Sailing Greece

After a painstakingly long time in transit (NZ – Doha – Athens – Mykonos), we finally touched down in island paradise. Lacking sleep, temperatures in their high 20s, and starving, we arrived at our accommodation expecting to drop our bags and having to come back at 2pm. Luckily, the stars had aligned and our room … More Sailing Greece

Travel Tips

Let’s wander where the wifi is weak. It’s that time of year again, time for a much-needed break from reality. Time to swap the days working behind a desk for one’s jumping off a sailing boat in the Mediterranean ocean, to swap the porridge and salads for fresh fruits and gyros, to swap the cold nights … More Travel Tips

Tumeric Latte

These have been one of my many latte additions this winter as I curb the morning coffee with another hot drink. Lately, it’s been Chai lattes (recipe coming soon) or hot cups of tea…until a good friend of mine introduced me to these. The key ingredient is turmeric (as the name suggests) which is a … More Tumeric Latte

Satya Chai House

First things first, this place lived up to the hype. It was amazing, the food was so so yummy and the chai was the perfect balance of spicy and sweet. Oh and I can’t forget how cool the atmosphere and decor were – it truly took you a world away! Now, I’ve been dying to … More Satya Chai House

Roasted Carrot Soup

This winter sucks. Yes, I probably say that every winter but for some reason, this one feels worse than the rest…at least for right now, in this moment. It’s also the first I’ve been counting down the days to escape to the European summer. In less than 30 days, I will find myself on sailing between … More Roasted Carrot Soup

Mercer Bay Loop

Another long weekend calls for another adventure out west! So a plan was formed, and thankfully the weather pulled through for a pretty stunning afternoon. Post gathering up the squad and some snacks (an absolute essential!) we headed out to see what the Waitakere Ranges had installed for us today on the Mercer Bay Loop … More Mercer Bay Loop

Quinoa Porridge

Frosts have fallen almost overnight and with these cold temperatures comes, despite our best wishes; summer is well and truly over. All of this makes getting out of bed in the morning harder and harder, particularly to hit the gym before work. At least I know I have a delicious, warming breakfast and a hot … More Quinoa Porridge

Astro Photography

I, alongside many other New Zealanders, braved the ice cold morning and caught a glimpse of the Eta Aquarid Meteor shower which I stumbled upon via the trusty Facebook. Although hesitant at first, I mean, would it really be that cool and was getting up before 3 am worth it? Yes, yes and a hundred … More Astro Photography

Protein Pancakes

Some Sundays you’re out of bed by 7:30 and off to Lululemon yoga for a fab morning workout, others you’re feeling a little lazier and it’s a pancake in bed kinda morning. Today was the latter. And you know what, that’s absolutely fine! I’m all about that balanced life – I say after winning and consuming a … More Protein Pancakes

Aubergine Pizzas

I’ve been wanting to try these out for a while now although aubergines have been killer spenncy and they kinda seem like a dinner party nibble more than a full meal for one (but I could probably eat about 20 of these in one sitting). And boy did they turn out well, exceeding expectations without … More Aubergine Pizzas
