A little bit about me…

Hello I’m Jacqueline Le Buchanan (pronounced: bu-can-an)  but my family and friends call me Summer, a nickname that has been given to me because of my love for summer. I am an Aussie girl now living in California. I decided to start this blog because I’ve always been a believer in doing what you love and for me that love is fashion and styling.

Once upon a time I was living in Australia and was a Mental Health Registered Nurse but I had a deep burning desire to be in the fashion industry. I decided to study fashion on the side at The Fashion Institute based in Sydney, which exposed me to the glitz and glam of the fashion world.

To pursue fashion further, I made the big move to New York City which had always been a dream of mine. I was living in one of the biggest fashion capitals of the world, and I got the opportunity to work as a freelance wardrobe stylist and collaborated with many inspiring photographers, makeup artists, hairstylists, models and other creative artists.

While I was living in NYC I decided to study a continuing education course in interior design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. I also interned at a top interior design company which allowed me to start interior designing as a freelancer and assisted my husband, Steve with flipping homes.

One day I came to the realisation that as much as I loved NYC,  I couldn’t see myself raising a family there. Steve and I made the heartbreaking decision to leave NYC to the sunshine state of California where Steve is from.

It was a new year 2017, and I wanted a job that would give me the flexibility to travel and live a balanced lifestyle. I was interested in creating something of my own, something that would allow me to share my creativity and inspire others, so I started this blog.

Finally I am back in my element and doing what I am passionate about. I am usually very reserved about my personal life but in this blog my walls will come down and I will share the things that I love – fashion, interior design, travel, food and lifestyle. I hope you enjoy!
