From an early age I knew I wanted to do something creative! Having grown up with parents involved in the advertising industry I soon developed a passion for styling and design. (I used to love watching my dad on big TV commercials, admiring the stylists and make-up artists!)
After a course in make up and special effects, I joined Marie Claire Magazine where I cut my teeth with some of the industry’s best feature writers and fashion editors. ( I owe great thanks to René Reay Reeves and Giselle Hon for being the most incredible mentors!)
In 2004 I made the decision to go on my own as a freelance stylist and gained clients such as American Swiss Jewellery, Truworths, Cameo, Triumph, Yardley, J&B Met, Shape Magazine, Oprah Magazine and many more.
Later I started blogging as an outlet for my creativity, sharing with readers a little ‘ insight’ into the fashion and decor industry. Soon this hobby became a passion, thus turning it into a business.
So, welcome to my blog! (My baby!)
