GC- FAMOUS FOR FUN
The holiday season is nearly here and this time of year the Gold Coast is no doubt one of the hottest spots for families to visit.
Overseas guests and people from all around Australia love this city as the weather is magical and there are so many fun things for the entire family to enjoy.
Beautiful Kylie Fraser, mum of two and the gorgeous face behind the popular blog and Instagram page- Love Little Big- reveals all her favourite places in her current hometown.
Kylie is a Melbourne girl who has been calling the Gold Coast home from the beginning of the year and today this ever- so- stylish mum reveals her most loved spots around town- to ensure your stay in GC will be a memorable one.
ML&S: Please give us a short description of your life on the Gold Coast?
Kylie: I moved to the Gold Coast from Melbourne in January this year with my husband Josh and kids Ted- 5 and Emmy- 1. My husband is a development coach for the Gold Coast Suns AFL team.
ML&S: Tell us about your Love Little Big blog and IG?
Kylie: I started Love Little Big Instagram while I was pregnant with Emmy. I always had people asking where I bought Ted’s gorgeous clothes from, so I thought it would be a great outlet to share all my kids/baby fashion finds. It was also a good way to document and share my pregnancy with my followers. Each week I would post a “baby bump” shot. The Love Little Big blog came later- I launched this in August 2014 with my BFF Celeste, who along with her one-year-old daughter Estelle makes up the other half of Love Little Big.
ML&S: What do you love most about living in your current city?
Kylie: The weather- it’s always beautiful, so we spend a lot of time with the kids playing outdoors.
ML&S: Favourite park?
Kylie: There are so many great parks here but it’s hard to go past the big park at Kurrawa Beach in Broadbeach- it’s fully enclosed and has lots of different things to keep the kids happy.
ML&S: Your top 3 kids stores?
Kylie: Hurley Burley Toys in Ferry Rd, Southport have great toys. Dragonfly in James St, Burleigh- its a gorgeous little shop with beautiful clothing and LimeTree kids in Arundel have a great selection of toys and kids interior products.
ML&S: And for yourself?
Kylie: Designer Forum at Robina Town Centre, not only do they have great clothes they also have nice jewellery and candles. Joy Hysteric in Broadbeach is a gorgeous fashion boutique; I recently bought a sheer Alice McCall skirt and top from there and St Bart’s in Ferry Rd has the most divine selection of homewares.
ML&S: Best coffee in town?
Kylie: I’m actually not a coffee drinker myself but my girlfriends love Nook at Burleigh. I usually get myself a chai latte or coconut water.
ML&S: What do you enjoy doing most with your family on weekends?
Kylie: Heading to the park or the beach.
ML&S: When you get some “me time” you love?
Kylie: Dinner and movies dates with hubby.
ML&S: Fave place to eat out with the little ones?
Kylie: With the kids we usually just go to the Mermaid Beach Surf Club, they have a kids room there and it’s very relaxed.
ML&S: For a nice dinner with hubby?
Kylie: Josh and I both love Hellenika at Nobbys Beach- it’s a Greek restaurant and the lamb shanks and zucchini chips are AMAZING!
ML&S: Coolest place to have brunch?
Kylie: BSKT cafe at Nobbys Beach, they have a play area for kids and yummy healthy food and juices.
ML&S: You should never leave GC until you have?
Kylie: This will sounds cliché but you have to go to at least one theme park if you are on the GC with kids. Ted’s favourite is MovieWorld.
ML&S: A couple of non- touristy areas or sights that people should definitely visit?
Kylie: Tallebudgera Creek is a great little (inlet) beach and perfect for kids and Burleigh Rainforest Walk, for the wild life and incredible views.
ML&S: Best weekend getaway from GC is?
Kylie: Byron Bay- it takes less than 1 hour from our place so we love heading down there whenever we can.
ML&S: If in the mood for some fine wining and dining?
Kylie: I head to Hank Dining & Bar in Broadbeach- it has delicious tapas & cocktails.
