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

Bridesmaid 2.0

I was going to write a May 2018 favourites post but I didn’t get a chance before June started, and then this weekend a VERY big thing happened which has made me forget everything that happened in May: Erin, member of the Lipstick Brigade and one of my closest friends, got married.

Trashy rom-coms and … More A love story

“New Zealand, that’s in Europe right?”

It has now been a whole six months since I left Canada and came back to New Zealand.

Partly because I like travelling and seeing new things, but also because I love discovering people’s unintentionally … More “New Zealand, that’s in Europe right?”
