OPSM

By | Blog

As part of its commitment to improving the eye health of all Australians, OPSM has developed a free app to help people get a better understanding of their vision. The OPSM Eye Check App is a fast and simple way to check your vision and help you determine whether you should get your eyes tested, taking just two-three minutes to complete. The app takes users through a series of screenings selected by OPSM’s optometrists for Near Distance, Contrast Sensitivity, Distance Vision, Astigmatism and Colour Vision. The innovative app helps users gauge if they have an issue with any of these areas of their vision and book an eye test at their local OPSM store directly from the app.

The new OPSM Eye Check App is available to download for free from the iTunes App Store or Google Play.

For more information on OPSM services, visit OPSM at Central Square Ballarat or www.opsm.com.au

The OPSM Eye Check App is not a substitute for a full eye test with an optometrist.

Back to school, back to you

By | Blog

Image 4The long summer holidays are so wonderful to spend time with family and friends, with hot days that seem to never end, trips to the beach and the pool, ice cream treats and warm nights filled with laughter, food on the barbecue and cool sea breezes. Although the days roll by, time seems to stand still and the space between Christmas and New Year drifts lazily into the past.

All of a sudden, the realisation hits, the holidays are due to end. It’s back to work and back to school, back to deadlines and routine, back to making lunches and after school activities, watching the weeks fly by and the end of another year will be here in the blink of an eye.

Hang on to some of the relaxed holiday vibe and celebrate the return to the work/school routine with a little retail therapy.

Enjoy the freedom that the school term can bring by browsing the shops at your leisure, trying clothes on without kids nagging you, sit down for lunch and eat straight away without any disruption! Escape the oppressive heat of February and get back to you!

Come to discover Central Square Ballarat.

 

Grab a denim jacket

By | Blog

Meet Ema, stylish local mum and owner of Style Rebellion, a personal stylist with the skills to help you look and feel fabulous.

086Who better to ask for styling tips than someone who styles for a living? During Frocktober, Ema is sharing her four key styling tips for any woman looking to find the perfect outfit to suit their shape, style and budget. This is her final piece of advice for Frocktober followers.

“Denim will never go out of fashion.

The denim jacket features heavily this season in several lighter shades. Perfect to team with a wrap dress for those cooler days and nights. The denim dress is going strong and a great casual piece for those spring days. Just Jeans, Rivers, Supre and Suzanne Grae all have great denim designs.

Remember style is individual and should reflect your own personality. Fashion is supposed to be fun, so play around with it. Always wear a smile and be confident!”

Ema is in charge of the Central Square Instagram feed for the month of October and taken on the challenge to style 31 frocks in 31 days in celebration of Frocktober. Ema’s looks will be on Instagram under the #31frocksin31days and will include spring fashion looks for young girls, teenagers, young ladies and mature ladies.

Central Square Ballarat has taken on the Frocktober cause as a fundraising effort in 2018 to help support the women of Ballarat. So many women, friendship groups and families in Ballarat have been affected by cancer and we want to engage our retailers, shoppers and local supporters to get involved as a way of raising awareness and supporting the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.

You can donate to Frocktober at our fundraising page.

Thank you for your support.

Accessories make the outfit

Who better to ask for styling tips than someone who styles for a living? During Frocktober, Ema will share her four key styling tips for any woman looking to find the perfect outfit to suit their shape, style and budget.

“Accessories make the outfit. Stick to your usual fashion style and add an on-trend feature with the right shoe, bag or item of jewellery.

Invest in a great pair of sneakers. This fashion trend is holding fast, including wearing sneakers with suits! Spendless Shoes have a great range of sneakers to suit everyone’s style.

The strappy heel is very popular and out in array of colour this season. Making it easy to mix and match with your clothing. Valpied Shoes have got you covered this season with their new heel collection. Myer have a fantastic range of shoes, jewellery, bags and headwear for the upcoming Spring Racing Carnival. Portmans and Noni B also have a great selection of outfits perfect for racing. For the men you can’t go past Roger David and Myer. Also check the range of bags in Strandbags.

Statement earrings, another trend this spring, with bigger and bolder is better. You cannot go past Lovisa for their selection of earrings. Don’t forget the new Mimco range in Myer. ”

Who better to ask for styling tips than someone who styles for a living? During Frocktober, Ema will share her four key styling tips for any woman looking to find the perfect outfit to suit their shape, style and budget.

“The biggest trend this season is Print!

Floral, polka dots and stripes feature heavily this spring, from dresses, tops, pants and even suits. Update your wardrobe with at least one print piece. Try a floral wide leg pant, a polka dot wrap dress or a stripe blazer. The wrap dress with ruffles is very popular this season and available in floral, polka dot or stripes. Myer, Portmans and Target all have a great range of dresses, pants and blazers in print.”
