I have serious writer's block. I don't know what to say about the last few days so all I am going to say is that they were AMAZING. We stayed in a holiday house perched on the side of a cliff overlooking Kaiteriteri. I was with my best friends. We drank wine. We ate great food. Two of my friends got married on this beautiful beach. The bride was beautiful, the service was beautiful and we all cried a little. We swam. We sunbathed and I even managed a spot of thrifting. All in all, AMAZING.

we're going on a summer holiday


12 February 2010


I'm sorry for another week long absence and please excuse me if I get behind on answering all your lovely comments. I'm away at the moment and will be back home for only two days before leaving on another little holiday. I have just been in Cromwell at the wedding of two of our best friends and next week two more of our very close friends are also getting married. Phew! Wedding season.

It has been amazing being down in the South Island and driving from Christchurch to Cromwell and back again. The north island is great but the south island is spectacular. Rather - it is home. And in the words of Dorothy there really is no place like home.

Here are a mere few snapshots of our trip, with a special appearance by Rowan, my partner in crime and this thing called life. He still stays incognito in his hat and aviators though.

Also making an appearance is the dress I posted about awhile back (it is actually a beautiful vintage cream/champagne colour but it looks white in the photos). It was the perfect dress to wear in the intense Cromwell heat. The shoes I have on were not as perfect. Freshly thrifted from the Cromwell Salvation Army the morning of the wedding, the heel caps melted on the scorching pavement as we walked to the church. Lesson learnt: test shoes prior to wearing. I can't wait to get the caps replaced though as they are so comfortable.

February 6. Waitangi Day. Bob Marley's birthday. The sun always comes out for Bob.

I spent the day at One Love, a music festival held each year in Wellington.

A day in the sun. A free ticket from a friend. I can't complain.

And Bob - you still rock.

Sun is shining, the weather is sweet
Make you want to move your dancing feet
To the rescue, here I am
Want you to know ya, where I stand


So to the rescue, to the rescue, to the rescue
Awake from your sleep and slumber
Today could be your lucky number
Sun is shining and the weather is sweet
