NAD's new store opening

WHEN:  11th December 6.00pm
WHERE:  NADS Tiffany Plaza, Oxford St, Bondi Junction

I attended the opening of NAD's newest store in Bondi Junction.  It was an intimate affair.


There were yummy canapes and cocktails and a tour around the clinic.


I met some lovely people including Blogger Kylie Ofiu (www.kylieofiu.com).

Me and Kylie Ofiu

At the end of the night we were all given a nice treat.


Eliunt Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tasting

I recently attended a Eliunt Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tasting at the brand new Eliunt kiosk in Westfield Bondi Junction to sample the range of oils.  Not sure what to expect, this is my first foodie tasting so very excited.

Olive oil has such a big part in making successfully delicious meals and canapes. No matter how simple the dish is if you have quality olive oil it will enhance the flavours and make every dish mouthwatering heaven.

Being Italian I thought I knew a lot about olive oil, I grew up with it and we drizzle it on everything.  What I didn't know is the different strengths required for different dishes and how it can alter the taste.

For example, for salad it is recommended that a light and fruity extra virgin olive oil is best, like Vitality from Australia and if you are bread dipping, a strong and heavy oil like the Olivar from Spain.

Chef preparing each dish with a different olive oil

I honestly couldn't pick a favourite, they were all so delicious.

My tasting tapas dishes

With all of the Eliunt oils they help balance out the flavours of each dish.  There is no right or wrong way to use olive oil, it is all purely down to the taste of your palate and what you and your guests prefer.  That is what is great about Eliunt's collection of olive oils from around the world you do not have to fill your pantry with lots of large bottles of olive oil instead the bottles are small & convenient, just the way I like it.  For me its not about the size of the product but about the quality of it.

There are currently 10 oils in the range and I cannot wait when they expand the range further in the future.  Their current range includes amazing oils from Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Tunisia, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, USA and Australia. 

Whole collection in a box gift set

My top three favourites from the collection is Australia, Turkey and Jordan.

The best thing about this collection is the presentation packs.  You can either buy the whole collection in a box set which you will receive a lovely keepsake book explaining each oil and its region, or you can mix and match a small gift box set.

Since attending this launch I have returned and purchased a gift pack for a gift for my aunty.  I was the favourite of the day!

Eliunt can be purchased either online or at Westfield Bondi Junction.

Eliunt packs come in a variety of options including;

The Compendium RRP $74.95

NADS - My first laser hair removal experience


My first experience with laser was in the UK in 2003.  Once tried and never again, it was so painful that it made waxing seem like tickling.  I do not recall the type of laser that was used back then, it was so long ago.

When I returned back to Australia late 2004 after living there for almost 4 years, I told many friends about my laser experience and none of them had ever heard about lasering your hair away!

Years had past and I continued to Veet my legs (waxing was way to painful for me) and wax my underarms (not so painful).  In 2009 I decided to brave lasering again. I had heard and read a lot about the new technology of laser hair removal and there were lots of centres that had popped up everywhere including salons adding it to part of their service.

I tried out a local clinic and they burnt my underarm which scabbed up and was very painful.  That was it for me, no more laser, just waxing from now on.

In 2010 a friend of mine told me about NAD's clinic and said that they were very professional and guarranteed their service.  So I tried them.  They were good.  I had my top lip and underarms done.  Since then I have only had to top up once above lip area.

In the new year I have decided to take it a step further and brave the laser and do my bikini area.

I will post my experience here once I get it done.

Allegra Rhodes 'Ocean Mist' Hand & Nail Creme Review





My product of the moment is Allegra Rhodes 'Ocean Mist' hand and nail creme. The packaging feels Mediterranean and the pump bottle is cute, the right size to fit on the dresser or bathroom cabinet. I like it, its a change from the common tubes that I have at the moment.

The fragrance takes me back when I was travelling around Europe.  Its fresh and light with a blend of fresh bergamot and zesty lemon, layered with jasmine, rose and sandalwood rounded with a divine Oceanic scent.  It's very pleasant on the nose and glides on thinly on the hands absorbing easily.

My overall rating - 4/5

Keeping up with the beauty market


There are so many products and brands entering the market and I wish I could buy and try every single one of them.  With new technology and ingredients, even the packaging are becoming more attractive.

Rewinding five years ago, we didn't have half as many international brands available here.  It was mostly the major brand names with a handful of small international and local brands.

The ability to order online and many countries now posting to Australia has opened a whole new world of beauty heaven for us to indulge in.  Companies like Mecca Cosmetica and Kit Cosmetics also make it easier for us to buy quality products that would not normally be available to us unless you purchase online.

I guess we are more and more becoming aware and exposed to what's on offer as we spend more to look better.  Whether it be magazine articles, websites or even the travelling we do we are more educated and exposed to the latest beauty breakthroughs.

I love walking through DJs and Myer, touching and testing and buying products I've never heard of, to try and see results.  Some work and some don't, this doesn't mean they are crap it's just they may not be suitable for me.  Lucky I have three sisters to share the stuff around if I no longer want them.  But there are way too many coming out that I cannot keep up with them.

Recently my skin decided to have a spaz attack and breakout with pimples and rashes that would sting.  I was given cortisone cremes which worked for a while but became ineffective.  I was then given another creme to calm my skin down which eventually worked.  It took 6 months for my skin to almost return to normal.  I still get the occasional pimple here and there which have left pigmentation marks.  I found this to be very stressful as I have never ever had breakouts before in my life not even through my teenage years so this was very traumatic.

After speaking to a skin therapist I was told that chopping and changing products could of irritated my skin which caused it to develop an atopic dermatitis on my cheeks and chin.  It does make sense since I guess I never gave my skin the chance to get used to a certain product I was using.

So is using a multitude of brands and products beneficial or is it doing more harm than good?  I believe it can be beneficial using it longer term and not confusing the skin but then when a new and improved formula comes out do we buy it immediately and cease using the current product?  I think not.  This is what I was doing.

For the past month I have culled through my beauty cupboard and selected my faves and am sticking to those until they are finished.  Once I am at the stage to review my beauty regime I will introduce one new product at a time so I do not shock my skin.

Has anyone else experienced the same as I have?  I would love to hear from you.

If you are interested in finding out more about the creme that helped my skin recover it's called Elidel.  Apparently you can only have two tubes every six months as the creme is limited on the NHS due to its price.  It is very effective, so if you decide to use it, please see your GP and do not use it generously, you only need a very thin layer and you will need it to last.

Coleman Easy Lounger Review

OMG!  This chair is humongous.  I felt like Alice in Wonderland but camping.  It's an extra large version of those fold up chairs everyone seems to have.

What is there not to like about this chair! It's sturdy and unbelievably comfortable. The recliner is such an amazing part of the chair nothing like kicking back and relaxing with a nice cold beverage watching the world go by.

We used the chair on a recent picnic with some friends. All the guys hovered around it and the girls loved it.  The children, well lets say my son and his friend both had a nap on it, together!

The Coleman Easy Lounger folds away easily into its own carry bag and includes padded headrest, drink holders and even a magazine holder.  Its sturdy and surprisingly lighter than it looks.  It opens in 10 seconds and closes just as easy.  It comes in its own carry bag.


Since we only have one of these and hubby is feeling quite territorial over this chair, I think it is in order to buy me one.  

My overall rating - 5/5

Thank you Kidspot and Coleman for giving me the opportunity in trialling this chair.

Smooze - A delicious healthy treat


Smooze Fruit Ice Review
Will this be the newest health craze that has hit the market?  I think so.  There are not many products out in the market that are healthy, fun, delicious and dairy free, suitable for the lactose intolerant (like me).

I have an open mind when it comes to trying new food, I have never been a fan of coconut drinks, although I love coconut on my lamingtons and that is about as far as it went.  I was eager to try one and could not wait till it was frozen so I opened one and ate it, with the eager assistance of my 5 year old.  I think towards the end we were fighting over it (he won).  

I received 8 to trial, two of each flavour, these only lasted 3 days in my household, they disappeared before I could even get to taste another one.  But that's ok, I went out to the supermarket and stocked up, a box in each flavour and now I'm the hero of the week!

The flavours of each ingredient is equal throughout the whole ice block, no flavour overpowers the other.  It is refreshing, extremely yummy and no guilt tag attached to it. 

There are many ways of indulging in Smooze Fruit ice, try adding it to a smoothie for extra flavour and slushy texture, this was definitely a winner with my son.

Here is a sample smoothie recipe

Smooze Breakfast Buzz Smoothie Recipe (Serves 1) 

Ingredients: 
1 x frozen Smooze Fruit Ice of your choice 
1 x cup of either banana, peaches, berries or mango 
¾ cup milk of your choice (dairy or other) 
1 tspn honey 

Method: 
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. 
Enjoy! 

Optional: 
Looking for a bigger kick to your morning routine but don’t want to add an egg? Include 1 tbsp of your favourite protein powder in the Smooze Breakfast Buzz Smoothie for a filling energy boost. 


Smooze Fruit Ice is available in four flavours – Pineapple + Coconut, Pink Guava + Coconut, Mango + Coconut, and Simply Coconut – and is distributed by Health Attack.

I would love for my son to take these to school but it is not possible to tear it open with your fingers, I would like to suggest this to Smooze, maybe adding a tear easy packaging.

Smooze Fruit Ice ingredients contains Coconut milk with real fruit.  Calories are at a minimum (means I can have two).  They come in 4 delicious flavours Pink Guava & Coconut, Simply Coconut, Pineapple & Coconut and Mango & Coconut.

Smooze Fruit Ice is available in the dessert aisle of supermarkets and independent grocers.  Box of 10 RRP$6.49.

Johnson's Kids Review


Being a mum, you will do anything to make bath time quicker and more enjoyable. Trying to get my son into a bathtub can a challenge but for some reason once he's in there he doesn't want to come out. Washing his hair is another testing challenge.

If you want a way to get your child to willingly hop in the bathtub and scrub themselves clean, I recommend buying fun bath products like Johnson's Kids 2-in-1 Conditioning Shampoo & Top to Toe Wash.


The Top To Toe Wash can be used on both body and hair, which is a great time saver. It has a yummy scent of Watermelon which is a winner with my boy. My son tells me he big and can wash himself and with the No More Tears formula I'm confident that no more tears equals a positive and happy experience for all!

The 2-in-1 Conditioning Shampoo is just as awesome – no need for extra conditioner. It’s a great 2-in-1 product that also saves you time when it comes to washing the kids hair. Leaving it soft and easy to manage.

Overall rating - 4/5

Platinum MC Blogger Event

WHEN: 15th November 6.30pm
WHERE: Platinum Media and Communications HQ

Platinum MC held their first Blogger Night at their Sydney office in the CBD.  It was a first for both of us.  I was extremely nervous to meet the gang and other bloggers as this is my first brand showcase.

We were all let loose around the office to explore and touch, whilst nibbling on canapes and sipping champagne.

There was gorgeous jewellery from Lotus Mendes. Here is a small snapshot of the collection.


Loving the Brights

The latest jelly sandals from Holster were so inviting, I want one in each colour.


And these were oh so cute, for the kiddies


One of their brands, Neutrogena sunblock range.


And endless rows of amazing swimwear, from bikinis to takinis, one piece to mens briefs.  I had a few faves including these mens digital print shorts.




There was a fashion show showcasing Jets current Spring/Summer 2012 Swimwear Collection, “Evolution” – it was sexy, modern and very chic.  I was making a mental note of which ones I would love to try and buy.





I've kept the best bit last the uber awesome candy bar.  I felt like a kid again with many of my faves.  We were able to fill up a little takeaway box full of them.  


It was such a fun evening, I would like to thank Platinum Media and Communications for their hospitality and making me feel very welcome and introducing me to their clients.

Oh no to forget the amaze goodie bag.

Fun at the Bloggers Brunch

The Bloggers Brunch was organised and hosted by Kids Business. I was counting down the days to attend my first Bloggers Brunch, I had no idea what to expect.  I knew who the sponsors were and guest speakers, this got me all excited but I wasn't sure what to do, how to dress, and what was going to be expected of me, so I was quite nervous. When I arrived, there was a large crowd already waiting to enter.  I immediately relaxed once I saw many mums dressed casually and some with their children.

As I walked into the door I grabbed my name tag and was greeted with a lovely smile and received my first gift. An organza bag with lollies with "Bloggers rock" in it (they were delicious too), a book and pen with I 'heart' blogging" printed on the cover (absolutely true) and a nail file, (just what I needed as I broke two nails carrying all my goodies).

Once inside, the atmosphere was electric, it was buzzing with loads of voices, friendly faces and exhibitor tables showcasing their products. 

Dyson
I didn't know where to begin so I headed straight to Dyson Vacuum Cleaners. I love Dyson,
they have made my life so much easier since owning their vacuum cleaner.

I now have my eyes set on another Dyson, The Dyson Digital Slim. Its cordless and lightweight. Its definitely my must-have for Christmas. I tried the one that was on display and it was easy to use and manoeuvre.  I can even vacuum my curtains, stairs and cornices with no problem. There are no barrels or cords to be in the way and I can zip through several rooms without the plug popping out of its socket.  Mind you it only has a battery life of 20 minutes once charged as it is not supposed to replace the conventional cord vacuum cleaner but this won't phase me I want one anyways.

Before handing back the Dyson to the oh so friendly Dyson rep (after attempting to discretely walk away with it), I was handed a gift, a toy vacuum cleaner, it was awesome.  My son will be chuffed when he receives it.


Spotlight
My next pit stop was Spotlight. I love scrapbooking and crafts. There was so much laid out on their table, I was oohing and aaahing at everything. Asked lots of questions and they had all the answers. I touched and played with the display it was fantastic.


Spotlight hold workshop classes if you are interested in learning how to make things or sew. Check their website or contact your local Spotlight for further information.

Before I left I was given a gift bag with lots of goodies for me and my son to explore.










Nads
Moving along to the next table was Nads. They were providing a helpful service to tidy up neglected eyebrows and any stray nose hairs.  I decided to try the nose hair wax, not because I have a hairy nose but to experience it so when I talk to hubby and friends about it I can tell them exactly what to expect.  Maybe I will have the honour to wax a few noses! 

I was extremely surprised that it didn't hurt at all. Once I do hubby's hairy nose, I will be taking pictures and politely bribe him that the pics will be uploaded to facebook if I do not get a Dyson for Christmas! 

Nads also had another new product on display, one that I did not know Nad's did.  It's called Nitwits. This caught my attention as my son has started kindy this year and already there were two nits outbreak, luckily my son did not 
catch them at the time but I like to be armed and prepared.
The beauty of Nitwits is that it's all natural, unlike the chemical ones sold at pharmacies. So it is gentle on the kids scalp and on the nose.



Kambrook
My favourite pit stop was Kambrook. Products that make difficult jobs a breeze, especially for mums like me who dislike the mess and fuss of cooking and find it difficult to create masterpieces.

I found myself getting all excited over the ice cream maker and cake pops, (who would of thought, if only my friends could see me!) I'm quite fussy with ice cream, I don't like them too sweet and to know I am now able to make my own is fab. As for the cake pop maker I had no idea how simple they were to make. Kambrook provides all the necessities to complete a creation and look like a super cook mum.

Kambrook generously gave a choice of an ice cream maker or cake pop maker to each attendee. Inside the goodie bag was also a notebook, A5 size folder of recipes, an apron and cookbook for the little one.




Rust-OLeum
Why haven't I discovered this brand before? Maybe because before this event it was mostly aimed at men, but I am so glad that they exhibited at the brunch. I learnt so much that day and was inspired by some of their displays.
My favourite products were Dry Erase, Frosted Glass and Universal Metallic Paint.

Dry Erase Paint is a smooth, hard finish that creates a white writeable-erasable surface. Once dry, simply use any dry erase markers to draw or write messages and then erase. Lots of fun for the kiddies and parents.

Frosted Glass is a can so it is easy to use and control. It adds a semi-transparent coating for decoration or privacy. It can be used for a million things like frosting a glass tabletop for the outdoors. Decorate boring glass candle holders or bottles like the picture below.

Metallic paint, ooh this was my favourite. Universal is the world's first all-surface spray paint. It is specifically formulated to work on diverse surfaces including wood, plastic, metal, brick, concrete and vinyl. Its ergonomic comfort grip houses a unique trigger mechanism which delivers an advanced spray system that can dispense paint at any angle - even upside down! See the image below on what could be achieved with it. Pretty votive's for Christmas.



After ogling and touching their Rust-Oleum display I was given a goodie bag that contained items shown below.


I totally love arts and crafts and am very fortunate that my 5 year old has also developed a love for it and we can create beautiful art projects together.

Philadelphia 
Philadelphia have created delicious ready-made frosting's for cupcakes and cakes. This takes the mess and fuss out of decorating. There are two flavours Cadbury chocolate and lemon flavour.

Philadelphia have also created some yummy stir through sauces, I now have no excuses when I complain of "lack of time to cook" as these yummy stir throughs can create a meal in less than 15 minutes. Available flavours Thai Green Curry and Tomato & Italian Herb.
I taste tested some food that was on offer from sweet cupcakes to savoury ones. They were light that the taste of cream cheese was barely noticeable but the flavours were dancing on my tastebuds.
I walked away with a lovely little cooler bag stuffed with Philadelphia goodies to try at home.


Bevilles
Jewels, charms and engraved personalised rings and necklaces were all on display. So many beautiful pieces to choose from. There are stores nationwide and you can also purchase on their website.

Here is an image of my favourite ring, it was so nice. See how flattering it was on my finger? In the Beville's goodie bag there was a nifty jewellery cleaner, catalogues and a $20 gift voucher to spend (already been there and spent it).





Brown Sugar
This is a clothing company with so many beautiful pieces, I didn't know where to start.  Sadly, I did not get the opportunity to get try them on as I wasn't the only eager parent there that liked their clothes.  Oh well there is always the Internet. 






Thank you Kids Business for make my day memorable and creating such an opportunity for us Bloggers. It was so much fun and I got to meet some lovely people, and I learnt stuff about some big name brands out there, and what they do.

Take This Waltz Movie Review


Directed by: Sarah Polley
Starring: Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen, Sarah Silverman, Luke Kirby

When Margot (Michelle Williams) meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), their attraction is almost instant. In her attempts to remain faithful she resists the temptation to be with Daniel as she is married to Lou (Seth Rogen) a cookbook writer. 

The film begins in Louisbourg Nova Scotia, which Margot is visiting to write material for a travel brochure and has her first interaction with Daniel. They meet again on a plane returning to Toronto and happen to sit next to each other. They share a strange intimate connection like they have known each other for ages and that this encounter would be their last.

To complicate this further Daniel lives across the street. The chemistry between them is so powerful you just know that they will end up together. Their impromptu rendezvous between them capture the intensity of their attraction but they remain innocent.

In the midst of all this Lou's sister has a big presence in the film. Geraldine (Sarah Silverman) is a recovering alcoholic who is the rock in Margot's life but this, changes. With Lou finding out about Margot’s feelings for Daniel and cracks starting to show underneath Geraldine’s happy fa├žade, the once strong bond she shared with Geraldine falls apart.

This is not your typical romcom, its unconventional turn is refreshing and can be true to reality and is what makes this movie a beautiful story. This powerful film about fidelity keeps you thinking and leaves you feeling somewhat connected to the characters.

I was quite surprised by the nudity in the film especially for Michelle Williams. But then again this is not your typical mainstream movie. I'm becoming more and more fond of Michelle and her amazing guise to portray a character and make us believe it’s real.

I found this movie thoroughly enjoyable, warm and funny I highly recommend it.



Overall rating: 4/5

Chanel my belle


Everyone is a collector of something whether it be magazines, toys, jewels, handbags, at the very least clothing.

I'm a Chaneloholic, there I said it.  I collect all things Chanel.  In trying to work out when my passion (or you could say obsession) with Chanel began, I searched deep into my past. I began recalling lovely outings with my mother as a tween.  The bus trip into town to David Jones and other stores, the final pitstop was Chanel Boutique on Pitt St.  My mother would chat to the assistants who knew her well whilst we browsed at the bags and clothes.  I would admire the perfume bottles and their scents.  On many visits the assistants would always give me a little gift to take away and I would treasure this for weeks.

I realised my mother also had a passion for beautiful things.  My mum told me when she was young her father went on regular trips to Paris for business and bring back beautiful hats and clothing for her mum and she recalls some were Chanel.  My mum recalls the fabric and buttons and how they were all beautifully made.  Growing up my mum always made our clothes, mind you, she used to be approached my companies like DJs to make clothes for them!

Fashion houses and designers were not household names back in the 80s unless you were in fashion or media.  These days even 10 year olds know the difference between a Prada and a Louis Vuitton.  I was usually aware of these brands when I was a teen but had no concept of their value.  I used to read articles and books about these brands but it felt it was part of the world of models and actresses only.

Over the years my collection of Chanel items grews slowly.  Once I started travelling overseas I was exposed to all these wonderful brands in a much bigger way in Europe and England. This is where I gained most of my knowledge, Keeping in mind that the internet was not widely used in the 80s and 90s like it is now.
My obsession for Chanel started in England where every Boots, Selfridges and other department stores stock Chanel.  Whenever I made a purchase I was given a lovely promo gift to add to my collection.  I stored all my lovely things in a box.  Upon my return back home to Sydney I stored alot of my collection in the garage along with wedding presents while we were renovating our unit. 

Our garage got broken into and everything was taken, unfortunately we did not have insurance so we lost everything.  All the material things did not matter as they were replaceable and the truth is, alot of my wedding presents were naff anyway.  But the one thing that broke my heart was my 12 years of collection of rare items of Chanel.  That little box of priceless items that regardless if I was insured or not was irreplaceable.

I stopped collecting anything after this incident for a few years as afraid I was of afraid it.  In the year 2000, I decided to start collecting again, I couldn't help it its in my blood to collect.  So my new Chanel collection began.

It started off with miniature bottles, leaflets, postcards, promotional and transgressed to books, accessories, makeup, perfume and nail polishes.  This is my biggest collection 'Les Vernis'.




As you can see from the photo it is quite a large stash of nail polishes, a few have gone along the way.  I do not know if I would ever get the chance to use them all up over my life time as I keep adding to them but they bring me so much joy.  I don't buy just any colour, 95% of this collection is limited edition and launch colours.

My Chanel collection has expanded so much that I have half a glory box (chest) full of stuff inside them and every now and again I pull them out to look at.  I will not show everything I have just my favourites. I will one day have them in special display containers and shelves as many are beautiful to display, just like my Snow globe.


Isn't it gorgeous.

It feels special when I receive gifts for being a loyal customer.  Receiving beautiful items like this globe makes me want to shop more.

Anyway this is my story on how I became a Chanel admirer (it sounds alot nicer).

I never married a millionaire to shower me with Chanel and fill my house with it, maybe that's a good thing, I think there would of been a serious problem if I did, I can just imagine what my husband would say if I had married a millionaire 'it's me or the Chanel', and I would say 'Chanel darling always Chanel'.
