Blogmas Day 15 – A Whirlwind Trip to Auckland + Other Musings

Hey my lovelies, today’s post will be a little different to normal in that it’s only tangentially related to Christmas, but I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss Blogmas two days in a row. So here’s what I’ve been up to today and why.

For those of you who don’t know, I work for New Zealand Post as their social media specialist and part of that job involves being the social media elf for #NZSecretSanta. We’re in present dispatch week, so I flew up to Auckland to lend a helping hand in getting presents sorted and sent out. I can’t share details on the presents we’ve seen come through, but there’s some great stuff and I’m sure lots of Santas will be very happy come dispatch day.


My entry to the Lady V London Hall of Fame competition.

If you don’t follow me on social media (I’m on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram), you might’ve missed some exciting news – I won the Lady V London December Hall of Fame competition! I won a £200 gift certificate to Lady V London, which is one of my favourite brands. I buy from them on a fairly regular basis, so I’m thrilled to bits that I have a very good excuse to pick up even more of their lovely dresses. Plus their Christmas sale is now on! I can’t wait to show you the amazing dresses I picked up.

Work is wrapping up for the year and I get two weeks holiday over Christmas. I’ll be going back to Napier to see my family and to go to my brother-in-law’s wedding, so you’ll hopefully see a few posts from me while I’m up there.

Last night I saw Rogue One with Xenojay! I won’t post any spoilers, but it’s amazing. If you’re a Star Wars fan I highly recommend it. It drags a little in the middle, but the ending more than makes up for it.

That’s all from me right now, hopefully I’ll have more Christmas related content for Blogmas fairly soon.

Lots of love,
Mrs Greatnews xx
