FOR A GREATER PURPOSE WITH St VdP
They say it's better to give than receive... give Vinnies any unwanted gifts and get not only a warm fuzzy feeling in return but a little somethin' somethin' that you will love - a cool experience! *wink wink
Sounds good? Read on my friends....
ONLINE gifting website Gift It Now has partnered with St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland (Vinnies) to give Gold Coast locals the opportunity to regift unwanted Christmas presents to those less fortunate with the launch of its ‘Gift Exchange’ program.
Locals are encouraged to get involved with Gift It Now’s Gift Exchange by visiting Vinnies shops at Burleigh, Nerang, Arundel, Tugun and Palm Beach with their unwanted or un-needed Christmas haul from Monday, January 8 to Sunday, January 14.
Skills, Sounds, Sessions!
The coast is packed with spaces for socialisation, training and creative expression. Every hobby and interest is covered, from skateboarding to life drawing, and even spiritual healing. Not your thing? Hop down to a local gig for some sound healing instead.
Beauty, Brickworks, Business!
Another week of events and new happenings will get you through. Flow and Thrive business workshop ensures you squeeze productivity from the weekend like juice from a lemon. Score yourself a spot in the mosh of mind-altering music at night. Get all the business out of your body by partying like a rock star.
Slam, Street Food, Salutations!
Free yoga classes are increasingly rare, but we’ve tracked one down for you. A focus on mindfulness forces you to draw inward as your body is pushed to the limits on the outside. Channel this for a live poetry reading, or reward yourself with Asian street food and botanical cocktails down at the Bazaar. We won’t judge.
Eco, Espresso, Entertainment!
The hottest combination of vintage, Rock n Roll and chilled out vibes. Spend your nights moshing, your mornings sloshing coffee and your afternoons washing out in the shade. A rustic rug and a good tree can become your best friends as you recharge down at your local market.
Salt, sand, swell!
The coast is kicking off another week of weird and wonderful events, from soda-making to live skating. Pack your car with all your wackiest mates and drift down to see some local talent. They might just teach you something new. Show ‘em how to party.
Vibrations, vistas, vintage!
Whether you’re a rage-moshing party animal or a cocktail-fuelled dance star, your weekend outlet awaits. Hit the bar and air guitar until Monday wraps her honeyed fingers back around you.
Shake it Off!
Winter is here, the flowers are growing (it's the GC), but still, no sign of boys in your yard. After last year’s disappointing harvest, you’re slightly worried. Will they ever bloom? Well, fear not, the Gold Coast is home to an array of sumptuous, satisfying milkshakes (damn right, they’re better than yours) that suit all tastes. Whether you’re seeking decadent delights, refreshing treats, or just a good old fashioned brain freeze (drinking slowly is for squares) the Gold Coast has you covered. Follow this guide, and your yard is sure to become a veritable hotspot in no time.
Spectacuar, Sweet, Sumptuous!
It’s time for disco dancing and sweet romancing, for clean living and lots of giving, for swinging songs and partying all night long. That’s right, Word on the Street is back to sweep you off your feet, and all you need is a sweet tooth, a sweeter voice, and an eye for adventure!
Musical, Magical, Magnificent!
You don’t have to be able to sing to appreciate the sweetest sounds around, but it doesn’t hurt! Whether becoming an official rock god in the shower, having the crowd eating out of the palm of your hand while waiting in traffic, of belting along to every word at a groovy gig, there’s no greater joy than nailing that high note and being high on life. We hear your tune, so sing loud and proud!
Vivid, Vibrant, Victorious!
To be the best you can be, you have to see the best you can see. Luckily, there are always plenty of amazing things to see in this neck of the woods (or should we say neck of the nest), so all you have to do is open your eyes wide, and take in the wondrous views!
Fancy, Fantastic, Favourite!
Have you ever woken up from a dream and wished it was real? Well, this week Word on the Street is making all of your dreams come true. Settle into your nest and let your mind run wild, as we pour on the glitz, glamour, and gold, skipping from Superyachts – which are even better than they sound – to more books than you’ll know what to do with, and a legion of lovely live performances. You deserve it!
Tasty, Talented, Tantalising!
How high can you fly? Some say the sky’s the limit, but we believe in reaching for the stars. Plus, once you’re floating around up there, you’ll have a pretty spectacular view of all the cool stuff going on down here – hotel room gigs, body painting, rooftop shenanigans, and a giant pair of flying undies. You bet! It’s just another day in the life.
Radiant, Ravisihing, Radical!
Roses are red, the sky’s warm and blue, we love our nest, and so should you! Sunflowers are yellow, we all love to eat, to find out what’s on, read Word on the Street!
