Happy People - Helen

I think my One Happy Leaf customers are pretty amazing people, so much so that I will be dedicating a new section in my blog to interviewing these Happy People! The first Happy People interview is with Helen! Helen has been a long time supporter of One Happy Leaf so it was only fitting for her to be the first interviewee!

 

Where do you live?

Perth, Australia

What One Happy Leaf products do you own?

I own a Friendship necklace, Serene necklace, Half Moon necklace, a Chubby bird brooch and some Bubble Coasters. I have several other pieces on my wish list. I've also bought necklaces and coasters as gifts for friends. One excellent thing about One Happy Leaf products is that they are light, so if you need to post gifts overseas, they fit the bill perfectly!

Whats your favourite thing about One Happy Leaf?

I absolutely love the philosophy behind One Happy Leaf. Anna has made a choice to make her gorgeous products from a renewable source and she donates part of the profits to planting more trees on our planet. I love that I get to wear jewellery that I feel good about and can also feel that I am contributing to something worthwhile. It's hard to feel guilty buying another piece of jewellery if your purchase is helping to oxygenate and beautify our world!! :-) I also love the natural beauty of her simple designs. They have a minimalist look and look fantastic with anything in my wardrobe.

How would your friends describe you?

Mmmm that's a tricky one, but I think they would say that I am happy, good natured, honest and genuine, with a good sense of humour.

What inspires you and what are you passionate about in life?

Apart from my gorgeous family that light up my life every day, I am inspired by people that make a difference in the world, no matter how big or small, By people that take a risk to lead a life that is truly authentic to them. I am also very inspired by all the natural beauty that surround us in the world. I am a lover of flowers, any flowers, with Peonies being my favourite. My love of flowers has lead me to my passion for photography, especially Macro photography. I love the beauty of a close up shot of a flower and continually marvel at the gorgeous colours and the total perfection of all flowers and plants. 

What are the top 5 things you love to do on the weekend?

1. Spend time with my family
2. Spend time with friends
3. Go out for breakfast or dinner
4. Go A.W.O.L with my camera
5. Spending 10 minutes that turns into hours on Pinterest and Instagram following photographers and all sorts of other creative people making amazing things.

Where I grew up, the nearby bushland was my playground. Spending my days catching frogs, butterflies + playing with mud was when I was at my happiest.
