we'ar aware xx

could you live on just $2 per day? raising funds for those living below the poverty line, this campaign is urging australian's to take up the challenge from may 16th - 20th.   yes that means no morning coffee or sneaky arvo treats for 5 days people! check out the website for more info or to make a donation.  and who says we can't give it a red hot go in nz? i feel a personal challenge coming on...

sneak peek

get excited... just received boxes of brand spanking new stock from bali this morning! wait till you see the delights we have hiding away...

geek chic

stay techno savvy with a rustic charm! we'ar leather laptop bags are cute as a button (literally... the button is cute, no?) and two sleeves give you room for a notebook as well :)

on the subject (just to be a super nerd) these Vers handmade wooden and bamboo iphone cases would make the perfect accompaniment:

and what's even more awesome is that for every hardwood tree they use in production, 100 more get planted in areas that need them most :)

we'ar will be using bamboo eco fabric in up and coming designs so stay tuned xx

travel buddy

hooray we have new manduka eco yoga mats in store again - in a multitude of colours to please any discerning yogi!  all natural tree rubber, non slip and easy to clean...

 we also have the super light and functional FOLDING travel mat! perfect for nomads and gypsy's... 

shown to scale here with our kabuki klompen - it's your own little folding travel mat that can be whipped out whenever the mood strikes... even if you're on top of a mountain! xx

tree silk lovliness

it's been a popular little number today... our batwing sweater made from 100% viscose aka tree silk (which sounds way more magical!) is the perfect trans-seasonal piece to layer up for the coming months.  can't wait to invest in a black version as well xx

lunchtime shout out

let's face it, auckland winter kind of sucks but there are ways to help overcome the gloom and doom.  dosha balancing with the right food choices certainly helps the cause, current lunchtime obsession for this flighty vata in need of nourishment is palak paneer from Arun's$12 spesh gets you a hearty feast with naan :)

on a side note, dragging myself out of bed in the morning just became a little bit easier!  accidentally putting maple sypup instead of honey into daily boring oats = best mistake ever. is it wrong to get excited over this? xx

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

By we'ar on 2011-05-03

yes, yes, and more yes. I am in love with my new we'ar boots and am currently sporting a sample pair with knee socks for the autumn chill...  


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 :)
