Things I'm Loving!

After nearly a 4 week absence (!), I'm back!

My blog address
I have only just realised that when I access my blog directly, it ends with! Ahhhh! It kinda makes me feel like a bit of a traitor!

In the next few weeks I will be booking my tickets for a months holiday back in New Zealand! It would've been nearly 2.5 years since I was back home by the time I go! I feel pretty excited about it; my bank account on the other hand isn't too happy about the £1200+ transaction that's going to happen!

The beach
I'm in dire need of getting away, particularly to a beach with sun. I don't know if it's because I've just had my first lot of school holidays in nearly 2 years where I haven't gone away or if it's the first-week-back-at-work-blues, but I'm totes craving some sun, sea and sand!

Kapas Island, Malaysia. I spent a lovely 2 weeks here in August 2012.
I've finally upgraded from my tiny wee HP netbook after two and a bit years with it. It's such a treat to be using a proper for real life laptop! The screen is sooooo much bigger! There's a number keypad, and all the keys are UK formatted, so there's no random pressing of keys to find the pound symbol or  the hash key! I can liken this experience to getting to sit in the 'expensive' comfy seats at the cinemas, that as a 'youngin' were always to expensive for our pocket money allocation! I'm not sure why, but it's such a treat!

My new babe! A Lenovo G580. And it's blue too!

I've discovered a pretty choice park (Note: I nearly went a whole blog post without using the word choice.. dang!) not too far from my house. It is up one of London's only hills, and since moving from Wellington I'm a bit out of practise with the whole 'hill situation', so I was stoked with what I found!

The hipster comes out
I'm loving this choice, amazeballs score from eBay for £1!!!! It's pretty fun, pretty comfy, and pretty darn choice! Not to mention it being a H & M limited edition Tea Collection dress! BOOM!

Excuse the bed hair and no makeup! It was the holidays!

Linking in with my sweet sweet babes



  1. I moved back to NZ from London coming up 5 years. Amazing to be back. Made me realise how much I missed it, especially the beaches. Visiting via MNM's link up x

  2. Cute dress! Glad you've got a trip back to NZ coming up. I grew up in Fleet, Hampshire, but have been living in NZ for 15 years (Wellington too!). We're set to head off on a new adventure later this year - with hubbie's work taking us to Santa Barbara, California. It's going to be hard to leave NZ - but I have absolute faith we will definitely be back (plus with have 3 Kiwi born daughters - so at least one of them is bound to choose to make NZ their home one day!). Have a great weekend!

  3. I can't wait to see you when you're back and hopefully also stay when we're in England. That dress rocks!!!

  4. Love it all - that dress is definitely choice!
