I booked a last minute trip to Queenstown – this is what that looks like

Posted on March 10, 2015

Me, at Auckland Domestic Airport, using the new booking.com app to find last minute accommodation. For those who know me, booking a trip away for the following day is something slightly out of character. I’m usually a planner: organised, pedantic – some might say too pedantic – and prepared. But it’s not every Friday that you’re asked if you would like to go away the next day and try out a new app for booking accommodation last minute. It’s also not every day that it’s your six year blog anniversary either, so with those two things in mind, I nicely asked my boss for Monday off and dropped a bunch of cash on some flights for Ben and I to Queenstown for a spontaneous, celebratory weekend…

Winter dressing

Posted on March 6, 2015

Saskia at 62 Models. Photos/James K Lowe.  I was recently approached by Farmers to see if I could find new winter product within their stores that I would incorporate into my wardrobe. I’m not going to lie, when I first heard Farmers I was skeptical – mostly because I am pretty fussy about clothes and I will be the first to admit that I can be kind of a snob when it comes to brands (which is ridiculous because it is rarely, if ever, that I can afford to purchase designer gears), but it is not every day that I am presented with a challenge like this, and I think it’s an interesting project. So, I went into my local branch, the Newmarket store. I first…

Happy Monday, would you like some Karen Walker eyewear?

Posted on September 30, 2013

Today has been pretty average. Firstly, one second it’s sunny, the next it’s a bloody rainstorm. Secondly, the thing I talked about yesterday – how at the Moet event a girl was wearing the same RUBY playsuit that I was – it got put on the NZ Herald website with a ‘who wore it better?’ tagline, which is kind of gross. Anyway, incase any of you out there had a bit of an off day too, I’ve teamed up with online store, Precious Peg, to give away a prize that will hopefully cheer you up (and if you’ve been having a good day, maybe this will make it even better?) SO, if you’d like to win some Karen Walker eyewear, all you have to…

This is my favourite shot from the Stolen Girlfriends Club Autumn/Winter 2012 campaign.

Posted on January 23, 2012

About 20 minutes ago the new Stolen Girlfriends Club Autumn/Winter 2012 campaign imagery was presented to me, I came across this shot and had to share it with you. It’s my favourite of the lot. There are several reasons for this: Firstly, I really like cornflakes. Well, I don’t really eat cereal that often (read: at all) but if I were to choose any cereal in the world as my favourite, it would probably be cornflakes. They might be boring, but with a bit of sugar sprinkled on top they can really be quite delightful. But I digress. I like that they’ve used cornflakes. Secondly, the cornflakes are Homebrand. Extra points for this. Thirdly, we all know I think Georgia Fowler is a fecking…

Huffer's Spring/Summer 2011-2012 Coming Attraction campaign is the best thing since sliced bread.

Posted on September 6, 2011

Have any of you seen any of these shots yet? They’re from the new Huffer Spring/Summer 2011-2012, ‘Coming Attraction’ campaign and I love them a lot. I am not one to gush over campaign shots that often, but I do think that this one is worth mentioning. After seeing so many shiny, perfect, airbrushed campaigns, it’s refreshing to see something with a little grit. The model choice is perfect – they’ve used Alyssa (62 Models), Tia (Clyne) and Kitty (Red Eleven) who are all beautiful girls and fantastic models (and I think Alyssa is definitely one to watch) – and combined them with a couple of edgy boys (Jimmy Mac and Isaac from N Model Management). They go well together and it all just…

Things I want from Vogue's Online Shopping Night.

Posted on June 8, 2011

What are you planning on doing tonight? If you are anything like me and you usually spend your Wednesday evenings either tucked up infront of the telly and bored to tears, or tucked up infront of your laptop and bored to tears, 1. I feel your pain, and 2. have no fear, I have the answer to your Wednesday night restlessness: online shopping. More specifically, the Vogue Online Shopping Night (VOSN). “Whatttt?”, you ask. “What you talkin’ ’bout?” Let me tell you. From 5:00pm Australian time (7:00pm New Zealand time) today, a whole bunch of local and international brands are going on an online sale frenzy for the VOSN. I’m talking all sorts of online shopping deals (discounts, gifts with purchase, free shipping etc),…
