An Opinionated Umbrella

Skiing, swearing umbrellas, beautiful body butter, coffee and more coffee. Here's one of those posts where I bombard you with what I'm crushing on (or already addicted to). I'm afraid this is also me saying ciao to you all for a week - note the Cardrona (New Zealand) ski slope in the background, which is where I'll be flying off to in less than 20 hours! I have no idea how I'm supposed to concentrate at school tomorrow...oh wait, isn't that me all the time?

My friend bought me some of this amazing Mor basil and grape body butter and the smell is just divine, do yourself a favour and pick up a pot. In the middle of winter, everyone should be able to let the world know what they really think about the weather - I'm definitely on the same page as this umbrella with "Shit, it's raining!"

Waking up at some ungodly hour to get to school music groups might not be your idea of fun, but it definitely seems much more attractive when you have the promise of coffee or hot chocolate awaiting you, and finally: I have been in love with this absolutely brilliant Free People jacket for a while but, as with some of my last list of wishes, it's way out of my price range...maybe one day.

That concludes my last post for 10 days, but I promise loads of fab photos will be heading in this direction. If you happen to be an expert on the best places to eat or shop in Queenstown, don't hesitate to drop me a comment!

Have an amazing week everyone xxx Emily


  1. Omg Queenstown is one of my fave places everrrr! I enjoyed a nice Thai Restaurant when I was there.... all I can remember is it was on some corner... not sure of the name, haha!! xx

    1. Someone told me to go to @thai, would that happen to be it?? I'm super excited, leaving for the airport soon aaah

  2. Hello! I was just browsing the blogosphere and randomly came across your blog - I'm so glad I did! Your blog is so lovely :-) Your photos & collages are so pretty :-) Also, that coffee looks delicious & I love the look of that body butter!

    Hope you have a fantastic time skiing in New Zealand! It's pretty crazy how you're experiencing winter in June/July, whilst we're having a full-blown summer here in England! But anyway, have a wonderful time, I'm looking forward to seeing some photos.

    Love your blog :-)
