Lily Room – Chatswood

August 1st, 2015


Article by Guest Contributor, Romel Kouyan

You often read about the latest treatments and lasers promising the world, but how often do you walk out of a clinic after a treatment feeling 10 years younger?

I was recently commissioned to trial Laser Genesis and document my thoughts on the overall treatment. The timing was impeccable as my skin was feeling slightly tired, so I was definitely cheering.

Laser Genesis uses high power microsecond pulses at high repetition rates to safely heat the dermis, stimulating collagen and reducing redness. The procedure utilises non-invasive laser technology to safely and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture and diffuse redness and scars. Most patients will see subtle, yet consistent results after each treatment, with zero unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation.

Clinic3I found several clinics within my area that offered Laser Genesis, so finding a location wasn’t hard. However, I am a firm believer that every one of your senses needs to be tantalised when splurging money on yourself. After all, you are investing money in yourself to feel good, so an overall experience played a big part in this for me.

One of the first clinics I came across was Lily Room, situated in a very private street in Chatswood. I proceeded to call the clinic and booked my first appointment, much to my delight.

I must say, I was slightly nervous going to my first appointment. I had a million thoughts racing through my head. Was this place going to be any good? Was the treatment going to work, or was my skin going to be worse off?

As I entered Lily Room, the first thing I was welcomed by was the inviting scent throughout the clinic and a friendly face with a beaming smile welcoming me to their clinic. The rooms were beautiful and lit to make you feel very welcomed.

Once I was in the treatment room, the specialist made me feel extremely comfortable and explained how the treatment was going to work and that I would have a course of six treatments. I was also told the laser feels like the sun tingling against your skin.

Treatment time, the eye pads were gently placed on my eyes and the treatment began. I must say, the laser definitely did feel like I was laying in the sun, and in a strange way – I found it extremely soothing and not at all painful, as previously believed.

I have always had fairly good skin, however, it most certainly has its moments. I have to admit, my main concerns have always been my pores and the few fine lines that are creeping up as I am entering my 40s.

After my first treatment, I noticed my skin to be plumper and had a natural glow to it. However, I was promised the final results would be visible after the course of 6 treatments. This however did not stop me from constantly admiring myself in the rear view mirror on my way back in to the office.

As the technician mentioned, the results were most certainly visible after the 6 treatments. My pores are dramatically reduced and the texture of my skin has never felt better, and much to be excitement, the fine lines around my eyes are virtually unnoticeable.

The treatment requires your dedication, as you will be need to frequent the clinic once a fortnight. However, if you are contemplating investing in a laser treatment, do yourself a favor and book yourself in for Laser Genesis.

It takes a lot to impress me, and I can honestly say I am extremely impressed with the treatment and am a devoted fan.

If you are in the Sydney area, do yourself a favor and see the ladies at Lily Room, you will not be disappointed.



A Night With Campbell’s Real Soup Bases and Manu Feildel

May 27th, 2015

Manu & Campbell's Real Soup Bases

I had the opportunity to learn a thing or two in the kitchen with one of Australia’s leading chefs – and what a pleasure it was.

Manu Feildel demonstrated in front of an intimate audience how to cook simple and flavour packed soups using the new range of Campbell’s Real Soup Bases. These soup bases are the perfect way to create amazing winter meals.

Real Soup Bases are made using Campbell’s Real Stock infused with the perfect blend of herbs and spices. The bases are designed to save you the time, cost and hassle involved with buying raw ingredients and cooking from scratch yourself.

With Italian, Asian and Moroccan bases in the Campbell’s range, Manu showed us how easy it is to add a few simple ingredients and create a spectacular looking and tasting meal in as little as 30 minutes which I absolutely loved!

On the front of the carton it tells you what ingredients to add, which I find super handy as I get a little overwhelmed when I go to the grocery store, figuring out what ingredients I need to tie a meal together.

After an enjoyable time learning to make 3 of Manu’s delicious winter soups using Campbell’s Real Soup Bases, I feel I can confidently create some delicious, hearty soups this winter!

To get you started, the team at Campbell’s have come up with tonnes of recipes for you to try, including: Moroccan Lamb & Vegetable Soup, Minestrone Soup, Italian Meatball Soup and Thai Sweet Corn & Chicken Soup.

The Revolutionary Wood-Fired Oven >Summer Must-Have<

October 20th, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-10-16 at 9.22.39 pm

It’s such a fantastic way to impress your family and friends with delicious food straight from your very own wood-fired oven.

It’s a super small product from Uuni. It’s versatile, portable and very easy to use, it will truly revolutionise what and how you can cook outdoors! Screen Shot 2014-10-16 at 9.23.46 pm

At a fraction of the costs of a traditional WFO (wood-fired oven), Uuni blows the competition out of the water. It burns wood pellets which are cheap and efficient, so there’s no need to split wood or play with an axe :)

Uuni 2 is the definitive outdoor kitchen and I’m giving it a big thumbs up! Here’s what it’s all about:

  • Australian Price just $399
  • You light Uuni up and in just 10 minutes it’s ready to cook
  • You can cook or bake all sorts of things with it. Your most obvious choice is delicious wood-fired pizzas. Just 2 minutes and your pizza is done, and you can also use it to cook meat, fish, vegetables, or even desserts!
  • Once done, Uuni packs into a small space for easy storage (although it does look amazing!) or transport. It’s super easy to take with you on a camping trip. It’s smaller than a carry-on suitcase!
  • Made in Finland. Designed in London.

Love LiLo and Uber

May 19th, 2014


I love how the tumultuous life of Lindsay has come-good and she’s now a fabulously chic icon…

Lindsay used the UberJET app on her phone to order a private jet from London to Cannes. As you do.

Staying at the Four Seasons, Lindsay ordered an UberJET on her smartphone to fly out to the Cannes film festival on Sunday (18/05).

After ordering the luxury Cessna Citation 2, provided by private jet and yacht firm Goodwill, which costs €6490, she was picked up at the Four Seasons, in London’s Mayfair district.

She had so much luggage she needed two extra UberLux cars (both BMW 7 Series) to take her to Luton airport where her plane took off at 11am flying to Cannes Mandelieu airport with fashion blogger Vas Morgan and her stylist Manny.

The plane she was in had cream leather seats and mahogany tables. There was an open bar filled with champagne. Hmmm… That could be dangerous for poor old LiLo. (See picture below that she took on the flight for Instagram)

After getting off the jet Lindsay was later seen wearing a glam gold dress (pictured) Participant Media’s tenth anniversary bash aboard thee stunning multimillion dollar superyacht Oasis.

Tough for some isn’t it.

The Woodford Reserve Mothers Day Polo Classic Media Launch

March 26th, 2014

It’s coming up to that time of the year where Sydney’s social set put the day aside to relax in style and watch the polo.

The Woodford Reserve Mother’s Day Polo Classic, to be held at the Kurri Burri Polo Club on Sunday May 11, launched its charity event on Monday evening at Keystone’s hot spot, Rushcutters.

Welcomed with a Woodford premium craft bourbon Sour cocktail then Stella Artois and Veuve Clicquot to follow, with a tasting of the fancy new wine spritz, Bondi Rd by Yellow Tail.

The Mother’s Day event has fast become a landmark society polo event in NSW. What started out as a small family day in the Kurri Burri fields six years ago, has been building into the thousands. The picturesque estate runs along the Hawkesbury River with the Blue Mountains as a back drop, a perfect escape for city dwellers.

Mahalia Barnes is confirmed as the headlining act and is set to perform some soulful numbers on smooth fm’s entertainment stage; Kris Smith will add star power to the Woodford Reserve marquee as their ambassador, and special guest Blanche d’Alpuget, a long standing patron of their chosen charity Inala, will be attending with The Honourable Bob Hawke.
Inala, supporting individuals living with disabilities and special needs, has raised $173K thus far thanks to the support of the event over the years.

Crispy Pork Hoc was matched with Woodford Reserve’s Kentucky Apple, and guests’ taste buds were treated to oysters with Merlot vinaigrette, sardines on toast, tomato and goats curd salad, and for the sweet tooth – Pear and cherry strudel to complete the evening.

Tickets are on sale now and a range of hamper options can be purchased at:

ADRIAN CAN’T COOK with Simone Erdedi – Episode 4

December 4th, 2013

My sister Simone is an inspirational and fun-loving girl.
I adore everything about her and I’m so thrilled that she is one of the great guests on ADRIAN CAN’T COOK.

Simone is a 26 year old girl with Down Syndrome. She jokes, laughs, cries and gets sad – just like any of us. She has shows she loves, singers she adores and loves celebrities.

She is just a down-to-earth person with a huge heart of gold.

Though very quiet and shy, Simone still shows off her talents in the kitchen and teaches me a yummy sweet recipe she learnt at her Disabilities Centre.

I hope you enjoy watching this as much as I did filming it. I hope she inspires you as much as she does me.

Citizen and Erebus Motorsports Partner for 2013 V8 Supercars

December 4th, 2013


It goes without saying that in motorsports time is the Holy Grail. From one hundredths of a second on a lap time, to measuring fuel efficiency and performance, time underpins all aspects of car racing.

CITIZEN, known for its patented precise timekeeping technology, and innovative super light titanium advances, have partnered with the Erebus Motorsports V8 Supercar Team as they race to the leader board of the 2013 V8 Supercars Championship.

Coming to Sydney from December 6th – 8th, the Sydney 500 will roar around the streets of Homebush, a race that tests not only engines and driver skills, but also the time the course takes to complete.

The drivers, Lee Holdsworth, Maro Engel and Tim Slade, of cars #4, #9 and #47 will be wearing the CITIZEN Super Titanium Watch, which is the official watch of the Erebus Motorsport V8 Supercar Team.

For over four decades, CITIZEN have pioneered research into Titanium; breakthroughs in surface hardening technology have allowed CITIZEN to develop Super Titanium which is 5 times harder than stainless steel, yet 40% lighter.

London Fashion Week – “THE FORBIDDEN LIAISONS” Corrie Nielsen RTW SS 2014

September 18th, 2013

Showing at London Fashion Week 2013, Corrie Nielsen enlivens her collection this season with the powerful mix of emotions blazing within the Chinese films ‘Hero’, ‘House of Flying Daggers’ (Zhang Yimou), ‘Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon’ (Ang Lee), ‘The Joy Luck Club’ (Wayne Wang) and ‘In the Mood for Love’ (Kar Wai Wong) – 1950′s China ensnared women and shrouded them away from pursuing love, yet this strengthened their passion, leading to instances of ardent seduction.

Whether out of sheer love, lust or to better their life, women at the time used their grace and charisma to entice powerful men. Yet the balance always shifts, and when they least expect it, true feelings begin to emerge.

Corrie wanted to create something new for S/S 2014, something of her own. She looked to Chinese cinema and Traditional dress, keeping the traditional mandarin collar and clean lines of the tailored traditional Chinese dress and brought it to life with 3D elements by using cotton, wax cotton, fine merino wool, knitted wool and silk chiffon.

Colours are in whites, off whites, taupe, lime green, sea foam green, black and champagne silk with some embellishment of silk organdie, lace and intricate bead work.

The Fashion Festival Bali – It’s a Wrap!

September 3rd, 2013

The inaugural Bali Fashion Festival presented by the magnificent The Stones Hotel Legian closed the festivities over the weekend with a party hosted by TATLER Indonesia magazine. The week-long event played host to a long list of Asian Pacific celebrities, socialites and talent from Australia including Michael and Lindy Klim and Casey Burgess.

BARE runway 1

Locals of the island and tourists from around the world indulged in a fashionable week of workshops, pop-up boutiques and world-class runway shows that featured some of the regions most established and emerging designers.

Michael & Lindy Klim

Leah De Gloria from Project Runway Australia opened The Fashion Festival with her beautiful couture collection, followed by Singaporean label, Gnossem. Balinese labels Uluwatu Lace, Bamboo Blonde, Arturro and Mr & Mrs Wardrobe lead the fashion pack and got the bloggers excited with their traditional prints and flowing ensembles, whilst Jakarta based label, FOXXY, sparkled with a touch of quirk.

Story by Tang designer Christine Tang

Australia has been well represented with Shakahachi, Story by Tang, BARE, State of Georgia and Pared eyewear showcasing their eclectic chic style. Shakuhachi introduced its Cyber-Barbarella range of Space-age grunge and floaty, feminine florals to an adoring crowd of hipsters and fashionistas. Models walked out in wistful prints and girlish silhouettes. Bomber jackets coated in a metallic sheen were paired with playful floral camisoles, figure-hugging patent bustiers mimicked the construction of cosmic-armour – offset by floral kimonos, crisp white blazers and delicate printed organza.

ANG_20130828_The Fashion Festival_The Stones Kuta_52

Nicholas Meimaris, MD & Creative Director for MGroup who produced The Fashion Festival, was thrilled with the activity, “From the original concept of creating an integrated fashion event that would showcase the Pan Pacific region’s emerging and established designers to Bali’s industry and travel audience – it’s exciting to see the Festival come together. The island has become a melting pot of designers, celebrities and artists that have been able to engage and enjoy each other’s creativity.”

ANG_20130828_The Fashion Festival_The Stones Kuta_67

The Fashion Festival has been a stunning showcase of fashion, beauty, style and culture with stunning Indonesian models hair styled by internationally renowned stylist Rob Peetoom.

Meimaris concluded, “We plan to make the event the hero fashion festival for the region and continue to offer our audience and guests an exciting opportunity to experience an international runway production!”
