"Work is hard, distractions are plentiful and time is short" - Adam Hochschild



"Time changes everything except something within us which is always surprised by change. "



This month is September, which for those in the southern hemisphere signals the start of spring.
Although you wouldn't know it from the cold blast we've had in Auckland this week,
it is technically spring now, the prettiest sign has got to be the green tips on all the trees
and bursts of colour as daffodils bloom around the city.
September also means something else; I have been blogging for about a year now!
And my how fast that year has gone (not to mention the three years of my degree).

I made a little collage of some of the photos I've posted over that time.
I've had a fun time spending my time working on what used to be only Ellen's blog.
There's been a few changes over that time in layout and design aspects I've helped with,
and all the little strategies we've tried to make the blog better for our readers to enjoy.


If you're a regular to our blog you might notice we have a new gadget in our sidebar.
I've designed a new links map (after a lot of trying)
If you have time we have links on there to our bloglovin (if you dont already follow us),
Ellen's twitter, both of our tumblrs (Tara & Ellen),
and dahdadadah we have also made a new facebook page!
So if you think you'll find it easier you'll (hopefully) be able to see on facebook when we have a new post.

I know a lot of you have blogs of your own, and we like to read yours for inspiration 
and to spend some time surrounded by fashion.
So thank you all for taking the time to read our blog!
It's really exciting to think people (outside of our friends) actually read it and seem to enjoy it!!

So we will continue to try make nice posts you'll enjoy looking at and reading :)
