CREATIVE AT HEART
I studied extensively, before feeling like I found my place in life. When illness forced me to abandon my nursing study and later, my job as a Primary Teacher, I found myself lost with a lot of time on my hands. It was in these moments that I reconnected with what makes me happiest . Love + community + creativity + freedom... and the rest has evolved from there.
Growing up, I was given free reign and enormous encouragement to experiment, within every aspect of my life. That passion stayed with me and propelled me to create a lifestyle + business that I adore. I'm motivated by the drive to have every customer feel blown-away by their experience. My 'why' is the passion I have to provide gorgeous, natural + sustainable products for every consumer, regardless of race or personal beauty/ethical preferences. I want you to know you're aligned with a business that truly cares about you, and the environment! I care about what goes into our products/services, as much as the results that come out of them - and the emotion they bring to you.
I have been there with my clients while they cry, laugh, squeal, dance and everything in between. My favourite part of being a beauty therapist, is helping women of all ages feel beautiful. The best part of these experiences for me, is helping women realise they do have beautiful features. I have had some really special moments helping with self-confidence and getting a chance to make someone feel amazing, which is just the best feeling!
I am a huge believer in enjoying what you put your time and energy into. I’ve faced tremendous challenges and obstacles in my life, like we all have to some degree. However, today I’m living my best life. I’m free, healthy and happy. I’ve experienced the best and the worst life has to offer - and I’ve learnt it’s most valuable lesson. Bend don’t break. When tough times come your way, you can either ride the waves, or fight them.
When the waves roll in, creativity is the way I soothe my soul. I love to play music and get lost in the beauty of creating. It wasn’t until I was an adult, attempting to create my own field to vase blooms, that I realised my Nana's garden is one of the most influential places in my life. It is where she shared her secrets of gardening and told me tales of her life. Our shared passion for working with flowers and foliage, has inspired me to grow my own slightly wild + unique blooms in the soils of our family farm in the Manawatu - with love from soil, to seed, to bloom.
My own health journey inspired me to study deeper into physical and mental wellbeing, stress management, trauma and unpacking the correlation between the mind and body. After 3 years of extensive study I am passionate about and embrace holistic medicines - plants as medicine, traditional remedies, and going back to basics - air, water, soil, energy.
This and more fills me with joy, fun, passion, connection, beauty, laughter + inspiration — those are world-changing forces, that I love to share ! My adventures are only just beginning. These past couple of months have been heads down - I closed Hello Glow as you know it, sold all belongings, started planning a new business and bought a caravan to reno - I switched to pursue passions that have been a longtime calling. I won’t spoil where I’ll be heading just yet, but I'm excited to slow down, explore, and enjoy the simple things in life. It sure has been a wild ride. Why don't you come along with me?
