If you’re in Christchurch for the long weekend, check out LUXCITY, the opening event for the Festival of Transitional Architecture (FESTA) happening tonight (Saturday 20th October). Experience the city lit up by installations created from architecture and design students across the country.
Look out for my sister’s piece Altitude designed by Unitec Architecture students:
Stolen Girlfriends Club
SGC. What a joke. These boys were not the most aspirational speakers of the day, but I DID like their originality with this venue for their fashion show
They also deserve credit for their collaboration with artist Karl Maughan
It’s been two weeks since Semi Permanent. For two weeks i’ve been itching to share with you: my experience, but instead i’ve been slaving on the computer – trying to meet brief deadlines… But now….
DA, DA, DUM…
THE TIME HAS COME.
Enough drama? I hope so, because the first thing I am going to share is the highlights from the amazing Florian Schmitt’s story telling workshop.
Transmedia Storytelling: Past, Present and Future, Hi-Res!

Held in Shed 10 on Sunday 25th March, Cycle Style was a cute unique event combining fashion + bikes.
What an event!
The concept of Design Day is a simple recipe for success.
Guests are whisked away in taxis from location to location while being inspired through design in all forms.
The day started off nicely with a complimentary coffee at Mini Garage in Ponsonby. There, Mini promoted their Coupe and Roadster cars with large globes in appropriate theming, and photo booths.
Douglas + Bec (Workroom Design) put on a fantastic show; A stylish mini fair with yummy food from Cool Food, the best Riesling I’ve tasted yet (Jules Taylor), trendy gifts for sale, and had models poised in the workroom.
Another favourite of mine was Fisher and Paykel’s Social Kitchen – an experimentation of food and people’s relationship with it. The Cloud was filled with aromas and glimpses of bluff oysters, balsamic mushrooms with aoili, cherry shaved ice, and melted chocolate on mandarin/passionfruit and five spice biscuits.
Other highlights included the tub full of M&Ms at Kohler
The HP – Unitec installation
Kathryn Wilson’s Wonderland theming
And last but not least, the jelly shots!
The Color Run
What a great idea – be rewarded with (edible) colour, each kilometre of the way!
This is something I have to put on my bucket list now – San Fran would be my pick! Or perhaps I could bring this to N.Z. Who would be keen to participate?!

Red NSE Day is happening today – Friday 15th July!
Do something silly for a serious cause.
Last year I was involved with this fantastic campaign – collecting donations in exchange for red noses (and stickers, and badges).
I had a ball seeing all types of people with their red nose on in support of Cure Kids (and confused tourists!).
A number of cafes get involved, Giapo, Paper Plus, Shell, and Take Note.
This year they also have an Red Nose Day iPhone App – search for “Red Nose Day” in the iPhone App Store, and have brought back the song!
I hope that you support Cure Kids this year, because the 20,000 children living with life-threatening diseases need you. On a fun note, look at these cool cupcakes made in the UK for their red nose day!
Be driven in the comfort of a nice, brand new car around nine galleries in the Auckland central region.
Held last Wednesday (1st June) at Caffe Massimo was A Community Cafe, managed by North Shore YouthworX Director Amanda Judd and supported by Regeneration and Apple Seed. A Community Cafe was a night of complete inspiration and from such a simple concept: 8 speakers, 8 minutes each, followed by networking.
