I never feel guilty about having a nice slow start to my Monday morning. I love to journal about the things I am grateful for and then set some intentions and goals for the day and week ahead. Then I have a big cup of black coffee ☕ throw my hair up in a bun and tackle my to do list! ⠀

Gooooddd evening all! I'm going to share a bit of a tip for you... people love people!
And trust me... your audience wants to see YOU! And they want to engage with you! And they want to know who they're speaking to!
So hello all! This is me lol Jen!
But my main reason for posting is to talk about branding photo shoots... this is a pic from one of mine... and honestly they are one of the best investments you can make as a business! They really give your brand a voice and give your tribe an idea of your personality!
I am blessed! I work with a super amazing photographer... yes you Sophie! @sisterscoutstudio and I now have a great selection of images to share amongst my social feeds... I have 3... (yes madness)
But honestly... please think about it! you will be doing your business a great favour! Because your audience want to know you... they want to think of you like a friend! After all if they're going to buy off you they want to trust you right? And showing your face on your feed is the perfect way!
Sunday wisdom lol
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do
what you believe is great work and the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” Steve Jobs
Your happiness in life depends upon your happiness at work— considering we spend so much time actually working it really should be a priority in life don't you think?
If you’re struggling at work, like I was a few years ago, try and figure out what it is that makes you so unhappy. Is it your boss? Your co-workers? Your work itself? Then figure out ways you can actually change the situation. Remember you have the power to make the change!!
I did... OMG it was the best thing I ever did... and now I pretty much love every day! I feel so blessed! Even if I am working today haha
Honestly life is way too short to not be in love with it!!
Happy Saturday all!
Do you struggle with your brand style, when it comes to Instagram? You’re not alone.
In fact, it’s one of the the MOST talked about aspects when we’re branding a client. They want to know how to use their brand when it comes to social media. Because, we don’t get a second chance at a first impression, right?!
Our biggest tip is to match the style of your brand with a mood and stick with it! If your brand style is bright and light colours, you wouldn’t post something dark and moody.
Another great way to add consistency is to use your brand colours as blocks for quotes. That way you’re creating original and shareable content that showcases your brand in your insta feed!

Is the glass half empty or half full? Let's talk about perspective.
As a business owner, how you view, handle and adapt to situations or conversations is one of the most valuable things you can master.
Taking yourself out of the circumstance allows you to look out through another lens and be less attached to the outcome.
It also allows you to lead with intention. If it's something you can make a direct impact on (control), how can you make a difference. If it's something you'll need to let go and happen (surrender), what can you learn from it.
You can't control everything. But you CAN control how you react to it and what you take out of it. ✨

The feeling when you wake up and realize it’s still the weekend! ✨
Soaking in the long weekend here in Aus with a little bit of work, a little bit of sunshine and a glass (or two) of French Rosé!

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY. You're gonna want to swipe for this one!!
We'll be celebrating our 5th year in business in May and I can still remember designing the first ever Saevil Row logo (SWIPE)➡️.
The inspiration behind it? Well some of you may/may not have picked up on this, but Saevil Row was inspired by the London Tailoring district Saville Row. Saevil is my last name and, well, I love a good play on words! So for the first iteration of the logo, I added a little loop in the 'W' to replicate a sewing needle.
While our current logo is more reflective of our brand, I love being taken back in time, sitting in a café in Toronto and designing our first logo just months before I moved to Paris and where Saevil Row was truly born. ✨

Sometimes we treat our Creativity as a scarce resource, thinking that somehow we could use it all up and have none left but I think the opposite is true. Adding a little creativity and curiosity into every part of our lives actually means we have MORE.
I do this in small ways every day - taking an extra minute to make my smoothie bowl look pretty - even if I'm not going to Instagram it! 😜 It trains your brain into looking for unexpected solutions and this is infinitely helpful when it comes to actually doing the work.
So find ways to use creativity in small and big ways in your everyday life and never be afraid to use it all up.

Our most common question when we have visitors come into our office is who’s @dezcon_ ? So I thought I would let you all know! Not only do we share the same space but we also share the same name 🤣 So meet Amani No.2 in the white blazer! We went to school together, and opened our business’ at the same time. We’re both creatives - she’s an architect! We have been sharing a space for the past few years & it works perfectly for us! Just another example that you don’t have to follow any rules, you do what works for you & your business! 👌👌 #sosocial ✖️ #dezcon

Alex's Train party 🚂💙❤️
My little man is turning two in a couple of weeks and I was SO excited yesterday to receive his party invitations from Astrid @paperplayground.
Astrid has created the most adorable ticket style invitation, complete with a train cover 'itinerary'. ❤️💙❤️💙
The matching (luggage tag style) thank you tags are going to look perfect on the @littlebigcompany striped cupcake boxes.
And how sweet is the 'Eat Me' sticker for the @stylepartylove picnic snack boxes!
I ❤️ it all and can't wait to share all the details of the party prep! Xx

⏰ I wish I had more TIME ⏰⠀
Have you said this to yourself before? ⠀
As a business owner, my bet is that you have! Probably many, many times. ⠀
I know time is one of your most precious resources, so I won’t waste it by having you read a long insta caption. ⠀
Instead, if you are looking to save time, and set in place a rock- solid branding strategy that will allow you to communicate your message to your audience, there’s four easy steps:⠀
1️⃣ Know what your brand stands for⠀
2️⃣ Know WHO your audience is, and what they NEED⠀
3️⃣ Create a mood board that appeals to your audience⠀
4️⃣ Develop your style guide that sets out what colours, fonts, images and graphics reflect your mood board.⠀
Want to dive deeper into these four steps? There’s a freebie for that! ⠀
