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.)
