Espressos, Flat Whites, Lattes, Cappuccinos, Long Blacks and Cold Brew.
What dreams are made of and what the Tauranga Coffee Festival had on offer.
So we had a helping hand in the all new Audi Q5 launch at Farmer Autovillage last week, yeah, no biggie! Just mixing and mingling with one of the most prestigious cars out there...but what did I learn from it you ask? Well, that I would quite like to own one of course! But for now it’s just going to have to be my A55 Austin with all it’s rust because I sensed I wouldn't get much for it on trade in. Never mind - your time will come Chris, your time will come.
March 18 2017 was a huge day in the Bay of Plenty.
The Little Big Events team had an unusually dewy early morning start in preparation for the monthly Papamoa Little Big Markets. As the sun came up, I reached for my first coffee of the day, pressed the switch on the bouncy castle, it just felt like an awesome day.
Feast. is series of holistic health workshops run through Wild One Wholefoods in collaboration with local like minded businesses. Bi-monthly people come together to learn about methods that help to heal and preserve their own bodies- be it in mind, body, soul or the world around us. After a one of a kind, uniquely tailored workshop they feast. Each evening being designed especially for the specific collaboration; from the styling and location to the three course meal.
A couple of weeks back, both Chris and I were able to experience a wonderful "childless" night out at the first "Feast" at Wild One Wholefoods Eatery.
Whilst I LOVE all things art & design, my love for vegan food it out of this world!

Since we have launched the Vegan Vibes event, we have been overwhelmed by the positive response from out of towners as well as the locals, and its been so great to see!
Through the Vegan Vibes family we have been connected with two wonderful new stores about to open in Mount Maunganui Be.Organics and Wild One Wholefoods Eatery and we are pretty excited!
Tauranga’s Rialto Cinema has been hosting the Italian Film Festival this last week and I was lucky enough to catch Bella Vita, a truly enchanting documentary about the beauty of Italy and its unique surf culture.
I've known the Mount Brewing Co range of beers on an intimate level for a number of years now, the Blowhole Pale Ale, Mermaids Mirth and even the Manuka Hussy have always been there to talk to...or there simply to just quench my thirst after a hard day of doing nothing in the sun.
With the launch of the Vegan Vibes Festival I'm one happy little vegan. I can't express just how amazing it is to be part of a team who support the vegan community and anyone that's interested in learning more about this ever growing movement. So what does Vegan Vibes have to offer? We're thinking street food, delicious food to take home, health and beauty products, clothing and footwear, workshops and so much more!
