3. Showroom Brisbane

Our next tip would be taking a little time for you, we just love the creative space at Showroom Brisbane and think you will too. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the big smoke and escape upstairs at 104 Edward Street. The gorgeous shop is filled with light and lots of little bits and bobs to treat yourself to or maybe a gift for a friend or lover. Below are a few of our favourites (it was hard to stop at 5), head to their website or instagram and see for yourself.

Dosha Balancing Kapha Tea
We love the "Dosha Balancing Kapha Tea" when we are looking for something cosy and nourishing but have hit our daily quota for caffeine. The Broad Place's herbal tea blend is an invigorating mix that kick starts the mind and body and will warm you from the inside out. Find it here.

Soak Society Soak
Soak Society's original wellness soak combines the freshness of peppermint, the cleansing qualities of rosemary, the calming and anti-inflammatory properties of juniper berry, and zesty bergamot to promote detoxification and soothe your soul. It contains 100% natural ingredients and we love it for a soak and relax after a big and busy day in the chilly concrete jungle. Find it here.

Ceramic Candles
In winter there is nothing better than lighting a candle after a long day, which is why we chose these gorgeous candles from "The Candle Library". We just love the ceramic mugs which are handmade by Australian potters and designed to be used long after the flame goes out. Our ideal situation would be a soaking in a hot tub with some "Soak Society" and one of these babies burning. Find it here.

Scarves and Wraps
The "Once was Lost" Ethopian hand woven scarves are our idea of a winter necessity. Perfectly paired with any outfit (for us it's our #activewear), whether you need an extra layer in the morning fog or just want to throw on a practical accessory Showroom has got you sorted. Find them here.  

Bee One Third Honey & wooden stick
As you know at KTB we love local and are using Bee One Third honey in store on our acai bowls. Bee One Third are Brisbane's urban beekeeping pioneers. With European beehives on rooftops, in backyards and community spaces, each jar captures the flavours of neighbourhoods around South East Queensland. You can buy your own little pot in store at Showroom and we could resist the honey stick too - I mean come on how cute is that! Find them here and here!

4. Shri Yoga Meditation Express

Experience deep rest and relaxation for mind, body and soul. Meditation is a rich and nourishing form of self-care and is perfect for balancing out your more dynamic practices. In these guided meditations you don’t have to still your mind or calm yourself down. Instinctive Meditation encourages you to explore your own natural rhythms, to find the most deeply replenishing ways to restore balance in your day.

Wednesdays at 4.30pm-5.15pm and Tuesday from 7.10pm-7.40pm. Express classes are just $10!
