Hi there!

Thanks for stopping by. I am Hélène, 30 something, biologist, adapt of an eco-responsible lifestyle, wonderer, coffee drinker, upcycler, DIYer, organic foodie. I was born and raised in France (hence the dual language blog attempt…), but lived abroad for 10 years.

Even though I now settled down in the basque country in France, I travel a lot and was based in 3 different countries in the past 8 years.

I can’t remember when I was not a crafter/upcycler/DIY seeker…Especially cause I am coming a long line of crafty creative mother, grandmothers, great-grandmother, aunties.

After so many travels and moves, I started designing my own travelling accessories and finally turned my hobby into a business: Something BoHo by Leni. I create and make travelling accessories that are pretty (well…that my opinion right…), practical, durable and made with responsibly sources materials.

In my spare time, I love to cook healthy food from scratch and experiment in the kitchen, upcycle ANYTHING, drink coffee, walk everywhere, run everywhere, climb, surf, walk barefeet on the beach…

After living a simple traveller’s lifestyle, and because I am a biologist, I always looked for alternative/ more ecological and sustainable ways to live and consume. Through this blog I’d like to share my experience in doing so. I hope you will have a great journey on it. If you do, please leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you. If not, well, you can always close the page 😉

In any case, keep smiling and enjoy every bits of life…responsibly!

Hélène A.K.A. Leni xxx
