Heart & Home Soy Wax Candles from History & Heraldry

Cody with Candles - History & HeraldryMmm, you should experience the beautiful scents in our store at Westfield Chermside! We have just received the amazing range of Heart & Home candles from History & Heraldry. These fragrance-rich natural soy wax candles are created to fill your home with evocative scents and designed to look stylish anywhere. The selection of fragrances capture every mood from sweet floral meadows to the aromas of home baking, while powerful wood–based scents compliment truly feminine perfumes. Each has a subtle twist to ignite your imagination as well as your senses.

History & Heraldry have worked alongside some of the leading perfumers in the industry to create a range of three distinctive aromas that will envelop the heart of your home:

  1. Bring the outside in with Cottage Garden
  2. Conjure up delectable culinary delights with Country Kitchen
  3. Lose yourself in the indulgent aromas of Pure Bliss

History & Heraldry’s decision to use the finest American soy wax lays at the core of the development of Heart & Home range as they share the same concerns that our customers do about the impact the products they manufacture have on the environment. Soy wax is renewable, sustainable and kinder to our world.

French Vanilla Candle - History & HeraldryMade from a unique soy bean formulation, this non-toxic wax is not only biodegradable, but creates a candle that burns slowly at a lower temperature than paraffin wax. Choosing Heart & Home’s soy-based candle range means you will not only enjoy a more enhanced scent experience, but you can do so in the knowledge that this gorgeous indulgence has its heart in nature.

The fragrances include:

  • Mediterranean Fig
  • Rambling Rose
  • French Vanilla
  • Cinnamon Spice
  • Sweet Cherries
  • Welcome Home
  • True Enchantment
  • Simply Spa
  • Sea Grass
  • Fresh Linen (and more!)

New: “Our Love Was on the Wing” by Local Nudgee Authors

Our Love Was on the Wing

Our Love Was on the Wing – Jim Healy & Mizpah Closkey

At Nextra Chermside Newsagency, we endeavour to support our local community and share their creative successes with our wonderful customers. Today we are proud to announce our store at Westfield Chermside will stock Our Love Was on the Wing by Nudgee author Regis Hickey.

Regis Hickey, the principal author of Our Love Was on the Wing has taken the characters Michael and Mary from the famous Irish song The Fields of Athenry and created a novel set in the convict settlement of Sydney in the early 1800s. While Regis has used the last three years to write the novel he had been considering the idea for the past twenty. Currently he is living in the retirement village of Viridian at Nudgee, Queensland. This is his first novel.

Mary Murphy, the contributing author is currently teaching at Unity College, Caloundra. Mary would say her role was an advisory one and Regis was the principal author.

The pseudonyms the author, Regis Hickey, and contributing author, Mary Murphy, have used in Our Love was on the Wing are those of their grandparents, Jim Healy and Mizpah Closkey.

This novel successfully blends both the historical and fiction so that its readers will get insights into the personalities of authentic Governors and early English settlers of Australia as well as possible characters that could have existed at that time. There’s romance, pathos, failure and success with the heroes and the villains. You will think you have the plot worked out only to find out you have not: and finally when you have read the last sentence you will want to thank both Regis and Mary for having given you a most enjoyable read.

It is the type of novel that film directors and TV Mini-series producers are looking for as Australians are becoming more and more interested in their past. Make sure you read it before you see it. An ideal Christmas present and holiday read.

Our Love Was on the Wing can be purchased from Nextra Chermside Newsagency for $19.95. Hurry, limited stock available.
