Shop Tour: O.W.L – Objects We Love
It was a gloomy, stormy Saturday morning in Browns Bay (Auckland, New Zealand) – not a day you would fancy a shopping trip to be honest. More of a day to curl up under a thick, blanket and eat some white chocolate brownies with a hot cup of tea.

Local Shop Tour: My Eclectic Zone (MEZ)
Victoria Park Market has had a bit of a revamp recently (a $20,000,000 revamp to be precise.)

It all started when Richard and Matt were traveling around Asia and spotted this rather large, rather beautiful “Wave Lamp”. It was too heavy to justify bringing it home with him on the plane – so he figured he may as well buy a few of them, fill a shipping container up with more beautiful and eclectic pieces, and open a boutique. (As you do!!!) Business partner, Raktim, who is on the cutting edge of high fashion and luxury culture, came on board and brought his passion for design and sense of style. My Eclectic Zone was born.
