One of my goals is to share more links to blogs I love. It’s not that I don’t like sharing (really, I do), it’s just one of those things you take for granted – I’m always discovering new & inspiring blogs and I wouldn’t have found them unless I’d seen them somewhere else in the first place! So I’m going to remember to share more often the blogs that are making me happy, in case you’re yet to discover them too!

Kyla Roma // I’ve been following Kyla’s blog for quite a few months now and I’m still loving reading about her life on the Canadian prairie. Her blog is one of those rare kinds that I never want to miss reading an update from and it’s always a joy to be inspired by a woman making her big dreams come true!

Pretty Zoo

Pretty-Zoo // I recently-discovered Zoe’s blog and it’s quickly become one of my new favourites. She’s a fellow New Zealander living in Europe, so as well as having something in common, I love reading about her travels and life in Germany from her Kiwi-perspective. Also, she’s holding a kitten in the above photo, which counts for a lot :)

Chandeleah // She may be one of my best friends in the entire world (and one of my bridesmaids!) but she also writes a super-inspiring blog about her ongoing journey of fitness & healthy eating. This girl continues to blow me away with her seemingly in-exhaustable levels of enthusiasm, motivation & positivity – even amid the setbacks along the way. I love reading her blog & I’m proud to call her a friend in real life too :)

Magnolia Rouge // Now that our wedding is less than a year away (!), you’ll probably see a few wedding-blogs in these upcoming features. This is the blog from New Zealand Stationery designer Kate, from Ruby & Willow and she features lots of beautiful, inspiring real weddings on her blog. The thing that makes her blog different from all the other super-inspiring real wedding blogs out there is that she has lots of gorgeous Kiwi weddings on hers, which I love because that’s also where our wedding will be.


In other news, this week is shaping up to be Awesome (with a capital A!)

I interviewed a super-inspiring photographer this morning for work, which really lifted my spirits and to top off the day our Save-the-Date cards arrived in the post. It’s the first bit of wedding stationery that we’ve printed so far (obviously) so it’s pretty exciting for a paper-addict like me :)

Have a great week!

Hi there!

If you’ve popped over from Liberty Cottage as part of the Celebrating Blog Friendships party, welcome!

Firstly, a little about me: I’m from New Zealand and two years ago I moved to London to fulfill a lifelong dream to travel and see the world (and lets be honest that’s much easier to do from the UK than the middle of nowhere!) I’ve been scrapbooking about 3.5 years and I love having a creative outlet that lets me combine my love for photography, travel and paper goods :)


I started this blog almost exactly a year ago, mainly to connect with other crafty people out there in the world and I’ve discovered so many amazing, inspiring like-minded people by doing this.

But I was surprised to learn that as well as meeting new people, blogging would help me reconnect with Leah, one of my dearest friends from back home in NZ. When you live on opposite sides of the world, precious time spent on the phone or skype is usually spent catching up on all the big news of the last few months – but blogging gives a whole new dimension to our friendship:

  • I love reading the little stories from the weekend trips she takes around my beautiful home country.
  • I love seeing what she’s been scrapping lately and knowing which are her favourite products at the moment.
  • I love waking up in the morning to find an encouraging comment she’s left on my blog post from the night before.

And most of all I want to thank her for her generous heart and for going out of her way to help me out with a little project last month :) I have a sweet little gift for her on my coffee table right now (which will be in the post on Monday!) and I wanted to add a little personal touch to it…

…I realise I’m ruining a little bit of the surprise here but I wanted to share something crafty with you today!


If you’re taking part in the competition for the grand prize, here is your letter to collect:

I had so much fun taking this photo today! (and I should probably take this opportunity to confess my complete addiction to Thickers)

Now head on over to Chatty Crafty Arty Pig to continue the party and to get the next letter in the phrase!

Have a great weekend,

N x
