Now winter nights enlarge ❄️
The number of their hours,
And clouds their storm 💨discharge
Upon the airy towers.
Let now the chimneys blaze🔥,
And cups overflow with wine 🍷;
Let well-tuned words amaze
🔥❄️⛄️ ‘Now Winter nights Enlarge’

Tell me, what’s your favorite food or drink for the holidays and how much do you let yourself indulge?
Food is at an abundant during the holiday season, no doubt I’ll probably gain some pounds, and I’m totally OK with it because life is short and a few extra pounds are worth the indulgence to me
This time of year gives us so many opportunities to gather with friends and make memories over shared meals and relive those times when as kids, we could easily finish off a full batch mums home made goodies
And I, for one, want it all with the full knowledge I’ll shed those pounds before mid-January, I like to let loose for just a few weeks out of the year
This time next week it will be my end of year Mastermind Event 🥂
I’ve been busy working bts on all the details and one thing we have done this year that I’ve never done before is create a Dress 👗 theme .
This year it’s ‘Classy Christmas’ 🎄 and you can wear anything in black 🖤 Green 💚 or White 🗯
Who wants to guess the colour I’ll be wearing? 😉 Which colour are you most likely to wear?
Baby it cold outside!
Wrap up warm, have a hott toddy 🍻 and stay glammed. Look after your skin ladies and gents! This cold weather can be so harsh on your skin. So if your in need of a facial or some glam get booked remember we come to you #simmyshelpinghands
Tough day? We've all been there...and we've all managed to find a way out⠀
Sometimes all you need is a single voice in your ear cheering you on. Consider this my cyber-whisper. See you on the other side⠀
📚📚📚 The 4 Hour Work Week Summary ‘What if I did the opposite?’ Is the cry from Tim Ferris to inspire a generation of entrepreneurs to join the new rich and work a 4 hour week. 📚This captivating title is an exaggerated claim and is more to draw headlines than actually achieve the shorter work week. What the four hour work week 📚actually achieves is a masterful book about productivity disguised as a get rich quick book📚. How to get more done in less ⌚️time, quitting the out dated 9-5 model and fit more exciting things into your life .Tim Ferris discusses key principles of productivity like The 80/20 Principle and Parkinson Law. These are cornerstone concepts for being more productive and he suggests the key to having more time is doing less 👍🙌🤓 ‘One does not accumulate but eliminate. It is not the daily increase but a daily decrease. The height of cultivation always runs to simplicity’

I will be announcing the new and updated Annual Brand Photography Package this afternoon! I am so excited about this as I know how much more value it is going to bring to people and their businesses!
For now, though I am sharing this beautiful review from the amazing @mikyla.twsbc I have been working with her over the past few months and it has been amazing watching her business grow and being a part of her journey!!!
“What can I say I have been working with Ami for the past 4 months and what a difference it has made, not only is it amazing having regular branding shoots, Ami really kicked my social media strategy & content use up ten notches.
I am one of those people who loves the idea of social media but at the same time I loathe doing it as it was always the first thing to get sidelined when times got too busy but now with Ami's help I know how to make a plan I am sticking to it 90% of the time (before Ami it would have been 10% of the time) and I don't feel so overwhelmed by it all now.
All in all, I couldn't recommend working with Ami enough on her Annual branding package you get amazing photos that are dedicated to you & your brand which gives you content all year round, you work with her to build out a full strategy & content plan, you have someone holding you accountable that knows when to push you further but also takes the time to get to the root of your objections or hesitations. I've taken so much from working with Ami in this short time and cannot wait for the upcoming months."
I remember receiving this award, after starting my business on just £100
I share this image with you as I was a teen mum with a private school education who many thought was written off once I had my baby girl (who is now a highly commended journo at the BBC)
Believe all things are possible.
And it’s been a journey .
Awards, customer testimonials and public recognition wasn’t something I was interested in when I started my business.
But 14 years later as a mentor for other business owners, a coach and consultant....I have to say recognition definitely does have relevance when you put in the work. Especially so, when you’re doing it from the heart. I get results for my clients and they know I always put in 2000%
I don’t do what I do for awards and recognition, I do it for my passion! This isn’t a phase for me, it’s something that I worked towards as a mother of 2, studied for and worked on my own to build up with support occasionally from family and friends. I’ve been doing branding and marketing with businesses of all sizes for the last 22+ years and I’m overjoyed that I get to spend every moment that I want to, serving clients that I love! .
A mother of 4 now and running 3 different companies, I’m here to tell you that YOU CAN TOO
And I am still building! #WorkInProgress
To those who've been here a while, thanks for sticking around! To those who are new to my feed, welcome
I like to take some time every now and again to (re)introduce myself, and this time, I’m doing it with a super seasonal slant! Here goes
The best gift I’ve ever given was Arfan his X box one S and the best one I received was Noah my little boy, cheesy but so true
Most Saturdays this month you can find me Swimming and on Sundays, probably cooking, resting and spending time with family
I am an excellent baker and cake decorator so I definitely put some time in around the holidays perfecting my sugar flower and icing skills or learning a new recipe or two to compliment my roast potatoes
My weakness this season is Costa’s Hazelnut & Praline hot chocolate and any soppy Hallmark holiday movie
It doesn’t feel like Christmas without seeing a pantomime with Noah and me wearing one of my ugly sweaters
What are your holiday rituals?
What a fabulous evening with @tie.london #tielondonawards#gala it was a pleasure to be involved well done to the board , Nina Amin @dhamijadinesh @radhikaseth_london @ratikapurikapur and the @arcmanagement team 💐#Londonentrepreneurs
❄️ ⛄️ ❄️ Winter
When all around the wind doth blow 💨,
And coughing drowns the parson’s saw,
And birds sit brooding in the snow ⛄️,
And my nose looks red and raw,
When roasted crabs 🦀 hiss in the bowl,
Then nightly sings the staring owl 🦉
Winter ❄️ by William Shakespeare 🦉🦀⛄️

Yesterday I spoke at @mumsunltdnetworking Xmas networking event all about Instagram 📱 How you can use it to grow your business and make more impact 🙌🏼
It was a great experience with some amazing ladies! If you were there do leave your biggest takeaway in the comments 👇🏼😉
Instagram has been a game changer platform for me and I’ve created a 6 figure business I adore 🥰 without the needs for ads because of it
Do you use Instagram for your business? Do you want to learn how to? 😉
And a massive thank you to @debbiegilbertviva for inviting me to speak and creating a beautiful experience ♥️
Morocco was an amazing place to visit 🇲🇦 Everyone was so welcoming to us and we met so many inspiring people, many of whom had dedicated their entire lives to honing their craft which had been in their family for decades 👨🎨 #harfi
What’s the best way you can help yourself when it comes to reaching your goals?
It’s all about having a plan. Research shows that those most likely to achieve their goals are those who have followed a plan including three simple steps:
Don’t just think about your goals; write them down. Commit to actions (how you plan to achieve their goals), and write those down, too!
Share your goals and action commitments with a supportive friend, and talk with that friend each week about your progress and how they’re doing.
That sounds doable, right?! And we’ve made it even easier with the IsaLife™ Success Plan. I will make sure you have l the tools needed to succeed!
Thank you all for coming to our LIVEs last week at The Earl Of Derby and O2 Academy Islington - great nights and amazing vibes at both! What a sound, amazing to perform with those guys @reu_james @charliew.98 @francescocodardo and Tahiny! 📸 @kalopsiakoncept
