Liverpool Lifestyle October 2022

Page 1



We’re well and truly in autumn and whilst the weather’s getting cooler, the temperature in the Lifestyle office is still cooking! We’re so excited about the Liverpool Lifestyle Awards and Liverpool Fashion Week this month. have you got your tickets? But that’s just for starters. It’s also Halloween and then the countdown to Christmas begins in our household.

I’ve just finished my first fitness bootcamp in Cyprus which I ran with my personal trainer, Papa Luckman. It was a huge success, and not as exhausting as I anticipated. I shouldn’t have been surprised

though as he has been training me intensively for the last three months.

If you missed out, don’t worry, we’re holding another one in April in Ayia Napa and if you can’t wait that long, we’re organising a New Year, New You fitness retreat in Manchester in January which will include lots of lovely pampering as well. All the details are inside the magazine.

If you’re worried about the economy this autumn remember that the best things in life are free - love, laughter and your health, so keep reminding yourself of all the good things in

your life and stay grateful and blessed.

Have a wonderful month and stay stylish!

Anthony Proctor - THEATRE

As the nights draw in and the signs of winter become more apparent, all of us in theatre set our sights on one of the most enjoyable parts of the year – Panto Season!

Family entertainment is one of our key forms of entertainment at the Epstein theatre and Regal Productions produce beautiful traditional family panto all year round. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful company who prioritise the best sets and costumes, brilliant dance and music and fabulous performances from the best actors around. We love to see children of all ages enjoying panto at the Epstein.

Pantomime is the UK’s most traditional artform, developed from the Italian Commedia dell Arte where stock characters told familiar tales in a comedic style in the middle of market squares. We have made Pantomime our own and the artform reflects not only our theatrical history with cross dressing characters such as the Dame and Principle Boy but also our history as a nation.

Like the country Pantomime is constantly changing but the key

ingredients are always there; comedy, music, a brilliant story, dance, lavish costumes, spectacular sets and thrilling entertainment!

At the Epstein this season

audiences have the chance to see two wonderful pantomime productions The Wizard of Oz for October half terms from Friday 21 – Sunday 30 October. The Wizard Of Oz is a much-loved classic story which really has stood the test of time, and continues to enchant each new generation in turn. It’s lovely to see children, parents and grandparents sitting together all enjoying the show. We’ve got a fantastic cast, fabulous costumes and sets, and a great story to tell. It’s going to be a wizard October treat.

And then our amazing Christmas Pantomime Goldilocks and the Three Bears. 2023. The circus comes to Liverpool and promises to be just right with its mix of unbelievable circus tricks, madcap comedy capers, Regal Entertainments’

high production values, and a smash hit selection of chart hits to sing and dance along to. Join Goldilocks this festive season who, with the help of the Three Bears, tries to save her Big Top from a rival circus owner! Get ready for a whole lot of family fun – it’s going to be panto GOLD! Starring Hollyoaks hunk David Tag as The Ringmaster, the wonderful Olivia Sloyan as Goldilocks, local superstar Timothy Lucas as the evil Baron Von Vippenall, the hilarious Brandon McCaffrey as Silly Billy and BTG’s Dame extraordinaire Mama G, supported by a phenomenal local cast of future musical theatre stars.

Epiphany Bliss/Hair & Fashion Show - Celebration of Cultural hair and fashion throughout time

DATE: Friday 14th October

VENUE: The Baltic Hotel

TIME: 7-10pm (After party 10-1am)

PRICE: £20 (£25 on the door)

Inclusive and empowering hair company, Epiphany Bliss brings fashion, music, and dancing together for a night of entertainment during Black History Month and Liverpool Fashion Week.

This catwalk event is not to be missed as it showcases the very latest collection of Epiphany Bliss’s on trend and unique handmade wigs and hairpieces to suit all styles and looks.

The event is in celebration of African and Caribbean culture however, this handpicked selection is designed to bring out natural beauty regardless of your ethnicity or background.


Nikki has worked in the hair industry for many years, lovingly handcrafting all her beautifully customised pieces. But her real inspiration for

Epiphany Bliss came from some of the distressful experiences her and her mother encountered during her mother’s battle with cancer.

Nikki said: “While my mother was undergoing chemotherapy, she began losing her hair and so she was given a voucher to buy a wig. Finding one to suit her was so upsetting as we soon realised there weren’t many places locally which made wigs for women of colour. My mother was a professional artist and fashion designer so not having much a choice to feel good in herself was heart-breaking.

“When she passed away, I was determined to start up my own inclusive wig company which is also sensitive to those experiencing hair loss for many different reasons

including those going through chemotherapy.

“I’ve always wanted to put on an event like this to honour my mum as I know she would be proud. Holding it during Liverpool Fashion Week and Black History Month couldn’t be more perfect.”

Lex Cosmetic Clinic has grown!


From launching and rebranding in April 2022, Alex Alexander has now launched her first franchise based in the East Midlands!

Proving that with the knowledge, talent and correct strategies, buisness growth and success is possible!

Lex Cosmetic Clinic has proven success with 3 finalist places in the Lifestyle Awards this year and also a place in the Diamond Beauty Awards in London.

Catering to students and clients across the Uk Alex’s success speaks for itself!

Not only has Alex launched several successful buisnesses, she has also become a mentor to help other achieve their goals. Through her buisness mentorship programme she has over 100 students/ buisness owners who have now overcome obstacles and changed their strategies for success!

Alex has also taken on a role in supporting more local charities.

As a Paediatric Nurse and a mother my heart is breaking for the lack of basic essentials the children in our city are experiencing. The news of children being killed with violence such as gun and knife crime cripples me. So I have to do something to support the families of our city. I have selected 2 local charities - Ava White Foundation and Aid to all. Aid to all is a non profit

organisation that are providing food across the city to children who have gone days without food even in schools as their families can’t afford to top up their credit. Ava White foundation is the family of a child who was killed at the hands of a knife in the city. Aiming to raise enough funds to provide bleed packs across the city to enable support in saving a life in the event of knife crime.

We are doing what we can to help raise funds and awareness

for both so if anyone would like to help please contact us.

Any success I achieve I like to use it to help others. I guess it’s the nurse in me.

If you would like a change in direction or interested in launching a buisness Alex is the answer. From Vicational trainjng to buisness strategies and white label buisness opportunities there really is an opportunity for everyone.

You can do anything in this life, and I can help you do it!

Lifestyle magazine held its first fitness bootcamp with Papa Luckman Fitness recently. The two day hardcore event in Ayia Napa was a huge success and another one is planned in the spring 2023

Well 12 months ago I did not expect to be actually in Cyprus writing my own Fitness column after successfully completing my first Papa Luckman Bootcamp. It has taken a lot of hard work and creativity. You cannot just rock up and lead 4 challenging 2 hour sessions, over 2 days, at 4 different locations without meticulous planning. On the day of the races you need to be on top of your ‘A’ game, you need to quickly assess everyone’s ability, truly understand how each individual is feeling every step of the way and work hard to keep the similes beaming even when the going gets tough……This is in a nutshell is what I call the Papa Effect, you really do need to experience it!

None of this would have been achievable without the mentoring and promotion that Amamadamosspr and Lifestyle Magazine have given me. Papa would like to say a big thank you.

3, 2, 1, back in the room and reality bites. The highs and lows of being active are real and do not go away following an attendance at a Bootcamp, fitness class, gym session, run or

walk. Even more so now that we are entering the winter months, darker nights, and the cost of living is rising. Maintaining that momentum through to 2023 is so important. This is where the mind-set of exercise really comes

into play, it is so easy to say ‘it’s nearly Christmas and I will start again in January 2023. If this is the only option for you then I would urge you to seriously consider the next Papa Luckman experience @Lifestyle Retreat in association with Amandamosspr.

It takes a matter of weeks to lose the performance gains you have made and before you know it will lose the motivation to start up again. If you do manage to get back on the exercise horse after

time out from your active routine, the next hurdle is the muscle pain you will go through to get back to where you were. This is a make or break point for a lot of people, it is unavoidable but the next session will not be so bad. If you know all this is coming, then you can plan your options to stay active. Reevaluate your goals for the next three months and choose something different to do. Consider the exercising at home option and doing short HIIT or strength based sessions (20-30mins), better still look at the option to work with a personal trainer to keep your focus and momentum. Always remember you have to enjoy your active lifestyle and accept that being active is not easy but remember the good times and what you have actually achieved already.

To help you with your journey through the winter months drop me a message or email for a free consultation.

Lifestyle Columnist, Actress, TV and Radio Presenter

Claudine Hope

Hello Darlings!

I couldn’t write to you this month without talking about the historic and sombre day that hit Britain when it was announced that our Queen had died.

I watched on television as Britons flooded the streets in grief and crowds wept outside Buckingham Palace.

I love the Royals and I personally felt a deep sense of loss watching the Queen’s funeral. This was the biggest historic moment of my life that I shared with my family.

The bidding process for the 67th Eurovision song contest has now confirmed that two cities remaining in competition to be the 2023 host are Glasgow and Liverpool. In August it was announced that seven cities had made the short list as candidate host cities. Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool,

Manchester and Sheffield. Further discussions are to take place with officials from Glasgow and Liverpool. The final decision will be made within weeks and I am hoping it will be Liverpool, the city that dances to its own beat, with contributions to the world music industry

Eurovision runner up Sonia!

Fingers crossed for Liverpool!

I’m getting ready for the Liverpool Lifestyle Awards, arguable one of the most glamorous events in my calendar. I can’t wait to get all dressed up and celebrate with everyone.Good luck to all the finalists, whatever happens, we’re all winners!

Please check out my new website at www.claudinehope. and give me a follow on Instagram: claudine_hope_

producing acts like The Beatles, Gerry and the pacemakers, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, The Lightning Seeds, Atomic Kitten and of course 1993

See you next month Babes!

So many times when I approach businesses to help them grow, I get the response that they’re either too busy so “don’t need to advertise” or too quiet and will advertise when things pick up.

If you’re busy you can’t be complacent and expect your customers to come back, you have to give them a reason to return. What if there’s a slump in the economy? Advertising brings you loyalty.

And if you’re quiet then you need to advertise to ensure you’re the first choice for customers to come to.

This is the thing about business. Consistent advertising ensures greater business success. End of. If it didn’t work you wouldn’t see repetition of adverts on the TV, radio and of course in magazines and newspapers.

Think advertising doesn’t work ? Tell that to McDonalds, Coca Cola and the endless brands that are etched in your mind as ones to choose.

Need new trainers? You’re bound to choose a brand like Under Armour or Nike or Adidas rather than an unbranded one. Why? Because advertising has persuaded you that these are the brands to trust for quality and delivering what they’re supposed to.

One-off adverts don’t work, people need reminding. Advertising gives your business brand loyalty and promotes a positive image, giving you greater exposure for you to target your customers. You may have a restaurant that isn’t busy. But you need to advertise regardless, for when your potential customer is looking for somewhere to go out for dinner, you’ll be the first choice they remember. Advertising makes sure that the consumer knows that when they are in need, your business will be there to help them. A continuous amount of consumers visiting your business is the first step to increase your sales. The more consumers you have, the more business you will

have. Advertising creates business now and in the future.

And advertising encourages repeat business, for once you have got your customers, they’re bound to come back if you’re providing a great service and product.

Ultimately, advertising makes your company money – It works. Advertising attracts customers to your business and increases your sales. When consumers see strong and positive advertisements they are more willing to buy and ready to choose your business. Invest in advertising for your business and you will watch it grow and succeed.

Advertising is about creating the desire for your customers. Which is why people love Lifestyle!

Talk to me about a bespoke advertising package to help grow your business. I can make you famous.

with your readers.

Impact of the menopause in the Workplace

With such a wide-ranging plethora of symptoms, the menopause can often be perceived in a negative way, and it is this way of thinking that needs to be challenged, especially in the workplace, where women can feel overlooked, embarrassed or struggle long-term.

The Office of National Statistics stated that in 2021, there were approximately four million women, aged between 45-55 in employment and according to the CIPD, ‘six in ten menopausal women say their symptoms have had a negative impact on their work.’ That is a huge proportion of the workforce that require extra support. According to FemTech Entrepreneur, Akiyo Takamoto, ‘data shows that one in two women decline promotion due to menopause’ Her interview with Deloitte brings to the fore that raising awareness in the workplace will massively

help support those women suffering, thus eliminating the taboo surrounding it.

What can be done to improve mindsets and attitudes of the Menopause

Awareness is Key.

To create ‘a menopausefriendly workplace’ all employers and employees should have the relevant training in how to correctly assist and support women living through the menopause. This could be through a variety of methods, such as workshops, podcasts, webinars or zoom calls, if remote. Workplaces

carry a duty of care to their employees, and by eliminating any stigma and supporting their staff, they could assist menopausal women to help ‘address stress and eliminate whatever stress you can.’ (Prof Susan Davis)

Engaging in Menopause Awareness Day will encourage inclusivity and support. Charity events, such as bake sales or group activities will open channels of communication, and social media is a great tool for spreading awareness and remaining current. (#worldmenopauseday)

By putting the wellbeing of menopausal employees at the fore, companies could reap the benefits of a happier and more varied workforce, a better retention of staff, and a company with an ethos of inclusivity.

World Menopause Day is observed on October 18 every year to raise awareness about the impact the condition has on the lives of women around the world

Liverpool Fashion Week welcomes Adedoyin Babalola,

a women’s wear Fashion Designer based in Abuja, Nigeria.

How did you hear about Liverpool Fashion Week? A friend mentioned it during a conversation then I searched on Google and also went on Instagram to find Liverpool fashion week. So it is a combination of word of mouth and social media.

What can we expect at the show from you? I will be showcasing African dyed fabrics in new textures and contemporary fashion forward designs that can easily transition from day to night.

What is your style? I find that my style can change from time to time, at the moment I am bohemian

How did you get into sewing? I have always been creative from childhood. My mum had a fashion design studio -though I didn’t learn how to sew from her – that gave me access to sewing basics. I used to play

on her sewing machine and try to sew different pieces of leftover fabrics together. I had an eye for beautifully produce fashion items, I remember making table mats from ropes as a child and hand bands from strands of mats and of course doll dresses. Making these items gave me a kind of joy that is unexplainable.

I just love to birth something out of nothing.

What inspires you? A number of things inspire me but top amongst them is making people happy.

The thought that a fashion item I have created will make someone happy, the thought that it would look great on someone and possibly increase their confidence and the sight of the beautiful contented smile that spreads across a clients face on trying out an attire makes me want to keep giving more and more.

In summary, I will say that people’s happiness inspires me.

What do you think is the hottest trend this winter? Cargo pants, recycled denim etc

What item in your wardrobe can’t live without? My Airforce one Nike trainers

What is your greatest ambition? To please God, to be a vessel for knowledge transfer - both formally and informallyand to become a global player within the fashion industry.

What is your greatest passion? I am passionate about the growth of African prints and Nigerian Tie and Dye in the fashion world. I am deeply passionate about saving our world by reducing the carbon footprint of the textile industry through recycling of hitherto condemned fabrics.

Where do you see yourself this time next year? On the pages of Vogue magazine, walking more international runways and building a global fashion business with customers all around the world. Having a huge impact in the fashion apparel recycling space and taking the recycling message to nooks and cranny of the world.

What is the worst fashion faux pax? The


example that readily comes to mind the day I wore a blouse inside out to church. I was in such a hurry that I did not take note of what I had on. It was brought to my attention by an usher in church and I quickly took a bathroom break to fix it. I can laugh about it now though it was quite embarrassing then.

Tell us about a typical day in your life? A typical day for me starts with spending time with my maker, putting in some exercise to stay in shape and jumping in the bathroom to freshen up. Then I go through my to do list and carry out any adjustment that is needed, I thereafter take the kids to school before resuming to work.

A normal work day sees me having a meeting with my team members to map out our day, working on the design of a new collection, drafting the pattern and getting a team member to create sample. Next is sample fitting, adjustments as necessary and finally mass production. I will also spend time with my students as well as checking on the status ongoing productions that were started days prior. In the midst of this I will go pick up the kids from and ensure they are settled in before returning to work.

I will also intermittently check our social media pages and ensure that regular updates have been posted and pick orders that could have

been received from our followers. We get a lot of sales from Instagram.

In between the schedule are activities like reel and content creation for our social media pages, client consultations, fabric sourcing, researching and creation of mood boards with sketches.

Because of the short distance between the house and my office, I get to pop in to check on the kids as well as close later than usual as the travel time is less than 2 minutes.

Lifestyle chats to Ivy Tettegah from iLORM

All the way from Washington DC and travelling to Liverpool Fashion Week this month... 26

How did you become a fashion designer?

Born and raised in Tema, my earliest memories of fashion were defined by the divide between traditional vibrant eclectic African prints against the influence of western apparel making. Moving to the USA as a young adult brought more appreciation for the value in traditional fabrics like kente, and the personalization of clothing often lost in the western models of garment making. My goal as a designer is to incorporate the traditional value of apparel making which appreciates both the craftsmanship and the garment. I believe awareness of this process will bring impactful change into the industry's unwholesome practices.

What is your style? Our design style is described as eclectic. It dwells on the interplay of textures, patterns and cultures.

Do you think there’s a difference in fashion trends between the USA and UK? Though similar in many aspects, Americans focus on comfort when it comes to fashion hence the huge drive towards athleisure. Fashion in the UK focuses on style.

What is your ethos about your style? Style

should enhance the natural body and help project the best versions of ourselves to our surroundings.

And the textiles you use? iLORM focuses on creating wearable art that is meticulously constructed to elevate kente; a handwoven textile made in Ghana by traditional weavers complemented by other ethically sourced fabric.

What trends are you excited about for autumn and winter? The fall trends I find exiting are the interplay of light with dark colours.

What excites you about your work? The opportunity to help impact people's lives either that of a team member and our customers' as well.

Who are your style icons? Audery Hepburn, Princess Diana, Jackie Kennedy

What has been your greatest achievement as a fashion designer to date? The opportunity to bring change to my team and the courage to pursue the dream. iLORM was created for the benefit of the community. As a brand, we pride ourselves in creating a space for local artisans, starting with our small team of tailors, pattern makers

and kente weavers in Ghana, who come from diverse backgrounds. We are happy our platform empowers and gives voice to communities often ignored and underrepresented in high fashion both in Ghana and the United States. Every garment is meticulously crafted to ensure satisfaction of customers who are also stakeholders in our community. Your decision to support us is meaningful and will impact the lives of many.

What qualities do you need to be a fashion designer? Fashion designers need to be forward thinking, persistent and creative.

Which celebrities have a great sense of style that you admire? Blake Lively, Zendeya, Alicia Keys

What 3 stable pieces do you recommend we should have in our wardrobe? Oversized blazer, straight leg jeans, little black dress( in any bold colour)

What is your favorite item currently that you’re selling? Our Anlo bustier is a favourite due to its versatility and striking kente pattern.




This is a time for streamlining your life, getting organised, and solving problems in practical ways. You benefit from a sense of stability as well as positive feedback from superiors. You are also more credible and reliable, which others appreciate. Romance blossoms nicely this month.


This is a time when you are more willing to take personal risks. There may be unexpected events that free you from confining situations or past conditioning patterns. You are more inspired this month, and your personality fairly bubbles with bursts of enthusiasm.


You would be able to bring more imagination to bear on your goals and ambitions now. It could be an excellent period promising much success in terms of love and relationships, provided you are willing to work on it. Long distance travel is also indicated with your beloved.


You are learning to rely on yourself and to take care of things that have undermined your confidence in yourself and in your life. You might find your ideals taking a more spiritual turn, thus involving you more in community and religious projects.


The urge for adventure and new experiences that introduce you to new cultures, beliefs, or feelings is likely very strong. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of your willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box.

VIRGO (23 AUGUST – 22 SEPTEMBER) Sudden opportunities to expand your horizons, such as through travel, adventure, or learning can arise and jolt you out of your routine. Many of you will be strengthening relationships and, while it’s not necessarily easy going, you’ll reap the rewards later.

LIBRA (23 SEPTEMBER – 22 OCTOBER) Major changes in the structure of your close personal relationships, and in your attitude towards them, are in store. You are more able to get in touch with your subconscious mind, and confronting your fears can be quite pleasurable during this period.

SCORPIO (23 OCTOBER – 21 NOVEMBER) This is a time for streamlining your life, getting organized, and solving problems in practical ways. Your deep awareness of keeping track of your health and taking better care of yourself and your own needs will help you harness some of your active energy.

SAGITTARIUS (22 NOVEMBER -21 DECEMBER) This period can bring closure or re-evaluation to issues you have been dealing with regarding learning, communication and personal projects. Love is working in your favour from but does encounter some questions. More opportunities for, and less restrictions on, leisure time are in store for you.


– 19 JANUARY) Your worldly goals may be watered down as you focus more on personal affairs. Some of you might be leaning towards a more spiritual, creative, or artistic career. Superficial areas of your life will


be removed or transformed, and you are freer to express your authentic self.

AQUARIUS (20 JANUARY – 18 FEBRUARY) Your long-term goals and wishes tend to be broad or ahead of the times just now. You may particularly enjoy dreaming up ideas for the future. You may discover new interests and desires that help you to rid yourself of attachments that no longer serve you well.

PISCES (19 FEBRUARY – 20 MARCH) Connections that further your career goals are made this month, and partnerships, social life, and career are all tied to one another. This is a favorable time for love and romance. You will develop new friendship which will be very rewarding and helpful.

Murphy’s Gin comes from fairly modest beginnings. Initially the personal passion of one brother with a background in chemistry, a wife who loves gin and a tiny 2 litre copper still. We have now grown into a small batch, artisanal distillery supplying exceptional products to some of the most highly rated restaurants and bars in the local area.

Like many Liverpool natives, our ancestry is traced back to Ireland. William Murphy, a young mariner, left Wexford harbour in 1889 with a dream of better life.

He arrived in Liverpool, which was then one of the greatest maritime cities on earth.

Fast forward 130 years and 4 generations later; and 3 brothers have now embarked on a different type of journey with Murphy’s Gin.

Being environmentally conscious, we have deliberately chosen bottles which do not use an excess of glass. This means that more bottles can be manufactured and transported with a lesser carbon footprint than if we used heavy bottomed glass bottles.

Our corks and paper labels are all sourced from suppliers with sustainability & ethical credentials, and all of our ingredients and packaging have been sourced from UK based companies.
