Surfers Paradise, Australia – March 28, 2017 /PressCable/ —

Queensland investment properties are highly sought-after today. Readers looking for the latest information on this opportunity are invited to subscribe to the all-new YouTube channel by Queensland property investment company Pivotal Homes. This new channel promises to provide expert guidance and information on property investments for Queensland residents and others looking to invest in the booming Queensland property market.

The company’s new YouTube channel was created specifically with the needs of property investors in mind, and Pivotal Homes welcomes input on which topics to explore in future videos.

Michael Irwin, Pivotal Homes’ Managing Director said: “There are a lot of poorly-built investment properties in Queensland, and this has deterred many would-be investors. By creating our own YouTube Channel, it gives us a chance to help bring our properties to life and helps property investors realise the quality of home they can build today in the Queensland market. I’m very excited about the videos we’ll be creating this year and beyond.”

When asked further about the intention of the new channel, Michael Irwin went on to say: “The aim of the new YouTube Channel is to educate property investors about making smart investment decisions. The more feedback we can get, the better we can serve our future customers. It just doesn’t make sense in 2017 for a business to not be on YouTube!”

Anybody interested in Queensland investments properties, as well as past customers of Pivotal Homes, are invited to subscribe to the YouTube channel to stay up to date with the company’s latest releases.

According to Michael Irwin, many Australians want to invest in property but they’re just not sure where – or how – to get started. Since 2006, Michael has helped both new and experienced investors to grow their portfolio and he hopes to help an even wider audience thanks to the reach of online video.

Michael advised, “Building an investment property is really exciting, but it can also be a very scary experience – especially for first-timers. By providing helpful video content on our YouTube channel, I hope to break down some of the myths and fears people have with the process, and show them how rewarding it can be.”

Some of the planned subjects for upcoming videos include:

Commentary from Michael Irwin on the state of investment properties in Queensland – where the opportunities lie, what areas to avoid.

Overviews of recent projects – demonstrating the level of quality and the range of development options on offer.

Investment property success stories – how customers were able to realise significant tax savings as a result of the Queensland investment property they built with Michael Irwin and the team at Pivotal Homes.

Investment property tips & guides – helping potential investors maximise their returns, and knowing what common traps to avoid.

Meet the staff – to show the public the friendly faces behind the Pivotal Homes brand.

Charity events – giving back to the community is very important to Michael Irwin; Pivotal Homes donates to various charities and fundraisers each year.

SYDNEY, March 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The world’s largest festival of light music and ideas, Vivid Sydney returns bigger, bolder and brighter in 2017, with a new precinct at Barangaroo, an expanded light walk through the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, and imaginary creatures that will transform the Sails of the Sydney Opera House.

Over 23 nights from Friday 26 May to Saturday 17 June, Vivid Light will transform the cityscape into a creative canvas, take over Sydney stages with Vivid Music’s biggest program to date, and provide a global forum for creative conversations at Vivid Ideas.

Vivid Sydney is owned, managed and produced by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.

Vivid Light

For the first time, Vivid Sydney’s vibrant kaleidoscope will stream into a new precinct at Barangaroo, with a trail of installations winding through intimate laneways, past waterfront vistas and into a foodie paradise. Visitors will be immersed in A Day in the Light, an outdoor theatre of light and sound that lets them become part of the artwork, and treated to optical illusions at Trapdoor, which tells the stories of Barangaroo’s past.

The festival’s bright lights will return to the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney with an expanded trail that will take visitors through the heart of the beautiful harbourside oasis. Here, Birds of Lumos, inspired by the rare Rowi species of the New Zealand kiwi, will come to life as they glow and pulse with colour. The nostalgic Dipping Birds, giant 2.5 metre illuminated sculptures, will change colour as they dip back and forth into a pond, and quirky installation You lookin’ at me? will turn heads as big glaring eyes follow passers-by. A pop-up landmark celebrating our Harbour City, Sydneyland, will provide a beautiful and iconic photo backdrop for visitors and locals.

At the heart of the Vivid Sydney light walk, the Sails of the World-Heritage listed Sydney Opera House will be bought to life by a series of imaginary creatures curated and designed by acclaimed cinematographer, editor, and graphic designer Ash Bolland. Audio Creatures will show creatures interacting with the environment, morphing and moving between each other across the iconic Sails.

The City’s icons will once again be transformed, including the facade of the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia with Organic Vibrations, a collaboration between Australian artist Julia Gorman and the Paris-based creative and artistic collective, Danny Rose. Interactive lighting display Dreamscape will let visitors put their own colourful mark on the city’s skyline from Circular Quay along the Cahill Expressway to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer and Executive Producer of Vivid Sydney, Sandra Chipchase said, “In 2016, a record-breaking 2.31 million visitors came to Vivid Sydney, which is testament to the festival’s impressive line-up, continued innovation and growth over the past nine years.

“Vivid Sydney in 2017 will impress with a robust program across Vivid Light, Music and Ideas, so now is the time for visitors to start planning their trip so they can be inspired visually, creatively and musically at Vivid Sydney.”

Popular precincts Chatswood, Taronga Zoo, Martin Place and Darling Harbour will return in 2017.

The buildings, shopping malls, streets and laneways of Chatswood CBD will be reinvented as a retro-futuristic smart city called Future City, Smart City with ingenious installations and light sculptures inspired by the ‘Steampunk’ design aesthetic of 19thcentury steam-powered machinery.

Lights for the Wild at Taronga Zoo, will return featuring giant animal light sculptures that wowed visitors when they made their debut last year. A few new characters and surprises will join the 2016 favourites, including a swarm of buzzing bees, and a giant interactive Port Jackson shark.

Martin Place will be home to Sydney’s most popular food and beverage purveyors, alongside grand, interactive light installations. Highlights include a new version of the multi-award winning 3D mapped projection Urban Tree 2.0, and Deep Forest, an urban jungle for feasting featuring an open flame fire-pit with barbeque treats from Porteno and some of NSW’s best fire chefs.

Twenty-eight  tonnes of water will be thrown into the air every minute, whilst lasers, flame jets, music and fireworks combine in a celebration of the power of creativity and innovation at Darling Harbour. Magicians of the Mist water theatre will be a spectacular display of technology and art defining the digital era.

Vivid Music

The beat of the Vivid Music program is stronger than ever with over 250 events in this year’s line-up. Highlights include an Australian exclusive performance by electronic pop duo Goldfrapp and the return of Curve Ball — a large-scale live music and art event created by Fuzzy Music, both at Carriageworks.

Popular Vivid Music events return including Heaps Gay, Soul of Sydney, Purple Sneakers and The Argyle’s Tokyo Disco.

Vivid LIVE at the Sydney Opera House will deliver an eclectic suite of not-to-be-missed performances from influential American folk-rock band Fleet Foxes, French electronic superheroes AIR, British singer and songwriter Laura Marling, and producer and bonafide hit-maker, Australia’s Nick Murphy.

City Recital Hall breaks from its classical roots with an incredible program — Metamorphosis — serving up everything from jazz and dance anthems, to multisensory masterpieces. Sydney based indie rock band Dappled Cities will launch their new album IIIII (pronounced five), Grammy award-winning jazz singer Dianne Reeves will take to the stage in a special one off performance, and Paul Mac will host a Sound Bubble Sound Party.

In a Vivid Music first, Vivid Sydney has partnered with the City of Sydney to deliver a program across a multitude of city venues. Showcasing grassroots and emerging local music talent, highlights will include a new roof top festival from Cake Wines, Pie in the Sky, and a showcase of Women in Electronic Music at Oxford Art Factory.

Kings Cross returns with an exciting line-up of performance music, art, ‘Avant Cabaret’, and cutting-edge, independent and immersive theatre with a bohemian flavour, part of the Vivid KX program.

Vivid Ideas

The Vivid Ideas program will continue to challenge and inspire with more than 200 events exploring the changing face of the creative industries. Iconic American artist Shepard Fairey, who blurs the boundaries of art and design, headlines the Vivid Ideas line-up. His body of work includes his Barack Obama HOPE campaign, the OBEY GIANT art project, and this year’s ubiquitous ‘We The People’ initiative.

In a Vivid Sydney exclusive, Fairey will share his do-it-yourself approach, career highlights and how he managed to turn his creativity into an authentic voice about street culture. He will also create a large scale public mural live on a wall in Sydney’s CBD, and some of his most famous works to date will be part of a pop-up exhibition at the Darling Quarter.

Throughout the city, a series of conferences will connect start-ups, emerging talent, practitioners and entrepreneurs with world-class creators and thought-leaders. Highlights include The Sunrise, which connects start-ups with successful founders; Semi Permanent, returning with a series of interactive, immersive experiences featuring leaders from Getty Images, NIKE, Google and more; and family-favourite, Robowars, where some of the country’s best engineers and robotic experts put their self-built robots to battle.

The Vivid Ideas Exchange at the Museum of Contemporary Art also boasts a diverse line-up of talks presented by Creative Practitioners covering topics from fashion to placemaking, storytelling, ageism, marketing pitching, health, innovation, big data and mixed reality.

Smoother Skin Clinic Sydney Releases Free Guide to Stretch Marks Treatment
Sydney, Australia – June 24, 2016 /PressCable/ —
Detail Smoother Skin Clinic has today made available at no cost to the reader a free comprehensive report on safe stretch marks treatment titled: “Consumer Guide to Stretch Marks Treatment Sydney”.

Stretch marks treatment SydneyWritten mostly to be relevant to women struggling with the problem of stretch marks, it will also prove very useful and informative to others interested in the science behind stretch marks and the various treatment options available today.

The report’s primary aim is to educate women about the science behind stretch marks. Andrew Chim, CEO of Smoother Skin and author of the report, explains that the guide offers valuable information designed to help women to discern between treatments which can help with stretch marks, and which treatments can be a potential waste of money.

Andrew Chim also states that the report was written with women of all ages largely in mind, because “whether it’s after a pregnancy, rapid weight loss or other cause, many Sydney women are embarrassed about their stretch marks and are frustrated by them. I felt this report would help them make better informed decisions about how to deal with the problem and to stop being limited by the condition.”

Detail Smoother Skin Clinic is in a unique position to produce this report and distribute it to all interested parties, as it has gained a unique insight into the Health & Beauty market by offering stretch mark treatment and related treatments to many Sydney women. A successful offspring of the the long-established Detail For Men Sydney hair salon, and the women-only Detail Woman salon, Detail Smoother Skin is rapidly establishing itself as a leading Sydney skin clinic and becoming synonymous in the industry with commitment to customer service and care.

I decided to produce this report to give consumers greater insight and understanding before they made a buying decision.”

How Detail Woman is Changing the Way Women Think about Hair Salons

Where most Sydney hair salons only offer haircuts and limited hairdressing services, Detail Woman also offer a full range of day spa and skin clinic services. Further information can be found at http://www.DetailWoman.com.
Sydney, Australia – March 15, 2016 /PressCable/ —

Detail Woman, a leading Sydney hair salon, opened its doors in 2013. Their main aim: to provide the ultimate hair salon and day spa experience for women.
Andrew Chim, CEO at Detail Woman, says: “We studied the marketplace for months, and discovered there weren’t many high-end hair salons in Sydney which also offered beauty services. We recognised that as being an inconvenience for women, so we decided to challenge the status quo and offer both hair and beauty services under the one roof.”
Where most Sydney hair salons only offer haircuts and limited hairdressing services, Detail Woman also offer a full range of day spa and skin clinic services. With hair extensions, eyelash extensions, keratin straightening, massages, facials, laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal – and even cellulite reduction – it’s hard to think of a service they haven’t yet covered. But that doesn’t stop Andrew from looking for ways they can add to that list.
It’s a formula which seems to be working well for Detail Woman. The Sydney hair salon has attracted thousands of customers and enjoy frequent 5 Star Reviews – more than 100 on their Facebook page alone – including several video reviews with positive comments from raving customers. Some customers even visit the hair salon on a weekly basis to relax and keep their hairstyle maintained.
“Today’s successful woman is busy. She works long hours and is often juggling multiple responsibilities. We wanted to create a place where women can not simply get a haircut, which is the case for 99% of hair salons in Sydney, but a place where they could be treated like royalty, feel free to unwind and be able to walk out feeling rejuvenated and looking beautiful,” Andrew added.
Detail Woman differ from most hair salons in Sydney because they offer a complimentary premium haircut as a way for women to trial their services risk free. All the potential customer needs to do is Like their Facebook page and contact the salon to book their appointment.
When asked if he was concerned about being ripped-off with this complimentary haircut, Andrew smiled knowingly and said: “That’s exactly what the average hair salon owner thinks, because they’re afraid of losing money. At Detail Woman we invest heavily in technical and customer service training for our hairdressers. We are constantly improving our processes and updating our equipment. That gives us a high level of confidence that when women claim their complimentary premium haircut, a good percentage will come back and become loyal customers.”

The approach is also supported by independent research. In their 2014 report titled “Beauty Environmental Scan“, the Retail & Personal Services Training Council (RAPS) observed:
“The Hairdressing and Beauty industries share similar challenges in establishing and running a personal services business. The majority of salons are small businesses which tend to compete heavily on price, even though many of the more successful businesses compete on the basis of consistent quality service and high client satisfaction and return rates.”
Time will tell whether other Sydney hair salons catch Detail Woman’s vision and adjust their business model accordingly.
