Hi, my name is Helene and I am from Paris, France. I moved to Iceland after 2 years of travelling. I studied law and movie producing. I just started this new blog as an experiment with the sole goal of writing about what I like.
This is not my first blog: I have one about movies that my friend Priscilla is now managing called Movie Guide Me and I used to have a travel related one. But now that I’m not traveling anymore, I thought of doing something more eclectic.
During my 2 years of traveling, I lived 3 months in Nepal with a humanitarian project where I helped rebuild a school after the earthquakes of 2015. It was the most fulfilling experience of being surrounded by other good-hearted volunteers and incredibly generous locals. Being in that kind of energy was such a gift, and I thought about trying to keep it with me. So I tattooed on my wrist in Nepali “matra maya” which means “only love”, hence the title of this blog.
I’m trying to always come from a positive place and think with love in my everyday life which is far from being easy. I wanted to create a positive, cozy place for people to hang out with me and help us stay in that state of mind! So come with love and enjoy it!
I recently created a Movie Club where we watch a movie together once a month and then we discuss it. You can subscribe to the club with the newsletter and learn more here.
I also created a Creative Writing challenge, where once a month we write something on an imposed theme learn more here.
I am not sure about the concept of the blog yet : I explain everything here
