Get ready for winter and the party season with Cuco Update your image NOW! Update your Image Instantly with Great Lengths 100% Natural Hair Extensions, they look extremely natural and come in a vast range of colours and can be styled just the same as your normal hair. As well as adding natural length to hair the extensions work well to enhance thickness giving it more volume and swing. So to add length, create volume or even to just add a splash of colour Great Lengths can do it all.

Condition, Condition, Condition Winter weather can wreak havoc on your hair. During the winter months, many people can have dry, dull, brittle hair. At Cuco we recommend Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair, a leave in treatment which instantly repairs and helps protect hair from heat styling. It detangles to protect from breakage and further damage, creating a healthier foundation to make styling easier.

Autumn/Winter Hair Styles In case you didn’t notice, the ponytail is back! There really is no need to do anything special with your ponytail a slick, mid-height pony is pictureperfect. This season’s buns are neat and tidy, but can also make a statement, why not try a knotted style. The sweeping side-fringe is also a big hit along with side-partings. Our favourite colours of the season are coppery reds, warm tangerine, icy blondes and earthy brunettes with glistening golds.

With the omission of a traditional grocery store and deli from our city for so long, it would seem that their offerings within the store are just what the people of Derby have been waiting for. The first shop, Jack Rabbits kitchen, continues to offer its home cooked meals, take away cobs filled with succulent roast meats, and will meet all your catering requirements, whether it’s a casual dinner party, a celebration, or you are looking to cater for large

numbers for weddings, christenings, birthdays etc. The new shop, headed ‘ The Peoples Grocer’ brings something very different to the city. Boasting a food Hall, Bakery, large dining hall, and coffee and patisserie bar, they combine the ingredients from across the stores to create a bespoke menu. The Grocery store stocks a wealth of everyday store cupboard essentials, supported by fresh fruit and vegetables which are delivered from the market daily. A superb range of more than 50 individual cheeses

Winter at Kedleston Hall Written by Jonathan Turley, Visitor Experience Manager at Kedleston Hall.

Now that winter is drawing in and the summer is a fading memory, many visitors to Kedleston Hall probably wonder what we get up to as the house closes for winter. Despite being a quiet time of year as one might think, it’s possibly one of the busiest! Our house team for example, will spend the winter covered in dust ensuring that every square inch of the house is cleaned. All the precious contents in the hall will receive a clean, and are inspected carefully against ‘condition reports’ which state where every mark is located on each object. This allows the team to check that they are not decaying in any way, and thus ensure their longevity for all to admire. I myself will be putting the finishing touches to the Christmas program which kicks off with our ever popular Christmas Craft and food fair on 26th & 27th November.

However, it is the following two weekends from 3rd December that everyone here is really excited about, as we are welcoming two beautiful reindeer as part of our Edwardian Christmas.

Each weekend will see part of the ground floor decorated in an Edwardian style, with many decorations having been made by our volunteers.

Children will have chance to visit Santa, as well as many Christmas crafts to make. The grownups are not forgotten either, with our wreath making workshops, Lecture lunches and carol concerts, as well as our shop offering a wealth of Christmas gift ideas, and seasonal fare in our restaurant. In fact it’s the perfect place to escape the high street and enjoy some much needed

Alphabet Interiors Now Open The Alphabet Gift Shop on Station Rd, Mickleover has branched out into furnishingsandhomeaccessorieswith the opening of its new showroom at Burnaston. Alphabet Interiors opened for business on Saturday 15th October at Grassy Court, Mickleover (off the A516 towards Hilton, just behind Burnaston garage and petrol station) The store is set out in showroom style to showcase collections of furniture, lighting, pictures, mirrors, soft furnishings, fabrics, wall coverings and home accessories in a range of styles. From solid oak furniture to French influenced painted pieces there is something to suit all tastes. Gorgeous upholstered sofas and footstools and a range of furnishing fabrics is also on offer. A bespoke upholstery service is available for those wanting a truly unique piece of furniture.

In typical Alphabet Gift Shop style there is a whole range of irresistible accessories, table and kitchen ware, linen and towels etc to add the finishing touches to your home and of course personalisation is always an option – even the new glass doors have been personalised! With the Alphabet Gift Shop fast approaching its 3rd anniversary the opening of Alphabet Interiors is a natural progression for the business. “When I’m on buying trips for the shop I constantly see lovely pieces of furniture and home accessories that I know our customers would love, but I haven’t been able to buy them before because we just don’t have the room at our Station Road shop – it’s been very frustrating!” said owner Sue Dorling “When we moved our offices, personalisation workshop and wholesale business to Burnaston

in May to allow for the extension of the Mickleover shop I could see that there was an opportunity to open a showroom for furniture and bigger home accessory items . . and its worked out beautifully. The new showroom also gives us the opportunity to showcase our own range of textile products to wholesale buyers in a lifestyle environment.” Opening hours for Alphabet Interiors are Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10am – 5.30pm with extended opening hours and shopping evenings planned for the run up to Christmas. For more information please call Sue on 01332 519033 or e-mail info@ alphabetinteriors.co.uk Alphabet Interiors 6 Grassy Court, Grassy Lane, Etwall Road, Mickleover, Derby. DE3 0BX.

Actu’Elle

The minute you step inside Actu’Elle hair salon, in Duffield, you are greeted by the friendly smiling staff, and the modern contemporary surroundings. Actu’Elle offers you all the luxuries of a city salon, and has a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere as soon as you enter. Dawn and Lisa took a huge risk back in 2009, when they left their jobs in one of Derby’s busiest salons, deciding to go it alone by opening their own salon right in the middle of a recession. The risk however has paid off, and the salon has since gone from strength to strength, and they now consist of a team of nine. Maria Gardner joined the salon in 2010, closely followed by Zoe Dudson, both extremely experienced and talented stylists. Their newest member of the team is Giselle Roberts, who brings a high level of skill and knowledge and is looking forward to welcoming new clients to the salon .

childcare An exciting new

development at The Elms

Nursery, part of The Elms

School and Trent College, Long Eaton.

The Elms Nursery is a private day nursery with a purpose-built

environment in the grounds of

The Elms and Trent College. The

children benefit from

extensive outdoor play

facilities, taking advantage of their beautiful 45 acre

grounds, spacious indoor

areas and the secure, calm

and stimulating environment. From September The Elms

Nursery extended its support to working parents by

opening 51 weeks a year, with even more

flexible drop off and pick up

hours which

gives both the parents and children

63

year-round continuity. A specialist baby care area for babies as young as six weeks

old will open in January 2012,

another exciting development for the nursery as The Elms bids to support even more

families in finding exceptional pre-school care.

Rated ‘Outstanding’ overall by the Independent School

Inspectorate (ISI), The Elms

Nursery is much more than a babysitting and play facility,

providing a fun, engaging age

appropriate curriculum to really stimulate and inspire the little learners.

For more information or to arrange a tour, please contact Patricia Robinson on 0115 849 4940

Wrapping Paper You will need: • 4 sheets of wrapping paper with different patterns or colours (or 4 pieces of wrapping paper cut from rolls to about 50cm by 1metre) • Glue (spray adhesive or glue sticks PVA / white glue won’t work as it will wrinkle the paper) • Hole punch • 2 paper fasteners per bauble • Wool or ribbon to hang

is to lay one piece on a flat surface, put glue across the top fifth and carefully line up and stick on the second piece. Continue to stick down a bit at a time. When dry trim the edges so you have two rectangles of paper.

of the strips and attach together with a paper fastener.

2. Cut these rectangles into strips.

Punch a hole in both ends of the strips. Bring one set of ends over the others to make a loop and fasten with the other paper fastener.

1. Pair the paper up and then glue each pair together with wrong sides facing. This is quite tricky to do to get the paper to stay flat and avoid bumps and is best done by an adult. The trick

Lay them in a pile, alternating the designs (you can either pick one pattern from each set so you are alternating two designs or use all four patterns). Punch a hole in the middle

Take four strips from each of the two sets of patterns.

Tease apart the paper strips so they open up to form a bauble. Tie a piece of ribbon or yarn to one of the paper fasteners to hang the bauble. Another Idea: If you would like to

Pop up Snowflake card You will need: 3 A4 Pieces of red card, 1 piece of white paper, colouring pens, collage materials for decorating. Fold two pieces of Card in half. One piece will be the outside of the card; one piece will be the inside On the inner card, make two short, parallel cuts along the fold line on the inner

again, cuts some small shapes to make the snowflake pattern. Make sure that it will fit inside the card when it is closed. Cut out another circle from the red card and glue this to the flaps on the card. Decorate the snowflake and once dry glue it to the circle on the card. Close the card.

3d Standing Christmas Tree You will need: 1. 2 A4 pieces of thick card 2. Collage materials for decoration Fold a piece of thick green card in half (lengthways), draw half a Christmas tree opposite the fold. Do the same with the other piece of card - you should get two identical trees.

Cut a slit around 12cm long from the top of one tree and from the bottom of the other tree. Slip the two trees together along the slits. You now have a 3d tree (it is recommended to first decorate your 2 tree pieces before joining them together.)

To advertise, please call us on 01332

Using clear tape, tape the bottoms and tops together (pieces of tape on the bottom and at the top make the tree stand up well and stop the slit ends from flopping over). Decorate your tree with crayons, markers, glitter glue, pom poms or tissue paper. Or you can glue on tiny
