head rush

its 5pm and for some of us the energy is a little burnt out... uttanasana is one of my favourite poses for rejuvenating a stagnant mind.  plus a good good ol' hamstring stretch is always a bonus!  

somewhat challenging self pic, casually hanging out in my we'ar tubelicious xx

body butter bliss mmmmm

buttery goodness in a jar we'ar love love loving the kopi ginger body butter in store... organic ingredients produced in Bali including vanilla pod, cinnamon bark and espresso extract (YUM) brings all the best things together with a rich velvety texture. Get that tester pot away from me before its all gone! xx

jamaican feeling

there is a new obsession lurking here at we'ar... hair accessories! feather extensions and hair wraps to be more specific...

the african hair braiding studio up on k rd can give you a stunning multi-coloured wrap (a vast array of colours available - i went for a green purple and black combo) and the early 90's womans day posters papering the walls are a nice (hilarious) feature. getting in touch with my inner rasta slash 10 year old self never looked so good! plus you give off a nonchalant 'just been on vacation' vibe.

for a more romantic feel feathers woven into your locks are a cute idea, and have surprising longevity as well as being wash and wear :)

if you're not ready for such a permanent commitment, we have some cute feather headbands for instant whimsical appeal...

and our feather earrings are sourced from a sustainable farm so you can feel even better about we'aring them xx

everybody needs good neighbours

We wanted to share the love and give you an insight into our 'lil community here in the K rd surrounds... 

If you love your tea as much as we do then... hooray! Do we have the place for you. Head upstairs to tea culture which doubles as Kfm's studio and Te Karanga gallery.  The sound is good and we especially love the Strawberry and Vanilla Rooibos blend here at the shop for all day long consumption!

If you are partial to a good street party then First Thursdays is a good excuse for some late night shopping/ people watching/ free beverages/ arts and craft bonanza! Last event in March was heaps of fun and we'ar getting excited for the next round in June!

Ravioli with baked ricotta, goats curd, baby beets, horseradish and walnut brown butter.  I'm sorry did I just die and go to vegetarian heaven?? Just one of the delightful morsels on the Coco's Cantina menu.  They also have pork belly for the meat lovers... say no more... 

While on the subject of food (always a hot we'ar topic of discussion) Revel's cafe is full of excellent lunch options and they do a vegan peanut butter cake that will make your heart sing!! Lalala....
check out their facey page for info:

Also seriously what is better than a hot cup of joe on a cold wintry morning? we'ar loving Millers (right next door!) for our daily fix.

Cute vintage treasures are right outside our front door at Tiny Space and we are loving the eclectic array of lamps and chandeliers xx

So come on down to our hood and say hello, we'ar looking forward to meeting you :)
