Get comfy! Foxtel’s new streaming service Binge is luring you into a vortex of HBO hits

Yes, it’s another streaming service. Though, much like plants, puppies and biscuits, should there be a limit to how many we can enjoy? In the wise words of Cady Heron – the limit does not exist. So, with that in mind, let’s get to know Binge – a new streaming platform from Foxtel. It's armed with a library of smash-hit shows, iconic movies, cult classics and docos from the likes of HBO, Warner Bros and BBC, and it's here to make you want to kick back and, well, binge. more

The round-up: Brisbane’s best markets

For us, the perfect weekend always starts with a visit to our local farmers market. Sometimes we go for the fresh produce, other times we simply go to catch up with friends and snack on some tasty market grub. Thankfully our local farmers markets have stayed open throughout the COVID-19 lockdowns, with a greater focus on social distancing implemented to keep us safe while we support our independent farmers. If you're keen to avoid the grocery stores and get some fresh air at the same time, consider having a browse of this list of some of Brisbane’s best markets, with each packed with fresh food, sublime coffee, and some great community atmosphere. more

Get crafty in isolation with Finders Keepers At Home

Ordinarily, strolling from stall to stall at the Finders Keepers market with a coffee in one hand and baked goods in the other is a leisurely pursuit that we look forward to with anticipation. These times, however, are far from ordinary. Rather than sit at home and cry into their (probably homemade) pillows, the crafty folk behind the much-loved design market have done what they do best and got a little creative to bring you Finders Keepers At Home. If you still have a calendar (optimism, we love to see it!) go ahead and book out June 19 to 21 because you won't want to miss a minute. more

No mess, no fuss – easy but delicious one-pan, one-tray or one-pot meal recipes

Being confined to our homes for the last couple of months has lead to a lot more cooking and, for a while there, we really embraced our extra time to expand our recipe repertoire. We're starting to get to the point, however, where we're pretty tired and craving something delicious, but super easy. Not just when it comes to prep, either – we also don't want much to clean up. To help you maximise on flavour and your free time, we've found five one-pan, one-tray or one-pot meal recipes so you can skip the washing up and get back to your Netflix binge. more

Work that couch groove – the best new streaming shows to see you through winter

We're not going to beat around the bush here – it's cold outside and there's a global pandemic going on, so that's more than enough reason for us to get cosy, crack a red, order food from our favourite restaurant(s) and settle in for a solid session of TV time. Sounds pretty excellent doesn't it? The only problem with that plan is that with so many different streaming services available, just finding something good to watch can be half the battle. Plus, iso means we're reallllyyyy churning through those series faster than ever before. Well friends, good news. There are a bunch of new streaming shows and movies on their way to your screens very soon – and we've picked the best ones for you. more

A night at the theatre – treat yourself to a personal concert and world-class fare at The Tivoli’s new intimate restaurant

A much-loved Brisbane institution favourited by avid concert-goers, The Tivoli has welcomed musicians of all genres since its doors first opened to the public in 1917. Since the theatre's temporary closure in March due to COVID19, a large number of The Tivoli's devotees have been left feeling a little lost without their regular trips to the venue. Thankfully, The Tivoli is reopening its gates once more, revealing a new intimate in-venue takeover experience that will blow the socks off both lovers of terrific music and mouth-watering eats. more

Sexy sourdoughs and banging baguettes – Trojan’s 69-page bread cookbook reminds couples to get busy

In the last few months, couples living in the same space have spent more time together than ever before — and they have been baking bread together like there's no tomorrow. Whether it's sourdough, babka or bread of the banana variety, quarantine baking surpassed every other indoor activity in terms of popularity, including bedroom antics. To help you and your partner spice up your self-iso sex life, the clever clogs over at Trojan decided to release an e-cookbook called Rising Time, which boasts 69 pages worth of sensual bread recipes to help get you going. As the age-old saying goes – if you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen ... and take things into the bedroom. more
