'Appy New Year | Make Life Easier
New year, new me, new apps. Yeah, you read write. This year we're all about app-ealing APPS to help get us through our day to day life. Goal setting has never been so easy. No, seriously though - there is an app for setting goals #APPlause. As a tech-obsessed generation we use our smartphones for absolutely everything. From online banking to social media stalking, keeping track of where we parked our cars and for finding hot new, local restaurants, petrol stations or someone to date. Whatever you're looking for, we can guarantee there's an app invented to suit your needs. If your resolution list includes cheap travel, better organisational skills, getting fit - or anything really - we think you'll app-riciate the helpful apps we've listed below..
New Year, Same Me
Hello 2018, we are ready for you. Our resolution lists have been made and they feature an array of goals including eating anything and everything that comes our way, getting our #fitspo on, enjoying more LOL moments, living life to the fullest and, the list goes on and on. So, it's basically exactly the same as what we had written down last year. You know what they say - if it ain't broke don't fix it, right? New year, same us! We're always hungry, thirsty and feeling adventurous and if there's one thing Brisbane knows how to do, it's to let the good times roll. We've listed a few low-key events to help ease our way into the new year..
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.

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)...
Tinsel is not a fashion accessory
Alas, the holiday is here and for some, in terms of fashion, by December we can be exhausted from pulling out all the stops for the recent Spring Racing Carnival, and with the silly season here it can start to warp ones judgement. Now is not the time to think ‘but its Christmas’ or ‘its only once a year’, not when you’re so close to capping off the year on a high, fashion faux pas need to be avoided at all costs.
Christmas is Brewing
Christmas is brewing. It's time to get hoppy, and support a good cause. The 12 Tragic Beers of Christmas event is one not to miss. It's Summer, the silly season is here and it's party time.

From 10th birthdays, Christmas markets to grabbing an Asian feast in Coorparoo to a new City coffee hub. Bring it on...
