  • Blue Illusion Australia

    Clothing Retailers Brighton, VIC
    Blue Illusion is back on track with nice designs and colours and this is my favourite store. Staff is so friendly and helpful, even if it's close to closing time they really go the extra mile for you. Clothing is not cheap but some of it is lovely and if you can get your size on sale, even better.
  • Humble House

    Restaurants Brighton, VIC
    This place never disappoints with delicious food with the subtle and fresh ingredients that make Cantonese food so lovely. Try the steamed barramundi in soy, ginger and shallots! It is breaktakingly good! Service is fantastic too, unobtrusive but always ready to help. The food is beautiful and healthy and good value.
  • National Wool Museum

    Museums Geelong, VIC
    There are so many things we take for granted about the textiles and fibres we rely on for our clothing and with synthetics, it's easy to forget how incredibly important wool was to our national history and economy. It's an interesting museum and there are also many fascinating tidbits of information. Did you know dissolving a bit of lanolin and rinsing woollens in it after washing can improve the softness and lifespan of the fibre?

  • As a local, I had been taking my pets here for quite some time before I finally got sick and tired of the bad attitude of the staff there.
    I have now found an alternative clinic in Gardenvale that is fantastic
    • You and me both! Love the North Road Vet in Gardenvale, if that's the one you mean! :)
  • Woolworths took one of the best supermarkets in Australia, and turned it into one of the worst. Although they have kept many of the staff from the previous supermarket, they have removed all of the interesting, gourmet produce by small, niche, quality producers and replaced it with Woolworths brand stuff. So in the past, there would be excellent, interesting breads from artisan bread makers, sour dough, etc. Now there is Woolworths brand 'gourmet' bread. It says 'sour dough' on it, but when you read the ingredients, there is yeast! Anyone that knows anything about sourdough bread, knows that it is made from sourdough culture and contains no yeast. Just because Woolworths says something is 'gourmet' doesn't mean it is.
    So because it is a small supermarket, with not much space, they have had to reduce the brand choice you would normally get in a Woolworths. So when you go to get jam (for example) there is just two jams and one of them is Woolworths brand.
    So it doesn't give you the choice of a normal Woolworths, it just gives you rubbish to choose from. You know, cartons of 12 ridiculous cupcakes. Or some monster box of lamingtons. Not something I would ever want to buy.
    The old supermarket before this used to actually offer breads that were on a par with Baker D Chirico across the road. Proper artisan products. Now it is filled with Woolworths brand rubbish. The only thing it is good for is picking up something like yogurt that you need for a recipe and forgot to get when you went shopping at your regular supermarket, which would never be this one.
    It is no good. I am very, very disappointed. I used to rave about the old IGA and the interesting things they had. It was a supermarket you could be proud of. I would go interstate and only occasionally see a supermarket as good, one at Surry HIlls in Sydney. Otherwise, there were none as good. Now, it is the worst of the worst. To go from the best to the worst! Such horror.
    Woolworths should have thought more about what they were doing and realised where they are. This isn't some regional town where they can force their 'Woolworths' stuff on us. This is St Kilda!!! St Kilda deserves better than this. Massive Fail.
    • This review is spot-on! You now have to try order those wonderful niche products at the online website and often they are out of stock. By the way, the organic range offers no certification that I can see of its organic provenance.
  • As I had driven a long way, I thought it would be a nice way to end the day to have my hair done. The staff seemed to understand my instructions just fine. Then the staff completely ignored them. My hair was a complete mess and I had to go elsewhere to try to rectify some of it- not easy.
    • Unless you will pay for hair extensions or a wig, you can't rectify such a dreadful cut. I will simply have to wait for it to grow.
