Feasts, Festivities & Royal Fashion Faves!

GC Word on the Street #112

Well, it's official - It's 2019! Over the past 365 days we've celebrated diversity at the Commonwealth Games, eaten our way around the Gold Coast, enjoyed theatrical talent at the Home of the Arts and spent way too much time at the beach soaking up the sun. We said goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019 with a bang, and now it's time to step into the new year and all of the magic that it will bring. 2019 already has shows, food, fashion and culture in spades - And we can't wait to see what else this year will bring!

Spanish Chocolate Feast | San Churro

Who said that the indulging had to finish on January 1st? We're certainly not done... Because San Churro has just released a mouth-watering new Chocolate feast! Debuting their decadent new Spanish Tapas Menu, San Churro is breaking out all the stops, featuring chocolate-dipped strawberries, mini churros, chocolate brownies and more in their newest tasting plate! #TotalFoodPorn, right? We'll see you there!

360 Allstars Circus | 16th - 19th Jan @ HOTA

There's always time to go visit a circus - Especially when it involves break dancing, basketball tricks and BMX riders! Riding into the Home of the Arts from the 16th - 19th of January, the 360 Allstars Circus is unlike anything you've ever seen, performing contemporary tricks in what can only be described as an awesome urban circus! Enjoy acrobatic feats from breakdancers, juggling tricks from basketball players and daring moves from BMX riders, all combined with an incredible lights show and live music for a truly rad circus experience! Need an idea for school holiday activities? We've got you covered.

Carnivale 2019 | Friday & Saturday Nights @ Sea World

If you've totally run out of things to keep the kids entertained before school starts back (or you're in total denial that work has started back again), there's no better place to escape life than Sea World's Carnivale 2019! Running every weekend during January, Sea World will come alive after dark, with plenty of rides, entertainment and their spectacular lights show turning the whole park into an incredible wonderland! Get your thrill ride fix on all of your favourite rides after dark (anyone up for a ride on the Storm Coaster after dark?), then wander around the park enjoying all of the sights and smells that the space has to offer, with plenty of roving entertainment and delicious food to keep everyone happy! Oh, and don't forget to hang out around the lake after dinner - Sea World's Aquacolour Spectacular is bigger and better than ever!

DIY Self Care & Bath Bombs | 16th Jan @ The Craft Parlour

The weeks and months immediately after Christmas are always kind of dull, stressful and boring - So what better way to brighten up your weekend than with a DIY Bath Bomb class at The Craft Parlour? Aimed at helping teens learn the art of self-love (so Mum's, bring your teens along!), you can sit back and relax as you take in the scent of orange, lavender, nutmeg and more, with plenty of natural, chemical-free scents to choose from! Working alongside the fabulous Emma Gash from Byron Bay Bath Bombs, it's the perfect way to get away from the insanity of life and just enjoy some gal time - And with Christmas right behind us (and a whole crazy year left to go), there's no better time to do it!

Royal Fashion Favourites | White Label Noba

We all secretly wonder what it would be like to live in the shoes (or dresses) of royalty sometimes. To wear their clothes, to live their lives, and to experience the day just like a royal would. We may not have the scoop on how to live exactly like a royal, but we can at least help you to dress like one - Just like Princess Zara Phillips, to be exact! One of our personal favourite royals, Zara showed up to Pacific Fair's Magic Millions showcase in the White Label Noba dress 'Scarlett' during the week, rocking the look with style and grace and pairing the dress with nude heels and a light pink hat. Retailing at $399.95, you'll easily look and feel just like royalty in this stunningly crafted dress, carefully created with cotton blend lace and georgette ruffles for the perfect fun, flirty outfit! But make sure you get in fast - Sizes are selling 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.
