Kia Ora

Kia ora is a Māori language greeting which has entered New Zealand English. It means literally "be well/healthy" and is translated as an informal "hi".

So, Hi everyone (:
Oh by the way, Maori is an official language of New Zealand. As well as English and Sign Language. We have 3.
I have lived in New Zealand my whole life, and it's very spacious, alot of room, but I am thinking of a change. THINKING. Not definitely planning to move just yet or anything. But I'm highly considering it. Every single day I think about NYC.
From NZ to NY. Funnily enough I found a photoshoot of New Zealand model Zippora Seven, who's made it big overseas. She's my age. She's actually been named New Zealand's Kate Moss. She's a similar height to Moss and same skin and hair colour, and many other features alike.
Zippora went to a school close to where I live. My cousin and one of my friends went to the same school as her , at the same time, so they knew her.
Note: In the last photo (with the Ksubi top and cap), she's wearing pants by Karen Walker. Karen Walker is a New Zealander (:
Has anyone been to NYC? Or live there? I've been doing alot of research, I'll hopefully know the city inside and out soon enough.
I am also interested in living in Italy or Sweden. Some areas of both those countries are very expensive, but some are quite cheap too, however those areas are far away from the big cities where all the fashion events and shopping is. But I do love the country, the mountains, nature, and all the amazing views that come along with it. Do you guys ever think of living elsewhere? Why? and where do you live at the mo? xx

  1. Hey sweetie thanks for stopping by!!

    I'm half British and half Greek-cypriot:) I'm living in the UK now for studies and but don't really have the accent:)

  3. New York is a wonderful city!! I love it!
    And she does look a bit like Kate Moss, at least I think so :D

  4. Hey Katie!! One of my best friends currently lives in New Zealand actually. I'd love to visit there sometimes because it's so beautiful. But I also want to live in NY and work there in fashion! Maybe we could move together! :-). I have a lot of blogger friends who are there and the only thing I'm afraid of is the weather, it's quite brutal. The other country I'd like to move is either London or Milan because the fashion scene is huge! Right now, I live in Hawaii and there's hardly anyone interested in fashion.

    I love your comment about the models; they're perfect imperfect human beings..if that makes sense :-) xoxoxoxoo

  5. Hi Katie!! Thank you for the lovely comment again! Yeah, let's move together and test our luck in the big city :-). I think that would be super adventurous, haha! xoxoxoo
