editor As per usual, much of the August issue of DV8 was put together under the dark, depressing cloud that continues to produce so much rain in what we now affectionately call British Summer. We distributed the July magazines in the rain, went to the Sand Polo in the rain, watched Wimbledon in the rain, and got wet more often than not on our early morning stroll to get a coffee from yes you’ve guessed it the bloody rain. As a result this issue has taken on a bit of a water theme. Firstly we caught up with local Kite Surfer Craig Sparks who alongside Sir Richard Branson successfully navigated the English Channel by Kite and nearly got arrested in the process upon arrival in France. We chatted to local kite surfing outfits about learning the sport. We got on the water with a local boat charter business and took a spin around the bay. We talked boardshorts and bikinis with iboardsport, and met up with local entrepreneur Nicki Grainger from ‘What Alice Found’ on the beach to talk shop. Always the eternal optimist, and in the vain hope that Summer is infact around the corner, we have dedicated much of our beauty and fashion section to beach attire and looking good on the beach. Enjoy. We have also introduced a business section which we aim to expand upon in future issues. We caught up with PR Guru Jane Jones to talk well PR and Party in The Park Episode 12 which takes place on the 2nd September. We hope to see you there. Here at DV8 we hope we provide a service that’s beneficial to you, the reader. We’re not printing a listings magazine that emulates ‘Time Out’. We want to provide good quality editorial and interesting interviews so please if you are interested in writing get involved. Oh and thanks to all our competitors that continue to make our magazine look good. Until next time. Enjoy. Digest.

ON MISSING BOURNEMOUTH..... When I’m away I really miss my family and relaxing at the beach. I am also a "coffee culture" fan, so I love having a peaceful snack in one of Bournemouth's fantastic coffee shops somewhere close to the sea. LUXURY LIFE..... I think it has to be the fact that my everyday consists of being with people who make "magic" happen on the cinema screens. I get to see the finished films way before they premiere in the theatres, attend cast and crew screenings, and take part in creative aspects of production. London is extremely creative, and gives you the opportunity to experience theatres, cinemas, clubs, gigs, and events, any time of the day. CAREER HIGHLIGHTS A very recent achievement I am immensely proud of is winning a BAFTA - ‘best visual effects’ – for the last Harry Potter movie. It is a thrilling experience to hold the award and share the feeling with my co-workers. We also, as a company, received an Oscar and BAFTA for ‘outstanding visual effects’ for the movie Inception.

RNLI LOCAL FACTS Lifeguards in Bournemouth and Poole responded to 1,533 incidents in 2011, down from 2,661 in 2010 (a quiet season due to the poor weather) Five lives were saved by lifeguards on Bournemouth beaches in 2011 - lives that otherwise would have been lost if the lifeguards had not intervened. August was the busiest month for the Bournemouth and Poole lifeguards. Lifeguards responded to 20 incidents involving inflatables, compared with 8 body boarding incidents

e are all incredibly lucky to live in such a beautiful area, and I’m sure we all enjoy spending time at the beach, or out on the water, but how much attention do we pay when we’re there? Poole is home to the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution), and their lifeboats and lifeguards are on call 24 hours a day to help keep us safe.

TOT

beau escap some mem killin to tru

Since it was founded in 1824, the RNLI has saved more than 139,000 lives from 235 stations nationwide, that’s an average of 22 people a day, and their vision is to completely put a stop to preventable loss of life at sea. Such vision however, comes with a hefty price tag; the RNLI costs £385,000 to run per day, which includes all equipment, training, and maintaining the fleet, but considering how many lives are saved by the teams, it is a small price to pay. The organization is completely funded by charitable donations; they receive no help from central government, and the service is almost exclusively provided by volunteers, which I’m sure you’ll agree is an astonishing, and highly admirable statement to be able to make. There are several different ways for you to show your support, whether it be by volunteering, fundraising, or a one-off donation, everything is greatly appreciated.

incorporating several safety boats on the water, as well as staff on either shore. There were 15 surfers taking part altogether, including Branson and his son, an Apple project manager, instructors from Necker Island, and 5 sponsored kite surfers including Craig. The crossing took around 3 hours and 45 minutes, a lot of patience, and stamina. Although they had originally planned to make the crossing on the Saturday, and made it nearly half way across, a shift in the wind meant that they then didn’t have best equipment out on the water to make the most of the conditions, and had to abandon attempts. Finally, the weather on the Sunday was perfect, and they were able to complete the challenge 2 years after its inception.

Unsurprisingly however, it was not without its complications, this time not from weather conditions, but from French immigration, who were less than pleased about the events, sending out marine helicopters and officers to apprehend them. At this point, as Craig says, the team adopted an ‘everyman for himself’ attitude, and the boats turned back to the UK. Luckily however, the surfers had their passports, and as it was around 6:30pm on a Sunday, after a few tense moments, the authorities let it slide. It is certainly a fantastic achievement for all involved, and a testament to the fact that anyone, any age, can kite surf. DV8 send a huge congratulations to all those who took part.

or one of the richest men in the country, Richard Branson is about as normal a bloke as you could ever wish to meet. The chairman of the Virgin Group may have built up a personal fortune of $1.4billion over four decades - in doing so making him one of the most recognisable figures in the UK. But speaking to the 62year-old is not how you would imagine conversing with one of the world’s most famous businessmen.

“I believe in living life to the full, making the most of every single day,” Branson says in his unfailingly positive tone. “I just live for the moment, which is a cliché but it is true. I have a great life. I would be a bit sad if I didn’t make the most of it, wouldn’t I?”

Branson is not wrong when he says he has a great life - you just have to look at his 74acre Necker Island home that he shares with wife Joan to recognise that this is a man who goes by the maxim ‘work hard/play hard’. “It is my favourite place in the entire world. It was love at first sight as soon as I saw it all those years ago. It’s like being on holiday when I’m there because it is such a wonderful setting and there are always

parties going on. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.” Branson left school at 15 with no qualifications – he has built up a worldwide conglomerate that now has over 400 companies and happily for budding entrepreneurs, he has revealed his secrets in a new book Like a Virgin: Secrets They Won’t Teach you at Business School.

But it isn’t just his inspirational ideas that have marked Branson out as a visionary, it is the quality of service too, and his message is simple – go the extra mile. “You will only be a success if you are offering your customer the best they can find,” he says with certainty. “It is absolutely vital. If it’s an airline, it has to be the best. If it’s a trainline, it has to be the best. If it’s the internet, it has to be the best. And if you’re offering the best, you will earn people’s trust.”

“I get sent so many questions from people – via text, via email, via tweet – that it is impossible for me to get back to everyone, so I thought I would answer everybody’s questions in one go by writing the book. And I’ve enjoyed it.” So what are Branson’s key pieces of advice?“I always think that for something to be successful, it has to be an obvious labour of love for those involved. I am passionate about all my projects because if I’m not passionate about something, why should anyone else be?

Branson says that business school and qualifications are not the be all and end all for aspiring businessmen. “I learned to survive by doing it, making mistakes as I went along, and that can happen today. Anybody can make themselves a success – you just need the idea. And perseverance. I have had my share of failures but I’ve never let any of them put me off trying something else. You can succeed even if you’ve failed.”

But the idea must be a great one. If you have a great idea that will improve people’s lives, then you can’t go wrong. You have to have products that people can see will make their lives better.”

So what of the future? “I want to carry on, definitely,” he says merrily. “I feel fit and healthy and there is no reason for me to stop. There is still so much to achieve. Who knows what tomorrow might bring?”

HERE ARE FIVE OF THE BEST FAKE TAN LOTIONS So are spray tans worth the risk? Until recently, spray tans have been seen as the safer alternative to natural tanning or sun beds. However, new information released by the FDA (the United States Food and Drug Administration) suggests that this may not be the case. The sprays used by salons contain a chemical called dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which has been shown in lab tests to cause genetic mutations. So, if you don’t fancy taking the risk, take a look at our pick of the best fake tan lotions below.

One Night Tan

The latest addition to the Fake Bake range, 60 Minutes Self Tan is an express fake tan liquid that develops into a natural looking tan in just 60 minutes, what’s more, the lightweight formula won’t clog your pores. (£24.95)

You can now get TOWIE star, Lauren Goodger’s bronzed summer glow at home with the Lauren’s Way range of fake tans. The Bronzing Mousse provides an instant glow, but it is also a lasting formula that develops for that deep Marbs style tone. (£17.95)

Always a favourite among tan-fans. Their new Firming Gradual Tan is an enriched easily absorbed lotion that’s your onestop product for tanning, toning, firming and moisturizing. The innovative melanin technology works with your skin to achieve a bespoke, natural glow, whilst also improving tone in problem areas. (£20.00)

ASK THE HAIR EXPERT // LYNDSEY FROM LEVEL Festival season is well and truly upon us, so that means we need fuss-free styles, I recommend side fishtail plaits and messy buns for an easy but glam way of getting hair off your face and ready to party. Fearne Cotton uses hair extensions to wear her fishtail plaits, but if your hair is long enought, create the look by splitting hair into two sections, then begin plaiting one section at a time starting loosely at the top and working your way tighter towards the ends. Whitney Port and Michelle Keegan on the other hand, show off their high wearing buns with the more texture to the hair the better! Tip your head upside down and tie with elastic on the crown of your head to secure, then bending and wrapping hair over, pin into place - this works even better on dirty hair, L'Oreal Super Dust is great way of getting more texture and body into your hair for that ‘just off the beach’ look at any time..

Adult evening classes are priced on average £55pp.

his summer’s weather has played havoc with outdoor gigs and the Sand Polo was no exception. The organisers coped well with the torrential downpour and although it did affect those wanting to view the polo it didn’t dampen spirits for the evening parties. Amika, London presented ‘Beach Party the Polo’ bringing a touch of their West End magic to Sandbanks. The live music line up was very good and they did a good job warming everybody up.

ASK THE EXPERTS // BODY SUPPLEMENTS Pre-workouts have become increasingly popular over the last year, with the majority of those available containing caffeine, creatine, select amino acids and occasionally carbohydrates. Pre-workouts increase blood flow and nutrient delivery, improve mental focus, enhance muscle pumps, increase energy and delay fatigue, increase strength and muscle mass, and promote fat loss. Yes, pre-workout products will not hinder fat loss in any way. In fact, many of the ingredients will help speed up the metabolic rate and enhance fat utilization. Also, often while dieting to lose fat energy levels can run low. This makes a pre-workout product an excellent choice to keep intensity levels high while in the gym. Pre-workouts are designed to be taken 20-30 minutes before you workout and most pre-workout supplements

PERSONAL TRAINER?

should be taken on an empty stomach. If your product contains caffeine and you happen to be sensitive to caffeine, its effects can be minimized by consuming it with a small snack. Pre-workout supplements can help you in a wide range of sports such as bodybuilding, power lifting, football, rugby running and many more. Our top 3 pre-workouts we would recommend are Surge Workout fuel, Sci-mx Xplode and Dymatize Xpand. (Pictured above) All the above products are available from Body Supplements 232 Holdenhurst Road Bournemouth 01202 552 598 at the very lowest prices.

If you want to lose weight, get healthy and/or build muscle, hiring a personal trainer can be a step in the right direction. A good trainer can help you set up a program that meets your goals and teach you the best way to exercise. Finding and choosing a trainer can be a little confusing and, for some, intimidating. It's not easy asking for help, but going in with more knowledge about how personal training works can make it a little easier. A personal trainer should be certified through a reputable personal training organization, have an updated certification in CPR and/or first aid, and have experience, especially in relation to your goals. For example, if you're a bodybuilder, you want someone knowledgeable in that area. If you have a specific medical problem, injury or condition (such as being pregnant, difficulty getting pregnant, heart problems, diabetes, etc.) make sure your trainer has education in these areas and will work with your doctor. Evolution personal training are offering free consultations in August so now is the time to take the first step. tel: 07989 387157

PARTING SHOT

MOST FASHIONABLE Natalie Pope, 32 Tell us about your outfit tonight? My outfit tonight was chosen for comfort. I'm a firm believer if you’re comfortable in your clothing you’re more relaxed - there's nothing worse than fiddling with you clothes all night, I love the black leather trousers they are a wardrobe staple! The t- shirt was something I bought without trying on first, I just liked it. How would you describe ‘Bournemouth style’? Bournemouth style tends to be very dressy, guys are looking very groomed and preppy but especially with the ladies, I think it can go too far with the layers of lashes, big big hair, tiny dresses, dark fake tan - I think we give Essex a run for its money, I'd like to see a little bit more natural . What is your favourite item in your wardrobe something you’ll never part with? My favourite item of clothing is a Criminal soft black leather jacket - its so feminine but importantly it's timeless too. What is your greatest indulgence in your fashion life? My greatest fashion indulgence is without doubt shoes. I stay in shape by? I stay in shape by running and going to the gym, I still eat whatever I want as I feel I have a good balance. Favourite feature? My favourite feature is my eyes, the eyes are the window to the soul as they say. Go-to beauty brand? My go to beauty brand is Skinceuticals for skin care products, and I'm a fan of the high street for make up, brands like Benefit, Bourjouis, and good old Rimmel. Beauty secret? My best beauty secret is a decent nights sleep and plenty of water above any product! Best beauty advice ever given to me? The best advice I was given was to let your personality shine through, don't overdo yourself in make up, it ends up being the only thing you can see. Oh and my mum always taught me to take care of my skin by moisturising daily.

incorporating several safety boats on the water, as well as staff on either shore. There were 15 surfers taking part altogether, including Branson and his son, an Apple project manager, instructors from Necker Island, and 5 sponsored kite surfers including Craig. The crossing took around 3 hours and 45 minutes, a lot of patience, and stamina. Although they had originally planned to make the crossing on the Saturday, and made it nearly half way across, a shift in the wind meant that they then didn’t have best equipment out on the water to make the most of the conditions, and had to abandon attempts. Finally, the weather on the Sunday was perfect, and they were able to complete the challenge 2 years after its inception. Unsurprisingly however, it was not without its complications, this time not from weather conditions, but from French immigration, who were less than pleased about the events, sending out marine helicopters and officers to apprehend them. At this point, as Craig says, the team adopted an ‘everyman for himself’ attitude, and the boats turned back to the UK. Luckily however, the surfers had their passports, and as it was around 6:30pm on a Sunday, after a few tense moments, the authorities let it slide. It is certainly a fantastic achievement for all involved, and a testament to the fact that anyone, any age, can kite surf. DV8 send a huge congratulations to all those who took part. If this story has inspired you to get involved yourself, check out our pick of the best schools on the next page.

siness... u b s t a h c d r a Rich

F

or one of the richest men in the country, Richard Branson is about as normal a bloke as you could ever wish to meet. The chairman of the Virgin Group may have built up a personal fortune of $1.4billion over four decades - in doing so making him one of the most recognisable figures in the UK. But speaking to the 62year-old is not how you would imagine conversing with one of the world’s most famous businessmen.

“I believe in living life to the full, making the most of every single day,” Branson says in his unfailingly positive tone. “I just live for the moment, which is a cliché but it is true. I have a great life. I would be a bit sad if I didn’t make the most of it, wouldn’t I?” Branson is not wrong when he says he has a great life - you just have to look at his 74acre Necker Island home that he shares with wife Joan to recognise that this is a man who goes by the maxim ‘work hard/play hard’. “It is my favourite place in the entire world. It was love at first sight as soon as I saw it all those years ago. It’s like being on holiday when I’m there because it is such a wonderful setting and there are always

parties going on. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.” Branson left school at 15 with no qualifications – he has built up a worldwide conglomerate that now has over 400 companies and happily for budding entrepreneurs, he has revealed his secrets in a new book Like a Virgin: Secrets They Won’t Teach you at Business School.

But it isn’t just his inspirational ideas that have marked Branson out as a visionary, it is the quality of service too, and his message is simple – go the extra mile. “You will only be a success if you are offering your customer the best they can find,” he says with certainty. “It is absolutely vital. If it’s an airline, it has to be the best. If it’s a trainline, it has to be the best. If it’s the internet, it has to be the best. And if you’re offering the best, you will earn people’s trust.”

“I get sent so many questions from people – via text, via email, via tweet – that it is impossible for me to get back to everyone, so I thought I would answer everybody’s questions in one go by writing the book. And I’ve enjoyed it.” So what are Branson’s key pieces of advice?“I always think that for something to be successful, it has to be an obvious labour of love for those involved. I am passionate about all my projects because if I’m not passionate about something, why should anyone else be?

Branson says that business school and qualifications are not the be all and end all for aspiring businessmen. “I learned to survive by doing it, making mistakes as I went along, and that can happen today. Anybody can make themselves a success – you just need the idea. And perseverance. I have had my share of failures but I’ve never let any of them put me off trying something else. You can succeed even if you’ve failed.”

But the idea must be a great one. If you have a great idea that will improve people’s lives, then you can’t go wrong. You have to have products that people can see will make their lives better.”

So what of the future? “I want to carry on, definitely,” he says merrily. “I feel fit and healthy and there is no reason for me to stop. There is still so much to achieve. Who knows what tomorrow might bring?”

his summer’s weather has played havoc with outdoor gigs, and the Sand Polo was no exception. The organisers coped well with the torrential downpour, and although it did affect those wanting to view the polo, it didn’t dampen spirits for the evening parties. Amika, London presented ‘Beach Party the Polo’, bringing a touch of their West End magic to Sandbanks, whilst the live music line up was great and did a good job warming everybody up. The Polo does it’s bit for charity ‘Help for Heroes’ and this year attendees raised £2500. Well done we say. For info on next years event: www.sandpolo.com

FASHION AND BEAUTY

For nine long dreary months your feet were held hostage in closed shoes or boots in order to survive the cold, wet weather. Now summer is finally here (allegedly), so break out the sandals or flip-flops and let your toes enjoy the freedom they’ve been waiting for. We recommend the following....

ASK THE FEET EXPERTS // SILKI SOLES One minute we’re slipping our soles into UGG boats built for wind, rain, and storm. The next, we’re paddling bare foot along the sandy shores of Sandbanks beach. With the constant change in the weather, brings a constant change of footwear. Carole McGuinness, Chiropodist and Podiatrist at Silk Nails, Beauty & Health in Poole explains why it is so important to care for your feet… Carole advises that people look after their feet by keeping them clean, washing them daily, drying them thoroughly, ensuring toenails are kept at a reasonable length, and filing away any hard skin. Using a daily moisturiser such as E45 can also be beneficial, especially on dry feet to keep the skin around the heels moisturised, preventing them from cracking which can be extremely painful. During the summer months there are a few things that need to be remembered while stepping into sandals and flip-flops. Make sure the straps do not irritate any lumps and bumps on the toes, and consider adding an arch or metatarsal support to sandals that you wear often; this will assist in reducing abnormal foot pronation, along with preventing slipping, arch cramping, foot pain and bunions. Silk Nails, Beauty & Health has recently opened their beautiful plush new salon, which boasts expert knowledge and a calming atmosphere. An appointment with Carole is priced at just £27, where she will give you a general consultation and treat your feet accordingly. Silk Nails, Beauty & Health is open late nights and 7 days a week.

HAIR AND BEAUTY

HERE ARE FIVE OF THE BEST FAKE TAN LOTIONS So are spray tans worth the risk? Until recently, spray tans have been seen as the safer alternative to natural tanning or sun beds. However, new information released by the FDA (the United States Food and Drug Administration) suggests that this may not be the case. The sprays used by salons contain a chemical called dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which has been shown in lab tests to cause genetic mutations. So, if you don’t fancy taking the risk, take a look at our pick of the best fake tan lotions below.

Fake Bake

Laurens Way

St Tropex

Transform Luxe

One Night Tan

The latest addition to the Fake Bake range, 60 Minutes Self Tan is an express fake tan liquid that develops into a natural looking tan in just 60 minutes, what’s more, the lightweight formula won’t clog your pores. (£24.95)

You can now get TOWIE star, Lauren Goodger’s bronzed summer glow at home with the Lauren’s Way range of fake tans. The Bronzing Mousse provides an instant glow, but it is also a lasting formula that develops for that deep Marbs style tone. (£17.95)

Always a favourite among tan-fans. Their new Firming Gradual Tan is an enriched easily absorbed lotion that’s your onestop product for tanning, toning, firming and moisturizing. The innovative melanin technology works with your skin to achieve a bespoke, natural glow, whilst also improving tone in problem areas. (£20.00)

Transform Luxe From Xen Tan is a must-buy. Containing more active tanning ingredient than other gradual tanners, as well as vitamin E and shea butter, it lets you achieve a darker colour after just one application. (£24.99)

One Night Tan is the ultimate tan for one night only. Lightweight, velvety, and nontransferring, it allows you to build a natural-looking, rich tan in seconds that washes off when you say so. (£24.00)

All of these products are available from Debenhams, both online and in store.

ASK THE HAIR EXPERT // LYNDSEY FROM LEVEL Festival season is well and truly upon us, so that means we need fuss-free styles, I recommend side fishtail plaits and messy buns for an easy but glam way of getting hair off your face and ready to party. Fearne Cotton uses hair extensions to wear her fishtail plaits, but if your hair is long enought, create the look by splitting hair into two sections, then begin plaiting one section at a time starting loosely at the top and working your way tighter towards the ends. Whitney Port and Michelle Keegan on the other hand, show off their high wearing buns with the more texture to the hair the better! Tip your head upside down and tie with elastic on the crown of your head to secure, then bending and wrapping hair over, pin into place - this works even better on dirty hair, L'Oreal Super Dust is great way of getting more texture and body into your hair for that ‘just off the beach’ look at any time..

FITNESS

ASK THE EXPERTS // BODY SUPPLEMENTS Pre-workouts have become increasingly popular over the last year, with the majority of those available containing caffeine, creatine, select amino acids and occasionally carbohydrates. Pre-workouts increase blood flow and nutrient delivery, improve mental focus, enhance muscle pumps, increase energy and delay fatigue, increase strength and muscle mass, and promote fat loss. Yes, pre-workout products will not hinder fat loss in any way. In fact, many of the ingredients will help speed up the metabolic rate and enhance fat utilization. Also, often while dieting to lose fat energy levels can run low. This makes a pre-workout product an excellent choice to keep intensity levels high while in the gym. Pre-workouts are designed to be taken 20-30 minutes before you workout and most pre-workout supplements

should be taken on an empty stomach. If your product contains caffeine and you happen to be sensitive to caffeine, its effects can be minimized by consuming it with a small snack. Pre-workout supplements can help you in a wide range of sports such as bodybuilding, power lifting, football, rugby running and many more. Our top 3 pre-workouts we would recommend are Surge Workout fuel, Sci-mx Xplode and Dymatize Xpand. (Pictured above) All the above products are available from Body Supplements 232 Holdenhurst Road Bournemouth 01202 552 598 at the very lowest prices.

PRIMITIVE GYM OPENS.... Primitive Gym is a privately owned friendly gym specialising in bodybuilding and heavyweight training. Providing strongman equipment, personal training, massage therapy, and diet and nutrition advice. Primitive is based in Parkstone and offers Membership from £25-£30 per month. What makes Primitive Gym unique from many others, is that owner Ryan Petford does not enforce any contracts or joining fees and includes the induction free. You can find Primitive above CO-OP on Ashley Road, or contact Ryan for more details. ryanpetford@yahoo.co.uk / 07892 709921

PERSONAL TRAINER? If you want to lose weight, get healthy and/or build muscle, hiring a personal trainer can be a step in the right direction. A good trainer can help you set up a program that meets your goals and teach you the best way to exercise. Finding and choosing a trainer can be a little confusing and, for some, intimidating. It's not easy asking for help, but going in with more knowledge about how personal training works can make it a little easier. A personal trainer should be certified through a reputable personal training organization, have an updated certification in CPR and/or first aid, and have experience, especially in relation to your goals. For example, if you're a bodybuilder, you want someone knowledgeable in that area. If you have a specific medical problem, injury or condition (such as being pregnant, difficulty getting pregnant, heart problems, diabetes, etc.) make sure your trainer has education in these areas and will work with your doctor. Evolution personal training are offering free consultations in August so now is the time to take the first step. tel: 07989 387157

BUSINESS MATTERS

SELFISH GREED_

words: mps

I

t has to be said that I am sick to the back teeth of selfish people; we human beings are consistently our own worst enemy. In one sense the worldwide downturn has done some good in that it has exposed many vile human practices to which a lot of people turned a blind eye when the going was good, but 'when the tide goes out you find out who's been swimming naked' as Warren Buffet once said and so things are just going to have to get even worse before they get any better. We are going to have to be forced to take a good hard look at ourselves and our greed (read: selfishness). Stupid bankers bringing an important industry into disrepute, for which there should be criminal proceedings instantly, and with potential collusion (and without doubt, bad regulation) via politicians, the law, Bank of England and general Establishment nearly everyone in power is in some way on the hook here. As more of the same comes to light again and again we are all, surely, fed up with venal and selfish, greedy, self-interested people whether it's journalists, doctors, MP's, Union Leaders, tax evaders, thugs or hooligans the list does not stop. And that is just in the UK. Europe is on the brink of a man-made economic catastrophe, albeit not through greed but by way of a politically noble and initially well-intentioned cause. Yet, unless Germany agrees to greater integration on the way to a "United States of Europe" the project is finished and our economy is screwed even further for even longer. Across the pond the USA is still struggling. In Asia, Japan continues to stagnate whilst China's banking system and property market is not as healthy as official statistics say it is- whole ghost towns have been built to keep the economy humming yet lots of these bad loans will have to go pop at some point. Politically, as the recent Arab Spring has shown, people in North Africa and the Middle East have had enough of living under autocracy, and rightly so. What do all of these problems have in common? Yes, human beings. We really do appear to be at a tipping point in terms of consciousness. What is the solution to all this self induced madness, apart from forcing all people to meditate on their thoughts and actions? I'm not sure, but full transparency and accountability in every walk of life would be a good start. It is no coincidence that most Swedish people and businesses pay their taxes when everyone's tax return is open and available for anyone else to see. And so we must throw the light on many other areas too. Secrecy always breeds corruption. If you can't rely on human beings to do the right thing without encouragement, proving the adage that you reveal the true character of a man by what he is prepared to do when he knows no-one is watching, then you must use peer group pressure or even shame to force people to behave. Trust underpins all human relationships and since the worldwide economic

downturn that trust has been found to be wanting by the truckload. We must utilise the deep rooted fear of 'not being enough', the fear of not living up to others' expectations to coax people into doing the right thing if they are not prepared or able to do it on their own. People are going to have to keep being reminded of their morality and their moral duty to one another; we really need to increase our empathy and reduce selfishness. And before the rest of us start indulging in Schadenfreude we all need to be reminded to have some moral humility and to take a good thorough look in the mirror and then see if our “feral” elite and their greedy, selfish ways are still not some reflection of ourselves. How many of us if in the same position would be tempted to do the same; fail with the same foibles? I think I would struggle not to. I used to think it a cliché, but feel more and more it a fundamental truth that we get the political leaders that we deserve. As oftentimes it seems that many adults behave no better than spiteful children in the playground, their stunted egos fighting for supremacy, demonising the “other” or gloating over relatively minor successes. This is pride and prejudice at its worst (fear at its best) and it is shameful on all of us. We do live at an amazing time in many ways. Current technology and scientific discoveries, to take just two examples, show that human ingenuity knows no bounds. But Homo Sapiens need to grow up. We need to raise our consciousness, develop our benevolence and increase our empathy as we stand at a huge crossroads historically speaking and I think it is going to go one of two ways in how we all now live in this technologically-connected, global village - although I am still optimistic about the future. But ultimately it comes down to us: me and you. No-one else; no-one else is to blame. We need to sort ourselves out first and take personal responsibility. We need to be brave, stare down our fear, learn to forgive, build trust again and be the change that we want to see. Only then can we can start to create a brighter, more selfless and less selfish future for our children.

BUSINESS ENTREPRENEUR

Nicki Grainger OWNER OF VINTAGE STORE ‘WHAT ALICE FOUND’ 805 Christchurch Road, Boscombe. Tuesday- Saturday (11am-6pm) 01202 929 531 www.whatalicefound.co.uk www.facebook.com/whatalicefound

Nicki Granger is a fashion journalism graduate, vintage enthusiast, and for the last fifteen months the owner of What Alice Found, a vintage clothing boutique on Bournemouth’s antique ‘Golden Mile’. We popped in to get the low-down on all things Alice. Originally from Buckinghamshire, Nicki studied Fashion Journalism at Solent University before starting as an intern at ELLE. The fashon world however, was very 'The Devil Wears Prada’, and so she decided instead to go into content writing and digital marketing, before working for local government. As you can imagine, this was hardly the ideal job for such a creative mind, and so in 2009, Nicki started The Cherry Closet, an online vintage boutique which became hugely successful, being featured in such publications asGlamour Magazine. Encouraged by her success, Nicki decided to open her own shop, and having considered London and Brighton, settled on Boscombe’s

antique mile: ‘I wanted to be there at the start of the area’s growth, before vintage went pop. Since I’ve been here, six or seven other shops have opened’. Having worked on the London fashion scene, Nicki wanted people to have ‘more fun with fashion, vintage especially is so expressive’, and this is certainly something that she has achieved. The vintage look has become increasingly popular over the last few years, with many highstreet shops offering mock-vintage styles. Part of the ethos behind What Alice Found however, is about supporting the independent stores, about ethical buying (all the furniture in the store was sorced from neighbouring shops), and offering people the original version of the highstreet. Nicki sources some of her stock in Hollywood, from stores in the eccentric back streets, so you’re guaranteed to find stunning one-off pieces. What Alice Found is more than a boutique though, Nicki also works as a freelance

vintage stylist, working with theatre companies as well as private clients. You’ll also find them at vintage fairs and even music festivals. As if this wasn’t enough, they actively support local graduate artists and illustrators who have a vintage, Alice in Wonderland vibe, and examples of their work can be seen in store. At still only 27, Nicki has been hugely successful in persuing her passion in life, so what words of wisdom has she got to pass on to budding vintage entrepreneurs? ‘You have to make yourself stand out, it’s difficult to be competitive, as such, in vintage as everything item is different, but it’s all about finding your niche, styling well , and being helpful to customers - a lot of people are weary to try vintage, you have to make them feel comfortable...when I first opened the shop it was a difficult transition but I stuck at it and it has all been worth it, and now have two interns and a PA to help me!’ What Alice Found is a great Bournemouth success story, so pop down and snap up some fabulous vintage.

BUSINESS PR Jane has lived in the Dorset area her entire life and has enjoyed a varied career. She first became involved in Hospitality and PR in the 1980’s working as Weddings and Conference Organiser at highly respected local hotels, and it was within these roles that Jane began developing the idea of running her own PR and Events Company. Jane Jones PR & Events was founded in 1999 and since then, the team have built an enviable client base and reputation within their field. On the reason for putting on Party in the Park It all started 12 years ago when it was originally called Brunch in the Park, and was part of Taste 200 - Poole’s first food festival. The event just grew and grew, and after around 4 years the name got changed. The event is all about bringing the community together, and over the 12 years it has been going it has achieved this, as people from every age group can congregate on this small park in the knowledge that they will meet up with people that they haven’t seen for a while. The whole atmosphere is just so fabulous, and it is all encompassing, combining the music with food, kid’s entertainment, local arts stalls, and above all, the fact that people are able to have fun. On why there is a ticket price this year This year we are charging £3.00 per person with under 12’s going free. The price is kept to the lowest possible, but helps towards all the extra infrastructure we have to incur; the fencing, portaloos, bins, security, stage and sounds etc. We hope the local people of Poole will appreciate that in order to put an event on of this magnitude, it takes time and a lot of hidden extras that they probably are not aware of. Without the support of our sponsors, and indeed this small charge to attend the event, it would not be possible to go ahead, so in turn we hope that people will understand this and come to PITP like they have always done. On what people can expect from this year’s event An eclectic mix covering everything from Tarot Card Readings, through to Penalty Shoot Outs for the children. There will be clothes to buy, jewellery to discover, and much more, there really is something for everyone but with a Dorset, local artisan twist. Everything is in keeping with our lovely county, and any foods on sale will also be part of supporting Dorset. In terms of music, this year we welcome Island Glow, The Amy Mayes Band, The Steve Wilson Band, Empire Affair, Jackson Three, and DJ Martyn the Hat.

On being a good PR At JJPR we take pride in our creativity and dynamism. We offer our clients a bespoke, highly personal service, and do not offer our services to other companies in the same industry once a deal has been sealed. This way we can offer truthful advice, and a package that is no nonsense but is also cutting edge, always thinking outside of the box. Our clients receive advice that is entirely exclusive. On getting into PR With my hospitality background in sales and events, it was just the natural progression. I was always very good at English, and also had a natural ability to make many useful contacts, which have always stood me in good stead over the years. A pretty good memory has also been an asset, as I never forget a face or name and people really appreciate that. On the jobs market in Bournemouth Contrary to all this talk about there not being enough jobs, plenty of our clients are advising us that it is the level of candidates suitable for the jobs that is a worry. On Bournemouth Bournemouth needs to seriously look at its regeneration. There is so much potential, but I don’t believe that it is being fulfilled which is a real shame. On events in general If you are referring to our local area then I feel very strongly about this. I think it is about time we looked at how similar resorts operate with their events they put on throughout the year - even Swanage leaves us standing. Brighton is absolutely buzzing and Weymouth too. I think it is high time that some fresh ideas were injected into the local community, both in Poole and Bournemouth, and if the council needs assistance then we would be happy to help in any way we can. On the economy Well it is really hard for us all. We are all chasing the same jobs; you really have to make yourself stand out from the crowd. On Julia’s House This is the charity that PITP is supporting this year. We chose this charity because every year we support a worthwhile local cause, and this year we decided on Julias’s House. Their dedication to working towards giving children a better life in their time of need due to their illness is something that we all should stop and consider. They are a fabulous team delivering such care and assistance, not just to the poorly child, but also to the family coping with the terminally ill child. It made us realise that if we can give some help with the awareness factor plus a donation, then we’ve served our purpose as a community event.

BUSINESS CV WRITING

Build a winning CV Whether it is the first you’ve ever had to write, or you find yourself back to square one having been made redundant from a previous job, writing a CV can be a daunting prospect, especially in the current job market. To help point you in the right direction, we met up with Frances and Tracey from Jobshop UK, local recruitment specialists, to get the expert view on what makes for a winning CV.

What exactly is a CV? It may seem like an odd question, but first things first. The abbreviation CV stands for ‘Curriculum Vitae’ and means ‘course of life’. It should be a brief but factual account of your working life so that potential employers can gain an insight into who you are. Are looks that important? Presentation is the key, your CV should always be typed, no more than two A4 pages, and printed on high-quality paper. It should include these five key sections: 1. Personal details (name, address, contact information) 2. Personal profile 3. Work history 4. Education and qualifications 5. Any further important personal information. Personal Profile This is the most important section of your CV, but is often also the most difficult to get right. It is your first chance to make an impression, and should be viewed as an opportunity to sell yourself as a candidate. For this reason, you need to make it stand out: try and be creative with your approach, avoiding the usual clichés whilst remaining clear and concise. Try and keep unnecessary personal details such as age, race, or political affiliation out unless specifically asked for. While you are trying to highlight your skills in this section, don’t waffle; one short paragraph should be enough.

is no room for white lies or hyperbole on your CV, as tempting as it may be to elaborate, always try and represent yourself as accurately as possible. Education and Qualifications List all relevant training and qualifications including those gained in previous employment. Courses and grades should be included in reverse chronological order, however, keep in mind how relevant they are to the position you are applying for. It may be better to summaries GCSE’s and highlight further education or relevant training gained from a previous role. Personal Information Any further information you feel may be relevant to the position, for example; whether you hold a driving licence could be useful, being able to do the moonwalk may not. References Two references are usually given. Make sure you have some already lined up, so that you can supply them when requested. N.B. your dog is not an acceptable reference, not matter how well you treat him. Key things to remember: 1. Make sure that you are correctly addressing your CV and that names and titles are spelt correctly. 2. Ensure that there are no spelling or grammar mistakes. Don’t put your future in the hands of spell check, if you’re not confident yourself, get someone to proof-read it. 3. There is a fine line between selling and overselling yourself – don’t get carried away with superlatives 4. Keep it clear, concise and relevant. Don’t just offer a blanket CV, research the company and position you are applying to and tailor your CV accordingly. For more advice contact the Jobshop UK team on 01202 67 44 88 or email them on email@jobshopuk.com

Work History This section should be a list of all current and previous employment working backwards in chronological order. You should clearly show your job title, name of the company, dates of employment, and include a few short sentences to illustrate key responsibilities and skills developed. While gaps in employment may reflect badly, there DV8BOURNEMOUTH.COM | 31

RANCHO GRILL If you have a big appetite or just fancy the challenge of pushing the boundaries of that waist band, then nowhere serves you bigger than Rancho’s – the true taste of South America on our very own Poole Quay. Although Rancho’s does cater for the vegetarian, it is all about the meat at this establishment with fish, pork, ribs, chicken, and the biggest, juiciest steaks you could ever imagine. And if you can’t make up your mind, why not order a combination meal? The Gran Parraillada, for example, the ultimate mixed grill of lamb cutlet, pork chorizo sausage, rump, sirloin, marinated chicken and corn on the cob. If 1Ib of meat is not quite enough, you can request a larger portion. Best of all Rancho are opening in Bournemouth town centre later this year.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

WHEN IN ROME... OK, so the Great British summer may have let us down once again, but salvation is only a short flight away; in a couple of hours you could be soaking up the sun in one of the most impressive cities in the world – Rome. This year marks the two hundredth since England’s celebrated poet Lord Byron published the first two cantos of Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, a jaded journey which led him five years later to Rome, and would incite him to cry “Oh Rome! My country! City of the soul!” It may no longer be caput mundi, but wandering the cobbled streets of the Eternal City, you can immediately feel in it not only the familiar beauty reminiscent of lost European empires, but much of the Byronic Hero himself: moodiness, pride and a sensual affection (in the Italian people as much as the architecture and atmosphere). The city is simultaneously seductive, thrilling, and aweinspiring, the kind of place whose spell you fall under almost instantly. Whichever direction you turn, you will be presented with something spectacular, whether it be the ancient ruins scattered throughout the city, the harmonious coexistence of modernity and history, or even just the vibrancy of the food. It is an unapologetic assault on the senses, and one that is more than welcome. There is an intriguing juxtaposition in Rome between the fast-passed urban city, and the quiet authority of the monuments and buildings that act as Lieux de Memoire constant reminders of times past. While Rome is no doubt a modern European city, the citizens seem to have transcended the stresses that we associate with urban living, preferring to take a more relaxed approach to life in which time poses no threat, a notion which you will find encapsulated in the charm of

Piazza Trisulla, particularly on Fridays, when it becomes populated by young Romans enjoying aperitivo with mischief in their eyes, and nonchalance in their laughs.

I of course make this statement with the exception of the Roman driving style, as the system (if indeed there is one), neither seems to reflect the Italian attitude in other aspects of life, nor follow any rules we may recognise as familiar - be prepared to hold on tight. Driving aside however, it is certain that the pace of life is considerably slower, and is a phenomenon that should be whole-heartedly embraced whilst you are here. Take a stroll through the winding streets or along by the river, enjoy an espresso with a view of the Pantheon, or spend your day people watching at Piazza di Spagna, an unavoidable allure for the traveller in Rome, full in the summer months of a medley of buoyant visitors from all over the world, and tranquil garden to the locals the rest of the year. The Piazza also boasts the Keats-Shelley house, final home of Romantic poet John Keats, containing within it paintings, sculptures, manuscripts, and relics of some of the finest literary names born out of England during the period.

If you have an interest in literature, I’d also recommend going to see The Deposition, a recently rediscovered artistic result of Franco Angeli’s encounter with a drunken Jack Kerouac, hero of the Beat Generation. The

painting, a spiritual adaptation of Italian master-painter Caravaggio’s Deposition, was sold in 1968 (two years after its creation) to the actor Volonte, and subsequently disappeared. Forty-five years after it was painted however, it has been rediscovered, and is being exhibited at Museo dei Fori Imperiali. Kerouac is back in the public eye this year with the imminent release of a film adaptation of On The Road, and so this is the perfect opportunity to take in one of his lesser-known artistic achievements. Whatever you choose to fill your days with, take them slowly, and allow yourself to absorb the culture of Rome. Unfortunately however, this is not a luxury available to everyone. If you are only visiting for a short break, be sure to make the most of it, and (although you will look like a tourist) try and see as many of the landmarks as you can; The Vatican City, The Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, The Colosseum, the list goes on, but they are all equally impressive and culturally significant. A surprising number of sights do not charge an entrance fee, including St. Peter’s Basilica (although the museums and Sistine Chapel do charge), and the Pantheon, so be aware of this as there are many tour guides touting tickets at imposed or inflated prices - the queues are never as long as they claim. A similar word of warning goes for bars and restaurants. Prices will always be high around big landmarks, but the food is just as good, if not better, in eateries hidden away in the quieter streets. Remember that you are on holiday, Italians expect you to take time over your meal – don’t confuse this with bad service. No matter how long you have to spend here, or how far your budget will stretch, this stunning city has something to offer; it is definitely worth a visit even if city breaks aren’t your usual style, personally, I can’t wait to go back.

CARIBBEAN COOKING Flavours School of Cookery

01202 424445 Based on Christchurch Road, Flavours was created by chefs who wanted to share their passion for food with the public in a fun yet relaxed environment. The school offers a range of classes for both adults and children. We went along to ‘Café Jamaica’, an introduction to Caribbean cooking, and would highly recommend it. The class is very relaxed, so you don’t feel out of place for not knowing your scotch bonnets from your bell peppers, and you go away feeling confident that you can bring a taste of Caribbean sunshine into your home. Adult evening classes are priced on average £55pp.

Tasting notes: This twist on the popular classic combines the expected Bacardi Superior white rum, fresh lime, mint, and sugar, but with the addition of dried chilli, and Aruba’s homemade chilli oil.

PARTING SHOT

MOST FASHIONABLE Natalie Pope, 32 Tell us about your outfit tonight? My outfit tonight was chosen for comfort. I'm a firm believer if you’re comfortable in your clothing you’re more relaxed - there's nothing worse than fiddling with you clothes all night, I love the black leather trousers they are a wardrobe staple! The t- shirt was something I bought without trying on first, I just liked it. How would you describe ‘Bournemouth style’? Bournemouth style tends to be very dressy, guys are looking very groomed and preppy but especially with the ladies, I think it can go too far with the layers of lashes, big big hair, tiny dresses, dark fake tan - I think we give Essex a run for its money, I'd like to see a little bit more natural . What is your favourite item in your wardrobe something you’ll never part with? My favourite item of clothing is a Criminal soft black leather jacket - its so feminine but importantly it's timeless too. What is your greatest indulgence in your fashion life? My greatest fashion indulgence is without doubt shoes. I stay in shape by? I stay in shape by running and going to the gym, I still eat whatever I want as I feel I have a good balance. Favourite feature? My favourite feature is my eyes, the eyes are the window to the soul as they say. Go-to beauty brand? My go to beauty brand is Skinceuticals for skin care products, and I'm a fan of the high street for make up, brands like Benefit, Bourjouis, and good old Rimmel. Beauty secret? My best beauty secret is a decent nights sleep and plenty of water above any product! Best beauty advice ever given to me? The best advice I was given was to let your personality shine through, don't overdo yourself in make up, it ends up being the only thing you can see. Oh and my mum always taught me to take care of my skin by moisturising daily.

DV8 3 QUESTIONS Question 1: What is your favourite drink?

IT GIRLS JAGER GIRLS Local girls Emma Butler and Abi Pike can be found dishing out the Jager bombs in Aruba at the weekend. Both are hard working and humble and will certainly liven up your evening.

Question 2: Do you prefer sunbathing or swimming? Question 3: Where can we find you on the beach? LIZ BATCHELOR Loves Vodka and Tonic. Will pitch her towel anywhere along the beach in the sun and will dive in when it gets too hot. 40 | DV8BOURNEMOUTH.COM

EMILY KITCHENER Loves swimming and sunbathing on Sandbanks beach. At the bar Emily isn’t too far away from a Disaronno and coke.

HANNA USHER Loves to drink Long Island Iced Tea. Prefers laying back on the beach towel near the pier than dipping her toe in the water.

IT BOY JOHN ROSE Work by day party monster by night. This is a lad with unique style.
