I’m Lorna Eppel
This is me, the girl behind Life with Lorna (previously Jozi Girl Eats) as you may have seen on Instagram. I am a young inspiring entrepreneur living in the concrete jungle of Johannesburg. I grew up in the Northern Suburbs and spent a year living in the Mother City, Cape Town.
After studying I ended up in the corporate world but after years of working in an office environment, I realized that sitting behind a desk from 8 – 5 just wasn’t for me! I had completed my photography qualifications and opened Lorna Jane Photography which I managed part-time. I did photoshoots on weekends/holidays and my passion just exploded!
Food photography always gave me the most inspiration, I love food styling and creating content and Instagram allowed me to showcase my creations with the world!
This filled my heart with an abundance of happiness and my love + passion for good food grew and transpired into creating healthy wholesome recipes that I could cook and share with my friends and family.
In 2018 I made another big decision, I stopped taking the contraceptive pill after being on it for ten years! I then decided to complete a course in nutrition & weight management so that I could gain more knowledge about living a healthy lifestyle, balancing hormones naturally and skincare. This is something I incorporate into my everyday life and I want to share living a healthy holistic lifestyle with everyone! #nourishandflourish
I am so proud to say that I am now a full-time blogger on Life with Lorna as well the founder of The Jozi Girl Eatery which is a plant-based eatery in the North of Johannesburg.
