{This is Life} It is time to act on our watch

DomesticViolence_4

What this is, is possibly the most powerful video you will watch.

‘It is time to act on our watch’ is confronting, provoking and brave.

Domestic violence in NSW is at a 15 year high according to the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.

You know what’s worse, those people who we share regional NSW with, are more likely to be affected.  That means YOUR friend, YOUR sister, YOUR workmate.

It is an epidemic that needs to be addressed, especially by the young future leaders.

Watch this. Pass on the message. Be strong and stand up together.

Fight domestic violence. Protect our daughters. Protect our sons. Make a change.

Please protect each other Nesters, enough really is enough.

{Locally Found} Little Italy is cooking up a storm in Bathurst

We have stumbled across the finest taste of Italy this side of the mountains. Little Italy in Bathurst was created by Pina Verzino last March for fun. She offers cooking lessons that are given in a very friendly and fun way.

Pina, a wife and mother to two growing boys moved to Australia with her family and saw the opportunity to start her very own business offering her Italian to the people.

What’s not to love about traditional Italian food in little ol’ Bathurst New South Wales?

{Keep Calm and Blog On} The Girl Has Sparke visited our Millthorpe

The Girl Has Sparke is our latest blog crush.

Written superbly from a lovely twenty-something Canberrarian named Megan it is classy and hilarious and simply good reading.

Our favourite article so far is this one -> Foodies Guide to Weekend in Millthorpe. Admittedly, we might be a little bit biased due to her obvious love of Millthorpe which is situated in our own backyard, but she is brilliant in her review of a perfect little weekend location.

{Do this} I want to wear it again (and raise some coin for RSPCA!)

Talk about one of the most fun ways to raise some much needed moolah.

The I want to wear it again ball is on 24 May 2014 in Bathurst and raises some much needed money for the RSPCA.wearitagain

What makes this ball so much fun (except you know, a night dressed up away from the kids with your mates) is that you get to wear your wedding dress again! If you haven’t been married you are able to wear whatever dress makes you feel special (or suit if you are a fella!)

You can get tickets for $88.00 and there are discounts for early birds and group tables!
