Clean Beauty Retreat | April 6 @ The Byron at Byron

Sometimes we all just need a little bit of extra TLC in our life, right? Well, what better way to do that then an entire retreat dedicated to all things health and beauty! Running on April 6th at The Byron Rest and Spa, the Clean Beauty Retreat is every ladies ultimate pamper day, with a full day of activities and seminars dedicated to making you feel empowered, refreshed and calmed. Run by the fabulous woman behind Mukti Organics, you'll walk out of there feeling relaxed, empowered and comfortable in your own skin... So why not grab your gal pals and get yourselves down there!

Caffe Republic

This place is one of our all-time faves... And if you check them out, it's not hard to see why! Serving up some seriously good brews and even better food since 2009, this local fave has a menu to suit literally everyone, with plenty of Vegan, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free and even Paleo options to cater for all of your dietary needs. Open from 6:30am every morning of the week, grab a Whip Bowl or fresh Banana Bread on your way to work, or come in for brunch and enjoy hot Pancakes, Eggs Bennie, Brekky Burrito's and more! Also serving up quality coffee from Melbourne roaster Locale Espresso, you know your caffeine needs will be covered as well... So I guess we'll see you there!

The YOT Club

So, just in case you've been living under a rock the last few months, The YOT Club is the coolest new party venue to hit the waters (yes, the waters) of the Gold Coast - And we were beyond excited when it set off on its maiden voyage on Saturday night! Officially open for events and for private hire, The YOT Club is the hottest new party space in Australia, with room for up to 400 guests spread across two floors and three cocktail bars to suit all of your party needs. Kicking off its first season on the water with their Endless Summer Series, you can spend the afternoon drinking and dancing with friends on their main deck, or grab yourself a VIP ticket and experience the best life with exclusive drinks and seating by the water! Leaving at 5pm sharp, it's the ultimate sunset party experience - But with tickets going fast, you don't want to wait! Cheers to an endless summer!

New Winter Menu | Finn Poke

Even though it may not feel like it just yet, Summer is finally coming to an end for another year - So Finn Poke is making that transition just a little easier for us, introducing two brand new menu items right in time for Winter! Releasing The Steak Bowl and the Shroom Noodle Soup Bowl, foodies will have the option to enjoy Grass-Fed Beef in a Sweet and Sour Bowl or five types of Mushrooms in a vegan-friendly broth of deliciousness, right in time for the colder Winter months to roll around! Available at their Pacific Fair store right through Winter, you'll have plenty of opportunity to grab these steaming bowls of goodness... But they look so good, why wait?!

Eddy & Wolff

If you don't know much about Eddy & Wolff just yet, that's ok - Because this space was so secret that we didn't even know their location until two weeks ago, and now they've finally let in the world and opened their doors for everyone to enjoy! Opening the doors of their brand new space in Robina, Eddy & Wolff is the coolest new restaurant to open on the Coast, boasting an intimate 22 seats and an incredible Asian-inspired menu perfect for an intimate lunch or evening out. Decorated in a chic black and gold theme with bar seating and two booths, this hidden bar is the first for many things, stocking an exclusive selection of Asian Beers and Wines to pair perfectly with their unique, carefully curated menu. Designed to share, you and your partner can enjoy Scallop Ceviche, Pork Collar, Grilled Barramundi or Chargrilled King Prawns, alongside a stunning selection of Asian inspired cocktails and unique wines to make for the perfect night out! But make sure you book first - With only 22 seats available, you don't want to take your chances and miss out!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
