Give natural remedies for anxiety a go

It was coming to the end of another semester at university and it felt like I had a million things to do. Between final essays and studying for exams, not to mention finishing up an internship while still keeping a part time job, it’s fair to say things started to get quite stressful. I felt my productivity was dropping dramatically, so I sought natural remedies for anxiety to help myself get back on track.

It was important to me that the products I used were natural, and I was thankful to discover PPC Herbs. Their Stress Plex was exactly the remedy I was looking for to sooth my anxiousness and get back to working efficiently. Exams and assignments are finally done and dusted, and I don’t think I could’ve gotten through without them.

Your one stop for bond loans QLD wide

There’s no denying moving out of home can be tough – and expensive to say the least. What with purchasing the necessary furnishings and appliances, not to mention the actual move. I know personally I didn’t calculate all of the costs associated with moving and when I was approved as a tenant for a rental property, I was hardly prepared to meet the financial requirements.

Not wanting to miss out, I spoke to Bond Loans QLD to help me out. Not only could they assist with bond loans QLD wide, but they also helped to cover the cost of my removalists and utility setups. Without them I’d still be stuck at home and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Berwick display homes that are as unique as you are!

Investing in property has always been a dream of mine. My parents were firm believers in investment properties and have since experienced success because of them. I was determined to follow in their footsteps, so was sure to research all of my options before putting my money towards anything. For me, finding a property that would attract potential families meant it was in a great location close to schools, shops, restaurants and other modern amenities, and I knew that Berwick display homes had just that. More than just this however, I was looking for an estate whose homes felt unique, and I found that in Bloom.

They were able to customise my home to look and feel truly one of a kind, and it wasn’t long after the build that I had renters moving in. I would definitely recommend Bloom for anyone looking to invest.

You’ll love their website design Melbourne wide

On the back of our success from our physical retail stores, and after a lot of demand gathered from our social media pages, we knew it was time for us to open a web store. Our customers outside of Victoria were crying out for a way they too could buy from us, and with the help of Splashbox, we were able to do just that.

It was extremely important to us that the feel and look of the website closely correlated to the overall vibe we had tried to create in our retail spaces. Being a high end product, our stores definitely oozed luxury, style and exclusivity and we wanted the website to reflect this too. Thus, it became very clear to us, and important, that who we chose to design our website would be able to work within our parameters and make our vision a reality. More than this, as the website needed to be setup for e-commerce, it was essential that the developers specialised in this type of design.

It was clear after our first meeting with Splashbox that they were the obvious choice to help us create our website. Not only were they experts in e-commerce, but we seemed to be in sync in what we believed the finished product should look like. I would go so far as to say they do the best website design Melbourne wide. Now that our website is up and running, we couldn’t be happier with what was delivered, and would not hesitate in recommending them for your web store.

The best range of womens shoes on the web

I’d like to think I’m pretty well versed when it comes to all things fashion. I definitely picked up my interest in fashion from my mother who I recalled to be effortlessly stylish growing up. She would seemingly glide into a room, always put together, whether she was picking me up from school or going out to dinner. It was more than just her clothes that made her the way she was, it was in every detail of her fashion; it was her hair, her makeup and her accessories. Oh how I remembered her accessories, most notably, her enviable collections of shoes.

She seemed to have an endless supply of footwear coming out of her wardrobe, each more beautiful than the last. To be honest, it was more often than not that I would see a bag from Novo Shoes poking out of her wardrobe. So naturally, when I say she influenced my fashion and sense of style, it was inevitable that I too would have an enormous amount of shoes. For many, womens shoes are more than just something to protect your feet, it’s a statement of who you are. I was pretty lucky that I learnt early on, from my mother, that Novo Shoes understood this mantra too, so a large part of my shoes come from them. In short – for any women out there looking for some new stylish shoes, they’ve got you covered, take it from two generations of fashion obsessed women!

When any old engagement ring just won’t do!

Of course I wanted to propose to my girlfriend eventually, I just wanted to make sure she really wanted it. It was following my best friend and wife-to-be’s engagement party that I knew the pressure was on. Sure, I’d got some hints following my girlfriend’s best friend’s recent engagement, and a few more following our 12th anniversary, but this time she was pretty serious. I felt a little guilty for making her wait, so I knew I couldn’t turn up with just any engagement ring.

For this reason I knew I would need to speak to the experts at Bensimon Diamonds to help me chose the perfect ring and, as expected, I left the store with something I knew would impress. I proposed last week and she, not so surprisingly, said yes, but I was happy to hear that the ring is exactly what she would’ve chosen herself!

Rental bond loans take the hassle out of moving

rental-bond-loans

It took a while to convince my boyfriend to move out with me. He’d been living at home his whole life so wasn’t immediately ready to leave his creature comforts, whereas I was quite ready to give up the share house lifestyle. Nearing my leases end, my boyfriend and I applied for an apartment and were happily approved, however I was quick to realise that getting my bond back wouldn’t be as easy. Of course I couldn’t expect my boyfriend to use all of his savings on a bond and I knew rental bond loans were perfect in this scenario. Rent Bond Move were great in finding me a solution and had no fees associated with paying out the bond early which I would be doing once my existing bond was released. My boyfriend and I are happily in our new place and we have Rent Bond Move to thank.

Where to find an amazing river cruise Melbourne wide

Cruise boat sails on the Yarra River in Southbank

 

As an office manager, I am responsible for organising and managing the office. But what I am most well-known for amongst my colleagues is planning the most decadent Christmas parties. Each year I try to think of creative and fun ideas to congratulate the team on a job well done, and this past Christmas was one of my best. Dreamscape Tours helped me plan the most incredible river cruise Melbourne has to offer – people were begging to be our employee! Not only was the food and drink divine, and the event itself spectacular, but each employee also received free comedy tickets, facilitating another team bonding experience. To be honest – I’m glad Christmas parties are so far between as I don’t think I’ll be able to top last year if it’s still on people’s minds! With luck – Dreamscape will be able to help me again.

What foods to avoid when pregnant?

foods-to-avoid-when-pregnant

Food glorious food! For some, pregnancy is synonymous with severe cravings and an odd combination of food; I know I certainly had my fair share of late night chocolate sundaes and chips. However, what about the foods to avoid when pregnant? I had to remember that being pregnant puts me at high risk, so I saw it as worthwhile looking into and then avoiding, foods – or drinks – that could be detrimental to my health. Jumping online there was a wealth of information, but the most concise and engaging read was at Bump Moves. They seemed to understand my frame of mind, and provided the information I needed in a straightforward way. I’m now confident that the food I’m eating is right for me – and my baby.

Plus size wedding dresses you can feel beautiful in

plus-size-wedding-dresses

I guess a pretty common stereotype is that women will rush to lose weight before their wedding day. This was simply not the case for me. I’ve always felt very confident and comfortable in my own skin and I wanted a wedding dress to reflect and celebrate my natural curves, rather than try to hide them. I knew this would mean finding a bridal store that specialised in plus size wedding dresses, rather than trying to fit into something clearly designed for a size smaller. The Designer Bridal Room was a real breath of fresh air – they seemed genuinely interested in finding a dress that was right for me to make me feel beautiful, just the way I was, on my special day.  My final fitting with them is next week, then the countdown is on til the big day!
