bALANCE Kick-start your summer fitness routine with these easy steps and the new range of Connected Health products from Harvey Norman®, for a holistic approach to exercise, diet and your wellbeing.

GET CONNECTED WITH YOUR HEALTH When it comes to getting fit and healthy this summer, the best approach is to find the most harmonious balance for you. Choose a tailored workout routine that suits your body type, and a healthy, but enjoyable diet to complement your lifestyle. Paired with the right equipment from the expansive new Harvey Norman Connected Health collection, you’ll find achieving your fitness goals will come more easily.

STEP ONE: ENJOY REGULAR EXERCISE While keeping fit requires dedication to regular exercise, there are ways to help you stay motivated for those early morning runs or evening workouts. Try compiling a great playlist of energetic songs for your iPod, iPad or iPhone, and keep an eye on your progress with a heart rate monitor, activity tracker or weight scales from the Connected Health range. You’ll also find exercise bikes and machines in the range to suit any fitness level, making Harvey Norman the one-stop shop for all your home gym and personal fitness products.

STEP TWO: EAT A HEALTHY DIET Your diet plays a larger part in your ongoing health than exercise does, but it doesn’t mean you need to adhere to strict diets or deny yourself life’s little indulgences – simply choose lighter options and be mindful of portion sizes. A selection of bathroom and body composition scales from the Connected Health range will help you monitor changes in your body as your fitness improves. Everyone is different, so take the approach to food that makes the most sense to you and your lifestyle. Remember, a healthy diet is all about striking just the right balance.

The Secret to FIRMER, SMOOTHER, TIGHTER SKIN We all want smoother, tighter skin, and to firm jowls, under the eyes and stubborn body areas such as thighs, arms and stomach. We have several skin tightening systems, which are equally as effective although different in application. Thermage NXT, Re-Fit and Ozskin Max RF are radio frequency systems used to stimulate the production of new collagen, tighten skin and improve texture and elasticity. Each of these technologies use radio frequencies that target a range if tissue depths between the superficial layers of the skin and the hypodermis. This creates a stronger, more evenly distributed thermal response through all skin layers to tighten the skin. Thermage NXT is a single treatment, priced from $1,675. For Re-Fit and Max RF, three treatments recommended, from $235 per treatment.

cover story

Label tracks the rise of Taylor Swift from a talented young girl to her current position atop the music industry.


“The most talented people I know and some of the most fascinating people I've met were the most uncool kids in their school.� 8

label magazine SPRING 2013


verything happens for a reason. It is a mantra that American singing sensation Taylor Swift has followed for most of her life believing that everything, good or bad, is a lesson. The break-up of a relationship is the source for the lyrics to a song. Rejection by record companies when she was just starting out meant that she re-evaluated what she needed to do to be a success in the music industry. Having to put up with teasing, bullying and being humiliated at school led to the recognition that being different is a good thing even though at the time it was painful. Refreshingly normal, polite and well-adjusted but with a reputed bawdy sense of humour, Taylor Swift has quickly become the voice of her generation able to span such diverse genres as country, pop and rock, writing and performing songs that resonate with her audience. She was born on December 13th 1989 leading to a great love of the number 13, and raised in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania on of all things a Christmas tree farm. Her father, Scott Swift, is a fourth generation banker who worked for Merrill Lynch as a financial adviser. It was her mother, Andrea, who left work as a marketing executive to become a full time homemaker, who decided to christen Taylor with a gender neutral name, believing it would help should she decide to forge a business career later in life. Music became her obsession at 11 after seeing a TV special on superstar Faith Hill. “I saw how Faith went to Nashville so I made my own demo CD at home, pestered my parents to take me to Nashville, and then went up and down Music Row, handing my CD to the receptionists at all the record studios. I'd say, ‘Hey, I'm 11, and I want a record deal. Call me.’ I quickly realised that everyone in that town wanted to do what I wanted to do. So, I kept thinking to myself, I need to figure out a way to be different.” By chance a computer repairman showed her how to play three chords on a guitar, inspiring her to write her first song, “Lucky You”. Previously Taylor had won a national poetry contest with a poem entitled “Monster in My Closet” but now armed with the beginning of her musical talent she joined the two and her focus became song writing. “From those first three chords, I learned to play on a twelve-string, purely because some guy told me that I'd never be able to play it because my fingers were too small. Anytime someone tells me that I can't do something, I want to do it more.” By the time she had turned 14, her parents had realised that their daughter was determined to make it in the music industry and so moved to Nashville. A career was born. Overnight success is a very rare thing and because of her drive and taste in country music she was not treated well by her fellow students at school. “The kids at school thought it was weird that I liked country—they'd make fun of me. Junior high was actually sort of hard, because I got dumped by this group of popular girls. They didn't think I was cool or pretty enough, so they stopped talking to me. I played a hometown show about a year after my career took off, and they showed up, wearing my T-shirts and asking me to sign their CDs. It was bittersweet, because it made me realise that they didn't remember being so mean to me and that I needed to forget about it, too. And really, if I hadn't come home from school miserable every day, maybe I wouldn't have been so motivated to write songs. I should probably be thanking them! The most talented people I know and some of the most fascinating people I've met were the most uncool kids in their school.” Everything happens for a reason. In 2006, after mentoring and workshop sessions with seasoned musicians and writers Swift, signed a deal to record an album. She wrote three of the album's songs alone, including two singles, and co-wrote the remaining eight with other writers. The self titled

album, ‘Taylor Swift’ was released October 2006. It was described by the New York Times as “a small masterpiece of pop-minded country, both wide-eyed and cynical, held together by Ms. Swift's firm, pleading voice.” The success was due in part to her talent as much as her drive and determination to do everything in her power to get her album heard and played. “My mother and I used to stuff the CD singles into envelopes to send to radio,” she explained. In all Taylor spent six months on an extended promotional tour, even baking cookies and painting canvases to gift to radio station programmers who played her music. The tour included multiple TV appearances and in what was considered a revolutionary move for country music, she using her networking skill as a child of the internet to build a fan base via Myspace. That initial successful album has been followed by three more – Fearless, Speak Now and Red – each released two years apart. Her fame crossed over into mainstream media when in 2009 she was interrupted by Kayne West during an acceptance speech for winning the Best Female Video at MTV awards. Kayne believed that his friend Beyoncè was more deserving of the accolade and marched on stage to say as much in a tasteless rant. The outpouring of support Taylor received, the way she dealt with it and the subsequent coverage only served to increase her profile. Again everything happens for a reason! To date Taylor’s success has been extraordinary. From that initial home CD she has now amassed sales well in excess of 25 million albums, 75 million song downloads and with total career earnings of more than $170 million. Her ability to transpose feelings and fleeting feelings into music has drawn comparisons to Janis Ian but Taylor does it in a more approachable way. Besides love and romance, the subject of her writing includes parent-child relationships, alienation, friendships, and career ambitions. The songs talk to the very heart of teenage anxiety and with her good looks and genuine down home, country girl appeal, it is little wonder that she has become such a superstar. She has been described as the best ‘people person’ since Bill Clinton who would have succeeded no matter what field she chose. Her millions of fans are simply pleased that she articulated the hopes, heartache and anxieties of their generation. Taylor Swift’s ‘Red’ tour includes 64 dates across North America before arriving in Australia in December this year. For further information or tour dates visit or

local lives

simon Bennett Husband, father, triathlete, community charity worker and lawyer. With a pharmacist father and a mother who was a nurse, it is safe to presume that a medical career was at short odds for Simon Bennett. “I was at TSS in grade 10 and a pilot course was started in legal studies. I loved it because it really appealed to the logical side of my brain.” Sitting in his office at OMB Solicitors in Southport, Simon is that rare person who looks forward every day to going to work and dealing with the issues that cross his desk. “I’m someone who loves to know the answer to questions and is endlessly curious so the further I go in law the more I realise how little I know.” After school he attended Bond University in 1989 on a part Rugby scholarship. “I don’t consider myself to be a brilliant sportsman but I played many different sports and picked up most of them fairly easily. My position was fullback in Rugby Union at school which I played for Bond Uni and then also first grade. After I graduated from Bond I completed a post-graduate degree at QUT. My first job as a lawyer was with Robert Lehn who was my mentor. He was fantastic to work with because he taught me so much and was so encouraging.” From there Simon joined O’Keefe & Mahoney which in turn progressed to his becoming a partner in 1999 and OMB was born. “My area is property law and I’m recognised by the Law Society of Queensland as an Accredited Specialist in Property Law. It was an incredibly tough thing to pass. Out of the 70 lawyers who sat for the exams only 14 passed.” All work and no play make Simon a dull boy and away from work he has taken up triathlon. “I do like most sports and because my father was doing triathlons I had a go. The fact that if you get bored doing one aspect of training you can switch to another really appeals to me.” As a self declared ‘A’ type personality he threw himself into the training and competition and was rewarded by making the Australian

age team in the 35-39 years section. “In all I was selected for four world titles in Europe and North America including the one that gave me the greatest pride which was competing on the Gold Coast.” Another aspect of Simon’s multi-dimensional life is his work as the chairman of the Gold Coast Community Fund. “After my wife Kate and I were named as Gold Coast Ambassadors, I realised that the contacts we had could be put to good use. My life has been very fortunate and what I really love about the GCCF is that the people, charities or organisations that benefit are all local. More than 99% of every dollar we raise is given back to the community. In the past 10 years that’s more than $1.2 million and with an outstanding committee that is something that gives us all great pride.” For all those achievements the one thing that is sacrosanct is time with the family. “A normal day starts for me at 5am when I train. Then work begins at 7.30am and the sole focus is dealing with all that work entails. However when I go home that’s family time and nothing is more important. My children Zoe and Bailey with Kate are everything and on the weekends that’s my time with them.” Then, interview done, it was time to head to the pool for some training.. Anything worth doing is worth doing well and Simon does it better than most.

Talia Munro The Element of fusing fashion and functionality. Tall, blonde and beautiful, Talia Munro has the stature and presence to be noticed in any crowd. That presence is even more pronounced when she is draped in the creations she has chosen in stocking her Element boutiques at Marina Mirage and The Oracle. Born and bred on the Gold Coast, Talia grew up surrounded by fashion as a child. Her mother Jan was the catalyst behind her immersion into the business having five stores on the Gold Coast including manufacturing her own label for over 20 years. “Mum was a terrific mentor because I learnt all aspects of the industry from a very young age including working in the stores on weekends and then during school holidays. She taught me many aspects of retail operation. Out of all of those the two most significant are that it is important to work with people with whom you have a good rapport and you must enjoy what you do.” The notion that ‘Element’ is a family business has helped the growth of Element because mother and daughter support each other on many levels. “She and I have very similar taste, so it makes the decisions we are making regarding stocking certain lines and the running of the business itself very easy. We complement each other on so many different aspects that it gives us freedom when we travel separately knowing the business has been left in good hands.” The Element story began in 2002 when Talia, then 22 years old, opened her first store. “It was my most memorable fashion moment and the beginning of the Element name. It was in the Aria building in Broadbeach with our own cafe/bar adjoining the fashion store. We had great events and parades in those days and I was so proud to be running my own successful businesses.” In a business subject to change in styles and direction and challenge of the online world, Talia has managed to forge successful and ongoing fashion outlets that are a testament to her ability to stock

what the public wants. “When buying for the stores I pick pieces that I personally love and would wear but am always conscious of how it will merchandise. I think we have maintained our edge with such a lengthy trading history by keeping to our own style. Of course we have very loyal customers who we are very mindful of and always strive to provide a wide range of labels for all ages. The stores deal with tourists and locals alike so the feedback we get is always taken on board so we can continue to give our customers what they want.” In her shops surrounded by so many stunning designs Talia does profess to have a particular favourite. “Our own label ‘Elila’, which is named after my beautiful three year old daughter, is the most popular and best selling label we have. ‘Twin Set’ by Simona Barberi from Italy is another with great cut and style. As for jeans, the best on the market at the moment would have to be ‘Robins’ jeans and the new reversible ‘Blu-Lab’ jeans, both from L.A. Women will be amazed at how good they can look in these well cut jeans.” For someone so constantly immersed in the day to day fashion world what advice does Talia have for those seeking style advice? “I think it’s important for people to understand their body shape and to develop your own individual look. It’s not always necessary to follow trends.” Elementary advice from someone who really knows!

Behind the brand Anthony Cuthbertson’s talent has taken him on a fashion house tour from the UK to Australia. Now Creative Director at David Lawrence, Anthony divulges his inspiration, process to production and the significance of luxury. Your resume holds the names of some of the world’s most prominent fashion houses; at which do you believe you grew the most as a designer? I think I grew the most as a designer at Max Mara and Daks as I did so much travel with those brands. It inspired me to create specifically for the runway in Milan. As a UK native, how does designing for an Australian audience differ to that of European clientele? The weather is a key difference, I need to create collections that have distinctive seasonal looks but are appropriate for the lifestyle. The light in Australia is so bright so I need to really focus on the use of colour. Which architectural style has played the biggest role in your design inspiration? My work is really inspired by clean lines and sculptural shapes; the Bauhaus movement has really been a major influence. The work of Harry Seidler since I have moved to Australia has been on my mind when designing the David Lawrence collections. How have you evolved David Lawrence as Creative Director? I have really taken the brand and customer on a journey in the past couple of years as well as developing a DL signature and brand values that are a focus for the future. I have also concentrated on delivering a lifestyle for the customer that is modern and directional. Luxury and quality is important to David Lawrence. The DL Initiative collaboration with Fitted for Work is set to aid many disadvantaged women in dressing appropriately for job interviews. What drove this partnership? I was really passionate about this collaboration because David Lawrence is a brand for all women and we wanted to support such a great project. This was the perfect collaboration and gave me the opportunity to design such a great versatile dress for all women. Why do you believe a little black dress can go such a long way 24

label magazine spring 2013

for The DL Initiative? The black dress is the perfect item in any woman’s wardrobe that you can dress up or down and accessorise with pops of colour for work or social. The DL black dress with its signature seaming detailing really is a dress to empower all women. What motivated the launch of DL Atelier? I really wanted to create a new luxury level to the DL offer and create investment items that can be mixed back with the main line collection. Atelier is my laboratory of new ideas and a collection that is very fashion forward in its mood and styling. Who is the DL Atelier woman? The DL Atelier woman understands fashion. She loves luxurious, high quality fabrics and cuts. The collection is really about attitude and pushing the boundaries, a woman with confidence. I am very inspired by the style of Carine Roitfeld. The fabrics used in DL Atelier are particularly exquisite. How do you choose your materials? I start the process in Paris at Première Vision. This gives me great insight into what is new in the market. Then I take vintage fabrics and have them redeveloped to create modern textiles to be used in my collections. I also look at the touch and feel of the materials to create items that are luxury. What Spring styles are too fabulous to go without? I would have to say the dress as it’s also one of my favourite items to design in the collection. This season I have created a range of styles that are bold and confident in amazing digital prints as well as new shapes such as the neoprene bonded wasp dress. When you are not at the helm of David Lawrence, what is your perfect day off? I never really stop; even on my day off I am taking in everything around me. In galleries, restaurants, even in the park which is a great place to rest the brain and relax. If the sun is shining then it’s the perfect day!

Celebrating more than 23 years of making women feel beautiful I’m celebrating almost a ¼ of a century in my fashion business... I see something beautiful in every woman I meet. Every woman is different... she has different needs and specific looks that work for her... alongside looks that don’t. Fashion and designing for YOU is about creating what IS you, not what’s the flavour of the season. At BLISS FASHION EMPORIUM we don’t follow WE LEAD, utilising my Italian background and knowledge of timeless, sensual anti-ageing clothing. Our clothing brings you happiness, self-esteem, compliments and a romantic energy that radiates love as you transform in our garments.

stylebathing in south beach A flock of bronzed bikini-laden beauties once again flew south to Miami for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim at The Raleigh Hotel for five days of beachside fabulous. Designers graced the poolside catwalk with a dazzling array of colour and some saucy cuts. ROXY celebrated 25 years of swimwear with the kick-off party and ROXY Pop Surf collection, setting up the week for fresh, flirty fun. So, what do you need to be on trend on the sand this summer? Plunging one-pieces from bedazzled to black were a favourite, as well as pastel patterns, feminine frills and texture, texture, texture. Strange tan lines will be popular amongst sun-lovers, with both Nicolita and Mara Hoffman continuing the cut-out craze. Poko Pano and Sauvage championed the classic bikini with exotic patterns and bold brights. Dolores Cortes flirted with futuristic fabrics while Suboo gave us ombre with a touch of illusion. But remember, it is not just about the swimsuit; a poolside ensemble is the key to acing the look. CM Cia.Maritima and A.Che featured floaty cover-ups to take you from the water to the beach bar, flaunting your figure for admiration along the way.

Stem CELLS Dr. John Flynn talks about Stem Cells and their use in treating different problems.


t’s hard to imagine that within the walls of Dr. John Flynn’s Cosmedic and Skin Clinic in Southport a quiet revolution in treatment is occurring with the use of stem cells. “Firstly I have to explain that there are two major sources of adult stem cells. Those which are from bone marrow and are hard to get to and those extracted from your own fatty tissue, usually your stomach or buttocks. It is important to stress that these are your own stem cells not cells from someone else. Also it is important to realise these are not embryonic cells from an outside source. We have the ability at Cosmedic to utilise those stem cells harvested from your fatty tissue, or adipose. After the fat is extracted we concentrate, process and activate the stem cells and then inject the areas that need help,” explains Dr. Flynn. For most people that area would be joints – knees, ankles, shoulders – that have been affected by arthritis or wear and tear. “The joint is housed in a protective sac which tends to naturally limit the normal repair capacity, and the injected stem cells are hugely anti-inflammatory which leads to less pain and a much better life. It is better to repair the soft tissue in a joint but the ramifications of the ongoing research mean that there will be enormous benefits for people with MS or diabetes in the future. There is also the ability to inject stem cells directly into the heart of a heart attack survivor to help repair the heart muscle. While stem cell treatment has been around for more than 50 years, the understanding and benefits of the treatment are becoming increasingly better understood and utilised.” The most common application for stem cell use has been in degenerative knee joints and animal studies and the limited human trials conducted show a remarkable potential for pain relief and return to mobility. Stem cells however do not replace the need for joint surgery and they do not correct for instability and so they need to be utilised in conjunction with orthopaedic supervision and a good physio-therapy rehabilitation programme. The work at the Southport Day Hospital has been done in collaboration with Australia’s foremost stem cell scientist Prof. Richard Boyd of Monash University. A Stem Cell laboratory has been established at Cosmedic and Skin Clinic to harvest, cultivate and deliver stem cells in a variety of medical indications for use in various treatments. As with all discoveries there are other uses for the harvested stem cells. “On the cosmetic side the use can include replacing breast tissue after cancer treatment or in breast enhancement. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is added to the stem cells producing a wonderful healing enhancer meaning the recovery time for patients is much faster. The benefit of combining the two is that the combination is so much better than each element on its own. When used after a laser treatment or a face lift, the treatment can lead to enhancement in collagen production, circulation and general physiology which in turn means a quicker recovery.” The real advantage of stems cells is that they reproduce into the different types of damaged tissue helping to heal and stimulate the 38

label magazine spring 2013

repair process after injury. The stem cells from the body’s own fat cells are inactive and not naturally available by the body for repair in this situation. The harvest process is in effect a wakening from hibernation for the cells. In the case of the most commonly treated joint, the knee, the treatments can be beneficial in delaying the more severe treatments up to and including knee replacements. “We’ve found that the best results with knees are when we have a series of treatments rather than injecting it all at once.” A recognised pioneer in the field of using adult stem cells in aesthetic medicine, Dr. John Flynn is enthused about the uses for this increasingly rich vein of medicine “The field of regenerative medicine and techniques using the patient’s own stem cells is an area of great promise with many effective applications,” he says. “Besides knees and other joints, inflammatory conditions such as acne and dermatitis can also be treated. Whilst isolating the stem cells takes just a few short hours, rigorous safety checking of the material takes another several days. At this point, the cells can be cryopreserved – or frozen – to be used by the patient sometime in the future, or reinjected into the patient immediately.” The cells Dr Flynn extracts are referred to as adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRCs). A wealth of peerreviewed clinical data supports their therapeutic use in a number of areas of medicine, including cosmetic procedures. ADRCs are being used, for example, in lieu of synthetic fillers for facial rejuvenation; as cell-enriched fat grafts in breast reconstruction following lumpectomy and mastectomy; and as natural breast augmentation filler in lieu of silicone implants. If you would like to learn more about stem cells or any of the many procedures at Cosmedic and Skin Clinic, call 5555 7788 and learn the facts without the exaggeration and hype.

Spring Bloom A fruity floral chypre based around the intense alliance of tiger orchid and patchouli, Jimmy Choo’s Exotic is a heady, sexy scent designed for a strong but playful woman with an alluring magnetism.

Jean Paul Gaultier’s legendary Classique has been rebranded while staying faithful to its original composition as a sensual, sexy scent blending rose and orange blossom with spicy notes of ginger and vanilla.

The House of Balmain has reawakened a sleeping beauty named Ivoire, one of the most sought after perfumes of the eighties. It has been updated with inflections of orange and mandarin with violet leaves.

Flower by Kenzo is a celebration of women with a signature as feminine as it is luminous. Crisp and sensual, juicy raspberry and sparkling pink pepper enfold the wearer with a wisp of magnolia and gardenia.

The different fruity facets of summer have been combined to create L’Eau d’Issey Summer Eau de toilette. The tangy notes of pink grapefruit and litchi have been combined with passion fruit and guava.

Red, the colour of blazing femininity, is the perfect fit for L’Acquarossa by Fendi. The heart of the perfume is the scent of the Lantana Flower, perfect for any woman who does not shy away from attention.

Opening with a bright burst of orange blossom, Elie Saab Le Parfum is a fresh, floral fragrance exalting in its feminity. Think the pale light of morning and the soft flow of a beautiful silk dress.

New from Givenchy, Ange ou Démon Le Secret Eau de Toilette is an ode to light-heartedness and love, an elegant chypre fruity floral with gourmand top notes and seductive middle notes.

Bulgari Omnia Crystalline features tones of citrus and bamboo combined with lotus flower, white peony and lily of the valley. Capturing the essence of frosted flowers, it will leave you feeling classy and sophisticated.

The finish is long with a pleasant savoury aftertaste. Very delicious now and should age gracefully for the next 6-8 years. RRP $79.99.

Glass bubbles Spring is here and what better time to check out Glass Dining + Lounge Bar.


pring has sprung and after Billy and I enjoyed a wonderful break in America we are back more enthused than ever about what Glass Restaurant + Lounge Bar has to offer. Our new menu by executive chef David Pommier has been warmly received by regulars and new diners alike. Particular dishes to receive the biggest raves have been the Four Pin Lamb Rack with chat potatoes and grilled zucchini. Another has been the crispy skin ‘Chinook’ Salmon Fillet served with warm Jerusalem artichoke and truffle tartufo salad. The vegetarian offering of Zucchini Flowers stuffed with Meredith Goat’s Cheese has also proved to be a real winner. Of course one of these columns would not be complete without a bit of name dropping. All of Australia is in love with Pink. The hugely popular singer snuck in for a quiet dinner with husband Carey Hart and thankfully was left to enjoy the night without being interrupted by fans. She must have said some complimentary things because a large number of her crew also came down to enjoy some down time with us. One thing that did become extremely popular during winter was our $40 two course lunch menu special. It is the perfect solution for those wanting to have a quick bite in fantastic surroundings. The options are plentiful and if you want an entree or main or main and dessert there are a lot of choices there to tempt you. Another innovation that is attracting the crowds is our Sunday afternoon relaxathon. With perfect Gold Coast spring weather, live music and great drinks and the tapas selections, Glass is becoming a favourite 52

venue to wind down at the end of the weekend. Our new cocktail list is simply outstanding. I have three suggestions for those of you like to discover new things – try the Chachi Sangria, the Kiwi Chilli or maybe the Mango Margarita. I may be biased but they are quite truly delicious. The wonderful Matt Hollywood, who is entertainment personified, performed at Glass for the Shave Shop Australia Awards night. He is such a knockout of an entertainer that we are looking to stage more shows with the super talented Matt in the next few months. As ever Glass has hosted many functions of late but one that did stand out was Red for Ryven. Ryven Harris is a 5 month old Gold Coast boy who currently needs a bone marrow transplant to survive and the whole TSS community have got behind this cause as Ryven’s parents are both TSS Teachers. It’s always great to be a part of such wonderful community support. Everyone loves to hear good news about themselves and the team at Glass Restaurant + Lounge Bar is no different. We are over the moon about a cracker of a review on the Australian Good Food Guide website, It makes all the hard work worthwhile when you get such positive feedback. You can also go on there and do your own review or vote for Glass as a sign of your support. May your glass always be half full,

bali dreaming Elizabeth Austin finds a little piece of heaven at the W Retreat & Spa in Bali.

n a very short space of time, the island of Bali has become the go to place in S.E. Asia for Australian tourists. Close to 700,000 visited the ‘Island of the Gods’ in 2012 enjoying the eclectic mix of culture, surfing, luxury hotels, bars and shopping in an easy to get to destination on our Northern doorstep. Thirty years ago the main industry was agriculture but today tourism has transformed the island making the two million tourists who visit annually the main ‘crop’ for the local economy. The W Retreat & Spa Bali is one of the best examples of how the island has changed, providing a level of sophistication and comfort for the most discerning of visitors. Situated looking over the sea at Seminyak, it is perfectly located to be the jump off point for further adventures or a home away from home where you can relax, unwind and let the staff take care of your every need. Recently awarded as the Best Resort Hotel 2013 in the Indonesia Hotel Awards and the Best Hotel in Bali 2013 by DestinAsian Magazine, the W Retreat & Spa Bali is obviously doing it consistently well in attention to detail and customer service.

Everyone has different ideas about how they want to spend their holiday. Here you can head outside for your daily dose of sun, sand, sea and surfing or if you want to lose yourself amid the diverse heritage of arts, music, dances and crafts, you’ll find yourself right in the heart of it all at W Retreat & Spa Bali. The array of activities is endless. Go paragliding off breathtaking cliffs, or take the plunge with the adrenaline rush of bungee-jumping and sky-diving. If you just can’t get enough of the water, the surf is always up or you can make a splash with kayaking and white-water rafting. Trek across mountains terraced with paddy fields or go underwater and explore this side of the life aquatic on a diving or snorkelling expedition. If you have your game on, tee off at one of the island’s gorgeous golf courses or try your hand at sport fishing. Dining and shopping are also just steps from this extraordinary tropical setting. As part of the chicest enclave in Bali, the fun doesn’t stop when the sun sets because the nightlife scintillates, allowing your days and nights to revolve around an ever-evolving mix of excitement of your choosing. Stay in or head out, it is your holiday and your call. Resort living has always been about the guest. Here you can head to W Beach where Beach Ambassadors make sure you never have to lift a finger or toe. Or head to the award winning AWAY® spa, where natural healing therapies restore your senses to balance your rest and relaxation. If something more strenuous is on your mind, SWEAT®, is a state-of-the-art fitness centre where you can wake up with morning yoga, work out or escape away on a midnight run. Inspired by tropical scenes of Indonesian rice fields, the ultra cool WET® pool overlooks the spectacular vista that is Seminyak Beach with some of the best views of the famous Bali sunset, all from the comfort of a deckchair or while relaxing in the water. The poolside area also features chic double daybeds and hand or foot massages if required. A hands-on deck service which provides everything from sun care amenities, fresh towels, snacks, cocktails, frozen treats, games to cleaning your sunglasses are all part of the service. For the little ones, a 0.6-meter splash pool beckons with an endless array of water toys and floaters for maximum enjoyment. The W Retreat & Spa Bali also has available more than 50 tour packages covering Bali and nearby Lombok and Java islands. Head out on traditional trails or off the beaten path and discover the many faces, landscapes, histories and cultures of Indonesia. If you are a first time visitor or have visited many times, Bali is so much more than you could imagine and the W Retreat & Spa Bali is the perfect start point for the holiday of your lifetime.

The stun ning Kar ma Kandara Beach C lub.

Bali High Australians love Bali and here is a quick guide of places to see and be seen in the Island of the Gods. Where to play Bali is a place to set your own pace, be it lazing by a pool and raising a glass or heading out for any number of adventures on water or land. Great restaurants, both cheap and expensive, abound and then there is the ever popular shopping. • Ku De Ta: On the beach in Seminyak is another great place to watch the sun go down. All sorts of people head there but the prices are comparable with Australia. Dress code applies after 4pm. • Karma Kandara Beach Club: Pay the day fee and travel down the cliff face by open air escalator and laze on gorgeous day beds with pristine white sand, spa treatments, drink and food service.

Don’t miss... Something for everyone is what Bali offers and while it has a reputation for raging and partying all night long, there are places to see and things to do apart from a crowded disco. From nature walks to white water rafting, kayaking, kite surfing and even temple tours, the list of available activities is limited only by time and budget.

Where to eat Whether you want to indulge in street eats or a fine upscale restaurant, the choice in and around Seminyak is staggering. Sitting watching the sunset with friends or loved ones, clutching a cocktail before heading out to dinner is one of the reasons you came to Bali in the first place. Here are a few recommendations you can trust. • Sarong: Enjoy a leisurely dinner in an outdoor lounge or an informal dining area adjacent to the bar. It is a great meeting place with superb cocktails and world-class wines. Open evenings only. • La Lucciola: If you’re really craving some quality Italian fare this is the place to go. Again right on the beach with two levels under a thatched roof. Booking is advised especially for a sunset view. • Grocer & Grind: A great place to enjoy breakfast or brunch and they make amazing organic coffee. There’s also a deli which supplies a lot of the fresh gourmet foods that you’ve been missing.

• Rock Bar: Get there at least ½ hour before it opens as there are always queues. It takes the concept of ‘on the rocks’ to a new level as it is perched 14 metres above Jimbaran Bay – simply amazing.

• Potato Head: It’s all about food, music, art and fashion and blending daytime beach party, upscale restaurant, and sophisticated nightlife. There are three restaurants so there is truly something for all.

• Bodyworks Day Spa: Has a great reputation built on the delivery of high standard massages and beauty treatments with premium customer service and traditional Indonesian healing techniques.

• Sea Circus: It’s neither a circus nor on the sea but this unique eatery is a combination coffee shop, restaurant, bar and den. The owner is Australian and takes his coffee very, very seriously.

Are you worked to the

bone? Your safety and security at work are important. Lysa Jamieson discusses your work place rights.


ou need to keep food on the table, a roof over your head, pay the rent or mortgage plus find money for school fees, insurance, registration and the list goes on. Your health and your ability to earn an income are arguably a person’s greatest assets. What would you do if you lost the ability to earn an income? Your ability to work and earn an income is what keeps most of us going. If you are injured at work, a place that should be safe, then you may not be able to provide for yourself and your family. Traditionally, injuries at work have been physical injuries. We’ve all heard about these – broken bones, soft tissue injuries, sprains and strains. With everyone’s lives becoming busier and more stressful we are now seeing more and more the rise of psychological injuries in the workplace. Employers must establish and maintain a working environment that is safe and without risks to health. This includes the promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical, mental and social well-being of all workers. An employer owes a statutory general duty to cover both physical and mental health as well as safety. The rise in claims for psychological injuries seems to be emanating from conflicts with supervisors and peers. Among the many reasons for these conflicts are bullying and harassment, poor management practices, violence and threats of

violence in the workplace, lack of organisational support, poorly managed organisational change and a poor physical workplace such as over-crowding, excessive noise and poor ergonomics. If you are feeling stressed, mentally unwell, harassed or bullied, tell your employer. Give them the opportunity to make changes in the workplace. If your doctor gives you time off work as a result of the above tell your employer why you were on sick leave. If your employer doesn’t know what is going on then they cannot make changes. If your employer is on notice that your health is affected by what is going on in the workplace and they don’t make changes then they may be liable to compensate you for your injuries. If you have suffered an injury in the workplace, be it a physical injury or a psychological injury, you must report it to your employer immediately as you may lose the right to claim or make it an unnecessarily complicated process. If you are an employer and any of the above is occurring in your workplace, you risk statutory fines, possible imprisonment and common law claims from injured employees. You need to make changes. Whether you are an employer or an employee and you need advice on any of the above or if you need help in defending or making a claim, be sure to call OMB Solicitors.
