Marvellous from ROOSTfilmco on Vimeo.
Stationery and leather goods; not the most traditional pair but a perfect union at Marvellous. And that’s what Marvellous is all about, taking vintage styles and adding a modern touch that you’ll fall in love with.
As a completely Australian-owned company, special attention is taken to minimise any possible impact our goods may have on the environment. Marvellous aims to provide more than just functional, durable and quality stationery and leather goods, though they are all of those things too.
Texture and technique is what Marvellous focuses on in every product. The stationery range is made from 100% cotton card stock, so you can be confident in their quality. Each card is created to perfectly fit a 6x4” photo frame to make the memories last longer. Marvellous uses a traditional letterpress technique to make an embossed effect on our cards, and provide custom dusty grey, blind embossed envelopes with every purchase.
Each leather handmade product is hand crafted with love and care using traditional techniques such as lacing and hand tooling. Marvellous uses vegetable tanned leather, this means no nasty chemicals were used in it’s making and has a tendancy to soften and mould to how you use it over time. You can rest assured you’ll get plenty of use out of each Marvellous product.
Marvellous is excited to wholesale the initial stationery range and the pencil case from the handmade leather range.

Bring casual warmth to your table with Simplicity, the latest dinnerware collection from Vera Wang Wedgwood. Simplicity's trio of design themes mixes and matches modern touches with textured elements for a candor that's as relaxing as a conversation among friends.
Ground this stylish look with the Ombre place setting: a gradient wash of organic gray leads to a creamy center that radiates understated elegance.
For tactile style, look to the Cream place setting -- its irregular lines and detailed gray cross-hatching recall the rustic look of handwoven textiles. The Gray place setting reverses colors, to a trendsetting gray landscape overhatched with lines of cream.

Chocoholics can now start dieting with a weight loss program for those lovers of chocolate and haters of diets.
New to the market, The Chocolate Diet is a meal replacement program that allows you to feed your angel by combining healthy natural foods with the goodness of cocoa rich and satisfying shakes to replace two meals a day, but also indulge your devil with a daily chocolate treat high in polyphenol rich cocoa, nature’s new super food.
The Chocolate Diet is endorsed by Dr Lily Stojanovska, world renowned women’s health, nutrition and weight loss expert, who has been investigating the link between good quality dark chocolate and good health for many years.
“Too often a weight loss program makes no provision at all for pleasure, making it just that much harder to follow through. The Chocolate Diet approach is to integrate a specific sweet treat into a healthy low carbohydrate, low fat diet that utilises balance nutrition, proper meals and realistic snacks rather than a punishing regime of denial,” Lily explains.
The polyphenol rich cocoa used in The Chocolate Diet helps to control your appetite and boost your metabolism by switching on fat burning genes. It’s also a rich source of antioxidants and other nutrients that help improve heart function, and stimulates neurotransmitters in your brain that improve general mood and wellbeing.
In addition to the pure high polyphenol cocoa in every shake and treat, The Chocolate Diet is gluten free, naturally high in antioxidants, low in lactose and carbohydrates, and high in protein.
“The Chocolate Diet program can be used for a short time if it’s just a few kilos that need to be lost, or you can use it for a longer period of time if there’s a more significant weight loss goal. The guide included with the program explains exactly what to eat, when and how much in addition to the shakes and treats,” Lily adds.
“The Chocolate Diet program is great news for anyone watching their weight – it will help burn fat and lose weight without feeling hungry. And better still, you get to eat chocolate!” Lily says.
Exclusive to Priceline Pharmacy, The Chocolate Diet is available in two delicious flavours – Belgian Chocolate Indulgence and Chocolate Berry Flambé. The seven-day program package contains 14 shakes (two per day) and seven chocolate treats as a reward.
For more information, visit www.thechocolatediet.com.au – there’s great recipes that feed your angel, and tips to help indulge your devil.
