HEY, I’M ALIVE!

HELLO WORLD! Apologies for the radio silence here this week. I just had the most tumultuous and stress filled week and I didn’t have the energy or emotional capacity to write. Plus, I was super, duper busy. Life. Skip down a few paragraphs if you want to ignore my self-absorbed whinging. I understand. Architecture is…

I’m Fun and Cool and Stuff

I sometimes feel like you guys must have a really poor impression of me; that I’m this little, crazed and sad person who whinges all the time. I mean, I am kind of like that sometimes, but I’m actually a pretty happy, bubbly young lass. Usually my whinging and grumpiness is hardly noticed. I’ll apologise…

Courtesy Not Courtship

A few months ago I wrote a wonderfully cheerful and sassy post all about how happy I was to be a single lady. I was single, independent and incredibly smug about it too. Then all of a sudden, BOYS. Boys, boys, boys. Boys. Boys. WHY. Universe, you have a terrible sense of humour. This is…

Coping With Loneliness

Loneliness hits me like a punch in my stomach. It’s a crippling, horrifying and disconnected feeling. My thoughts turn dark and inwardly cruel when I feel like I haven’t connected with someone properly, or I feel as if I’m about to lose someone. The air suddenly feels hot and claustrophobic, I can barely breathe. I…

Better & Brighter

This week has actually been pretty damn awesome. Mainly because of Jurassic 5, but also because of these things which have happened since the snapshots in my post “Moments” (because apparently I love capturing sweet moments): + J5, J5, J5!!!! Oh my god, J5! + Dancing around the house, breakfast and a rushed goodbye coffee…

Jurassic 5 Live To Mic Gig Review

Wednesday 8th April 2015 @ Shed 6, Wellington The crowd milled about in the awkward venue, chatting in anticipation. The room lights went off and the stage lights came crashing on with the flick of a beat from the two DJs and one by one the emcees lurched onto stage; lyrics spitting flawlessly. From the…

Moments

This is just a little list of little things that have made me want to skip around and jump for joy this week. Life is good, life is sho’nuff good. First though, something for you!   + I bumped into a friend on the street and she told me I had a “sparkle in my…

10 Ways To Feel Instantly Better

Today I was an absolute grump. I was angry, I was melancholic. I sighed and I frowned. I was on the verge of throwing things and I definitely threw some mean words. I made dramatic swoons. At one point I declared, whilst collapsing dramatically into a pile, “why am I so broken?”. I then proceeded…

Happy Easter!

It’s officially chocolate day! Yay! Hope you have all had a wonderful day filled with family and chocolate and religious-y stuff – if that’s your thing. I started my day off hungover as hell (I drank like 2 wines last night, this is torture), but thankfully, due to the extra hour in bed (daylight savings,…

Healthy Food Blog Roundup

I would first like to say a massive thank you for all of your kind words of encouragement and support in regards to my last post. I feel so blessed. I’m glad I could touch and connect with so many people on such a deep level just through my story and my words. I believe…
