A bond loan helped me get out on my own


I must admit – being 25 and living at home wasn’t exactly how I’d planned my life to turn out. It was in the two weeks before my 26th birthday that I realised something had to change. It’s not that I didn’t want to move out I guess, I could just never save up the money I needed to cover bond and the other expenses associated with moving. My girlfriend said she’d heard about something called a bond loan, which would give me the money I needed to help me get on with my life. With this in mind, I started looking for places within my budget, and when I had found suitable places, it was a quick process to be approved with Rent Bond Move. I was finally accepted as a tenant last week, and feel ready for what living out of home will bring.

Great Melbourne house and land packages for first time buyers



I guess I would call myself pretty lucky, having found my dream job when I was just 19. Even luckier that I still lived at home so everything I was earning, I was saving. My girlfriend was doing the same, and before we knew it, it was reasonable for us to look into buying our first home at age 22. Being our first time buying, we figured it was in our best interest to look at Melbourne house and land packages, which would allow us into our new home faster at competitive pricing. We ended up buying with Five Squared who had developments in a location we were thrilled with. We’re now in the process of moving out and I don’t think my girlfriend and I – or my parents – could be happier.

Capture your memories using wedding videography


There were so many decisions that went into planning a wedding, I couldn’t believe it. The dress, the cake, the venue, the catering – the list goes on. Then, after months of meticulous planning the big day finally arrived, and begs the question, who did we trust to capture this milestone? For me, wedding videography was just as important as the photography. I wanted someone to capture the laughter, love and joy on film so that I could relive the happiness I would inevitably feel on the day. I found C2 Video who specialise in boutique wedding videography, which made it an easy and obvious choice. I can now look back and re-imagine what was the happiest day of my life so far.

Melbourne river cruises are the perfect way to party in style


Your 21st birthday is something you never forget. More importantly – it’s something your friends and family won’t ever forget – so it’s essential to impress. I knew I had to do something different to all of my other friends, something that would stand out in the forefront of their minds as the epitome of luxury. So, why not look at some Melbourne river cruises? Boats are synonymous with luxury, excitement and style and I knew I had a winning idea. Dreamscape Tours were awesome in catering to my every wish and provided delicious food and an amazing dance floor. Needless to say, my party will go down in my friends and families history books as one of the best, and Dreamscape Tours are to thank.

Gold Coast removalists like no other


If there is a task more tedious than moving house, I’m yet to find it. I’ve had to move a couple of times in the last few years due to my job, and I’m getting to the point where I went to sell everything I own just so I don’t have to move it again and again. Thankfully, a mate put me in touch with Woodhouse Removals and they were able to remove the headache that’s usually involved with this kind of thing. I’ve spoken with Gold Coast removalists before, but these guys came out winners by a mile. They were on time, courteous, and didn’t throw my belongings around in the truck like I’ve seen in the past. If you’re moving anywhere on the Gold Coast, give Woodhouse Removals a call.

A great facial Melbourne wide for men


Throughout high school, I had some pretty bad skin problems, but figured it was just part of growing up and my skin would heal once I made it through puberty. Unfortunately, it didn’t, and I realised it was up to me to treat and look after my own skin. Of course I immediately found and started a skin care regime, but also saw the merit in having regular facials, because lets be honest, I have no idea what’s good for me. I wanted something specifically tailored to men’s skin and found Masque to be so helpful. For men, I could definitely recommend their facial Melbourne wide, as it provided the skincare I needed as well as a tension relieving massage to boot. My skin is worlds apart from how it used to look and the team at Masque is definitely to thank.

Great Cure for Intestinal Worms

Intestinal worms can be hard to notice and even harder to kick. Doctors will be quick to prescribe you medication, which will get the job done but often at the expense of general bodily balance. You don’t have to fill your body with harmful chemicals because there are a number of effective natural remedies that will get the job done just as well.


I rely pretty heavily on PPC Herbs for great natural remedies online. You can jump on the site and browse for specific medication or by condition like intestinal worms, and usually find a range of products to suit. You’re guaranteed all natural products sourced form all over the place and they can get them to you in under a week.

Reliable Hydronic Heating Boilers

Great heating is a godsend in winter and summer is the best time to get that sorted. Hydronic heating is the best and while there’s a decent capital expense, it pays dividends in the long run. I recommend anyone remodelling to consider changing over to hydronics just because it is such a nice way to heat a home and environmentally sound.


Hunt Heating have an excellent range of hydronic heating boilers, which are the basis of any good hydronic system. You will need a number of heaters or elements which you can put in the wall, floors or even things like towel racks. Good suppliers like Hunt Heating can supply and install a full package in less than a week.

Womens Shoes from Novo

I buy Novo Shoes because they can’t be beaten on value. They have good quality shoes and while they aren’t necessarily hand made by Italian designers the range is really stylish and they have a little something for everyone and every occasion. I love having a big range of well made, comfortable shoes and I really think there is no one better than Novo Shoes for that.


Womens shoes are such an important part of womens fashion and all of my girlfriends spend a fortune on them. It blows my mind that so few of them have cottoned on to Novo Shoes and that none of them can tell I bought my shoes online for half the price of what they usually pay.

Plantation Shutters Take the Cake

We just had plantation shutters put in the café after a lot of research and discussion. We spoke to several companies and looked at a range of options and in the end just went with our gut. Plantation shutters have always appealed to me because of the warmth and convenience. I like the thin sheets of light they let in and find them very atmospheric, it’s just perfect for the late afternoon sun that comes in through the front windows.


We had all the work done by Blockout Blinds that are based here in Melbourne. The service was very friendly and the workmanship was excellent. We chose them for the range of blinds so all the other stuff was a great little bonus.
