My Name is Stacey & I have spent 25 years on this earth creating my story. It feels weird writing something so personal knowing thousands of strangers will soon be reading these exact words too. It probably will become a big ramble but I guess my point of it all comes down to how you perceive someone online, and the truth is you really have no idea what has or

Thinking about your first home is not only exciting, but kind of a little scary. The thought of having to actually make adult decisions – it’s a big deal! When we first decided to look into buying our first home together, we didn’t really know where to start, we umm’d and ahh’d about purchasing an existing home, but then stumbled across a few house and land packages and decided that

Why you should take a staycation!

Now I love myself a wee getaway, but one thing I hadn’t tried before was a Staycation within my own city. Regan & I recently had the chance to check out the brand spanking new Crowne Plaza here in Christchurch and it was amazing!! At first it felt a bit weird when the front desk asked us where we had traveled from, and our reply was 10 minutes down the

Summer Bedroom Styling Ideas with Logan & Mason

For us, the master bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. It’s our little haven, a place we can escape to at the end of each day to relax, and just hang out in the company of each other. Our style is quite boho minimalist, so we wanted something fresh, neutral and inviting. When it came to choosing our all-important bed linen Logan & Mason were our first choice. They have one of the largest

One thing we can’t deny is that Fragrance really is the ultimate gift no matter what time of year it is. With that being said, I have put together another Fragrance Edit this

I have had the honor of being apart of hundreds of Wedding’s over the years, and have heard similar comments all to often. Lack of venues and just the desire to have something

Protecting Your Skin With Your Summer Beauty Routine

Routine is always a great thing to have, so it only makes sense that you adapt it to the changing seasons. Sunscreen is a product that should be worn year round, but if i’m honest I’m pretty slack when it comes to the cooler months. With it currently being Spring, the days are getting warmer so I know it’s time to re think what I’m doing  in the mornings before

Grand Mercure Auckland – Review

I find myself in Auckland a lot for business trips, but the one thing I always struggle with is where to stay. A 2 night trip to Auckland can often cost me over $1000 for flights and accommodation alone, and half the time the hotels are never anything super amazing for the price your paying. On my most recent trip I had the opportunity to work with Grand Mercure, and I
