Coco and Frida

This month we would love to introduce you to a beautiful new stockist;

Coco and Frida is a concept shop that brings hair styling, fashion, lifestyle and homewares from boutique designers to one location. 

 Located in the beautiful seaside town of Queenscliff, this little treasure haven is sure to leave you feeling inspired.

What started as a makeup and hair salon catering for clients who wanted a one-on-one boutique experience, over time has grown into a concept shop that inspires people to express themselves through styling.  

 

 Tammy Honey, the creator behind Coco and Frida, has a natural flair as a stylist and loves looking for boutique designers to add to her growing collection. The concept shop also has its own range of soy candles and jewellery. 

 

The name Coco and Frida comes from a game she created to get her two young daughters to wash their hair. She soon realised that it was the best way to describe her as a stylist. Coco reflects her classical influences in life and Frida her left of centre inspiration to life.

Our featured stockist this month is the beautiful:
 
 
Located in the picturesque Victorian town of Daylesford, this store has a lot to offer.  
 
 
Stepping inside you'll find a beautiful haven that is a wonderland of inspiring treasures as well as great coffee and treats.  Moss and Burrows is the one-stop-shop for locally sourced pieces and a mix of old and new.
 
 
 Daylesford is a great place to visit at any time of year, but particularly during the cooler months when a walk around the beautiful lake and surrounds followed by some shopping can't be beaten.  The region is also well known for a variety of natural therapy centres and spas and has many great walking tracks and camping spots if that takes your fancy. 
 
 
 
This beautiful haven is sure to inspire.
                                                                          

 

Moss and Burrows showcase beautiful objects by creative people from the Daylesford area and around the world. You'll find gifts for him, for her and for children as well as apparel, footwear and vintage industrial homewares.  Be sure to stop by - you won't be disappointed!

We celebrated HB's 2nd Birthday, our little boys 3rd Birthday and ate ridiculous amounts of cake.
 
Had some great write ups, especially in Fashion Journal and Frankie Mag.

Spring has sprung which means not only should we start to see a bit more sun, flowers will start blossoming and we can again start to enjoy cheeky vinos in the sun with the smell of freshly cut lawn in the air (apologies to the unfortunate hay fever sufferers).  If all that's not enough to make you love spring, it gets better: You can now shop our new   Spring/Summer 15-16: Elements Collection!
 
Available at your fav HB stockist now (or very soon!) and online here.

We hope you love it as much as we do!
