As your early 20’s start to feel like a distant foggy drunken memory and the big three oh starts to become very clear in your vision, your priorities seem to change. You start worrying less about what outfit you’re going to wear to ‘The Island this weekend and more about what succulent would match the woven table runner you just bought, or will those cushions go nicely on your new retro couch you just spent thousands of dollars on when it looks like something your parents had in the 70’s that probably cost them $100.

It’s a scary time but the most exciting part about making your nest your own and with the amount of banging homewares stores around these days this process is an absolute dream (not for the bank account though).

An amazing range of baby homewares for all those new Mumma’s out there and endless cushions, wall hangings and lamp shades for all you interior designs freaks.
There is not one thing in that store that I don’t want to buy, so if you’re looking to give your home a makeover or you have just moved into a new nest this is your one stop shop. Bondi was screaming for a little gem like this and if you aren’t from the East side and Bondi didn’t already have enough reasons for you to come visit, this is now no.1 on my preach list!
Picture this… it’s a scorcher, easily a 30-degree day with a high UV. There isn’t…
