I'm back... and overwhelmed.

Hello, sorry I have been gone for so long.  I just got back from my island trip and a short hiking vacation with my boyfriend last week.

Seems that the world has been flipped on it's head since I've been gone.  Oil spills, worldwide anti-corporate greed protests, islands going without water because of climate change... Needless to say, I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed trying to keep up with the world.  Especially since the oil that is spilling into the Bay of Plenty is washing up on the shores of one of my study sites, Moutohora Island.  This pristine island is a sacred Maori pa site where hangi stones are collected, also its one of the largest colonies of Grey-faced Petrels in New Zealand.  My heart is aching.

Anyways, once I regroup, I will post some picture from my travels and get back to fashion blogging!
