Friday Favourites

Happy Friday, Remixers! Spring has sprung and we are so looking forward to some warmer weather and longer days for exercise or imbibing, or both! However, the weather has not yet been kind to us…

Here’s a round-up of things we’ve needed this week, and things we have our eye on for the coming sunnier months.


Blunt XS Metro

If you thought we left winter well and truly behind us in August, then you have never lived in Auckland. We might have officially ticked over into spring but the wind and rain haven’t packed it in yet. If you’ve ever been in the predicament where you’re late out of the house, but can’t decide whether it’s worth the effort to lug an umbrella with you all day, then the new Blunt XS Metro is the go-to weather accessory for you. Blunt revolutionised the humble umbrella market with the structurally robust frame and high-performance canopies that can withstand the windiest of days, and their latest offering makes it easier to hop out of the house, prepped for a turn in the weather. Small enough to fit into your handbag, but with the enduring technology of a classic, blunt, this is a must-have for Spring. Head here to grab yourself one.


Grin Strengthening Toothpaste

Summer is not far off and while everyone is getting their beach-bodies ready to barrage social media with envy-inducing snaps, don’t forget to prep your pearly whites too. Grin is a game changer for those who thought toothpaste was a bland daily necessity. This Kiwi brand makes some seriously good oral care and sustainable bamboo toothbrushes. Don’t be fooled by the adorable packaging, their latest product: Grin Strengthening Toothpaste packs a punch with a cutting-edge formula designed to combat bacteria and strengthen teeth naturally. Using Hydroxyapatite (the main mineral our dental enamel is made of) as an alternative to fluoride to helps restore tooth enamel, while magnolia bark and organic sea salt control bacteria growth and maintain good oral balance. Grab yourself a tube here.


KitKat Gold


You definitely need to have a break (with KitKat) this weekend! The latest flavour of the classic wafer chocolate is so good, you won’t want to snap-and-share with your friends. The crunchy KitKat Gold wafer is covered in golden white caramelised chocolate and makes for a delicious caramel snack/meal/main course - depending on your cravings!


Heineken 0.0


It’s here! Heineken’s latest innovation has reached NZ, and the verdict is in. This low-calorie and alcohol-free alternative doesn't skimp on the classic Heineken taste, and is perfect for work lunches or if you're wanting to work out later, and ideal for when you don’t want to miss out on after-work drinks but you’re driving. The twice brewed blend is fermented with 100% natural ingredients, after which the alcohol is gently removed. You can get your hands on one today at selected supermarkets or liquor stores nationwide.

Reebok Flexweave Generation

The latest Flexweave kicks from Reebok are far from a mere accessory. Featuring a running shoe (Floatride Run) and a gym shoe (Speed TR),  the pair are built to withstand the heat whether you’re hitting a studio class clocking of miles outside. The lightweight Flexweave technology makes these shoes breathable, and soft cushioning makes these must-haves for getting fit this summer.

Enjoy your weekend, team! Fingers crossed for some better weather!
