Happy Summer Daze – The science behind why we love summer

Summer makes us happier… well, that’s what the science says. We certainly feel blissed out by daily Frosty Fruits, sundowners with mates and post-swim naps under the fan, but it turns out that it’s the simplicity of sunshine and warmer weather that literally changes our
brains and bodies for the better.

House inspo with Taya of Goldie’s Dress Hire

Twenty-five year old Taya Calder-Mason, owner of successful Newcastle designer dress hire business Goldie’s, is a self-described creative and has already accomplished so much professionally.

Coffee in the Newcastle ‘burbs: Your backstreet guide

If you’re like us and your cup of molten caramel caffeine is often the highlight of your day, then Emma has prepared this guide especially for you.

Life lessons from Ted Lasso

If you’ve spent any time with our Content & Marketing Strategist, Hannah, you will have probably heard a Ted Lasso reference or two. Some may use the word ‘obsessed’, though Hannah prefers to say she’s just passionate about a good story. After endless tidbits of info being dropped into random conversations on a daily basis, we’ve finally let her write a story about her favourite show and the life lessons we can take away from it.

10 things you probably didn’t know about tea (but should if you drink it)

Some recent controversy in the Swell office led to a lot of discussion about the right or wrong way to make a cup of tea. Some of us (ahem, Kristy and Bec) prefer just a teaspoon of milk to their black tea, while others (everyone else) enjoy a more medium brew with a good dash of milk.
