So in my last blog post, I shared the different phases I went through during lockdown. I have reached another stage since writing that post and it’s the online shopping / buying phase. I have bought a few things online in the past week and I have felt a bit guilty about it. To turn this around, I thought I’d share the businesses and brands I want to support during this time.
I wasn’t planning on writing a blog post during this time but I’ve found writing a bit therapeutic. New Zealand has been on a lockdown for roughly 5 weeks and this is my 6th week of being at home. I have gone through a rollercoaster of thoughts and emotions during this time and I thought I’d put them down here and reflect on the past few weeks. I’m sure what I have felt during this unusual time is not unique as we’re all in a similar boat.
So I’ve lived in New Zealand for over 10 years and I have never been to the capital city, Wellington. I finally went a few weeks ago for my friend’s birthday and I wanted to make the most of my first time there.
If you want to know what I got up to, the things I did and bought and what I ate, continue down below.
I know you might be over the new year resolutions posts by now but I wanted my first blog post in 2020 to be about my goals for the year. It’s 2020 and I turned 30 which is a milestone and instead of dreading turning 30, I’m going to embrace it and be grateful that I’ve been alive for three decades. In this post, I also want to talk about how I want to move forward with this blog as I’ve been thinking about it for quite some time.
So last Sunday I checked out @Bangkok Restaurant. I haven’t been to this restaurant before as Kingsland is not my local area but I was given an opportunity to try their food. I am a big foodie and love Thai food so it was an offer I couldn’t resist. We tried a lot of dishes and overall had a great experience. If you’re after a new Thai place in Auckland to try, check out the post below.
Back in June, I shared my lounge decor when I finally finished updating the room. One weekend, I had a strong urge to re-do my bedroom. I’ve been wanting to change it up for quite some time but I was stuck on what I wanted it to be like. After getting rid of some old furniture and changing the layout of my room, I’m finally happy with it!
I posted it on my Instagram stories and I did get a few questions on where I bought some things so I’ve put it all in today’s blog post.
This Welcome to Wellness Box was sent to me last week and it was a great reminder that self care is quite important. The past few weeks have been hectic and I’ve been slacking off on taking care of myself. This box arrived just in time and I’m excited to share the contents with you. If you want to know more about it, continue down below.
It’s been two years since I posted about my lounge decor and it has changed so much from that old blog post. I’m finally at a point where I am so happy with my lounge and I’m excited to share it.
I’ll go through the changes in detail so if you want to know more, continue down below. Continue reading
