Happy Monday!

Wow, what a busy and wonderful weekend! Kevin and I have decided to move (again! I know – long story!) so we did a bit of house hunting on Saturday, followed by a lovely afternoon coffee before spending the night with friends.

Sunday was even lovelier – I had a lovely girls afternoon where we went to the Trelise Cooper show at Fashion Weekend, then visited a few shops at Britomart and indulged in macarons from Milse (yum!)
