New Zealand Trip!

This May I was lucky enough to be able to go on a month-long trip to New Zealand as part of a course on Indigenous identities to learn about the Aboriginal peoples there, the Māori. We spent a couple of days in Auckland and a couple days on the south island but most of the month was spent in the Wellington area.

The Sky Tower in Auckland

Some crazy trees that grow in NZ

The Auckland museum

The foggy city of Wellington

A beautiful hike in Belmont Regional Park

Cute little houses perched amongst the hills

Gollum! A trip to the Weta Cave 

The botanical garden in Wellington

Its been a while

I've really neglected my blog this past year. (Wow! a whole year :P ) Of course I could make excuses about busy and whatnot but so is everyone and I really want to make an effort to start posting on a regular basis again because I enjoy it. I like being able to have a place to express myself and talk to others about fashion and beauty. Some upcoming posts I'm planning include: photos from my trip to New Zealand, makeup and skincare faves, and summer outfits! Let me know in the comments if you have any requests :)
