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.

Caloburb Encourage Healthy Eating in 2019 2019-01-13T21:14:29Z caloburb-encourage-healthy-eating-in-2019 The New Year is generally the time to make some resolutions for the year to come, and one of the most commonly held resolutions is weight loss and fitness. At Calocurb they say that we need to find ways of working with our hunger, rather than against it, and for starters, acknowledging and understanding our individual differences can help. Our health and wellbeing plans need to reflect the realities of our bodies and lives, and what works for one person might not work for another. Likewise, finding our own personal routine that delivers results will take time and some experimentation. It’s also the small changes, reinforced over time and repetition, that really deliver results. For those in need of a helping hand, tools such as calocurb can help with those hunger urges. As they say at Calocurb, “Most importantly, let’s be kinder to ourselves. We need to acknowledge that willpower doesn’t always work on its own – and that’s ok. We’re up against incredibly powerful evolutionary forces inside all of us. Understanding the battle between willpower and evolution when dieting is the first step on the road to making health and wellbeing choices that deliver real results. So, let’s not beat ourselves up. Often our primal urges will be stronger than our ability to resist them”.    Calocurb is make up of an extract from hops grown at the top of the South Island here in New Zealand. This bitter hops flower ingredient is packed into a patent-pending super capsule, designed to release in just the right spot in the stomach. This extract has a compound with a unique superpower.

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 IXUP achieves global ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security certification 2018-12-19T01:44:21Z ixup-achieves-global-iso-iec-27001-information-security-certification Sydney, Australia - 19 December 2018 -- IXUP achieves global ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security certification Validates IXUP’s information security management system ISO/IEC 27001 certifies risk management processes Highlights IXUP’s commitment to information governance and safeguarding data Secure data collaboration company, IXUP Limited (ASX: IXU) (“IXUP” or the “Company”), today announced it has obtained ISO/IEC 27001 certification.

The only product you will need to Cover and Conceal 2018-12-17T01:26:56Z the-only-product-you-will-need-to-cover-and-conceal Whether you are prone to breakouts, redness or inflammation, dermaviduals’ Cover & Conceal is the perfect go-to full coverage concealer. 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.” Naturally an olive-green shade, dermaviduals’ Cover & Conceal neutralises reddened skin tones thanks to Bisabolol, the main active agent of chamomile, which results in skin correction (not just concealing!) via anti-inflammatory and zinc oxide antiseptic properties to reduce inflammation caused by irritation, breakouts and other skin problems. 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.” The miracle stick, dermaviduals’ Cover & Conceal, can also be used as preparation for sensitive, irritated skins possibly in conjunction with small amounts of dermaviduals’ Liposome Concentrate Plus (antibacterial: acne, rosacea) or Kiwi Seed Oil Nanoparticles (anti-inflammatory: irritated skin) to further calm and correct the skin. “It can even be pressed/dabbed onto skin after foundation is applied for extra total block out, as this product tone is more complimentary to the skin than most ‘green’ correctors,” adds Michael.
