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

HOW WE MADE OUR HOUSE A HOME

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

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.

They have one of the largest

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
