Just Livin' Our Best Lives

GC Word on the Street #158

With the mercury rising and the drinks calling, we're always looking for ways to slow down, stay cool and enjoy everything that summer has to offer. We're counting down the days until Christmas holiday's, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy our afternoons right now - And with plenty of great shows, smooth sips and drool-worthy dishes popping up, we've got the scoop on all the best places to head to this week!

New Burleigh Beauty Brand

We're all about supporting local businesses, and with our skin constantly being bombarded by the summer Gold Coast sun, what better Gold Coast business to support than the fabulous new Burleigh Beauty! Inspired by the Gold Coast lifestyle, Burleigh Beauty is the hottest new skincare brand to hit the market, created with plant-based Australian ingredients and dedicated to helping women look and feel their best. Offering their cleanser, repairing moisturiser and facial cleaners separately, you can easily pick and choose whatever you need to suit your lifestyle - But with so many incredible options to choose from, you might as well get their starter pack and try out all three!

Asylum Nightclub | Now Open

Step into Asylum... The Gold Coast's newest nightclub! Transforming the old Shooters Nightclub, Asylum is the wildest new space to open in the Surfers Paradise nightclub scene, with a $2M refurb that will leave you totally shocked as soon as you walk inside. Dedicated to transforming the nightclub scene, leave your expectations at the door, with mesmerising lights and unforgettable sights awaiting you inside the hottest new Surfers hideout. Delivering a truly immersive experience, we can guarantee this is one asylum you'll never want to leave...

Duke's Parlour | The Island Gold Coast

The Coast has no shortage of places to sit back and relax after a hard day of work - But we think we've just found our new favourite. Hidden away inside The Island Hotel, Duke's Parlour is the latest addition to the thriving Hotel, offering a cool new space complete with wooden furnishings and leather furniture for all of your late-night sipping. Serving up a seriously good-looking drinks menu as well as plenty of wood-fired pizza, it's easy to see yourself lounging around in there after a hard day at work.

Friday Night Comedy | 7:30pm @ Wildernis Cafe

We're always up for a way to mix up our week a little bit, and what better way to do it than with Friday Night Comedy down at Wildernis! Running their Comedy from 7:30pm every Friday night, head on down after a week of work (or Christmas shopping) and get ready for a night of belly laughs, with Based Comedy bringing the goods for all ages. Free to attend, you can easily drop in and just enjoy a cheap night out - But with plenty of drinks all round by Wildernis Cafe, why not grab a plate and your favourite sip and make a night out of it!

Seafood Sundays | From Midday @ Baskk

The seafood is seriously calling us with this weather, so we were stoked when Baskk announced it was bringing out it's incredible Seafood Sundays! Running from midday every Sunday, grab your boyfie, your gal pals, your fam (or all of the above!) and head in for an indulgent afternoon of drool-worthy food and seriously good drinks, with plenty of fresh seafood and customisable cocktails on offer to help keep the summer heat at bay. Including fresh oysters, fish, bugs and more, as well as a fresh salad and sides, we highly recommend booking in and treating yourself before it runs out!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
