Thing To Look Forward To

Just a few of the things I'm looking forward to in Auckland:

one. Cosset cafe (along with other new-to-us cafes). We went here for the first time a couple of weeks ago and not only was the coffee great, menu wonderful and decor interesting, but they have a resident cat 'Gypsy' who is the cutest thing ever and super friendly.

two. The Yellow Brick Road (and other different stores full of vintage, handmade and high end products). I can't wait to explore the variety of different stores and I might just document a few different store features along the way so keep an eye out for that too!

three. Mount Eden, one of our favourite spots to overlook the city. I picture us going for lots of runs/ walks there and it might become a new regular spot for outfit photos as well.

four. La Cigale French Markets. A French-style farmers market operating on Saturday mornings and selling fresh fruit and vegetables, freshly baked goods, coffee and other non-edible treats.

five. Silo Park. Night markets and an outdoor cinema every Friday night in Auckland's industrial heritage space. We watched Amelie there with some friends a few months ago and can't wait to make this our regular Friday night event.

What are your favourite things to do in Auckland? I'd love to hear your suggestions of things I must see and do :)
