Disney Cinderella Inspired 21st Birthday

A few weeks ago I celebrated my birthday with a Disney inspired party. With the help of my family and friends, we transformed our garden and downstairs area to make quite a magical place! As you can probably tell from the photos, I drew a lot of inspiration from pinterest when planned the decor. I think my favourite part has to be the long dinner table! We hired candelabras, gold cutlery and these amazing carriages that my mum used to make floral centrepieces. I was too busy having such an awesome time I didn't really get many photos, but here are a couple below, plus a vlog from the day where you can see a lot more details.

Recently I went on the Tongariro Northern Circuit hike with my friend Varsha. Four days and 51km later we made it! This is the first of the Great Walks I have done and its safe to say I will be back in my hiking boots to do more.

Ellen Turns 21!

This weekend I celebrated my 21st birthday! Although my actual birthday was a few weeks ago, I had my party on Saturday night and on Sunday, Tara and I decided to have a fun photoshoot with the leftover and slightly deflated balloons. There were actually 20 balloons when the night started but we lost a few to the neighbours garden....

I'll have a vlog coming soon of the night, but in the mean time check out this video I made featuring a DIY flower wreath I used for party decor.

Snapshots from Ngunguru Tutukaka

Back in February I spent the weekend in Tutakaka for a wedding. I took a few snaps on the Sunday around the beach that I found on my hardrive the other day and wanted to share. I always feel pretty lucky to live in a city like Auckland, but have places this beautiful only a few hours away...
