Hello, my name is Leanne. I'm the blogger and photographer behind Honey & Velvet and I'm passionate about living a life centered around balance, beauty and simplicity.
I love slow mornings, yoga and breakfast, kittens and sunshine, coffee, fresh blooms, the smell of the ocean and the scent of the earth after the rain.
Although I was born on a small island on the southeast coast of China, I spent most of my childhood growing up in sunny South Africa before pursuing my studies in fashion design and marketing in Italy and NYC.
I created Honey & Velvet while I was in fashion school as a personal and creative space to document my travels and the little pieces of my life that make me happy: beauty rituals, healthy eating, beautiful designs, places and experiences that inspire me.
Thank you so much for visiting and I hope to inspire you to discover beautiful moments everywhere, from the simple, to the extraordinary.
