LIONESS DAY

Never did I think my heart could get so big and all at the same time feel like such a small human. Motherhood has been my greatest undoing, my most beautiful adventure.

Humans learn through patterns, and through a pattern that has taken shape in my life by the likes of the most consistent love I have ever come to know I have found myself in a beautiful place of connection.

THE MT NELSON HOTEL

A stunning alchemy of childhood charm, tea cups, Beverly Hills, ridiculously wild imagination, Alice in wonderland, dusty pink hues, Cali palms, quaint cakes, whispering temperaments, tall and polite postures and secret paths to many secret gardens --- all in the land of Africa!

I'M NOT IN A HURRY

Centuries ago, anyone with a desire to explore exotic flavours and experiences would have needed to wait for the seasonal return of the traders travelling the Spice Route.

WHAT IS YOUR NOW?

Smell the peonies with a pocket full of mountain tops. Let us not grow restless walking around with a silhouette shadowing the beauty of a slow dance. Let the slow be your catapult into a sky of momentum.

ROMANCE

“Conscious choices of love over time, become culture”. --- Through the eyes of my 7 year old self I remember setting my eyes on the horizon of my future, picturing love, sketching "dear diary" about it, and wishing upon a star. I knew I was made for a life long romance.

DISCOVER BEAUTY.

There’s this beautiful one-liner I fell in love with in proverbs that says, “Discover beauty in everyone.” This phrase defines everything I want to live my life by.
