Towards the end of this month, Brisbane will play host (for the first time in fact) to a festival of sorts, celebrating food, wine, coffee, the outdoors and lifestyle in general.   Enrich Brisbane is an innovative, interactive showcase that steps outside the boundaries of your typical ‘food and wine’ expo by incorporating a whole lifestyle […]

NOT – Gillian’s Garden Cafe – 999 Stanley St, East Brisbane

Sigh.  Gillian’s Garden Cafe has so much potential; lovely food and beautiful surroundings however their far too close-to-zero care factor was a real let down when MM and I sat for breakfast here recently. Nestled in amongst the lovely greenery of the Cottage Garden Nursery, Gillian’s Garden Cafe couldn’t be better as far as ambience, […]

HOT – Urban Bloom Floral Delivery Service

Here’s something a little different – no coffees, vialis 40mg no cakes, no booze or burgers.  Instead, it’s a review on a local, home grown subscription based floral delivery service.  Urban Bloom is bringing sexy back to homes and boardrooms alike in the Brisbane city and surrounding suburban areas; from small arrangements as a beautiful […]

HOT – Hamptons Home Living – 180 La Trobe Terrace, Paddington.

This is without a doubt the best venue in Brisbane that I’ve been to when it comes to enjoying a view, ailment in conjunction with my first and favourite meal of the day .  Not only is the outlook exceptional at Hamptons Home Living, price but so too the food, the coffee, the service….the whole […]

HOT – Max Brenner – Shop 1.1 and 1.2, Stanley St Plaza, Southbank

Ok, so Max Brenner and his wicked stores don’t need much by the way of introduction, so I’m just gonna tell it how it is.  There’s always a queue, if not 10 or so deep it’s well out the door, particularly in the evenings.  There’s a general lack of order and grace in the whole […]

Jan Powers has taken a leap of faith and brought her farmers markets to the quirky Logan Rd strip in Stones Corner – otherwise home to a few hit ‘n miss cafes and clothing shops alike, store plenty of empty run down stores and a mish-mash of people from all walks of life. Stones Corner […]

HOT – Home Store & Cafe – 20 Stewart Rd, Ashgrove.

With only a vague idea of where we were heading, store and a small battle with the street directory, order MM and I had worked ourselves into a state of reluctance and mild anxiety as we made the trip to Home Store & Cafe in Ashgrove – a side of town we’re not too familiar […]

HOT: The French Corner – 240 Enogerra Rd, Newmarket

When it comes to interior decorating, ask I haven’t got a creative bone in my body and am useless at visualising how colours palettes of walls, floors, furniture etc can be harmonious.  One thing I know however, is that MM and I are in need of a kick-arse, bold, make-a-statement mirror for the dining room […]

HOT: Little Jane St – 5C Winn St, Fortitude Valley

Little Jane St is brainchild of the lovely Alarna Zinn. Having spent the last few years selling her gorgeous paper wares through her online store as well as third-party stores around the country, price shoppers can now get their hands on Alarna’s lovely products at her very own Brisbane store.   Alarna has packed a […]

HOT: Nook, 19 Browning Street, West End

Tucked away next to an old boarding house in Browning Street, view West End, is the delightful Nook, which opened in August 2009. Mid last year, hop owner Michelle Gillies very creatively set about turning the front room of her home into her very own ‘treasure trove of handmade, eco and indie finds’ (in Michelle’s […]
