I’m Gemma

I told my best friend “I think I’m going to do this whole yachting thing”, she replied with “When do we go?”, we both took our STCW in October 2011 and started networking! I initially wanted to do one season & yet 7 years late I’m still traveling around the world. I’ve explored Mexico to Turkey and lots of countries in between.

Netflix docu-series called Get Organized with @thehomeedit . Clea & Joanna are organizing Goddesses who are very thoughtful in their process. This show is FULL of brilliant tips & tricks (plus in the first episode they organize all of Reese Witherspoon's movie costumes & who doesn't love legally blonde!) 👱🏻‍♀️

What started as an Instagram account of table settings & cocktails has turned into something beyond my imagination. Some of my best friends I have met through this platform and I feel as though I’ve found a community where I truly belong & feel welcomed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While I have a (rather) long list of projects and collaborations I would love to do, I’m starting with one thing at a time. So the first major project I’m working on is: Mentorship Programs for Stewardesses. There will be an application process, and each group will be small in size to ensure you’re needs to fully met. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll be sharing more over the next few weeks & I can’t wait to spend more time with all of you through these sessions 🌸
