Oh! Hi there, it’s me again.

So I vaguely remember making a promise months and months ago that I’d keep my blog updated while I was in the USA, that I’d vlog and do all the things that bloggers are supposed to do. Unsurprisingly (and this is very unfortunate that it’s the case,) I wasn’t able to keep that promise– not even for a day few hours. There were a combination of reasons. Firstly, I had no laptop for about a month, thanks to the thieves who broke into my house just a few days before I was due to leave NZ. Secondly, wifi was piss poor (which was a disappointing surprise). Thirdly, my vlogging camera decided it would be the perfect time to konk out, less than a week into my travels. And just in general, blogging was kind of the last thing that was on my mind after a late night back from work. Yes, working for the mouse does have it’s hard days, just like every other job. On a slightly brighter note, after arriving home to New …

2014: A Year of Adventures and Firsts

Saying goodbye to 2014 was hugely scary but also hugely exciting! I spent New Years Eve on the banks of the Thames in London  where, through the gaps between buildings I watched the beautiful fireworks display coming from the London Eye. It was a great way to spend NYE, despite freezing my butt off in the cold, and so surreal to have welcomed the coming year in London of all places!   Sometimes I forget that there was a whole six months before I left to go overseas. Just so much excitement and adventure has been jam-packed into the last few months that I’ve felt so overwhelmed and probably can’t fathom so much happening in such a short space of time. 2014 has been the year where I’ve felt I have gained so much more independence. Being away from home for so long on my own, fending for myself, language barriers, there have been so many times when I felt out of my comfort zone and for that I am so happy and grateful, as …

Girl Crushes x Bloggers | May 2014

I wrote this post sometime last year on my old blog and thought I’d post it here because I still love these two so much! For a while, a couple of super super super fashionable chicks (presumably sisters,) kept popping up everywhere on my Tumblr dash. At first I thought it was just a one-off street style snap, but as the photographs began stacking up on my queues, I realised these chicks were so fashionable it was unreal I was super jealous I needed to know who they were and I was super SUPER jealous. So, I did a bit of digging and found out they were Stef and Jess Dawson, fashion bloggers from Australia and, you guessed it– unbelievably stylish. Yes, I am new to this whole blogging thing, so I’m not in-the-know about all the popular bloggers, so no eye-rollin’ please. But pretty much this is a post expressing my girl crush on these gorgeous Aussie sisters and my envy at their outfits.   So go ahead, check them out at How Two Live if you …
