Nerida is wearing a beautifully simple but eye-catching outfit by Manning Cartell. Something that was really important to Nerida was that fact that the clothing she wears are Ethical Clothing Australia accredited.

ALEX - I spent the last week on a work trip in Seeheim, a small German town on the outskirts of Frankfurt with an awesome group of people from around the globe - London, Beirut, Tunis, Shanghai, Ghana, Vienna, New York, Indonesia and Washington. It was so interesting to me how we all interpreted and approached the issues we were talking about totally differently and to again realize how important understanding someone's cultural background is when dealing with different situations. Moral of the story? We all have room to be a little bit more understanding.
P.S. Why does NZ have to be so far away from Europe?!

CHIN - I baked these earlier this week. It's a pretty big deal because the last time I made biscuits was when i was 8 or 9. I used full fat butter, full fat sugar and full fat chocolate. Even though I accidently used baking powder instead of baking soda (an amateur mistake, I know), the result was a perfectly delicious cookie that was chewy and chocolatey.

DANNY - We went to The Capital this week, a pop-up city showcasing the best of Wellington. Highlights included catching up with our favourite Six Barrel Soda, super gimlets courtesy of Hawthorn Lounge featuring local Lighthouse gin, awesome burgers by Grill Meats Beer and Wellington Chocolate Factory's delicious and beautifully packaged chocolate. Also, bonus points for a pretty, pop-up invitation.

MINO - Continuing with theme of the menswear shows in Europe, here are a couple of other looks that I love, the first from Dolce & Gabanna, inspired by Spanish flamenco dancer's polka dots and the second by Carven, which I love the boldness and simplicity of.

We loved the intricate neckline of Lisa's Minette Shuen dress. The leather of her awesome bag by M2Malletier and studded jacket by Zara added a bit of toughness. She finished off her outfit with simple gold accessories including a Balenciaga bracelet and headband, and a ring by YSL. Her shoes were by Senso.

Kris' simple black outfit included texture to create interest. We liked the way the mesh top played off the Damier pattern Louis Vuitton tote. Patent leather chelsea boots by Prada added a bit of shine. The sunglasses were by Saxony and cute 'H' earring by Hermès.

ALEX - I'm currently in Venice and all I can say is WOW! It is stunning! I spent the day wandering through the canals, climbing a million bridges, catching the Vaporetti (water buses) around the island and sitting and enjoying not having to do anything but soak in the sun and everything around me with a Spritz Veneziano in my hand. And I get to do it all over again tomorrow! P.S. Sorry about the phone pic - I forgot to bring the camera cord with me!

CHIN - I managed to find time this week to pop into Ciel PR's showroom. I saw this and pretty much forgot to look at everything else. The Panopticon bucket bag by Blue Blank features chunky tassels and a sunburst eye design. Everything looks better with sunbursts right? It's available at Children of Vision in Auckland, The Service Depot in Wellington and Company Store in Dunedin.

DANNY - My mum's in the process of a huge garage clean out and yesterday I got an ultimatum to pick up all the toys I'd almost forgotten about before they got dumped. So I did. Now my hallway is looking pretty awesome and I get to put off being a grown up for even longer. Plus it's a rainy day today so playtime!

MINO - With the Spring 2015 menswear shows currently happening in Europe at the moment, I have been excitedly scrolling through the latest collections on and a standout for me so far was the collection by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Here are some photos (via …..) of some of my favourite looks.

Following on from yesterday's post on Tash, this is Elle from TheyAllHateUs looking equally stunning in H&M paired with a vintage belt.

We really liked Tash's classic ensemble including this striped top and black pant combo by Bassike. Her coat is from Zara and her bag is by Chanel. Tash runs the popular website TheyAllHateUs with her bestie Elle who will be up on the blog tomorrow.

ALEX - So this week I have been on a bit of a health kick (and I thought I better post about it as it usually only lasts about a week!) Whenever this happens, I start looking for new gym gear which in my opinion always makes the gym a bit more interesting. I found these awesome shoes on I quite like these too.

CHIN - So I watched another Eighties movie this week. This time it was Ruthless People, starring Bette Midler and Danny DeVito. The highlight for me was this insane Memphis style set.

DANNY - I often go through really bad spells of not reading anything. To shake myself out of it I recently rediscovered the library and I've been working my way through a heap of books over the last couple of months. The last one was a biography of Cleopatra which was pretty insane. Up now is The Disaster Artist, chronicling Greg Sestero's experience filming cult movie, The Room. If you've seen The Room, often described as the worst movie ever made, you'll understand the potential for hilarity in this 'making of'. It's more of an insight into the mind of The Room's producer/director/writer/star Tommy Wiseau than anything else, so essentially reads as a surrealist comedy. If you haven't seen The Room, it occasionally screens at smaller places like The Academy. It's worth going to see it at the movies to really get into the atmosphere - plus you're usually given free plastic spoons which will make sense at the time.

MINO - This week I received these awesome House of Holland sunnies. Yes, it is Winter but how good is the sunny weather we have been having so far in Auckland this Winter (apart from that full on storm we had at the beginning of the week this is…that was crazy…) These are pretty cool too.
