oh its been a while

summer in the air

what have i been doing lately?

i studied - with the entertaining company of my man-friends cat Elephant. He isn't much help, post-video he decided to sleep on my notes.

I then celebrated the end of exams -

I am now looking forward to graduation - and i have my eye on this dress for the day

I have also scored the most amazing new job - i am so lucky to have a job in this economic climate; let alone one with an amazing workplace full of the most lovely, intelligent and hilarious people. It is such an awesome company - and in the industry I want to be in!!!.. Can see myself there for a very long time...and its only been 3 weeks! Honestly - I'm on top of the world right now!!!

Hope you are all well :)

I have lost my camera - so iPhone shots it is until it unearths itself! xx

I will probably continue to be quite absent for next couple of weeks.

Have been in the midst of that last wave of assignments - and am now moving into exam time.
Gotta love it... (I even have an exam on my 21st birthday...and THEN the morning after!)

Ill be back with bells on after the 6th xxx

A few of my favourite things: Top 5 blogs

There are lots of blogs - but only a few draw me in so much that I check them everyday - so here are my top 5 picks at the moment: (in no particular order)

Alix represents everything pretty, whimsical and girly in this world. The cherry blossom girl is a nostalgic outlook on a world full of pastels, balloons, frills - perfectly french.

The Kingdom of Style
Queen Michelle and Queen Marie have one of the most entertaining blogs around. I can browse through the archives of this blog for hours; it's content is so wide ranging it never gets dull. From Michelle's grungy looks to Marie's penchant for anything quirky - these two make the perfect blogging pair. They blog about all sorts - encompassing the whole world of pop culture. A must read!!!

I have been reading Karla's Closet for a couple of years now - and I never get sick of what she wears. First things first - this girl is a TOTAL babe - and completely plays up her feminine bod with classic pencil skirts and blouses; whilst still adding her own person twist. She isn't afraid of bold colour; I think she is a true leader. She has the most amazing vintage peices - I would LOVE to raid her wardrobe!

Victoria Tornegren
I have only come across this Swedish beauty's blog in the last few months - and I regret having not found it sooner! Victoria's style blog is a gorgeous monochromatic look at her fashion world. I would die to have this girls room.

Jak & Jil
Jak and Jil is my favourite street style blog. Tommy Ton takes the best snaps from all over the world - that capture a world I just cant wait to live in!

So those are my top 5.
My other favourites at the moment include gorgeous New Zealander Nicola, and her blog KnockYouForSix, Isaac Likes, Bryan Boy, Luna Supernova, Knight Cat and of course Fashion Toast.

Here is a few things on my wishlist for summer (although it is FREEZING today)

Jeffrey Campbell snicks, Karen Walker strawberry chain necklace, Jeffrey Campbell Mariels, Karen Walker peep frill short, Ruby penelope dress & Ruby billy dress

20 Questions with Hunter McLeod

Winner of the New Zealand Fashion Week New Talent competition (beating out my little brother!); Hunter McLeod has attracted a mountain of media attention. Plucked from his Maccas uniform and flown to the big city - he has already scored a number of high profile gigs including multiple NZFW shows and become the face of the new Salasai lookbook. This uber babe is sure to find success in the industry - having come so far in just a few months.
I caught up with Hunter via facebook for a quick 20 questions:

1. What inspired you to enter the new talent competition?
Looking down at the advert for the comp whilst donning a Macca's uniform was inspiration enough haha.. So hard to add swagger to that gear...
2. What has changed the most since winning the competition? The amount of make-up I wear?
3 . What did you want to be when you were younger?
Supermodel (Can't remember lack the patience to stick to much :D)
4. What agency are you with?
Clyne (Love them!!!)
5. What was your best NZFW moment?
Knocking the debut on the head.. Exhilarating!

7. So far, what is the best thing you have gained from winning the new talent competition?
Knowledge plus insight into the backstage of the fashion world! ..... + Free hotel for the whole week ;)
8. Is the stache going to stay?
The stache will come off in due time...
9. What would you consider the worst fashion faux par?
Hmmh... Each to their own style wise. One should look in the mirror before going out. It's OK to TRY look mean men.
10. What’s your staple outfit?
Always love to mix it up.. Can't go wrong with rockin skinnys and a head turner upstairs.
11. How do you fill your spare time?
Wrecking N.P town with my bro Hog and the boys (THESIX), getting away with my lovely girl Hannah or just plain reflection.. Broad as fuck question here seriously! Lol.
12. Favourite piece of clothing?
Hmmm probably the 1 grand hand knitted cardi by Coogi I snapped up in Fiji - Showstopper.
13. What should everyone have in their wardrobe?
Accessories! Even a decent necklace over a typical tee/jean get-up can spice a look up ten fold (See Nick Von K ;P)
14. Currently wearing (in a non creepy way)?
Cheap Monday Blue Steel Velvet skinnys, SGC Semi-Garnet Pyramid ring and a necklace of my mothers name in hieroglyphics. That is all.
15. Favourite brand?
Hmm Cheap Monday skinnys take up the majority of my wardrobe super comfy jeans but meh labels/brands you can find the stray ultimate piece in an opshop etc.
16. Favourite store?
17. Favourite band?
Kings.... Old school Kings deff. Mood dependant.
18. One place you have to visit in New Plymouth?
The Bunker
19. What does 2011 hold for Hunter McLoed?
