That's where we come in. In the spirit of maximising your independence, we've teamed up with the fun folk at Smith Collective, the coast's innovative new rental community and retail hub, to give you some ideas on how to really nail the single life on the Gold Coast this summer. more

Step outside the square – the coast’s best events and foodie experiences to fill your weekends with

Live your best life. Now, that's a set of words that are thrown around a lot these days, but how many of us actually do live our best lives? When the time comes that you stumble across your significant other, you're kind of expected to settle down, buy a house, save whatever little money is left after mortgage repayments and, you know, just generally scale back our lives completely to prepare for the future. Sound familiar? Well, the folks at Smith Collective, the coast's revolutionary new rental community, want to flip the script on 'adulting' for couples. We're in the know (it's our job), so Smith Collective teamed up with yours truly to let you know all about the best upcoming events and must-do foodie experiences across the Gold Coast. Forget Netflix and toasties on the couch – this is how you do it. more
