Summer Style Series :: Part #3 {travel}

Hello lovelies! Today I'm excited to introduce you to Andrea who's beautiful blog is all about luxury travel and style.  Fittingly, Andrea will be posting on the topic of travel and inspiring us with the delights of the Kiwi Summer. I haven't been to New Zealand yet, but I know the scenery is spectacular, so it is definitely on my list of places to travel to; hopefully you will be compelled to add New Zealand to your list too!

Welcome to the Kiwi summer, an utterly beach and bach based affair. Come Christmas, it feels as though the entire city of Auckland packs up and takes off for baches (better known to the rest of the world as beach houses) in the gorgeous Bay of Islands, Bay of Plenty and Coromandel Peninsula. 

My own family is lucky enough to have a three-generations-old bach at Waihi Beach, to which every summer we make a pilgrimage, packing up the car with all manner of beach going essentials - jandals and togs, sausages and tomato sauce for the obligatory Kiwi barbeque, and a plastic bag of the yellowest lemons to squeeze over fish and chips, fresh from the shop...

Thank you Andrea for taking us on this mini escape! For more travel inspiration be sure head on over to Andrea's blog.

Next week will be the 4th and final part of the Summer Style series, where Lenya will sharing her Summer Style inspiration.

Happy Tuesday my dears,
Rachel xo
