You’re anything but ordinary.

My favourite shows are Sex & the City & Grey’s Anatomy. There are a few that come close but these are the two I always go back to; I’m not quite sure what brings me the most comfort.

I am, yet again, in the middle of Grey’s Anatomy. It’s S10 & so much has changed for all the characters, we’ve laughed & cried along the way, but the one thing that stays constant is the burning desire to be “the sun”, to be extraordinary… it’s played on my mind much more now & I think it’s because of the changes I’ve had in my own life.

We plan, we organise & try our best, knowing that things hardly go according to plan – in my case this is so painfully true. I grew a little more last year, I stretched, I sometimes broke; I hurt, healed, laughed & came to a place I didn’t quite recognise – I think this is what letting go really looks like. I took a look at my life, seeing how hard I tried in all areas to be everything everyone needed me to be & still felt like I fell just short of enough. Thinking back to that time, it could’ve been 5 years ago instead of 5 months- I’m not her anymore.

In my Instagram post a today I mention time. In The Word time is a biblical principle, in any belief system the principle of timing seems constant, – at the right time, time heals, give it time… but what if we aren’t aware when the time has come? I don’t think there’s a day you wake up & we’re just ready, I think we become ready on the road. I’ve made a few difficult decisions in January, however, these choices are necessary to support who I’m becoming, how I want to feel & how I want people to feel around me & at our little happy place 🥰

There’s nothing ordinary about you. You are indeed extraordinary. What/who do you need to let go of to see yourself as you really are? To look at yourself with eyes of kindness & the knowledge that whatever you put your mind to is achievable.

Extraordinary service is something that is so close to my heart, the way you’re welcomed, how your therapist explains things to you, a treatment full of intent & attention to detail. What are things that would make your experience extraordinary to you?

I’m so glad that I’ve had the privilege to build the kind of business culture that makes my staff want to be at work & makes my clients feel like part of the family. I believe it’s all because we are striving daily to be extraordinary.

Do it. Be extraordinary, the time is now.

so here’s the plan…

It’s no secret that I don’t look my age, it’s something I’m rather proud of but can’t take all the credit for. My mother blessed me with some great genes- thanks mom!

Up until last year I had no signs of ageing, no crow’s feet when I smiled- nada. Then, one day I woke up & it was there… sadness & sagging 🥴 Being in the skincare industry has taught me that the way we see our own skin is often very different to what others see. Voicing my concern to my therapists only got me a neverminded “you seeing things” reply. These people are not taking my trauma seriously!

This is just a reminder that you never need someone to agree with you before doing something for yourself, something that will help to fix a concern you have. So here’s the plan; I have decided to do a course of needling & anti-age treatments over the next 2 months so if any of you walk into the shop & it looks like I was walking on the road on my face, just smile & say “you’re really committed to this journey aren’t you” I thank you in advance.🙏

I’ve always had the greatest passion for skincare, only difference is, in the past I was into all things acne because of my personal struggle with the villain, now I’m heavy on all things anti-ageing. A few years ago I had the privilege of going to visit the Matis Paris head office, (& also an international Ballroom competition at Disneyland Paris 💃) I was around 34 at the time.

I was given the newly launched OleaScience serum as a gift but I was too young to use it at the time so my gorgeous mom used it before it was launched in SA. I was reminded of the benefits of this serum when I realized it’s just what my skin needs. This serum increases the synthesis of Klotho proteins in fibroblasts, therefore promoting the production of collagen. Yep, that stuff that is like the cement holding all the skin cells together. This luxury (& slightly addictive I’m told) serum has precious oils that protect & regenerate the skin, it’s rich in antioxidants & Omegas 3.6 & 9! It’s a firm, resounding “YES” from me. I cannot wait to start it! For best results you would use 2-4 drops morning & evening for 21-28 days.
