Daddy Tree

October 30, 2013

We are blessed to live right across the road from a really cool park with some amazing trees. There is one in particular that was lovingly named “Daddy Tree” by my children. It’s a fantastic climbing tree and has the most insane roots. We visit this tree every day for some climbing fun and I find myself energised whenever in this great tree’s presence.

On this beautiful saturday, fully adorned in mystical Haati Chai jewels and my new favourite dress,  I stepped outside ready to get into the car for the next adventure. Though strangely I was not drawn to travelling this day. I stopped for a moment, unsure of which direction to move in. As I took a few deep breathes and centred myself, I happened to glance across at Daddy tree and instantly I knew that was where I wanted to be. A place that continually energises me, and gifts me endless support and strength through it’s magical presence.

I hope this inspires you to open your hearts to the beauty surrounding you within your own neighbourhood….to take a nice slow stroll and discover your own wonders along the way.

So much love and gratitude,

Helen xx

I love nothing more than to be comfortable in the clothes I’m in. And to feel luxurious as well. With this in between weather in perth I’m obsessed with oversized super soft sweaters and cardis for the cooler evenings. I’m also loving silky kimonos paired with camis that loosely hug your body and caress your skin so perfectly. I’ve recently discovered the most amazing label, Subtle Luxury, who make some exquisite pieces that ooze bohemian style, luxury and comfort. Spun scarves, silk kimonos, cashmere sweaters….in heavenly colours/patterns with subtle details that raise them to that next level. It’s my kind style for home and out and about town.

Here’s a collection of photos from the past week, from the comfort of my own home.
