We love A girl, A style, a dreamy blog written by an Australian girl living in London and Cambridge filled with all things bright and beautiful. 

We especially love the fact that she rides a Pashley around town, sometimes filled with pink blooms to match her pink accessorised outfit.

A picnic for Melbourne Cup Day

We are taking an extra long weekend break from Friday 2 November to Thursday 8 November due to Melbourne Cup Day public holiday on Tuesday 6 November.  

The online store will still be open and receiving orders during this period and any orders will dispatch from Thursday 8 November. 

In the meantime, Melbourne Cup and the Spring Racing Carnival has got us thinking about picnics. More specifically, this bike pannier/picnic basket by Netherlands-based designer Jeriël Bobbe of Bloon Design.

‘Springtime’ has panels that rest over the top of your bike’s back rack like panniers. To set up your picnic, the pannier sides fold out to transform into square bench seats, while a top panel opens into a small table.

Bicycle Powered Popsicles by Six Strawberries

With the Australian summer setting in, we’re hoping to see more businesses like Six Strawberries springing up. 

Six Strawberries is a Seattle artisan ice pops company who pedal their mobile popsicle carts from neighbourhood to neighbourhood. They specialise in dairy-free popsicles (or ice lollies as the Brits call them)  with a focus on local ingredients and interesting flavors such as Peanut Butter and Jelly, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie and Thai Iced Tea.

sixstrawberries 400x600 Bicycle Powered Popsicles by Six Strawberries

It took six months of experiments in a home kitchen to devise the unique flavors, with the two founders learning the chemistry behind varying freezing temperatures, improving the workflow and of course lots of tastings. Their photo stream of happy customers is making us jealous!

And when the winter sets in, the founders go back to their day jobs – karaoke host and film maker.

Business Chic ditches the umbrella for a Rayncape

One of our most popular rain products is the Melbourne-designed Rayncape.  The Rayncape is a water-resistant cape that comes in its own little pouch, ready to pull out when the rains come. Fashion blogger Cheryl at Business Chic provides a review of the product here and here’s an example of the Rayncape in action:

Bicycle (Leporello) by Ugo Gattoni is a short book/booklet inspired by the 2012 London Olympic Games. In the book artist Ugo Gattoni intricately illustrates a cycle race through the streets of London. From elite athletes to cycle couriers, commuters, bankers, delivery boys, mums with kids, youths on stolen mountain bikes to fashionistas and hipsters on fixed gear bikes – pretty soon you will realize this is no ordinary road race!

Wingman instructions

The Wingman‘s sleeves are designed to be a snug fit so you need to insert the ribs with caution.

Whilst we have taken care to round the edges, some edges may remain, so be careful when handling and inserting (normal household scissors can be used to trim the ribs if you are worried).

Take particular care not to crease the ribs, rip the liner or stitching and make sure they are guided into the reinforced internal tarpaulin pouches at either end.

We recommend laying the Wingman flat on the floor. Insert the ribs in the top section first, and guide the ribs over the two horizontal struts. Ensure the ribs are pushed all the way home, into the reinforced pockets. Once the top section has been inserted, you need to insert the bottom section. This requires you to carefully bend and insert the bottom end of the rib, in a controlled manner, and ensure it reaches the reinforced pocket at the end. Once the batten is in place, velcro the liner flap in place to hide the rib.

Check out this video if you would like to see a demonstration.

Review of Twowheelcool Airhead Helmet Liner

Airhead in BusiChic helmet Review of Twowheelcool Airhead Helmet Liner

Business fashion blogger and commuter cyclist Business Chic reviews the Airhead Helmet Liner made by Australian design company Twowheelcool.

The Airhead Helmet Liner claims to prevent the dreaded helmet hair. Here’s what Cheryl had to say about it:

  • It’s super easy to pop an Airhead in your helmet! Simply have the bouncy spikes facing outwards so they can create space to get some air moving through your hair as you cycle.
  • Normally, the moment I pull off my helmet I’d find that my fringe is stuck to my forehead and the crown of my head all sweaty. Take a look at my day using the Airhead!:

BusiChic cycle outfit after Airhead Review of Twowheelcool Airhead Helmet Liner

  • It’s comfortable. The “spikes” that stick out from the Airhead Helmet Liner are pretty bouncy and just buffered against my hair; thereby creating the spaces through which air could come in and cool my scalp.
  • The Airhead Helmet Liner is easily removed and can be rinsed and dried or wiped down. Very easy to clean.

You can buy the Airhead Helmet Liner in a range of colours for $29.95 + shipping.
