Years ago, I received a parking ticket on Front Street. How long ago was it? The fixed penalty was $12. Today, it’s probably nearer $10,000. Having been in the US on the day the ticket was issued, and therefore . innocent, I went to Magistrates Court to defend my honour. I took with me my date-stamped passport, credit card slips from Boston on the day of my supposed malfeasance, some clean underwear and the absolute certainty of my innocence. .Ahead of me on the roster of speeders, bad parkers and nosy parkers was an ancient geezer. He railed at high volume about the iniquity of parking tickets for seniors, and was promptly jailed for two weeks for contempt. I kid you not: two weeks in the Graybar Hotel. Two beefy policemen escorted him out. .I was up next. I adopted a more cautious approach. Judges like a bit of respect, they do. When asked to plead, I requested the indulgence of the court for advice. .“What do you not understand about a parking ticket?” asked the Judge, not looking up from writing a letter to his dentist or something equally ridiculous. .“I do not know how to plead, Your Worship,” I said, respectfully. “Briefly describe your problem, Mr., ah,” said Hizzoner. .“I was overseas at the time, may it please your Lordship,” I said, doubting that it would please him very much. “I have brought evidence to that effect,” I continued. “An error must have occurred when the ticket was written, your Highness.” .I had the judge, and the legal system, by the metaphorical throat. I would walk free from that courthouse to carry on my entirely unblemished, non-criminal life. The Judge deliberated for a moment. “Are you the owner of vehicle number, ah, 87529?”“I am, your Holiness,” I replied. “And is it a white Honda sedan?” “It is, your Prominence,” I said, largely because it was. .“And do you think, Mr., erm, that I have nothing better to do than sit here all day deciding who is innocent and who is guilty?” .I thought of saying that was his exact job description, but didn’t. “Then I am tempted to fine you $1,000 or 90 days in jail,” the judge said. This was a revolting development. Sweat starting pouring off every part of me. I didn’t have a grand on me. I didn’t even have $12. The prosecutor intervened. “With the greatest possible respect, your Spaceship,” he addressed the judge, “today is just plea court.” The Judge paused, eyed me coolly, and asked, with enormous sarcasm, “How would you care to plead, Mr., uh?” “Guilty, Sir,” I said instantly, “with an apology for wasting the court’s time.” “Guilty it is then,” said the Judge. “Fined $35. Next?” Later, I recalled that I’d lent the car to a friend while I was away, and she must have parked on Front Street. As a result, I am on record forever as a criminal type. Justice, one might say, was therefore done.

a gosling’s night out Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Blending Master Class BY CANDICE DICKINSON

When I pick up a bottle of white, Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is always my first choice - without question. Naturally I was delighted to hear that Gosling’s would be putting on a Kim Crawford Blending Master Class, one of many special events on the Gosling’s calendar this year. To be honest, I didn’t know what wine blending was however I saw an opportunity to enjoy evening fun with people taller than 3 feet. Excited, I arrived early and was offered a glass to enjoy while overlooking the stunning ocean view at Henry VIII on South Shore. Once settled and introductions began, we learned a little history about Kim Crawford (himself). Wait, what? I was shocked to learn the original Kim Crawford is a man!!! I had always associated drinking Kim Crawford with visions of sophisticated middle (aging well) fashionistas engaging in educated conversations. Wine dream goals. I soon learned that Kim Crawford (a man) sold his brand (and his name) in 2003. Apparently Kim was a country boy who became a family man and a wine maker - he still is a wine maker but can no longer legally associate his name with wine products. Today, Constellation Brands owns Kim Crawford along with other popular brands such as Corona, Mark West and Robert Mondavi, just to name a few. I still do imagine that there are a few savvy women behind the scenes so I will continue to, wine dream on. Next we moved to a private room at Henry VIII adjacent to the sushi bar. Here we would experience the art of wine blending or at least a taste of it. The table was perfectly set with 6 wine glasses that would hold a sample from each vineyard across Marlborough, New Zealand that makes up Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc. We swooshed, sniffed, tasted and discussed the details and learned a little about each region. Each sample was distinct and just the right amount of each would craft a perfect sav blanc. We used an additional glass to to do just this, try our hand at blending our own version of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc. We also had a fresh glass of the real thing, to use as a guide. I must say, I got pretty close and am considering quitting my day job and moving to a vineyard. It was an exciting experience learning about the art of blending. Gosling’s puts on all sorts of events so be sure like them on Facebook and sign up for the next one!

fall window Lili Bermuda BY BRIGITTA WOHLMUTH

Next time you’re in Hamilton, be sure to stop and enjoy the window display at Lili Bermuda’s Boutique on 67 Front Street. Their fall window is all about “cocooning yourself in a feeling”, as the island begins to embrace the snug arms of the autumn season. Beautiful bouquets of cream and orange roses are visible behind the glass which reads, “Autumn is a Second Spring When Every Leaf is a Flower”, a quote by the late French Philosopher Albert Campus. This holds true especially on our Island where there is an abundance of flowers all year round and the trees don’t shed their leaves like in other parts of the world. The window display suggests that the season in Bermuda brings a harmonious blend of nostalgia and excitement as we look forward to the next transition in our lives. Here are the fragrances trending this fall:

SunKiss SunKiss is a flirty fragrance filled with Bermudian fruity notes of sparkling Bermuda Loquat and Juicy Orange Zest followed with Luscious Orange Flower, and finishing with smooth and creamy vanilla beans.

Oleander As part of the Perfumery’s legacy collection, Oleander is an icon of femininity and elegance. Boasting top notes of sweet orange, hibiscus and pink pepper, complimented with a heart of iris and a base of vanilla, it’s soft and powdery scent makes it the ‘little black dress’ of Lili Bermuda’s Ladies Collection. Oleander is finesse paired with sophisticated allure, an immortal treasure, a soft and silken picture of Bermuda’s style and classic elegance.

Paradise True to its name, this is the scent of our idyllic Bermuda Island. With top notes of bergamot, pomegranate and spice leaves complimented with heart notes of honeysuckle and sandalwood – there is nothing left undone in this fragrance. Paradise is an evening gown tailored in liquid velvet. It is a spicy, warm, magnetic and luxurious Oriental composition.

bermuda’s lighthouses Gibb’s Hill & St. David’s BY HORST AUGUSTINOVIC

Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse 117 feet high with the beacon 362 feet above sea level, its light can be seen by ships 40 miles at sea and aircraft 120 miles away. Now the most prominent landmark in Bermuda, the proposal to build Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse was made in the 1840’s. At a cost of £5,500, it was only the second cast iron lighthouse to be constructed. When completed in 1845 the lighthouse was illuminated with kerosene, but is now powered by a 1000-watt electric bulb located in the center of the lens, which is capable of producing up to half a million candlepower. Making a complete revolution every 50 seconds, the lighthouse produces a two-second flash at every two-second interval.

St. David’s Lighthouse A 55-foot high stone structure, the beacon of the St. David’s Lighthouse is 208 feet above sea level and overlooks south shore. It was opened in 1879 and has a fixed white light of about 30,000 candlepower. The original kerosene burner was replaced with a hood vapor burner in 1922. The St. David’s Lighthouse enables navigators to take cross bearings with the flashing beacon emitted by Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse in Southampton Parish.

foliage to fashion Our History in Hats BY RONNIE CHAMEAU B.E.M & DONNA PINK

Foliage To Fashion is a collection of handmade hats made entirely from the island’s natural foliage created by artists Donna Pink and Ronnie Chameau B.E.M. This is the second exhibition of its kind by this creative pair. In 2014 the two artists held Veronica (Ronnie) Chameau, Donna Pink their first exhibition titled B.E.M. “Our History In Hats,” at BSOA in City Hall. After an 8 month labor of love collecting photos and artists renditions of women in Bermuda wearing hats from the 1800’s to the 1950’s, the images were then put together into posters, one for each era. The pair then began creating their interpretations of the hats shown in the posters. The resulting exhibition featuring 28 hats, was a great collaboration of skills and ideas that gave us a unique look at Bermuda’s history from the perspective of fashion. The exhibition was designed to demonstrate how simple, organic materials, not normally considered beautiful, could be used creatively to achieve fashionable looks worn by women throughout the ages. Twelve new hats, along with shoes and handbags, have subsequently been added for the new exhibition and they will all be available for sale. After receiving many questions about how the hats were made and where they could be seen on a regular basis, Donna and Ronnie decided to create a permanent record of the hats from both exhibitions by producing a book which will be launched at the opening of the new exhibition. After many months of preparation, the sixty two page book titled Our History In Hats, Foliage To Fashion, is now ready for sale. The book features 39 hats, a list and photos of the materials used and detailed explanations of how these incredible creations were made. The exhibition opens on Friday, October 27th at the BSOA in City Hall and will run until November 14th. The artists will be available to sign copies of their book on opening night and it will be available at book stores after that. They hope you are inspired by their creations. Enjoy! Our History In Hats - Foliage to Fashion October 27th, Bermuda Society of Arts All hats will be available for sale.

foliage to fashion our history in hats

1800 - 1860

1900 - 1910


Dyed coconut palm matting, royal palm leaves, palmetto trim. – Donna Pink

Dress Bonnet

Palmetto, skeleton magnolia leaves, banana leaves, fennel flowers. – Ronnie Chameau By 1830 bonnets grew to huge proportions and were often decorated with a great deal of ribbon, feathers and flowers. A large brim framed the wearer’s face from the front but hid her profile from the side.

Bird themes were a popular trend for trims during this period.

1910 - 1920

1920 - 1930

Cloche Tall Crown

Dyed Coconut Palm matting, garden banding paper. – Donna Pink The automobile had a big influence on hat styles during this period. Crowns became deeper and closer fitting to the head which provided more security in keeping the hat in place while traveling in an open car.

Dyed coconut palm matting, philodendron stalks – Donna Pink & Ronnie Chameau The well known Cloche was invented by French milliner Caroline Reboux. Due to the fitted, bell-shaped form of her invention, she called it a “cloche” which translates to the English word “bell.” This style of hat became especially popular during the 1920’s and continued to be commonly worn until the early 1930’s.

I’m not sure about you, but I’m absolutely loving this cooler weather. Don’t get me wrong, as the designer of TABS (The Authentic Bermuda Shorts), I’m a sucker for Summer, but the Autumn change is definitely refreshing. It’s the perfect weather to snuggle up and light a deliciously scented candle from Bermuda Candle Company. Available in two sizes and several island-inspired fragrances, these make the perfect gifts. And speaking of presents… Now that the seasons have turned, the countdown to C-day has begun. Yup, Christmas is right around the corner. Yes, I know there are more holidays between now and then but it’s never too early to get a jump start on shopping. Why not get your gifts early in the sales? No one has to be the wiser, and I’m not telling… Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the two most obvious days to take advantage of massive discounts, but plenty of retailers offer corporate and VIP shopping nights so keep an eye out for those invitations. Stop by our flagship in Hamilton to learn more. Visiting in November? Crystal Caves in Hamilton Parish is one of Bermuda’s most popular attractions and is perfect for any day. Displaying impossibly clear water and stalactites and stalagmites millions of years in the making, this hidden gem was the inspiration for one our newest colours, aptly named: crystal caves. Come by the TABS flagship store on 12 Reid Street where, despite the chill in the air, it’s always Summer and let us take some of the stress of holiday shopping from you. :) ☺

inspired by Bermuda Alexandra Mosher Studio Jewellery Bermudian artist Alexandra Mosher draws from the island’s natural beauty to create inspired, sculptural jewellery. “I create expressive and original pieces; they’re certainly conversation starters,” she explains. “There is nothing more fascinating than taking art as we know it and giving it a whole new context on the body. I make sculptures to be worn.” Considering Alexandra’s background as an artist, it is no wonder her intricately sculpted jewellery designs have been influenced by her studies in fine art. “I developed a love for craft at a very young age, and was often creating little presents for my parents out of assembled found objects,” she told us. “My family still has a collection of pretty little things I made them.” Alexandra studied Studio Art at the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts and later, Jewellery Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She launched her line of jewellery in 2005 and since that time has won several prestigious awards for her collections. Her process involves the ancient technique of lost wax casting; she first hand carves her designs in wax and then casts them in silver and gold in limited numbers. “I remember reading an art critic’s review of my work and feeling like I was on the right path when he said he was surprised at how I could create such original pieces at such an affordable price.” Although her work is highly coveted, she has something for every level of collector. Alexandra is perhaps best known for her Bermuda Reef Collection in which she incorporates Bermuda’s famous pink sand into sterling silver and gold to create captivating pieces of wearable art.

“‘Is it a gemstone?’ people ask me, and I just love watching their reaction when I explain how I’ve set our beautiful sand into each unique piece.” She told us that visitors often go on to say their daughter, sister or friend would never forgive them if they didn’t bring a little something from her pink sand collection back home as a gift. “It warms my heart to hear that,” she beams.

Finding a little piece of your own is a delightful experience. You can find the lovely pink Alexandra Mosher Studio Jewellery Boutique in the Washington Mall at #7 Reid Street in Hamilton, her new flag ship store at 5 Front Street in Hamilton and some of her collections at A.S. Cooper & Son’s stores island-wide. For infomation or to shop online call 441 236 9009 or visit

Bermuda . November 2017

stay beautiful What is face serum and why should I use it? Lyndsey Scott-Furtado, Beauty Advisor & Aesthetician, A.S. Cooper & Sons, Ltd.

Although most of us have the cleansing and moisturizing routine down, sometimes we need to take it to the next level to give our skin that extra “oomph”. That’s where a serum comes in. Serums are made up of active, potent ingredients. The molecules in a serum are a lot smaller than a moisturizer. While a moisturizer is essential for hydrating the surface of the skin, a serum can penetrate deeper into the skin to really treat those underlying skin concerns such as acne, pigmentation and premature ageing. Always be sure to apply your moisturizer on top to prevent moisture loss and to help push the serum even further into the skin.

Best for Pigmentation, Sun Damage and Dark Spots Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector by Clinique has been a customer favorite since it hit the shelves. This prescription strength serum helps to fade pigmentation, post acne marks and sun damage, while improving overall tone and clarity of the skin. Studies showed a 53% improvement in dark spots after a 12 week period. Use in the morning and evening for optimal results and always follow with the Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer and a high SPF to prevent future damage and discoloration.

Best for Acne Prone Problem Skin Bare Minerals has hit the nail on the head with its new skincare revamp and the serums are no exception. Blemish Remedy Acne Clearing Treatment Serum is a gentle yet effective way to clear blemishes and purify the skin while reducing redness and inflammation caused by acne. Bare Minerals have always used the most natural and minimal ingredients in their products which makes this serum perfect for teenage skin. Follow with their Smart Combination Lightweight Emulsion for oil-free hydration.

Best for Ageing and Lack of Firmness As our skin ages, our natural collagen production slows down leaving our skin looking less plump, dull and slack. The breakthrough technology in Esteé Lauder’s Perfectionist Wrinkle Lifting Serum is proven to double the skins natural collagen boosting power leaving the skin smoother, supple and more youthful looking. Facial contours are firmer and more defined and lines and wrinkles are visibly plumper. Follow with Resilience Lift Firming & Sculpting Face and Neck Cream for added firming power. For more Beauty advice, book a one-on-one with Lyndsey Scott-Furtado by calling 441-295-3961. A.S. Cooper Main store located at 59 Front Street, Hamilton.

treasures of the sea Atlantic Jewellery Studio BY BRIGITTA WOHLMUTH

“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” Jacques Cousteau Inside of the Washington Mall is a store with ocean blue walls, whimsical marine décor in the windows, and unique handmade jewellery displayed from wall to wall. As you step inside, you get the feeling of being below deck on an elegant pirate ship filled with prized jewels of the Atlantic. And the treasures you will find there are endless. Bermuda Medallions, Historic Hog Penny replicas, a myriad of stackable rings, necklaces created with mystical gems and Bermuda’s iconic pink sand and sea glass… “We do a lot of nautical and ocean themed pieces, but I don’t like to limit myself either” says the shop owner, Jacquie Lohan. With over 20 years experience, you could say she is one of Bermuda’s more accomplished jewellers. She loves working with precious metals and gemstones, but she’s also a passionate surfer whose infatuation with the ocean reveals itself in Atlantic Jewellery Studio’s collections. Since establishing the business, she’s won numerous awards and even had her Jewellery featured on a Bermuda postage stamp. But she’s not one to hog the spotlight and has consistently celebrated the work of others. There’s ‘something for everyone’ in her showroom, where you’ll find not only her designs on display, but also designs made by fellow artist-friends and most importantly her apprentice, Jocelyn Powell. “Jocelyn has been with me for over 12 years. She is so talented and makes a lot of the pieces here,” Jacquie says. Jocelyn crafts many lovely designs out of Bermuda elements such as pink sand, cedar, and the store’s extensive collection of gemstones and pearls. She also collaborates with Jacquie to design one of the studio’s most popular creations ‘The Bermuda Medallion’. The silver-sculpted pendants are truly unique pieces fit for any aspiring mermaid. They contain rare pieces of our coloured sea-glass, pink sand, replicas of tiny sea-shells cast in silver, and resemble the little tide-pools left on the rocks by the waves. “I think they really capture the essence of Bermuda” says Jocelyn. The medallions are wonderful keepsakes that let you cherish the Island forever.

the keep Fort, Park, and Home of the National Museum BY JANE DOWNING

The Keep from the air, with its 7 bastions jutting into the sea

At the tip of Bermuda’s fish-hook of islands stands the Keep, the largest fort ever built on the Island. It was the final citadel of a ring of fortifications stretching from one end of the Island to the other, guarding the Royal Naval Dockyard at Bermuda against attack by land and sea, and earning the Island the nickname of ‘the Gibraltar of the West’. The fort was constructed over a period of twenty years with a work force of British convicts blasting and shaping the hard limestone blocks into the massive ramparts and jutting bastions under the direction of the Royal Engineers. The design made maximum use of the existing landscape: the ramparts took advantage of the headland’s natural escarpments, and the moats were sited in existing caves. Entry into the Keep from the sea was made via a tunnel in the ramparts into a basin formed by a huge collapsed cave.

A large collection of artillery and armament in the Keep in the 1860s, including RMLs, carronades, gun powder kegs and shells.

On completion, the ramparts and casemates were armed with over 60 pieces of artillery, ranging from carronades to 8” shell guns. Inside the sunken lower grounds of the Keep, huge ordnance buildings designed to be bomb- and spark-proof stored 6,540 barrels of gunpowder. Other buildings were used for storing small arms and munitions from ships undergoing repair, and artillery was stockpiled in the adjacent yard. Today the ten-acre property houses the National Museum of Bermuda, and the massive ramparts are armed with examples of artillery from every period of armament, from the 32-pounders of the Napoleonic era to the 18-ton rifled muzzle loaders of the 1870s and the 6-inch steel breech loaders which provided coastal defence into the 1950s.

About Cyril Chesterfield Eston and the World War I deployment of the Bermuda Militia Artillery? BY HORST AUGUSTINOVIC

When the United Kingdom declared war with Germany on August 4th 1914, the Bermuda Militia Artillery was already in camp for their annual 41 days of training in St. George’s. There were 189 militia and 3 regular ranks, as well as 5 militia and 2 regular officers. By August 6th the B.M.A. moved to various designated stations and began digging positions. From January 1915 Captain T.M. Dill took command Cap Badge of the Militia Artillery. of the B.M.A. In November 1915 news reached Bermuda that British military authorities would accept a Contingent from the Bermuda Militia Artillery and Captain Dill, together with Lieutenants S. Hamilton and H.C. Smith, as well over 100 men volunteered for overseas service. After intensive training the Contingent was attested in the Royal Garrison Artillery and ready for embarkation in late April 1916. Known as the Bermuda Battery R.G.A., the Contingent left Bermuda on May 28th, 1916, and on arrival in Devonport, was immediately deployed to France where they arrived on June 24th. Consisting of 4 Officers and 206 other ranks, the unit was split into 4 detachments and deployed as follows: Major Dill at Bouzincourt; Lt. Hamilton at Raincheval; Lt. Smith at Soult Dump near Albert and 2nd Lt. Gosling at Corby sur Somme. They all took part in the attack on the Somme on July 1st, 1916. Having fought on the Somme throughout the summer and fall of 1916, the Bermuda Contingent was moved to Abancourt to recuperate and later to Marseilles were it handled stevedoring and harbour work. In April 1917 the unit moved to Bruay and Villiers au Bois where it took part in the attack on Vimy Ridge on April 9th. The next move was to the 52nd Heavy Artillery Brigade at Le Don Camp near Ploegsteert on May 23rd where several men were wounded and gassed during the attack on MessinesWytschaete Ridge on June 7th.

Bermuda . November 2017

do you know about cyril chesterfield eston... From mid-June to late-October the Bermuda Contingent was located between Brandhoek and Vlammertainghe, handling ammunition at the advanced dumps which were subject to shelling during the day and bombing at night, causing several casualties. Having been reinforced by 40 men, the unit was next moved to St. Jean near Ypres, working on ammunition supply in preparation for the attack on Passchaendaele. By mid-January 1918 the unit was moved to the rest station at Barentin near Rouen and in early July was again moved to the Front, at first to Aire and later to Belgium where it remained until the Armistice. Field Marshall Sir Douglas Haig’s Report on the Bermuda Contingent of the Royal Garrison Artillery included the following: “They were employed on Heavy Ammunition Dumps and great satisfaction was expressed with their work. Though called upon to perform labour of the most arduous and exacting nature at all times of the day and night, they were not only willing and efficient but conspicuous for their cheeriness under all conditions.” Cyril Chesterfield Eston was 17 years old when he joined the Bermuda Militia Artillery in 1914. This photograph, taken in France during the war, shows him with the single stripe of a Lance Bombardier to which he has added cross hatching, which was very fashionable at the time! He is wearing the 1907 Pattern Service Dress featuring box pleats on the breast pockets and reinforced ‘rifle’ patches on the chest, between the pockets and the epaulets. His bandolier is the 5 pouch version of the 1903 Pattern Leather Equipment. This was obsolete in the infantry by 1914 but was still issued to cavalry, artillery and engineers.  Unusually he is wearing the securing strap for a second belt, which was worn around the waist with a ‘full set’ but which in practice had by this period been discontinued.  With thanks to Martin Buckley for this detailed information!
