Place 49 – Day 231: Auckland – Girls Pamper Day

We woke up at around 08:00 and Curtis went out to get breakfast. He drove down to McDonald’s which was very busy! There was also a lot of fog so it meant driving a little slower.

Whilst Curtis got breakfast, Kim got showered and ready for the day.

We ate our breakfast and watched some YouTube videos and then Kim headed out for the day.

Curtis did nothing of interest for the rest of the day!

Kim’s Day;

When Tabitha arrives Kim met her outside and they headed into the city to celebrate her birthday!

As it was 9:30 when they arrived in the city centre parking was a breeze so they were about half an hour ahead of schedule, so popped into a cafe for a coffee.

At about 9:45 Tabitha and Kim walked the small distance to get to the spa where they had a two hour relaxation package booked in – a massage with a body scrub, facial and a foot spa treatment.

The massage was amazing and relaxing. Tabitha went for a combination facial and Kim went for the hydration facial. They lady was very informative and taught Kim loads about her skin and what she is doing wrong with it! After this Tabitha and Kim sat in massage chairs while they had the foot spa, it was so lovely, even though Tabitha’s massage chair didn’t work.

At the end of it all Kim’s massage therapist had another chat about products, routines and stuff, she was so lovely. We then had a chat with her about her travels, as she is French. It was a funny moment when she realised Kim was English because she noticed that she echoing understand her better than she could the Kiwi accent!

We said goodbye / au revior to everyone and headed back to the car. On the way we met up with another one of Tabitha’s friends and we all then drove back to the North Shore to get our nails done.

The three girls deliberated for a while on what colour to pick and Kim even got a stern ‘hurry up’ from one of the nail artists!

After their nails were done the girls all fancied some lunch and Kim had a great idea to had to the cat cafe, so they all jumped in the car and headed over there.

It was so much fun to spend about 40 minutes playing with all the cats, that was until one of them decided to relive themselves on our bags! We took that as our hint to leave.

With so much cuteness in one room we forgot to eat and Tabitha’s friend had to get to the Esplanade to start her shift so thy all hopped back in the car and took the slow road into Devonport.

It was a little odd heading that way again as Kim left the Esplanade nearly 3 months ago! Doesn’t time fly??
They stopped at a local cafe when they arrived in Devonport for ‘lunch’, it was 4pm! No wonder everyone was so hungry!

Each girl grabbed a savoury, sweet and a drink item.

The portions were massive and they all needed up taking takeaway containers! Which is good for Curtis who loves curly fries and brownies!
Tabitha and Kim had a little walk around the town and then headed home.

It was such a brilliant day celebrating a wonderful persons birthday!

Both of us;

When Kim got home, we relaxed for a while and then Curtis had an omelette as dinner along with leftover curly fries from Kim’s dinner.

We then watched a couple of episodes of Modus with lemon cupcakes with vanilla sauce!

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
