CREATION.

 Hello! Welcome my name is Shakira Van Vugt. I am a free lance social media consultant + everything else haha. I am located in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. So first off lets clear up the elephant in the room guys! Born a good seven years before anyone had heard of the blonde, hip shaking singer from across the globe, no, I am not named after that Shakira. (Insert Shakira joke here, HAHA). 

Skip a few years later to me, freshly graduated from high school, 18 years old, skipping out on a scholarship to university to do the retail management slog, spending my days doing work that wasn’t exactly creatively fulfilling, dreaming about the ripper holidays and places I could be seeing but not having the time or money to do it!

I, not so soon, realised I hated what I was doing so I quit. Just like that. Took a massive plunge and went to back to university to study a Diploma of Visual Merchandising + Styling. WIN WIN WIN! I loved it. I had found the things I loved doing, styling, photography, merchandising and designing. Woooo!

I decided to give my life the ol’ ‘stuff it’ approach, and quit my job to see if I could make a go of the freelance/self-employment thing and I have not looked back since.

Since then I’ve been figuring out what it looks like to run a business from your laptop, travel the world, and do the work I actually love doing!!!

The other thing I have been passionately chasing is knowledge, and that is knowledge about social media (insert mystery music here). I know its a whole massive hole of confusing (say that 5 times fast) but I was committed to learning and using it to boost my business. I have studied, I have researched. I have payed thousands of dollars on courses upon courses about social media and marketing just so that I could help not only myself but my clients as well and now my head is so full of info it is about to explode!!

I’ve worked with a whole handful of companies to learn the things I know now about styling and design such as Target Australia, Country Road, and Seed Heritage. I even went back to RMIT in Melbourne to teach (I know, crazyyyyy) about Instagram and Flat Lays and the power of social media!

SOCIAL MEDIA + STYLING IS WHAT I DO!!

I LOVE IT, AND I LOVE USING MY SKILLS TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE COMMITTED TO MAKING THEIR BUSINESS MORE THAN SOME PICTURES AND A PRICE TAG!

DON't JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT! HERE ARE WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID ABOUT ME :)
