Today we are saluting the brilliantly talented, creative genius that is Maddie Veitch from Ivory Rose Botanicals. 

Maddie is a local mama who is working hard for herself and her family. Not long ago she opened Ivory Rose Botanicals in George Street Bathurst and since that time has shown herself to be the front-runner in floral design.

Maddie will help with everything from a simple bouquet for your bestie, all the way up to your wedding arch super pieces. She doesn’t just sell flowers, she literally creates art.

Ivory Rose Botanicals also holds really fun classes in floral arrangements, everything from headpieces to flower centrepieces.

Plus, the totes best thing is rolling into her little studio and getting to hang out with Maddie and her beautiful little boys.

The Central Nest loves supporting local women working hard to make a difference and Maddie is certainly doing that. So, thank you Maddie for giving my little girls someone to look up to so they realise you really can strive to have it all.

Today is filled with double the love as we salute the beautiful due Smith & Jones.

Smith & Jones are a whimsical duo who play music that doesn’t quite fit the mould but perfectly creates a blend of country, folk and jazz.

Sophie Jones and Abby Smith knew their friendship was gold once they met at record shop and bonded over a love of classic country and blues. Blending a fantastic attitude and undeniable talent the duo created Smith & Jones and have been since performing at numerous venues all over the state.

Their unstoppable talent has led them to being nominated as Young Australian’s of the Year in 2015 and more recently had the duo at number One on Country Music Radio!

When you watch Smith & Jones perform you are transferred to a magical place of harmony and soul. Their music is powerful and beautiful and really shows how brilliant Australian musical talent can be.

Thank you Smith & Jones for showing our little girls that dreams really can come true and we really can be rock stars.

{Girl Crush Tuesday} The fabulous Mia Freedman

Today we salute Mia Freedman. Mia is a fabulously strong woman who uses her voice through many avenues. She is an editor, writer, author and blogger. She was even the youngest ever editor of Australian Cosmopolitan at the age of 24!

What we love about Mia is that she isn’t afraid to go against the norm and give her opinion regardless of the consequences. She stands by her strong opinions and isn’t naïve enough to believe that everyone will agree with her but instead supports the right of free speech.

If you are a parent with internet access you will have no doubt come across Mia’s websites, Ivillage and Mamamia. These sites are read by thousands and thousands of people every single day. She gives a voice and advice to many who don’t know where to go.

Mia isn’t afraid of standing out from the crowd and uses this power to push many causes close to her heart. These include encouraging women to embrace their bodies and giving support to those who have experienced stillborn births and miscarriages.

Mia has been very open about her own experiences with mental illness and in particular living everyday with anxiety. Brave women like Mia who use their positions to talk more openly about these issues increase awareness and acceptance for even more members of the community.

Mia might not be everyone’s cup of tea but to others she is certainly their glass of champagne.

Thanks Mia for showing our little girls not to be afraid of using their voices loudly and proudly and for teaching them that through hard work and a little perseverance anything is possible.

 

 

{Girl Crush Tuesday} Local superhero Robyn

We have some pretty hard girl crushes. These are the types of ladies that stamp their style on the world. They are the type of people that will always be remembered and little girls grow up wanting to be. They are women of substance. Women that make the world a better place. Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.line4Today’s girl crush is a local lady named Robyn Rayner who has made a really big difference to her local community of Hill End. So much so that Robyn was actually nominated by another nester because she is that wonderful!

I am told that Robyn is a modern day superhero who saved Hill End from a nuclear dump legacy that would have been passed onto all of our children. She took on the Federal Government and won! Robyn was a fierce and knowledgeable spokesperson who was able to save our local area from eternal nuclear poison.

Not only is Robyn a superhero in the political arena but also manages to run a multi-award winning merino stud with her husband Geoff. On top of that, this beautiful woman also has taken part in making sure farmers out Dunedoo way have enough hay to feed their livestock after the recent fires and has even driven out there to drop it off.

How brilliant is it to see a local woman doing fantastic things for her area and those around her.

So, we salute you Robyn for being a modern day superhero.

They are the type of people that will always be remembered and little girls grow up wanting to be. They are women of substance. Women that make the world a better place. Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.line4Today we salute local performer extraordinaire Lauren Plenderleith.

Lauren is a local girl who I have had the privilege of knowing for an extraordinarily long time, she is super involved in the community and has a heart of gold.

Lauren is a singer extraordinaire and I guarantee that you would have seen her gracing stages at many functions you have attended in our local area over the years.

She has been a band member of Nuthin’ 2 Serious for over 13 years and as if that’s not enough she is also a founding member of of Momentum, a new musical group that are rockin’ out sounds everywhere. In fact, Momentum are opening for and supporting Diesel later this year! What a great achievement.

Lauren is such a superstar that she was given the well deserved honour of being MC for the Bathurst Carols by Candlelight last Christmas and to say she smashed it is a massive understatement! She also performed at Rock of Ages.

On top of all this Lauren is a mother and a wife who has a day job as well!

There is absolutely nothing better than seeing a local girl done good.

Here’s to you Lauren, we can’t wait to see you rock the stage for years to come. Thanks for showing our little girls that confidence and hardwork pays off.
