For the general public, thinking of a ‘fashion stylist’ creates a feeling of Hollywood, and creates the image of a glamorous celebrity wearing a designer outfit, posing for a photo shoot.

The Importance of Fashion Stylists Brisbane

What about you? You might be thinking, “What would I do with a fashion stylist?”

Brisbane Fashion Stylists are exciting and positive people, trained to enhance the positive qualities of their clients. With a natural flair for choosing just the right type of colours, fabrics, clothing and accessories that suit their client and any particular occasion, stylists can offer advice regarding hair and make-up, as well as body awareness and even the way you speak.

However, stylists are skilled beyond just making people look good. They are skilled in improving self-image, and one of the greatest things about a relationship with a stylist is the boost to confidence that many people report afterwards.

People in Brisbane can now hire fashion stylists to help prepare questions for numerous events, such as for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, parties, corporate events, etc.

Although we are aware that every celebrity has their own fashion stylist, if you live in south-east Queensland you can now make yourself feel and look wonderful by sharing your desires with a personal stylist. Brisbane fashion stylists are making themselves increasingly popular for everyday people, as well as offering their skills in various areas such as image and branding for corporate customers, for TV commercials, fashion shows..you name it! While focussing mainly on the personal touches that improve a person’s look, a stylist is also able to take in the bigger picture, for example discussing themes with publishers, managers, PR people, etc and seeing which styles their client needs for an event or photo shoot etc, that not only shows their client to their best advantage, but projects and maintains a great image.

Stylists work is more than making people look good. It is about beautifying a person overall. Looking for a fashion stylist Brisbane, contact La La Styling, Brisbane’s best fashion stylist.

 

Living in a house that is pest-free is definitely essential for being comfortable and healthy. Those that have faced a pest infestation before are quite familiar with the obstacles involved in finding a solution. The main problem with getting rid of a pest infestation is that they are often times resistant to supermarket products no matter how expensive they may be. Most people find themselves spending a lot of money on various products and do not see any results. Although many people do not realise it, hiring a professional to got rid of he pests can save you money, time, and most importantly stress! Pest control Brisbane services are highly reputable and are certified to relieve you of any type of pest infestation in your home.

Selecting a Pest Control Service Provider

Pest control Brisbane only hires professionals that have passed a background check and are qualified to complete the necessary work. Selecting a pest control company that runs background checks on their employees is important. This way you have a peace of mind knowing that you can rely on the workers while they are in your home. Another important thing to consider when choosing a pest control company is whether they are certified and licensed. Reputable companies are always willing to show proof of certificates and business licenses if necessary. Hesitation to do so is a red flag that they may not be certified or licensed, and therefore are not worthy of your trust, time, or money. Lastly, it is good to ask questions regarding the treatment options available and any questions you may have about the whole process. Asking questions will allow you to see if the company’s customer service is good as well as how knowledgeable they are.

Common Types of Pests

Pest control Brisbane services offer treatment options for a wide range of pest infestations. The most common types of pests include; mice, cockroaches, rats, bed bugs, ants, and termites. These pests have been around for long, and as a result have become resistant to the majority of pest control products that can be found in stores. This is the main reason why hiring a pest control professional is the better choice; you have a better chance of clearing your home of a pest infestation with the help of a pest control service provider.

Often times, people believe that a few insects or rodents in their home are no big deal. The truth is that soon those few pests will reproduce and take over the entire home. Not only is having a pest infestation a pain, but it is also unhealthy. The entire family becomes at risk for contracting several diseases. In addition to health problems, pests also have the capability of destroying your home. Pests such as termites, cockroaches, and bed bugs can ruin furniture, walls, and even clothing.

If you’ve browsed realestate.com.au recently, you will have seen lots of properties listed as “offers over”. You might be wondering why we do this rather than just applying a fixed price.

Why we do it?
Ultimately “offers over” exposes more people to your property online, if used the right way —let’s not forget that some 90% of our buyer enquiry comes through these channels.

For buyers, realesate.com.au has set price bands when searching (ie: $400k to $450k and $450-$500k). Generally, we recommend using ‘offers over’ when you’re on the cusp of a search band.

For example, if you are aiming for a price of $460k for your home. We would list it as ‘offers over $450k’ on realesate.com.au – your property will display for buyers browsing the $400-$450k price range as well as those browsing $450-$500k.

This exposes your property to more people and gets more people to your open (people who may not have considered your property before). Even if the price is slightly out of their price range – they showed up! It’s your agent’s job from there!

We recently listed a duplex in Fitzgibbon as “offers over $300k”, a move designed to encourage a larger subset of buyers to visit the property. The home sold for $315k—an impressive figure given that the highest previous sale for a similar home in the area was $290k!

Misuse of ‘offers over’…
In my experience many agents use ‘offers over’ to avoid the uncomfortable price discussion with their owners. It’s a way for them to list the house at what they (the agent) think it’s worth without agreeing on a clear price expectation with the owner.

Can you make an offer under on an ‘offers over’ property?

Our agents will always have a firm price that the owner is expecting. After all, the first question at the open is ‘how much’?

Buyers should have the capacity to buy at or above the price indicator. Although they can open negotiations with a lower price, almost always the property will sell at or above the indicator.

When we don’t use it…
It’s not effective if your price expectation is not in line with the market.

It’s also not as effective if your ‘offers over’ price sits in the middle of a search band. A property listed as “offers over $420k” will only display for buyers searching $400k-450k”. Of course there may be some exceptions here, but this is a common mistake many agents make!

And last but not least, ‘offers over’ pricing is also useful for auctions or when agents are a little unsure on the market value (ie: for a unique property).

So if we recommend “offers over” on your next houses for sale Aspley rest assured and take it in your stride!

Award-winning comedy writer, Ian Heydon (Kingswood Country, How Green Was My Cactus, The Samuel Pepys Show, The Year My Country Broke) recently took out an unexpected award – for writing about travelling with a disability.

In 2010 Ian was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. That led to the question – what does a writer who has a disability and who loves to travel write about? The answer was pretty obvious. Because Ian uses a cane for mobility assistance, he built a website called Cane & Able Travel and that site won the inaugural Business disAbility Award for Business Innovation in 2012.

Back in 2003, Ian had a travel book on Australia published called The Small Guide to A Big Country (Explore) and he subsequently bought a travel agent’s licence (Small Guide Travel). Much of Ian’s research for that book is still valid. As Ian says, “They haven’t moved the Sydney Opera House or most of Australia’s main attractions, so all I really needed to do was update where necessary and add the accessibility and disability facility information. It’s a bonus that the Small Guide Travel consultants can assist with itinerary advice and bookings.”

When Ian travels these days he uses both a cane and a wheelchair for getting around. “Before my diagnosis with MS I guess I felt a bit of pity when I saw other people in wheelchairs. I didn’t realise that wheelchairs give a person with a disability so much freedom. Mine allows me to get around much better at airports, especially when the boarding gate can be a fair distance from check-in, and it makes art galleries, museums and theatre so much more accessible and enjoyable.”

Ian first took his wheelchair on a trip to Dubai, London and Paris in 2012. While there are websites with attractions and disability information for those destinations in the pipeline, Ian’s first priority is writing about Australia. In late 2012 he visited Cairns and road-tested attractions like Skyrail and Quicksilver’s Great Barrier Reef as well as disabled-friendly accommodation. From this came the destination specific website, Cairns Disabled Travel.

The next cab of the rank was Canberra. According to Ian, Canberra is arguably Australia’s most rewarding destination for travellers with a disability. “There are flights from all other major cities and centres, they have an excellent public transport and wheelchair-assisted taxi system and all the major attractions are accessible, with many of them free. There’s excellent accommodation, terrific restaurants and bars and so much to see and do. It really is a fabulous tourist destination. Sure, after a couple of weeks there might be some thumb twiddling but for a few days away it is fabulous.” Ian visited Canberra in 2011 and 2013 to research accessible accommodation and attractions and the Canberra Disabled Travel website is now live.

Ian has a multi-destination itinerary on the drawing board for all Australian capital cities and major regional centres so you could see him soon in your part of the country. But the Kingswood? No, he won’t be taking the Kingswood!

 

Life – what is life! Life can be described in many ways and has many facets and interpretations. It presents us with an ongoing stream of experiences of situations, events and interactions of all kinds with other people and our environment.

It is creation in its magnificent splendour – the original bringing into existence of the universe by God.

For humans it is a journey encompassing all the seasons, colour and streams of life’s experiences.

The miracle of new life in any form of creation brings wonder and amazement as we become aware of the intrinsic formation of such an unexplainable divine plan.

For humans there are many rituals and traditions that help celebrate the different seasons and significant moments in life.

A welcoming of a new child might entail a ritual of a Christening or Blessing in the Christian tradition or perhaps a Naming Ceremony for those less religious. In other cultures and belief systems children are welcomed in a variety of ways but none-the-less mostly it is found to be a joyful celebration of the miracle of new birth.

Life can sometimes be brief – the miracle taken back from where it began just as life is beginning – the mystery of why these sad experiences happen not to be explained.

Life changes for humans as the body grows and life is experienced in new ways. Learning takes place as the brain develops and intelligence is gained and used for the betterment of human kind.

At times the human body suffers from physical limitations this being a challenge as strength of spirit and courage come to the fore.

During the seasons of life ritual is shown to be important such as times of celebration when a person reaches the age of eighteen – a time of maturity and starting out as an adult on life’s journey.

Permanency of relationships can be celebrated by the ritual of Marriage as people start a new chapter along the journey called life.

The miracle of new life can emerge again in this relationship of Marriage as a new life is created and welcomed to the world.

As the continuing seasons and cycles of life are observed, life can represent colour as of a rainbow in these seasons of new beginnings, celebrations, changes and endings.

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet – colours of the rainbow – how symbolic of life’s journey as the rainbow is composed of the entire spectrum of colour from the shortest wavelength violet to the longest wavelength red.

A closing ritual now takes place as the body has accomplished its purpose and the ending of life as humans know it is honoured and the life celebrated as the spirit travels back to the Divine from whence it came.

If you are looking for a place to get only the highest quality stone cladding in Melbourne, look no further than Craftstone Oz.

Pure natural stone may have been commonplace eons ago, but it is becoming rare in this day and age as the availability of fine, beautifully crafted real stone dwindles, making it and is generally very expensive. Craftstone Oz now offers an affordable solution, manufacturing a wall and cladding material with the unique beauty and strength of natural-looking stone.

You don’t need to worry about the style appearing repetitious either. Almost a thousand molding models are used, any possibility of repetition. Another thing to note is that all of the stones are coloured individually, so there can never be any two stones exactly identical. No matter how you look at Craftstone Oz products, they appear and feel like natural stone. All of the moulds are designed to be almost identical to real stones and the process in making them ensures that each one is appropriate for the construction it is intended for.

The secret is in the base materials used. Instead of scouring the world for very rare and beautiful natural stone, Craftstone Oz moulds replicas from a combination of pumice, cement and other materials. And if you’re concerned about your feature having a ‘cookie-cutter’ appearance, there’s no need to be, because it’s impossible to detect any difference between Craftstone Oz products and real, natural stones. The colour blends throughout the material rather than being only surface, making them appear authentic.

Craftstone Oz products are lightweight and are compatible with many other kinds of materials. They will give your home or establishment a fresh new look that brings the natural beauty of stone to indoor or outdoor architecture, being the best option for feature walls, barbecues, posts, or other vertical structures. However, since they are lightweight and can be cut by construction equipment they are not suited for paths, fountains, patios or structures to be walked on.

Craftstone Oz offers a total of nineteen various textures and over eighty colours that will guarantee you the best choice of designer stone available in Melbourne. For stacked stone Melbourne, contact Craftstoneoz.com.au today.
