Your Home and Fashion

Make A Statement
I love the combination of good fashion accessories in the home and what you wear - they both need to make a statement.

We built our new home I am continually looking around to get the right look, although not realising this takes time....however I do believe its best to take time instead of several months down the track saying "what the??" - no really what was I thinking!

With fashion styles again its best to get the right look - sometimes I tend to shop for bits and pieces that don't seem to match. Until I went shopping in Singapore and they have all the accessories. We will be heading there again soon and I can not wait.
My fashion style is comfort and classy - very similar to my home style.

A Young Artist saving for LA


My nine year old daughter loves her art and I am a huge fan. She wants to go to LA and I said well start saving..."but mum I don't have much money"....well you are creative sell your art. So she is in drawing and painting mode at the moment.

I think the most important thing for children is to be creative and have fun whilst they are doing it.

These pictures she sketched for me - as she knows I love photography.
