Reason #1 why we love this clothing boutique: the owner’s puppy hangs out with you while you shop! Just kidding, but that’s definitely still reason #2. We love this boutique and its huge variety of high end and luxury brands like Free People and Spiritual Gangster. If you’re not into browsing through the trendy racks, then make yourself comfortable with a freshly brewed cappuccino in the lounge area. Plus, there’s always a great sale section for the smart shopper!
One step into this holistic skincare company and you’ll be hooked. The whole place smells like lavender and pure joy. The plant based formulas have a secret ingredient: a dose of love in every product. Each item is home grown, slow made and sustainable— not to mention ultra calming and relaxing. Think rejuvenating face and body oil, hydrating lip salves and exfoliating pink Himalayan salt scrubs. Hint: the June’s got an exclusive scent for soap and body oil.

You know Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote? About living in sunshine, swimming in the sea and drinking the wild air? Well, our ultimate dream is to do all three of those things while clothed in a pastel Italian Linen tunic from Fête Beach.

Every piece is impeccably designed and hand sewn with the finest textile fibres in the industry. More importantly, these beautiful pieces are representative of the elegant freedom that lies within each individual’s unique style. Empowering much?

And though we never considered ourselves to be green thumbs, we’ve learned a thing or two about transforming a space with tropical touches and urban edges…thanks to the masterful Jessica Acs over at Parlour Studio.

Because this is truly a shop after our own hearts, the shelves are also full of holistic body products, all natural candles and funky stationary.
