Paint provided by Dulux Duramax* My laundry has been a room on my to-do list for a long time. It's a small space and everything has really just been bundled up on the dryer or on the floor next to it, and it's never really had much order to it (which drives me nuts!). Recently Dulux contacted me about their new spray paint product Dulux Duramax, and asked if there was any part … [Read more...]

It's taken me a long time to work out what my fashion style is. In my late teens/early 20s I bought whatever the surf shops were stocking that season, even if they weren't a great fit for me. Then I moved into the lost years of trying out "young corporate" and I didn't really do that so well either.
