Summer heralds not only bbq season, but it is also the advent of party season, race season and wedding season. And, much like cooking on the bbq, when getting ready for a big event, the dressing is all important. For the flavour is in the garnishes and the seasonings.

Laughter may be the best medicine but it has also proven to be the perfect accessory!

I took my chances queuing for ‘Tix for twenty’ in the last week of the NZ Festival. After an hour of queuing and freezing my a$$ off lady-luck proved not to be on my side that day. Bitch. However by the time I threw in the towel and admitted defeat I had caught a bad case of Festival Fever.

Everywhere I look around my friends are getting married. I don’t know whether to blame it on ‘the whispers of the trees or the thunder of the seas’ but I have been the happy recipient of many wedding invitations for summer.

Fairy-tales are normally set in a kingdom far far away yet touring around New Zealand right now we have a beast of a fairy-tale resplendent with a castle, a Princess, a Prince, fairies and a magic spell that needs to be broken. The Sleeping Beauty
is quite unlike any fairy story stage adaptation that I have ever seen. Judging by the ‘ohhhs” and “ahhhhs’ coming from the audience on opening night, the public agree.

Tonight’s pre-loved meets high fashion show Foxy at the Roxy, put the spotlight on timeless gems that had been sourced from the treasure troves of our regions 5 Mary Potter Stores. The vintage goodies were shown alongside Mandatory & Starfish and the iconic Wellington label Ashley Fogel. The Roxy had a capacity crowd who were so enthusiastic that they literally bought the dress off my back.

Wellington Cup Day is just around the corner and I can't wait! The whole day is a smorgasbord of fun and excitement and during my 13 or so years attending I've enjoyed it every which way but loose. From the members stand, from inside a corporate tent, as a picnicker, as an entrant and winner and judge of Fashion in the Field and as a betting punter. However you chose to spend your day, it is not to be missed and much like WOW, is one of Wellingtons annual events that just gets better every year. Wellington always, without fail, puts on the most perfect scorcher of a day and makes sunscreen the most important and in-demand fashion accessory for everyone!

After reading the quote at the beginning of the Project Born programme from Neonatal Trust NZ CEO Michael Meads “The older you get the more life accelerates”, I am that little bit more grateful to be alive and to have my life accelerate especially last night because I was present at the inaugural Project Born event. An event not to be missed. I think that everyone who attend last night will enjoy being able to say “I was there at the very first one.”
