Make the most of sun
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.
