Buying Diamonds For My Wedding



I am getting married in October next year and is therefore on the lookout for some beautiful diamonds. Me and my husband went to have a look at a few diamond dealers in the city the other day but it was so expensive. A friend of  mine recommends buying the diamond online. I think she used this diamond retailer I am not sure if Australian Diamond Exchange is good or not, cant find much information online about their company. But it looks like a legit and reputable business.


Update 11 April

So I’m back at it again still trying to figure out the best way of buying exclusive diamonds to my wedding. I have kind of decided who to go with after speaking to friend of my mum. The company is called Australian Diamond Exchange and this is their website: Apparently, they are based on Melbourne which is very convenient and will save me a lot of time. I had a look at their diamond rings before and they are absolutely gorgeous.


I will keep you in the loop.

What are Pergolas Used For?

Pergola installation in Adelaide home A pergola is often a free standing outdoor structure made with a lattice style roof. Homeowners can choose to have a pergola built for a number of different reasons. When it is built as an attachment to a home it can serve as a connecting point between the home and the unattached garage. It can also be used to provide shade or to grow vines in a garden

Using a Pergola for Shade

The open style to the pergola’s roof makes an ideal structure for shade in areas where people gather for outdoor activities. It can be built above an outdoor patio or sidewalk to reduce the full effect of the sun’s rays. The lattice style of the roof beams still allows the sun’s light to come through so people can enjoy being outdoors in the summer. It can also be built on a grassy area to provide a degree of shade over an outdoor bench.

Using a Pergola in the Garden

The design of the pergola not only makes it an attractive enhancement for an outdoor garden it also allows for the growth of vines. Ivy or rose vines can be trained to grow up the sides and intertwine across the open beams of the roof. Plant vines will significantly enhance the charm of the structure, which in turn will enhance the visual appeal of the outdoor garden.

Considering Cosmetic Surgery Overseas? Think again.

womenWhile the allure of cheap cosmetic procedures and cosmetic holiday packages might seem like a great way to ‘treat yourself’ or ‘improve your look’, Australian doctors are concerned about the rising number of complications from patients returning home from treatment.

Google “breast implants” and you’ll find an range of cheap overseas procedures and ‘holiday makeover packages’. It’s no doubt that Internet accessibility and exchange rates has bridgedthe gap in getting cosmetic surgery for many Australians, but this one trip you might want to skip.

In 2011 the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) published a media release strongly advising Australians to think twice before traveling overseas for cosmetic surgery.

The survey shown to ASPS revealed that “over half of those conducting cosmetic tourism revisions are seeing more patients requiring assistance in the last 12 months compared to the previous year. In fact, the average rise of cases for these surgeons is a staggering 38 per cent.” – with the most common kind of surgery conducted overseas requiring corrective treatment being breast surgery (representing 68 per cent of all revision procedures).

ASPS President Associate Professor Rodney Cooter warned that cosmetic surgery is no different to any other kind of surgery in that it carries serious risk and should be carefully considered. “Cosmetic surgery is no holiday. Cosmetic surgery packages sold as holidays downplay the importance of the post-operative period. Any kind of major surgery, cosmetic or otherwise, requires a high level of post-operative care. That means rest and healing time to reduce the risk of complications. It’s not about sunbathing, drinking cocktails, swimming and snorkeling before jetting home,” explains Associate Professor Cooter.

While the ASPS and Australian doctors strongly advised to carefully consider the risks of overseas treatment, it is important to note that some of the surgeons in these areas are highly skilled professionals.

It’s not to say that anyone who travels overseas for a procedure is going to come into complications, however they do urge people to consider the after-care and monitoring they will receive overseas compared with Australia – and who will help them if something goes wrong?

After all, despite the warnings in 2011, online searches seem to be on the rise, with the peak search volume increasing 20%.

It’s an increasing concern, especially considering the survey found some staggering results:

• 72 per cent of plastic surgeons conducting revisions on cosmetic tourism patients have had cases they were unable to completely correct.

• Almost half say they have seen cases that would have been life threatening without corrective treatment.

• 62 per cent have seen cases which have involved permanent disfigurement despite the surgeon’s best efforts because some complications can result in irreversible damage.

• A similar number have seen cases where the patient has been severely psychologically impacted as a result of their experience.

Although the initial price lure of overseas cosmetic surgery, Australians can also be in for a nasty financial shock after complications arise and reconstructive or revision surgery is needed.

The findings of the survey also show that the average cost of cosmetic tourism revisions to the patient to be an additional $5,754. In addition to that, recovery time can mean an additional two to three weeks, potentially meaning a loss of income for the patient as well.

At first glance a cosmetic holiday might seem like a nice idea, but maybe it’s time for Australians to reassess their options and think twice before traveling overseas for cosmetic treatment. Visit this website for more information on where you can find a trustworthy clinic overseas:
