Hop on a hump and have sunset cocktails with camels at Summer Land Farm

Referred to as 'ships of the desert', camels are the long-eyelashed companion that we make friends with on the occasional show day or beach holiday. Unbeknownst to us – until now, that is – there's a whole farm full of these intelligent beauties just a short excursion from the city. It's called Summer Land Farm and it makes for one fun-filled day trip. more

Peloton is bringing its bougie workout bikes to Australia so get ready to ride like the wind, Bullseye

When it comes to workouts, we will try just about anything. Sunset pilates in the park, hot (read: sweaty) yoga classes and even cycling classes where the room resembles more of a nightclub than a gym. Those who enjoy hopping on a spin bike have probably heard of American fitness company Peloton, which has a cult-following of riders (4.4 million of them, to be exact) that prefer to get their gym fix without leaving the house. In exciting news for fitness fanatics, the cycle-centric workout platform has just announced that it's making its way to our shores this year. Goodbye, savings, hellloooo abs! more

Who run the world? Celebrate International Women’s Day with five kick-ass Queensland gals

Whether it’s via the Spice Girls or Malala Yousafzai, female empowerment comes in many forms. In every corner of every industry, ladies are slowly but surely getting louder, increasing in numbers and bringing radical change to the way the world is run. While we still have a long way to go in the fight for equality across many facets of society, history has shown time and time again that when women are offered a seat at the table, stuff gets done – so it’s important to give gals the mic and amplify their messages. To celebrate International Women’s Day on Monday March 8, we thought we’d introduce you to five amazing Queensland ladies who are putting in the work across their respective fields to make our state a great place to be. Raise your glasses to progress and equality, fam! more

Kmart’s online exclusives range has landed and goodbye paycheck, hello homewares

It's undeniable to both ourselves and our bank accounts that our love for Kmart is eternal. Feeling down? Take a trip to your local store and you'll walk out with things you don't need, but also an improved overall wellbeing. Feeling great already? Step into Kmart and you'll somehow walk out feeling better ... and probably with a new throw, some PJs and a lamp. It's a mood-boosting, serotonin-giving shopping experience and yes, as you can you tell, we are kind of addicted. It's our duty, fellow Kmart enthusiasts, to inform you that the much-loved retailer has just unveiled an exclusive online range. We knew we memorised our credit card digits for a reason. more

It’s what’s on the inside that counts – glow from within with The Glowing Skin Co.

Not a gal to sit on her heels, Tessa and her business partners set to creating a premium skin formula that contained all of the good stuff and none of the fillers. more

Support independent local music with a dig in the crates at Southport’s new Vinnies Record Store

There's something inherently satisfying about settling into a chair with a wine in hand and listening to a record from start to finish. The unmistakable crackle of the vinyl, the mild inconvenience of having to get up to change sides, the sense that time is merely a construct – it becomes an experience in itself rather than just background noise. If you too possess an appreciation for the ritual, Vinnies Dive Bar in Southport has unveiled a new privately-owned space that is dedicated exclusively to wax. It's called Vinnies Record Store (fitting) and it officially opened its doors on Tuesday December 8. more
