My journey

I grew up on a farm in Ceres. After school, I left for Stellenbosch and received my diploma at Isa Carstens Health and Skincare Academy in 2005. In 2006 came the opportunity to start my career working as a facial specialist for Steiner Leisure Ltd on Celebrity Cruises. I always dreamed of opening my own salon. After my return to South Africa, I started working as a receptionist at Attorneys and soon worked my way up to being their bookkeeper. I started missing beauty and decided to do treatments from home. During this time I went for several courses in skincare, makeup and hair styling. In 2014, after living my dream, part-time, I got the opportunity to turn my dream into reality by living my dream full-time.

My passion

People would say to me "why on earth would you leave a day job to work any day, all day, every day"? Well, my answer is simple: " I have not worked for a day since I left my full-time job." When you love what you do and combine it with passion for what you do, then you will never work a day in your life. I take pride in my work and always strive to give my best.

Thank you

I would never be able to live my dream if it was not for my family standing next to me. I thank the Lord for giving me, such great family. I would like to thank my husband, my Mom, my Dad in Heaven, my 2 brothers and my 2 sister-in-laws for always helping me, believing in me and supporting me. A big thank you to all my clients that came this far with me. Looking forward to many more years.

All my love
