The AFC Business Cycle Team is looking to break the £10,000 fundraising mark this summer when they will be taking part in the Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride. The team, made up of local businesses, raised over £8,000 in 2011, and have now set their sights on beating last year’s total. The bike ride, which was started in 1989 and has raised almost £1 million since its creation, a milestone that the charity is hoping to pass this summer. This year’s ride will be held on Sunday 1st July and is set to been even bigger. Members of the AFC Business team can prepare for the ride with free spinning classes at The Club in Meryick Park and can meet at weekends with the rest of the group, and choose to cycle distances between ten and one hundred miles. With over 4,000 people diagnosed with cancer each year in Dorset the bike ride raises essential funds to help Macmillan to provide practical, medical, emotional and financial support to those who are living with cancer. Volunteer Ride Organiser Peter Smith-Nicholls said, "The AFC Business Cycle Team made an amazing contribution to the 2011 Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride which helped us reach our £100,000 target in Macmillan's Centenary. It would be fantastic if AFC Business could raise £10,000 in 2012 and help

us to exceed last year’s record.” AFC Bournemouth commercial director Rob Mitchell said, “It was a tremendous effort by everyone involved to raise the money we did last year, but I’m confident we can do even better this time round. “It’s a fantastic cause and we are really proud to be able to support Macmillian and all the vital work that they do. “The event is run and organised entirely by volunteers so that every single penny goes directly to where it is needed. “It’s a real team effort and that’s what makes it so enjoyable. We’re all raising money for the same cause, but we meet up and train together as well. That support is really important during training and on the day. “I would like to thank the staff at The Club in Meyrick Park and everyone who has supported us over the last two years. “It’s more important than ever to get behind Macmillan and we are determined to raise as much as we can.” AFC Business is AFC Bournemouth’s free to join business club and is made up of a partnership between AFC Bournemouth, Bournemouth Chamber of Trade & Commerce, Hill Osborne, Jaluch Ltd. and Macmillan Cancer Support.

UK landlords anticipate that in 2012 both overall rent arrears and severe rent arrears will rise, further increasing the number tenant evictions. Reducing the Risk- There is a concern, among some, that this gloomy forecast for 2012 may drive some inexperienced and accidental landlords from the market, opting to sell or keep their properties off the rental market. However, landlords with rental properties are urged not to give in too easily and persevere to make

NO RISK NO HASSLE NO BRAINER

Kerrigan Powell's partners, 'Legal 4 Landlords', have recently published an alarming report highlighting the increase in court orders for eviction by 11% in 2011. More evictions are expected in 2012 as rent arrears are set to rise in the UK Private Rented Sector, (PRS) as more landlords are forced to deal with tenants who cannot afford the rental payments on their residential property. Court Orders for Evictions Rising by 11% - In the last quarter of 2011, 78,970 tenants had rent arrears, with 11,400 more tenants over 8 weeks in arrears than in the same period of 2010, a rise of 18%.Furthermore, 24,966 tenants were in the process of dealing with eviction notices, an increase of 11%.

? NURSERY FURNITURE Blow the baby budget with lots of beautiful furniture and decorative ideas

Flower Fairies inspired bedroom from Dragons of Walton Street, with nursery furniture starting from around £3,000 and murals from £5,000

Singer Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z have reportedly splashed out £1 million on their new baby’s nursery including a diamante encrusted high chair. Gabrielle Fagan finds out how to kit out a celeb-style room for your little star. Every baby is a star in its proud parents’ eyes but celebrities certainly like to give theirs the redcarpet treatment from the moment they’re born. When it comes to creating a nursery, nothing but the best will do and no luxurious detail is overlooked, whether it’s furniture embellished with glittering crystals, elaborate fantasy murals, or exquisite hand-built furniture. Singer Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z reportedly spent around £1 million kitting out three nurseries in their various homes for daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born this month (January). As well as a miniature pink bath, studded with 45,000 Swarovski crystals, and a matching high chair (£10,000), they’re

also said to have a solid gold rocking horse as one of their daughter’s first toys. “It’s certainly not unusual for those with wealth and status to opt for the ‘wow’ factor,” says Lizzie Mackey, senior designer at nursery boutique Dragons of Walton Street, which boasts many celebrity clients. “This is a room on which people lavish a huge amount of care, attention and money. And they want it to match the rest of their home and their style. ’They view a nursery as a particularly special space. After all, it’s their child’s first view of the world and a room they will probably never forget, so getting it right is incredibly important to them.” On-trend parents are opting for more colour and personality in their rooms, and moving away from neutrals, she says. There’s a desire to create out-of-this-world settings, often featuring hand-painted murals. “One of my favourite nurseries had a cot upholstered to resemble a fluffy cloud, with drapes hung

with crystal droplets to replicate rain drops, and we created a mural to resemble a glowing pink sunrise and sky. It cost around £90,000.” The company furnished a nursery for singer Lily Allen, whose daughter, Ethel Mary, was born in November. It supplied pieces hand-decorated with ladybirds and bumble bees. “She fell in love with a fabric which featured garden insects and we worked around that theme. It was colourful and magical, but very peaceful,” she says. “People love bespoke details. For Elton John’s baby son we made a miniature chair featuring musical notes. Clients view crafted bespoke pieces as heirlooms which can be handed down through the generations.” Even if your budget isn’t celebrity-sized, you can be inspired by the style of Beyonce, Victoria Beckham, Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera. Create a knock-out nursery for your VIB (Very Important Baby) with our pick of best buys for baby. 27


? BEYONCE The R&B singer and her rapper husband are not known as the King and Queen of Bling for nothing, and their three nurseries sparkle with style, crystals and chandeliers. “When my client is someone who ‘models’ nappies and takes naps the majority of the day, a room should be simple but stunning,” says interior designer Lori Gardner who spent months creating the Swarovski crystal-studded baby bath for the couple. “A neutral palette, soft lighting, quality linens and a few luxurious items combine to create a perfect nursery - ensuring baby’s first taste of life is served on a silver spoon!” GET THE LOOK Beyonce’s miniature Swarovski-studded porcelain bath, £3,200, from The Diamond BathTub.

VICTORIA BECKHAM

MARIAH CAREY

The fashion designer and former Spice Girl reportedly treated her daughter Harper Seven, now seven months old to a £50,000 ‘pink, very girly and OTT’ nursery. It’s French-inspired handcarved furniture included an £1,800 wardrobe featuring rabbits frolicking around the frame, and a chaise longue. “A traditional choice of pink for a girl remains popular,” says Mackey. “One particularly glamorous nursery had a centrepiece of a fourposter cot upholstered in pink linen with drapes pinned with huge crystal buttons.”

Singer Mariah Carey and her husband, Nick Cannon, created a serene nursery in ivory and pale green for their boy and girl twins, Moroccan and Monroe, now nine months old. Carey’s aim was to conjure a “beautiful, tranquil, cosy environment” and it was embellished with her signature motif, butterflies and featured a huge toy giraffe, which was a gift from Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne. “Personalising the space is essential and those little touches are very important to celebrities,” says Toks Aruoture, owner of specialist nursery company Punkin Patch. “Mel B has hand-painted violet orchids on her nursery wall in Los Angeles, and a Big Ben wall clock to remind her of the UK.”

? CHRISTINA AGUILERA Singer and actress Christina Aguilera made a feature of an 11-foot crescent moon structure, a prop from her 2007 Back to Basics tour, in her son Max’s nursery, which also had a round cot and a mural. “Safari murals are particularly popular for boys,” says Mackey. “Usually they feature on one wall, but we decorated a whole room with one which spanned four scenes - the African jungle, polar bears in a snowy landscape, geese flying over Canadian mountains, and monkeys in Indonesia. “It’s all about stimulating the child’s imagination and creating a fantasy setting.” Murals, from Dragons, start from £5,000.

We can all suffer ‘room envy’ at the sight of those glamorous settings in magazines or on television, but emulating their style in our homes seems ever more impossible in these cash-strapped times. “We’ve all become so much more style aware these days. There’s just so much inspiration all around us, from gorgeous film and TV locations through to those boutique hotels,” says Isobel McKenzie-Price, editorial director of Ideal Home magazine. “But just because money’s a little tighter than before, it doesn’t mean we’re prepared to compromise when it comes to decorating our own homes.” McKenzie-Price has interpreted the signature styles of interior designers Kelly

Hoppen, Tricia Guild and Nicky Haslam in February’s issue using affordable high-street homeware and furnishings. “The good news is that it doesn’t take a millionaire bank balance to achieve great style,” she says encouragingly. “All you need to do is take inspiration from successful designers who use clever tricks that work just as well with high-street buys as they do with really high-end schemes.” Together with some canny budget buys, she shows it’s not difficult to create a room that won’t just attract compliments but will also leave you feeling smug you haven’t bust the budget. So take lessons from the designers and transform your home.

HASLAM’S OPULENT GLAMOUR

HOPPEN’S CHIC LOOK

Nicky Haslam’s trademark style is all about charm and wit, combining classic elements with no-holds-barred modern glamour. “Think theatre,” says Haslam. “Go for all-out opulence, glitz and glamour. Ornate fireplaces and delicate panelling will add to the whimsical feel. This style should really get people talking.” For a dining room, use a classic combination of crisp white cotton for a tablecloth and linen upholstery, and then an injection of shimmer using silver-effect candelabra, crystal glassware and decanters. Add sensual luxury with soft silks for curtains and cushions, and the finishing touch - an over-the-top floral centrepiece.

Kelly Hoppen’s style is a fusion of east and west, combining simplicity with sumptuous textures and luxe finishes, and a colour palette of taupes, beiges and creams with black as a grounding, defining colour. Creating symmetry is key to her streamlined, structured style and it helps create a calm, ordered interior for a living space. She advises positioning furniture to line up neatly around an existing feature, such as a fireplace or window. “Sofas should face one another and armchairs should be at a 45-degree angle to sofas.” When adding shelves, pictures and pieces of furniture, position them in exact symmetry with the larger pieces of furniture.

DESIGNER TIPS

DESIGNER TIPS

Over-scale or under-scale elements in a room make them a focal point. For example a large chandelier and a ceiling-high mirror will contrast with neat wall lights and tiny tea light holders. Limit the number of accessories to avoid a cluttered effect, but choose items that are luxurious-looking.

Use the same paint colour on walls, woodwork and ceiling to create a seamless backdrop. Mix textures by teaming hard surfaces with soft fabrics, such as a lacquered table next to an upholstered sofa. Accessorise boldly with oversized vases, big prints, huge arrangements of artificial flowers, and sculptural lighting.

LOVE THE LOOK

LOVE THE LOOK

For a cream look try Café Au Lait from Le Petit Palais range by Crown, £17.98 for 2.5 litres, and Colours by B&Q Matt paint, Water, £13.98 for 2.5 litres. And add delicate colour with Duck Egg silk emulsion, £14.49, from the Home of Colour range at Homebase. Make subtle statements with a Mia Long Drop Acrylic & Gloss Fitting chandelier, £55.24 from Dunelm Mill and Bombay Single Wall (light) with pullstring, £16.98 from B&Q; Henriksdal chair, £79, cover £20, available in store, Ikea; Tesco basic faux silk cushion, duck egg, £6.

Start with taupe on all large areas, then add definition with lots of black, and finally lift the scheme with white accents. Paints such as Opulence Emulsion paint, Dark Truffle, £21.98 for 2.5 litres from B&Q, and London Bridge, £19.50 for 2.5 litres from Graham & Brown would suit this look. Make a statement with an L-shaped sofa, such as a Kivik sofa bed with footstool, from £904 from Ikea. Black and white accessories: Spindle Table Lamp, £45, Tesco; Kelly Hoppen framed print, £64.50, and White Rose Cylinder Glass vase, £39.84, both from QVC.

GUILD’S VIBRANT COLOUR Tricia Guild, founder of Designers Guild, is known for her skilful colour combinations and innovative interpretations of style. “No colour is too bold or too zingy,” she says. “Rev it up by choosing the brightest shades and then balance them with a high percentage of black and white.” Don’t be afraid to mix modern and antique furniture, as well as vintage and new accessories, and create maximum impact by combining patterns of varying sizes rather than playing it safe with co-ordinates.

DESIGNER TIPS Customise inexpensive high-street buys to give them designer style, for instance try gluing bobble trim to the bottom edges of lampshades, trimming bed linen with lengths of satin ribbon or sewing a covered button on to the centre of a plain cushion. Be creative in accessorising

and go for statement lighting, colourful frames, unusual artwork and displays of garden flowers arranged in quirky containers from old jam jars to wine goblets.

LOVE THE LOOK Choose from the Rock Candy palette of pinks by Dulux, which comes in a range of finishes and starts from £21.69 for 2.5 litres. Or go for a Just One Coat gloss paint in cream, Contemporary, £11.99 from Homebase and Beatrice Pink & Black Wallcovering, £13.98 per role, B&Q. Refuse to play it safe, and mix up furniture shades, with a Linea 15 Pink Cotton Tapered drum shade, £11 from House of Fraser, and the ivory painted dressing table and chair Sophie Vanity set, £250 from Next. Dress a bed with a Medallion print bed set from £40 Medallion printed pillows from £10, round medallion cushion £16 from Next.

DREAM HOME

QUEEN’S PARK, BOURNEMOUTH

A great example of a period property that has been updated to incorporate all the practical necessities, but with a real feel for the intrinsic character of the house. The present owners have carried out numerous improvements and all done with a confident understanding of interior design. Stand out rooms for us include the beautifully decorated lounge, the very stylish entrance hall, super kitchen/dining room, and a really pretty garden. Starting with the lounge, one highlight is the superb ornate fireplace, with a very effective woodburner to warm things up on a frosty night. A door leads out to a charming period conservatory, a good spot to look out over the garden. The spacious entrance hall has a black and white theme, with tiled floor and ‘funky’ black radiator and a staircase up to the landing has a lovely oriel window to bring in lots of light. The combined kitchen/dining room runs down one side of the house, and is a very familyfriendly arrangement, with a well fitted kitchen widening out to the dining room. There is plenty of room there for a large table, and it’s a great place to enjoy a meal, looking out through the French doors at the garden. The front sitting room could be used as a completely separate dining room if required. We love the rear garden, which is secluded and faces south west to make the most of any sun. There are lots of different flowers and shrubs, patio and pathways. St Ledgers Road is a cul-de-sac, very close to Queens Park Golf Course, and also within walking distance of The Park School. Nearby Wessex Way gives an easy route out of town for commuters. All in all, a very desirable family home.

QUAY’S ORCHARD PLAZA HAT-TRICK! Quay Living have announced a hat-trick of sales of Orchard Plaza apartments over the Christmas period. Just as other agents were slowing down for the festive break, Quay experienced a flurry of year-end activity. One viewing, between Christmas and New Year, resulted in a same-day offer which the client accepted... Only to find that both sides’ solicitors were still closed for Christmas! Managing Partner, Helen Challis commented, “As we’re available 363 days a year for our holiday letting guests, the office remains open for enquiries and viewings right over the Christmas break. With Boxing Day behind them, many folk start thinking about the year ahead, and use the holiday to start their property search.” Quay Living’ Sales and Lettings Manager, Nick Crompton-Smith has seen an encouraging increase

in sales enquiries and viewings in January. “We are lucky in Poole – as well as owner-occupiers, our seaside location appeals to second-home buyers and holidaylet investors. Cash-rich buyers are now more confident that prices have stabilised, and they are tired of watching their cash being whittled away by below-inflation returns. An investment property or second home is now making good sense, and at Orchard Plaza Quay Living is on site to manage it for them.

Further apartments are due to be released shortly, so prospective buyers are encouraged to contact the Sales Team on 01202 683444 for further details.

? FIERY START TO THE YEAR As we celebrate the Chinese New Year, Ken Hom offers up five easy Chinese supper recipes.

If you haven’t ordered your whole pig ready for roasting yet - to encourage good luck and family unity for the coming year, of course - you’re clearly running a little behind. Still, there are a few days left to prepare your typical Chinese feast in honour of the Chinese New Year festival, which runs into February. Already the most important holiday in the Chinese calendar, this year it’s taking on mythical proportions as the propitious ‘dragon’ zodiac sign takes charge of our fates. Beds in Beijing’s maternity hospitals are reportedly

already booked up for summer, as Chinese mothers plan to bring a charmed child into the world who’ll benefit from the wealth, wisdom, courage and power represented by dragon. In the kitchen, it also means turning up the heat on New Year celebrations. Steamed fish will be a common sight, as fish (‘yu’) has come to represent prosperity, and will be served with the head and tail attached to ensure a good beginning and end to the year. Recipes will also include symbolic ingredients such as dried oysters, bamboo shoots, black moss

STIR-FRIED PORK WITH SPINACH METHOD

675g fresh spinach

Wash the spinach thoroughly and remove all the stalks, leaving just the leaves. Set aside. Slice the pork into strips of 1cm x 7.5cm and put them in a bowl. Add all the marinade ingredients, mix well and leave to marinate for 10 minutes.

2tbsp coarsely chopped garlic 1tbsp finely shredded fresh root ginger 1tsp sugar 1tbsp light soy sauce 2tsp dark soy sauce Salt and freshly ground black pepper 2tbsp coarsely chopped spring onions, to garnish Salt and freshly ground black pepper

FOR THE MARINADE 2tsp light soy sauce 1tsp Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry 1tsp sesame oil 2tsp cornflour

INGREDIENTS

3tbsp groundnut oil

100 Easy Chinese Suppers by Ken Hom is published in paperback by BBC Books, priced £7.99, or try the My Kitchen Table iPhone app, available from iTunes.

HOUSE FAVOURITE

(SERVES 2-4)

450g lean pork fillet

and dumplings for wealth, long noodles for long life and seeds that represent having many children. Luckily for those new to Far Eastern cooking, TV chef Ken Hom has recently published a book of easy to follow recipes. Here are five to help you celebrate the Chinese New Year deliciously...

Heat a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. Add the groundnut oil and, when it is very hot and slightly smoking, add the pork and stir-fry for three minutes, until browned. Drain immediately in a colander set inside a bowl, leaving one tablespoon of oil in the wok. Reheat the wok. Add the garlic, ginger and some salt and pepper, then stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the spinach and stir-fry for about two minutes to coat the spinach leaves thoroughly in the mixture. When the spinach has wilted to about a third of its original volume, add the sugar, soy sauce and cooked pork. Stir-fry for two minutes, then transfer to a serving platter and garnish with the spring onions. Serve at once.

Add the marinated prawn and pork mixture and simmer for two minutes. Add the beancurd and the remaining fish sauce and simmer for another two minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then remove from the heat and garnish with the chives and chillies before serving.

STEAMED SCALLOPS WITH CHILLI & GINGER (SERVES 4) INGREDIENTS

DOUBLE TROUBLE Adam Sandler's films have grossed billions at the box office and he's scored big in America once again with his new film Jack And Jill,

82


EXTRA TIME Adam Sandler was born on September 9, 1966, in Brooklyn, New York. He had a recurring role in The Cosby Show as family friend Smitty. It's tradition for Sandler to include his family members in small cameos in the film, and you can see his two daughters jumping up and down in Jack And Jill. His comedy albums on Warner Bros Records have gone multi-platinum and collectively sold more than six million copies to date. He was voted 41st in the Forbes Celebrity 100 list of the world's most powerful celebrities last year.

Adam Sandler's films have grossed billions at the box office and he's scored big in America once again with his new film Jack And Jill, which is released in the UK on Friday, February 3. The Hollywood actor talks about playing both titular roles, brushing off Al Pacino's advances and how he hopes his latest film might stop his family talking to him.

If you're after some light relief, Adam Sandler's latest comedy should fit the bill. In Jack And Jill, Sandler plays both titular twins who reunite once a year for Thanksgiving when Jack finds himself enduring - rather than enjoying - his sister's company. "Jill's very lonely. Their mum passed away and she used to live with her, so she's out in the Bronx all alone," says 45-year-old Sandler in a slightly nasal Brooklyn accent. "They're twins, so Jill has a strong bond with Jack, but for some reason he wanted to break free. He now has a successful life as an ad executive out in California and is married to a lovely lady who takes good care of him and the children, and he's happy." As is tradition, Jack and Jill get off on the wrong foot, and Jack tries to make amends by asking his sister to stay so he can show her everything LA has to offer. This includes a Lakers basketball game where they come across Al Pacino, the very man Jack's client is demanding appears in a Dunkin' Donuts advert. But when he approaches Pacino, the actor's more interested in getting to know his wacky sister. "I remember he was so excited. He said: 'I get to work with 'the' Adam Sandler?'" jokes the actor, when discussing Pacino's reaction to starring in the film. The Godfather actor plays a heightened version of himself, a man who, having played one too many roles, is starting to confuse reality with the parts he's playing. "We wrote the part for him but never thought he'd do it. He read the script and laughed," says Sandler, dressed casually in grey combats and a blue and white checked shirt. "He did ask, 'So who's playing Jill?' and I said, 'Oh, don't worry, we've got a hot one for you'," he laughs. "Jill's a big girl, and fearless. She doesn't try and look gorgeous all the time, which made it easier," says Sandler on bringing his female alter-ego to life. In fact, it wasn't too difficult to embrace his inner woman, he insists. "That's when I got my biggest laughs growing up. I'd do John Wayne and a couple of other old-timers pretty well when I was a kid, but

then I'd put the babushka [scarf] on my head and come in as my grandmother - and that always brought the house down." As the film's co-writer, Sandler admits he was inspired by various family members. "It's just a mixture of all the Sandler family, and hopefully when they see the movie, they'll all stop talking to me," he deadpans. "Nah, I don't really mock anybody. Mostly because I love them but also, a lot of them would hit me," he says. "My sisters are stronger and my brother's bigger than me. And even though my father's not here anymore, I have a fear of his ghost coming back and beating the hell out of me." His female incarnation doesn't resemble his mother, he adds. "No, my mother's a good looking, short redhead," he exclaims. Just like Jack, Sandler admits to feeling a little tetchy ahead of family gettogethers: "I get nervous. I'm like, 'Oh, my God, here it comes'. When they get here, it's usually great, and if it gets out of control, it's a good story to talk about after they leave." Sandler was only 17 when he decided to give stand-up a go and spontaneously took to the stage at a Boston comedy night. From that moment, he was hooked and regularly performed in comedy clubs throughout the state while studying Fine Arts at New York University.

He was spotted by stand-up comedian Dennis Miller, who recommended him to the producer of Saturday Night Live and he was soon regularly writing and performing for the show. Then, in 1995, he left to concentrate on a movie career. In total, his films have grossed more than three billion dollars worldwide and he co-owns Happy Madison Productions, now a mini self-contained studio that oversees all aspects of production on films, including Jack And Jill. It's little wonder Sandler enjoys whatever downtime he has with his family. "Because you're close and they know

you best, you're allowed to be yourself in front of them," says Sandler. "That's maybe why you fight a lot, because you allow yourself to. With friends and people who aren't as close to you, you have your guard up - you don't want them to know you can lose it." He recently shot the movie Donny's Boy in Massachusetts, close to his hometown Manchester, New Hampshire, where his family moved when he was five years old. "It's where I grew up, so my family kept coming by - it was great," he says.

"I want my kids [Sadie, 5, and Sunny, 3, with his wife Jackie] to get to know my family as well as they can." In Jack And Jill, Jack's wife is played by Mrs Tom Cruise, the former Dawson's Creek actress Katie Holmes. "I was looking for someone who could tolerate her husband losing his mind on occasion and still maintain a pleasant household," explains Sandler. "I've met Katie before and felt she would do a great job at that." The two couples double dated a few times, he says, and recalls one particular dinner: "We were getting ready to shoot the film and Tom said, 'It's weird that my wife's going to be your wife in the movie, it's bizarre'," remembers Sandler. "I said, 'This is a PG movie, don't worry, nothing's going to happen. In fact, anything I do with your wife in the movie, you can do with my wife in real life'. "And so, every morning I'd go to the set and hear my wife say, 'Please do a love scene'." Sandler may be one of Hollywood's highest earners, but you sense the awards and acclaim aren't driving forces in his life. "To be honest with you, when I got into this, I never thought about reviews. I never thought about what people would say about me. I was just a young guy who was excited to become a comedian and actor," he says. "I wasn't growing up thinking, 'One day I'll get an Oscar and make a speech'. I just want to do the best work I can." 83

HEALTH & FITNESS

Spencer Cuckney www.bournemouthfitbodybootcamp.com

GOOD START

EASY, HEALTHY OPTIONS Why aren’t your children eating a healthy breakfast each day? If it’s because your family is too rushed in the morning or you think you don’t have extra time to make them a homemade nutritious meal, it’s time to change your thinking. There are plenty of easy, fast, healthy foods to have readily available for your kids to grab and eat on the way. Any food is better than no food for breakfast, but healthy foods give your kids the energy they require to make it until lunch. A great way to knock out breakfast is to handle it the night before by hard-boiling some eggs. Hard-boiled eggs are a great source of protein and are fast and easy in the morning.  You can also keep some small yogurt containers in the refrigerator for your kids to grab on the go. And of course, keep whole-grain bread, English muffins, or bagels on hand to toss in the toaster.  You can also warm up microwavable oatmeal or let the kids eat cereal bars in the car. Keep whole-grain, low-sugar cereals on hand that kids can eat with lowfat milk or yogurt. And lastly, keep fresh fruit such as apples, bananas, and pears readilyw available to eat on the go. These are all nutritious options that are easy for mums or even kids to make themselves. 

15 SIMPLE WAYS TO BE FIT

So before rushing out the door tomorrow morning, make sure to give your kids a good start to the day. Fuel them up with a quick, healthy breakfast. They may not thank you, but their stomachs, minds, and teachers will. Healthy eating goes hand in hand with maintaining a consistent and challenging exercise program. Call or email me today to get started on one of my programs that will get you feeling younger and more energetic than you thought possible. bananas, and pears readilyw available to eat on the go. These are all nutritious options that are easy for mums or even kids to make themselves. 

KIDS BREAKFAST Your mornings may be hectic, the alarm may not go off, or the kids may not seem hungry first thing after waking up. Whatever your reasons may be, skipping breakfast puts your kids at a distinct disadvantage. And while you know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, approximately 40% of children don’t eat breakfast on a regular basis. 

Being fit comes from living the following simple everyday practices: 1. Throw out your big dinner plates. Using small plates at home effortlessly reduces calorie intake and promotes weight loss. 2. Make exercise a regular part of your life. Create a network of accountability with workout partners or by working with me, your local fitness expert. 3. Know what you want to accomplish. Visualise the end result of your hard work. 4. Believe in yourself. I know that you CAN accomplish your goals. 5. Don’t be a wimp. Keep the intensity high during your workouts. Remember that you don’t want to kill time; you want to burn calories and strengthen your body through intense exercise. 6. Drink water all day long. 7. Keep consistent. Exercise at least three or four times each week. 8. Incorporate High Intensity Interval Training into your routine by doing bursts of high intensity rather than exercising at a single steady pace. 9. Maintain your metabolism by eating a healthy snack or meal every three hours. This food should be unprocessed, low in fat and high in fibre. 10. Forget will-power; it’s about WANT-power. How badly do you want it? 11. Never eat processed foods. These items are high in empty calories and contain a plethora of chemicals that are harmful to your health. 12. Fat contains twice the caloric density of carbohydrates and protein, so limit the amount of it that you eat. Fill your diet with lean protein and carbohydrates from leafy plants and whole grains. 13. It’s OK to be a sceptic. Watch out for products that are labelled as ‘health food’. Always read the nutrition labels and make your own informed opinion. 14. Exercise with people that are in better shape than you. This will encourage you to push your limits. 15. Never indulge in negative self-talk.

RUPERT'S HAVING A DEAD GOOD TIME Dashing actor Rupert Penry-Jones is back on the small screen in a new series of ITV1's Whitechapel, starting on Monday, January 30. He opens up about fatherhood and putting his Hollywood hopes behind him.

112


EXTRA TIME TRUE LIFE CRIMES Just some of the horrific crimes that inspired Whitechapel... •

There comes a time in every actor's life, when he finds himself having to entice a fox with a pocketful of chick heads. Well, OK, only if you're on the set of ITV's crime thriller Whitechapel and you're called Rupert Penry-Jones. "That was pretty grim and it did make me feel a bit sick," the well-spoken Spooks star admits. "The fox kept running away, so in order to get it in shot, [the crew] were chopping the heads and legs off dead chicks, which I had to keep in my pocket. "But the chicks were already dead," he adds, carefully. "No animals were harmed in the making of this show..." After two very successful series investigating copycat crimes that echoed those of Jack The Ripper and the Kray twins, Detective Inspector Joseph Chandler (PenryJones), and his sidekicks DS Ray Miles (Phil Davies) and Edward Buchan (Steve Pemberton) are back to tackle more. But this time, Chandler has installed 'Ripperologist' Buchan in the basement under the incident room, where he's given free rein over a vast archive of crime reports. "Now we're using the past as a map, but all the crimes we use were real and some of them are pretty nasty," says Penry-Jones, 41, mentioning that in one scene, a fox runs round London's East End with a human arm in its mouth. The first episode of the new series starts with a massacre at a tailors shop, with eerie echoes of the infamous Ratcliffe Highway murders, and in another storyline, a headless torso is washed up at Putney Bridge, leading Buchan to dig up the unsolved Thames Torso mysteries of 1888, where the remains of a woman were found at three different sites in central London. With its new format of three two-parters, Whitechapel has upped the fear factor and plays out more like a horror than your typical crime series. The walls of the show's art department are even plastered with images from the film Se7en, according to PenryJones. "The torso story is pretty gory. We had prosthetic bodies made and torsos with legs, arms and heads chopped off. You see it all -

it's pretty hardcore." Luckily for the dashingly handsome actor, there's a "very bubbly feeling" on the Whitechapel set, so he doesn't end up having nightmares. "There's lots of banter, so it's a really fun way to earn a living. Doing some plays can be relentlessly depressing. I did a play once where my child got killed at the end of it doing that night after night eight times a week starts to bring you down. "But I live in a fluffy make-believe world most of the time," he adds, laughing. "The news is the most depressing thing to watch on television really, so I think you need dramas like Whitechapel to lighten the load." With cop shows and legal dramas almost two a penny on TV at the moment (Penry-Jones himself is set to don a wig again as barrister Clive Reader in BBC One's Silk), the actor says Whitechapel stands out for not taking itself too seriously. "One of the things I'm finding slightly tiring with the cop genre is the tense, angstridden, serious cops. I'm a bit bored of that. I like stuff that's fresh, like Sherlock, because a lot of things that go on with the characters is very tongue in cheek. "Another thing I love about Whitechapel is its heightened sense of reality. Yes, it's in London, but it's a magical little world." So he's not worried the Olympics organisers will be angry with him for making the East End out to be an evil crime hotspot? He laughs: "I don't think they'd mind, no. If you're going to visit London, Whitechapel is one of the best places to go for a taste of what the city might have been like hundreds of years ago. It's a fantastically atmospheric place." To return to that other London detective, PenryJones believes Sherlock and DI Chandler have quite a bit in common, particularly their inability to form intimate relationships. For Chandler, this comes down to his obsessive compulsive disorder: "He's a very particular type of man and it's easier to suffer being alone than to have somebody come into his life and try to compromise." But there are a few love interests this series. "In each story, there's a new woman

Mary Ann Cotton: Born in 1832, she was convicted of murdering her children and is believed to have murdered up to 21 people, mainly by arsenic poisoning. Dr Crippen: An American homeopathic physician hanged in Pentonville Prison, London, on November 23, 1910, for the murder of his wife. It's thought that Crippen was using hyoscine on his wife as a depressant or aphrodisiac, but accidentally gave her an overdose. HH Holmes (Dr Henry Howard Holmes): In Chicago at the time of the 1893 World's Fair, Holmes opened a hotel that he had designed and built with murder in mind. He confessed to 27 murders, but his actual body count could be as high as 250. Ratcliffe Highway Murders: In 1811, two vicious attacks took place in homes near Wapping in London, resulting in multiple fatalities. John Williams was arrested, but committed suicide in prison. He was buried with a stake through his heart.

he's trying to form some sort of relationship with, but he's very new to the whole thing and it doesn't really work. There are moments where he wants to kiss a woman and can't because he doesn't know how to." Penry-Jones's personal life couldn't be further removed - he's been happily married to actress Dervla Kirwan since 2007, and the pair have two children, Florence, 7, and Peter, 5. "In some ways, it's easier to play roles that are opposite to how you really are," he confides. "The closer to yourself the character is, the harder it can be." And travelling to farflung places like Puerto Rico, where he filmed the recent Sky mini-series Treasure Island, is good fun too. His children came along and had "the best time of their lives" - and it was the first role they've been able to see their dad play. "I wouldn't let them watch Whitechapel," he laughs. Born into an acting family (his mum is Angela Thorne and his father Peter PenryJones), the Londoner says: "I was very proud of them and hope my children are as proud of me." And Florence is already showing signs of following in his footsteps. "I've seen her in a few school plays and she seems to have the basics, she's very confident on stage and not fazed by it. I've got a feeling she's going to be quite good, but I'm certainly not going to push them into it." Having children has shaped the actor's career, he admits. "The passion projects, unless there's a very good reason to do it, have to take a back seat really. My passion project now is to be at home with the kids, when I'm not earning money to pay their school fees," he says, laughing again. "But I'd like to go back to the classical theatre and get some big, heavyweight roles under my belt. I find period pieces very enjoyable, I'd like to do more boots and breeches stuff." So there's no swanning off to Hollywood on the horizon? "I'm very happy here," he says, smiling. "All my friends who have gone to LA have left the work here for me. I'm just going to stay and mop up after them!"

Should I buy or should I sell?” If you are a landlord who likes to know they are secure, the basis on which you value your portfolio of shares and securities has its impact on the business profits or losses which arise every year for tax purposes. In the property industry the goal is to maximize asset value and understanding exactly what your asset is worth from a lettings and sales point of view, which means you can invest your time and money in worthwhile projects. Have you ever typed ‘portfolio valuation’ into Google? If you have, or do after reading this, you will realise that there is plethora of information out there, if you want complicated mathematical formulae and graphs showing depreciation. This is ok, for bankers and stockbrokers, for the everyday individual (and of course us property professionals!) we want clear, concise and easy to read information on the sale and rental properties around us and our investment purchases.

LET AGREED

It makes for much easier reading if you can find out what has sold in an immediate mile radius and how much for. YOUknow allows you to find out the sold prices and dates for properties that have been bought and sold over the whole of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole from land registry data since 1995. If you register your details with us we will send you monthly reports on the properties sold in the immediate area surrounding any of the properties in your portfolio. So if you are thinking about selling some/all of ® your investment portfolio YOUhome can help you decide when the time is right to achieve the maximum value from your asset portfolio. Call us and we can help you value your portfolio with accurate up to date information.

Just sit back and chill!

I used to be terrible at thinking too much. Or what I should say is that I used to spend too much time thinking about things. I was the master of the “what if’” and potential consequences of scenarios that may or may not happen in life. A friend of mine calls it “paralysis by over analysis” where you think about a problem or situation so much that it inhibits you from actually doing anything about it. I think this is something that quite often happens when you become a parent. Children do not come with instruction manuals, but if they did, it would probably eliminate so much unusual behaviour from new mums and dads where rational thoughts are exchanged for more random ones which sometimes lead to extreme actions. Here are a few examples of New Parent Neuroses. I have a friend who (when washing her baby’s hair for the first time) was concerned about how true the shampoo’s “no more tears” claim happened to be. She was so concerned she actually squirted some into her own eyes first to find out if it would make her cry. Another considered learning sign language before the baby arrived so that her and her husband could communicate effectively around the baby without waking the sleeping infant up. This is the same friend who enrolled said baby into the local library at the age of 2 weeks old. Hopefully it will still be open by the time he is old enough to enjoy it. The gadget industry has identified a market here and constantly comes up with things that ease new parent neuroses, like the wet wipe warmer. Antibacterial wet wipes are a parent’s best friend and you can now buy a gadget for the nursery which plugs into the wall and keeps them heated so that your child never has to endure the shock of having his or her bottom cleansed by a cold one. As the children grow older, for some the neurosis does not ease. I know of one mother who (whilst weaning her child) was so concerned about potential allergic reactions, that she would introduce new types of food whilst parked in the hospital multi-story. New Parent Neurosis is not just confined to mothers but also spreads to fathers too. I heard this story in the pub at the weekend, while watching the rugby with a friend. He admitted that, in order to make sure that his snuffly twomonth old baby could feed in comfort, he would suck the snot from the child’s nostrils to clear his airways before he suckled. The revelation was almost enough to put me off my pint. Almost. But then I thought for a moment and asked myself if I would do the same? And the answer was “yes… if I thought it was best for the baby then I probably would”

Q A

SHARRON CANNING MOVE ON RENTALS If you would like to be placed on our mailing list for up to date information on the latest legislations then please email Sharon@moveonrentals.com

Help, I need to carry out a Gas safety Certificate on my rented property, but the tenant keeps saying it is inconvenient. As a Landlord it is my duty to ensure a current certificate is always in place. Can I go in with my keys with the Gas Engineer as long as I give the minimum 24 hours notice? This is a very common question I get asked, whether it be for the Gas Safety Certificate as in your situation or general repairs or viewings. Most tenancies have written in to permit access after 24 hours notice, however this is for emergencies only (and that means something serious, such as a fire). A tenancy gives exclusive possession of a property to the tenant and they have the right to ‘quiet enjoyment’ during their tenancy, a term or concept which is implied in all Tenancy Agreements. It does not mean that tenants have to be quiet or enjoy themselves it means the Landlord should leave tenants to live in the property in peace. The tenants’ right to keep everyone out of his property will override and access can only be gained by invitation or acceptance from the tenant. This can be particularly frustrating to a landlord when they are looking to gain access for viewings in the final month or as in your case trying to access the property to conduct a legal requirement by you the landlord. You can apply to the courts for an injunction to gain access The general rules are if after three attempts on trying to gain access you have still not been able to gain entry and you can prove this (copies of letters) and you have contacted health and safety and reported the matter you will not be prosecuted as failure to have a Gas Safety Certificate in place can lead to a £5000 fine. This is probably not what you want to hear, however the law is strict on this. Under no circumstances try to access the property with your own keys without agreement from the tenant. You can follow us on our blog through out website www.moveonrentals.com, on twitter and now Facebook.

letting agent......................

The Localism Act 2011 makes important changes to tenancy deposit protection under the Housing Act 2004. These changes are likely to come into effect in April 2012 and do away with mandatory penalties for landlords or their agents who do not register the tenant’s deposit. Instead, courts will be allowed to use their discretion to hand out penalties worth between one and three times the value of an unprotected deposit.

Changes to EPC’s

AST Agreements

– all properties offered for rent must have an EPC. Changes are on the way and will be implemented from the 1st April 2012. Reports will give clearer signposting to the Green Deal being promoted by the CHLG and recommendations of works that could be funded through this initiative.

– How old is yours? Is it up to date with correct reference to legislation and robust enough if challenged? Ours are regularly checked by specialist solicitors to ensure they are watertight.

Landlords – it’s not just

about getting a tenant at the best rent but about getting the best tenant at the right rent. Tenants who only stay for 6 months mean voids, additional letting costs, repairs additional wear and tear and the result is less income to you.

Is an Inventory necessary – we think it’s a really essential addition to any letting agreement. It cuts out all arguments and disagreement over the state of the property at the end of the tenancy – which saves us work and protects both the landlord and tenant.

A CHAT WITH THE HEAD IAIN ROBERTSON BUCKHOLME TOWERS BUCKHOLME ON SAFARI! This week, Longleat Animal Adventure came to Buckholme Towers and it wasn’t just the Zebra-striped Landrover that caused a stir! When it comes to spending their money, our Parents Association will not only choose something that will benefit every child, but also something a little different, maybe even unique. Bringing Longleat into school fitted the bill perfectly! Our youngest pupils in Nursery and Reception had their ‘First Animal Encounter’ with a charming and beautiful TALKING parrot named Slater and a very docile Chinchilla, who remarkably slept through the whole experience.

Discussions around Biodiversity and Sustainability lead to quite heated debate amongst our older pupils…..who were then silenced by the introduction of a very large, but thankfully friendly, Tarantula! Far and away the star of the show was the Royal Python, who seemed to thoroughly enjoy the attention and excitement filling the school hall. However, not everyone was as thrilled to meet him – several staff became conspicuous by their absence simply at the mention of his arrival! A wonderful hands-on (for most!) experience, which I am sure many of the pupils (and staff) will remember for years to come!

TO CLOSE, YOUR 11+ MATHS TEASER: What fraction in its lowest terms is equal to (a) 15% (b) 4% ? And the solution to our last Teaser: A motorist travelled 348km in 6 hours. Find his average speed in kmh? Answer: 58 kmh

SIX OF THE BEST

KITCHEN ASSISTANTS OVER THE TOP

"Too many cooks..." We are told the one place in your home where it is better to be alone is the kitchen There is, however, some room for manoeuvre; kitchen assistance can be quite necessary if there is a tedious task to complete. Take a look at this selection of utensils to help give you a hand, and you shouldn't need to crowd your cooking space with extra help. Neither should any of these tools ever be consigned to the dark and forgotten corner of the cupboard with your sandwich toaster and melon baller....

Not only will this device make light work of slicing your pepperonitopped pizza but it will also work on naan breads, pies and toasties. Fashioned in the style of a circular saw, the stainless steel blades will easily glide through doughy bases, and with a removable blade cover, you won't have any problem cleaning off all that stringy cheese! Pizza Boss 3000 £10.99 from www.firebox.com

By Peter Jenkinson

HANG ON Aimed at one of the most popular touchscreens on the market, fix this mount to the underside of your kitchen cabinet and it'll hold your iPad securely while you follow an ebook recipe, watch footage from a TV streamer or play music. And when not in use, it will fold away to keep your kitchen clutter-free. Griffin Adjustable Cabinet Mount (iPad) £54.95 from www.amazon.co.uk

VERY HANDY Harking back to the times of 1980s desktop PCs, these pixelated oven mitts aren't just a practical solution but serve as a decorative item too. It is time to clear your kitchen of floral-fashioned hand protectors and trade up to this pair post haste.

TIDY UP Keeping all your utensils in order while your pans are bubbling away is never easy. The solution we're about to offer is stunningly simple. This set includes five separate utensil heads: a slotted spoon, mixer and three spatulas - and just one handle. Click the handle into the tool you require and you're ready, steady, cook. It's an easy-to-clean, space-saving device that just happens to look rather good, too. Click 'N' Cook Kitchen Set £31.99 from www.firebox.com

ROLLING CLOVER Use this device to chop multiple pieces of garlic cloves in a matter of moments while reminiscing over youthful days playing with toy cars. Just pop the cloves into the top door and roll this gadget to achieve perfectly chopped garlic, and keep your hands clean and odourfree. The more you roll, the finer the garlic becomes how we ever managed without one, who knows? Chef'n Garlic Zoom £6.50 from www.sainsburys.co.uk

APP OF THE WEEK PERFECT EGG TIMER Boiling an egg isn't always as easy as it sounds. In steps My Perfect Egg Timer. This is a simple app allowing you to key in the properties of your egg and assist you in your quest for perfection.

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring

ROAD TEST KIA OPTIMA

by Nick Fletcher

Kia has pitched a strong contender into the business sector, the new Optima saloon. It comes only with a 1.7 litre diesel engine, which offers lower emissions and good economy, thus making it very appealing to the business user. The Optima – priced from £19,995 to £25,995 - is the result of both European and American design and it is a car which does look distinctive and classy. There is a standard 6-speed manual gerarbox, and the option (around £1,500) of a six speed auto transmission, but while slick and smooth, it does result in lower economy and higher emissions – an important cost issue for some potential buyers. Four levels of trim and equipment are available , designated as 1, 2 and 3 and the midrange 2 versions also offer Luxe or Tech versions.

BABY VW’S FIVE-DOOR OPTION Getting into Volkswagen’s award-winning up! city car is now easier than ever, with the introduction of a new five-door model. Rear passengers in the five-door up! benefit from the same space as those in the three-door model.The rear seat base is set slightly higher than that in the front, giving passengers a clearer view of the road ahead. As well as front and side airbags, ABS with Hydraulic Brake Assist, Isofix child seat preparation in the rear and standard ESP (on all but the entry level Take up! model), the up! can be ordered with an optional City Emergency Braking system. This uses sensors to scan the space ahead of the vehicle, applying the brakes automatically if it detects that the car is about to hit an object in front, and costs from £225. The up! has received a five-star rating and the Advanced Award from Euro NCAP, the European

New Car Assessment Programme. It is the first vehicle in this class to receive these awards. The Maps & More infotainment system is a mobile Personal Infotainment Device that was developed to organise navigation, telephone, information and entertainment. It is removable, but unlike many other similar systems of this type, it melds with the car’s network of systems and can be used to view vehicle information, such as the display of the parking sensors (where fitted). The system is standard on the High up! model and above, and optional on the rest of the range. The up! has already received top honours at the prestigious What Car? awards, where it was named Car of the Year for 2012, and has also been named TopGear magazine’s Small Car of the Year. The 3-door model is available from March, priced from £7,995.

NEW TOYOTA PRIUS I recently tested several Optima variants and I think the 2 Tech model at £21, 695 is likely to be a popular choice among business users. It comes with extra features including leather and cloth upholstery, a 7-inch touchscreen Sat Nav and an integrated reversing camera, a premium audio system and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Optima certainly looks sharp and elegant and the interior is excellent, with quality trim and a superior standard of fit and finish. Anyone getting into the car without knowing the maker might well think it was of German standard, a great tribute to the growing status of the Kia marque. On the road, the Optima drives beautifully, with ease and fluency, and delivers very comfortable ride quality and assured handling. Add all that to its obvious build-integrity and eye-catching styling and it becomes immediately clear that the Optima will make a big impact in its sector. For: Quality appearance, drivability, good equipment levels, excellent economy. Against: Massive gaping-mouth front grille is an acquired taste. I think it would look better being smaller! 150

With over 20,000 sales in the UK since its launch in 2009, the third-generation Toyota Prius has been revised and improved. In its latest guise it continues to deliver 89g/ km CO2 emissions – the lowest level in its class – and combined cycle fuel economy of 72.4mpg (the figures for models running on 17-inch wheels remain 92g/km and 70.6mpg). The front of the car has been given a new look, in line with Toyota’s new design approach, while in the cabin there are new front seats, new upholstery and new soft-touch surfaces that combine to give a higher quality feel. Equipment levels have been raised, notably with the introduction as standard on all grades of the Toyota Touch touchscreen control system. The advanced Toyota Touch & Go Plus multimedia and navigation system is a standard feature on Prius T Spirit and an option onT3 & T4. This brings with it Bluetooth, a rear-view camera, USB port and an on-board connectivity feature that allows access to a raft of on-line information services sourced through Google Local Search using a compatible mobile phone. Extra stiffness in the bodyshell and changes to the suspension and steering column have increased comfort and steering feel. UK sales of the revised model range will begin in March, with prices from £21,350. Later in the year Prius will grow, with the introduction of the ultra-efficient Prius Plug-in Hybrid and Prius+, the world’s first seven-seat full hybrid MPV.

RURAL ROAD DANGER The Institure Of Advanced Motorists is renewing its call on the government to make driving on rural A-roads a mandatory part of the driving test. IAM research shows that 82 per cent of rural fatal and serious casualties are on single carriageway roads compared with just 18 per cent on motorways and dual carriageway roads. However the current driving test fails to take this into account. While good instructors understand that experience on a wide variety of roads in different conditions gives young people the best chance of survival, all too many merely educate up to the existing test standard. Knowledge of parking, emergency stops and low speed manoeuvres is important but dealing with high speed corners, bad weather, and overtaking are far more vital skills. The IAM has written to the road safety minister to outline its views on how it believes the government should tackle deaths and accidents of the highest risk group on our roads, young drivers. This starts with improving the driving test to include training on our most dangerous roads – single-carriageway rural A-roads.

THE BIG DENIM MAKEOVER Give your denim drawer an update with the new season jean trends. Lisa Haynes shows you how to find your perfect pair.

153


Begone January blues, the outlook for spring denim is looking bright, with traditional indigos, navies and stonewash jean hues making way for pastels, prints and eyepopping colour. The big denim makeover comes at a time when it’s revealed 75% of British women wear less than a quarter of the jeans in their wardrobe regularly. The findings, by fashion advice site Miss High Street (www. misshighstreet.com) indicate an average ownership of 10 pairs of jeans, leaving at least seven pairs lying neglected in the denim drawer. Time for a new trend-led spree? Hannah Buckley, founder of Miss High Street, recommends a frugal fashion approach: “Don’t splurge on trend jeans because their appeal might be short-lived. “Coloured skinnies are huge this season but opt for some of the cheaper versions on the high street.” Dive into the denim rainbow revolution with our jean-ius guide.

BRIGHT BRIGADE

HOUSE LOVE THEM

How to wear them Be brave and complete the colour block look with a top in a similar shade, or contrast with a metallic tee. MiH Jeans Paris in Strawberry, £155 Des Petits Hauts Joakime tee, £60 Des Petits Hauts Yvonne jacket, £130 Paige Verdugo jeans in Bulb, £195 L’Agence pleated silk blouse mint, £285 Donna Ida (www.donnaida.com) Dorothy Perkins floral jeans, £35 www.dorothyperkins.com

CANDY COLOURED Dolly mixture-inspired shades will be difficult to resist this spring. Whereas last winter was all about leather-look dark and moody jeans, this season is pale and interesting. Denim boutique owner, Donna Ida Thornton (www.donnaida.com) says: “As seen on the catwalks, pastels are so fresh for spring. “From acid colours of sharp lemon to pretty mint shades and soft candy tones, it’s time to embrace a sugary sweet denim palette.”

Topshop MOTO snakeskin print jeans £40 www.topshop.com

PRINT PARADE Made for exhibitionists, eye-catching prints have made their mark on denim. “Prints are key to this season’s denim, from floral to tropical and aquatic for the adventurous,” says Thornton. “Animal print is such a statement, too, which can be worn in faded pastel denim shades of mint, blue or rose, featuring a subtle leopard or snake print for added wow factor.” How to wear them Let these show-stopping jeans do all the work by throwing on a plain white tee and flats for daytime, or black vest and heels in the evening. Yellow skinny jeans, £16 Sorbet block vest, £7 Hoop earrings, £6, Matalan www.matalan.co.uk 154

The block brights that dazzled throughout 2011 are going nowhere fast. Red jeans are practically vying with traditional blues as a denim staple. Thornton says: “There’s no escaping the rainbow of shades which will be hitting the denim boutiques in spring. “Hot pinks, cobalt blues and aquamarine look stunning in skinny jeans.”


CROPPED CAPERS

FANATICAL ABOUT FIT

If you can’t bare to be parted from your blues, step into summer with a pair of cropped jeans. Shoe addicts will adore these for their feet-baring qualities, which make them perfect for teaming with ballet pumps and ankle boots alike. Thornton says: “If the new denim hue is colour, colour, colour, then the new shape for spring is the crop. “The look is mid-rise, straight leg and ankle length.”

Whether you’re crazy about this season’s new shades or a denim traditionalist, it’s the fit that will stand the test of time. A flattering cut is even more important if you’re planning to work pale, bright or print jeans.

How to wear them Pair with a crisp shirt for a clean and modern look.

TOP TIPS

HOUSE LOVE THEM

Staple jeans aren’t something to splurge on without a serious test run. Jean sizes can vary between brands and stores, so hit the changing rooms.

Stiletto stripe jeans in Fire, £195, Donna Ida www.donnaida.com

Decide if you want to wear your new jeans with heels or flats (or both) and take them with you to get the length just right.

SUMMER STRIPES Hello instant leg lengtheners! Pyjamas are a big catwalk trend for spring/summer but stripy denim is the more wearable way to work stripes on the streets. “This season anything goes with stripes - contrast colours, thick stripes or pinstripes,” Thornton suggests. “The ‘pyjama look’ is the fashionista favourite, worn skinny and cropped for a fresh take on nautical.”

If you’re buying online, look to a site like www.sojeans.co.uk, which has a SoSelect application to find the best brands to suit your shape. Back pocket placement is all-important for flattering your behind, so check out those mirrors. Pockets set wide apart can add width. Pockets set close can create the illusion of a compact bum and pockets that tilt outward can create curves.

How to wear them Keep the look fresh and maritime-inspired with washed-out colours like creams, pale blues and faded reds.

Dylan jeans in Arrow, £255; www.donnaida.com

A bootcut hem can balance out big hips and thighs. Pair with towering platforms to create the illusion of supermodel pins. Opt for a Seventies-style crease if you want to draw attention away from your hips and lengthen your legs. If you have a petite or boyish shape, straight-leg jeans will give you a more defined outline.

BUY IT NOW Diana Vickers proves she’s still got the rock ‘n’ roll X Factor with her latest shoot for Very. “My inspiration came from the 1950s and early 1960s retro style,” she says. “I love all those oldfashioned vintage shapes - lots of quirky prints and bright colours.” Her latest spring/summer collection is available online at www.very.co.uk, priced from £29.

Mid to high-rise (measurement from waist to crotch) are usually the most flattering cuts for skinny jeans. Steer clear of low-rise where you can end up exposing your underwear.

? TANGERINE TANGO 2012 has been dubbed the year of Tangerine Tango colour by Pantone. Lisa Haynes reveals how to find the most flattering shades for your colourful year ahead.

Welcome to the year of Tangerine Tango. The global authority on colour, Pantone, has designated the reddish orange as its colour of the year in succession to Honeysuckle pink. The vibrant shade is now being touted as a go-to in cosmetics because of its versatility. It's exotic but in a friendly, non-threatening way, according to the Pantone colour gurus. But whether you dance to the tune of Tangerine Tango for your lips, nails or even eyes, it's clear the 2012 tone won't be for everyone. When refreshing your make-up bag for January, the key to finding your own colour of the year lies in your hair and complexion. "Understanding your colouring is the next step in helping you to achieve a perfect make-up look," explains Pat Henshaw, co-author of new book Colour Me Beautiful Make-up Manual. "The aim is to create balance and harmony between your natural colouring and the colours of clothes and make-up you wear." By wearing your own bespoke brand of make-up shades, Henshaw believes you will not only feel good but look younger, healthier and fitter.Here's how to discover your colour palette for 2012. Clinique Instant Lift for Brows in Soft Blonde, £13 Benefit BADgal brown mascara, £16.50

LIGHT

CLEAR

Your overall look is pale and delicate. The undertone of your colouring can be warm, with golden tints to your hair and a few freckles on your skin, or cool, with ash tones to your hair and a slight pinkish tint to your skin. Light celebrities: Uma Thurman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Meryl Streep. Make-up mantra: It’s all about adding subtle definition to your Light features. “Give a hint of colour to eyebrows and eyelashes - a warm brown mascara will be more flattering than black,” Henshaw advises. “Try not to overpower your delicate colouring with strong shades of eye shadow or lipstick, even when it comes to more glamorous make-up. Instead, use the right colours from your palette and apply them in different ways.” Palette: Medium grey, light navy, cocoa and taupe for neutrals. Pastel pink, geranium, sky blue and apple green for accents..

Your most outstanding features are your eyes, which are highlighted because of the contrast to your dark hair. They will have a clear, jewellike quality to them. Clear celebrities: Carla Bruni, Kate Middleton, Mila Kunis. Make-up mantra: Your eye make-up shades should always enhance and not detract from your eye colour. “As a Clear, you can have the choice of making a feature of your eye make-up or your lipstick but not both,” warns Henshaw. “Forget the rules about matching your eye shadow to your eye colour - it will only make your eyes blend in with your look and you really should make them pop. Bright colours are great during the day, whereas an aubergine pencil with purple eye shadow will be more glamorous for evenings.” Palette: Black, black brown, royal blue and soft white for neutrals. Blush pink, ruby, Chinese blue and evergreen for accents.

Urban Decay Naked Eyshadow Palette, £35 (Debenhams)


SOFT

DEEP

You may have found a little of yourself in each of the previous colouring types, but didn’t fit exactly. You have medium depth of skin tone, blonde to dark brown eyebrows and mousy blonde to light brown hair - often with highlights. Soft celebrities: Scarlett Johansson, Beyonce, Kim Cattrall. Make-up mantra: The gentle combination of your hair, skin and eyes means that your make-up needs to be soft and subtle but you still need colour and definition. Henshaw advises: “Your Soft colouring needs to be complemented with muted tones. Anything that is too bright or dark will detract from your face. “Your eyebrows should always be defined with a blonde eyebrow pencil, while your eyes need to be lined with soft browns or mossy shades, not black.” Palette: Rose brown, charcoal, charcoal blue and stone for neutrals. Claret, sage, soft violet and lavender for accents.

Your skin can be porcelain to black but all your features - hair, eyebrows, eyes and lashes - are dark and defined so your make-up should be similarly deep and rich in tone. Deep celebrities: Halle Berry, Penelope Cruz, Audrey Tautou. Makeup mantra: Your features have a lot of depth to them and stand out on their own. “Accentuate your look by complementing it with dark, rich colours, even when it comes to more subtle daytime looks,” Henshaw suggests. “Blushers will add some depth to balance your colouring. Lipsticks in rich shades will look fantastic on you. However, if you prefer softer colours, you will need to ensure that your face is balanced with strong make-up.” Palette: Black, aubergine, chocolate and pine for neutrals. Royal purple, scarlet, emerald green and true blue for accents.

WARM You’re the golden girl of complexions with skin tone ranging from porcelain with freckles to golden brown. Auburn hair tones go as light as strawberry blonde to dark rich red. Warm celebrities: Christina Hendricks, Susan Sarandon, Florence Welch. Make-up mantra: To enhance your warm and rich colouring, your make-up should always have yellow undertones. Henshaw advises: “Brown eye pencils and mascara flatter more than black for both day and night. “Choose a blush powder with a warm undertone and simply apply with a bit more depth depending on the time of day or occasion. Whether you want subtle lip colour or more dramatic lips, keep your lip colour warm with lovely, golden earthy tones.” Palette: Bronze, olive, pewter and camel for neutrals. Apricot, primrose, terracotta and lime for accents.

COOL You have blue, grey or cool brown eyes and ash tones to your hair, be it blonde, white, grey, salt and pepper, dark brown or black. Your colouring may have become cooler as you’ve aged. Cool celebrities: Jamie Lee Curtis, Dame Helen Mirren, Dame Judi Dench. Make-up mantra: Make the most of your distinctive colouring by wearing make-up colours with a cool or blue undertone. “Most cools have a striking look, so don’t be afraid to use brighter shades of lipstick and colours that will define your eyes,” says Henshaw. “Cool, blue-based tones of eye shadows, blush and lipstick will always look best on you regardless of what look you are trying to achieve. Take your barely-there make-up up a notch by defining the eye area and do so with grey, blue and lilac shades of eye shadows and eye pencils.” Palette: Charcoal, dark navy, spruce and purple for neutrals. Light teal, rose pink, cornflower and blue red for accents.
