The local business we are highlighting this week is Ruff Diamonds NZ. Their motto is 'rocks 4 bad boyz' and they sell jewellery for motorcycle riders, skaters, surfers, dirt bikers and motor-cross riders. They also cater to musical artists and design one-off custom-made pieces. Their jewellery consists of high-end sovereign rings and big necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
Ahu Ahu Beach Villas offers luxury villa and lodge accommodation on the coast of Taranaki. Whether it be a romantic retreat, time out alone, or a gathering with friends and family, it will fill your needs and your soul.
The four villas are made from reclaimed and recycled timbers. These materials combined with undulating plaster walls, hand-crafted joinery and Hundertwasser inspired bottle windows create a charming ‘European styled New Zealand flavoured’ synergy.
The two-bedroom Oraukawa Lodge is set into the hillside and has a large lounge that is perfect for gatherings large and small. Nuala and David look forward to your stay.
Goose Boards is run by two Kiwi mates who wanted to have a crack at something fun together. They take Kiwi native woods destined for the dump or burn pile and upcycle them into beautiful cruiser skate boards. Each board is unique and has its own story to tell. They have a range of sizes that suit all ages and skill levels.

Snow chains can be an absolute essential when traveling in New Zealand during the winter months. As a result of motor vehicles being caught without chains in sudden snowfalls over winter in the Queenstown Lakes District and Milford Sound, a bylaw has been introduced.
The bylaw states, "At the direction of an enforcement officer or authorised officer, the driver of any vehicle may be required to fit snow chains to such vehicle on any road, and no person shall drive, or direct or allow such vehicle to be driven without such snow chains fitted."
Please be aware of this bylaw if you are going to be travelling in these areas during the winter period.
Non-compliance will result in a $150 fine for Queenstown Lakes District and $750 for Milford Sound.
Snow chains can be added for as little as $10 a day, up to a maximum of $40 per hire.
This video from Cardrona Alpine Resort shows you how to fit them:

Fabulous rental service. Easiest by far! Book online. Well priced. I actually got the car I wanted and not an 'upgrade' that I had to pay for. No additional costs when you get to the desk after a long flight. Staff were friendly and helpful. Drop off was super easy. I would definitely rent again and highly recommend!Annie Charlie
