The best bits of Queanbeyan and surrounds.

Wednesday = wine, right? This new event series says yes

Wednesday = wine, right? This new event series says yes

For most of us, Wednesday rolls around with a sense of desperation – so far from the beginning of the week and yet so far from the weekend. Three more days of making lunches, dropping kids at school and meeting the needs of clients or bosses.

Businesswomen Lib Ferreira and Jeanene Kennedy-Evans are here to save us.


They’ve teamed up to create new hump day event series Live Your Best Life: six separate events to be held on Wednesday nights at The Pavilion on Northbourne. Each event combines wine tasting and talks by guest speakers, and professional headshot if you’d like one (Lib’s a photographer). 

C! News editor Bree Element is guest speaker at the event on Wednesday 12 February 2020, divulging the details on self confidence.

“Our goal is to give women a boost of energy and to make them feel connected,” Lib says.

“We’ve lined up so many inspiring speakers for this series. The talks are designed to empower women on topics like managing money, mastering social media, learning to love your body, career advice and reducing our waste.”

Future speakers include author of The Joyful Frugalista and host of podcast This Abundant Life, Serina Bird, Zero Waste Revolution advocate Katrina Cachia and Francesca Droulias from Styled by Francesca (below).


Lib is the visionary behind her own photography business, Lib Creative, while Jeanene owns Winederlust, a local wine events business that hosts wine lunches and home wine tasting experiences (childminding included).

Live Your Best Life attendees enjoy a flight of three wines on arrival and antipasto platters, and have the chance to pose for a professional headshot captured by Lib. 

Tickets $35, from Eventbrite. View details of the event series here.
