You know you have a tough life when you find yourself sipping champagne and shopping with a 10% discount at on a Wednesday evening at Brisbane’s Blue Bungalow.

I guess someone has to do it!

Walking into the warehouse-style space in Newstead, I am greeted with an abundance of colour, silk and smells that instantly make me feel I am by the sea (or should be, in a hurry).

If only I had a bottomless budget.

Blue Bungalow is a haven for any avid beach goer and is the perfect place to pick up a special item for any woman in your life. I have already ticked of my sister, mother, best friend & my partner’s mother alone. If you’re struggling for Christmas inspiration – this is your one stop shop, I promise.

Many of the beautiful items are sourced from Lee Merchandising on Vulture Street in South Brisbane; with one of their key labels, Solito is designed.

There is jewellery, there are kaftans, there are home wares and art; shoes & gift packs. What more could you ask for!

Highly recommend popping in & checking out this amazing store, I am most definitely a convert!


Until next time…
