Five weeks of #adventure

#adventure

It’s funny how after five weeks of travelling you can slip so quickly back into normal life. In just two weeks we’re back home, back on local time, back at work and back to life as we know it – and it’s feeling pretty good!

Every day since we’ve returned someone asks me what my absolute favourite part of our trip was – and the question stumps me every single time.

The trouble is, I have too many favourite parts; we caught up with some of our best friends scattered across the globe, saw some of the most mindboggling scenery, famous building and monuments that are older than we can begin to compare back home… it was all around pretty amazing.

Happy Monday – and a big ‘hello’ as well!

We’ve been back in the country a week now and life is beginning to slip back to normal – the kittens are home from their own holiday to the countryside, everything’s unpacked and we’re finally able to stay awake past 9pm. While we had an incredible adventure, it’s lovely to be home again. Well, other than this dreary Auckland rain – I didn’t miss that!

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful couple of weeks and enjoyed a fabulous weekend. Here are five things to help get your week off to a great start…

Today’s post is the last in a three-part series created by the ever-lovely Christine from Ruby Fearless. Christine is an expert in fashion and beauty with a penchant for beautiful homewares.
Winter is cold in New Zealand, and this year has been no exception. As I write this my little fingers are freezing, and my toes are hiding in some new slippers trying desperately to warm up.
I love decorating my home, because in winter it becomes my haven and little ‘safe zone’ for curling up and going into hibernation.
For the last couple of weeks I have shown you my favourite pieces from the marble and copper trends that have hit the homeware scene. Tonight, I have an absolute classic for you, to round off this segment nicely. GEOMETRIC!
