He says the darndest things…


Kieran is like the devil on my shoulder when Im leaning more towards my angelic side, he is the honesty I need when I don’t want to hear it and I swear he knows me so well he can predict the outcome of a date before I have even meet the guy. The things that come out of his mouth sometimes are just so classic, I thought I’d collate them into a post so I can re-read them when I need a laugh. Here are a few of my favs:

On my Instagram posts:

He evaluates my Instagram feed on the daily and gets offended when I post something that he hasn’t pre-approved, its so cute ….

“Your last post babe, it was kinda a non event. Your not going to get a bad reaction, but your not going to get a good reaction …. simply a non event”

“That post was track 9 on a CD. No one ever listens to track 9, its nice to have but you should only post track ones”

“Dont post that one, its too “look at me Im hot” post this one its “sorry, I cant help Im hot”

When talking men:

“I want a few, I don’t give a f#@k. I spent my 20s trying to get marred, now Im going to be a whore, but a classy one”

Before my birthday dinner:

“I need to see you beforehand, I have something you wont want to carry … don’t worry its not herpes”


“OMG did you see the end of the Kardashians? I cant wait to see Kourt and Scotts break up, I love it when Kourt breaks down, I always connect”

Says it all:


I love him … one day he will give in and marry me …

Heart From Hazel

Chunky knit blankets feature in some of the most admired Instagram lifestyle accounts, with top lifestyle bloggers slipping them into their flat lays wherever possible. But to wrap yourself in a chunky knit of New Zealand’s finest wool, is a feeling you simply cannot capture in a photo.

Heart from Hazel is home to Couch Candy. A chunky knit range hand made from NZ wool by Renee. I have been attached to mine since it arrived, beautifully packaged with a hand poured soy candle and a personal note of love. It drapes over my bed at night and I love thinking how it was likely made while Renee was snugged up on the couch with a cup of coffee, hand knitting my dreamy charcoal throw.

Her range includes cot candy (the perfect baby shower gift that would last a lifetime) to bed runners and couch throws, in both soft pastels and vibrant colourways. She shares the process beautifully on her Instagram account and for those who are inspired, she also offers a couch candy kit so you can knit your own at home.



The knit patterns on each side are different, one being a tighter knit and the other a looser plait style. I like the tighter bubbly look so use mine this way.
