Chances are, if you’re a recent reader of Lost in the Haze – you might not know about where I grew up. Sure, I’m born in New Zealand, and live here too – but I grew up in Brunei, in South-East Asia. As a self-confessed ‘jungle girl’, sometimes I simply feel the need to go back to my roots – I’m sure all of you who live away from home will know the feeling!
Today, this ‘need’ meant that I dressed up in a leopard print romper (c/o Boohoo) and lounged underneath a tree feeling somewhat like Jane (then Barnaby must be my Tarzan, don’t you think!) It’s not something I’d be likely to do in Brunei – between the jungle-dwelling monkeys and snakes (eek!) when I’m home I’m much more likely to be seen laying around on the beach. For now I’ll just settle for ‘wannabe jungle girl’ in New Zealand. Quite worth it when it means there won’t be any snakes popping in to say hello!
