Monday must-haves

Can you believe that on this day in two week's time we'll officially be celebrating Christmas! If you're anything like us, the champagne will be flowing, you'll be eating chocolate for breakfast and enjoying a beautiful Christmas Day with family, friends and loved ones.

These last couple of weeks are sure to be hectic - full of social events, last minute shopping, writing and re-writing your Christmas wishlist, and planning the rest of your summer. We've covered all of those bases in this week's roundup of Monday Must-Haves.

Get excited because this beautiful weather looks set to last .... and there are only two weeks of the working year left to go!

Auckland City Limits adds to its stellar 2018 lineup!
This summer, we're being spoilt for choice when it comes to events and music festivals. Case in point - on 3 March 2018 Auckland City Limits - which has just announced two exciting new additions to its lineup. Sure to get the crowd hyped, Future and Young Thug will be joining an all-star lineup including Beck, Justice, The Libertines, George Ezra and the legendary Grace Jones. This full-day music festival is inspired by the world-class Austin City Limits and fuses the very best elements of the premier Texan festival, with a New Zealand flavour and spirit. For more information and to purchase tickets, head over to the Auckland City Limits website, here, or Facebook page, here.

Tom Ford Black Orchid Hair Mist is at the top of our wishlists
From frizz-causing humidity to sun and salt water, it's no wonder summer is known to wreak havoc on hair. Give your hair a well-deserved summer holiday with the Black Orchid Hair Mist from Tom Ford. This is a light-weight, sprayable hair perfume which combats the drying effects of summer weather, whilst leaving hair richly scented with the Tom Ford Black Orchid fragrance. The unique formula feels natural, not weighed down or heavy, and gives hair a soft sheen while nourishing it and keeping it soft and smooth. Shiny, soft, perfumed hair? What's not to love?!
