Happy Birthday Mum!

This is a photo of my Mum a few days before she turned 21.
Today she is 21 + 40.
My Mum totally rocks. But she will probably hate that I posted this photo here. But I like it. It makes me smile.
She is the bestest best friend any girl could ever wish to have and I am grateful everyday that she is mine.
Happy birthday Mama Mia!

Be A Bag

An email popped into my inbox yesterday to let me know that Be A Bag from Anya Hindmarch is back.
When I lived in London I absolutely indulged myself and got my own Be A Bag below.
You can order from here.

My very own Be A Bag with my favourite photo of me as a baby with my two sisters.

I went to Wellington last weekend to hang out with Jojo.
It is such a fabulous city. I love going there.
Here's the lowdown:

What rocked:
- Spending time with Jo. I wish we lived in the same city.
- Lots of coffee / hot chocolate stops: Olive, Astoria, Go Bang Expresso. And catching up with friends.
- Blueberry gelato. Yummy.
- Oh, and Lemon gelato too. Heaven!
- Meeting Jo's friends Lucy & Kerry.
- Going to see 27 Dresses. Have a new found love for 'Bennie & the Jets'.
- Nachos from Sweet Mother's Kitchen.
- Walking past Peter Jackson. You would never guess that he owns his own lear jet!
- Meeting Hana & Maia. The gorgeous 5 month old twin girls of Jo's friends Jane & Craig. Adorable.
- A visit to Unity Books.
- Purchasing the new E.P by The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra. Yep, that's Bret above. Favourite track: It's A Heartache. And check out the cute tee shirts! (FYI - Bret & Jemaine performed a secret gig and signing in a tiny Wellington dvd store today. Watch a clip from it here).

What sucked:
- Having to sit in the front row at the movies. A design fault surely. I was turning my head left and right like I was at a tennis match just so I could see the whole screen! Not good.
- Not bumping into Bret or Jermaine on the street. Or even Mark Wahlberg or Giovanni Ribisi who are in town as well. But that's ok. I'm not really the stalker type that I have made myself sound here.

Actually not much sucked. The weekend was pretty sweet indeed.
And my next trip to Wellington is at Easter to see Wilco! Yay. Can't wait.

Good times

How is it that a more than a week has gone by with no posting from me? And January has finished already! Crazy times.
So, now please allow me to interrupt your day to tell you that Jon Bon Jovi is a very sexy rock God indeed. Oh yes he is. In fact, I might well have paid my $125 just to look at him. (Don't worry Maria, I still love Bono).
So here he is shaking his bum bum at the concert last week. It's funny. Oh, and when he came out wearing a Crusaders rugby shirt, I think the hearts of all Cantabrians melted. Or maybe just the girls hearts...

This song was also rocking.
Well the weekend here was hot, hot, hot and silly me, I got too much sun and am now related to the lobster family. Not a good look.
Wherever you are, I hope you are well x
