Monday, Monday ...⠀
The phone call that changes everything ⠀
The one that comes in the night, and splits the darkness. ⠀
Murdering hope, killing restoration, crushing faith, defying reason, destroying futures, and extinguishing life. ⠀
The chilling words nobody ever anticipates saying, ⠀
The heart wrenching words nobody is ever prepared to hear,
The soul numbing words nobody can explain.
Words that freeze time, ⠀
“Something terrible has happened,”⠀
Those words, hysterically sobbed in the dark of night, now will never leave you⠀
All you hear, in the dead of night, every night, those words, frozen in time. ⠀
I pray you never hear those words.
Well Saturday exceeded all my expectations!⠀
🍂⠀
I’ve got all the feels.⠀
👍🏻⠀
What a fulfilling and productive day. ⠀
🙌🏻⠀
I’ve sent my June newsletter out, and it is packed with info, recipes and even a sneak peek.⠀
You can sign up for newsletters and food styling info in the bio link.⠀
Righto friends, I’m off to make hot chocolate 
And to chill... ⠀

Ms S woke up at 5am because she was cold. All attempts to go back to sleep failed, so along with my plans for the day of admin, ( those emails just keep coming ) testing a few rhubarb recipes and hopefully a golden hour photo session, I’m going to have to included a nap!⠀
What are your Saturday plans friends?⠀

Two things I have never been. 
A morning person, which most of you already know, ⠀
And a rebel.⠀
I don’t say this to be smug or virtuous. 
I have just never been a rule breaker.⠀
Until now.⠀
In researching and writing about food styling, for my upcoming courses, and learning food photography with my fancy pants camera, I’ve come across a whole lot of “rules.”⠀
Do’s and don’ts around food styling composition, the rule of thirds, groupings of items etc.
🍊
I realize that whilst they are helpful, they are not always essential.⠀
I’ve never followed any of these rules in my styling.
As I’ve said many times before I am self-taught, and my styling has always been purely intuitive.⠀
Instinctive.⠀
No grids.⠀
No formats.⠀
No rules.⠀
When I started thinking about what I should be doing, or that I wasn’t doing “properly,” you know what happened - I hit a wall, and froze, I and was in a slump for weeks.
🍊
It was a real struggle to find enthusiasm for my work.⠀
I got stuck in comparisonitis and had total analysis-paralysis.
It was horrible.
😐
It wasn’t until a friend told me, “ creative as if you are the only person that will see it “ - that I realized how limiting and restricting the rules can be!
😢
This freed me up to go back to doing what I love, what comes naturally to me, and you know what, it will for you to!
🧡
So friends, if you’re thinking you can’t be a food stylist because you don’t know all the rules, I’m here to tell you you have to have more than rules, you have to develop a strong intuition!⠀
Food styling is very subjective, start practicing doing what you like, how you like it to look, and what makes you excited about your work.⠀
The rules won’t give your images that wow factor, it just becomes styling by numbers, what makes food photos interesting, and what will set yours apart is personal style. And no one can teach you that.⠀
So go on, get practicing, I’m here to cheer you on.⠀

I got up early 🙈 and went to gym, and I ate breakfast. So now I think I’m due for a nap.

Mist situation 6.27 am.

I had a couple of apples and pears in the fruit bowl that did not look like they were going to win any beauty awards. ⠀
I picked them up and saw that one of the pears had a bite out 😳 obviously Ms S had changed her mind about munching, and popped it back in the bowl.⠀
🙄⠀
2 hours later I had a delicious smelling kitchen, & “et voila “ a rustic pear, vanilla and olive oil cake.⠀
👌🏻⠀
What’s your favorite way to use tired looking fruit ? ⠀

“Hey Skipper, do you know today is the winter solstice?”⠀
“Winter-what ?”⠀
“Winter solstice Skip, it’s the shortest day of winter, when the earth is the furthest distance from the sun, so it’s actually mid winter, and from now on it gets lighter again “⠀
“Hmmmmm ok Flipper, if you say so..”⠀

Today’s mist report. Very misty. Very.
For some reason my caption didn’t post first time around ...
So now it seems really weird to type it all again,
So I’m just going with a pretty persimmon picture.
Do you pronounce them purse-A-mon or pers-sim-mon ? 🤔
