Greg Straight Print Competition

I got to know Greg Straight at a wedding some years ago. I think I may have shouted “you’re that amazing graphics dude” before necking some more bourbon and coke….but that’s another story. Greg‘s artwork and prints shout life and colour and I absolutely love how he captures New Zealand so well. Food, the day to day, beach life and communities are captured in his gorgeous drawings and design. A few years ago I took a simple picture (and then jazzed it up as I loved editing in those days) in the town of Glenorchy, a place I love for...

Locals- Jags Singh Sandawalia Queenstown

Jags Singh Sandawalia is the smiliest person I think I know. Having met him a few years ago he always has time to chat, always talks of his family and is a wonderful part of our community here in Queenstown. Who are you? What’s your story?  I have been told I am the guy with endless amount of energy! I was born and raised on the streets of Bombay.

A whole weekend dedicated to wine, wineries and the wonderful stories behind the people who literally make the...

You’re already in pain (thus looking for treatments) , so scouring the net for what you can and can’t have should not have to add to that pain. I wanted a massage and was searching when ‘ping’ my email went off and I received a message from the gods. The Body Sanctum gods to be exact. So I waddled off to see them right here in Queenstown town centre. Pregnancy massage and treatments can be either a) absolutely divine giving you a chance to settle, relax and be pampered or...

Afternoon Tea at Grosvenor House London

Afternoon High Tea is on most people’s ‘must do’s in London’ and the one at Grosvenor House Hotel is an absolute Do.Not.Miss. My absolutely favourite London (and the world) blogger Poppy Loves and I sipped, oohed and ahhhed our way through a course or four while our cameras did all the work. We were settled into their elegant Park Room for the duration and my my my what a room. We were treated to the ‘Royal Rabbits Tea‘ which is a wonderful partnership between Simon and Schuster UK and the Grosvenor House Hotel based on the fantastical children’s series ‘The...
