I’ve decided that this upcoming summer will be known as the Summer of Love. It’s going to be full of family, friends, sunsets, picnics, festivals and it’s already begun. I’m filling it with everything and everyone I love….and as much festivities as possible!

This past year has been amazing, though we have been faced with many challenges as loved ones around us have fallen seriously ill. This has really awakened me further to how precious and fleeting life is. What a gift we have, and I don’t want to spend a moment longer not living my dreams, and sharing life with the people I love the most.

So the summer of love has started. These pics are just the beginning of my mermaid days by the beach with my family and friends. Frolicking in the ocean in my trusty Del Maar Latin Swimwear of course, feeling the love, playing in the sand and surf with my beloved family.

This year we’ll be heading home to Melbourne to celebrate a very big Finnish/Australian/American Christmas, with many extra special birthday celebrations thrown in, and some fun New Years festivities in Byron Bay to follow. I can’t contain my excitement when I think of being with my whole family once again.

I’d love to hear about your plans this holiday season, and what you are grateful for this year, so if you feel like sharing please message me here or leave me a comment below :)

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

Life’s a Beach

November 23, 2016

This holiday season we are embracing a summery Christmas by the beach here in Australia. I’ve created the ultimate Etsy gift guide that is sure to provide even more sunshine and joy to your loved ones this Christmas.

One of the reasons I love Etsy so much is my passion for supporting local artists, small business and buying handmade and sustainable gifts…this is exactly what Etsy is all about. I love gifts from the heart that also support our planet and the community of artists who create these beautiful treasures.

Etsy really is a one stop shop for all your holiday decorations and gifts, as well as an inspirational place for DIY projects. Get creative and give your loved ones something as unique and wonderful as they are.
