Skin Care (A product I just stumbled across that will change your life)

Anyone who knows me well will know that I have fought a messy battle with persistent spotty skin. Anyone who has experienced the same will know how frustrating it is to constantly be spending money on trying all available products. How it knocks your confidence to the point where you’d really rather stay at home…

The Great New Zealand Road Trip

New Zealand Road Trip – Queenstown to Franz Josef (and back) If you live in New Zealand then there is no excuse not to have this particular trip on your Bucket List, for the citizens of the world I’m giving you yet another reason to add New Zealand to your “Countries I must visit before…

The Truth Over Illusion

The awareness of the decisions we make within a moment helps us to seek the truth rather than maintaining an illusion. Seeing something for what it is can be hard rather than choosing to see something as we wish it to be. Whether that be a person or a relationship, an environment, a situation and…

Something to get you Writing and Thinking

One of my favourite ideas or concepts I’ve come across through my readings (The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, if you fancy a read too) and something that I remind myself about daily is that, there is nothing that you can imagine that doesn’t already exist for you. My interpretation of this is basically we are…

The “Shoulds” and the “Musts”

The concept of “Should dos” and “Musts dos” in our lives (an idea about living a life aligned with our authentic selves). WARNING: The word should is used to excess. The Origin of Should Should, is how other people influence and see fit for us to live our lives. They are a set of cookie…

If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of hearing about this dream location or viewing the growing number of snapshots showcasing breath taking views from highpoints in the valleys, where the sunrise features as the backdrop to a plethora of billowing and grandiose hot air balloons this will be…

The Distance Between

The distance between railway tracks, 143.5cm (4ft 8 ½ inches). Why this particular measurement? The first train carriages were built with the same tools as horse drawn carriages. So, why that particular distance between the wheels of the carriage? Because that was the width of the old roads that the carriages had to travel along….

Regardless the study enthralled me and mythical or not I enjoyed it. Here’s the gist of it. Scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropping…

The Haze (Self Help Piece)

When life gets overwhelming, it feels like you’re snowed under with tasks, the mundane routines we so often get stuck in and the feelings and emotion that can infiltrate our mind and bodies. The mist sets in, the haze starts to descend and before we know it we’re driving down a foggy highway with no…

The Generation of Instant Gratification

A generation not used to waiting leads to unsettled and anxious hearts. When presents were reserved for birthdays and Christmas, but now if we see something we want we buy it. Because it was there, we had the means, and well, we wanted it. We’re hungry, and that delicious Sunday roast that our mothers would…

The Youth of New Zealand (Poem)

I recently wrote and shared some poetry at a small spoken word gathering (nothing short of terrifying) as it was one of the first poems I’ve actually ever written. WELL not including primary school and my genius Acrostic Poems about Cats. C – Cuddley Creature A – Asleep all the time T – Tickley Fur…

Somethings Just Don’t Matter

Front and center, it’s your pride and joy for all to see. It’s your picture of an adventurous day or a delicious meal, it’s your video of something funny you captured, it’s an opinion or information you want to share with others and it’s the well formulated response you give when your content gets a…
