About me:
Hello! My name is Amanda and I'm a blogger from Auckland, New Zealand. I'm 25 years old, working in marketing and communications and married to my best friend. My life is a happy bubble of blogging, running, reading and amazing friendships.


About Here Comes the Sun:
Here Comes the Sun is about documenting my adventures, personal style, photography and inspiration. I focus on life in New Zealand and love to photograph and share unique cafes and stores I visit, events I attend and little snippets of my life.


About us:
Jeremy and I are teenage sweethearts, best friends and were married in 2008. We love running together, cooking together and bonding over a love of the same TV shows. Jeremy takes most of the pictures for my blog and is a patient blogger-husband. We have one cat called Rocky (RIP Ziggy) and are loving life in Auckland. 

Answers to a few FAQ:

Q: What cameras do you use?
A: I use my iPhone 4 and Canon 400d, Fuji Instax 210, Fuji Instax Mini, LC-A+, Holga 135Bc

Q: What do you use to edit your photos?
A: It depends on what I'm doing but if I'm organising files I use Picasa, if I'm changing colours and levels I use Adobe Photoshop and i make my collages at picmonkey.com

Q: How old were you when you got married?
A: I was 21, so pretty young. I always say to people - we were unusual and we were just lucky that it was the right thing for us. I'm not necessarily an advocate of young marriage.

Q: How do you eat healthy/ stay in shape?
A: I run frequently (4ish times per week) and eat a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables. I also track my calories using the My Fitness Pal app on my phone.

Q: How can I get my products or my photography featured on your blog?
A: The best way to get in touch is to email me at amanda.ellen.thomas@gmail.com and let me know about your work. I welcome submissions or just a bit of friendly conversation. If you're interested in advertising in my sidebar or sending me an item to wear I will be able to provide you more information once I know what you're looking for.

Q: How did you gain readers for your blog when you were starting out?
A: Blogging is a community and I think it's really important to engage with others - whether through commenting on their blogs, talking on twitter or emailing. I networked a lot when I was started out which really helped. It's also good if you can update regularly, produce interesting content and always be looking for ways you can improve.
