It’s been a bit of a stressful month. My partner and I recently broke up after living together for the last 3 years. It wasn’t a messy breakup, we both just realised we wanted different things and life and were headed in opposite directions. I found myself needing to find a new place, and quick. I crashed on the couch of a girlfriend of mine for a week or so and all the while went to open days and rental inspections trying desperately to find something within my price range. I had a bit of luck, but the bond amount was pretty huge and I never paid one when I moved into my ex’s apartment so I don’t have one coming back to me. My friend suggested I look at rental bond loans, which I’d never heard of. A company called Rent Bond Move provide short term loans for this exact reason – covering the bond in a new place. I applied online and within 24 hours had the money in my account. I wrote out a cheque and with that in my hand, went to a rental inspection and secured the place right then. While it’s been a tough few weeks, Rent Bond Move did help in relieving some of the stress. If you’re moving, you should definitely give them a call.

Healthy body, healthy mind. I’ve always been a bit of a health nut, and I guess I inherited that from my parents. When I was growing up, I didn’t have chocolates, chips or lollies in my lunchbox like all the other kids. I had carrot sticks, apples and wholegrain sandwiches. Sure, it may not have been all that fun when I was younger but I’ve now got my parents to thank for my good health today. I eat well, exercise when I can, drink sensibly and don’t smoke at all. One of the more important aspects of my good health is my choice to opt for herbal medicines wherever possible. If it’s something serious that requires proper medical care than I’m more than happy to visit a doctor or the hospital, but I hate taking things like antibiotics and so forth. I source majority of my herbal medicines from PPC Herbs – their Herbal Plex range is great and has cured me of many ills over the years. They’re easy to swallow and are often diluted in fruit juice or water, and can relieve you of anything from the common cold all the way to intestinal worms or liver problems. I’d highly recommend PPC Herbs to anyone who prefers a natural alternative.

I hurt my leg pretty badly playing football quite a few months ago; unfortunately, it put an early end to the season for me. I was on crutches for a few months and I’m still limping around now. While it’s no fun having to miss out on footy, the hardest part has been keeping weight off. I went from a very active person who exercised daily to one who doesn’t exercise at all anymore; naturally, it’s been quite tricky managing my weight now that I’m barely on my feet. I still eat healthily but at the end of the day it’s not enough – I need to get my active lifestyle back. One thing that has been a real big help is the meal plans for weight loss I’ve been getting from Dineamic. Dineamic provide home delivered meals and plans for weight loss using fresh, natural ingredients prepared in their kitchens by real chefs. No processed, 2-minute microwave options here. Everything is really nutritious and portioned according to dietary requirements, and it all tastes amazing. I’m particularly fond of the Thai red chicken curry. I can’t wait for my leg to heal and back on the oval, and in the meantime I’ll be much more likely to keep excess weight off thanks to Dineamic.

It’s hard to find a really unique home builder these days. It’s harder still to find one that can get exactly what you want yet still come in under budget. I’ve lived in a few different locations in the last decade, but I really want to settle in Carrum Downs. It’s a nice area, close to the beach, and I’ve got a lot of friends and family down that way. I’d also like to get a home with a decent backyard, which is another compromise a lot of homeowners are making these days. I did a bit of searching online and came across House and Land Packages Melbourne. Straight away I knew these guys were different – they’ve got lots of different builders across different estates, and each one is really unique. The last thing I wanted was to live in a house that looked like every other one on my street, and from what I can tell they’re really open to working with you on your ideas. Not many builders will do that anymore, especially not for house and land packages Carrum Downs. I’m speaking with a few of them now and I’ve got a really good feeling about this.

I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome about 6 months ago. The doctors weren’t entirely sure what caused it, and I was pretty surprised myself. Before my diagnosis I was at my wits’ end trying to figure out what was wrong with me – I had severe pain in my muscles and joints, frequent headaches, and I was exhausted all the time. Not just tired, but physically exhausted. It was somewhat of a relief to finally get diagnosed and have an answer as to why I was feeling the way I was, but I’ve come to realise that other people aren’t quite as educated on the matter. When I told people that I was suffering from CFS, a lot just assumed I was nothing more than a little tired. It’s so much more than that, and thankfully I was able to find a bit of relief with PPC Herbs. I’d never really looked into natural medicine before, but their treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome was an absolute lifesaver. They recommended I use Astro Plex which is a completely natural product comprising Reishi mushroom, olive leaf, Echinacea and astragalus root – quite a mouthful, I know, but it really has worked. If you’ve been living with CFS, you don’t have to any longer – get in touch with PPC Herbs.

I work in event planning, and I’d have to say I reckon I have one of the best jobs in the world. It’s a lot of work, yes, but it’s a lot of fun organising an entire event from start to finish and seeing it go off without a hitch. Most of the time, anyway! For a lot of the events I organise, the client is interested in tours of wineries and vineyards and for that I send them straight to Dreamscape Tours. I’ve worked closely with them for years now and they’re the only people I trust for Yarra Valley winery tours. They really know their stuff, and the wineries are renowned in the region for their superb Pinot Noirs and Cabernet Sauvignons. There are plenty of other things you can do, too – chocolate tasting, cheese tasting, fruit tours in the warmer months, and if wine isn’t really your poison of choice then there are a few breweries and cider houses, too. Dreamscape Tours offer a very professional service and in this industry, that’s everything. Right down to the bus they organise to get you to and from the wineries, no stone is left unturned. Check them out, you won’t regret it.
