Easing us back into the new year, our first long weekend, Auckland Anniversary, is happening this Monday. And if the recent weather is anything to go by, you can be sure it's going to be a good one! To make it a long weekend to remember we've put together a few essentials to assist in creating those memory-making, time-rich, photo-worthy moments. But, above all, eat well, wear sunscreen, and don't forget to take a moment for yourself!
These beautiful and functional 'And So It Goes' Handmade Market Net Bags (pictured above) are a must-have for any produce hunter. Whether you're chasing down a late breakfast and coffee on-the-go at Matakana Farmer's Market, or sampling exotic vegetables from the local growers at Avondale Markets, this bag is for you. Available in orange, black and natural colourways, each with brown leather handles, $147 each.
The epitome of summer, our Missoni Beach Towels are fun! Extra large, supremely soft and very, very colorful. Perfect for the beach, pool-side or underneath your next picnic.
Available in store and online, $385 each.
With the sun in full force, lather on sunscreen that's also good for your skin! Triumph & Disaster's Summer Tool Kit ($110) includes: No Dice Sunscreen, Shearers Soap, Game Face Moisturiser, and Drawstring Bag.
There's nothing better than finishing off a hot summer's day with a refreshing glass of champagne served in our Spiegelau Crystal Champagne Saucers, $28 each and bursting with good times.
Breakfast in bed is compulsary on a long weekend. Freshly squeeze juice, hot toast and black coffee. Do it in style with this elegant and simple Willow Wood Bed Tray, $69.
