How I spent my holidays.


Now I am back in the hustle and bustle of Melbourne I thought I might reminisce about my New Zealand holiday. I hesitate to call it a "summer", as it was cold enough for the woolies for most of it. Tomorrow I am shopping up a storm with the girls in Fitzroy, but for now, here is how my NZ days were spent...

 Kayaking on the Motueka river


Swimming in the freezing Riwaka cystal pools.

Forever driving up and down the South Island.

Building sand furniture ( the boyfriend and my brother made the couch, I built a nifty wee side table though!)


Took pictures of myself looking like a knob, something every girl needs.


Beat off other shoppers at vintage clothing clearances.


Drank copius amounts of alcohol, and met up with old Christchurch friends. Then sucessfully pimped those friends out. Priceless. I am a truly awesome wing-woman.

I also babysat a horse. Threatend to beat the crap out of assorted siblings (then begged them to let me crash at their houses). Spent hours looking through the clothing bins at the recycling centre ( Nelson, NZ ). Did some sewing. Visited every market I could. Suffered a night of sub-zero tempertures in Hamner.

A great holiday!


  1. Sounds like so much fun! I would love to go to NZ one day, i dont think its that much more expensive than to go interstate is it?
    That vintage clothing clearance looks crazy lol


  2. Gorgeous photos! Looks like a great holiday to me. Next year, maybe we will go south. And I may have to borrow your sand furniture idea. So fab!

  3. Love the new look blog!
    You "summer" still looks a lot better than mine!
    And the dress in your outfit shot is so cute.

  4. Looks like a lovely holiday :) I find it hard to deal with blog layouts too. I like the new look though.
