Wrap up your week with Sunday’s Unplugged at The Lula Inn 

If you’re a Lula Inn regular, you’ll already be aware that their weekend of entertainment is not one to miss. From bottomless brunches to dining deals, they’ve got enough going on to complete any evening. For NZ Music Month, The Lula Inn has been boasting Sundays Unplugged since the start of May, an evening packed with delicious food, excellent wine and even better music. That’s why this week’s musical line up is on our radar, with Che Fu joined by Soul Satellites and Mal Lakatani – it’ll be giving Saturday a run for its money. 

Relive the '60s with OPI’s newest collection – Grease 

Unless you’ve been living under a rock or were born in the millennium, you’ll know Grease is the word. It’s hard to believe it’s been 40 years since the iconic summer classic first hit the silver screen and apparently we weren’t alone when we said it’s time for it to make a comeback. The team at O.P.I have decided to pay homage to the cult classic with their new OPI Grease Collection. The 12 retro shades are inspired by the musical and tick all the right boxes for any die-hard fans out there. Available in three finishes – Infinite Shine, GelColor and Nail Lacquer, you can paint your way through Sandy and Danny’s summer of lovin’.

Aesop’s newest art installation is a cultural masterpiece

Smith and Caugheys are bringing you another jaw-dropping window installation this month and it’s not even Christmas yet! They have teamed up with Aesop to create a work of art featuring 7,000 signature amber bottles that have been used since the brand was founded. In a demonstration for support for both artists and writers, the piece includes a quote from William Butler Yeats. Combining their love of literature with the legacy of their brand, Aesop’s installation will truly be a sight to behold. It’s only running until May 27th, so get in quick to be a part of this literary homage.
