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

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

The Coromandel Aka Paradise

The first stop on our North Island Wilderness campervan adventure was the beautiful Coromandel. Like many parts of the North Island this was my first time exploring this area and I absolutely fell in love. You really do feel like your in a whole different country, the scenery is like no other.

VBxEsteeLauder Collection

Victoria Beckham was first apart of my life, when Spice Girls were all I listened to. I was totally that girl who had the bob haircut and the tight flared ankle black pants form HBK, with the crop turtle neck top prancing around the living room pretending I was posh spice. These days I admire her strength and determination as a business women and mother, not to mention her collaborations

If there’s one thing I love it’s a good foundation, but I am totally that girl who always goes back to the same brand, as I’m yet to find something that compares. That was before I tried the YSL All Hours foundation, a matte full coverage formula that really does stay all day. Being a Makeup Artist I am often running around all over the place between bookings, coming in
