Hi, I'm an outgoing warm person who loves meeting new people and making their stay here memorable. I have travelled the world extensively (40 countries) and have lived abroad 13 yrs. I have taught (teacher), written books and am a Fashion designer/image consultant (yes I do consults for people who stay, leave looking amazing, knowing what suits you and save money by never buying another mistake!) I enjoy cooking, styling, love to eat healthy (organic garden), staying fit and spending time with friends and family.
A little bit about myself; After having completed my Design degree and a Masters in Education (and renovating 2 houses), I set off overseas to explore the big blue yonder. It took me to many countries, inspired me to write a few poetry books (independently published _yay!) and led me back to the beautiful shores of Snells beach, New zealand, (often called God'sZone) where my family resides. This is a great community, beautiful landscape scrawled in vivid green! Our slice of heaven hosts a wide variety of great beaches from surf to quiet beaches (Snells Beach, boasting it's very own warm summer evening tides!)
One of my favourite destinations is Thailand, it's called the Land of Smiles and my next would be France, the culture, language, food and of course the fashion. Travel soaks in my genes, it broadens us, it takes us on unforgettable journeys into the lives of others and deep within ourselves.
Remember the book "Oh The Places You Will Go" by Dr Seus? A travel bible for Global Adventurers (yes, that's you!)
As mentioned before, I currently work as a stylist, doing body image and am working on a future innovative women's clothing range.
I believe everything happens for a reason, and all things can be worked together for a greater good.
I hope that gives you some insight into who I am and Refined Boutique accomodation. If you are looking for something special, you have come to the right place!
I look forward to meeting you and helping you realize some of your dreams/special experiences in visiting Aotearoa, New zealand.
Refined; Relax, rejuvenate.
See you soon
(Happy for any enquiries via email//phone)
