Here is another little business that I didn’t even know existed until I started this blog! Chalk. Creative Designs is owned and operated by the gorgeous Amy Keech and provides all things graphic design.
Think: wedding stationary and styling, business stationary, logos, prints, birthday boards, signs, milestones cards and birth announcements.
Chalk. Creative Designs started when Amy was on maternity leave with her first son in 2015. Two more beautiful little cherubs have come along since that with the most recent being only 3.5 weeks old!
What sets Chalk. Creative Designs apart is that she goes above and beyond for her clients. She often gets little notice for designs needing to be done and always makes sure she comes up with the goods *sleep is for the weak*
Amy is a perfectionist and always wants to have happy clients and I think you can see those results each and every time you look at one of her designs.
Multimedia Marketing Solutions (MMS) is your go-to for all your business and marketing strategy needs. Kyle Simpson and his team operate throughout Bathurst and Sydney and can be the help your business needs to go to the next level.
They even design and create promotional videos and website designs.
Multimedia Marketing Solutions (MMS) has been in operation now for just over four years. In the past two years, it has grown exponentially dealing with some local customers but also significant corporations now. Kyle’s primary focus is on helping small and medium-sized businesses and has a very keen interest in helping local business owners implementing marketing strategies and increasing profit margins.
One of the best things about Multimedia Marketing Solutions is that they are honest and pride themselves on being building relationships of trust with their customers. Think of MMS as a veritable arm in business and with the majority of their customers coming to them as referrals from existing customers. Kyle says “I believe that we are unlike any other company within our industry. We pride ourselves on being personable, relatable and easy to work with.”
Their work speaks for itself, but in case you needed some further reassurance they’ve worked with some of the biggest names in the business (*cough* Microsoft *cough*). If they are trusted by world-class companies like that you can rest assured that you will be taken care of.
Even though MMS often work with large companies, they also love working with exciting entrepreneurial, start-up companies and small local Bathurst businesses.
Kyle has expressed with excitement that in 2019, Multimedia Marketing Solutions is introducing a special local package to Bathurst businesses that allows access to the MMS team for half the usual cost!
MMS has been creating memorable digital experiences since 2014, and you should call Kyle today on:
Tanya is a qualified Makeup Artist who completed her certificate at the Canberra Makeup Academy in 2002.
In 2015, after many years of working in and out of the Beauty Industry her passion for making people look and feel beautiful for weddings and special occasions led to the establishment of New Bloom Makeup Artistry.
The whole philosophy behind New Bloom Makeup Artistry is to enhance the natural beauty of her clients on their special day. Whether that look is natural or glamorous, New Bloom Makeup Artistry can create that for you, ensuring that you look and feel your most beautiful self!
What I absolutely love is that New Bloom Makeup Artistry will come to you, free of charge within the Bathurst area. If you’re outside that area she will still come to you but for a small fee.
I think the idea of getting ready for your special day, in the comfort of your own home is fantastic. So much more relaxing and hassle-free!
You know what the best part is? Tanya is practical and will even provide you with a small pot of your chosen lipstick for touch ups throughout the day. Talk about someone who actually cares!
New Bloom Makeup Artistry only uses the most superior quality make-up such as Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics and Modelrock Lashes to ensure that your skin is not only looking glamorous but is also well looked after.
You know how some people are just lucky enough to be massively talented as well as perfectly lovely? Well, that is the best way to describe Kel from Kellie Gibson Graphic Design.
Kellie Gibson Graphic Design has been operating for over 5 years and can help with all your graphic design needs. This includes stationary, logos, invitations as well as custom designed team wear. She will take you all the way from design to the finished product, including printing!
Kel just loves to design and will tackle anything you throw her way. She says she often finds herself working on party invites one second, then signage and sublimated clothing designs the next!
She particularily loves working with businesses to find their voice. She says “Your logo is your branding and identity. You want to be the first thought of a perspective client when they need one of your products or services.” With this attitude and the right amount of know-how she can take your business to the next level.
My husband and I used Kellie Gibson Graphic Design when we needed our business to have a refresh. It was funny, we didn’t even know what we wanted, but thankfully Kel was able to work with us to create something better than we ever could have thought. I found it incredible how she was able to transform our scattered sketches and verbal ideas into something perfect.
Want to be fitter and stronger. Maybe even lose a few kilos? I will tell you something, once you find a community of like minded people you have already completed half the battle. WOW Personal Training and Kobie Benn might just be there community you have been looking for.
Located in Bathurst WOW Personal Training offers Women’s Only Group Fitness sessions. These include bodyweight sessions as well as bootcamp sessions that incorporate both bodyweight and weighted movements.
I think the best part of WOW Personal Training is the reason it was started in the first place. Kobie says she has always battled weight issues her entire life and after suffering depression, anxiety and PTSD she found her passion for fitness and her entire life turned around.
She says the main driving purpose behind WOW Personal Training was to create a safe and supportive place for women to exercise while they learnt how to make positive, sustainable lifestyle changes to help them achieve their goals.
Kobie is a certified Personal Trainer and will help you get there, regardless of your goal. She isn’t like your typical trainer who stands at the front of the class and yells at you, instead she stands shoulder to shoulder and is in the trenches of the workout with you. The idea isn’t to be absolutely smashed during the workouts but to work to your best capacity, in your own way.
I love that Kobie welcomes mums and bubs to the bodyweight classes so now you have no excuses!
There are NO egos and NO competition in the sessions with WOW Personal Training. Everyone works together to support each other. Everyone starts together and finishes together. It doesn’t matter if you do 5reps or 50reps, nobody gets left behind!
Kobie says she knows what its like to be overweight, she knows what it feels like to be sitting on the sidelines of life because your body and mind are making it impossible to do anything, she knows what it feels like to always put herself last, and what it feels like to want to make a change but not knowing even where to start.
That’s the crux of it you know, the fact that Kobie has been there, she knows what you are feeling like but at the same time also knows what it’s like to celebrate the victories!! She wants you to look in the mirror and be proud of who you are.
So, now I have smashed your excuses get in contact with Kobie today!
The gorgeous Kobie at WOW Personal Training wants to help you find the best version of yourself so is giving away a WOW gift bag including towel, shaker and Group Fitness Pass valid for 20 visits! WOAH!!!!!

We LOVE Ivory Rose Botanicals! Not only do they do amazing floral art masterpieces but they are genuinely the nicest, friendliest store of people you will ever walk into.
Located in George Street, Bathurst you will not have to look far to see one of the most amazing window displays in all of the area, they take great care decorating and staging a window like no other. The shop is stunning even before you walk in the door.
Ivory Rose Botanicals has grown from a home studio to one of the most successful businesses in town in such a short time. It’s a family run and operated business open 6 days a week. What sets Maddie and her team apart is that fact that you aren’t just a customer when you walk in, you quickly become part of the family.
Maddie has some wonderful staff working alongside her including a number of ladies from Vivability who make Ivory Rose Botanicals just that little bit more lovely. She also supports a couple of talented up and coming florists to the business and aims to prove that those with ability (and as a self employed working mummy) can achieve the greatest of goals. (p.s watch this space for the upcoming Power of Ability launch!)
Ivory Rose Botanicals is different from the rest because they push the boundaries of floral art to ensure each one of their pieces are uniquely designed to entice the senses. They rely on the ‘fresh is best’ policy and only order enough stock to turn over every two days to ensure you only ever receive the highest quality produce.
What I love about Ivory Rose Botanicals are the fact that you can also get super hands on. Maddie and the team hold workshops where you can learn floral art and create your own magnificent masterpieces in a fun and supportive atmosphere. They even have Christmas workshops!
Maddie and the generous team at Ivory Rose Botanicals want to make your Christmas even more special so are offering one lucky winner a beautiful bouquet of flowers plus a mini hamper of the goodies they stock in store valued at $170!
