Nau Mai ki te Māwhai Tuhituhi!

Mōrenā koutou katoa! Hei te ata nei kei te whakatūwhera mātou i te whārangi ipurangi mō te Māwhai tuhituhi, tā koutou pakiwaitara tuhituhi ā-ipurangi.

Kua oti kē i te kaituhi rongonui haere nei a Paora Tibble te whiti tuatahi te tuhituhi, ā, māu e whakamutua – āpiti atu ō tuhituhi ki te pakiwaitara ia rā, hei te 21-25 o Hūrae. Āpiti tō tuhi hei te wahanga tuhi ki raro nei, uru ki te whārangi o te māwhai tuhituhi hei te patohia i te pikitia “māwhai tuhi” ki raro nei ki tetukuna i tō tuhi ki a mātou.

Ka whiriwhirihia kotahi te whiti ia rā hei wini i te taonga mo te rā, ki te wikitoria i te taonga nunui pea, ā, ki te hono ki te pakiwaitara mo te whiti o te rā.

Tukuna mai ō whiti – kia tuhi!

 

Ānei te whiti tuatahi… me aha inaianei?

Kua horoia ngā rīhi, ka paoho mai te pouaka whakaata,

“I tēnei wā ka huri ki ngā matapae huarere mō āpōpō, tērā te whakatūpato a Te Ratonga Tirorangi, he āwhā, he hau āwhiwhio …”

Kātahi ka weto te pouaka whakaata! Ka weto ngā raiti o te whare! Kua pō uriuri.

Fashion Friday

Normcore, is it a thing?  A new ‘trend’, a joke, something you need to be wearing right now?!

According to The Cut, who broke this very important story yesterday, the latest trend for the youngsters in New York is to dress ‘normally’.  Not like a fashionista, hipster or an authentic individual, but with a sameness which means they blend into the crowd. (Or look like an extra from Seinfeld).  Plain mum-jeans are a feature, as are socks and sandals, New Balance sneakers, baseball caps and plain t-shirts and jumpers.  (Alexa Chung’s buddy Dev Hynes favours a turtleneck).

Is this real? Do you – or would you – dress like this?  I have been digging my trackpants lately…
However, not everyone belives.

Here’s an example of library normcore – a workmate wearing her totally normal, plain (and comfy) Nikes.  (Co-ordination with the carpet way too fashiony though).
