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.
