A guide to San Francisco

 

Hello again! It’s been a while, hasn’t it!

This is my first ever collaboration with another blogger, two in fact! Romey and Cade from www.romeyetcade.com .www.romeyetcade.com They asked me some questions about Auckland and I asked them some about San Francisco. They also interviewed me about me, which is one of the newest posts on their website if you want to have a read!

Here is how they describe their blog: “Bonjour! We’re Romey and Cade, best friends who started a blog. Romey et Cade is a little French arrogance, a little English elegance, a tad of American cool, a lot of fun. The blog was established in 2016 on the principal of style. It’s to the point and totally chic. Enjoy. “

So here is their guide to the American city they call home, enjoy! xxx

my new mood board & update

hello again! long time no chit-chat aye!

I’m gonna start with a little update on the things I’ve been loving as of late! I have been so busy with school like everyone else in my age group so I can’t wait for them holidays!

R E A D I N G

The Tomorrow series by John Marsden. I’m on the sixth one which says that I am thoroughly enjoying this series. If you live in Ozzie or Kiwi land you will have a pretty good idea of the books I’m talking about!

L I S T E N I N G

I am loving the Rookie Podcast right now, it’s so good and so damn inspiring. Song wise I’m digging; the guardians of the galaxy soundtracks, Heard ‘Em say by Mr. Kanye West, Finesse (Hey Baby) by Flamingosis, Cool by Zac Villere, The Cool Kids by BVGER and Nana by Polo & pan. My Spotify is frankie..b so Y’all can see what I’m listening to!

 W A T C H I N G

Buzzfeed Unsolved… I’ve watched every single episode of all three series and of course the post-mortems.  I am very interested in crime and supernatural stories and if you are too give it a watch, it’s on YouTube!

This monstrosity of an Inspiration wall was what I spent a good 75% of my weekend making. I went through about 20 BuzzFeed Unsolved episodes while cutting all these out. This is above my desk and is jammed packed with my favorite images from Tumblr and Pinterest.

I am really into plants, shadows, pinks, yellows, and organic looking things. I like to incorporate quotes, images, and illustrations. If I could insert Publisher files I totally would so you could pick the ones that you love and stick them all over your walls. I’ll work on it!

The things I loved in the Holidays.

sunday swooning1Hello, lovelies!

Happy Friday (for some of you)! Week one of Term two over and to be honest I have found it very tricky to get back into the swing of things.  For some unknown reason I haven’t been sleeping very well, I have only been getting about 5 hours each night. So school has well and truly taken a hold of me but I thought I would share and reminisce on the things I loved during the holidays!

01. SHOPPING

As it was my birthday in April (there’s a post on that) I had some birthday spending money! I loved walking around the shops with my mum, brother, and friends without a time frame. I got some gorgeous clothes and knickknacks that I will share with yall soonish!

02. CITY EXPLORING

Auckland is a pretty big place and I think there is nothing better than being a tourist in your own city. I walked down Queens street,  Walked around Wynyard Quarter and checked out the World Masters games entertainment hub on Queen’s wharf, I went to Devonport, shopped at Britomart.  I had a fabulous time!

03. EATING

As I had more time in my day I put a little bit more time in the food I made and ate and also cooked some pretty good dinners. Eating out was pretty damn good too! 😉

04. ROOM RE-ARRANGING

As you may know, I change my room around and update my mood boards almost every week! I had a blast with all my free time having a major sort out of everything and making my room look beautiful and cosy for Autumn! Tell me if you want to see!

05. CRAFT

I spent day’s chopping things out of magazines, I made my very first wall hanging, I did some sewing. It was really nice to have the time to do some crafty things. It sounds awful but I hadn’t for a long time.

06. READING

ahh, I read books, magazines, design books, blog posts, articles, newspapers. My heads a hive of information.

hello my loves!

today I am going to share the organic goodness that is the eco store with you! my house is scattered with these products and I thought I would share my absolute favorites with you!

my family and I all have quite sensitive skin so eco stores plant-based products with no nasty chemicals is what makes them a favorite in our house! they are not only kind to your skin but to the planet too! and there not tested on animals so *cheer*!

the thing I love most about eco-friendly products is their scents! manuka honey, coconut and lemongrass to name a few! the scents smell real and inviting and I just love them!

ebb98325-a380-4655-8211-1cd4c24703dd

product no.1 / /  lemongrass soap

this citrusy scented soap is very moisturizing and leaves your skin feeling cleansed and nourished! I love this one as it leaves the scent on your body for hours so you always smell fresh and clean! the packaging on the soaps is very cute it has this little design that’s drawn in black crayon! this actually appears on most of their products which I love!

product no.2 / / volumising shampoo

I have very fine hair so this gives my hair a shiny glow and makes my hair look really healthy! it’s has a floral scent which is very subtle and quite herby! for best use, I recommend using the shampoo and conditioner!

product no.3 / / coconut & vanilla body wash

I love the salty, beachy smell of this moisturizing wash! it makes me feel like I am in Hawaii or something! while cleansing the skin it protects it’s natural oils and makes it very soft!  this is the first time I have had used this and I am definitely going to rebuy it once I use it all!

54a03021-1feb-44c0-b43b-3983afe952c9

product no.4 / / manuka honey & kelp soap

oh I was so excited when I opened the box! it’s green! the seaweed pieces cleanse, exfoliate and nourish the skin! it smells earthy and salty and I just can’t get enough of it!
