the heat is on! nigella’s waiheke whirl

Nigella Lawson may have a sunny personality, but that’s about as close as the kitchen queen likes to get to those bright rays! The domestic goddess – who says she’s “sun-phobic” and claims to have a mild allergy to sunshine – was all covered up in a long-sleeved, full-length dress and fingerless gloves as she joined her assistant and make-up artist for a trip to Waiheke Island by helicopter. The trio rented a clifftop mansion near Oneroa Beach, where they sipped sauvignon blanc overlooking the sea, but they also dropped by some of the island’s most popular eateries, feasting on oysters, fish and chips at The Oyster Inn, and enjoying homemade bread, goat’s cheese, lamb ribs and cockles at winery Casita Miro. Our pictures bring to mind the last time Nigella visited Waiheke…

editor’s note

As the carefree holidays come to a close and the familiar rhythm of school and work returns, life seems somewhat predictable. But one thing we know from sharing stories at Woman’s Day is that the world has a way of serving up surprises when we least expect it. This week, my friend and former Woman’s Day Editor Wendyl Nissen starts a new series called That Day – talking to people who had been going about their normal lives when suddenly their worlds were turned upside down, never to be the same again. Often these events made news headlines at the time, but Wendyl finds out what happened when the rest of the world moved on – how these people coped with a crisis and how it shaped who they are today. First…

surprise, it’s a wedding! tj & greer’s top-secret ‘i dos’

‘ It was a whole bunch of emotions – how beautiful she was and then, woah, I get to marry this woman ’ As far as surprises go, it’s a doozy. In every direction, 100 mouths are agape with shock. For a split second, a stunned silence hangs over the crowd, before a wild cheer erupts – and six very surprised blokes sprint quickly up the stairs of Porirua’s gorgeous Gear Homestead in a mad dash. Their rush is understandable. After all, they’ve just been told they’re about to be groomsmen in a wedding that’s happening in less than an hour. It’s a glorious Saturday in Porirua, a perfect day for an engagement party – or so the gathered friends and family of All Black great TJ Perenara and his gorgeous fiancée Greer…

brad’s worst nightmare ange wages war on charlize

As the world oohed and aahed at the news of Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron’s budding romance last week, one Hollywood heavyweight couldn’t have been less thrilled – Angelina Jolie. Woman’s Day has learnt that Brad’s estranged wife is furious that Brangelina has been usurped by “Bralize”, not just because she had to find out from the media like the rest of the world, but also because she and Charlize have been professional rivals for years. “Make no mistake, Ange is fuming about this,” an insider tells us. “She thought Brad or one of their mutual friends would let her know before it went public, but that didn’t happen and she’s blindsided!” Brad, 55, and the Maleficent star finally reached an agreement on custody over their six kids – Maddox, 17, Pax, 15,…

atomic blonde vs tomb raider

• Both born in 1975, Angelina and Charlize have each adopted ethnically diverse children. Brad and his ex have Maddox from Cambodia, Pax from Vietnam and Zahara from Ethiopia, while the actor’s new lover adopted Jackson, seven, from her native South Africa and August, four, from the US. • Both had difficult childhoods and daddy issues have plagued each of them. Charlize witnessed her mum shoot dead her abusive, alcoholic father when she was just 15. Angelina cut her actor father Jon Voight out of her life for seven years after he claimed in 2002 that she had “serious mental problems”. • Angelina is a special envoy to the United Nations and her rival is a Messenger for Peace for the same organisation. The latter also founded the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach…
