It was, in fact, six months ago, and boy has she been a busy gal between then and now! The creative mastermind has gone from producing geometric stationery to launching a full-blown, breathtaking range of cushions and phone covers. They're all stamped with her signature style, of course, and I for one am going a bit gaga over them. Alert the authorities: I am about to swoon!

Mr Jason Grant's A Place Called HomeI was eagerly awaiting the launch of A Place Called Home by Sydney stylist Mr Jason Grant for quite a while - and for many reasons. Firstly, how refreshing to see a home decor book my a male! Secondly, I had seen the front cover of the book splashed over social media and it alone had spoken to me (I have that storage box, I love decorating with red and I adore using pegs to display photos!) Lastly, he's uniquely Australian; what's not to love about a local lad whose spent years working with popular magazines, now releasing a book that chronicles his favourite things?

Low Maintenance Garden - Succulents in Terracotta PotsPlants are that demanding sometimes that I just lose interest in trying to keep them going all the time. Short of having a courtyard that resembles a cement museum, I had to find some low maintenance garden greenery to give my garden a low-budget pop. Half-an-hour in Flower Power was all it took to get these hardy babies a new home (and they're still alive!). Total spend on plants and soil was around $60.

Oz Design Moore ParkWhere does one start when it comes to describing Oz Design? While it's been around as long as I have (30 years and still doesn't look a day over 25!), in recent times it's multiplied its amazement factor. When I walked into the Moore Park store for my exclusive tour, I almost needed the store manager, Joe, to slap me across the face to wake me out of my design-induced coma; the current range is that phenomenal.
