from the editor

“Will it be easy? Nope. Will it be worth it? Absolutely! Hello fellow Junkies!First things first. I would just like say thank you to all our readers and subscribers for being patient and waiting an extra month for this edition, which is a little later than usual. However, we think you’ll agree it was well worth the wait!One thing I’ve learnt is that we don’t always have the right answers to the questions life throws at us, and we shouldn’t assume anything: we can only give advice from our own experience and what we know to be right for ourselves. I think if we can live as closely as possible to nature’s template and begin each day stepping as lightly as possible on our planet, then we can only…

Dear Junkies,I just wanted to drop you a note to say firstly how much I love your magazine, from beginning to end. All the articles represent your ethos, which is shared by myself and so many of my friends. I particularly like the recipes which I look forward to recreating in my home each time. The middle eastern Koshari was one of my very favourites. The photos are beautiful and after reading the text I’m hooked. My family are grateful too. We are big fans!!!Cheers, Jessica, New CastleHey Junkies team,I’m a fan, just wanted to put it out there. Secretly stealing my girlfriends copy and was pleasantly surprised.

evening dresses throughout the eras

One of our favourite things to do here in Ballarat is to pay a visit to Jenn and Christine at That Little Vintage Shop. It’s the best I have ever been to (and I have been to a lot!). There are vintage clothes packed to the rafters, along with hats, gloves and accessories. It’s not just me – most people turn off their phones when they enter the shop. This is a vintage emporium where you don’t want to be disturbed. Prepare to be completely lost in another world of vintage gorgeousness.Owner Jennifer Bottomley has been in the vintage business for years, and has many a story to tell. She has a wealth of knowledge, not only about where her vintage clothes came from, but the material, the designer…

junkies news

BYO or not to BYO? At Junkies HQ, we often find ourselves asking: “Can you bring your own containers to the supermarket?”Coles and Woolworths have reportedly said they don’t have any immediate plans to start letting customers bring their own reusable plastic containers to fill at their delis, while IGA report they leave it up to individual stores to make the call.“Hmmm…Why won’t supermarkets let people use their own containers?” we ask again.Coles reports that its no-reusable container policy is based on hygiene concerns. Coles has been reported to state that it does not allow customers to bring in their own containers to use as it poses a health and safety risk. Woolworths has reported a similar view stating food and safety issues.According to the information that can be…
