On a recent family holiday Little Fashionista and I stumbled across a girly wonderland in San Remo, Victoria. In It's a Girl Thing Lysa Kiely has created a pink paradise for girls of all ages - a treasurer trove of girly gifts and bits and bobs.
Locally produced crochet coin purses and hair clips lie next to glam mirror finished jewellery boxes (couldn't resist picking one up for myself!). Unusual but elegant homewares as well as indulgent bath and body products make leaving this adorable little cottage without pulling out the Visa a difficult task indeed.
It's a Girl Thing houses a number of different rooms, each with an individual theme of sorts. Some areas are for the young and young at heart with an array of fairy and ballerina costumes as well as furry little friends to keep the younger princesses happy. There are also rooms dedicated to the more adult woman, complete with colourful silky summer mini dresses and a range of fun costume jewellery.
For those looking for more than a bit of a shop, It's a Girl Thing offers personalised tailored weekends away - with Lysa and her crew taking care of as much or as little of the organising as your heart desires. They can organise bus collection and travel to San Remo, accommodation for up to 18, a personal chef, pamper sessions and even Burlesque classes for the slightly more adventurous.

And men, don't be frightened to head into this sherbet hued land to purchase your favourite lady a gift or two, Lysa assures me that It's a Girl Thing is "boy-friendly" too!
