New Zealand might be green and blossoming all year round, but there’s that unique magic in Spring, when you can literally feel the nature waking up. And fragile, very feminine and delicate beauty of the blossoming cherry trees is definitely a highlight of the season.
You know I’m the biggest beautyholic out there – I enjoy discovering new brands, top-notch products and extremely unusual, but highly effective ingredients. Sometimes I find something so cool, I really want to share it with you, but honestly, writing a traditional ‘beauty review’ feels a bit boring, don’t you think so? So, that’s how I ended up sitting in front of my laptop and three gorgeous little bottles of Tailor ‘Glow Pots’ recently. ‘What should I do with you, guys?’ I asked… And here it was! A funny solution that I personally absolutely love – if I can talk to beauty products in real life, why don’t I talk to them on blog? As if it was a real interview, only with a lipstick, perfume or face serum instead of a person. I can use my concerns and worries as questions and my honest opinion after using them as their answers. Seriously, so much fun!
Rachelle Duffy (founder of The Little Big Events) is one of those people doing incredible things for our community and our region. Weekend markets, annual festivals and even monthly magazine is what brings Tauranga to life. I first had a pleasure to talk to her about a year ago, while interviewing Rachelle for focus magazine. Though she just gave Birth to her second baby and was certainly extremely busy being a mum of a newborn, she found time for a long and very interesting phone talk. A year later, and we finally meet in person at the opening day of Our Place, new container village in Tauranga CBD, bringing old market favs and some new brands to the Downtown.
