While once most people had at least a couple of backyard fruit trees, these days fewer people are growing them. Often this is due to a lack of space, or an aversion to the mess of fallen fruit. But there are ways around these issues, and plenty of good reasons to plant fruit trees. Community fruit and nut trees used to be highly valued as providing a core part of people’s diets, and a valuable supplement in times of seasonal scarcity. Planting fruit trees is a good move towards community food security, for both current and future generations. And it's not only people that benefit - bees, butterflies and other pollinators will value the pollen and nectar of the flowers. Bees especially like apple and peach trees, as well as blackberries, raspberries and strawberries. Consider at least two trees of the same variety, as well as some herbs and wildflowers to create a haven for some very happy bees. Fruit trees also attract other insects and caterpillars that are an essential food source for birds. Picking the fruits of your labours might also not take as long as you think - using grafted fruit trees, you could be seeing your first harvest within two to three years for most varieties. And a great idea for small spaces is multi-grafted trees or multi-planting (where up to four different fruit trees are planted in the same hole) - this way you’ll be getting a range of fruit and cross-pollinating varieties, a veritable fruit salad tree! Another excellent option for growing fruit trees in a small space is to use the espalier form, which is the ancient horticultural practice of controlling plant growth by pruning and tying the branches in such a way that they grow into a flat plane, usually against a structure like a wall, fence, or trellis. Deciduous fruit trees are also often available as dwarf trees, reaching only 3m in height, and can be grown in a large pot if they are pruned well. Fallen fruit should be picked up as soon as possible and either used up or composted. If you have the space for a few chickens, let them run under the trees, and they’ll soon take care of any windfall. Avoid waste by diligently picking off ripe and near-ripe fruit. Australian expert arborist, James O’Brien of OB Trees, is passionate about growing trees of all kinds and has extensive experience in fruit tree management and pruning as well as tree removal, vegetation management and landscaping. “With the largely temperate climate we enjoy in Melbourne, plenty of fruit tree varieties can flourish here. Planting fruit trees requires a bit of planning, and you need to know how big the tree will get to ensure you have enough space, as well as which direction it faces to ensure the area gets enough sun. Most fruit trees prefer a full days sun if they can get it, as well as a wind-protected spot. Deciduous fruit trees such as apples, plums, nectarines, peaches and pears require pruning and shaping to maximise fruit production, to ensure a good size crop and to keep the trees healthy. They may also need a cross-pollinating tree to be planted nearby,” says O'Brien. Whether you have existing fruit trees that need pruning or are just starting out with planting fruit trees in your garden, OB Trees can assist with their professional expertise and friendly service.

On the eve of Tigerlily's 20th Birthday and comeback show; models were sporting dainty and natural looking 1000 HOUR Eyelashes by 1000 HOUR Lash Director Melanie Burnicle – in collaboration with Makeup Artist Lara Karamian for Lancôme this fresh natural sun kissed look was created for the show. Tigerlily shares the same youthful curiosity as the 1000 HOUR brand. Tigerlily CEO Chris Buchanan said, "Tigerlily is one of Australia's most admired and respected brands. At Fashion Week, we will be presenting a more elevated apparel offering - think linens, silks and luxe fabrications, new swim silhouettes with classic Tigerlily prints. We’re proud to be supported by iconic Australian DIY beauty brand, 1000 HOUR, as our lash sponsor for such a special show for Tigerlily.” The show’s 1000 HOUR Lash Director and Makeup Artist Melanie Burnicle said, “My secret to creating a natural look for Tigerlily’s show was 1000 HOUR's individual lashes. I love working with Australian brands and 1000 HOUR lashes are easy to apply especially in a fast paced environment like backstage. The lashes are great for creating anything from a fresh faced day look or adding a some fabulous drama to your makeup.” Melanie’s step-by-step how-to and top tips to create the natural lash look sported on the runway today: Step 1 - Curl your lashes Curl your lashes! This helps to create a base for the false lashes and allows for a seamlessly natural look. Doing this before Mascara helps to protect your lashes from breakage. If you choose to curl once mascara is applied be very gentle and careful on releasing lashes as mascara will stick the lashes to the curler. Step 2 - Apply mascara Apply mascara before applying false lashes. This helps create structure and allows you to better judge the placement of the individual lashes especially for the natural look. Mel’s Tip: Re-applying mascara at the end of the process will add more drama to the look. Step 3 - Prep individual lashes Apply a small amount of lash glue to the back of your hand and allow it dry a little (this means you don’t need to sit still for as long waiting for it to dry on the eye) and line up the Individual lashes close to the glue so you can see what you are working with. Mel’s Tip: If you need to, trim the individual false lashes before applying to ensure they aren’t too much longer than your natural lashes. This will help the false lashes to blend, creating a really natural look. Step 4 - Use tweezers to apply each lash Use tweezers so you can angle the lash application and help you to place the lashes flat into your lash line. Remember to make sure that the lashes don’t sit higher on the skin. If so, they will be visible especially in a natural makeup look. Mel’s Tip: Remember to look at your eye shape as most eyes aren’t symmetrical, so you may need 3 lashes on one eye and 4 on the other. If your brows sit low, don’t add too much length in the lashes you apply on inner corners as it will create a smaller eyelid. If your eyes are very round, don’t apply lashes right on the outer corner as it will follow your eye shape and drag the eye down and not lift it up for a youthful appearance. 1000 HOUR Individual Lashes are available in two styles Short to Medium and Medium to Long RRP $9.49. 1000 HOUR's range of false lashes are available in Priceline stores nationwide or online at www.1000hour.com.au ABOUT 1000HOUR: This iconic brand has been in the beauty business for over 25 years and is well known for high quality products by makeup artists and beauty lovers alike. 1000HOUR boasts product collections ranging from the ever-popular Eyelash and Eyebrow Dye Kits to false lashes, hair colour mascaras and DIY beauty tools to enhance your at-home beauty routine.

Justine Wilson, Sydney Property Styling Expert and Director of Vault Interiors, has shared her top 8 bedroom styling hacks to help your home feel warmer and extra cosy this winter – on-trend of course! Justine Wilson says, “Having a visually warm environment will enrich all the senses. Creating a cosy atmosphere in your bedroom in winter is as easy as updating your colour scheme and adding new accessories, textures and fabrics. It’s all about creating warmth and a relaxing, comfortable space where you can snuggle up under the blankets with a good book and a cup of tea.” Justine’s top 8 bedroom styling hacks: It’s all about the layers – Instead of turning up the heater, look to warm up your bedroom by layering textures and fabrics that will help trap in heat. Adding a thick wool or faux fur throw to your bed will instantly create an inviting space. Update your colour scheme – Deep colours including plum, magenta and mustard echo the falling leaves and natural winter palette. Switch up your bedroom colour scheme by adding cushions, accessories, vessels and candles with these rich colours and tones. Add sweet scents – Candles not only look great but also provide much needed warmth and light. Select a large tray and add a few different sized candles with winter scents such as vanilla and caramel to set the ultimate romantic mood. Rug up – If you have wooden floorboards in your bedroom, instantly create warmth by adding a simple plush shag or sisal rug to keep your toes warm and comfortable. Add some life – Adding a vase of fresh flowers, ferns or succulents on the bedside table or on top of your dresser will breathe fresh life into your bedroom. Fresh plants will also help filtrate the air. Light it up – With less natural light in the winter months, incorporating floor and table lights will help brighten up your bedroom. Try swapping out cool bulbs for warmer ones to create a more relaxed and comfortable environment. Mirror image – Large-scale mirrors are a great décor item to impact light levels and make your bedroom feel bigger. A floor length standing mirror or large wall mirror hung vertically can instantly brighten up the space and bring warmth and light to your bedroom. Curtains – Thick floor-length curtains create instant insulation and trap in the heat to keep your bedroom looking and feeling warm and homely all day long.

This vital piece of communication to young girls, their families and thousands of active and potential volunteers, will highlight the diverse experiences on offer and its relevance for the young girls of today. Sarah Neill, State Commissioner said that Girl Guides provides a place for young people to feel secure. “We come together over a variety of activities, build confidence and resilience which makes our young people better able to cope with their lives. “We encourage our girls to build life skills, and have the freedom to be adventurous, learn strong communication skills, laugh, and make life-long friendships,” said Commissioner Neill. Ella Ezergailis, aged 12, was inspired to join Girl Guides after hearing her mother’s stories of Guiding and wanted her share of adventure and fun. In 2018, Ella became the youngest Girl Guide to take part in ‘Girl Takeover Parliament’ event, in which she watched Question Time in the Chamber of the House of Representatives. Disgusted by the behaviour, Ella wrote a letter to Prime Minister Scott Morrison telling him so. “I decided to write to the Prime Minister and ask him to change the culture in Parliament House. I told him he should visit my school to learn how to behave respectfully. “My letter was shared around the world on social media and was reported by news outlets. “Girl Guides has given me the confidence to do such a thing, however the result made me feel that a 12-year-old girl’s voice was important, and girls do have the power to change the world,” said Ella. Now in its 99th year, Girl Guides in NSW & ACT has 7,400 members across 540 Units. Comissioner Neill said recent research revealed that 90% of girls joined the organisation before the age of 11 and stayed because it provided the perfect antidote to the complex and pressured lives of young people. “Our research showed that young girls join for the things they need most at this stage of their lives: fun, meeting friends outside of school and developing new skills. “Parents said they wanted their daughters to join to help them build their confidence, meet new friends and have a community orientation to their life. “Our programs offer a connection to experiences and community that schools and busy families can’t. “We have large scale events and the traditional jamboree, but mostly girls choose their own activities to complete, from creative pursuits to sailing, coding to cooking, orientation to fundraising,” said Commissioner Neill. A Place To Grow will use the 540 Units of Girl Guides NSW & ACT, to promote the stories of resilience, confidence building and friendship it encourages, through social media, local press, local events such as school fetes and Girl Guides own Come and Try nights. Helen White, CEO said, the grass-roots approach is what Girl Guides excel at. “Over 1,000,000 Australians are or have been a Girl Guide. We work at the local level, in communities and across regions supporting and empowering the women of tomorrow. “There is a resurgence of interest in Girl Guides, as young people and their families look at ways to combat the pressures of busy and digital lives. We’re all about supporting someone to find their own path, to build resilience, and life skills to take them wherever they wish,” said Ms White. However, is Girl Guides still relevant for the girls of today? Ella says that it is. “Girl Guides is even more relevant to young people growing up with a digital life. “Girl Guides teaches you how to interact socially, be a responsible citizen, how to deal with emergency situations and gives you the courage to accept challenges. “I even went on camp for a week without my phone, and I survived.” More information: www.aplacetogrow.org.au Mother’s Day gift idea | Unusual but very practical gift for Mum this Mother’s Day 2019-04-30T07:27:43Z mothers-day-gift-idea-unusual-but-very-practical-gift-for-mum-this-mothers-day-1 Being just a fraction over the legal limit could spell disaster in the household if Mum was caught drink driving.

Sick of shark tax, losing your fish catch to sharks? 2019-04-28T20:20:40Z sick-of-shark-tax-losing-your-fish-catch-to-sharks Sick of shark tax, losing your fish catch to sharks? Introducing Ocean Guardian’s FISH01 – Powered by Shark Shield Technology Media Release - 29 April 2019 Raising high quality fish species from the depths can be a demoralizing experience if sharks are in attendance. Thanks to the latest innovation from Ocean Guardian, the new FISH01 has been specifically developed for the fishing industry to improve catch rates by reducing shark tax. The new device is powered by Shark Shield Technology, the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent, and has been proven to prevent the majority of shark species from attacking hooked fish, improving efficiency and resulting in less time at sea. Ocean Guardian CEO, Lindsay Lyon, says, “The major outcome from a trial using Shark Shield Technology conducted by the Western Australian Fishing Industry Council indicated that electrical shark deterrents do deter the majority of shark's species from attacking hooked fish.” “For many years we have known that both recreational and commercial fishermen have been using our Shark Shield Technology to significantly improve catch rates, we are now very excited to deliver a product specifically designed to meet their needs, the FISH01” Key features of the FISH01: Dramatically reduces collateral damage from sharks Between 10-12 hours of battery life – continuous operation Protective field up to 15 meters deep and 6 meters wide Maximum operating depth of 200m Available for pre-order online, shipping June 2019 How to use the FISH01: 20 meters or less depth: Position half way between the surface and the bottom thereby creating a broad zone from the surface to the bottom. Greater than 20 meters depth: It can be impossible to predict where in the water column sharks are likely to strike your fish. Position close to the sharks, as deep as 200m. “The FISH01 has no effect on the target fish species. Shark Shield Technology has been developed to specifically take advantage of the highly sensitive electrical receptors called the "Ampullae of Lorenzini" present in a shark’s snout. As fish are without these receptors Shark Shield Technology has negligible effect on them. Divers and Spear fishers have also observed that fish are unaffected by their Ocean Guardian devices,” adds Lindsay. www.ocean-guardian.com About Ocean Guardian: In 2018, the Shark Shield company became Ocean Guardian®. The change of name reflects our bigger ambition - to replace shark nets and drum lines globally - to make you safe whatever you enjoy doing in the Ocean, while also protecting marine life. Ocean Guardian, powered by Shark Shield Technology, is the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent. Government approved and developed over two decades of research, Ocean Guardian’s patented technology creates a powerful three-dimensional electrical field, which causes safe but unbearable spasms in shark’s short-range electrical receptors, turning sharks away - including Great Whites. Nothing is more effective.

Yohannan. “A mosquito net costs only $10, but due to extreme poverty, many families cannot afford to buy one, so children are left exposed to what could be a deadly mosquito bite. That’s why providing mosquito nets free-of-charge in the name of Jesus is a top priority for GFA.”   The Texas based aid agency’s response comes as World Malaria Day highlights the ongoing catastrophic impact of the mosquito-borne disease, with the World Health Organization (WHO) reporting that progress in curbing malaria has stalled. Between 2015 and 2017, the estimated number of annual malaria deaths worldwide remained unchanged, WHO reports, stating: “Urgent action is needed to get the global response to malaria back on track.” WHO is currently field testing the first malaria vaccine.   This year, World Malaria Day – centred on the theme “zero malaria starts with me” – focuses on “empowering communities to take ownership of malaria prevention and care,” reflecting GFA’s community-based work in isolated villages across Asia where the disease affects millions of children and adults. Worldwide, 3.3 billion people living in tropical and subtropical regions are at risk.   Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted to people through bites of infected female mosquitoes, known as anopheles. In people lacking immunity – especially pregnant mothers and young children – symptoms appear 10-15 days after the bite. Symptoms include fever, headache, chills and vomiting. Severe cases in children can cause anemia and respiratory distress. Without treatment within 24 hours, certain types of malaria can kill.   Health workers at GFA-sponsored medical camps teach families the importance of sleeping every night under a mosquito net and making sure they remove stagnant water around their homes to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds.   In one village, Shara and her husband, Jitan, received a free mosquito net at a GFA-sponsored distribution through their local church. “My husband often suffered with malaria fever,” Shara said, “and that has made him physically weak. Now, this mosquito net will help protect us.”   Jitan described the net as a gift from God. “Christians not only pray for people but also fulfill the most urgent needs of our community,” he said.   ###   Celebrating its 40thanniversary in 2019, GFA World ( www.gfaau.org) is a leading faith-based humanitarian and mission agency, bringing vital assistance and spiritual hope to millions, especially to those who have yet to hear the "good news" of Jesus Christ.

Those simple finishing touches - a pop of colour, a scented candle or a glorious artwork, can brighten up any space and make every room feel stylish and complete! Justine Wilson, Sydney Property Styling Expert and Director of Vault Interiors, has shared her top tips on how to select and incorporate the right accessories into your home so that every space feels fresh and elegant. Justine Wilson says, “At Vault Interiors we believe it’s so easy and so worthwhile to make your home look and feel just that little bit nicer. Don’t underestimate the importance of finishing touches – whether you’re doing up your own home to enjoy, setting up a rental property or staging a property for sale. You don’t have to spend a fortune renovating or redecorating your entire property, it’s as simple as adding the right accessories!” Justine’s top tips on how to add finishing touches to your home: Select an accent colour and utilise it throughout the home – Coordinating a room just like the professionals is easy, just choose a colour to carry throughout your home and accentuate it with accessories. Only a pop of colour is needed, for example a splash of dusty pink in an artwork can be repeated through pink cushions on the lounge, pink flowers or vases on the coffee table. Jazz up the dining table – A nice table runner or eye-catching centrepiece can be the difference between your room looking enticing or just average. Fresh seasonal flowers, candles or greenery in a simple vase paired with stylish cutlery and dinnerware helps to create a polished finish. Create an atmosphere in your outdoor spaces – It’s important not to forget about the outdoor spaces, so dress them the same as you would inside to create flow and continuity. Scatter cushions across the lounge setting, add small potted plants to the table and hang up some lanterns to create a relaxing and peaceful ambience. Don’t neglect the bathroom – Coloured towels, scented candles and soap dispensers can go a long way to dress up a tired space. Hide away all your daily products and add a vase of fresh flowers, some perfumes and bath salts to the vanity to create the feeling of an elegant day spa. Spruce up your bedroom – A simple bedspread can be elevated by adding in some scatter cushions and a bed throw. You can repeat an accent colour that you’ve used elsewhere in the home or mix it up and try adding a contrasting colour to brighten up the space. Matching bedside tables and lamps and a dresser will also help create harmony in the space.
