Founded by Jessica Abraham, whose trip to Timor-Leste first inspired her to create special pieces that could slide happily into your luggage and travel along with you wherever you go.
You have probably smelt the divine aromas of the Vedic-inspired scented oils by AYU. Perhaps, it was when you stepped into your favourite homeware store where the unique scent was floating through the air or a time when you inhaled a beautiful yet unusual scent that emanated from the nape of an obvious cool girl, who just […]
St Agni is a Byron Bay-based lifestyle brand with a cult-like following. Their stylish, simple and timeless accessories and apparel have global appeal with a spot-on aesthetic. We are big fans, let’s just say there are more than a few pairs of their iconic slides walking up and down the Smack Bang hallways.
Imagine waking up, going for a run, having a dip in the ocean, popping into the farmer’s market then walking into Comma, the massage bar in Byron Bay, that you run (complete with nine staff!) seven days a week. This blissful Byron lifestyle might sound like a bit of dream, but don’t get us wrong, Comma’s founder, Susie, has worked hard to get here.
Whenever we need a delicious recipe, we call up our dear friend, Jacob Leung. He is a food stylist, recipe developer and all-around magician in the kitchen – seriously, his food is pure magic! This week we enlisted him to help us share a little Christmas love.
By this stage, Mariah has made its way back into our top ten most played on Spotify (as well as our hearts), dad’s won the Chrissy ham raffle at the local bowling club and mum’s closet is filled to the brim with ‘just a few stocking fillers’.
Some people wear Crocs. Then there are others that just ooze style, as though it’s dripping off them into pools of monochrome elegance and Scandi polished perfection. Taliah Lowry falls into the latter category. She is one of my all-time favourite creative inspirations and even more than that – she’s one of the sweetest humans I’ve ever met.
Sitting pretty on Gould Street in Bondi, is the Nimble Activewear flagship store. A warm and friendly shopping destination that specialises in dreamy activewear that is as beautiful as it is functional. We were lucky enough to work with Vera and Katia on their website and jumped at the chance to visit them in store.
We first came across Commune on good ‘ol Instagram and were immediately enamoured by the Bondi retail space’s breezy interiors, pastel colour palette and array of drool-worthy products. Today we have a chat with co-founder, Loren about how the store was dreamt up, terracotta tiles and her love of natural materials.
Here at Smack Bang, we have been long-time fans of Lucy Folk’s work. The talented jeweller, designer and business woman recently took us on a tour of her Bondi Beach retail store, Playa and chatted to us about matcha, jewels and the importance of a good wifi connection.
Photographer, Sam Riles, is one of our fave creative ladies in Sydney. We love her laid-back style, fresh aesthetic and friendly face. Today, Sam takes us on a tour of her sunny home in Avalon on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and talks tea, palm trees and to-do lists.
We love chatting with like-minded business folk who are smashing it in their field and always find it super inspiring and intriguing to listen to what they have to say about where they started, what floats their boat and what their average day looks like. Today we are so stoked that we get to have a yarn with Beck Wadworth, who is the woman behind our fave stationery line, An Organised Life.
