Hiiiii! I’m Tash and welcome to TashTasticNZ, my little take on ‘Tash is Fantastic’. It was a joke six years ago when I created my twitter account and it stuck ever since. I think ‘TashTastic’ fits me now more than ever because every day I aim to live a fantastic life.

 I am 29 years old, live in Auckland, New Zealand and I have an amazing partner who brought his beautiful labrador, Duke into my life. I am a CrossFitter (when I’m not wanting to read or nap) and we live a plant-based lifestyle. I also LOVE to travel. A lot!!

For the last decade, I have lived the life that I thought I “had” to live. I got a degree and I got a job and strived to climb the corporate ladder. I didn’t necessarily live my life with intention or put a lot of thought on what my ‘purpose’ or ‘passion’ was or is.

Now, after years of feeling lost and detached, I’ve finally figured out my values and what’s important to me. After a lot of searching and looking within, I have figured out more about who I am and who I aspire to be.

I want to love and be loved. I want to be free. I want to continue growing, always.

Over the last three years I’ve radically changed my mindset, my daily habits and my environment to make living a fantastic life an everyday possibility and my, it is wonderful. It wasn’t easy, it was a 12 year journey of avoidance, pain, self-sabotage and finding happiness externally.

Now, my main focus is to bring intention into all aspects of my life and make decisions that align with my values, even the small ones. This small part of the interweb shares my journey and my learnings of living a more intentional and minimal life in the hope that it might inspire you to live your best life, on your terms.

Your life is yours to live and not to be lived by the expectations of others. When we know what we truly value, we can’t help but make choices that will serve that. For me, every action I take aligns with my values – Love, Freedom, and Growth.

If you’d like to take control of your life and your happiness, read through some of my blogs and if you’d like to chat 1 on 1, I’d love to hear from you.

I am in the process of writing small, easy to follow guides on building your own fantastic life, so subscribe to my email list to be the first to know! Or follow me on Twitter and Instagram!

My little family wishes you all the love and happiness in the universe and hope we connect in some way or another.
