Make the most of sun

Rotorua Weekender - - News - Shauni James Shauni

Hi ev­ery­one.

I hope you have all a good week and are en­joy­ing the longer day­light hours.

The longer hours and pretty de­cent weather have mo­ti­vated me to walk to or from work this week, and the walk in na­ture re­ally does serve as a re­minder of what a beau­ti­ful city we live in.

I’m pretty ex­cited for to­mor­row night be­cause I will be head­ing along to the Tiki A¯ hua fash­ion show be­ing held at Te Puia.

I am a big lover of fash­ion and it will be awe­some to see fash­ion fused with Ma¯ ori cul­ture.

I had the plea­sure of chat­ting to Ro­torua Girls’ High School head girl Te Ririu Wil­liams this week, who has a cou­ple of pieces show­ing at Tiki A¯ hua.

She is ex­cited to see her work on the model and the cat­walk, and I’m ex­cited to see it too!

It sounds like it is go­ing to be an awe­some night.

Are you head­ing along to this event?

This week I also went to the Ro­torua Li­brary to check out the Rain­bow Dance Party which was held as part of its school hol­i­day ac­tiv­i­ties. There were so many fam­i­lies there hav­ing a blast and the room had been dec­o­rated in ev­ery colour.

It was su­per cute see­ing the lit­tle ones dance and, de­spite how an­noy­ingly catchy the Baby Shark song is, you can’t help but smile when see all the chil­dren danc­ing and singing along. What have you been get­ting up to th­ese school hol­i­days?

I’ve never been much of a biker, let alone a moun­tain biker, but hear­ing about the new trail which had its open­ing last Sat­ur­day might just be one of the pushes I need to give bik­ing a go again.

It sounds like a stun­ning but easy enough ride, and I’m def­i­nitely con­sid­er­ing giv­ing it a crack some­time.

For more in­for­ma­tion about the new Te Ko¯ tuku­tuku trail check out the story on page 4.

There are plenty of other things go­ing on to read about so I’ll let you jump in. Don’t for­get to keep those reader’s pho­tos and thumbs ups and downs rolling in.

Take care, un­til next time.
