Face Painting Party (EHS)

I had my first face painting party under my name few weeks ago.
I was so excited and nervous at the same time!
The theme for the party was 'Fairy' so many guest were wearing really cute fairy costumes!
Fairy decorations around the house was amazing! Such a shame I forgot to take some photos X(
The weather was good so kids could play in the garden while waiting for their turns.
Most of the girls wanted small butterflyso I tried to make each butterfly different using various colours. :)

The girl on the left had her own wings on her back! adorable!

Blue and Pink flowers for this princes to match her sweater ;)

Dinosaur & Skull

Big fish & Butterfly decoration for adults!

I can't wait to visit more parties and see kids (and adults) smile when they see their painted faces!

Trip to North : Day 2

We checked out around 10am and drove ourselves up to 'Cape Reinga'.
Weather continued to change during our 5hour drive.
We stopped at 'Cooper Beach' for a stretch and some snap shots. :)

When we finally arrived at 'Cape Reinga' it rained quite heavily for a bit, but luckily cleared up while we waked down to the light house.

 LOVED the view!!

 The famous light house was smaller than I expected. (so cute!)

 Stopped by at a dairy in Te Pao because I found that this place is famous for a real big size ice cream. So had to try XD 
(I had to share my ice cream haha)
Took us 8 hours to drive back to Auckland!
Should have stopped around the mid point for a rest. But this was a last minute planned trip so didn't really think this through XP
 Everyone was pretty exhausted the next day haha)

Trip to North : Day 1

I went on a small trip to North part of New Zealand last week.
Our stop on the first day was 'Paihia'
The weather looked promising when we left Auckland but the rain came and go throughout the whole trip X(

Luckily the weather became sunny again when we arrived in Paihia :D

We Grabbed lunch at 'Winnies Takeaways'.
Fish Burger + Milkshake.
I tried their fish burger when U visited Pihia few months ago and I would say best fish burger I had in NZ so far XD
Discovered this REALLY spicy chilli at the place and I am very keen buy  bottle soon for myself ;)

After the meal, we checked in to put our things down and went to 'Haruru Fall' for a walk.

 Met with really big roosters XD

(Canoed around the fall on my last visit)

Had some pork ribs + beers for dinner in the town but was too hungry to take any photos XP
Went to bed not too late since we had to drive up to ' Cape Reinga and drive straight back to Auckland the next day. (But managed to watched few episodes of 'Elementary' before bed.)

La Premiere Experience

I went to Sylvia Park Hoyts to watch 'Maleficent'  the other day.
(was my first time watching a movie in La Premiere.)

We grabbed a big lunch at BurgerFuel before the movie and had some photo time at La Premier Lounge.

 Cute round sofas in the lounge + flower decoration

The seats were big and comfy (leg part of the sofa stretching out XD) 
But complementary popcorn and drink were really disappointing. 
Popcorn prepared ages ago so cold, soggy and plain salty. X(

I really enjoyed the movie in the comfy sofa but if I watch a movie in La Premiere sits again and feel like some pop-corns, I would rather buy them straight from the candy bar.

Cima (Cafe) - Auckland CBD

I felt like grabbing some cafe food for lunch so decided to visit 'Cima' cafe on High St.
They used to have lunch deals where you can get a main and a drink for around $17.
Sadly the deal was gone :(
But I was too hungry to move to another cafe so sat myself down on the second floor of the cafe.
(Was too cold to seat outside XP)

I ordered 'Cima's Grilled Chicken Burger'
My BF ordered 'Meatball Spaghetti'

I would say the spaghetti was pretty average.
But the burger was bigger than I expected with nicely toasted buns with generous amount of chips on the side. (Couldn't finish the chips)
Especially like how they served the chips in a small tin net container.

If I revisit and order the burger again, might ask for less dressing. (Not really a sauce lover XP)

Anyway overall was a nice filling lunch. XD
Didn't have time to take some photos of their dessert cabinet but they all looked pretty delicious. +w+

56-58 High Street,

Rosie (Cafe) - Parnell

Was a rather quiet and sunny day after the storm so decided to have brunch in a cafe.
The cafe me and my bf decided to visit was in Parnell, called 'Rosie'
Heard they have some cool lighting and indeed they did.
(Apparently the flower light cost more than a car 0A0;)
All the furniture and dishes were all nice (and pricey)  fancy design wares. 
Cabinet food looked pretty and delicious. (Forgot to take some photos though..)

Their menu was nicely covered with hand stitched fabric, giving an antique classy look.

Rosie Cafe had a wide range of juice and smoothies to choose from!
I went for a glass of 'Apple & Kale' Juice and I really liked it! (Was too green for my bf XP)

For my meal I've chosen 'Mushrooms, pancetta, poached eggs, chilli ragas'
My bf went for 'Omellette, smoked fish, soft herbs, caper salad'
plus 'hash potato'

The presentation of the foods were good.
I definitely wasn't expecting hash brown to be a square shape.
But seasoning in foods were a bit too much for me...
So I was quite glad I ordered refreshing juice instead of creamy coffee XP

If I visit Rosie again, think I will go for the cabinets sandwiches.

82 Gladstone Rd 
Auckland City

Found some pretty flowers beside the cafe building +w+
