It's nice sometimes to be sent to a place in your home country that you wouldn't often get to visit. I travel all over the world and see some amazing things, but you know it's nice to just explore your own homeland and see the beauty that is so nearby.

Here’s a review I wrote on Lovelly Communications about the Sherpa Film. It’s an incredible production and was something I had been waiting to see. We were also lucky to run a competition and giveaway 5x double passes. The competition got some amazing responses and I really enjoyed the disxussions around the movie as well as the topic of “obstacles” and “mountains” we must overcome.
See this movie, it is so highly recommended!
Last weekend I went to see Sherpa Film and was blown away. It was everything I hoped for and more. Everest has a special place in my heart after I trekked there last year with World Vision Australia. It also brought up the conflicts that you feel when heading to this most hallowed place that brings with it political controversy and environmental concerns, the film addresses all of this with pinpoint accuracy.
The cinematography in this film was spectacular. An Australian production and world class cinema. The techniques to capture some of the epic shots of the mountain are unbelievable and it took me right back to the base of the largest mountain in the world.
Emotive and captivating. Sherpa Film draws you in from the opening shots and takes you along an emotional journey as you learn more about Chomolungma, the sherpas name for Everest, their mountain home. I learnt…

EXCITING TIMES! My gorgeous and talented friend Cath is back at Melbourne International Comedy Festival with a brand new show, SHIFT!
I’ve always found it fascinating how Cath juggles her professional career psychiatric nursing, with her passion and love for comedy. She nails both but add in family, friends, and life as well as your two work lives…. things get interesting.
It’s on from 5-17th April and we’ve got 2 x Double Passes to giveaway.
Tell us when and how you have lived a double life?

We invite you to explore the craziness of a way of life where strange is normal, and normal is strange as Cath Styles presents her new show SHIFT at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2016.
Cath Styles has been a psychiatric nurse for 25 years, and a comedian for 10. Between the nights, evenings, weekends and holidays she’s worked in both jobs, she’s never had a weekend off. Ever! Shift is the show where both her worlds collide, and explores her on again, off again, love affair with her (paying!) job.
