Benefits of Personalised Robes

You may be stressed when you’re looking for bridesmaids gifts before your wedding day arrive, after all, what could you possibly buy them that would ever be enough to repay them for their time and support? However, there is one option that more and more brides-to-be are discovering as the best gift for bridesmaids and that is bridesmaid pyjamas or bridesmaid robes. Here are a few of the many benefits associated with choosing a personalised robe for your bridal party.


Rather than buy bridesmaids gifts that are generic – such as soaps, gift hampers, and vouchers, you can opt for something that no one else will have. Personalised robes are a unique gift into which you’ve put a lot of time. What’s more, it’s a reminder for years to come for your best friends that they were an integral part of your big day.


As you know, preparing for your wedding is expensive. In fact, according to the Bride to Be Magazine, the average Australian wedding now costs around $65,000 – a significant increase on even just a few years ago. With this in mind, it’s always in your best interests to hunt for bridesmaids gifts that won’t break the bank, but will be enjoyed all the same. Personalised robes fit that bill perfectly. Even though your bridal party will adore them, they are a far cheaper alternative to other bridesmaids gifts on the market.

7 Tips For Brides To Prepare Perfectly For Your Initial Wedding Dress Consultation

Few events in our lives bring as much excitement and anticipation as our wedding day, and this is especially the case for brides as they make plans for their big day such as choosing their bridal gown, deciding on who their bridesmaids are going to be, and discussing with their future spouse where they are going on honeymoon, for example.

It is the first of those three examples, choosing a bridal gown or wedding dress, which will doubtless occupy the most time and thoughts of many brides-to-be. Given this is a dress that will likely only be worn for one day, albeit one of the most important days of their life, this is what causes brides to rightly want to ensure that they make the correct choice.

Part of the process of choosing a wedding dress will be the first wedding dress consultation appointment with the company chosen to make and supply the wedding dress. For many brides reading this, that appointment is more nerve-racking than any job interview and many of you may genuinely panic about it.

Anxiety need not reach those levels, and whilst some nervous excitement is to be expected, there are ways to ensure that you remain calm enough to listen during the consultation and more importantly, make decisions about your wedding dress with a clear and calm mind.


7 Myths About Laser Eye Surgery Which Are Completely False

One of the irritations that a laser eye surgery consultant or a cataract eye surgeon have to deal with is dispelling myths that a patient have read and subsequently believed. Some of these myths are enough to make patients far more fearful and doubting of laser eye surgery and its ability to improve their eyesight than they need be.

Although millions of people have had successful laser eye surgery and all the surgeons who carry it out are extremely skilled and experienced professionals, having a doubt placed in one’s mind due to falsehoods is what makes many candidates for laser eye surgery doubtful at one end of the scale and downright terrified at the other. So, to help them, and possibly yourself, here are seven laser eye surgery myths you can completely dismiss as false.

Myth #1 – Laser Eye Surgery Is Extremely Painful: Invariably this is untrue. Your surgeon will apply eye drops to numb your eye, so you feel no pain during the procedure. After surgery, there may be some irritation, but this can be combatted with painkillers and any discomfort usually subsides within a couple of days.


My Rash

What’s My Rash?

Unless you’re a medical professional, you may have a hard time determining whether your strange rash is a health concern or nothing to worry about. Rashes can be all manner of things – from bites and allergies to skin sensitivities and fungal infections, so it’s essential not to jump to conclusions.

The following information can help you to narrow down potential rash causes, but it’s by no means an extensive list. The best way to diagnose a rash or skin irritation is by making an appointment with your GP.

Flea Bites

Flea bites are usually quite easy to spot, because they look less like a rash, and more like a cluster of spots. In many cases, they frequently appear around your feet and lower legs, and they have a round halo around a red bump that’s quite itchy.

Unlike other health issues and rash types, flea bites become itchy almost immediately after they happen. They are also present on the legs and feet because of where the fleas typically live or feed. Often, flea bites go away without treatment, but antihistamines and anti-itch creams may prove useful. You must also address the cause of the fleas to prevent more bites in the future.


Alcohol Withdrawal

What You Need to Know About Alcohol Withdrawal

Alcohol is the most widely used drug in Australia. It’s so common that many people wouldn’t class it as a drug or understand that it can be both addictive and harmful. In reality, excessive alcohol consumption can lead to alcoholism and even the need for drug rehab.

Many people who consume alcohol to excess will reach a point where they realise they have a problem. However, some would naturally assume that, like cigarettes, you can quit “cold turkey” without there being any real side effects. Quitting alcohol cold turkey can be extremely dangerous, and the withdrawal symptoms are very real.

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms can differ, depending on whether you’ve been on a bender for a few weeks, or you’re a long-term drinker. Symptoms can present themselves even within a few hours of your last drink and can continue for days – or even weeks.

Cravings, depression, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, and mood swings are all some of the most common side effects as your body comes to terms with what it’s experiencing and attempts to flush out the toxins. Appetite loss, nausea, vomiting, headaches, sleeplessness, and nightmares, are relatively common too.


Weight Loss

Excellent Exercise for Weight Loss

There is no single answer for the best way to lose weight. Weight loss is a unique process that’s individual to everyone who embarks on that journey. However, it’s helpful to get a fair idea of exercise types that can both help with weight loss and improve your fitness. Here are a few of the many options you may like to push to the top of your list.

Cardio Exercises

Cardio exercise is one of the most effective ways to lose weight. It’s also wide-ranging. You can jump on a rowing machine, go swimming or cycling, or even use a jump rope. The key to a successful cardio fitness routine is enjoyment. Choose a form of cardio that you love, or that you can do with friends to make it a social engagement. You can then benefit from a better chance of that weight loss you desire.


Walking is one of those unintentional fitness gems that can be effective without you even realising it. You can fit it into your everyday workday by taking the stairs instead of the lift, and it’s ideal for helping you to keep weight off.


Benefits of Sleep Dentistry

It’s not uncommon to feel scared, anxious, or nervous when you visit your dentist. Sometimes, those fears are limited only to the waiting room. Other times, they are exacerbated by the short trip from that room to the dentist chair. If you suffer from anxiety, fear, or worry about dental procedures, then you’re not alone. Many people put off trips to the dentist because they don’t feel comfortable or safe.

Fortunately, there are ways to still get the dental care you need, but without all the worry, anxiety, and fear that can go along with it. Sleep dentistry is a popular option for many, with various “sleep” options to put you at ease.

You can be entirely asleep, partially, or aware but relaxed. Any of these options – with oral sedatives, IV sedatives, or gas, could work for you. Read on to discover many of the benefits of cosmetic procedures done by dentists.

Your Entire Body Is Relaxed

If you’re a bundle of nerves in the dentist’s chair, and it’s affecting your ability to see your dentist as often as you should, then sleep dentistry might be for you. Depending on the sleep method, you may notice that your entire body feels relaxed and at ease. As a result, the treatment can be far more comfortable, and can even happen quicker than you anticipated.


Invisalign vs. Braces

Invisalign vs. Braces

If your dentist recommends braces but offers two choices: traditional or Invisalign, then how do you know which is the best one for you? Both traditional braces and Invisalign have their pros and cons.

Traditional braces have metal brackets, wires, and rubber bands. They are more discreet now than ever before and have a long history of success. Invisalign, on the other hand, has been around since 1999, but are nearly invisible and are customised for each person.

The Pros of Traditional Braces

Traditional braces will work tirelessly to improve your smile. You wear them around the clock, and they are permanent until your dentist removes them. They are also exceptionally effective at fixing complex dental problems.

The Pros of Invisalign

There are many reasons why you may prefer Invisalign over more traditional braces. The first is how invisible they are. Even though traditional braces are now available in a ceramic material and look sleek to suit your smile, they stand out. Invisalign, on the other hand, is nearly invisible.

You can also remove them at a moment’s notice to indulge in treats that you may not be able to have if you wear traditional braces. They are not suitable for complex dental problems, however. If you need to fix back teeth or rotate teeth, then your dentist may recommend traditional braces instead.


Dental Filling

Filling You in About Fillings

When your dentist tells you that you need a filling, you may begin to feel a little nervous, on edge, or maybe even scared. Misinformation and fear of the dentist can create panic in your mind unnecessarily. However, the truth is, fillings are a minimally-invasive dental procedure that can be started and finished before you know it. Below, you can find all the information you need to know about getting a filling to put your mind at ease.

Why do I Need a Filling?

When your tooth or teeth are decayed, or you have a cavity, your dentist may recommend a filling as a way in which to restore your tooth to how it once was. The filling can be the same shape as your tooth was but is replacing the decayed portion of the tooth.

However, some people get fillings for other reasons as well. If you have cracked or broken teeth, you grind your teeth, you bite your nails or even use your teeth to open bottles, you may find they are damaged and are in need of composite fillings to restore them to their former health.

What is Involved in the Filling Process?

When your dentist discovers a decaying tooth or cavity, the first thing they will need to do is remove that decay. To do so, they will inject anesthetic into the gum region around the tooth so that you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. Once the anesthetic kicks in, they then clean the tooth, removing all the decay and bacteria. The tooth is now clean and ready for a filling.
