Seasons

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I find the beginning of Autumn to be the prettiest time of the year. Just before the leaves begin to fall they turn bright yellows, oranges and reds. The streets look bright and alive. It’s a feast for your eyes and your senses.

And then, over a couple of short weeks, the leaves fall and the trees are left bare. Although still beautiful, everything is different.

At The Sebastian Foundation we are committed to helping families in need. We believe in the power of the family unit and are passionate about seeing the family bond strong and stable.

 As some of you might know, Guy and I have two little boys. Hudson and Archer. They are the light of our lives and most precious to us. We are so lucky that they are healthy little humans and other than them being born, we have not had to visit a hospital with them. I am grateful on a daily basis for their health and can only imagine how life altering it would be for us as a family if one of them took seriously ill.

My skin care routine

JULES_SEBASTIAN(21of25)

Taking care of my skin has always been important to me. Even as a teenager, I had a strong routine and knew that if I had a good skin foundation, then I wouldn’t have to wear as much make-up and my skin would look younger for longer. So, when Woolworths approached me to come on board to be the face of their new skin care range voeu (which is French for wish, cause who doesn’t wish for great skin?!), I was very excited and a little intrigued to see what the range was all about.

Tea with Jules with Fiona Falknier

Fiona

The reason I started Tea with Jules was to share the stories of my guests in hopes of inspiring you to live your very best life. To me, we are all the same. Regardless of position or status, we are all humans on the planet doing our best to have a happy life.

The guests who come to share a tea with me, have a similar thread to their story. They have had to endure some pretty tough life moments to come through to the other side to find confidence and joy. The road is very rarely easy, even for the most beautiful, smart and noted people. Everyone has a story. The ups and downs is what makes a person who they are. Its a beautiful disaster and I love it!

Happy!

Flowers

On this day of international happiness – I got to thinking about just that – happiness. A simple word but a complex feeling. The quest for happiness is a lifelong one and one that we are all on. Most parents say the most important thing they want for their kids, is for them to be happy. It’s the dream. The goal. The mission. Everyone has sad and hard days, some sadder and harder than others. The human spirit has relentless stamina and I am always amazed with what it can endure.

Tea with Jules with Relationships Expert, John Aiken

John Aiken

Ok, confession…I’ve been married for almost 9 years (in May!), I dated my husband for 8 years before we got married and knew him for 6 years before we dated. Phew! When you put it in writing, that’s a really long time! So, the concept for a TV show where people tie the knot upon meeting for the very first time, was a lot for me to get my head around! I couldn’t believe people were doing it, but alas, once I started watching Married at First Sight, I was hooked!
