Indulge in guilt-free desserts after dark with Kiss the Berry’s new Up Late menu

Choosing between indulging in dessert and maintaining a summer bod is a constant mind battle.

Well, friends, gluttony doesn't have to be the devil. Ever-popular acai joint Kiss the Berry now transforms into a dessert hang by night, launching its new Up Late menu full of sweet treats that are completely guilt free.

Want to take this outside? Of course you do ... more

Adorn your walls with reclaimed timber designs by Kirralee & Co.

She turns unwanted wood and furniture into hanging wall vases, knives, earrings, shelves and picture frames under her namesake business Kirralee & Co. Let's get you acquainted. more
