First things first, don’t worry about your acne — they’ll disappear in due time!
I’m sure you’re worried about lots of things at the moment; the formal, choosing subjects for VCE and how to put on eyeliner without smudging, but I came here from the future to tell you that everything will be alright.
You will find the perfect dress for the formal and you will eventually learn how to put on eyeliner properly (although it might not be till after the formal, oops!) VCE will be tough but you’ll do fine.
And I know you don’t know what you…
I recently stayed at my husband’s uncle’s holiday house as we were visiting his side of the relatives over Christmas.
It was a beautiful house, with the highest of ceilings, gorgeous marble floors and thick wooden doors that would majestically welcome you into every room of the house.
We were assigned one of the guest rooms; a beautiful room which was bigger than any of the rooms in my house. But you could tell that this room hadn’t been slept in for a while, or perhaps even ever.
I immediately knew this because the room had a clock that would…
Dylan, the Chai Villain, is making the best sticky chai blend Melbourne is yet to taste. Dylan was frustrated at the somewhat “beige” chai options available in Melbourne cafes, ones that didn’t have the heat and deep flavour balance of the chai he drank growing up.
So he decided to do something about it.
Dylan launched The Chai Villain in the hope of creating an unapologetic sticky chai blend that excites the drinker and is full of character and flavour. …
Anita was a marketing manager who one day found herself jobless and dairy and soy intolerant. After farewelling her day job and her regular cups of latte, she wanted to kill two birds with one stone as she ventured out on a new path as a full-time entrepreneur sharing a way to drink coffee easily without milk.
She first started experimenting with cold drip coffee at home about 10 years ago after finding long blacks way too bitter to drink sans milk. Anita craved an alternative to dairy-free coffee that she could stomach.
Receiving a cold drip coffee maker as…
Leanne is the wonderfully generous and kind lady boss behind Bao Z — a specialised insta hustle selling one thing and one thing only: Seremban Siew Bao. Don’t worry, I will describe and explain what these little babies are to the newbies out there, but you must all know this; since it launched on the FATH marketplace, it has sold out every week without fail. Every. Single. Week.
Yes there are limited quantities, since each bun is hand pleated by Leanne and her Aunty and a batch takes about 2 days to make, but that’s still almost 200 buns every…
Aidan was a Senior Chef de Partie in some of the top Michelin starred restaurants of the world. Specialising in Pastry, Aidan graced the kitchens of Gidleigh Park, a two Michelin starred country restaurant in the charming UK town of Devon and of course the iconic Dinner by Heston both in London and Melbourne.
Kitty is no ordinary home baker. She didn’t learn how to make cakes from recipe books and trial and error #isobaking, oh no no no, Kitty learnt and practised the art of cake making in the best Melbourne kitchens. And by the best, we’re talking about working as a pastry chef at probably the most famed places in Melbourne; Lune, Dinner by Heston , and Vue De Monde, where she was still working in up till the Melbourne’s first set of lockdowns (because you literally can’t do fine dining degustations take away style)
There is just no way you can…
Welcome to The Herborium, a modern emporium of Herbal Tonics based on the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
What’s a Herbal Tonic, you ask? Wendy, a Registered Physiotherapist and Boss Lady at Herborium, explains it best as “basically flavoured water”. But don’t underestimate the power of this flavoured water, as Herbal Tonics have been used for thousands of years in restoring and invigorating systems of the human body to promote general health and well-being.
Wendy started The Herborium with her husband Alan (who also doubles up as the cute delivery guy), who both have seen first-hand the true…
Did you ever have a teacher at school who punished people when they simply walked out of the classroom to go to the bathroom?
There was one teacher I remember who gave a 30 minutes timeout to a boy in class who one day simply walked out of the room without asking her permission first.
He was just going wee wee, for goodness sake.
Since that debacle, everyone who wanted as much to go to their locker to get a pencil from their bag had to raise their hand and ask:
“Excuse me Miss, can I please…”
We all know requirements are hard to come by. Between your indecisive Product Owners (PO), shifting organisational agendas and random streams of input from substitute technical architects, often it takes about 3 discovery workshops, 10 status meetings and 5 technical workshops to get everybody to agree on one requirement.
As a user
I want to see a catalogue of items
So that I can easily choose an item of my choice to purchase
And then the dreaded words are uttered: “Let’s park this and put it in the product backlog, for now”
Now you’re a cool, calm collected BA so…
