I've lost count of how bikini shoots I've done. From being Fashion Editor at Saltwater GIRL magazine, then Editor, then moving to Mr Price and working on their Red beach brand. I've spent many a winter-morning-sunrise, dressing freezing cold models into little pieces of lycra and sending them off onto the beach to look fab...and not cold! The brief is always the same "Girl on the beach, having fun...but different to last year's campaign, but still within our brand identity and lets make it look authentic". So yes, even I need new inspiration when shooting bikinis. I loved this shoot from Stab Magazine. It's tres risky but I love the natural light and whimsical feel.

Absolutely Ga-Ga for this collection. It screams spring with pastels, soft flowing fabris and lace dresses. I'm also totally in love with the gladiator sandals from the show which means I can keep shopping for my favourite sandal. I hate T-Bars...

Because I usually have a car filled with product for shoots or am shopping for someone else; I don't get a lot of time to actually shop for myself. I've been addicted to shopping online since my first ottoman was delivered by a friendly man who carried it into my house and plonked it exactly where I wanted it. It's no mess no fuss and not enough South Africans are doing it! I've brought all 4 of the above items (scatter cushion, black felt placement, faux fur blanket and table lamp) from Mr Price Home and this might be the best part...my husband hasn't even noticed! So there's no "WTF another scatter cushion" conversations. Best!

As we head into winter we start shooting summer campaigns. To help keep my creative juices flowing I constantly keep an eye on international fashion editorials for ideas and inspiration. This year when I think of summer I can't move past this Vogue Brazil shoot with Rhianna from last year. It ticks so many boxes. It gets me so excited to shoot some summer glam... even if its cold outside xxx

What most people don't realise is that before a creative team embark on big new projects we often have to do a 'test shoot' to iron out all the finer details. Couldn't be more excited to be test shooting with these 2 love birds #mikey297 and #gabizzard this week.

And we going to rock it, like only us Durban girls can do. While the ladies in CPT and Jozi will be layered up in coats and knits we'll be effortlessly cool in lace, tee-shirt dresses, off the shoulder tops, wide brimmed hats, kimonos and ripped denim. Cos that's how we roll xxx
