I was born and raised in the suburb of New Lynn during the 90’s. I have since moved closer central for Moustache but I am, and always will be, a Westie through & through. I have an incredible amount of love & pride for the West; being one of those embarrassing people who might occasionally throw up a west side gang sign with my hands unashamedly proclaiming “WESTSIDE IS DA BEST SIDE!”.

Lynn Mall was my local haunt. My first movie ever was watching The Lion King at the New Lynn Cinema (with the famous giant film roll) opposite Georgie Pie. That cinema has since shut & the film roll has been covered up in red paint by Redpaths Furniture (good job btw guys, such subtle. much discrete). When I was a kid, I thought it would be badass if that film roll could be turned into a GIANT COOKIE. Ha, a girl can dream, can’t she?

This Tuesday to Thursday, I’ll be coming back home. Moustache will be outside Lynn Mall right next to Brickworks from 10am-9pm all three days.

There’s something nostalgic about the fact that tomorrow I will return to my roots but this time with my Milk & Cookie Bus. It was here in fact, in this very suburb that I wrote on my bucket list that I wanted to open my own cookie shop so it feels natural to return here with the physical embodiment of that 8-year-old’s dream. You did it baby girl, you actually f*cken did it.

For the first time ever, Moustache will be in WESTSYYYYYYYYYDE.
