Aria and I have been formulating her range of lip love. Using natural ingredients that taste great are our only option. Check us out. Do your lips a favour
From your lips to your tips. Pamper yourself with ABC & D from Aria's Beauty Care & Designz range. Aria has always loved lip balms, lotions and make up. She loves to try every flavour and brand possible. Unfortunately, we didn't know what have the ingredients were let alone say them. Her and I decided we wanted to design a range that used natural ingredients, were free from chemicals and tasted fabulous. We also wanted to be able to pronounce the ingredients. We were going to be putting this into or on our bodies. So in the kitchen one day, we started to experiment. There are loads of ideas for new blends and flavours, so be on the look out.
Pā Reo - Te Tai Tokerau
Kawakawa - Micropiper excelsum
He rongoā Māori te kawakawa
Kawakawa is a Māori medicine
When Ranginui and Papatūānuku were separated Papa was in a state of mourning. She was overcome by grief, sadness and mamae (in pain) physically, mentally and emotionally. Io sent down the plant kawakawa to cover her body, grow and heal the scars of the earth.
Always remember how completely connected we are to our taiao.

Karakia mo te ata
Prayer for the morning
Haea te ata, hāpara te ata.
Korihi ana te manu kōmiromiro,
Moe ana te manu piopio.
Ka ao, ka ao, ka awatea.
Appear the sunrise, appear the dawn.
The kōmiromiro is singing,
The piopio is sleeping.
It is light, it is light, it is daylight.
The kōmiromiro (Tomtit) is a bird associated with good news, being alert and having attention to detail and the piopio (NZ Thrush) now extinct also known as te tiutiu kata (Laughing Tiutiu) due to its ominous laugh sounding call was known for bearing bad news and omens.
