We're constantly working a season or 2 ahead and in June this year we shot our Summer '17 campaign.  

Even though it was the middle of Winter we decided to take a punt (and a whole lot of blankets) and shoot outdoors.  I got married at Bangalla in Scotland Is. and it's absolutely beautiful (check it out here - incidentally, it's for sale if you're in the market for a multi million dollar hideaway on a car-less island in Sydney's north) and have always wanted to go back so this was a perfect excuse.  Legend photographer Tim Jones and I caught a water taxi to reccy the site one cold May morning and even in the grey drizzle it still looked amazing - perfect for our shoot.  We booked it and for the next 2 weeks were glued to the forecast - which was becoming increasingly cold and wet.

Two days before our shoot forecasters started warning of an impending storm and they were so right!  At the last minute we booked a studio and shot the Summer campaign inside while the storm raged outside.  We didn't get to shoot at Bangalla but with the help of central heating and a few storm lashed palm fronds foraged from the wet streets of Rosebery we recreated Summer.  Our model Paulina was absolutely brilliant and it was such a fun day.

Thank you to our beautiful inside and out model Paulina Grochowina, photographer extraordinaire Tim Jones, and hair and make-up legend Tiffany Mooney

i recently read an insta post which re-shaped the way i looked at 'sad last times' with the focus instead on the subsequent, wonderful '1st times'.  i've just hit full effect menopause so i decided to apply that filter to my current menopause experience.  read on for the 1st in 'my menopause journey' series and my quest to de-old menopause x

A chance encounter with an orange bikini and a (nearly) ex boyfriend made me realise I've had a very specific personal style for well over 20 years.  Read on for a style-led trip down memory lane and a summary of the key wardrobe pieces which have been my personal style heroes since I was 18.

these images share summery, vintage tones which take me back to my childhood.  colours are equally muted and vibrant - reminding me of the lollies we ate, the adults we wanted to be, and the big fake plastic jewels we used for dress-ups.  i hope this sparks a lovely trip down memory lane for you too x
