Hug-A-Pug Day

Hey guys! So, I am now down in the windy city of Wellington, which is going to be my home for the next 5 years. I have been incredibly busy as it is O-Week (orientation week), possibly the most hectic, emotionally draining and most enjoyable week of my life so far! It’s always scary going…

Wenderholm Regional Park

Update: I am leaving Auckland tomorrow, as I am moving down to Wellington to study at Victoria university. This means that Little City Window is officially relocating, still maintaining the city living, but on the other end of the North Island. It’s going to be such an adventure and I will be continuing on my blog…

Madam Woo

Asian fusion is by far one of my favourite types of cuisine. It cannot be denied that it is one of the most full-flavoured, experimental, exciting styles of food in the world that I have encountered. This particular form of cuisine is incredibly popular in New Zealand, namely Auckland, as there is a wide range…

Passionfruit, Lemon & Ricotta Cupcakes

There comes a time in a period of dieting, when boredom and hunger overrules any desire for a bikini body. Then, one turns dreamily towards those gleaming kitchen utensils, the blocks of golden butter and jars of sugar, with only one thing on their mind and one word on their lips. Baking. Now, I tend to…

Part Five: Lake Tekapo

New Zealand is the proud owner of many beautiful lakes, some with unfathomable depths and extraordinary diameters. Lake Tekapo covers an area of 83 square kilometres, which is relatively small in comparison with lakes such as Lake Taupo and Lake Wakatipu, but makes up for size in it’s beautiful crystal clear waters and stunning neighbouring landmarks. 

Part Four: Milford Sound

Reportedly coined as the “eighth wonder of the world”, Milford Sound is the full monty of scenic views. Undoubtedly, it is one of the most magnificent sights I have ever encountered in my life and words can’t really describe the sheer size and phenomenon that is really is. The day began with an early start,…

Part Three: Wanaka and Queenstown

Now for the biggest, busiest and most expensive part of the trip! Wanaka and Queenstown. The capitals of cool, both in temperature and style. Wanaka kind of reminds me of a baby Queenstown. Sitting right on the edge of Lake Wanaka, the hustle and bustle of the bars and restaurants, constantly brimming with customers, fills the…

Part Two: Franz Josef Glacier

When you read the word ‘glacier’…what comes to mind? Huge expanses of ice that sit just on the cusp of the earth itself? Or something a of a lesser scale, perhaps? Or do you have absolutely no idea? I ask this mainly because glaciers are quite underestimated in their monstrous magnificence, and I doubt that many people have…

Part One: The West Coast

The first day began with a very early start for a “holiday”. In order to catch the first bus, Emily and I had to be at the YMCA hostel in Christchurch by 7:30, meaning a 6am wake up in order to organise ourselves for the trip ahead, which really meant me staying in bed until…

The Kiwi Experience

HAPPY NEW YEAR! This time I have a good excuse for not posting for a while. I have been indulging the wanderlust within me, having taken two weeks out to travel the South Island of New Zealand. Beginning at Christchurch and moving anti-clockwise around the world-renowned home of the 8th wonder of the world. Firstly, being…

Lemon Berry Swirl Mini Cheesecakes

Lemon berry swirl mini cheesecakes…what a mouthful! Now, I know that beginning this blog post with a pun may have been a bit of a cheesy decision…(haha sorry I couldn’t resist) as I always tend to get mixed reviews on my quite obviously terrible puns, but I had to coax you in somehow if somehow…

Coconut Oil and Honey Hair Mask

My thought process with this post was that summer is coming up and I need my hair looking healthy and feeling great if I am going to be growing it out again. Also, Mum recently bought some more coconut oil which we haven’t had in the house for a while, so I took the opportunity…
