MAGICAL HEMA SKINCARE
My skin and spirit are in a wonderful place right now thanks to a visit to the magical Margaret Hema whose facials and hand-blended organic oils I just love.
She is a ‘must see’ whenever I am in Wellington, which these days unfortunately isn’t often enough. Especially when her facials – a blend of massage and her own special magic – have you walking out looking several years younger instantly.
Margaret has been looking after my skin for years and I practice what she has taught me. Massaging her oils into my skin morning and night is a ritual that adds to my wellness as well as creating beautiful skin. The scent of the pure essential oils that she blends into her oils, including Pacific Blue Lavender and Rose Damascena, instantly uplift and nourish the spirit as well as the skin.
The good news for Aucklanders is that Seonaid Lyons (www.hemafacialsauckland.co.nz), the only Auckland-based facialist trained in the Hema method, is operating in Westmere. And she is definitely Enword-approved! She has had wee break due to the birth of her beautiful son but is now back on deck facialing Hema devotees.
You can buy Hema oils from Seonaid as well as online at www.hemaproducts.co.nz and from selected stockists including Zambesi.

FASHION PARTY OF THE YEAR

Kate Sylvester’s 21st at the Grey Lynn Bowling Club. The perfect setting for a quintessential Kiwi 21st birthday celebration complete with speeches, cake, champagne, mini yard glasses, burlesque, confetti and rock ‘n’ roll of course.

Congrats Kate Sylvester and Wayne Conway on creating a beautiful thing. It’s something worth celebrating and as always you put on a great party!

BEST KEPT SECRET IN PONSONBY

This afternoon I tried out Natasha Radonich Hairdressing in Ponsonby.

Tucked down a wee alley at Three Lamps this super cute boutique salon is cosy, cute and delivers!

Radonich, who spent seven years working hair in Paris among other wonderful things, had my hair washed and blow waved superbly in under 30 minutes!

Love, love, love.

I’ve always loved this famous image by great American photographer Richard Avedon of Dovima posing in an evening dress by Dior with elephants.
I love the lines, elegance and glamour. It’s such a striking as well as beautiful composition.
And, it’s one of 80 photographs by Avedon to be exhibited at the Art Gallery of Western Australia from August 2 to November 17.
