More stats from Cancer Council Queensland:

Skin cancer accounts for the largest number of cancers diagnosed in Australia each year.
Melanoma is the most common cancer in Australians aged 12 – 24.
UV radiation is responsible for 99 per cent of all non-melanoma and 95 per cent of melanoma skin cancers.
Cancer Council research shows that even though almost 90 per cent of Australian adults don’t attempt a suntan over summer, over 60 per cent still report having suntanned skin over summer, indicating a need for improved sun protection practices.
At least two in three Australians are diagnosed with skin cancer before age 70.
Cancer Council Queensland recommends sun protection whenever the UV level is three and above, which is all year round in Queensland.
If you see any spots on your skin that have changed in size, shape or colour, that itches or bleeds, looks unusual or that you do not think was there before we recommend that you see your GP immediately.

Don’t Eat the Scraps: and other powerful “Jules’ Rules” for Success in any New Relationship! Author Jules Price!

Buy on Amazon here >> www.amazon.co.uk//dp/0578590905/

“Don’t Eat the Scraps” describes the crucial and (as of now!) unknown theory of a behavior that men exhibit in the first six to eight weeks in dating. Women everywhere find themselves scratching their head, asking themselves the chin-quivering question, “Where did it all go wrong?”

In a lighthearted, provocative and hilarious way, Jules lays out all the things that women need to know in order to navigate, step-by-step, through the first months of any relationship, armed with some of the soundest Jules’ Rules dating advice they’ll ever receive to overcome future hurdles (and scraps!). It is a one-stop guide to thriving in the murky waters of the dating world… and have a few out-loud chuckles along the way.

Why aren’t MEN allowed to read the book, you ask? It is not a male-bashing book by any means! But if they were to become aware of their own unintended pattern of scrap-flinging behaviors, they would start implementing anywhere from minuscule to dangerously large changes that would ultimately affect the entire balance of this delicate relationship equation.

Armed with this new alarming knowledge, men’s behavior would most certainly morph into some kind of odd and unique strain of the original virus that would be much harder to identify, combat, and eventually eradicate! We simply need more women to understand that this pattern exists so that we don’t misconstrue their intentions, and we can all live harmoniously.

So please, for the sake of all man and womankind, no men allowed…

A MUST-READ, hilarious and considerate insight into how men and women interact and ultimately misunderstand each other’s intentions. Here’s the secret key to go from “Scrappiness” to “Happiness!!”

About Jules Price

Jules Price grew up outside of Washington, D.C. She received a bachelor’s degree in psychology and music at Connecticut College, and then moved to New York City to pursue her passion of singing and theatre. She performed professionally for 15 years in musicals and operettas, including the National and International Tour of The Sound of Music as “Maria” throughout the U.S., Canada and Korea, and then understudied Marie Osmond in the role throughout Singapore, Bangkok, and Hong Kong. She currently still performs with the New York City Ballet as a principal singer in West Side Story Suites.

Jules relocated to Sarasota, FL with her husband Jeremy, the chef/owner of Innovative Dining, a boutique private dining and catering company. It was there that she was first introduced to an online greeting card and gift business, having received a birthday card and gift card from someone she’d never met. With no previous background in the profession, Jules instantly saw the value of the tool and the exciting opportunity it presented. She moved forward with focus, enthusiasm, and a desire to help and support others. This business opened up an unexpected worldwide platform to voice her down-to-earth and relatable advice and experiences.

Her inspirational mindset, quirky sense of humor, and ability to empower and inspire people into action has created a wide impact across both business and personal realms. She continues to be a corporate motivational trainer, voiceover artist, top earner in relationship marketing, and author of her first book, “Secrets from the SOC Drawer.” Jules is passionate about helping others to “listen to life,” get out of their own way, and achieve all the success they desire.

About the book:

“Don’t Eat the Scraps” and Other Powerful Secrets For Success In Any New Relationship!

The little-known but powerfully dangerous concept of the “Scraps Theory” as outlined by Jules Price may save that exciting new blossoming relationship that suddenly takes a downturn, or may be the pivotal turning-point for that one friend of yours who can’t seem to find that great guy you know she’s destined to eventually discover! “Jules’ Rules” is your one-stop guide to navigating and thriving in today’s dating world… and have a few out-loud chuckles along the way.

This allows you to turn water from lakes, rivers or even dodgy looking taps into clean, safe drinking water on demand. With the increased awareness of the impact of single use plastics on the environment and the sheer scale of microplastics in both wild rivers and bottled mineral water, LifeSaver offers both a more environmentally friendly way to access drinking water and the reassurance that your water is truly purified.

A unique 2-in-1 design means that the Liberty can also be used to pump purified water into other clean containers, so you only need one when exercising as a group or travelling together. The advanced filter includes FailSafe technology which means that no water can pass through the filter once it needs replacing, so there’s no risk of accidentally drinking contaminated water. The filter can also purify 2,000 litres of dirty water before it needs replacing – that’s nearly three years’ worth of drinking water if you manage to stick to the recommended two litres a day!

Christmas Gifts for Young Kids

At Mindful and Co – Kids, founder Jacqueline Yeats, who has created a business which sells products that instil mindfulness into children’s daily lives, believes the art of mindfulness has the ability to help kids survive and thrive.


Her first product, a yoga flash card game that encourages the practice of mindfulness on-the-go, features 26 beautifully hand-illustrated poses from celebrated children’s illustrator Chloe Jasmine.
With an accompanying explanation of each pose, how to achieve it, and its benefits on the back of each flashcard, children not only gain the knowledge they need for their own practice, but the ability to show others how to embrace yoga for themselves.
The card set also includes an instruction card for parents.
“My mission is to inspire, strengthen, and foster happier, healthier more resilient young minds through mindfulness, with the bigger vision of changing the alarming mental health statistics for young people,” says Jacqueline.
“It’s a way of being that empowers and encourages young minds instead of hindering them, or barricading them, or telling them to “be realistic” or “toughen up”.
“Mindfulness and yoga for children are coming from a new perspective, from where we, as parents, aim to teach children a better way of life.”
Jacqueline started her business after completing her Master of Counselling and Psychotherapy (with her research component based on Mindfulness as a clinical intervention for stress disorders) at Bond University in Queensland. Jacqueline found there was so much research coming out to support mindfulness as a successful intervention for disorders such as anxiety and depression, that she decided she wanted to teach children at a young age the benefits of mindfulness so they had a tools and strategies to deal with stress later on in life.
Jacqueline began to teach mindfulness and yoga classes to children to test the results she had seen in her research.
“With the mindfulness and yoga classes, I had parents come up to me after only one or two sessions and say that their children were sleeping better and were happier with less mood swings,” she says.
“They had fewer tantrums and they were using the different exercises practiced in class, including mindfulness, breathing, gratitude and yoga practices, to self-regulate their emotions, play on their own and overall have more positive interactions with siblings and other family members.”
The products we have created give parents another tool to help calm children in the short and long-term. It is also a wonderful alternative to screen time.
“Through yoga and mindfulness exercises, we invite our children to connect deeper with themselves, and the world around them.
“We give them t he tools to take into scary situations, difficult relationships, big life decisions, and feel assured and safe in their choices.”
One parent, Donna, whose son Reid has Autism and struggles with sensory overload, says that by practicing with the yoga cards Reid has been able to self-regulate his emotions.
“Reid actually goes for the cards himself because he knows that will help him calm down,” Donna says.
“We’ll see him in the lotus position for 90 seconds, getting into a calmer zone!”

Maison BangBang combines luxury and the art of fashion with sustainable innovation.

Reinventing classic styles with a decadent approach centered on bold and unexpected details, an elegant attitude, glamour and a sense of empowerment. All products are unisex and hand-made from premium vegan leather.

Here’s a great offer for cat lovers: cat DNA test. It helps cat owners discover more about their cat’s breed traits, habits and most importantly – health. Knowing about potential health risks will help you minimize them.

Australia – November 24, 2019


With just a month to go before the fat man graces us with his presence (and his presents!), it is time to start well and truly panicking about your Christmas list! If you have any travellers on your list – we’re here to help.
Long Haul Spa – and her brother Tarmac – are specially curated kits designed by long haul travellers specifically for long haul travellers. Crafted in New Zealand from local botanicals, each kit has a gorgeous skincare regimen to get you through a long haul flight looking fantastic and with your “A Game” intact. Long Haul Spa (ladies) has 8 products, while Tarmac (men) has 5 – housed in a beautiful Louenhide (vegan) toiletries bag. Sanitising hand-wipes, dehydrated towels and lots of product information round out the contents. Each of the products is 15ml – small enough to slide through security but big enough to get you through more than a handful of flights feeling like a rockstar!

About Long Haul Group: Based in Brisbane Australia, Long Haul Group creates products specifically designed for long haul fliers – to help make long flights suck a little less. Founded in 2018 by former flight attendant and technology refugee Christine Keeling, Long Haul Groups’ first
product was Long Haul Spa followed by Tarmac in 2019. Long Haul Spa/Tarmac products are made in New Zealand from locally and internationally sourced botanicals and are vegan, parabenfree and cruelty-free. Long Haul Spa offsets a tiny bit of their carbon footprint by planting a tree for every kit sold, through One Tree Planted.
About the Founder: Founder Christine Keeling is a software executive and former flight attendant, who flew over 70 international flights in 5 years, representing her tech clients. Her biggest challenge was spending 24 hours in transit over 11 time zones and expected to waltz into a meeting looking fresh and credible. Keeling created her own products to use in-flight because she could not find anything fit for purpose to combat the impact on her skin thanks to the extremely low humidity found on a plane. Canadian born Keeling says even the worst winter at home is more gentle on her skin. She has lived in very humid Brisbane, Australia since 2015

The self-service gift card kiosks – the first in the world – aren’t just in pubs. Bulldog Kiosks are also rolling them out in department stores as a queue-free, personalised alternative to traditional store cards.

Slab & Tipple, are an artisan chocolate company, based in North London. They hand-craft small-batch chocolate treats, including a range of high-quality chocolate bars infused with CBD oil.

With no THC present, the bars are not psychotropic, so won’t get you high! But CBD is widely reported as being a great support for some health issues, such as anxiety and stress, with many more people using CBD as a post-workout muscle recovery supplement and sleep aid.

The bars come in both a 20% and 40% oil strength, and are available in dark, milk and ruby chocolate. Available from the Slab & Tipple website, bars are priced £24.95 for 20% oil strength (contains 200mg CBD total) and £29.95 for 40% oil strength (contains 400mg CBD total). Each bar is 100g, and comes in snappable segments, so you can easily manage how much you are taking at once.

In addition to their CBD range, they also produce a range of flavoured bars infused with natural oils priced at £3.95, suitable for all ages, including classic, fun and moreish flavours (white chocolate with blackberry and popping candy, anyone?).

MY Furniture Selected to Furnish Luxury Show House

MY Furniture’s products were recently chosen to dress a luxury five bed show house in Bramcote, Nottingham. Their furniture, lighting and accessories have been used harmoniously throughout the property, to create a stylish family home; sit back and enjoy as we take you on a tour of this exclusive development.

Appointed by Willmark Homes, interior designer Nykke Jones selected a variety of key pieces from MY Furniture’s extensive range to compliment this sleek, contemporary show house. Inspired by the architectural features of the property, Nykke wanted to create a sophisticated yet edgy feel using a colour palette of soft taupe’s and creamy beige’s, combined with pops of peacock blue and burnt orange. Striking black and luxurious metallic elements were used to create a sense of drama throughout this new build.

The entrance hall features the impressive four-door Ravello sideboard, pictured above, leading to an open-plan living space. Here Nykke has used the Kronos dining table and Alveare dining chairs, centred under the Alveare LED pendant light, to create an inviting dining space.

In the kitchen, two of MY Furniture’s Alveare modular pendant lights hang side by side over the island where their graphic, honeycomb pattern complements the minimal kitchen design beautifully. A sociable kitchen seating area has been created with the use of the Alveare counter stools.

The downstairs living area features a variety of furniture pieces, lamps and accessories that were carefully selected from MY Furniture’s various collections to create a cohesive design space. Seating, storage and practical tables with brass detailing have been combined to create a stylish yet usable living area.

Upstairs is just as impressive with five bedrooms all beautifully styled from MY Furniture’s bedroom collections. Each of the schemes features an upholstered bed, bedside tables, dressing table and seating as well as wall lights or table lamps.

Showrooms
Customers can view MY Furniture’s striking designs first hand in their main showroom located in Nottingham. For those with access to London, MY Furniture also have an exciting 30 square metre pop-up showroom in Chelsea Creek where their most interesting, unique and beautiful items can be viewed. New for MY Furniture, the aim of their pop-up shop was to display a variety of finishes with a cohesive palette, which best represents their current style direction.
