RE­VIVE Noth­ing makes us feel bet­ter than look­ing after our skin. After an in­vig­o­rat­ing class at Kcöre Pi­lates Stu­dio, head into The Fa­cial­ist for a Spring Clean Fa­cial (trust us, you’ll be glow­ing). City Works De­pot re­ally is a haven for pam­per­ing – if you need to detox a lit­tle more, a few doors down you’ll find The Raw Kitchen for a freshly squeezed juice. Pop it in the Honda HR-V’s cup holder and you’re good to go.

EAT If you’re after a leisurely bite, sit down at Odettes; their sig­na­ture whipped feta is a go-to for any big brekky. For a healthy take­out lunch, &Sushi is your best bet: their de­light­ful kim­chi adds a Korean twist to Ja­pa­nese dishes.

TREAT There’s noth­ing quite like a fresh bunch of flow­ers next to your bed. The Botanist does ev­ery­thing from pretty posies to ex­trav­a­gant bou­quets. After, jot into Dry & Tea for a blowdry and a lick of pol­ish at Pop Nails.

SHOP After pe­rus­ing the pretty jewels at Zoe and Mor­gan, head out of the CBD to Orakei Bay

Vil­lage for some re­tail ther­apy. While in­ner city traf­fic can be manic, the Honda HR-V’s City Brake As­sist (a func­tion that helps pre­vent nose-to-tails in low-speed zones) is a re­as­sur­ing way to get from A to B. Once you’re in Orakei, get your fit­ness fix at Peo­ple Like Us – they’ve got the goods for ac­tivewear – then treat your­self to a new can­dle at Fa­ther Rab­bit. Fin­ish the ex­cur­sion with some on-trend home­wares from The Block NZ 2014 win­ners Alex and Cor­ban Wells’ store, Alex & Cor­ban.

Lit­tle de­tails make a bigim­pact – the Honda HR-V RS’s black chrome de­tail such as the sportsgrille is no ex­cep­tion.THE RAW KITCHEN
