February 7, 2016

Meet the Jones Girls. A hand made Kiwi leather goods label which is young but incredibly cool. With a high regard for quality these sisters design for the modern girl who wants the best of both worlds with The Jones Girls take on these classic bags. Check out the Poppy Bucket bag and the Georgie Petite in Forest Green, love.

I must admit I have found a few incredible brands through Instagram and it makes it much more exciting when they are based in our homeland of New Zealand (so good to support one another). One of my latest finds is Kiwi beauty brand Pique. I was lucky enough to ask Pique a few quick questions and discovered that Pique is much much more than just a scrub, a philosophy and a way of life.
The multipurpose scrub or mask depending on your mood or skin requirements contains raw Manuka honey, Organic Cinnamon and Organic Maracuja oil, all picked for their unique qualities. While the manuka honey is anti-bacterial the cinnamon works on tightening pores (a must for me), drawing out impurities and gives the scrub that texture to buffer the skin and last but not least the Organic cold pressed Maracuja oil gives your skin much needed moisture with its abundant array of antioxidants while being anti-inflammatory, even shown to stimulate collagen synthesis (sounds good to me!) This eatable (yes you can eat it) product works on all skin types especially breakout-prone skin.

So many cool girl pieces in this edit. Inspired by raw hem lines, rips and all things shiny. With a bit of G.A, Stella, Zoe and Kym by your side. This one is for the girls by the girls.



Lonely girls project

May 27, 2015


The Lonely girls project by Lonely Hearts is as beautiful as it is real. I have always admired Lonely Hearts and its ability to go against the grain, producing beautiful pieces for real woman. Sticking to what they know (no padding or g-strings) and never giving in to trends.



Deadly Ponies

April 10, 2015


It is incredible what talent lays within New Zealand and its people. Deadly Ponies is not a new brand, having been around for some time, but it is one which has established its self in a modern market of luxury. With a quality matched by the likes of Louis Vuitton, yet still edgy and young.
Their latest Winter 2015 range, Pompernickel, is inspired by 18th century France – can you tell? Always one to play with a bit of quirk… With burgundy hues and pastel pinks and that never ending leopard obsession (not complaining, I love it) set against the 18th century backdrop and macaroons piled atop. It is good to live a life less serious and Deadly Ponies nails it, I admit, with some seriously good looking leather.
