After checking out Alix from the cherry blossom girl's wedding photos - it inspired me to do a post on balloons. And if you haven't checked out her wedding photos, you must, as they are waaaayyy too gorgeous - that girl is a complete stunner. The photo of the balloons in the sky is from her wedding, and all the rest are from weheartit xxx

when i grow up i want to be Anna Dello Russo

Anna Dello Russo is the editor at large of Vogue Nippon - and is absolutely fabulous.
Every time I see a photo at her, I idolize her more. Her style is amazing - so colorful, so fresh and so original.

She has two beautiful apartments next door to each other - one for her, and one for her clothes.

When i grow up - i wanna be just. like. you.

It is woman like Anna that inspire me to work hard in this industry; hopefully one day will find success in the fashion industry <3 just. like. her.

can't wait for...

Long hot sunny days at Tawharanui - its one dreary weekend outside - grey skies, bit of rain and a chill in the air. A dreary weekend inside too -essays, sore throat and a cough. This summer I shall have graduated university and will be free....

fine smelling locks

I was in the shower this morning, washing my hair - and just couldnt believe how amazing the new herbal essences range smells, and i thought - i better blog about this!

One thing shampoo's and conditioners must do is smell amazing, and quite frankly - i smell scrumptious!

Orchid and Coconut Milk

Honeyed pear

So random to blog on herbal essences...but your nose will thank me for it!!!

How to procrastinate...

I went down to the Devonport village, picked up my dry-cleaning, and had a perve at the Devonport Chocolates....

Maybe buy some..cos why not? payday yesterday!

all $10 worth..hmm.. mint truffle, cappuccino and cherry liquor (cherry inside yum!)

View from Devonport across to the city - very rainy today!!!

THEN decide you should probably go to The Department Store. And drool at everything in Karen Walker, hmm. Perhaps take a photo of yourself - just because.

Wearing my man-friend's tee shirt, oroton pearls, lara parker jacket, oroton bag, lara parker pants, country road socks and jeffery campbell wedges.

It was WAY too cold today, way to rainy and generally sucky - and i had NOTHING to wear. Next winter i will buy something warm.

Now i should perhaps write an essay? marketing integration anyone? i thought not.

out of bounds

Okay. So I REALLY need to stop going into stores. Today I popped down to The Department Store, to 'visit' my friend Sarah in Karen Walker. Nooot a good idea. As not I want HEAPS.

As i posted below - I'm def sold on the grey tee from KW's new season.

I also loooove this dress! Your supposed to tie the ties at the back, but i like them tied in a bow at the front, so it's alot more smock like
(hey what a cool phone shot bec.... photography genius)

And i really need to get around to get some of the Pointer for Karen Walker shoes - im glad the boat shoe is continuing through to the summer season yay!

I saw the new Beaucoops in Black Box and they look AMAZING - def keen on the full boot! I didnt let myself venture upstairs to TOPSHOP, wallet isnt healthy enough to handle that top floor.

OH and a word of note - Terri (my blog partner) is REALLY busy with uni work atm - but will be posting soon!!

Beau Coops

I here the summer season beau coops are in store at Superette now. I was thinking i should probably invest in some, but not sure? Our gorgeous friend Shannan lives by hers, and says they are the most comfortable thing ever. But im not sure yet.
Not sure if i want the Frankly 01 zippy ones or the full boot??
Opinions? Should i take the plunge?

sweat it out

i love these grey sweats! Perfect amount of slouch, gunna have to get one i think!

favourite things

I live in my Jeffery Campbell 99's, I'm 5'7"(and a half..) and so cant really get away with wearing ridiculour shoes without feeling like a monster. So these are perfect.

AND not only have Solestruck restocked these babies, i see good old jeffery has mixed the style up for the northern fall season!

hmm... i wasn't supposed to buy anything (or tempt myself by going into stores) this month and do that "saving" thing.. plan ruined in the first week of month...
