IT Solutions With a Difference October 30, 2014

IT Support

I am the supervisor in a medium sized medical practice, and lately we have employed Specialist IT Partners professional service.

Sadly everyone in the business is quite technology illiterate and although our computer systems were in desperate to upgrade our computers and we would not have the slightest idea where to even start as we have no idea about what we need.

Specialist IT Partners did everything from beginning to end, as well as support and their on-going care means that if anything goes wrong they are able to help us straight away.

We have now got all of our entire back-ups of our systems and data, as well. It’s possible for you to pay online, also, so it is not difficult to keep on top of everything. Everything runs a lot more easily in our office and the difference has been found by our all of our patients.

Buying a new car? Enlist the help of Ryan The Negotiator October 19, 2014

Audi_A

My trusty ’95 Holden Commodore finally bit the dust last week. I’d owned it since new, and I’d covered some serious miles in that thing. I found myself buying a new car for the first time in ages, and admittedly I didn’t even know where to start. A friend of mine said that for discount new cars, Ryan The Negotiator was my best bet.

Well, I gave him a call and told him I was looking to find a new Audi, work was good and I just scored a new sponsor for our organisation so I thought I would upgrade to class, but didn’t want to get ripped off. Within 2 days, Ryan had got back to me with no less than half a dozen options. I couldn’t believe it. I got a much better price than I ever would have had I have gone to a dealer or private seller myself, and all it cost me was $249 for his time. The car’s fantastic, and I even had change from my budget, too.

Shop with Toscani for a premier range of cocktail dresses online October 13, 2014

I’ve got a big event coming up next week – my best friend is speaking at an event and wants my support, together with her fiancé they have organised an after party to celebrate. I was looking for an excuse to buy myself a new dress, so I guess now is a good a time as any.

I’d bought a few things from Toscani before, and I knew their range of cocktail dresses online was pretty impressive.

I ended up buying this beautiful navy blue dress by Camilla and Marc – just one of the labels and designers that Toscani stock.

It wasn’t nearly as expensive as you’d imagine for a designer dress, either.

The best part was that they were able to deliver it to my office in only a few days as I wasn’t going to have a chance to get down to the store before the weekend. If ever you’re looking for designer dresses online, my advice is start with Toscani.

Lifespan Fitness are the way to go for all your home gym needs September 28, 2014

I reckon I’ve got a pretty sweet home gym setup, if I do say so myself. I’ve got a rack, plenty of weights, and even a rowing machine. I’ve started doing a lot more cardio lately, but I didn’t have a treadmill. I could easily go for a run outside, but if the weather is no good then the last thing I want is to miss out on a session. I went straight to Lifespan Fitness to find one, as I’ve bought everything from there so far. These guys are pros – they really know their stuff and are more than happy to give you sound advice before you make a decision or a purchase.

treadmills-melbourne

The range of treadmills was pretty extensive, which didn’t surprise me at all. They’ve got all the bells and whistles, too – manual or automatic incline, shock control, pedometer, heaps of speed settings, you name it. I’ve been to plenty of gym equipment stores before but Lifespan Fitness is by far the best. They’ll even deliver your treadmill Melbourne wide so there’s no need to organise a trailer or anything like that. Check them out online or go visit them in store, either way you’ll be impressed.

For the best boyfriend jeans you’re ever going to find, you can’t go past Nobody September 24, 2014

Boyfriend-jeans

Boyfriend jeans have got to be the best fashion item ever created. I love wearing jeans all the time but when you want to just relax at home or go out for a quick coffee, your trusty pair of skinny black jeans is just a bit too much. Well, enter boyfriend jeans. I’ve got two pairs which I bought from Nobody, and I absolutely love them. The denim is of the highest quality, and they’re so comfortable you’d swear you were wearing tracksuit pants or something. The best thing is that you’re still looking good when you head outside in them – pair them up with a t-shirt and sneakers or boots and you’ve got a real cool, casual look happening. I’d say most the jeans I own are from Nobody denim. They all have a really good cut, the colours don’t fade, and the price is amazing considering you’re getting a high end label for next to nothing. They even do denim shorts, so I’m sorted for summer. If you want to get yourself a pair of boyfriend jeans, and I highly suggest that you do, then head straight to Nobody. Trust me, you’ll never buy denim anywhere else again.

Kids cubby houses; an important part of any backyard August 28, 2014

Kids-cubby-houses

I’ve just moved into a new home with my wife and 2 kids. So far, so good – it’s a nice place in a good neighbourhood with a big backyard for the kids and the dog. However, my children have just informed me there’s one thing missing. A cubby house. At our old place, we had a great big cubby house that I built for them when they were very little. I didn’t really have the time to build a new one for them so I decided to look online. Not any old thing would do, I wanted a really good timber cubby house they could use for years. I came across Lifespan Kids and was very impressed. Their kids cubby houses are the real deal – very authentic and classic in style. The one I had my eye on had a red painted roof, shutters on the windows, and even a slide and ladder, too. It was the perfect size for the backyard, and it came somewhat preassembled so it only took me an hour or two to put together once we got it home. The biggest test of all will be seeing what the kids think – I’m going to surprise them with it tomorrow!

I work as a wedding planner and I absolutely love it. Helping couples organise the most important and happiest day of their lives is such a satisfaction, and there’s nothing like seeing a beautiful wedding pulled of successfully. Naturally I’ve made some pretty good contacts in the industry over the years like florists, caterers, designers, venue hosts, and that sort of thing and I’m always happy to suggest these services to clients I work with. I’ve got great relationships with them all, but the most valuable is the relationship I have with The Designer Bridal Room. Ladies, listen up – if you want a stunning, unique dress that won’t cost a fortune, you go straight to these guys. Their range is simply breathtaking and no two dresses I’ve ever seen come out of that place have looked alike. I promise you, they’re the finest bridal stores Melbourne has to offer and they understand you’ve been dreaming about this day since you were a little girl. You can find yourself a beautiful gown, and your bridesmaids can even get their dresses there, too. Plus they’ve got other accessories like gloves, tiaras and bracelets. Buying a dress from The Designer Bridal Room is a sure way to guarantee you’ll have a wonderful wedding day.

Low Calorie Meals on Wheels July 7, 2014

Meals on Wheels as a name and a concept has always made me smile. Some people take pleasure in cooking but I am not one of those people. A trip to the supermarket is a real pain for me to find time for and I’m happy to outsource all of these menial tasks in my life.

low-calorie-meals

IT’s great to do what makes you happy and so wonderfully convenient to live in a world where you can pay someone else to do the things that don’t really bring you joy. I do like to eat well, healthy food that’s well prepared and well presented; low calorie meals that don’t taste like it. I’ve tried all kinds of meals on wheels type services and the best of them is Dineamic.

Rental Bond Loans Experts June 27, 2014

You’re looking at one. To tell you the truth I knew absolutely nothing about rental bond loans just three short months ago. I am someone who thoroughly enjoys a bit of research though, and someone with plenty of experience in financing. I knew that once I found Housing Bond Loans, I was onto a winner.

rental-bond-loans

We needed to look into rental bond loans for our new shops because we simply didn’t have the liquidity to manage the upfront costs demanded at the time. We had set money aside but circumstances changed. Finding the right rental bond loans was the difference between going ahead with the growth strategy and not so it was pretty crucial stuff. Housing Bond Loans were far away the most impressive operator we found for their offerings and their customer focus. We really felt supported by them.

Black Skinny Jeans Are Seriously Hot Right Now June 23, 2014

black-skinny-jeans

black-skinny-jeans

Black never went out, not in Melbourne anyway, but that’s not to say it isn’t definitely in right now. Black skinny jeans are the must have item for this winter and there are loads of great places to pick up a decent pair. Nobody Jeans are the top of the list with options for guys and girls. Nobody aren’t expensive, but they’re not cheap if you know what I mean.

I used to have a $100 rule when it came to jeans but after one too many average pairs that never got worn, I decided to splurge on some Nobody Jeans. For most people it’s still probably a pretty cheap pair of jeans but the price is far less a consideration than the quality should be. It is all in the stitching and these black skinny jeans have nailed it.
