Trailblazing new program making it easier for families to travel 2019-05-20T23:52:50Z trailblazing-new-program-making-it-easier-for-families-to-travel Heading off on holidays might be a relatively simple thing to do, but when it comes to travelling with kids, it’s usually not that easy, which is why Australian woman Nicci O’Mara, developed the Family Trips Made Easy academy. A first for the travel industry, Family Trips Made Easy is a six-week online course, designed to help busy parents save time, money and stress planning family trips.  “I take the guesswork and time-wasting out of planning an amazing family trip, by teaching parents my step-by-step process, and giving them all the resources and tools they’ll need, so they can travel cheaper, easier and with confidence,” said Trip Chiefs Founder, Nicci O’Mara. The creator of Family Trips Made Easy, mum to two young boys, and intrepid traveller, Nicci O’Mara came up with the idea after finding it so difficult and time consuming to piece together all the information she needed to plan her own family trips. “When I first started travelling with my kids, I did what we all do. Get on Google and start searching for things to do in Rome with kids, where to stay in San Francisco, and how to see the Great Barrier Reef,” she said.  “I’d spend hours and hours clicking and reading, only to find I was overwhelmed with too much information and not much of it was based on the experiences and needs of families.  So I’d ask the travel agent, friends and family, and they’d give me some good recommendations but it would only answer a few questions.  I also needed to know how to work out how much money we’d need, how did I put together an itinerary that catered to the needs and pace of having kids, did my kids need car seats, and how on earth was I going to keep them happy on a 20-hour flight?” There’s so much parents need to know, which is why Nicci developed Family Trips Made Easy academy, so that other parents can benefit from her years of research and experience, together with the checklists, templates, destination research sites lists, tools and sanity saving tips she now uses for every trip.  “I know this is going to be an absolute game-changer for parents who want to take amazing trips with their kids, no matter whether they’re dreaming of a trip, or already planning, and whether they’re using a travel agent or doing things themselves.” Nicci has spent the past three years teaching parents how to make it easier to travel with their kids. Parents like Helen and her husband, former Olympic swimmer Darren Lange. “You’ve done all the work for us! Instead of having to go to heaps of different websites to find each piece of information, it was all there in the course, step-by-step. It was clear, quick and easy to do, and the bonus is I can revisit it once I get closer to leaving on our trip. I thought I knew everything I needed to know but there were so many things I hadn’t thought of. I was so wrapped up in the big stuff like flights, that I was forgetting all the crucial little details – time savers, mind savers and financial savers,” Helen said. And Brisbane mother of three, Dahlas Fletcher. “I thought I could find all the info for my upcoming trip to Canada from friends, family and my travel agent. However, when I dived into the course, there were so many things I hadn’t thought of. Trip Chiefs’ consolidates everything into the one spot so you know what you need to do next and where to find it. A must for anyone planning a trip with children!” Dahlas said. If you’re dreaming of travelling with your kids but without the stress and overwhelm, or, if you've already started planning your trip and want to to make it easier and be more confident in your decisions, you’ll see how Family Trips Made Easy academy can get you there in less time and with less stress.

Discover the secret ingredient to younger looking skin 2019-05-20T01:50:05Z discover-the-secret-ingredient-to-younger-looking-skin Discover the secret ingredient to younger looking skin Ceramide and Vitamin E Skin Oil from Africa Media Release - May 2019 We all want younger looking skin, so it’s never too early to prevent the visible signs of ageing. Thanks to BodyPlus Skin Oil you can now keep those wrinkles at bay to ensure your skin remains looking soft and youthful for longer! CEO of McGloins Supertex Nick Barnes says, “It’s so important to look after our skin no matter what age you are. You can also use it when you’re young to keep skin looking amazing, or when you’re older as the active ingredients ceramide and Vitamin E inject moisture into the skin to help rewind the effects of ageing”. The secret lies within BodyPlus Skin Oil’s active ingredient ceramide, which works to capture and bind moisture to hydrate the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and age lines. BodyPlus Skin Oil is also enriched with Vitamin E, which aids in the prevention of dry and flaky skin. Ceramide has long been used as an anti-ageing agent as it helps repair and rejuvenate the skin’s natural defence barrier to protect the skin and increase moisture retention.

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.

Concerns from CWA of NSW that looming election stalling drought assistance commitments 2019-05-07T21:30:16Z concerns-from-cwa-of-nsw-that-looming-election-stalling-drought-assistance-commitments Hi The Country Women's Association (CWA) of NSW's State Conference continues in Albury today after delegates yesterday overwhelmingly endorsed a motion that calls for a firm and ongoing commitment to drought assistance from the country's major political parties. The association is also concerned the looming Federal Election is stalling the release of more information on initiatives announced in the Federal Budget, and announced by the Federal Government last week. "Major issues, such as drought, should be treated with a bipartisan approach and all major parties should have a firm position for action on drought so money and support gets to where it’s needed without delay," CWA of NSW State President Annette Turner said. “It’s too important to play politics with and must be treated with the urgency it deserves. The fact the government is in ‘caretaker mode’ should make no difference. In drought-stricken areas, every single day bites. Unlike politicians, we can’t ask our farmers to wait a few weeks, while there is a potential changing of the guard.” Attached and below is a media release on the urgency motion. For further information or interview requests please let me know. Kind regards, Kylie Galbraith Seftons Tamworth NSW 2340 Ph. 0411 480 208 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MEDIA RELEASE Concerns that looming election stalling drought assistance commitments The Country Women’s Association of NSW is urgently seeking assurances from both sides of politics on an ongoing commitment to drought assistance following concerns the upcoming Federal Election has thrown a shadow of uncertainty over future aid schemes for drought-stricken areas of the state. It follows an announcement last week by Prime Minister Scott Morrison on new re-stocking and re-planting loans of up to $200,000 for farm businesses, part of a $500 million package that includes the establishment of a specific “Regional Investment Corporation” for the loans, once conditions improve. The package also includes funding for more rural financial counsellors. The Country Women’s Association (CWA) of NSW at its State Conference in Albury yesterday, prior to a visit to the conference by Mr Morrison, expressed concerns that now the Government is in ‘caretaker mode’ pending the federal election, there is no further information available around the announcement and that the federal Opposition has not yet indicated its intention to support the scheme should it win the May 18 ballot. “As it stands the Opposition has even expressed some hesitation at the issuing of concessional loans, which means if we have a change of government, we may not see the program get off the ground at all,” said Annette Turner, CWA of NSW State President. “We are calling for all major political parties to state their support for this scheme. Major issues, such as drought, should be treated with a bipartisan approach and all major parties should have a firm position for action on drought so money and support gets to where it’s needed without delay. “It’s too important to play politics with and must be treated with the urgency it deserves. The fact the government is in ‘caretaker mode’ should make no difference. In drought-stricken areas, every single day bites. Unlike politicians, we can’t ask our farmers to wait a few weeks, while there is a potential changing of the guard.” The motion of urgency, which was unanimously carried by delegates, included a call for consideration of grants for farmers, as well as loans, Mrs Turner saying that while they welcomed concessional loans, they wanted the major parties to look further into grants, where appropriate. The motion encompassed the need for more information on the budget announcement of $5 million for the Country Women’s Association of Australia to assist with the ongoing allocation of drought assistance grants, along with a call for the streamlining and simplification of the Farm Household Allowance scheme, in the wake of ongoing complaints from applicants about the excessive ‘red tape’ around the scheme. “We have publicly applauded the Government for the funding for the CWA of Australia. And as we have proven, drought funding is in very good hands with the CWA, with the state associations efficiently, and at no cost, getting every dollar to where it is needed. However, we need all parties to confirm ongoing support for this. If there is a change of Government we need to know that all parties support this important work,” Mrs Turner said. Several other urgency motions around water security for regional communities are also due to be discussed by delegates today, including one relating to the inadequate quality of town water in many regional areas and the need for greater transparency on decision-making under the Murray Darling Basin Plan, particularly relating to the allocation of water and the balance between social, economic and environmental factors in water management.
