My husband and I just redid our bathroom and added a few new touches here and there. The one that I pushed the hardest for was a heated towel rack. I know it seems like a bit of an unnecessary luxury but we live in the bush and it gets very cold in the bathroom in winter. A warm towel straight out of the shower could make all the difference, I think. The company that installed the heated towel rack was called Hunt Heating, and they do all sorts of heating appliances for the home.
They had a whole heap to choose from and weren’t nearly as expensive as you’d imagine. My husband kept telling me we didn’t need one, but he’s used it every single day since we had it installed.
Working in a shipping yard can be a dangerous game at times. It’s a fast paced job with lots of heavy equipment and machinery, everything happening all at once. If you’re not careful, a serious injury could be right around the corner. I like to pride myself on being a safe kind of guy, and all the equipment we use is well maintained and of the highest quality. Take the forklifts. Our forklifts are all supplied by NTP, a fantastic company we’ve used for years. Their attention to detail and workmanship is why we always will. If you’re in the forklift game, you’d do well to give NTP Forklifts a call.
My old man was a mechanic his whole life, and everything I know about cars, I learned from him. I didn’t exactly follow in his footsteps and become a mechanic, but I do tinker on cars from time to time as more of a hobby. Just recently I bought a new car hoist as I get a bad back crawling under the car on the ground. The car hoists from Tufflift were the best by far, and these guys really know their stuff. No nonsense, superior gear that’s guaranteed to get the job done. Beauty. I fit the car hoists into my garage and they work sensationally. Cheers, Tufflift.
Insurance of any description can sometimes seem like more trouble than it’s worth. With so many different policies and premiums and clauses and all those sorts of things, it can be a nightmare to navigate on your own, and if you never make a claim it can seem like a waste of time. But insurance is important, be it for your car, home or health. I’ve recently opened my own practice and immediately I applied for professional indemnity insurance through BRIC. BRIC act as a broker, and they were able to navigate the tricky path that is insurance for me, finding the best policy for my practice. They provide professional indemnity insurance Australia wide and if you’re a professional of any kind, it’ll pay to speak to BRIC.
My business partner recently built a new home from the ground up and finished up by landscaping the front yard. It’s a beautiful property, with a sandstone driveway winding up the front yard to the Victorian-style home. The finishing touch was an electric gate at the front fence. Smooth, sleek and operates perfectly, so much so that it convinced me to get one for my own property.
I asked him who installed it and he said it was a secret. I hassled him for days before he finally gave in. Haven Fencing. Well, I gave Haven Fencing a call that very same day and they’re coming out soon to measure everything up. Here’s hoping it looks as good as my partner’s! I’m sure it will – he swears these guys do the best electric gate Melbourne wide.
My husband and I have recently bought our first home and we’ve just started redecorating inside. The first thing we’re going to do is replace all the curtains. The both of us have always preferred blinds over curtains as they’re much more practical and modern looking, so we did a bit of research and stumbled upon Blockout Blinds. They seemed to be getting positive reviews everywhere we looked, so that was a great start. It wasn’t hard to see why. Their range of blinds Melbourne wide was unreal – roller blinds, roman blinds, venetian, timber, outdoor and heaps more. We ended up getting roller blinds in the lounge room and bedrooms, timber venetians for the kitchen, and then a few café blinds for the entertaining area out the backyard. The guys that came out were very professional, and got the job done in record time. Highly recommended.
We’re a nation of coffee lovers, and I’m no exception. I’ll have at least 2 – 3 cups of coffee per day, and most of the time that will be at home. I buy beans and brew it at home myself – always tastes better when you make it yourself. A friend of mine put me onto Cisco’s Coffee a few years back and I’ve never gone anywhere else since. Their range of coffee is sourced from all over the world and then roasted right here in Melbourne. Cuban, Ethiopian, organic, fair trade – you name it, they’ve got it. As far as I can tell, they’re the finest coffee roasters Australia has, and I can’t see myself buying it from anywhere else ever again.
If there’s one item of clothing which you can be fussy with, it should be shoes. When you purchase shoes, you want to get a few years out of them at least. They’ve got to be comfortable no matter how often you wear them, but they’ve also got to look the part.
So many times in the past I’ve bought shoes I thought seemed alright, but the quality was poor and that showed pretty quickly. After sorting through the trash, I’ve found the treasure. Novo Shoes. They cover all the above, and yet their prices are very competitive. They stock their shoes Australia wide, too, so you’ll find a pair no matter where you are. Take my word for it.
Up until now, I’d never really liked the idea of showrooms. I’d always preferred sourcing my own options and ideas and coming up with something original, as opposed to finding it all from the one place. Happy to say I’ve changed my mind. My cousin recently finished building her new home with her fiancé, and I went shopping with her when she was looking for ideas for the kitchen. We went to the Kitchen Design Centre in the city, and their kitchen showrooms were something else. Everything was really unique and customisable, so it wasn’t the one size fits all approach I thought it’d be. My partner and I are looking to start building a home next year, and I can tell you I’ll be right back here when it comes time for the kitchen.
There’s something about designer jeans that leaves others far behind. The cut is always a little better, the fit much more flattering. I’m not normally the kind of person who spends more on a certain label just for the sake of it but with clothes, especially jeans, you really do get what you pay for. Take Nobody Denim for example.
They’ve been one of my favourites for years, and I’ve always bought my designer jeans from them. They’re not as expensive as you’d expect, but they’re by far the highest quality jeans I’ve ever owned – in fact, I think I heard a rumor that Miranda Kerr wears the same ones! That aside, they’re a really great company that does one thing really well. For the best jeans you’ll ever own, I suggest Nobody Denim.
