This weekend is Labour Weekend in New Zealand so I’m enjoying a long weekend at home. It’s been so good to get a break from the grind in Auckland, which has felt me feeling pretty overwhelmed lately. I can’t believe the contrast in lifestyle from one end of the country to the other – it’s holiday living here. Anyway, I’m so glad I booked last minute tickets.
Coming home. I forgot how much I love it here, no matter what I’m up to. It feels like I can breathe again. South Island, you always win.
Yesterday we travelled up to Central Otago where I stayed with my friend Tori for the night and had a classic night out – beers at the pub, watching the rugby. I forget what it’s like to go back to a place where you know everyone in the town, but so cool to catch up with old friends.
This week I went for breakfast at Andiamo Eatery to learn about Luna Bronze and meet the founders Maddy Balderson and Rhi Hall. They’re inspiring girls and best friends that have made a natural self-tanner line that smells amazing (no coconut in sight). If you’re looking to try you can find the line in Mecca.
I’ve been binge-watching Romee Strijd on Youtube lately whenever I have a minute. She’s so positive and it’s interesting to see into her life as a model.
Industrial Lane Eatery in Alexandra is my new favourite, hands down. I got an amazing serving of waffles but they have an awesome cabinet selection too. A must if you’re in the area!
I’d never tried The Great White Shark cans of alcohol until last night with Tori and they’re so good! Definitely going to be chugging these all summer. They’re a mix of rum, sparkling water, apple and lime juice and they’re so refreshing but not too sweet. Plus, my hang over today is only a slice of what it usually is.
If you haven’t tried the new Popsicle Sourlicious you have to give it a go. Again, really refreshing and tastes like passionfruit and grape.
The jeans and top combination you can shop below. These jeans are so cheap at just $90 and I’ve had so many compliments on them over the past week. An absolute steal in my opinion!
WTF was the All Blacks vs. England game. I mean, really!?
I’ve barely been able to catch up on sleep this week which means I’ve just been super angry all week. Lol.
