Making yoga all that much brighter with Courage My Love

I only got into yoga last year after years and years of moaning “pilates is my thing”. One class and I was hooked. You see I like things I find hard, and I like to sweat and this class made me sweat. Only thing about it was my boring as boring black running tights that I had to wear. I wanted some kerpow with my vinyasa. Know what I mean? Last year I also joined the Women who Get Shit Done Team in Christchurch and at the event met an amazing lady (who completely gets shit done) Persephone. And...

Twitter and why New Zealand businesses need to get onboard

I use Twitter alot. I love it. I love those 140 characters that I get and I love it for finding out news and info straight away. A good friend of mine gave me an amazing description of what it is when I said many businesses here in New Zealand don’t use it because they don’t ‘get it’. “Google is like the dead internet (i.e. stuff that’s happened) and Twitter is like the alive one (stuff happening right now)” and I totally agree. If there’s a world event happening, a conference in Ethiopia, a concert, a new book, an...

The contradiction is what defines our work and allows us to be flexible working on any extreme.Adding the word ‘make’ creates an action that can generate balancer a chaos depending on what we want to communicate” ) you will have seen their glorious designs around the place.

A heavenly breakfast at Jack’s Point Clubhouse

A beautiful crisp Winter morning and Jacks Point Clubhouse in all it’s glory for one of the most delicious breakfasts to knock off your socks. Now it’s cold here in the mornings (I’ve recorded -7 out at my place) and so socks and big pants are needed but I would gladly throw caution to the wind and chuck off my socks if I could have this kind of good grub every day. Jack’s Point, if you haven’t been out there, is a wealth of golfing, trails for biking and walks, kids playground and the restaurant. You are right up...
