“Palo Santo”

It’s no secret I’m somewhat a (modern) hippy – I practice daily meditation with The Broadplace I’m attracted to candles, crystals and burning sage. Well my latest discovery thanks to my friends at Totem Road is “palo santo”  these lovely timber sticks from Peru can be burnt to promote good luck, clean your house of bad energy and enhance relaxation and best of all they smell beautiful

Hotel Ravesis Bondi

You have gotta love a pastel makeover where the new cocktails match the decor right! I have been crushing on the new (ok not sooo new) Hotel Ravesis makeover, its opposite Bondi Beach so there are awesome ocean views, the colourful interior upstairs by Corina Hicks is fun without being too in your face, the food and cocktails are superb! and of course him loving the splashes of Peach – the perfect Instagram backdrop!

behind the scenes bondi wash

I couldn’t help but post this super cute picture of Belinda ( Bondi Wash Founder) and Sophia from a recent shoot. I love working on this local brand ( I have from the start) It’s not often as a stylist that you get to work with a brand from its beginning, from the start I have worked Belinda to create the brands unique visual identity and with each new shoot we as a team push the continue to create fresh beautiful images (thanks to the amazing native botanicals) that reflect the brands message, style and core values.

Another perk of working open this great brand is that I love and actually use all their products as does Sophia!

ikea new Stockholm collection

When Ikea gets it right they get it very right

Im loving the brand new Stockholm collection that has just landed in store now, its easy, simple, relaxed and not complicated. I’m loving the cosy velvet, the blue glassware and the light timber and rattan, it’s scandi ( sorry can we not use this word unless its actually scandi! such an over used word) but feels perfect for an Aussie home too!

The trick is to not fill your place with things from just the one store, its all about creating a mix, tricky with this collection as I have my eye on lots! The Rattan Cabinet is totally a stand out for me!
