Channelling our inner Fräulein Maria and sharing some of our SA faves! 

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: our sweet little Adelaide is bursting with incredible businesses for us all to enjoy. Here are some brands we’ve been crushing on lately…

Sydney Street

One of our regular go-tos for all things clothing! In particular, we’re big fans of their warm winter coats and gorgeous accessories. Sydney Street is all about ageless, timeless and effortless fashion, so you’ll find plenty of quality staples, as well as some bright and colourful statement pieces from local and international brands such as NYDJ, Elm, Betty Basics and Zjoosh. If you can’t make it to their Unley Road store, good news — you can shop online!



With over 120 tea blends to choose from, you’re bound to find your new fave! This local brand brings you the taste of tea from all around the world, packing their quality loose leaf tea into compostable bags in the heart of Adelaide. And when you shop online, you’ll receive a free sample with every order. Who knows what blend you might fall in love with next? A cosy mug of T BAR TEA is the perfect accompaniment when reading the latest issue of the Adelady magazine… just saying!


Honey Bang Bang

It’s Asian-fusion with a twist. This colourful gem in Littlehampton is BANGING good! It’s impossible to choose a favourite dish — your belly will celebrate no matter what you order. Keep things fresh with their Kingfish Sashimi, or treat your tastebuds to some spicy, melt-in-your-mouth Red Duck Curry, before finishing it off with a Rhubarb Margarita. But don’t let us tell you how to live your life… go and try everything on the menu for yourself!


Kimbolton Wines

What’s your drink of choice — a crisp white, a warming red, or a can of rosé spritz? Kimbolton Wines tick, tick, tick every box with their beautiful range of wines available online or in their unique Langhorne Creek cellar door made from shipping containers. Take the short 50-minute drive and reward yourself with a wine tasting and a local produce platter while overlooking the vineyards from their rooftop viewing deck. Then grab a take-home Grapes For Good bottle to do your part for wildlife conservation!

Ashton Valley Fresh

Fresh is right! Crack a bottle of Ashton Valley Fresh Juice and you’ll be sipping on sunshine — straight from their orchards to your lips. This premium fruit juice has no added flavours, colours, sugars or concentrates — just good, old-fashioned fruit juice. The best part? It’s sustainably made and 100% Australian! We’re big fans of their sparkling apple and pineapple juice.


Divine Domes McLaren Vale

This place is so good we took our entire team here at the end of 2023! This incredible glamping accommodation site in McLaren Vale features four unique, fullyfurnished luxury domes with outlooks across rolling vineyards. It’s ideal for romancing your partner or booking the whole place out for a special event. Evenings can be spent sitting by the in-dome wood heater and stargazing from the comfort of your own bed.


Seafire Beach House

Experience the wild coastline of southern Yorke Peninsula, from Seafire Beach House! Privately located on 300 secluded oceanfront acres, this stunning five-star holiday hideaway is perched above its own postcard-perfect sandy beach. Make memories with your nearest and dearest, as Seafire is tailor-made for just four people, with heavenly king suites, a gourmet kitchen, outdoor entertaining facilities and concierge services. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Yorkes from your own luxury getaway.


Melba’s Chocolates

It’s hard to choose a favourite from this family-owned business. Known for their iconic Chocolate Bilbies, epic Christmas Hampers and their Giant Speckles… but we’re calling it: Melba’s makes the best Rocky Road in SA! Make a day trip up to their factory in Woodside, to enjoy a hot choccy with a side of choccy, while browsing all the other choccies. Or pay a visit to their new shop and dessert bar in Angaston. Um, hello heaven!


Casa Billie

Sleeping up to six people, this luxurious stay in Aldinga will have you believing you’re on the palm tree-lined beaches of California! Every element of this gorgeous home is styled to perfection, with curves, greenery and soft pink hues throughout. Wander out the door, grab an iced latte from Pearl Cafe and then soak up the rays on one of the best beaches in SA, which is just 100 metres from your door!

Lucia’s Fine Foods & Charcuterie Bar

It wouldn’t be a Friday in the office without Lauren asking, “Who’s ready for a panini?” And of course, she’s talking about Lucia’s Fine Foods in the Adelaide Central Market! It’s hard to pick a fave, but we’re big fans of the #1 (prosciutto with buffalo mozzarella, fresh tomato and fresh basil), the #5 (sopressa, Lucia’s olive paste, fresh basil and fresh tomato), or if you’re a tuna fan, the #4 (tuna, preserved lemon, aioli, fresh tomato and chilli) is also a winner. Whatever you choose, you really can’t go wrong!



Discover vibrant and timeless statement pieces that are inspired by the joy of dressing up. Your perfect statement dress awaits at Binny! Known for limitededition collections, unique prints and attention to detail, these are beautifully crafted forever pieces intended to be worn time and time again. In our humble opinion, Binny never misses — find them from 10am – 5pm, Monday – Saturday at 139A King William Rd, Unley.


Vale Restaurant and Bar

A McLaren Vale dining experience not to be missed! Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or want to make an occasion special, Vale Restaurant and Bar is the place to be. Their menu is filled with delectable bites, so we recommend booking the tasting menu and letting their chef feed you in a setting surrounded by vineyards. Start things off with their Vale IPA Country Loaf accompanied by Smoked Bone Marrow Butter. #NoRegrets.



It’s dangerous being neighbours with such a divine business! Every piece inside Etienne’s double doors on Unley Road is chosen with intention. Here, you’ll find homewares, books, jewellery and endless items from local and international creators like Dinosaur Designs, Maison Balzac, Mud Australia and Aesop, to bring little slices of art into your home. It’s bliss and you’ll love it! Etienne’s also an excellent place to buy pressies for your loved ones.


MANE Day Spa

When life feels a touch overwhelming, why not disappear — right into the comfort of MANE Day Spa in Mount Barker? This sanctuary is styled to perfection and will transport you to another world through the music, smell and atmosphere… and that’s without even starting your treatment! With massages, body therapy, facials and more, you’ll be whisked into a deep zen. And for that special someone in your life — they do gift vouchers too!


Copper Trails Bike Hire

Copper Trails Bike Hire is the Yorke Peninsula’s home of all things bikes. Whether you prefer a classic bike or an easy-peasy e-bike, you’re free to explore the Copper Coast along the brand-new bike track that runs all the way from Moonta to Wallaroo. They even organise to pick your bikes up at each end in case you’re only wanting to ride one way! We’re completely in love with this family-owned biz, so book your bikes and have an epic adventure with the fam.


Beresford Estate

We know and love them for their wine, but did you know you can actually stay right where the wine magic happens? Choose from one of their Villas, Grand Reserve Suites or Reserve Suites — whatever you settle on, you can look forward to some extreme luxury set among the gorgeous vines in McLaren Flat. You’ll be maxo-relaxo in no time!
