Things we love: autumn edition

Posted on

Want a sneak peek of what the HC Team is currently lusting over? 

Here’s what we’re crushing on for AW19.


Nothing wreaks havoc on skin like a change in season and after a long, humid summer, the autumn wind can be a nasty surprise. But as the temperature drops, nothing is more delicious than curling up with a face mask and a good book.

Origins Flower Fusion sheet masks pack a serious punch and there’s one to suit every skin concern. We recommend their Orange Radiance-Boosting mask to instantly hydrate and brighten.

RRP: $10 per mask from Mecca Maxima, Canberra Centre.

HerCanberra CEO + Founder Amanda loves TEA GARDEN’S I’VE BEAN DRINKING


It’s vanilla ice cream in a cup, but it’s warm and it’s tea. Ok, so maybe it’s not vanilla ice cream but Tea Garden’s I’ve Bean Drinking is naturally creamy and sweet in flavour.

Combining Taiwanese Milky Oolong tea with vanilla and marshmallow root, this gorgeous brew is perfect for the sweet tooth who is trying to cut down on the sweetness without sacrificing any of the fun!

RRP: $16.95 – $29.95 from or visit the website to find a stockist near you.

Production Manager Belinda loves Levi’s® Original Trucker Jacket


I love the cooler months because it’s denim jacket season! I adore them—I love their versatility and I love being able to layer.

This year I’ve planned ahead and grabbed myself the Levi’s® Original Trucker Jacket. It’s a timeless classic staple that is a must in your AW19 wardrobe.

RRP: $149.95 from the Levi’s® store, Canberra Centre.

Graphic Designer Katie loves On Running’s CLOUDFLOW


As someone who doesn’t love running, the idea of wearing shoes that resemble clouds sounded too good to pass up. Not only do they look fast, they feel fast and are super lightweight.

Each cloud-cushioned step makes you realise why they are the shoe that broke the Ironman world record.

RRP: $229.00 from The Runners Shop, Gungahlin and Phillip. 

Senior Journalist Laura loves the OLLI ELLA SUITCASE


Planning an escape to somewhere warm now that the weather has cooled down? This Olli Ella suitcase can be wheeled to and from airport gates, stations or around the garden by small folk two to six-years-old. Not just for travel, it’s also the perfect place to store treasures and toys (and nothing looks sweeter than one of these trunks in a bedroom or playroom!)

RRP: $79, Tip You’re It, Braddon.



Journalist Dolly Alderton has been on her fair share of terrible dates. In her debut memoir, she writes honestly (and hilariously) about what happens when your love life doesn’t go exactly to plan.

Everything I Know About Love is an ode to the messy, glorious years of early adulthood and its portrayal of modern relationships might even leave you feeling nostalgic about your own romantic misadventures.

RRP: $22.99 from all good bookshops.



As an Anglophile and a fan of street art, I’m completely captivated by London artist Rugman AKA Anthony McEwan. I’ve had my eye on his metallic prints, featuring tattoos and British icons, since I discovered his works in a little boutique on Carnaby Street in Soho last year. What better way to celebrate our recent move to London than with an homage to Her Majesty The Queen? Inject a little Anglomania into your home with a Rugman print of your own.

RRP: $181.70, available from



When I left home, my beloved mum bought me a large Le Creuset cast iron casserole pot in which to start my independent cooking adventures. That pot has seen some action in its time. Because they last forever, and kitchen colour schemes change, and because my growing family requires larger meals from different-sized pots, I feel quite justified in adding to my Le Creuset collection.

Anything served out of a glossy yellow casserole pot tastes better, but the classic blue seems to work with everything. And I half expect to be passing on these beautiful vessels to my children.

RRP: $429 from Le Creuset, Level 1, Canberra Centre.
