Hey there, I’m Helen
About the blog: I started Hel On Heels in October of 2014 after I had already been in the “real world” for awhile, but still hadn’t really figured anything out. I write about my life and the things I discover along the way as a young professional out in the world and standing on my own two heels for the first time.
I primarily write about food, fashion, fitness, and finesse (which is code for anything that doesn’t fit into the first three categories, but I like the alliteration).
About me: My family and friends call me “Hel.” It’s a term of endearment that actually turns a lot of heads. I’m not hellacious in the least though. I wear a lot of sparkles, have a “resting pleasant face,” and want to be Queen Elsa when I grow up. For now, I work in non-profit public relations and live in a sweet little apartment in Atlanta, GA with my new hubby and my fur babies, Molly and Mimosa.
I grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta before going to college in a teeny tiny town called Milledgeville. You may recognize it as Julia Roberts hometown in Pretty Woman or where Honey Boo Boo is from. I loved everything about small town living, but after four years, I was ready to get back to the hustle and bustle of the city and eat at restaurants that didn’t have BBQ in the title.
