If you’ve been following my blog or social media, you’ll know I love Kmart. Not only does it have good homewares but they’ve stepped in their beauty department too. A few months ago, I saw these metallic makeup brushes and I didn’t even hesitate snapping them up before they were sold out.
In the last year, Takapuna has gained an amazing selection of new eateries and restaurants. We’re spoiled for choice and the latest place I’ve tried is Artwok. We went for Father’s Day and it was a really good choice.
I know we’re 2 weeks in September but I’ve only had a chance to reflect on the crazy month of August. Last month was the most hectic month I’ve had this year. Work was the busiest and I have NZ Fashion Week on top of that.
Despite all of that, I had some amazing times which I’ll go through on today’s post.
Being petite, it is so hard to find a maxi dress that fits me well. Thankfully my sister found this floral maxi dress and I think it’s the one. I love this dress and I’m excited to show it to you today.

It’s been a while since I’ve shared my favourite beauty products so I thought I’d give you an update. I’ve tried a bunch of new products the past few months and these were the ones that I’ve loved and still using.
In the weeks leading up to NZ Fashion Week, I was struggling to find outfits to wear so to solve my outfit situation, I hit up Savemart, one of my top places to go thrifting/opshopping. Savemart can be hit or miss but my last trip was definitely a win because I found some great things.
If you want to see my full haul, continue down below.
Last month we checked out The Culpeper in the city for lunch. We were kindly given a voucher from The Nourish Group from my partner’s dad and it was about to expire. We couldn’t waste an opportunity to try a new food place so off we went.
I almost forgot to post about this haul so I apologise if it’s quite late! As they say, it’s better late than never, right? Anyway, I got this beauty haul back in June when I saw a random event in Facebook for the mid-year clearance sale at Hypermarket.
I’ve never been to Hypermarket but it’s a store in Wairau Park in the North Shore that sells beauty products. I didn’t know what to expect but I was blown away by their stock and amazing deals.
This winter, I became obsessed with capes. Sweater capes in particular because they’re warm, can hide multiple layers underneath and is super comfortable. The sweater cape I’m featuring today is my favourite and it was an unexpected find from Kmart!
Last month, I went to a beauty event by Bourjois Paris. It was on a Monday afternoon and it made my day because it was a beautiful way to rediscover the brand. We were introduced to their upcoming products and rediscovered their classics.
We also got to take home a goodie bag with the four products pictured above. I haven’t tried any of them before so I was really excited.
