The majority of dental problems are preventable. Starting your children with good preventive dental care from when they have their first teeth means you and your child will receive good dental health advice, assess dental development and ensure that going to the dentist is an anxiety free experience that your children will actually enjoy.

to Shine Magazine Issue 23

Welcome to the June/July issue of Shine magazine. Winter is now upon us and I’ve already slipped into the routine of my perfect winter weekend! Saturday mornings start with a walk along the Esplanade with the dog. We make our way down to Cronulla Beach and sit on the steps drinking coffee. It’s a great sun trap. After coffee it's back along the Esplanade looping the Cronulla Peninsula. Bass and Flinders memorial on the southern tip of the South Cronulla Peninsula is a superb lookout over the Port Hacking River across to the Royal National Park. Cronulla has a comfortable feel even in winter. We enjoy a temperate climate year round with mild winters. The water temperatures are rarely below 14 degrees centigrade so surfing in a wetsuit is still comfortable. I take the ferry across the Port Hacking river to Bundeena and the Royal National Park. Walk along the coast and watch the whales migrating north. The park offers riverside picnics, great surf beaches, cliff top walks, rainforest cycle tracks, and more. Sunday gets off to a late start of coffee with the weekend papers. Dining out in Cronulla is part of what makes the lifestyle here so appealing. Brunch or lunch in one of the many cafes throughout Cronulla is an essential activity. From its beautiful beaches and bays to its bushland, the Shire is a fantastic place to enjoy nature. There are plenty of things to do during winter so hop off the lounge, take off your pyjamas and get involved in local events. See page 7 for some great community events.

Winter Glow

Like most women I hate what happens to my skin and body during the winter months. That dry flaky dull skin we all get makes the winter doldrums even worse! I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way and I hope these few in salon & at home skin glow winter tips, will help you achieve the best winter skin ever. Clearly A lessening of humidity in the air & indoor heating causes the skin to lose moisture and become abnormally dry, which in turn reduces the suppleness & elasticity of your skin. Here are a few helpful home tips for keeping your skin well hydrated and glowing during the winter months: *Using a humidifier, especially at night time will immediately help with dry itchy skin and dry lips. This will also help your body during the vital process of cell renewal which occurs at night time. The proper amount of humidity in the air will create a better sleeping environment which greatly aids the cell renewal process and creates unstressed skin. * You need to exfoliate your body and face regularly. Dry body brushing (using a natural bristle brush) if done every day before you take a shower can help to boost collagen and elastin, smoothing out your skin. Dry brushing causes a mild irritation to the skin, triggering the skin’s healing mechanism & help reduce unsightly cellulite. * Use a moisturizer for your face and body prescribed for your specific skin condition.You need something extremely hydrating in winter but not necessarily heavy or oily. It needs to be nourishing in order to feed your skin and maintain its suppleness. AHAVA hydrating mask can be left on overnight at least once a week as an intense treatment. * A few more things that can make a huge difference in how your skin glows during the winter months: Drink enough water and eat nutritious foods that will help strengthen your skin and help retain their natural oils. Take an essential fatty acid supplement daily, (DMK efa’s are the perfect supplement jam packed with omega 3, 6, 7 & 9) providing external & internal age management, 6


assisting immune function & helping repair tissue damage. Having been in the beauty industry for 15 years, I come across recurring skin concerns that affect both men & women. The short of it is we all want to look our best & there is a limit to the results that can be achieved at home, so here are some essential salon treatments that I highly recommend during winter to keep your skin & body feeling & looking its best. *One huge concern for women is cellulite & it is one that is least understood. The easy and painless way to achieve cellulite free legs is through Endermologie®. This treatment uses motorized rollers & negative pressure to stimulate collagen & elastin production, reducing fluids & trapped toxins from skin tissue & stimulating blood flow for a healthier appearance. Lipomassage™ is a process of Endermologie® that can target pockets of fat that are resistant to diet & exercise. This treatment releases fat from your fat cells which is then dispersed naturally through the body’s lymphatic and vascular system (a process called lipolysis). Great for the thighs, hips, stomach, knees or arms. Endermologie® & Lipomassage™ are great treatments to have done now, in preparation for a great body to show off in the warmer months. *A course of IPL Photo Rejuvenation treatments is one of the easiest & non invasive processes we use to restore the youthful health and glow to your skin by delivering intense light pulses to damaged and Continued on page 20

Why don't I seem to notice any benefit from herbal medicines I buy from retailers?

So many reasons...quality of raw materials, harvesting and storage of herb, substitution and adulteration of species, and methods used to prepare a herbal extract may all be of concern in over-thecounter herbal medicines. Practitioner-grade products are stringently tested and analysed to ensure correct species, and then assessed for their activity level, to guarantee a quality product that actually works.

I am ready to leave my partner because he has changed and is withdrawn and moody all the time. What do you suggest? Kathy, Miranda Honesty.

Your can try to open him up by being curious and listening , if this doesn't happen suggest it is important enough to seek professional help about because it may cost both of you your relationship.

ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS SUITABLE FOR ME? If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants can offer you the solution to replacing what has been lost and restore the appearance, function and feel of natural teeth. Dental implants replace the root of the missing tooth with one made of titanium. Just like a natural tooth, the new titanium root anchors the replacement teeth above the gum line. Solutions range from replacing a single tooth to several teeth or all teeth, and with the latest in treatment techniques, treatment is usually performed under local anesthetic with minimal discomfort and inconvenience. Implants offer great advantages over traditional treatments • They look, feel and function like natural teeth. • They maintain the jawbone and help avoid that ‘sunken look’ of the face. • They are reliable and last a long time. • Implants are fixed and do not need to be removed. As every person is unique, treatment needs to be tailored to individual requirements and circumstances. Your general health as well as the amount and quality of bone dictates whether this treatment is suitable. At Jacaranda dental we offer comprehensive implant service for the Sutherland Shire and perform most treatments in our practice. As it is a surgical procedure you will need to be assessed for your suitability, and thankfully there are very few patients who are unable to have implants placed. Once past 18 years old, your age is no barrier to treatment. So if you’re one of the many people missing teeth through injury, dental disease or wear and tear, implants offer a solution to an age old problem. For more information visit our website or call the surgery for a comprehensive dental examination.

and you

Are you aware of when you become moody? Then, can you trace its origin to its TRIGGER? Do you keep conscious of how this affects the company you keep? And, are you confident you have the tools to selfmanage your moods naturally? All of these questions give us an understanding of our current levels of EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE, in other words, our levels of awareness of our feelings and ability to use them to get us where we are happy to be. Moods or Mood Disorders are energetically frozen emotions. Yes, unprocessed emotions may end up as a mood. If you are not one to show your anger in an appropriate way you may end up as someone always irritated. Or, if you are unaware or blocked in expressing your sadness you may end up flat and lacking spontaneity. We can usually trace the moments our emotions froze back to one or more of the following situations:



We were unable to do what we wanted to do We were unable to say what we wanted to say. We were unable to get our needs met in some way. Mood Shifters‌‌these are tools used to self manage our moods. * Self awareness checks. How am I generally feeling? Have I been cheating on my own self care in some way? * Social awareness checks. What am I like amongst others? * Willingness to evaluate yourself and the situation honestly and employ wise expression. Are you personalizing? Are you making assumptions? Do you need to ask more questions or express yourself more clearly? DEENA THOMPSON Individual & Relationship Counsellor 0438 811 117

someone who shines Perry Haddock talks about the success of


Former St.George Dragons halfback Perry Haddock may have hung his boots up professionally from Rugby League in the late 80’s however that hasn’t stopped him being progressive in the world of sport. Oztag was founded in 1992 when an idea came about whilst Haddock was coaching the 21s for St George and wanted something other than touch for them to play. “I wrote the rules and demoed the game, trialled out a suggestion from my wife to put velcro on the shorts and it all happened from there” said Haddock. Hailing from the Central Coast and a Shire resident since 1981 Haddock resides in Gymea Bay with his family and is kept busy with overseeing Oztag nationally and ensuring the sport is ever evolving. Oztag is played by over 6,000 participants in Sutherland Shire so it’s no secret this game is one of the most popular played team sports locally and now around Australia. Oztag is a non-contact version of rugby league where defenders must rip one of two velcro strips, known as tags, from the ball carriers shorts instead of tackling. It’s great for kids. Oztag is a fast paced exciting sport that can be enjoyed by male, female and mixed teams of all athletic abilities from the ages of 8 - 60. Oztag competitions are currently run in midweek after school/work in both summer and winter. Many friends, family and work colleagues form teams primarily for fun and fitness. The attraction of Oztag is that there is no training, no volunteer duty and team coaches aren’t required. When asked what is next for Oztag Haddock answered with this statement “ We are looking at adding on a new game Super Tag and looking at full playing field (Oztag is played across ways on half a field) which will involve more players, more space and some rule changes, it’s just the evolution of the sport”. These days you will find Haddock refereeing local Oztag competitions rather than playing due to injury from the legacy of playing rugby league. “My kids play the summer comps so I also have an interest with their teams.” says Haddock. Golf is another favourite pastime for Haddock with memberships at Cronulla and St. Michael’s Golf Clubs when he isn’t fleeting about the 14


country overseeing a game that came from an idea on the field almost two decades ago. For Info regarding Oztag contact Sutherland Shire Oztag on 9501-3600 or email: info@ www. By Melisa George

Supercharge your immune system Many of us dread the winter season as it can be dominated by coughs, colds, and flu's. The subsequent time off work, and difficulty coping with everyday home life when we are unwell, just makes winter even less appealing. However, there are some things you can do to manage this season well, and move through any infections mildly and swiftly! 1. AVOID SUGAR...including fruit juice, it reduces white blood cell function and competes with Vitamin C to get into cells. 2. GET ENOUGH REST AND GOOD SLEEP...if you are overly tired, it will be harder to fight off infections 3. EAT more garlic, onions, chilli, ginger, cinnamon... These can help fight bugs, keep your circulation going through the colder months, and shift congestion 4. WASH your hands regularly...BUT, avoid anti bacterial soaps containing triclosan. It not only kills bacteria, but also human cells (Eur J Oral Sci 1998), and contributes to the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

5. NATURAL MEDICINES from your Naturopath can really make a difference to your immune function. Herbal Medicines such as Cat's Claw, Astragalus, Sundew, and Thuja...Nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc, and Cod Liver Oil...and Foods such as Activated Manuka Honey, Garlic, and Propolis can be great preventative and treatment options. There are also Homoeopathic preparations that are especially useful for babies and young children Your local Naturopaths at Health In Our Hands are experienced in immune system problems.

Vital Eyes Everyone has heard the old story that eating carrots will help you to see in the dark. Over the past few years, health practitioners have begun to understand the influence of diet on chronic disease. It is true that good nutrition, including eating lots of fish and brightly coloured vegetables, will help you to retain good vision. Studies have found that high levels of antioxidants and zinc reduce by about 25% the risk of developing advanced age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). Macular degeneration is a disease that damages the part of the retina responsible for central vision and seeing fine detail. If both eyes are affected, reading and other tasks

requiring fine vision may become very difficult. ARMD does not cause blindness and because some siode vision remains, often people can still take care of themselves. The best way to ensure that you receive the vitamins and minerals you need is through a balanced, healthy diet. This should be rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, particularly colourful vegetables like capsicum and green leafy vegetables, lean meat, seafood, dairy products and whole grains. If you feel your diet is lacking, it is possible to take dietary supplements, and regular checks with your Optometrist is essential. At all Langshaw and Bell locations we are equipped with the latest most advanced equipment that enables early detection and monitoring of this eye disease. When did you last have your eyes checked?

blemished areas. As the light is absorbed by your skin, it kick starts the development of collagen on the treated area. This new collagen restores your skin's youthful look and feel. It removes blemishes and reduces pigmentation as well as broken surface capillaries & fine lines. It is a must to stay out of the sun before & after treatment, which makes winter the perfect time of year to have IPL for Photo Rejuvenation or Permanent Hair Reduction. * Microdermabrasion is another way to keep your skin looking young and healthy during winter. It removes the buildup of dead cells through a unique diamondtipped wand and in turn, exposing newer, more radiant skin. The slight abrasion causes the skin’s healing mechanism to trigger and increase cellular turn over and collagen production. This treatment can be done all over face & body & is safe to use on all skin types. A course of microdermabrasion will minimize the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, crow’s feet, stretch

marks, age spots, folliculitis, enlarged pores & blemishes. *Our DMK 6 Layer Peel is a fabulous treatment that I recommend to help remove some of the damage done to your skin in the warmer months. This effective resurfacing procedure reduces pigmentation, scarring & fine lines. Your skin may need one of or a combination of the above treatments, that’s why at Cronulla Skin Sanctuary we offer a complementary consultation to assess your condition & concerns. Whether your skin could use a peel for age rejuvenation or microdermabrasion for acne scars, IPL for Hair Removal, or sun damage, we do it all. Contact us today on 9523 6105 to find out what package we can design for you! Cronulla Skin Sanctuary is located at 39a Kingsway, Cronulla Shinemagazine2011


Look after your skin in Winter Winter is a good time to make the effort to look after your skin. Most people try to eat well and exercise but it’s our skin that we neglect. Our face is our most important feature as it is seen by everyone we meet. The girls at Beauty Addiction got together and discussed what they thought was important in a skin care regime for home. In just a few minutes a day you too can follow the regime. (1) Apply Sunscreen every day. The sun is the most damaging thing to our skin. (2) Cleanse day and night with a good cleanser. Skin produces oil which absorbs impurities. (3) Scrub at least every three days. Dead skin cells make your face look dull and grey. Removing the dead skin shows the face in a more natural colour. (4) A good face moisturiser day and night keeps moisture in the skin. When anything dries out it cracks. The skin is no different and fine lines turn into deep cracks over time.

(5) Drink plenty of water. It is good for you in many ways and puts moisture into the skin as the body’s natural face moisturiser. (6) Reduce smoking, drinking and drugs. Impurities and toxins cause damage to the skin. Following these simple steps can enhance your overall appearance. When we look in the mirror and look fresh it makes us feel good inside and leaves you feeling confident all day. by Jodi from Beauty Addiction by Jodi

The Esplanade

South Cronulla

In the first of a regular series, Shine focuses on My Street. It is a local Sutherland Shire street that you may already live in or like to live in. We do the research for you. The pros, the cons and how much it would cost to live there. WHERE: This issue Shine focuses on The Esplanade which encircles the South Cronulla peninsular. This beachfront walkway commences along Cronulla Beaches, goes by the cafe precincts and right around South Cronulla and back to Cronulla. WHY: “Views Views and more Views!” Those lucky enough to live on The Esplanade enjoy the best views in Cronulla. If you're fond of spectacular ocean views, swimming, surfing, fishing, walking and eating, it’s all on your doorstep when you live on The Esplanade. Some would say that once you’ve made it to The Esplanade, the Shire’s most eastern point, you’ve made it. That’s both a pro and a con. It’s not cheap. And it’s not private. With hundreds of people walking by some residents feel they are living in a fish bowl. Others simply design accordingly and sit back and enjoy the lifestyle. HOW MUCH: Properties located here are generally more expensive than the rest of Cronulla. Unit prices can range from $500k to $3mil and house prices can achieve well over $3m. Example 1: 2/5-6 The Esplanade, Cronulla NSW 2230. $1,100,000. Ocean views so close you can almost touch the surf plus a position that boasts absolute convenience to local shops, cafes and restaurants this beachside three bedroom apartment gives new meaning to the word lifestyle. Example 2: 3/12 The Esplanade, CRONULLA. $760,000 Enjoying breathtaking panoramic views across the full stretch of Cronulla's beaches through to the surf breaks at Cronulla Point and distant city views. Positioned on The Esplanade with a northerly aspect, 20


this ground floor unit offers a lifestyle you could only wish for. A short stroll to Cronulla shops, beaches, cafes, restaurants and transport. Example 3: 83 The Esplanade Street Cronulla. $3,500,000 Breath taking beach views from your doorstep! Spectacular water front residence boasting large lawns, 5 generously sized bedrooms all with beautiful cedar woodwork throughout and double lock up garage. Example 4: 85 The Esplanade, Cronulla, NSW 2230. $2,600,000 This Esplanade home in South Cronulla offers breathtaking panoramas which take centre stage from this low maintenance family home. In a prized location, it boasts an entertainer's balcony which enjoys views from Bate Bay to Voodoo point. With private front and rear yards this home provides the ultimate ocean side lifestyle. The home is within walking distance to cafes, parks, surf breaks and transport. Profile Information for South Cronulla.

The Overseas Passenger Terminal at Sydney’s Circular Quay had a fabulous week of fashion, models and celebrities. The runway was a rainbow of colour with fabulous garments. Orange shined the most for this summer. Floaty Flowing Sheer Silks, lace and Satins are a hit fabric with pleats and ruffles to shape. Bold bright splashes or block colour are the mix and whites are back for a fresh statement. Structured suits made an impact and leather trims are in. Short or maxi's are the lengths with no in betweens.

health Getting out doors on a regular basis can improve one’s health and sense of well-being. The air that we breathe on the inside is not as fresh as we need it to be. Dust is a fact of every day life. It collects on every surface. As we try to get rid of it, the dust swirls around us and makes its way into our respiratory system via nose and mouth. Fresh air cleans our lungs. We may cough a bit at first as our lungs are getting rid of the impurities that we suck up on a weekly basis. But, after a while we’ll begin to breathe deeper and deeper which brings more oxygen to our cells. Shinemagazine2011

art & craft Toy Storage Tips One problem, many solutions As you acquire toys and other play items you'll find it useful to have a good method of storage for kids toys. Influencing kids to keep the house tidy is an art! Having good toy storage solutions is key.


Not too many toys/choices available to the child (3-6 items seemed ideal, else the child becomes anxious or confused)



BANANA BLIZZARDS Blend together one-cup cold milk with two or three bananas in a blender. Ask the children to count aloud as you add ten snowballs (scoops of vanilla frozen yogurt) to the blender. Invite the children to turn the blender on and off again to create the blizzard. Serve in paper ice cream cups (serves 10)

Child can see all the choices (no toys buried under others, leaving doubt about what else might be available and distracting from the chosen toy)


A place or "home" for every toy (making it easier for the child to understand what to do with the toy when done playing with it)


The "discipline" to put back each toy BEFORE going on to the next one (this discipline normally comes from the parent, the eventual goal being an internal discipline in the child)


Create this space with your children, as they are the ones going to be playing and searching for the toys to play with and it’s also fun for the child. Time to Shop try. IKEA Kids, Domain, Garages Sales and 2nd Hand Furniture Stores.

Trying to

keep cool

A touch of stress or anxiety is generally accepted as an every day occurrence in life. When playing a healthy role, it is that alarm bell that reminds us of our values, the things we feel are really important in our lives, and motivates us to be protective of them, or work harder to achieve our goals and aspirations. Adolescence and early adulthood are often associated with increases in stress and anxiety, as individuals are developing a sense identity, becoming



more independent from their parents and taking on more responsibility, as well as managing the demands of academic endeavours and transitioning to career choices. During these times, the volume on that alarm becomes louder and louder, to the point where it becomes too noisy to hear our thoughts, and we can find ourselves reacting to the distress in ways that are in conflict with our values and leading to consequences that pull us further away from achieving our goals.

Muz & Hardos Fishing Tips

THE RED EMPEROR This issue we have once again moved into warmer waters, which is why we had to travel to catch one of these beauties. The Red Emperor. Without doubt one of the most attractive and sort after species in Australian waters. "Reds", demand a high price on the fish market as they are only caught wild and regarded as one of Australias finest table fish, often seen on the menus of Australias finest restaurants. This Red was caught on the Great Barrier Reef east of Townsville fishing in a lagoon in about 6 metres of water. As you can see by the picture the water visibility was up to 20 metres I actually watched this Red approach from the patch of reef (see pic), and swallow my bait, setting my heart racing before the fight had actually began. Reds always are found in large schools and are mainly caught in deep water this was my first in shallow water, and once the first red is in the oat there are usually more to follow. Fresh mullet

fillets are one of the best baits, using 40lb main line and up to 80lb trace and 5/0 - 8/0 heavy duty hooks. Heavy lead is a must as you are usually in deep water where currents can be strong.

Tight lines Muz and Hardo



you are what you eat We’ve all heard the old adage ‘you are what you eat’, but have you ever stopped to think exactly how true that is? It is the notion that to be fit and healthy you need to eat good food. Put simply, healthy eating is the key to wellbeing. Whether you’re struggling with your weight, feel like you’ve got no energy, are suffering from stress, have specific health problems or just want to feel more alive, you need to eat a healthy, balanced diet and stay active. The key to a healthy balanced diet is to balance what you eat by consuming a variety of foods from each food group in the right proportions for good health. The five food groups that should be on your plate are: Fruit and vegetables Bread, rice, potatoes and pasta The final third of the plate is made up of three groups containing foods that need to be consumed in smaller proportions. Milk and dairy foods Meat, fish, eggs and beans Foods and drinks high in fat and/or sugar This group includes foods that should be eaten sparingly because they're an important energy source.

Our eight tips for eating well are: Base meals on starchy foods Eat lots of fruit and vegetables Eat more fish Cut down on saturated fat and sugar Try to eat less salt - no more than 6g a day Get active and try to be a healthy weight Drink plenty of water Don't skip breakfast

Blue Mountains

Winter Wonderland Why do so many Shire residents escape to the Blue Mountains in winter? The Blue Mountains region has some of the most luxurious resorts in the country with a range of intimate day spas offering rejuvenating aromatherapy, massage and beauty treatments. Combine this with a weekend of fine food and fresh air and you'll return home a new person. Why not treat yourself to a rejuvenating treatment at a local day spa? Pamper yourself with a facial or massage. Linger a little longer at a health retreat for a complete detox. Less than 90 minutes by car from Sutherland Shire, discovering the secrets of this World Heritage region is easy. The new Freeway provides direct road links and regular train services take you to the Blue Mountains in around 2 hours. The Blue Mountains area is Australia's most accessible World Heritage listed wilderness. Stretching over one million hectares the Greater Blue Mountains 36


features some of the most breathtaking vistas in Australia. It is an inspiring and diverse mix of rainforest, blue-hazed valleys, golden sandstone escarpments, eucalypt forest, canyons and windswept heath lands. Winter in the Blue Mountains for me spells the opportunity to sit by roaring log fires and tuck into hearty meals after enjoying brisk outdoor walks. Christmas In July is a big reason to visit the mountains and enjoy traditional Christmas type activities in a climate better suited to it. There are a series of guided walks to suit anyone from the most casual stroller to the dedicated hiker. There are also six fine golf courses in the Mountains and it is easy to get a game on any of them. Escape to a winter wonderland of brisk sunny days with cold winter nights spent warming to roaring log fires and discover the Blue Mountains. You’ll love it.

going green turn your old mobile phones

into trees

Not-for-profits, MoblieMuster and Landcare Australia have partnered for the fifth year in a row to run the ‘Old phones, more trees’ campaign. The focus for this year’s campaign is on regenerating and protecting Australia’s beautiful coastlines. ‘Old phones, more trees’ will start on World Environment Day, 5th June 2011, and will run until the end of September, 2011. MobileMuster is calling on all Sutherland Shire locals to recycle their old mobile phones, batteries and accessories to help community groups plant up to 25,000 trees along Australia’s iconic coastlines. “MobileMuster is aiming to collect 250,000 handsets for recycling in this year Old phones, trees campaign; that’s approximately 40,000 kilograms of old phones plus their batteries and chargers. “Materials recovered from the phones will be used to make stainless steel, plastic fence posts, jewellery and even new batteries,” says MobileMuster Manager, Recycling Rose Read.

MobileMuster is the official recycling program of the mobile phone industry. All phones are recycled to the highest environmental standards; none are refurbished or resold. You can drop off your old mobiles and accessoires at a range of local retailers in the Sutherland Shire including Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, Dick Smith and Officeworks or pick up a free reply paid recycling satchel from Australia Post outlets and post them in before the end of September.

gardens on the go

Winter WOW Put the wow into your winter by adding a touch of colour both indoors and out.

For a quick solution pop down to your local garden centre and buy some ‘potted colour’ which is available all year round. These are mostly annuals that are meant to last just one season, occasionally they will contain longer lasting perennials. Buy a variety and make a mini potted garden to brighten an otherwise dull area of the garden or place on a table. For something more permanent in the garden, when selecting plants, don’t just buy for the flower, take note of the foliage as well. Select different coloured leaves and textures and you may want to consider the aroma too. Blending foliage ensures you have year round colour, and if the plant flowers that is an added bonus. Loropetalum ‘Plum Gorgeous’ makes a statement in the garden with its burgundy foliage and hot pink tasseled flowers. Combine it with silver foliage plants such as Senecio ‘Dusty Miller’. There are plenty of beautiful winter flower plants you can add to your garden to give it the wow factor.

When things get


When I think of winter many things come to mind, but frosty mornings are just one of them. I recently had the opportunity to work for several weeks at a lovely property in the Blue Mountains (Eagle View Escape) where I awoke each day to 5 degrees on the thermometer, and the grass outside being white and crunchy. Once the frost had lifted the day would present itself as crisp and clear, and the view over Lake Lyell was just magical. It got me to thinking though about frost damage. At such a property, a tree is more likely to be killed by frost if it is standing alone. However, when the trees are clumped together there is a natural protection and they survive the cold. This is a lot like people. None of us expect a difficult time (winter) to come - but we live in a fallen world and bad things can happen. To a person without godly friends, a time of frost can ‘kill’ them emotionally & spiritually. However, when a person is surrounded by

Loropetalum ‘Plum Gorgeous’

If you live in an apartment there are also many fabulous and hardy foliage plants that can be grown indoors such Dracaena marginata ‘Tricolour’ (tricolour meaning three colours) Placed in a colourful pot this plant will make a statement with its architectural form. So colour up your winter and visit your local garden centre, the visit alone will brighten your day. Karen Smith

Tax time is here: lodging it correctly It’s time to sit down and organise the information you require to lodge your annual income tax return. The ATO has been trying hard to simplify this process for individuals through online services including pre-filled taxation information when you lodge via “E-Tax”. Information gathered from the ATO’s data matching program such as PAYG payment summaries from employers, interest earned on bank accounts, dividends earned from shares and private health information is pre-filled into the tax return. This facility has the ability to catch unwary taxpayers who fail to disclose ALL appropriate information because they rely solely on the information the ATO has included. Information included is attached to your tax file number every time you quote it to a bank, a

company you have purchased shares in or an employer and they are required to provide it to the ATO. If this information has not been provided to the ATO by the time you prepare your taxation return the required data will not be available in E-tax and hence you may not disclose some taxable income. Ensure you have disclosed all your income. If you are not confident to properly lodge an income tax return, pay a registered tax agent to prepare one for you. The fee they charge is insignificant compared to the penalties and stress that comes with failing to complete a taxation return correctly. by Benjamin Johnston of Willett Johnston Partners

june and july

Katheryne is a qualified Astrologer/Psychotherapist with 17 years experience. She combines spiritual Astrology with Psychotherapy for a deeper understanding of life purpose and life situations.

ARIES Look for opportunities to increase your cash flow as friendly Jupiter visits this area of your chart early June. It is time to re evaluate the home scene in some way – an eclipse in July heightens the need for change.

TAURUS The first week of June a fortunate cycle begins, opportunities and growth a bound – make the most of this, you can take a risk now. Organise your finances – your confidence levels are on the rise so ask for what you want.

GEMINI A new moon eclipse (June 2) brings new ideas, all forms of communication are highlighted – expansion and movements are your priority now but don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.

CANCER A reflective time is indicated from July (new moon eclipse in cancer) memories may come from dreams but hold important messages for the future. Your social life gets a lift in June.

LEO A strong Mars energy combines with Mercury and Venus to energise your social relationships and communication. You confidently move forward with community or group activities.

VIRGO Expansion through travel or study is indicated – explore these options with confidence now. A new determination helps with career goals over these months.

LIBRA It is time to explore new relationships and daily routines. A restless energy may bring a need for new adventures and new meaning to your life. Any frustration needs an outlet now.

SCORPIO Early June is a busy time bringing more day to day responsibilities. Finances can take a turn for the better and a positive energy helps with partnerships. Creative outlets are good now.

SAGITTARIUS A full moon eclipse mid June brings a conflict of meaning and a choice may need to be addressed. How do you see yourself vs. how you want to grow? Be true to yourself.

CAPRICORN Mid July brings a Capricorn full moon which has you rethinking aspects of your roles and responsibilities in your working environment. Look for missed opportunities or redo something left undone.

AQUARIUS Home affairs are highlighted and expansion is indicated either through renovation, moving or extra people moving in. The home environment is important now so harness this energy to make positive changes.

PISCES Connect with your creative self over these months, having fun and enjoying the pleasures of life are fulfilling now. This is also a spiritual time so meditation, reading, gardening and solitary pursuits bring insight.

beauty lies not only within

The Big

Chill The cold months can play havoc with skin and often leave us with an itchy, dry and sensitive complexion, rather than a rosy winter glow! If this sounds familiar, fear not, a few simple seasonal adjustments are all that is needed to keep you looking and feeling healthy and beautiful… Hydration Plus – the biggest change most people will notice, regardless of skin type, is that their skin becomes incredibly dry and dehydrated. Dropping temperatures, indoor heating and lack of moisture in the air are the culprits…fight back by hydrating yourself from both the inside and out.  Rich in omega 3 and 6, Flaxseed Oil is said to assist in treating eczema and dry, flaky skin, essentially nourishing the body from the inside. It is widely available in either an oil or capsule form and is also known to strengthen nails and increase energy – take daily with breakfast to boost your skin defense against winter and start your day on a healthy note!  Equally important as being healthy on the inside is looking after skin from the outside in. Long hot showers and baths are a luxury for chilled bodies, but contribute heavily to dry skin by stripping natural oils. Counterbalance the damage done by skipping the soap and using a hydrating body wash instead. We love Dove’s Triple Moisturizing Body Wash $6.99

Sensitive Souls Rejoice – Decleor’s new Harmonie Calm Treatment Masque is relief in a tube! The brush-on applicator makes applying it a cinch – squeeze a generous layer onto the face, neck and décolletage while you’re relaxing in the bath, then simply rinse after 10 minutes to reveal calm, soft and deeply comforted skin. Ideal for those who suffer rosacea $90rrp

 While you may love the squeaky-clean feeling your foaming cleanser gives you during the warmer months, in winter your skin will love you back if you switch to a creamy version. Trilogy’s Cream Cleanser is a moisturizing creamy formula that effectively dissolves all makeup and build-up from the face and eyes. Fortified with nourishing Rosehip and Evening Primrose oils, it also includes Aloe Vera to soften and moisturize skin even further. $36rrp  Keep chapped lips at bay by using a protective lip treatment daily. An all-time favourite is Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm $6.95rrp, which has beeswax, coconut oil and lanolin to hydrate and protect lips from the elements. Peppermint Oil is also added to ensure lips are fresh and kiss-ready at any time.  Move it! While hitting the gym may be the last thing you feel like doing when it’s bleak outside, countless studies show that even mild exercise works to improve circulation, strengthen protective muscles (lessening the chance of strains and sprains) and also assists in beating the winter blues. Plus, there is no more effective way to warm up!
