BUT FIRST, KOFFI
No coffee, no workee? Ensure you kick-start your day with the right pick-me-up thanks to Clarendon's Koffi Bar, open 6 days a week, where the coffee is just as sensational as the dessert. Fuel your system for a long day of planning ahead with a nutritious and delicious breakky, or after you've had a coffee - come back for brunch!

JUST ADD FLOWERS
Now that your hair is looking fabulous, add the loveliest addition with a fresh flower hairpiece from Floral Fantasy, open 6 days a week, and you'll be ready to win a race of your own! Of course, it wouldn't be the races without a headpiece or a fascinator.
Nothing says "Hello Spring!" like a fresh manicure. Let your fingers bloom, as you choose the perfect colour to complement your outfit at Tips & Toes Elegance, where they offer a wide range of beautiful, new OPI colours along with matching gel polish - so you won't stress about finding a match!
