It’s been a big week in blogland – first there was the exciting news that VegemiteVix had won bronze in the very competitive #England competition on Expats Blogs! Bronze! Wow. I’m absolutely thrilled and very thankful for all you lovely people who voted and said such brilliant things about the blog. Thanks.

Living in England

Then hard on the heels of that little bit of excitement I received an email from the huge travellers’ network with over 50 million tuning in, to say that VegemiteVix has been included in a list of Top International Foodie Blogs.


Thank you so much, I am delighted. I think that’s very real applause for the Vegemite/Antipodean way of life and seeing things. So I guess I need to put up some pics of the brilliant food I’m enjoying here in Auckland – like this pretty little chicken salad I devoured at Rosehip in Parnell on Monday.


Gorgeous chicken salad with strips of pecorino, almonds, olives and snow pea shoots.

Yum, yum and double yum. And thank you for all for reading and commenting.

      LOL. Very true! Was thinking about you yesterday as I met with someone who could have been your Kiwi sister. Would love to see you down this part of the world..

      Thank you Russell. I am loving it! And will be rebranding VegemiteVix in the new year. Though still talking about expat life, travel, parenting, food and other interesting stuff just adding in the Kiwi angle. Stand by. xx

    Congratulations! I’ve arrived at the party too late to vote, I’m sorry. Still you did just fine without me – thrilled for you, and congrats on the Foodie listing too 🙂
