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!

  1. I absolutely love this dress! Such a unique print, and I love that it’s a great price too! I had an aunt and an uncle who lived in NZ for 10 years. He was a linguistics professor. Then he was offered a higher position but it was in Michigan! So now that’s where they live …. a state that has winter 9 months out of the year 😛

  4. I’ve heard of Brunei, but I’ve never seen its pictures though. Now I have this chance to check it from Viki:)

    And your shoes are exactly the ones I’m looking for!!! Can I ask which brand are they?
