Favourite things

I love a good list. Here are some of my favourite things at the moment:

Maggie Beer's burnt fig, honeycomb and caramel ice-cream - if you haven't tried this, you need to (only available in Australia I think - I get it at Parisi's Rose Bay).

Have You Met Miss Jones makes quirky porcelain/ceramic decor, including retro-style ceramics and porcelain table lamps in a range of different styles (e.g shells, cockatoos, etc). This camera lamp is pretty cool ($95).

Gemma Correll's 'Pugs Not Drugs' series is so cute. She makes T-shirts, tote bags, badges and prints available online from her Etsy Store.

Love the fact that Zara is opening in Sydney in 2011 (Westfield, Pitt St Mall). Finally some affordable, good quality work-wear. Bring it on H&M and Topshop!

Bassike (pronounced 'basic') t-shirts and singlets. A great Aussie label doing a range of t-shirts, sweats, singlets and other, er, 'basics'. What sets them apart are the interesting cuts, good fit, soft fabrics and a variety of cool colours. 

Glasshouse candles. They have two wicks, a long burn time, a range of interesting and beautiful scents, and are triple scented so they perfume your whole home. They retail for about $35 so are really good value given how long they last for. Plus they have names like 'Bora Bora' and 'Amalfi Coast'. If only... x


  1. mmm... don't get me started on that burnt fig ice-cream, once the lid is off it's all over!! Some of my favourite things at the moment are that Blue caravan website you mentioned in the last post (it's awesome!) and also the Etsy taste test Have you had a chance to try it yet, it's really fun but very dangerous!

  2. Uh-oh. I just checked this out. SERIOUS temptation!
