Best Summer Vacation Yet.

After more than 2 months of being away from my blog, I'm finally back! (and yes, my shop is now open again, ready to take your Valentines Day orders!) I just had the best summer vacation yet because everything went better than I originally planned. I finally saw my friends and family after 3 long years; I can't honestly think of a better way to spend my summer.

  • Spent a night at a 5-star hotel and played Casino for the first time... and got lucky.
  • Went to the beach and stayed under the sun for the whole day. Kayaking with my cousins was the best part.
  • Went crazy shopping until the very last day.
  • Crazy nights with my friends whom I've known since 7th grade (and the other one for more than a decade now)
  • Chill nights with beers and cigarettes... oh and street food too.
  • Fancy dinners at fancy restaurants.
  • Finally eating the food that I have been craving for years since I can't get them here in NZ! 
  • "All you can eat" buffets until I can no longer breathe.
  • Family games before going to bed.
  • Horse-riding.
  • Family reunions.
  • Unexpected nights that I will never forget.

And many other things. Here are some photos from my trip!
