Had the best time being part of a panel discussion at last night's sold-out #NZBWN event talking all things social media and business. I so enjoyed meeting the audience and chatting with these other entrepreneurial gurus who are making some MAJOR waves here and all over the world! From tech start ups to fashion bags! Thanks NZBWN for always providing such a great platform and network for women in the business community here in London to thrive and be inspired.
Some tips from lastnight:
👉 be consistent in your social media postings
👉 know your market and think of the customer
👉 sometimes serendipitous moments come from a series of lots of little moments
👉 play the long game & take risks
👉 Facebook ads are apparently very effective!😭
What are your ideas that you want to turn to reality....?

This leopard DOES change her spots from time to time...🐈🐾 As an entrepreneur, and a person always aiming for personal growth & trying new things, I think this is important. Though I'm not saying it's easy!
I'm excited to be on the panel at the New Zealand Women's Business Network social media & the new face of entrepreneurship event on Wednesday night in Covent Garden! #honoured & #humbled to be asked!!!
Monday Tip: always challenge yourself to try new things, change doesn't come from comfort. If you want to hear more I hope you can come. I'd love to meet some of you! Check stories for ticket link✔️ #globalentrepreneurshipweek

Lazing round on Sunday morning reading the latest "Press" zine & sipping from my #AllpressArita porcelain cup. @allpressespresso ☕🙋 Ps: To the man who sold me this beautiful floor-length vintage Japanese kimono, and suggested I could even wear it as around as a "house coat"... I'm sorry for scoffing at you - I LOVE my fabulous kimono "house coat"! 😂 #whynot ?🤷

Sometimes I'm described as a little bit 'fruity'...😬😂 🍈🍊🍋🍎🍏🍐🍑🥝
There are many flavours in a #coffeeflavorwheel ...here's just a few of them! When you drink coffee can you taste them all?☕
This week in the TGITC lab (aka kitchen) I've been experimenting & developing a lot of drink recipes with coffee & @davincigourmet_emea classic flavor range. I've been blown away and my taste buds have been in overdrive 🤗
Did you know, we have five basic tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami (savory) and several thousand taste buds in our mouths. The number varies from person to person; between around 2000 and 10,000!! Taste buds are not limited to your tongue; they can be found in the roof and walls of your mouth, throat, and esophagus....hence why we do that attractive slurp when cupping coffee to cover all bases!😂

All the feels 🎶🎤
I'd almost forgotten how great it feels to go to an indie gig...! Who else knows how this feels ?!
I used to work with @christofvanderven ! Years ago he was a chef at a cafe I managed. Great to see you again mate!! I'm sure I gave him shit in our cafe days together BC I'm a (low voice) "serious hospo professional" 😂...but it was amazing to see him perform again. I find the most interesting people have many talents, interests and hobbies outside of their day job and it's so great to see his talent & passion take centre stage as it should bc his sound is 👼🙌💛 (see stories).
I miss the good ol' days of our cafe banter & I'm so proud to see him doing his thing. I'll enjoy the vinyl too! 😘 I'm always inspired by people who work hard and follow their passion. Fyi he should be on the radio!! @bbcradio1
The band was 🙌🙌🙌 too

In order to get out of a 'funk' I've joined a (really affordable) gym. YES. A GYM 😖I haven't joined one for years, mainly BC I prefer the outdoors... Last May was the last time I was in a gym when I embarked on a 12 week PT challenge with @holistichealthfitnesstherapist What an amazing eye-opening experience I had with her! 🙌
I was fit, my skin was glowing, my mind & energy was on 🔥🔥🔥AND I lost 6 INCHES off my waist! Coffee also played a huge part (of course). Since then I've surprised myself by maintaining regular exercise AND having a fun, interesting & balanced low-carb diet (so much easier than I thought). BUT over the past few months with all my projects, travelling and work commitments I've let things slip, indulged & slacked off a bit on the training leaving me feeling both mentally & physically lethargic. I've got so much I wanna do & achieve this year and next, so I'm ramping it back up and getting my mind & body back on track so I can SLAY EVERYDAY!!
Keep following for updates on progress & I'll be sharing more tips & recipes as I go.
But my best advice is to work on goals (whatever they are) a little each day, not to let things slip out of control BC it's harder to get back on top of a ladder from the very bottom, rather than starting from a few rungs up already...
Now go slay 💙
Ps: (More details on my TGITC blog on my training with Penélope from @holistichealthfitnesstherapist if you're interested) xx

Proud of myself for hauling my hungover ass to see @allthedevilsmen preview!! It was worth it bc there's nothing better than seeing a film at the cinema on the big screen - especially when it's the first bigtime movie a good friend has produced @amoryleader ! I've seen the ups & downs and the hard work he's put in, which shows if you want to do something go hard and make it a reality!
It's something special for the cast, crew and friends to see it for the FIRST time Today with real audience reactions to boot! I remember having this experience myself with some films I've acted in too, and it feels pretty incredible. Film making is such an amazing collaborative and rewarding process & experience.🎉
@allthedevilsmen is being released in cinemas all over the USA next month and from February you can see it in the UK on @netflixuk & VOD. Make sure you see it. It's action-packed and if you like old skool films like Predator or Kubrick, and martial arts you'll notice some hommage/nods here with an awesome score too! (he co scored it as well!).
Who else has friends they're proud of? Tag them below to let them know you support them & got their back 🤗
Great performances @milogibson @sylviahoeks

I don't give the French press as much love as it should get. I think in the past people would use too much bad coffee, and leave it steeping for way too long so it got a bitter rap. But with the right amount of good coffee, it's so easy and tasty. The best thing about this method is that the grind is coarse so it doesn't need too much scrutiny!
I'm so excited to have added this @hariouk olive wood caffetiere to my webshop!! (Amongst some other awesome things) So have a browse & have a stylish moment like this 💛

Pumpkin spiced latte recipe!🎃👻
It's cold outside so today I spent it inside carving pumpkins and thought, why not make your own spiced pumpkin latte at home instead of going out!
So I made a pumpkin spiced latte with my @melitta_uk Cremio for you to make at home or in the cafe too! It's super easy!
Put 1T Pumpkin or butternut puree into the Melitta Cremio.
(You can buy it in cans or just boil it up yourself like I did, blend & sieve)
• Add milk to the Cremio 'max' line with 1/2 tsp spice mix (I made my own: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, all spice & ginger).
• Press the 'on' button! It's amazing bc it's mixing, heating and foaming the milk ingredients all at the same time!! (If you don't have a Cremio you could put it all into a pot on the stove and whisk it up)
• Prepare a glass with Espresso or a capsule coffee if you have that.
• Pour the hot milk mix into the espresso and VOILA!! Delicious, autumnal & fun.
• Garnished with some spice, toaster Marshmellows and decorated with leaves of a dying coffee plant 😭☕
If you need some sweetness add 10ml maple syrup
(I actually boiled the pumpkin with some of by @davincigourmet_emea vanilla syrup!)

You can probably tell from my IGstories that I love to cook, bake, experiment & EAT!
I haven't made these in a while, but there's something quite therapeutic about making & wrapping wontons. EVEN BETTER eating them! (Vege versions for vegetarian friends with tofu and replace the pork are 👌 too)
My mum is QWEEN Wongton, but I figure she's got a *few extra years on me is all...😂 Does that make me a princess??
How many can you eat in a sitting? Are you a wonton-noodle soup kinda person? Or fried with (homemade) sweet & sour sauce? I did it all!😋 (See stories)
Give it a go!
I'm going to try make dumplings this weekend...😬

Feelin' pretty good/healthy here (even doing this dick pose) a few months back - mentally and physically.
In the past I've suffered from stress, anxiety and insomnia. I've become pretty good at managing it , but the last few weeks/months have been crazy & I've noticed it creeping back in.
Sometimes it can still be really challenging, but apart from coffee, two good habits that I've quite recently developed over the last year that has helped immensely, is regular exercise and eating a balanced (generally low-carb) diet. That really works for me. I never knew until I tried! It's hard though BC I'm lazy AND Asian (I love rice, noodles, chips )🤔😂 It generally takes major effort from me, at least initially. But luckily my will is strong....
This is a reminder to myself (and to anyone else who is feeling the effects of winter or anything else creeping in) to dig-in & stick with the habits that make you FEEL good no matter what, bc when your mind & body are good, ANYTHING is possible!!! 👊🤓
What are YOUR go-to habits???🤷🏻♀️
