Name Spelt Stupidly?!

Do any of you ALWAYS get your name spelt wrong when you go places? Surprisingly, I do and my name is three letters long! Z-O-E.
I thought that I would quickly throw some photos together on here, for your own amusement to how people can get my name so wrong! Haha!
I really don’t mind when they get it wrong, I find it quite funny what they come up with although it does make me question my accent.
Am I saying my Z’s as an S? Soe?
People that know me or hear me on vlogs, LET ME KNOW!

Oh, Wellington.. This place reminds me of being back home, it has a dock, a city, it can be nice and peaceful walking around but also has some civilisation which I like having the option! (As I found that Queenstown was so nice, but it was always busy with backpackers everywhere!).
I was initially going to stay in Wellington for another 2 months to get a job, but then I thought that it was a bit pointless by the time I actually GET a job. I wouldn’t end up earning much, so I have left back to Auckland, ready to move onto Fiji and LA.
Anyway, back onto Wellington..
I spent most of my time here in Starbucks, chilling out, looking for jobs and trying not to spend any more money! But they have a great range of free things to do, like the Te Papa Museum which is so incredible – especially the Gallipoli Exhibition by Weta Workshop! The exhibition was mindblowingly, great!

Not to forget the fact that Wellington has it’s own Welsh Bar, I know, that’s right.. A Welsh Bar.
I have never seen one (apart from in Wales, of course..) but never in a different country, it’s always Irish. So I was pretty amazed, there also seemed to be a lot of Welsh people living around that area, as I would see a lot of Welsh flags outside houses..

Wellington also is the home of the All Blacks, at the Westpac Stadium! This is where I went to Comic-Con which was really cheap compared to others, but also not too big, not too small! Great fun for a day out!

Travel Log 03.04.15 – 30.04.15

Sunday 5th April
I just lounged by the pool today and listened to my ipod. Nothing much!
I then went to Soda Factory to see Atif, Steph and Sophie from H&M.

Saturday 11th April
Tonight we went to The Standard Bowl which is this really cool club, that has a bowling alley in it with lots of brick walls! It was a good night and we even had a 3am tiger pie from Harrys Cafe De Wheels! YUM!

Tuesday 14th April
Today was Ben & Jerrys Free Cone Day! It’s one day, once a year and they give out free ice cream, so we went three times and I felt so sick for the rest of the day.

Wednesday 15th April
I had my job interview for Cotton On today. It was an interview with lots of questions, but I think I did well hopefully!

Friday 17th April
I got the job at Cotton On! Woo! I also had an interview to be a Kindle Brand Ambassador today, too and got the job!
I also saw one of the biggest spiders ever, earlier. Woah.

Monday 20th April
We went to a rugby league match tonight at the Remondis Stadium. It was a lot of fun, but it was absolutely pouring down! Still, we had fun and I wrapped up in a lot of layers so I was lovely and comfortable!


Tuesday 21st April
We went to Soda Factory tonight for $1 Hot Dogs which was so good! I had the Elvis Presley which is a dessert hot dog, with deep fried banana, peanut butter and jam! YUM!

We also saw a huge pile of broken umbrellas, which was a strange sight for Sydney!

Wednesday 22nd April
I went to the World’s Biggest Imax and saw The Avengers! Eee! I even got to see the Star Wars trailer on the big screen, and Jurassic World!

Thursday 23rd April
Today I just chilled in Starbucks and edited my old footage into one film. I had to get out of the hostel as I was really stressed! I have hardly any money anymore and have been stressed for the last month – but I’m thinking of travelling Australia soon and just leaving sooner!

Sunday 26th April
I finally went to Palm Beach today! I went with Pinar and we walked up and down the beach taking lots of photos – so I will try to upload a video soon of it!

Wednesday 29th April
I am at the Medical Centre today. I have had to use ear plugs a lot recently as the hostel is really noisy when I’m trying to sleep. So, when I woke up this morning, I couldn’t hear a thing so I went to the doctors and he said (what I could make out).. that I have a big infection in my left ear and a smaller one in the right ear. So I have antibiotic drops for now and then I’ll have to go back on Monday to have them syringed – EEK!

Thursday 30th April
We went to Madame Tussauds and Sealife today! Me, Pinar, Michael and Madeline. It was a really nice day out and we took loads of photos, which I will post in the next few days.
When we got home though, I had a massive migraine and didn’t feel too good, so I stayed in bed for most of the evening but I did start reading my new book! I’m on a reading streak at the moment – woo!

Starbucks Banana Yoghurt Frappucino

I got excited when I heard that Starbucks were bringing out a banana Frappucino! When I heard that it was going to be yoghurt based, I sort of expected it to be frozen yoghurt aswell.

Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought! It’s natural yoghurt and has a slight sour taste to it, but it’s still drinkable, if you know what you’re ordering!

I’d still try it again though, and the Berry flavour too! But the Mocha Coconut Frappucino is still winning my heart!

Have you tried this yet? What’s your favourite drink to get in Starbucks? Hot/cold?



NEW Starbucks Coconut Chocolate Frappucino!

I just went to Starbucks to have a chill. So I ordered a chocolate creme Frappucino, but the lovely people at my local one asked if I wanted to try the new one as I was paying with my Starbucks card!

I wasn’t disappointed! It is heaven in a cup, it tastes just like Bounty!
It will be out next week for everyone that doesn’t have a Starbucks Card – so definitely go and try it!
I’m so glad Starbucks have finally upped their game with frappucinos, as I find the vanilla, caramel and strawberry a bit boring for me!
