Listen Up, ‘90s Kids | An OTT Nostalgic Pop-Up Is Headed To Auckland

Ain’t no doubt about it: the 90s were legitimately the best decade ever. We mean, what’s not to love about jamming the Spice Girls dressed head-to-toe in denim?! What a time to be alive.

For an epic walk down memory lane, a nostalgia-filled pop up is heading to Auckland and you (and your double denim) need to be there. Introducing the blast from the past that is Taste. Shop. Play.

For one weekend only, Westfield Manukau, Westfield Riccarton, Westfield Albany and Westfield St Lukes will transform into your ultimate childhood playground. Think: dance battles, a unicorn station and—the best part—jelly decorating with none other than THE Jellyologist.

The magic will be kicking off on September 8 and 9 with unmissable activities across both malls. At Westfield St Lukes you’ll find bespoke creations by THE Jellyologist (will stop with the caps now) and have the chance to make your very own jelly treat. There will also be a glitter-loaded unicorn station with face painting and rainbow hair makeovers for the kids and the kids at heart (you and I both).

Westfield Manukau will also be going off with a performance from Rewa All Star—aka the high school team behind this viral video. There will also be a dance battle event (double points for Spice Girls dance routines) and a sunglasses decorating workshop for kids.

Meanwhile if your local is Westfield Riccarton, you better check into their spring styling sessions as well as their express hair and make up pop ups for free mini makeovers. 

The 90s-themed weekend is also a chance to kiss your winter coat goodbye as you check out the latest spring trends from your fave stores. We’ll have one of everything, thanks.

So, recruit your childhood bestie, blast Spice Up Your Life and head to Westfield this weekend!
