"So we always keep open minded and are really grateful for opportunities that come our way.

"Instagram is such a great platform to express yourself by posting content to allow people to follow along your journey and feel inspired by a certain lifestyle."

Peppermayo launched the girls' careers when they became the face of the fashion brand, then Elite came calling.

The pair's agent and manager Joop Schouten said the amount of requests coming in had been "phenomenal".

"They are just so great at what they do that clients keep on wanting to work with them," Mr Schouten said.

"They just have this great balance between one another, a balance of fun and professionalism which makes it a dream for me.


"Both Elisha and Renee are really engaged with charity work too, which is inspiring."

The girls, who have also have a triplet brother, say Caloundra is still close to their hearts.

"It's always such a good feeling coming back home, we don't want to spend too much time away.

"Being able to travel for work is probably the coolest thing.

"The best places we have gone to would be Mexico, Italy and Hawaii. But we love California."
