For many of us the start of a new year signals an opportunity to start afresh. A time to rid ourselves of old patterns and behaviours that no longer serve us and to create new goals for the year ahead.

Whilst many people’s goals are focused on the personal things they would like to achieve (loose 10 kilo’s, drink less etc), I’m here to remind you all, not to forget about the home.

Our homes are a reflection of who we are as people. They showcase what matters to us most and are representative of our personality, lifestyle and style, so they deserve a little love!

I am a firm believer that your home should be a place where you feel most comfortable and at peace, which is why ‘house goals’ are so important.

Like people, our homes evolve as we grow and our tastes change. So if one of your new year goals is to give your home a complete overhaul or your planning on redecorating that space you’ve been talking about for the past year, here are some interior trends for the year ahead to get you inspired.

So you have just moved into a rental property? Maybe you’re a seasoned renter and are saving for something to call your own, maybe you’re building or renovating your home and need a place to stay for a period of time or maybe you own a property and have decided to rent it out. What ever your situation, renting is something most of us will experience at least once in our lives. It can be frustrating living in a space that you can’t make permanent changes to, especially if you're used to living in your own home, as a rental never fully feels like ‘your’ home. Unfortunately it’s inevitable that most rentals will come with some wear and tear which you may have to live with, but hold off on calling it a day and living with scratched floor boards, ugly marks on the walls and crappy curtains because these can all be fixed….how you say, I’ll tell you! Here are some simple ways you can inject your own style and taste in your home and best of all I’ll show you how you can achieve it for under $300!!

Christmas time is almost upon us and for so many people, the only thing the season of giving does, is give us a headache!

On what should be a relaxing day spent with family and friends, often turns out to be the mother of all stresses!

Instead of chilling out you’re trying to clean the house with the kids running a muck (especially in the part you’re trying to clean!), wrapping last minute gifts and keeping an eye on the multiple dishes you’re trying to cook for what can be a cast of thousands!

What’s that, your head just exploded thinking about it and you’ve just booked a one way ticket to the other side of the world to escape….

Before you get on that plane, I’m here to help with some quick and easy ways to get your home ready for Christmas to ensure you have a stress free day.

How many times have you gone to look at a rental property and it looks more like a crack den than somewhere you would want to live.  Looking around all you see is stained carpet, walls that have been painted a hideous colour or worse are stained from years of smoke and the place smells like something died! Some rentals are in great shape but you still get the feeling that because you don't own it you can’t put your own spin on it. I’m here to call BS on this and show you in 5 ways how to make a rental property feel like the home of your dreams.

Christmas can be an expensive time of year and if you’re like me it’s also the time of year when the universe decides to shit on you and give you all your bills at once! But I have realised that Christmas decorating doesn’t have to be an expensive affair.
