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.
Wellness From Within
Now that Summer has kicked the bucket, it’s time to give your skin some much-needed lovin’. The Gold Coast is still heating up, thanks to this range of natural beauty companies. Jojoba, sweet almond and jasmine are just a few of the organic delights.
Pete Murray & Benny Owen's Exclusive Wellness Retreat
Pete Murray and Benny Owen are excited to present their unprecedented joint venture Music and Movement Escapes, a four night exclusive wellness retreat, with a unique focus on fitness, wellbeing and the joys of music. The first retreat (which includes a beach front gig on Valentine’s Day) will take place from Monday February 12 to Friday February 16, 2018, and will be held at the enviable 5 star Byron Bay resort, Elements of Byron Resort and Spa.
The best food and fashion that the Brickworks has to offer
The weather's getting warmer, the days are getting longer and Gold Coast festivals are back in full swing. From food and fashion to health and beauty, the Coast is alive and buzzing with a variety of festivals and events to welcome in Spring. Hosted every year in early September (this year it was on the 10th), the Brickwork's Inside Out event was certainly no exception - Showcasing the best of the Brickworks' food, fashion, health and beauty, it certainly wasn't a day to miss!
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.
Chords, creativity, connection!
Winter is a time of reflection, and the Gold Coast has brought you a magic mix of music and inspiration. Jam it out at Elsewhere and Miami Marketta, or wind it down with art and essential oil workshops. If you need a lazy one, lay yourself out in the sun underneath The Green Marquee’s big fig tree.
