Restaurants Centennial Park, NSWThe queue in their outdoor cafe was rather large however the wait time to receive your coffee was almost nil. By the time I paid there was only one coffee ahead of me. What an awesome barista!!!!!!!!!! Great location with a children's park handy and doc friendly.
Party & Event Planning Surry Hills, NSWPop up picnic organised a company family fun day we attended and they did a fantastic job. The staff were excellent, all so friendly, the lunch was delicious, divine salads especially, fun activities for kids like a jumping castle and races. Everything was well catered for and planned.
Clothing Retailers Sydney, NSWI bought the best pair of jeans today in their sale for $35 that are just so slimming. They were reduced to $50 but there was even more savings when I made it to the register which was an awesome surprise. I also got a lovely soft fabric and soft blue denim shirt for $80. So stoked with my purchases and cannot wait to wear them.
Clothing Retailers Brookvale, NSWI haven't been here in ages and found the store to be really well organised and easy to find everything. The jeans are so clearly labelled with their style and fit so made choosing easy. There are heaps of change rooms for busy days, combined for both sexes, however a number of them were full of boxes.
Restaurants Manly, NSWIt's been ages since we ate there so headed back. The staff were very accommodating of us turning up without a booking early on a Friday night and with a pram, finding a good table and tucking the pram away. I had the squid and it was just as divinely tender as ever. I had the roasted potatoes on the side and they were delicious also. Tho together as a meal I felt a bit heavy on the oil by the end adn should really have ordered a fresh salad too.
Clothing Retailers Brookvale, NSWI found a fabulous suede vest in this store with tassles that I hope I get wear out of as it is just so fantastic that I couldn't say no to it. They were clear in their 30 days refund policy however.
General Retailers Brookvale, NSWthey had a pop up sale in Brookvale on the weekend and the clothes were positively awful! However that I guess is only my opinion as we all have different tastes in life. They did however have an Arsenal football kits for kids so that will keep the husband happy for $15.
Internet Services Perth, WAWe have been using Iinet for years now and never had a problem with connectivity, however we are releasing our plan. When I called to cancel they were very informative and offered to refund some money if we didn't see the month out.
Newsagents Manly, NSWLooks like they are starting to get ready for Xmas, as I bought a fantastic Scholastics book about the Day Before Xmas in Australia, which will be an excellent gift to send overseas. They also have a train set to occupy little ones in the shop.
Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt Manly, NSWWe bought ice cream for all of the kids, at $3.70 the price was good, with choc dipped cones and extra toppings if they liked, however the scoop was a little on the small side. On a busy day it is hard to chose a flavour as there is three cabinets and its hard to see, a board with flavours might assist the ease in choosing.
Mobile Phones Retailers Balgowlah, NSWI queued to get an iPhone 6s and the store had the morning so well organised and informative. A staff member Jarrod organised the queue which they maintained outside the store so it was orderly and kept in order. He had a clipboard and folder taking down colour and GB we wanted and even assisted in speaking to my former company with advice on how to release the number so they could take it over on Optus. Nothing was too much trouble for either him or Brendan who assisted me with my order which proved to be problematic. I would highly recommend the staff and the store.
Mobile Phones Retailers Brookvale, NSWI spoke to a staff member here in preparation for buying a phone from optus and transferring a phone number from another provider to Optus. He was incredibly helpful and informative and in fact knew more about how to release the phone number from Telstra than any of the Telstra over the phone team.
Mobile Phones Retailers Brookvale, NSWI dealt with a girl called Jessica in store who arranged the portal of my phone number from a business account so I could take it to another provider. She was so knowledgeable and efficient and helpful, I would recommend people to the store based on my experience with her on what was a very busy day with the release of the iPhone 6s.
Fashion Bondi, nswI love love love this shop, although I do find it very expensive, such as the lovely light cotton dresses that are selling for over $200 when you know how cheap the fabric is. That being said I know a lot of effort goes into the design as they are always cutting edge.
Aquariums Manly, NSWI bought a yearly Merlin pass which includes Oceanworld so that was our first place to visit. My boy is maybe a bit young to really enjoy all of the exhibits however loved the children's play area which is all safely padded. I think it I made a trip to visit here I might be a little disappointed but I am not a big underwater / fish fan so maybe that is why it didn't sustain my interest for too long.
Furniture Stores Warriewood, NSWI am a celebrant and have found some wish jars at Swish that are so fantastic for special event days like baby namings, weddings and engagements, I send everyone here! They are jars with a reel of message tags and a pen and lovely label for the special event.
