5 minutes with…


I’m pretty lucky that I get to meet heaps of super creative types in my day job as an interior stylist, people I work with or just happen to meet. One of my favourite expressions is “Birds of a feather flock together” I believe you meet the people you’re supposed to… and I wanted to share a little bit about them, what they do with and what makes them tick with you (and will do so Tuesday afternoons) First up Sarah Wilson Journalist, Blogger and Author of I quit Sugar

Every Tuesday afternoon i will share with you a different creative and ask them some fun questions
