Spring/ Summer



This post is a little delayed considering its been spring for around a month (at least in the southern hemisphere is has), but whatever. Spring has Sprung! And with now spring here I can't help but get excited for summer. Summer is probably my favourite time of year. I just love the long, warm evenings sitting outside chatting with my family. Not to mention holidays, that's always a bonus.

I also love the spring/summer fashion. You no longer have to spend $100 on a coat, instead you could by 3 or 4 light singlets. Everything is much more affordable, and casual. I feel like there is a lot less pressure when it comes to summer fashion as well.
I recently had a wee shop on boohoo, and now already have some things ready for summer which has made me even more excited for summer!

This summer me and my best friend are planning a trip up to the Gisborne to visit my grandparents, and I cannot wait. We will most likely spend each day taking long walks up the many great beaches Gisborne has too offer, swimming, shopping, and just generally relaxing. This will also lead to lots of photos which I will probably share with you when the time comes.

What are your plans for the summer? And what are your thoughts on summer fashion? I would love to hear in the comments.

The blogging feels

Hey hey, a couple of things have happened recently which have made me really think about blogging and the effect its had on me.
For one, I accidentally shared an Instagram photo from  on my personal/private Facebook account. That may not sound like a massive deal to most people, but this is anonymous blog, it's more personal, and I prefer to keep it just to myself, and others who I don't personally know from around the world. So when all these people I knew from school and things suddenly started following me and liking my pictures on my blog account I freaked out, and deactivated the account.

As well as deactivating the Instagram account, I deleted a lot of my past posts, because I suddenly got very insecure about people I know reading my blog posts.

I was tempted to delete this blog completely, but the thought of not having this blog really upset me. It seems really silly since I don't get many page views, and next to no comments, but this blog has been something I could work for. After each blog post I feel very happy with myself and like I've actually accomplished something, which is way better than wasting my time on Instagram or Facebook.

It's a small little outlet for me which I love and enjoy. I will probably make another Instagram account in the future, and possibly even an account on Twitter or Facebook. We'll just have to wait and see.
Thank you to those people who take the time to read my probably boring blog posts. it won't seem like much to anyone else, but those couple of page views a day really do make me feel accomplished and valued.

Queenstown - Winter Wonderland

Just when I thought I had said goodbye to winter, and was fully ready for summer, our trip to Queenstown almost made me change my mind!...
