Luxury Accommodation in the Clouds at Lakehouse Joela

A couple of seconds walk from the start of the Frankton Track (one of Queenstown’s best easy walking tracks) is Lakehouse Joela. Set back amongst the trees, Lake Wakatipu in all it’s beautiful glory, Lakehouse Joela is one of Relax It’s Done‘s jewel in the crown. Architecturally mind boggling, this ’tilt shift’ house was built (and I don’t really know my architectural terms but I know what I like) to take in the lake and all it’s surrounds in one fell swoop. You can see The Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Queenstown and still feel like you’re hidden away in...

Aida Maeby Collaboration

Aida Maeby. Gorgeous women’s wear designed and made in Wellington by the gorgeous Jess Matthews. I’ve been following this clever lady along for a while now and she was one of my Christmas small business picks. She recently collaborated with the equally amazing Lucy of Born in Daylight  textiles and magic was born. A brand new collection due for release mid February. I’m so excited to have these two on my blog as they are the epitome of what my work is about. Small business, collaboration and their values align so perfectly with mine. I caught up with Jess...

A gorgeous collection of prints to swoon over and ultimately place in your front room. After buying them of course. On for an extended period (Monday 20th March)...

A great list of questions which started with 1) One you haven’t seen 2) One guilty pleasure 3) One you’ll never guess I love 4) One totally underrated 5) One that changed my life. Films have been part of my life for so long now. They make me feel comfy and uncomfy, they remind me of my dad (Sunday James Bond sessions). I still get excited about going to the cinema, the whole experience of buying the ticket,...

Christchurch for walking, art and cafes

Christchurch is a hum hum humming with things to see and do and should be on your New Zealand ‘must do’ list at all costs. It’s one of the most walkable and rideable towns in this fine land and with all the new trails and places to visit you’ll be hard pressed to be bored. I recently visited and took the opportunity to get on their Spark Bikes they have there. I rode around with Bike Share and experienced shopping, cycle lanes, places to eat and drink and icecream from the comfort of my saddle. It’s also one of the...
