WE WENT TO THE ZOO AND GOT ZERO PHOTOS OF THE ANIMALS

Monday, 15 January 2018


I had so much fun reminiscing childhood memories at the zoo with some of my best friends the other day. We went through the meerkat tunnels, watched them get fed, stopped to talk about how adorable the squirrel monkeys were, watched one of the giraffes take a poop and enjoyed a nice cold ice cream as we slowly melted in the summer heat.

It's funny how when you're a child a trip to the zoo is the most exciting thing you could ever be told you were going to spend your day doing. Then you reach our age and you spend a few hours at the zoo and are very quickly ready to move onto the next thing.

It was fun getting to experience something we don't really get to do anymore. Can't wait to see what we get up in the weeks to come.

MY TOP 5 FROM MY SUMMER MUSIC PLAYLIST

Friday, 12 January 2018

As I've briefly mentioned in a few of my recent posts, my friends and I went away for 5 days to lake Taupo over New Years. It was such a dreamy trip and I'm already mentally planning this years end of year shenanigans.

My friends and I love our music. There isn't a moment where we aren't listening to some good worship music or blasting some of our favourite throwbacks. I thought that seeing as my three week summer break has come to an end that I would share my top 5 songs from my summer music playlist for those of you who are still enjoying a few more weeks of freedom.

01. DON'T GIVE IT UP - SIX60


I LOVE SIX60. How good is this song thats brought to you by New Zealand's finest? It's at the very top of my playlist as one of the songs that I will never get sick of no matter how many times I hear it.

02. AIN'T IT FUN - PARAMORE


Some of my friends and their worship team performed this song at their final school assembly at the end of last year and it's been constantly replaying in my head ever since. This one is an oldie but a goodie. My friends and I have tickets to their concert that's taking place in Auckland in a couple of months and I am BEYOND excited to (hopefully) hear this live!

03. SILENCE - KHALID


You can never go wrong with a little Khalid.

04. VIBES - SIX60


Honestly, just give me anything Six60 any day of the week and I'll be happy. Hands down my favourite band.

05. MR. BRIGHTSIDE - THE KILLERS


We have yet to hear this song start and not have every single one us sing the lyrics at the top of our lungs. This is definitely a summer necessity on your playlist.

THE ANNUAL TRIP TO THE STRAWBERRY FARMS

Wednesday, 10 January 2018


Once my friends and I arrived home after our trip to Taupo that we took over New Years, you'd think we would have been sick of each other. I mean we did live together for five days. But in actual fact it seemed to be the opposite. We've seen each other pretty much everyday since.

If you've been watching the New Zealand weather reports at all you would know that we were hit with a big old storm and we were lucky enough to miss majority of the bad weather on our trip home. By Monday morning the rain, the flooding and the clouded skies were gone. Jesus pulled through and gave us back the well loved summer sun once again. To celebrate, we decided that a trip to the strawberry farm my family and I visited last year was the best option.

We picked 2.5kg of strawberries, stained our shoes as we walked through the patches, ate more strawberries in the process of picking than we ended up paying for and I managed to stain my white shirt in amongst all of the fun. I had to spend the rest of the day with a stained t-shirt. It was 100% worth it though. Getting to spend another day with these friends of mine will always outweigh ruining one of my favourite tops.



Moral of the story: NEVER wear white when your day consists of strawberry picking. That includes shoes - we may have ruined a couple of pairs of those too.


XO, Danielle
