So two weekends ago, I had a last minute trip to Hamilton. I wasn’t planning on going at all but I realised I didn’t want to miss out so I joined a few lovely blogging gals for a quick day trip. We went there for brunch which I already posted about so this post will have everything else we got up to during the day and the cool things I saw while we were there.
So every month, a bunch of NZ bloggers have brunch together for a monthly brunch club. I’ve been to so many of them and it’s a great way to meet other bloggers, make new friends and try new food places. It’s mainly in Auckland but April’s brunchclub location was at Two Birds Eatery in Hamilton.
Opshopping or thrifting is my favourite way to shop. Most of my clothes and even bags are from opshops. I love bargains and finding one of a kind pieces that not everyone would have. Savemart is one of the places I go opshopping because there’s one close to where I live and it’s huge that I’m bound to find something I like.
Last month’s brunchclub was at The Lula Inn located in the waterfront, beside the Auckland Maritime Museum. I’ve never been to this restaurant before so I was quite excited to try their Bottomless Brunch with some awesome blogging gals. Food plus cocktails on a Sunday? YES PLEASE.
If you’ve been a follower of my blog or other social media, you’d know how much I love Kmart. Kmart is one of my favourite places to shop because you can basically get anything there for such an affordable price. It’s been a while since my last Kmart haul so today is a mix of clothing, homewares, beauty and travel pieces. I also got some on sale which is even better.
The food scene in Auckland is so exciting. There are so many new food places now and my list of places to go to keeps growing. The latest addition to the scene is UMU Pizza. If you love a good pizza, this is a place to check out. I’ve been twice and have tried 6 out of the 8 pizzas they have on offer so if you want to know my thoughts and more info about this place, continue down below.
I mostly share my beauty favourites here on my blog but to change it up a bit, I wanted to share some of the items I’ve been loving that don’t really fit into the beauty category. This favourites post has a good mixture from technology, health and fitness to books and TV shows. So if you want to know what I’ve been loving recently, check out below.
When the invitation to have breakfast at The Sugar Club landed in my inbox, I basically wanted to say yes straight away. I’ve been to The Sugar Club once and I know it’s such a great place to dine. I knew the event had something to do with coffee but I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in last week that it’s for the launch of L’OR Espresso.
During my last spontaneous Kmart trip, I discovered a new section in the beauty isle dedicated to OXX Studio. I’ve seen this brand in Kmart before but the old packaging looked more like kid’s/toy makeup. It seems like OXX has rebranded and grew up a bit because the new packaging is more chic. I picked up a few things and I’ll share my thoughts if these products are worth trying.
