Friends I have been chuckling about this all week.
☺️
Any other planners out there?
.
I find knowing my Meyer-Briggs personality type very liberating!
I saw this quote on a cute app I downloaded called PersonalityMatch.
I’m a ISTJ 
Introvert ( this surprises people)
Sensitive ( ha no surprises there)
Thinking ( 🤔)
Judging ( can we substitute discerning rather ? ) 🤗
I’d love to know your type ... drop me a comment 👇🏻

I spent sometime today practicing my photography.
📷 
It was such fun, although I do find it very hard work.
😓
Half the problem is that I hold my breath, and then I’m out of breath and light headed.
🤪
How was your day friends ? .

Friends I spent the better part of today repacking my props & storeroom ( for the umpteenth time ) in particular my cutlery.
( see stories for behind the scenes) 
The thing that struck me was that my Capsule Prop Cupboard Cheatsheet is TOTALLY the way to go !
Especially if you are starting out in styling, there simply is NO need for dozens of plates and other props. 
Often it just becomes money sitting on a dusty shelf, rather focus on a few good pieces that you can reuse and build on if necessary.
In my course- the art of food styling using food and props I cover the role of props, you can sign up via link in profile to get the cheatsheet and be informed when the courses launch .

Oh my word friends I’ve had the TV on since 8am ! 
I just love a royal wedding-
👰 🇬🇧 I love all the pomp and ceremony!
I can’t wait for the carriages, horses, pageantry and voting for Prince Harry ( the new Duke of Sussex ) to go full military uniform.

The C word
And it’s not cancer, but it might as well be, it’s just as deadly.
Comparison
Oh it’s a mind-messer that one ....
.
I’m not thin enough .
I’m not smart enough
.
I’m not pretty enough
.
I’m not talented enough
.
Here’s the thing friends-
You’re more than enough 
JUST THE WAY YOU ARE !
.
I was you 15, heck 5 years ago, comparing my work to other stylists, wondering if I would ever be enough. 
Stop comparing yourself, your gifts, talents and abilities to someone who isn’t you.
It’s only going to make you more miserable and insecure.
I know.
Because I’ve been there.
Comparing, and wishing, and around and the hamster goes on the wheel..
Not getting anywhere.
.
You want to be a food stylist, and that’s enough!

What’s your favorite thing to bake ? 🍪 
Cake?
Biscuits/ Cookies ?
Tarts ?
🍪
Mine is definitely chocolate brownies! 
I have my own recipe which I developed over 10 years ago. 
I haven’t used it in a while because I’m currently loving the recipe by @ottolenghi in his book Sweet , after I attended a demo by fellow foodie ( and brilliant baker )  @julielindheim, I’m literally baking them weekly, it’s almost therapeutic.
🍪
Do you try new recipes?
Or stick to tried and tested ? .
Happy #worldbakingday friends.
Hope it’s filled with all things delicious!
😋

Happy dance!
💃🏼 Friends - If I wasn’t so stiff from gym on Monday 😩 this would be me !
💃🏼
So I’m mentally spinning and jumping with joy because the studio space has been secured and the dates are confirmed for my first Food Styling Workshop - the signature experience, an insider look at how I run my professional food styling business from quoting, to pre-prod to execution of the brief.
💃🏼

Batch cookin’ for the win!
🙌🏻
This morning I spent a couple of hours prepping and cooking meals for the week and the freezer.
👍🏻
I’m feeling all satisfied with myself and it really helps me to be more organized and intentional about my eating.
( and I really dislike grocery shopping)
🛒 
Today was also my first day back at gym in over a month ( yikes) and I realized that although it wasn’t ideal to take such a long break, sometimes it’s okay to just press pause.
Pause.
Not give up or get totally derailed, as I would have done in the past but just pause, and then start again.
It feels good.
It was a good Monday!
Here’s to a good week friends-
😘
Do you cook ahead or prepare meals daily ?

Two of my favorite words ...
Saturday morning !
.
Wow this week flew by.  It felt good to be back in a routine, although I’m really missing my MasterChef AU fix every evening 😐
.
My S has a play date today with a friend from pre-school whom we haven’t seen all year ... cue non stop talking 😆
I might be seen wearing these 🎧 .

Hey friends ! I’m literally doing a happy dance around the house.
A back to school happy dance.
💃🏼
I can think again! 
I can focus again!
👍🏻
Anyone else feel like this when it’s back to school ? .
