Bohemian lamps

Add some colour and warmth to your living space with one of these beautiful mosaic glass lamps. They come in a range of sizes and types, with each of them stunning and unique. As they are handmade, no two are exactly alike.

We’re not saying you should break out the patchouli and start wearing crystals around your neck, but for an instant lift to any room, you can’t do much better than these. You can buy them locally at Rugs Oriental.

Stay in charge

Who knew that wired charging was a thing of the past? We envision it to be like those infomercials at 2am where someone is almost strangling themselves with a phone cord and simply can’t get it to plug into their smartphone. Whatever will they do?? Enter the Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Dock for the iPhone and Apple Watch.

After a hard day at work/night out, rest your device on the pad and let it start charging. Just make sure your  model works with it before you buy or there will be tears.

Strawberry Hill forever

The view from the Island Outpost property, Strawberry Hill, should be a bucket list item for everyone. Set in the Blue Mountains, this collection of cottages with an infinity pool and Ayurvedic spa looks out over lush greenery to the capital town of Kingston below. At night, the twinkling lights of the latter are a sight to behold.

We highly recommend booking the Gordon Town Trail tour (wear hardy sneakers) and reserving the roundtrip ground transportation from the airport to the resort. Let’s just say the drivers have a lot of experience.

Vintage timepieces

Men, put those dive watches in the drawer and dust off the old watch that has been waiting for you to notice it. Vintage timepieces are hot right now. They don’t have to be expensive to make a statement and they don’t even have to be old. There are plenty of companies that produce retro watches to make you look like a boss. They can be classic, art deco or even ‘Deadwood’-on-a-chain-hanging- from-a-waistcoat level.

Perhaps just don’t go  swimming wearing your 1940s accessory.
