Hey! I’m Zoe, a communications student from New Zealand.
I’m in my final year of a communications degree, majoring in Creative Industries & Journalism. I have absolutely no clue what I’m doing once I graduate but I’m pretty sure it’ll involve travelling or sewing.
When I’m not travelling or sewing, I love watching 90s & 2000s tv, baking, reading, hiking or just being outside!
Living in New Zealand, so far from everywhere, I’ve spent a lot of time on lengthy plane rides – hence the planes.
Ever since I was little, I was always interested in the world but never thought travelling extensively (aside from the overseas family holidays I was used to) was something I’d get to do. Well, that all changed when I went on a partial solo 5 week trip to Europe in the summer break between my first and second years of university. That trip changed me for the better and now I’m determined to see as much of the world as possible. It’s funny, I would see all the backpackers in the city (NZ is kinda a backpacking mecca) and wonder about them – but now that’s me!
I’ve been sewing since I was 14 so I’ve sewn a lot of seams in my time. It’s a bit of a creative outlet for me and I like that it lessens my contribution to fast fashion. Also, it gives me an excuse to wander around fabric shops fingering all the fabric, so it’s a win-win!
For me, blogging is a memento of my travels and sewing projects. I’m also a big nerd who likes coding & graphic design and blogging lets me do both.
