Daffodil Day Fundraiser + Vegan/GF cupcake recipe

Although I have changed roles at work and am no longer ‘in charge’ of social events like the Pink Ribbon Fundraiser we held in July, I still love to be involved! I helped my successor (the lady who now has my previous role) organise a fundraiser for Daffidol Day. The Cancer Society of New Zealand’s Daffodil Day symbolises…

The KeepCup that’s here to stay

In the lead up to #PlasticFreeJuly, I thought it was an appropriate time to finally purchase a KeepCup. I had been given a reusable cup from my mum, which she got for free after shopping at Farmers. I appreciated the gift and used it a few times, but soon realised it didn’t vibe with me…

Pink Ribbon Brunch

For those of you who follow my blog, you’ll know that I’ve already done a Pink Ribbon Afternoon Tea at my workplace. Seeing as I was already doing one Pink Ribbon event, I thought I might as well do another! What are Pink Ribbon events? They are events that help raise funds for the Breast…

Pink Ribbon Afternoon Tea

As mentioned in my previous blog, this year I am hosting two Pink Ribbon events. What are Pink Ribbon events? They are events that help raise funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation. They typically involve food – usually, breakfast, but this time around I did an afternoon tea instead. In 2017 over 3,600 kiwis hosted…

Gluten-free Shortbread

I am hosting two Pink Ribbon events within the next month (one at work and one with friends), so thought I would give some Pink Ribbon Shortbread a try. It was the first time I’ve ever used royal icing, and I think they turned out pretty well! The shortbread recipe is from here and the…

Love Exposure (Restaurant Review)

On our way to Mt Eden after watching Tully (great film BTW, I definitely recommend watching this one), my father and I kind of stumbled across Love Exposure. We went from planning on eating somewhere in Mt Eden, to seeing Nandos and deciding that would do instead, to noticing Love Exposure from the opposite side…

Brunch Club: The Lula Inn

Yesterday I went along to my first NZ Bloggers Brunch Club event and it was fantastic! The location for this month’s Brunch Club catch up was The Lula Inn and we participated in their “Bottomless Brunch”. We planned to meet at 11am for our two-hour booking, but in order to catch a ride into town…

Hello Friends & Allies (Café Review)

Overall: Hello Friends & Allies is my absolute favourite local café. Where are they? They are located at 93 Great South Rd, Epsom, which is known as ‘the Market Road Shops’. It’s a prime location, being situated at an intersection with four directions filled with hungry customers. It’s parking, however, is not so prime. I…

Tackling My Eating Habits

What does being healthy mean to me? That’s a question that I’ve often asked myself over the years. As part of my self-care and awareness journey, I am wanting to become healthier. What does that mean exactly? Well, although I may not be 100% certain what that means, I am certain that I want to…

Geeks On Sainsbury (Café Review)

Overall: I’ve been to Geeks On Sainsbury twice now and I’m definitely keen to go back again! Where are they? Their location, 1/55 Sainsbury Road, gives them enough privacy that they aren’t packed with people, but enough exposure that you don’t feel like you are hidden away. Both times I ate here, I happened to be in…
