The School in New Zealand

 

 

 

I've gone and done it.... The girl that says "no way, we can't afford a holiday to Samoa with some of our most awesome friends, we're building a house!" has dropped some decent cash on a course and is flying to Auckland to do it.

Seems crazy... A course over Samoa... EXCEPT this is a course like no other. First of all, Megan Morton is the teacher, umm say no more... amazing. Secondly, Kara Rosenlund, creator of all things beautiful (including the amazing vignette above) and owner of the gorgeous Frankie caravan is also amongst the team of women behind The School. I love Kara's style and would so love to go to her course on vignettes, yes there is a course solely on vignettes and yes, this is the school of my dreams (math, schmath) but unfortunately I can't do them all!!! So my one present to myself is The Science of Styling course. I am so excited.

BUT I am also a little nervous... Many of my friends and family who know me well (and you readers as well, seeing as here I am completely comfotable in my own little blog space) can never believe it but I get SO shy in certain situations. The word course or seminar make my face flush (s'pose that's not so hard, stupid flushy face) but I am so keen to go that I have just toughened up and done it, all by myself, booked it, going to it, red face and all.

A supplier of mine who has witnessed the awkward shyness bought on by course situations once coined me 'The Love and Ginger Ninja'... Yep it turned out she was a word genius. I loved it.

So I'm gonna make like Sasha Fierce and do it. The love and ginger ninja is going to get over her little fear, Hiiiiyah!

But if anyone else is going, let me know!!!! I mean every ninja needs a partner in ninja crime right.... it's not cheating. It's still kinda brave.

  1. Oooh! Good luck! I hope your flushy little face doesn't flush too much!
    Sounds like you actually be having too much fun enjoying yourself to get too nervous about it. Plus the first step is always the hardest - you are practically there! xx

  2. Aww, I love this post! I came across your blog a few weeks ago from Studio Home and have been checking regularly because, besides your lovely blog styling and photos, I am a huge (read: enormous) grand designs fan. Aaaand a fellow flushy facer! Haha, I had a job interview yesterday and thought my cheeks would explode. I'm coming to terms with it as a nice reminder of my humanity and also I find that it makes awkward situations much more relaxed cause everyone knows you're nervous, rather than trying to act put-together.

    1. haha Thank you, what a sweet comment. A fellow flushy facer..ha!! We take comfort in the warmth of each others hot flushes.
      Best of luck with the job....maybe they thought they were making you blush and felt super flattered. That, along with your mad skills (I'm sure) will have the job in the bag. x

  5. I have been super slack with my blog reading of late! Luckily, instagram keeps me in the loop a little....love seeing the house progressing, it just looks amazing. I have also signed up for the weekend at The School, so it will be great to catch up and say hey. x
