Amazing photos, I've never visited Auckland, but it's a wonderful place!!I really enjoy the architectures, the "Vixen" shop and all the amazing art on the streets (including the nail polish on Moses!)!
Have a marvellous weekend!

I love your photos from your trips! You really capture the heart of the places you visit. I'm always so swept up in the new place that I forget to take pics, lol.

Tom visited auckland for a bit while he was in nz. He said it is similar to sf, the hills, the bay. It looks so beautiful and i love all the street art! Such a huge fan of street art.

I love the look of Auckland and that dress in Vixen has me in a tizzy, I love it! My brother's off to NZ in March following the cricket and I'm insanely jealous! xxx
Ps Yes, we did talk about you, you're cute, interesting and fun and would have fitted in a treat!

Great photos, love the graffiti.
I've only ever spent a very short time in Auckland, I do love K road, there are so many quirky shops there!

Is that a pansy I spy in the top of the candyfloss? I love the matching shirt and dress in 'Vixen'. I love the pink macarons and the view behind them.

I honestly cannot remember the last time I was in Auckland! I'm sure it didn't look this good!
The street art pix are sublime!

Oh what happy memories I have of Auckland. So funny that you explored K-Road a couple of days before I did! I'm so sorry it didn't work out for us to catchup. Maybe next time. I had such a wonderful day in K-Road with Paul, & I even went back a second day. I shopped up a storm. It was so exciting having so much vintage in the one area, & well priced too. We always lunch at Alleulia Cafe in St Kevins arcade. LOVE their coffee. I'm glad you had a good weekend & got some fantastic pics. Xx

Wow these pictures make me want to visit! That street art is amazing I'm loving the gal and cat and think it would make an adorable tattoo. I also love the food pix!
