Hypstamatics All

Interview – Dillon from Hipstamatics

Hipstamatics are a 10-piece who turn iconic songs into soulful, funky anthems. The group formed in 2012 and their success has steadily been growing and metamorphosing them into the group they are today. But it’s not enough- they are aiming to take over the international scene with regular international tours, something they are yet to conquer. I caught up…

Too Easy Three Ingredient Sangria

Apologies about being a little absent from the blog recently. I’ve been very busy while my Josh was away. I’m contributing to papertrail.co.nz, working weekends and delving into a shared creative space I’m looking to open.

Feeling Again – Thoughts On Suicide

Someone I love tried to leave us last week. I don’t entirely get it but maybe they thought the only option for a better tomorrow was not having one. I looked at them lying down, swollen and alone in a sterile white hospital room. Trying to put my thoughts and feelings into words isn’t easy.…

Review – Nads Hair Removal

Winter and hairless is such a foreign concept to me. You’ll be lucky if every other week I have smooth anything. I was quite excited when I received this Natural Hair Removal Gel from Nads. For me, a great product has to be natural, the ingredients easy to understand and it should not be tested on animals. Remember,…
