Lately, for me, it’s been all about the ‘hive. There’s an odd feeling of satisfaction when you get your hair twice as big as the last time you did it (challenge accepted). Plus, I really hate washing my hair all the time, and they say that dirtier hair works better for grip, so yay; an excuse!

Are there any other contact lens wearers out there? My eyes have basically gone on strike and water like mad any time a lens comes even remotely close. My new specs couldn’t have arrived at a better time, and paired with a beehive & this beautiful (x100000) floral dress by Joules I felt like a modern Joan Holloway. And that’s never a bad thing, am I right?

Also: is it wrong that I totally read out the title in an Austin Powers voice? Answer: yes, yes it is..

It only takes a quick glance at my Instagram feed to see that I’m pretty freakin’ obsessed with flowers. Sure, I might not know terribly much about them, but I can certainly appreciate a pretty thing or two (or in this case, thousand or two!) Every year the Wellington Botanic gardens puts on a spring Tulip festival. I drive (aka. bus) past every day on my way to work, so have been keeping a close eye on their blooming schedule to make sure I visited at the peak time…

What I didn’t think about was that everyone in Wellington would be doing the same thing!

Something they don’t tell you about being a blogger is that you’ve got to be brave around other people! I twirled around and sat beside the tulips, ducking the crowds the best I could. The funniest point was when I bumped into a little boy from my work (I’m an early childhood teacher, by the way!) and he got so shy he wouldn’t even talk to me! Though I’m sure I’m a bit more intimidating with my thigh tattoo on display and giant hair, especially if you’re only two years old! Eep! I wore my favourite piece of clothing, this pink (!!) sailor romper by ASOS. It’s massively on sale at the moment, and was far too hard for me to resist – you know I love my sailor clothing!
