Get a Semi-Perm

The wide-rimmed black glasses are being buffed, the new trainers that actually look old are being purchased and the designy/markety/techy fanboy tingles are increasing rapidly in the lead up to next week's design wet dream they call Semi-Permanent. And the generous folk behind it (check out the interview with main brain Anna Cameron on Design Daily here) have handed us one of their precious golden tickets to give away. God we're good to you.

Given our love of extremely loose associations and ridiculous competition ideas, we've decided give it to the person who sends in a photo of the worst/best perm (or any other horrible/amazing haircut). Extra points if it's your own, or if it's a New Zealand classic. Email your entries to editor@stoppress.co.nz.

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
