Popping up
Britomart's Australis House is set to host two new pop-up boutiques, with temporary stores for BoConcept and Citta Design opening on October 24. BoConcept's store will celebrate the Danish brand's 10th year in New Zealand, featuring functionally furnished room settings (pictured above), while the Citta Design boutique will house furniture, homewares and accessories from the brand's Grecian-inspired summer collection.

Rocking the regions
Hamilton also channels New York tomorrow, with beauty legends Bobbi Brown and M.A.C. unveiling studios on Farmers' enhanced beauty floor at the reopening of Centre Place. M.A.C.'s New York-designed 45sq m counter will open with the glam rock inspired event M.A.C Rocks Colour, extending the brand's North Island reach outside Auckland and Wellington, while the Bobbi Brown studio features the cosmetic queen's industrial chic styling and offers services such as Instant Pretty, showing customers how to refresh their look in just five minutes.

Gone to the dogs
Meadowlark has released new designs in their SPCA ranges, with women's T-shirts, tote bags and mugs printed with a cute Rolling Stones-inspired visual. The jewellery brand created an exclusive Love Cats collection for the charity last year, but wanted to create something especially for dog fans. The pieces are available now from the SPCA website here, with the "Rolling Bones" T-Shirt for $49.99, a tote for $19.99 and a mug for $24.99. All proceeds go to the SPCA.

NYC anyone?
Nothing like a little New York getaway to fuel that shopping addiction. Buy four or more Ezibuy items in one transaction this month and you may be on your way to the Big Apple courtesy of a $15,000 dream trip.

Tidal Dress, $249.99 from Moochi.


In store
Moochi's summer collection, titled Point Break, is in store. Taking inspiration from 90s surf culture and high-tech sportswear, the collection features tie-dye, monochromes and splashes of orange in sporty fabrics such as mesh, denim and neoprene. We love the simple but bold orange "Tidal" dress ($249.99). Shop the collection online here.
