Winter is coming here… Although it seems like just yesterday we were lazing around on sunny coastal shores, hot chocolate season is well and truly upon us. Lucky for us, June has some fabulous events in store to help us welcome in the cooler weather - think Winter wonderland festivities, a brand new funky laneway session and a vintage lover’s fashion market!

Out with the new, in with the old

WAC Vintage Wonderland

Go retro, and embrace vintage deco. Find that mid-century clock you didn't even know you wanted. Nourish your nest with artisan furniture you can't find anywhere else. Or simply come for the atmosphere, it's love at first sight.

Brisbane Street Art Trail

11 Must See Graffiti Artworks

Brisbane Street Art Trail

After 1,400 spray paint cans, Brisbane Street Art Festival (BSAF) (6–14 February) has our city’s facelift well on track. BSAF founders, David Don and Lincoln Savage, sought to “offer a feast for the mind, ears, body and soul” with live painting displays from over 50 street artists. The 25+ walls completed for BSAF have inspired The Good Guide to curate a street art trail, showcasing a sample of public artworks around Brisbane. So lace-up your walking shoes, charge your cameras and take a walk through the streets of your town!

When Brisbane duo Al Barras and Kitty Danger couldn’t find themselves a coffee table that didn’t involve a long drive and eating meatballs, replica rip offs or designer price tags they decided to take things into their own hands, literally.

Top Ten ‘To-Dos’ for Valentine’s Day

Wondering what to do this Valentine’s Day still? Well, take it from a man of distinction, Steven Rhodes from Aria Restaurant, on what his top 10 picks are to spoil the one that you love (don’t just limit it to one day a year, share the love all year round!).

Valentine’s Day Lineup

Stepping away from cliché

Valentine’s Day Lineup

To the joy (or dismay) of the masses, Valentines Day is nearly upon us again. Thankfully, gone are the days where the 14th of February meant sunsets, roses and ribbons on puppy dogs, while the rest of us bitter lonely people holed up indoors waiting for the storm to blow over. Quite to the contrary, 2016 has seen V-Day backpedal from its notoriously cheesy potential. Now it’s all about embracing our creative side, and following the path less travelled. It’s about a flirty cocktail (… or three) in Brisbane’s newest retro bar, or a box of delivered alcohol-spiked cupcakes, or a drunken belly laugh with our best friends. So whatever your take on this infamous holiday, be sure to keep it fabulous with our ultimate Valentine’s Day lineup!

Ellipsed at Fallow

It just takes a peep behind the black door of Fallow in the heart of Fortitude Valley on Brunswick Street to realise this store is taking their shopping experience to an entirely new level. Walk in and you’d be forgiven for confusing it with a chic art gallery such are the beautiful displays of art accompanying stunning fashion, accessories and more.

Happiness Place

The English Arrive a Happiness Place

Happiness Place

The Pussycat Dolls said, “When I grow up, I want to be famous”, but when I grow up (i.e. own my own place) I want to have a house full of beautiful things. Happiness Place in Paddington is the only place I’ll go to help me fulfil that wish. Located in an iconic Queenslander, if the store had a theme song, it would be Nat King Cole’s “Under an Orange Coloured Sky.”
