It was raining on and off today, quite random, but Auckland (the city in which I reside) is known for haveing 24 seasons in a day.
Town was pretty empty today, I was there at about midday, got a fresh juice at a place where Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin went last year, when they cisited New Zealand, and they loved it.
Soon, I am going away for the weekend up north to a beachside batch (old, electricity deprived, holiday home).

Chanel. Crop Top. Ripped cut off denim. White Dr. Martens. I couldn't ask for anything else.

Mary-Kate this photo is so cute and gorgeous, and I just love this accessory - a big black birdcage.

My sister. Top photo, she is just drinking with her friends, wearing a lace bodice and high waisted ripped denim shorts. Above photo she is wearing crop top with Jeanius personalised bleached denim shorts with studs, and a long cross necklace.
Search Jeanius on Facebook and Lookbook. They are a small business group a my old high school here in New Zealand.

Johnny Depp and Tim Burton have done many films together such as Alice in Wonderland, Edward Scissorhands, and Sweeny Todd. A few of my favourite movies of all time.

Maths IS fun, and very educational and gives you time to think as well, like, say, your crush. ;p

wo'Man in the mirror'. Just thought of a creative way to remember Michael Jackson. R.I.P. Beautiful song.

Just a post about things that I currently am loving/find interesting.

Bellagio, Como, Italy. The lake of Como in the background.

Is it wrong to want all of these? Every, single, pair.

Various Collages and stunning photographs
I hope everyone is having a good week and sorry for not posting for a while, had some exams and have just been to see Grease the production at my high school. Last year was my last year at school and they did it the year I left, I really wanted to do Grease. They had all real props and the actors put on amazing accents and were all great singers. I am going to see it tomorrow as I loved it so much.
Below are just some celebrities (models, actresses, TV hosts) with some outfits inspired by them, all made by different people. There are also some photos of New Zealand's beautiful scenery, and a kiddy photo of me.

Leather shorts. I'm saving up. (=

Emma Watson (hellohanna)

Dakota Fanning (Miss-Sweety-Bella AND ivett26)

Alexa Chung (KateParis)

Looks amazing right?

Abbey Lee Kershaw (BlueYarden)
Lake Pukaki

Chanel Iman (TheComi)
Me with my sister. I was feeding one of my boy friend's lambs (boy friend not boyfriend ;p )

Recent purchases within the last few months

  • Faux Fur coat for $65

I am so happy I found it for a good price. It looks similar to these three in legth and colour. I love these 3 coats and photographs that I found on Lookbook, of Cocorosa (first photo) and Charly Green (2nd and 3rd photos).

This is the coat which I am wearing with my Marc Jacobs dress, purchased early this year.

  • Topshop black dress with shoulder pads, short sleeves, and, beads and tassles on the shoulders.
I couldn't find an exact photo of it, so I foud dresses that are similar. Sorry. haha. Imagine the beads on the 1st dress, the shoulder pads on the 2nd dress, and the tassles and short sleeves on the 3rd dress and put them all together. =)




  • Louis Vuitton Monogram Graffiti Zippy Wallet - I got a pink one, there is also orange available.

  • Seanna closed toe Clogs from Topshop.

  • Final recent purchase :

Tea PLUS.....

...Feijoas EQUALS ...

New Zealand Designer AND Successful models

Alexandra owen SS 10/11

Real body. Strange right? It's different, that's for sure.
Below, are some looks from the small indoor show.

New Zealand models who are making it big locally and internationally.
I hope, i have no doubt, that each one of these individuals will become rich and famous, more so than they are now. Many of them are from Dunedin, a city in New Zealand near the bottom of the South island, so very close to Antarctica. It gets very cold there. A lot of snow, and once a year it has a fashion week called iD Dunedin Fashion Week, where the runway is in the local train station, and it is one of the longest runways in the world.
Google these girls and guys if you would liek to see more of them.
Usually female models are talked about constantly, so I thought I would recognise and acknowledge the successful male models we have here in New Zealand too.
From left to right : Nicole Clulee, Zippora Seven, Jasper Seven, Dempsey Stewart and Georgia Fowler.
Vincent Paunovic (Vincent and Zippora attended the High School, in Auckland).

Nicole AND Vincent.
Felix Terpstra
Levi Clark
Hal Chesire
Michael Whittaker, who has traveeled and worked in Paris and New York and walked for designers such as Moschino and Bottega Veneta.
Georgia Fowler recently graced the cover of Australian's Harper's Bazaar. One of the first New Zealanders to do so.

My sister and I

We share the same clothes sometimes, well a bit more than sometimes. We are basically the same height and build, even though she is 4 years younger than me. She has grown quickly, she must have my dad's genes. He's tall, my mum is, well, not so tall. Oh, how I wish she was. ;)
Hope everyone had a great weekend, and have an even better week. See you soon. xox

My sister - photos I took of her, while we were on holiday:

  • My sunglasses, on her head. Very unclear. Sorry about that.
  • White knit dress, from Salvation Army with detail around the waist.
  • $2 Grizzly boots, we got from a market.
  • Black fringe top, my sister made.
  • Silky leggings.
  • Brown fringe boots.

  • Dotti skirt
  • Bracelet, worn as an anklet
  • Havaianas flip-flops/jandals.

  • Nike Airs
  • Op shop Blazer - $25
  • Assorted bracelets
  • JeansWest top
  • JayJays denim shorts

Me at school. My tall, pretty, artistic genius, friend, sneakily took this photo of me and my hair.
