My name is Ashlee, I'm nineteen years old, and I'm currently living in Auckland, New Zealand - hello, and welcome!

What exactly is 'The Coconut Goddess'?

The Coconut Goddess is a project that was founded on Instagram as an attempt to lead a healthier lifestyle - both for myself and the planet. What originally began as a personal endeavour to live a mindful and ethical lifestyle has now morphed into a platform where I share an assortment of experiences, thoughts, and daydreams. It is here on this website that I hope to continue to curate a wide selection of vegan recipes, share a few of my domestic and international adventures, and interview other creatives who inspire me.

What do I use to take my photographs?

I have a Sony DSC-RX100 III that I originally purchased for taking inconspicuous photographs during my European travels, without running the risk of being targeted by thieves. Its compact size and amazingly high quality make it the perfect camera for both travelling and day-to-day use in the kitchen. I don't know anything about photography, but this little guy makes it look like I'm a wizard. I also have an Olympus Mju Zoom film camera that I inherited from my parents.

What do I do aside from blogging?

I am currently studying at university.
