{WIN} Want to get your hands on some Kleynimals thanks to Explore.Play.Learn?

A little while ago we stumbled across a great invention for little birdies. We discovered the brilliant Kleynimals.  (You can find our previous articles here -> ‘Little Birdies you can slobber on my Kleynimals’ and ‘Teething little birdie relief’)

These bad boys are for chomping and slobbering. Best of all they give just a little bit of relief to poor teething baby birdies.

Some people are just ridiculously talented. Like if you are lucky enough to be in their presence when they are creating their ‘art’ you are simply blown away. I feel that way about the wonderfully skillful Jennifer Stocks.jen stocks logoFirstly, for the purposes of being upfront I should disclose that she is a part of my family. I have known her my whole life and am proud to call her friend.

jen stocvks

Jen is one of Australia’s most sought after and celebrated photographers and is a fully accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). As evidence of her wonderful skills and talent she has won numerous awards for her work both at a state level and nationally.

The best way to describe her photography style is fresh, contemporary, pure and simple. She captures moments in time so you can keep them for always.

She is a professional newborn, baby, child & family photographer servicing the Central West. I can honestly say she regularly amazes me with her sublime work and the sensational care she gives her clients.

Jen is taking some well-deserved time away from her business for 12 months to spend some more quality time with her little birdies (she has four!!) but I assure you will be back, bigger and better then ever in the not too distant future.

{Prizeapolooza} Let Integrity Health & Wellbeing guide you towards your new years resolutions

christmas photoshop small copy

New years resolutions – everyone has one.

According to the University of Scranton, and published in their Journal of clinical Psychology the top new years resolution for 2012 was the promise to lose weight.

If you are going to be one of those people making the same resolution for 2014 then perhaps Angela Johnson from Integrity Health and Wellbeing should be your first port of call…

ange

Integrity Health and Wellbeing is based in our little local nest of Bathurst but has the support of a greater team of health and wellness experts from across New South Wales.

Angela tells us that Integrity Health and Wellbeing provides a wellness program that’s designed to ‘spring clean’ your insides, as well as giving some notable results on the outside. Angela and her team coach participants through nutritional cleansing programs while also mentoring through the daily lifestyle changes required to maintain the optimal health and wellness benefits achieved using the cleansing programs.angela and toby

Integrity Health and Well being was founded in July 2013 when Angela was searching for a program that would help her personally deal with an overall feeling of ‘dullness’. Added to this was the desire to assist a beloved family member with a weight loss goal, Angela embarked on a journey to find something that quite simply, ‘worked’. She says she found that answer in Isagenix.

After successfully completing the program she decided she wanted to help others obtain their wellbeing goals and as such Integrity Health and Wellbeing was created! Cruise forward six months and Angela has now left her fulltime employment in order to pursue a career in helping educate individuals, businesses and communities on health and wellness – and the day to day benefits that wellness can bring to people’s lives.

Like anything, Angela admits that participating in the program takes commitment, dedication and strength to break through the cycle of ‘bad habits’ but says Integrity Health and Wellbeing’s ‘Isagenix’ programs ‘retrain’ your body’s digestive and metabolic systems, kick starting your engine, while making simple adjustments to your daily activities ensuring you maintain results. It simply ‘fits in’ to whatever type of lifestyle you have – whether you spend a lot of time travelling, in the office or are based primarily in the home.

Angela says it isn’t about losing weight; it’s about feeling the best you can – inside and out. One of the side effects just happens to be looking fabulous!

Integrity Health and Wellbeing can also assist those wanting to earn an extra income by becoming a member of its ‘Isagenix’ branch – the backbone underpinning the nutritional cleansing programs. As well as putting some extra money in pockets, Integrity Health and Wellbeing provides professional development to help successfully run your own business through Isagenix, as well as becoming part of a wonderful supportive team.

{Prizeapolooza} Lambert & Lord might just have you floored

christmas photoshop small copy

Pretty. Perfect. Gorgeous. Amazing. Trustworthy. Designer. Bliss. Sublime. Delicious. There are just not enough words to describe how wonderful the world of Lambert & Lord is (and I know A LOT of words!!)

logo-690x100

Lambert & Lord is an online store owned and operated by the gorgeous Karen Pearce (based in our little neck of the woods, specifically Bathurst).

Due to the fact that they are an online store (www.lambertandlord.com.au) it gives YOU, the shopper, the benefit of all the convenience of shopping online while still being able to support local business! (And it is very important to support local businesses – how boring would shopping in the central west be without them?!)

451058 JATW garland

Lambert & Lord offer a beautiful range of paper goods and partyware, for entertaining and every day.

Lambert & Lord has been operating at www.lambertandlord.com.au since the beginning of October 2013 but you might remember them from their small shop in Keppel Street, Bathurst called The Party Table.

451053 JATW cupcake kit 2

The thing that separates Lambert & Lord is the fact that they stock a beautiful range of premium products that are often unavailable outside of metropolitan areas.

Being a local business, they offer the convenience of shopping online with competitive prices and an extensive range. Bathurst customers can add to this free delivery on orders over $30.00 or free pick-up at Gorgeousness in William Street.

Their main product range is all about simple, stylish colour and fun. They stock polkadot, candy stripe and solid colour paper tableware, coordinating balloons and bunting, gorgeous honeycomb balls and paper fans, and versatile treat boxes and tags. They also stock a range of eco-friendly wooden cutlery. How brilliant to be able to access such diversity locally!

What I think gives Lambert & Lord the edge is the fact that they complement the range with special pieces from well-known Australian and overseas brands. At the moment, Meri Meri is their personal favourite, with their gorgeous Jingle All The Way range for Christmas, their gold and silver Confetti range for New Year, and their Toot Sweet partyware range.

{Prizeapolooza} Sassy Little sistas should be on Santa’s list..

christmas photoshop small copy

While we usually focus on local businesses during the Christmas Prizeapolooza Sassy Little Sistas is the worthy exception!PicsArt

Owned and operated by the very talented Tanya from Leeville in Northern NSW (see: more country than city) Sassy Sistas is a wonderful place filled with great design, clever workmanship and fabulous style (plus her sister lives in Bathurst so we will accept her as a local anyway!)

While I am lucky to make a peanut butter sandwich, Tanya is delicately creating all types of gifts and clothing for the little birdies in your life. photo-3

Tanya has taken her lifelong love of sewing for family and friends and turned it into her very own business. While she studied textiles and design in school she is a self-taught handmaiden! photo

Sassy Little Sistas came about after Tanya found that she was unable to locate good quality, unique items for her own children and as a result identified a market for her own high quality, handmade items.

Tanya prides herself on quality workmanship, rather than quantity. Only using the highest quality materials and her very broad skillset she creates fabulous designs that you are unable to find anywhere else.

You can contact Sassy Little Sistas either by email or Facebook:

Email:sassylittlesistas@gmail.com

The gorgeous Tanya has jumped on board the Prizeapolooza train and is offering a $40.00 voucher to one very lucky winner. You can choose from rompers, or skirts, ipad covers to dresses or whatever you like! To be a winner all you have to do is ‘like’ Sassy Little Sistas’ Facebook page as well as The Central Nest on Facebook! – Easy!
