autumn road

28 Apr 2015

Yesterday, it was a public holiday in New Zealand due to ANZAC day. As something kind of relaxing and different, my family decided to go out and take photos of the lovely autumn colours appearing everywhere! I grabbed the opportunity to do an outfit post - woohoo!

We found the most gorgeous orchard that was all turning a beautiful yellow to orange, and the most amazing little spot down one of the rows. I grabbed my favourite autumn outfit and off we went!

I am wearing my absolute favourite sweat from Country Road (my perfect colour). It is great for those colder days, and so soft too. I also have on my relaxed black pants, and a graphic tee, both from Country Road.

As you might know if you follow me on instagram, I recently got a wacom tablet (which I am in love with) and I was worried about it in my bag, getting scratched or dented (or dropped). This one turned out to be only $15 once there was a discount and a $20 voucher! I could not believe it, grey felt, and from Witchery? What more could I want?! See it here.

I am also wearing this cute silver bar bracelet from ASOS, and silver hexagon earrings which you can't see from Witchery (similar here), and my leather chelsea boots from Topshop.

I hope you enjoyed seeing one of my oufits this autumn, and aren't the colours of the trees just beautiful? Also, I would love to know what your autumn essentials are!?

Lots of love, -Chloe

West End Tea Co. mini review

19 Apr 2015

So, I am not normally (ever) the one to accept products to review on this blog, because of course I want to keep it like I intended it - a realistic and relatable blog (tbh I don't really know what I am talking about). But. Okay I have this thing where whenever I go food shopping with my Mum, I always go through the isles looking for the prettiest packaging. There is some pretty neat stuff these days - some marketers really know what they are doing!

So, when West End Tea Co. asked me if they would like to try and review their tea, my first thought was all the gorgeous packaging you can get for teas. I was definitely not disappointed with these. Their teas have the cutest little bottles with loose leaf teas, and some darn gorgeous typography on them.

My second thought was: oh, I don't normally like tea. My parents are english and so of course are addicted to tea - possibly 5 or more a day, always english breakfast. So maybe I will grow into tea? I'm not sure. So, I asked for the sweetest they had, and this cutey came in the post - American Pie!

I did what the instructions said - 1 to 2 tsp per 250ml boiling water for 5 to 6 minutes. And by the way it was already smelling amazing - like a warm cinnamon scroll or an apple pie.

And it was yum! I still have to get used to tea but I did really like it and it was amazing for the cold days we have had in nz! The tea is made of 100% organic apple, vanilla bean, cinnamon and pineapple - that's it! Perfect for a vegan like me :)

And that's me with the tea ^^. I have really enjoyed having this along with a book to read on really cold days.

You can find a range of gorgeous looking and sounding teas from West End Tea Co. on their website here.

Lots of love, - Chloe
