Travel Thursday: Winter sunshine - Warm sunny winter days at the beach in Tauranga, New Zealand. When you're reminded how beautiful your city is.

It's winter at the moment here in Tauranga New Zealand and we've been through a massive cold snap! There was snow on the Mamaku Ranges just 100 kilometers down the road! However, Tauranga is mainly a beach town and we generally have lovely warm weather with a cool sea breeze. We decided to take an impromtu drive down to Sulfur Point and take a few snaps around the Marina there.
Shag's (cormorant to the rest of the world) don't have water repellent feathers so after diving for food have to sun their wings to dry them off.
This is the view from the top of Mauao -
That hill on the horizon.

Do you live somewhere amazing that you take for granted?

I can't wait for summer now, we're going to come back and take a dip, the water is so clear!

Shoesday Tuesday - Things you didn't know you needed - SALE edition - D&G Turban? Pink grape crochet earrings? A pink velvet mini backpack from Rebecca Minkoff? Or some divine fluffy slides

This Dolce & Gabbana Appliqued polka dot Stretch silk turban

now only $1749 (!!!?)

These earrings from Rosie Assoulin... apparently they're grapes...
BARGAIN - at only 120 pounds. Grapes are NOT what I see when I look at these.

In keeping with the vaguely-genital-looking theme - this Rebecca Minkoff Back pack.

It's so tiny - for the tiny price of only $178 US

♥ ♥ ♥ 

But the ultimate sale bargain this season....

These divine pink fluffy slides!!! Sorry, super limited sizes left :'(


SO, everyone is doing sale roundups which is awesome, but I'm not really in the market for any more stuff, don't wear half the stuff I already own. Instead I thought we could have a little fun with the slightly less practical items in the sales. *I cannot recommend any of these purchases except the slides - they're a total must have.

Click on any of the images to see and buy the products - they're not affiliate links :-)

Happy shopping everyone.
