Weekends are the best time to catch up with friends and family, but it can often be a costly endeavour. Staying in is the obvious way to stay within budget, but with winter fast approaching, why not take advantage of the last few weekends of sun. We've found some of the best activities for your weekend, while still on a budget.
Soak up the last of the sun while hiking the Mt lofty trail, then treat yourself to a coffee or glass of wine at the top. The hike itself is 7.5 km return, which is about 3 hours walking. When you reach the top, relax in the Summit Cafe and enjoy the view. Fun, active, cheap and the perfect opportunity for a #fitspo post on the gram!
Cost per person: $5-$10
Winter can be tough on your feet, so show them a little love and get yourself a pedicure. Bring a girlfriend with you for a fun girls day out. Temple Day Spa do an incredibly relaxing pedicure, starting with a peppermint soak, followed by a bamboo and spearmint foot scrub and finished with a Moroccan and guava moisturiser. So relaxing!

When's the last time you went to the cinema? Palace Nova at East End (also one of our neighbours) shows all your fav blockbusters, but is also knows for their film festivals. This month until June 12, they will be showcasing the best of Germany with the German Film Festival. A great way to experience something new, all the while enjoying a glass of wine and a choc top of course.
