Making the most of the beautiful Canterbury weather, yesterday my brother and I went on a little day excursion to Willowbank wildlife reserve. One of my favorite parts of Willowbank is the farm yard, so it seemed appropriate to shoot some fun filled outfit photo's there! I absolutely adore Pigs, especially fat Kune Kune's, hence the multiple photo's of Pigs.
Cliff also had a go at taking my pictures, as my "photographer" is on leave. Such a good little brother! I'm sure he got his kicks out of watching all of the animals slobbering all over me, which he definitely did catch on camera!...I might, just might put them up on the facebook page!
I love this dress! Andrew's lovely mum found it for me in a little vintage clothes shop in Greytown in the Wairarapa, and couldn't resist bringing it home! I love how country chic I feel when I'm wearing it! The hat was a lucky find last week at a Cotton On outlet store, for $2.50! I seem to have such luck finding ridiculously cheep hats! My Vivienne Westwood Bowknot Jelly Wellies (what a mothful! haha) are absolutely my favourite footwear purchase this year. I had been on the hunt for so long for gumboots that I could actually pair with pretty dresses...sounds impossible right? until I found my jelly wellies! (I found these similar boots that I would love in my Christmas stocking! hehe) I do an awful lot of wandering through mud and puddles in pretty outfits, so these were just too fitting!
I really enjoy myself any time I get to be around animals! I didn't grow up on a farm like many of my other friends, so going to feed boring old farm animals excites me as if I were 3 years old again!, Which I am just fine with! Are any of you like that too?!

Curious George Turns Two

cat birthday, cat birthday cake

So today was a little out of the ordinary for George; New toys, lots of playing in the garden, extra attention from mum, and a tin of fancy feast! Today it was George's second birthday!
As dorky as this is, he's pretty special to us! When George was a kitten we fostered him, and we discovered that somehow before he came to us, his pelvis was completely broken in half...the poor wee thing was still managing to run and jump around on it?! The foster manager and vets were pretty adamant that he was going to be put down, but we said no way, we would take him on and adopt him whatever  it took or cost! It took 2 months of keeping him in a crate with as little movement as possible to heal his broken bones (seriously, try keeping a 3 month old spastic kitten in a cage!) Every minute of it broke my heart; but he was eventually okay! So celebrating George's second birthday after he was destined to be put down is pretty awesome, especially because he is such a kooky weird little dude...So happy birthday my Curious George!

I've been trying to show him out and about here in Christchurch, which has actually been great for me too, because even after living here for 4 years, I've discovered some new beautiful parts of the city I'd never explored before!
Earlier this week, we hopped on our bikes for a leisurely ride down to Mona Vale, which is a beautiful historic mansion (Unfortunately damaged by the earthquake, but being repaired) ...Best of all the mansion is surrounded by stunning gardens which make you feel miles away from the city. We spent most of our time frolicking around in the rose gardens! It reminded me of when we were kids running around being rat-bags;  me being bossy big sis,  him being stubborn little bro...Nothing much has changed!
You can tell I'm still feeling a bit ill, because of the giant oversized grandma cardi I'm wearing ($5 score from an op-shop, Yuss!) It's been keeping warm and snug while I've been recuperating! Those pictures make me laugh, because it reminds me of what grandma's probably do wear while smelling their roses!
