| CHRISTMAS PRIZEAPOLOOZA 2019 | Do Christmas with Jess and her dots

This is a fantastic local business that you really need to know about! Jess Does Dots is owned and operated by the incredibly talented Jess Sandford (Channon) and is located in Orange.

Jess Does Dots creates original art (framed and on canvas), hand painted earrings, hand painted Christmas decorations and canvas print bags.

The thing that sets Jess apart is that her masterpieces are handcreated with love and talent and some of her paintings can take weeks to finish! The time she spends on these creations are not reflected in her price but you can tell when you recieve one of her items just how much time and love has gone into it.

This business began after one of Jess’ friends make the suggestion for Jess to have an outlet. Jess suffered severe postnatal depression and anxiety and her friend (who was a nurse) suggested it could help her cope. Jess had obtained a top mark in the NSW HSC Art body of work and finally had a reason to switch off from everyday life and focus on her creative side.

You feel the heart in everyone of Jess’ creations.

There is nothing better than finding someone who can make you feel your absolute best and that is exactly what New Bloom Makeup Artistry offers.

Run by Tanya Benett and based at Ruby 6 Hair and Beauty. New Bloom Makeup Artistry is a mobile service that offers the very best bridal and special occasion makeup. 

Tanya is a qualified Makeup Artist completing her certificate at the Canberra Makeup Academy in 2002. After many years of working in and out of the Beauty Industry, in 2015 her passion for making people look and feel beautiful for weddings and special occasions led to the establishment of New Bloom Makeup Artistry, a mobile makeup service designed to enhance your natural beauty for your special day. Whether your desired 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. This makes getting ready for your wedding or special event much more relaxing and hassle-free!

New Bloom Makeup Artistry will take the time to find out your personal makeup preferences and individual style, to create a makeup look that you not only feel comfortable in, but enhances your natural features to create the most beautiful version of yourself.

You can either bring along your own lipstick or the thing I adore about New Bloom Makeup Artistry is that if you use one of her colours, Tanya will provide you with a small pot of your chosen lipstick and a brush to use for touch ups throughout the day.

New Bloom Makeup Artistry only use the most superior quality make-up and skin care, such as Clinique, Nars, Hourglass, Tarte, Smashbox, Becca, Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics and Modelrock, giving you a flawless and long-lasting finish.

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2017} Blooming lovely with Ivory Rose Botanicals

One of our most favourite locals is first to kick off the Christmas Prizeapolooza 2017!

Maddie from Ivory Rose Botanicals is one of the most talented, creative and downright loveliest people we have ever met. maddie

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, Maddie takes great care decorating and staging a window like no other. Her 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. fr

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.flo

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!ivoryGet in contact with Maddie today:
