A friend of mine referred me to Adele at ‘Simply Gorgeous Health and Beauty’ to have my nails manicured. After loving what she had done to my hands, I decided to treat myself to a facial. I have had facials before and thought I knew what to expect… Oh how wrong was I! As Adele prepared me for the treatment I knew this was going to be no ordinary facial.” [Linda’s description of the facial procedure has been withheld, so that all is not revealed to future clients :), however we can tell you that she fell into a semi conscious slumber] “It took me some time to wake from my 60 minutes of pure pampering and when I did, the first thing I said was ‘how often can I have one of these?’ I recommend Adele at Simply Gorgeous Health and Beauty for all your beauty needs and if looking for that extra special treat for yourself or a friend a facial from Adele is a must!

Ballet Dancer at Age 4
Like many high-achieving professionals, Adele’s passions have influenced her professional success. A native of Salisbury, Rhodesia, Adele was a ballet dancer with the Rhodesian National Ballet winning the role of ‘Clara’ in their production of ‘The Nutcracker’ aged 13.
Modelling the Mini Skirt in the 1960’s
She was also a childhood model. A foray into the world of musical theatre, the professional production of ‘My Fair Lady’, later inspired her to undertake a diploma with the United Kingdom’s International Health and Beauty Council where she was Student of the Year.
As a Makeup Artist and Beauty Therapist
She emigrated to South Africa shortly after and opened her own dance school teaching Ballet, Jazz and Tap but also worked as a makeup artist and beauty therapist in Theatres, Hospitals, Salons and aged care facilities. She did this for 20 years until moving to Australia.
It was in Canberra that she continued to teach dancing and choreograph routines. She also realised a long-held interest in exploring bodywork therapies by becoming a certified Pilates Matwork instructor. Always looking to extend her own ‘powerful personal journey’ and be the best role model she can be, Adele has recently extended her interest in sewing and fashion to become a Professional Stylist.
World championships in Dubai 2015
She has also qualified as a Personal Trainer, losing 10 kg along the way and dropping from a size 10 to a size 6. Her latest interest ventures have included Body Building winning the title of NSW South Coast 50+ Champion in September 2014 and qualifying to go to the World championships in Dubai 2015 where she won two silver medals for Australia!
Winning a role as a cabaret dancer in the Canberra Philharmonic’s Musical theatre production of ‘Cabaret’ in July 2014, and performed in the Canberra Philharmonic’s Musical theatre production of ‘Evita’ March 2015. She is currently rehearsing for the musical ‘Anything Goes’ to be performed in Canberra in August 2016.
What People Say About Smile Fitness
I have been going to Adele and using her Simply Gorgeous service for nearly 2.5 years. When Adele told me she was completing her Certificate in Fitness to become a Personal Trainer I really made the conscious decision then to use this service as well once she was qualified. I have struggled with my weight and fitness levels my entire life but since using the FitPlus Service I am now well on my way to achieving my weight and fitness goals. The fitness programs that Adele has created for me are both challenging but also fun and I am able to do my workout either at home or the gym, depending on my day. While I still have a long way to go, I am confident that with Adele’s help, I will be able to achieve these goals. Thank you again Adele.
If you are looking for a place to go to get all your beauty needs met, then visiting Adele at Simply Gorgeous Health and Beauty is the answer you’ve been looking for. I have been a client of Adele’s for many years and regularly visit to get my little patch of ‘me’ time! I regularly use Adele’s waxing services and have manicures, pedicures and the most fantastic facials that really relax and revitalise both the skin and the mind. The Salon is based in a quiet area, where parking is never a problem and it is truly a peaceful experience. Adele is the most professional beauty therapist, with exceptionally clean premises and on-time appointments. I highly recommend giving Adele a call, you’ll never need to look for another Beauty Salon again!
Dear Adele, I would just like to thank you SO much for helping me on my Weight loss journey. I never thought that I could do it….well I new that I could do it, I just didn’t know how… With all your help on what to do and what to eat and your support, I did it!!!! 24 kg!!!! WOW even with all my injuries that I had before I started on this journey… (I must admit that I was using them as an excuse not to even try to lose weight).
But with you there were no excuses just good advice. I now have a much better outlook on life and my 4 year old can now put her arms around my waist to hug me and that feels amazing!!! I’m never going back to my old ways!!! Thank you.
I have been visiting Simply Gorgeous Health and Beauty for a number of years now, usually for face wax, and have always found Adele to be very professional, on time, and up for a chat whilst the job is being done. Also I have had a lot less pain from the waxing since I have been going to her. Yesterday I had a one hour facial, which was a birthday present from my daughter and son-in-law and was the best present ever. One hour of being pampered and creamed and I came out forgetting that I was 72. My last comment was “that it was worth having a birthday for that facial”. Thanks Adele
Looking for quality beauty treatment? You should try Simply Gorgeous Health and Beauty Salon. I use Adele’s services regularly and I am very impressed with every aspect. She has exceptionally clean premises and provides an excellent and professional service. The shellac nail polish lasted four weeks and I still did not have a chip. Adele also gives massages to die for. Her facial treatments make your skin glow, you feel revitalised and healthy. Adele’s waxing services and eyebrow/eyelash tinting are terrific too. Try Simply Gorgeous Salon you will not be disappointed.
I started personal training sessions with Adele in October 2013. As a go-kart racer I need to be fit and Adele is helping me with my overall fitness and my core strength, both important for kart racing. The core work is very useful because it means I can hold a good position in my seat especially through corners where g-forces tend to push you around. The general fitness helps in two ways, with stamina so I can drive multiple races in a day and not be completely exhausted at the end of the day and with the weight which means I have to add less lead to my go kart to keep me at minimum weight for my race class.
I would love to invite you to receive the same experience I receive. I have my nails, waxing and Gel toes carried out by Adele on a regular basis and have had for a number of years now. To be able to receive such a high standard of service, professionalism in a clean salon is a absolute pleasure.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Adele for any treatments. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly with any further questions 0404857929
I was absolutely thrilled to hear Adele was entering the fitness industry. I engaged Adele in the New Year to help me with my fitness. Adele provided me with a personal program that I could exercise from home, absolutely love it. Adele and I went through each individual exercise prior to me engaging the exercises at home making sure each exercise was correctly executed. The on-going support and texts I have received from Adele to inspire me, have been wonderful. Adele’s expertise has been rewarding for myself and the family. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adele to others.
I would love to share the experience of having a fabulous personal trainer who has provided me with expert knowledge, workout program and eating plan, using the equipment I have available and time, to assist me to achieve my goals. In doing this Adele from FitPlus has also been my beauty therapist for over 5 years.I recommend all my friends, family and associates to Adele’s fabulous services; Simply Gorgeous and FitPlus.A little joke we have… we call it being ‘Adele’d’.
Service is professional, warm and friendly. Irresistible prices and convenient location. Many options to select and always new products and services to try. Pleasing atmosphere where you can lie back and enjoy. Loyal clientele due to the impeccable services received… and yes, has my full support and all I need to say is “Simply Gorgeous”. Thanks Adele, warm regards.
I have become a regular customer of ‘Simply Gorgeous Health and Beauty’ since my first visit over a year ago. I am impressed by the professional manner of Adele and enjoy the setting and experience. I am pleased with the result of the work done and have recommended the service to my friends.
I’ve been coming to see Adele and using the Environ products for many years and I’m still amazed at how I am not ageing. The Environ products are the best I’ve ever used and at a fraction of the cost of others. I’m very grateful Adele was recommended to me by a friend. I recommend her and her products to all. Thanks Adele
Adele, I want to thank you for the work you have done on my nails. They look the best they ever have. I love them and they have given me the confidence to show my hands to others. Thank you and I look forward to being one of your most regular clients in 2013.
Very reliable, friendly, professional service. Convenient local location. No parking problems!! Highly recommended. Pristine premises. A wonderful experience.
Nothing creates calm and re-centres the soul like a stopover at Adele’s every month… it’s essential when you live and breathe family and work to top up your emotional bank account.
I enjoy your boot camps so much. I may struggle at times but what is it worth if you don’t feel as though you are working hard. Thanks.
