I found the article “The Girl With the Golden Heart” (issue 76) really inspiring. So much so that I shared it with my class of 12 year olds. We have been talking a lot about resilience and learning to cope with challenge and change. Harper is an inspiration to children of her age that often give up because it’s too hard. To read about her commitment to Te Reo Māori and Kapa Haka and the way that she is giving a voice to disability was empowering. Harper is a wāhine toa who has connected with her roots and will be a force to be reckoned with in the future. I’d love to read more inspiring stories about the rangathi of Aoteaora in future editions. M Meade I read about Re.stor Laundry…

Somewhere Man Maggie Marilyn’s highly anticipated menswear line, “Somewhere Man”, is here. It’s been designed to maximise wearability and create boundless mix and match styling opportunities, all manufactured via a conscious and visible supply chain.

From the outside, Matilda Green’s life looks like a fairy tale. She met her prince, Art Green, on TV’s The Bachelor, got married and now has two children, a boy, Milo, 3, and a girl, Autumn, 5 months. Living the good life after trading Auckland city for a semi-rural lifestyle in Warkworth, they couldn’t be happier. Green, 31, agrees that life has been pretty good so far. She often wonders what her life would be like if she hadn’t gone on The Bachelor. Most likely she’d be climbing the corporate ladder in media. Instead, the media spotlight has swung onto her life – and mostly that has been positive, though there have been times when Green has copped some flack, which she is learning to take in her stride. “I’ve made a lot…

matoodles’ hair mask

“Don’t forget to use cold water to wash this out otherwise you’ve got scrambled eggs all through your hair. I know that’s really hard to get out because I’ve done it before!” 2 eggs1 tablespoon honey2 tablespoons coconut oil Mix everything together, then apply to dry hair. Try to leave the mask on for as long as you can, but at least an hour. You can wrap your hair in cling film or tinfoil if that helps to keep everything tidy, as it can be quite cold and drippy. Rinse out in the shower with cold water and follow with your usual shampoo and conditioner. Full-Body Exfoliant “If I have a bath I rub it all over myself and keep it on for a while, then wash it off. It’s just beautiful, though it does…
