My very first floral creation.

Early in December I attended a floral crown workshop ran by the lovely Bec from Fox & Rabbit, hosted by the lovely people at one of my favourite places in Perth, Studio Bomba. I am utterly obsessed with floral crowns (as I have ranted about before!) so it seemed necessary for me to learn how to make my own! I’ve already made a couple since the workshop (as you will have seen in my instagram post!), so it really was worth it!

Here are a few photos of my very first floral creation :)

Moeraki boulders.

On our last day in NZ, we had to make the drive from Dunedin to Christchurch airport. The drive is very familiar to my family, as we used to live in Christchurch, and drive down to visit family often on the weekends. It’s a really pretty drive, and one of the many pretty sights along the way is the moeraki boulders. They are a whole lot of giant round stones that scatter the beach – it’s pretty impressive!

My one week in NZ was such a whirlwind so I can’t wait to go back again in August, and show Glenn around Dunedin, as well as taking a trip back to Queenstown! It’s going to be amazing!

2013 on instagram.

I’m a little bit addicted to instagram. I try to post something every day, and I check it constantly. I guess as a photographer, it makes sense that my favourite form of social media is focussed upon photos.

So I thought it might be nice for me to farewell 2013 by sharing some of my instagram photos! I held back a bit on sharing too many of my cats :) If you want to see more, you can find me here (@secondhandfloral).

Rainy Dunedin.

So, from what I’ve been told, these rainy photos of Dunedin far better represent what every day life is like there, more than the sunny photos I shared here. But it’s even pretty when it’s raining!! Perhaps especially so – as there is fog overhanging the hills and it starts to look pretty magical.

These photos are from a day when my mum took my brother and I on a short tour around Dunedin – we went to St Kilda beach, my uncle’s house (who just happens to live at the top of Baldwin st, the steepest street in the world), and the university.
