I write for Weekend Notes and I take photographs, usually sunsets and sunrises. Occasionally I include my photos in my articles. I like to promote Geelong, and activities around Geelong.

Melbourne Central Shopping, Discounts, Specials, Charities, Appeals
Melbourne Central Shopping Centre has over 300 stores. I wanted to include some of the Discounts and Specials on offer at the Melbourne Central stores, as I didn't really feature many shops in my first Melbourne Central article.
I started to research some of the shops that are based in the Melbourne Central Shopping Centre. I was amazed at some of the great acts of goodwill that some of the stores are doing to assist others in the community.
This article features some of the stores, the products they sell, and the community projects that some of the stores are currently undertaking.

Sass & Bide have partnered with Make-A-Wish® Australia to create a new limited edition necklace. All proceeds from the sale of the "Sass & Bide" star necklace will be donated to help make wishes come true for children who have life-threatening medical conditions.
Over the last two years "Sass & Bide" have raised over $160,000 through sales of the "Sass & Bide" star necklace.

It's good to see that Jeanswest caters for men as well as women. I often feel that men get left out when it comes to a great range of clothing and fashion.
