Wow I am meant to be writing so many travel posts, but it’s my birthday so here is this post instead. This has been a really important, really happy year. I was reading back on my diaries from my early years of university and there were days where I was so miserable (also overdramatic) and…

Summer Spots (Bay of Islands, New Zealand)

New Year’s in New Zealand always comes with expectations of a music festival, a drunk kiss and a lot of substance abuse. This summer I was inspired to take a break from that and spend my favourite public holiday with my favourite people somewhere a little slower – the Bay of Islands. Together we packed…

J U N E

2019 has really done that. It’s June! I feel like we blinked in January, imagined the future briefly and suddenly it manifested with no months in between. But also, what a pretty and special year it has been so far. Three Highlights: Bucket list Moments: This has been a year to do and not think…

Ye Annual Throwback: BLOGNY 2018

Let’s take it back to the blog that begun it all with another throwback. 2014 was now 4 years ago – almost 5 as we come into the New Year. Yet I know that the writing I did back then is probably the best i will express myself. I remember writing this post sitting cross…

The Peaks of 2018: BLOGNY 2018

Like I said – for every hard moment this year I was blessed with more kindness and good than I knew what to do with. The love I have is the abundant kind that I couldn’t have done anything to deserve but I will spend my whole life trying to show just how grateful I…

3 months!!: BLOGNY 2018

This morning I woke up, heard the heaviness of the rain through the window and rolled over. Fell back to sleep. I got up eventually and boiled the jug while I found a song to listen to. Danced around the kitchen making breakfast. I changed the sign on the table to say ‘1 day until…

A Lesson from Every Job I’ve Had: BLOGNY 2018

  ONE: I was fired from 1 – or discontinued because I guess I never had a real contract. It wasn’t my fault even though I also sprung a gigantic law suit (lol).I think what this job taught me is you don’t need a job. I was so restless back then, but the kind of restless…

Christmas in 5 #3 SONGS: BLOGNY 2018

Last Christmas – I don’t care if it is by Taylor Swift or by Wham! Either way Last Christmas is the best Christmas song and anyone who disagrees is wrong, sorry I don’t make the rules. All I want for Christmas is You – Mariah Carey’s Best. Ever. Song. I also have such a nice…

Let’s Talk about Being Alone AGAIN: BLOGNY 2018

I’ll admit I am not good at being by myself. I am a severe hypochondriac who is calmed by having someone nearby to help me. I am a horror story fanatic who is easily spooked by dark shadows. I also just love to talk to people. But being alone is important and I am terrified…
