My Queenstown Life Wk 8th September

This week Spring really sprung. Can you feel Summer coming? I think the weather’s going to change and hit us with a big ‘told you so’ and get cold again. But for now, I don’t care. I’ve got my jandals/ thongs/ flip-flops on and my feet can turn blue all they want. I visited Cruickshank Furniture Design for an insightful piece due out soon, finally Fat Badger is open again and we are so pleased. My waistline, however, is grumpy. I met a gorgeous lady who is making people laugh with her Sweet Pix Photo Booth and the skies were...

SweetPix Photo Booth

You know the scene. White dress, mother-in-law in floods of tears, cake (I’m smitten already), band playing Michael Jackson on the lawn. You’ve had your fill, smooched to a dance or two and out of the corner of your eye you see it. A upright tall box standing, waiting, alone. You’re intrigued. Your curiosity gets the better of you. Wandering over there’s a few people gathered. There’s costumes, hats, moustaches on sticks, your mother is laughing more than she has in years and is pulling faces at your dad dressed as a policeman. What is this thing? Welcome to...

My Queenstown Life Wk 1st Sept

Another week gone and it’s September already. We welcomed in Spring- HELLO SPRING. I’m happy can you tell! Gay Ski Week got off to a cracking start, I ziplined all the way down from the Gondola with Ziptrek and there were bike rides a plenty. Get that scrubbing brush out people because if you’re like me, the house hasn’t been cleaned since last spring and I suspect there are going to be BBQ’s a plenty this...

Lusso and I Heart Design

I am blown away at what women are doing in this community. Squirrelled away in their homes creating, designing, business-ing. (It’s a word damn-it) And all the while keeping up with family, children, work, looking good, paying the bills and laying driveways. Which is the state of play I met the gorgeous Amie in at her home in Jack’s Point. The driveway was being layed. Actually being layed. I said I’ll come back but nothing was a problem for Amie, who took it all in her stride as we settled into her gorgeous front room, sun streaming in, clouds...
