Things only a mother knows...
For many of us, mums are the reason why we are the person we are today. They’ve been there with us since day one (literally) and have taught us more life lessons than we can remember (also, literally). Like most holidays, Mother’s Day only comes around once every year so it is important to spoil our mothers when her special day comes. Although we may take our mums for granted at times, here are 20 reasons to remember why mums are simply the best.
For The Love of Mum
Mum's are like an all-knowing wonder woman. They teach us some of the most important life lessons that we could ever learn, like what it really means to be strong, confident or in love. Since the day we were born, she’s mastered incredible superpowers, going days without sleep and multitasking as if she’s conquered time travel. Basically, Mums are simply amazing! Although she deserves to be treated like the Queen she is everyday, make sure to spoil her this Mother's Day by saying thank you, with a little help from our hand picked guide!
Brisbane is your oyster
We love getting out and about, being tourists in our own city and exploring Brisbane's suburbs. This week we've zoomed in on the middle of town, cruising through the city towards Albion, making pit stops in Fortitude Valley and Bowen Hills. Each of these area's flaunt epic eateries, cool AF precincts, trendy bars and cafes, shopping districts and so much more. We know it's easy to 'stick to what you know' and can keep in our bubbles, but it's time to stretch the legs and see what else Brissy has to offer. From mini-festivals to Japanese markets, late night bargain hunting and food that'll leave your taste buds in a frenzy, we've found what's hot and happening in upcoming weeks and we think you'll approve.
New Exhibition at Red Hill Gallery
The Good Guide is here to celebrate local is lovely. What makes a place so unique is her people. We meet the flockin' fabulous artist Emma Sheldrake who is one talented lady. Amazing Artist, Epic Graphic Designer and sublime photographer - is there no limit to what she can do? Check out her latest exhibition at Red Hill Gallery from the 9th March.
One step forward, two steps back
Oh Brisbane, you really are something. On one corner, you can take us back in time with your beautiful, heritage listed buildings and on the other, we can feel like we've zipped into the future with your impeccable architecture and modern flair. We love being able to jump between the two so easily and we're totally spoilt for choice with outdoor cinemas to classic picture houses, historic pubs to seasonal pop-up bars and everything else in between. Whatever the mood, Brissy's got you covered.
