The blackest of all sheep

posted by Emmy O'Neill December 14, 2017 0 comments

Hiding in the industrial streets of Woolloongabba is my favourite of all the coffee shops! I am almost tempted to not give away the address for fear that all the hipsters of Brisbane will travel far and wide just to get a taste of one of Brisbane’s most perfectly extracted espresso. Black Sheep is more than a coffee shop. It is an iconic, right of passage for all coffee lovers…or tea lovers, or hot chocoalate lovers or chai lovers…[the staff at Black Sheep are a very inclusive bunch].  Continue Reading

At the movies: SHOT CALLER

posted by Emmy O'Neill November 23, 2017 0 comments

I’m not normally someone who sees a movie without watching the trailer first. I like to know what I am getting myself into… and for the record I normally pick ROM-COMS “Oh hello It’s Complicated”. But today I was feeling a little spontaneous and thought to myself, live on the edge and see a movie you know nothing about.

I blame Carrie Bradshaw for my unrealistic love affair with Jimmy Choo. In case you missed the whole SATC fabulousness (series box set junkie over here) Jimmy Choo is one of the most iconic shoe designers in the world! And I have to say, Jimmy Choo handbags make me go weak at the knees.  Continue Reading

A Helping Hand With Cart-A-Lot

posted by Maddie Vlismas August 10, 2017 0 comments

Here at Brisbane Threads we love functionality and we’ve stumbled across the most genius of inventions; Cart-A-Lot!

Cart-A-Lot is Australia’s first foldable cart and is a start up company run by an Australian family from South Australia. Rebecca & Anthony Keain had the idea on an overseas holiday in 2o14 when they saw a woman with her three children at a restaurant pull out what looked like folded stroller from under their table. The Keain’s watched the woman “unfold it in one easy action, load it up and leave the restaurant with her children and her belongings all simply in tow.”

They looked to buy their own and when they couldn’t find one in Australia- they built it themselves.

The cart can hold up to 70kg, meaning it can be used to cart children, dogs, beach gear, shopping, sports equipment; you name it! Some of their added accessories can convert the cart into an esky, shopping trolly and much more. It’s quick and easy folding action is one the cart’s best features, meaning you won’t spend half of your trip having to assemble it.

It has solid, rubber wheels and a powder coated steel frame with a durable polyester fabric meaning the Cart-A-Lot is ready for anything. The Cart-A-Lot also comes in an off road model too! It folds down to a super compact size (79cm H x 51cm W x 19cm D) and can fit in most car boots, or even be hung on a wall at home.

For families, Cart-A-Lot is a saviour and can save you so much time and hassle when on the go. No more juggling kids and toys and whatever else there may be- just pop it all in the cart. Even if you don’t have a young family, Cart-A-Lot is just as handy for beach trips, barbecues, strolling through a market or carrying sports gear around.

Accessories and add-ons compliment cart use and include a cover, a waterproof liner and even an umbrella!

Adulting (verb): to do grown up things

posted by Emmy O'Neill August 4, 2017 0 comments

Adulting (verb): to do grown up things and hold responsibilities and that make you be considered to be a grown up.

I know a lot of our generation kind of baulk at the idea of adulting. Often we feel like we fail at being an adult. Being responsible and grown up can be hard sometimes. No need to sugar coat it. It’s not that we don’t want to grow up and responsible, but that we just don’t seem to have it together all of the time.

One way to up your adulting game is to take responsibly for your health. Continue Reading
