Here are some shots from Pont Alexandre III, Paris. Just thought I would post some of my outfit because it worked so well with the colour of the bridge!

firstly here are some pretty pictures of Paris because what are my blog posts without them!?
also thanks so much for some of the messages i had from people on my last post, I was definitely debating not speaking about it on here but i’m so glad i did!
on the topic of this blog post, i have been debating getting a little furry animal when i move out in three weeks but i’m not sure. my first thought was that i would get a bunny because they are adorable, intelligent and small. what i didn’t realise is that they need a huge amount of attention. this isn’t a big issue in the short term however i am interested in moving to somewhere in Europe in the next few years and if i want to travel now and then i will have to find a full time sitter for him or her. he will be looked after and loved but i don’t want owning a bunny to hold me back from wanting to travel while i’m young.
the next option was to just bite the bullet and get a cat/kitten. i have grown up with cats and absolutely adore them. what has stopped me from this is pretty much the same. even though it feel like they are a bigger commitment then bunnies i don’t know if i believe that any more. they are independent and can be left for a weekend which is perfect if i chose to live in England as I’m keen on taking weekends away with cheap flights! cats are also much less fragile and i like to think overseas travel would be less terrifying for them with my past experiences.
let me know what you think, i’m super curious!Read more →
first of all here is a pretty picture of the Army Museum which i initially mistook for the Rondin Museum because i’m a complete noob. nevertheless it was absolutely gorgeous, i’ll grab some more images soon!
on another completely different note i wanted to talk about something thats been on my mind for a long time now. i stream on Twitch.tv, its never been a big deal to me, in fact i really love it. through streaming i have created a community of amazing people from all over the world who come to chat, chill out and play games together. there is definitely a stigma around gaming and game streaming which is quite negative and stereotypical and i think its something that has begun to bother me a little.
i have never felt comfortable telling people that i’m a streamer or even a gamer for that matter. in fact most of my friends didn’t know about it for a long time and i certainly didn’t speak about it publicly as i’ve been scared of being judged. however this isn’t something i feel should be hidden any more. women can be gamers just as easily as they can be designers or accountants or lawyers or stylists(etc). i know some absolutely incredible women who are streamers just as i know some absolutely amazing men who are streamers, people who have even made a living out of streaming and now live their lives earning money from doing what they love.
female streamers aren’t cam girls, this is something i get all the time even from my friends, which is pretty lame in my opinion. being the minority on twitch definitely brings viewers faster and with more ease in the beginning however if people don’t like your personality you aren’t going to gain a following and certainly not a loving community of people. gamers also aren’t slobs. in all areas of life you will find lazy people, gaming isn’t an exception. however there are also some incredibly hard working people in the industry, i think its quite unfair to judge people by their stereotypes especially when its so incorrect.
i’m not going to name my twitch channel because i’m keeping my day job separate from it for the time being however i would love to answer any questions. it definitely isn’t a career path for me and it never will be but its a hobby and i love it. if your still here(high five) and your curious, here are some awesome streamers who might tickle your fancy if your interested in some free entertainment. thanks so much for reading, i really appreciate it!

came home today to a pack of macaroons from my boyfriend and brewing tea by Storm & India Tea Sisters which was just the best thing ever, i’m a very lucky lady. here are some things i have been loving this weekend!
as you may have realized i will be leaving my current residence to a new place in Auckland. fun times are yet to be had though as the room is currently very dark and needs with some doing up, i thought it would be cool to show the progress of the room on the blog. below will be some not so pretty pictures of the place i will be living then later on there will be some (hopefully) pretty pictures! yay, i’m excited for interior design adventures! feel free to let me know any opinions or inspiration images/posts.
i thought i’d give you some relevant images above of some Parisian apartments (hehe relevant, i wish i lived in Paris).
ok good stuff!

currently i am juggling university and three jobs. i want to say that it was a good idea but i’m just not too sure yet. what i have realised in the process however is that iCal is fantastic and its taking over my physical planner for sure. i can’t imagine this is very entertaining.
i thought i would post a couple images of the park next to the Eiffel Tower which i liked. definitely missing Paris, I’m missing all of Europe actually. being back at uni has made me feel a little sad about how much i loved being in England particularly and how i won’t be going back for another couple years.
i won’t lie to you, i have been doing some research to see if i can potentially get there earlier… mostly just hoping and wishing someone will notice me and offer me a highly paid job in London where i live happily ever after. that however probably won’t be the case and so yet another year of a degree i’m not to interested in will commence.
i didn’t mean to make that a little morbid however i have been feeling quite unsure about why i’m still at uni recently(for the past couple years) just with how much work i’ve had and i’m super ready to get out there. tell me i’m not the only one??Read more →
are these not the prettiest berries you have ever seen? we had the most amazing day in Prague, the weather was so warm, we had the most delicious meal(though it was a bit too pricey for my liking) and the city looked amazing.
thanks to Jared he took a little snap of me in my most perfect bitchy resting face but doesn’t my bag look cute! i have completely fallen in love with this mydeerfox bag, it was so perfect for traveling around and holding all my essentials!Read more →
at the moment i am pre planning working three jobs while also doing uni “full time” and perhaps also having a social life(will let you know how that one goes). anyway on the topic of stress and distressing(learning how to segue from the best 😉 i have been drinking a massive amount of tea recently. and i’m not talking about the kind you have with milk though i do love milky tea, my digestive system does not(maybe tmi… i don’t know). i’m talking about the fancy tea with all of the delicious flavors you didn’t know existed and oh the pretty packaging!
i believe Storm and India the tea sisters have pretty much nailed fancy on the head! not only does almond macaroon tea smell amazing but it also has one of those subtle tastes that you can happily drink for hours. i can’t say i’m the best at describing smells or tastes however i think the name gives you a pretty good indication. the other thing about drinking tea is that i always feel so posh doing it even if i do drink tea 5 times a day or more. that’s just me? ok.
on a side note if you would like to keep up with my blog you should definitely give bloglovin a try, its like your facebook feed(if you follow bloggers) but without the rubbish click bait. You can follow me there too, yay!
ok lovely! thanks for readingRead more →
some might find this kind of gross as i know a lot of people don’t like pigeons, i too was a little put off until we went to Krakow but i’ve had a complete change of heart after seeing how friendly they were! on our last day we really didn’t have much we wanted to do and admittedly i didn’t have anything to wear for my uncles wedding the next day(very poor planning on my part). so we spent an hour in Zara(probably my favorite store) looking for something to wear, which was successful and then wandered around. fun fact, Mc Donalds is really delicious in Poland, that’s definitely one of the weirder things to blog about but it was the nicest cheap meal i’d had the whole time we were in Europe.
following delicious nom noms, Jared announced we should find bird food and feed the pigeons as he had heard they were very friendly there so we spend at least another hour just sitting in the square surrounded by hungry pigeons who were more than happy to sit on you if it meant there was a snack involved. one of the weirder things was how warm their feet were, i mean i knew they weren’t cold blooded but it was still kinda cute. anyway we didn’t catch any disease so don’t worry about that, highly recommend as a Krakow activity.Read more →
definitely not one of the better photos of me, i look a little strange but it was a super pretty at the Prague Castle. unfortunately i was unable to take photos through i did take some in the cathedral which was pretty mindblowlingly beautiful.
such amazing weather! so much delicious food and weirdly so many absinthe shops(?)Read more →
