Summer’s here! Well, it is as I write this anyway, how long it will last is anyone’s guess. And with bright Summer days in mind, we’ve picked out the hottest interior trend this year and featured some stunning neon brights interior goodies on page 36. I’ve also fallen in love this issue, the keener among you will know I’m a proud mother of two, but finding a stylish looking changing bag is nigh on impossible. That is until now, last week we got sent a couple of bags from OiOiBaby.co.uk and I’ve nabbed the

deliciously stylish brown leather bag! We’ve also got tips on what kind of eater you are, and interview with Emeli Sande, floral fashion, health and fitness tips from Spencer and much more, so enjoy the read, enjoy the weather (whilst it lasts) and I’ll see you in 2 weeks for the next issue of House. Until then... Emma Harman Editor

ARENA LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE TO BUILD ONLINE LINKS March has seen the launch of Arena Business Centres new website. Fresher and more interactive than before the site has been designed to harness the strength of the business community at both its centres in Poole and Ferndown. This will further build the online community that already exists on Linkedin where there is an active Arena Business Centre Companies Group. Here clients can network together to share ideas or look for help. The Arena team will be encouraging all clients, around 150 across both sites, to join the group so that they can get it working for them.

The team will also write press releases so whether it’s to post a special offer they can do for clients, a contract that’s just been won or a new recruit that’s joined the company. ‘We are looking forward to further strengthening the already vibrant community at Arena. Through maximising the power of social media we hope to further build the Arena network of companies. That way we can support our clients through more than just providing serviced office and studio space.’ Comments Sharron Domanska, Operations Director, Arena Business Centres.

“OH WE DO LIKE TO LET BESIDE THE SEASIDE...”!

Quay Living is delighted with the response to its new JACK FM radio campaign. Created by Partner, Duncan Challis and his 10 year-old daughter the 30-second advertisement is written to the tune of ‘Oh we do like to be beside the seaside...’. The words were penned in a light-hearted moment when father and daughter were sitting in a local cafe, and the catchy tune can now be heard several times each day, on JACK. Says Duncan “The radio advert conveys everything we do in a catchy and amusing way, and we are delighted to be working with JACK FM, the South’s most up and coming radio station.” The

most recent listener survey in the South has confirmed that JACK FM, which only took to the airwaves last July, has gained 29,000 more listeners, up from 103,000 listeners on average per week to 132,000! Their listeners are also listening for longer - an average of 7.7 hours per week. The demographic split also shows an increase in ABC1 listeners, now at 58%, which is great news for JACK FM and for clients, Quay Living. If you would like Quay to let your property by the seaside, give them a call on 01202 683444 or visit www. quayliving.co.uk.

THE MARKET’S ON THE UP The UK housing market showed signs of a seasonal recovery last month, with more ‘for sale boards converting to ‘sold. According to signs firm Agency Express, sales rose 42.9% month on month, and were 7.7% higher than February last year. New listings were up almost 19% on January, and 4% up on February last year. Stephen Watson, managing director of Agency Express, said: “Our figures for February show a very encouraging consolidation of the housing

market virtually nationwide. “A combination of relatively low interest rates, more affordable property prices and the stamp duty incentives preMarch for first-time buyers, coupled with the early mild weather, has obviously put the thought of moving house back into people’s minds.” Ben Jesty, partner at Winkworth Westbourne comments "We have been encouraged by the number of first time buyers registering with us in the first quarter of 2012 with numbers up

18% on the same quarter last year. In my opinion, the stamp duty break has certainly helped however, we are finding that confidence levels in all sectors of the market seem to be improving with numbers of sales being agreed consistently increasing each month. Although we are far from the market we experienced in the 2006 and 2007, we are pleased with the activity we have seen so far this year and are remaining positive that the spring market will continue to improve"

KEN PARKE PLANNING NEW TEAM MEMBER Ken and his team have been joined by Christine McNulty who takes on the role as an Associate Consultant. Christine is a chartered planner with extensive experience both within the public and private sectors at a senior and management level. Most recently Christine has worked as team leader and

GLASS ACT Get those jobs done with a little help from DIY guru Julia Gray

HOW-TO TIPS • When preparing to fit loft insulation, measure the distance between the floor joists and try to get insulation that's the same width to avoid having to do lots of cutting and fitting. • For irregularly spaced joists, awkward spaces and hard-toreach spots, insulation granules make life easier because you just pour them on (try Rockwool Rockfill Looselay loft insulation, £5, B&Q). You can also spread them over your current loft insulation to top it up, then you don't need to start from scratch.

This week: how to make big practical and aesthetic improvements by changing your home's windows, or just the glass. Changing your home's windows can make a big difference to how it looks. It can also affect how warm, noisy and light your home is, so there's more to it than just aesthetics. Window frames are made of three main materials: wood, UPVC and metal. You can also get composite frames, which are plastic or aluminium over a wooden core. Wooden windows look great and are the best choice for period properties, but they require the most upkeep. You often have to paint new wooden windows because they're supplied unpainted, and you'll have to keep on top of wood rot and chipped and flaking paint over the years, as well as completely repainting the frames from time to time. Metal, UPVC and composite windows require little maintenance in comparison, so they're an easier option, but they don't last forever. Past-their-best UPVC and metal windows aren't pretty, and the seals on double glazing can wear, so moisture gets between the panes. While modern versions of these windows are much more attractive, they, too, could look dated one day. When it comes to the glass, swapping single glazing for double or triple glazing can make a big difference to your energy bills. The older the windows are, the less energy efficient they're likely to be. Original sash windows, for example, are notoriously draughty, but it's possible to get doubleglazed UPVC or wooden sashes, so you have

26

both the traditional look and the mod cons. You can also get all sorts of specialist glazing, even self-cleaning glass, which is perfect for hard-to-reach windows. If you live in a listed building, changing the windows can be an expensive and complicated business. You may need listed building consent from your local council's conservation office and you'll probably have to replace the windows on a like-for-like basis, so the appearance of the building isn't changed. Councils are also concerned about the appearance of buildings on 'designated land', which includes conservation areas and areas of outstanding natural beauty. If you live in one of these, ask the council about what you can and can't do when it comes to changing your home's windows. Also, you may need the freeholder's permission to alter the windows if your home's leasehold, so check the terms of the lease. All new windows must comply with building regulations, which are especially concerned with replacement glazing and how energy efficient it is, as well as ventilation, safety, means of escape in the event of a fire, etc. You can fit the windows yourself, or get a builder to do it, but the work will have to be inspected by your local council's building control department, who'll charge a fee. As long as the windows comply, they'll provide you with a completion certificate, which you may need when you sell your home. Alternatively, you can get the windows fitted by an installer registered with a competent-person scheme, such as FENSA or Certass. This is usually an easier option because they'll ensure their work complies with building regulations and will provide the completion certificate.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK For reviving rusty metal, there's a quick and easy answer - Hammerite Direct to Rust Metal Paint, from £7.98 for 250ml. This, as the name says, can be applied straight to rusty metal, without treating, priming and undercoating it first, so it's a great time-saver. It's corrosion resistant (for up to eight years), can be used indoors and out, comes in three finishes - smooth, hammered and satin - and lots of different colours (depending on the finish) and can be used on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, as well as wood and certain plastics. You just remove loose rust with a wire brush or wire wool, clean off the metal and apply the paint. I found that Satin White needed more coats than Smooth Black to cover the rust, but that's usual with pale colours. This is a great product for jazzing up railings, gates, guttering, planters and garden furniture when the weather gets warmer.

SIMON CLARKE WAVE 105 FM Getting By With A Little Help From Our Friends

HOUSE SPECIAL

2 SUITS DRY CLEANED

ONLY £9.99!

It has been a running joke for a while within my circle of friends that I am a bit of a girl. “Too many x’s and not enough Y’s”. I have never been very passionate about football, I don’t understand a great deal about how my car works and I would rather be in the kitchen than down the pub. And I am the only man in the group who happily took a career break to raise his children. However, I do have one trait that makes me very male indeed the inability to ask for help. Men are rubbish at asking for help. The obvious stereotype is asking for directions. Before the age of satellite navigation we would rather blunder around getting lost than admit we don’t know where we are going. Even now, I’m sure that men only allow sat-nav’s on the premise that we tell it where we want to go rather than ask it how to get there. This is, of course, all down to our conditioning as children. Traditionally men are taught to feel that asking for help is a sign of weakness. If you need help, you are a wimp. I offered to help a man in a farm shop the other day. He was struggling with a few carrier bags and a two-yearold who had decided they didn’t want to walk. I had been in that situation before and so offered to take the bags, picking them up before he had chance to decline. As I set them down by the side of his car he thanked me but, at no point, did we make eye contact. He had the grace to accept my help and as a mark of respect I did not damage his masculinity by forcing him to acknowledge that in that situation, he needed it. The man is the provider, must carry the responsibility for his family on his shoulders and be able to deal with any problem that life sends his way. We are taught to believe that if we fall short of that then we are a failure. We need to “suck it up” and try to deal with whatever problem comes along, be it at work, in a marriage or building some furniture. But I think the sign of a real man is taking a deep breath, defying the stereotype and asking your friends for help. You will probably be surprised at the response you get.

NEW ERA FOR HUNTERS LODGE

HAMWORTHY HAMWORTHY ASKING PRICE PRICE £212,500 £212,500 ASKING

Steeped in History, dating back to the Georgian period, Hunters Lodge in Ringwood has enjoyed various guises from its origins as a private home, conversion to a school, used as an officers mess during the war, to more recently a restaurant and landmark public house. This week sees the launch of Hunters Lodge’s new era as a sophisticated development of 6 distinctive Victorian style homes. Designed and built by award winning Zelda investments, this courtyard development of 2,3,4 and 5 bedroom contemporary homes has been carefully arranged to provide a sense of privacy and intimacy. Within this, each individual unit has an identity of its own whilst still retaining a sense of coherence and consistency as a whole. Interesting features such as large bay windows, open plan living areas, bi-fold glass doors to gardens and underfloor heating, combined with high specification Porcelenosa kitchens and bathrooms assist in giving each property a contemporary reinterpretation of a traditional form. Floor plans have been thoughtfully designed for maximum efficiency, making best use of daylight aiming for Code of Sustainable Homes compliance with the incorporation of such features as home offices. Located just a five minute walk from the popular town centre of historic Ringwood, the show home will be holding an open day on 31 March, call Charles Powell estate agents on 01794322999 to book your appointment.

SPRING CLEAN It’s the first day of spring on March 21 and time to do that annual spruce indoors and out.

There comes a time when you can no longer sweep that dirt under the carpet. The sunshine pouring in through the windows shows up the smears, and there's a level of dust that only Miss Havisham could live with. In other words, with the first day of spring looming on March 21, it's time to face that annual ritual known as the spring clean. But there's no need to despair if you don't have Upstairs Downstairs-style staff to scrub and slave. BBC news presenter Joanna Gosling has unlocked the secret of stress-free cleaning, and shows how to cut the time it takes in half in her new book Simply Wonderwoman. "Over the years I've discovered some tricks that are so easy that I wanted to share, because like any working mother I know what it's like to have too much to do and not enough time to cram it all in," says Gosling, who has three daughters, aged nine to three, with her husband Craig Oliver, who is David Cameron's chief of communications. It's a busy household but her cosy home has an air of calm and order, with one kitchen wall painted in blackboard paint as an easy 'organiser' space, a string washing line with painted pegs holding party invitations and children's colourful art work, and a larder boasting neat rows of glass jars and containers. "I realised a long time ago that we may all want to be that wonderwoman - baking, home-making, a perfect wife and mother, and possibly doing all that on top of working. But the reality is no one can really embody everything we imagine her to be”. "So we need to think smart and my mantra about housework is 'minimum effort, maximum return'. Over the years, I've loved the eureka moment of discovering a great corner-cutting method or a tip that really works."Gosling is happy to share her super spring clean strategy guaranteed to put the sparkle back into your home with the least effort. Simples! CLEAN SWEEP "Break the task into bite-sized chunks and just focus on one room at a time," says Gosling. "And always start at the top and work down so you don't dirty already cleaned areas." Get a long-handled duster (or wrap a microfibre cloth around the bristles of a broom) and

sweep along the top of walls and around any cornices to get rid of dust and cobwebs. "Get the vacuum cleaner and set suction to low so you can clean over curtains, the tops of doors, sofas, chairs, cushions and skirting boards. Pull out furniture to make sure you get rid of dust lurking behind," says Gosling. Get a damp cloth and a dry microfibre cloth. Take everything off all surfaces (only do one area at a time) and wipe over with the damp cloth to clean away dust. Rinse out cloth and repeat to ensure surface is clean. Buff dry with microfibre cloth. Do the same to all objects before they go back. There's no need to use cleaning products as the wet wipe and dry microfibre cleans and shines everything - including silver picture frames! Top kit: Microfibre pack of four cloths, £1.99, and storage boxes to kill clutter, from £2.99 each, Dunelm Mill; Bissell Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner 70955, £7.86, Amazon. MAKE IT SHINE Clean mirrors and picture glass, as well as TV and computer screens, with the same damp cloth and dry microfibre cloth, before finishing with windows. "Do keep rinsing your cleaning cloth, or replace it if it gets dirty or ragged," advises Gosling. "Likewise, have a spare microfibre to hand if it gets too damp." Clean off any stubborn marks on paintwork with a little scouring cream and wash away thoroughly with a clean, damp cloth. Now vacuum the floor. If you have rugs, take them outside and shake. If you have hard floors, vacuum or sweep, then clean. If you have carpet, use a cleaning spray on any dirty marks and then vacuum on full suction power. Top kit: Make light work of floors with a machine washable Spin Mop, £23.54, with a rotating head and pedal action on the bucket to squeeze it out, from QVC; clean floors and refresh carpets using water with a lightweight Steam-Glide Steam Mop machine, £79.95, available from April from Oreck. Colourful kit could lift your spirits as you toil, so use a roomy Mesh Storage Basket in fuchsia, £25, and rainbow-coloured Playnation ironing board, £50, and peg bag, £8, all from John Lewis. Sainsbury's has a Downton Abbeystyle cream enamel Tu Coastal Housekeeper's Box, £15, to keep all the household equipment together.

MAKE A SPLASH Bathrooms should always shine, especially as they're often the first room we see in the morning. "It's easy to get rid of unsightly mildew or mould. Just paint bleach on any mildewed areas using an old toothbrush," advises Gosling. "Leave for around three hours while bleach kills the mildew off. Before rinsing bleach away, scrub a bit of the mildew with the toothbrush to check it will come away easily. If not, leave longer, otherwise wipe away bleach with a disposable cloth and then clean with plenty of water. Dry thoroughly." To get super shiny taps, Gosling suggests mixing the juice of half a lemon with a teaspoon of bicarb. "Apply solution with a toothbrush so you get in all the nooks and crannies. Rinse with water, buff dry with a microfibre cloth and taps will sparkle." Get the kit: Scrub Free shower cleaner, £4.99, removes soap scum and grime and Clean Shower, £4.99, claims to remove the need for cleaning if it's sprayed in a fine mist after each shower. Blitz dingy grout with a SonicScrubber, £14.99. All from Lakeland. KITCHEN BLITZ Shiny clean floors and surfaces are essential in the room that's the heart of the home. "Bring a floor back to its best by doing a 'hands and knees' clean to remove ingrained dirt that mops just don't touch," urges Gosling. Sweep the floor first, then in a bowl mix up a solution of a juice of half a lemon, one cup of white vinegar and one cup of warm water. Get another bowl of warm water and a couple of cloths. Wring the cloth out well so it is slightly damp then put it in the lemon and vinegar solution, squeeze out excess and get scrubbing. If you have a wooden floor, add two teaspoons of olive oil to the mix. Alternate the cleaning cloths, leave the dirty one to soak in the bowl while you use the other. Get the kit: Roll up your sleeves and invest in retro-style cleaning tools from Baileys Home & Garden such as a scrubbing brush, £4.50, and Olive Oil soap, £4.25. New brooms sweep clean, according to the old saying, and Lily & Brown's retro-style collection includes a broom, £7.19, as well as Bassine handbrush and dustpan, £5.99, all from Harris Victory. Or go for a pink Pantry Design scrubbing brush, £3.95, from the Dotcomgiftshop. 65

OiOi CHANGING BAGS Having a baby is hard enough, but carting around all the necessary equipment on a daily basis is quite another thing. You’ve got bottles, wipes, changing mat, change of clothes, snacks and the list goes on. Sadly, the choice of bags with enough compartments for all this stuff is pretty awful, usually hideous looking things that no stylish mum would be seen dead with. Thankfully, OiOi has come to the rescue in the form of this stunning brown leather bag. It has everything you need to keep bottles warm and store nappies etc, but manages to pass itself off as the kind of bag that doesn’t shout ‘I’m a frumpy old mumsy’.Super stylish, chic and useful, we love OiOi bags, go and buy one now. www.oioibaby.co.uk 01202 788368 72

Your online library of entertainment is hosted by Toshiba’s Places and App Connect gives you lots of additional pieces of TV-viewing pleasure. The bachelor pad styling of this all-black set might have more limited appeal to the more decor-conscious buyer, however.

The amazing picture quality of this Sony TV sets it apart from the rest even before we discuss the smart side of things. The Motionflow technology gives a really smooth view of fast-action sports and films. This set connects via built-in Wi-Fi and delivers the full range of internet on to your box.

HAPPY EATER What sort of eater are you?

There are so many emotions surrounding food, guilt and worry mainly. Instead, says author Karen Knowler, people should eat to suit their personality. From the Confused Eater to the Emotional Eater, her new book Eat Right For Your Personality Type reveals how to make your diet suit you. There's nothing like food to inspire strong feelings in all of us, whether we're drooling over a 'naughty' treat, firmly cutting the carbs, or berating ourselves for a previous indulgence. Similarly, it can be infuriating and baffling to someone who finds all food irresistible to witness the selfdiscipline of someone else who never seems to struggle with dieting and virtually measures every mouthful for its purity. In reality, it all comes down to our food 'personality', according to Karen Knowler, author of a new book called Eat Right For Your Personality Type. "Each of us has an individual way of thinking, feeling and acting around food for a whole host of reasons," says Knowler. "But each of us also has a core 'style' of eating or food personality to which we conform. "So while some people are passionate about food, others use their intellect to govern their food choices and like to be told what is 'right' to eat, and another type may use food to make them feel better about problems in their life." Recognising which type we are, she argues, helps us understand not only how we relate to food but also how we can organise our diet and eating patterns so we feel healthier and, if necessary, slim more successfully. "We shouldn't underestimate the importance of this because food has tremendous power to affect the quality of our health, our energy levels, and radically affect our appearance," she says. "But above all, most of us crave a peaceful relationship with food. The majority of us don't want to be told what to eat, and we hate struggling with incessant food guilt and worry. "If we can see why we eat as we do, we can choose to work with that, or even try to adopt some of the characteristics of a different type of eater which appeals to us." Knowler reveals a plateful of possibilities and out of the ten food personalities, she's chosen five of the most common. Discover which food personality matches you and find out how to eat to suit it.

1 THE EMOTIONAL EATER The Emotional Eater is usually not a happy person around food because they’re frequently in a state of angst about what they’re eating. “These types tend to ‘yo-yo’ diet and swing between ‘treating’ themselves and ‘punishing’ themselves depending on what is going on in their life, and food is usually the main way they do this,” says Knowler.

Their eating heaven: Staying disciplined about their eating for more than a week which gives them a temporary morale boost.

2

If you’re looking to lose weight, list 10 different non-edible treats that you know will ‘fill you up’ or reward you emotionally. These could include a long, hot, pampering bath or a treat outing. Whenever you find yourself wanting to eat when you’re not hungry, pick one of these treats and enjoy as much as is good for you instead of raiding the fridge or larder. Create or find a menu plan which will keep you happy and full, and one incorporating healthy versions of the comfort foods you are used to reaching for. Try to recognise that you’re probably using food to remedy other problems in your life which it can never do.

THE SENSUAL EATER

TIPS:

Sensual Eaters are generally passionate about many things, and food is one of them. “This type love to engage with what they eat and drink in a deeper and richer way than most people,” says Knowler. “When they’re eating, they feel as if they are doing more than simply that - it’s more of an experience, something that enhances their life. “Even if they feel conflicted about what they are eating and know that it may not be good for their health or waistline, they still enjoy being seduced by it. “For them, eating’s all about pleasure and feeling indulged and they love cooking for others which they feel is a way of expressing caring and love.”

Create or find a menu plan which excites you, where everything on your menu feels like a 10/10, including foods and drinks which you consider treats or long-time favourites. Then aim to find a low-fat form or something healthier than you are used to, but which can be just as delicious. Find substitute sensual ways to reward and indulge yourself, which are non-edible, so your impulsive passion for food is less likely to wreck your diet.

Their eating heaven: Strawberries dipped in chocolate in one hand, a glass of champagne in the other.

86

TIPS:


THE EXPERIMENTAL EATER

3

Experimental eaters love the adventure of eating."They're never happier than when they're trying something new, so they can tick something off their list, plus they get to tell the tale!" says Knowler. "They're social, gregarious, and see life as a vast smorgasbord of adventure and possibility and food is a key part of that. They love eating out, and the more bizarre or quirky the menu the better.

"They aren't so bothered about cooking for themselves, but are reasonably happy to cook for others so they can share the experience different tastes." Their eating heaven: Travelling and enjoying native dishes and learning culinary secrets in their own country or abroad.

Tips:

THE FUNCTIONAL EATER Functional Eaters don't dislike food or eating, but you could be forgiven for thinking that they do! "It's not necessarily their priority that everything they eat is the best or the most delicious possible, although they'd rather it was. They're just not always that choosy!" says Knowler. "They just want to eat and they want to eat now, so that they can get on with life and do what they consider to be far more important things. "For the Functional Eater, it is all about speed and convenience, and they'll rarely host dinners for friends as they'll find the cooking and preparations stressful and boring."

Their eating heaven:

TIPS: List all the foods you want to eat and where to get them (ideally pre-prepared) so you're not tempted by fast foods or bad choices. Create or find a menu plan that's quick, easy and delicious to follow, incorporating those pre-made foods and drinks wherever possible. Work out other meals that are simple to pull together in 10 minutes or less to make dieting effortless. Ensure you incorporate variety, because your diet can tend to become unimaginative and routine as it relies heavily on ready-made meals.

Boredom is your enemy and if you get stuck in a food rut because of lack of time or opportunity you'll become unhappy, so stereotypical diet plans are not for you. Map out an eating plan which incorporates weird, wonderful, spicy or decadent tastes but try to identify the other highcalorie ingredients and minimise those either in quantity or limit portion size. You may be happier eating little and often with small, tasty meals which delight your taste buds, and it will help you to look at what your body needs to be healthy, instead of being ruled by your quest for new flavours. Explore healthy smoothies, snacks and raw foods which will satisfy your need to experiment with flavours without piling on the pounds.

4

A fridge full of delicious pre-prepared foods, or even better, a personal chef to serve it up so they can grab it and go.

4

TIPS:

THE INTELLECTUAL EATER

You dislike confusion and uncertainty, and need to be convinced about everything. Clarify things by listing 10 compelling reasons which really speak to you about why you want to eat more healthily or lose weight. Create or find a menu plan which makes sense to you, be it caloriespecific, nutritionally sound or whatever criteria works for you, but take on board that occasional treats or deviations don't spell long-term disaster. Recognise that eating should also be a pleasure, and that you won't necessarily derive benefit from foods you force yourself to eat just because they are 'right' for your diet. Pleasing your taste buds isn't a sin and widening your diet could help relax you.

For the Intellectual Eater, tasty food is great, but having it make sense and comply with their idea of the 'correct' way to eat is much more important. "They need to feel not only that they're eating in the best way possible nutritionally, but also to understand fully how and why this is so," explains Knowler. "You'll often find the Intellectual Eater reading a nutritional textbook or scientific-based food book. "To them, eating for pleasure is seen as insane behaviour. They're uneasy about eating out as it makes it harder for them to control ingredients."

Their eating heaven: Menus mapped out to contain essential nutrients, and discovering a new superfood or nutritional alternative which they can boast about.

BMMVTOPX 116

House columnist and local PR guru Liz Lean talks about Springtime I simply love spring! Looking across Poole Harbour from our offices, that special, warm light is making the water more inviting and you get the feeling that balmy summer days are finally on their way. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering how much inspiration it must be giving to our artist client, Kathryn Thomas as she works on a collection ready for her exhibition in early May. I celebrate the fact that Dorset has attracted a successful city-based artist from Bristol where her Poole Quay studio has become a catalyst for some of her most exciting work yet. There is so much going on underground in the art world here, I am hoping that the likes of Kathryn will help bring more quality art to the surface. An oil painter, Kathrynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s linen canvases extend to over 2 metres in width so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dramatic pieces, full of colour but very serene. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to see the new collection. Easter last year was a roaster if I recall. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope we get a repeat performance as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming up fast. Easter weekend and the school holidays have so much going on across Bournemouth and Poole, the Easter bunny is going to have to work hard to get some attention! Beales has launched a stunning new homewares and gifts department in the lower ground floor of the Bournemouth store. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some seriously nice things and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re beautifully presented; quite a transformation. To celebrate, they are closing the road adjacent to host a barbecue on Saturday April 7 between 12 noon and 4pm with free food, drinks and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping to see Bealesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top boss Tony Brown there, sporting his apron and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;throwing a few snags on the barbieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;! If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stuck for something to do with the children on Easter Monday, take them to the Sandbanks Hotel, one of the rebranded â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;FJB Collectionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hotels, for a Wizard of Oz themed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Follow The Yellow Brick Roadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; event hosted by their brilliant Funsters entertainment team. Tickets need to be bought in advance but for ÂŁ5 there is live music, face painting, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities, creative competitions and even a mini farm featuring Easter chicks, fluffy bunnies, pigs and lambs on the beach terrace. There are great prizes for the best Wizard of Oz fancy dress so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be fetching those red Dorothy shoes out of the loft! Check out www.sandbankshotel.co.uk or telephone 01202 707377 for tickets. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to take this opportunity to welcome Philippa Thompson as the Sandbanks Hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new general manager. She comes with a fine pedigree, straight from Champneysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Forest Mere, so yet another lady of high calibre attracted to Dorsetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shores. My own fine ladies in the LLPR office have been getting crafty with the ribbon and scissors this month, pulling together media packs for Hoburneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s centenary. Our meeting room became a factory as the now published centenary book â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;100 Years of Happy Holidaysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (yours for only ÂŁ12.99 now available at www.hoburne.com), was sent in stunning packaging to impress national and regional editors far and wide. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been excited by the response as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve landed on journalistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; desks and have attracted media interest from Cornwall up to Liverpool. They receive â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stuffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; every day - well perhaps less than they used to - but they are usually pretty spoilt. Especially travel writers. For us to have feedback that it is one of the most impressive media packs they have ever received, we know we have done our job. Happy days! Well done team. You deserve a blatant plug of your own. My lovely, loyal, lean and lively, long-suffering Lisa Illingworth has also been a trouper this very day - climbing atop the roof of The Green Room restaurant within Bournemouthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Green House Hotel to photograph their new residents. Bees. Firstly, photographing bees is pretty tricky. Secondly, photographing them on a fourth storey roof requires some kind of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;extra mileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; badge. The honey will be used in the restaurant and the hotel, enhancing their focused environmental offering. And how impressive to offer their own honey to any visiting hay-fever sufferers this summer? Local honey is meant to ease symptoms considerably so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bound to earn them brownie points. Birds and bees and longer evenings. Spring is definitely in the air, and I say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bring it onâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;! Make the most of the moment. 1

IN CONVERSATION... EMELI SANDE Brits Critics' Choice Award Winning Solo Artist

Since her performance on Professor Green's No 1 hit Read All About It, all eyes have been on Emeli Sande. As she prepares for her own solo tour and the release of debut album Our Version Of Events, the Brits Critics' Choice winner tells all to Andy Welch.

146

I walked into Topshop before Christmas and Heaven was playing. It was such a cool feeling...

With a big soulful voice, emotional songs, and the Brits Critics’ Choice award already under her belt, there’s already an eerie familiarity to Emeli Sande’s career. Add in the fact her first name is actually Adele, and the picture becomes much clearer. “I decided I had to change it and use my middle name,” begins Sande, smiling, fully aware of how comparisons with the 2011’s big-voiced juggernaut might be stacking up. In truth, the Aberdeenshire singer’s music is quite different to that of the Someone Like You diva, with bigger orchestrations owing far more to R ‘n’ B and soul than the contents of 19 and 21. Sande started writing songs aged seven, and while there’s no danger she’ll begin performing her childhood back catalogue, she says, her first effort was still good enough to be plagiarised. “It was about an alien coming to earth looking for love, and it wasn’t very good. It didn’t have much structure,” she says. “My friends formed a girl group for this talent show and they sang my song. I was in the audience and thought, ‘I recognise that!’ That was my first lesson in copywriting, anyway. “The crowd seemed to like it, and they had a dance routine

and everything. It was flattering I suppose, and we’re all still friends now, so I like to tease them about that.” A few years later, after nagging her parents to buy her a piano, Sande taught herself to play, inspired by a lasting love of Nina Simone, and began taking music and songwriting more seriously.

“The first song I wrote that I can listen to without cringing came when I was about 14 or 15. That was quite experimental, I think, as I was really into jazz at that point.”

She also performed whenever she could, at school events and local concerts, all the time dreaming and trying to work out how she could turn her passion into a career. Despite having her mind set on music, Sande, who finally

made her big breakthrough while featuring on Professor Green’s No 1 single Read All About It late last year, knew the odds were stacked against her becoming a successful solo artist. That’s not a slight on her talent, but statistically, most people don’t go on to sell millions of albums. Sande ploughed on with academia, and now, after three years of a medicine degree, she’s a qualified neurologist. “I’m so happy I took time to study,” she explains. “It was the first time I’d been away from home and I learned a lot about myself, let alone the subject. I feel a lot more in control now that I have a degree. It meant that music wasn’t the be-all and end-all, so that takes some pressure off. “There was a point at university where I was leaning towards a career in medicine, mainly because I didn’t see a way into the music industry. I was losing hope, but it was never an actual, complete decision,” she continues. “If I’d have made that decision, I wouldn’t have come down to London.” Sande never worked as a professional neurologist, rather did three years at medical school, then a year specialising in neuroscience, before coming down south after graduating. “I still have about 18 months [of education] left if I want to become a doctor,” she explains. “Dr Sande - I like the sound of that It would look cool on the album cover.” While living in London, she didn’t have much luck getting her own career off the ground. She won a competition run by BBC radio DJ Trevor Nelson, although turned down the contest’s prize, a recording contract, preferring to do things herself. Other record labels weren’t so interested, unwilling to take a chance on a fully formed, young female singer whose career they couldn’t shape. It always pays to have more than one string to a bow, though, and even if there was no joy with the solo career, various record labels fell for Sande’s songs. She quickly became an in-demand writer (Simon Cowell says Sande is his favourite songwriter) penning hits for the likes of Leona Lewis, Cheryl Cole, Cher Lloyd, Susan Boyle and Tinie Tempah some of the biggest-selling artists in the UK. Sande laughs at the suggestion she only sells songs to artists who shift millions of records, countering the accusation with the fact she’s currently working with an unknown band called Saving Grace. “And I don’t ‘sell’ songs, as such,” she adds. “I give them to people. I love the reinterpretation, and the fact someone can change a lyric to mean something I’d never thought about or intended. “The first time I heard someone singing a song of mine was Cheryl Cole, who sang Boys. Leona Lewis did another around that time, too. “Some people think it might be odd writing for other people, but I haven’t felt like that. There’s no one who’s sung a song of mine that I haven’t respected, and no one who made me think they didn’t understand what the song was about.” Sande’s own album, Our Version Of Events, is


OUT NOW

released on February 13, and features No 2 single Heaven, which is reminiscent of Massive Attack’s classic Unfinished Sympathy, her follow up Daddy, which reached No 20 in the charts, and the forthcoming single Next To Me, which caught Madonna’s attention when Sande performed it in front of her on Graham Norton’s chat show recently. “That was a strange night,” she says. “We chatted briefly, she said she liked the song and my voice, and I shook her hand. Very memorable, but surreal. “There have been quite a few surreal things happening lately, though,” she adds. “I walked into Topshop before Christmas and Heaven was playing. It was such a cool feeling, thinking that it’s not just on the radio anymore, but that it’d actually filtered into people’s everyday lives.” As early reviews of Sande’s album roll in, all largely positive, anticipation begins to grow. Add into that the Brit award she’s already won - the Critics’ Choice gong is traditionally announced two months before the actual event in February - and a lesser person might begin to buckle. It’s hard to imagine the young Scot ever struggling with issues with self-confidence though, so it’s perhaps no shock to discover she’s taking it all in her stride. “I definitely knew I’d release an album,” she says. “But I didn’t think there’d be this much anticipation, or acknowledgement of what I was doing. “That said, I’m happy people are talking about the album so much. I love getting the attention, because I have experienced the other side of that, when no one cares. “I also love that my album is expected to be good. It’s a huge compliment.”

EXTRA TIME... • Adele Emeli Sande was born on May 20, 1987, in Alford, Aberdeenshire. • She studied three years of medicine at the University Of Glasgow. • At the age of 15, Choice FM invited Sande to London to take part in a competition they were holding called 'Rapology'. • In 2008, Sande sent a tape to BBC 1Xtra, which was played by DJ Ras Kwame. She was then invited down to London to perform at a showcase and her songs and came to the attention of record labels. • Sande is engaged to her long-term boyfriend, but won't identify him at his request, saying only that he works as a scientist, not in the record industry.

South Coast Dental Specialists

Specialists in smile creation

“Your teeth fixed in a day” At South Coast Dental Specialists we are now able to secure fixed teeth onto implants placed into your jawbone all within 3-4 hours from start to finish. Whether you have a few remaining teeth and are struggling with your partial dentures or indeed in you have full dentures and find them difficult, we can help you have fixed teeth in one day. The technique can also be applied to both the upper and lower jaws, and can even be carried out in both jaws in the same day. In addition the procedure is painless and can be carried out under sedation for our more nervous patients, and post operative discomfort is kept to a minimum with simple painkillers. Over the last year or so we have worked closely with the experienced Waters Edge ceramics to develop predictable and accurate techniques which are proving a huge hit with the patients we are providing

BEFORE

this treatment for. After a short period of consultation, we plan your treatment very carefully and give you a written estimate of charges. Assuming all goes well with the consultation and examination process (usually just two short visits ) we then book you in for implant placement and at the same time our technician is on hand to construct your new teeth. The teeth provided on day one we term as provisional teeth, as soft tissue changes and technical constraints prevent us from securing on your final teeth from day one. However, only 2 or 3 short painless visits are required 4 months after your initial “teeth in a day“ appointment, for us to construct your final definitive teeth.

FANCIFUL FLORAL SPRING FASHION

MUTED FLORALS For wallflowers who prefer the shade rather than garish brights, there are pared-down prints. In either muted, darker shades or wishywashy watercolours, these are the florals that look fragrantly seductive rather than assaulting your eyeballs. Watercolour prints look blooming marvellous in pastels that will tick off two of this season's biggest trends in one go. Spriggy prints or miniature buds will look elegant on a darker base - stick to dark blues, greys or blacks. If coloured prints are still too saccharine sweet for you, follow your nose to this season's monochrome florals for a Chanel-style black and white twist.

This spring, florals are bigger than ever. Lisa Haynes reveals how to work some flower power into your wardrobe.

A spring season is never in full bloom until florals start to emerge on the high street rails.

But this year designers must have sprinkled some potent fertiliser on their catwalk creations because flower power is bigger than ever. Headto-toe summer meadow-inspired looks pack a punch, while clashing floral prints flourish together. Expect a mixed bouquet this spring, from 3D embellishment to spriggy prints. It's time to pick your perfect flower arrangement.

EMBELLISHED BUDS

COLOUR BOOST

Sniffable, no. Touchable, yes. Florals just got interesting with the new crop of textured clothing. Designers Louis Vuitton and Christopher Kane set the 3D trend with frocks featuring applique blooms, and the high street has followed suit with embellishment aplenty. Some of these florals are so lifelike they'll float in a summer breeze just like real petals. For a chic look, ensure that the 3D 'buds' are the same colour as your top or dress. Bear in mind that all-over texture can make things look bigger so avoid if you're conscious of increasing your bust or bottom area.

Shoppers turn to bright clothes when they're feeling blue, with 50% splashing out on red items to boost their mood. A recent survey by George at Asda revealed 68% of shoppers spend up to £20 on clothes to cheer themselves up. Fiona Lambert, George brand director, says: "In challenging times people purchase bright colours across both fashion and beauty to lift their spirits. Customers have told us they want to be bold and steer away from the 'safe' option of black." George has launched a range of coloured denim jeans, from £10, available now in stores and online at www.george.com Primark Limited Editon floral print blazer, £25 www.primark.co.uk

Marks & Spencer Per Una floral dress, £75 www.marksandspencer.com TOMS Corbel floral wedges, £59 www.toms.co.uk

BOLD BLOOMS

If you're going wild for florals this season, then bright eye-catching blooms are the nonweedy way to work them. This spring, bold prints have undergone a tropical makeover with vivid flowers that look like they've been freshly plucked from the Bahamas - perfect for a holiday wardrobe. For more of an English country garden feel, choose prints with a white backdrop for a fresher take. Alternatively, set on black, your vibrant florals will have a modern, darker edge that's ideal for nighttime glamour. Feeling bold with your blooms? Experiment by clashing two opposing floral prints together. Just pick out the same petal colour in each pattern to ensure your crosspollination print technique is a hit.

Coast Marua floral embellished dress, £195 www.coast-stores.com

ACCENT PETALS You don't have to work an all-over print to embrace this season's floral obsession. Think cut flowers and foliage that decorates just the trim of a top, dress or pair of trousers for a subtle flirtation. Think of your hourglass body as the elegant vase and the florals peeping out, a delicate arrangement. You can also avoid the head-to-toe bouquet look with a floral separate teamed with block colour. Whether you prefer your top or bottom half, wear your print on the area you wish to accentuate. A small spriggy print will add an air of retro glamour to boyish figures, while curvy shapes should seek bolder prints to balance out proportions.

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring

BRAKE WARNING

New research just released by Kwik Fit reveals that almost three quarters of motorists (73%) don’t regularly check their brakes for wear. This is in stark contrast to the attention that owners pay to their car’s appearance – nearly two thirds (65%) of motorists carry out car care activities such as washing or vacuuming at least once a month. Half of British motorists (48%) say they don’t check their brakes because they don’t know how to, but for one quarter of the nation’s drivers there is no excuse – they say they know how but just don’t bother. Only nine million of Britain’s 33 million drivers say they regularly inspect their brakes. These findings indicate that there are up to 22.6 million cars on Britain’s roads which are not having regular brake checks, says Kwik Fit. Women appear to be more blasé about their car’s ability to stop than men, with only one in five female drivers (21%) checking their brakes regularly, compared to a third of men (34%). Those in East Anglia are the least likely to perform regular brake checks, and they are also least likely to wash or vacuum their car each month. They are followed by Welsh motorists and those in the South East. Drivers in the East and West Midlands and the South West are relatively diligent when it comes to checking their brakes, compared to the rest of the motoring population. Cars in the South West are most likely to look their best, with 71% of owners giving them some attention at least once a month. Roger Griggs, communications director at Kwik Fit, said: “Along with its tyres, a car’s brakes are the most important system in keeping a car safe on the road. However, it seems that for many cars, the only time they will be checked is during the annual MOT and service.

RENAULT ANNOUNCES NEW MEGANE Renault has revealed UK prices for the new Megane range, which goes on sale on April 1st, priced from £16,275. Highlights are: • New contemporary look for all three variants, including LED daytime running lights (Dynamique TomTom and above), gloss black finish to bumper with chrome highlights, and new selection of alloy wheels. Coupé also gains chrome trims on the air intakes (Dynamique TomTom and above). • New entry-level Expression+ sees inclusion of Bluetoot, USB connection and upgraded audio system to 4 x 20W radio CD with fingertip remote control and AUX input, on top of already high equipment level: 16” alloys, air conditioning and front fog lights • Top-of-the-range GT-Line TomTom adds auto parking brake with Hill Start Assist, parking camera with rear parking sensors, Arkamys 3D Sound 4 x 35W audio system – worth £760, but list price only £270 greater (dCi 160). • Other additions as seen on the recently facelifted Scénic since January 2012 include new options: Visio System by Renault (lane departure warning and automatic high/low beam headlight function). • Engines: three new power trains appear in Mégane 2012 – all with Stop & Start.

• 1.2 TCe 115 petrol, 1.5 dCi 110 and 1.6 dCi 130 – boasting impressive performance, economy and emission figures. 1.2 TCe 115 offers diesel-rivalling 53.3 mpg (combined cycle) and 119g/km CO2, 1.5 dCi 110 gives offers class-leading 80.7 mpg and emits only 90 g/km CO2- the lowest of any C-segment diesel on sale today. 1.6 dCi 130, the world’s most powerful and frugal diesel engine of its size, provides 70.6 mpg and 104 g/km CO2. 1.4 TCe 130 and 2.0 TCe 180 removed from the range. • Driving and travelling comfort have been further enhanced by the addition of new features which come as standard equipment. Hill Start Assist prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards when pulling away on a slope, while lane change indicators warn other motorists when the driver is about to change lanes by flashing three times following a simple flick of the indicator stalk. • To assist parking manoeuvres, a rear parking cameraprovides a precise image of the vehicle’s immediate surroundings and depicts its trajectory to help drivers adjust their line. Last but not least, the dual-zone automatic climate control is now equipped with a quality sensor which monitors cabin air quality and automatically activates the air-recycling mode whenever necessary.

A CHAT WITH THE HEAD IAIN ROBERTSON BUCKHOLME TOWERS B FACTOR HAS THE WOW FACTOR! The Buckholme Towers B Factor charity concert has become legendary (within our 4 walls!) during the last few years. ‘B Factor’ is a talent show for pupils (and some teachers!) across the age range. It always produces some outstanding and memorable performances and this year was no exception. Year on year the line up grows as it becomes more and more difficult to ‘reject’ acts that have been rehearsing, often for months in advance. Children as young as seven years old, sang, danced and played instruments in front of the 150 strong audience that were shoe-horned into the Parkstone United Reformed Church. Even I was persuaded to dust off my sax and join in the fun!

The Sherbet Fleas, a band comprising six 8 and 9 year olds, opened the evening, with their rendition of The Pixies ‘Where is my mind?’ From that point on we knew we were in for a real treat. There were many highlights throughout the evening but I think what was most rewarding and what made me most proud was not just the quality of the performances, but the enthusiasm and confidence with which everyone performed; it wasn’t just the audience that had a fantastic evening, the pupils did too. As for the fundraising, you may have read in The Echo about an incident that occurred at Le Cruz Restaurant a few months ago, whereby money raised for Help for Heroes was stolen from the bar. We have a great relationship with the restaurant as they provide delicious home made lunches for our pupils and for this reason we decided to make it our chosen charity for this year’s B Factor. The final total raised over £500 for Help for Heros. Everyone was a winner! TO CLOSE, YOUR 11+ MATHS TEASER: David and Jane share their money in the ratio 4:3. David’s share was £12 which was the larger amount. How much was Jane’s share? And the solution to our last teaser: How many thousandths must be added to 4.206 to make 5?

ASK THE EXPERT SPENCER CUCKNEY

EASTER SPECIAL GET READY FOR SUMMER Arasys weight Loss machine Normally £35

Is there such thing as too much protein? Yes you can eat too much protein but you are going to have to go some in order to do so. With consumption of small lean animals like rabbits, pheasants etc where there isn’t much fat you can get protein toxicity if that is all you eat 24/7. Red meats are also acidic. However, in a standard British diet we don’t eat anywhere enough good quality protein such as grass fed beef, fresh water wild fish and free range chickens. We still are a carbohydrate saturated nation because it is cheap and easy and good for big business. Ideally have 40% protein, 30% high fibre carbs such as greens and 30% good fats such as avocado, flax seeds, olive oil, salmon etc. To balance out acidic foods eat plenty of dark green leafy veg.

I keep reading so many different things about BMI, fat % and ideal weight but I’m not sure what to focus on? Body fat is the key not BMI or weight - for women to be lean aim for around 24% and for men 10% body fat.

I train 6 days a week, a combination of cardio and weights in the gym but I’m finding myself exhausted at most sessions. Am I overdoing it or is it just boredom setting in? With training, to get optimium results, you need to focus on intensity as opposed to volume and frequency. So a 40 minute high intensity interval training session 3 times per week is more than adequate for improved cardio function, low body fat levels, improved immune function, raised energy levels etc. But remember:

What It Involves – Becky the salon’s director, sat me down and actually asked me what It thought of my hair, and how I would like her to proceed in making it look less like a hay stack. Such a change from just being told what I should do with it! Together, we decided A reshape and highlights were the way forward, and at Becky’s suggestion I should tone down my mane with some low lights. Becky used a variety of Bumble & Bumble products including their Smoothing Cream before snipping away expertly at my locks.
