About Me

I'm Helena, a Portuguese girl living in London. I'm a 37 yo mother of two girls (8 and 9 years old), and big dreamer.

There was a time when I wanted to be an astronaut, but I ended up an Inclusion Officer in a primary school.

Usually feel a bit of an outsider, I'm an introvert girl, like time for myself... I'm insecure but positive, and even a bit funny! I like to read, take pictures, write, try crafty things, watch movies and series. I am curious, love learning and experimenting new things, look for alternatives, follow a different direction.

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living."

FAVOURITE TV SERIES:

Once Upon a Time; 666 Park Avenue; Orange is the New Black; 2 Broke Girls; New Girl; Girls; American Horror Story; Sherlock Homes; Believe; Mistresses, Gilmore Girls, Doctor Who,...
