Last minute Melbourne Cup shopping

Melbourne Cup is fast approaching, and we are sitting here pondering how it is already that time of year again. In a few short weeks it will be Christmas, then New Year's Eve, then…..wait, we are getting ahead of ourselves.

Although you may have let your Melbourne Cup fashion shopping pass you by, we have great news. With express shipping from our Sydney warehouse, we can get a wide range of unique accessories out to you in time for the cup celebrations if you order by this Friday!

To make a fashion statement at the Melbourne Cup this year, pair one of your existing outfits with a beautiful hat, piece of jewellery or a bag that has been carefully selected from a range of ethical producers throughout South East Asia.

Big straw floppy hat

Putawan hat – This large, floppy straw hat is made in Thailand by Putawan Dezign. Not only will it keep the sun off your face, it will also brighten up any outfit as it is available in five vibrant colours; orange, red, purple, green and pink. Make a statement this Melbourne Cup day!


Embed pouch

Embed Pouch – Keep your hands free for all the wonderful food and drinks available at your Melbourne Cup celebrations with this gorgeous pouch! Designed in Italy and produced in Cambodia, this pouch is created using leather sofa remnants and recycled fishing net. It certainly will be the talking point at your Melbourne Cup gathering!

Natru exotic black and white clutch bag

Natru Exotic Black and White Clutch Bag - This cute bag can take you from day to night, with alternative uses as a purse, make up bag or pencil case once Melbourne Cup is over!


Six level bracelet

Six Level Bracelet – This unique spiral bracelet is handmade from the seeds that fall from the native trees in Siem Reap. The selection of seeds is a painstaking process - each one has to be a perfect size, shape and symmetry to fit the design. Tiny holes are then drilled by hand through each seed. This bracelet is available in brown, white and red, which are the actual colours of the seeds as they fall from the tree.

Zsiska Luce Red Necklace

Zsiska Luce Red Necklace - Let the light shine on you with the striking Zsiska necklace! Handmade in Thailand, it features bright red resin chunky drops which adorn an adjustable black rope. After the Melbourne Cup has finished, this will be the perfect accessory for your Christmas parties!

Zsiska Stud Earrings - It is hard to go past these beautiful gold resin stud earrings with a silver backing. Real gold leaf is used in the creation of these stunning pieces. These versatile earrings are made in Thailand.

If you had some extra time to look around, we suggest engrossing yourself in our carefully curated jewellery collection to see what else is on offer. And don’t forget to return with your Melbourne Cup winnings!

Meditate With Monks

While the older monks speak English fluently, many of the younger ones are just learning and use the sessions to practice their English.

Lasting memories are created when learning something new, so live, love and most importantly, laugh and do it together.

It's all about sharing those lasting memories.
