Monday ! ⠀
It doesn’t feel like Monday to me.⠀
I’m still feeling icky-sicky 😷😢⠀
With my head cold ⠀
I’ve tried Olbas oil and Eucalyptus to clear it but it’s still lingering 😐⠀
Oh and BTW Corenza with Para tastes disgusting! ⠀
🍀⠀
So yesterday I didn’t manage to shoot all the recipes I hoped to, but that’s okay, lesson learnt on how much I can get done on my own.⠀
🌿⠀
I suffer from time optimism, I always think I can do more in a certain amount of time.⠀
☘️⠀
And speaking of time, it’s about time I sort out my store room ( again) 🙄 I have about 3 weeks of props still in crates that need to be unpacked ..⠀
😱⠀
Happy Monday friends ..⠀
What are you up to today ?⠀
👇🏻⠀

Today was Garden Day in South Africa so I’ve written a blog post about the beautiful gardens and interior at Blueberry Cafe in the Natal Midlands.⠀
I know, I know ! I’ve been a busy bee today ⠀

This marks my 1000th post on IG⠀
I know it’s not huge by some, but for me it feels like a whole lot !⠀
So I’m marking it with this image which was the shoot that changed everything for me in October last year.⠀
A big turning point for me in my food styling and my business.⠀
.⠀
Do you have any special moments that changed your trajectory ? ⠀

I have a question for you ? ⠀
Are you bringing your A game.⠀
I don’t mean in a fake IG world of “look at me” ⠀
I mean in your own life.⠀
Are you showing up⠀?
At you present ?
Are you grateful for whatever you do and don’t have ?⠀
Are you living your best life, Yours, not some wannabe social media sclebs.
.⠀
The participants on the professional food styling workshop last week blew me away at how they brought their A game !⠀
They all showed up, engaged, participated, made connections, became friends, shared ideas, motivated and encouraged one another.⠀
No two alike, each unique and individual, each with their own views and interpretations of the material before them for the practical styling session.⠀
They committed to the course, committed to the exercises and the results were evident by the amazing results in the photographs produced.⠀
.⠀
So I ask again ...⠀
Are you bring you A game to your own life, are you committed, engaged and passionately pursuing your own life ( whatever it may look like ) are you embracing your individuality, and taking ownership of who you are ?⠀
.⠀
This is one of the images from the workshop, styled by @tumi_mushi And photographed by the amazing @nataliesheltonphoto .
Happy Wednesday folks.
Go be YOU !
I’m rooting for you 🙌🏻

A photographer I wanted to work with didn’t think I was cool enough ⠀
So he stood me up⠀

A client I really wanted to work didn’t think I was cheap enough 
So they got someone who was ⠀
A PR company I was was working with didn’t think I was capable enough ⠀
So they dropped me ⠀
⠀
To them and every other person who has not seen my worth and my value ⠀
I say THANK YOU !⠀
Because of you I found strength, motivation and chutzpah to do it myself .⠀
.⠀
Listen to me folks, nobody gets to tell you who you can or can not be ..⠀
If you want that dream⠀
Go for it ! ⠀
I here cheering for you 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻⠀

This is me today ! ⠀
Beyond myself with gratitude after an amazing first day yesterday of my professional food styling course.⠀
We had such an amazing amazing all star cast- who shared so generously their knowledge and experience.⠀
@nataliesheltonphoto a producer and lifestyle photographer shared about her experience producing on multi-million Rand shoots with awarding winning photographers.⠀
.⠀
@tumi_mushi, Food Editor of True Love Magazine spoke about magazines and what editors expect from stylists, and gave insight into the world of magazines and television shows.⠀
.⠀
And I presented on my experience over the past 16 years working on both commercial and editorial shoots.⠀
.⠀
I am blown away by the participants and their eagerness to learn - what a rewarding experience this is! ⠀
