The Weekend Series: treat yo’ self to some pampering at these luxe roadtrip worthy day spas

If the weeks and months of the year to date have taken their toll on your soul and your skin, there’s nothing to do but recuperate and replenish. Trust us, self-care is an essential practice, which means a visit to a day spa is almost akin to visiting the doctor. While there are plenty of top-notch pampering spots in close proximity to our homes, we’re in love with the idea of abandoning the city in favour of a day spa that’s beyond the reaches of the city. Clear your schedule – this weekend is all about massages, facials, treatments, soaks, exfoliations and, most importantly, you. more

Pinot and Picasso – unleash your inner artist at Brisbane’s latest paint-and-sip venue

Real talk – tapping into a brand-new creative pursuit as an adult is kind of daunting. We often put a bunch of pressure on ourselves to be amazing at things straight off the bat, which takes the fun out of the whole experience – especially when it comes to something as subjective as art. If you’ve been looking for a way to explore your creative side in a no-pressure environment (or you’re just looking for a cool new activity), West End’s stunning new paint-and-sip studio Montana Art Project is just the ticket. more

Good greens – a kokedama and indoor plant pop-up has landed in Winn Lane

Some time in the past couple of years, horticulture went from being a bit of a hobby for some people to a full-blown phenomenon – and quite frankly, we’re thrilled that it’s cool to love plants. Before the indoor plant trend started blowing up, a Brisbane lady by the name of Phoebe Hearsch was trying to figure out a way to spend more time at home with her two pooches, Max and Mort. Fast-forward four years and Phoebe is a one-woman show running her own kokedama and indoor plants business named after her beloved pups, servicing our fine city with little slices of lush on the regular. more

Perhaps it’s time you tightened up your search … and the internationally successful dating app The Inner Circle is here to help you do it. more
