Happy Tuesday folks. Hope you had an excellent long weekend!⠀
We’re counting down the days until the @budburstnz festival on November 11.⠀
Neither of us can wait to taste a whole range of delicious wines like @cambridgeroad’s Naturalist, pictured. ⠀
Hope to see you there!
Do you need a Christmas chalkboard for a gathering or a photo prop for family pics?
This A3 chalkboard sign was designed and lettered for a local photographer to be used as a photo prop for some upcoming family portraits.
How cool people think I am looking all insta hipster in the casual breezes of the fjord.....
how cool I actually am.... aka not cool at all falling over in the wind and barely keeping my hat on. 🤣🤣🤣
We drove 8 hours off our route to see if Milford Sound was worth all the hype, and I can affirmatively tell you..... it is. It’s worth it. Do a cruise, you won’t regret it. —
Anyone else been to Milford Sound!? Did you love it!? Thanks so much for everyone who recommended it to us! #RomanAroundNewZealand

Find us at @generalcollective on the 11th of November at ASB Showgrounds. It is the biggest market of the year and the only one we have booked this season. This is not to be missed, loads of talented New Zealand makers and designers all under one roof #generalcollective 💛
Once you’ve broken my trust it’s pretty much over friendship wise or even family. I will do everything I can to make you happy, feel good or help you out in whatever way you need. If you start lying to me to get me to go places with people that hate me, don’t talk to me unless you want something, and just generally start being a cunt I want nothing to do with you. I’ve made a really clear point of separating myself from people who are bad for me or do not want the best for me or my life. I am done with bullshit. Saying NO to things has honestly changed my life completely. Don’t think I won’t tell you no and to fuck off. I’m like thiiiiiiis 👌🏻close if you don’t get your heads out of your asses.

“A love letter for Pukaki
Here... where everything has a purpose. Where the light shines through each pine needle and sneaks its way towards the ground to spread its warmth. Where somewhere tucked away in the branches above is also a home for the birds. And the stones, the stones that lie at the edge of lake, shaped many many years ago by the moving giants. It gifted us with the joy of finding the perfect skipping stone to hop across the smooth blue surface. That we can also thank the light for.
Walk a little closer and take off your shoes. Stand at just the edge and breath the air. Take another step and let the sensation of the purest chill take over you. This kind of water is a gift.
It can't be from too far. Looks towards Aoraki the tall mountain of Aotearoa. Oh, he is beautiful and he knows it. But he is also fierce. A strong force of nature. He isn't shy and you'll notice him in a heartbeat. Those double peaks so strong, but so unstable. Often, a part of him falls.
To the north comes the flow of the Tasman River, source of the glamorous lake. The river that braids together and comes loose as it heads south into Pukaki. Yes, the Tasman Glacier and Hooker Glacier sure know how to put on a show.
I am blessed to be here.”
We were blessed with one of those rare end of winter days, so warm it had you thinking spring may have already arrived! There is something beautiful about this time of year, when nature has rested over the winter months and spring is arriving full of new life • makeup @lillybethmakeup • dress @junoboutiquenz •
Ooops, I've been so busy setting goals today it's taken me until now to get around to posting this!
Ok, ok, bit of an exaggeration. 🤥🤭 It's a long weekend here in NZ and I've been action stations all day decluttering the house, painting our dining room and kicking my husband out of our shared office. Which also meant moving our 3 year old into a different room too. Phew!
So while no goal setting has taken place today, it has been a super productive start to the week! And the weather has been positively delightful!
How about you my friend? How has your week started out? x
Awesome candles from @studiomilknz They smell divine!
Free-lensing fun with the sis. It’s always good to try factoring in some creative experimentation in your world. Create for the sake of creating, not for a client or job. I totally need to do this more. Anyone got any fun personal projects on the go?
The nights are lighter, the weather is warmer, and the golden light is out in full force! ❤️ If you have been thinking about booking in a family photoshoot, I promise you, there's no better time than now - you'll get amazing photos AND you'll get them in time to use them as Christmas presents 😉 Only 8 weeks to go!
