July ’18 Favourites

TRAVEL: So obviously the highlight of this month was going to Rarotonga. You can read more about it here, but basically it was beautiful and relaxing and exactly what I needed. It also was strange, because usually when I tell people I’m from New Zealand the reaction is along the lines of “Oh it’s beautiful … More July ’18 Favourites

Scattered thoughts

I am just about to take a much needed break, so naturally my head is racing with thoughts. I’m getting them all out here, in an attempt to quiet my busy brain: Preparing to go on holiday is stressful when you’re the one responsible for planning everything. I keep having these terrible thoughts like “what … More Scattered thoughts

June ’18 Favourites

I can’t believe it’s already July! 2018 is shooting by, and I’ve written hardly anything in this blog.

Late March, The Vaccines released their fourth album ‘Combat Sports’ and it’s all I’ve been listening to this month. At the moment my favourite is “Out On The Street”, but “Rolling Stones” and … More April ’18 Favourites

Glamorous Indie Rock & Roll: A review of The Killers concert

Once upon a time (actually, 2009), The Killers announced they were going to tour New Zealand. They were my favourite band at the time so I was initially super excited. But then my 15 year old heart broke because they were only going to play Auckland and Christchurch, either option quite a distance from my … More Glamorous Indie Rock & Roll: A review of The Killers concert
