Christmas Nibbles Processed with VSCOcam Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas this week. Isn’t it crazy how much we gear up for one day & then it’s over in an instant? Now it’s time for New Years! New goals, plans & adventures.
I’m on holiday for a few weeks so am making the most of the absolutely amazing summer we are having. My first adventure was a kayak to Haulashore island – photos above were taken on my iPhone.
Do you have anything fun planned for this festive season?

The Cats Table

On Thursday night I attended ‘The Cats Table’ at Deville in Nelson. It’s was a very cool and edgy fashion show by Trouble & Fox, Sidecar and Kohl & Cochineal – showcasing some of their current designs.
Trouble & Fox and Sidecar are locally owned and run boutiques in Nelson. Both are full of an eclectic mix of handpicked clothing and accessories. It is so so amazing to have stores like this in Nelson – unique, quirky & fun. I absolutely loooove the interiors of these stores too. My fave feature being upside lamps hanging above the counter at Trouble & Fox! Very clever.
Kohl & Cochineal is a Nelson based label designing & creating seriously cool & classic handbags. Each piece is locally made – which I love!
I also loved the way the models were dressed to show off these fab pieces.
