It just wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t start the year off with a pop of YELLOW!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and new years! I umm-ed and ahh-ed about posting a yearly summary – like I normally do, but you know what? I just wanted to sit back and enjoy my holidays. And it was goo-ood. I’ll tell you what; sleeping & hanging out with your significant other in is definitely way underrated.

This skirt was a present from my boyfriend, Barnaby, and it’s safe to say, he couldn’t have done any better this Christmas. Aside from getting this perfect little lemon-coloured number, I also got a bunch of cute homeware, so I felt pretty darn special indeed. And to top it all off, he took me out thrifting! I fell slightly in love with the vintage Minnie & Mickey set, but I’d rather use my tiny apartment to store more clothes rather than nick-nacks!

This year I also decided to do a spot of goal setting, something I’ve never really gotten ‘into’ before! So, 2015, let’s make sure I achieve the following, okay!

1. Go on an overseas holiday.

2. Replace furniture basics – aka. a new couch would be very welcome, thanks!

3. Visit Christchurch. I’ve been terrible at visiting the city I lived in for the past 6 years – and I miss my Nana!

4. Keep creating. Earlier in the year I set myself the challenge of making something (anything!) every weekend. This is something I’d love to get into again – it’s just too fun!

Are you setting yourself any goals for the new year? xo

Christmas-time in the Summer is so fun! Wasting no time when good weather came-a-lurkin’, last weekend I decided to spend my morning at the beach. Shamefully, this is one of the first times I’ve ever gone out of the ‘city’ city, and I had no idea what to expect – aside from a beach, really! Turns out it was a stone beach, not sand, so I can honestly say that my feet have never felt so darn exfoliated in my life! It was such a lovely day of lying in the sun, taking silly Instax photos, and just appreciating my little home country of New Zealand.

Oh, and after I left, I found out that this is actually a nude beach! Luckily we didn’t run into anyone even remotely nude, as I can honestly say I wouldn’t have been able to keep a straight face if I did!
