More LO’r, Please.

Does anyone else feel like September is the Monday of the year? Yes, the weather starts warming up and the air feels fresher and sweeter, but it’s also a time when everyone seems to hit that end of year slump and daydream about holidays and breaks and a teeny tiny bit of downtime.

For us photographers, it also means the start of busy season, so whilst we were counting Rands and Cents in the Winter months, the Summer months mean the bookings start flooding it. Great for debit orders, not so great for exhaustion and fatigue

So a little drop from L’Or coffee was the best timed present I could have received recently – they delivered (straight to my office!) a fancy pod espresso machine and a huge supply of all their delicious coffee pods. These haven’t even touched sides as I’m starting each day with atleast 3 or 4 of these bad boys. Even more on days when I have back to back shoots – or in the case of today, triplet newborns!

So, make mine a, er, triple?

My clients are loving them as well and I literally had a dad in studio last week drink seven in a row – oh, how newborns can make caffeine our new fuel 😉

You can find out more about L’Or on their online and social media channels. But the real way to experience them is to buy some pods and taste them. they are compatible with Nespresso machines and taste even better than the real deal. My favourite is the Ristretto in ’11’. It’s dark and black. A bit like my grouch morning personality.

The best part? the pods are recyclable – yay for us greenies!

Have you tasted LO’r? What are your thoughts?

PS  if you do want a sample come visit me in my studio for a cuppa. I can’t promise I wont put you to work though 😉

Lucky Dog

I’m not sure who was more excited when our Lucky Dog box arrived but between me, Rupert, Bella (and may parents menagerie of dogs – we happened to be visiting for lunch when it arrived) there were lots of squeals of delight and wagging tails.

I just love how the box was personalised with a letter to Rupert and Bella and how there was a festive strand of tinsel on top of the beautifully wrapped goodies.

The dogs, of course, got unwrapping….
