Matina Amanita Holly Ring in white gold and fresh water pearls in this elegant setting is sure to become a treausured keepsake for years to come.

Ruby Gift Vouchers make an easy gift solution and are guaranteed to elicit a smile on Christmas Day. Available in $50, $100 & $200 denomination.

Flint sunglasses are designed and handcrafted by leading Australian sunglasses specialists who have over four decades in the business of eyewear. Flint’s designs are all based on vintage styles, are a mark of true quality and will stand the test of time.

I love receiving beauty products as gifts. Something I don’t often treat myself to would be something gloriously indulgent like the Grown Facial Masque.

A wonderful thing about summer is letting loose on some crazy colours for your toe nails. Ruby Nail Varnish in Flamingo and Leprechaun make a great combo if you’re game to try your hand at the revival of nail art. This makes a great gift combined with Handbook: A Guide to Nail Art available from Trophy Wife Nail Art.

This elegant pastel floral feels luxurious in silk. Be daring and team the Liam Decided Shirt with the matching Liam Summer Suit Pants with the Liam Decided Blazer In Zap for the ultimate summer chic suit.

Summer weddings and cocktail parties call for the Liam Black Tie Strapless in a fresh lime. Feel completely supported with its boned bodice and feel utterly glamorous in flowing silk with a cheeky thigh high side split for that extra wow factor.

Majka's Christmas Wishlist #2

Only eleven days til the big day when the big man in red squeezes down your chimney, or for those of us who live in earthquake ravaged Christchurch and have no such thing - we provide him with a special Santa key - oh yes, the consumer machine takes care of these things so we don't have to! Have you accounted for every special person on your Christmas gift list? If you're still struggling, or are one of the thousands who love the extra challenge of leaving it til the eleventh hour, rest assured RUBY will see you through. Here's a list of my favourites this week to spark your imagination.


The Grecian-esque Ruby Giovanna dress boasts a boned corset for extra security, made of luxurious silk and adjustable straps for your comfort. Available in candy (pictured), classic black, and geometric pattern, or in a long version in burgundy and a sublime lemon.

The slimming Bonbon pantsuit features an elegant halter neck designed to cover all traces of your undergarments. This hot little number screams glamour, dahrrrrling! Team it with one of Ruby’s Bonbon heels and you’ll have them swarming like bees to a honey pot.

Ruby Gallery Dress takes colour blocking all the way with this gorgeous colour combo of white, merlot, and candy pink. This fully lined 100% silk tunic can take you from the office to dance floor faster than you can say “shaken, not stirred”.

Complete your look with matching nail polish in Giovanna (that’s burgundy to me and you!) and Macaroon (candy pink). Why not try your hand at some nail art and combine the two colours at once!

The Ruby Rocky sandal is the perfect partner to this rich colour palette. The burgundy pony hair with studded detailing makes this the ultimate sandal to rock out with the Gallery and the Giovanna dresses.

Every evening occasion requires a clutch and what better way to set off an outfit with a sparkly Ruby glitter purse in delicious boysenberry (pictured) or choose from 5 other stunning hues. You’ve gotta love a dainty purse that’s got the style factor and is big enough to accomodate your iPad. This girl loves her gadgets!

What’s a fabulous outfit without just a touch of treasured jewels? Matina Amanita’s charming Daffodil Blossom ring is finished with gold and rose gold plating. London and New York trained jewellery designer Matina Sukhahuta’s latest range makes a beautiful keepsake for years to come.

Majka's Christmas Wishlist #1

If you’re anything like me, your search of Christmas gifts begins with the selfless desire to give to others and inevitably ends with a ton of treats for yourself and very few for anyone else! It's also an occupational hazard for me, as I spend most of my days hunting down the most desirable, unique, and stylish fashion and design items to style or write about. Here are a few of my personal picks from Ruby that will give you a good head start for your Christmas shopping, or to pass on to family and those men in our lives who are scratching their heads without a clue what you most hanker for this Christmas. Just remember, if you're really afraid of going wrong, a Ruby gift card of any denomination to suit your budget (or credit limit) will do the trick. Please and thank you!


Clockwise from Top Left:
Ruby Gallery Singlet is a classic example of the hottest trend to hit the streets this summer - Colour blocking! Mixing soft nudes and peaches with startling pops of vibrant colour like this striking blue is right on the money.

Ruby Macaroon Scarf perfectly marries up with the Gallery Singlet. If the combo is too much together, tie the scarf in a bow around the handle of your shoulder bag for an elegant, yet fun look. The perfect little treat for yourself or for a Christmas gift.

Surface Too Deep Screen Siren One Piece swimsuit is all about celebrating the ultra feminine hour glass figure. From Wellington based swimwear design duo, Surface Too Deep’s third collection oozes Hollywood glamour reminiscent of the 1940s silver screen legends Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly.

Ruby Nail Polish in ‘Solidier’ is the perfect complimentary colour for your nails when an outfit like this steals the show. The perfect stocking filler this Christmas. The Ruby Nail Polish collection offers up a delectable, up-to-the-minute spectrum of colours to have some fun with!

A perfect Christmas gift or for your summer holidays, this Grown Facial Set includes travel sized cleanser, toner, moisturiser, and facial serum, beautifully presented in a stylish black circular gift box.

I was beyond excited when I stumbled across this exquisite debut collection from New Zealand leather accessory brand MYDEERFOX. The Pasta Clutch in black and natural (pictured) is my pick of the bunch, however the other more geometric shaped handbags are equally handsome. Another on-trend pick to complement any outfit.

Ruby Skater Shorts in peach in animal print jumps on the fashion world’s latest obsession with pattern, but in a completely unexpected colour.

Metallics add an oh so subtle element of luxe with the Ruby Metal Tote in green, petrol, and bronze (pictured). The perfect size for the beach or pool side to throw in a towel, sunscreen, a book, and a couple of magazines.
