Apparent from every ‘girly’ movie and TV series since the dawn of time, it’s no secret that retail therapy has super powers. Nobody knows quite how they work, but by hitting the shops heals all – some even swear you it can mend a broken heart! Fortunately, there’s more to enjoy than just shopping at Casuarina Square, so retail therapy takes a whole new meaning. Join us for the ultimate day of ‘self-therapy’ with these ultimate activities you simply must know about.
Carrie Bradshaw once said, “shopping is my cardio”, and boy, was she right! Clocking up the steps and dashing from store to store totally counts as interval training – not to mention the heart-pumping moments when you find the perfect pair of shoes. Between that and all the heavy bag lifting, there’s every possibility your calves feel like you’ve run a marathon by the time you’re done. If you ask us, that’s every excuse to head to Nail Lovers for a new coat of SNS, and for your aching pins, Body Bar are ready and waiting to melt your muscles back into shape. Ahhh.
Feed the soul
All that “cardio” and pampering will certainly have got your appetite fired up. Casuarina Square’s brand new precinct, The Quarter, welcomes you to dine in style at one of a number of tasty eateries gathered around the central fountain. If you’re just looking for a simple pit-stop and re-fuel, The Coffee Club has your caffeine hit just moments away. For the ravenous, your options are endless. Grill’d, Groove Train, Nando’s and Mad Mex Cantina offer flavoursome dining in a relaxed environment – and your trip to Max Brenner for dessert can be our little secret.
Sweat it out
Also in The Quarter is Edge Health Club. If your retail therapy didn’t quite hit your fitness goal for the day, smash out your workout of choice at Edge – it’s open 24 hours. If you’re in a rush to get your feast on, try this 15 minute fat burner, or for a longer workout, there’s an impressive, Les Mills-packed group fitness timetable to sink your glutes into.
Get a new look
The perfect partner to a retail therapy experience has got to be a fresh face of make-up. Head to Napoleon Perdis or The Body Shop, and have their expert artists show you how to work some new products into your look. Not only will you emerge red-carpet-ready, you’ll learn a trick or two for your daily beauty routine.
Naturally, the core of your retail therapy experience has to be some serious credit-card-bashing. Casuarina Square’s stores have something to satisfy that retail craving you’ve been fighting since Christmas – and hey, January is over, which means the spending ban is too. Browse our range of stores and start mapping out your day so you can shop smart.
