Dog Friendly Cafe

Wendy from The Base Licensed Cafe

Just sharing my amusement at the collection of small dogs that were visiting the Base Cafe when a film maker was there doing a documentary about the cafe staff. They made a beeline for the camera man and befriended him and managed to wriggle their way into featuring in the documentary haha. Sometimes there are more dogs than people outside the cafe. The chef told me he's going to put dog burgers on the menu. I was a bit worried about that for a moment until he explained that the burgers would be mini beef burgers, for the dogs to eat!

Are you a fan of fast fashion?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Many of us grew up flocking to Glassons, Hallenstein's, Cotton On and Just Jeans for our hardy perennials - jeans, t-shirts, summer dresses - and some of us still do.

But we're increasingly becoming aware that buying a $20 t-shirt that won't last the distance isn't that great for the environment.

While some of us are pledging to only buy second hand or to invest in statement pieces - more expensive items that will last a long time- not all of us have that luxury.

We're wanting to speak to someone who isn't giving up their fast fashion any time soon, whether it's for economic or style reasons, personal choice or indifference to the environment. Maybe you're a student who likes the choice chain store fashion brings, or perhaps you're a parent whose children are growing too fast to risk splashing out on expensive clothing.

If this sounds like you, please email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz.
