So today I thought I'd make an attempt at my very first vlog, I've been meaning to do one for a while but when I saw this one from Savannah at The Joy of Living I thought I'd do one myself.
It's super cheesy but hey I do work in sales after all!
The instructions are to say these words:
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught
And answer these questions:
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you use to change the TV channel?
Let me know if you do one I would love to check it out!

Dress : Glassons // Jacket : Portmans // Tights : Glassons // Wedges : RMK
Every time I buy rayon I always wish I hadn't, the crinkles drive me mental! I couldn't resist this peachy pink dress though, I loved the colour and naturally I didn't read the tag at the time. I'm actually wearing it backwards - it has a bit of a cowl neckline that I prefer at the back.
I mentioned a little while ago that I'm off on holiday soon, my man and I are heading over to Singapore and Thailand for 2 weeks! We're stopping in Singapore for a couple of days then we're going to Chiang Mai for about a week and then Bangkok for the remaining week. I can't wait!!!
You may or may not have noticed but I've added a "Travel" tab under my header. I figured that since travel is something that I'm passionate about why not share a few shots of some of the places I been over the years. Click here if you want to have a look.

Jacket : Portmans // Top : Thrifted (Second Love) // Skirt : Valleygirl // Wedges : RMK
I'm trying to get myself into the habit of wearing skirts more rather than just leaving them in my closet to collect dust! The thing I hate about this one is that no matter how much effort I put into ironing the bloody thing it always crinkles after about 2 minutes of wear! Grrr.
So as part of that I'm supposed to share 7 things about myself and pass them on to 15 others so here I go :
7 things about me : I am a travel agent. My feet are completely difference sizes - one is a size 6.5 the other is a 9 (werid I know!) I was born in Bahrain. My man & I have been together for nearly 4 years. I don't follow the rugby despite the fact I'm a kiwi. My favourite colour is red and if I could be anyone for the day it would be Cher - she's AMAZING!
15 Blogs I Adore :
That's bound to be over 15 but hey who's counting. I could keep going there are so many others I'd love to mention but I'll save that for another time.

Dress : Trendz // Bag : Sussans // Necklace : Louisa // Wedges : RMK from Hannahs.
This week has been a loooong shitty week. I'm so pleased it's over. Booking other peoples holidays is all fine and good but I have a holiday of my own booked for about 3 weeks time and I can't wait! I need a break before I go insane!!
Anyway enough of my bitching. Where was I...
I got an email a little while ago from Saint Folie asking if I'd do a "what's in your bag" post for their blog, it's here if you're interested.
Hopefully your week has been better than mine!!
Have a great weekend.

I didn't wear this today, I wore this about a week ago but I chose not to post it because I'd worn something similar not long before.
That's right I wear my clothes more than once. If I like something I like to wear it often. Sometimes I wonder if that's frowned upon in the world of blogging.
Do you feel the pressure to constantly post something different?? To wear something different every single day?? Or do you stick to what you know & like??
I actually wore this today because it was surprisingly cold & raining. Winter isn't quite over yet.

Orange (colour) - The colour orange occurs between red and yellow in the visible spectrum at a wavelength of about 585–620 nm, and has a hue of 30° in HSV colour space. It is numerically halfway between red and yellow in a gamma-compressed RGB colour space, the expression of which is the RGB colour wheel. The complementary colour of orange is blue; however, certain shades can be considered more complimentary to green based on reactions by eye cones. Orange pigments are largely in the ochre or cadmium families, and absorb mostly blue light.
I don't really care about all that crap, I just know I like the colour.

Dress : Thrifted from Second Love // Pendant : Brought in Paris // Belt : Glassons // Bag : Susans // Wedges : RMK from Hannahs.
Brown isn't a colour that I've ever worn a lot of, I'm usually more partial to the lighter taupe tones but I really love this rich chocolate brown dress - I'm especially fond of the sleeve detail.
And yes, I am wearing my new shoes, you'll be seeing much more of these little beauties.

Hamner was amazing, relaxing in the hot pools was a great way to unwind after a busy week and it's such a nice drive up there from Christchurch, the scenery is stunning - if you're ever in NZ it's a must do.
I've been on the hunt for a coral dress for a while now and so far I haven't found anything, I'm trying to be patient but when I saw this jacket I thought it's the next best thing.
You can't really tell in the photos but my lippy is coral too - it's "Coral in Gold" from Rimmel <3
Is there a colour you can't wait to get your hands on??

Jacket : Thrifted (from Paperbag Princess in AKL) // Skirt : Glassons // Top : Cotton On // Belt : Glassons // Wedges : Cotton On
Just a quick post from me today, I'm getting behind on my blog reading so I'll have to try catch up tomorrow.
I don't usually wear skirts, I'm more of a dress girl but I like this one, it has small accordion pleats and I love the print - it reminds me of cookies & cream ice cream <3
Tomorrow my man & I both have to day off so we're going to go to the thermal hot springs in Hamner for the day to relax, I can't wait!
Have you got much planned for your days off / weekend??

Dress & Belt : Glassons // Singlet : Thrifted from Lasting Labels // Jacket : Portmans // Wedges : Cotton On
I'm infatuated with mustard, yellow & lemon at the moment. I've been hoping to find a nice jacket but so far I haven't had much luck - I found one but it's a bit on the casual side for my tastes. I saw one on another blogger that I would have killed for but it was from Primark & they won't ship here :(
What's on your wishlist for the new season?? Is there a colour that you're particularly drawn to??

Dress : Portmans (secondhand from Trademe) // Jacket : Portmans // Belt : Glassons // Wedges : Cotton On.
All this week the weather man has been threatening us with another cold front but I'm pleased to say that he lied! Today was another beautifully sunny spring day.
I brought this dress from Trade Me about 2 weeks ago and it finally arrived a couple of days ago (Trade Me is our version of Ebay) and I couldn't be happier with it. It's 100% silk and I love the navy & white stripe. I've been looking for a striped dress for what seems like forever and after a short bidding war I finally have one!
Yes I am wearing the same jacket that I was wearing in my last post, it's one of my favourites at the moment, it seems to go with just about everything I own.
Have you been on the hunt for something and finally found it?? Do you have a particular garment that you wear with everything??
