What I… Kerry from My Confetti Heart

This week I’m interviewing Kerry from My Confetti Heart – a wedding inspiration website and directory based in East London.

Kerry started My Confetti Heart because of her passion for weddings. She currently works in an office job and needed to let out her creativity somehow!
Although currently East London based, her goal is to expand the vendor directory and wedding features right across SA.
My Confetti Heart is a central place for wedding planning couples to go so expect tons of pretty, tons of inspiration and tons of love.

What I…

Know

I have learned that you are only responsible for yourself and your own inner peace.

Life can get so busy, rushed and at times selfish.

I try to remind myself that you can’t control how the next person reacts to certain situations but what you can do is control your own thoughts and reactions.

Your words and actions come from what’s in your heart.

Grow kindness, the world needs more people that are kind.

 

Love

Rainy days, wooden floors, remembering how someone made me laugh, listening to songs that I listened to when i was younger, the comfort of a hug, poetry, comfortable silence when there is just no words, art, weddings. Coffee, knowing all the words to a song, the smell of summer, Jacaranda trees, old things being made into new things, pugs, dusk, a sky painted pink, dancing, sweet moments like these.

Read

Poetry. I must admit I’m terrible when it comes to books. I used to be the girl that would pick up a book and finish it in a day, but one day life got busy. I sometimes long back for a day where I can just sit down and read a book. More often than not I start it, but never get to finish it. I love poetry and have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to beautiful pieces of art strung together with words.

Want

To focus more on enjoying living my life each day and the moments, rather than to worry about the yesterdays and tomorrows.

 

Wear

Basics. I like to think of myself as quite a minimalist. I love simple pieces, classic staples that I can mix and match, with a few accessories.

My wardrobe used to overflow with clothing items that never got worn. I now make a constant habit of cleaning out after each season. If an item doesn’t bring me joy and I haven’t worn it in the last season, out it goes. The peace that comes with a clean and empty space is great!

 

Need

My family. They are everything to me. I come from a close knit family and they are my biggest support and my first love.

My husband always knows how to keep me motivated in every day trial and errors and my son is always there to throw his arms around me. When he says “mommy I love you” my heart let’s off little fire works.

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for almost 7 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
