We recently met up with the phenomenal Joy Proctor, a wedding stylist and coordinator from Santa Barbara in the US. I have been admiring Joy’s work for some time, so it was so wonderful to meet her in person on her visit to South Africa. Joy’s work has graced the pages of many magazines and blogs, and she was also the stylist for the Style Me Pretty Book cover.

This Valentines Day will mark the 1 year anniversary of working with the fabulous food team from The Pretty Blog, Nicola and Tasha. I wrote my first post for TPB exactly one year ago for a dark chocolate tart with fresh berries, and we felt so exhilarated with the results of our very first picture!
About a year ago we moved from a two-bedroom cottage to a bigger three bedroom home. I was really excited about all the extra space, however once we moved in, our house felt so empty. All of a sudden there were big open walls that was desperate for a few decorations. And the thing is, it’s not something you do overnight.
When was the last time you heard someone call out “teatime!” Clanking noises in the kitchen herald that yummy cup of afternoon tea alongside tasty teatime tarts and other temptations. Whether you prefer your tea black served with honey and a slice of lemon or well steeped with a dash of steamed milk, tea has a comforting, soothing effect that has stood the test of time.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner, in fact, it’s very hard not to notice the commercial burst of red displays everywhere. This year however, we decided to celebrate romance by embracing the concept of beauty.
