ARTIST WE LOVE: Katie Rose Clausen

katieheaderfinal2This week we caught up with the lovely artist and fashion student Katie Rose.

Katie is a fabulous 18 year old fashion loving, quirky, vegan girl from Hamilton who has recently moved to Auckland to study fashion. If her designs are anything like her art we are sure she will be a massive success!

1Age: 18

Where do you call home?

At the moment Kingsland, Auckland.

When did you decide to pursue art?

It was a really natural decision for me to pursue art. I’ve been drawing all my life, ever since I could pick up a pencil. My family was always really encouraging of me and my creative pursuits. I have really bad Dyslexia and Dyscalculia so having a creative outlet to pursue is really amazing.24Tell us about your art and what inspires it:

I’m an illustrator and I mostly work in pencil. My drawings are always heavily inspired by fashion and   sub-cultures that surround me, and these influence the way I approach my work. I kind of view my work as every little piece or person that is in my life, being complied into one drawing.7 8 10 11What is your spirit animal and why?

My boyfriend says that it is an Aye-Aye, which is a type of lemur. Because apparently I look like one when I wake up in the morning. But I’m probably a super cuddly slow-loris or a beaver because I like building forts.

Describe your fashion style:

I’m trying really hard to get out of black! (Story of my life). At the moment i’m really into wearing things that don’t match and making it work, as well as structured over sized silhouettes and sneakers ….i’m a little obsessed with sneakers.

What is your lust piece this season? 

Definitely the Alias Mae Bellevue heel, They would fit into my wardrobe perfectly and I can see them working with all my outfits.13Who would you most like to meet? Dead or alive.

There are so many amazing women I wish I could have met or hope to one day! I love Frida Kahlo because she is just the epitome of bravery and beauty but I’d also love to meet Kathleen Hanna, Tavi Gevinson, Sophia Amoruso or Kate Sheppard for all the obvious reasons

146What designers are you loving At the moment ?

Kowtow, Low Classic, J.js Less and Min Kim. They all have a really clean minimalist look and experiment with the silhouette of garments.12What is your best beauty tip? 

Don’t leave the house with one eyebrow, I have done that. I didn’t know if I should wash it off or leave it to show that at least I tried to put effort in. Oh and always remember your brows are sisters not twins.

What is your greatest extravagance? 

My benefits brow kit and shoes…I love shoes5Want to win a piece from Katie?

How To Style :

blog 0The Slip-On, they are everywhere, on every fashionistas feet! Including Micah Gianneli, Tash and Elle, Jessica Stein from Tuula, and of course the lovely Mary-K.

The perfect way to style your Slip-On:

The great thing about this shoe is that you can rock them all year around!

In summer team them up with denim shorts and a white shirt for a super comfy chic look.

I personally love them styled with dark layered garments for a winter look – Think wet look jeans, PU joggers, flannel shirts tied around your waist, leather jackets, oversized knits and massive scarf’s.  blog5blog3 blog8 blog4blog7 blog6blog11 blog9blog1 blog2blog10blog12Are you ready to join the trend?

Cookies ‘n’ Cream Mousse Dessert

recipe mousse

Recipe Via The Cozy Apron

Cookies N’ Cream Mousse

Bored these holidays or need a pick-me-up to fix those back to work blues?? Try this! It tastes as good as it looks and is super easy to make. Defs adding this to our go to dessert list!

(Makes roughly 6 servings, depending on how much of the ingredients you eat before the finished product is produced…)

Ingredients:

  • 24 Oreo cookies, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 (500ml) tubs ready-made chocolate pudding/ dairy food, divided use
  • 500ml (2 cups) cream
  • 250g  chocolate, to shave for garnish (and keep you going while preparing this pudding :) )

Preparation:

- Add cream to a bowl and begin whipping; once slightly thickened , sprinkle in sugar and finish whipping just until stiff peaks form then set aside.

-In a large bowl, add 2 cups of the chocolate pudding (save the rest- resist eating it!) and begin adding the cream bit by bit, folding in (gently!) to keep it fluffy, this is the “chocolate mousse” part of the dessert; once all whipped cream is folded in set aside and begin the assembly.

Assembly (for 6 servings):

-Begin by adding equal amounts of the crushed Oreo’s to the bottom of each glass (about 3 tablespoons), then a layer of chocolate pudding (equal parts), and next a layer of the “chocolate mousse” (same amount again); repeat this process again for each glass and layer until desired serving size is reached (so, lots), finish with a sprinkle of the crushed cookies (NOM) and get fancy with the last of the mousse mix. Garnish by shaving a little of the chocolate over the tops of each glass; pop into the fridge until ready to serve, or (and we recommend this) eat immediately!!

Soooo. Damn. Good.
