substance abuse is not something I talk about often. I’ve made peace and accepted this as part of my journey. It shaped me into the person that I am, for which I’m grateful. And I have accepted all the consequences of my choices. One of the lessons I took from my altered experiences is that you don’t actually need to take anything to alter your perception and see the world as a magical place. It’s all there available to you at any moment. I’ve been clean for well over 15 years now and my experiences of every day life far outweigh those of my youth. The magical moments I experience now alter me in a way that I can feel the chemical balance of my body shift naturally. My natural endorphins rise and I feel as though I could float away on a cloud. It’s true joy. And very real. I no longer have the need to escape myself, to escape my reality. I now know I am the creator of my reality. I shape it into the beauty that I see. And I know that the more I love myself, the more I accept myself, and see the beauty that is me, the greater my perceptions of the world will be. My view of the world is but a mirror of how I see myself. So I say, fill those wounds with love, allow them to heal and transform with acceptance, and allow yourself to experience all the love, joy and magic that is your birthright. We were all born to have the most amazing life possible. It’s all within reach, just one small adjustment away.

Sending LOVE and LIGHT to you all, always.

A vintage style tee, some perfectly worn in denim cut offs, ankle boots, a felt fedora, messy braided hair, and a whole pile of silver! One of my favourite day to day outfits that is so easy to throw together and makes me feel as though I’m forever at a festival dancing up a storm to some awesome tunes. Jewels jingling with each beat as the rhythm overtakes me. I’m riding the sound waves as I visualise myself on the back of a bike, arms up, wind in my hair, a never-ending road ahead. Utterly wild and free. Total bliss.

Big thanks to Baby Likes to Ride for the awesome tee, Minc Collections for the stacking rings that bring so much joy to my days, & major babe Child of Wild for the show stopping neckwear.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

A week of gold and turquoise, inspired by sacred geometry, golden aura crystals, and egyptian opulence. Turquoise always has such a strong presence in my life. It’s my healing colour and healing stone. Gold is something I’ve been building in my jewellery collection lately and I’m so inspired by the stacking possibilities. I have so many amazing jewels to style and giveaways coming up. Stay tuned to the frequency of light and love…..so much awesomeness awaits you.

AND a little reminder to all that this Elephant ring pictured below on my middle finger is part of a BLOG giveaway I am running during the month of April. At the end of this month, I will be giving this away to one lucky person who is following my blog. All you need to do is sign up to follow my blog.
