AAA Design uses the best of New Zealand’s sustainable natural treasures to craft quality goods that are designed to bring pleasure to your daily life.
Looking back, I never thought I'd become a jeweller. However, as time has passed my interest in the art of jewellery became a need to explore jewellery making as a practice.
My pursuit started in 2011 and it has been a constant, evolving, organic process ever since.
It is the physical act of jewellery making that I love. Experimenting with metals and texture, applying heat, using the tools and the chemical processes that unveil the intrinsic beauty of a piece. The process of crafting raw materials into simply styled jewellery that is wearable, bold at a glance but intricate up close.
My work is made to be worn, enjoyed and treasured. I craft my pieces to a quality that they may have longevity, to be handed on and appreciated by many over time.

A discerning selection of CEREAL'S favourite places to visit in each city.
They have printed guidebooks to London, Paris, New York, and Los Angeles.
Rich Stapleton and Rosa Park, Cereal’s founders, travel extensively for the magazine and were inspired to create a series of city guides that highlighted their favourite places to visit. Now, after building a loyal readership that counts on their unique, considered advice, they are relaunching the books with a fresh design and new content.
Rather than a comprehensive directory of all there is to see and do, these Cereal City Guides offer instead an edit of points of interest and venues that reflect Cereal’s values in both quality and aesthetic sensibility. Rich and Rosa have personally visited hundreds of venues in Paris, distilling their preferred locales down to their firm favourites. From lively, local-filled cafés to design-driven boutiques that channel the inimitable Parisian savoir-faire, these are the finds that that will offer a more personal take on the city. Meticulously researched and illustrated with original photography, each guide includes:
- photo essays of striking images of the city
- an illustrated neighbourhood map
- interviews and essays from celebrated locals
- more lists of essential architectural points of interest, museums, galleries, day trips outside of the city and unique goods to buy
- an itinerary for an ideal day in the city

Our quest is to spoil and protect your sometimes finicky, always worthy skin with the purest, eco-conscious suncare products possible. After all, you may obsess over what you put in your body, but think about what you put on it. We thought about it, quite a bit actually. And we consciously chose to develop COOLA using ingredients that are organic, sustainable and locally sourced, much like the foods we prefer to eat. Green, yet still luxurious, each of COOLA’s products will protect and nourish your skin with vitamins, natural-protectors, and age-defying antioxidants. And no doubt without Paba, Paraben, Petroleum or Phthalate, because who needs that in, or even near their body? Today COOLA continues to offer high-performance sun care products that are still both delicate and luxurious enough to compliment anyone’s daily skincare regimen, no matter how fussy.
Our full line of luxury sun and skincare products incorporate a Farm to Face® sourcing philosophy, using the freshest and most natural ingredients whenever possible. Look for our organic formulas that contain over 70% certified organic ingredients and are easily identified by our organic seals. Additionally, we formulate with Plant Protection®, which allows us to achieve clinically tested, broad-spectrum and antioxidant-rich protection while using fewer traditional actives. Better for your skin, better for the environment.
Solar Powered™ Sunscreen
All COOLA formulas are manufactured in the USA and the majority of our products are crafted in Southern California in a solar-powered facility. We use the power of the sun to protect from the sun (and we think that’s very COOLA!).
Farm to Face™
Similar to the Farm to Table food movement, we believe in sourcing our ingredients and vendors locally to promote communities and jobs as well as cutting down on the costs of long-distance shipping (both financial and environmental). In addition, we can use our platform to encourage and sustain local and organic farming.
Natural Plant Phyto-Protectors
COOLA incorporates natural plant phyto-protectors into all of our products. These ingredients, such as plankton, red algae, and red raspberry seed oil (among others), have innate sun protection qualities and help boost our sunscreen's SPF value naturally. They also allow us to limit the number of FDA approved active ingredients we use.
COOLA Mineral Sunscreens contain non-nano sized mineral (physical) actives Zinc Oxide and/ or Titanium Dioxide. COOLA formulate Mineral Sunscreens uniquely, separating and encapsulating each active in an effort to keep them equidistant from each other. This equal dispersal provides not only the most transparent application but also the best protection, as the active particles evenly reflect UV rays. These ultra-lightweight, sheer formulations include the award-winning SPF50 for babies, kids, and sensitive skins and include formulas that are water resistant up to 80 minutes.
