Has the AI Takeover Already Begun?

I’ve seen a lot of news articles lately about the risk of artificial intelligence (AI) from Elon Musk from the likes of The Guardian, Fortune, CNBC and Vanity Fair to name just a few. And it got me thinking, have we already been taken over by AI whilst not even being aware of it? Are…

What No One Tells You About Doing a PhD

I am currently quite a way into my PhD and I have already realised there are a lot of things people don’t warn you about. They tell you that it’s hard work; a lot of reading, writing and thinking. But they don’t tell you just how much it takes a toll on your mind. I…

Girls Night at the Movies: July

Girls Night at the Movies hosted by Hoyts Cinemas here in NZ has become somewhat of a ritual for my friends and I. We now try and attend every one they host as an excuse to have a night out like seemingly normal twenty-something year olds. Goodie bags on arrival surely help as well! Now,…

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes…

Well, you may have noticed things look a little different! You’d be right. Change is upon us – and sometimes change is good! I decided it was finally time for a change – a change that had been slowly happening with the content; from a daily blog to a review/opinion blog. But I finally decided…

Allbirds – the Comfiest Shoes in the World?

Allbirds, a small company started via crowdfunding, claim to have made the comfiest shoes in the world. I said “prove it”! I bought the Allbirds runners – I have been looking for a comfy running type shoes for everyday wear and these seemed perfect! Allbirds are different than your average activewear shoe. The key thing:…

Ethique Shampoo, Conditioner and Cleanser Bars

It’s official. I’m obsessed with finding products that make my hair feel amazing. Like other-people-randomly-touch-your-hair-because-it-looks-so-soft amazing. And I may have found an Eco-friendly product that helps do just that! Let me introduce you to Ethique (reader, meet Ethique – Ethique, meet reader), a New Zealand brand specialising in solid beauty bars. Ethique aims to be a sustainable…

Sally Hansen Color Therapy

I was lucky enough to be sent two polishes, the cuticle oil and the top coat from Sally Hansen’s Color Therapy range to trial from Beauty Review (if you live in NZ and want to become a part of this beauty community, sign up here). And this is definitely one of those products I will be…

Some Pretty Good Cupcakes…

I have a secret. I don’t like to brag, but I make some pretty good cupcakes. If you are a follower of this blog, you probably already know that I LOVE baking. Not the biggest fan of eating it all, but baking is the greatest stress reliever there is (well, besides organising and tidying things…

Grill and Shakes, Auckland

This could be seen as a story about how a change of plans turned into the greatest find. Ever. It was only yesterday, a cold Saturday evening, when my friends and I were perusing Instagram and found pictures of those fancy milkshakes. You know the ones! Those with a crazy amount of random toppings that…

Better Burger, Auckland

The ultimate foodie question: is Better Burger really the better burger? And I have to say, it’s pretty damn good. Better Burger, now with three locations in Auckland CBD, has potentially one of the smallest menu’s at any restaurant in New Zealand. But this is what I absolutely LOVE about this place. There are four burgers…

Goodness Break-up Make-up Balm Review

It’s been an interesting week; stress upon stress upon stress. So what better way to relax than to sit back and review a product from a pretty awesome New Zealand brand! I have used other products by Goodness so I was super excited to trial this one through Beauty Review NZ (thanks guys!) – especially because of…

Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Makeup Remover

Well, this is the first post on my new blogging journey. No more daily blogging; more blogging about things I love. And one of those things is trying new beauty products. It’s a hazard (to my wallet). I will try and post weekly, most likely reviewing something I’ve used or something I’ve done that was…
