Kina Grannis is best-in-show.

If you are wondering what a lucky break mixed with tenacity and a dash of talent look like, then take a squizz at YouTubes latest prodigy, Kina Grannis. She began singing at the age of four in her bedroom to her teddies, and her career officially launched some 15 years later with her first professional clip […]

Tiger Moth Joy Rides…up,up, and away!

Oh my golly goodness wrapped up in a Hermes scarf and donning the signature leather helmet of the pilots of yesteryear. Yes – this is a dramatic experience. Yes – you will feel like you should be battening down the hatches (I don’t think I know what that even means). Yes – it reminded me […]

Platinum Nightclub is very GC.

With resident DJ’s The Stafford Brothers at the helm on their visits back to the coast, Platinum really has all bases covered when it comes to post midnight partying.  Since opening its doors in 2004, Platinum Nightclub has become an unrivalled symbol on the Australian club scene – and known worldwide as a recognisable club […]


Japanese Rockabilly. It’s a thing baby.

So I’ve got a major thing for the Japanese Rockabilly movement. It was really brought to my attention when I saw the film clip for the Peter Bjorn and John song, ‘Nothing to worry about’. It took me back to the days of watching Danny Zuko shake that leather clad bod as he got up […]


It feels like chocolate mousse!

With only an hour (again) up my sleeve, I raced into spaQ. I hadn’t had a chance to check out the treatment list (again) so I arrived with what must now be a regular phrase heard at this spa, “I have an hour, make me relax please!”. The reception staff member, Suzie, picks the 30min […]


Have you Lanie Lane’d lately?

So it’s obvious that she is beautiful. Having just been USA side to work with Jack White of The White Stripes fame, she must have serious chops as well. We take a lot of notice of who is on the rise and when we had the chance to have Lanie with us at our property […]

Coffee Scrub

Coffee and kelp help to contour.

When you are approached by a beautiful stranger seeking to use you as a guinea pig (of sorts) for the range of treatments at a new five star spa, you would be forgiven for thinking that the person is a nut and that you should high tail it out of there as quick as your […]


Young Adults should be kept in cages

Charlize Theron is a hot mess in this ‘Mean Girls’ for adults.

Kings of Leon Gold Coast 2011 review.

Kings of Leon Wednesday 9th November – Gold Coast Convention Centre – Presented by Frontier Touring It’s not often that you get your sex lit on fire by bonafide rock gods on the Gold Coast, so when Kings of Leon took the stage for their highly anticipated concert on a balmy Wednesday night, you could […]


The sweetest melancholy

In one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2012, ‘Melancholia’ takes us through the devastating depths of depression and the inability of us, as a race, to see the good in what we have, versus the pain in what we do not have. The basic plot borders on sci-fi and leaves you wondering what […]


Kanye’s way or the highway

Kanye is the creme de la creme. You can catch him in Australia in just a few weeks!


It’s a Big Day Out

The Big Day Out 2012 is gearing up once again for a HUGE year with an epic lineup of popular acts from around the globe. Are you going?


The BnE boys are an absolute delight

From their beginnings years ago in the Aussie hip hop scene, to them consolidating their place in Australias music history books as one of the most successful Australian acts of all time, these boys have always been all class- all the way.
