My Favourite Things #31


Liner Note Kids Shirt
This T-Shirt brand is designed by NZ YouTuber Charli Marie who is now living in London.  I loved the designs so much I bought one before the cut off date.  As you can see I got 'High-Def Hopes and Dreams'. I just love the typography and the design of it, I know I'll be wearing it a lot.
 
Phone Case
On Boxing Day I checked out Ebay and found some cheap phones cases and bought one which turned up this week. Of course it's pink, it's a hard case so hopefully it will protect it but I very rarely drop my phone (hope I don't jinx it).
 
Disney Vlogs
Lately I've been watching a lot of YouTube mostly vlogs by Pixels and Pixie Dust which are two sisters from Auckland who are obsessed with Disney.  One of the sisters, Megan, is currently dong the Disney International College Program which is something I really want to do and have applied for (eek!) So I've been enjoying learning what it will be like.
 
Hope you all enjoyed this post and have an amazing weekend!

Wanderlust Tag

Hey

I've seen a couple of NZ bloggers do this tag which was created by Genie from Bunny Eats Design so I thought I would do it as I do have a serious case of Wanderlust.  Travelling is something I really want to do, to visit and experience different places around the world.

Where was your first plane to?
My first was to Wellington when I was in Year 9 so I might of been 14.  It was around the time when they were going to stop the Overlander Train between Auckland and Wellington.  My parents wanted to ride it, I think I wanted to as well, so we flew to Wellington had a couple of days there and rode the train back home. 

Where have you travelled to that you would love to visit again?
I haven't been to a lot of places in NZ and no where overseas yet.  Wellington is definitely somewhere I would love to got to again, something different from Auckland. I've only been twice but I loved it.
 
Rotorua is pretty much my favourite place. My family and I have small holidays there almost every year and I just enjoy them so much whether we're visiting the attractions; Rainbow Springs or if we're just walking around the city.

You’re leaving tomorrow, money is no object, where are you going?
Without hesitation Europe, mostly France and Italy but I love to explore the whole continent.  I'm just really fascinated with it's long history, the architecture and of course the art. Museums and art galleries are the places I'll most likely head to first especially in Italy. The Italian Renaissance was my favourite period of art and am thinking of studying it further, I also studied ancient Rome a lot and would love to visit the ancient sites.

Preferred method of travel; planes, trains or car?
Hmm probably trains first; you can just sit and relax and see parts of the country which you would have otherwise not encountered.  Next plane, it's the fastest mode of transport and then car which can be a bit tiresome.

Favourite travel website?
Hmm I don't know, maybe Grabaseat just to see all the deals and dream.

Where would you travel to just eat the food?
Italy, that is all.

And suddenly I'm hungry - Photo's from Pinterest

Is there a place you would never go again?
I can't think of anywhere, I haven't been to many places.

Can you recite your passport number from memory if asked?
I've never had a passport but will get one soon.

Do you prefer the Window, Aisle, or Middle seat?
Hmm it will have to be between the window and aisle seat, definitely not the middle but would be bearable if I was between people I knew.  Maybe window for short haul flights and aisle for long haul, I hate having to move past people and what are you suppose to do if they're asleep?!

How do you pass the time on the air plane?

Music for sure and podcasts as well. I would also bring a book and if it was available watch a movie.

That's the tag. Even though I've never been anywhere really I always imagine all the places I would love to visit.


If you want to do the tag feel free to! Here are the questions:

Where was your first plane to?
Where have you traveled to that you would love to visit again?
You’re leaving tomorrow, money is no object, where are you going?

Velvetine Dash

Hey

Last year I made a couple of purchases which I didn't manage to blog about so here they are.  This post was suppose to go up yesterday but I was distracted by the Golden Globes, I just love award season.
 
At the end of the year news broke that Lime Crime soon won't be available anywhere in NZ but the website.  Shipping from the website is $10 which is way too much for me.  I have a couple (four) Lime Crime lipsticks but I don't have any of the Velventines so I quickly jumped onto Makeup.co.nz and got myself one as well as a Tangle Teezer.
 
 
I've always wanted a Tangle Teezer just as an alternative and would be easier to take around with me rather than a bulky hairbrush. Of course I got a pink and purple one because I like everything to be aesthetically pleasing.
 
I had a difficult time deciding on what Velvetine shade to get but I eventually decided on Red Velvet because I'm a sucker for a red lipstick.
 
 
The colour is amazing! Sooo pretty. It goes on nicely, dries quickly, and of course it stays on for hours so I don't have to paranoid all day whether or not I look weird with worn off lipstick.
 
Hope you all enjoyed this post!

My Favourite Things #30

My Favourite Things is back for 2015!

Finding a new blog design
For a while now I've been wanting to give the blog a makeover.  I've been searching for designs, mostly on Esty, and there is so many to choose from! I know I want it to be simple and classic and not be too confusing.  Looking at the designs makes me more excited about blogging which is good.  I'm also thinking of changing the blog's name, I'm not sure yet.
 
Just a little inspiration from Pinterest
 
New Twitter follower
So yesterday Shaaanxo  asked her followers to tweet her their favourite video of hers (does that sound right?) So I did and then I checked Twitter and I was like OMG! SHE FOLLOWED ME!!! I was seriously freaking out but only internally, I was on the couch with my sister and Mum and they would have thought I was weird. So yeah, that was the highlight of day/week.
 
Buddy got a haircut
Our dog got a haircut today. I posted a photo on Facebook but I'll put it on here too as his cuteness just needs to be shared.  He's also very soft and looks 10 years younger.
 

Hope enjoyed this post and have an amazing weekend. My sister has a rugby tournament at the Mount tomorrow so I might go to that as I have nothing else to do.
