Rangi Adventure

According to heaps of Kiwi’s and google, Rangitoto is a MUST-SEE place. Essentially, it is a island that is also a volcano (not active)

The views were spectacular. The hike was, well not a hike but a great way to start the morning! There’s no service, so it ‘s a wonderful getaway spot that is only a 30 min ferry ride from the main pier in Auckland city. I went on my own for this last minute quick trip, but would recommend going with others just to have company. There are also caves you can explore which has such a magical feeling to it. As you walk to the caves, you walk through a forest-like trail and you really think you’re in Lord of the Rings… but really I could be Frodo, since I am smaller than small.

Anyway, I snapped some shots to share with you all. Enjoy xx.

I believe this was my first time riding a ferry, which was quite boring actually.

These paths do not look too appealing, however, when you go up a bit of ways you run into heaps of volcanic rocks all piled up everywhere. Incredibly interesting.

From the bottom it was about an hours walk, if that. Then, you run into this sign and it shows you into the next destination.

The lighting was bad since it was changing so much with the clouds. But this view was of the city you can hardly see thru the haze.

Very interesting leaves growing out of some tree trunks.

Ok let’s talk about these caves really quick. They were pitch black, I didn’t have my flashlight on me so I couldn’t walk thru them. CREEPY creepy, cobwebs everywhere. but the fact there are caves on an island that is a volcano as well, is impressive.

Enchanted

I went on a wee stroll today to explore. During this stroll, I happen to come across that enchanted forest you always read about in fairytales. Well it could be the sister-forest… However, it was the most interesting set of trees I have ever seen. Sadly, I did not see Frodo Baggins, or any unicorns for that matter. I just saw heaps of green and trees!

HELLO EVERYONE!

It’s been awhile since I have shared some of my fashion tips, sorry about that. Sometimes it’s good to step away from the keyboard, the computer screen and to just look up. I’ve been living more in the moment while being down undaa and was on a little vacation from blogging. All is well though and I am back with some inspiration to make you all look more stylish for this upcoming season (:

When it comes to styling my outfits, I love to always add a twist to a specific look. I don’t like to be 100% “fill in the bank” style, my style is all over the place and I believe my outfits speak for themselves && for your personality too.

This look I have created is a preppy with a tad of edgy. These shorts are a staple piece and can also be worth with or without tights (versatiltiy). I decided to do not add tights because this is more of a fall darker look, hence why I added a full length jacket. However, if you want more of the preppy look by all means add those pantyhose. To give this look more edge I paired it with some open toe tie booties. If you wear closed toe shoes, it gives it an ambiance of more put together, whereas open gives it a more risky, showing the toe; catch my drift… get it?! Then to really tie this whole outfit together adding bold statement pieces are a must, preferably darker accessories (sticking to the edge theme) makes you look more dangerous than you already are. Even though this outfit may seem “busy” or there’s a lot of texture going on, that’s ok because all the main pieces are on the more simple side so it’s not an overload of disaster, it’s the perfect balance. Simplicity is your friend. 

On a side note, if you do not like wearing high waisted pants and or shorts, but do not want to show your mid-drift, add a layer of the same colour top and it creates a more of a fall la-la-la look because layers are life during chilly seasons. 

Fun fact: These shorts can be worth high waisted or low-rise. Best of both worlds.
