In keeping with the current trend of brigt and beaded comfy kaftans, Glamour Place is certainly up there! Lots of big bold prints, tuns of colour, bits of bling and comfort too. Another great addition to the fashion line up at the Oasis.
Being a member of a professional body that upholds a code of ethics is important to me as a financial planner and I've been a part of the FPA since 2001, holding their Affiliate designation.
The FPA offer local, state and national support to financial planners with ongoing training and education through workshops, webinars and conferences.
They also actively promote a Financial Literacy week and run the Ask a Planner initiative on an annual basis.
I've been a member of the AFA since 2008 and currently act as the Gold Coast Chapter Chair hosting a couple of local events each year for financial planners locally.
The AFA also supports many female financial advisers through their Inspire committee, hosting events and workshops throughout the year.
The AFA are active in promoting financial literacy and in supporting local charities through the AFA Foundation, such as Bravehearts.
They take an active role in advocating the role of financial advisers with Government, and in helping shape relevant policy.
Dropped in for a pick-me-up today when in Burleigh, and if you're into organic foods, there's plenty here. I'd been recommended a Buchi drink (can't beleive the old Kombucha mushrooms have made a comeback!) and managed to find it here. Lots of other snacks also available.
Happy to be a member of SPAA. This Association provides a designation is for those who specialise in the field of Self Managed Super and they provide lots of ongoing training and support to its members. Pleased to be associated with SPAA.
There's some fabulous fashion up for grabs here that's just that little bit different to what all the ordinary chains have for offer. Picked up a couple of great tops, and will be back for a dress too!
Lovely and helpful service also.
Great ladies fashion shop in the Oasis.
This is a lovely ladies clothing and accessories store in the Oasis Centre in Broadbeach. Found some fantastically comfortable pants for the summer months and a great top for work. Staff are friendly and really helpful at finding items to suit. Might head back for another pair of those comfy pants tho! Love the sales!
Always a good spot when doing a wander along Mount Tamborine for the day.
The tastings are free and their signature Tamembare is lovely.
My particular favourite is the Triple Cream Blue - pity their Triple Cream Brie is no longer available.
Service can be a bit hit and miss, but their pre-packed platters are great if you want to grab a couple of bottles of wine from a local winery and do an impromptu picnic.
The lovely Skye runs this great little coffee shop in the foyer of the Eastside building. You'll always be greeted with a friendly smile, a chat and be served a great coffee. Definitely drop in if you're in the area! She's a gem!
Good place to meet colleagues for a work chat over a cuppa.
On the day we attended, the room was beautifully done up for a wedding and looked gorgeous! Our tasting went well and we enjoyed our time briefly at Heritage Wines, taking away a bottle of wine with us and a $4 bag of home grown Avo's.
The phones were down at the time meaning we had to pay cash instead of EFTPOS, but technology can be like that!
We loved the air conditioned part of the restaurant as on our tour day it was around 40 degrees and we were melting!
And the food was definitely worth stopping for!
My partner enjoyed the fish and chips, but my duck leg was amazing.
Not too many local wines on offer but well worth a visit!
Lots of aboriginal art and artefacts on the walls which added a nice touch.
Mason Wines is another great stop on a winery tour of Mount Tamborine. Their Eden Restaurant has a great outlook and although was didn't stay for lunch, the food smelt fabulous.
They specialise in flavoured olive oils too that are available for purchase along with their wines, including chili, garlic and rosemary varieties.
The tawny port was a hit here and one of those bottles found its way home with us!
Mixed cases available for $99.
The Five Star rating isn't just given by me, but also James Halliday which is a great boast for any winery to be able to make.
This is the only working vineyard on Tamborine and the tasting was well explained and thorough.
I look away a bottle of Syrah for now, and the Prophecy to lay down for a few year.
A picturesque setting and definitely worth adding to your tour of the Mountain.
The Brewery is usually worth a visit when on Tamborine.
Unfortunately it was around 40 degrees when we were there and the heat unbearable as there's no fans or air con at the Brewery. The beer tasting paddle with 5 options for $15 cooled a couple of us down as was worth a try!
Did a weekend wine tour of Mount Tamborine winereis using TicTac Tours and our driver Errol was lovely. The day couldn't have gone more smoothly. Although the bus was older, the air conditioning was great and the seats were clean and tidy. Really nice day!
Great little clothing and accessories store right next to Harvest at Newrybar.
Hubby found a great leather belt to take home.
There's sculptures, sunglasses, shoes, clothes, jewellery, pictures and accessories. Definitely worth a browse when in that neck of the woods.
