Winter holiday inspiration

I’m currently hunkered down in a small motel. Well, when I say motel I really mean an old plane from the 1940s which has been converted into a motel room. The cockpit has another bedroom, however it is too cold to sleep up there tonight.

Since it has been so cold, I’ve had to think carefully about the sorts of clothes to wear. I’m not in Auckland anymore.

I haven’t had to wear this many layers since living in the UK. Crazy.

My favourite winter item is jumpers. I love jumpers. They are cozy and warm and suit so many different outfits.

I didn’t have much to do tonight once arriving at the motel, so I spent my time creating  new outfits.

Tips for Shopping on a Budget.

Budgets. Aren’t they annoying? Those pesky little things you have to keep an eye on when you shop? Budget shopping is annoying, especially when you see something you really, really love. So, to help me when I have to shop on a budget, I just follow some of these steps.

Every end is a new beginning

So, I got a new job!  I’m so excited.  I’m still going to be teaching, and my new job doesn’t start until January next year, but I can’t wait!

Of course I am going to miss all my colleagues at my current school, but I need a change and I think that moving to a new school is going to provide more opportunities for me to further my career.  It is in a lower socio-economic area and I hope that this will mean more focus on helping the kids and providing a good education for them, rather than having a big focus on paperwork and national standards.

Another reason why I want a change is because my current school doesn’t feel like it’s for me.  Like I said, I have lovely friends at school and I will miss them so much, especially my Teacher Aide.  But, my new school has only 10 teachers, instead of 21!


On another note:

I met a teaching friend this evening after work.  It was so nice to have a gossip and chat about anything and everything.

I wasn’t sure about my outfit today.  I don’t think the pants fit quite right anymore, since I have (for some weird reason) lost weight (not that I need to, I think it is from stress).


Not a very good quality photo, sorry.

Pants: Asos

Top: H&M

Cardi: Glassons

Shoes: VIntage

Here ya go.  I hope to have a style story up tomorrow.

Cheers xD
