I can’t even begin to describe how thrilling it was to bring The Blogcademy to my homeland, New Zealand. I was beyond excited to show Shauna and Kat where I grew up, and introduce them to some rad Kiwis! Thankfully — but not surprisingly — our NZ blogcadettes were a damn good crop. They did me proud!
Class was held at the undeniably cool Generator, down near Britomart. I left Auckland in 2006, and it’s incredible to see how much the area has changed, developed and evolved in that time. What a cool little area!
I like to think we spoiled our blogcadettes rotten with our goodie bags. They were pretty cool…
And themed, of course…
We loved these postcards from Love Ideas Ink
. A good life motto, I think!
sent us necklaces all the way from Greece. They’re so beautiful, and yes, made from concrete!
One of our blogcadettes, Bec from Clouds of Colour
, supplied art prints for every blogcadette.
Cute striped flags from Wink!
They supplied us with all the decor, including our adorable BLOG LOVE banner!
I can never say no to a photobooth. The Amazing Travelling Photobooth was stationed at the venue, ready to capture every silly moment!
Of course, the photobooth was a huge hit.
I loved it too!
My parents came along to class, and it was great to have them there. I love this picture of Mama Darling in her Crown And Glory
We loved seeing these happy faces in our front row.
More photobooth antics. Oh, if that curtain could talk!
We were thrilled to have Leonie
join us. What a sweetie!
Always… Be… Instagramming!
I was amazed
when Nadine showed up with this tote bag! Blast from the PAST!
I bet these are already adorning someone’s fridge…
What an awesome group of women!
Get a behind the scenes peek here…
Our class in Auckland was such a raging success that we’re coming back in December! Be sure to grab your ticket if you want in!
