I bet a few of you were wondering how I ended up in Sydney last week and so here's the answer. Last Thursday I attended the Converse Winter '16 preview in Sydney with a bunch of other people and needless to say, I had a great time. We started the day with an amazing lunch at Lotus (you need to try the eggplant if you're ever there, ohhhhh myy) and moved on to La Porte Space where the media event was held. The space was decked out in Converse displays showing off the new collections, along with live music playing and Mitch Revs painting in the background. We enjoyed the 30 degree weather in our new Converse II - which are seriously twice as comfortable as the originals - learning about street style photography from Life Without Andy and wandering the streets of Sydney. The pastel coloured oil slick collection shoes are definitely a favourite of mine, they're just soo pretty. Definitely not a bad way to introduce myself to Sydney for the first time and as you can tell on my Instagram, they kept me comfortable throughout. The only downside of this trip is my renewed lust for exploring unfamiliar cities while I'm stuck in Auckland - until next time Sydney!
I flew back in late last night so by the time I got home there was no way I was going to do anything but sleep - as per, sorry for the late post. As my week was a little more exciting than usual I thought it was a pretty good time to do a weekly re-cap on all things Sydney related, although I'll get into why I was in Sydney in my next post properly. Now I'm about to catch up with Brigit and a tub of ice cream, keep reading for my highs/lows of Sydney...
Whenever I go anywhere on a trip I always decide to forego my laptop and bring my ipad instead, completely forgetting that I haven't actually figured out how to post normally on this thing. I'm currently sitting, looking out at the beach in a hotel room in Sydney and while I love blogging, I'm going to go enjoy my short lived holiday as much as I can. I will eventually let you guys know what brought me here in the first place but that's a whole other blogpost. As always, for updates on me you can find me on snapchat because I think I'm now slightly addicted - kendraalexandra
My love affair with Converse has been going on for a pretty long time now - we've done everything together over the years, from running to eating and even sleeping together... that one is a long story. I can confirm it reached it's peak the moment these white high tops made their way onto my shoe rack. I specifically remember wanting them when I was 15 and obsessed with Swedish fashion, but it wasn't until a couple of weeks ago at the converse event (I talked about here) that I finally got my hands on these babies. It's pretty obvious that I've been attached to some sort of white shoes the entire year, so it's no surprise I've already worn these a heap in the past few weeks. This look is pretty much the epitome of New Zealand summer streetstyle - oversized tee, a shiny necklace, comfy shorts and a pair of KW's to go. Now, bring on the summer heat to match!

Blush tones will always be a favourite - it's probably an inclination established at birth, to be honest. Same goes for photos as you can tell. I haven't been feeling 100% lately so I've been spending a lot of time on tumblr. I love how much motivation you can gain from simply looking at other peoples imagery - to travel, to exercise, to cook - you know what I'm talking about. Anyway, I'm about to curl up in bed and plan my next adventure by hunting through photos on tumblr. I hope you get as much motivation out of these as I did.
This week kind of flew by in a "wait, it's Friday tomorrow!?" type way. While I swear I've been moaning about how cold the weather has been and how slow time is going, now that it's actually warm I'm kind of freaking out - can you believe that Christmas is next month? Craaaazy. Anyway, I've had the most lazy Sunday of my life but at least it means you get a blog post on time. Enjoy another highs and lows of my week...
