What would you say if I told you that for a morning you could spend time with Patty Huntington, Murray Bevan, Rae Begley, Marc Moore and Dan Gosling?
The names on this panel are Australasian fashion royalty. Patty Huntington especially is one of my all time fashion idols, as a journo so fierce and on topic. Murray Bevan (who I not-so-secretly think is one of the most good looking faces behind the NZ fashion industry) is the owner of fashion PR firm Showroom 22 and has an air of excellence about him that I find incredibly inspiring. The ethos behind Rae Begley's Australian PR firm Little Hero is fun and intuitive - a lesson many aspiring fashion related brands could learn from! Marc Moore and Dan Gossling need no introduction as the co founders of Stolen Girlfriends Club, the badass fashion forward label born in Aotearoa.

"Ruby’s character is based on a fantastical old world female goddess, and the interweaving images, drawn from the natural world, echo her attempts to isolate and protect herself.”
"So far the reaction to Porcupine has been really cool. I didn't know what to expect, but some new radio stations have been keen to play it like George FM and even ZM which has never happened before in my musical journey!
Without further ado, check out Porcupine below:And people have been excited by the clip; the best reaction was when I played it to my brother and he freaked out at all the animation. I was really lucky to work on the clip with some very talented friends, everyone worked really hard and it's come together perfectly - from you making my incredible show-stopping dress to Ralph nailing all the animation... I'm so happy with it and think it conveys the dark, prickly meaning of the song really well."
I am beyond impressed with the final product!

I was super lucky this morning to be picked up by an Audi driver courtesy of M.A.C and whisked off to a one on one

Botany store to preview their holiday collection entitled "Glitter and

And guess who is one of the contestants? Our very own Amber D from New Zealand!
"The M.A.C Halloween Face Off was quite possibly one of the most terrifying experiences of my life (fitting for Halloween I’m sure)! We didn’t know what was going to happen from minute to minute… nor what Snooki was going to do to us next! So it was absolutely a laugh and cry a minute, every minute. Snooki definitely kept us on our toes and it was exhilarating not knowing what on earth would happen next. She really is something else… I’ve never seen shoes so blinged-out in my life… total madness!"

“The M·A·C AIDS Fund has raised $224 million to date. Go out and buy a lipstick for your girlfriend, your boyfriend, your mom or your sister - $26 million to go, little monsters!”
"The M·A·C AIDS Fund, the heart and soul of M·A·C Cosmetics, was established in 1994 to support men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS globally. MAF is a pioneer in HIV/AIDS funding, providing financial support to organizations working with underserved regions and populations. As the largest corporate non-pharmaceutical giver in the arena, MAF is committed to addressing the link between poverty and HIV/AIDS by supporting diverse organizations around the world that provide a wide range of services to people living with HIV/AIDS. To date, MAF has raised $224 million (U.S.) exclusively through the sale of M·A·C’s VIVA GLAM Lipstick and Lipglass, donating 100 percent of the sale price to fight HIV/AIDS."I am constantly inspired by creative genius and lived expression of deep devotion. Big hi five to M.A.C, Mother Monster, Nicola Formichetti and little monsters everywhere who are looking pretty while making some moolah to bring life giving medicine and supportive services to those living with AIDS.

"A concept based on Sacred Geometry, the structural basis of everything that exists in the Universe, such as symbols representing Earth, Water, Air, Fire, Spirit, Consciousness, Balance, Energy, Love, Light, specific geometric shapes that support energy which is a manifestation of Creation... also called MERKABA.
The mere fact that people include these symbols, shapes, patterns and colors in their environment, life, home, even on their clothes, generates a positive and high level vibration that without notifying it awakens the consciousness of everyone around, helping us to rediscover our origin."
I need one of these uber cute feather garlands! I have been told if one of these is strung across your desk productivity and good energy will flow :-)
Also on my list of must haves is one of these gorgeous dream catchers. I remember having many pretty dream catchers hanging in my bedroom window as a child. Pretty purple and white feathers... *sigh*!
