A birthday party, a cape and a curling wand – all in this week's Bridal Buzz!

The New Zealand Weddings Collection Show
In dress-hunting mode? We recommend you head to iTicket and buy a seat at Sunday’s New Zealand Weddings Collection show, pronto. Seven designers, sixty looks, a quarter of a million dollars of tulle, chiffon and lace on the catwalk. Plus, there’s suits for your groom and dresses for your flower girls – it’s the Fashion Weekend show you don’t want to miss.

Anna Schimmel 2014 Collection
In need of a serious dose of pretty to finish off your Monday? We’ve got just the thing: Anna Schimmel’s new collection, particularly, this cape. It’s sprinkled with a discerning display of crystals and it floats with such ethereality it deserves a place in heaven. We’re in love.   

Kérastase Turns 50
Get the bubbles out! Kérastase has just turned the big 5-0 and, if the past 50 years are anything to go by, it keeps getting better with age. The Beautifying Oil Cream is every dry-haired girl’s godsend, the Masque UV Defense Active has made sun-damaged strands a thing of the past and the Touche Perfection has been known to breathe life into even the weakest ends. Here’s to another 50, Kérastase!

Yogi 3-in-1 Curling Wand
Taking the DIY hair route? You’ll want some top tools at your disposal. Enter the Yogi 3-in-1 Curling Wand: its ceramic-infused barrels makes for shiny strands, its rapid heat-up technology means you won’t be in front of the mirror for hours, and the three different choices of barrel mean you can choose whatever size of curl you please. Ideal.  

Plume Vineyard Restaurant
Finding a restaurant that a) has good staff, b) serves great food c) has a pretty garden and d)isn’t too far away from somewhere with a wide selection of vendors can be a surprisingly difficult feat. Unless you stumble upon Plume, however, which checks all these boxes at once. Visit
