10 Things to do over Easter Long Weekend 

#1 Brunch Date

It's the one word text message we love receiving from our mate on a Sunday. And the answer is always, of course, "Where do I meet you?".

Treat yourself this Easter long weekend to a brunch featuring your fave egg combo, a special hot cross bun, and some chocolate eggs to finish because desert breakfast is definitely a thing. Just make sure to check that your usual spot is open over the long weekend!

#4 Market Day

You love a weekend market vibe, buuuuut come Saturday and Sunday your body is all about the lazy sleep-in.

With an extra couple days up your sleeve it's time to do all the wellness things you always say you will over the weekend... like, stock up on oodles of fresh produce at the local farmer's market, buy yourself some flowers to freshen up your pad, do some epic cooking and meal prep with said produce and bask in your all-round fabulousness.

#5 Sweat it Out

Chances are that over the long weekend you'll be consuming a lil' extra sugar and fancy fermented liquids from wine glasses. And that's okay, you deserve it. Balance it out with a workout or two. There's nothing like movement and a good sweat to keep the sluggish vibes at bay. Not to mention you can enjoy all those hot cross buns, easter bunnies, and weekend treats guilt-free.

#9 Have a Picnic

What beats a leisurely picnic and barbecue with family and friends (including furry ones). Message your crew now and line it up on the day with the best weather forecast. Make sure to pack a basket of deliciousness, a couple bottles of vino, and some games for the kids (including the big kids).

#10 Go Zen

After all your weekend escapades, make sure to leave some space to relax and restore. We recommend rounded out the long weekend with a restorative session of yin yoga and meditation so you can start the next week bright-eyed and zen-like.
