| Shout out | I see you.

Today’s advice: I can see those of you who unliked The Central Nest the day after the Christmas giveaway was drawn. So probably don’t bother to join again just in time for next year’s comp.. #justsayin

EDIT: The Christmas Prizeapolooza is a giveaway designed to say thanks to all those who support the blog all year round. Having said that and just to clarify, it doesn’t matter if you only found us and ‘liked’ us the day before the comp that’s fine! This is a shout out to those who choose to only like us for competition times.

The only reason the Prizeapolooza is growing so much every year is because all the local businesses can see what a great little community the Nester family is. We love local, we support each other and provide a great community to have contact with others around us.

So, if you have friends that you think will benefit from the nester community invite them to join the family. 2018 is going to be a great year for us and the bigger we can grow the community the greater the 2018 Christmas Prizeapolooza will be.

Thanks to all of you who support and share the love of The Central Nest,

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2017} The Joy of JasitUp

Some people  in life are just naturally talented, they create pieces of art that are worn with love for years. That is exactly what Jasmine from JasitUp HandStamped Jewellery does.

JasitUp offers beautiful, one of a kind pieces that not only look beautiful but are swamped with sentimental value. 23561653_751728691680745_6923705324771600521_n

Honestly, I have to say that my favourite feature of JasitUp is the fact that there are endless ways to personalise your own keepsake. You could use the kid’s birthdates or your anniversary. It could be a date of graduation or favourite lyrics from a song. Whatever details matter to you, matter to JasitUp.

Offering handcrafted stamping on your new piece of jewellery means that your jewellery is just that little bit more special.

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2016} Give a little bit of Glitz this year

This product is the EXACT reason I started this blog, it’s local, it’s brilliant and I didn’t know it existed until now.

Little Glitz by Amanda is located in Blayney and she offers custom cross stitch portraits, wall hangings and letters. 15354316_1799094906975396_1227810246_o

Amanda has been cross-stitching since she was young and it was a skill taught to her by her mother. How fantastic is that?

This is honestly the best product I have seen in a long time, what a brilliant way to capture your family and what a fabulous gift this would make. You could buy it as a wedding gift  and then buy another one with the couple and added children later! I love this idea! Imagine a whole couple’s history celebrated by cross stitch.

Little Glitz by Amanda offers simply stunning items and I hope in the not to distant future to have one of her beautiful creations hanging in my home.

If there is one business that you need to get out and support after this year’s Christmas prizeapolooza let it be this one.

{Christmas Prizeapolooza Update} The gorgeous Jaime and her Integrity Health

Just before Christmas we had our first ever Christmas Prizeapolooza. This was a fabulous success and we will never be able to thank the many local businesses that jumped on board and helped us celebrate the festive season by giving away loads of brilliant and generous gifts to some very lucky Nesters.

One such winner was the gorgeous Jaime Davis Morgan.

Jaime won the Integrity Health and Wellbeing prize pak valued at over $300.00 and she says it simply changed her life.

Here is what Jaime says about the win:

“Hello, being on the Isagenix has changed my life! I’ve lost weight and cm and feel so much better than I did before! More focused, more energy, my taste buds have completely changed too – I used to be a chocoholic lol but now can stay away from it! No longer do I get those 3pm sugar cravings either. All round it’s been a great experience and Angela and her team has been a wonderful support. I’m currently doing the maintenance program, in my second month and can’t see myself ceasing it anytime soon. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win such a great prize!!”

We love hearing from very happy Nesters and are so glad that Jaime won this prize.

{Prizeapolooza} Jen Stocks Photography

Some people are just ridiculously talented. Like if you are lucky enough to be in their presence when they are creating their ‘art’ you are simply blown away. I feel that way about the wonderfully skillful Jennifer Stocks.jen stocks logoFirstly, for the purposes of being upfront I should disclose that she is a part of my family. I have known her my whole life and am proud to call her friend.

jen stocvks

Jen is one of Australia’s most sought after and celebrated photographers and is a fully accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). As evidence of her wonderful skills and talent she has won numerous awards for her work both at a state level and nationally.

leigh

The best way to describe her photography style is fresh, contemporary, pure and simple. She captures moments in time so you can keep them for always.

penny

She is a professional newborn, baby, child & family photographer servicing the Central West. I can honestly say she regularly amazes me with her sublime work and the sensational care she gives her clients.

yawn

Jen is taking some well-deserved time away from her business for 12 months to spend some more quality time with her little birdies (she has four!!) but I assure you will be back, bigger and better then ever in the not too distant future.

line4To celebrate all that is wonderful about the Christmas season and to thank her wonderful clients for their support, Jen is offering a very special prize to one lucky Nester. If you have had your life captured through Jen’s lens in the last three (3) years she is offering the chance to win one of your images printed onto a 20inch x 30inch canvas. This is huge and would be an amazing way to display your family’s image for a lifetime.

{Prizeapolooza} Let Integrity Health & Wellbeing guide you towards your new years resolutions

christmas photoshop small copy

New years resolutions – everyone has one.

According to the University of Scranton, and published in their Journal of clinical Psychology the top new years resolution for 2012 was the promise to lose weight.

If you are going to be one of those people making the same resolution for 2014 then perhaps Angela Johnson from Integrity Health and Wellbeing should be your first port of call…

ange

Integrity Health and Wellbeing is based in our little local nest of Bathurst but has the support of a greater team of health and wellness experts from across New South Wales.

Angela tells us that Integrity Health and Wellbeing provides a wellness program that’s designed to ‘spring clean’ your insides, as well as giving some notable results on the outside. Angela and her team coach participants through nutritional cleansing programs while also mentoring through the daily lifestyle changes required to maintain the optimal health and wellness benefits achieved using the cleansing programs.angela and toby

Integrity Health and Well being was founded in July 2013 when Angela was searching for a program that would help her personally deal with an overall feeling of ‘dullness’. Added to this was the desire to assist a beloved family member with a weight loss goal, Angela embarked on a journey to find something that quite simply, ‘worked’. She says she found that answer in Isagenix.

After successfully completing the program she decided she wanted to help others obtain their wellbeing goals and as such Integrity Health and Wellbeing was created! Cruise forward six months and Angela has now left her fulltime employment in order to pursue a career in helping educate individuals, businesses and communities on health and wellness – and the day to day benefits that wellness can bring to people’s lives.

Like anything, Angela admits that participating in the program takes commitment, dedication and strength to break through the cycle of ‘bad habits’ but says Integrity Health and Wellbeing’s ‘Isagenix’ programs ‘retrain’ your body’s digestive and metabolic systems, kick starting your engine, while making simple adjustments to your daily activities ensuring you maintain results. It simply ‘fits in’ to whatever type of lifestyle you have – whether you spend a lot of time travelling, in the office or are based primarily in the home.

Angela says it isn’t about losing weight; it’s about feeling the best you can – inside and out. One of the side effects just happens to be looking fabulous!

Integrity Health and Wellbeing can also assist those wanting to earn an extra income by becoming a member of its ‘Isagenix’ branch – the backbone underpinning the nutritional cleansing programs. As well as putting some extra money in pockets, Integrity Health and Wellbeing provides professional development to help successfully run your own business through Isagenix, as well as becoming part of a wonderful supportive team.
