Running Errands

I like to walk to one of our local markets to stock up on fruits and vegetables every week or so.  I usually opt to have our groceries delivered to us from Countdown – we don’t have a vehicle, so this is the best option for us.  However, I soon learned that the fruits and… Read More Running Errands

The Stroller

Several people have wondered which stroller we decided to purchase for baby boy.  So, without further ado, I give you the Baby Jogger City Mini 2011 in black! image via I’m so happy with this stroller.  It satisfies my 3 main criteria that any stroller must meet: One handed fold {So easy!  You pull up… Read More The Stroller

“A Little Ink – Poetic Art for Children” Nursery Prints

Have you heard of “A Little Ink”?  They’re another great New Zealand based design shop that I found through the wonders of the interwebs.  I love their handmade prints and adorable poems that go along with them.  Prints like “Spike the Hedgehog”, “Charlie the Cheeky Cat”, “Ghandi the Goldfish” {one of Chris’ personal favorites}, “Bianca… Read More “A Little Ink – Poetic Art for Children” Nursery Prints

On the Table

I’m quite pleased with my most recent purchase – this little table from a local charity shop: It has a few scratches and marks, but for only $69.00 {a good price in NZ},  I wasn’t going to kick up a fuss.  Besides, now my bromeliad has a new home with plenty of sunshine. This may… Read More On the Table

Envirosax Review

You may remember me writing about purchasing a set of 5 Envirosax bags.  I’d never used them before, but given that we don’t have a car and are often walking to do our own shopping, I thought it worthwhile to purchase some reusable grocery bags.  Not to mention the fact that it’s better for the… Read More Envirosax Review

Bags, New Zealand, Shopping


I subscribe to a free NZ shopping site {somewhat similar to One King’s Lane or Gilt Groupe in the US}.  Every now and again they have great deals.  I’m not an impulse buyer, and one thing I like about this group is that it’s not the typical 24 HOURS ONLY! kind of sale.  Many last… Read More Envirosax!


Retail Therapy

I am absolutely terrible about buying clothing for myself.  Terrible.  Remember that post I did about things I bought from Anthropologie?  Yeah, all but one of them got sent back.  I currently have 2 pairs of shoes that I ordered, sitting in their respective boxes, ready to go back to the Post Office. It’s not… Read More Retail Therapy


Back from Southern Indiana

I’m back from our little trip to Nashville, IN, and I’m so glad that we went. The weather was perfect – cool, sunny, hint of a breeze, and the slight smell of burning leaves in the air.  Aaaah, Fall. We stayed at a Marriott hotel about 15 minutes east of Nashville, Indiana.  We left our… Read More Back from Southern Indiana
