Ostatnio zmieniałam wygląd mojej strony Internetowej. Ile to było pracy! Ktoś projektował kiedyś własną stronę i wdrażał wszystko sam? 🙆♀️🙆♀️ W tym tygodniu udało mi się dokończyć stronę na temat mojego kursu projektowania wzorów. Na stronie znajdziecie aktualnie: opis, informacje na temat umiejętności, które zdobędziecie podczas kursu, projekty wzorów, które stworzyły moje kursantki, opinie moich kursantek i wiele więcej. Jeżeli chcecie dowiedzieć się więcej, zapraszam do zobaczenia strony kursu i całej nowej strony Merely Susan - link w bio (Menu-Nauka-Kurs projektowania wzorów). Każda opinia na temat strony będzie dla mnie bardzo cenna. Dobrego dnia dla Was! ❤️ PS: Na blogu opublikowałam wczoraj nowy artykuł na temat ważnego etapu każdego procesu projektowego.
Sharing a clever saying I overheard on my favorite true crime podcast.
It’s originally Armenian, and roughly translates to “let’s talk with no bullshit.”
It’s a philosophy I truly appreciate.
🍻Here’s to impactful marketing without all the bullshit, and meaningful connection with plenty of heart.
Nobody... ever... said this

There are a few new faces around here.. so I thought I would stop and introduce myself again.
I’m Trace - Canadian prairie girl who met Australian guy, fell in love and packed my bags 7 years ago to start a new life in Sydney.
I always thought I would have daughters, but I’m a Mum of two boys and couldn’t imagine it any other way now.
I am a total nerd and have a science degree in Geology.
Art and design is my obsession, but I didn’t always believe I was good enough to pursue it more than a hobby.
I was bullied as a kid and have always struggled with my self esteem. I’m so much more comfortable blending in, than standing out. When my mom was diagnosed with cancer last year, it made me realise just how short and precious our time is here. And all I want to do is show up, love deeply and live a life of purpose with zero regrets. Thanks for following along my creative journey and please feel free to share something about you in the comments so I can get to know you a little better too. ✌🏻

Well this is a reality of quenching thirst and munching food which are one of the ways killing the nervous germs out 😜. Flashback to the other day, when we serve together - two of inspiring ladies that take up their superpower not to minimize others but maximize the talents in the room. I’m glad we’re doing it alongside @fennysiawijaya@muliong@inesaryaniputri. Thank you for your heart to help equipping other ladies in the industry. Special for design students, catering to improve and sharing insights to make their portfolios better. Most importantly to make it purposeful and meaningful.
You know what’s funny standing there ? I wish when i was just a fresh-grad - i had this kind of platform to tell my ideas and get the support i needed to go forward and step into career. But now that i think of it, im grateful that we choose to act on providing this and fill-in the needs.
Learn from your best mulmul and iness ♥️ keep inspiring and helps to launch better designer in the future..
Best of all,
Thanks @sweet.escape to collaborate with @ladieswinedesignjkt for the first time. You’ve captured all the essence of the moment 🙏🙌 and @ninetyninejkt for the awesome space!!
Yep. It's that time of year 🎄
Love or hate it (we love it!), the Christmas frenzy presents a great opportunity to touch base with your best clients and give them some well-deserved love.
After all, you're only in business because of your clients. So treat 'em well.
I don't know about you, but I'd much rather buy a Christmas present for key clients than grit my teeth and buy some random trinket for my horrible old Aunt Gladys.
But if you're going to buy your clients a present, you have to do it the right way. You can't just buy them generic junk or trinkets that are tacky or inappropriate.

“Web analytics is the process of analysing the behavior of visitors to a #website - The use of website analytics is said to enable a business to attract more visitors, retain or attract new customers for goods or services, or to increase the sales”
So business owners, how often do you check your website analytics and what trends do you look for?.. we’d love to know? 👀🧐
I have such a big thing with energy, I think I always have however I used to have no idea what it was I was feeling when I sensed I didn’t trust someone or feel good around them. Now that I’m in tune with my body I can feel almost instantly if I trust or feel comfortable around someone. Our intuition is incredible and should always be trusted because sometimes it knows before we do. It’s normally referred to in situations where your safety is involved, and that you should trust your gut feeling. This I guess is the first part to get in tune with because it’s amazing what our bodies can tell us about a situation. However what I’ve now got in touch with is people around me in day to day life, and it not only protects me from energy I know is negative and destructive, it has actually pulled the most incredible people into my life. Support and friendships I didn’t know could exist 💖 One of the most amazing things is meeting someone and knowing that they’re your people and you connect like a house on fire and when this happens you are usually never ever wrong .
Practice getting back into your body, this comes back to mindfulness. When we are present and aware of our surroundings (not in auto pilot) we can sense our surroundings and move towards what is meant for us. .
This has taken me years and I didn’t even know I was doing it, but the proof is in the pudding because I have incredible people around me and I have never felt more loved. A lot of that is down to me being aware of what sort of energy I’d like in my life ❤️✨🙏🏼💖
Do you know what would be awesome? If Chicken Gyoza (like I would eat constantly in London - YUM) was an ice cream flavour. No really.
Just me? Okay that’s cool I guess. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What flavour of ice cream would you love to see exist as an ice cream flavour?
Meet @lelalovesltd! Louise and Jo have set up their tween & teen lifestyle store from their hub in Surrey and I was delighted to support them in their branding just recently ✨
I love their ethos which is all about supporting the journey to adulthood with happy hair, happy skin and happy mind!
If you’re buying for girls this Christmas then be sure to pop over to their feed to give them a follow and take a look at their goodies - so many gorgeous treats that they’ll be sure to love unwrapping 🛍
And you’ll feel great because you’ve shopped local and supported a new Surrey business - win win!!!

When I saw this weeks #homwork task I knew I had to find the time to take part. This week @homsweethom paired with @lettershoppe (two of my favourite artists) and asked us to create our own t-shirts!
I discovered Dina’s podcast @womenofillustration two months ago and binged the entire two seasons. Ever since I’ve been dreaming about becoming and illustrator and lettering artist full time and developing a range of my own products (a goal for 2020 maybe?)
This piece was created from a sketch I’ve had sitting in procreate for a few months that I took into Illustrator and cleaned up using the pen tool. I love this quote, for me it represents the battle I face remembering not to settle for anything that doesn’t light my fire. I wanted to create a piece that balances the eeriness of the quote with bright vibrant colours - a sense a hope and light.

For all the behind the scenes shenanigans check out our stories (it’s all saved in the BTS tab in highlights). Massive thanks to Ti @tinagowingstylist for all your help. Couldn’t have done it without you 👊🏻. Also to @inhousestylist for helping with my branding & @studio_sly I can’t fricken wait to launch the new website!!!

Aint nothing but your favorite mountain made into a sterling silver ring that supports sustainable development. Simple, powerful and for you to bring with you every day ❤️ Oh la la!
Had the loveliest few days not really paying attention to my phone but I have to say, for the first time in a long time, i kind of missed Instagram. How sad am I?!
It’s nice to feel inspired to post again but I have also really been enjoying reading. I can’t remember the last time I finished a book in a couple of days but The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was a real page turner. Determined to add a bit more detail to my reading Story highlight in the near future but for now, just know you need to read it.
What was the last book you read and couldn’t put down?

Do you have a website? Does your website use social media widgets such as a Facebook like button? If so, you should consider the implementation of such social sharing widgets carefully.
Following a ruling by the European Court of Justice in the case of Fashion ID vs 'Verbraucherzentrale', a German consumer protection association, website owners embedding the Facebook like button (and by extention Twitter, LinkedIn and any social media plugin and in general any third-party cookie) are breaching the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and are liable for data collection and transmission of personal data. The ruling states that using such widgets would make the website owner a joint data controller, along with Facebook.
When a user lands on Fashion ID’s website, information about that user’s IP address and browser data are transferred to Facebook. The purpose of the Facebook's like button is to track individuals across websites and permit data collection even when they have not explicitly clicked on the Facebook's like button or have a Facebook account. Also, this transfer of data happens without that visitor being aware of it. Therefore the website owner must obtain consent and provide information about the purpose of the data processing.
What does this ruling mean for your website? Make sure that your IT department tests and understands what data are collected and transmitted to the social media and also what the social media does with the data before installing a social media plugin or any other tool transmitting data of the website visitors to third parties.
All set to make my to-do list for the day-but the first task has already been set by my notebook 😌
Written in Urdu, it says: do a kindness, and then throw it in the river—or rather, get over it! I mean, how often are we kind because it pays off in some way, and how often are we kind without expecting anything in return?

Amidst all the hustle and bustle of the city the police barricades the streets and is just open to walk on your legs and absorb the essence of promenade.
The air caressing your face.
Every bit of the street is bright and pizzas are cherry on the top.
It takes a village...could be a very close right knit village but it does. That’s my belief. A lot of times people hide things they are going through for numerous reasons. I believe in a healthy balance. Yes you can pray for yourself and face God all alone and sometimes perhaps that’s what is required but there was a strong theme of fellowship in the bible and being interdependent rather than independent for the most part of it. Apart from praying friends and family, I had a small group of friends also going through miraculous pregnancies and we encouraged one another. There’s something to be said about someone understanding what you are going through because they are going through the same journey. Anyway, I eventually was scheduled for the retrieval of my eggs. It was a quick and painless procedure after which I had to drink lots of saline water daily. I drank as much as I could and the embryologist would call me daily to update me about my embryos. After 5 days it was time to go back to the hospital so the doctor could implant those that had survived the fertilization process.
The other day I randomly stumbled upon a personal Facebook status update I wrote 10 years ago when I was 18 years old that said “I need a job! Anyone hiring?” .
I had started @handletheheat just 3 months prior to writing that. I had NO idea it would eventually become my full time business years later. I had simply started it as a hobby and creative outlet! 👩🏼💻
I’ve said this before, but #handletheheat has led to opportunities and relationships I would’ve never had otherwise. It’s truly been life changing! ✨
It’s how I met my BFF @bakerbynature 👯♀️
It’s how I got a cookbook deal in 2012 and how I’m able to self publish my dream cookbook now! 📚
It’s how I’ve gotten to travel to amazing destinations ✈️
It’s how I managed to graduate from culinary school and university (my first book advance basically funded my culinary education!) 👩🍳👩🏼🎓
And it’s how I support myself doing what I love 💛 and I count my blessings every day! .
This time of year is super important to my business 🎄 Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to follow me, message or email me, make my recipes, leave comments and star ratings, and encouraged and supported me. I love you all and I can’t wait to share all of my big plans for the future with you!! 🎉
"You want me to schedule a photoshoot... for my brand? But why? ⠀
We get it, photographers (especially good ones) can be pricey, but like we‘ve mentioned before, you have to spend money to make money and content shoots are key to building your visual brand. ⠀
"But I don't have that money right now, I'm just starting."⠀
We've been there, we've heard that. ⠀
You know what you do have? A best friend, a partner, a boyfriend, a mama, someone that supports you, and you know what else you have? A cell phone! So start there. ⠀
Find props that fit your brand, if it's a product this should be easy, now get out there and shoot for an hour or two. Find a few different locations, keep the colors consistent, and get photos that your viewers will be attracted to.
