Re Start Mall

Hi Lovelies, how was your weekend? Mine was pretty good, went to a mates Friday night for a few wines and a spa, got some stuff done around home Saturday, date night with the bg Saturday night, a yummy stone grill meal followed by a DVD in. Sunday we were up early to do the annual City to Surf. We walked 5 km's and ran the last K. I don't think my knee would handle doing the full 14km! After that we went to a good mates wee boys 3rd Birthday! Kinda ruined the excersise I did with all the cake and lollies haha.
Awhile ago the bf and I decided to go check out the Re Start Mall in central Christchurch. The city centre as you all probably know was destroyed by the Earthquake and over two years later is still partly blocked off, ruins remain and ALOT of empty sections. Cashel Mall as it used to be called was a street for pedestrians that housed most of the central city shopping (along with surreounding streets). It was basically out of order for along time. Today it is a "pop up" type container mall! Its nice and bright and vibrant and there is some great shops and cafe's etc in there. We went for a wander and some lunch. Take a look below and what we saw and some outfit photos too of course!


This used to be all bars along what we called "the Strip"


The Iconic Bridge of Rememberance still stands at the end of the mall



A container ATM!


Ruins, The Rockpool used to be an awesome pool bar that sold "tea pots" and played great Drum n Bass, many a good time spent there
