Ryan the Negotiator will find the best new car deals for you

I’m always looking for a bargain, and cars are no exception. My son told me that for the best new car deals around, I should speak with Ryan The Negotiator, so that’s what I did. He’s so much better than dealerships and private sellers – he acts as a broker for people looking to buy a new car and save some money in the process. It’s pretty straightforward, all you need to do is tell him the make, model, year … Continue Reading →

China Golf Tour Holidays are the Best

We just organised a family holiday with China Golf Experience. It will be our third and for a family of golfers there is really nothing better. Both my sons have taken to the game with the same fervour my wife and I have. She normally organises the holidays but when it comes to the golfing, that’s very much my domain. I’d ordinarily be out of my element with hotels and flights and all that sort of stuff. I’d have her … Continue Reading →

Vertical gardens – more common than you think

I moved to Australia from Germany about 10 years ago now and I love it here. The climate, the people, the lifestyle, it’s all great. The one thing I do miss is a proper winter garden like the one I had back home – I’ve noticed that they’re not really all that common here. A winter garden is a small, semi-outdoor room at the back of the house which has glass walls and gives you the impression that you’re outdoors … Continue Reading →

The coolest mens jeans you’re ever going to find

I’ll admit it, I’m addicted to denim. I love how it looks, I love how it feels, I love everything about it. I even wear jeans when I’m just at home by myself, and my friends think it’s weird that I don’t hang out in tracksuit pants like most people. Because they look awful, that’s why. I think the only time I’m not in my trusty black jeans is when I have to wear a suit, or when it’s hot … Continue Reading →

The quickest and easiest rental bond loans

If there were ever issues stopping us from finding a suitable rental property to live in, we experienced them! My partner and I looked for 10 months before finding the home we live in together today. We had been together for 2 years and decided it was time to live under one roof together. Little did we realise, it would be a difficult task! We learnt that just a few minor details about our profile were making us fall behind … Continue Reading →

For high quality cross trainers, go straight to Lifespan Fitness

After months of coercion from my girlfriend, I’ve finally joined a gym. Not because I’m overweight or out of shape, but I am pretty unfit and she convinced me it was a great way to stay motivated and maintain an active lifestyle. I admit, it’s not that bad – at the very least, the pool and sauna has been great so far. The rest of the time I’ve got no idea what I’m doing, so I spoke with one of … Continue Reading →

For the nicest wine tours Melbourne has to offer, speak with Dreamscape Tours

I work in hospitality, at a European bistro in the city. It’s a nice little place and I’ve been here for about a year or so. Like most in the hospitality industry, we just celebrated Christmas in July and all the staff went down to the Macedon Ranges to visit some wineries courtesy of the owner of the bistro. The Macedon Ranges are renowned for their Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, and we were all chomping at the bit to get … Continue Reading →

Find Finger Food in Melbourne

My son got engaged last weekend to a beautiful girl and we couldn’t be prouder parents. Her family lives overseas so a lot of the responsibility for organising these things falls to us. We relish the opportunity to do things for them and were just so happy with how well everything worked out. Adam was very nervous all the way through but I told him not to worry about a thing. The Food Agency was a big help managing all … Continue Reading →

Looking for house and land packages in the south east suburbs? Give House and Land Packages Melbourne a call

Finding a new home is never easy. You want to live in a good area, close to shops and schools, a decent backyard, a reputable builder, and a home that suits your taste and lifestyle. After all, buying a home is the biggest investment you’ll most likely make in your whole life, so it’s got to be perfect. I myself have always loved living in the south east suburbs; they have everything I need and it’s only ever a half … Continue Reading →

Blinds for Bedrooms

It’s hard to go past blinds for bedrooms. They are simple and elegant, easy to keep clean and really functional. You can go with a plain block colour or try spicing up kids bedrooms with a mural blind. Blockout Blinds stock a great range and provide you with plenty of options. I’m in and out of the store on an almost weekly basis because they are great problem solvers. Whatever I’m dealing with from strange window shapes to noisy streets, … Continue Reading →
