Oh, by the way...

Just a note to let you lovely people know, two of my all time favourite places are having sales this weekend. Unfortunately I am way too poor to take advantage of this, but that just leaves more for you!

So, if your in Auckland, grab your wallets, your fighting spirit and split your day between 'The Department Store' in Takapuna and Juliette Hogan's Ponsonby Road shop.

I will be disappointed if you come away empty handed.

Now go forth and shop!

News stand update.

Vogue Uk’s February 2011 cover has hit the stands and I really like it. It features Mrs Beckham looking lovely and was photographed by Alasdair McLellan. I am not usually a huge fan of Victoria Beckham covers. Don’t get me wrong I think of all the celebri-spawn turned fashion designers she has actually proved herself. But she always looks so… so… angry.

This time however, she has thrown out her usual hard edge - frown riddled face for a happy(ish) look. I think the cover looks so wonderfully soft, natural and warm with just the right amount of 90s charm (a prominent style being used in covers and editorials at the moment).

The shoot itself seems to continue this soft charm, although I have only seen a tiny snippet it of it. When I get my hands on it in full I will post it for you to enjoy.

My own mr big.

Among my many lovely christmas gifts was a very special home-made present.

My wonderful man knows me too well, or maybe he was just sick of wading through a sea of shoes every morning to get to the bathroom... whatever the thought process, what eventuated was this.

A shoe rack. A shoe rack with spotlights for my shoes.

Can you think of anything better? Apart from maybe a bunch of beautiful shoes to go on them?

Happy new year.

Happy new year readers. I have just returned from a nice escape with some lovely people. Here is a little snippet of my week away.

There were many games, a pair of leopard print harem pants I almost never removed and a kune kune pig living with us.

(Thanks Alex for this last shot... it is beautiful - all others by me)

I hope you all had a great Christmas and New years and I very much hope you are watching this space....
