A fantabulous windswept Wellington day!

As I mentioned yesterday, I went for a windy walk on Sunday afternoon. Saturday was VERY SUNNY here and the boyfriend and I chilled out on the balcony all afternoon. (More of this please Wellington!!) However, Sunday was back to winter...but I liked it!

We went for a walk to Red Rocks - one of the first long walks I ever did here in NZ. If you walk all of the way, there is a seal colony at the end. We didn't go that far because it was too windy, but enjoyed blowing the cobwebs out of our heads!


The sea was SOO rough!
 


And to celebrate the fact that I got another use out of my Mum's coat.....(first debuted here)

 
The bf finally got the action shot!!
And here's a close up. Just for you. Special hood 'n all!!
Last night I added a coupla more things to my Etsy shop! I am planning MY FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY and will be announcing it tomorrow! I am VERY excited, so hope you are too. 
Have a great day!

  8. There is something just so magical about walking in the wind..!! Ok, I will admit that when I feel like I"m having a good hair day, I get frustrated with the wind because it inevitably messes everything up, but aside from those instances, I really love when the wind blows really strongly! And hooray for mom's coat! I love to "borrow" (::cough:: keep ::cough::) things from my mom ;P
