7 Things You Have To Do This Winter
Well, Winter is here. Say goodbye to the long days and short nights, the warm weather and bright, sunny skies. We're lucky enough that we only really experience cold weather for a few weeks out of the whole three months (thanks Gold Coast!), but unless you plan on being a recluse for the entire season it's a good idea to seek out some Winter alternatives to keep you occupied.
Serums, Sweets & Sounds
What do sweets, singing and skin care all have in common? We love all three! Oh My, Waffle has come out with an exclusive new Hot Chocolate this week to ward of the winter weather, and Home of the Arts is treating us to the sweet sounds of Belladiva with an exclusive one-day Opera concert! Don't feel like heading out? Treat yo'self to a pamper day at home!
Play, Paint, Create!
Unleash your arty side... We're celebrating all things creative, and Blues on Broadbeach is back to kick it all off! Start your weekend off at the Coast's biggest free music festival (yes, I said free!), then make your way to the Home of the Arts to experience their newest Art Exhibition, showcasing all the best of the Coast. Get inspired by the sights and sounds of the Coast, then grab your girlfriends and unleash your creative talent in The Craft Parlour's latest pillow painting session.
