The Style Workshop. 

The Thursday night catwalk show with Tessa, Aleisha, Jo and Dean, our professional models from Kirsty Bunny Management, was brilliant fun!  

I hope you all had a fab time seeing the spring/summer trends up close and fabulous! 

  
I love working with this team. We’ve worked together on a few shows now and it really is a joy backstage. Everyone works hard, knows their job inside and out, is professional on and off stage and most importantly they are all lovely authentic people. (Who just happen to be ridiculously good looking!) 

We have a lot of laughs backstage and this helps us create a smooth and seamless show onstage for you all. 

  

Mr Richard Kavanagh (the king of all things hair) opened the show with his top hair trends and tips.   

 
Then the models and I workshopped the latest looks and gave away some amazing prizes!

I have already heard this morning that the striped monochrome dress on Tessa in the shot above is selling like hot cakes in Jacqui E so don’t miss out – get in soon! 

Hope you all had fun. I know we did! 

(Thanks to Clinique for my make-up and Salute for my hair because we all know I did not wake up like this!)

It’s Queensgates turn! 

Today the finalists in the Youth Stylist competition hit Westfield Queensgate. Last night they were in Chch and last week with me in St Luke! 

It’ll be interesting for me to see how they have grown & evolved over this time. 

The youth stylists will each present four looks for spring/summer styled by them – and you the audience will  

vote for your fave. The King of Hair – Richard Kavanagh (Creative Director of Rodney Wayne) presents hair trends and Bobbi Brown make-up artist Matt teaches us all how to update our makeup for the season ahead.

This show is literally head to toe fabulous!

Behind the scenes.

OMG its all go! I’ve been swapping sizes and sourcing those missing essentials like a crazy person. I couldn’t recall where is sourced a pair of shoes and literally went into a shoe store and asked the staff to save me from a mental breakdown. They knew where the shoes were from thank good ness! Mystery solved! 

Now I get to relax in the hairdressers chair while reading over the notes for this afternoons show while enjoying a divine cup of tea.

Is it my imagination or does a cup of tea always taste better when someone else has made it for you?

St Lukes Show

Today I spent hours sourcing clothing for the St Lukes Westfield Style Workshop. My feet are aching still. We had a fitting with our models and as I was leaving  St Lukes the staging was going in. #excitement 

  
I can’t wait for the show to begin. See you tomorrow.

Road trip to Whanganui. 

This weekend I took a road trip to Whanganui post flood. 

It is a very photogenic town.

  
   
    
 Beautiful blue skies all weekend but you can see where the water has left her mark:

   
    
    
 
The fog rolled in down the river at dusk and the clouds became golden puffs of light at sunset.

   
    
 
Beautiful town, beautiful memories.

Thanks Whanganui.

DIY Denim. 

The first cut is the deepest but not the easiest. So I found at Andrea Moore when invited to customize her new denim.

Taking a pair of scissors to $250 jeans is not something I do lightly. However once I got started it was quite addictive. 

Fast forward two hours of sandpaper, scissors and a handy safety pin spot of DIY and my jeans are ready to take on the world!

Thanks Andrea Moore team x
