heart Death To Stock (Under License)

It’s time for another monthly summary post, and while February has had some incredibly awesome parts (alpaca farm tour anyone?!?), it has also been incredibly draining and I’m glad to see the back of it.

heart This Month Last Year
I turned 30, and I celebrated by running away to Auckland with my husband and hiding away at The Langham. I got a massage at Chuan Spa, and it was the best way to celebrate getting older  Continue reading →

Taking Stock – My Life, Right Now

I know, I know; it’s only been a month since I last did a ‘taking stock’ post. I just thought that seeing as Ive been pretty down lately, it might be a nice idea to take some time out to think about the things going on around me, in the hopes that it might give me some perspective.

I am going to try my best to avoid being sarcastic and flippant and to answer each question as honestly as possible. I’ve recently realised that I used humour as a shield when I’m feeling vulnerable, but instead of sounding funny, I end up looking like a huge bitch… Continue reading →

Treat Yo Self: Me Time

treat yo self, lazy day, beauty, skincare

The last couple of weeks have been a bit hectic, so seeing I didn’t have much to do this weekend, I decided to have some much needed me-time; which brings us to now.

Right now, I’m sitting on my bed after taking a bath, listening to Gramatik (a huge thanks to my workmate Sue for the suggestion), and drinking Rose Bud tea.

I thought that today, I’d share a list of the things I do to unwind, because ‘me time’ is the best time (and sharing is caring).  Continue reading →

Weekly Gratitude List

gratitude list, gratitude, attitude of gratitude, brunch, eggs benedict

I’m going to be honest, I really didn’t feel like posting today; I don’t know what it is, but I feel really bummed out right now.I guess that’s when I need to do these posts the most though, right? So, in the spirit of thinking of the positive (and in the hopes that this cheers me up a little) here are a few things that have kicked ass this past week:  Continue reading →

Updated: My Desk Office Area

Ever since we moved into our apartment, I had wanted to get a new desk; the one I had come with the apartment, and I never felt as if it was mine. Does that sound weird? It served its purpose, sure, it just lacked personality I guess. So at the beginning of the year, my lovely husband bought me a desk from Freedom Furniture, and it’s safe to say that I am in love with it.

After getting the desk, I re-arranged my office and got a few new desk buddies. I love this space so much, and no longer lie in bed curled up as if I’m doing crunches when I’m writing blog posts (anyone else sit like that with their laptop?)
