2023 is all about embracing change and prosperity. We’re excited to release our 2023 Seasonal Handbook, which we've been crafting and developing over the past 12 months. Each year, we choose a unique and thoughtful theme to help reflect on the changes we experience in ourselves and the world around us, depending on the month and season. This year, our chosen theme is the lifecycle of the cicada.
The cicada's song is a reminder of a hot summer day here in Aotearoa. In our 2023 handbook, we're guided by their life journey, embracing the opportunities of seasonal change, checking in with ourselves, finding a sense of connection, and accepting what's new with enthusiasm.
Our Seasonal Handbook includes a range of tasks and prompts that help us set goals for ourselves and reflect on different aspects of ourselves as we journey through the year. We've designed this handbook to be a valuable tool for anyone who wants to empower themselves to achieve their goals.
Goal setting is important because it helps us to focus on what we really want and what we need to do to get there. By setting goals, we can improve our lives in a meaningful way, and achieve greater success, happiness, and fulfilment.
In our Seasonal Handbook, we emphasize the importance of mindfulness in goal setting. By being present and fully engaged in the moment, we can gain greater clarity and focus, and be better equipped to identify and achieve our goals. We also want to empower women to take control of their lives and achieve their dreams, whatever they may be.

There are three body measurement points that you need to know to ensure a great fit – bust, waist, and hips.
When taking your body measurements, wear the undergarments you normally wear for the most accurate results. Use a flexible tape measure, or a piece of string and ruler, and hold it around each body point so it is comfortably snug. If the tape is cutting into your flesh, it is too tight.
To ensure an accurate measurement around your body, keep the measuring tape as level as possible from front to back. We recommend measuring yourself in front of a mirror so you can check this from a side view. If you can, get a friend to help you to ensure the most accurate measurements.
Bust: Wrap the measuring tape around your back and where the tape meets across the fullest point of your bust is your bust measurement.
Waist: Wrap the measuring tape around your natural waist, the slimmest part of your torso, pulling the ends to the front. Where they meet is your waist measurement.
Hips: Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your bottom – this is usually low down towards your thighs. As with your bust and waist measurements, where the tape meets is your hip measurement.
Length: To measure the length of individual garments against your body it is best to measure down the centre of your back. To do this, start the measuring tape at either the base of your neck for dresses and tops, or at your waist for skirts. Measure down your body to the measurement listed in the garment description. This will show you where the garment comes to on you. When you are measuring for length, remember to make sure you are standing completely upright – it is best to have someone help you with this. Alternatively, compare the measurement with the length of a garment you already have.
