The Weekend Series: five summer essentials to upgrade your camping to glamping

Camping certainly isn’t for everyone – when you’re an adult, hanging out in a sweaty plastic dome with no electricity or hot water kind of loses its appeal. Sure, the scenery is nice, but at what cost? Our base level of comfort? No thank you, sir. The simple solution here is to level up – we’re talking glamping. Much like its inferior sibling, glamping is all about appreciating your natural surroundings but with the added benefit of being able to actually sleep at night because you’re not rolling around on a half-deflated air mattress marinating in a week’s worth of your own filth. We’ve searched for five key items that will turn your next camping trip into a glamping extravaganza. more

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

Folks, November has rolled around faster than a one-legged man in a kicking competition.

From cloud eggs to dog booze and some adorable retro revivals, here’s what we’re vibing on this month. more

The Weekend Series: scare yourself silly with our top five spooky Gold Coast experiences

Fear is a funny old thing, isn’t it? More accurately, the way that each of us responds to fear is pretty bloody fascinating. Some people love the hair-raising, stomach-dropping feeling of being totally scared out of their minds and others will do pretty much anything to avoid it. Although everyone is afraid of different things (clowns, taxes, commitment etc), there are certain archetypes that just generally rub the entire human population the wrong way. In honour of Halloween, we thought we’d see how spooky our city could get. We’ve hunted down five of the creepiest, nastiest and downright bone-chilling experiences you can have on both Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Game? more

The Weekend Series: five fitness ideas so fun you’ll forget you’re exercising

We know, we know – exercise is a pain. But if you want that rockin’ bod you’re going to have to get off your tuchus and start getting active at some point.

With that in mind, we’ve scouted around and found some activities that are so fun that it won’t even feel as if you’re exercising.

It’s been a wild couple of weeks where the weather is concerned. One day it’s scorching hot outside, and then the next day its absolutely bucketing down with rain.

If you like the sound of LEGO House, Nicolas Cage confectionery, bubble tea soft serve and blue burgers, then you’ll get a kick out of our finds. more

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

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

In our opinion, August tends to be less appreciated than other months of the year. Perhaps it’s because it’s the last winter month before the delights of spring arrive, or maybe were too busy not ignoring how fast the year has gone that we purposely don’t acknowledge that August exists, but the middle child of the yearly dozen never fails to bring some exciting happenings to the table. This August is packed with coolness, including news of bars serving canned cocktails, cracking new television shows, handy technological accessories and more. See, if you paid attention to August every once in a while, perhaps you’d see all it has to offer. more
