Lonely Hearts

As I mentioned last week I had the opportunity to visit the studio of a New Zealand designer and I jumped at the chance for a behind the scenes nosey. So the husband and I went to Auckland, picked up Isaac along the way and ventured to the North Shore for a visit to the Lonely Hearts studio.
(velvet cropped top, bandit dress in maroon, bag, hat & shoes my own)
When we arrived they had lunch for us and we sat down and met the team and looked at some pictures from the Winter 2011 lookbook for their "Little Bandits" collection, and then I had a bit of a play with the clothes and tried on some different outfits.
(long pleated skirt in maroon, bandit tee)
She was a rebel, a true bohemian. She didn’t give a damn about what was in-in fashion or anything else. She lived the way she wanted, with money and without.
The Lonely Hearts team and their amazing choice of shoes

A look around the studio- racks of beautiful clothes and material and all things inspiring.

All in all it was incredible day- so lovely to meet such a talented bunch of people who are so passionate about what they're doing. And just because I love Lonely Hearts and I love seeing kiwi's live their dream, I also quickly want to show you a couple of my favourite looks from their Little Bandits lookbook:

(velvet pinafore, silk shirt)
(sleeveless shirt dress)

So what do you guys think? I'm a big fan and so is Rumi Neely. If you want to check out more from them then make sure you head to their website, facebook page or twitter :)

Thanks Lonely Hearts for having me, I'll be back soon!

date day in Ponsonby

While in Auckland last week the husband and I took some time out for a wander through Ponsonby and an afternoon date at one of my favourite Auckland cafes, One 2 One. The weather here has been so amazing lately- crystal clear skies and warm sunshine, so it's been nice to enjoy more time outdoors and swap coffee and hot chocolates for juice and iced tea. 

Hope you're having a lovely weekend wherever you are in the world x

(p.s i love how you can see my arms holding out the camera in Jeremy's sunglasses in the first picture haha)

Blue Valentine

If you haven't already seen the preview for Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams' new film Blue Valentine then check it out above. The film documents their characters' marriage and evolution over a few years and cuts between different time periods. I'm so excited to see this as I've always loved both of them but sadly for kiwis it's not expected to be released until sometime in 2011.

What movies are you guys excited to see? My latest I saw was The Town which I thought was pretty good!

Friday, October 22, 2010


Today I'm off to visit the studio of a New Zealand fashion label with the husband and Isaac from Isaac Likes. I should have some more pictures and info to share with you guys soon :)

Also while I have your attention, how exciting is the new Frankie "mook" SPACES. Ahh I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy- that's gone straight to the top of my Christmas wishlist (hint hint to my husband).

Gary Pepper Vintage

As I've hinted at recently, I've been involved in a project which took me on a trip to Australia. During that trip I was lucky enough to get to spend time wining and dining with Nicole from Gary Pepper Vintage. Nicole is one of the most talented, beautiful and creative people I have ever met in my life and I am so glad to have met her!

If you don't know about Nicole already, she runs an extremely successful online vintage store (keep your eye out here for new listings) and she's only 21!

I am so grateful to blogging that it has given me the opportunity to meet such talented and inspiring people like Nicole. It's so awesome to see people living their dream and it motivates me to chase my goals for my own life.

My first Diana pics

One sunny afternoon a few weeks ago the husband and I had a date at the park complete with hot chocolates and our first play with the Diana mini, and these pictures are the result. We had fun shooting from the hip, snapping away at any point of the wind-on, and not worrying about framing up the perfect shot. 

What do you think? This has me so excited to get my next film developed!

P.S I've added my pictures to flickr, if anyone is interested you can find them HERE.
