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 0 comments

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!

A confession of a yogi wannabe…

posted by Emmy O'Neill May 26, 2017 0 comments

Recently I had the privilege of trying the Inna Bliss Six-Week Beginner Yoga Course. Full disclosure; to say I am a beginner at yoga would be a bit of lie. But then it would also be telling the truth, because in some ways I feel like yoga is one of those things that no matter how much you do there is always more to learn.

My very first experience of yoga was watching a video cassette (not a DVD, so that might reveal my age #AnyoneElseAn80sChild) back in the early 2000’s… I then tried class after class; hopping between studios and yoga styles for the next ten years.

posted by Danielle Lewis May 4, 2017 0 comments

I would be lying if I said I didn’t look forward to a good late-night shopping sesh or spend my week dreaming of browsing store shelves on the weekend. There’s something about those shiny new shoes, or the lure of picking up a bargain that gets the blood pumping! So when we were invited to explore the new TK Maxx retail store at the Homemaker Centre in Fortitude Valley, I was pretty quick to reply with a ‘yes please!!’.
