Spent four days relaxing in amazing scenic Auckland, New Zealand. With grass so green, I'm surprised a shade of green is not named after it - yet!

Although the food was a let-down, the exceptional customer service and hospitality were phenomenal.

New Zealand's home-grown fashion designers are also great with the likes of Karen Walker and Stolen Girlfriend's Club already shining on the world's stage. I also discovered an amazing NZ label, Ruby Boutique specialising in sophisticated and girly chic clothing - bought myself an algae green cape, down $xxx but absolutely LOVE it!!
Wish I had more than just 3 hours to shop, but alas still managed to score myself a few key fashion pieces - can't wait to wear them, hopefully, if they don't get lost amongst the existing clothes in my clustered wardrobe(s)!

Also, if you're planning to head down there soon, I'd highly recommend Stamford Hotel Auckland! Its prime location coupled with the exceptional service from staff is commendable. Stamford also offers 3 great restaurants, one of which is a popular Thai restaurant, Grasshopper, which I had the pleasure of dining at on my first night!
