Champagne + Shopping = Heaven

Champagne + Shopping = Heaven
What better way to kick off the Easter long weekend than with a bit of Thursday late night shopping? Throw in a glass of bubbly and most women (and some men) would be in heaven! Well that is exactly what is happening tomorrow night (Thursday 21 April). Two new stores, Suze the Day and The Collective Ensemble have just opened on south King street and several shops on the block are throwing a party and...

Sandy
This week I made another great discovery on South King Street. I met Sandy, both the store and the very talented designer responsible for all the goodness contained within the store.  I was instantly attracted to the beautiful hand illustrated t-shirts that I saw in the window as I was walking by. The ‘bubble gum blowing girl’ t-shirt design lured me into the store and the visual delights... 

Welcome home…from Jaanu

Welcome home...from Jaanu
How gorgeous is this floor mat! I bought it when I popped into Jaanu, on south King Street last week. It now takes pride of place at my front door. Great idea for anyone looking for a house warming present. It sure beats the boring “Welcome” mats. For those of you who might be curious about the name of the store, Jaanu means ‘sweetheart’ in Hindi. So pop into Jaanu and buy... 

So much happening on south King Street!

So much happening on south King Street!
I feel bad that I have been so neglectful of south King Street. Sure, I may have been a little preoccupied with making my house liveable but I recently took a stroll down south King Street and there are loads of great new things to see (well, “new” for me, probably not new for south King Street regulars). The first thing that grabbed my attention was the 7 Star Supermarket which makes a...

Ikea opens in Tempe in 2011
Anyone driving along the Princes Highway at Tempe lately would have noticed the dramatic changes at the expanse of land on the eastern side of the Princes Highway (630 – 726 Princes Highway). In late 2011 Ikea Tempe is scheduled to open and things are happening there fast.  Buildings have been cleared and concrete is being poured. Here are some facts you might not know about Ikea and the new... 

kisu, kisu, we love you

kisu, kisu, we love you
Some of my friends will kill me for this post, kisu is one of those fashion shops that you want to keep secret… But hey, they say saving is the new spending so sharing is the new caring right? Well what is the pinnacle of the fashion purchase for females? Would it be safe to say that to find an outfit that not only fits you but accentuates your shape in all the right places and hides your weaknesses?... 

Talented and creative! Artisans Arts & Craft Eveleigh Market

Talented and creative! Artisans Arts & Craft Eveleigh Market
How did I not know about this place? If you have never been to the Eveleigh Markets, it is worth a visit just to admire the space and the surrounding buildings – not to mention the great art, design, fashion and craft stalls. Despite my initial intention of going to the markets just to have a look (at least that’s what I told myself), I found myself continually pulling my wallet out the make...
