We have had an exhausting few months house hunting in Auckland, with most of our weekends spent running around open homes or mulling over property inspection reports and mortgage documents. After a few emotional and unsuccessful attempts at house buying, I decided we needed a break from Auckland's property market. And what better way to … Continue reading A weekend skiing in Wanaka
We headed to Wellington last month for four days, for a belated birthday trip in my favourite little craft beer capital. This was our second time in Welly, and since we had already jam packed loads of touristy stuff into the first trip, we decided to devote most of our time to hunting out good … Continue reading My food and beer guide to Wellington
I've been double parked all summer with my La Sardina in one hand and my new ActionSampler in the other. This 35mm roll from my La Sardina spans about three months of fun times, and brings back many fond memories of long balmy days with my pups, hubs, and dear friends.

All hallows eve. That one night of the year when the spirits rise from the dead and once again walk the earth...*evil laugh*. It's a rather unspooky 31 October in Auckland. The orange fallen leaves and darkening nights are nowhere to be seen, instead replaced with warm evenings and baby lambs skipping around fields. Not that I'm … Continue reading Spring breaks
