Different cultures believe didn't things but in summary, they all say owls represent wisdom and knowledge. I have a few old wise owls in my family, maybe that's why I am so drawn to them?

Fiona works for Rodney Wayne Bayfair and was this year, chosen as one of 'The Dream Team', otherwise known as Rodney Wayne's Artistic Team.
"Fiona was one of 12 talented individuals personally picked by Richard Kavanagh for their skill, style and ability to communicate to our salon stylists.
Richard says he is "proud and honoured" to be mentoring this team with the latest looks hot off the runways of the world. The team are then sharing this knowledge with Rodney Wayne stylists through hands-on workshops and seminars all over the country. This means you get the freshest looks even faster".
We're very excited to have Fi on board and look forward to showing you the end results! Lookbook is coming VERY soon!

She married her long term love Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill this past weekend and I loved their media-released pic so much I had to share. How happy does she look (...and incredibly natural. Damn her for being so beautiful!) and how smug does he. It's like he's saying, 'yeah fellas, check out my wife'.

Katiemaree Cole is a kick ass New Zealand fashion label with the perfect mix of femininity and (I think) a certain mystery...this description on her website sums her designs up perfectly.
"Katie-maree started dancing when she was 3 years old. Introduced to the fantasies explored through her various roles and productions she grew a desire and passion to explore life through the colour and design of costume.
She joined hundreds of years of tradition of exploring the femininity, adventure and romance of fashion in their day-to-day lives…
“Each day I open my wardrobe and ask myself
“What part do I want to play today?” she says.
Her designs explore the adventure of being a woman, the beauty and the elegance."
