Joburg: Consulting Sessions / SOLD OUT

As I happily announced on social media - I will be in Joburg for one day of consulting next week. Sessions are limited and I have listed out the details below, but feel free to email me if you need more insight.

HELLO JOBURG - it's finally your turn! Let's get to work on your creative businesses, mindsets and goals!

Here are a few more facts regarding the consulting sessions:
My one on one consulting sessions are my most popular service and I personally really enjoy them. They are run with a firm focus on creativity with purpose. I pride myself in truly going the extra mile and offering my clients a calming experience to take care of their business needs. Clients are guaranteed discreet, confidential service at all times. 

It's a dedicated time for business owners to share their thoughts, ask questions and receive my professional input on different areas of their business. It's also ideal for creatives who are still working on deciding what business to begin or how to take it to the next level. They run for up to ninety minutes and usually work either via Q&A or brainstorming, but can also take the form of a lesson if need be.

The Pink Party: Durban

*Update: Read all about the Durban Pink Party here.

Pink! Party! Um... yes please! I am delighted to be joining Anzel and a host of lovely local creatives this week for The Pink Party. It makes me so happy when our city is visited by awesome businesses and in this case Anzel of White Kite Studio will be sharing her knowledge and beautiful workshop with us!
I will be joining the workshop on Day Two as an invited guest to share more about "Creating a Brand Experience". I am so honoured to be taking part and sharing my insights on one of my FAVOURITE subjects.


The Pink Party is a place for creative entrepreneurs to network, learn and get inspired. It’s an intensive 3 day workshop designed to get you focused, motivated and armed with a plan to take your brand from sad to rad in no time! Whether you’re just starting out or already have a brand, I invite you to spend three days with me and get yourself on the road to beautifully branded success and making more money doing what you love.

Branding small creative businesses is my absolute passion, and I love being able to share my knowledge and experience with other creatives. You will be learning and connecting with fellow business owners while I inspire you with the power of branding and digital marketing, all in a beautiful environment over some good food and drinks. I’ll show you how to map out your goals and strategies, create an experience for your customers and network, market and brand yourself for success.
See more photos and details here - lots of pretty things to see.

It was lovely to meet Anzel in Cape Town recently - she is ever so graceful. Being able to connect with like-minded business owners who are aiming to help and guide fellow creatives is always a treat. 
Her latest addition to her business are the most beautiful planners and I can't wait to add one to my desk and organising. Take a look here.

I will be sure to share a few snaps on Wednesday and what makes it even better is that several of my clients will be attending too and have helped to add a special touch or two to the workshop. Time to (pink) party (corny - I know, but I couldn't resist).

July Jaunt with Forever New

Rock a pretty dress, get to have fun, wear a crown! Um... yes please, sign me up. Forever New invited me to this year's Vodacom Durban July for a bit of dressing up splendour. I in turn invited Sabrina, (Fashion Nanny) client and friend along to enjoy the style spotting with me. It was so lovely to be able to go in store, riffle through the rails, try on outfits and then decide on what to wear - like our very own walk in wardrobe. 

I opted for the beautifully constructed Lindsay Lace Prom Dress, paired with the Serena Single Breasted Coat in the colour "mulled wine" (mmmm sounds good). It was a very cold day so I was so glad to add a hint of stylish warmth to the dress. I don't do well in the cold and I don't like being a fashion victim either - so coat on it was. The item that made me the happiest was the crochet crown, which just so happened to be called the "Nadia Crown" - fashion fate. My leather Campo Marzio clutch was the perfect companion for stashing a few race day essentials. Sabrina wore the Lydia Prom Dress in Pink Whisp - that colour sounds almost edible. She styled her look with boots and a harder edge which made for a unique look. Overall we had a really wonderful time people watching, outfit spotting and deciding which horses we thought would win - based purely on their names (obviously) - pretty smart if you ask me.

Special thanks to the lovely Forever New team and to photographer Marlon Nero for snapping our outfits.

The talk and opening day of Decorex just so happens to be my birthday. I arrive in Joburg the day before so I will wake up in the city on my birthday and to celebrate - I would love to connect with as many creatives as possible, considering I won't be with Daniel or my family. To celebrate even further, I will have four special gifts for the first (four) blog readers who pop by to say hello and attend the talk. I'll be hanging around a bit earlier - so stop by, say hello and let's chat. You are also most welcome to come and ask me your most pressing creative business questions. I will be available to chat after my talk - plenty of time for us to catch up, so please don't be shy. See you soon!
