WARNING – guys will probably find this post pretty boring… haha. But if you want to be better gift givers (and I know most of you are pretty crappy when it comes to that department – sorry, but it’s true), then you better read on!
OK, so I have a serious problem… there is this shop in Gardens Shopping centre called “The Pause Room”… and I want to own EVERYTHING they sell there! I am drawn to that shop like a moth to a flame… my brain just turns into mush and I can just stand there for hours, staring at all the pretty, shiny things while drool is dripping out of the side of my mouth.
They stock lots of beautiful decor items, handmade ceramics, bath goodies, jewellery, hand bags and… well pretty much anything a girl could ever desire (except shoes).
Just look at how damn pretty this shop is:
Here you have a closer view of some of the ceramics & jewellery – oh and they also have the coolest gift tags & cards!
This is what you see as you enter the shop:
And here is the awesome bath & body goodies wall:
This also happens to be a favourite shop of mine to pick up birthday gifts for friends & family. Although, every time I buy something as a gift here – I do end up going through a bit of an internal battle… “Should I just keep it for myself? It’s soooo pretty. They will never know… I can just give them soap on a rope instead…” haha. Mostly I am able to go through with it and let these special items go to another home. But I do clench onto that package pretty damn hard before finally handing it over.
Here’s some of their ceramic items that I already have at home – I totally love this red heart range of theirs with these beautiful sayings on them:
Some smaller bowls:
And finally, the new addition to my collection, which I snatched up this evening! Six of these stunning green heart mugs:
They weren’t cheap… but you have to remember that they’re hand made and crafted with love. Say it with me… Aaahhhhhh. I had my first cup of tea in one and it tasted better than ever!
SALE ALERT: The Pause Room sale kicked off today and is running until Saturday! So what are you waiting for!?! Get your asses over there! Sadly my lovely mugs weren’t part of the sale… but I didn’t really care! I still really really love them…
Anyhoo, let me know if you wanna come over for a spot of tea! (or even a coffee – I could even spike it with something if you’d prefer) My fancy pants mugs are dying to be shown off…
PS: Forgot to mention – they do FREE gift wrapping. Yay! Perfect for lazy folks like myself or for the men out there who think a plastic packet will do the job…
