Shop Idea – Yellow Daisy


Hey guys,

I recently just came up with a business venture idea. It’s kind of a home / office decor type situation. I have recently made an Instagram for the idea, just trying to get traffic at the moment, to see if there is any interest out there. Here is the link: https://www.instagram.com/shop_yellowdaisy/ If you want to check it out and give it a follow I would be very grateful.

The main goal at the moment like I said is to get some interest going.  If there does end up being some interest, I will then order items, sort out budgets, how I will go about selling those items etc.

The main push for me wanting to create a small online business was actually the show Girl Boss on Netflix, that I may or may not have binge watched yesterday haha. It sparked my interest and solidified the idea in my head that I don’t want to be working for someone, I want to be my own boss. I don’t care if it involves more work than a 9-5 because I guarantee that I would enjoy it a lot more.

Thanks for listening. :)

Eager to learn


Hey everyone!

So it is currently 12.13am in New Zealand and I should be sleeping but… I can’t stop thinking about the future and what job I want to land once finishing University at the end of next year. In plain, simple terms, I want to go into the field of marketing, mainly social media marketing.

I have been researching all day today about it, I also found some eBooks such as ‘social media marketing for dummies’ which I am yet to start reading. I need to start looking more seriously into building a platform for my self, before I come to the end of my studies. I think that it would be beneficial to have all this extra knowledge when stepping into my career further down the track. This blog of mine is probably the closest I have to extra social media skills outside of the theoretical stuff University is teaching me and my personal Facebook, Instagram etc.

I will be taking a social media paper next year but I’m to eager and keen to learn and can’t handle waiting! If any of you who read this blog have any advice on breaking into the social media marketing side of things, or are in that kind of job yourself any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Urge to Write


Do you ever get that feeling of just wanting to write as much as you can, that urge to write? To put every thought, every emotion, into a paragraph? That is currently me right now. In High School I used to love to constantly write. 99.99% about love. During English I once wrote an awesome story that the teacher loved. I also wrote a poem that was influenced listening to Lorde’s song Royals, weird huh?

Thinking back, I wish I had kept a backed up version of my poems as I know there was over 20 of them. My last post was of one that I miraculously emailed to my self, smart move by me. This was probably because it was one of my last poems I did write, and you guessed it, it was about heartbreak.

I really want to get back in to writing poems, seeing as i am on University break and all. That feeling you get when the words just keep flowing and when you finally finish your poem, is unexplainable. You’ve created a masterpiece from within. I think to make this happen I should try write 1 poem every couple of months or so. I know that putting a time frame on writing, poems especially, is a hard task. Mostly because I write from experiences and what happens to me. Nothing can be rushed, feelings and emotions just can’t  be made up on the spot, they need to come to me effortlessly.

Wish me luck, yours truly, colour me clueless xx

School’s out!


Hey everyone.

So it really has been a while since I have posted on here, hey? Well, as you can guess from the photo University is on break until the end of February which means it is time for a well deserved break. I was actually enrolled for summer school again this year but decided that, on a last minute whim, that I would give it a miss. The main reason for this was that I noticed a common factor in regards to my migraines was where I was living for the past 2 years during study. I would go away for a couple of weeks at a time and the migraines would not happen and then the first day back at the flat, wham! migraine. Besides this I think I really just needed a break from study as it is intense.

University break also means that summer is just over 1 month away, I am so excited! Well, I have a love hate relationship with summer. The warmth and tans are nice but I hate over heating so I will definatley need to get used to it as the heat is already starting to get to me mid November. Hello fan!

I am also very excited to pick my camera up again, it has been a long time coming. I am visiting the farm for just over 1 month, and the farm makes for very awesome photos, I have already taken a few and it has only been just over a day! Make sure to check out my photography Instagram because I will be posting any photos that I feel are awesome on there :) Taking photos and seeing the final result just makes me so happy and at peace.

Also, even though summer is meant to equal relaxation, that is not quite the case with me. I am stressing out about moving my things out of where I was currently staying (I have a lot of things) because I literally have no where to put them. I think the most logical thing is to put them into storage but that will cost, on top of the rent I am already paying. Ahh why do things like this need to be stressful?? It should all work out in the end, which is the main thing, just got to keep on smiling!

Anyway, time to go, sleep is on the schedule as it is quite late. Hope everyone is well and that you enjoyed this little catch up piece, I enjoyed writing it :)

Kiwi Youtuber Appreciation


Hey everyone!

Sorry it has been a super long time since I last posted something in depth. University has been crazy, especially lately with exams coming up.

Recently I have been feeling not so great with my health, buying all the ‘bad’ food while shopping and getting pizza a little too often. This has done bad things to my body which I need to sort out haha.

Last year I came across a youtuber that specialised in health and fitness. What was even better was that she was New Zealand based, something that is rare here. What was even cooler than that is that she actually went to the same university as I am currently attending and I saw her around a couple times, so cool! (too shy to say anything though).

This youtuber that I talk about is Anjuli Mack. She is very laid back and so are her videos. I love her channel as she has a variety of content such as travel, health, fitness, food etc. She is very informative and it feels as if she is your friend. I think that each one of you should check her out and subscribe to her because she deserves much more subscribers than she currently has. I’m especially talking about the current Kiwi’s who read my blog, go subscribe now! :P

In all seriousness she is an awesome health and fitness youtuber who covers a lot of bases. Go find out for yourselves, here is her youtube link:
