The best part about this social media community of stews?! Watching incredible women flourish in the industry!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@eloise_moolman & I first started chatting in 2018, a year before she started on her first yacht. In the past few years, I have loved watching her become a brilliant stew and be apart of amazing interior teams. She is such a positive light & it’s a joy to follow along on her yachting adventures.

What are your favourite stew accounts to follow?! Share below!
Ever feel completely overwhelmed?! This week @theyachtstewpodcast is dedicated to YOU 💗

A few weeks ago, a brave stew messaged me sharing that due to Covid, the guest trips on her boat were becoming incredibly long & tiring. The amount of work felt overwhelming and she wondering if it was something I had dealt with myself. And YES, I know that feeling well!

I asked how others dealt with this on my stories and 3 lovely ladies messaged me with their tips & tricks. So I decided to turn these chats into a podcast mini-series. All of the episodes are 15 minutes or less with workshop style teaching.

I hope through this episodes, you find something that helps to release the stress & tension 💗

When looking for a job, it can feel as though you need 8 arms to keep up with replying to emails, updating your CV, staying on top of required visas, continuing your education & keeping crew agents in the loop. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But what happens when something is out of your control? What if a previous employer is giving you a bad reference?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨Reach out to that specific person and see if you can reach a resolution (do you now have a greater understanding of their POV? do you feel you can genuinely move on?)

✨Explain your situation to a Crew Agent, so they can speak to the HOD that's interviewing you

✨Be honest during the interview if it comes up, being genuine and upfront is crucial. What did you learn from the experience? How are you remaining positive and moving forward?

✨Ensure you have as many positive references as possible {written references are great, however, it’s even better to have references that are willing to answer calls and emails}

✨Keep you references updated with your plans so they aren't caught off guard with phone calls & have time to prepare

What advice would you give to someone in this situation?!

Let's talk about anxiety.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last night I fell asleep feeling quite anxious, which meant I didn't have a great sleep. I though I would share what I’ve done today to make myself feel better 🌸💗
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This morning, I wrote out a list of everything that was giving me anxiety.📖 (Even the tiny things!) I then highlighted 3 items that I wanted to work through today & different ways I could turn that anxiety into a productive workday. I then put on my favorite Spotify playlist, lit a candle, stayed in my comfy clothes & started making my way through the list (followed by a 7k beach walk!). Feeling anxious is awful, so I just wanted to share in case anyone else is struggling today! You are stronger than this & I hope you are able to find joy today!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My goal of the day is to mirror this photo of Verconia, @theestew_ and have a moment of pure joy 🥳

P.S I’ll be sharing all of your tips and tricks on dealing with anxiety on my stories today and tomorrow 🌿

Content I have been loving recently...

Pop Chillout playlist on @spotify It's 6 1/2 hours long & perfect for background noise 🎶
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
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!) 👱🏻‍♀️

Untamed by @glennondoyle 🌸 FINALLY started this yesterday as I’ve only just finished Finding Freedom (the Megan & Harry book). I couldn’t put it down last night & I no doubt I’ll be finishing this one rather quickly.
