Not only will you be able to shoot some of the most aesthetically pleasing Instagram photos, making your friends believe you’re sailing down the coast of St. Tropez or Monaco, you can also indulge in as many delicious treats as you’d like. Would you like french donuts or a salmon poke bowl with your champagne? Take your pick.

German Film Festival | Fortitude Valley | 31 May – 10 June

Showing this winter season from May 31 to June 10, the Palace Centro in Fortitude Valley will soon be holding the long awaited German Film Festival. Buttered popcorn never smelt so good!

Movies including ‘the Silent Revolution,’ ‘A Jar Full of Life,’ ‘Wings of Desire,’ ‘Mademoiselle Paradis,’ and the 2007 Hit ‘Rabbit Without Ears’ will be playing throughout the festival and is bound to draw crowds from all over the city.

Make sure to book fast because tickets for a festival as good as this will be gone before you can say ‘Guten Tag!’

King Street Classes

Get in touch with your inner Picasso. You will learn to paint like a pro at Brush Strokes art class. Wine and art? Gogh on then. The Brisbane Showgrounds Brush Strokes art class is only $15, and offers wine, bites, and an all round colourful time!

Beginner or advanced, the ‘Brush Strokes’ art class on June 14 has the perfect blend of learning, laughter, wine and company that any pining Davinci will enjoy.

If mastering an eye shadow crease cut look or contouring like Kim Kardashian isn’t the dream after scrolling through Instagram, I don’t know what is.

Salon Blend on King Street is making all of our dreams come true with the ‘Highlight is Queen’ make up class on June 29.

While you indulge in canapés and champagne, Salon Blend will showcase their biggest beauty tips, tricks, and make-up trends of 2018.
