New week, new things.

Posted on June 26, 2013

Yeah, yeah, it’s not a new week because it’s Wednesday, but this is still happening so deal with it: Like many other females I know, underwear is kind of an obsession. It’s one of the few things you can purchase without feeling guilty – I mean, everyone needs underwear, right? Everyone wears it, everyone buys it. I’m not going to lie, I have sets. Multiple sets. Some still with tags on. I have a friend who reckons she has enough ‘nice’ (girls will know what I mean by this) sets of lingerie to last at least a month, wearing a new set every day. The latest set I’m coveting is this ‘Sahara cut-out’ by Australian brand, Hatsumi’s Laundry. It comes in both ‘day’ (nude…

You know how sometimes (all the time) you’re sitting there and it’s 10:00am and you’re all, ‘what the hell am I going to make/have for dinner?’ and it’s really stressful and you can’t be bothered cook and your boyfriend/girlfriend/flatmate/brother/kid is going to be at work/school/uni/after-school-activity/book-club late and they’re not going to be able to help you in any way (assholes) but they need to be fed and your whole day is spent thinking about what to do? Well, I have recently come across a solution for this. I mean, you could resort to this (which, by the way, is actually kind of a good option) and suck it up and prepare yourself something, OR you could just get Jess’ Underground Kitchen (if you live in Auckland).

IT’S A WHILE SINCE WE’VE DONE ONE OF THESE HUH. Anyway, I have a few things I’ve come across recently that I feel like sharing: Barkers has collaborated with iconic New Zealand heritage brand, Swanndri for their 100 year anniversary, to create a 12 style capsule collection that went in to store last week. My favourite thing? The above dark green bag. Perfect as carry-on luggage methinks. Also, the scarves. They’re 100% wool and there’s a dark green check one which is great for Winter.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s not the start of a week. It’s not even close to the start of this week today, but things came up and I’ve been busy for the last two days so let’s just pretend it is. The new Nike Flyknit Lunar 1+. I’ve got the Flyknit trainers in the black/white and they’re pretty much the most comfortable shoes I own. I haven’t tried these new ones with the Lunar sole, but I’ve been told they wear like a dream. Plus, they come in a hot pink which is you know, ‘hype’ or whatever. Personally, I’m not nearly cool enough or confident enough to wear hot pink sneakers right now (or maybe ever… So hard to say) but the black/grey or…

New week, new things: Elver.

Posted on January 21, 2013

Weeks and weeks ago I was sent an email about Elver. I get sent a lot of emails about new brands – some good, some not so much my thing – so when I see anything that has so much as a hint of ‘this-is-my-new-label-I-think-you’ll-like-it-please-blog-about-me’ it goes straight into a folder – unread, and then they pile up and days pass and those days turn into weeks and you get where I’m going with this. By the time I read through the press releases and look through the images to decide whether I want to write about it, it could already be old news. #firstworldproblems So, back to Elver. They first emailed me on the 10th of December and it’s taken this long to get…

Hey, I haven’t done this in a while so it’s well overdue, but here are a few new things for you to spend your money on/check out this week: AS Colour have a whole bunch of new product dropping. I went along to one of their shoots the other day and saw a few of the things. A lot hasn’t arrived yet but their new striped tees (as seen on Erin (Clyne) above) dropped in store (and online) last week. Looking for some stocking fillers? Look no further. Personally, I’d buy your brother/boyfriend/father/friend the men’s organic tee in white or natural, or the paper tee in grey marle – they both look good on most girls too.  For those who want something a little…
