JON BODEN & THE REMNANT KINGS Jon Boden, former front man of progressive folk eleven- piece Bellowhead, brings his Afterglow tour to Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts on 23 November. Afterglow is Boden’s first studio release since calling an end to Bellowhead, a 12-year project that culminated in a quarter of a million album sales and worldwide sell-out shows including the Royal Albert Hall. It also marks the reformation of the amazing Remnant Kings – a band that hasn’t performed together since 2012. Featuring the talents of former Bellowhead bandmates Sam Sweeney and Paul Sartin, plus Leveret’s Rob Harbron and Ben Nicholls and Richard Warren (King of the South Seas), the band will be joined by a string and brass section to celebrate the launch of the new album Afterglow. Across his career Boden has been awarded a recordbreaking 12 BBC Folk Awards, earned through his work with Bellowhead and Spiers & Boden. Now touring as both a solo artist and with his band The Remnant Kings, Jon will perform in both incarnations again this autumn

MAYOR OF CHRISTCHURCH OFFICIALLY OPENS MONTEREY, PLATINUM SKIES’ NEW RETIREMENT DEVELOPMENT On Thursday 21st September, the Mayor of Christchurch Councillor Nick Geary officially opened Monterey, Platinum Skies’ new retirement development, planting a Monterey sapling, the development’s namesake, to commemorate the opening. Located in the grounds of the newly revamped Christchurch Hospital, Monterey is part of a unique joint venture between Platinum Skies and The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals Foundation Trust. The development offers 35 one and two bedroom retirement apartments, exclusively for the over 55s. Earlier this year a new care home, Fairmile Grange, and the transformed hospital were opened – creating the country’s first health hub.

All homes are available through Platinum Skies’ unique part-buy, part-rent scheme, which gives retirees a unique solution to access more capital in their retirement*. Quality healthcare will be immediately accessible for all Monterey residents, with a new GP surgery and pharmacy on site. Personalised care and support is available, as and when it is required by residents on a pay-as-you-use basis. The first residents are due to move into Monterey over the coming weeks. Prices start from £140,000 for a 50% share of a one bedroom home (FMV - £280,000)

The team cycled 1,500km over four days – the equivalent distance from the Savills office in Canford Cliffs to their office in St Tropez. Savills Canford Cliffs would like to thank everyone the support.

BREATH TAKING SEA AND MARINA VIEWS UNIQUE LANDMARK DEVELOPMENT A unique landmark development, a truly exceptional location and fabulous views, are just a few features of Moriconium Quay. Moriconium Quay comprises 105 units, a mixture of apartments and town houses, gradually built around a marina which was created in the early 1990’s. This private gated development is unique in its appearance, set around a marina with manicured grounds and block paved walkways, giving a flavour of the Mediterranean within the heart of Dorset. Offered for sale is, in Edwards opinion, one of the very finest units, offering simply breath-taking views over the marina to the Purbeck Hills and Arne Reserve beyond. This exceptional penthouse apartment was extensively re-modelled in 2012,

PATHS OF LIGHT EXHIBITION BY IRINA SONG Irina Song is presenting her Paths of Light exhibition at the Courtyard, Town Mill, Lyme Regis, from 10th to the 29th November. Irina tells us that, “My oil paintings will take viewer on a wonderful journey across magical world of brilliant colour, glistering light and divine inspiration. Each painting has its story behind, being born on the top of a cliff, on a beach or in deep valley of Dorset hills, where I used to walk to gain an inspiration. Blazing light and colours meet together in my paintings and create an impression of living melody or singing colours. “My acrylic paintings are rich in texture and every dancing brushstroke creates sense of joy and freedom. I love to paint outside, spending hours gazing at the view, its like breathing in the atmosphere of surrounding beauty and breathing out images full of positive feelings producing even therapeutic and emotional impact on a viewer.”

SAXE COBURG RAISE AWARENESS FOR THE POPPY APPEAL It’s almost that time of year where we will don the red poppy of Remembrance. To help raise awareness, funding and continue the story of Remembrance, Saxe Coburg in Canford Cliffs, is embarking on a Poppy Appeal campaign of their own. The company started their Poppy Appeal drive in 2016 and after huge success have decided to make it an annual initiative. Saxe Coburg has teamed up with Mercedes-Benz in Poole, the Royal British Legion and local artist Sally Mackness to make it all happen. “The 11th of November is about remembering those fallen in WW1 and WW2, in addition to individuals and families who have been affected in conflict and crisis since. Help us give something back to the Armed Forces

community who risk their lives for our nation.” says CEO Maximillian de Kment. Saxe Coburg has also branded a Mercedes SL 500 with an eye-catching poppy design to help promote the message of ‘lest we forget.’ The Dorset Royal British Legion are launching their “Silent Soldier” concept alongside Saxe Coburg’s campaign. This is whereby imagery and ‘art’ pop up in random places around the county to remind us of the forthcoming day. We hope you’ll help to show your support by popping into the Saxe Coburg office to pick up your poppy and wear it with pride. Office address: 24 Haven Road, Canford Cliffs, Poole, BH13 7LP.

Do you aspire to live on a private estate – a heritage landmark steeped in history – midst tranquil and beautifully landscaped grounds. Then Stapehill Abbey is the place to be... Step back in time and experience the solitude once exclusive to past monastic inhabitants – a truly unique environment and lifestyle to be enjoyed by a privileged few! Edwards Estate Agents are proud to be working in conjunction with renowned local developers Ankers and Rawlings in promoting what can only be described a prestigious development and restoration project within a private estate of just forty seven homes. Stapehill Abbey nestles in its own grounds between Ferndown and Wimborne. Just far enough from the main road network to enjoy tranquillity and seclusion, yet within easy reach of local amenities, transport links and the

world renowned Jurassic Coastline and the New Forest National Park. Set within a significant landscape setting, great care and attention has been given to the overall site design to maximise the kerb appeal and the unique lifestyle created in this quiet enclave. Ever mindful of the significance of heritage, reclaimed materials will be used wherever possible to blend seamlessly with the existing structures– in total a selection of 29 new build homes offering a mix between two and five bedrooms. The extensive grounds will offer a peaceful haven of established planting, historic landscaped gardens and a tranquil lake – to be enjoyed by the residents at their leisure – to reflect upon their exclusive privilege of owning a part of this unique and cherished lifestyle.

Stratton Oak was started to keep in line with the ever-changing estate agency world. So many high street agents stick to the same format they have been doing for the last 20 years and times have definitely changed. With 16 years customer facing sales and marketing experience on a national level, followed by a further 5 years working for a high street estate agent the MD would like to think he is competent in listening to what the consumer wants. By working closely with many clients over the last 5 years it became very apparent that they all wanted different levels of services and it became very frustrating to only be able to put them all in standard square box. Stratton Oak gives the consumer the choice and will tailor a package to best suit your situation, needs and budget. Now whenever you think of budget and a service being a lower cost you instantly think there will be a drop-in service levels

ASK THE EXPERT ABOUT...

DECLUTTERING BEFORE MOVING Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage Steve has many years’ experience in the moving and storage industry. He offers the following advice about the importance of decluttering your home before you move. Steve says: “Why pay to move things which you will just discard once you arrive at your new home.”

Irina Song PRESENTS THE...

Paths of Light Exhibition at Courtyard, Town Mill, Lyme Regis 10th - 29th November 2017, 10:30am - 5:00pm

Here are a few tips for helping you to declutter and organise your house before you move: • Ask yourself ‘do I need or want it?’ If the answer is ‘no’ now is the time to get rid of it! • Get rid of presents that you hate and will never use; sell them or donate to charity. • Furniture could be sold or donated to charity. • If you have not worn clothing in over a year, don’t waste time moving it. • Sort through your paperwork and discard or shred anything that you really don’t need; Maidmans offer a shredding service. • Clear out your shed, attic and garage in good time. • Make sure you dispose of chemicals, old paint pots, and any flammable liquids responsibly. Steve says: “Remember that removal companies will base their price on the volume of possessions that need moving as well as the distance. The more possessions you have, the greater the removal cost.”

The one song I hear in the air is the song of love, sung by the majestic beauty all around me. Every time I look up to the sky, I find myself enthralled by the forever changing beauty that is never the same, each time a new palette of colours; the play of light and composition of clouds decorate the sky with brilliance. Art can be very personal; it is an expression of something far deeper than the art itself.

TALKING BUSINESS

HOLIDAY PROPERTY INSURANCE BEWARE THE SPECIAL TERMS I am always discussing insurance with both existing owners and first time renters as it’s crucial to have the right cover. It seems that insurance for holiday letting is particularly prone to big variations in price but as ever the real danger is in the small print; the cost of missing a special clause could be huge in the event of a claim. So what are the particular issues for insuring a holiday property?

not covered by public liability the costs will be large. Damage by guests - You’d think this would be one of the central points of holiday cottage insurance but it can be excluded. Beware the small print - clauses to watch out for:

‘Malicious’ damage by guests - If you have a clause excluding this it’s a grey area - what is malicious? You may find a broken door or furniture not covered.

Finally I always prefer to deal with a broker who does a lot of holiday insurance rather than a call centre. It may be a little more expensive but it’s worth it to get the right advice and support if you need to make a claim.

Things you won’t be covered for:

Employer’s liability - Do you employ a cleaner directly, if so you may be liable if they have an accident and it won’t be considered a ‘public’ liability.

Unoccupancy Clause - This can vary widely and I have seen some that would be almost impossible to comply with. Typically it may say that if the property is empty for more than a set period- normally 30-60 days then special terms apply. This could be weekly inspections, maintaining a certain temperature or even draining down the water system. Check carefully as poor policies may have a 7 or 14 day limit. It’s also possible that cover may be withdrawn for some things during periods of unoccupancy.

Loss of rent cover - If you have a flood in August you could end up losing several weeks or more at your highest tariff which is very painful if you are not covered.

Excess - Obvious but a cheap quote may be produced on the back of a high excess meaning you could be responsible for the first £500 or more of a claim.

Legal protection - Always worth having as it generally costs very little extra. You’re unlikely to need it but if you do get sued for something

Special excesses - The headline excess may be reasonable but further in the small print a higher one may apply in some circumstances. £1,000

Public liability - At least £2 million cover and often more is included. This is essential as the current environment seems to be that every accident is somebody’s fault and guests who have a fall will often rush to a claims lawyer.

Subsidence is normal but look out for extra excess for ‘escape of water’ or accidental damage.

Damage by dogs or other pets Everyone seems to exclude this nowadays so be aware that you will be footing the bill if you have an irresponsible dog owner. Fences, gates etc - Very pertinent given the recent weather, we lose quite a few and generally not covered.

Simon Tolson

Contents left in the open - If somebody pinches your garden furniture or anything else left out you won’t be able to claim. Previous history of flooding - Don’t think that because an insurance company has taken your money that you are covered. They won’t bother investigating unless there is a claim so if you are buying a new house find out if it has ever been flooded and make sure you can get cover before committing to the purchase.

With demolition nearly complete, the construction of just 8 bespoke apartments is underway. These homes will be completed to the highest specification and finish; this married with the enviable views they’ll boast is already making these apartments sought after, with current enquiries being taken.

These homes which are in walking distance of several bars and restaurants situated along the coastal road running between Barton and New Milton, will be ready for occupation Summer 2018.

Through a gated entrance, this development comprises a mix of sizeable, two and three bedroom apartments, with spacious living accommodation, balconies, an internal elevator, private parking and landscaped garden areas. The Development Name ‘Strollers Reach’ has been derived from the famous pony Stroller, who was the first and only, Olympic medal-winning, Show Jumping Pony, and is now laid to rest at the Barton-On-Sea Golf Club which this prestigious development overlooks. Stroller, a Bay Gelding standing at 14.1h.h, was raised on a local farm and went on to have an explosive 15 year championship 64

This plot was originally purchased in 2016 after AJ Developments were in competition with a number of larger developers, however their approach was personable, professional and honest, which, after receiving feedback from the previous owners, was what won AJ the plot.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

SPICE HOME IMPROVEMENTS Modern living and working has changed drastically over the last twenty years. A lot of people are working from home; our offspring are sticking around longer and we’re always “too busy” for something. The underlying issues? A lack of time and a growing ‘now culture’. With all this in mind, it’s no wonder we look for new ways to outspread our homes, but the fact is an extension can be costly both in money and time. So, in the hopes of unveiling the next greatest development in home improvement, we spoke to the experts. We sat down with Paul, Stuart and Olly of Spice Home Improvements to discuss the latest and greatest.

The Garden Room The answer to your need for extra space; these state-of-the-art Garden Rooms provide the comfort and quality of an extension, without the colossal cost and waste of your precious time. So, we asked the questions you’re dying to know: Q: What is a Garden Room? Olly: “There are two categories: ‘Composite’ and ‘Bespoke’. The Composite are those with a range of pre-determined dimensions and features made from recycled plastic and bamboo, ideal for someone looking for a super quick turnaround. Then we have the bespoke option,

made entirely to your unique specifications, within the relevant building regulations. These structures are water-tight, fully insulated and fit with all the bells and whistles – perfect for all kinds of use: home office, storage, playroom, gym and additional entertaining space – you name it. Q: What planning is required for a Garden Room? Stuart: “Absolutely nothing. That’s the beauty of these amazing structures. Due to their nature and the way in which they are built, planning permission is not required. In the rare case that the land or wildlife surrounding it requires special permittance (e.g. tree conservation regulations) then we would consult with the relevant authorities. Every step of the project is handled by our expert team, all you have to do is tell us how you want the finished product to look”. Q: How long does the average build take? Paul: “The structures themselves take little time at all. Ultimately it all depends on the foundations. Once we (if we even need to) have dug out, leveled and prepared the perfect base – which by the way we handle for you – the buildings then take a maximum of a week to erect, often merely a few days”.

66

Q: With the bespoke option, how much can I customise? Olly: Everything. The type of doors and windows, the lighting, the electric points, the colours, finishes – it’s yours for the making.


HOME IMPROVEMENTS

Conservatory Roof Replacement Conservatories have been a go-to for homeowners, desperately seeking more space and a little connection to the beautiful outdoors. The problem however, is that the typical glass and polycarbonate roof can’t handle the average British weather – in the summer they’re too hot and in the winter it’s just too cold. In an effort to make your conservatories better insulated and more efficient, Spice Home Improvements offer a ‘Conservatory Roof Replacement’ service. Q: What are you replacing the old roofs with? Paul: “We retain the original structure (from the top of the window frame down) and swap the old roof with a fully insulated state-of-the-art replacement system fully compliant with Building Regulations for your peace of mind. Made from a lightweight, durable material and finished in your choice of composite tiles and colours, fully insulated with completely new guttering and fascia”. Q: WOW, looking at the examples it really changes the look… Stuart: “Absolutely, it becomes a room you can actually use again. Fully plastered ceiling and in the past we have even up-scaled the interiors with skylights, fitted new electrics and special design features including external lighting. We have had clients use them as an open plan kitchen/ dining space, playrooms, living areas – all sorts of things”.

Q: What are the benefits of replacing your conservatory roof? Olly: “Most importantly, you are regaining the use of that space all year round – whatever the weather you maintain control of the temperature with the security of it’s fully insulated barrier. On the same note, with new more efficient insulation it will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. It is 100% waterproof and built with durable materials, meaning little to no maintenance is required with over a 40-year plus life expectancy. Finally the transformation that this roof gives will make your conservatory an entirely new space, adding further value to your home”. Spice Home Improvements are allencompassing home improvers, who cover everything from garden rooms, conservatory roof replacements, extensions, composite decking and resin driveways. With a “nothing is impossible” attitude and their years of combined experience – as well as their trusted trader status – you can rest assure you are being looked after by the best of the best.

It is hoped that there will be lots more opportunities for the local school to get involved with community events at Great Oaks.

G

reat Oaks, the brand new Encore care home in Bournemouth, had a very special Time Capsule event with the children from Kinson Primary School

THE COMPETITION Great Oaks, the residential, nursing and dementia care home, teamed up with Kinson Primary School and offered the children the chance to put their winning competition entries into a time capsule, which is to be buried in the garden at Great Oaks for 100 years. The competition asked the pupils to write about their favourite memory with a grandparent, older relative or friend of the family. The teachers chose the best six entries and the winners attended the care home for an exclusive tour. THE TOUR Ms Bryan, Headteacher and Ms Lawson accompanied the children as they took a tour and learned about care homes. The winners of the competition were Ellie Ashby (year 3), Oli Hayward (year 2), Tia Dixon (year 6), Lucy Curtis (year 3), Cleo Rawlings (year 3) and Anisah Begum (year 6).

The winners were also joined by two reporters for the school paper. They had a tour of the salon, the spa bathroom and had a look at what a resident’s en suite bedroom looks like. Each child took turns on the adjustable bed to see how it can be effortlessly raised and lowered to make residents more comfortable. THE TIME CAPSULE After a tour of the home, the children met the Deputy Mayor of Bournemouth, Cllr Eddie Coope, and Day Breaks resident, Ron Gadsby. The Pupils read out their winning stories about their favourite memories with grandparents and placed them into the time capsule. The children were each given book tokens as a thank you for sharing their wonderful memories. Activities Manager, Sue Goktas, put forward articles, books, photos and memories from the residents of Great Oaks and care team members, who also wanted to contribute items for the time capsule. Ron presented a beautiful song that he wrote for his late wife, Catherine and placed the musical composition in the time capsule to be preserved.

Great Oaks is situated in a peaceful, private woodland setting in Bournemouth. It is the third residential, nursing and dementia care home in the South of England from Encore, which specialises in modern, purpose-built, private care homes. The growing family of homes includes Fairmile Grange in Christchurch, which opened in partnership with the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Encore’s Hamble Heights in Fareham opened its doors in 2013 and has since achieved several awards; one of which was Best Activities Coordinator for the South West in the 2016 Great British Care Awards.

TALKING BUSINESS

A Q&A WITH;

HARBOURWOOD HOMES History in the making It all started with an idea. Owners ‘Steve Courtney’ and Dean Gaffikin had shown an aptitude for the construction industry from a young age. Having both attended the same engineering apprenticeship at a local college, it was destined that the two would go onto great things together. After studying they each set up their own respective companies. Steve a successful carpentry business, and Dean an equally successful plumbing firm. But fate brought them back together, after they were both brought in on the same job one summer. After many conversations Dean and Steve set up Harbourwood Homes and quickly undertook their first development. Two years later, we’re here with Dean Gaffikin talking about their incredibly exciting business and what makes them so unique.

74

Q: You both come from a trade background, that’s quite rare within the development world… Absolutely. I ran a plumbing business for 7 years. That experience – as well as Steve’s within his own carpentry business – has authenticated our approach to development. Having that inside

knowledge allows us to shape projects more efficiently and get it right the first time. Q: What excites you about the development industry? I really enjoy seeing a project go from nothing to this amazing finished product and I love to help landowners. The way we work, everyone wins. They get a premium for their land, and we get a site to develop, and furthermore more property for the community. Of course it’s always nice to get permission granted too. It’s really a testament to our team’s skill and attention to detail, when submitting planning and we often get the desired results first time. Q: What are your priorities when it comes to a project? Aside from planning, it has to be design. We’ve just started working with our neighbors over at Anders Roberts Cheer architects, because design is so important to us. We don’t want to just churn out ‘box houses’, so we work with the best in the business to make exciting and unique properties.

Q: Are you working to address any of the current issues in today’s property market? We don’t have a target audience as such. Though a pattern that seems to be emerging is a need for homes for young working families. Many of the late baby boomers were left out of the property race, leaving many of them still in rented accommodation, for lack of suitable available property. We’ve also noticed a real rise in the retired community selling their land and buying new property. A lot of people have worked hard all their life and aspire to live in something shiny and new. Ultimately, we are open to all opportunities. Q: What benefits would you offer to someone for selling his or her land to you? We are incredibly open. There is a kind of grey cloud surrounding developers – with this idea that we’re all a bit devious, but we like to be honest and as transparent as possible. Where we are a small business, without huge overheads, we can generally offer that little more and with our existing backlog of tradesman from our other businesses, we don’t have to contract any work out to a third party.


TALKING BUSINESS

Q: …and likewise for investors? We are able to significantly reduce build costs while maintaining quality, due to our previous experience and contacts, in turn making more profit and a greater return for the investor. Again, we are totally transparent, so what we say will happen will happen – nothing is hidden. We regularly meet with our investors, so that everyone is kept in the loop regarding progress on site.

The Salts is an exclusive development of two luxury four bed detached houses situated in a unique part of Hordle village. For more inforation contact: Mitchells Estate Agents on 01425 616411 or Hayward Fox on 01425 638656

We are an expanding company so there are always new opportunities arising, with new planning applications being submitted all the time. With sites in up and coming areas including Hordle and Ferndown, Harbourwood Homes are blazing a trail with their trustworthy and dedicated approach to property development. If Dean’s engaging interview has grabbed your attention then send your queries over to dean.gaffikin@harbourwoodhomes.co.uk or give them a call on: 07590 983276.

PARTNERS IN LUXURY

Tetra reveals the ultimate in quality bespoke craftsmanship born from a collaboration between Jigsaw Interior Architecture and Amirez Developments The last time I met with Matt, Shan and the Jigsaw Interior Architecture team was at the unveiling of their stunning show home on the riverside of Wick Lane; a property that subsequently reached the final shortlist, from hundreds of applicants, for the What House Awards in the Best Luxury House Category. Today I was on beautiful Evening Hill to meet with the team again to view their latest development. At the end of a secluded, private driveway, I saw Tetra, one of three spectacular four bedroom contemporary town houses completed this October by Amirez and designed by award winning architects Anders Roberts Cheer. Providing the ultimate in luxury living, Tetra has an essentially monochromatic colour palette, with a contemporary façade which contrasts exterior finishes of natural stone, smooth crisp render, matte

black window frames and grey timber cladding in an arresting geometric, textural contrast. The stylish interior is the result of a longstanding and proven collaboration between Amirez and Jigsaw Interior Architecture, a dream design partnership which marries bespoke design with supreme build quality. This duo’s portfolio is a perfect example of form and function working in harmony at the very highest level. Having had the opportunity to walk through the three houses it was no surprise to hear that house one, Hedra, was sold off plan in the early stages of the build process, with the lucky and excited owners almost ready to move into their new home. In Tetra and Dodeca the versatile accommodation is arranged over four floors, each with a terrace and serviced

by a lift (finished in opulent dark taupe leather), and from the sun room at the top, through the master bedroom on the second floor to the first floor’s kitchen/ living/dining space all are blessed with spectacular views over Poole Harbour, the Sandbanks peninsula, Brownsea Island and the Purbeck Hills beyond. Natasha Stynes, Jigsaw’s lead Interior Architectural Designer on the project, knew that when working with Amirez there would be no compromise when it came to design concepts or with the quality of materials available to her; she relished this opportunity to freely realise an entirely bespoke and exceptionally finished scheme. Similarly, through Jigsaw’s involvement right at the early planning stages, Amirez were confident that they would deliver a property in which the future home owner could enjoy an optimised layout affording them a sense of spaciousness, comfort and luxury.

80

It is this union of aesthetics with enjoyment of use through considered design, which sets Tetra apart from other more ‘off the shelf’ counterparts.


TALKING BUSINESS

Feature lighting from Flos is complimented by Jigsaw’s own recessed lighting design features in the kitchens and on the staircases. Ultimately it is the combination of an assured build quality from Amirez, with Jigsaw’s meticulous eye for detail that has created an outstanding property, which although inherently luxurious is also fresh and playful too. Viewings of Tetra and Dodeca by appointment only through Luxury and Prestige or Key Drummond.

Certain interior architectural elements are featured throughout the three properties in the development, such as the bespoke, black oiled oak doors with vertical, linear detail, Italian kitchens, designer tiling imported from Spain and Philippe Starck brassware in the bathrooms; yet each home has additionally been designed with individual finishes giving each its own personality and style. The overall look has a distinctly monochromatic feel, yet remains warm and inviting, with chic blackened oak treads on the staircases juxtaposed with the crispness of the plastered walls. In the bathrooms, glamorous ebony and white marble tiling is given a funky twist in herringbone patterns with the contrasting colourways used to create a stylish, scattered graphic effect. In the Italian kitchens, luxurious natural granite and marble worktops in richly veined Bianco Eclipse and Arabescato sit in solid, chunky, sleek slabs against dark grey handleless cabinetry. In Tetra this natural stone also mixes with the warmth of oak, arced and cantilevered to create a stunning, floating breakfast bar, made by Simon Thomas Pirie.

WHAT YOU NEED TO SEE AND DO WHILE YOU’RE IN...

WASHINGTON, DC It’s been blasted all over TV screens for the past two years, but there’s more to America’s capital than Mr Trump, says Susan Griffin.

white dome of the Capitol dominating the skyline at one end, and the Lincoln Memorial - with its statue of Abraham Lincoln - at the other.

Think of Washington DC and most people automatically picture the White House or Capitol building, but there’s more to do in this elegant city than simply posing for your selfie outside these iconic landmarks.

I happily spend the morning museumhopping before wandering along to the Washington Monument, an obelisk stretching over 500ft, past the fountains of the National World War II Memorial and onto the Reflecting Pool, which will be familiar if you’ve watched Forrest Gump.

That said, I still find myself jostling for space to grab a snap in front of both, but then America’s capital is made for sightseeing. Blighted by violence in the past, the city’s undergone a clean-up in recent years and I feel perfectly safe ambling around. It’s a metropolis that welcomes walking with a grid system of wide roads - running across in numbers and down in letters - making it easy to navigate.

122

Thanks to jet lag, I find myself in the National Mall bright and early. The park runs along downtown DC with the

You can hop on the Metro, but walking makes me feel less guilty for chomping my way through the city, which has become a real foodie’s mecca. It even has its own Michelin Guide now, although there are plenty of cheap bites to find too.

TRAVEL

RIGHT: Capitol Building, Washington DC (Picture credit: PA Photo/thinkstockphotos)

Where to eat You can’t visit Washington DC and not stop-off for a Chili Half-Smoke (a pork and beef sausage, topped with onions and chilli sauce, priced $5.95/£4.50) at the Ben’s Chili Bowl (benschilibowl. com) on U Street. The bustling diner might not be glamorous, but customers have included the likes of Dr Martin Luther King and Ella Fitzgerald. Even Barack Obama dropped by shortly before he was inaugurated. In the shadow of the Capitol, you’ll find the stylish Charlie Palmer Steak (charliepalmer.com/charlie-palmersteak-dc). Tuck into the Iced Shellfish Platter with its lobster tail and oysters ($39/£30 per person) and follow it up with a 28-Day Dry-Aged Steak ($49/£38). If you’re lucky, the general manager, Michael Irving, might take you to the terrace, which is normally reserved for private functions, to take in the incredible views. Where to drink You can’t go too wrong if you head to 14th street, which is lined with unpretentious bars and restaurants, attracting a young and stylish crowd.

If you’re something of a wine buff, make a beeline for Barcelona Wine Bar (barcelonawinebar.com), which offers 40 different wines by the glass. The Old Ebbitt Grill (ebbitt.com) is a stone’s throw from the White House and, dating back to 1856, billed as ‘the oldest saloon in Washington’. It’s vast, but the booths and dark decor give it a cosy, intimate feel. For the best views of the crowd - a lively mix of tourists and workers - take a pew at the bar. Beers from $6 (about £4.60), cocktails from $10.99 (about £8.50). And don’t forget your passport, as you’ll be asked for ID when ordering alcohol, however old you are. What to do Visitors are spoilt for choice where museums are concerned, but the one everyone’s talking about is the National Museum Of African American History & Culture (nmaahc.si.edu), which Obama opened last September. Collections housed in the striking building are broken down into culture, community and history galleries. A highlight has to be Muhammad Ali’s gown, gloves and bag. Entrance is free, but booking a time slot might mean avoiding the queues.

ABOVE: Washington Monument (Picture credit: PA Photo/thinkstockphotos)

As remarkable as the Capitol is on the outside, it’s well worth booking one of the free tours at the Visitor’s Centre (visitthecapitol.gov), which is open between 8.30am and 4.30pm. The stunning Rotunda of the Capitol merits the neck-ache you’ll suffer from trying to take it all in. The National Statuary Hall - with its sculptures of notable American figures - is remarkable, and there’s also the option to watch Congress in session. Really, it’s a mystery why Washington isn’t more popular as a city break. It combines a sense of space with the cosmopolitan options you’d expect to find in New York. Then again, it means there’s more space for the rest of us to soak up everything DC has to offer. How to get there Return flights from London Heathrow to Washington-Dulles with Virgin Atlantic (virginatlantic.com) cost from £932 per person. Visit capitalregionusa.co.uk for more information.

HOW TO CREATE YOUR VERY OWN BOUTIQUE HOTEL ROOM The new ‘it’ look for boudoirs There’s something to be said for the excitement of staying in a hotel. The fluffy pillows, crisp cotton sheets, access to miniature beverages and overpriced confectionary. Whatever it is, it’s a great feeling shutting the world out in a luxurious room. So, why not have a piece of the action in your own home? Well, we researched exactly how to replicate, turning to some of the best hotels in the world, along with some top interior designers, for advice.

Oversized headboards Whilst there are plenty of other trinkets and extras to write home about, the bed is the truly the main feature of any hotel room and the headboard is the lure of said feature. For a little while headboards became tiresome, but they are back and bigger than ever. Higher than ever, headboards are even as tall as the wall itself, but for a more modest at home look, go for roughly a third of the wall it backs onto. You want to make a statement, so don’t be afraid to opt for a contrasting colour or plush fabric. RIGHT: Sienna Grey Bed Side Table, £299. Available from www.featherandblack.com

Bedside Tables Don’t underestimate the importance of the bedside table as a decorative element. Whilst it does serve the practical purpose of storage, the bedside table shouldn’t be an afterthought and nor should how you dress it, be. Adorn your bedside table with stacked books, candles and trinkets – remember less is more, so be creative but don’t go overboard. ABOVE: The Flow medium side table with plinth, £550.

INTERIORS

Bedding The pinnacle moment of every great hotel stay (for me at least) is the first time you sink into a freshly made bed, it’s like unwrapping a gift. Despite the countless people who have stayed before me, I am always thrilled to peel back the layers of bedding and dive in and for a particularly luxurious feel there’s nothing quite like a thread-rich cotton cover. No matter the room’s theme or colour scheme, always opt for bright white bedding; particularly thread counts of 600 and above.

Pillows When my partner and I went bedroom shopping (he loves home ware trips) I became obsessed with the idea of plump – sink your face into – pillows. Personally, for a luxurious hotel feel, I love the squishiness and crackle of the duck feather, but I understand some people have reservations towards it, so there are some fantastic ‘feels like down’ polyester alternatives on the market that feel just as sumptuous. Whatever you opt for, ensure it is full with stuffing and super soft. This is definitely not an online purchase; pillows must be tried before buy-ed, well, bought. RIGHT: ‘Lisbon’ Throw, £30; ‘Clara’ Oxford Pillowcase, £15; Linen Room Cable Knit Throw, £25; ‘Volcanic’ Mirrored Lamp Table, £180; ‘Logan’ rug, £230; ‘Erika’ Lamp Table, £199. Available from www.harvey-norman.co.uk

Lighting When staying away you want to be at your most relaxed and lighting has an enormous part to play in that feeling. Second to the door, the light switch is usually the first thing you reach for when entering a room. It usually takes around three on and offs before figure out which button works which light; you have your main light, your bedside light, the mood light and so on and so forth. Your bedroom lighting should follow suit, ideally a main light that floods the entire room, a light either side of the bed for ‘his and her’ options and some form of low level lighting for a moody effect. What style of lamp/ shade you decide on is dependent on the overall theme of the room, but the trick is to follow this rule; only one can be the focal point. For example, if you have on oversized chandelier, your bedside lamps should be smaller. Last lighting tip; opt for warm colored bulbs instead of bright white. Whilst the bright white is great for bright open spaces, your boutique hotel room should be atmospheric and cozy.

All the senses In addition to lighting, smell can also influence our enjoyment of a room. Be sure to grace the room with plenty of scented candles and reed diffusers. Rich, musky scents such as sandalwood, white musk, cedar and jasmine do well to create an opulent aroma. Whichever brand you opt for, look for these scent notes.

Finishing touches Depending on how committed (and willing to maintain the standards) you might be will effect how few or many little extras you decide to put in your room. For an easy, low maintenance option, toweling robes are a must – what hotel stay would be complete without them? Have them on display or hung from the back of a door, the rope tied into a bow. Another great little idea is getting your hands on an ornate French press coffee maker. Pop it on a tray along with some china cups and flowers and you have a great little hotel-esque touch.

HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN SEASIDE GARDEN

Has the distant memory of summer holidays prompted you to create your own seaside garden ready for next summer? Here’s what to do and the plants which should thrive. Going on holiday to the coast may fuel dreams of a life by the seaside but creating a seaside garden needs careful thought, bearing in mind the salt spray, strong winds and dry soil. Here are a few ideas to get you started on your dream garden by the sea.

1 

CREATE A WINDBREAK

You need a strong windbreak to minimise damage from the strong sea breezes, which will create shelter and help widen the choice of plant’s you’ll be able to grow.

140

Plant a hedge or wind-filtering barrier of trees or shrubs which are of good

depth, preferably planted in two or more staggered rows. Good species for this job include pine, alder, hawthorn and hornbeam. If you want to go for willow or poplar, keep them well away from buildings, as tree roots can cause damage to the fabric of buildings and the drains. Alternatively, you could go for a fence-like windbreak such as woven wattle or willow hurdles which are available from garden centres or local craftsmen. Have a look in the classified sections of any of the gardening magazines and you should find what you want.

CHECK OUT NEIGHBOURING GARDENS

Walk around the area and make a note of the plants which are thriving in neighbouring gardens, so you know what would do well in yours. Sea shells, nautical antiques, washedup timber, statues and even disused boats can be used ornamentally.

5 

KNOW WHAT PLANTS CAN THRIVE

Perennials which can be grown in a seaside setting include achillea, crocosmia, eryngium (sea holly), echinops (globe thistle), sedum, heuchera (coral flower), euphorbia, gazania, scabiosa. Suitable shrubs and climbers include buddleia, berberis, genista (broom), cistus (rock rose), ceanothus, escallonia, weigela, hebe, lavatera, passiflora (passion flower), ribes (ornamental currant), rosmarinus (rosemary). Don’t forget rock plants Armeria maritima, aubrieta, alpinus, phlox subulata, osteospermum jucundum, karvinskianus, Iris pumila.

such as dianthus stachys, erigeron

2 

TEST YOUR SOIL

Buy a pH kit from your local garden centre. Many seaside gardens are high in alkaline because of the high calcium content of crushed sea shells. If you have alkaline soil, don’t plant lime-haters such as rhododendron or azalea, because they won’t do well. If your soil is sandy, beef it up with some organic matter to retain moisture and add nutrients. Once you have done this, mulch the area with compost or chipped bark to keep in the moisture.

3 

CHOOSE PLANTS CAREFULLY

There are many plants which are tough enough to withstand all that salt spray and sea breeze can throw at them, but as a rule of thumb, you will find that those with tough, leathery leaves as well as spiny and hairy plants should have more resistance to drying winds.

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring. By Nick Fletcher

NEW BMW X3 MODELS From December, a new fourcylinder petrol engine will be added to the BMW X3 range. In addition to BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, the 2-litre power unit also boasts weightoptimised design and a new engine system for optimising acoustic characteristics and warm-up behavior. It comes as standard with the combination of an eightspeed Steptronic transmission and intelligent all-wheel drive technology, BMW xDrive. The engine featured in the new BMW X3 xDrive20i (£37,980) offers 184 hp, has a 0-60 mph time of 8.3 second, returns 39.8 mpg combined and has CO2 emission levels 163 g/km. Also from December, the first ever M Performance X3 will be available. It reaches 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, has a top speed of 155 mph and is priced at £48,950.It features eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission with Launch Control.

ROAD TEST: DACIA SANDERO STEPWAY Dacia is a car brand founded in the 1960s but in 1999 it was taken over by the Renault Group which expanded its market across Europe and re-introduced it to the UK, writes NICK FLETCHER. Dacia uses proven Renault powertrains wrapped up in fresh-looking designs and with the emphasis on unmatchable value for money. I had to triple-check the prices before believing the Dacia Sandero Stepway, a smart-looking compact SUV, actually starts at just £5,995. Fair enough, that’s a basic version with minimal equipment but my mid-range Ambiance test model had remote locking, air-conditioning, roof rails, DAB radio, stop-start function, tinted glass, front fog lights, electric front windows, skid-plates, hill-start assist and ISOFIX points for child seats – yet still costs only £8,995. The Stepway is a visually-rugged version of the Sandero hatchback and has raised ride height,skid-plates and one or two other visual touches to make it attractive to those wanting to get in on the booming SUV market at a bargain price.

Yet the Stepway isn’t just about value for money. Its exterior styling is quite classy, its interior is surprisingly spacious, and its drives pleasingly enough to suit all but the most critical buyer. There are petrol and diesel engines and my test model had a 0.9 litre petrol unit with the standard 5-speed manual gearbox. The 0-60 mph time is 11.1 seconds, top speed 104 mph and the fuel economy a respectable 55.4 mpg combined. The Stepway had a light makeover a few months ago and now has a new frontal identity which features the design cues of its Duster stablemate, and chrome detailing outside, and in the cabin, add an eye-catching touch. Front and rear occupants get good head and leg room, and the 320 litre boot is larger than most rivals and can be boosted to 1,200 litres by dropping the split-fold rear seats, so top marks for practicality. The dashboard is laid out well for easy use and while cabin plastics are cheaper grade they still look presentable. And as if to underline that Dacia is far more than just a cut-price contender, the brand came fourth out of 34 for reliability in a Which? survey last year.

NEW MASERATI MODELS

146

Maserati has unveiled its new GranTurismo and GranCabrio models, which are priced from £94,285 and £108,340 respectively. The original GranTurismo concept involved fitting a sophisticated race car engine into a luxurious, handcrafted saloon, which is what Maserati did in 1947 with the A6 1500, which was styled by Pininfarina. “Today’s GranTurismo models are direct descendants of this breakthrough innovation,” says Maserati. “They embody the irresistible allure of exotic Italian style combined with hardedged, race-bred performance”. Available in Sport and MC trim levels, the GranTurismo and GranCabrio both feature a 4.7-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine. Developed jointly by Ferrari and Maserati and handcrafted by Ferrari in Maranello, the engine produces 460 hp.

AUDI CARBON EDITIONS

ROAD TEST: TOYOTA RAV4 Toyota’s rugged RAV4 is well established in the SUV sales battle where it takes on very tough opposition, writes NICK FLETCHER. The RAV4 is more spacious than most, has the bonus of a full hybrid version, and its other ace card is the brand’s formidable reputation for durability and dependability. Price start at £24,765 and there is a good choice of petrol and diesels engines as well as the hybrid, and there is the option of 2WD or 4WD and manual or auto gearboxes. The latest model looks cool and sharp in a sector where visual kudos is a key factor, so the RAV4 is off to a good start. Inside, it is roomy and can take four tall adults with ease and a fifth at a squeeze, and the rear seats recline for extra comfort. At 501 litres the boot area is excellent and folding the rear seats can more than triple the space to 1,633 litres. Seating is comfortable and supportive and there are plenty of stowage places around the cabin. The designers seem to have put all the emphasis on functionality, so all the dials and controls are user-friendly, My test model was an upper-spec RAV4 Hybrid Excel, with all-wheel drive and powered by a 2.5 litre petrol engine and

electric motor giving 195 hp, with CVT auto gearbox. With a 0-60 mph time of 8.4 seconds it is quite nippy by class standards, and top speed is 112 mph. Fuel figure is 55.4 mpg combined. This version costs £33,975 and comes with 18-inch alloys, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, road sign assist, pre-collision system, auto lights and wipers, smart entry and push button start, powered tailgate, rear view camera, leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors, sat-nav, Bluetooth and on-line connectivity among its long list of features. On the move the RAV4 proves smooth and assured, with a balanced suspension set-up and precise steering making the car well planted on the corners. Ride quality is very good even when the surface gets rough. The only adverse comment in my notebook was more tyre hum at motorway speeds than I expected. Toyota’s brand reliability is well-known and it is backed by a five-year warranty - better than that of most rivals. The RAV4 is not the cheapest in the sector but when you start listing its various plus-points, it becomes increasing hard to resist.

New Carbon Edition versions of latest Audi Sport models are now available as more highly specified alternatives to ‘standard’ cars. Carbon Edition versions of RS 4 Avant and RS 5 Coupé are available to order priced at £71,625 and £75,400 respectively. Additions include extensive carbon-fibre detailing, including full roof on RS 5, plus 20-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, RS sport exhaust, and RS matrix LED headlamps. A new 2.9 TFSI engine with 444hp delivers 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds (RS 4 Avant 4.1 seconds), and 155mph top speed which can be increased to 174mph. Standard specification includes quattro drive with rear sport differential, Audi Virtual Cockpit with RS-specific displays, MMI Navigation Plus, Audi connect infotainment services, RS sport suspension with Dynamic Ride Control, and driver safety and connectivity systems. Highlights from the safetyfocused features of all RS 4 and RS 5 variants include multicollision brake assist and the Audi Side Assist blindspot warning system. Customers can enhance protection even further by choosing option bundles including the Driver Assistance Pack and Tour and Parking Assistance Pack.

NEW HYUNDAI MODEL Hyundai has announced details of its new i30 N, which will go on sale in the UK in January, priced from £24,995. The i30 N is Hyundai’s first performance model under the Hyundai N sub-brand, and is engineered by Hyundai’s dedicated High Performance Vehicle Division. The i30 N is available in two specifications, i30 N and i30 N Performance. Both models continue with the i30’s already extensive list of standard equipment, whilst adding N specific interior and exterior equipment as well performance modifications. The i30 N features a host of standard equipment in line with the rest of the i30 range, including LED head and tail lights, Smart Adaptive Speed Control, Keyless Entry with Engine Start/Stop Button, 8” Touchscreen Satellite Navigation with Android Auto and Apple Car Play. i30 N also offers an array of performance equipment, including Torque Vectoring System and steering wheel mounted Drive Mode Buttons, where the driver can access and customise engine and suspension settings. Priced from £27,995, the i30 N Performance offers additional performance-specific equipment, including an additional 25 hp and Electronic Limited Slip Differential.

GENNARO CONTALDO’S SHARING HIS PASSION FOR FRESH FOOD AND GOOD COOKING Jamie Oliver’s ‘London dad’ has just republished his autobiographical cookbook, Gennaro’s Passione. “Would you like to taste some pasta?” Just two minutes after meeting Gennaro Contaldo at one of the London branches of Jamie’s Italian, he’s already being the perfect host. As it’s lunchtime, and yes, I am quite hungry, I gratefully accept, and he quickly dispatches a waiter with instructions to ask chef Valentino for “one pasta special of the day”, adding in that famous Italian lilt: “Ees for Gennaro”. The bubbly 68-year-old is universally loved by all the chefs he trains at Jamie’s Italian restaurants around the globe, and most of all by his protege, Jamie himself, who calls Gennaro his ‘London dad’. The feeling is mutual. “Oh my God, does Jamie do more than me, he goes round and round and round. He’s always in touch. At the end of the day, we are cooks, more than anything else. We love cooking.” It’s this passion for cooking and good food that Gennaro extols in his cookbook Passione (“kind of my biography”), named after the restaurant he ran in London in the early-Noughties. First published in 2003 - “that book put me on the map” - it’s now been lovingly updated with stories and photos from Gennaro’s childhood growing up on Italy’s Amalfi Coast. “I realised how beautiful it was when I left it. After two, maybe three years, I went back and when I reached my village [Minori], everything was ever so small and it was strange,” says the chef, who first left home to find his fortune in England as a young man of 20.

King Prawns & Crab with Garlic & Chilli (Serves 4)

In the books, he calls it a “free-range” childhood. The family had no fridge, so everything had to be fresh and they ate with the seasons. His father, a linen merchant, brought animals home he’d been given as payment by local farmers and did most of the cooking, while his mother, who he affectionately calls ‘a white witch’, sent him out to collect herbs from the mountains, which sparked a lifelong love of foraging (he boasts he can find wild rocket in central London). The pasta special arrives - squid-like calamarata with a pesto of roasted red peppers, garlic and chilli (“spice prolongs life”), with buffalo ricotta - and it’s the best thing I’ve ever tasted. “It’s kind of al dente, but it’s a little bit chewy because it’s fresh. Al dente means you chew longer, so you taste it and digest it better. You want to keep that flavour in your mouth longer, it’s like a glass of wine, it’s elegant, smooth.” When he first arrived in London, Gennaro worked as a kitchen porter for a hospital, to get a permit, and eventually ended up at his good friend Antonio Carluccio’s Neal Street Restaurant, where he met and mentored Jamie Oliver, before branching out on his own and opening Passione. He left the restaurant three years before it closed in 2009, a victim of the recession, to collaborate with Jamie on the Jamie’s Italian chain. “He is [like a son], he’s got exactly the same - even more - love, and cares and respects food and people, which is so important. I look up to him. My God, he can do it. And we film quite a lot, me and Jamie, we film a new programme which will come out next year. We go round Italy, meet all these beautiful Nonnas

[grandmothers] and try to discover these beautiful, almost lost recipes.” He has five of his own children, two with his current partner, and three from his previous marriage, and he’s not about to hang up his apron anytime soon. “This is what’s keeping me alive,” he says earnestly. “I have days when I think I’m too tired, but the minute I walk inside the kitchen, I feel 25. I believe another person like me is Jamie, he’s running around... to give lots of love to the world. And for me to come in the restaurant, and have a picture together with a young boy who’s been waiting months to see you, you give them such love and joy and you show them how to do something, you transfer a little tiny gene to him and he will find the same love and passion.” Gennaro’s Passione: The Classic Italian Cookery Book by Gennaro Contaldo is published in hardback by Pavilion, priced £20.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

CLINIC VISJEUNE Winter-proof Beauty Flawless, glowing skin is not a summer craze. Your skin is a 365 day-a-year job. With that being said, we believe that job should not be too time-consuming, faddy or costly, which is why we are proud to introduce ‘Biretix’ – a medical grade line of skincare, perfect for all. Biretix is proven to tackle every stage in the cycle of spot prone skin, leaving the skin clearer and reducing acne, redness and blemishes without causing dryness. Non-irritant and gentle to use, these products are perfect for even the most sensitive skin. It moisturises the skin without making it oily – suitable for ages 12 and over. Our Top Tips for Winter Skincare

1

Keep on the sun cream!

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you should put away your sun cream just yet. There is less UVB around in winter, but levels of UVA are still significant enough to age our skin. We recommend a sun cream with a high UVA rating all the year round if you want to protect your skin from its ageing effects – try our Heliocare SPF Range.

Special Offers 50% OFF Diode Laser Hair Removal

2

Keep it gentle

Your skin will become drier and often more sensitive with the onset of colder weather and central heating. Make sure you keep hydrated with plenty of water during the day and swap your coffee for green tea – it has great anti-oxidant effects! Gentle cleansing is a must; you need your skin barrier to be as healthy as possible so that it can retain vital moisture. Use our ‘Endocare’ range to combat all that winter throws at your skin. Endocare has bio repair technology, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles, brightens the skin and improves elasticity.

3

Listen to your skin’s needs

If you feel like you need to apply a moisturiser during the day, it is likely your skin routine needs tweaking. To find out what your skin needs, pop into Clinic Visjeune for a free skin scan. This analyses your skin at a microscopic level, so that we can find out exactly what your skin needs.

4

Look after your lips

Licking sore lips will only exacerbate dryness and can cause what is referred to as ‘lick eczema’. Make sure your lips are always moisturised, for a movie-star pout. If you want to enhance your lips for the festive season (and beyond), Lisa – who is a lead nurse and board advisor for the British association of cosmetic nurses – would be very happy to see you for a free consultation.

5

Free your feet from dead skin

Feet often become dry and cracked in the winter months. Exfoliating frequently and applying an effective moisturiser always helps, but

for many there just aren’t enough hours in the day. This is where Clinic Visjeune comes in. We offer pedicures (and shellac) perfect if you want to relax, sit back and treat yourself to a little pamper. We recommend a pedicure every 4-6 weeks, just to make sure you always have fabulous looking feet.

6

Book your skin peel now!

Winter is a great time of year for treatments such as skin peels and we offer a range of cutting edge treatments, including the much loved ‘Fire & Ice’. Incredible if your skin needs a bit of love and nourishment. It is perfect for both men and women, and has incredible results. Your skin will be glowing and wonderful for weeks afterwards!

HEALTH & BEAUTY

HEALTH & BEAUTY The latest beauty tips and treatments from the owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Academy, Sophie Tamagna

Our Skin is constantly on display and has the power to dictate exactly how good we are feeling about ourselves. Spending time and money on your skin is one of the best investments you will ever make – and I’m not talking breaking the bank – getting a monthly Facial and using the correct skincare products at home to maintain the results achieved in the Facial is achievable for everyone. October is Facial Month at Chic and I want to highlight the importance of good skincare and a regular Facial. You will see we use the word ‘customised’, that’s because every Facial that we do is different as we know every person’s skin is different and requires the use of different products and techniques to achieve maximum results. We are results driven in our techniques and we want you to achieve the skin you’ve always wanted! Facials are ideal once a month unless you have a specific skin concern such as Acne or Hyperpigmentation that may require a specific course of treatments. The reason for the 4 weekly visit is that your stratum corneum (the outer most layer of visible skin) will completely renew itself approximately every 28 days. In this time your skin cells are constantly being replicated (the treated cells replace the old cells). If you give your skin a head start (i.e. a great facial) your skin cells will begin to replicate the now healthier cells and therefore give you a better glowing complexion. Also by speeding up the skin renewal process with a great Facial you will feel the active benefits of skincare products a lot faster.

A Facial is not only functional as it will massively improve your complexion, it’s also time for you to relax and totally unwind whilst being pampered. Here’s my top 10 reasons to book that Chic Facial now! 1. Facials allow you to relax. They feel great and are healing to the soul. The power of touch, massage, proper technique, and professional products will improve your skin. Stress relief with the end result being beautiful skin – Yes please! 2. Facials increase circulation of the blood under the skin allowing the skin optimal health to facilitate the renewal of skin cells. 3. Facials decrease waste under the skin that can cause puffiness and fluid retention by manipulating the lymphatic system that lies just under the skin. Facials also help with detoxification. 4. A good Facial massage can help smooth fine lines and promote collagen production which is the building block of the skin (prevents sagging, wrinkles, and ageing). 5. A Facial will cleanse the pores on a much deeper level. Even a non-acneic skin can benefit from a deep cleanse. Extractions (cleaning out the pores) are part of most deep cleansing Facials and can help to maintain clear skin, stop acne formation as well as decreasing the pores size. Never attempt to remove blocked pores yourself – leave it to a professional so as not to damage or scar your skin.

6. A good Facial will incorporate a much deeper exfoliation than you can achieve at home. Exfoliation is great for smoothing the skin and allows for much deeper absorption of products, it unclogs the pores and improves the skins ability to hold hydration. Not to mention your foundation will glide on after an exfoliation and stay put on your skin a lot longer. 7. Like many you probably feel completely overwhelmed by the array of skincare products in the aisles of Boots and most Supermarkets. Rather than grabbing what’s on offer or the latest advertised ‘miracle’ cream, speak to your Facial therapist and purchase reasonable products that are actually personally prescribed for your skin type. 8. Facials can help start to regulate and even out pigmentation spots on the skin – a gentle reminder that an SPF is always a necessity. 9. Facials slow the ageing process. They allow your skin to feel healthier, smoother and look more radiant. Facials reduce fine lines and ages spots and relieve dehydrated skins. With these benefits Facials make us feel better about our skin. With the use of exfoliation, massage, and the penetration of nutrient and antioxidants, Facials also fight to reverse the signs of aging.. 10. Facials are not a miracle in an hour but they are a fresh start to a healthier and more balanced complexion. Regular Facials will help you maintain optimum skin health.

We wanted to know what all the fuss was about...

THE VENUE C’est Mani-fiq

I love a pampering. There’s something so soothing about paying the salon a visit in the hopes of emerging a-glow with confidence. This visit was a rendezvous at The Venue salon – one of our absolute favourites! Nails are your hands number one best accessories and every season a new must-have trend sweeps in. In an attempt to uncover this year’s Autumn/Winter looks, we asked the expert technicians at The Venue to give us the inside scoop. We arrived at The Venue one warm Wednesday afternoon. The last of the summer sun was beaming down, illuminating the elegant crisp white and dove grey shop front – calling us like two moths to an incredibly chic flame. The us, in this case, was myself and my partner in crime, ‘Vicky’. We pushed the door open to reveal the gorgeous salon. A grey and white canvas, enhanced with navy blue upholstery, uplifting greenery and plenty of sparkling silver flourishes gives the salon a truly decadent look. The waiting area is teaming with all the essentials; Vogue, I-pad, smoothie menu. Our technicians met us with smiling faces and led us to our own individual nail stations. As a habitual nail biter, Laura (my technician for the day) had her work cut out with me, though she showed no signs of wavering once she had seen my tiny talon. Which I might add, was a pleasant surprise, as I usually have to suffer a minimum of a two-minute lecture when I have been elsewhere – I’m an addict people, I’m beyond help. Rant over.

To my right, Vicky (with her beautiful natural nails) was being buffed and polished, chatting away with her incredibly friendly technician. For her on-trend autumnal look, she had recommended a voguish deep maroon colour, topped with a silver foil tip.

a neck and shoulder massage?! Heaven! In addition to the surface level facials, The Venue is also now offering cosmeceutical treatments including IPL (Intensive Light Pulse) Skin Rejuvenation, incredible chemical peels and other Aesthetics.

Laura was working away on manufacturing me some brand new nails, meticulously sculpting each and every one to an identical shape. My look was a growing trend strangely titled ‘Baby Boomers’, otherwise known as the ‘French Ombre’. A take on the classic French manicure, this adaptation offers a faded blend between the white and pink, as opposed to a clear shade and tip. Laura’s unique take was finished with a pearlescent topcoat, giving it a touch of subdued glamour, with just a hint of shimmer.

With our nails now officially dry, the girls lathered our cuticles with nourishing oil and we got the chance to marvel at our new sets. I was in love. This modern take on a classic technique was a dream, perfect for all occasions. Vicky was equally beaming with hers, pleased as punch with her dark and lustrous spurs.

Whilst waiting for the polish to dry, owner and operator ‘Emily’, gave us a quick tour, where enroute we met with their skincare guru, Kayleigh. Fresh off of her Dermalogica intensive skin-mapping course, she was buzzing with exciting industry news, particularly their latest service the ‘Prescriptive Dermalogica Facial’ (£40). Tailored to your skin’s exact needs, this facial works for, not against you. Use the exclusive Dermalogica ‘face-mapping’ technique the treatment is adapted specifically for each individual. Oh and did I mentioned that this also includes a pressure point facial massage and

ASK THE EXPERT...

TRY SALT THERAPY FOR HEALTHY SKIN AND MORE… The particles of dry salt that settle on skin during a salt therapy session have numerous benefits – therapeutic and cosmetic. Salt therapy gently and effectively boosts exfoliation, removing dull, dead skin cells and debris from the surface. This can help clear impacted follicles and prevent acne formation. It also helps normalise the skin’s pH-balance and fortify the skin’s protective barrier. Dry salt aerosol has anti-bacterial properties, yet its gentle action does not compromise the skin’s normal microflora. It’s also an antiinflammatory, reducing redness and swelling, which make it beneficial in treating certain skin conditions, such as acne (you can combine with microdermabrasion and blue light therapy for faster results), eczema and psoriasis. It provides long-lasting relief from redness, irritation and skin rashes, helping to significantly reduce discomfort associated with lesions, scales and inflamed tissue. Salt therapy contributes to post-surgery recovery, helping repair and promote healthy tissue regeneration and the prevention of scar tissue. It also helps prevent secondary infections by restoring the skin’s natural defensive properties, nourishing and revitalising the skin’s delicate tissues. Salt therapy boosts skin microcirculation, facilitating deeper penetration of therapeutic skin care serums, lotions and creams, and it facilitates the elimination of toxins. It works synergistically with skin care treatments and helps maximise results. Moreover, its antioxidant properties help fight free radicals – for a powerful anti-aging effect. The end result is skin with a natural, healthy glow. Clients who arrive in our salt room to address skin conditions are also very likely to experience an improvement in general health and wellbeing, with improved immunity and reduced hypersensitivity to the common allergens and other irritants that can trigger skin disorders. Skin conditions are often exacerbated by stress and when clients take in the benefits of Salt Therapy in the peaceful atmosphere of a welldesigned salt room, they are likely to experience a much greater sense of calm and wellbeing.

and non-surgical face lifting (threadlift and Ultrasound lift) to name but a few. Coastal Due to popular demand, they have now added fat reduction procedures to their treatment options. Aqualyx and Cryolypolisis are reaching new heights within the aesthetics industry and the results speak for themselves. Stubborn fat deposits can be dissolved simply and effectively with Aqualyx on areas such as double chin, upper arms, waist, abdomen, moobs, saddlebags, thighs and knees. How does aqualyx work? The active substance found Aqualyx locks onto the fat cell wall making it unstable enough to begin releasing the fatty acid store within. The residue is removed by the body defences and the fatty acids metabolised and converted into energy. The range of medical cosmetic treatments offered include: • Male Anti wrinkle

• Cheek Fillers

• Excessive Sweating

• Fat Reduction

• Lip Fillers

Blazing light and colours meet together in my paintings and create an impression of living melody or singing colours. “My acrylic paintings are rich in texture and every dancing brushstroke creates sense of joy and freedom. I love to paint outside, spending hours gazing at the view, its like breathing in the atmosphere of surrounding beauty and breathing out images full of positive feelings producing even therapeutic and emotional impact on a viewer.” Visit www.irinasong.co.uk for more information about works of art and upcoming events.

CALLING ALL STUDENT LANDLORDS! We need your property!

This year’s students may have only just moved in but in no time at all we’ll be letting our student properties for the next academic year. We are already getting enquiries and we expect another busy year. We are the market leader in student lettings with experienced staff, fantastic processes and superior knowledge within the industry. Last year was another record year for us for a reason. If you have a student property to let or a property you think may be suitable for student lettings then we would love to have a chat with you to see how we can help you make the most of your investment. We work with our landlords to make their properties even more appealing and get them let quicker. If you have a property to let and are looking for an agent to act for you, or are not happy with your current agent, then give Phil Taylor a call on 01202 553377 for an informal chat.
