I have to admit that as I grow older I certainly steer clear of more adventerous fashion choices and prefer to make practical decisions when buying clothes or putting my outfits together.   For example, in the cooler months I will be sure to have a jacket, knit or some form of warmth to fall back on when going out at night.   Back in the day, a jacket would have...

I was pretty lucky last weekend as I had the chance to take a trip to one of my favourite Australian destinations, Melbourne.   It has been a few years since my last visit and I have to say apart from the invasion of UK High Street retailers, my favourite places to shop, eat and socialise remain just as I fondly remember them.   The weather, however, in true...

If you’ve entered any of our competitions during February, you could be a luck winner…find out here. Also this week we are madly in love with the adorable new collection from Kathryn Wilson, Baby Wilson… warning, these will deliver cuteness overload!   And, if you’re after items that are available in grown-up sizes then we figured that as autumn is...

Summer is officially over, but that seems pretty hard to believe with some of the gorgeous weather I have been enjoying here in Auckland. And this month I’m going to soak up as much sunshine as possible (weather permitting, of course) before we have to say sayonara to Daylight Savings, which officially ends on April 5.   Also worth celebrating this month is...

For those of you enjoy a morning cup of coffee, then I recommend you try the coffee body products from The Aromatherapy Company.   I’m seriously in love with the Therapy Coffee Body Scrub which has become a permanent fixture in my shower these days. It’s the perfect way to rejuvenate my skin, leaving it feeling so soft and polished. Then for an extra little treat,...

This week, we’ve taken a little bit more of a beauty theme here at FashioNZ as there are some great things (beauty-wise) happening at the moment.   Plus, after weeks of long, hot, sun-filled days and endless swims, it’s the perfect time of year to see what great, new products are hitting the shelves; many of which are designed to restore moisture and balance to...

I’m pretty sure I say this every year so I'm keeping up with tradition – yes, I cannot believe we are in February already! Christmas seriously feels like it was last week!   However, the long weekends and public holidays at the beginning of the year certainly makes getting back into the swing of things a little bit easier to take.   Another reason...

Well, I never thought I’d say this, but over the weekend I actually got a little sunned-out!   Mind you I’m not complaining, any long weekend packed with a healthy dose of summer sun is fine by me. However, I think I probably need to pace myself a little next time and, perhaps, hit the stores and check out some of the new season goodies which are slowly making an...

Happy New Year and I hope you all had a wonderful summer break.   While I didn’t get away over the holiday period I had family and friends visitng from the US, London and Sydney so, spending a couple of weeks catching up with everyone, certainly kept me busy. In fact I think I need another holiday to recover!   Thank you to those of you who entered the...

I find there is always a little confusion with the office Secret Santa at the end of the year. In most of the places I have worked there has been a practise of bringing a gift of minimal value to the end of year Christmas function. These are then handed out at pressie time.   Generally, I’ve seen this as a chance to buy the most random thing I can possibly find and hope...

There is certainly that buzz in the air as many people start the wind down to a well deserved break.   Do spare a thought for those working in retail at this time of year. Many work extended hours in the lead up to Christmas and are back on the shop floor when others are packing up the car to head off on a summer holiday.   I know it can get frustrating when...

I must admit I have been very fortunate in my life because Christmas has always been a time of celebration in my family. Of course, from time to time, we all have a mumble about this and that, but when December 25 hits, all those busy, end of year stresses, which we encountered, seem to quickly become a blur as we enjoy the day.   However, many people are not as fortunate and it’s...

I think it’s fair to say that the countdown to Christmas has well and truly begun and I’m also happy to report that I have started my Christmas shopping, purchasing one of the 37 gifts I’ll need to buy to cover the family this year.   It’s hardly a roaring start, but, at least, it’s a start I suppose!   I’d like to get a little...
