Summers last call...

It’s The Fiiiiinal Countdown!

Slip on some sun screen and slap on a hat party people – summer’s not over just yet! With the cooler months creeping up on us like a dark shadow, there’s no better way to spend your last few days of summer than a day out in the good ol’ Aussie sun (if Cyclone Marcia hasn’t stolen it all)! Buckle little Eddie in tight, get your car keys ready and warm up those vocal cords; you’ll be singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long with these HOT essentials!

We’ve put together a list of the best hits of Summer ’15 to get you organised and onto that wide open road. So what are you waiting for!? Your adventure awaits…


First and foremost kids, we need to have a little talk on sun safety. Every Queenslander knows too well the sting of a bad sunburn after a long day under the harsh summer rays. Luckily Mecca Cosmetica have got you covered (no really) with their To Save Body 50+ sunscreen. This is the ultimate body guard providing advanced protection against UVA & UVB rays with four hours of water-resistance. This little tube of happiness is a non-oily and non-whitening formula and will keep the whole family away from ever needing to rummage through the medicine cupboard in search of that hidden Aloe Vera gel!


Add a little spice to your holiday with this wild and raw print, Eyasi Stillness, from Camilla’s geeeenius S/S 14/15 Swim Collection. As a playmaker in Australian fashion design, Camilla Franks drew her inspiration from her recent travels to the Vietnamese Hill Tribes. Celebrating the vibrant, wild and unseen beauty of nature, this print will take you to a summer oasis far beyond our Australian shores!

Find these gorgeous pieces at the Camilla boutique, here on James St.


“Muummm are we thereeee yet?” Spoil the kids and keep them on the hush hush with some delicious…I’ll say that again, DELICIOUS, freshly baked goods courtesy of Press. While you’re there, don’t forget to grab a coffee for the road!


Did someone turn up the heat! Update his wardrobe with a funky new pair of trunks by Okanui for all the afternoons spent down at the beach. You’ll find these babies at Digby’s menswear on James St. Made from 100% hand printed cotton, these Okanui shorts are built to last and will certainly leave a lasting impression.


Grab some sweet summer shades from Bailey Nelson before you hit the highway. We love Joyce which is a statement-making frame that demands attention. Designed to fit most face sizes and shapes, the thin, rounded frame fuses minimalistic elegance with attention grabbing detail that will exude confidence wherever you might find yourself. Can you ever have too many sunglasses? I think we all know the answer to that
