The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-01-21T02:33:36Z Salon Results For A Fraction Of The Cost! 2019-01-21T02:33:36Z salon-results-for-a-fraction-of-the-cost We all want perfect brows and lashes, but the idea of ditching mascara and brow products on a daily basis is far more appealing, especially on hot summer days when makeup application becomes difficult. While you might be able to achieve this with regular trips to the salon, why waste time and money when you can get perfectly tinted lashes and brows, hassle-free and for a fraction of the price? The 1000HOUR Lash & Brow Dye Kit enables you to achieve professional results from the comfort of your own home, and in just three easy steps, you’ll have perfectly coloured lashes and brows without the price you’d pay for in-salon treatments. Tegan Martin, 1000HOUR Brand Ambassador says, “I’ve saved my friends hundreds of dollars on eyebrow tinting by showing them this DIY kit, it’s perfect to pull out on a girls beauty night. A relaxing self-love treat for me is a night on my own in my pyjamas, a cup of tea, face mask followed by lash and brow tint and a hair treatment. If I do this on a Sunday I know I am going into the week as my happiest, most confident self.” The quick and easy-to-use product provides no smudge, waterproof colour for eyelashes and brows with results that last up to six weeks, and with up to 12 applications per pack, that’s over a years supply in one box. And, the best part is one 1000HOUR kit is less than the cost of one salon treatment! 1000HOUR Lash & Brow Dye is available in up to six colours – Natural Black, Dark Brown, Brown Black and Blue Black in the original formulation. Plus Natural Black, Dark Brown, Medium Brown and Light Brown in a new gentle plant-extract formulation developed for people with sensitive skin or those who cannot use peroxide based products. 1000HOUR Lash & Brow Dye Kit RRP $19.95 1000HOUR is available at Priceline, BIG W and Coles stores and online at www.1000hour.com.au The Latest Skin & Haircare Essentials For Bub 2019-01-21T02:03:10Z the-latest-skin-haircare-essentials-for-bub Chemcorp International is excited to announce the expansion of their product offerings for babies from two leading international brands, SheaMoisture and Dr Teal’s, with ranges featuring gentle products to nurture and care for delicate baby skin, and help make bath time fun!

Large area spaces on high-rise buildings present the opportunity for greening more surface area in total in the one job. Over the past two years the team has seen a dramatic increase in demand for greening the exteriors of high-rise buildings, with a number of large projects lined up for 2019 already. Mark Paul says, “We have been working tirelessly on creating new forms of eco-friendly greenwalls for all types of spaces, including new designs for high-rise buildings. Not only do greenwalls look fantastic on the exteriors of the buildings, but they truly transform the aesthetics and atmosphere of the street, and surrounding areas, not to mention the health benefits. “With the current boom in high-rise buildings around the country, we are excited to be working on some large projects and greening tall, large and prominent spaces with the use of larger ecological systems.” adds Mark. Mark Paul created what is believed to be the very first greenwall in Australia over 30 years ago. Today, green design is an influential part of the public domain and design interest, so naturally if there are more high-rise building developments, other trends often follow suit. Mark’s top 3 tips for green façades on high-rise buildings: Trailing or cascading plants with high biodiversity are best for high-rise buildings in order to create habitats for many native species. Plant examples include: Ficus, Metrosideros, Brachychiton Our greenwall & green roof systems are morphing into more passive gravity fed systems that offer opportunities for black water and grey water remediation with back ups of solar pumping of utilities. The more surface area to green on high-rise buildings, the better, and the more supportive the greenwall will be for the larger ecological systems. In this kind of environment many species are known to reside including over 23 species of birds, geckos, skinks and frogs amongst others.These larger scale applications can provide not just energy efficiency and amenity, but cooling and shading and expand biodiversity and eventually create flora and fauna corridors/ecosystems as part of the built environment. About the Greenwall Company: The Greenwall Company is the premier producer of modular and custom designed greenwalls in Australia. An unequalled product, Greenwall can be used like cladding to produce instant ‘greenspace’ both inside and out. The system developed by Mark Paul at The Greenwall Company over approximately 30 years, presents an innovative system based on inorganic media and adjustable substrate depth that retains moisture and simulates conditions resembling natural soil. In addition, by using plants adapted to impoverished environments and seasonal drought, The Greenwall Company achieves water efficient planting that is resilient to inevitable short-term human and mechanical failures. www.greenwall.com.au dermaviduals hosts Skin Fitness Event for Silver Ferns Netball Team 2018-12-21T00:50:37Z dermaviduals-hosts-skin-fitness-event-for-silver-ferns-netball-team Known for their bespoke skincare and makeup ranges, dermaviduals is pleased to share their latest involvement with New Zealand’s national netball team, the Silver Ferns.

But while being a host can make you some quick cash, short-term rental services such as Airbnb might not be worth all the hype – at least not for the property owner. Now, don’t get me wrong, renting out your property is not a bad idea. In fact, property rental is a smart way to get ahead, but perhaps consider the benefits of long-term rental and how by enlisting the help of a real estate agency or an experienced property manager, you could save yourself time and avoid the hassle of dealing directly with renters. Here are some reasons why you should consider long-term rental: Know the people staying in your home. While you may not know them personally, chances are property agents will find tenants with a good rental reputation, so you know your property will be looked after. It’s their job to find tenants for you, so you don’t have to worry about doing the work. Consistent rental income. Most leases are on average 12 months, so you can rest easy knowing you have steady rental income for that period, which provides both security and stability. On the contrary, short-term rentals don’t always guarantee occupancy which, depending on your situation, could put a strain on your financials. Peace of mind. Having an agent manage your property ensures it will be looked after and if any issues were to arise, you wouldn’t be left having to deal with them alone. Consider them a mediator between you and the tenants. Expertise. While it may seem obvious, property agents are skilled and experienced in property management. This means they can offer you advice when needed and can guide you in making the right decisions based on your circumstances and situation. Minimise legal risks. Airbnb might be against the bylaws of your building. Therefore, it could present the property owner with legal implications. Reduce dollars spent on repairs. Short-term rental could cause more wear and tear on items in the property, potentially resulting in more regular maintenance, and possibly costing more in the long run. No insurance worries. Many insurers regard short-stay holiday rentals as commercial use of the property. This means owners may not be protected by home and content insurance if something were to happen. Ultimately, this could potentially leave the homeowner financially vulnerable to financial loss.

Mark Foy's 2019 Property Predictions 2018-12-19T03:31:55Z mark-foys-2019-property-predictions 2019 Predictions For The Surry Hills Property Market Media Release - December 2018 The last few years have been a challenging time for those wishing to dive into the property market, but with the median house prices in Sydney down 8.1%* since its peak in 2017, experts predict that house prices will continue to fall opening up new opportunities for those who have previously missed out. The Surry Hills market continues to remain relatively steady**, but Mark Foy, Principal at Belle Property Surry Hills, predicts the median house price will continue to fall, but there is light. Mark says, “There’s exciting times ahead for those wishing to buy as they’ll be able to take advantage of the drop in the market – especially for first home buyers. But be warned, it won’t last forever. The first half of 2019 is your best bet for buying, before the federal election.” While it’s said the median house price will continue falling, experts state it could be difficult to determine just how much until after the federal election, which could see changes to negative gearing and capital gains. Mark Foy’s predications for the property market in 2019: First home buyers who have been monitoring the market will immerge to take advantage of the better buying opportunities that will be on offer in 2019. Buyers who have the borrowing capacity to trade up to a higher price bracket will be rewarded by the value the higher end of the market now offers. Investors will seek to purchase prior to the federal election in the likely case that labour is elected and negative gearing is grandfathered. Prices will dip an additional 10% in the next 12 months due to negative sentiment however the fundaments of a strong healthy Surry Hills property market still remain strong. Short-term rental accommodation will continue to be a popular avenue for investors and rents will stabilise. *Corelogic.com.au ** Propertyvalue.com.au belleproperty.com/surryhills For further information or to speak with Mark Foy, please contact: Rachel King @ 360 PR: 02 9571 4448 or rachel@360pr.com.au Warakirri College Fairfield’s Students and Teachers Welcome Fantastic Furniture’s Christmas Gift 2018-12-19T00:36:30Z warakirri-college-fairfield-s-students-and-teachers-welcome-fantastic-furniture-s-christmas-gift A total of five brand new sofas in shades of navy and vibrant teal were delivered to the school, and have been wholeheartedly welcomed by students, teachers and administrators. Three sofas have been installed in a student common area to replace worn furniture; feedback from students describes the new additions as ‘super comfortable’ and ‘great for hanging out’. One sofa has gone to the counsellor’s office, where there’s plenty of traffic; and the last to the library, which also doubles as a quiet room for students who need to recharge. “The environment here is what makes Warakirri different. Our partnership with Fantastic has enabled us to provide our students with a beautiful, comfortable environment that helps them feel safe and able to be themselves. And when they feel comfortable, they’re better placed to learn and thrive,” said Jennifer Lawrence, Head of Campus at Warakirri College Fairfield. “These donations have a practical aspect too: the money we’ve saved on these sofas is now able to be spent on providing our students with more opportunities to learn.” MTC Australia has enjoyed a mutually beneficial partnership with Fantastic Furniture since 2014. Fantastic has furnished rooms at MTC Auburn and Parramatta, as well as both Warakirri College campuses at Fairfield and Blacktown; offered work experience opportunities to MTC SEE (Skills for Education & Employment) students; and employed young people from the Transition to Work program. “Fantastic Furniture is thrilled to have been associated with MTC and Warakirri College since 2014.

An original formula that is known and trusted by many over the past 5 years since launching, the green coloured concealer neutralises redness and hides blemishes like a magic wand. Celebrated Makeup Artist to the stars, Michael Brown, swears by this product. Michael says, “Green sticks/correctors have been around in the makeup world for years and are used to diffuse redness on the skin… You apply the green tone on the concerned area to counteract the reddish skin hues visible, then apply foundation over the corrected skin for a more flawless, even skin tone." Michael explains, “The dermaviduals Cover & Conceal stick is just enough green with a yellow undertone to match all skin tones and still diffuse redness very easily, but the added ‘conceal’ element means the product is slightly more dense than most, to actually completely tone down and block unwanted pinkish hues from the skin.” Key Benefits of dermaviduals Cover & Conceal: Corrects uneven skin tones. Opposite on the colour wheel when placed on top of the red irritated skin the green colouring neutralises the skin. Perfect for all skin types.

During this time, it is important that all ocean lovers take responsibility for their own water safety and look out for each other. Two-time World Surfing Champion Tom Carroll shares his top 11 tips to protect yourself from an unwanted shark encounter this summer. Tom Carroll says, “Shark Shield Technology is a win for surfers and sharks alike. It takes the wellbeing of sharks as seriously as the protection of humans and provides the ultimate safety for ocean enthusiasts during the upcoming warmer months. Ideally don’t surf alone and it’s best if you can stay out of the water at night, dawn and dusk, it’s known that these are the times when sharks will be searching for food.” Tom Carroll shares his 11 top tips to stay safe in the ocean this summer: Download the Dorsal App for iPhone or Android – Dorsal is a free community-based shark alerting solution that allows beachgoers and authorities to immediately alert others to shark sighting or attacks in their area. Wear a scientifically proven shark deterrent – Ocean Guardian products are powered by Shark Shield Technology, the world’s only scientifically proven electrical shark deterrent, nothing is more effective. Stay out of the water at night, dawn, or dusk – Sharks are most active at these times and are well equipped to locate prey even when visibility is poor. Refrain from excessive splashing – Unpredictable movements can attract sharks. If you are spearfishing and carrying fish when you see a shark, release the catch and carefully leave the area. Don't wear high-contrast clothing or light reflecting jewellery – Sharks see contrast very well and light reflecting objects may appear to be fish scales. Swim, surf or dive with a buddy – Sharks most often attack lone individuals. Avoid murky waters, harbour entrances, channels, and steep drop-offs – Sharks frequently swim around these areas. Swim in patrolled beaches Surf lifesavers look for sharks and will alert beach-goers if there is a sighting. Don't enter the water if bleeding – Sharks have an excellent sense of smell and taste and can trace blood to its source. Avoid areas where animal, human, or fish waste enters the water – Sewage attracts baitfish, which in turn attracts sharks. If fish or turtles start to act frantically, leave the water – They may be behaving this way because there is a shark nearby. Ocean Guardian CEO, Lindsay Lyon says, “The reality is that our Australian beaches are very safe, particularly for the general population swimming between the flags at patrolled beaches. However, if your diving or surfing then definitely consider using an Ocean Guardian, Powered by Shark Shield Technology, don’t take the risk, think of it like driving without a seatbelt.” 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.
