Rant out of the way… you all know Ms Mu5tang Hire loves a good collaboration. Recently Mr Mustang Hire and I had the privilege of collaborating with some amazing business women of the South West in a commercial endeavour. The vintage inspired commercial shoot and was held at Sally Young’s property in Mumballup where she designs and operates from her home studio - Sally Young Designs. Her studio is an eclectic mix of vintage items and gorgeous handmade clothing using a mix of used threads and felt. But that is a whole other post! More on that soon. Christin's Travel & Living Collection was every woman's heaven whilst Leah's Whole Green Pepper fresh produce, fermented foods, Kombucha and flower essences had us feeling oh so good. Hannah Brown enhanced model Iona's beauty with a light natural palette of makeup and styled her brows and hair on fleek. Model Iona flawlessly styled the Sunflower Seed Vintage clothing, Blush + Bloom's floral creations and Sally's wearable art designs with our Mustang Sally in the background. All beautifully captured by Busselton photographer Sarah of Red Leopard Photography. For more details on these South West business women and their businesses (especially if you’re planning a wedding in the South West) and to see the wonderful images that were produced please continue reading.

Whole Green Pepper
Leah started Whole Green Pepper as a means to share all the amazing things she was learning while healing herself. After months of severe digestive issues and other health issues suddenly appearing with little or no relief from conventional medicine Leah started doing her own investigations. She found out that suddenly she was reacting to foods that she had eaten her entire life. After eliminating the trigger foods she started improving her gut health and general health on a larger scale mainly with the use of whole and traditional foods. Whole Green Pepper was born, a place where she could share with her community all the things she was learning. Since starting her Facebook page Leah has completed some formal study in Health and Wellness coaching and Functional Nutrition. Continuing education has given Leah more confidence in what she was already leaning and created a capacity to start helping others that may be at a similar place with their health.
