bits & pieces
Here’s a round up of things I’ve been loving this week, and things you should get along to:
ONE FIFTY EXHIBITION:
This ONE FIFTY exhibition is such a cool idea, make sure you get there on Saturday and grab yourself a very affordable piece of art from the world renowned graffiti crew TMD – but you gotta be quick, they’re only letting in the first 150 people. Read below for more details :
“Top local artists (and members of world-renown graffiti crew TMD) Askew One, Elliot Francis Stewart (Deus) and Gary Silipa (Ryze) are holding a trio-exhibition that takes the ʻONE FIFTYʼ title to the extreme. The exhibition theme runs exclusively around the number ONE FIFTY. There will be ONE FIFTY pieces of art exhibited; each piece will be ONE FIFTYmm x ONE FIFTYmm; each item costs ONE FIFTY dollars; doors open at ONE FIFTY pm on Saturday 15 September at ONE FIFTY four, Ponsonby Rd, Auckland; exhibition runs for ONE FIFTY minutes (end time 4.20pm); and only the first ONE FIFTY entrants will be allowed through the door! There will also be ONE FIFTY beers and ONE FIFTY glasses of wine for guests, plus ONE FIFTY mini chocolate cupcakes (available for ONE FIFTY [$1.50] each).”
Julia & Libby:
I’m really loving the website of sisters Julia & Libby. There’s a lot of really helpful and informative tips on healthy living, packed full of information about what foods are good for you, and why, with simple recipes for meals and treats. I know health stuff can often be a bit intimidating, I’m usually one of those people who gets easily turned off by that sort of thing – but I think the girls do it in a way that’s really accessible and easy to get your head around. I went out immediately and bought the ingredients for their Mushroom Quinoa Salad, and had it for dinner and lunch. Here’s a picture of mine below, it’s nowhere near as pretty looking as theirs is, but it was yum:
Moustache Milk & Cookie Bar :
Auckland’s first Milk & Cookie Bar opens at 12 Wellesley Street, this Friday, at 7 am (i.e TOMORROW!! SHALL WE GO?!?!??!!!) And as you can see, I’m quite excited. There’s a really cool article about Moustache over at Denizen – or you can check out their own website and facebook page. Can you imagine all the amazing instagram pics we’re going to get out of this place? lulz. But actuals. And factuals.
Emu Sheepskin Boots:
I got sent these Emu sheepskin boots about a week ago, and seriously, they are the best things to have happened to my feet. They are so freaking comfy. I wish it was socially acceptable to leave the house in them, because I would never take them off. Instead, the first thing I do when I come home is take my shoes off and pop these babies on. Feet heaven.
Lani Says on IAMTV:
Oh hey, it’s ME, on the youtubes. I already shared this on my facebook page, but they’ve now uploaded just my part on youtube so have a watch if you want to learn a little more about me and a behind the scenes look at NZ Fashion Week 2o12.
