Hey you!

Firstly, thanks for stopping by.

If we haven’t met yet, I’m Kylie. I’m a wife, mother, business woman, and writer.

I believe I have a story worth sharing – and it’s one  that has many twists and turns. I write with the hope of helping people just like you realise that even when times are tough, we can rise above and create our own life – a life worth living.


My Story


I grew up in a small country town on the outskirts of Auckland, New Zealand. I had an amazing childhood – raising animals on the farm and enjoying the classic kiwi lifestyle. 

It wasn’t until I went to boarding school at the age of thirteen where life started to change. I went from being a kind-hearted country gal, to a rebellious and sarcastic teenager. 

I was bullied for the first two years and it changed me. Even all these years later I still remember those times where I felt ridiculed, small, and insignificant. 

It was around the age of sixteen that things started to take a turn; for the worse. 



A Deathly Love

I fell in love with a bad boy. It was that all-consuming-love, the kind that ends up getting you kicked out of home at the age of seventeen. 

Then my life changed forever. A week after my eighteenth birthday, it happened. 

I hit an oncoming car. And that man? He was gone forever – because of me. 

A part of me died inside, and I went into a downward spiral. From that moment on life was never the same again.   


An Engagement

I was a wreck after the accident. I drowned my sorrows and it took me years to recover from what happened. 

A few years later, I fell in love again. And this time it was picture perfect. We had a puppy, brought a house together, and got engaged. 

Alex and I built a life together. We had it all planned out. Until we didn’t. 

A month before we are due to get married, Alex call’s it quits and ends our seven year relationship. 


The Rebirth

At 26-years-old I sell our house, quit my corporate job, and travel abroad. The path to self-discovery begins.

After a year studying psychology and learning about myself, I start to rebuild.
That’s when I meet Jono – exactly one year after Alex and I separated. 

A year later we are engaged. Another passes and we are married, and now we have a beautiful 3-year-old daughter together. But it hasn’t always been rainbows and lollipops.
