Orms Makers Series

July has been an exciting month for collaborations. On one of these “get togethers”, I paired up with Orms for the #ormsmakersseries. A crew followed me around on a Saturday food mission documenting The Truffle Journal’s creative process by way of a video journal while I played with the Fuji XT1; A mirrorless camera that packs a punch. What a pleasure! It turned out to be much lighter than my usual DSLR and I struggled to put it down. 

Here is the finished vid.

It all began with an idea. The idea of creating something that would inspire others to create for themselves.

That’s how my personal Orms photo book journey began.

I’ve always wanted to do a cookbook. From as far back as I can remember, since around the time I learnt to read a recipe, there has been an overwhelming personal desire to contribute to the process of cooking in some way.  

What better way to test the waters than with the exciting photo book products offered by Orms.

The program is amazing and easy to use. All you have to do is download the software from the ormsdirect.co.za website and build your book step by step!

I chose the A4 portrait standard hard cover book with a leatherette finish and gold embossing (because every girl loves a little glitter.)

You can capture your memories better than you ever could with dusty photo albums and since it’s more tangible than social media, I’ll admit, it brings back a feeling of sentimentality.

Call me old fashioned, but I might just be hooked!

The cookbook is filled with 10 recipes. I chose to collaborate with a friend of mine, Nikita Stallbom. She is a health coach and yoga instructor who I respect immensely. With our powers combined (insert quirky captain planet quote here) we have produced 10 Buddha bowls that will blow your perception of healthy eating right out of the water!

It has been such an exciting journey to see my work become a hardcover book that I can gift to my nearest and dearest.

I highly recommend that the next time you want to give the gift of memories or simply create your own keepsakes, these photo books are the way to go.

Watch this space for where you will be able buy your very own copy of the cookbook,
Happiness Is.

A very apt title.
