Shopping, Seafood & Serenity

GC Word on the Street #133

Can you believe it - May is over already? We may be moving into the days of Ugg Boots and fluffy blankets, but that doesn't mean you have to sit at home all Winter! With some brand new food, brand new work-out classes and some serious shopping on the way, we've got all the motivation you need to get exploring the Coast this week!

Celebrate Wellness Month | Sanctuary Cove Country Club

We're well and truly moving into the month's of the Winter blues, so sometimes there's no better way to combat that than grabbing some gal pals and heading out to a day of yoga, smoothies and girl time - And that's exactly what's going down at the Sanctuary Cove Country Club this month! Celebrating Wellness Month all through June, grab a smoothie or coffee from Arnie's Cafe then dive into their yoga classes, gym classes and info sessions, then sit down with a professional and learn how to make yourself the best you can be! Also, did we mention they've got a kids club as well? #WINNING!

Pipit Restaurant | Pottsville

We're always super excited when new restaurants pop up - But we were even more excited when we heard that Chef Ben Devlin was finally opening his first solo venture in Pottsville! Previously working at the prestigious Paper Daisy Restaurant, Ben's newest love is located on Coronation Drive right near Mooball Creek, serving up a stunning selection of locally-sourced food paired perfectly with local wines for the ultimate culinary experience out. Open on select days for lunch and dinner, you can find yourself dining on Grilled Spatchcock, Glazed Pumpkin, fresh Seafood and more, with the menu changing constantly according to the freshest ingredients in the local area. Offering the option to do multiple courses, you can easily grab a friend (or three) and make an afternoon out of visiting this fabulous new space! Cheers to Pipit Restaurant!

Did someone say shopping spree? Grab your wallet and your gal pals, and I'll see you there!

New Seafood Menu | King Crab Co

Let's be real - We're pretty spoiled for choice with seafood restaurants on the Gold Coast, but we couldn't help but fall in love when we discovered that King Crab Co had managed to snag a brand new, award-winning chef - And he'd brought a brand new menu to go with him! Featuring nautical-themed decor and stunning views of the Broadwater, King Crab Co is the place to go if you're a seafood lover on the Gold Coast, boasting a stunning new menu and plenty of incredible cocktails for the perfect water-side lunch out. Offering sides including Prawn and Avocado, Fish Wings and an array of Oysters, as well as mains including Moreton Bay Bugs and Crispy Skin Barramundi, you'll easily find something you love on this stunning new menu - So grab some friends for a ladies day 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.
