I can’t believe that New Zealand Fashion Week is just a few weeks away; it seems I was at the last one just a few months ago, crazy stuff. This year is shaping up to be quite fabulous with a diverse array of designers announced just last week, more details can be found here http://www.fashionz.co.nz/news/provisional-line-up-announced.html This week we also take a look...

I love this time of year when the new season is almost upon us and it’s only a matter of weeks before we start seeing shop windows filled with new season gorgeousness.   And while I can’t proclaim that summer is just around the corner, the promise of spring is enough to put a smile on my face, well, for now anyway.   I am defiantely one who prefers to...

If there is ever a time of year that I love having a makeover, It's now!   Why not let someone else do all the hard work while you sit back and enjoy some primping and preening before your next special event? You'll show up looking 100% gorgeous with about 10% effort – those are my kind of numbers.   If this sounds like a bit of you, then you must check out the makeover we...

So I’ve just checked the weather forecast for the next few days and of course the prediction is wet and windy, no surprises there!   But the good thing is that I don’t have to be roaming the streets of Auckland in this gloomy weather when I can do everything I need this week from the warmth of home.   First thing on the agenda is to check out the Fast...

Even though July is in the middle of winter, I've got to say that it is one of my favourite months of the year and, no, it's not because I like to hit the snow or enjoy getting saturated as I run to my car each morning. It's because July is my birth month. In all honesty, getting older has frightened me a little in the past. I figure there are so many things that I should know how to do at...

I like to use the winter months to go into hibernation, opting for a warm bath and an early night over the social frivolities that would normally consume my weekends. Perhaps it’s something that has come with age or maybe I was just way too social over summer that my body is taking the time to play catch up. Rither way, I am thoroughly enjoying kicking back and looking after...

Well, I have to say if there is one bonus of being in the middle of the year it would have to be the SALES! Red signage is starting to appear and I’m starting to fizz with excitement to see what great bargains await, although I’ve had my eye on a pair of boots but as they’ve only recently gone into store, I doubt they’ll be on sale yet. Fingers crossed! I’ve...

There are so many people I speak to who don't really pay much attention to their skin care regimes over the winter, especially when it comes to moisturising and exfoliation. Even though we are covered over the cooler months, these next few months are the ideal time to pamper skin and nourish hair. Not only is it a great time to repair damage done over over the warmer months just...

I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable long weekend as it's the last one we get for a while. It’s hard to believe that it’s the middle of the year although the arctic blast we felt last week was certainly a reminder that winter is here and intends to stick around for a few months yet. So what does winter have in store for you? For those lucky enough to be heading...

It's great to be back after having the past two weeks off although I have to admit that the drop in temperature has made for a very chilly reality check. My newly tanned skin is fading as I type. So where did I go? I know I gave you a few clues in my last note and congratulations to Georgina Gellert who was the first reader to correctly guess that I spent my holiday in beautiful...

This week we have some seriously cool prizes up for grabs. Whoever wins the Saben competition will be the envy of all of us as we are not allowed to enter the competition. Also we’ve been going a little crazy over lips of late so we thought it would be rude not to share some of our favourite lip products around at the moment. Plus, you could be one of our competiton winners...

It's been a week without the editor here and so far so good. While Petrina flew overseas last week, we thought we’d do a little flying ourselves so this week we take a look at yoga and off-duty fashion brand, We’Ar’s new collection titled Fly North. Also, LIAM has something special in store for those looking for that perfect piece for an upcoming special occasion. Be...

This is my last week writing to you for a couple weeks as I'm off on holiday in a few days and I'm super excited. I’m not going to tell you where I am going, but I’ll give you a couple of clues; who knows, there may even be a prize for the first person to correctly guess my holiday destination. Firstly, it’s not a nearby location and it’s going to take me between...

I hope that you enjoyed the last couple of long weekends even if you didn't take advantage of the few days in between to take a longer break. I have to say the weather in my part of town certainly kept me on my toes. That “four seasons in one day” weather is so typical of New Zealand! The drop in temperature has motivated me to locate my winter clothes and see which...

We also check out a few of the shows from Wellington Fashion Week in which 2014 marked it’s third year. Well done Cam and his team. For those feeling a little guilty about the excess chocolate and/or wine that was consumed over the long weekend then you’re in luck, as we are giving away a pair of adidas Energy BOOST® shoes; win these and you’ll run those...
