About

Hi!

We are Tom and Amanda, a 30 something couple navigating the road to becoming proper grown ups.

After a few years of travelling and living overseas we returned home to Auckland, New Zealand and noticed a pretty big shift in our lifestyle. Saturday nights out require much more effort,  brunch is everything and K-Mart is life.

Yes we have started on the stereotypical path to ‘settling down’ and while doing so, have noticed that often this stage in life is viewed in a negative light.

How to Adult was designed as a place to celebrate all the things that start to appeal once you hit a certain milestone. From growing your own veges to cooking Gram worthy meals at home, IKEA-ing the shit out of your house and solving the dilemma of what to watch next on Netflix –  How to Adult is your one stop shop.

If you too think there’s nothing more appealing on a Friday night than bingeing on takeaways and telly at home then this is your place. Get yourself a cuppa (or bottle of wine) and settle in for the not so bumpy but pleasantly smooth ride.
