Hitting the pool, hitting the beach or just doing your weekly shopping; a beach bag or tote is a summer essential. Throw in some sunscreen and sunnies, an on-trend towel and a bottle of Savvy B, and you're good to go (though shopping while sucking back a white wine is probably not a good idea).
If you're a colour lover and you adore supporting local, the homewares from this Aussie brand are going to cause you some serious heart palpitations (in the best way possible, of course!).
You know you're a home decor addict when your friends send you pictures of the inside of homewares stores, saying "you have to check out this place". That's exactly what happened with Opus Design Co; my friend Jess shot me a photo of the inside of the store via her iPhone and as soon as I got the chance I ran in there to take it all in. It's like a decorative rainbow exploded, in the most awe-inspiring way possible!
I've been ordering my groceries online lately. Advantage: I have more time of a weekend to do store tours. Downside: I don't get my in-person food fix! A trip to the Entertainment Quarter Village Markets was about to change all that, as I wandered through this extravaganza of fresh produce, flowers and random wares. It was the start of a blossoming romance!
