Last year was a big year of reading for me. I ended up reading 101 books and my goal was only 40! I wasn’t expecting to read a lot but we did have lockdowns and reading really became a habit for me. It took me some time to choose my top books but 2021’s list is pretty damn good.Continue reading
My Top 2020 Books
Last year one of my goals was to read more. I’ve always loved reading but over the years, I didn’t prioritise it so I only read occasionally. 2020 was the year that made me fall back in love with books and reading. I gave myself a goal of 25 books through the Goodreads Reading Challenge and I ended up reading 65 books! I thought I’d share my favourite ones I read. Continue reading
My Favourite Things
It’s been a while since I last shared my favourite things so I thought it’s about time I update you. This post will be a mix of beauty, fashion and lifestyle favourites. I’ve compiled everything I’ve loved and currently loving in this post so check them out below.
My 2018 Reading Pile
One of my goals this year is to read more. I bought quite a few books last year and in the past few weeks since the Christmas break and I hope I go through them all. Today’s post is all about my current reading list and ones that are by my bedside table.
It’s been a long time since I posted a thrift/opshop haul here on the blog. As much as I love thrifting, I haven’t had the time to go or if I have, I’ve only bought one or two pieces that weren’t enough to feature in a post.
A few weekends ago, I made the time to go to my favourite Hospice shop and I got lucky because I came home with a bunch of thrifted goodies.
I have a mixture of clothing, books and a kitchen item so continue on if you want to know everything I got.
Bargain Thrift Haul
I have another thrift haul to share today. I wanted to share this one because it is from a bargain bin of one of my favourite opshops.
As you may know, I love thrifting/opshopping and I go to a few different ones. One of the North Shore Hospice shops has a warehouse at the back of the normal shop where there are bargain bins and piles of clothing, books, appliances and furniture. The warehouse shop of the North Shore Hospice is the cheapest of all opshops I go to.
Travel Bag Essentials
Last week, I shared part 1 of my Melbourne trip. That trip was my first proper time in Australia, first overseas trip with my partner and my first overseas travel since moving to NZ nearly 10 years ago.
We went to Queenstown last year but that was just a domestic flight that did not require going through customs and needing a passport. Our Melbourne trip required that and I wanted to be prepared.
The things above are what I had in my bag on the plane and what I consider flight essentials. Check all the details down below.
