EJN x ZANA_0003 I’m so excited to finally reveal my banner! I decided to go with my answer or response to everything in life lately “TURN DOWN FOR WHAT!”. (da da da le da da da)

If this saying/sentence doesn’t make any sense to you watch this and return. If you’re back and it still doesn’t make sense here’s my take on these crazy song lyrics.

To me it means “turn down for nothing”. It means i’m going to start my day and kick ass to the end, it means i’m not going to play small (“Your playing small doesn’t serve the world”).

It means work hard, work out hard, be nice to people, do your best, be generous with your love, your time, your money.

Don’t turn down that dial on all those good things! Turn down for what.

I know it’s quite a strange thing to be your mantra in life but I love it! it’s also a killer song to run to.

Thanks to Zana for collaborating on this awesome project with me. I love the final result and I love that it’s pink!

These banners are a limited edition. Only 15 banners were printed in total, of which 5 ZANA is selling online (local only).

I’ve already drawn 3 winners for the lovely people who helped with suggestions.

I loved these:

Nicole Velleman “Live a good story”

Anel “Hella good”

Matt Allison “Let’s stay in!”

You three win one of my banners, I hope you like it!


I still have another 6 to give away (I’m keeping one for myself!)

All you have to do is:

1. Like Zana on Facebook.

2. Tweet and share the competition. ” #WIN one of 6 limited edition @zanaproducts banners designed by @emmajanenation, local & international entries″

3. If you haven’t already like EJN on facebook.

I’m drawing a winner on the 15th September 2014.

Good Luck!
