Oceania-6

It’s never been much of a secret that I am an absolute sailor gal at heart – I even have a sailor lady tattooed on my right thigh! Naturally, the second I spotted this voltage box which has been lovingly decorated with an ocean themed mural, I knew that I absolutely had to take photos there. Luckily for me, we visit this spot fairly often, as it is super close to the home of some good friends of ours!

I’ve always loved the idea of living in a voltage box. I saw one done up a few years ago in Christchurch, and ever since, the idea has really appealed to me. Give me a miniature, adorable house over an enormous mansion any day (although my copious possessions may have other ideas!) Actually, my pineapple clutch paired with the mural makes me feel more like I’d live in Spongebob’s house rather than anything.

The dress I’m wearing is a flamingo & palm tree print from one of my favourite companies, Larmoni. It’s already packed in my suitcase for my upcoming trip to Miami.. Sure, I know it’s a few months to wait, but you can never be too early when it comes to packing, right? ; ) Did you see the rings I’m wearing? It’s a little hard to make sense of, but it’s three stacking rings – a yacht, dolphins, and a wave. There’s no better place to photograph them, I reckon!

I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet, they sent me a…

One of my very favourite places to visit is the zoo. Wellington zoo is particularly special – as when Barnaby and I first started dating it was one of the places we would visit as often as possible (I guess this is what happens when you live in the CBD and aren’t allowed pets!)

We visited the zoo a fair while ago now, I had just completely forgotten about the photos! I got made up in one of my very favourites tops – this cat sleeved little number from Pepa Loves which got plenty of young children pointing and exclaiming. We are pretty freakin’ obsessed with meerkats in our household, so it was an especially mesmerising moment when they came right up to the glass and looked right at us. Oh, and when a woman asked me if they were possums, my answer was “they’re like Timon in the Lion King!” & I thought that was pretty neat. The very best bit, though, was when one of the meerkats starting planking – just take a look at the last photo!
