Mount Maunganui Trip

A few weeks ago, we took a trip to Mount Maunganui in Tauranga for a a mini-holiday. Although I only had a few days off work, it was a much needed break. We went the week before Easter because we thought it would be less busy. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t the greatest but we still made the best of it.

I’ll share what we got up to and the food we tried down below so if you’re thinking of heading to the Mount any time soon, this post may give you some ideas.

Talk Beauty NZ Haul Part 1

This much awaited haul is here! I posted a sneak peek of it on my Instagram and FB page and people were quite interested. A few weeks ago, I went to a beauty event called Talk Beauty NZ and I had a lovely afternoon learning about new skincare, makeup and haircare products, meeting fellow beauty lovers and best of all, we got to take home an amazing haul of products.

I’ve split the haul into two parts because there are way too many products to show you. Today is part 1 and exactly a week from now will be the Part 2.

miann auckland desserts gateaux

Miann

Dessert has to be my favourite type of food. I’m always up for something sweet and I swear I have a different stomach for dessert as no matter how full I am, I could still have room for it.

I’ve now been a couple of times so I can give you a bit of a review and show you the beautiful desserts Miann has to offer.
