{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2018} Stone Pine makes Christmas super fine

The best thing about Christmas isn’t the gifts or carols. It’s not Santa or lights.

It’s the simple things.

It’s the sitting around a table with your family and friends celebrating the year that was. Celebrating the love that surrounds us all. What makes that even nicer is if you crack open a bottle of something from the Stone Pine Distillery. 

Owned and operated by Bev and Ian Glen (Ian is the Distiller) and located on Gormans Hill Road, Bathurst Stone Pine Distillery is a rare gem. 

Bev and Ian emigrated from Scotland 12 years ago with 2 small children and their dog! They spent two years building and setting up the Distillery and have been in operation for over 10 years now!

Stone Pine Distillery is a boutique Distillery that produces premium quality hand crafted spirits and liqueurs. Their products include several types of gin including Orange Blossom and Truffle to name just a couple. They also offer citrus infused vodka and the notorious Dead Man’s Drop which is a delicious dark spiced rum. 

On top of all that they also have various liqueurs including Limoncello (my fave!), honey liqueur and a brand new Cabernet Brandy Liqueur. This liqueur was pot distilled then aged for six years in a french oak barrique, prior to being married with grape juice. What this means is that it is a fruity, ruby-red liqueur that matches perfectly with your Christmas Puddin’!

Stone Pine Distillery have just released the Decade Gin. This gin celebrates their first 10 years and utilises ten botanicals to deliver a rounded, juniper-forward flavour with a subtle complexity. 

It’s really important to get behind this great local business because they were the first Distillery set up in the Central West and still the only ones operating in the Bathurst/Orange area. 

One of the best features is that Stone Pine Distillery always try and source their ingredients locally and love utilising Australian Native Botanicals.

They have just released their Decade Gin to celebrate their first 10 years. It utilises ten botanicals to deliver a rounded, Juniper-forward flavour with subtle complexity. 

If you want to get your gorgeous mits on some Stone Pine Distillery deliciousness then you can find their products in many local bottle shops across Bathurst (Cobb and Co Cellars, the Nickerbocker Bottleshop, Bernardi’s IGA) and in Orange (Ferment, The Agrestic Grocer and the Rugby Bottleshop)

You can even find them at the Orange Christmas Farmers Markets on Saturday 8 December 2018 or the Bathurst Farmer’s Markets on Saturday 15th of December 2018.

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2018} A memorable Christmas with Jen Stocks

Jennifer Stocks is one of the kindest, talented, friendliest person I know. She is an artist who takes an immense amount of pride in her work and someone who manages to capture your family’s love in a moment in time.

Jen is one of Australia’s most sought after and celebrated photographers and has won more awards than she can poke a stick at! 

She prides herself on fresh, contemporary images that are honest and often breathtaking. 

She captures moments in time so you can keep them for always.

Jen is a professional newborn, baby, child & family photographer servicing the Central West and surrounding areas.

Our family has had the pleasure of working with Jen on numerous occasions and she captures those pivotal moments between moments – you know the ones that I will want to relive as we all grow.

Jen offers a wide range of photography sessions to suit your needs. My favourite are the Sunset Sessions. These are casual afternoons spent capturing your family. They don’t take nearly as long as a full session but help update photos of growing children and families.  Plus it’s WAY easier keeping a toddler in check for a shorter period of time!

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2018} Grab some Kisses From Kate

If you have been following the blog for a while you will know that I am an absolute sucker for lipstick. I honestly believe that whacking some red on, makes every day better. You feel more confident and more powerful just with that little move. 

Little did I know there was SO much more choice than just a simple red lippy from woolies. 

My eyes were open by the lovely Kate Davis who is a local, independent LipSence, SeneGene Skincare and Makeup distributor.

Not only has she become my go-to for lipstick but now ALL my makeup needs/wants/demands/desires/looks. 

Kate tells me one of the things that drew her to the products were the fact that they are lead free, wax free, gluten free, contain no animal by-products and aren’t tested on animals. How amazing is that? 

You know what else gives Kate credit in my book? The only reason she started selling the products in the first place is because she fell so in love with them when she was using them just for personal use. I love when people just find a passion for something because it actually works for them. 

Kate says she is learning more and more about proper skin care and budge proof makeup every single day, and all she wants to do is help other women feel as good about themselves as possible. 

Plus, Kate is just an ordinary everyday woman who doesn’t have hours to get ready in the morning, so she just needs reliable products that make her feel a million bucks (but without a hefty price tag)

She had me hooked the moment she told me their lipsticks would last basically all day. So of course I was like “game on mole” and tested it. To my surprise it did actually last. I’m talking through 3 coffees, lunch, slobbery baby kisses and much more. 

Check out KissesFromKate today because you won’t regret it (plus it makes Christmas shopping SUPER easy!)

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2018} Angela Morris is Eye Opening

There is nothing more important than good health and Angela Morris Optometrist helps protect one of the most important areas of health, your eyes. 

Owned and operated by Optometrists Angela and Laurence and with the help of Robyn their practice manager/ optical dispenser and Tracy their eye wear consultant they offer all you need for eye health happiness. 

Angela Morris Optometrist are not the new kids on the block, in fact they will be celebrating their 20th birthday next year! They offer quality service and premium products in a relaxed and friendly way. In fact my kids actually look forward to their annual eye checkups with the team!

Angela Morris Optometrist  offer bulk-billed Medicare eye examinations. Even if you do not need glasses, you should have a regular check up to ensure the good health of your eyes for such problems as macula degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts.

Recently they even acquired an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomographer) which creates 3D images of the eyes to help in the early detection of macula degeneration and glaucoma. This brilliant piece of machinery means these conditions are picked up a lot earlier. 

My little ones have been going to see the team at Angela Morris Optometrist since they were little and in fact all children should be having regular eye checks from about the time they are six (6) months old. These checks are important to make sure any problems are noticed prior to starting school so their learning is off to the best possible start!

Angela Morris Optometrist provide all types of contact lenses including daily disposables and more specialised contact lens fittings. Unlike glasses, contact lenses will not fog up or fall off when exercising. Contacts also give you an unrestricted view so that your vision is as natural as possible.

Angela Morris Optometrist also pride themselves on being heavily involved in the community and are always looking for ways to give back. They have a great ongoing reputation for quality customer service and regularly give back to the community by offering free child vision assessments in preschools and schools, as well as sponsoring community initiatives such as local theatre performances, sporting groups, schools and charities.

As an independent optometry practice they are not restricted to stocking certain brands, which means they can offer their customers an extensive range of frame options.  Angela still enjoys taking a hands-on role when selecting frames and their stock is constantly changing as suppliers visit on an almost weekly basis. So if you have a particular style in mind it can be sourced for you quickly and easily.

What I love is that Angela Morris Optometrist carry styles to suit everyone. From edgy plastic frames in bold, vibrant colours to sporty lightweight titanium or classic, rimless designs, you can be sure they will take the time to help you find the perfect look.

Plus, as a sunglasses addict I love their huge range of sunglasses. They have some of the coolest Maui Jim sunglasses. Maui Jim have the clearest polarised lenses that protect your eyes from glare and harmful UV, whilst giving you unbelievable clarity and colour. They are pretty much all round winners that’s for sure! (hint: Christmas present = sorted)

Make sure you contact the team today (you certainly don’t want to miss out on your health fund benefits before the end of December!):
