Someone doing something positive for his wife:
An exciting event began on the 1st of September of this year, when former Brumbies Coach Andy Friend and his wife Kerri began their 5000km journey from Cooktown to Canberra to raise awareness and money for Acquired Brain Injury.
The FRIENDly Ride is a three month Mountain Bike challenge for Andy [...]
The Canberra Times has an intriguing piece on musings by the Chief Minister on introducing a “safe tattooing” service to the prison, possibly as a reward for good behaviour, to reduce blood bourne infections.
If being covered in tats is once again a prison thing will this reduce their fashion appeal in wider society?

StuffYouMayHaveMissd has YouTubed a partial wardrobe malfunction for a Raiderette.
We’re sure she’d be fine with the next size up.
Word reaches us that April’s Caravan, beloved itinerant vintage clothing providores of the Inner North, have after some false starts found a permanent home at Lyneham shops.

I did a search for my question but was unable to find an answer. I need a dress to wear to a gathering my brother is holding, now my brother is rather fancy and my converse chuck Taylor’s are unwelcome.
I need a dress and some shoes i am more comfortable in older styles of clothing, [...]
The ABC brings word that the number of solariums in the ACT has dopped from 17 to 4 following last year’s red tape tsunami dumped onto the industry.
The Cancer Council is not satisfied and wants more rigorous compliance to drive the survivors onto the streets.
But having acquired a taste for the vast riches to be [...]
I have noticed recently that when I get my clothes back from the dry cleaner that they are clean, but have a faint wiff of piss.
Yep, someone is cleaning my clothes using ammonia, and the smell is persisting.
This has been an ongoing issue for a while now and I’m fed up with it. [...]
I can’t help noticing a lot of ladies are wearing hats today.
Possibly because of a certain horse race.
So if you’d like to send us a photo of your, or a colleagues’ hat we’d love to run a gallery.
Just send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org .

I happened across this development application for an extension of the Tuggeranong Hyperdome today which, amongst its extension plans confirms that Myer is closing it’s doors with a remodel of the layout will be replaced with a Big W and other smaller stores.
I can’t say I’m that surprised by the impending closure, as the store [...]
So last night I had my name on the door for the opening of the new bar on Garema Place, which (in the interests of disclosure) a friend has a stake in.
It’s called Honkytonks, it’s where Mama’s Trattoria used to be, and it’s going to be a bit of thing (at least until the new [...]
I’ve recently moved here from Sydney and am wondering if anyone knows of a good tattoo place in the ACT.
I have an unfinished sleeve that i need to get finished, plus start a new one on my leg.
I have heard of good ones in Lyneham , Tuggeranong and Queanbeyan. Just want some [...]
A lot of piercing parlours are closing or are closed at the moment. Adrenaline doesn’t do piercings anymore; Justin’s is closed; Tattoo power doesn’t do piercings anymore either.
Other than Steel Demon who I’d really not rather go to (Botched a piercing), Is there anywhere else other then Freestyle that people would recommend for piercings [...]

I’m getting married in Dec, 2011 so was wondering if anyone could recommend an experienced make-up artist who could do my wedding make-up?
Thanks in advance,
I recently got a pretty average haircut and don’t particularly want to go back to the hairdresser to get it fixed. Her skills don’t seem to be good enough to be able to fix it.
Any suggestions of a really good hairdresser who would understand what would suit my face shape and hair type?

Greetings fine folk! Canberra Tweed is very proud to present to you the Fourth Canberra Tweed Ride.
We shall be departing from Gorman [...]
Just wondering if anyone knows of some great second hand boutiques or markets in Canberra? Mostly looking for vintage clothing and jewellery at a fairly cheap price.
I know of the Salvos and Vinneys but not aware of any specialty boutiques or markets.
The Canberra Times is giving credence to research undertaken for QIC that the Canberra Centre is actually good for retailers outside of the belly of the beast.
Rival traders have long claimed QIC has bought shops in Garema Place and sucked the life out of City East with its multi-levels of car parking and enclosed retailing.
Looking for some recommendations on a good men’s tailor in the ACT that will do either made-to-measure or bespoke business shirts.
Has anyone had a good experience?
I’m calling out to other athletic fat necked men to suggest some brands or stores I can buy some more shirts from without bleeding dry.
[ 22 July, 2011; ] With Costco due to open in a week and a half, I thought I would have a poke around the internet to see what we are in for. Having been to Costcos in Canada and the US, I am excited about the prospect of discounted groceries but also wondering how the typical Canberra home will [...]
I would like to point out some of the fashion crimes that are being committed every day in Canberra. I am aware to all Rioters are well dressed, fashion forward (or at least age appropritae) but what is going on with the rest of the population?
– Leggings/jeggings/tights worn as an item of clothing, without [...]
If you have a teenage daughter… then most probably you should alert them to the existence of an amazing local magazine called LIP… that’s if they don’t know already!
With a tag line that reads: ‘The magazine for girls who think, feel, create, speak out, live.’ It gives itself big boots to fill – but fill [...]

I don’t currently work in a job where I need to suit it up day to day, but something has suddenly come up this week and I need formal business attire by Thursday. Unfortunately, I’m size 22 and a woman (the men get their own big and tall suit store but there’s no such equivalent [...]
Brand Depot today and noticed that the back area had been gutted
So I was just thinking about something and it made me angry. The first thing I decided to do was post it to RiotACT.
So 5 years ago, I was 13 and I was young and naive (still am ) and wanted to get into modeling.
I saw an advert for Victoria’s Models and phoned them [...]
ACT Policing are investigating an aggravated robbery at a hairdressing salon last night (Wednesday, June 8).
About 7pm, a man entered the salon on Coranderrk Street in the City. The man approached the front counter while carrying a knife and demanded money from the female store owner. The store owner opened the till and the offender [...]
I think by the time prominent local feminist Melinda Tankard Reist had joined others speaking of the folly of reclaiming the word “slut”, it had become clear that SlutWalk wasn’t something to be taken seriously.
No surprise then that of the almost 800 who RSVPed on Facebook for Canberra’s walk, less than 100 actually attended.
