This time in 5 weeks ... "Christmas Eve!"

This year I will be wishing Santa brings peace. It seems such a big wish at the moment with so much happening in the world. No matter what your views are, where you stand on the thing we have come to refer to as terrorism, one word pins hope; peace.

I am no expert however I do believe the showing of love at a time when hope, peace and happiness are at far reach for so so many can be as simple as sitting next to someone in need and being present. Keeping an open mind and listening more than saying. This is our little mantra. 

The world is filled with many judgements. Lately, I have used the term, "No words!" ...  

So as a business person going about my everyday tasks I consider what it is that keeps us a float in this time of massive change. And while we know fab products, excellent add on services (if we do say so) helps, it is 'people' and a true love for connection and care. So with this in mind, Team LFB have selected some gift choices that will demonstrate your desire to appreciate your loved ones.

No, we have not gone into the business of food (albeit it has crossed our minds) ... Have you ever thought to place a delicious Fine Jewellery Ring on a festive plate for your loved one to find (not eat!) or wanted to give a gift that she can keep, marking the year that was? Here's a few low fat options;


There are rings in store and online from $89 all the way up and fine Jewellery to suit every taste and personality style ...

If you like to give the 'Gift of an Experience' our Gift Cards come with a Secret Santa bonus of a Complimentary Make Up Session (valued at $89)  ... 

AND (yes, there is more!) when you spend over $200 on a Gift Card for a lucky loved one they will receive an extra SSB (Secret Santa Bonus not a beverage ;)) of the Make Up Session AND a Hair Styling Session! That's an extra experience thrown in with a value of $178 (You're welcome - smiling!) not to mention the additional fun.

Candles, they represent calm for me. And this year as always we have our Signature Candles in the uplifting scent all LFB'ers love and our limited edition Christmas fragrance; both large sizes now $30

Sometime ago we introduced Vani-T Cosmetics to our Collection. This Australian made, natural mineral make up is terrific for all skin types (including my teenager skin at 42) and wears so well, it needs no touching up during the day. Ok, your lippy will, however that's from smiling at everyone in your pretty dress.

Remember to book in for your festive make over (as stunning Charlotte did) before heading out to your Christmas parties. Hair Styling $89. Make Up $89. Bookings essential on 9471 9086 ... 


If you love a little hit of Colour for Christmas, here are two kits to set you off into a festive spin ...

Bronzer with Highlighter included, Lip Glaze in a fab colour and a quality Contouring Brush (we will show you how to use it!) Valued at $130. Now available for $80 (save $48) 

AND or (I know we are cheeky) for the LFB'er who loves eye makeup and dressing up, here is the go to, Bat the Eyes (Marilyn Monroe style) gift ...

Eyeshadows x2 (in complimentary colours) with Eyelashes to boot and a quality Brush (Valued at $116). Now available for $65 (save $51) 

As we wrap up this message (do like a pun) remember we would love to help your loved one select something special to mark the year that has been while giving joy and hope to the new one ahead. If you have a secret wish of your own that LFB can help deliver, know we will treasure the business. 

Thank you for another wonderful calendar year filled with new and old friends, LFB'ers. Let peace be with you and your families as we head into the festivities of late November, December and beyond. 

We have our Team LFB Christmas party this coming Saturday (if you see us out, we apologise up front!) so anyone visiting me this Sunday (oh note; we are now opening at 10 through to 5 on Sundays up until Christmas) please be extra cheery!

With a Mrs Claus like smile and a love of the above ...

PS: Thank you to Nash & Co Maylands for letting us eat I mean shoot in their fab new place. Welcome to the hood. 

PPS: Just in case you missed our last blog here's a link as there is so much to consider for Christmas gift giving when shopping local here in Maylands. 


Meet Maylands ... with fresh eyes

Spring has well and truly sprung and so much newness has begun!

New stores on the Whatley strip, new menus, cocktails, dresses, flowers oh flowers. They personify Spring, don't they?

Sosi is getting ready for all the births, with hopes of a baby boom and Henry on 8th is waiting to fill it's room. A new bar ... start the car (with a skipper)


Greta from This Fine Day (a milliner, did you know?) has blisters on her fingers making hats while our very own Steph has her heel flat; sewing bespoke gowns at LFB

It's all a buzz ...

So where is our shopping community? 

I am here to get you excited all over again!

So why visit ...

Meet Linda who is Ma Kettles Gardenelia (located next door to LFB, us).

Ma Kettle is bursting with carefully curated cactus's, weird plants I've never seen before in vertical gardens ready for you to take the credit and fresh flowers among home wares and other fab finds. Pop by and say hi to this new business owner who is open Wednesday to Sunday 10 to 3. 

Tried the Organic Butcher? Meet the crew who have a farm in Manjimup that bring ethically produced meats to our Maylands. Open 7 days. I have the immediate urge for a BBQ after visiting. Oh and that sauce is definitely whoop a## for the packaging alone.

Who's ever noticed the happy crew at the Flight Centre? My lifelong dream trip to Paris would not have been the same without their help. Internet smiginet ... I needed face to face old school advice and high vis so it seems!


Keep walking up 8th Avenue and you will pass lots of quality fashion options (all with something different), an A1 kebab shop (may have tried it with good reason) a gun shop (mmhhmm), a terrific chemist, a super shoe shop for the kids owned by this guru of the foot ... Kath. A podiatrist.

OH and have you ever looked in the optometrist? No pun intended. Well ok, it was! They have stunning brands. On this tour you must meet Lammys. They wouldn't come to the door for a pic (shy) ...

Efficient, inexpensive, quality clothing alterations that are precise. Do yourself a favor and set the sat nav to their driveway (almost opposite Milk'd where you can stop in for the most consistent bacon stack in the hood). Oh Milk'd is open 7 days and for our career women among the LFB community, Lammys is open Saturday mornings until 1pm and until 6 during the week. We love Lammys and bacon and the art at Milk'd ,,,

Stop for a mo and check out the refreshed Vinnies. Now lead by LFB'er, Julie ... It is making an attempt to groove itself up a bit. Donations welcomed!

Skip back down to Whatley Crescent ...  The little bit of Melbourne in Maylands ...

With premium cafes on offer it is always hard to go past a coffee at Smoults!

Followed by a starter at Mrs S (who now has a gold plate), a main meal at Chapels on Whatley with wine (if you must) and tea (to keep in balance) ...

And then dessert at Sherbets followed by a cocktail at Swallow Bar and don't forget to leave room for some more food there too. PSST; What are you doing for Melbourne Cup? Join us at Swallow Bar!

When we asked Swallow Bar owners Meredith and Zoe why they picked Maylands to build their now awarded business, the answer resonated with many of the owners; "a love for the strong sense of history and personality.  The warmth of the locals and other business owners and the sense that Whatley Cres was like a High Street or a small town center." 

Can you visualize a relatively empty Whatley Crescent strip in 2011 (not that long ago) and a group of frightened yet excited start up, crazy entrepreneurs all doing fits outs? Fast forward and from one end to the other (to name a few) we have a highly regarded Hairdresser, a Wanderlust design gift studio ...

And so much more oh even a new cafe coming soon. Nash and Co. Be sure to give them a go ... All of this before you even head over to the other side of the railway tracks for more quality fashion and food. 

Share Maylands with your style savvy mates ... we'd love the shop local support heading into Spring Summer and CHRISTMAS (yes, I am shouting, CHRISTMAS it's not that far away).

Look forward to seeing you in the hood ...

With a smile ...


Caroline with Vanessa, Stephanie and Mel with our peers in Maysie ...
