Huffer Winter 14 Campaign




Mmm-kay so I've just realised I'm obsessed with the super chill chick in the new Huffer campaign. She has the haircut I want and clearly doesn't give a fuq. I'm probably a little bias but I am actually a huge fan of a lot of the ladies gear they have coming out for winter. That wool peacoat motorcycle jacket number, in fact all of the jackets. It's all simple, easy, wearable just how I like it. 
Here is a little spiel about the range and some more pics of my new fave girl...

Rolla's


Jeans // Westcoast in Bondi Blue

Finding a good pair of jeans is not an easy task. There are so many things you need to take into consideration, the length, cut, rise, material, colour, price... the list goes on. But fear not because I think I may have found the answer to our prayers!
Rollas is an awesome label from Melbourne, Australia. I would probably describe their stuff as the perfect mix of grungy rocker and casual beachy but they keep it super simple and classic. The jeans are super comfy with just enough stretch. A great length too sitting right on the ankle.
But not only their jeans are great. I love the 'Washed Silk Tank', the colour is a nice off white and the material a beautiful soft silk. It looks perfect tucked into jeans. 
My favourite piece has to be the 'Rolla's Trench', I wear it pretty much everyday. I can just chuck it on over whatever and it pulls my outfit together nicely. 
These are classic pieces that will wear well. Great for wearing during the day or out at night.
Now it's getting colder and you're going to need a good pair of jeans for winter, so I reckon go try some of these babies on and see the awesomeness for yourself. Maybe grab a cute top while you're there.

Adidas & Bedwin and the Heartbreakers




Adidas has done another collaboration with Tokyo's BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS to bring another fresh take on sportswear for Spring Summer 2014.
Unfortunately it's only for the guys but I loved it so much I thought I'd post about it anyway.

Winter Coats


Ruby // Dreamer Coat 
This coat you could dress up or down. The sleeves are slightly batwinged and the fabric is an awesome texture and colour - grey/black easy to match with anything.

We're well into Autumn now and it's getting pretty chilly. I know lots of people are thinking about investing in a good coat for the upcoming winter and there are heaps of awesome jackets available at the moment. I know I've certainly had my eye on a few. 
A good coat is so important. You can just chuck on a coat with a tee and jeans and look freakin' fab, so it's worth spending the money and getting something good. 
It wasn't easy but I managed to narrow it down to my top 7 favourite coats available at the moment. I tried them on and got James to take some sweet pics.
So check it out...

Miguel - Simplethings




Okay so I think I've listened to this song at least 43 times today and I'm still not sick of it.
I discovered it when it played at the end of a recent Girls episode. It was perfect timing too because I discovered it just before I went to Bruno Mars on Sunday and Miguel opened for him!! He was amazing. V good dance moves.
The other song I love of his is this acoustic Spotify sessions version of 'Sure Thing' but I'm pretty sure you can only listen to that on Spotify.
I love Miguel he's amazing.

Photo Diaries: The Summer Holidays Edit


Pam reading at the bach in Waihi

It has been way too long since I've done one of these posts. I felt like I needed to. Partly because I haven't really posted anything in ages and also because I think the blog needs some posts that aren't just about clothes. You know, something a little more personal otherwise it gets a bit dry.

So I decided to do a bit of a round up of my summer and I chose some of my favorite photos taken over the last few months.

I had an awesome summer.
Uni break is pretty long and I didn't go overseas or anything so I had a good amount of proper time-off in Auckland which was great.
I actually began to really appreciate how lucky I am to live where I do. I have everything I want, all the people and places, but it's also so close to so many beautiful surf beaches.
Getting back into surfing has been a big part of this summer. Tim drags me out there and I glad he does otherwise I probably wouldn't have done it at all.
The highlight of the summer had to be going down to the McDonald family's bach. They are my closest family friends. I've been going there almost every year since I was a kid. It's the most beautiful,  old, quintessential kiwi bach with a big deck and caravans out the back. This year I took Evan down with me when he came to visit and he was obsessed.
Spent time with friends and family, went to some great concerts and just relaaaaxed.
That pretty much sums it up. A perfs, cheesy, NZ summer and damn it was good.

Here are some photos starting from way back in November at my birthday dinner...

Nike She Runs Auckland



Tonight I ran 3km! I'm pretty happy with myself because I never normally run so I thought I would die and I am 100% still alive right now.
So tonight was the first night of the six week training program for Nike She Runs Auckland.
Basically it's on Monday nights starting at 5:30pm. It's totally free you just show up at Nathan club which is right by Nike Britomart and the girls get everyone amped up and then you head off in a big pack.
I would never normally just go for a run but that's why this is so perfect! It's so motivating having this to go to and running with other people, plus there are milestones and rewards to help motivate you too!
In case you were worried about being too slow don't be. There are pacers so unfit people like me can go at a slower pace and there are plenty of other girls that aren't experienced runners either so you're not way at the back on my own or anything.
There are also free training sessions after the run so you can build up your strength which also helps with your running (you might even see me up on stage looking extremely unco for one of them).

At the end we have the big 10km run which is an awesome goal to work towards plus 2 of our runners get to go to Sydney for the 10km run there! To get in the draw for that you just need to show up.

It's so much fun, whether you're an experienced runner or far from it (like me). Trust me give it a go and you will surprise yourself.
I feel great after my first run and can't wait till next week.
So come along girls and come say hi to me if you do! See you there! xx

Tyla and I after our run. Bring a buddy along if you can!
