People ask me questions. Here are my answers. 

  • What camera do you use?

I use my trusty Canon Rebel T5. I also have a GoPro Hero 4 Silver I'm still trying to learn how to use. When all else fails, I have my iPhone 6S. 

  • Where is your favourite travel destination?

I can't pick one! But if I had to...they say there's no place like home. Home is definitely New Zealand. It's where the loves of my life are from and the place that feels the most like 'me.'

  • What blogging platform do you use?

After using Blogger for years, I finally made the switch to Squarespace thanks to my amazing Web Design team, FIVE:thirty. It's super simple + easy to use. Also their help site is the best. 

  • Do you have a media kit?

I do! It's pretty sick thanks to Alexa Stress, a talented graphic design student who worked her magic to make it the most rad. If you'd like to see my media kit, just shoot me an e-mail {} + I'd love to send it your way. Be sure to check out my 'Work with Me' page if you're looking for a collaboration. 

  • What do you do with your dog while you travel?

My parents live in South Carolina with a big yard + land for Poppy to run around. They are super supportive, so they have offered to take care of Poppy whenever I am away. I hate being without the Poptart, but I know she's in safe + loving hands any time I'm gone. 

  • Who takes photos of you?

When I travel with friends {Tash, Keegan, S, Lyndsay, Touk, Lindsey} or family {mainly my mother}, they graciously take bloggy-pics of me and sometimes they snap great candids! I also have a tripod, which I use when I'm on my own. If I feel comfortable, I'll ask a kind stranger or fellow tourist! 

  • Why the name 'Silly Little Kiwi'?

I started SLK in 2011. I had a friend who used to add 'silly little' in front of every pet name for our group of friends. 'Aren't you a silly little bird?!' 'You're a silly little angel!' 'I love you silly little babes!' When I told her I was going to study abroad in New Zealand, she responded with 'Aww, T! You'll be the cutest silly little kiwi there ever was!' And that's how it happened. I started my blog and that name just stuck. My semester abroad changed the trajectory of my life completely. Enough that I left the name.
