A Southerly Excursion

I'm trying to look smoove.

Is it working?!

I wanted to show off my sweet cardigan clips I scored off Trade Me !


By the time you read this scheduled post, we should be happily ensconced in Nix' parents "batch" (as we call holiday homes in NZ, no idea why) in Ophir, Central Otago, and be quite merry!

We're having a weekend away with Nix and Si, doing as little as possible.

We've taken band stuff, on the off chance we get to do an impromptu gig at the local pub, or just to jam drunkenly.

Hopefully the weather holds, and we don't get snowed in or anything so dramatic!

Even more hopefully, we've managed some opshopping on the way!

See y'all Monday, have splendid weekends!

O, do check out the fabulous Fashion Turd !

Aside from sharing style nuggets from the depths of her lovely bowel, Holly has interrogated me on a hot subject.


It's all about meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

Needless to say, I'm flattered as all hell that

a) she's found me, and

b) She found me interesting enough to pose some interview questions to.

And, she's a super styley bit of bint.

I'm pretty sure she was going to have it up by the end of the week, so do pop over and say hello, and admire her, me and my faaaabulousness!

There's nothing quite like a trip away with friends. It looks like a long way away though. Have fun xx

You don't have to TRY, love!
Mmmm, cardigan clips. I was browsing some on Ebay, are they a good idea? I do love a cardi but they often don't quite fit (biggish knockers, you know how it is Helga!) so I'm wondering if cute clips are the way to go. I will await your review!
Have a superduper weekend with your pals, hope there is much drunken jammin' !!

Perdita said...

Oooh I like the schmoove moves and the cardie clips.

Snow-cold weekends away are superb. Went on one (to a chalet, in Newquay) with chums, it DID snow in APRIL. Luckily we had scrumpy to keep us warm. The boys still surfed though: iiidiots.

Your weekend getaway sounds like so much fun! I'd love to go on a road trip but neither Pyf or I drive! *cries* ONE DAY IT WILL HAPPEN!

I hope you have a brilliant time away and look forward to seeing some rather splendid holiday snaps when you get back! xxx

Vix said...

Hoorah for the cardi clip, it's a beauty. What is that divine necklace you're wearing, darling? I need to see more.
Have a splendid road trip, hope you video any impromptu jam sessions &share them with us, your adoring public.
Twizel? That sounds an awesome place and I'd hate to ask a taxi driver to take me to Wanaka after a few drinks.
Love you!

Krista said...

Cool road trip! Have a lovely time and thanks for the map for those of us not in Australia it gives a little perspective. And because I can't get enough of Helga I am off to the Fashion turd to get more :)

Yes it worked it worked you do look smooth!
Cute cardi clip I have yet to ever come across one. Maybe soon hopefully. Have yourself a grand little time. Hopefully you find some intriguing stuff at the Opshops.

Smashingbird said...

Off to read that interview right now! Have a fab weekend my sweet! xx

Alex said...

Ooh it's near Alexandra! If you go and take a photo by a roadsign there, I will love you forever. Well, I do anyway, but I will love you that little bit more.

I'm intrigued by these cardigan clips. Wonder if I could get away with them or whether they'd look silly on me? I don't have the vintage flair that you have.

Trees said...

YAH!! Weekends away! I need one so bad!

Love your cardy clip! I've wanted one for the longest time.

Some of my friends from the South Island call a bach a crib - weird there are even dialectic differences between the North & South Island.

Miss Peregrin said...

Have a great weekend away! And take lots of pictures if you get to play an impromptu gig! XD

Mazzy Boy said...
