We got some pretty amazing news this week and it feels like a weight has been lifted off our shoulders. For the last month, we’ve been living with the very real possibility that Tim may lose his job because of Covid-19 and the uncertainty has been pretty dang awful (to put it lightly) 🥺 It’s been a long month of not knowing what position we could be in (we were talking through all our options — aka “if everything flops we could sell everything and just go live in a van” or “looks like we’re going to have to go back to Dunedin and live at Hamish and Amy’s” 😂😂😂) but this week we found out that HE STILL HAS A JOB!!!! 😭🙌🏼😍🥳 the relief and joy is next level. We feel so freakin’ thankful but also are feeling sad for the ones within his company who got different news. It’s been bittersweet, especially for Tim 🥺💔 All this to say... to celebrate we bought a skateboard 😂 we’ve been wanting to learn to skate for as long as we can remember but have never actually done it so the other night, Tim got a bit impulsive on the old online shopping front and hit ‘purchase’ and the next day we had a skateboard 😂 we’re absolute noobs and don’t know what the heck we’re doing but learning something new together is so much fun. Our goal by the end of 2020 is to be able to skate well enough to brave going to a skate park (😅) so watch this space 😂 for now, car parks will have to do! Plz pray we don’t break any bones in the process, haha. Also, LOL @ me in the last photo 🤟🏼
Where oh where to go in NZ now that we have so much @airnz credit... 🤔😍😂 We’ve been looking at flights and have been pleasantly surprised (and low-key shook not gonna lie) at how cheap it is to get to non-main centres at the mo!? $89 to get from Nelson to Tauranga?! $79 to get from Nelson to Dunedin?! YES PLEASE 👏🏼🙌🏼
Popped up to the house today so TG could see it all painted 🤍 the white walls of our dreeeeeams
I know there are a few of you invested in our couch journey so I thought I’d give a wee update - who knew couches could bring so many people together?! 😅 Our space is pretty long and skinny and we don’t have any walls to back a couch onto (we are going to have a huge window on one side and our kitchen island on the other) which has meant that finding a couch small enough to fit in the space has proven to be quite the challenge! I thiiiink we’ve decided on what we’re going to do: one longer 3 seater (that faces out the window but not the tv 🥴🙄 hey, at least you’ll get to see the pretty view right!) and a comfy armchair that faces the TV to give us more seats for when we host people. My dreams of a massive slouchy couch have quickly been squashed but I’ve accepted that this is our fate and have moved on 😅 Now to find the perfect ones!🤞🏼
Literally so blown away by all your entries to my couples/family shoot giveaway over on @timothyandariana 😭 I wish I could do an Oprah and give free shoots to you alllllllll 💔 in saying that, I’m going to be drawing it tonight so jump on over and enter if you haven’t already! I’ll leave the link in my stories ❤️ It has got me thinking though, should I run a giveaway here on this account too? 🤔😏
Anyone else send their significant other mirror pics when they’re shopping for clothes? 😅 Poor @timothyjoseph usually gets a stream of photos for approval before I buy and gives me a yes or no ✔️❌ usually when he says no it makes me want it more 😂😂😂 @max_stylelived
Nine laps around the sun together today. 🤍 cheers to nine years of us @timothyjoseph 🕊
Little cutie 🕊
Always an absolute treat to photograph the Watson girls 🤎 just missing you @chris_watson_ - I’ll be roping you in next time 🤪
What a week. My heart has felt so heavy but spending the weekend exploring the West Coast with the best company has been an absolute treat. 🖤
Where do you go when you’re looking for some creative inspo? I’m normally a Pinterest gal but recently I’ve noticed a shift where IG is my first port of call... so much endless inspiration on here 💫
House update: things are moving so quick! 😱 we go up to the house most days and are so shocked at all the changes that get made in just 24 hours — it’s all a bit surreal because it feels like this process has been so long in the making. We’ve officially got a move in date... and it’s not that far away 🙈 We also have seemed to have developed a bit of a silent rivalry between our family and friends as to who’s gonna be the first to come stay... the battle is on 😅
Braved the L2 crowds today to take my online shopping addiction offline 😅
SALTED CARAMEL SMOOTHIE 💫 I haven’t been able to stop making this and you guys wanted my recipe, so here you go 🤤 . - 1 ripe banana - ice - 4-5 dates - a handful of cacao nibs - 250ml of soy milk (coconut or almond would also be yum I’m sure!) - a dash of vanilla essence - 2x scoops of @twoislandco salted caramel protein - salt Blend it all up for at least a minute (so the dates get chopped up really fine!) 💥 so yum 😍 and if you really wanna make it feel like a $9 cafe smoothie (lol) sprinkle some coconut thread on top to finish it off!
Don’t know if I’m ready for normal clothes again but then also am very, very ready to see our friends and family and to get out and shoot again 🙌🏼😂 Level 2! How good!
Picked up the camera yesterday and photographed @nesswatsonpottery and @coffeecache.co in action 📷 Ness sent Tim one of her khaki green/grey mugs as a wee surprise the other day and he’s been obsessed with it ever since. These mugs literally sell out in a minute (I’m not exaggerating, by 8:01pm the entire website is sold out every week) and so to have one of these bad boys in our hot lil hands makes us feel verrrryyyyy very lucky. Perks of being friends with the potter 😜 Have you managed to get your hands on one yet?!
Autumn in all its beauty. 🍂
Smiling THIS big because our kitchen issues are finally solved! After so much back and forthing this week we’ve officially signed off on new plans this morning 🙌🏼 here’s hoping this is the last time we have to make any changes, especially considering the kitchen is due to be installed in just a few weeks 🤞🏼🤨😂 Thank you so much for all your help & ideas over the last few days, it’s been amazing to chat with some of you who I may not have connected with yet and hear your build tips and tricks, successes (and some horror stories 😂) -definitely gave us the encouragement we needed to stick with our guns and push for what we wanted! ❣️ so relieved that we managed to find a solution we’re happy with, even if it wasn’t Plan A (or plan B or C 😂). Who would have thought a microwave and a tap could cause this much stress 😅
Ok guys, what are your favourite home inspo/renovation IG accounts?! Tag them below! We’re making some big decisions about our kitchen design at the mo and it’s stressing me out 😅 I’m such a visual person and making all these decisions off black and white drawings is so freakin’ hard!! I need all the inspo❣️
He loves being the subject of my photos. Just looooooves it 🤪 (he’ll thank me one day)
