Celebrating Magical Zines At Auckland Zinefest

It's strange to think that my sister and I made dozens of these zines when we were younger, without realising it. As I walked in the Auckland Art Gallery at the different stands, it felt like being at a market, with all these wonderful zines of stories and beautiful art surrounding everyone. I got a … Continue reading Celebrating Magical Zines At Auckland Zinefest

5 Places To Go Thrift Shopping In Auckland

In a strange but warm way, secondhand shopping makes me feel like I'm going to a shelter to adopt a cat and give it the love it deserves. It's giving the piece of clothing another chance to be worn. It feels good to recycle and purchase something at a lower price in good quality. I … Continue reading 5 Places To Go Thrift Shopping In Auckland

My Love Hate Relationship With Auckland

The Similarities & Differences Between Sydney & Auckland

At first I wanted to write about the similarities and differences between New Zealand and Australia. However, I have only traveled to one city in Australia. A little background is that I was born and raised in New Zealand and I moved to Australia at 18. Being in Australia for just over a year and a half, … Continue reading The Similarities & Differences Between Sydney & Auckland

Pros And Cons Of Living In New Zealand

I was born and raised in the amazing country of New Zealand. These pros and cons come from my personal experiences of what I feel are good and bad parts of living in New Zealand.

New Zealand Fashion Week – Street Style 2015

Oh, how I miss New Zealand at the best of times. Even though the days may see four seasons in one, there is something about home that is never quite like anywhere else. The best fashion is one that's seen passing by, spontaneous and effortless. You can observe the way the fabric moves, the different coats, … Continue reading New Zealand Fashion Week – Street Style 2015

What a Wonderful World

What a beautiful day it is. Auckland is so majestic on a Summer's day (or should I say Springs day) when the sky is blue and scattered with white clouds and the sun is shining bright. The flower's are so beautiful in the University, today I opened the door to find a lovely surprise from my lovely … Continue reading What a Wonderful World

Daily Thoughts #8

My lucky number is 8. I like the way it looks like an infinity sign and the way it symbolises open possibilities, trust and endless love. It's exactly one week until I make my way to Taiwan and Australia. I'm starting to feel the slight butterflies and fluttery feelings inside my stummy (stomach/tummy). It's a … Continue reading Daily Thoughts #8

Daily Thoughts #7

It's the final week. Not a dramatic exclamation especially after eating a chocolate filled bun. It is however the final week of University for 2014. Every moment I keep thinking "this is the last lecture..last time I walk this path..last time I see these people". I'm making myself feel like I am in a movie … Continue reading Daily Thoughts #7

Daily Thoughts #3

I arrived back to Auckland from Wellington two nights ago. The weather was beautiful there and everyday there was blue skies and sunshine.
