Architect: Smart Design Studio

I was asked by Visual Strands, an online lifestyle Zine, to contribute to the July theme “Heritage”. The theme was completely open to interpretation so I wrote about my natural instinct towards decorating and design.

sip wine interview

Recently I was interviewed by a great new lifestyle blog called, Sip NZ Wine. The site is about what NZ does really well – wine, and is run by some women that know a thing or two about it. Caro, the creator who has six years in the industry, had the great idea to create a wine site so that you can meet the makers who passionately craft the wine for us to enjoy and related stories.

preparing the plants in the spring

Two lovely bloggers, Catherine and Anastasia and I thought it might be nice to post today on springtime in our city. I had the grand plan to go to the Britomart Farmers Market this Saturday. Even with the ominous looking clouds and a bad weather report, I still went and sure enough, when I arrived, the grey clouds finally gave away and the rain came down in bucket loads. Not exactly my kind of spring and nor the lovely weather that we’ve been experiencing in Auckland of late. So instead, feeling housebound much of the weekend, I began to dream about spring.

After the Kinfolk Gathering

Yesterday around my home, the morning after the Kinfolk gathering in Auckland, reminiscing about a lovely way to spend a Saturday evening.

Garlands of eucalypts and simple candlelight, created the perfect setting at Indie Home Collective where friends and strangers came together to share good food and wine and many laughs.

Life's Soundtrack

There’s often that same soundtrack playing in our home for a certain length of time and just like a perfume, forever the memories of these moments will be tied to the music.

Oh the beloved smart phone! Love them or hate them, they do have some fantastic features that can’t be denied and I’d find  it difficult to go back to the old style mobile phones now. I was chatting with a friend the other day about our favourite apps and I really enjoyed knowing her recommendations, so I thought it might be fun to share with you what I use on a day to day basis.  I’d also really love know if you have any apps that you sware by, other than the obvious social networking apps. I’m on the hunt for a good time management / to do list app for instance, so if any of you know any good ones – please share, along with anything else you use and love.
