Hey! I’m Klara.
And I have this thing burning inside my body. And I think it’s for you.
Because I think you’re not living your best life right now.
I think you’re feeling a little stuck.
I think there aren’t enough hours in your day.
I think you feel like everyone in your social media feed is a step ahead.
I think you’ve got big ideas that should be exciting to you, but instead tear you down because they’re juuuuuust out of reach.
I think you’re in the habit of getting swept up in what you should be doing, and where you should be, and who you should be doing it with.
I think your life sometimes feels like a freight train, and sometimes even the simplest things get bypassed because IT. JUST. WON’T. STOP.
I think you’ve set your sites on something awesome in the future, and you’re waiting for that thing to happen before your life will finally click into place and you can actually start living it properly.
If any of that (or all of it!) rings true for you, let me say it again…
I am so happy that we’ve finally found each other.
Because I believe that I can help you come unstuck. I believe I can help you manage your super precious time more healthily. And most of all, that “best life” you’re waiting for?
I believe I can get you there.
What I need from you is a commitment. Not to me. To you. To changing the things you can, and accepting what you can’t.
I can’t make you rich. I can’t wave a magic wand and give you an enviable social media feed. I can’t take away the crappy things that have taken away your power over the years and left you feeling like this.
But I can give you the tools to turn it around. I can teach you how to properly take care of yourself. I can teach you how to think differently. I can give you little ideas to change and inspire the way you see your home, your wellness, your relationships, and yourself.
I can also kick you in the butt if I need to.
At Her Happy Heart, you’ll find all kinds of things to kick-start the new you. You’ll find pieces that target your soul and challenge your mindset. You’ll find real, practical tips for self-care. You’ll find ideas for creating routines, for managing your personal finances, for cooking dinner, for buying gifts for your loved ones. You’ll find fluffy little bits of advice for trying new things and having a bit of fun.
You’ll even find a freakishly popular FAQ about getting a septum piercing, if that’s your thing.
The main thing I need you to know is…
I want you here!
No matter who you are, what your life looks like, how content you are, or how scrambled you feel day after day – I want you here!
I believe you deserve to be living a glorious life.
And I want to be the one who shows you what that looks like.
Are you in?
Let’s do this, strange new internet friend!
A little bit about me…
I’m a writer. I’m married to my sexy Californian IT-nerd/carpentry dabbler/handyman extreme husband, Chris, and we have one long-lashed little boy, Jackson, and a tiny lil baby girl, Everley. We live in Perth, Western Australia with one needy dog and one regular dog.
I spent 30 years of my life wondering what I wanted to do with it.
Turns out being a wife, mum and writer is my jam.
I love cooking, and I love eating even more. I love the rain, although sometimes the sun gives me unexplainable happy feelings. I sing constantly, so my kids think that’s a normal thing that people do (their lives are basically a sub-par musical). I am obsessed with ASOS, vegemite toast, cups of tea, having a clean kitchen, crochet and dark chocolate.
Oh, and writing. I can’t get enough of it.
I have been blogging for over 13 years (!) You will find pieces of me scattered all over the internet if you look hard enough. But don’t look too hard. I went through a pretty emo stage with my blog in my late teens. Crushing on my best guy friend was HARD. But hey. It worked out.
As well as blogging here, I write for Mum Central.
On top of that, I’ve started writing about ten books that, if I’m being real, I will probably never finish.
Her Happy Heart began as a lifestyle blog aimed at encouraging women to live their best, most joy-filled lives. I’m a big believer in finding joy in the little things in day-to-day life. But as I blogged, the vision grew, and I realised that this little corner of the internet is about more than sparking a bit of joy. People want their lives changed! And I had ideas on how that could happen for them! It’s a giant work in progress, but I believe that if you dig around here enough, you’ll pick up some serious tools for bettering your life. I hope that no matter who you are and what your story is, you will find a piece of encouragement here!
PS Some of the older content on this site was written by a bunch of extremely talented ladies I used to have as my writing team. I’m sure you’ll love their pieces too!
