Stella, Roma & Jane

I am part of the little family team behind Lucinda Barrett jewellery – the business part. My mum actually designs and hand-makes everything out of our home studio in Ponsonby. Mum’s intention is to empower the wearers of her jewellery. She is all about women supporting women and celebrating friendship. We really…

The Next Meal’s persimmon, tamarillo & black pepper shrub

The Next Meal is Will Bowman and Jane Lyons – two hungry humans based in Auckland who are lovers of real food and are always thinking about the next meal. They recently held an autumn breakfast popup with ceramicist Holly Houston and stylist Jess Hemmings, which included this zingy, spicy,…

Freddie + The Knitter

Freddie + The Knitter

“Today I met one of my knitters. I asked her how old she was when she started knitting and she said she was five years old when she started pulling the sheep’s wool from farm fences and making things on nails. I like her stories, especially because the stories in…

VASE Series

VASE Series

So I made a thing called VASE with my friends Adam Bryce and Lucy Houghton and while the first print run sold out, we just made a very limited number of extras, which are currently being sold by one of our favourite stores in all the world, Simon James, so…

How to foodstagram: Unna Burch, The Forest Cantina

Food instagrams are not only one of the most popular kinds of pics (along with feet in interesting places, plane wings over interesting places and cute animals), they’re also one of the hardest to make perfect. On a quest to get some tips from some of my favourite New Zealand foodstagrammers…

Wild For The Night

For lovers of creativity, fashion and/or wild and wonderful hair, Exhibit, the grand finale event at New Fashion Week this year, is the show for you. We’re quite partial to a spot of hair styling brilliance and could probably listen to the below stylists talk shop all day, but we…

Bittersweetness

Bittersweetness

Bittersweet is an escape to Queenstown with my two best friends. Sweet because the few days were full of mountains, lakes, smiles, secrets, whiskey, wine and The Sherwood. Bitter because it was a goodbye. I’m now halfway across the world. Slow mornings were spent sleeping in, drinking coffee in the…

Haven Series: Nina

Haven Series: Nina

Auckland City is one of my favourite places and one of the locations where we did the shoot (Myers Park) holds quite a few memories for me as I lived right next to it for a little while. The natural, sleepy theme was something different and it was awesome to…

Undone Book Club Review: Lab Girl, Hope Jahren

Undone Book Club Review: Lab Girl, Hope Jahren

In year seven the big science project was ‘Science Badge’. To earn our badge we had to choose from a wide range of scientific subjects and complete activities on that subject. The activities ranged from mediocre (meteorology – record the weather for a week) to complex (energy – build a…

Salon de Cake + Lemon & Lime Cake Recipe

Salon de Cake + Lemon & Lime Cake Recipe

Our new location is not exactly a shop nor a hospitality space. It’s something else. It’s like a girly lounge or parlour. So we’ve decided to call it a ‘Salon de Cake’! The beautiful old French ‘salons’ were where people collaborated together on points of high culture – and that is…

V for Victory

V for Victory

Undone are unashamed advocates of good books and magazines, so were beyond delighted to hear that our fellow creative Adam Bryce was launching a very cool new bookstore – Victory Books – both online and out of Eugenie (one of the most knock-out, forward-thinking, directional fashion boutiques we’ve been to)…

Undone Book Club

Undone Book Club

We’re not ashamed to say we do often judge a book by its cover – though not exclusively – what’s inside is obviously of even more value, but it doesn’t hurt to look good either, right? So it did place a teeny tiny part in how we chose the next…

Haven Series: Sophie

Alex and I shot at Minnehaha Beach in Takapuna, there were heaps of opportunities for photos. It was quite a sunny day, which we were stoked about because it’d been pouring down in the days before. It’s quite a secluded area, it doesn’t have a proper beach access. You can…

Haven Series: Talia

Alex and I shot at my house on the [North] Shore. I’ve lived here for about 10 years and have created so many memories here, so I thought it would be the perfect place to shoot. It’s a place where I feel comfortable and relaxed – and the morning sun streaming through the…

Undone’s Week In Things

Undone’s Week In Things

I’ve been in various beauty editor roles over the last decade, which translates into a lot of product I’ve been sent to try and write about. I’m also not the excitable type. But every so often a delivery still comes that causes even my heart to beat just a little faster, and…

Alexis Arnold: Crystallised Books

Alexis Arnold: Crystallised Books

Have so many ideas and projects on the go just now (see The Mamas for one of the biggest of the bunch) but somehow still managed to spend about an hour looking through photos of the work of Alexis Arnold, who has transformed boxes of discarded books into beautiful sparkling specimens using…
