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.

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
