You can’t ever truly escape the wind in Wellington. Even on the calmest of days, you only need to be within 10 metres of the water’s edge before the wind starts to pick up. It’s not called the ‘windy city’ for nothing, you know. But, that’s a small price to pay to live (or in my case visit!) in a small city, almost completely surrounded by water.

It’s a strange feeling, visiting a city that was once your home – and which for the most part, hasn’t changed – to see all those familiar faces, places, and landscapes. I’ve been enjoying eating out at some of my favourite cafes (and restaurants), and am all geared up for a short trip to Martinborough for the next couple of days; which, I’m embarrassed to admit, that I’d never before made the effort to do (except for the one time I almost made it to Toast, but that’s another story for another day).

Coupled with my friend Nina’s enthusiasm (for photography and video – a girl after my own heart!), we’ve been working on a couple of videos, the first of which you may have already viewed, and the second which is to come, that will bring the above outfit to life; there’s only so much you can capture with a photo!

As a small aside, I’m currently work on my last assignment (for my last paper!) of my postgraduate studies, and would appreciate if you could help. It’s a short survey (shouldn’t take longer than 5-10 minutes) on consumer activity in relation to online shopping, focusing on Australian consumers. It is 100% anonymous and if you are willing to participate, you can complete the survey here. Thank you in advance xx
