FAQs

Clearing some questions I got throughout the months

What camera do you use?

For most things ‘blog’ I use my Nikon D3000 with a 50mm lens but I might take a couple of photos with my phone if I don’t have my camera with me or I feel it wuld be awkward to take a photo with a massive camera (e.g having dinner)

Who takes your photos?

I do! I rarely appear in any of my photos, so that usually means Im on other side of the camera. If I do probably I asked Le boyfriend or a friend to take it or I borrowed it from a friend.

When did you move to New Zealand? and Why?

I moved to New Zealand on February 2013 after finishing uni. Le boyfriend came here 6 months prior to get things started, so I guess everything was mostly arranged when I moved.

So…what are you? (What do you do?)

Im a human…part dinosaur that feeds on sarcasm. But really now, besides blogging I’m a graphic designer and illustrator and I’m currently working as such in a studio in Auckland (got to pay ‘da bills) if you are a bit curious about what kind of work I do, feel free to check my portfolio at julesinabox.com

Why ‘The Kiwi Diaries’?

I started the blog as an excuse to ‘go out’, I was having trouble getting a job when I first started and I started writing to ‘force’ myself to get out of the house and explore the city, then it became a bit of a travel diary, documenting life in New Zealand for my friends and family to stay up to date to my whereabouts and it starting shifting into what it is now.

Since New Zealanders and mostly known as ‘Kiwis’ I though The Kiwi Diaries would be a good name to begin with.
