While we are all enjoy gathering here in our “online world” – I wanted to keep one arm out stretched to the birth place of inspiration…. BOOKS. While I have a kind of hiccuping consumption of novels, I am a regular collector of photographic digests, encyclopedic guides and most definitely memoirs and contemplative publications that I can pinch some “get up and go” from. The Leap Stories would be one of the latter! I’m happy to introduce you to this book, not only for its terrific, locally sourced interviews but

I am really pleased to bring you a change of scene this week. While I really do relish my days alone in my office, the many advantages and subsequent creative strength from working within a team are not lost on me. I kind of think finding that great working dynamic can be as elusive as a regular romantic relationship, hence the need to nurture and protect it with clear roles ! Two young Australian designers who have discovered their skills and aesthetic compliment each others perfectly, are Sophie Bain and Jono Biet. Under the

Hi everyone, I’m voyaging toward the balmy blue waters of the Maldives with my partner in crime from the 14th to 28th of July. During this time I am attempting my first ever TRUE digital detox. No email. No trawling social channels (my fave!!!) and no blogging at all. I’m foreseeing a magical calm and reversal of computer induced squinty eye wrinkles (As if!

These images are just a tiny glimpse into the incredible visual dream land created by internationally renowned (Wellington) photographer; Amber Griffin.  While her portfolio is full of dynamic, crisp moments of movement from all levels of dancer, her recent project with some of New Zealand’s elite contemporary and ballet dancers is breathtaking! With a gold medal at the recent World Photographic Cup in France, Amber has been touring her ethereal work including an exhibition in Auckland (closing on the April 2nd !!) at Exhibitions Gallery in Newmarket.

Snack food is generally far from serious – in fact it generally gets a seriously hard time! Enter Roger Holmes. The co founder of Stolen Rum and son of generations of corn farmers and you have the recipe for something a bit special.

Last year Roger launched Serious Popcorn – debuting two flavours brewed (brewed?) with corn sourced directly from a straight talking organic farmer from the

Do you think its something to do with getting older? This intense attraction I am slowly building for deliciously scented soaps and creams? My mum covets floral smelling handcreams like its nobody’s business and this has just spread to expensive body scrubs and oils which is way outside her normally frugal character! Anyway…I’ll be happy to embrace this rite of passage if it means I can collection beautiful handmade products like these from Vice and Velvet! Dreamed and cooked up by hand in Melbourne by clever creator; Mei Ong ,

2016 is feeling rather romantical for me so far, so it seemed like a positive thing to kick off our first post of the year with a look at the latest from our friends at Together Journal! A highly experienced NZ team produce and curate this beautiful quarterly publication with the aim to offer top quality information AND inspiration specifically for down under brides. In this issue you can browse some real weddings spanning from Auckland, Tauranga, Martinborough, Christchurch and Dunedin as well as destination celebrations in Sydney, Bali, Lake Como and

New Zealand brides – you’re lucky….it’s finally happened! I am really happy to introduce you to the Together Journal, a brand new magazine that finally shines a light on our local weddings, vendors and industry with a super fresh eye for curation and inspiration. The quality of this publication came of no surprise to me after I learnt that it was born under the creative direction of top wedding photographer; Greta Kenyon. Having worked with Greta myself a number of times I can vouch for her beautiful aesthetic, knowledge base and attention
