Friday Favourites: The One With The Photoshoot


monkey friday favourites CORRECT



This week I have felt a wee bit like royalty.

The last time I got my hair and make up done was for my 7th Form ball.  And that was over 15 years ago.  THAT IS TOO LONG.

The week started nicely.  Extremely nicely – I got a wee plug on the NZ Herald Website.   I couldn’t believe little ol’ me got interviewed for something!

Then I got the “call” …

“Yo bro you’re gonna be in a photoshoot for a magazine.  Pick out some pastel coloured clothes” …

Well that presented a dilemma but thankfully Farmers were having a sale AHAHAHA … so I found some pastel coloured tops and snapped them up.  If you follow me on Snapchat (happymumnz), you will have seen this.

To say I was nervous was an understatement.  I’d never done a photoshoot before.

I was majorly worried I would be the odd one out.  I’m just a South Auckland Mum after all.  I take idiotic photo’s of myself and drink wine out of a normal drinking glass.  I didn’t really feel I was worthy of a photoshoot …

Rhi, Kirsten and Moi “on set” LOLOL

I was joined, in the morning, by the fabulous Kirsten from High Tea with Dragons, and Rhiannon from In Rhi’s Pantry.  Both ladies hadn’t done anything like it either, so instantly I felt reassured.

And getting our make up and hair done was also not a regular, so we were all like giggly school-girls.  Taking selfies – trying to remember the moment forever.  Because for us, it was like a dream and we didn’t want to forget it.

EVERY SINGLE PERSON on set was so lovely.  Like ridiculously lovely, and it was so so awesome.  We laughed.  We talked.  We shared stories.  I used the word vagina.  It was great.

I had the time of my life.  It was so much fun!  Then it finished.  I went home.  And back to reality – sick kids!

How was your week this week???
