An Evening out

Last week I had the pleasure of going out with my dear daughter for an evening out.
We were invited to a Chanel event which was a lovely thing to do, to celebrate Mothers Day.
Who could resist a glass of champagne and canapes?

At the pedestrian crossing we were waiting for the lights to change to green, when opposite were some Television cameras pointing directly in our direction.
It wasn't until some of my family and friends texted us to say they had seen us on the evening news and that was the screenshot above.
The Newshub reporters had been doing a story at the Britomart Train station after one of the trains had derailed, not far from where we were.
After we stopped off for dinner at a little Restaurant XuXu  for dumplings.
We had such a fun evening and was great to spend time with my beautiful daughter.

Hope you are all enjoying a lovely weekend


  1. You two looks beautiful together, Carolyn- such a lovely Mothers Day- evening,- I wish I could have done the same- :-) So wonderful for you, to have those memories . Hugs, Dorthe

  2. Oh my goodness you could be your daughters sister and a famous one at that! A girls night out ended up on the news how fun! I didn't have daughters but I sure enjoy a night out with my sons. One of mine lives the closest to us so he came into town and my husband, his mom and me and our son went to dinner for a belated mothers day celebration. I was visiting my mom so when I got back we all went to dinner. Theres nothing like spending time with your kids.
