Spring Trends at Marina Square

As the days get warmer and our wardrobes change, so should our hair and beauty routines. We’re checking in on the latest spring tips and tricks in health and beauty at Marina Square.

Beauty

Tidy up your bathroom this spring. Go through your beauty cabinet and remove items that you don’t use and gift any unused products to your bestie.

Priceline also recommend giving all of your make-up brushes and sponges a deep clean!

Open your eyes to gorgeous eyelashes with ProfessioNail. Use the range of coloured lashes to make your eyes seems brighter, it’s the perfect way to change up your look for spring. Don’t forget to ask for Stunning Mega Volume & Design Colour Lashes next time you’re in store.

Hair

It’s important to treat your hair according to season. Switch up your haircare routine, change your moisturizing shampoo and/or conditioner for a formula for normal hair. The extra moisturizing ingredients can make hair heavy in hotter conditions.

If you’re looking for a spring style to see you through the showers and sunshine, try a braided top knot. It’s is an effortless and chic option. Put hair in a ponytail, braid, then twist around itself and pin. Go for extra texture to give you an edge.

Extra points go to perfectly accessorised hair, opt for barrettes and bejewelled hair slides to keep shining in spring.

Visit your local hairdresser for a more radical change. Book in for a spring trim with Le Beaute, your hair experts.

Body and Mind

As our social calendars fill-up, it’s still important to take time-out. Consider booking a massage at Natural Power Massage or a float session at Saltuary for a relaxed body and mind.

Chef Dad

This Dad is a hands-on cook. He’s the king of the kitchen and a pretty good Jamie Oliver impersonator. Why not treat Chef Dad to BBQ supplies and a beer?

Protect your eyes with Miss Specs Appeal

Do you work long hours in front of a computer or screen? And does this leave your eyes feeling tired and dry? You may also experience headaches and neck pain. The culprit is likely to be blue light and eye strain. Learn more about blue light and eye strain from your local optometrist at Miss Specs Appeal.

What is Blue Light and where does it come from?

Blue light is the shortest wavelength and has the highest energy on the electromagnetic spectrum. You’ll find it everywhere, including digital devices (TVs, smartphones, computers, tablets), LED lighting and even the sun.

What does it do to our eyes and overall health?

Over 70% of adults who use electronic devices experience digital eye strain, migraines, headaches or neck pain from continued exposure to blue light. All blue light induces stress that can damage cells at the back of our eyes.  This high level of exposure can affect our daily mood and disrupt our body’s sleep pattern.  Not only does exposure to blue light have harmful effects on our eyes, but it can negatively impact our overall health and wellbeing.

How can we protect our eyes from blue light?

You can get on top of symptoms by wearing blue light blocking glasses for a comfortable, relaxed vision in front of screens. Our protective blue light lenses reduce unwanted exposure, reflect harmful rays and help improve eye strain symptoms.

Who most needs blue light protection?

Everyone should take precautions against the harmful effects of blue light. Especially those with prolonged exposure to blue light. This means all of the Netflix bingers, late-night gamers and hard workers. By purchasing a pair of blue light glasses, we can take steps to avoid the negative effects caused by blue light.

How can Miss Specs Appeal help?

We provide a range of affordable, quality eye wear with unique styles to suit every personality. Blue light filters can come in both prescription or non-prescription lenses and can be fitted to your frames of choice. Our eye tests are bulk billed, and we provide a thorough, customised service using the latest eye screening technology.  Come in and talk to our Optometrist Dr. Julia Ong today!

Meet the Chef

Known for adding his colourful flair to the menu at Mosman’s The Mews, Chef Ryan Cheng Qui now calls the kitchen at Marina Square’s Leaf Café & Co his home.

He’s delivered a stellar shake-up of the existing menu with inventive dishes like breakfast gnocchi or lighter than air Matcha French toast. We sent Chef Ryan a few questions to get the low-down on his foodie ideas.

Q. How did you get started as a chef?
A. I love food, so I wanted to make it myself. That passion for food made me a chef.

Q. What about food inspires you?
A. I love using fresh and interesting ingredients. I get to play and be creative with them and then share those flavours with loved ones, friends and customers.

Q. What did you add to the new menu?
A. Breakfast Eton mess, miso mushie, breakfast gnocchi, roasted pork scotch fillet, salmon Wellington.

Chef Ryan’s love for food shines through in his new, inventive menu. Classic flavour pairings and clever new twists bring his amazing dishes to life.

Q. Which Australian ingredients do you love cooking with?
A. Eggplant, beef, salmon, potato and so many more. I love locally sourced ingredients. They’re great for flavour and support local producers.

Q. What would you love to add to the menu in the future?
A. It all depends on the season, but it’s important that we use locally sourced products in our food. I love to know where all of my ingredients come from and how they’re produced – it helps me maintain quality and flavour in all of my dishes.

Q. If you were stranded on a desert island, which food items would you look for?
A. I’ve never thought about it! I guess I would think about how to survive first. Then I’d start with water and fruit, until I could find more interesting flavours in my new surroundings.

Ryan’s love of food is clear. We love what he is doing with fresh flavours and inventive dining at Marina Square. Especially the new seasonal truffle menu, available for a limited time.

Now that you know a little more about the man behind the menu, don’t forget to taste it. Dine at Leaf Café & Co Wentworth Point next time you visit Marina Square.

The secret Floating Forest

A piece of history just a stone’s throw from Marina Square.

While there are fascinating locations all over the city, one of the best places to see Sydney’s rich industrial heritage is the Parramatta River. It’s no surprise that one of the most interesting relics of the past is just offshore from Wentworth Point.

If you look carefully along the shore south of Marina Square, you’ll see it: the SS Ayrfield. But it might not seem like a boat at first, because the first thing to catch the eye is a beautiful tree growing through the hull. It’s a majestic collision of Sydney’s industrial history and its natural world.

The SS Ayrfield was built in the United Kingdom in 1911. Originally called the SS Corrimal, it was a collier (a steam-powered coal transport ship) weighing 1,140 tonnes and ran between Sydney and Newcastle.

In World War II it was purchased by the Commonwealth of Australia and used as a supply transport ship to assist American troops in the Pacific. After the war, it returned to its previous role as a collier under the Miller Steamship Company, often travelling to the company’s terminal in Blackwattle Bay. In 1972 it was finally decommissioned at age 61.

The old ship was taken to Homebush Bay for breaking up, but in the middle of the process work ceased at the shipwrecking site. The vessel – like several others nearby – was abandoned in its half-demolished state.

And then nature took over.

107-years old, the Ayrfield now resembles a floating forest. It was rediscovered in the bay in the last ten years, overgrown with huge mangrove trees.  The site is popular with photographers and tourists, but it can still be overlooked by many. Round out your day at Marina Square with a visit to the look-out point.

How to find it

Homebush Bay is about 30 minutes from downtown Sydney by car, but there are also bus and train routes. Don’t overlook the Darling Harbour ferry as an option to get there either.

The site is a half-hour walk from Rhodes Station, or 15-20 minutes from Marina Square. Once you get to the Olympic Park Archery Centre, it’s a stroll across the road to the waterfront. The ship can be seen most clearly from the walkway there.
