Ah, to be seventeen and in love!!
New Zealand's amazeballz young vocalist Lorde is spending some much deserved downtime in Auckland — with her much older photographer boyfriend (he's 24!), James Lowe!
With the whirlwind life that Lorde's been riding for the past few months, we bet it's just nice to relax near home and get some of that New Zealand sun and water time with those she's closest with!
With all the new-found fame, a mental breather is DEFINITELY in order!!
But we hope she doesn't vacay for too long! We need more Lorde in our lives!
