The Windy City!!

Ahhhh sorry I’ve been so slack. I’ve just returned from a week away in Wellington (New Zealand’s Capital) for a girls weekend and the Wearable Arts. It was so nice to get away from Uni and Hamilton for a bit. I managed to spend up large. (I shall post photos of new purchases as I wear them) and drank cocktails and ate the most amazing food.

Night one was dinner at an Indian restaurant (not very nice at all if I’m honest but washed down with Pinot Gris). This was followed by an early night thanks to the 7 hour drive to get down there.

Saturday night, dinner was at Cuba St Bistro. This is where the strawberry and cinnamon daquiris were flowing. Must say I think I have found my new fave drink. For dinner I had the 3 cheese risotto with chicken…DELISH. A few of us then carried onto some bars in Cuba St while the others creeped back to the motel.

The next night was the Wearable Arts. For those of you who haven”t heard of this, its a fashion show with a twist. Basically creators from all around the world submit their garments made from absolutely anything. the work that goes into these is just outstanding. One of my favourite past winners was a garment called “Rattle your dags” it was made by a pair of Auckland designers and shows the creativity of some people. It was made of recycled wool fadges, wool, a cycle helmet, merino horns, hemp rope and crystals.

This was followed by dinner at Shed 5 (Simon Gault’s Wellington restaurant) where there was yet more gorgeous food and wine to be had.

Safe to say I had the BEST weekend ever which was followed by a few more days with my grandparents.

Anyway back to reality and the mountain of work I have piled up.

Until next time x
