The Weekend Series: relax to the max – treat yourself at these roadtrip-worthy day spas

Let’s just all agree that this year has been a pretty wild ride, which has probably (definitely) taken a toll on your soul and left your skin looking and feeling a little bit ordinary. The importance of carving out time for self care during times of increased stress cannot be understated – it’s not only good for your physical wellbeing but it’s imperative to keep your emotional and mental health in check. Sure, there are an abundance of day spas and salons within close proximity to your house but sometimes the very act of getting in the car and driving out of town for the day can be relaxing in itself. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some excellent day spas in Southeast Queensland and beyond so you can truly make a day (or night) of it – massages, facials, treatments, coffee, and most importantly, time to yourself – sounds pretty darn great to us! more

Well, fellow ice-cream enthusiasts, the news is about to get a whole lot better. In response to the cancellation of this years Ekka, Brisbane brewery Stone & Wood has decided to help fundraise for The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation by brewing a strawberries-and-cream-flavoured beer inspired by the Ekka’s iconic strawberry sundae. Très magnifique. more

Don't be silly, wrap sustainably with plastic-free Great Wrap

Don’t be silly, wrap sustainably with plastic-free Great Wrap

The use (or should we say misuse) of single-use plastics in the home is an issue we are tackling product by product. One nasty but need-to-have tool that we have yet to find a working sustainable alternative for is cling wrap. Of course, there has been a few biodegradable cling wraps that have hit the market, but these are usually made from regular plastic with an organic additive blended in. This means it disintegrates much quicker, but sadly it still breaks down into microplastics that then flow into our ecosystems and never disappear. In other words, these products are no bueno. Thankfully a new and improved product has arrived – introducing Great Wrap, and like its namesake infers, it is a great alternative for the environment. more
