A couple of weeks ago we were sitting on the beach in Morro de Sao Paulo, one of the most beautiful beaches I have been to.
In Brazil sitting on the beach is nothing like in NZ. If you need grilled cheese, there is someone selling it. Caiprioska? Someone will be selling that too. Açaí, pastel, sarong, […]
I am about to embark on my greatest adventure! In just over three weeks John and I head to South America. We are spending a couple of days in Santiago, a couple of days in Buenos Aires (BA), then up to Sao Paulo to hang with Johns brother for a bit. Next year off to […]
Sunday was a great day - the closing ceremony of the Olympic games meant that I could finally peel myself off the couch and explore the outside world again!
But seriously though, one good thing about taking time off during the NZ winter was that I got to watch all of the excitement of the Olympics. […]
I have spent the last three weeks touring around the South Island - it was so much fun
Started in Christchurch - staying at Purau Bay Holiday Park which John’s Mum owns…. I stayed in a cabin and it felt like I was an intrepid camper (although I did have two hotties and flannelette […]
I have left work - not to go to another job but to take some time off! John and I are planning to go on our big OE sometime this year, until then I am a kept woman

I have been converted.
Online supermarket shopping. I tried it, I love it! I am so much more disciplined when I shop online. There are not the chocolates screaming out to me that I must have them, I do not buy yet another bottle of tomato sauce because I am not sure whether we have any […]
A couple of weeks ago I took part in Webstocks “Halfbaked.com Challange.” The fun and games really started the day before, when emails started and the Webstock organisers posted the following on their blog:
“And in one of those “battles within the game” scenarios, Sarah and John Lewis are married. But as always, these relationships take […]
Last week I got my GHD’s back (hair straightener’s). I had lent them out to a friend for her wedding, so went back to my old straightener’s for a couple of weeks. Within a day of having them back, I had two comments on my hair. One of them was that my hair looked “bigger” […]
Sorry I haven’t updated my blog for such a long time! It has been a long time. Things have been crazy busy here. Work is flat out, everyone is super busy. Which is great, but it means the last thing I want to do when I get home is sit in front of […]
