When H&M confirmed back in April this year their collaboration with Italian fashion brand Moschino (TV), our style director Louise Hilsz could not wait for it to hit stores. In fact, she has been fizzing about it ever since. The announcement came via an Instagram live call from Gigi Hadid to the designer, Jeremy Scott at Coachella earlier this year. With both the model and designer wearing creations from the collection, we were even more excited to shop the range. Here's a tiny taste of what to expect. The full collection is in store November 8. Be quick it will not stay on the racks for long.


The joys of a bottomless brunch. What’s not to love about brunch with friends? When a delicious menu is made better by a mid-morning glass of bubbles - or three, we can't say no. If you haven’t experienced a bottomless brunch this is the time of the year to start. With endless cocktails, bubbles or our favourite rosé on offer, Auckland’s turning it on right now. Including The Lula Inn on Princes Wharf, Tom Tom Bar & Eatery in Freemans Bay, Wu & You in Mt. Eden village, Teddy’s and Mr TOMS on Ponsonby Road. Get the girls together and take some time out to enjoy a lazy afternoon of culinary delights and a little tipple.


For the next eight weeks, we will be helping you cross off your Christmas gift list with the very best presents for your BFF, sister, mum, and man. We have the latest in home décor, fashion, beauty and more. The best gift guides will be live each week for a fun and stress-free festive season. Stay tuned.


Back by popular demand, NZ Sculpture OnShore, has returned for an extended three-week exhibition from November 3-18. Walk the stunning Devonport clifftop and view 100 sculptures by artists from across Aotearoa. This year the lineup includes Sally Tagg, James Wright, and Dion Hitchens to name a few. And while you're soaking up the stunning art and some sunshine you can feel good knowing NZ Sculpture OnShore is one of the largest supporters of Women’s Refuge and has donated over $1.7 million since the event began - for that reason alone we are keen to support such a glorious event.
The exhibition begins at Fort Takapuna, overlooking Narrow Neck beach in Devonport. Open 10am-5pm daily, ticket prices for adults $20, children $5 and a family pass $45.
