How To Pack Your Life In A Suitcase

For a person who hates packing, the process of moving to New Zealand changed me. I was a lot more organised and looked up packing hacks, made lists and researched a whole lot before packing my belongings. I had to part with a lot of my things and stick to stuff that I NEEDED and found absolutely necessary for my year abroad. Along my packing process, that lasted a whole week, I learnt that it's ok to leave some things behind and move forward. Parting with a majority of your wardrobe can be scary. If you're a recent high-school grad moving to college or if you're someone like me moving to a whole new country, you might find this helpful. I made sure that I packed everything I needed within my baggage limit! Impossible? It's easier than you think!


2015 : Free Wallpaper

With a new year comes new possibilities. Yeah I just thought of that and it sounded cleverer in my head but anyway, how's 2015 treating everybody so far? Mine's been beyond excellent. Little joys like going grocery shopping at the local superette, swimming in the ocean or just making new friends at a concert (haven't you seen my Instagram lately? tsk!) just makes me so grateful for everything. I've been incredibly lucky since I moved to New Zealand. I've seen most of the North Island plus an impending trip to Hobbiton this weekend. I hope everyone's having a great January and thanks for sticking around!

As a token of appreciation you can download this image as a desktop wallpaper to remind you that 2015 is the year of possibilities. At least that's what I'd like to think! The link is after the jump!



It's been quiet here on the blog primarily because I was busy MOVING TO NEW ZEALAND. If you've been following my Instagram closely, you'll notice the sudden surge in landscape pictures owing to goddamn beautiful NZ. I'll be studying Business for a year in Auckland. It's been 2 weeks so far & I'm soaking in every minute of every day. It was tough to part with most of my things but I'm glad that I get to start afresh with basically a capsule wardrobe. Don't worry though, I'll be back with some posts & of course a LOT of travel posts.

Welcome to my journey through Middle Earth. :)


Wish(list)ful Thinking : Autumn

I feel the itch to celebrate autumn now that it's October (My favourite / birthday month) but with the weather being anything but autumnal I can keep living vicariously through this wishlist here. Have a gander at it, will you? I predict denim dresses are the new dark floral dresses this fall. Denim is making a comeback and the 90's kid in me cannot be happier.
It's quite apparent that I have a soft spot for whimsical, novelty bags with my Pinterest board "Arm Candy," It's impractical, yes but isn't it too darn cute?
MAC is killing it with the new Rocky Horror Picture Show collaboration (pun unintended) but my mind is set on Lorde's Pure Heroine lipstick. I'm all for plums & dark colours this fall. Quite apparently.
