The duo are also the creative masterminds behind many international artists performances from, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, Kylie & Dannii Minogue, Ke$ha, Iggi Azalea, Nick Jonas, Havana Brown, and the list goes on and on.

I know there is more to life than just black, white and grey, but I just can’t get past the simplicity of monochrome. This Finnish home in Helsinki uses white as it’s backdrop then splashes the sweetest spots of texture to fill the rooms with homey love.

So….I’m not sure what happened to summer here in Sydney – this rain just won’t stop! While the weather is all doom and gloom outside, I have taken a rare chance/moment in time to hop back into bed this afternoon, snuggle in with my laptop and dream about the year ahead. I love that about a new year. It give us the chance to wipe the slate clean, get re-inspired and dream up new ideas, challenges, resolutions and plan exciting new adventures.
SUMMER is here – yay! There is nothing quite like sun kissed shoulders, salt in your hair and long summer nights. It’s the time of year when life comes up for a breath of air and time somewhat stands relatively still. We reflect, spend time with loved ones, celebrate the year that was and gear up for the year ahead.
As we head into the summer months I thought I would put together a list of essentials that I live by to keep me cool and healthy!
