Silo (1 of 1).jpg

We are coming into the festival season, and the first on my list is ...!

So at new years, all I ever want to do is dance to live music in the warm evening air! SO this year I'm going to WonderGarden down at Silo Park.

This year line up is a great collection of Kiwi Musicians.
I'm Most looking forward to seeing ...

I remember seeing Chelsea perform over the years but as 'Watercolours' at events like Huffer and RUBY, that is when I fell for her sound and passion. Her piece 'Life of the party' is on pretty much all my playlists.

This will be UMO's only North island show this Summer. I saw these guys live at the Saint James, and it was just mesmerising, you can't miss them! So get your dancing shoes on. 
 

I have adored LESURE's album and single 'Got it Bad'
but I've not yet seen LEISURE perform, so I'm pretty excited to see them. 

The first time I saw Nadia Reid was while I was shooting at the 2016 Laneways. I was milling around between acts when from around the corner I heard 'Call The Days As They Were Known', I've followed Nadia's journey since. I'm Lucky enough to see her and photograph her again this new year.

AUT Rookie 2017


I loved this Years Rookie AUT Graduate runway show! I adored the use of colour and textiles!  
Here are my photos of my favourite pieces from this year's graduates. I look forward to seeing what they do in the future.

Seamless Presents...


I went to The Turning Fork the other night to see a Seamless gig. I went having seen and heard Openside and Altered Blondes in the past. But it was my first time hearing Foley, and I fell in love! I've been playing their new single 'Settle' on repeat! I hadn't seen, Abdul Kay before either and I loved him! He was great with the crowd and very funny, I loved his set. Check out his new single. As for Altered Blondes, it's always loud and grungy just how I like it! And for Openside, just the way they can amp a crowd up and have them all singing every lyric to there songs! The passion that all these bands have, I can't wait to see the places they all will go!

Company of Strangers Nails


JoJo Ross: Surrealism Jacket and Daydream Rib Top. 

I’m a sucker for anything music related, so when Company of Strangers brought out their new nail collection named after songs and artist they listen too in the store, I just had to try it! With inspiration from Bowie, to Nirvana, The Cult and others. So I decided to do a little shoot with model Cait from The Others Agency and Beverly Lim on Make-up! 
My favourite shade would have to be Major Tom inspired by Bowie.
The Coverage of these polishes are fantastic; they are so pigmented and have a great long wear life. 

So here are some shots of my favourite shades......
