Girl-about-town Pebbles Hooper shares her penchant for nostalgic and artistic keepsakes.

Pebbles Hooper, renowned for her trademark Twitter wit, has been growing a new reputation for her parodic art works of celebrities such as Kate Moss, Woody Allen, Amanda Bynes and a crying Kim Kardashian. Stylistically penned on a tablet, with weird and wonderful collaged backgrounds of items such as Big Macs and crystals, the drawings are sold as prints and T-shirts at Pebbles' online store ( With her designer upbringing and quirky tastes, we were curious to discover some of the Diabetes New Zealand ambassador's favourite pieces.


1. Fornasetti scent dome
I've loved the iconic Fornasetti face since I was young, and my mum used to collect the plates, so the scent dome is a nice object to have around my room. It's very nostalgic.

2. Cire Trudon candle
They're the most beautiful-looking and smelling candles you can buy and they make the room look and smell pretty fancy.

3. Crown Lynn swan
My dad bought this for me when I was little. I never appreciated it as much as I do now, but it's beautiful and classic and always reminds me of Dad.

4. Bioattic terrariums
These cactus domes are the best alternative to flowers. I have an incredible knack for buying flowers that die almost as soon as I put them in a vase, so having some resilient plants hanging around is a must.

5. Peter Stichbury portrait
There is really nothing in my room I prize more. His work is such an inspiration, so to have a portrait is mind-blowing. It makes me happy every time I see it.
