FOOD TRUCK GARAGE

I have been friends with Marlon for about four years and food has always been a topic of conversation for us. It started at a party in Dunedin when he asked to raid my pantry. And here we are, four years on, me raiding his wardrobe – standing on the bed, looking at my reflection […]

KNITS, SPLITS & LIFE LESSONS

I had a realisation the other morning. As I raced around the house with a towel on my head; as I teetered on my high heels running into the coffee shop by my house; as I weaved in and out of Auckland traffic on my way to work; as I stared at the job title […]

MILAN MENSWEAR SHOWS SPRING ’16

Oh my. That is the PG version of what escaped my lips as I flicked, open-mouthed, through Tommy Ton’s shots taken outside the Men’s fashion shows in Milan. The subjects of these images made every cell in my body tingle. Boys – take note. This is how it’s done. Check out the full slideshow at […]

FREE LOVE

The 70s are back. And thank god. The 90s had a revival and I just couldn’t get into the swing. But, the 70s…now this is a trend that I will be embracing. Clothes from this era are so much fun. The 60s and 70s saw a social revolution take place. For this reason, it isn’t just […]

TAXI CAB

Image source I meet very interesting people. And they always seem to open up to me with their life stories. Possibly because I listen so hard they think I’m boring a hole in their head with my eyes. I want to soak in every single detail. As I write this to you, it is 1am. […]

CHRISTCHURCH FARMERS MARKET

On my last weekend at home, Manda and I rolled out of bed early and went to the Christchurch Farmers Market at Riccarton Bush. I’m a little embarrassed to say that of the whole eight months I was home in Christchurch, I have been to the market two times….in the final two weeks before I […]

CURRENTLY OBSESSING – SLEEVELESS LEATHER & ITALIAN DREAMS

So this week I have a couple of obsessions. Firstly, I am making googly eyes for sleeveless leather jackets. When I bought my leather jacket it literally changed my life for the better. You know how all too often you buy something and the idea of it was better than the actual having of the […]

HEY AUCKLAND

Photographer: Addeana Husaini Somehow, after a ridiculous amount of driving, I have made it to Auckland safe and sound. Leaving Christchurch was harder than it has ever been before. I’m getting soft in my old(er) age and my priorities are shifting. Close friends and family are the most important thing and leaving them behind left […]

THE YING TO MY YANG

A pretty typical Katie-Manda selfie taken in line for zee club on Saturday. One of us always looks good (usually her), one of us always looks unhinged (usually me). The other day, my bestie and I sat on the beach eating bagels and drinking coffee – talking about nothing and everything as we always do. […]
