Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Coronavirus is more of a reason to sort out the stadium

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, It's easy to say things shouldn't be done because we need to focus on Covid-19 elimination, but maybe that's more of an argument to sort out the stadium plan. Read the story below.

Hello Ladies,

As many of you have seen, I have started a Lash and Brow studio. At the moment, I offer a Classic Lash set with a very specific map. A map? That's lash artist speak for the pattern we use to decide which length goes where.

I would like to test a new lash map out and I'm looking for models who would be willing to give it a try and be happy with before and after photos which I will publish on social media. Your lashes need to be healthy as I will be applying a longer length. The set is valued at $129 but since I'm in test phase, I'm charging my 2-week fill price of $65. Please click on the link below if you are keen. Only 7 spots up for grabs.
Please message me if you're interested.
Thanks
