Like a lot of good ideas this one came about over a nice bottle of wine and plenty of wit and wisdom shared between four friends. After working for a wonderful non-profit organisation for six years I had decided it was time for a change. The idea of a summer spent by the pool appealed but aside from the fact that I would have to share space with offspring and friends and the very real threat of melanoma I knew my holiday was but a temporary one.
What were some of my favourite things? Aside from my family and friends, in no particular order, a list was underway. Magazines – from my first subscription at a tender age, a lifetime love. My first lipgloss purchase – the beginning of an infatuation, and with love from mum, the skill to tell a story.
And so from a weekend in Wellington and a push from friends my writing career was born. I can’t promise to change lives but I hope to keep you up to date with the constantly changing, but always fascinating world of beauty.
