Friday Feed: 7 things you need to know heading into the weekend

The busyness that comes with the start of the year means that sometimes, it can be hard to filter through the noise and nail down the most important, most time-pertinent or most intriguing things going on right now. In the spirit of helping you do just that, we’ve rounded up 7 of the things you should know about heading into the weekend.

Fashion month has kicked off in New York…
Fall 2019 is off to a roaring start in the Big Apple, with the likes of Ralph Lauren, Tom Ford, Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Rachel Comey presenting their new collections. Drawing fashion’s glitterati out from winter hibernation, this is just the start of what is set to be a big month.

For all the information about what lies in store for the first of the La Cave weekend pop-ups, click here, but just so you know, tickets are selling fast (and it’s not something you want to miss out on).

Karen Walker has just released a new eyewear collection…
Aptly named ‘Euphoria,’ Karen Walker’s latest collection of sunglasses plays in the crosshairs of the ideas of piety and hedonism.

A new beauty spot has opened on Ponsonby Road…
Zoe Clarke (L’Oreal hair artist) and Imogen Bevan (founder of POP Nails) have opened the doors to their beautiful, new beauty destination in Ponsonby Road’s Fire Station. INCO Studio will offer a range of hair and nail services, perfect for when you just need a little weekend lift.

230 new emojis are set to be released this year…

Belles Hot Chicken pop-up at Longroom ends on Sunday…
Morgan McGlone, the creator of Belles Hot Chicken is back at Longroom after a successful first pop-up in August last year. Teaming up with Estrella Damm to offer a temporary menu at Longroom of delicious Southern fried chicken and icy cold lager, the chicken connoisseurs have rendered the Ponsonby Road hotspot even hotter – especially with the addition of the hot wings challenge, which invites anyone game enough to eat six of the ‘Really F***ing Hot’ wings as fast as they can. If that sounds like a bit of you, make sure you get in there to try your luck before it all comes to an end.
