Soak it up
Everywhere you go, this city is bursting with talent. There's the local musos, chefs, artists and designers of every kind, you've got emergency service personal, builders, hairdressers, writers, barista's (low-key lifesavers) and the list goes on and on. We have an appreciation for those who do, what we can't. This week's Word On The Street is full of flavour & life. From enjoying tasty new bites created by hardworking chefs to being completely in awe of some of the city's most talented performers. Take the time to really enjoy the present, those feelings of satisfaction won't stick around for long so relish in the moment (no matter how big or small)!
Go on, get out there
Lady birds and gentle pigeons, listen up. It's time to round up the flock and get ready for a jam-packed schedule this weekend, cause we're doing it all! From lantern-lit evening walks to long lunches, massive markets and beefed up bites, we've picked a few happenings that'll keep you warm, full and feeling good. If you're thinking of staying in, think again. There's too much to see and do so, spread those wings and get ready to soar around the city with us..
Everybody Wants to Save the World
Recycling. We all talk about it, we all try to do it, but we all overlook it far too easily.
Work-shop till you drop
Take a step back in time and a step into Camp Hill Antiques centre. Brisbane’s favourite vintage wonderland is bringing a whole lot of fun this summer in the form of crafty and creative workshops. Just one class will lead you to become a workshopaholic.
Shop Local This Festive Season
Stress less this festive season. If you're anything like us, you put your Christmas shopping off until the very last minute. Your stress levels hit an all time high and you feel like your hair is turning grey. 'Tis the season to be jolly they say? We say, 'tis the season to double up on those anxiety meds. Despite the fact that Christmas can be stressful AF, we do actually wave the festive flag. Once you get past the gift shopping part there's nothing but love to give, joy to feel and good food to eat. We've done the hoop jumping for you this year and came up with a rather cracking, Chrissy gift guide (because no one likes a Christmas Grinch)...
Sweet, sweet Spring
Time to get cultured, time to be social and time to brace yourself for some serious cuteness overload. The weathers getting warmer and the events, even hotter. This weeks Word On The Street has us soaring high into the Spring sky with excitement. If you're a lover of life, four-legged friends and the great outdoors, then read on fellow pigeons.
The knowledge of all things is possible
Get crafty, creative, curious and get a whole lotta caffeine into you. This week we're all about bettering our knowledge in fashion, art, craft beer, coffee and the future. Join us as we drink and draw, turn trash into treasure and learn about brewing, roasting and how not to f*** up our businesses..
Fresh, Festive, Fiesty, Freaky & Fun
There’s so much happening at the moment, it’s almost overwhelming. I feel my waistline expanding just thinking about it. Festivals, food, music, arts, fashion, home, lifestyle - whatever you dig - there’s something on for you. Get you diary out (aka iCal) and plan so you don’t miss ANYTHING! #YouGotThis
This Antique Superstore building is a little bit of a vintage house itself, featured with beautiful industrial artefacts. Copeland and Pickers tent makers pre-owned the space, and kept it around for more than 30 years.
Memorabilia and Decor for Everyone
Old Memory Lane is somewhere almost anyone can find at least one thing they love. An excellent location for that “Hard-to-buy-for” person, or a simple browse through this weird and wonderful emporium of interesting wares.
What's Hot, Happening and New!
Brisbane’s food fiesta is showing no signs of slowing down. This week our city is saying hello to a Tanqueray tea party in Paddington, a visit from Australia’s best chefs in Southbank, and an international street food market in the heart of our CBD!
What's Hot, Happening and New!
July is here, and we all know what that means… Winter menus have arrived! This month is all about forgetting the calorie counter and indulging on the food that makes us happy. We’re talkin’ a five-course truffle infused dinner, comfort food perfection in Paddington, and food trucks galore!

Ever wanted to live the A-lister life but that one handbag was just slightly too expensive. Worry not dear readers because we can supply you with the perfect option to make you feel like Queen Beyonce herself.
