I met with a potential new client today. She wants a make-over, a revive, a lift. We talked about her goals, her weight loss and more importantly her self esteem. I asked her about these things because while most of my clients book me because they want to look better, little do they know the work I do is not merely about appearance. It goes much deeper than that.
That got me thinking about what I’d like to give Kiwi women as a gift for Christmas:
The gift of abundant self esteem.

Happy first day of Spring dear readers. Time to stop and smell the daphne, jasmine, jonquils and freesias because all eyes might be focused on sports fields while the Rugby World Cup is in play, however this season fashion is derived from another kind of field, a field where all black doesn’t stand a chance.
Directly inspired by Mother Nature herself, fun flirty florals are filling the stores for spring/summer 2011/12 and what better way to herald the changing of the seasons than with a profusion of colourful blossoms cascading from your wardrobe?

Last night I was one of the lucky who got to see the WOW before the masses descend on the show. We were treated to the full dress rehearsal and it was a delicious indulgence from the appetiser, through the main course, right through to the dessert. (In fact I’d have liked a double helping of that pav!) YUM!
(I’m not planning on putting any major spoilers in this post so read on with confidence.)

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.

I met up with a couple of Welly fashionista ex-pats last night who have just had a quick trip around NZ. They confirmed for me Wellington’s status as The Style Capital. This is not about bias as Mickey and Ra of MisteR fame don’t live here anymore. It is simply an observation.

Tonight, thanks to ZM’s New Hot Guy and his gorgeous little Chihuahua puppy Priest I got to see the preview screening of Bridesmaids. I have been a Bridesmaid myself twice, so I know the potential pitfalls and pandemonium that can befall the Bridesmaid and indeed the whole Wedding party. I have seen it all: tantrums, family in-fighting, budget blowouts and psychotic jealous sisters.

Driving home tonight this awesome rock anthem from the glam rock band Europe was on the radio. I don’t know that 'The Final Countdown' would be on Catherine and Williams’s playlist tonight but I thought it was the perfect tune to listen to in the lead up to tomorrow’s big event.

I have moved through feeling helpless and hopeless about the Christchurch earthquake, today I feel excited and motivated because I have had an idea of how I can help, it has come to fruition thanks to the generous support of many many people and I hope to see you there.

Move over Baby....I have just had the time of my life. I have been working deep in the bowels of the Opera House as a dresser of Drag Queens. Hold up - What do you call a group of Drag Queens? A gaggle? A herd? A flock? A gleam would be appropriate (with all the sequins..). well, I was backstage with my flock of Drag Queens, preening, ohhing ahhing and not only was I witness to their mystical metamorphosis but I ended up being a mine of information, tips and tricks for them.
