Curves for days – The Fold caters for larger cup sizes with its chic swimwear

Whether you personally possess a pair or someone close to you does, you would no doubt be aware of the struggles of life as a woman with breasts that go beyond a D cup. Clothes shopping is hard enough as it is, but when it comes to swimwear the task is practically impossible – why is it so damn hard to find something that’s both supportive and nice to look at? Two women who share this frustration are Carly Warson and Stephanie Korn, Melbourne designers and lifelong friends who decided to take matters into their own hands with The Fold. more

Clapham Junction Wine Bar Provisions brings a touch of classic charm to Banyo

After a long commute home, sometimes it would be nice to step off the bus or train and into a local speakeasy for a quick post-work tipple. We’re going to hazard a guess that commuters getting off the Shorncliffe train at Banyo station have felt this way before, and now their prayers have been answered. Clapham Junction Wine Bar Provisions is a cosy and cheerful nook for locals to sip from a worldly selection of wines, boutique Australian spirits and an ever-evolving selection of bites. more

Cheeky Poké Bar brings a fresh and fun spin on seafood to Newstead

We’ve been eagerly following Newstead’s Haven development as it drip-feeds us new hotspots to check out. One of the latest (and sassiest) openings is delivering a new Japanese-inspired spin on poke bowls. Cheeky Poke Bar is slowing things down when it comes to stacked seafood bowls, lovingly crafting each dish with a plethora of nourishing ingredients and pairing it with some creative culinary inventions such as seafood tacos, bone broths, shaved milk ice desserts and more. If this sounds good to you, get in line to try Cheeky Poke Bar when it opens this Friday December 15. more

Collaboration and creation collide for The Cove Workspace’s Curated event series

When it comes to the design and creative industries, one of the most beneficial things you can do is take the time to learn from your peers. It’s a bloody tough slog out there in the industry, so taking on the wisdom and advice from those who are killing it in their field is pretty much a no-brainer. Rather than go for a dry boardroom-style approach, The Cove Workspace decided to hold a series of events to put the fun back into learning and networking. Running from December 11–22, Curated will bring together some of the brightest minds in the business for your information and pleasure. more

Icons sign on for the prestigious food and drink offering at Howard Smith Wharves

All good things take time, which is why we can’t exactly be mad at the fact that the redevelopment of the Howard Smith Wharves has been so long in the making. Bits and pieces have been coming through since we first wrote about the project back in 2014, but a recent release of information has seen some very juicy details come about. Last week you guys got all kinds of excited when we dropped some hints in Pavement Whispers, so we thought we would provide a more in-depth look at what will be happening to the space in the months to come. If the thought of cutting-edge waterfront bars, Japanese izakayas from down south, brand-new Greek concepts and massive Hong Kong-inspired eateries gets you going, do read on. more

Time to folk around – the Woodford Folk Festival returns to entertain and inspire

If you haven’t been to the Woodford Folk Festival, it’s almost impossible to describe it to someone else. Every year on the day after Boxing Day, tens of thousands of people flock to the paradise of Woodfordia to indulge in a constant stream of pure magic in the form of music, live art, performances, debates and more, coming together as a mini-community until it all culminates on New Year’s Day. The all-encompassing vibe may sound like a bit of a stretch, but believe us when we say this is one journey you need to take at least once in your life. more

Ditch the roses – Sweety’s Treat Boxes are a gift worth giving

At this time of year, we tend to put a lot of pressure on ourselves to find the perfect gift. It’s not just the festive period we do this in, either. Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries – the opportunities for gift giving are nearly endless. One thing almost everyone can enjoy is a big ol’ box of doughnuts and assorted confectionary, which is why Sweety’s Treat Boxes is a big deal. This new doughnut delivery service has just launched in Brisbane, and is distributing a huge amount of tasty treats – even the covetable doughnut bouquets – just in time for Christmas. more
