Hello There, Louana

Louana is another highly creative blogger. Her blog is a treasure trove of inspiration. Pop over to if you haven't found her blog before and say hi.


My name is Louana

I live in Auckland

Five words to describe my blog: thrifty, green, yummy and crafty 

Why I decided to come: Stella from The Golden Adventures Of A Very Dark Horse twisted my arm :) Well gave me the push I needed to sign on. 

What I hope to take away: Some new friends and putting real life faces to names of bloggers I've been following for a long time. 

Biggest hurdle: probably convincing my husband that a weekend home alone with the kids will be much more fun than the weekend away I'll be having?

Do I know any other bloggers: I haven't met any of them personally, but I feel like I know some of them so well from reading their blogs for years.

Would you describe yourself as an introvert or an extrovert? Introvert for sure, I'm really quite nervous about meeting and making conversation with so many new people!

If you were to participate in a reality TV show or competition TV show – what would it be? And why? I'd love to be on survivor, crochet up some sort of shelter or demonstrate some sort of amazing "whip a meal out of nothing" kind of skills ! But I'd probably be voted off early.

Have you been to Christchurch before? (unless you live here of course!) I've never been to the Christchurch or the South Island (ok I haven't been South of Taupo either) so it will be a BIG trip for me.


  1. Hi Louana! No further than Taupo? Wow girl, get ready to have your mind blown!! ;) Looking forward to meeting you :)

    1. ok in all fairness I've been to Europe twice and Australia twice also and I nearly forgot I got married in Fiji! Just not much travelling in my own back yard! But yes mind blown for sure!

  2. wohoo so glad we can be your first south island trip! :o)

    1. yes me too Miriam! I'm really looking forward to it!

  3. Yaaaaaaay!!!! Louana!!!! I've never been further than the very tip of the South Island, so we're in this together xx

    1. you are doing better than me then! See you soon! xx

  4. Will be great to meet you Louana :)
