Happy New Year

Monday, January 2, 2017


Robbie and I spent our New Year in the Bay of Islands at a peaceful retreat called Pagoda Lodge, where we camped (and glamped) for a few nights surrounded by nature and all of the good things. We even fell asleep before midnight - you know you're getting older when that happens.

We explored Paihia and Russell and even swam at a beautiful beach called Matauri bay. I don't normally swim as I have a huge fear of sea creatures but the water was so crystal clear enough that I could see my feet. Walks among tall Kauri trees, devouring fresh fruit fro-yo and swims beneath a waterfall made the start of the year so refreshing. There was so much to see and do that we have already planned on making another trip back up there this year. I didn't want to leave.

What did you get up to for New Years Eve?

Wishing you all of the love, joy and happiness this year! 2017 is going to be a good one!


My New Home

Friday, November 25, 2016

I'm happy to say good-bye to the flatting life and hello to a place I can finally call home. My partner, Robbie and I have moved into a sweet little place in the heart of Chartwell, Hamilton. It's a cute home with lots of sunlight and good vibes. I'm enjoying cooking meals and making the place feel homely for us. If you've been following along with my Instagram posts and stories, I even have my very own office. It's been super swell, we are finally adulting and I couldn't be happier!

We have our housewarming tonight with a few of our good friends. It will be so great to celebrate this new step with the special people in our lives!


The Peach Box + Mark Bale

Watch: c/o Mark Bale, Nail Ring: c/o The PeachBox

Got a wonderful package in the mail last month filled with sophistication and a little bit of sass! This Marc Bale watch is silver and black (two colours/tones that I wear all the time). The nail ring I picked out of a range of beautiful bracelets, necklaces and rings from The PeachBox. It caught my eye as I liked its edgy look and I knew it would fit in well with my ring collection.

Hunt their online store and tell me what things you like?


Hello Kitty

Sunday, October 30, 2016

Went to the Armageddon Expo 2016 last weekend and it was an experience. My favourite part of it was dressing up in a Hello Kitty outfit. There were so many people, it was social anxiety central, but it was great to see so many people dressed up in their favourite cosplay.  I think I saw about 12 girls dressed up as Harley Quinn. It's understandable cause she is AMAZING!

I got a big Eevee Plushie (my fave Pokemon), an Artemis phone case (one of the two cats off Sailor Moon, as well as a little Totoro & Artemis keyring.

 What would you dress up as if you went/did go?


Mini Roadie

Sunday, October 23, 2016

Last week, I went down to Hawkes Bay to visit my bestie, Alana, and even though I had to work during the day, I still got out and about to different cafes and explored Napier, Hastings and Havelock North. We got to eat at yummy restaurants (with a few happy cocktails in between) and drove up to Te Mata Peak to look out at the wondrous views. It was so good to catch up and venture to a different part of New Zealand that I had only been to once before. So much sunshine and laughter!

It's always good to get out of your hometown and go on adventures. I have an itch for many more to come.


The Purps is back!

October 2016:

It's fun to change your hair! Lord knows I do it all the time (admittedly, it gets unhealthy due to the constant dying and/or bleaching - sorry to all those Hair Stylists that are reading this). I can say that it is back to good health again now. Hence why I went purple again, which I didn't realise until Facebook reminded me that I was the same colour 1 year ago.

Purple has always been one of my favourite colours to dye my hair and it will be awesome for the Armageddon Expo next weekend as I will geek out over all of the anime. I am dressing up in a Hello Kitty costume. I promise I will post it up for you as well as some highlights from the event.
