Major fun time frenzy happening right now...

Heaven - just booked my tickets for the Warren Miller film that's coming to the Embassy next next Sunday. YEOW! Got to looking at his site and am so excited for wintry bliss now - not rainy, windy Wellington styles but crisp, frozen, powdery, mulled-winey mountain styles. Wanaka trip - locked in. Epic movie - locked in. Photos from Warren Miller site - excitment-frenzy.

(In my head I am imagining that NZ looks like this in winter - then in my head I am laughing really hard at how wrong I am. Sigh)

Also along the lines of old snowy face is my friends new site - check it out. Loving the tweet stalking on the right hand side as well....creepy stalker (me) - it's my specialty.

oh and p.s. Sex and the City last night. Also Epic. Went in expecting nothing in terms of story line and everything in terms of extravagance and rediculousness that is off the hook and I wasn't let down. Pre-show macaroons? Nice touch. Entire row of drunk forty year olds in front of us? Fab. The girlfriends who dragged their boyfriends? a) shame on you b) he is probably gay.

oh and p.p.s checked out the 'Sexy Bitches' exhibition at Manky Chops last night. A must see - Sexy Bitches indeed! I bought boyfriend one a week or so ago so will post a pic when it's all framed up.

Long weekend is my friend.

I'm not a huge fan of thick, all covering, mask-like foundation so for years now have had a crush on Revlons' Skinlights Face Illuminator. Depsite it being the "BEST...ILLUMINATOR...EVER" made (quoting the Grazia article where I made this discovery) it stopped being made at all a couple of years ago. Since then I have only managed to find it in a small el cheapo beauty store (selling the likes of $3 eyeshadow) at the mall in Lower Hutt but even their supplies have dried up - as has my last bottle. After settling on a less than ideal back up plan from the Body Shop I was so excited to discover that they have re-launched my fav! It's been re-named Revlon Age Defying Spa Face Illuminator and I have to say I'm not a huge fan of the new, supermarket-friendly, packaging. From this...

to this...

...or the fact that it now has 'Age Defying' splashed across the front.But 'spa'? Yes please! And I AM intrigued by the fact it now has a brush attached for application. Bring on pay day - I'm buying up a ten year supply just incase.

From The Inspired Collection, this piece (The Embassador) is part of their Awards Collection. I can't even poinpoint what part I love the most - the matte gold? The crest? The tough leather stiching and stud detailing or the wax seal/stamp on the tag? The rest of their standard pieces are equally as smokin and sit on the site next to a sketch of whatever it was that inspired that ring. Want it? TICK!


Wowza - was just introduced to this by a workmate and I'm loving it. Janelles (we're on a first name basis) dance moves can only be described as squiggly and some how she pulls of manly attire throughout the whole video without looking even a tince manly -  I'd look more like a killer whale I think. Watch it!

Only 7 more sleeps until Florence tickets go on sale...arrrrrr! I can't sleep already! Work productivity levels today: 1%. Time at work spent day dreaming about the amazingness of a Florence concert: 99%.

you hit me once

i hit you back

you gave a kick

i gave a slap

you smashed a plate over my head

then i set fire to our bed


So sit back and watch the bed burn

I found a new love child last week. The after party for the CAANZ Media awards had to levels - on level one glamourous career ladder climbers hustled for a photo at the MTV photo area. On level two, hidden in the corner on level two was a photo booth that my friend and I found before the rest of the crowd did and whammo - obsessed (fifteen photo shoots later).

Apparently you can hire these for weddings - one for the bride and groom, one for the guest. Ideal. Personally I am getting one for my lounge. I can hear you asking 'wow you guys look hot - how'd you get such smoking makeup?' (haha) - more on that soon....

Dion Lee - love the colour more than anything else.

The Leica D-lux 4 - I would die for this (p.s. this is a lie).

Above: Safari version. arrrrr

And I finally got these Chaos and Harmony skyscrapers - need to learn to walk in them. Note to self: camera and shoes match. Ideal.

And if someone bought me the new new new Lonely Hearts SS 10/11(even though it's only at sneak peak status) I wouldn't complain.

Oh and this is the business -ALFFFFFFFF ...

So I constantly dream of getting over to Japan (for a shopping-snowboarding-artfrenzy hybrid holiday) and cried tears of jealousy when my work mate went over earlier this year. I then got a bit excited when I read that The Satorialist had made it to Japan depsite the chaotic ash cloud sitchy. It was only yesterday that I managed to check out his pics and if you already had a little itch to go to Japan then SHIZAM this will hit that itch out of the park and into urgen-must-get-there-now status. How unfair that he was there and I wasn't but the upside is that I can perve at his pics and day dream up a plan of how I will get there. Little taster below but you have to see the whole lot to appreciate the amazingness.
