Amy Amandeep opened Beauty Boost in Nundah three years ago, and in that time, the salon has grown to welcome new staff members and to offer new services.

Alongside Beauty Boost’s normal services (including the popular cosmetic tattooing and facials), Amy is introducing non-surgical skin rejuvenation.

“One of the growing trends in skincare and beauty is nonsurgical procedures that achieve optimal results,” says Amy. “We are excited to offer these services for ongoing treatment plans or for treatments leading up to a big event.”

The LED (Light Emitting Diode) skin rejuvenation treatment will assist with reducing skin laxity, deep lines, acne scarring, pigmentation and rosacea.

Joining Amy will be new staff member Kamile, who specialises in a variety of massage treatments, including Swedish, remedial and lymphatic drainage.

“We look forward to showcasing the new services to our clients – we are excited about the results our clients will receive from these exciting new treatments!”

Taking Care of Your Loved Ones

Machaela and Mark Magennis have opened Brisbane North Home Care Assistance in Nundah Village – providing personalised care for Brisbane seniors.

With a background in nursing and business, and a passion for providing quality care for seniors, Machaela and Mark enjoy working with clients who require help caring for a loved one.

“We speak to people who have a loved one who may have trouble performing daily tasks, or need assistance so they can continue living independently,” says Machaela.

“With the help of our Care Partners we allow family members to resume their role as a loving and supportive family member and take over the role of carer.”

Machaela and Mark have carefully screened a range of Care Partners who complete comprehensive training to provide the highest calibre of care.

“Our staff look after our client’s family members the same way that our clients would if they had time,” says Machaela.

Home Care Assistance offers short-term to 24-hour live-in care in Brisbane and offers a complimentary in-house assessment to understand the client’s background and interests.

This assessment allows Machaela and Mark to match the best possible Care Partner to match to enrich the life of their clients.

Machaela and Mark are enjoying working with North Brisbane residents with their care needs.

“It is so rewarding to see the progress that our clients have under our care and to see that what we are doing every day is enriching the lives of so many people,” says Machaela.

Inspiring a Love of Science

With a desire to encourage a love of science among students, Brisbane Northside local Steve Liddell has created one of Australia’s premier science productions.

Steve launched Street Science after several years of teaching in Brisbane Northside schools.

‘I loved working in schools and I saw an opportunity to provide more hands-on opportunities in science so that children and adults could really engage,’ says Steve.

Steve started Street Science by doing science demonstrations at schools, and it steadily grew to shows at Queen Street Mall, National Science Week events and the Brisbane EKKA.

“We find parents, students and teachers love the demonstrations,’ says Steve. ‘Often teachers don’t have the resources to do what we can do, so we can bridge the gap. Plus the kids have so much fun while they are learning!’

Street Science has expanded to offer school incursions, science parties and community performances.

Steve looks forward to continuing to expand the show interstate and encourage a love of science among Aussie kids.

Nundah local, Skye, has taken her love for tea and started a campaign to raise awareness and funds for mental health and suicide prevention.

After seeing the impact of mental health issues on family and friends, Skye wanted to raise awareness, start conversations and assist those impacted.

“The Tea Whisperer started out of my appreciation for courage, connection and compassion,” says Skye. “In some situations people – including me – didn’t know what to say or how to act. But I thought we could make a connection over a cup of tea.”

Skye has started a range of Tea Whisperer Treat Boxes, which allows people the chance to rest, relax and reconnect. The boxes contain inspiration quotes and everything to make a great cup of tea.

A portion of the profits from each box sold will be donated to Mental Health organisations, including the Mental Awareness Foundation and Roses in the Ocean.

Nundah Food Guide: Pizzalunga da Carlo

Since opening eight months ago, Pizzalunga da Carlo has taken Nundah by storm with its metre long pizzas.

Head Chef and Owner Carlo is committed to ensuring that diners have a truly authentic Italian dish, with only the freshest and finest ingredients used and the pizzas cooked in a woodfired pizza oven imported directly from Italy.

Carlo’s specialty pizzas have proved popular with locals – especially the Carlo (mozzarella, mushroom, zucchini, eggplant, salami, olives and fresh tomatoes) and the Nundah (mozzarella, spinach, ricotta cheese and pancetta).

The latest addition to the Pizzalunga da Carlo menu has been housemade desserts, including panna cotta, Nutella pizza and tiramisu.

“The tiramisu has been extremely popular,” says Carlo. “We had one customer say that heaven couldn’t get much better than this tiramisu!”

But, it’s the Nutella pizza that has proved the most popular with both children and adults.

“People can’t get enough of our Nutella pizzas! We’ve even made a few metre long Nutella pizzas.”

Pizzalunga is licensed, with a wide range of wines, beers and spirits available and special Beer and Spritz nights every Tuesday and Wednesday.
