The catalyst for launching my blog was made up of two components that run smoothly side by side.
1/ The blog would give my Brisbane styling business credibility (which turned in to clients).
2/ As the blogging stylist, I took personal styling online by becoming an Affiliate Marketer (or a shoppable blog).
I love setting up shots for organic posts. And the beach location shots are my all time fav (of course!). On my last trip I was even styling coconuts and coral on the beach…!
Definitely website building.
I went through four web developers, two web platforms, three web hosts and a very expensive shopping platform fail. To be honest, I almost threw in the towel, but I started using vision boards to get a clear picture in my own head of exactly what I wanted and how it would look.
Success followed, and so I still use vision boards for work and personal life.
Yes I definitely have days when I feel flat or uninspired.
I don’t always catch myself immediately, but if I need to “reset” myself, I use meditation. That normally ends up with some fast scribbling on my vision boards.
My daily trick to feeling good is going to bed happy, and waking up happy. I add to that, walking the dog, getting my morning coffee fix, doing 15 minutes of yoga, and meditation or breathing before I hit the shower.
Keeping it personable. It’s about my style, and it’s like my followers are on a journey with me, so I always write in the first person.
Putting myself in the lime-light! Eeek! That was scary! I still have my moments – but they don’t last long any more.
I believe style should be natural, and substance can’t be faked.
The message goes far beyond fashion for me. It comes from the soul; a good feeling place to be.
It is truthful, real and fun.
