building lightbulb moments

Don’t know about you, but when I have a lightbulb moment, i.e, when a new idea strikes or something puzzling suddenly becomes clear, feelings of excitement or creativity or the satisfaction of those ‘aha’ moments wash across my consciousness. More often than not these moments occur when I’m having a shower or, as writer Naomi Bulger describes in her story on page 28, “elbows deep in a repetitive painting project or digging in the garden”. Bulger’s feature, ‘White Space’, examines why, when it comes to creative ideas, the brain needs to stop in order to spark. Which is often why we think of our best ideas when our minds begin to drift. Bulger has some great tips and exercises for creating what she calls ‘white space’, necessary, she says, “because never in…

your feedback

@thelittlecontentco @consciousnessnz @hellee_dee I only recently found Good magazine (at the Go Green Expo in Christchurch) and I have to say it is transforming the way I see and think about the world we live in. Your magazine is building my understanding of how we can practically influence the future of our planet by raising awareness and encouraging a different way of thinking; making better, sustainable choices today. But the reason I put pen to paper (or fingers to keys in this case) is to thank you for the most amazing life tip in “LIfe hacks & facts” (issue 62), which has transformed our household – putting jars/candle holders in the freezer to remove the old wax! I tested this tip immediately and it works like a charm. Ngā mihi nui. Amanda Derry Your…

allbirds.co.nz Makes you feel like dancing Tree Breezers are Allbird’s newest innovation and a refreshing new take on the ballet flat.

In other Allbirds news, the sustainable footwear brand is opening its first New Zealand store in Britomart, Auckland in August. earthfriendlycocoons.com Returned to the earth As anyone who has lost a loved one knows, honouring wishes for cremated remains to be returned to the earth is not as simple as it sounds, as there’s often a plastic lining within the urn you choose. That’s why we love Earth Friendly Cocoons – biodegradable cocoons handcrafted in Hawke’s Bay by Janine Gard. She creates cocoons for the ashes of our loved ones along with special cocoons for angel babies,…

frances hodgkins

It’s safe to say celebrated New Zealand contemporary artist Frances Hodgkins is having another big moment. Kate Sylvester plays homage to the painter and pioneer by using some of Hodgkin’s textile prints in her autumn/winter 2019 collection. Sylvester was given the opportunity to develop these prints by Te Papa Tongarewa which holds them in their collection. A woman of firsts, Hodgkins was the first New Zealander to have her work hung ‘on the line’ at the Royal Academy of Arts, the first woman to teach at the prestigious Colarossi academy in Paris and she was chosen to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale. “Frances was experimental, influential and thoroughly modern,” says Sylvester. Karen Walker has also released a very special collection – Frances Hodgkins Framed by Karen Walker in support of Auckland Art…
