Q+A WITH HA
After receiving a serious grilling in her interview with Evie, our Digital Sales Coordinator and resident Shakespeare, Heidi is bravely back again to answer whatever questions you throw her way.
In this new weekly segment, we will take questions from you, our lovely tribe, so you get to chat directly to the creative mind behind The Life Style Edit.
You can ask Heidi anything from life to love to business - whatever your heart desires! Anyone that knows Heidi will know that there's nothing she loves more than a meaningful, honest conversation.

Tell us a bit about who you are right now, at this very moment.
I am 44. I do not know how I got to be this age. I do not know where the time went. And I do not understand how I managed to raise a child up until now on my own and run businesses and work as a stylist.
This life that we live goes so fast and I can hardly keep up. The Life Style Edit feeds my heart and soul in so many different ways that I never seem to have enough hours in the day to give it. I must admit that if it wasn't for my husband and son waiting for me at home, I would probably work at least 20 hours of the day.
TLSE has been created from instinct, a hunch, a feeling an inner stirring. Being creative I have always relied on this force to guide me, but with TLSE it flows more freely then I think anything else in my life has done before. It continues to roll out and everyday of this journey I cannot believe I get to do what I love and share that with as many people as I do. It was always my longing to create this. I had talked about variations over the years with girlfriends, and it all came down to timing.
The business is flowing and leading me towards the most extraordinary people who not only accept what we are doing, but embrace it. I have found my tribe over the years. People who understand my speak and my knowings. Once you do meet me and get to know me, you will hear snippets of my world dappled into conversations that we share. What you see is what you get. I live authentically and overshare.
I have moments that I stop mid whatever I am doing an look around and take it all in. "I did this", I think to myself and suddenly I am snapped out of my daydream moment with someone calling my name, demanding my attention and reality drags me back in.
How do you take care of yourself ?
My head hits the pillow hard at night, generally sleep calls me before I am ready - before I have had enough time hanging with my boys and being surrounded by the rituals that daily life brings and that I love so much. My brain and body are spent at the end of the day and as the sun goes down, so do I.
I meditate. And have done so for many years. I set goals and have daily affirmations. I live aligned with sun and the moon cycles. I wake at first light, I walk at the ocean in the mornings, my mind and creativity are in full swing with a full moon + rest and reflection on a new moon. I operate according to my inner stirrings and am clear whether it is time for rest, creating, manifesting, dreaming, planning, being, doing or stopping. It has been this way my whole life and it is finely tuned.
I have an innate knowing and trust in the manifest of life. My inner voice is gentle these days. We have made peace. It gently cheers me on, much like my best friend, to push me on, and has lead me to where I am today. So much of my life has been formed on instinct, trust and alignment. And now more than ever, these are the instincts that I rely on.
