Overwhelm.
I’ve been there friends. I see a lot of posts here on IG about folks struggling with balance and feelings of overwhelm.
•
I spent ALL of my 30s and most of my 40s ( yes I’m that old! 😭) living in a state of complete and utter overwhelm.
•
It took a significant health scare for me to realize everything I said yes to meant I was saying no to my health and my future with my family.
•
The doctors words, as I sat numbly listening in shock to his analysis of my test results, “ I don’t know how you have even been functioning at all until now,  but if you carry on like this you won’t be around much longer. “
•
I cried in absolute relief.
It was the “permission slip” I needed to STOP.
✋ 
Stop beating myself up mentally.
•
Stop comparing.
•
Stop judging.
•
Stop hiding.
•
Stop people pleasing.
•
Just stop.
•
And you can too! 
Don’t wait until the spinning plates all come crashing down, the juggling balls all hit it you on the head and the wafer thin ice you’re skating on gives way.
How ?
Is the question.
Boundaries ! 
Is my answer.
Healthy firm and fair boundaries that protect my time and my sanity.
•
And here’s the thing friend- you can too. The story of my life is simply that if I can do it, you can do it.
•
You owe it to yourself.

Hi Honey !
I hope your weekend was sweet
🍯 
I spend the day working on biz stuff. Not very exciting but a great opportunity while Ms S was away.
🌼
Now for a bowl of spicy Beef Pho I made earlier to warm me up ... brrr it gets chilly sitting at the computer all day my feet are freezing.

“A rising tide lifts all the boats “
*
 A friend comments that you are doing really well in “life,” otherwise called “ killing it “ on social media. 
And the only thing you feel capable of killing is the annoying fly in your office.
*
A colleague mentions how you’re nailing it at work - moving and shaking and getting things done.
And the only thing you want to move or shake is the annoying client who just “ doesn’t get it”
*
An associate or your competitor starts “upping their game” to match yours. 
And you feel intimidated or threatened. Or worse, jealous and insecure.
*
I get it, and that’s why I’m here to tell you anytime you notice any of these things or feelings friends, know that it’s a good thing !!!
🙌🏻
Making others uncomfortable is not the goal or the aim, living your best life is.
And if that challenges those around you, if that causes them to want to take steps out of their comfort zone, yay. 
If that moves them to change things up in their own lives or with their own circumstances that’s a good good thing.
Because WHY,
A rising tide lifts all the boats 🚣‍♀️
Go get ‘em friends.
Chin up. 
We got this xxx

WHY? ( part 2) 
Why am I doing the food styling courses?
*
“I had no idea there was even a job called food styling. “
This is what I told a local journalist when she interviewed me about my food styling courses. 
I mentioned in a previous post that I was approached by a national food magazine to work for them.
16 years ago.
I knew I could cook, I knew I had a good eye for design, and style. and I knew that I had plenty of passion and commitment.
what I didn’t know was how to start, how to learn this “art” how to even do my “job” 
No Pinterest, instagram, or YouTube to help me. 
Trail and error. 
7 years later I moved from editorial styling to full time commercial styling. 
Advertising. Billboards. Television commercials.
And still no one to train me, teach me, or even share with me.
I figured it all out.
Trail, error, and way way too many frustrated tears.
Why ? after all this hard-work, headache and heartache would I want to now teach others.
Why ? ’’spill the beans” why risk giving “it” all away.
Why potentially teach myself out of “work” or a “ job”
🤔
My big why, is why not?
Why not share so that others with passion and enthusiasm don’t have to struggle like I did.
Why not create a community that recognizes and supports creativity over competition.
Why not give to others what I never had, resources, information, and connection.
Why not support others so that they don’t have to struggle alone.
Thats my WHY ! 🙌🏻
why dont you join me ?
Double tap and show some ❤️

I’m sharing a page from my recently acquired recipe book that I showed in stories , not only in the hope that my continual breaking of my New Years resolution to not buy any more recipes books will be overlooked, BUT that these beautiful words by the chef and author Liezie Mulder words will resonate with you as much as they have with me.
🍪
Sophisticated imperfection and a balanced stride 🙌🏻
I’m so down with that !
🌼
Happy Sundaying beautiful friends

Friday Favourites!
@leighherringer , @ang_richardson, @tanyakovarsky 
You’re my favs any day of the week, but I’m using #fridayfavourites as an opportunity to say 
Thank you 😘
Friends I recently recounted my story of how I came to be a food stylist to a local journalist. 
When I was approached by a national food magazine ( 16 yrs ago - gulp!) I had no idea there was an actual job called “food styling” I was fortunate, or lucky, I say blessed to meet 2 ladies who literally changed the course of my life, and they in turn introduced me to a whole lot of other amazing people. They are my Caxton ladies, from day one my biggest supporters, enthusiasts and encouragers, always willing to applaud me in whatever I do, right up until today with a feature by the awesome @kymargo in the @get_it_joburg_north magazine ☺️
Friends this is not a humble brag. 
This is a sincere and heartfelt shout out to some very special people whom I deeply value.
Today I read an awesome quote “ empowered woman, empower women “ 
It totally inspired me to write this !
🙌🏻
Tag two people in the comments you want to give a shout out to! 👊🏻
Ps. The black garlic is my current fav ingredient- but by no means a reflection on my lovely ladies that I mention them in the same post as garlic.
😂
Happy Friday friends
I’m grateful to you to !
😘

Friends you don’t have to figure it out alone. ☕️
You can have access to all my experience, information and expertise.
🍩
Whether it’s feeling stuck creatively, or lacking purpose and vision in your creative business, I’ve been there, I’ve faced the same or similar challenges.
🍪
You’re not alone. 
We’ve got this!
🍂
Today I met for a session with an awesome entrepreneur. She has big juicy goals, she is looking to transition her existing food related business into something more.
We broke down the steps she needs to take, created a frame work for her goals and enjoyed a yummy biscuit and a coffee.
It was inspiring 
It was creative 
And it’s available to you too.
