posted by Karlicca Culalic December 15, 2017 0 comments

Presents, parties, stone fruit and beach weather. Add in, Love Actually, Michael Buble and the cute pastel hats you get in Christmas bon-bons – you know, the ones that seriously do not fit anyone’s head and sling over one eye whilst you eat your weight in pav but everyone still loves and insists to wear anyway? Those. That’s my list of reasons why December is my absolute favourite month of the year. And here’s one more: CHRISTMAS LIGHTS.

If you love to hit up the most lit suburbs (literally) each Christmas, then look no further. Here’s where you’ll find Brisbane’s best lighting displays…

posted by Karlicca Culalic December 1, 2017 0 comments

It’s a little cliché but there is a phrase from Eat, Pray, Love that has always resonated with me in regards to personal wellness. It reads you have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings. Like most though, my own personal well being tends to fall second to the bustle of everyday life. So in preparation for Christmas, I’ve found five AMAZING wellness gift experiences from some of Brisbane’s premium day spa’s and very best health centres! That way, you can opt to work them into your own wish lists or gift them to someone special. Whether you are a wellness mama, a busy work-a-bee, a health lover or just someone who needs a bit of R&R, these treats might be just what you need to cap off 2017 and bring in the New Year as the very best version of YOU.

The Fox Hotel’s Trocadero Long Bar

posted by Karlicca Culalic December 1, 2017 0 comments

These days it seems The Fox Hotel is no stranger in the vocab of the token millennial. It is the home of popular neon haunt Dandy’s Bar after all. Perhaps though it’s best-kept secret is right, under, your, nose. Trocadero Long Bar is the darling downstairs space on Melbourne Street, just a skip and hop from Fish Lane and situated perfectly to make this your newest after TAFE and uni hang. With word of a new dessert menu, three girlfriends and I piled into the Fox on a stormy Saturday with our sights set firmly on hearty wet-weather comfort food. Along with a warm sense of hospitality from everyone we encountered, that is exactly what we found.

posted by Karlicca Culalic November 24, 2017 0 comments

In celebration of Montrachet‘s move to the vibrant bustle that is King Street, there will be a mini champagne themed festival held in the laneway occupying Machinery Street. How gorgeous! The Parisian themed affair will include three pop-up bars and offer a selection of twelve premium champagnes for the event’s starry-eyed guests. Think, an assortment of vintage and rosé champagnes accompanied by all your favourite French pastries. Montrachet’s new digs will also mark the opening of a traditional French-style boulangerie with Australian artisan bakers trained by Patrick Delbar from Lyon, France. I can already smell the almond croissants and chocolate eclairs! Tickets are $49pp and in true tradition, they will include a drop of Montrachet’s very finest NV Louis Roederer Brut Premier on arrival…

Bisous! Book tickets here.

THE DETAILS

Where: Machinary Street, Bowen Hills

Gals and guys, gather round. Domestic sales of rosé indicate our blushing fruity favourite is up 4.5 percent, meaning your Batchy nights and darling dinner party’s have guzzled up 183 million litres of the sweet stuff this year. So, what better way to capstone this fantastic achievement than to celebrate in style at Pinknic! Aka, a chic rosé garden party right here in Brisbane. After all, summer is near and that calls for an extreme hydration crackdown…

Lonely Planet names Newstead one of the coolest neighbourhoods in Australia

posted by Karlicca Culalic November 22, 2017 0 comments

It’s official. Lonely Planet, yes, THAT Lonely Planet (to reiterate the very same one that awards accolades to the likes of dreamy Paris and London) has named *our* Newstead one of the three coolest neighbourhoods in Australia. I’m sorry but we can’t help feeling like a proud mum. Territorial even, like a die-hard, day one fan of an underground indie rock band everyone’s just discovered playing on Nova. Alas, it’s no surprise this neck of the woods has made it in the big league! Newstead is a treasure trove of exclusive restaurants, bars and cafe’s alike. So without further ado, here are ten reasons we love this leafy riverside ‘it’ suburb. When I say reasons, I mean more like – fantastic places to consider putting on your mental list of places to eat next. As always though, you’re welcome.

posted by Karlicca Culalic November 16, 2017 0 comments

INCOMING – our busiest month of the calendar is fast approaching! Here are five events you’ll absolutely want to ink into your schedules this week…

#1. A new botanical bar *slash* tropical garden oasis opens up in West End

Brisbane meet Covent Bar, opening TODAY in your West End backyard. It’s a nod to London’s iconic Covent Garden – super-lux, super-vibrant and super lush! Think of this space as a perfect afternoon treat yourself to play catch-up’s with your nearest and dearest and try a selection of Covent’s 100 craft gins. There will be contemporary share-plates as well as Pimms and Aperol Spritz flowing. If you’re feeling adventurous, Covent also has a seasonal house speciality appropriately named The Garden of Eden. It’s a clever mix of Tanqueray gin, absinthe rinse, fresh pressed apple juice, medicinal syrup, charred lime and white pepper tincture. YUM. A haven away from the hustle and bustle of the neighbouring city and BT is all about it!

When: Thursday, 16 November
Where: 142 Boundary St, West End Continue Reading

Nice to meet you, Bar OTTO!

posted by Karlicca Culalic November 15, 2017 0 comments

It’s practically corporate wisdom by the time 5:00 PM Friday afternoon rolls around weekly debriefs and catch-ups are essentially mandatory, and there’s a fresh jewel in the heart of the CBD to be just that. You might even be in the loop about its divine counterpart already – the exquisitely curated Italian cooking that is, OTTO Restaurant (a total BT favourite). After its namesake, Bar OTTO is located at 480 Queen Street. Just ride the elevator to the fourth floor and there you will find a charming bar modestly perched alongside a handsome waterfront view with the Story Bridge intact. Pixie lights and all…
