The Float Space

posted by Emmy O'Neill July 31, 2017 0 comments

In this fast paced, 24/7 digital world it is often impossible to turn off, to de-stress, to relax, be still and just let go. We are often so consumed with our work, with our phones, with ‘staying connected’ via social media that self-care, relaxation and mindfulness are the last of our priorities. Sound familiar?

So last week when our designer announced that he had tried ‘floating’ to help with mental clarity and relaxation; my stressed out self sat up, listened and took notice. Floating? Did I hear him correctly? In case you are like me living under a rock for this past year; you might be oblivious to ‘Floatation Centres.’ Turns out floating is all the craze and rightly so! Anything that boasts positive health benefits, detoxifying AND de-stresses is a good thing! So I reached out to The Float Space in West End and promptly booked in a session. Continue Reading

SEVEN TIPS TO HELP YOU SELL YOUR HOUSE

posted by Emmy O'Neill July 28, 2017 1 Comment

Spring is just around the corner and it is the perfect time if you’re thinking about putting your house or unit on the market! Buyers LOVE shopping in Spring so making sure your house is market ready and dressed for sale, so come September, you can hit to property market with a WOW FACTOR!

The old rule is that you only get one chance to make a great first impression. This is so true when it comes to many things and especially true for real estate.  The first time a buyer sees a home is the most important and it all starts right from the moment they pull up out the front…

We caught up with Brad Sissons from Coronis Coorparoo for a cappuccino to learn how to get your house ready for sale!

Miss Jones

Here at BT we love breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner… well all things food related really! So we were more than excited to check out one of New Farms newest additions.

Miss Jones has arrived and did we fall head over heels in love with it? Yes, yes we did!  Was it the that delicious smashed avo on toast (nothing beats a classic) with those bright green, fresh peas on top? Or maybe the breakfast burger? Or the coffee? Or the kick-ass dusty pink colour pops inside? The interior (& exterior) was just darling; talk about #Instaworthy!! Continue Reading

posted by Emmy O'Neill June 30, 2017 0 comments

Can we just stop the clock and ask ourselves how is it nearly July? The second half of 2017 is about to start and we are moving towards 2018. The Winter Solstise has already happened. Those little Buddy the Elf memes with the number of sleeps until Christmas have already started!! And I don’t know about you, but I have certainly not made a dent into my 2017 New Year’s resolutions…

So why not wipe the slate clean and start again. Mid-Year Resolutions are so the new ‘New Year Resolutions’ #Right?

A little weekender in the city is sometimes just what you need to be reminded of the beauty of Brisbane. Being a tourist in your hometown is the best way to fall in love your city and cure the ‘travel bug’ feeling. You know that longing, that desire to travel; it happens when you haven’t been on a holiday in a while…

Grown up fun at Dendy Portside

You know those mornings when you wake up, vague memories of the night before, way too many drinks and the late night pizza (or maccas dash) on the way home? That ‘rough night’ we all try to forget, where we were just letting our hair down and having fun out with fiends? Yeah that night. Well… Rough Night is the new #LMAO R-rated comedy about just that… a group of girls having a weekend renion-turned rough night… which may or may not include killing a stripper (by accident of course).

SIX Tips for First Time Home Buyers

posted by Emmy O'Neill June 2, 2017 1 Comment

We all dream of the white picket fence, weatherboard house, with a verandah that wraps around… in grey and white; close to good schools, great coffee and a backyard for the chickens? Okay they might not be your dreams… but they are someones (ahem #overhere #yesme). Owning your own house & all those future home dreams are so individual. We all like different styles of homes, different areas and we all have different needs, and especially different budgets. But regardless of what type of home you might be day-dreaming about owning, taking the plunge and deciding you want to enter the property market is a huge step. We caught up with Brad Sissons from Coronis Coorparoo and he shared his top SIX tips for first time home buyers… including one which you might not expect (and just secretly it may have been our personal favourite here at BT headquarters).

Is there anything greater than sitting with your best friend, (or you mama, grandma, godmother or anyone special) and sipping on champagne and eating scones? We think not! Scones, champagne and cakes are a perfect way to spend a few hours on the weekend.

A few weeks ago we had the privilege of eating and drinking the afternoon away at the Brisbane Marriott High Tea. Oh-so-fancy and oh-so-fabuous! Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, wedding, baby shower, birthday or just after a lovely way to thank you friend, the Brisbane Marriott’s High Tea is the perfect opportunity to feel oh-so-speical. I took my bestie along and we commenced the afternoon sipping on bubbles!

Tuesday Chats with Adam

posted by Emmy O'Neill May 30, 2017 0 comments

This month we are sitting down and having a virtual cappuccino with Adam from Toni & Guy Brisbane.

Originally from the UK, Adam has been hairdressing for over 12 years. After completing his training in styling at Toni & Guy in London, Adam decided to go and explore the world. Finally after falling in love with the Australian sun he couldn’t resist but to settle here. Who can blame him really? Hairdressing for him has been a way that he can combine his passion for travel and experiencing new cultures and his love for fashion. We’re excited to get to know a little bit more about this passionate creative!
