Set high on a cliff face in the Blue Mountains, the Enchanted Love Cave is a place to cook simply, relax easily, and love your partner. Relax in the spa and watch the afternoon clouds roll over the mountains before the sun starts to fade and an eternity of stars begin to prick the night sky. Breathe in the scent of wood smoke mingled with fresh Eucalyptus and the fragrance from hundreds of red roses filling the cave. Listen to logs spitting in the fireplace as flames flicker shadows across rock walls, painting them with warmth and the age-old secrets of a primeval earth.
Valentine's Day is just weeks away. Ladies, have you dropped a few hints for your Valentine? Gentlemen, have you been paying attention to these hints? Normally, my husband & I don't exchange gifts on Valentine's Day however, after browsing (quite thoroughly) through Tesoro's online store recently, I've compiled quite a lengthy wish list that I would like to start checking off starting this Valentine's Day.
Tesoro is a leading Italian jewellery brand that specialises in combining fashion and Italian artisanship, creating sensual, chic and feminine jewellery collections. The Tesoro collections are designed for women who love being women.
My list starts with bangles - there are so many stunning pieces in this category that I think I've added one of each style on my wish list (pictured are my two absolute favourites). I would obviously need earrings to match and of course a pendant to complete the look. I'm thinking that I might not want to take a chance on my husband picking up on my hints, although I'm not known for my subtlety so surely he will get the message. It's safest for me to do the shopping and let him do the wrapping!
A story about surfing, scary locals and two kids battling to save their worst nightmare.
An ordinary summer holiday gets complicated when two kids – Jan and her brother Dean – are packed off to stay with their drop-out uncle, Woody. It should be complete paradise: a secluded island, great waves and a relaxed adult in charge. What could be better? But why is this place so deserted? Why has the town been overrun by jungle and what are those strange noises coming from the beach?
Monster Beach, a Cartoon Network original, is out now on DVD and can be purchased from leading home entertainment retailers nationally or by visiting www.madman.com.au.

Oh dear, it's a prize drought and it happens to us all. It can be tough, it can make you want to give up - but don't! Here's what I do when I think my luck has run out.......
