MOUNT MAUN­GANUI

Nadia - - MY LIFE -

The re­laxed beach vibe in Mount Maun­ganui seeps into ur­ban life. Skip your usual sea­side walk for a drive about town – and head home with an abun­dance of treats piled up on the roomy back seat of your HR-V.

TREAT

Noth­ing says ‘week­end’ like a fresh bunch of flow­ers picked up from your lo­cal florist. While florist Flowere€e is a li€le out of the main cen­tre, the HR-V’S handy in­built nav­i­ga­tion will make the drive a breeze. When you’re there, grab a cake mix for a spot of bak­ing later; The Caker’s Co­conut Rasp­berry Mix makes bak­ing su­per sim­ple. Sprin­kle it with rose petals for a spe­cial touch.

EAT

A‡er pick­ing up a bou­quet, pop into Heath Street Cafe for a scone and cof­fee. It’s one shop down, so you don’t have to give up your park. If you’re a‡er a tasty pas­try, call in for a heav­enly crois­sant at Elspeth Bak­ery.

RE­VIVE

With the weather ge€ing warmer, the wa­ter is look­ing ever more en­tic­ing. Rather than face the sweaty gym slog, book a stand-up pad­dle­board­ing les­son with As­sault Board­rid­ing Tau­ranga. A‡er­wards, head to the Mount Hot Pools for a steamy dip. Your body will thank you.

SHOP

Sis­ters & Co is the per­fect pick for all your de­signer needs. If your home needs to be spruced up, Pa­per Plane is filled with ob­jects of de­sire so drill into good de­sign with some fresh cush­ions, ce­ram­ics and can­dles. For a fur­ther dose of beauty, con­tem­plate the art­works at Com­pose Art Gallery.
