It can get to August and feel that winter has been here for ages, and spring is a hop, skip and a week around the corner.

Here are our top picks for seeing out the season with a bang…

Melbourne International Film Festival

Not long left of the 65th Melbourne International Film Festival…but there are still a few gems left to catch if you get in quick

Barista – because it’s Melbourne and you know how seriously we take our coffee

Certain Women – Follow three women as they navigate life in trying circumstances

Toni Erdmann – screwball silliness with subtitles, what could be better?

Melbourne Writers Festival

Embracing all things written, this two-week festival has something for everyone. Covering talks, exhibitions and lively debates – it promises to get your thinking caps on and creativity flowing.

Happy Century to Roald Dahl! In honour of the infamous children’s author’s would-be 100th birthday, head over to the exhibitionshowcasing some of his most loved works book covers from around the world.

Tim Costello, CEO of World Vision Australia is speaking On Faith – reflecting on the shared humanity that brings us all together in trying times. Samantha Gash {LINK TO SAM GASH PIECE} is running across India in association with World Vision.

Pop in for a conversation at the Dumbo Feather Caravan – you may just find some Loving Earth treats to snack on as you chat!

Yoke Yoga Winter Retreat

As we wave goodbye to winter wave hello to Yoke yoga Torquay! Founder Chris is hosting a winter retreat on the 19th-21st August. It’s the perfect time to rest, restore and nourish before we spring into September.

Can’t make the full weekend? Pop along this Saturday 13th for the grand opening party of Yoke Torquay and enjoy a free yoga class.

Stuck in the city? Go see what the team have to offer at their Union Street Studio.

Get creative and crochet!

We’re big fans here of Pip Lincoln and what could be better to show off these many months of months cosied up on the sofa than this beaut of a blanket?

See winter isn’t so bad hey? Still, we’ll be welcoming that sunshine and longer days when they get here!

What do you love about winter? Comment below and we’ll see if we can brighten your day 🙂
