Hi all, how was your weekend? I went to a party on Saturday night and hosted our landlords for afternoon tea yesterday, but otherwise I didn't leave the house!! The weather was pants, plus I was packing and tidying for our holiday today! We picked up our friend who arrived from the Bahamas this morning and are flying to the South Island this evening for a road trip.

Flights are disrupted due to snow in the South Island (it gets a LOT colder there!) so hopefully we will get there at some point! This is my sister-in-law's garden today:

And today I finally succumbed to the flat fluffy boot club and bought these:

Which were $185 - then when the bf spoke to his sister she had paid ONE THIRD of the price for hers recently!!! BAH!

So I will try and update you on my icy road trip on the way....we are going to Hamner Springs (hot volcanic springs in an Alpine Village), Franz Josef glacier walk, Queenstown for snowboarding and various other winter destinations.

What are your plans? And yes, I have packed a hot water bottle!! ;)


  1. I am in desperate need of some uggs but just can't do it? :p
    Those do look so comfy and warm though!!
    Can't wait to see more pics of the snow!!


  2. I practically live in my Uggs in the Winter!! It's hard to imagine snow at this time of year for us!
    Have a fab trip & look forward to hearing all about it xoxo

  3. Have a great time Sadie! This weather is out of control!

  4. Hope you are having a lovely time Sadie.... you may have overpaid but I bet you'll get every penny out of your Uggs with weather like that!!
    Much love,
