Resene Post Page Top

Let's be friends!

The books we're reading, the vibrators we're using, the rants we're having and more in our weekly EDM.

Capsule’s eclectic collection of the best of new products in fashion, beauty, food and lifestyle that are hitting shelves this month – you’re welcome!

The Warehouse H&H Recycled Women’s Hooded Puffer Jacket

I (Kelly) got sent one of these jackets from The Warehouse as part of a PR mailer, and to be honest I wasn’t expecting much – how wrong I was. This jacket is SOFT. This jacket is WARM. This jacket looks effing CUTE. It’s even got outside pockets with domes so your phone doesn’t fall out. It’s got a removable hood. And I LOVE the sage green colour (there’s three others too.) And best of all? It’s $65.

Glasshouse Fragrances Heavy Petal Candle

If you’ve been reading Capsule for more than a beat you’ll know we’re OBSESSED with candles – and one of our fragrances houses Glasshouse Fragrances absolutely pumps out special scents that always surprise and delight. Luckily for me, who adores sandalwood scents, this one is going straight to the pool room (read: office desk) with a smoked tulip (INTERESTING) and sandalwood fragrance in a nod to the speakeasies of yesteryear.

Church Road’s The Feast of Five

Yes we know this is technically an event, but we’re super-excited for Church Road’s Feast of Five,  sensational wine event series created in collaboration with multisensory explorer, Dr Jo Burzynska.

Taking place in Auckland, Wellington and Queenstown across July and August, the discovery series will showcase how, by stimulating your senses in different ways, you can draw different notes and aromas from the same glass of Church Road. Perfectly matched with a five-course degustation menu, which has been carefully designed by New Zealand’s most acclaimed chefs, guests will discover how colour, shape, sound and texture can alter the experience of the wine, and will also celebrate 125 years (!!) of Church Road wine.

Dermalogica Daily Milkfoliant

From the experts who brought you Daily Microfoliant – the iconic exfoliating powder – comes a new powder exfoliant that smooths and soothes all skin conditions. Joining the Foliant Franchise, Daily Milkfoliant is clinically proven to smooth skin calmly; with 90% of consumers having significant smoothness after just one use. It’s a vegan formula with oat and coconut, which activates upon contact with water, this calming polish makes exfoliating peaceful. And I (Kelly) can attest to its quality – I got to try out the formula before launch and my skin is nice and exfoliated – and less red than usual which is a huge win.

Goju Wellness Shots

Ah, it’s a real indicator of age that THESE are the shots we’re looking forward to the most, isn’t it – but that’s life, baby. We’ve been obsessed with these little beauties of Goju that give you a real shot of goodness without any additives or preservatives. Choose from the ginger shots for general winter health; charcoal for detoxing (there may or may not be a few in the fridge in case of any hangovers) and our personal favourite, turmeric which helps inflammation.

Comfortable, thin, and super absorbent – they’ve mixed superior, patented fabric technology with gorgeous design to come up with absorbent undies that exceed exceptions and look pretty darn gorgeous at the same time.
