I think my computer is about to explode with all the AMAZING photos of the sun, lake, icecream, people having fun, cycling, working, joy that Queenstown and Central Otago are giving us at the moment. What a stunner of a Summer we’re having. Aren’t we lucky? Yes we are.


Would you just look at that! Lake Wakatipu shining

Summer is definitely here and I for one am loving it. There’s work a plenty happening but I’m always on the look out for more. Over the next couple of months I am going to be giving you MASSIVE hints about how I can help you grow your business by using me and my blog. Such an awesome way to get your product/ business/ cool thing out there and I will explain how.

This week included a podcast with one of my heroes in running. Oska Inkster-Baynes is on his way to big things in the running world. We talked about lacing up the shoes, getting out of the door and what drives him. You can listen here.

The gorgeous and talented Nat Newlands gave us some snippets of why Queenstown is so special to her and how she never feels like she’s working, when she’s at work. Welcome to my ‘Guests’ section Nat! Read about it here.
