And I'm back from my Easter weekend in Auckland!

Hello everybody! Well that was an unexpected extended break from blogging, so I apologise if you have missed me! ;)

I picked the boyfriend up from the airport on Good Friday at 3pm and by 6pm we were back at the airport to fly to Auckland for the weekend! It was great to have company again and he'd bought me some gorgeous gold bangles and a pair of hand made camel skin slippers (I will take pics and post them soon!).

We were away for 4 days and I took many a photo so I will not bombard you with them all at once!! We stayed at the Sky City Hotel. The Sky Tower is NZ's tallest building - you can sky dive off it, walk around the edge of it, or do as we did - eat in its revolving restaurant. The Sky City also has numerous restaurants, casinos and bars - a bit like a mini Vegas really!

Here are the pics of our first 24 hours in Auckland - one of my 'best days ever'! :)

His first meal after 48 hours of travelling. Love him! :)
The bf surprised me with a trip to Tiffany!! Whoop!! A belated bday present! :D
 
What's in the box?!?!
Looking pretty shiny and new in comparison to the others!
I did some great shopping - I love these little tin badges and can't wait to put them on a blazer or something!
Having a well deserved sit down

I actually wore flats!! And my feet still killed from all the walking!


I love the architecture in Auckland
 


The Viaduct Harbour
Going up in the lift for dinner at the revolving restaurant


I was brave and stood on the glass!

See-through floors = scary!

Amazing views of Auckland at night

A quick shot of what I wore to dinner!

 
This is the second time I've eaten at the restaurant. I love it there!!

Amazing views from the table!

The Sky Tower at night

So a day of sightseeing, eating, shopping, sunshine, the Sky Tower and then finishing off with cocktails and some roulette at the casino - almost worth the 10 days of being alone while the bf was in Oman! ;)

  8. your bf sounds like the sweetest bringing you gifts back and taking you to tiffanys - that i love you heart is just the cutest :-) looks like you had an amazing amazing time - i'm so jealous, it looks great there! and i love your outfit for the rooftop meal. the sign about the glass being just as safe as a normal floor made me giggle too - i would be so worried about it.

    oh and my mums fireplace was first like that at christmas a few years back, and she just loved it so much she kept it like that. she adds things and changes things still.

    sorry for the really long comment here!
