MY STYLE

Is relaxed, natural, fresh and romantic.

 I create pictures that express feeling and emotion. 

I love warm moments and pure happiness.

 

WHAT AM I LIKE?

I’M  WARM, BUBBLY, AND APPRECIATE PRETTY DETAILS, STUNNING SETTINGS, AND MAGICAL MOMENTS.

COSYING UP ON THE COUCH IS MY SOLITUDE. SEEING KINDNESS MAKES ME HUMBLE. BEING WITH MY FAMILY CHALLENGES ME TO BE THE BEST ME I CAN BE.

I VALUE PEOPLE, LOVE ANYTHING CREATIVE, ITCH TO TRAVEL OFTEN AND HAVE LEARNED TO DARE TO DREAM A LITTLE.

Your wedding day will be a huge success, not because of a gourmet starter, booking the perfect band, or a dress that costs a small fortune, but because you will be declaring an unending love. Because for a moment the world stops around you, while the people who love you the most cheer you on and celebrate with you. It’s a moment you will treasure forever!
— My response when asked what advice I'd give to a bride and groom

GETTING TO KNOW ME

I LOVE THE SMELL OF:

coffee (but don’t actually drink it), the air just before it starts to rain, sunscreen in summer, cinnamon buns (it tastes even better if you smell each bite), lavender wafting through my house in spring, Christmas (the tree, the candles, the food), thatch roofs (they remind me of a holiday spot we to went to, growing up)

I LOVE THE SOUND OF:

kiddies giggling, thunderstorms (they make me want to snuggle), popcorn popping, my husbands car pulling up the driveway, the intro music to movies, nature’s noises when I’m out of the city, my daughter sleeping deeply, waves rhythmically washing up on the beach, the timer when I’m waiting for baked goodies to come out the oven.

YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW: 

When I was young we had bunnies, that had lots of baby bunnies – one of my favorite childhood memories.

I never used to eat coriander, basil or rocket, I now load my plate with them.

I cry easily when I see something beautiful or heartbreaking (yes even movies, especially movies).

I absolutely hate to lose things, it freaks me out.

I’m a sucker for anything that comes in a kit or prepackaged, I can’t resist.

I like to be organised and make lots of lists, and try to remember not take myself too seriously. 

I’d swop slippers for high heels any day.

I get so distracted watching people reunite at the arrival hall in the airport, its beautiful how they drop their bags and for a few seconds aren’t aware who is around them.

The way geckos move make me squirm.

I absolutely love doing anything creative, it fuels me. I’ll often make cards, presents or draw scribbles and turn them into people or things.

After eating low carb, I have a bunch of go-to recipes (after trying many), which has turned into a little side project www.bantinghub.co.za (UPDATE: It's now on pause, while I become a mom for a second time round and will get some love soon)

 I love finding out about different pieces of jewellery people wear or where it came from, theres almost always a cool story attached or a reason why its special.

Thanks for spending some time with me, have beautiful day!
