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

If you're surfer or an active ocean woman, then let us introduce you to women's surfwear brand Lore of the Sea. more

Protect yo’self in the Cancer Council’s 2017 Ugly Christmas Rashie

Christmas in Australia generally consists of eating, drinking and finding the best way to stay cool – you know, hitting the beach, swimming in creeks or wading in an inflatable kiddie pool full of beer. Though, if you get a little envious of your mates in the Northern Hemisphere sipping eggnog in front of the fire with their ugly Christmas sweaters on, then get your paws on the Cancer Council's 2017 Ugly Christmas Rashie. 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
