Set to arrive in stores mid-July. Visit www.rubynz.com
Little Bird Unbakery
This is an old favourite of mine and one I frequent a fair bit whenever I’m in Kingsland. Everything is raw, vegan, gluten free and free of refined sugar. They do great smoothies, inventive lunches and delicious cakes and slices. Eat in or takeaway. The lemon slice is a must.
Showroom 22 Spring/Summer Preview
I attended next season’s preview from the likes of I Love Ugly, Adidas, Glassons, Ingrid Starnes, Juliette Hogan, Kingan Jones, Kathryn Wilson and more. The makeup was really fresh and uncomplicated, with an emphasis on beautiful highlights. Hurry up summer!
Shoot for Chaos & Harmony
I was on hair & makeup for Chaos & Harmony’s Spring/Summer 2014 shoot, which took place at the Dust Palace (an amazing training space for trapeze and aerial artists). The shoes were stunning, of course, and between touch ups I even had a go on the ropes. www.chaosandharmony.co.nz
