About Me

Stacy van Zyl - What Stacy Loves

Hi there,

I am Stacy, the photographer and blogger behind What Stacy Loves (previously known as Sawdust and High Heels); I am so glad that you stopped by!

Let’s see, what can I tell you about myself? I was born, and still live, in Cape Town, South Africa. While we have travelled the length and breadth of most of the country, I live about 5 kilometres away from my childhood home. This should be enough of an indication of my homebody-ness!

I am a mom to two wonderful, beautiful and, at times, impossible, kids and a wife to one patient, fantastic and yes, at times impossible, husband. I must say that he will probably read this, shake his head, and tell me that who the impossible one in the relationship is is up for debate. He may be right on that one, but then again, he may be wrong… 😉

When I am not working as a photographer or my other day job in the financial services industry, you will most likely find me at home in my oldest and most paint splattered clothes, persuading said patient and fantastic husband to tackle some or other new project that I have dreamed up after spending way to much time over on Pinterest or Instagram. Or, when that patient and fantastic husband has had enough of my crazy schemes, you will find us driving around the Western Cape. We love to discover new places to eat, play, stay and shop.

I created this space for me to share what I’m currently loving, what’s inspiring me and what’s giving me pause for thought across various areas of my life. There is no niche per se, I guess you could say that the nice is me!

My hope is that by sharing the things that I’m loving as well as bits of my life and experiences, you will find support, hope and encouragement for you to just be you; that you will go forth and live you best life, because there is no better time to do it than now.

Thanks again for stopping by and don’t be shy now – come back any time, even if it’s just to say Hi!

Stacy - Sawdust and High Heels
