paint by numbers

Alex Mead is  25 year old artist with a difference. Look at her artwork closely ... can you spot anything unusual? Instead of painting her art on a 2D flat canvas, Alex paints directly onto the skin, clothing and surroundings of her 3D subjects. She then photographs the creations, and they transform into 2D works of art. Beautiful.

scratch and sniff

Selling fragrances online is a big business.  But why is it cheaper to buy fragrances on the web? This is because the online stores buy the fragrances in bulk, store them in warehouses and then ship direct to you. No fancy shopfronts or sales staff to pay wages.  Follow these tips for buying fragrances online, and you'll be smelling like roses in no time!

1.) Go into a store first and try the fragrance out before buying online
2.) Compare prices - don't just look at one online store.
4.) Consider the postage costs! You don't want to be paying $15 for postage if you're only saving $5 for buying it online
5.) Read the Terms & Conditions of the store that your buying from
6.) Eau de Toilette (EdT) or Eau de parfum (EdP)? Parfum often costs more but the scent lasts longer
7.) Buy from a reputable company& if it's within Australia, make sure it has an ABN
8.) Ensure that the shop guarantees the fragrance is 100% original and has a return policy.

Some of our fave places to buy fragrances online:
Strawberry Net
Perfume Warehouse
Perfume Connection


In love with this song 'Brother' by emerging Australian artist Matt Corby. At only 21 Matt's voice has been compared to legendary artists Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley. You wouldn't have guessed that this crazy talented guy came second in Australian Idol way back in 2007 at the tender age of 16. He's all grown up now and taking the indie music world by storm. Enjoy this gorgeous acoustic version of 'Brother' ;)

book worm

Buying books online can save you alot of time and money. We have found that books tend to be cheaper if you buy them online, especially from overseas. Pick, click and posted direct to your door. Enough said.

We found this handy website called Booko. It makes shopping online for books even easier. Booko compares all the popular online book websites that deliver to Australia and then gives you the cheapest option. It even searches the largest international bookstores online like Amazon, Book Depository (free international shipping) and Better World Books (free international shipping). Winning!
