What I Love Weekly #11

1. Beauty hauls. So my Duty Free dream haul didn't go quite to plan, with nothing I wanted being in stock. Did that set me back? Absolutely not. I ended up with completely different things to try. I'm yet to use my products but when I do, you'll be the first to know.

2. Walks in the rain. Last week I walked to Pacific Fair, a massive shopping complex on the Gold Coast. It was worth getting wet to be there, just to see new sights & explore new surroundings.

3. Ben & Jerry's Phish Food. New Zealand is really missing out not having this icecream available. Phish Food is an amazing combination of chocolate, caramel swirls & fudge fish. Divine!

4. Summer in Winter. Winter on the Gold Coast seems a foreign concept. Temperatures barely dip below 17 degrees. Cold winds are a rarity and the sun may as well be a permanent fixture. I love this climate & I'd be lying if I said I'd missed Auckland's chills. Getting off the plane last night was a shock to the system.

The Bobbi Brown counter in Myer's Beauty Department. I could've spent hours on this floor.


5. Karl Lagerfeld's cat. If you don't know what I'm talking about click here. His cat has two maids, an iPad & a Twitter account. Mind blown.

6. The beauty department in Myer. Over the week I visited here at least 4 times, if not more. It is heaven. Those pushy sales assistants aren't always hanging around either so you can try products easier. My hands have been swatches a lot & I love the extensive range of brands they have compared to home.

7. Driving down the motorway singing along to an iPod. This is all the more fun when your seat is in the boot & nobody can hear you.

8. Close encounters. On Wednesday I had the opportunity to hold & then pat+cuddle a koala whilst learning about it. I'd been wanting to do this all week & it was amazing. Koalas are so beautiful.
