On Sunday I went along to the Kinfolk Honey Harvest Workshop held in the quaint little George Fraser Gallery and it was so much fun! We learnt all about the importance of bees, the process of honey-making, and learnt how to make our own honey infusions to take home. We also got to taste test a bunch of delicious honeys! The lovely Shaye of On My Hand and Greta of Greta Kenyon Photography hosted our Auckland event and they did such an awesome job of it!
After making our herb and spice infused honeys we got to enjoy a traditional Chinese tea ceremony to kick off the amazing morning tea that was put together for us. All of the baked goods had a little honey inspiration in them. Danielle from Spongedrop made the most amazing orange polenta cardamom cake with honey marscapone. YUM! And Caron from Little Doe brought along some scrumptious gluten-free bread which I smothered in cheese (oh man I love cheese haha). It was great to see some familiar faces attending too – Danelle (same name!!) of Danelle Bohane Photography and Julia of Studio Home blog!
Super keen to head along to more of these Kinfolk events! Can’t wait to hear what the next one is going to be!
I might just be a wee bit jealous of my brother right now. Just a tad. Last week, he and his girlfriend left New Zealand to live in South East Asia. He’s a web developer and was offered the opportunity to work freelance styles. Doesn’t matter where he is, as long as he as access to the internet. So he jumped at the chance to do some travelling abroad. He’s currently ‘holidaying’ in Bali. Then heading to Malaysia and Thailand and a billion other places.
I spent a week in Tauranga to spend some quality time with him before he left. That’s him and I above, chilling out in the freezing cold at The Mount. I’ll probably share some more moments from my week back at home some other time.
As you can see from below, Rosie was not happy about Cam leaving. :P
So, to all you designers or anyone else needing a web developer, hit up my bro – Cameron, aka Digital Nomad!
Yesterday I took the plunge and got my hair cut short! I had been thinking about it over the last few weeks and knew I had to do it in order to help make a medical condition (psoriasis) more manageable for myself. I should be washing my hair a million times more often than I do with this skin issue, but with such long hair (far below boob length) the washing and drying just takes sooooo looooong (read: lazy). And I should be leaving my hair out as often as I can and not tying it up, so keeping it short means I won’t have the option!
My hair had been so long for years now that I knew I was really going to miss it, but it had to be done. I went with a medium length straight bob cut. I am thinking about getting some different brown foils put through as I am not really a fan of my natural mouse brown.
Will definitely miss my go-to fishtail braids, but I’ll just have to find some fun new ways to style this new do! Any suggestions, throw them at me!
P.S. Seems so silly to only bother with a crappy Instagram photo here considering we have thousands of dollars worth of camera gear sitting about 1 metre away from me, but I’m too lazy to get it out. :P
Umm. So I think I just found my most favourite wedding dress designer ever. Sarah Seven. Woah. I love nearly every one of her dresses, and all of the collections are just stunning. But this Fall 2013 collection may just be the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen. I can’t stop looking at them! That little leather jacket and dress combo is perfection.
If I was getting married, this find would make things awfully difficult. I would even consider having to get multiple dresses and doing a few wardrobe changes throughout the day. Good thing I’m not getting married then right! Ha!
