Because it’s a beautiful summer day here in Auckland and it put us in a painterly floral frame of mind… x All paintings by Karl Maughan.

Broadbean, Goat Cheese & Cashew Dip

Broadbean, Goat Cheese & Cashew Dip

I’m part of the team at Golden Dawn in Auckland. A really fun, charming neighbourhood bar serving natural wines and delicious rustic food. I helped open it and used to run the place in my pre-baby life. Though my life has changed completely in the last year and a half…

The Amazing Adventures Of Bonnie & Belle

The Amazing Adventures Of Bonnie & Belle

Love love love Surface Too Deep’s Summer 13/14 collection, and their super fun campaign shots. Pared back to just three striking, unique prints plus essential black, and cut in a pick n mix of cute, flattering shapes, it’s still very hard to make a decision… (I didn’t, I went with…

Holiday Reading: Yasmine Ganley

Holiday Reading: Yasmine Ganley

Summer to me means getting out of the city, which means plenty of road trips and plenty of road trip-tunes. I love being on the road, somewhere between destination A and B: passing fields of crops, iconic farmland and vast oceans, all while listening to your ultimate playlist. A few…

Lily

Lily

My name is Connie McDonald. I’m a 19 year old from Dunedin. I’m fascinated by life, every second of it. To document it, I use photography, poetry, short stories and doodles. I used to babysit Lily. We’re both ginger-haired, excitable and loving people. I believe in photographing the people and…

New Girl On The Block

New Girl On The Block

New trailer for Season 3 of Girls… Jessa’s back, yay, Shoshanna’s still awesome, yay, but… 1:15… Jenna Lyons! One of my major lady crushes… Very, very excited about this cameo, where she’s apparently playing Hannah’s boss. Might be just the trailer-edit but does it seem like the whole “quirky” thing…

Rogue Wave

Rogue Wave

This isn’t a brand new campaign but I came across it again this week while on the hunt for new sunglasses (SGC have recently released their debut range of eyewear which includes the amazing Moonbeams: ticking the boxes both for round and reflective, though I’m on the fence about their…

Fresh Summer Feast

Fresh Summer Feast

A little bit before Christmas, Undone Girl Jordan Rondel and the amazing Eleanor Ozich (Petite Kitchen) got together and held a beautiful backyard banquet for just a few tables of very lucky guests. The menu was unsurprisingly fresh and fabulous, packed with health and happiness, but one of our favourite…

Rio Rio Red

Rio Rio Red

I can never decide whether I love or hate this time of year for all the round-ups and best-ofs… A lot can happen in a year, and this one, for me at least, has been a particularly wild rollercoaster ride. But right now I’m feeling both positive and reflective, and…

3.1 Phillip Lim Holiday Wishes

3.1 Phillip Lim Holiday Wishes

If anyone can bring the fishnet stocking back into acceptable fashion realms, Phillip Lim can… Same goes for wearing bubblegum pink with apple green… And too-long loose-fit tapered jeans… Aside from those small shocks, Lim’s Holiday 13/14 collection doesn’t disappoint, sports-luxe done right and all signatures given space – clean…

Summer Loving: Lucy Kemp

Summer Loving: Lucy Kemp

Undone asked the very lovely Lucy Kemp, designer behind sweet new label Pardon My French (four pretty, wearable collections so far, with a covetable dose of deconstructed leopard-print in each, love!), to tell us some of her favourite summery things. She also shared some beautiful photos of her mother’s heavenly garden…

Raw Super Skin Brownies

Raw Super Skin Brownies

I try to eat well and look after myself for a few different reasons – I’ll admit one of them is pure vanity. I look better when I’m taking care of myself. My skin is prettier and calmer and overall I look more “well” when I’ve been really listening to…

Yin & Yang

Yin & Yang

Originally this shoot was going to be me photographing some radical still-life’s… I love still-life photography! But I decided it would be far more fun to get other people involved. I spend most days talking to flowers, so it’s nice having some clever people to bounce ideas off. I wanted…

Good Morning Tokyo

Good Morning Tokyo

While the Isabel Marant x H&M collection divided the fashion world (reactions from fever pitch to sneers of disdain and those, like me, and the wonderful Garance Dore, keeping the faith but a little bit on the fence), Left Bank’s reigning queen of cool moved quietly forward and released new…

Undone Girl: Lucy Houghton

Undone Girl: Lucy Houghton

Meet our floral-minded Undone Girl, Lucy, and stay tuned for her blooming beautiful posts on Undone Journal… I love flowers so much that I decided earlier in the year to try work with them full-time. It’s the perfect creative outlet for me. Since beginning Lu Diamond Flowers I’ve worked on…
