Te Arai Roadtrip

The one thing I regret about the past five years living in New Zealand is the lack of exploring and adventures that I have failed to pursue. There is so much to see in New Zealand, always with different treasures to offer, always providing a beautiful view. Now that my friends and I have our licenses, the…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches

I know what you’re thinking…is THAT chocolate ganache in between those cookies? Is that even legal? Who knows, but it certainly is a killer of a combination. It is November here in New Zealand and every student is prepping for the onslaught of studying and exams in order to get through to the summer holidays….

Pore Strips

I have discovered my new favourite skincare miracle. Pore strips. Now, I know that I am very late to just on the bandwagon and that these things have been around for ages. However, before last Friday I was a pore strip virgin, and now…well now, I never want to go back. It’s a bit of…

Crunchy Nut & Honey Sandwiches

I figure that every day you should do at least one good deed, no matter how big or small. Why? I guess I believe that it is important to exercise selflessness, because it is so easy to get wrapped up in your own world that you lose the sight of how the other people around…

Bedford Soda & Liquor

You know the saying…”When in Rome…”, usually said in a case of when you end up giving in to the temptation of another indulgence, after very little persuasion, purely for the fact that you might as well just do it? Well…that would be why I have ended up at another place for lunch in the…

Auckland Wintergardens

Sometimes, it’s just nice to do something a little cultural and a little peaceful; something to calm you down and give you a breather from the big, bad world out there. For some, it may seem that walking through a series of glorified greenhouses filled with plants would be nothing more than a cause for yawning, but…

Tok Tok

Soooooooooo… I am probably the most useless and laziest blogger there is. It has been a long 2 months (!!!) since I have posted anything or even looked at my blog and I am frankly ashamed! However, now that the pressure from school has eased ever so slightly and the holidays are nearing, I feel…

Cereal Killa

Not long ago, I visited Casa Del Gelato and wrote about their delightful milkshake masterpieces. I have, yet again, struck milkshake gold, with a series of new and interesting concoctions – and yes, there is candy floss involved too! The name in itself, Cereal Killa, describes the effect of which this meal has had upon me…

Coffee Hazelnut Slice

Ever since I did a barista course at Chiasso down in the local village, I have developed an unprecedented taste for coffee. Before I hated the stuff, I just couldn’t understand why it was such a star in western society, but now I have jumped on the band wagon and coffee has become a part of my life…

Melbourne with Mumma Bear

I know this is slightly irrelevant to the Little City Window persona, stretching beyond the borders of New Zealand however, I can’t help but write about my visit across the Tasman Sea to the stylish city of Melbourne for my 18th birthday. Is that not one of the best 18th birthday presents ever?

Best Ugly Bagels

Everyone has those places they are determined to visit but never seem to get around to going. Amongst my long, winding list of these locations was Best Ugly Bagels: something I wouldn’t exactly refer to as a restaurant but is more than your average café. The classic rustic bread and topping combination made fancy but…actually…

Casa Del Gelato

America has many milkshake abominations, Australia has multiple milkshake crazes surfacing left, right and centre (check them out here, they are amazing!), and even little New Zealand has it’s very own chocolate-filled surprise hiding within Parnell, in a small, deceptive cafe called Casa Del Gelato. If you’re guilty pleasure is chocolate, this place is for you…
