  • HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! // Flashback to the launch of Issue Two - Peppermint founder and editor-in-chief Kelley with US environmental scientist, model, activist and entrepreneur Summer Rayne Oakes. The next issue is our special 10th Anniversary Issue 🎉🎉🎉 and we’d LOVE to hear from our beloved community on what Peppermint’s meant to you over the years. We’ll print a selection of the comments posted below in our next issue - we can’t wait to hear from you! ❤️ #10yearsofpeppermint #peppermintmagazine
  • If you love vintage frocks and you can get to Brissie from now until 19 August, we recommend you make a beeline for The Bowerbird and the Bride - an exhibition of exquisite bridal gowns from the vaults of award-winning costume designer Marion Boyce. This dreamy collection of dresses has been gathered together by the designer since her childhood - and we have an interview with the lady herself over on our website! 💕
  • Well done to all involved in the beautiful fashion performance -  Bulmba-Barra (when bare feet touch the earth) at the @cairnsindigenousartfair 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 (head to our IG stories to see the designers). Pictured: @chantalhenley 💛 #cairnsindigenousartfair #ciaf #indigenousfashion #indigenousart
  • “I didn’t know what I was going to do in life, weaving was a childhood memory, which turned into a career. I didn’t choose it, it chose me.”

  • “The current food industry is slowly changing, but there’s still so much work to do. It would certainly help if we all understood the price of real food and the work that goes into producing it. Supporting small farmers and producers is a start - we could probably all learn more about how food is produced, which would allow us to make more ethical decisions.” 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
Read these and more wise words from chef @darrenrobertsonfood in Issue 37, which is on newsstands now! Darren’s one of many experts appearing at Brisbane’s Regional Flavours festival on 21 and 22 July - a weekend dedicated to celebrating amazing food and wine from across Queensland. If you fancy hearing from celebrity foodies including the Masterchef judges, Sarah Wilson and Katherine Sabbath, as well as visiting a huge producer market and enjoying free music and kids activities (as well as delicious food and wine, of course), we can think of no better place to be!
