In the weekend Brendon and I went up to Auckland to celebrate my good friends birthday with her and her hubby. We discovered a very cute winery, went to a chocolate boutique and had a few drinks at a bar. All in all it was a wonderful day so I thought I'd share some of the photos from our winery adventure.
We did a spot of wine tasting with some srummy nibbles and then went out back to explore the vineyard. We even got to try some of the grapes. Will definitely be coming back here again. Happy birthday babe!

I've just finished making wedding invitations for my good friends James and Caramay. We based the design around these round boxes and I used a 3inch circle punch to cut out all of the circles. I printed the "invitation side" on a thick paper stock and the "photo side" on sticker sheets. I tacked on the invitation side to the ribbon lining it all up and then I peeled off the sticker side and attached it to the back of the invitation.
Each invite has 7 circles on a ribbon which can be hung on a hook or attached to a fridge. I think my poor fingers need a bit of a rest from putting them all together! I must say, I love the little teepee illustration we came up with.
In other news, I bought my first set of watercolours and I can't wait to try them this weekend! Eeee.
Hi guys, since posting this I have had quite a few inquires about this invitation. Unfortunately, due to the time consuming nature of this project – and difficulty of sourcing round boxes – this was a one-off. However, if you would like invites like this (minus the box) or any other custom invitation, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks :)

This is one of my favourite outfits at the moment. It's so nice to wear something light and flowy in the summer and this skirt by rpm is perfect for that. I love the bow tied through the eyelets at the top. I am also OBSESSED with my House of Harlow arrow ring that I purchased recently. Got to love the Aztec styled jewelery that's around at the moment.
It's a public holiday in New Zealand on Monday and I am looking forward to sleeping in!
Happy Waitangi Day for tomorrow everyone :)
