Tiaraaaaa Local Star

I enjoy being out and about, nature and taking as many holidays as possible. I love shopping and grabbing a good bargain, sipping a good latte and generally being on the move. I love having the opportunity to review all my favourite businesses and the few not so nice, and hope that my reviews are useful to other people.

  • Seaway Jetty & Kiosk
    Cafes    Surfers Paradise, QLD

    A recent stopover with family to enjoy a bite to eat led us to try Seaway. As it was very busy I expected there may be a bit of a wait for our food but not at all. Sharing a seafood basket with hubby I found it plenty for two people with a nice selection of crumbed & battered seafood. For the non-seafood lovers the menu offers plenty of alternatives including chicken schnitzel sandwiches and hamburgers which should satisfy all palettes.

    Ample parking although crowded. The dining area is spacious but I would recommend the balcony seating where you can watch the free range turkeys and enjoy the view and outdoors while you dine. The table settings themselves are casual with fun, coloured tablecloths and food served old school in baskets :)

    Have a sweet tooth? Also offering dessert bar filled with ice cream and fresh cakes (although a little overpriced)

    Great location, Eftpos available, nice food and friendly service. Will be back :)

  • Intraceuticals
    Alternative Medicine    Hawthorn East, VIC

    For someone that suffers with sensitive skin and frequent mature breakouts, to find a skincare product as fabulous as the Intraceuticals range has been a blessing. I have religiously been using my cleanser, antioxidant booster and gel treatment and have seen such a difference - far less exposed pores and healthy glowing skin. My beauty stockist thoroughly explained the ingredients used in the products and the benefits for my skin. Smooth texture, easy application and definitely value for money for such a high end skincare. Highly recommend.

  • Natural Choice Health Foods
    Health Markets    Mudgeeraba, QLD

    Located in the ever adorable Mudgeeraba Shopping Village this quaint little health food store offers the hinterland border locals all the organic and raw natural goodies of your large scale health shops, just with a bit heftier price tag. Not my regular but a good back up if I don't want to spend the weekend travelling around. My last quick visit I left with a pouch of kelp, organic almond milk, kale and an array of seeds. Friendly service, lovely natural store but a little pricey for regular shopping.

  • Miami Organic Farmers Market
    Farmers Market    Miami, QLD

    A fantastic way to spend sunny Sunday mornings. The markets are set up in Miami High School early Sunday leaving you the rest of the day to cook up a storm MKR style with all your organic goodies. Particularly I venture out to stock up on farm fresh fruit and vegetables but also love the organic honey, almond milk and relaxed atmosphere. Perfect to incorporate into an every week shop if you are local to the area or the perfect activity for visiting family before lunch on the beach.

  • The Hair Chair
    Hairdressers    Summer Hill, NSW

    A recent revamp and a rave review from my mum led me to the The Hair Chair for a pamper mum and daughter day. Although I kept to my regular layers and style cut, the cut was perfect for my features and I left the salon feeling like a million dollars with a soft new cut and blow dry. Super friendly and chatty, lovely dcor and staff.

  • Siteminder
    Hotels    Sydney, NSW

    The accommodation industry can be a stressful business with everyday proving a new challenge, but the thankfully the team at Siteminder are on hand to help make the channel managing side of your complex run smoothly. The telephone support team and trainers are patient and informative with all enquiries. The online extranet is easy to navigate and allows for hands on management and modern integration allows for management of all your OTAs and website from one site. Professional and friendly customer service, prompt return on all enquiries, easy to use and reliable. Highly recommend for any complex thinking of changing their channel manager.

  • Lugarno Mini Market
    Gourmet    Lugarno, NSW

    Although not always the cheapest option, this little local shop offered the convenience of 365 day trading (particularly essential when you forget oil on Christmas Day). Well stocked with all the essentials, newspapers, snacks, cigarettes, etc, variety of payment options and friendly personalised service.

  • Lugarno Pool Shop
    Swimming Pools    Lugarno, NSW

    The team at Lugarno Pool Shop are simply fabulous. From the moment you walk in you are met with friendly service and assistance for whatever your pool needs may be. From testing kits to chemicals for the pool or spa, they have it all. Don't have time for DIY, you can organise for pool cleaning and testing.

  • Mary Kay Cosmetics
    Cosmetics & Beauty Retailers    Lugarno, NSW

    Highly recommend the Mary Kay eye makeup remover which I happily stumbled onto courtesy of my local MK representative. Perfect for sensitive skin and it leaves the delicate eye area feeling moisturized. The makeup is good quality also, again, particular for those with sensitive skin. Reasonably priced, fast turnaround on purchases and friendly sales rep who are truly passionate about the products. Highly recommend.

  • Cellarbrations
    Bottle Shops    Lugarno, NSW

    Popular franchise liquor store conveniently located for a quick stop. Nice range of vintage and budget drops for all occasions. Red or white, bubbles or boutique beer, spirits and mixers. Knowledgeable staff on hand to assist with recommendations, efficient counter service, attractive specials and good location.

  • Charcoal Chicken
    Takeaways    Peakhurst, NSW

    Hmmmm traditional charcoal chicken; you just can't beat it. The chips are always perfect with the right amount of chicken salt, a quarter chicken and chips tastes great and affordable. Plus all your signature sides such as the burgers, garlic cream potato bake, potato scallops, loads of drinks and much more. Most impressive the friendly personalised service and the reasonable pricesz

  • KFC
    Takeaways    Riverwood, NSW

    5 stars for an awesome KFC. Very clean establishment with simple to navigate parking and drive thrus. Thankfully it was pretty quiet and I had time to scan the menu properly without rushed ordering. Each meal was cooked fresh to order and a friendly staff offering efficient service. Fresh, tasty takeaway well worth a stopover for a treat.

  • Sutherland Shire Leisure Centre
    Swimming Pools    Sutherland, NSW

    So many memories of pool parties, movie nights and tagging along for aqua aerobics. For regular visits a membership or ten visit card is the best value as the per visit cost is quite pricey. In Winter the heated pool is a dream with dedicated lanes for serious swimmers and plenty of water fun for the kiddies of all ages. Adults can take advantage of the gym and crche, huge spa and sauna. I wonder if they still have those movie nights??

  • Krispy Kreme
    Takeaways    Broadbeach, QLD

    KK donuts you either love them or hate them. I bought a mixed dozen over the weekend to share with the fams. My favourites are the Traditional Cinnamon (as these are the true donuts ;) and the Strawberry Iced. First few bites are amazing but the sweetness in KK donuts leave a slight sickening feeling if you try to overindulge. A little more pricey than your average donut shop but the mixed dozen dopes work out to good value if buying for a couple of people. Top location at the entrance of Pac Fair, friendly staff and quick service.

  • Mermaid Beach Dental Surgery - Dr Tu Le
    Dentists    Mermaid Beach, QLD

    Dr Le is an absolute gem especially for a scaredy cat like me who hates all trips to the dentist. Very professional and gentle in his dentistry approach, I felt very at ease from the first visit and dentist visits are not so daunting now. The staff are wonderful and make you feel very welcome from arrival right through to the end of your procedure. Highly recommend.

  • Peter Alexander
    Clothing Retailers    Broadbeach Waters, QLD

    What's not to love about PA :D The pyjamas are so soft and comfortable and very affordable for the quality. They stock a range of items for the whole family including bubbas in great colours and brands (such as the Mr Men/Little Miss series). The gift items are just beautiful and its as simple as saying the item is a gift and you can get your purchases beautifully wrapped. The also stock the Glasshouse candles' range which are absolutely delightfully burning each time I walk in and tempt me to buy a new one. Love, love, love.

  • Country Road
    Clothing Retailers    Broadbeach Waters, QLD

    Although leaning towards the higher end scale of fashion shopping, I love to treat myself to timeless pieces from Country Road. Maybe a nice blouse or fitted black pants for work or a nautical dress for enjoying the Summer fun. You definitely pay for quality at Country Road and will definitely find that signature design that will last a number of seasons. Top quality, friendly service and easy to navigate location in the undercover part of the Centre. Highly recommend

  • Lowes
    Clothing Retailers    Broadbeach Waters, QLD

    Lowes has always been the go to for affordable menswear. From business and formal attire to casual day wear, trades and basics.

    The prices are reasonable particular as they have great sales all throughout the year. The local is a little out of the way tucked near Kmart but with all the renovation world underway it should be ready to navigate to in no time.

    Friendly staff, good product and size range and great prices.

  • Strandbags
    Clothing Retailers    Broadbeach Waters, QLD

    A regular haunt for fashion gifts for family, friends and when I can treat myself ;) great selection of high end and budget brands to suit every style and budget. Not just for the ladies but also plenty of briefcase and man bag designs for the lads.

    Easy location if you are local to the area but could be a little confusing for visitors who are not familiar with the renovations at Pac Fair.

    Very friendly and helpful staff, great range and competitive prices for very well know brands.

  • Telstra Store Pacific Fair
    Mobile Phones Retailers    Broadbeach, QLD

    I recently ventures in to make some enquiries prior to upgrading my contract. The staff were friendly and assisted with my queries without smothering or forcing the sale. The fresh new layout with the renovations is modern and easy to navigate around and they have all the new phone and tablet models hands on.
