It has been awhile since I did a 'Places' blog post, so I thought it was about time I updated this section!
As you know, I love my walks and going to new places. My friend at work, who has a place out at Huia recommended this track to me. I was so surprised at myself that I had never thought of coming out here. GUYS, it's seriously such a beautiful place!!
The whole track was SO green! I spent a while just sitting on that rock, breathing in the fresh air! Can't say it was easy to get to, let's just say it involved me crawling on my hands and knees. Worth it!
Things to know about this track:
What makes a happy marriage? Isn't that just the golden question. What truly makes a happy marriage?
Ben and I have been together for seven years and have been married for just over a year, while we don't have 'years of wisdom up our sleeves', throughout the years we have learned a lot about what contributes to a happy relationship. We are by no means perfect (we have walked some hard roads to get to where we are now), but we have learned so much along the way!
It has been a long time since my last hair care post; nine months to be exact. The truth is, nothing much had changed in terms of products I was using. Until recently, I tried out the Pureology Clean Volume Range. I have always had stick-straight hair, and while it is easy to manage, volume is something my hair seriously lacks!
What I love about this range is that it is entirely paraben and sulphate free! It is also infused with all the good stuff - Aloe Water, Sunflower oil and Brassicacae plant extract. These combined elements help the hair to retain moisture, reduce frizz and add a whole lot of body.
My hair has seriously felt so soft, luscious and volumised since using these products. It's safe to say my flat hair is thankful for this range!
When I am thinking of places to go walking, I often look for places I haven't been before or super adventurous places. On this day, I actually just felt like going somewhere fairly close by and decided on Shakespear Regional Park. I have been here about four or five times before but this time felt different. The day was crystal clear, the air was crisp, there was hardly any people around and there were little lambs everywhere! I have to say, it felt pretty magical. I love how being in nature has the ability to make you feel so refreshed.
Shakespear is located at the very end of the Whangaparaoa Peninsula and looks out on Rangitoto Island. There are eight tracks you can choose from and they are all well signposted. I would recommend doing the lookout track for the best views!
