Take 5 with Katherine Lowe

Kath in her favourite twenty-seven names dress.

Howdy partners!! Welcome to the first edition of a series of posts titled Take 5!
This doesn't need a lot of explaining, it's basically a fun little post consisting of 5 photos taken by the person and a little bit about why they chose them. The photos will be of 5 things: 1. Them wearing something they love, 2. Their favourite kai, 3. Their favourite place, 4. Something they can't live without and 4. Something that makes them happy.

I know last time I tried to do a series of posts it was a failure, but that was because the person I was doing them with moved to London. I tried to stop her but I couldn't! Now she's off gallivanting around Europe being cute and in love (miss you Kel!). We were meant to eat our down Dominion Rd and we got to about number 4. It was a wild ride I'll tell ya that much.

Anyway so this new series of posts is going to be far more successful because it requires almost zero effort from me. But that's not the only reason I'm doing it. It's also a way to learn a bit more about some of the people I really admire and it means I get to have some of their awesomeness on my blog. I'm real bloody excited! It's gonna be great!

First up is my BFF and distant relative Katherine Lowe (for real though we're related! I think like my aunties cousin is the husband of Kath's aunty or something). We've been like family since we met way back in 2011. Well her, James and I have been. But her and James actually are family, and technically we're all are. But anyway, since then Ben has come along and been a truly wonderful addition to the gaggle. 
It's comforting knowing that no matter how much time passes or what happens I can always come back to Katherine's lounge and she will feed me cheesy bread and we all do nose strips and lol while we sit in front of the heater. Kath's the most generous, caring, thoughtful friend and if it wasn't for her ... omg I don't even want to think about it. 
I love her soooo much!! Here are her 5 things...

1) You wearing something you love (see photo above). 

I got this twenty-seven names dress years ago. It's one of the most consistently, regularly worn things in my wardrobe. It's just so easy to chuck on and can be dressed up (sort of) or down and I basically live in it.

2) Your favorite Kai. 

This is going to sound really weird but I would have to say my favourite food is oranges. You cannot beat a great orange in the height of summer.

3) Favourite place.

Fiji. I used to go there on family trips as a kid and I still have fond memories of the holidays, the warmth and the swimming and you know, it was back when everything was simple. SIGH. I feel really sentimental about that place. 

4) Something you can't live without. 

There are a few things. It is really awful, but I go hardly anywhere without my phone. I don't want to be one of those people but I am. Another thing? Sunscreen. I'm that nagging person who is always telling you to put on sunscreen. 

5) Something that makes you happy.  

My brother, my boyfriend, my bed. Oh, and travelling.
