Out of the Ashes- a new Steampunk Circus Spectacular fires up in Brunswick 2020-12-09T04:21:03Z out-of-the-ashes-a-new-steampunk-circus-spectacular-fires-up-in-brunswick Rising from the ashes of lockdown, the home of Brunswick’s famous creative subculture, Rubix Warehouse has been reborn. Just like the famed bird with which it shares a street name, it’s dusting off its feathers to deliver an all-new spectacular dinner show experience. A pandemic-forced hiatus afforded founder and owner Tanya El Gamal a chance to recalibrate, and the time to curate and collaborate with a number of artists. El Gamal wanted to allow the avant-garde club to mature as she had, finding a solution for supporting artists and a new way to continue to keep this creative venue evolving. The result is a theatrical Steampunk Circus experience encompassing an award-winning cast who will take up a performance residency at Rubix, backed by live house band The Ruffled Feathers. The inclusive dinner and show experience will deliver some of the country’s best in circus and cabaret performance; a structured arts experience that will surprise, tantalise and tease. Steampunk encompasses a 19th-century Victorian-inspired industrial fusion of sci-fi and technology; amalgamating fashion, make up, accessories and jewellery. The subculture evolving from the notion that the world would look a little different if the era’s inhabitants had prevailed over technological innovation and escaping to the safe space from the crumbling outside world. Airmistress Octavia will take you to new heights, while Vera Von Vixen simultaneously plunges you into sexual desire. Be mystified and amazed with the juggling skills of NICA superstar Mistatrix and set your world on fire with brazen burlesque beauty Luna Rouge. All the while be lulled into an alternate world with the chords of singer Madam Phoenix. Tickets include two-course dinner from the all-new Rubix pizza bar, a complimentary drink on arrival and 1.5 hour Smokin' Phoenix Steampunk Circus show. Up to two shows per evening will run from Thursdays to Saturdays at 6.30pm and 8.30pm until February, see ticket link for shows. “Rubix has always supported the fringes of music-loving individuals in a fluidity that transcends all genres. We are so excited to innovate once again with a unique offering that fuses art, live music, theatre and performing arts,” said El Gamal. A renowned Melbourne music, arts and community contributor, El-Gamal has two decades of experience in venue operations, event management and community program development as well as being a passionate artist herself. El Gamal, repurposed materials from her second venture - Our Friends Farm - Victoria’s largest licenced music venue located in Tallarook Victoria. First established by legendary venue operator ‘Bruzzy’ who owned the Provincial Hotel in Fitzroy, Tallarook Hotel and the Royal Hotel in Seymour before setting up this beautiful 221 acre property as a one of a kind entertainment and accommodation park in 1999. Rubix is now offering seated dining options with the show, or casual dining in the newly renovated front pizza bar- reimagined with beautiful timber bench seating and long timber slab tables, with the antique metal harrows inherited from the farm claiming the centrepiece above the bar. It has been a labour of love with El Gamal and her partner Jay Tiilikka on the tools, spending weekends renovating Rubix, and weekdays working on the farm. “I was given a commercial pizza oven, and that was the catalyst – from there we built the pizza bar, using materials from the farm to tie in both of my favourite places, giving Rubix a facelift with a rustic and cosy feel. We have designed a yummy pizza and snack menu to cater for all tastes which will also be available for delivery from Mr Yum soon,” she said. The show is an ideal outing for lovers of quirky performance, circus theatre, the eccentric at heart, those who love the unexpected. Guest will enjoy the unique and interactive performance, which is ideal for singles, couples group bookings, hens and bucks nights, corporate and group bookings and anyone after a unique post-covid arts extravaganza.

Not only will the reader feel validated and supported but encouraged in this heartfelt call to action written by clinical and perinatal psychologist, Dr Erin Bowe, who seamlessly delivers her passion and advocacy for post traumatic growth through these pages. Often, how you felt during a birth can be so easily dismissed and the birthing parents gaslighted. A healthy baby is all that matters, right? Not so. There’s room for serious reconsideration to what health means, particularly when it comes to birth trauma. Experiencing and recovering from birth trauma is hard but it doesn’t have to be all darkness and shadow, as this book shows. A delightfully unexpected book, you’ll come away feeling lighter having being offered wisdom, coupled with a stack of practical coping strategies. This book will show you the way to really discover self-compassion and the confidence to celebrate your growth. Where you will feel acknowledged and understood and your trauma can be accounted for. Plus, it offers tips for breastfeeding trauma, sourcing holistic support, vicarious trauma in partners as well as strategies to help with overwhelm and difficult emotions and thoughts.  It’s also the inspiration for parents to become the guardians of change for the next generation. “So much love drips from these pages. It's hard to imagine that a book about trauma could contain so much compassion, coupled with holistic strategies. Dr Erin Bowe takes apart the oft repeated phrase, "All that matters is a healthy baby". She turns around the language that would blame the birthing parent for the trauma they suffer, and gently guides them to a place of peace and/or restoration. She gives no arbitrary timelines for when healing may come. This is a beautiful book, dealing with an 'ugly' subject, written by a woman who cares deeply for those who suffer trauma in the perinatal period.” — Mars Lord “Here is an important voice in the scope of birth trauma. Dr Erin Bowe is speaking to all mothers. An inspiring tool for mamas to help reclaim power that was unfairly taken from them in the birth space and beyond. The teachings in this book are revolutionary.” — Amberley Harris   -ENDS-   More Than a Healthy Baby by Dr Erin Bowe ISBN: 9780648870678 ISBN-10: 0648870677 Language: English Number Of Pages: 272 Published: 8th December 2020 Publisher: the kind press Country of Publication: AU To request a copy of the book or to arrange a giveaway, please get in touch.

Hemp is a carbon fighting machine in this space and is known to be a heavy lifter in absorbing carbon. Hemp absorbs more carbon than many other plants.Hemp yarn has been used in rope for hundreds of years due to its strength. It’s a great textile for the slow fashion and sneaker industries, as it won’t stretch out of shape and is incredibly strong. Stronger yarn in fashion products means longer lasting pieces of clothing or shoes.Hemp is more than its stigma: it is a carbon fighting machine that is the perfect solution to a more sustainable shoe industry. The shoe industry typically uses heavily synthetic materials that are damaging to our planet and wallets. With shoes a necessity for work and play, BLAC Sneaker’s aim is to get more people moving in shoes that are better for the environment. More people in hemp sneakers or in fashionwear increases awareness of these issues.Gift someone the newest wave of natural fashion this Christmas - BLAC Sneakers are cool, comfortable and make an impact on your feet, the street and the planet.

COVID restrictions, job losses and closed borders have meant that thousands of celebrations have been postponed, cancelled or downscaled and it’s not just engaged couples who’ve had their heart broken. Often securing work 12-18 months in advance, professional wedding vendors have taken a massive hit to the number of current and future bookings for their specialist products and services. Adelaide born and bred, award-winning celebrant and founder of wedding blog Unbridely, Camille Abbott, knew that she needed to find a way to help her colleagues. Bringing together a small group of South Australian wedding vendors in a private Facebook group in May, they focused their energy on how they could adapt to the market needs.  Together, the group developed and refined a new concept in wedding planning – a rapid response enquiry tool called Unbridely Connect. Unbridely Connect allows engaged couples to search for reputable wedding suppliers by location, date, time and category and within 12 hours, receive an email with up to 3 talented, experienced and reliable vendors who all are available and eager to work with them - all without divulging their personal information to the suppliers, no more wedding spam! All Unbridely Suppliers have been hand-picked by Camille, have 2+ years wedding industry specific experience, business insurance and an ABN, and believe in the core values of inclusivity, clear communication, creative mindset and excellence in customer service. The beta launch of Unbridely Connect and the accompanying directory Unbridely Suppliers (beta in South Australia with scope to grow nation-wide) is Friday 4 December 2020: www.unbridelyconnect.com.au www.unbridelysuppliers.com.au 2021 interiors predictions with Justine Wilson 2020-12-02T00:43:44Z 2021-interiors-predictions-with-justine-wilson 2021 is set to be all about and earthy and raw interiors. Justine Wilson, leading property stylist and founder of Vault Interiors predicts that interior styling in 2021 will come back to nature. Whether it's broken stone to natural elements of rattan and cane and the use of recycled materials, next year it all about embracing raw-looking designs with crisp white interiors. Justine Wilson says, “There has been a major shift over the past 12 months to getting back to nature, looking for ways to be more sustainable and generally becoming more minimalistic when it comes to styling. For many that feeling of nature combined with neutrals creates a sense of calm and prosperity, at least it does for me!” Justine’s top five interior trends for 2021 include: 1. Broken stone/crazy paving: This will be a big trend, it's where slabs of stone like terrazzo, terracotta, marble, or slate tiles are broken into random pieces and laid in a haphazard way creating a natural-looking pattern. It’s an earthy look that’s was popular in the 80’s, and that I see it used in modern boho-style homes, hotels, and retail spaces. 2. Natural elements: Rattan, cane and woven materials will continue to dominate, especially in furniture and lighting design. These raw-looking natural designs will be paired with crisp white interiors. 3. Rendering interior walls: The use of a sand bag creates a rustic effect similar to what you would find in the Greek islands or externally like on a Spanish revival style home. Think white or beige as the colour of choice, but this will be applied inside in main living areas and bathrooms. 4. Curves and arches: These will be very popular, especially in furniture and joinery design. New build homes will have arched doorways and windows as key design features. 5. Recycled timber beams: These will be big, I see these being integrated in ceiling design to create the look of a rustic warehouse or farmhouse style but paired with modern colours and joinery. They will also feature in external architectural elements such as pergolas or outdoor breezeways. “When it comes to interior accents colours, these will remain inspired from natural elements and earthy tones so think olive tones, rust tones, soft blues and beige and sand tones,” adds Justine.
