Allow yourself to be both a masterpiece and work in progress at the same time.

Rebecca ( The You Project ) asked me to be part of the Reset Retreat in Hanmer Springs, New Zealand. And what a blast it was!


This first Reset Retreat quickly became fully booked and there was this brilliant group of women. We all could use some quality me-time and we met some new wonderful ladies and had enough of a break to think about what is really important to focus on.



At some point in the weekend I shared my story. With my chat I showed others that we all hit road bumps and experience change in our lives.


' Last year I felt very lost starting all over again in New Zealand. I had to deal with rejection and totally had to rely on myself.'


I wanted to prove that with the right tools and confidence the modern women is very resilient and once set in motion can achieve goals.


Over the years I’ve worked with individuals who’ve told me they feel stuck , that something had to change for them to break free and be happy, but they lacked the confidence to take that step.


You may feel like you are stuck in a relationship, in a job or in life in general.


The million dollar question is:

'Are we able to feel authentically confident enough to keep growing and don’t let self-doubt and rejection get in to the way of our self believe?











Rebecca helped us think about this during the workshops. She asked “What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail.''


What if you are not comparing yourself with others and feel confident enough to make your own choices?





At the end of the weekend we all stood up and spoke out loud what our dreams and goals are for the next year.


My goodness, there are going to be some cool dreams becoming reality this year! This inspirational list are my favourite dreams and goals from our weekend are:

  • I am going to read a book instead of watching Netflix

  • I am going to start a fashion side hustle

  • I am finally getting rid of my two identity’s

  • I am going to organise more retreats!

  • I want to Flaneur more [Book The Art of Flaneuring]

  • Join mastercheff! masterclass. [application here...:]

  • Do Iron man ! [ application form here]

  • I want to retire in ten years time

  • I want to loose weight and become more healthier


Even though it was just one weekend, it felt like a full week!


I am recharged and feel inspired. I know friendships don't just appear above thirty but these women can call me day and night from now on.


I am already looking forward to the next Spring retreat 💖
