The Australian Horizons Foundation project sees a group of entertainers performing in four communities in Barham, Blighty, Moulamein and Menindee to provide a much needed night out in these towns where residents are enduring hard times because of the water issue relating to the Murray Darling basin.Bidding wars, exotic overseas studios and years of international touring established Taxiride as one of Australia's biggest musical exports, with Jason Singh and his impressive set of pipes and sky scraping pop sensibility at the helm. Garnering two consecutive Number One platinum selling albums, nine Top 40 hit singles including the Top 5 hits “Get Set”, “Everywhere You Go”, and the most played song on Australian radio in 2002, “Creepin’ Up Slowly”, Taxiride were at the top of the Australian music industry. Twenty years later, including a hiatus, a reunion and an established solo career, it's time to join Jason Singh as he continues the ‘ride’ in a series of shows taking you on a journey beyond the hits. "I'm proud of everything I've done," Jason says, "Taxiride is where it all started for me. I’m excited about playing these shows and getting to play a collection of songs I've rarely, some never, played live.” The HITS BITS & BEYOND show sees Jason perform all the iconic hits along with material from deep within the Taxiride catalogue - including "Skin", "Saffron" and "World’s Away". With a studio album, a covers album and a string of singles including two dance club hits, Jason will also feature a variety of his solo material, which has seen him tour extensively with a long list of accomplished artists including Mariah Carey, Rick Astley, HANSON and John Farnham. Stories, influences and insights from over 20 years of touring; you can be sure, as Jason Singh plays Taxiride, that each show is set to be a different ride. www.jasonsingh.com.au www.jasonsingh.com.au/tour Facebook: @jasonsinghtaxiride Instagram: @jasonsinghtaxiride MEDIA CONTACT: Erin Jameson+61 419 323 663 | erin(at)jamesonandco(dot)com LISTINGS INFO: Friday, April 16Jason Singh plays Taxiride Sooki Lounge - 18+1648 Burwood Hwy, Belgrave, VIC03 9754 7567Tix: $30.00+bf OztixDoors: 7.30pmShow starts: 8pm Friday, April 23Jason Singh plays Taxiride Railway Hotel Murchison- 18+4910 Goulburn Valley Hwy, Murchison East, VIC03 5826 2552Tix: $30.00+bf Eventbrite Doors: 7.30pmShow starts: 8pm Saturday, May 1Jason Singh plays Taxiride Eat Street Northshore (All ages)221D MacArthur Ave, Hamilton, QLD0428 485 242Tix: $5.00 (12+; free entry for children under 12y.o.); $15 Family of four 12+) www.eatstreetnorthshore.com.au Doors: 4.00pm Friday, May 7Beef It Up - Jason Singh + Justin Fleming + Huc Richards + Tim MayKoondrook Barham Football ClubLot 33 Gonn St, Barham, NSW03 5453 2324 (Phone bookings only) Saturday, May 8Beef It Up - Jason Singh + Justin Fleming + Huc Richards + Tim MayBlighty Hotel2731 Riverina Hwy, Blighty, NSW Lot 33 Gonn St, Barham, NSW03 5882 6225 (Phone bookings only) Friday, May 21Beef It Up - Jason Singh + Justin Fleming + Huc Richards + Tim MayMoulamein Bowling ClubEndeavour Drive, Moulamein, NSW03 5887 5207 (Phone bookings only) Saturday, May 22Beef It Up - Jason Singh + Justin Fleming + Huc Richards + Tim MaySunset Strip, Menindee Friday, June 4Jason Singh plays Taxiride Barwon Club509 Mooroobool St, Geelong, VIC (18+)03 5221 4584Tix: $28.60 thru OztixDoors: 8.00pmShow starts: 8.30pm Friday, June 111927 + Jason Singh plays Taxiride & beyondUlumbarra Theatre10-20 Gaol Road, Bendigo, VIC (18+)03 Tix: $65.00 Ulumbarra Theatre Box OfficeDoors: 7.00pmShow starts: 7.30pm Saturday, June 121927 + Jason Singh plays Taxiride and beyondThe Palms at Crown8 Whiteman Street, Southbank (18+)08 8338 1100Tix $65+bf TicketmasterDoors: 7.00pmShow starts: 7.30pm Friday, June 18Jason Singh plays Taxiride Macksville Ex-Services Club (18+)16 Cooper St, Macksville, NSW02 6568 1344Tix: $26.20 TryBookingDoors: 8.00pmShow starts 8.30pmShow starts 7.30pm Saturday, June 19Jason Singh plays Taxiride Laurieton United Services Club (18+)2 Seymour St, Laurieton, NSW02 6559 9110Tix: $32.50 TicketsearchDoors: 7.00pmShow starts: 7.30pm Friday, June 25Jason Singh plays Taxiride Jindalee Hotel(18+)Sinnamon Road, Jindalee, QLD07 3051 7607Tix: On sale soonDoors: TBAShow starts: TBA Saturday, June 26Jason Singh plays Taxiride Bribie Island Hotel (18+)29 Sylvan Beach Esplanade, Bellara, QLD07 3051 7601Tix: On sale soonDoors: TBAShow starts: TBA Thursday, July 1Jason Singh plays Taxiride The Vanguard (18+)42 King St, Newtown, NSWTix: GA $29.27; Dinner & Show $66.20 MoshtixDoors: 6.00pmShow starts: 7.30pm Friday, July 2Jason Singh plays Taxiride Smiths Alternative(18+)76 Alinga St, Canberra, ACT02 6257 1225Tix: On sale soonDoors: TBAShow starts: TBA Saturday, July 3Jason Singh plays Taxiride Heritage Hotel(18+)240 Princes Hwy, Bulli, NSW02 4284 5884Tix: On sale soonDoors: TBAShow starts: TBA Friday, July 9Jason Singh plays Taxiride Kingston Arts Centre (18+?)979 Nepean Hwy, Moorabbin, VIC03 9556 4440Tix: $28.80 KingstonArtsDoors: 7.00pmShow starts: 7.30pm Jason Singh plays Taxiride Memo Music Hall (18+)88 Acland St, St Kilda, VIC03 9534 3556Tix: $18 (standing); $25 (A-Reserve)’ $35 (Premium) TryBookingDoors: 7.30pmShow starts: 8.40pm Tegan Martin to launch Rochway’s new Beauty Sleep – An Australian first! 2021-04-19T00:40:45Z tegan-martin-to-launch-rochways-new-beauty-sleep-an-australian-first Rochway are thrilled to announce that they have partnered with former Miss Universe Australia, model and presenter, Tegan Martin to launch Rochway’s Beauty Sleep, the first natural sleep tonic in the Australian market that combines powerful natural sleep aids with innovative probiotics. Available in a delicious natural berry liquid, Beauty Sleep is formulated with sour cherry and calming herbs valerian and hops to encourage quality sleep to reset the body and mind. The unique formula also includes marine collagen and probiotics fermented with Rochway’s exclusive BioRestore™ fermentation process for optimal gut health and whole-body wellbeing. Tegan Martin, Rochway Beauty Sleep Ambassador, someone who knows how important it is to get quality zzz’s to reset the body and mind says, “There have been times in my life where I was having too much sleep, alongside phases where I just wasn’t getting enough. It’s been a personal work in progress learning about how to get to the source of what is influencing my sleep patterns. From improving my physical health to learning how to calm my racing mind at night, sleep will always be a major priority for me. I started trialing the Rochway Beauty Sleep a few months ago, and have finally found something that I can take every night to naturally fall into a deep restful sleep and wake up feeling refreshed each morning.” According to The Sleep Health Foundation, a recent study showed that over half (59.4%) of respondents overall reported experiencing at least one sleep symptom three or more times a week which included trouble falling asleep, staying asleep or waking too early and not being able to get back to sleep. In addition, significantly more female respondents than male respondents reported “often or always” worrying about getting a good night’s sleep (31% vs 21%) and being overwhelmed by thoughts when trying to sleep (35% vs 25%). Beauty Sleep is packed with essential goodness to naturally aid sleep and reinforce the body’s daily rhythms of sleep. It is well reported that while slumbering, the body is busy repairing cells and releasing hormones that support skin regeneration and rehydration. The three key ingredients in Rochway’s Beauty Sleep to enhance this include: 1. Marine Collagen to regenerate and rehydrate the skin. It is also responsible for maintaining skin elasticity, skin texture and minimising the appearance of wrinkles and signs of ageing. Plus, it supports the skin to keep it firm, plump and glowing. 2. Sour Cherry is rich in the vital sleep hormone melatonin, a central part of the body’s sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin promotes healthy sleep and helps to orient the circadian rhythm. It also contains proanthocyanidins that can help the body convert the amino acid tryptophan into serotonin. 3. Calming herbs Valerian and Hops top off the Beauty Sleep formula, promoting relaxation and calmness to promote a natural slumber. Key facts about Rochway Beauty Sleep: Supports good gut bacteria Marine collagen & BioRestore™ process increases absorbance of collagen Sour cherry and calming herbs support natural and good sleep Australian made 99% sugar-free Naturally flavoured Free from gluten and dairy Taken one to two hours before bedtime, the new Beauty Sleep product completes the brand's journey to wellness ethos, by now providing Australians with 24-hour gut health solutions across the range. Rochway’s new Beauty Sleep probiotic liquid is available for pre-order now at rochway.com.au at an RRP of $49.99. The official launch will be in June 2021. About Rochway’s BioRestore™ Process: Beauty Sleep is made using Rochway’s unique BioRestore™ fermentation process. Papaya fruit and leaf undergo five stages of fermentation using six multi-strain, gut-loving probiotics, resulting in a more bio-available (easily absorbed) and bio-active complex to help beautify from the inside out and support whole body wellbeing. The six strains of probiotics used in the BioRestore™ fermentation process include Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Bifidobacterium lactis, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae (boulardii). www.rochway.com.au Venero Armanno ventures into horror and supernatural for his 11th compelling novel 2021-04-19T00:32:48Z venero-armanno-ventures-into-horror-and-supernatural-for-his-11th-compelling-novel Venero Armanno’s long-awaited 11th novel has only just been released and is already making an impression with fans of dark fantasy, thrillers, crime, witchcraft and the supernatural. Like most of Brisbane-based Armanno’s novels, The Crying Forest (IFWG, 334pp), took inspiration from the author’s real life and involved research into new areas his previous books haven’t ventured.The author of ten critically acclaimed novels, Venero Armanno’s The Volcano, won Best Fiction Book of the Year in the Queensland Premier’s Literary Award with Firehead also shortlisted for this same award. His works have been published in the US, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, Israel and South Korea.In this dark, twisted and terrifying novel, The Crying Forest introduces us to characters who are much more than they appear on the surface, and delves deeply into the realms of Italian witches and werewolves.“The Crying Forest is a literary supernatural tale in that characters’ emotions, their relationships and personal baggage really drive the plot — as well as a lot of real history,” said Armanno.“It’s my first foray into the supernatural with original inspiration coming from a very spooky house my pregnant wife and I moved to, which is in an isolated area next to a large state forest frequented by wild packs of dogs that howled at night and waged battles with a proliferation of introduced deer.“It all just seemed to cry out for a novel about the supernatural, but being outside of my usual genres, it’s taken a lot of time and research to bring to fruition,” he added.The new book is set in the mid-1970s with Agata Rosso, a once-mighty yet now prematurely aged Italian witch, believing that the special gifts in a young girl named Lía Munro can restore youth and vitality both to herself and her bedridden husband. She sets a deadly plan in motion to capture and use Lía, who is starting to understand things about herself that she could never have imagined: she can see things others can't, she can travel in the spirit realm, and finally realises the extent of her power. Picking up on the enormity of that power, Agata Rosso realises that somewhere close by, finally, is the one person who can restore her own youth and energy and raise her beloved husband Giancarlo back to life. But will Lía have enough power to protect herself, plus her father she loves so much?Onto the scene comes a wealthy criminal, Karl Haberman, himself wracked by terminal illness. Agata and Karl join forces in a desperate search to find young Lía. The terrible ceremony that’s planned could save them all, but can Lía find the strength and courage to conquer an evil so ancient it reaches back to Italian folklore?The Crying Forest is published by IFWG Publishing and available in paperback (334 pages) RRP $AU35.95, eBook RRP $AU5.99 and audio book RRP $AU39.95 from all good online bookstores including Amazon, Booktopia, Audible and Book Depository. https://www.amazon.com/Venero-Armanno/e/B001JP7O2Whttps://www.audible.com.au/search?searchAuthor=Venero+Armannohttps://www.booktopia.com.au/search.ep?keywords=venero+Armanno&productType=917504https://www.bookdepository.com/author/Venero-Armannohttps://veneroarmanno.com/the-latest-book/ (with trailer)endsAbout Venero Armanno:Associate Professor Venero (Veny) Armanno was born in Brisbane of parents who migrated from Sicily to Australia in the early 1950s. Veny came to books at the age of three impressing his parents by reading articles to them from the local newspapers. Although there was no history of literature of any kind in the house, Veny read everything he could find, including comics, then taking trips on the old tram system to the city library where he was a regular, and very young, visitor. At just 18 while studying (failing, really) Law and Psychology at university, and working as a bricklayer's labourer on weekends, Veny completed his first novel, called Darker Than Night. Veny set his mind on becoming a published writer-eventually being shortlisted for the Australian-Vogel Literary Award in 1984, then producing many unpublished ("and definitely unpublishable," he says) early novels. Unsurprisingly, Veny teaches creative writing at the University of Queensland and is a trained screenwriter.https://veneroarmanno.com/the-latest-book/ Reviews:“With The Crying Forest, Venero Armanno delivers a tale of murder and magic, of dark desires and the even darker cost of their fulfilment. Swift-moving, brutal, with unexpected moments of tenderness, it compels the reader’s attention all the way to the end, then lingers in the mind afterward.” John Langan, author of Children of the Fang and Other Genealogies“We feel privileged to have Armanno’s wonderful novel in our catalogue,” said IFWG’s Managing Director, Gerry Huntman, “as he has an amazing track record internationally with his fiction, including winning the Queensland Premier’s Award. Aside from his credentials, The Crying Forest is an outstanding mix of dark supernatural fiction with crime and thriller elements, and paints a vivid setting in Brisbane and surrounding areas, overlaid with European witchcraft. We view this as one of our flagship titles for 2020/21, and certainly in the dark fiction field.”“The Crying Forest is a compelling folk horror story that combines elements of crime fiction and the occult to create a unique vision of a world teeming with ghosts, shapeshifters, and a profoundly human evil. The writing is crisp the authorial voice assured, and the horror is real and gritty.” Gary McMahon, author of Glorious Beasts, and the Thomas Usher and Concrete Grove seriesEnquiries:To request a book to review (please nominate paperback or eBook) or to request in interview with Veny, please contact Wendy McWilliams, WMC Public Relations, Tel: 03 9803 2588 / 0421 364 665 / wendy@wmcpr.com.auIf you would like to run a giveaway, require any hi-res photos or would like to publish a 5,000-word extract, please also contact Wendy.A video of Veny introducing his new book can be viewed from here:https://www.facebook.com/veneroarmanno/videos/461616934963717 How to choose and style crystals for every room of the house 2021-04-12T01:44:36Z how-to-choose-and-style-crystals-for-every-room-of-the-house Justine Wilson, author of the Crystal Connection, shares her tips on how to incorporate crystals into the different zones of the home. A crystal collector herself, with over 100 displayed throughout her own home, Justine encourages those just starting out with crystals to select a piece that speaks to them as the best rule of thumb. “Crystals can be used in any space that looks pretty and feels right to you, there is no right or wrong way to work with crystals. They are as beautiful as they are mythical, so just enjoy bringing them into your home, and thus you will get a feel for the visual and spiritual impact they can have on your space,” says Justine. Entryway: A nice stone to have at your property’s entryway is rose quartz. You will often see this at top end day spas as it promotes a sense of self-love, relaxation and a peaceful experience. Having a stone like this will also signify to your family and guests that it is a welcoming, loving environment to enter. Study: Amethyst is a wonderful stone to have in creative spaces such as studies, workshops, or even mediation zones, as it can promote mental clarity and assist in opening up and promoting your spirituality. It can help stimulate new ideas and inspiration so it’s wonderful for any space when you need to focus, work or create. Another great one for a work zone is citrine, as it can assist in attracting wealth and abundance - so a wonderful stone for any business endeavours. Living Rooms: Agate is a great stone to have in living areas as it is very versatile to incorporate, you could have an agate artwork, agate bookends on a bookshelf, or agate coasters. Agate also comes in many different colorways so it will work with any interior scheme. Agate is also a grounding stone that promotes maturity and stability, and I think it’s nice to feel grounded in your main living space. Kitchen/Dining: Clear quartz is a great stone for these zones as it is a master stone in many ways. Clear quartz can be programmed for any intention and is a nice one for a kitchen or dining area because often you are also creating something from scratch, so it will work alongside your mood and energy. Quartz can change the feel of the space depending on the vibe and meals you are creating, i.e you could be having a fun night with friends, ask the stone to assist in creating joy and happiness. If it is a serious family dinner, ask the stone to guide you with clarity on the right words to say to your family members to resolve the issues. Bedroom: A great stone for your bedroom is labradorite as it is a protective stone that can restore energy, promote rest and help to recharge you. It can also assist in revealing your true emotions, which we all need sometimes in order to deal with things or to take the right path of action. Any stone (blues and black stones are great for this) that are protective will also work in bedrooms. About the Crystal Connection: The Crystal Connection, a 200-page coffee table book is a sensory and emotive visual guidebook that demonstrates a profound love for crystals and is not only inspiring but will connect the reader even more with their own sacred home space. The Crystal Connection is available now at an RRP $45.00. Currently $34.40 from amazon.com.au and booktopia.com.au.

The brand story, commitment, and ethos inspires shoppers with better choices available to her. Given that Mums are in charge of 72% of household discretionary spend, this award acknowledges their voice and celebrates these brands.” The impressive line-up of 27 brands shortlisted included popular companies such as, Nespresso for their #RecyclingResolution campaign with Planet Ark which encourages Australians to keep recycling a priority in 2021; Household favourites like Bakers Delight who have been committed to supporting the Breast Cancer Network Australia for over 20 years to raise funds and assist with their My Journey Kits and daily operations; and Vetta for their Rural Aid Pasta initiative. Overwhelmingly, Happy Hair Brush won the Overall Most Loved Purpose Driven Company for their mission to change the emotional and mental wellbeing of people everywhere one head, and one heart at a time. Modibodi, the sustainable and ethically made health apparel range driving the ‘Give A Pair’ charitable programme took out Brand to Watch. And Aussie made, hospital-developed Mater Baby Products that supports Mater Little Miracles to raise funds for life-saving research and care to ensure seriously ill and premature babies can have the best possible start to life was awarded Purpose-driven Brand Most Likely to Purchase. (see full list here) Kristy Chong, Founder and CEO, Modibodi said “We are truly thankful that mum shoppers across Australia have recognised Modibodi as the Brand to Watch (winner) and as a brand they would mostly likely purchase (finalist). It shows how important purpose is in their lives, and how our vision to have "limitless positive impact" on humanity and our planet is significant.” Jen Harwood, Founder and CEO, Happy Hair Brush said, “our mission is to make one million people happy with our best ever hairbrush. This amazing result tells me that what we are doing is working and we are getting closer every day to realising this.” Through this process, Mumpower was able to determine that 3 in 10 Mums have no idea about the purpose driven commitment of most well-known brands, yet upon discovering it, 68% of them are now more likely to purchase as a result of their commitment to positively impacting the wider community. Ultimately, Mums will chose brands that authentically commit to a cause and educate the consumer effectively, because it enables her to make altruistic buying decisions. Popular influencer and mum of 2, Nadine Muller (@nadinemuller) says “People love helping people. Knowing that their purchase is essentially investing into something BIGGER - feels much better than supporting brands and business that are driven purely by profit.” For over 10 years, Mumpower has kept Mums at the centre of the conversation to become Australia’s leading agency, dedicated to shaping the way brands speak with Mums Shoppers. They do this on behalf of Mum-centric brands, by involving their vast network of Mums in the entire brand dialogue, from addressing product preferences, through to understanding and respecting how she wants to be marketed. This way it’s today’s Mums, who largely hold the cards to household spending, that shape tomorrow’s brands.

The way they laugh together is so wonderful, you can’t help bursting into laughter... I love the opportunity to hear their voices... I love hanging out with them...Their capacity to find joy in things… is wonderful.” Mia Freedman on Mama Mia Out Loud: “The happiest thing I’ve listened to in a long time and it really shouldn’t be... Their laughter is like balm for my soul. I can’t even explain how much I love listening to it.” On Mothers Day Eve - Saturday, May 8 - Too Peas In A Podcast will finally make its way to the Yarraville Laughs stage, with Kate and Mandy giving their honest, down-to-earth take on life’s trials and tribulations that have earned tham an international following. It’s been a full year since Yarraville Laughs - like every other venue and promoter in the country - had to reluctantly announce the cancellation of its shows which were close to being sold out. One of those shows was to be the live debut for two of the funniest mums on the planet, Kate Jones and Mandy Hose, who were to record their breakout podcast, Too Peas In A Podcast.Fast forward to 2021 and these hilarious women were Victoria’s nominee for Australian Of The Year, have signed a book deal with Penguin Books and tripled their audience throughout the pandemic lockdowns - uplifting their audience with their irreverent banter about raising their respective additional-needs children, both mothers of twins! They also managed to squeeze in a sold out show at Sydney’s Comedy Store.The audience will be taken on an emotional rollercoaster of tears one minute, laughter the next (and often at the same time), as the two chat about parenting twins with disabilities and additional needs. While indeed, the topics they delve are not necessarily laughing matters, Mandy and Kate’s natural ability to cut through the crap and let the audience see the funny side of their emotional ups and downs is contagious.As challenging as 2020 was for so many, Too Peas In A Podcast at Yarraville Laughs promises hilarious anecdotes which are totally relatable, such as drinking gin out of teacups in the afternoons, accidental swearing during remote learning classes, playing remote tricks on teachers - all while wearing pyjamas day in, day out.As Kate says, ‘I think we provided a bit of a lifeline - not only for ourselves, but for our listeners.‘During the pandemic, no one was talking about educating kids remotely with additional needs - only us.’And for the grammar geeks amongst us, it’s well worth a listen to hear their explanation of the almost unforgivable spelling in the title, Too Peas in a Podcast.This is a rare opportunity to be part of the recording of one of this country’s true podcast sensations, so come and see them live, find out what is so a-pea-ling!Listen to Too Peas In A Podcast HERELISTINGS INFO:Too Peas In A PodcastSaturday, May 8The Yarraville Club, 135 Stephen St Yarraville.18+ EventBookings: www.yarravillelive.comPh: 03 9689 6033Doors open: 6pm (dining); 7.15pm (show only)Show time: 8.00pmTicket Options:Supper & Show $99.00 + bfReserved Seating Section A $59.00 +bfReserved Seating Section B $49.00 +bfGeneral Admission (standing) $39.00 +bf MEDIA CONTACT:Jameson & CoErin Jameson - 0419 323 663 / erin(at)jamesonandco(dot)com Easter Styling Tips with Justine Wilson 2021-03-17T01:40:49Z easter-styling-tips-with-justine-wilson According to Justine Wilson, leading Property Stylist and Founder of Vault Interiors, holiday decorating is not just for Halloween or Christmas! Justine believes Easter is just as important when it comes to styling the home for special occasions and one that has been overlooked in the past. Easter 2021 is all about pastels, florals, bunnies and eggs. “These icons are all associated with the holiday season, so why not enjoy bringing them into your home and creating whimsical displays. You can style up a storm, and easily create a magical experience to share the holiday with friends and family,” said Justine. Justine’s top five tips for styling your home this Easter include: 1. Faux florals: These are inexpensive and can be found at any hobby store, variety store or dollar shop. For Easter, I like to select soft blues, pinks, and whites so the display feels like a spring day! These have a big impact and are easy to install, I use faux florals on my tablescape, on my stairwell, and as a filler for any other key vignettes. They often bend easily and require no fastening other than wrapping or manipulating them into the shape you require. 2. Bunnies: It wouldn’t be Easter without some cute bunnies, these figurines can be sourced at target, Kmart, homewares shops, or at places like TK Maxx. I have all different sizes and shapes, from grass look ones, to pretty glass ones, and simple ceramic ones. They create pretty displays and can be styled on any surface. 3. Eggs: From glass eggs, grass eggs, foam eggs and even wooden, or my favourite – chocolate eggs! It doesn’t matter which you choose, however by integrating some eggs it's an easy and fun way to bring the Easter look to life. They can be used for entryway vignettes, kitchen clusters or in main tablescapes to really signify and celebrate the holiday. 4. Don’t focus on one area: With seasonal styling is best to have little pops of décor all over the home for a magical experience for your family and your guests. I like to have an Easter wreath on the door, something on the stairs, some décor in the kitchen as well as the living and dining rooms. 5. Use pretty food as part of your display! This could be sugared almonds, candies, easter eggs, cupcakes or cakes or really any tasty treat that suits the theme. Decorating with food is a wonderful way to jazz up your table and of course delight your guests. “Remember, any key entertaining areas of your home are great places to decorate. If you continue the styling theme throughout your home - you will create more of an event-like experience!” adds Justine.

With Ajak’s dedication as a passionate activist for refugees in Australia, the album is aptly titled Let Me Grow My Wings, an eclectic collection of twelve self-penned songs which reflect her observations, influences and connections since moving to Australia in the late nineties.Performed in English, Arabic and Ajak’s native language, Dinka, the record sees Ajak honouring the traditions of her homeland, yet defying stereotype in what is best described as “modern South Sudanese rock” (credit to award-winning composer, songwriter and producer Jan Skubiszewski who mixed and performed additional instruments on five songs).Backed by a pulsing rhythm section, piano and guitars feature throughout, with rhythmic rock gems like the opener, Love Not Bitterness (sung in English, urging people of the world to choose love over hate), Cool (Track 3 - Ajak’s message to young people, sung in English and Dinka, telling them they don’t need to act the fool to be cool, Life Is A Mystery - sung entirely in Dinka - in which Ajak questions why she ended up in Australia whilst so many of her people lost their lives (the final track on the album), and the album title track (Track 2) - one that Ajak says she feels closest to and is the first single off this album - in which she expresses (also in English and Dinka) her desire for the people in her community to have the same opportunities and be treated equally in Australia.Then there are emotive ballads such as In Our Hearts (Track 7), featuring the Yogyakarta State University College of Music Choir, with a poignant message (in English and Dinka) that we are all the same, no matter what colour or race and Don’t Make The Woman Cry, Ajak’s dedication to women, urging suppressors to choose kindness over harm.Says Ajak, 'My experiences in Australia inform my songs and my music. Music is a universal language – maybe one day we will forget our differences and hold the hands of one another. ‘This album is a collection of those hopes and dreams for an integrated future where we are one and can share and be accepted for what my community has to offer.’Ajak also explains, “It has taken years to complete this album, as I’ve kept getting distracted with my work as a community promoter and educating people at the Migrant Resource Centre, which takes me to many areas of Melbourne’.She hopes that by taking time out to concentrate on her own art and completing this album, she will inspire people with her music and lyrics to create a more positive environment for themselves.Let Me Grow My Wings will be available worldwide on CD and download, on all major online stores from April 23, 2021.In addition to Ajak’s band, the album’s impressive credits include Jan Skubiszewski, Nicky Bomba, Simon Lewis, Boris Conley, Chris Basile (prominent on guitar throughout), Kate Madden, Robin Mai and Aaron Wilson (who has also directed her forthcoming music video for the title track). Filmmaker and Ajak’s longtime friend, Margot McDonald executive produced the project. The songs were recorded at Nicky Bomba Studios, Jan Skubiszewski’s Red Moon Studios, and Simon Lewis’ Panorama Studios, where it was also mastered.In her live shows, Ajak, with her stunning, distinctive vocals fronts a four-piece rock band consisting of lead guitarist Kumar Shome, Matt Erickson on bass and Kofi Kundpe on drums/percussion, occasionally joined by special guest musicians. As well as being ambassador for the Melbourne International Arts Festival, she has performed at major festivals around Australia and internationally, including Mofo, WOMADelaide, Panama Festival and the Tamar Valley, Port Fairy and Woodford Folk Festivals.Ajak is also a popular broadcaster in Melbourne, as host of a weekly show on one of the city’s much-loved community radio stations, PBS. Airing each Monday between 1300 and 1500 AEST, the show - called Come Together - focuses on music that promotes love and acceptance and on bringing her community into the radio realm.The single, Let Me Grow My Wings will be released on Monday, March 22, ahead of the album launch on Friday, April 23. Ajak will be joined onstage by her live band plus special guests and supports to be announced.

With an electric atmosphere and heightened praise and worship, nearly 400 Gold Coasters turned out for the first night of the conference. Coupled with the great atmosphere of the service was a summer-themed outdoor set up with food trucks and a jumping castle for kids. The night was topped off with two sessions of leadership-driven messages by Ps. Joel A'Bell from Hillsong Church.     Ps. Joel Cave, who senior pastors the Gold Coast Church said "We are believing God to start something significant on the Gold Coast in 2015, with 3 Spirit filled Summer nights to Kickstart your year! Step into this new Season with us, as Glow Church launches the very first Kickstart Conference 2015 with 3 incredible Guest Speakers, invited to speak directly into this new season ahead.  Our prayer is to see the spirit level of the Kingdom rise, that we would shine so bright that the world around us can’t help but pay attention – like a city on a hill that cannot be hidden."The second night of the sold out conference begins tonight at 6:30pm with two guest speakers remaining with Ps.Shaun Nepstad who with his wife Dianna are the founding and lead pastors of The Fellowship Church in Antioch California. And Ps Wayne Alcorn who with wife Lyn have been the Senior Pastors of Hope Centre since August 2000. Hope Centre is a growing multi-campus, multi-cultural church in Queensland’s south-east corner and Ps. Wayne is the President of the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement to which Glow Church is apart of.  It goes without saying, if the first year completely sold out, then registrations will be set to move fast for conference in 2016.

Property settlements and a fair distribution of assets are prime concerns for many and Loukas Law excels in equitable solutions that aid clients in putting their life back together after a divorce to meet their future needs. There’s a wealth of misconceptions about property settlements. The goal of a property settlement is to ensure that the contributions of both parties is acknowledged and the pool of assets are properly cataloged. It also includes tallying all of a couple’s assets, debts, liabilities, and needs to support children when applicable. The property settlement lawyers Perth work to assess the financial and non-financial contributions of both parties before and during the relationship. In many instances, a fair distribution can be arrived at through compromise and negotiation. It can be an uncomfortable process. However, the result is typically better for everyone involved and places less of a financial and emotional drain on a family and its resources. There are times when even a couple that’s agreeable to an amicable dissolution of their marriage can’t come to an agreement. When all other methods fail, the litigation lawyers Perth have the specialised knowledge and experience to fight for a client’s rights. Loukas Law is invested in the outcome of every client’s case. The firm doesn’t allow individuals to be bullied or intimidated and has an outstanding litigation track record. It’s a common misconception that all property and assets are divided neatly down the middle in a divorce. There are many factors the court will consider when litigation is involved and each situation is different. There will be separate property that belongs exclusively to each party, along with joint assets that will be determined by the court. Rated by clients as one of the “best family lawyers Perth,” Loukas Law specialises in all aspects of family law and is the first to work with a network of family counsellors to support the emotional and psychological well-being of clients and their family when the potential for violence exists. Loukas Law works to smooth the pathway for each client whether that’s accomplished through negotiation or litigation. About Loukas Law We care about seeing you come through your family law process in your best personal shape, so that you can build your best future. We are dedicated to look after you from every perspective, legally, financially and personally. We are your support, counsel and advocate. Our strength will be your solution.
