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…

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…

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: Talia

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…

Haven Series: Zazi

Haven Series: Zazi

Alex wanted to take the photographs in my neighbourhood. We walked around the streets of Grey Lynn and chose locations or surroundings that felt very natural, familiar and ‘local’. We were outside, only using the light from the sun and the breeze of the wind as our guide. There are…

Undone Zodiac: Aries

Undone Zodiac: Aries

Aries March 21 – April 19 Aries is a cardinal fire sign, ruled by Mars – the planet of action, named after the Roman god of war. As the first sign in the zodiac, the presence of Aries almost always marks the beginning of something energetic and turbulent. They are…

Haven Series: Pepa

Haven Series: Pepa

The shoot was at Junk and Disorderly, a massive warehouse full of vintage stuff like nice old furniture, heaps of cool paintings and cute lil’ knick-knacks everywhere. It felt different from studio shoots and location shoots outside in gardens etc because it was actually in a store while people were there…

Undone’s Week In Things

Undone’s Week In Things

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Even just looking at this little book makes me feel calmer. I ordered the smaller hardcover version from Book Depository as I preferred it to the bigger but flimsier version paperback (which also doesn’t have the pretty watercolour cover) I’ve seen in stores here, and…
