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...

I think that next week I am one of the few people who is working though between the rare event that has occurred this year with long weekends. Taking three days off, plus the public holidays and weekends over the period is giving about 90% of my co-workers a nice 10 day break... I can’t believe I didn’t figure that out sooner! And I know there will be a few media peole out...

Finally, the much anticipated Royal visit is upon us. I have to admit that, yes, I do consider myself a royalist, although I would have to say probably more of a part time one; I don't collect tea cups, stamps or anything like that. I did, however, do the Buckingham Palace Tour when I was in London a couple of years ago and it was one of the highlights of my trip. The one aspect of this...

I know so many people that really enjoy the extra daylight at the end of the day and when it’s that time of year, and summer is just around the corner, I do too. But lately in my attempts to go to the gym before work waking up at 6am feels like 3am and I find it almost impossible to rise and start the day. I swear I use up all my energy just deciding whether to jump out...

So I've been away, enjoying a long weekend to celebrate with my sister, who has just turned 40, and I have to say she is taking her new found maturity considerably well. In fact, I think she is going to enjoy her naughty forties which is what it's apparently called. I wouldn’t know, I’m not quite there yet but I think 40 is definitely the new 30, and I’m pretty...

I have out-of-control, unruly curly hair which 99% of the time is straightened and 90% of the time I have it tied back so, as you can imagine, I get very bored very quickly when it comes to my hair styles. And I have to admit I am a total consumer when it comes to hair tools and products which have the potential to make my life, tending to my wild locks, just that little bit...

For those of you who went along to see the fashion that Auckland city so generously showcased last Saturday on New Zealand's Longest Catwalk, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. It was a beautiful and very warm day and the atmosphere in city was buzzing with eager spectators keen to catch a glimpse of new season looks. I have to say that stylist Kylie Cooke, did an amazing job styling...

I'm not sure if it's just me but I have started to notice a considerable drop in temperature over the last week or so and, to be honest, I don't know how I feel about it! On the one hand I’m looking forward to revive my wardrobe with new season looks and I can’t wait to buy a new pair of boots. On the other hand I don’t know if I’m ready to...

So here we are, the last Fashion Report for February 2014 and also the last for summer, with the official start of autumn beginning this Saturday! And while we look forward to what arrives in the stores over the next three months, FashioNZ contributor and jetsetter, Evelyn Ebrey has swapped freezing New York for a chilly, yet mild London for Fashion Week. Of course, with the seasons being...

Well, this weekend was certainly a big one for Auckland with a trifecta of events keeping the central city and suburbs busy. Thankfully, the weather decided to play along and I’m pretty sure there were a few sore heads and sunburnt bodies to start the week off yesterday. Me, well I stayed well away from the action and decided to do something nice for myself, by undertaking an...

Don't you just love a good wedding? I was part of a bridal party over the weekend and what a magical day it was. Of course, any event, such as a wedding, does come with an expected amount of stress and a misty, rainy start to Saturday morning certainly didn’t make things especially easy. However, the gods smiled on us and blue skies soon shone through so the outdoor wedding could...

I'd like to think that we run pretty good giveaways, week to week, but this week's prize of leather pants from Sabatini is one competition I seriously wish I could enter. When I saw the imagery I thought, wow, these would be an amazing wardrobe addition and not just for now, but for many winters to come. This week, we also have all the info on Karen Walker’s Ethical Fashion...

Feeling like a very proud Kiwi today after watching the success of Lorde at this year's Grammy Awards! Even if she had walked away empty-handed, her performance in front some of the most talented people in the business was enough to send shivers down my spine and I am in total awe of this 17-year-old girl from the North Shore. And what about her style? Personally I love...

I have to admit, things have been a little quiet on the fashion front so far but, as with previous years, there is always a bit of calm before the storm. What's more, I know there will only be a couple more weeks until another year of fashion launches, parties and shows will be upon us...exciting stuff! So, what has been happening so far in 2014! Firstly, Ezibuy and three New...

For those whose holiday came to an end last week - Welcome Back! This first week back is always the hardest. Trust me – I spent last week wandering around the office looking a little dazed and confused, which is weird as I did ‘nothing’ while I was on my break. Okay, maybe not literally nothing, that sounds like I spent all my days in my PJ’s catching up on...
