Recently I had the pleasure of staying at the @conservatoriumhotel in Amsterdam. What a wonderful hotel with such a rich design and architectural history. The spa was very relaxing and I enjoyed my dip in the pool 🏊‍♀️ . Read all about my experience by clicking my link in bio!

A little blue for you on bluemonday today! How was your Blue Monday or otherwise the most depressing day of the year apparently? I’m not sure it’s really true but it has been a miserable day in Amsterdam today... so I’m doing BrewMonday instead. Can’t wait to get together tonight for my ‘Instagram Tips and Tricks for Small Businesses’ talk, and I will have a warm brew waiting for everyone after braving the cold rainy weather. workmode growyourbusiness growyourbrand

One of the best things that Instagram has brought me are new friends. So many people who I now call friends were once just followers or people I followed. Moving countries is difficult sometime, I miss my friends in Bermuda, but am lucky to have made some great new ones in Amsterdam! It’s also great the way we support each other through building our careers or businesses. Get out there and find your tribe and grow your circle that you socialize with. Everyone has something to teach you and everyone has something to learn from you! Thanks to all my new friends over the last year since starting my business in Amsterdam! amsterdam womensupportingwomen

All the ‘Early Bird’ tickets have sold but there are still a couple of regular tickets left for next weeks ‘Instagram Tips and Tricks for Small Businesses’ . The session is a great way to learn everything you need to know about how to use Instagram as a tool for Small Businesses and increase sales or gain clients. As the group is small it will also be more specific to the types of businesses attending and a great way to collaborate and meet other small business owners in Amsterdam! Get your tickets for Monday via the link in my bio 👆🏻 and hopefully I will see you there! Drinks and snacks will be provided. instagramtipsandtricks growyourbusiness socialmediamarketing

Started my day off with a lovely smoothie of carrot, ginger, turmeric and orange 🥕🍊 sometimes I prefer to just blend rather than juice as you get all of the fiber as well as the vitamins. It has a thicker texture and not for those who don’t like orange juice with bits in 😂. Keeps me going in the mornings as I don’t have much of an appetite when I get up and the ginger and turmeric have great anti-inflammatory benefits. Maybe I should make one of a different colour each day? Tomorrow could be a red day with beetroot, lemon, purple kale and blood oranges? eattherainbow blendedveggies eateverything

Who else wants some of this vegan potato bake from @fareisle ??? Trying to be vegan this month is a little challenging, but I did find a good vegan grated cheese in the @ekoplazabio yesterday, so that’s one switch I can easily make and continue with. Trying to add a lot more beans and lentils into my meals for protein and I would love to find a good vegan replacement for ricotta cheese that can be bought locally. Any good recommendations from my amsterdamvegan friends? workinprogress goingvegan veganuary vegansofamsterdam

Comment from Helen Turner:


We are often told that we should become better listeners but how often are we told to become better observers? I think through my work as a physiotherapist for over 10 years I’ve become a pretty good observer, I notice things about people that others don’t see. The way they move, the way they experience their surroundings, their posture, a slight limp, pain even when not verbally expressed. I’m always acutely aware of the people around me, their proximity, their energy, they way they move through life. I love to people watch, not to look at their material goods such as clothing or accessories, but to watch how people move through life, how they communicate, express themselves. I see the insecurities in the people who like to be the centre of attention, I see the confidence of those who choose to stay ‘out of the limelight’. Being quiet is not a lack of confidence or shyness, it’s an awareness and appreciation of others around you and the need not to compete with anyone. Those that need your words will find you and sit and listen for a while..... ✨ wordsoftheday

Back to work! ✨First day of work of 2018! It’s been nice to have a break. Time to refresh and rest. Now things are full steam ahead with everything that’s coming up in 2018. I’ve made a few changes to my lifestyle (not resolutions) and will see how they make me feel. Change is good and learning to listen to your own body and gut instinct is one of the most important things you can do for your health and well-being. Are you making any sustainable adjustments to your daily life? Need some tips or help? I’m taking on a small number of new health coaching clients if any of you are interested in working together to get your health back on track this year. Sometimes all need is a little guidance to get started. What are your goals for this year? Please email me at info @helenturnerhealth.com for more info or send me a DM! backtowork healthcoach gettinghealthy

Special delivery of blooms to brighten up my New Year! 💚🌸💐 They smell amazing and brighten up the Winters day! Lovely way to start 2018. Also you may have noticed the Instagram name change! Back to using my full name. I never expected to be recognized or known by my Instagram name and have to say I find it quite strange when people refer to me as my Instagram name. So it’s back to my full name and no more strange feelings! So today is Day 1 of the minsgame and I’ll be documenting my items that I’m getting rid of via my Instastories , who knows maybe there will be some things up for sale!? Also Day 1 of veganuary so I’m going to be cooking up a chunky vegetable soup with my organic veggies from the noordermarkt . What are you all up to?? Any plans you would like to share?? Happy New Year everyone!💚🌿🌸

Goodbye 2017 ✨ you were lots of fun and hard work. Time for some new things in 2018, lots more focus, new ideas, travel plans and exploring! ✈️Continuing on my journey of living a healthier life because I am my own first client. My health becomes before anyone else’s (I’m still getting used to this after 10 years working in the healthcare industry) but I strongly believe you can’t help others unless you are helping yourself first💚 People tend to follow actions rather than words so let people see the things you are doing to improve your health and look after your body and mind 📿. 2018 is going to be a year of less plastic and more recycling ♻️. Less mass production and more hand made. More locally grown food, less meat, more veggies. Less STUFF! I’m doing @theminimalists minsgame to do a major declutter of my home. Also I’ll be doing veganuary so I’ll be trying some new vegan cooking at home. I’ve yet to try the vegan cheeses so that will be interesting! I’m looking forward to January as I will be going to Berlin for ethicalfashionshowberlin and I’m super excited to find some new sustainablefashion brands out there. Lots of other things going on behind the scenes that I can’t tell you about yet! So I wish you all a Happy New Year 🎊 and let’s support each other with our journey through 2018! I’ve made some great new friends since moving to Amsterdam and am so lucky to be surrounded and supported by some talented people who inspire me to keep improving. So, see you on the other side! 2018 here I come! 🥂🍾

Winter wonderland ❄️ I was hoping the snow might stick today but no.... hopefully we will get a few more snowy days soon! Hope you all have a lovely weekend! I’ve decided I’m going to try and do the minsgame by the @theminimalists this Jan. I will be traveling some of the time so not sure how I’m going to work around that but need to have a major declutter. Also I will be reading up on @mariekondo and her methods for organizing your home! Wish me luck. Anyone else feel like joining in? Also I’ve just got tickets to the Ethical Fashion Show in Berlin 16-18 Jan and will be meeting up with my favorite German friend @annelievonahoi for some girl time and ethical fashion discovery! Will anyone else be there? Would be great to meet some new people whilst there! theminimalists theminimals mariekondo declutter ethicalfashionshowberlin ethicalfashionblogger

So I’ve been taking a break from work. This time of year it’s time to tie up loose ends and focus on what the upcoming year will bring. Lots of new things coming and I’m glad to have my friends providing their expertise on my ideas. It’s so nice when people support each-other rather than compete or knock each other down. It’s easy to spot genuine friendships rather than those who choose to just take from you all the time but never give back. So here’s to me being more focused with my time in 2018 and building more supportive relationships with people. Here’s to helping my clients improve their health with my skills and experience that I have to offer. Here’s to making people more aware of looking after their environment and that you cannot be healthy unless you address the toxic substances you come into contact with on a daily basis. Health is not about eating well and exercising there is so much more to being healthy that most people never address. I’m very much looking forward to 2018 ✨🙏🏻 personaldevelopment retreat2018

I’ve been drinking a lot of this recently. Made with fresh ginger and lemon. So much more effective than buying the lemon and ginger tea bags. After watching a video about tea bag production I’m aiming to go tea bag free as much as possible in 2018, buying loose tea only from now on and here’s to making more of my own natural immune boosting herbal drinks. nomoreteabags circulareconomy zerowaste zerowastejourney

Comment from Helen Turner:


So this picture still reminds me of the woman who had a dream. A dream to be independent, to not have to ‘ask permission’, to do things my own way, to not conform, to not have to say ‘yes’ when I wanted to say ‘no’, to not having to be polite even when others were offensive, to not have to put up with inappropriate comments from clients and not be able to say how it really made me feel, to being told I could not take vacation at Christmas, to being told ‘no’ to a pay rise when I was making my employer between 15-20k a month. Thank you to everyone who said no, to everyone who made me feel trapped and not in control of my own life. So here’s to having a dream. My dream came true. Not because I dreamt about it, but because I made it happen, behind the scenes for a while and now as someone who runs my own business, to get to travel the world without having to take vacation and to being able to make the money my skills are worthy of. It’s hard work but oh so very worth it!!! I wish anyone else feeling the same way to make plans, set goals, educate yourself in areas you know nothing about (business, accounting, marketing, social media) because this freedom will not be handed to you on a plate. You have to go and get it..... ificansocanyou freedomfromwork fridayinspiration

So, a little throwback to my favorite shoot of 2017 with @kristina_kutena and @elenastylz on my lovely street the Brouwersgracht in Amsterdam. We managed to organize this very last minute but it all came together perfectly. The morning sunshine was amazing and the streets were nice and quiet that morning. My hair was just as it is naturally and I did my own simple make up. The beautiful flower arrangement by @elenastylz was very eyecatchng and she did s great job giving me a break from carrying it! The shoot was all completed by the time I had to go to work! How perfect.... all in a days work. Hopefully I will get to shoot again with @kristina_kutena in 2018 Fingers crossed! 🤞🏻iingrad jordaan brouwersgracht

Are you looking for some sustainable and ethical Christmas gift ideas? Why not be more conscious this year about the quality and amount of gifts you are buying. Try and buy handmade, local, ethically produced items as much as possible. Also think about what kind of influence you can have on your loved ones. Maybe a non toxic beauty product rather than a big brand perfume or face cream. Why not some hand made organic clothing or a non plastic yoga mat. I’ve written a posts to help you all with some lovely personal gift ideas. I hope you can check it out! Click the link in my bio to find it! I have my favorite yoga mat made from cork in the picture. You can pick one up from @iiwii.cork located just off the Brouwersgracht in Amsterdam or shop online! ethicalfashion ethicalgifts sustainableshopping

So happy to have added another country and city to my list of places I have travelled too. Stockholm was lovely even in the cold snow and rain. I didn’t take as many pictures as I would have liked as it was pretty annoying to keep having to take my wooly gloves on and off. Oh well here is one of the more traditional style of buildings in Stockholm. Was great to meet with @studioheijne and had some lovely food at @brasseriebalzac . Would be great to take another trip in the Summer and see it in a different light. stockholmcity visitsweden visitstockholm

I love Saturday’s in Amsterdam. I’m so lucky to live just across the street from the largest organic market in Amsterdam the noordermarkt . So I’m fully stocked up on veggies. I picked up some lovely wild mushrooms from the mushroom stall which had such a wide variety of mushrooms that there were way two many to pick! So mushroom risotto coming up. Also I’m making a cauliflower pizza tonight with home made cauliflower pizza base, home cooked tomato sauce and some fresh mozzarella and veggies on top. Can’t wait to see how it tastes later on. It’s pretty cold outside so I think I’ll be home the rest of the day keeping warm and doing a little work at home. How is your Saturday going ? Any exciting plans for the day? I’d love to hear what everyone else it up to! satudaysplans organicfoodmarkets

So, I’m aiming to make my 2018 a lot more sustainable than my 2017. To be more conscious about the everyday items that I’m buying and to try and aim for a zero waste household as much as possible. @fashionforgood on the Rokin in Amsterdam are trying to promote people to have more sustainable wardrobes and encourage people to only buy good quality sustainably made clothing rather than cheap fast fashion brands who are damaging the environment using toxic production methods and cheap labour. My suggestion to @fashionforgood would be to have a monthly market where people can buy/sell their second hand clothing items. This would be a great way of expanding the conscious community in Amsterdam and also for people to network with other liked minded slow fashion / sustainability enthusiasts. GoodFashionResolution @fashionforgood . I’m wearing my favorite turtle neck poncho by @studio.markovic an amazing slow fashion brand you should go check out! ✨💚👌🏻🙏🏻

Last night was so much fun! ✨ The lovely @antoninbparis took us for an amazing nighttime tour around Paris in this funky retro car which had a see-through roof! Perfect for viewing all the sights. We saw the light show on the Eiffel Tower, Le Louvre, Montmatre, The Opera House and much more. It was great to learn some of the history of Paris from true locals. Paris has so many historic sights to see there is almost too much to explore. Instagram is a lovely way to meet people from other places and I am so thankful to @antoninbparis for giving up their evening to show us around. Plus I can’t wait to try their organic hair care products also. Keep your eyes posted for more info about the brand. 🙏🏻✨💚 gratefulmoments antoninb parisbynight
