As the hype of Valentine's days starts to die down and we inch closer to the saviour that is the weekend, it's time to review the favourites of this week from the remix gang. If you didn't get the warm fuzzies from someone else this weekend, then it's time to to invest in some self-love (yes, I did just call it that) by scrolling through our top picks on how to lose the post-valentines blues.
If you haven’t heard of Blush, I feel bad for you. The Parnell flora guru’s have dominated the flower scene since they graced our weddings and work places a few years back. Having finished no doubt their craziest week of the year (thank you St. Valentine) they’ll be back to business and ready with your dream bouquet this weekend. If you didn’t receive a bouncing bunch from that special someone, go visit their stylists in store and create your ideal arrangement. If you did, there’s always room for more flowers, but they also stock a selection of beautiful homewares for those with more permanent taste, or hay fever.
Once you’ve nailed the self-love side of things, you’d better find your way down to Ponsonby Road this Saturday for some serious celebration, as the cultural hub of Auckland hosts it’s first ever eponymous Street Festival. Although the usual affair of strolling up and down this fine suburb’s streets is always riveting, sometimes expensive, the street festival is not only FREE, but will boast just about every form of entertainment you can (legally) have on the streets, and there will be enough food to ensure you leave with your fly undone. It kicks off at 2.30pm, and the best part is it’s canine friendly. If you want to know more about it, check out our post from Monday here. Otherwise we’ll see you there with bells on.
As if we didn’t all have enough pairs of jeans already. But, I’m telling you, you need another one. Luxury fashion shouldn’t have to come at the price of the earth, and RE/DONE couldn’t agree more. Repurposing ye old faithful Levi’s into new modern cuts that suit the contemporary wearer, RE/DONE utilizes the beautiful denim we all know and love, keeping production in Los Angeles, and using water conserving methods and no harsh chemicals. So, if sustainability is your gig, you need to give these guys a chance you rock your eco-friendly world. If not, the flattering cut and perfectly worn denim is enough to make you want to throw your paycheck at them anyway.
