Wellington is getting more like Melbourne by the minute. I’m loving the swanky new Press Hall; gourmet food eatery/laneway with rooftop bar on Willis Street.

And the bonus was, being of average height we felt tall!! The peeps there are tiny. Continue reading

The Café Queen is back in Welly (that’s me) and I was bursting at the seams to try Mexico in Dixon St, Wellington. I love the one in Britomart so I was excited to hear it was coming to Welly.
