July has begun, and whether that means you’re steering clear of alcohol for ‘Dry July’, celebrating gift-giving early with a Xmas in July or getting your USA on for a Fourth of July bash this weekend, these things will get you through it.
What you may know and what you may not know…
1. Showroom is on the move
One of our favourite concept storefronts and workshop spaces is on the move. I heard Showroom Brisbane in Paddington is moving to a lush new Edward Street location in the City, where Cloakroom once was. Watch the space for it to open at the end of July.
2. Lindt Love
Is too much chocolate really a thing? That was a rhetorical question; of course it’s not. I’m happy to announce that Queensland is getting it’s first Lindt Chocolate Shop in August and it’s headed for DFO Brisbane – woohoo! The Style girls even have a sneak peek of the 31 Lindor ball flavours you can purchase… so many flavours!
3. Coffee treats
Everything coffee is already a treat; think your morning saviour cup, coffee-flavoured cake, espresso martinis and now… popsicles! New Brisbane café Queen of Pops takes an ice-coffee to the next level with their double ristretto coffee popsicles. The best part is that they sell them in take-home packs!
Bulimba has a new ‘local’ as of Tuesday next week: Barcadia. It’s on Oxford Street, overlooks the Memorial Park and offers local brews and delicious bar snacks and meals by Head Chef Daniel Jones.
“Wait! I have chocolate in my earpiece.”
Feel free to send me any gossip you may have – I’ll kindly read it all!
