Jestico and Whiles given green light to create leisure district in abandoned air base Architecture studio Jestico + Whiles’ plans to transform a disused air base in Oxfordshire, UK, into a leisure district has been given the green light by the local council. According to the design team, the complex – located in the village of Upper Heyford – will be like no other in the country due to its typological flexibility and historic reference points. Cherwell District Council have approved the project, and an estimated 12-month construction schedule is set to begin in the New Year. The design will repurpose two former buildings – occupied at different times by both the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the United States Air Force (USAF) – using contrasting, modern materials to extend the spaces, making them more suitable for communal use. Facilities will include an American style brasserie, a boutique hotel, a delicatessen and market hall, a café and brunch bar, two terraces, external seating, co-working spaces, play areas and a landscaped garden. “Our vision is to create an exciting sustainable hub for enterprise, culture and living,” said Paul Silver, CEO of project developer Dorchester Living. “We’re re-imaging how a village should look and feel, and by pushing the boundaries of the buildings purpose, design and materials, we’re creating great community spaces that people can be proud of and inspired to use. We want these buildings and spaces to stand the test of time and that was integral to our planning.” James Dilley, head of hospitality at Jestico + Whiles, added:
“We honestly believe that there is currently no other comparable development in the UK in terms of the features and designs this scheme will deliver. “Above all, our proposal for the village centre of Heyford Park is about placemaking, in part through reference to the rich context of this beautiful part of Oxfordshire and the layers of history on this site, not least the refurbishments of the heritage buildings of the former USAF base.” Jestico + Whiles have worked on a number of major urban regeneration schemes involving the refurbishment of historic buildings, including Spitalfields and Borough Market in London.
Purpose-built baseball facility could be in Manchester by the end of next year
A new purpose-built baseball facility is being lined up for Manchester, and could be complete before the end of next year according to the sport’s governing body. Around 18 months ago, BaseballSoftball UK revealed its plan to build the venue in the north-west city, and following talks with Manchester City Council the development is on track.
The local authority is currently undertaking a review of its playing pitch strategy based on perceived demand for outdoor playing facilities.
“Understandably, good playing land in Manchester is sought by many sports,” he said. “I have always believed that when we build a facility in the north, it has to be in the right location in order to get a return on investment and to really have an effect on the growth of the sports.”
In an interview with Sports Management earlier this year, BaseballSoftball UK chief executive Jenny Fromer said that growing the sport’s presence in the north was one of the organisation’s key strategic priorities.
The final piece of the puzzle is to secure funding, with bids submitted to Sport England and the Baseball Tomorrow Fund. Finance will also be sought from other sources, as well as community fundraising.
BaseballSoftball UK’s north-west development manager Luis Arrevillagas agreed.
If the funding package comes together quickly work on the project could begin by April or May next year.

Premier Rides and Producers Group combine ‘delectable dining, cinematic adventure and theme park thrills’ in multi-sensory attraction concept Theme park production company The Producers Group has teamed up with US coaster maker Premier Rides to create a turnkey attraction that combines the dark ride with the dining room. Extraordinary Voyages Adventure Dining (EVAD) takes place in a 80-seat vehicle that travels across a standard 15,000sq ft (1,400sq m) footprint, departing at intervals of between 45 and 90 minutes. The vehicle, Centurion, takes its passengers on a journey that stops at different points to immerse them in a variety of destination-inspired scenarios. During this adventure, the passengers are served food and beverages, which could complement the visual environments and narratives. “Extraordinary Voyages is an evolution in entertainment,” said Edward Marks, co-CEO of The Producers Group. “It’s the perfect mix of delectable dining, cinematic adventure
and theme park thrills.” Scenes and themes can be completely customisable. For example, passengers could be taken on a whistlestop tour of the world’s top cities, a trip into space, a journey back in time or a completely imagined – or branded – world. “This is a first for both companies, partnering together to create a new patented ride system experience,” said Marks.
Technogym’s global sales up 11 per cent during Q3 Fitness equipment giant Technogym has recorded double digit sales growth during Q3, driven largely by impressive growth in the North American market. The Italy-based group, announcing its results for the three months to 30 September, saw total sales increase by 11.2 per cent during the period. As a result, group-wide sales in the first nine months of 2016 reached €385.1m (€348m, £310m), up from €352.1m (€328m, £283m) in the same period of 2015. Nerio Alessandri, chair and CEO of Technogym, credited the results on a strong performance in the North American market – where sales increased by 29 per cent. “The third quarter of 2016 saw a continued trend of double digit growth, higher than the market average,” Alessandri said. “We are particularly satisfied with the results obtained in the US, both in terms of sales and positioning within the most prestigious clubs, hotels, companies and medical centres of the country. “During the third quarter of 2016, we also played a central
role as the official supplier at Rio 2016 Olympic games, during which the best athletes of the world trained with Technogym.” Technogym launched its IPO on the Milan stock market in May. Founded in 1983, the company currently employs more than 2,000 employees and has a sales presence in more than 100 countries.

Leonardo DiCaprio releases brand new images of groundbreaking ecoresort in Belize
Final plans and brand new renderings have been released for Leonardo DiCaprio’s ambitious eco resort and wildlife reserve off the coast of Belize.
The Hollywood star, Oscar winner and environmental campaigner wants the island of Blackadore Caye to become the world’s leading example of green hospitality. It has been conceived with the aim of restoring its fragile surrounding ecosystem, while offering guests a taste of luxury in a tropical setting. DiCaprio and the Blackadore Development Group have spent the last six months gathering feedback from local stakeholders and citizens on the design of the resort, which has been created by Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston International and environmental sustainability architect Jason McLennan. The original plan to place some of the resort’s villas on a giant platform stretching in an arc over the water, with artificial reefs and fish shelters beneath it, has been scaled back to appease local environmentalists. Blackadore Development said the decision to remove something that had “garnered great design acclaim” based on expert feedback demonstrates its dedication to ensuring the resort is as
environmentally sustainable as possible. The island’s infrastructure has been designed under a conservation framework developed by biologists and ecologists who have studied ways to support and preserve the island’s habitat and biodiversity during construction. The project will also seek to showcase how to stabilise a quickly eroding landscape through ecological shoreline protection. Mangroves will be replaced, invasive species removed and native species planted. This in turn is expected to enhance the soil and habitat, creating better conditions for reef and fish breeding. The resort itself will feature 36 resort bungalows, 36 estate homes and a a protected wildlife preserve that covers over half the island. All power used will be sourced from renewable energy and water will be provided through rainwater collection and onsite water treatment. McLennan has used geometrical concepts in his designs for the resort, with the proportions of buildings derived from mathematical proportions found in nature.
All events will feature Schwinn’s AC Performance Plus bike with its Carbon Blue drive train.
The Schwinn Invasion tour is being organised by Schwinn parent company, Core Health & Fitness, Core’s distributor partners and Schwinn Master Instructors and presenters throughout Europe. Merrill Richmond, vice president of Marketing at Core Health & Fitness said: “The idea for this tour came from our Master Instructor team at FIBO this spring and swiftly grew in size and scale thanks to the cooperation and support of our distributor partners. “It’s a great example of how our company works with partners to build on the heritage of our brands and deliver something new to the fitness community.”
The Schwinn Invasion tour will include cycling events that range from 40 bikes to 200 and range from traditional one hour rides to marathon rides of 12 hours or more. Fitness enthusiasts can participate in the Schwinn Invasion Tour by riding at one of the venues and by engaging with the tour via Twitter and Facebook.

Wearable Medical Technology proven to relieve pain, improve performance & speed recovery. Drug-Free. The PainPod™: Wearable Medical Technology proven to relieve pain, improve performance & speed recovery. Drug-Free. Electric Medicine - Shocking facts
PainPod for Pain Relief
Ever since ancient Egyptians discovered the shocking effects of electric fish on the body, successive generations have used electrotherapy to manage pain by stimulating nerves, tissues and muscles.
The biotechnology in every unit combines bespoke proprietary frequency treatments using advanced waveforms to immediately and precisely block the pain messages to the brain. At the same time gentle bio-pulses passing through the body Increase blood-flow and improve circulation, speeding the body’s natural healing process. Medically researched and expertly engineered, these treatment modalities provide effective relief from almost all pain types including acute pain, chronic pain, dental pain, and labour pain PainPod for enhanced performance and fast recovery When used during exercise, the PainPod Physical Therapy Technology (PTT) can activate up to 100% of muscle fibres, something impossible using regular training methods. This full muscle activation increases exercise tolerance, which, in turn, enhances and accelerates the athlete’s physical performance, meaning better results, faster.
By the late 1800’s, man-made devices had replaced the fishy shockers and medicinal electrical therapy was being used to treat all manner of ‘disturbances’ and countless dental, neurological, psychiatric and gynaecological “matters”. Electrotherapy remained preeminent until the emergence and profusion of analgesic drugs led to decreased interest because it “lacked scientific basis” By the 1970’s, as animal experiments and clinical investigations expanded the understanding of neurophysiological mechanisms, electrotherapy was on the rise again.
Te c h n o l o g y r e f i n e d , r e s u l t s evidenced, it was clinically and unquestionably proven to treat pain and became available to the general public.
Strength gains come during the immediate post-training period as the body repairs exercise strain. When used during this rehabilitation and recovery phase, PainPod PTT speeds muscle repair and enhances effective recovery, meaning greater performance gains and lower likelihood of injury relapse.
Now, by combining up to the minute advances in science waveform and micro currents with the latest neurological understandings and advanced engineering technology, the team at PainPod BioTechnology are leading the way with the next generation of wearable devices that are not only proven for effective pain relief but that also speed recovery and increase performance. As demands for alternatives to the use and abuse of drugs increase, the new range of PainPod devices bring natural drug-free pain relief and performance benefit to pro-sports, athletes, fitness enthusiasts and anyone wanting a pain-free lifestyle.
Biologically body friendly and sleek design, PainPod can be used on almost any area of the body, lower back, arms, legs, stomach, feet or shoulders. A drug-free, non prescription, non-invasive treatment alternative, the PainPod wearables have a range of treatment settings including acupuncture, massage and fat burning modes meaning you can beat your personal best, recover fast and enjoy life without pain. As a superbike racer himself, co-founder Rick Rowan had firsthand experience of the toll that sports performance and sport injuries take on the body so knew exactly what people needed. “By combining PainPod ™ physical therapy
PainPod for everyone, anywhere

CIVILIZATION’S MOST SACRED AND POWERFUL SUPERFOOD! Life begins with bee pollen.
Since the dawn of time, civilizations from around the globe have known about the power of bee pollen as a sacred source of energy, rejuvenation, longevity and healing. The ancient Greeks used it for increased stamina, and it was used as an energy enhancer even at the very first Olympic Games. The famous Greek physician and philosopher Hippocrates once said ‘Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food’, and bee pollen epitomises this philosophy perfectly. It was found in the tombs of the Pharaohs in ancient Egypt. The Aztecs wore vials filled with pollen around tZheir necks as a tonic, and it’s still actively used in Chinese medicine.
What is pollen anyway?
These microscopic, dust sized granules are the genesis of all plant life, or the fertilizing element on the stamen of all flowering plants. As well as their obvious job of pollinating plants for reproduction, collect pollen to take back to the hive, where they feed it to young bees. What remains is collected for human consumption. Bee pollen is the richest source of nutrients found in nature in a single food. The list of nutrients is astounding. • 27 vitamins and amino acids • 28 minerals and antioxidants • 11 enzymes & co-enzymes • 24 Beneficial fatty acids • 11 carbohydrates Bee pollen is perfectly balanced by Mother Nature to feed your cells, and to re-energise and rejuvenate your life.
What can it do for you?
It provides nutritional support for your immune system, digestion, hair, skin and nails and can help to boost your energy and help your body to recover faster from strenuous exercise or illness. There are numerous scientific studies (just Google bee pollen!) showing the benefits of taking bee pollen every day.
Who can take bee pollen?
Why, everyone of course! It’s the perfect natural multivitamin supplement. It can support the diet of young children who refuse to eat their greens. Just open the capsules and sprinkle the delicious contents on anything they eat or drink. Perfect in a smoothie, or on their cereal or toast. It’s great for people from all walks of life, from busy working mums to seniors who could use a boost to their energy. Even celebrities love it...
Why Nature Bee Potentiated Bee Pollen?
Although pollen is granular in its raw form, the cell walls of pollen are incredible hard. Imagine a kernel of popcorn before it’s been popped! We developed a unique process to rupture the tough cell walls to make the pollen more digestible. This allows your digestive juices to absorb the nutrients faster and more efficiently. Nature Bee Potentiated Bee Pollen is a pure, wholesome natural vegetable food in a capsule. It is NOT made in a laboratory and full of dead chemicals mixed with fillers and preservatives! Bee happy... bee healthy, become a bee pollen bee-liever. Find out how you can thrive from the hive and see our range of bee hive products. Visit our website www.naturebee.com or call 0808 234 6698 for more information.

Brits spent £249,600,000 on unused health and fitness clothing and equipment in 2015 Gym membership cost on average £40 per visit in 2015 1 in 5 now has some form of gym equipment in the home
FITNESS FADDISTS in the UK are investing heavily in health and fitness clothing, equipment and gym memberships that are going unused, according to new research The survey of 1,000 UK adults, carried out by beabetteryoucourses.co.uk as part of the 2016 Fitness Knowledge Report, found that despite many gym goers claiming that the help of nutrition and fitness professionals, such as PTs, is cost-prohibitive many are making uneconomical choices towards other aspects of health and fitness. The data shows that the nation has spent more than £249,600,000 on gym clothing and equipment that has gone unused in the last year.
UK adults spent an average of £52 each in 2015 on health and fitness clothing and equipment – with 1 in 10 admitting they never once used what they bought. According to the data, the average pair of running trainers costs £37, despite the average Brit running just 11 miles per year – a cost of £3.36 per mile.
014 Fitness & Beauty Professional
The research also found that gym goers spent an average of £550 on gym membership in 2015, despite only having been 13.5 times in that time – a cost of £40 per visit. Simon Bubb, managing director at beabetteryoucourses.co.uk said: “When making the commitment to getting fit and healthy, the investment should be more than just financial - it’s about investing the time and mental energy, as well as physical, into making a lifestyle change. It’s very easy to sign up to a gym, go shopping and kit yourself out with the latest fitness gear, but what use is it if that investment lays dormant?
“British adults should consider the most effective way for them to get fit and healthy which fits in with their budget - whether that’s a combination of pay-as-you-go fitness classes and home workouts, or personal training sessions to keep them on track. It has to work for the individual, and they need to be able to maintain it so their investment isn’t in vain.
“Many believe that PTs and the help of fitness and nutrition professionals is cost prohibitive - and they so many are splashing out on equipment and clothing which they don’t have the motivation to use. One of the key things a PT can provide is that motivation and the extra support needed when establishing a new lifestyle.” Many UK adults are now also happily spending money on home gym equipment instead of professional fitness help – which the survey found also appears to be an uneconomical choice. 1 in 5 (19%) of Brits now has some form of gym equipment in the home, yet the majority (53%) use it less than once per month. Women aged 26-45 years old are the most likely to have some sort of home gym equipment – but 1 in 3 admit this is more to do with feeling self-conscious while exercising in public, than with the cost.

Huntsman launches new TiO2 pigment for premium cosmetic formulations
Fitness & Beauty Professional Industry News 005
Presented at the in-cosmetics Latin America trade show in Sao Paulo, the new Hombitan pigment has be designed to fit the needs of high-end cosmetic products. Global chemical company Huntsman has developed a brand new, super pure grade of titanium dioxide (TiO2) that can be used to improve the opacity of premium cosmetic products that need to provide excellent uniform coverage. The Hombitan AFDC 101 pigment is a unique, high purity, uncoated anatase grade of TiO2 with a very narrow particle size distribution. “Delivering better opacity performance than standard white pigment grades, Hombitan AFDC 101 pigment is ideally suited for use in high-end cosmetic formulations including foundations, eye shadows, face powders and lipsticks,” said the company. The Hombitan AFDC 101 pigment, which is of mineral origin, is created using a special process technology devised by Huntsman, which gives it greater control over crystal size and particle distribution. Using its enhanced crystal size control technology, Huntsman is able to produce crystal size distributions that are optimized to reflect selected wavelengths of light. In the case of Hombitan AFDC 101 pigment, the result is a product that combines the softness of an anatase pigment with the opacity of a rutile pigment. “The launch of Hombitan AFDC101 pigment represents a major breakthrough in our TiO2 offering to the premium cosmetics industry. It is the first product made using our enhanced crystal size control technology, which gives us the ability to fine-tune both particle size and distribution to suit specific applications. Hombitan AFDC 101 pigment has consistently fine particles over a consistently narrow distribution. There is no other product that offers the same properties,” said Reiner Mertscheit, Sales and Marketing Director at Huntsman. Used as a white, natural, identical colour additive, Hombitan AFDC 101 pigment can work on its own or in combination with colour pigments. According to Huntsman, it disperses rapidly into formulations and is ideal for use in aqueous systems such as creams, which use water as a wetting agent. Hombitan AFDC 101 pigment is compliant with relevant regulations including ISO 9001 (quality); ISO 14001 (environment); ISO 18001 (health and safety); ISO 22000 / FSSC 22000 (food); and Ecocert / Cosmos. It is also satisfies kosher and halal requirements.
Greentech acquires Brazilian active ingredients supplier Mapric
French plant biotechnology pioneer Greentech continues its international expansion with the purchase of the Brazilian company Mapric, provider of active ingredients for the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.
Mapric’s activity complements that of Greentech, which develops and produces high (tech active ingredients from the plant, marine and microbial worlds for these same industries, through its three companies Greentech, Greensea and Biovitis. “The two companies’ synergistic know-how will strengthen R&D, production capacities, sales teams and local and international partnerships,” said the French company in a release.
Through the acquisition, Mapric gains an international dimension to continue its growth, while Greentech is already present in Brazil - through its subsidiary Greentech Brasil - it gains a local production site in a country with particularly rich biodiversity. Mapric is certified ISO 9001:2008, and was a visionary in working very early on with CGEN (Conselho de Gestão do Patrimônio Genético), the organization managing the protection of Brazilian biodiversity and industrial and trade relations with local communities. Today, it has obtained CGEN approval for over 60 Brazilian plants. For its part, Greentech has always focused on sustainable development and fair trade and has established partnerships in many countries in the past 20+ years.

It is the first time that an English beauty-retailer is expanding its presence in France with the acquisition of an existing prestige beauty retail chain. The beauty retailer - which debuted in 2005 in the UK - now has its own physical point of sale at 35 avenue Marceau, in Paris 16th district. This new milestone in its development in France will allow the retailer to offer its customers a different shopping experience. Feelunique also opened two other stores in BoulogneBillancourt and Neuilly-sur-Seine, in the upscale western outskirts of Paris. By the end of the year, the retail will also open another shop in Levallois-Perret. All the four new brick-and-mortar stores are the result of the rebranding of beauty retail chain Rive Droite that Feelunique acquired in November 2015.
Thanks to these bricks-and-mortar shop, Feelunique also complies with current regulations regarding selective distribution in the perfumery sector, which should logically facilitate the diversification of its portfolio and references, a key factor of success to attract French consumers who are more loyal than others to leading prestige beauty brands. So far, Feelunique was only operating shops in the Channel Islands, in Jersey and Guernsey. Omni-channel offering The 100m2 Feeleunique beauty outlet brings together a wide range of iconic perfumery brands including classic and selected niche brands. To help customers during their shopping experience and give them access to the whole Feelunique offering, shop assistants are equipped with iPads. Customers can therefore choose and order products from the 20 000 items and 450 brands already available on the e-shop (fragrance, bath & body, hair skin, makeup, brows, sun & tan, healthy living, electricals, gifts ...). Products can be delivered at home or at the point sale. Twice a month the Avenue Marceau store should also provide the opportunity for meetings between brands creators and consumers.
Hair and beauty salon The shop is also equipped with three treatment and massage rooms. Beauticians will advise customers to help them choose products and services fitting their needs, including body and face care products (CellCosmet, Valmont, Annayaké and Carita), hair removal services, manicure and pedicure, etc. The new Feelunique shop in Paris includes a hair care area and three treatment and massage rooms.

Furthermore, every Thursday evening until 08:30 pm special party hairstyles are proposed ... together with a glass of champagne (for the French Touch!).

Age is not a number... ...it is a frame of mind. 010 Anti Ageing & Skincare Special Fitness & Beauty Professional
How many times have we been told thatâ€Śbut today that is truer than ever because we live in a wonderful age where science has made so many leaps in so many directions.
Things have changed. Thanks to global research and development by medical institutions, universities and skincare companies, anyone wanting to hold back the years has far more choice than before.
Once, a glance in a mirror and discovering that we were turning into our parents was enough to send us screaming for the scalpel demanding everything the surgical holy grail could provide. And often that was a full-on plastic surgery involving general anaesthetic and a whole lot of recovery downtime. The results were not subtle. Overstretched and immoveable faces looking like they had been sucked into a wind tunnel.
With choice comes knowledge. People are more knowledgeable about cosmetic surgery so they can make wiser choices. They opt for tweaks and tiny, regular fixesâ€Ś subtle procedures to refresh, or gentle surgeries that hold back the years in unobtrusive, more elegant ways. Prevention is better than cure. At Bel Age we aim to bring you the latest in whatâ€™s out there - so that your choice of how you age is up to you.

NATURE C SKINCARE RANGE INTRODUCING THE
USED BY THOUSANDS IN NEW ZEALAND, AUSTRALIA AND THE USA. NOW AVAILABLE IN THE UK Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and commands the same level of care and attention as the organs we can’t see. The condition of your skin depends on many factors. Genes, climate, age, hormones, nutrition, environment just to name a few. Some products are expensive and bear untold claims to being the fountain of eternal youth, but in essence, your skin will benefit the most by using products that are as close to natural as possible. The Nature Bee family of health and beauty products are based on simple, natural ingredients provided by Mother Nature, and in particular those ingredients that come from the bee hive. Almost all of our skincare range contains Manuka honey as a key element. The remarkable healing and rejuvenative powers of Manuka honey as an ingestible and a topical agent are well documented. Manuka honey comes from the Manuka bush which is native to New Zealand. The honey is graded according to its UMF (Unique Manuka Factor). The higher the number of its UMF, the more effective it is as a medicinal agent.
Many hospitals use the highest grade of Manuka honey as a highly effective way to treat burns and other skin conditions. The honey doesn’t cling to dressings, and its own powerful chemistry facilitates healing of various skin conditions when other methods show less success. Our range of products contain Manuka honey, as well as various essential oils and other gentler ingredients which are not only kind to your skin, but show great results in reducing the visible signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles, crows’s feet, dry skin, brown spots and more. Using our products will help your skin to regain and maintain a natural, radiant glow, without costing the earth. FEATURE PRODUCTS: TAKING THE STING OUT OF AGEING NATURE C BEE VENOM MASK: Celebrities like Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham, Michelle Pfeiffer, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kylie Minogue are all reported to swear by bee venom cream. Bee venom is an alternative to painful expensive injectables and works by fooling the skin into thinking it has been stung. This slightly relaxes the facial muscles and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of youthful, healthy skin. Use as a treatment mask, or under makeup to keep your skin glowing.
NATURE C PLUS 1-2-3 SKINCARE ROUTINE Everything you need for everyday skincare. This three-part routine includes an exfoliating cleanser, daily moisturiser and an overnight recovery complex. The ingredients are Alpha Hydroxyl Acids, Manuka honey and a blend of natural oils. GENTLE EYE GEL Often, the first obvious signs of ageing appear around the eyes, so the delicate skin around this area needs special attention. Our gentle eye gel is a deliciously soothing application which helps to combat puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles and dark circles. It’s a must-have in any cosmetic bag. TIP: Even more effective if you chill before applying. To see more of our skincare range, visit our website www.naturebee.com or call 0808 234 6698 for more information.

AQUA 016 Fitness & Beauty Professional
The Aqua Zinger water bottle works by subtly infusing water with flavour. From cucumber to lemon and lime, to blackberries, kiwi, strawberry, peach, ginger, or even mint – your Aqua Zinger can infuse them all. Mix and match and get creative; the flavours and ingredients are only limited by your imagination. The Aqua Zinger has the unique ability to create all-natural beverage options, as well as help increase the frequency of water consumption. (When water is this delicious, it’s hard to avoid!) With Zing, water is flavourful and refreshing. A leak-proof cap is included so you can Zing in the car, on the treadmill, at the office – anywhere on the go. FEATURES: • Vacuum insulated, double wall stainless steel keeps your drinks cold or hot
• Food grade safe 18/8 stainless steel (no metallic aftertaste)
• Finger hole provided for easy carrying
• Large ingredient cup allows for maximized flavor
• Wide mouth top allows for easy filling and ice cubes, if needed • Cushioned base through a soft rubber base pad to prevent slippage • BPA/EA-free Tritan plastics from Eastman
• Easy to clean • Reusable • Hot and cold liquid safe • Carbonated water friendly • 20oz Bottle*
Review I must admit I was a little skeptical when I first got asked to review the Aqua Zinger, I thought it might be another water bottle on the market that makes the taste of water slightly different. I was very wrong, this is no ordinary water bottle, and this is game changer!! Water can be very boring & bland, especially having 3 litres plus a day (as recommended). As we all know H20 is the best beverage for us; the vast amount of soft drinks available contain an obscene amount of sugar, so water really is the healthiest bet. The Aqua zinger is not only refreshing as a beverage but also refreshing to the mind to know only goodness is going into the body. The bottle and all of its parts are very well built and leaking is not an issue. The Aqua Zinger is an amazing product because it allows me to get creative and make my own flavoured water. I have been using various herbs, like basil and rosemary and grinding up fruits like strawberries and raspberries!! What a delicious way to incorporate more water into my everyday routine!! Thanks Aqua Zinger for allowing me to be healthier! The Aqua Zinger is a fantastic product and a must have for any gym-goer, fitness enthusiast, or sporty household.

HIGH DEFINITION UNVEILS ITS NEW HIGHRETURN SALON RETAIL SOLUTIONS FOR 2016
High Definition – the pioneering UK beauty group – has unveiled its new and improved retail packages for 2016 – available exclusively for its salon network.
The new packages are built around the brand’s bestselling 81-piece make up collection, created by High Definition CEO and founder Nilam Holmes-Patel and celebrity make up artist Francesca Neill. Launched in 2014 to meet the ever-evolving retail needs of salon owners and beauty therapists, the range – hailed as a ‘capsule collection for perfecting beauty’ – has proved hugely successful since its inception with more than 250 stockists in the UK alone. The new High Definition retail packages have been created to provide a definitive make up offering perfect for retailing in a salon and spa environment. With a firm focus on making salon retailing easy, the new retail packages have been developed to ensure salon owners not only see a profitable return on their investment, but also a new stream of customers through their doors, driven by the well-known and respected awareness surrounding the celebrity-loved brand. At the centre of the new retail packages is the striking display unit, which encases the full collection of make up and accessories. Taking inspiration from retail units found in high-end, premium retailers such as Harvey Nichols, Harrods and Selfridges, and exclusive only to High Definition-affiliated salons, these bespoke displays boast a stunning design that perfectly showcases the company’s well-known branding, with a multitude of benefits for the salon owner that wants to make an impact when adding retail to their salon or spa: • Dynamic product positioning that encourages customers to try out the products themselves with strategically placed mirrors for customer application • Eye-catching retailing messaging to drive customers to purchase • Interchangeable sections for new product introductions Head of Marketing for High Definition, Anna Pickford, said: “We understand that stylists and therapists often feel uncomfortable selling products to their clients, even when they know the client would really benefit from the products they are recommending. We also know that retailing is a huge part of a salon or spa’s income, which is why we’ve invested a huge amount of time in developing a new display that sells the products itself. Clients are instantly drawn to this striking unit filled with eye-catching products, which, once they test out – which they are encouraged to do – they’ll want to take home.” The eagerly awaited display units are available in two new packages complete with testers, with prices starting from £2,500 plus VAT. Also included in the initial starting cost are 1 retail-able unit of every product in the range, as well as an extra unit of every best selling brow product and accessory in the range – meaning the return on investment can be made back quickly once the display is installed. In addition, the High Definition team guarantees a complimentary and stress free set-up – delivering and constructing the display units within the designated retailing area on behalf of your salon or spa.
James Gammage, Head of Sales for High Definition, said: “We are excited to launch the new and improved retail packages to our existing salon network, and to those who are keen to become part of the High Definition brand. The new displays are in keeping with the new High Definition branding and achieve a premium look and feel, though most importantly, the packages we have designed are incredibly profitable for our salons.” In addition to the restructured Retail Packages, High Definition has also modified its Boutique Concession offering – the easiest and most cost effective way to introduce the brand, treatments and retail to a salon or spa. These include at least two training places on the High Definition Brows course, bespoke furniture, the instantly recognisable striped wallpaper and a full retail package – all delivered free of charge to create a beautiful, branded High Definition area to perform the brand’s treatments and retailing in style. Prices start from £4,250 plus VAT. Salons looking to find out more about the Retail or Concession Packages should call High Definition on 0844 801 3217. www.hdbrows.com
