The Weekend Series: Bitcoin, blockchain and bamboozlement – making sense of cryptocurrency

You’ve heard the buzz, read about it online and seen its logos pop up at shops and eateries, but what do you really know about Bitcoin? If you are like us, you are as clueless as a camel at the North Pole. Cryptocurrency has been increasing in prominence since being invented in 2009, but to us laypeople it hasn’t exactly become easier to understand. That being said, quite a few people are making a big deal out of this new technology, so we decided it would be a good idea to figure out what the heck it’s all about and see if we can break it down in a handy, easy-to-digest format. more

Kinfolk & Co. reignites the art of food with handcrafted kitchen and tablewares

Somewhere along the way in the busy lives we all live, the connection was lost between people, their food and how they ate it. In a world where mass production rules the roost, it's easy to look for convenience over quality in so many ways. Here at The Weekend Edition, we're all for slowing down and enjoying the magic around us. So, when we came across handmade tableware maker Kinfolk & Co., we knew the company's ethos of slow design, mindful purchasing and less consumption was something we just had to harp on about. more

When was the last time you went and got a roll of film developed? You probably don't even remember ... that's what your iPhone is for, right? Well, there's an exclusive exhibition hitting the coast in a few weeks time that will challenge that theory.

Tackle the ocean with femininity and style in surfsuits from Lore of the Sea

Let's face it – femininity and functionality can be hard to nail when it comes to female surfwear. Actually, that pretty much applies to all female fashion. Like, sure we all want to look fabulous when we're out there in the middle of all the action, but at some point the need for functionality and practicality will inevitably surface. If you're surfer or an active ocean woman, then let us introduce you to women's surfwear brand Lore of the Sea. more

Delivery service Pop-Up Kindness is embracing the concept of random acts of kindness, with curated and DIY gift packs that can be delivered daily to that special friend, buddy or colleague for no other reason than to make them smile. more

The Arts Centre’s latest production Blue Love makes light of relationships with quirky physical theatre

Multi-award-winning choreographer Shaun Parker is taking the stage at the Arts Centre Gold Coast this month with his latest production Blue Love.

If you're a fan of physical theatre and comedy, then this is one show you will not want to miss.  more
