How could I write anything else today, other than how my heart is so full of sadness?

Saturday morning began in New Zealand. We were so happy and full of joy as we celebrated my son’s 6th birthday. He woke up to a room of balloons, opened his presents and then we had our traditional birthday breakfast.

There are a number of really cool precincts around Auckland these days. One of them is City Works Depot, home to an array of eateries, retail space and creative businesses. Many of these businesses have their workspaces overlapping and open to the eyes of the world. It’s a collective of space that I haven’t seen before and when you’re there, you can’t help but soak up the creative vibes and friendly folk.

  • It's been a dark and wet Saturday in Auckland today, perfect day to get all cosy and burn my new pine and eucalyptus @jomalonelondon candle from their Christmas collection. It works beautifully coupled with the Blackberry & Bay. Did you catch yesterday's post of their Christmas campaign? It's amazing and so so glamorous! The photos from it are a must see - think 'Jo Malone meets Don Draper' and are on the blog now. Link in profile or www.styledcanvas.com #happykissmas
  • Seriously these guys are so lovely. Yesterday I exchanged an email with Tracey from @littlebirdorganics and I mentioned that a head cold arrived the night before I started their 3 day cleanse. Look what arrived this morning, a flu tonic and a  pack of their macaroons. Seriously, it's you guys that are awesome. Thank you! #littlebirdorg
