What an incredible week we just had with the family in beautiful Byron Bay with the divine Sienna Byron Bay. The town was so alive, abuzz with festival energy and excitement! It’s been over 10 years since our last Byron trip and even though it’s changed so much, it was still just as magical as I remembered it before. I was instantly in love once again with those lighthouse views over Cape Byron, pastel sunsets over Wategos beach, and long stretches of deserted sandy beach right at our doorstep at our wonderful beach house.

In between our festival days dancing up a storm at Bluesfest, we spent them with the kids celebrating a very special 10th birthday, exploring the local beaches, and enjoying some amazing Byron food and hospitality. There were a couple of absolute standout, must experience food highlights for us. First was the inspirational Naked Treaties who catered the most delicious, vital array of yumminess for our daughter’s birthday. The raw, gluten, dairy, sugar, guilt free cookies and cream birthday cake was simply out of this world! And so beautifully decorated :) We also spent a magical evening at The Byron at Byron, enjoying the most divine 4 course meal and relaxing massages….this really was so perfect for in between all the festival craziness and dancing…..my feet were very very thankful ;)

Our days at Bluesfest were undoubtedly the highlight of the trip for us all. It was our first time, and also taking the kids to a festival as well. It was so amazing and fun dancing with them, having our nails done at Sienna Byron Bay’s nail bar, and shopping the artisan stalls. Strutting along at dusk in gorgeous Spell Designs with so many gorgeous festival babes was an absolute dream come true. We feel so blessed for the connections we made during our time in Byron. It’s always the best part of any adventure for us.

We were so thrilled to discover some amazing new music and fall in love again with old favourites. Our top faves were – D’Angelo, Nahko + Medicine for the People, and Kendrick Lamar. Our last night we were lucky enough to see Brian Wilson, Tom Jones and The Blues Brothers Band. There were moments where time stood completely still as we listened to these soul singers share their magic.

Besides all the music and dancing, we had a blast hanging out at the nail bar, switching up our colours each day and having some mother/daughter manis. Sienna Byron bay make the most beautiful, eco-friendly nail polishes. Not only does it contain no nasties, it’s vegan, and it’s quality polish in the most exquisite colours. It’s been my favourite brand of polish for well over a year now, and watching the beautiful Danielle, owner and creative director of the company, grow this amazing range from the heart has been so beautiful to witness. Make sure you go check them out and follow their beautiful journey on insta.

We are so grateful to Sienna Byron Bay for organising this trip for our family. It was full of so many beautiful moments and deep connections to like hearted folk, and these memories will continue to sing in our hearts forever.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
