Denizen Everyday Heroes 2021: Auckland’s favourite facialist, as voted by you

Oh, pampering, how we have missed you. There’s nothing quite like walking into a calm beauty therapist or spa, with that delicious anticipatory sense that you’re going to feel (and often look) much better walking out. Having tried our hands at administering our own at-home treatments over the last four months, we have an even greater appreciation of the experts who make it all seem so easy. Luckily, with Auckland moving to the traffic light system, we can book in for all our beauty needs just in time for the festive season.

The 2021 Denizen Everyday Heroes saw over 12,000 votes cast in support of local businesses, with the aim of shining a light on the people and places whose services we rely upon. Here are Auckland’s favourite facialists, as voted by you.

MOST VOTED: Lena Yakimchuk, Spring Spa Ponsonby
Hailing originally from Kyrgyzstan, Lena Yakimchuk is a beloved beauty therapist for her ability to tailor her clients’ treatments to their individual needs, and her passion that shines through in each and every appointment. While adept at all facials, her signature treatments are the Spring Spa X Augustinus Bader Methode Facial, and the Signature LED Light Treatment Facial. With Yakimchuk, you can be sure you’ll reach your skin goals while feeling utterly pampered at the same time.

HONOURABLE MENTION: Catherine Anderson, The Facialist
Wielding her “magic touch” from renowned City Works Depot beauty studio The Facialist, Catherine Anderson is deeply passionate about enabling people to feel beautiful and confident in their skin — as well as assisting with their overall wellbeing. With a quiet intuition and customer-led focus, she customises each facial treatment to suit the individual (as is The Facialist’s philosophy), and her background in massage therapy means a session with Anderson will have you floating.

HONOURABLE MENTION: Rishika Lata, Park Hyatt
Having brought her passion to every day in the beauty industry for over five years, Rishika Lata enjoys all aspects of her chosen vocation at Park Hyatt’s sumptuous spa, from educating clients on their skin to seeing incredible results after a session.

Handcrafted by an award-winning pastry chef, these are quite possibly the most delicious festive treats in town

After the year we’ve all had, we’re more than ready to embrace a relaxed and restorative festive season. This includes Christmas day and the lead-up — we’re not in the mood to be stressed and breaking a sweat while trying to get egg whites whipped for a pav. This doesn’t mean a lacklustre dessert centrepiece is on the cards, however, with The Pantry’s incredible Christmas offering available to impart significant wow factor to any spread.

Park Hyatt Auckland’s popular daytime eatery, this season The Pantry is a veritable treasure trove of incredible edible Christmas goodies, both made in-house and from traditional Italian makers.

Within the housemade selection are showstopping trifles and tarts, moreish mince pies, roulades, gingerbread houses and even a gingerbread wreath. Designed and created by Park Hyatt’s Executive Pastry Chef Callum Liddicoat and his team, each sweet sensation is a feast for both the eyes and the stomach, created with expert finesse and attention to detail.

While many of these desserts are of course traditional, Liddicoat and the team have put their own, fresh spin on each creation. Take the trifles, for example — available in three flavours (Tropical & Coconut, Berry & Peach, and Chocolate, Cherry & Mascarpone), they encompass silky panna cotta, fresh fruity compotes, airy sponge and clever gels and meringues. While we’re sure your grandmother’s trifle is tasty, these are next level and come in a glass trifle bowl that the recipient gets to keep.

The tarts are also exquisite; from lemon meringue to strawberry, chocolate hazelnut to raspberry, each is a colourful symphony of flavour and luscious presentation. For fans of a classic mince pie, The Pantry’s have a boozy touch from the fruit mixture being soaked in New Zealand-made, six-spiced botanical rum from Honest Spirits.

Any of the goods on offer would make a special gift, too — the gingerbread houses, in particular, are great for this, or the gingerbread wreath.

Additionally, within the broader Christmas Shop selection, find Dolce & Gabbana’s famously beautiful (and tasty) panettones as well as various flavours of panettone from traditional Italian pastry company Fiasconaro, chocolates from Bombones Cudié via Sabato, and more.

Whatever your choice, it’s sure to make sweet work of dessert this festive season.

Your first look at the luxurious St Marys Bay development that’s set to change the apartment game

When many of us think of newly built apartments, what might come to mind are potential compromises that have to be made in terms of space and character. But this need not be a worry with Shelly Beach, the new luxury development that’s set to raise the bar of apartment living to magnificent heights.

Located at 87 Shelly Beach Road, the secluded 1890m2 site will be home to eight penthouse-sized apartments, set over four levels. Hidden from street view down an extensive driveway, Shelly Beach will cut an elemental figure as it takes in unsurpassable views of the sea, the stone-anchored materiality of the building set to draw from its immediate coastal surrounds. 

The project has been designed by renowned architect firm Monk Mackenzie in conjunction with respected Auckland-based property developer Vanguard & Co, and Interior Architect Ella Dallimore — Ella is the designer behind the Ocean Suites and a number of private homes at Tara Iti. From the outset, the team has approached Shelly Beach with a level of design focus and plan for bespoke detailing that is normally reserved for an architect-led residential build or a luxury lodge. 

The strongly defined exterior will be punctuated with outdoor terraces that are recessed into the overall form, with overhanging planters adding verdant texture. Balance is to play a large part in creating a sense of liveability here; curved concrete internal and external walls will add a sculptural element to offset more linear shapes, and interior solidity will be balanced with softness from lush planting in winter garden spaces and high-quality, tactile fabrics used in the furnishings.

Each apartment is to have a generous floor plan of over 255m2, offering three bedrooms plus a flexible media room. The exquisitely appointed show kitchen, butlers kitchen, living and dining area in every home will boast an expansive 2.9m floor-to-ceiling height, and master bedrooms are designed to have an adjoining ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. The living areas are to be open plan and embrace an airy outlook, while the master bathroom is set to envelop the inhabitant in a zen-like retreat.

Spaces to display wine, art or classic car collections are an intrinsic part of the brief, and each apartment will also have its own lockable basement garage for up to four vehicles, all with an EV charger. 

“Liveability is changing and New Zealanders are embracing the thoughtful design practices they see internationally,” says Developer Michael Dallimore of Vanguard & Co. “Our market wants house-like proportions and spaces that are flexible and efficient, enabling rest and relaxation while also providing the ability for people to work from home.” 

Shelly Beach’s prime location offers short walking proximity to local Herne Bay and Ponsonby stores and eateries, as well as to Point Erin and Westhaven Marina. Looking out over the Auckland Harbour Bridge, Westhaven Marina and Rangitoto Island on one side, Auckland CBD and the Waitakere Ranges on the others, one is sure to be reminded every moment that there’s no better place to be than home.

Shelly Beach apartment sales particulars and pricing are by application, and an on-site display suite is available with viewings by appointment through Pene Milne at NZ Sotheby’s International Realty. Construction is scheduled to start in 2022 and the development will be completed in 2024.

Far from too-buttoned-up, a lightweight waistcoat is your essential summer layer

Take Kate Moss’ early noughties festival circuit signature — the waistcoat — to the boardroom and beyond. The way to wear it is either alone, as a top itself, or layered to add a touch of sleeveless structure to a lightweight dress or shirt. Pair with wide-legged trousers, choose a print or colour-blocking, and you have the reinvented look of the season.

‘Tis the season of giving — Here’s how to support local charities this Christmas

After the year we’ve had, it seems even more salient to lend a hand to those in need. Here are just some of the worthy initiatives that make it both simple and constructive to share the selfless spirit of Christmas. Go on, don’t be a Scrooge.

Support the Auckland City Mission as it rebuilds
Like many charities, the Auckland City Mission couldn’t receive donations of food and other goods during lockdown, which means they are even more in need of donation parcels in the lead up to the 25th of December. The community is also set to open the doors of HomeGround in January — a permanent housing initiative that will primarily be a place of transformation and healing. The team is taking monetary donations as it prepares to welcome the new neighbours. Learn more here.

Feel-good gift giving with ShopGood
Creating a greater force for positive change together, Cure Kids has teamed up with the new charitable online shopping platform ShopGood. From now until the 5th of December, shoppers can donate a portion of every sale to Cure Kids, making it easy to give back while shopping for Christmas gifts. Cure Kids is New Zealand’s largest child health organisation funding research into a wide range of illnesses and conditions that affect our children, so even a small donation is sure to go a long way. Browse ShopGood here.

Donate to or volunteer at Everybody Eats
While we’re planning our Christmas feasts, some families are struggling to put basic food on the table. As New Zealand’s first pay-as-you-feel restaurant, Everybody Eats ensures food doesn’t go to waste while encouraging everyone to come and enjoy a meal. You can help this worthy cause by volunteering in the kitchen or as waitstaff, or by simply donating online. Every $10 will provide three extra meals to the homeless or food insecure. This Christmas, the team has put together gift hampers. As well as its own treats, Everybody Eats is working with local businesses to create bespoke and exclusive bundles, with all proceeds going straight to the charity. Learn more here.

Give a safe, starry night at the Women’s Refuge
Sometimes staying home doesn’t always mean staying safe, with the pressures of lockdowns said to create a ‘perfect storm’ for family violence. At the Women’s Refuge, this meant demand for its Safe Stays increased by 25 percent in a matter of months. For $20, you can gift one night of peace for a woman and child, which includes a clean bed, hot meals, 24-hour security, supportive staff and helpful advice. Donate here.

Help a child with Foster Hope
Many foster children arrive at their new placements with little more than the clothes on their backs. Foster Hope Charitable Trust provides them with a backpack of essential items as they take this next step. Through its website, you can donate pre-selected items of various size and monetary value, from underwear and pyjamas to an adventure camp and, of course, a Christmas present. Donate here.

Protect vulnerable babies with the Petal Foundation
As New Zealand’s first dedicated service for babies suffering from prenatal exposure to drugs and alcohol, The Petal Foundation aims to provide stability and care for the vital first 1000 days of life. Through practising psychological and physical wellbeing, the highly specialised respite home will not only ensure a better start for its babies but supports mothers, whānau and caregivers for an overall better outcome for all. Help the team’s education, training and mentoring initiatives by donating online or volunteering your skills. Learn more here.

Gift Oxfam’s meaningful cards
With issues of waste shining a rather unflattering light on Christmas culture, Oxfam’s Unwrapped initiative gives directly to those in need, by way of a simple greetings card. From supporting farmers and beekeepers in remote areas to sending soap (and hope) to communities at risk of Covid-19 outbreak, each card will donate to a global cause on behalf of the receiver. As with all good gifts, it’s the thought that counts. Donate here.

Create the best teriyaki salmon at home with this incredibly simple, yet utterly delicious recipe

This is an easy Japanese recipe and requires a succinct list of key ingredients. To transform this simple dish into a varied and nourishing meal, serve the salmon with steamed rice, teriyaki sauce, steamed seasonal vegetables and pickles for a satisfying, salmon teriyaki donburi bowl.

Teriyaki Salmon Recipe
Serves 4

Ingredients
2cm fresh ginger root, finely sliced
2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely sliced
3 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp mirin (rice wine)
4 salmon fillets (about 500g in total)
Vegetable oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Method
1. Put the ginger and garlic into a bowl and mix with the soy sauce, maple syrup, mirin and a drizzle of vegetable oil.
2. Place the salmon fillets in a dish, season with salt and pepper and pour the sticky dressing over them.
3. Cover and set aside in the fridge to marinate for up to 2 hours, but for at least 20 minutes.
4. Place a large frying pan over medium heat and add a dash of oil.
5. When hot, add the salmon, skin side down, reserving the marinade.
6. Cook for 2 minutes, then pour in the reserved marinade and cook for a further minute or so, until the salmon fillets are opaque halfway up the sides.
7. Turn them over and cook on the other side for 3–4 minutes, basting with the sauce so that the salmon is well coated.
8. Add a splash of water if the sauce is too thick.
9. Serve the salmon fillets on individual plates, spooning over any teriyaki sauce left in the pan.

Henge’s starlight horizontal pendant and Minotti’s Jensen Low Back Armchairs complement this breathtaking space, both available from ECC

This awe-inspiring home is a luxurious monument to Los Angeles living

Developed by Viewpoint Collection and designed by Noah Walker of renowned architecture firm, Walker Workshop, The Carla House is a luxurious monument to Los Angeles living. Located on a sloped, 1.2-acre Carla Ridge property, in a prominent Beverly Hills neighbourhood, this awe-inspiring residence is about as ‘LA’ as it gets, sporting views from the Griffith Observatory to the Hollywood Sign and designed with entertainment in mind. 

The open plan kitchen features Henge’s Rio Stools and the Starlight Horizontal Pendant, available from ECC

Constructed over three storeys and broken into two wings connected by a low-lying central volume, the house comprises seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, as well as a number of special features (like a fitness studio and state-of-the-art movie theatre) across its sprawling footprint.

Wanting to create something that felt grand without sacrificing subtlety or sophistication, the team at Walker Workshop focused on a design that would integrate seamlessly into its surrounding landscape. Heroing long, elegant lines and an organic palette, a profusion of glass not only lets in natural light but maximises the home’s panoramic views. 

Simple yet sculptural shapes furnish the sitting room, including Minotti’s Boden side table by Gordon Guillaumier, the Prince Armchair and Song coffee table by Rodolfo Dordoni, available from ECC

Inside, materials like Western red cedar, concrete and white stucco combine in spaces that feel pared-back, modern and sophisticated. Grey tile flooring contrasts perfectly with the honey-toned timber on the walls and ceiling, while in the kitchen, spectacular marble islands and white oak cabinetry serve to conceal a suite of high-end Gaggenau appliances. 

Elsewhere, the bedrooms are accessible by wooden, concrete-framed staircases, and feature generous balconies, offering moments of privacy in a home that is largely defined by its openness.

Aston dining chairs by Rodolfo Dordoni for Minotti gather around Henge’s Ly-table, available from ECC

Driven, seemingly, by the playbook of Californian living, Walker ensured a strong connection between the interior and exterior spaces, utilising motorised sliding doors in the middle part of the house to dissolve the boundaries between indoor and out. Out the front sits a long pool, cleverly placed to bounce refracted afternoon light into the house, while out the back is a series of patios and gardens alongside a 26-metre infinity lap pool. 

In true Los Angeles style, this house becomes the ultimate party location via the middle structure’s rooftop, where a purpose-built, 2,000 square-foot party deck will offer a convivial experience that is second to none. 

A sitting space overlooks the tranquil green lawn, furnished with Jensen low back armchairs by Rodolfo Dordoni for Minotti and Henge’s Rio stools, available from ECC

Putting aside the bells and whistles, The Carla House exemplifies quiet architecture — where a home is designed with as little drama or extravagance as possible, to derive the maximum value and square-footage from a property. It plays into Walker’s design mantra of warm, organic modernism, something that sees the architect typically adopt a softer approach in the homes he conceives.

It’s in the simple, practical details that Walker is able to make a project sing, creating timeless, transcendent moments. Offering pause for thought in its carefully considered materials and injections of nature into the manmade structures, this incredible property is a sanctuary on a grand scale.

Panic no more — No. 1 Pancake is back and better than ever at its new location

When No.1 Pancake closed down its central city location on Lorne Street this year, it made headlines as its loyal patrons made the pilgrimage to the tiny store for one last order. Over 17 years, the unassuming hole-in-the-wall had won over hearts with its delightfully chewy filled Korean pancakes (known as hotteok), slowly pan-fried with a crisp outer layer.

The owners, Sung Kwon (SK) and Abigail Lim, took over No. 1 Pancake from a friend when it was still called Corner Pancake, and diligently flipped their new business into an inner-city culinary institution. When the lease came up on their outpost recently, the Lim family made the end-of-an-era decision to relocate away from city life, to the suburb of Rosedale. “For mum and dad, the opportunity came up to really think about moving,” their youngest son Jonathan says on their behalf. “It was a time to step back and think long term about shifting the work-life balance a bit.”

While the Lorne Street location was where devotees knew to line-up, an essential component of No. 1 Pancake’s secret recipe — the dough — was painstakingly proofed at the family’s commercial kitchen, so slowly that it took the whole night to complete. The new outlet is in the site of said commercial kitchen. As well as eliminating commuting times completely, it gives the parents the chance to prioritise their health and wellbeing.

The commercial kitchen is a lot more hospitable. “We can take a step backwards without hitting our backs against the wall. We can stretch out our arms fully without touching both walls,” says Jonathan. “It’s about 10 times bigger by the floor size.”

Devotees and newcomers alike can find No. 1 Pancake’s classic flavours at the new address, including ham and cheese, red bean and cheese, and, for dessert, brown sugar and cinnamon. While Abigail is always perfecting the dough, and finding how minor adaptations can change the taste and texture ever so slightly, it takes months before No. 1 Pancake introduces a new flavour. At the moment, it’s offering optional jalapeños, a spicy addition to complement and cut through the cheesiest of its pancakes.

Of paramount importance to the relocation was No. 1 Pancake doing right by their customers. Despite opening during level 3, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Although they didn’t have queues around the corner like they did on their city closing day, there were cars filing in from near and far. “It has been eventful,” says Johnathan. “Especially the first day, we had a much better turnout than we ever expected, seeing a lot of familiar faces pop up.”

While No. 1 Pancake is available via takeaway for now, the family is looking at shaded outdoor seating for relaxed dining during the less restricted summer months in Auckland — which will be a chance to regroup. “We want to say thank you for all the people who have cheered us on,” says Abigail. “We knew it was a big change, but it was a big change so we could maintain the quality.”

“We know it was a lot for our customers to bear,” adds Jonathan, “but we are still going to put in the same love and same effort.”

Opening hours:
Wednesday to Saturday: 11am — 7.30pm
Closed Sunday to Tuesday

Fancy chartering a superyacht in Europe? This company takes the process to a luxurious new level

Like us, you may have spent substantial time over the last 18 months dreamily reminiscing about life-changing trips embarked on when travel was more easily undertaken. The first swim at that hard-to-find beach, the incredible meal at that tiny, neighbourhood restaurant, the hours of relaxation with nowhere to be and not a care in the world.

And now, that dream can finally be a reality thanks to the recent joyful news that, from the 13th of February 2022, fully vaccinated New Zealanders can travel internationally and return home far more freely. No doubt this has prompted many to investigate the boundless possibilities of international holidays, and few would argue that the pinnacle of the bucket list is a luxury superyacht charter. With Europe’s summer season taking place between June and September, there’s no better time to book.

MiMi

Not only is it one of the safest travel options, as it’s somewhat isolated, but a yacht is the perfect platform to explore some of the most beautiful and remote parts of the world, giving those aboard a new and completely different perspective. 

Taking the bespoke and comprehensive service to the next level is 37South Yachts, New Zealand’s first full-service superyacht agency.

With a wealth of industry knowledge, 37South’s dedicated team are on hand to craft and develop bespoke experiences that cater to the most discerning of charter parties — no adventure is out of the question, and as a member of The Worldwide Yacht Brokers Association, 37South has unparalleled access to every charter yacht in the world. 

MiMi.

After an in-depth consultation that involves getting to know what will make the perfect trip for you and your guests, 37South selects a yacht to suit and builds a tailored journey, liaising with its partners in the locations to organise activities, plus with the captain, chief steward and chef of the vessel to organise the logistics. It also has team members on the ground internationally — in Europe, in particular. All that’s left to you to do is decide what you’d like to pack in your suitcase — anything is possible. 

And while you’re experiencing these possibilities, you can be sure whichever vessel takes you there boasts unparalleled luxury accommodation, world-class service, the highest quality cuisine and sumptuous amenities. Feature-wise, each superyacht has its own charms. It might be a jacuzzi with panoramic views and an outdoor cinema, or perhaps a private gym and massage room; an expansive dining room for dinner parties at sea, a stunning sun deck for lounging — and in many cases, it’s some combination of all of the above.

MiMi.

For when the borders are more freely traversable, we’re keeping in mind that 37South offers access to some of the most spectacular European locations — from the Amalfi Coast to Sicily, to the Greek and Balearic Islands. We’re certainly dreaming of floating on the sparkling waters of Cote d’Azur, Corsica and Sardinia.

If you are after a truly one-of-a-kind itinerary to indulge in an experience like no other, after two years being relegated to home turf, we suggest touching base with 37South’s charter brokerage team. From providing travel inspiration and Covid-19 policies to safeguard your travel, to investigating availability and specific charter enquiries, they are on hand to help take the ocean-faring holiday of your dreams to a sparkling reality.
