Thinking I was my 18 year old self I committed to Bay Dreams today... it's raining but I'm glad we are wearing these bright colourful outfits to brighten my mood!
For all the negative Nancies out there, there is nothing more to these outfits than a fun time. We get lots of laughs and feel awesome at a festival being dressed up. No I don't make Trent do this he is quirky like me and loves it! And no he doesn't just want social media fame 😂😂 he is the most down to earth person ever and couldn't give two shits about that. Take your opinions and keep them to yourselves! We do this for us, no one is making you wear hideous sunflower outfits 😜🤣😋
I don't see nothing wrong with Islanders who have broken English. It makes no difference when you hear a French man, Chinese and some Indians who still learning and trying to speak the language. We all have our own accents & native tongues. But I believe that most of the non-speak English are much more intelligent than some Islanders with well spoken English who still thinking they're all that. ✌

Dean Dunbar lost his 17-year-old son Joseph at Pike River, on what was his first and only day on the job. Dean isn't one for small talk, and gets straight to the point.
"What sort of commitment can you give, Winston?," he asks.
"I give you the commitment that I'll back you to the hilt on this matter. And if safety is what their concern is, I'm so confident of the reports I've seen and of the circumstances that I'm volunteering to be part of the first party that goes back in," replies Mr Peters.
There’s no denying the first step to cutting crime in Northland, and other regions, is to boost police numbers. Talked to locals, including kaumatua on Saturday morning in Kaikohe, about crime and problems with some youth. The thin blue line has been getting thinner by the day thanks to the National government. In August last year we revealed the truth about dwindling police numbers in Northland. For example there was only an average of 43 police on duty at 7am and again at 11pm over four consecutive weekends. Around the country there were 208 ‘ghost’ stations. Northland has 156,0000 people living over a vast region and need more police. National’s promise of 880 more police falls well short. We need more police working in our communities and not just the large towns. New Zealand First committed in September last year to add 1800 extra police as soon as they can be trained.

You know you're in a friendly neighbourhood when you knock on people's doors and get given vegetables....or maybe I just looked a bit of a mess in the heat. Either way, an awesome morning! #mtalberthood
Sadly we have 1,490 children in 17 schools waiting for our help right now.
"Most families experiencing hardship try very hard to do their best for their children but with help from KidsCan this stress can be minimised. The impact of regular healthy food in their diet, good footwear and warm dry clothing should not be underestimated. Gains in self-esteem because they are as well dressed as others and having the energy to participate fully in activities with their peers is immeasurable. Hats off to KidsCan for making a difference,” says Meeanee School Principal, Gillian Scarlett, currently waiting for KidsCan support.

I often get well meaning (and unsolicited) advice from "social media guru" types who are keen to teach me how to make myself a "brand" (bleurgh) or get more followers or likes and bleurgh. Anyway they always say the same thing... Post more selfies - no thanks. You don't need my face out there I assure you. Post pictures of your kids being beautiful in your (beautiful - tidy - perfectly decorated) house - You need to be aspirational of course. Make it look perfect. Make an effort. I remember being told delicately that the problem with my "brand" is nobody wants to be me. Mums need something to aspire to apparently (lol this seems very insulting to mums who actually just need coffee and five minutes peace and a gif of Jason Momoa emerging from water). Nice clothing (get gifted clothes). Everything matching. Hashtags for your kids names etc. Haha again, no thanks. Who needs perfection when you've got this? Here's my holidays flatlay or whatever the fuck it's called. If you want a selfie picture me with bed hair on my second cup of coffee trying to ignore the fact that later when I go to Chipmunks my son is going to look like he has a contagious skin disease because he covered his face in the only lipstick I own 😂 Have a great day, enjoy your bubbas, they're ridiculous and wonderful aren't they? On the hardest days it's hard to see that what we have is perfect, because we are surrounded by perfect. But there are so many moments when you see actually, this is my perfect. My kids being kids - delighted and happy. My not perfect perfect is just what I always wanted.

WATCH NOW: A group of 80 representing Kamehameha School of Maui, Hawaii were welcomed onto Rotorua Boys' High School today. The exchange is an educational and cultural one, exposing the students to new experiences.
😔 Lotso. One of the saddest sights I've ever sighted. We need to support these at risk toys and encourage rehabilitation, not put them in a dark corner where no kid can reach them. No wonder Lotso didn't trust anyone and forgot how to love. Look how we humans treat him! The movie was a warning! Let's lobby Disney and get toys like Lotso and that hideous cat from Alice in Wonderland out of the corners and down amongst the point of sale toys like Woody and Buzz and that mermaid chick who gave up her voice and freedom for a dude with no personality. #HugsForLotso #shameonhumans #ihateshopping
