Well hello! CRIPES it’s been a wee while, hasn’t it?! Between shifting homes (uh huh. After all that deliberating, Richard and I finally decided to move into a little house together, and thankfully, we haven’t killed eachother it’s been amazing living with him!), leaping on a plane to complete a week-long training course in Wellington and spending some much-needed family time in Auckland (I turned 26 a few weeks ago. WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?!), I can’t b-e-l-i-e-v-e that it’s October already, but it is!
Although it feels like the past month has whirled by in a brilliant blur, I can very distinctly remember this outing. After flying in from Blenheim, this was our first full day in Auckland, and following an enormous (and delicious!) meal at The Empire Tavern, Richard, my Mother, sister, cousins and I elected to venture up the famous Sky Tower. (Because really. what better way is there to take in the city’s spectacular views?!)
What I’m Wearing:
x Coral-coloured Pagani frock
x Billion year-old cardigan (okay, so it’s not quite THAT old, but we’ve all got a piece like this that we’ve been wearing for so long that we can’t even remember how we stumbled across it, haven’t we?!)
x Asos boots
You can’t spy them in the above Sky Tower pictures, but you see those gorgeous, glitter-filled turquoise stud earrings in the top right corner? I was also donning them. The lovely folk at Body Jewellery Shop kindly sent me a package full of their beautiful baubles, and can I just spend a minute telling you how much I ADORE them? Don’t be fooled by the insanely low prices (look, at £1.99, I wasn’t expecting terribly much either!); these babies are high-quality. I’m usually allergic to the materials found in cheaper jewellery (Richard swears this is just a ploy to get him to buy me expensive solid silver pieces, but it isn’t!), but I’ve been alternating between every set in this photograph and there hasn’t been an itch, rash or any discomfort to be seen! (Did I mention that they also haven’t done that turn-a-hideous-shade-of-brown/bronze-after-they’ve-come-into-contact-with-water thing yet, even when I’ve worn them in the shower? Two thumbs up.)
How are YOU? How have you been? Update me! I don’t know what’s currently happening in your world, and it feels so strange!
P.S. Whoa! Here’s ‘s a mind-bend. This is what I was in last time I was at the Sky Tower (which was over three years ago; I even still have the post from my last visit!):
