ALEX – Participating in Junk Free June doesn’t necessarily mean missing out on good food and you can participate to level that you feel comfortable with, while raising money for the Cancer Society of New Zealand. This is the second time that we have visited United Kitchen and this time, the food was even better than the last. It’s a 3-course set menu (that changes every 3 weeks) for $49 and everything was beautiful, including the atmosphere at the service. Go.


CHIN – There’s one thing you can always rely on at a Trelise Cooper show and that is plenty of drama and theatricality. I loved the production of her latest Theatre of  Fashion show that we attended on Thursday night. It showcased the Spring/Summer collections but we’ll show you more of those in a separate post. For now, how awesome is this suspended floral display by Tomuri & Co. running down the centre of the catwalk?


DANNY – I feel like I’ve been hibernating a bit the last couple of weeks so it was kinda nice to go out to a couple of events mid-week. Wednesday night must have been the worst rain we’ve had this year (ok, maybe only because I was out in it) but we braved it to head along to see the World of Nespresso at Shed 10. It was fun. Champagne, canapés and entertainment themed around the countries Nespresso source coffee from. It was also nice to hear about the environmental and farmer-protection programs that Nespresso has in place.

MINO – I’m not that familiar with Indian food so was keen to try a modern take on the popular cuisine. I had been meaning to try out Cassia for awhile and I am so glad I finally did. It was so good and I can’t wait to go back. Highlights were the soft shell crab curry and the scotch fillet vindaloo. Oh, and on the topic of Junk Free June, I haven’t had a coke all week and I’m doing fine 😉
