THE WEEK ON THREAD EPISODE 48
My birthday week, woohoo! Here is the latest column for ‘The Week On Thread’ Episode 48, with highlights in pictures of what I’ve been up to lately in the worlds of fashion, beauty, and more…
STARTING THE DAY WITH COFFEE
Good morning! Starting the day with a cup of coffee with DeLonghi PrimaDonna Elite.
Oh my goodness the hugest beautiful bouquet of flowers has arrived for my birthday from Elizabeth Arden! I love them, thankyou.
How gorgeous are these tennis ball and ball boy bottle covers? Champagne Lanson is the official sponsor of Wimbledon. Congratulations Andy Murray and Serena Williams!
RUBY TAKAPUNA OPENS
RUBY held an opening party to celebrate opening the doors of their tenth store on Friday 15th July, at 8 Hurstmere Road in Takapuna. They’ve left the bare brick walls and original flooring, and softened them with feminine blush pink floor-length velvet curtains and a round ottoman seat, and fitted custom brass racks showcasing their stylish accessories. The Takapuna store opens with their Spring 2016 collection, ‘No Drama’. Managing Director, Christine Sharma said, “We are thrilled to be a part of the refreshed Takapuna community and look forward to seeing the area thrive”.

On Wednesday I headed into Ponsonby Road to the We’Ar Clothing store to view their Spring 2016 collection. If you’re interested in fashion that’s ethically-made using sustainable fabrics, you’ll love We’ar Clothing, which uses mostly organic fabrics, and supports small producers with fair practices. Nice work, @wearyoga.

Very interactive with song and dance compared to the craft TV show, in addition to some crafts. Lots of music and cheering. Have had to come home to go on their Facebook page and make crafts.
MAYBELLINE MAKE IT HAPPEN
I was blown away to be invited to take part in the New Zealand Maybelline New York ‘Make It Happen’ video and have a two hour makeover and photo shoot with fashion photographer Garth Badger at Thievery Studio. The Make It Happen initiative will help 6 young New Zealanders follow their career paths with help and mentoring and support and they can apply now.
