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.
