2023 so far

a note from our creative director alex


2023 so far has been a rollercoaster of a ride. Between the extreme weather events we have been having and the continuing recovery from Covid we have all been feeling a little overwhelmed and tetchy.  

As a family we love attending live music, which we haven't been able to do so easily over the last couple of years. So this weekend I treated myself and my oldest babe, Nikau, to tickets to Harry Styles Love on Tour Concert.

We spent the afternoon enjoying the beautiful sunshine in Auckland (I've been wear testing the new Sun Milk Drops SPF from Raaie - they're incredible btw) and eating our way around the city.

We then made our way, in our cute new Gathered wagon(!), to Mt Smart Stadium. 

11 year old boys aren't super keen to dress up but we absolutely loved seeing all the incredible outfits that people had put together. So joyous and colourful, just what everyone needs at the moment. 

Harry was great, the evening was beautiful and we had the best time hanging out, just us two.

It's moments like these that remind me of why I am so grateful for the opportunity to work for myself. I am incredibly proud of what we have built here at Gathered and we have some big plans for the future of this little business.
