Vegan Vibes '17

Saturday, September 23, 2017

This Saturday I went with my gal, Shannon and a couple of her friends to Vegan Vibes in Mount Maunganui. It was the most perfect day out; vegan food, great stalls, live music and a cheeky G&T to end the day. I got to have some more treats from my favourite food truck, Mr Jackson's Plant-Based Food.

The lovely Tesh from Raglan Coconut Yoghurt and Monique from Wild One Wholefoods Eatery were there, so I stopped by for a quick chat with both of them. I was too busy chatting that I didn't even get around to snapping a photo of their displays.

It wasn't so long ago when I attended Vegan Food Fair in Auckland so I'm so stoked that they have events like this in New Zealand.

Thanks Vegan Vibes for the super rad day!

This past week, I had the opportunity to attend a few shows for New Zealand Fashion Week. Even though I have been battling with tonsillitis and allergies all week, I had the "fake it till you make it" mentality going on in my head, so I made the trip up to Auckland for it.

I attended a few different shows on Tuesday and Thursday; New Generation which featured Geo-J, Pania Greenaway, Not For You and Luke Dawson Clothing. Along with Mitchell Vincent Collection (MVC), Hailwood and Jason Lingard - who may I add was hauntingly captivating. I saw items from each show that I could most definitely see myself wearing, and surprisingly not all the items I would have chosen were black. But lets not kid myself, majority of them were, so there's that. Apologies for the lo-fi cam job of runway photos, I was the wannabe cool kid trying to take professional photos on my flash phone, but seriously, I will invest in a proper camera one day. Also kudos to Bailee from Miss Mash for the OOTD photos.

I was meant to head to French 83 with Bailee and her partner, but I skipped it to head back home and snuggle up with my kitty. There were other shows that I would loved to have seen such as Lela Jacobs, Salasai, Jimmy D and Stolen Girlfriends Club, but there's always next year.
