Social Media Detox

There are so many beneficial aspects to social media but, as I'm sure we all know, it can also have negative effect. So here's why you should do a social media detox right now!

Blog Prop Haul

Blog Props

Happy November everyone! Can you believe that we only have two months left of 2016?!

I've been feeling that my blog photos have been lacking. I always envy the photos I see on other blogs. So I decided to use them as inspiration. I started taking note of what I liked and figuring out what elements I wanted to start including in my own photos. I took advantage of the Labour Day long weekend sales and picked up a few bits and pieces. Here is what I got! All prices are in NZD.
