Genkstasy leads the non-binary fashion revolution with bright, bold and feel-good threads

The strict gendering of clothing can be a pretty serious drag – after all, it’s 2019 and people should be free to wear whatever the heck they want. While unisex clothing is a step in the right direction when it comes to inclusion, the legends at Genkstasy are doing you one better – welcome to the non-binary clothing revolution! This Brisbane-based brand is blazing a trail in the fashion industry, filling a gaping hole in the market for inclusive casual-cool streetwear that doesn’t conform. more

Not-so-carbon footprint – Reebok creates the world’s first plant-based athletic shoe

When you think about one industry that could have a serious impact by going plant-based, sneakers are right up there. With more than 20 billion pairs of athletic footwear produced every year, it’s not exactly the most environmentally sound operation. Reebok is taking a step in the right direction with Cotton + Corn, its (and the world’s) first-ever totally plant-based athletic shoe. more

The Weekend Series: five things we are vibing on in December

We did it fam – we made it to the end of the year. It might have been a blur, but we all deserve a pat on the back for making it through. Before we can get into the Christmas spirit, there are some orders of business that must be attended to. We’re talking about our final vibes round-up of the year, of course. We couldn’t let 2018 fade out without celebrating some of the incredible things we’ve noticed recently, from dog-friendly beer, the future of recyclable coffee cups and innovative luggage solutions. So here it is, folks – everything we’ve been vibing on over the past month. more

Shop locally, ethically and sustainably at Burleigh’s new Heartfill Store

We all live busy lives, so it's easy to opt for convenience when it comes to making purchases – which means that online shopping, mass production and fast fashion are constantly being fuelled. Yep, it's a wild world we live in, but it sure is reassuring to know that people like Corinne Russel exist. The former school teacher is the mind behind the newly opened Heartfill Store – a one-stop retail shop built on the ethos of responsible consumerism. more

The Weekend Series: sneaking around – five sets of kicks to take you into summer

Real talk – when it comes to the realm of shoes, sneakers are just an all-around winner. They look cool, they’re comfortable to wear and there are so many variations that even if you’re not a certified sneakerhead, you’re bound to find a style you like. Not only that, but the best brands have got the game of combining function and aesthetics down to an art. There are so many hot sneaker drops happening that it’s hard to keep up, but we’ve picked five of our favourites that we simply couldn’t resist. more

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

Crack a tinnie and toast to iconic beer brand Victoria Bitter’s debut merch drop

Australia may have a famously diverse craft-beer scene, but we’re the first to admit that sometimes keeping it simple is best. Whether you’ve been slaving away in the office or on the worksite, that 2:00 pm-on-a-Friday feeling deserves a big cold beer – and the best cold beer is Vic. Okay, while best in this instance is a fairly subjective call to make, it’s hard to argue the raw appeal and cult status of Victoria Bitter. If you’ve got a soft spot for this particular brand of frothie, we have news that is bound to excite you – you can now cop official VB merchandise that is actually pretty cool. more

Be bold and break a sweat in ethical activewear from Queensland’s own d+k

When it comes to a trend, activewear is one we will gladly endorse – what’s not to love about functional clothes that promote a healthy lifestyle? Unfortunately a rise in popularity usually comes with an oversaturated market – which means sifting through a bunch of poorly made products made in dingy factories with an absurdly high mark-up. If you’ve been chasing a brand that covers the bases of looking great, staying ethically sound and keeping you comfortable, your search is over – d+k is the homegrown activewear phenomenon that you need to get around. more
