Friday Favourites


It is currently 1:30pm and I am staring out of the office window at what I would consider as torrential rain. I don't know how you’re planning to spend your weekend but with this winter weather I will be tucked up in bed with snacks, netflix and the love of my life - my electric blanket. With less than four hours till the weekend, and a hot chocolate (or glass of wine) calling your name, we provide you with this week’s friday favourites.

Blunt x Karen Walker ‘Grandmaster’ Umbrella

Winter has certainly kick started and if you haven’t already pulled out your winter essentials from the back of your wardrobe, then honey you better get to it! Aside from a winter coat, a scarf and some sturdy weatherproof boots, one essential we recommend for this season is the Blunt x Karen Walker ‘Grandmaster’ umbrella. Inspired by the love for chess and people watching, the metro umbrella is light, easily compactible and unlike us, can handle the current weather.

Makers Anonymous Wine

Rejecting the traditional standards of winemaking, brand new comer ‘Makers Anonymous’ are shaking up the wine industry with their graffiti designed bottles and have cleverly removed the tasting notes from the back of the bottle. The brand has launched three wines; Rose, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris or as labelled wittily on the bottle ‘SEXY, SAUCY AND RISQUE.’ The wine is made from Marlborough grapes and is the perfect drink this weekend for those who aren’t too serious when it comes to notes and aromas and are just up for a good time. Pour me a glass!

Swisse Cranberry Pore Perfecting Clay Mask

If you’re like me and planning on a relaxing weekend in, the perfect product we highly recommend is the pore perfecting clay mask, suitable for all skin types for a luminous, smooth complexion. The Swisse Cranberry mask is a blend of Australian pink clay and cranberry and dragon fruit extract with natural acids to prevent help clogging of pores and produce radiant looking skin. Grab your girlfriends round for a pamper night and try out this luscious mask!

Made by My Food Bag

The weekend is the perfect time to relax and put those tedious weekly admins to bed, including making dinner or preparing meals for the week. One product we are certain will not only satisfy your taste buds, but will also diminish the task of cooking a meal, is the new ‘Made’ by My Food Bag. Super convenient and delicious, ‘Made’ is a range of single serve, ready-made meals full of fresh seasonal veggies and local free range meats. This one is on our favourites list as it is a perfect nutritional solution for when you’re lacking the energy or time it takes to prepare and cook a meal. We’ve all been there.

Stoneleigh Winter Garden Oasis

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend but are hesitant due to the icy temperature at the moment, look no further. New Zealand’s leading wine brand Stoneleigh have partnered with Glass Goose to bring you a very own Pop Up Winter Garden. Launching tonight and continuing for the rest of the month, the Pop Up garden oasis will be serving a range of specially created cocktails and mulled wine, perfect for a winter! Additionally, the pop up provides customers with tasty eats such as bao buns and dumplings alongside friday night jams from Auckland’s finest disc-spinners.
