Call me old-fashioned. I’m serious – I love being a bit yester-year, especially when it comes to my products. I don’t mean powder puffs and rouge, I mean mixing up the latest formulations with a bit of age-old beauty knowledge. I always get excited when I find a product that has even more history than me, so I thought I’d share my five favourites with you.

First up is Pommade Divine (£20). I use this amazing balm every day, on me and the kids and on anything from dry skin to insect bites and spots to burns. It is possibly magical, and the formula is actually hundreds of years old. It even smells old-fashioned, of cloves and nutmeg and corsets. OK maybe not corsets. Get some though.

Pommade Divine

Next is from a site called Roullier White that I defy you not to fall in love with. I want everything they sell, but for now I’m going to tell you about Mrs White’s Rose Youth Serum (£25). Mrs White’s cleaning and beauty recipes were the result of 20 years of working as a maid in London’s grandest homes in the 1920’s. She concocted potions, gathered from her own experience, which really worked. This cracker uses rosehip oil as its hero ingredient.

Mrs White's

Olverum (£23.50) is a must-try bath oil created by a German wine merchant who made regular visits to his favourite spa in the mountains and was treated with a therapeutic bath oil. One year, he was told the bath oil was no longer available so on his return home he resolved to recreate it. In 1931, after two years of experimentation, he arrived at the current formulation, which is a wonderfully aromatic, stress-busting oil.

Olverum

Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion was developed nearly half a century ago. It was updated recently, and now Clinique has brought out a cream version of the iconic lotion (£25). I just love this – it’s one of those moisturisers that my skin just seems to drink up and say ‘thank you’ afterwards.

Clinique

Finally, another personal favourite that I actually didn’t know had been around so long. Philip Kingsley’s hero product, Elasticizer, was originally made for Audrey Hepburn, and now he has brought out a Geranium & Neroli version (£31.50) inspired by annual trips to Portofino – infused with neroli, geranium, lavender, rose and orange oils. Gorgeous.

GapHere at Stylenest we have always been big fans of GapKids and their designer collaborations in the past- Stella McCartney, Diane Von Furstenburg and last year Kate Spade. 

This time it’s the turn of American chat show host and comedienne Ellen DeGeneres who has teamed up with the retailer to create a line of children’s clothing in collaboration with her lifestyle company ED. The campaign aims to celebrate the things that make people different.

“Gap has always encouraged people to be themselves, and I love that they have the same values that I have: to be true to who you are and to wear cute pants,” DeGeneres told British Vogue. “I know from my own experience that nothing makes you feel better than being who you are and celebrating what makes you unique.”

GapKids x ED is an apparel collection and social movement supporting the strength and power of girls, encouraging them to embrace and celebrate their individuality. The campaign shines the spotlight on incredible youngsters, including professional skateboarders and drummers, a pint-sized entrepreneur, and a nine-year-old who works on creating prosthetic hands.

There’s a definite girl-power feel to the clothing line and two key pieces of iconography have been developed for the range which feature throughout- a lightning bolt (to represent power), and a speech bubble (to allow girls to find words of encouragement).

To coincide with the launch, a social campaign where girls can encourage one another and share their stories has been launched, using the hashtag #heyworld.

Prices range between £9.95 and £29.99 and the collection is now available at www.gap.co.uk and in all GapKids stores in the UK.

Online dating is great fun, but still instigates a maze of awkward messaging, sweaty palms and racing hearts as you start to talk to a potential date. It’s worse for guys, because they are expected to send the messages, while the girls sit back and watch the number in their inbox tot up. But for those guys out there, how do you initiate conversation and get the ball rolling (and not look like a creep?)

The Daily Mail has confirmed the top five chat up lines that apparently work while out in the field, but don’t worry, here are seven of the best opening lines you can use online, for when you muster up the courage to send out that first message:

  1. The line that notes one of their interests

Example: They have noted that they love heavy metal music in their profile and one of their pictures is of them at a festival, watching their favourite band. You’re also a fan, so send a quick message letting them know you have something in common, such as:

“Hey! When did you watch *insert band name here *? I love them!”

  1. The line that pokes fun

Example: They’ve included an unusual interest or pastime on their profile – maybe they are a huge Star Wars nerd or play bowls at the weekend – and they seem like they have a sense of humour (and if they don’t this line is a great way of testing the water):

“For someone who *insert funny interest here * you sure are attractive. Perhaps you could teach/show me sometime?”

  1. The tailored to the dating site line

Certain dating websites attract a certain type of person. Those signed up to Plenty of Fish are going to be looking for very different things, compared to people who pay for UK dating with MySingleFriend. Ensure your message meets their standards and goes with the site you are using:

If you’re using POF: “Hey, I didn’t think I’d see someone as beautiful as you on a free dating site! Are you having a good week/weekend?”

If you’re signed up to MySingleFriend: “So, who tricked you into letting them set you up a profile on here?” Then you could go into a little detail about who wrote your profile.

  1. The cheeky line

You just want her to know you think she’s attractive and you want to make her laugh while doing so:

“Hey, you’re almost as attractive as me! Maybe we should meet for drinks sometime to show off?”

  1. The complimentary line

Example: You can’t think of anything to say about their profile – maybe they were a bit lazy filling it in – but they’re so attractive you can’t just skip them by. A line like this should get the conversation started:

“You need to tell your parents they did a great job! I’ve never seen anyone so good looking.”

  1. The ‘to the point’ line

Example: You really want to see this girl, they like everything you do and look amazing, so you decide to send over a little line such as:

“Dinner and drinks, Friday night? I know a great place that does *insert food she included in her likes and dislikes section here.*

  1. The humorous line

Example: You want to show this girl that you’re funny. All girls love a funny guy, right?

“Hey! How’s your week/weekend been? I’ve had a busy one helping out at the soup kitchen, saving puppies and rocking babies to sleep, while talking with my sick Grandma on the phone at regular intervals.”

These lines should have the ladies falling at your feet (keyboard) while online dating, sign up for a site today and try them out!

Give Your Health a Boost with Natural Supplements and Vitaminshttp://www.stylenest.co.uk/lifestyle/health-and-fitness/give-your-health-a-boost-with-natural-supplements-and-vitamins/ http://www.stylenest.co.uk/lifestyle/health-and-fitness/give-your-health-a-boost-with-natural-supplements-and-vitamins/#comments Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:19:36 +0000 http://www.stylenest.co.uk/?p=95998 Most of us are only too well aware that eating a healthy, balanced diet is vital when it comes to our appearance, our weight, and our overall health.

Most of us are only too well aware that eating a healthy, balanced diet is vital when it comes to our appearance, our weight, and our overall health. It’s vital to ensure that you get the right vitamins and minerals in your diet, but unfortunately with the fast pace of life that many of us lead today this is a feat that becomes increasingly more difficult. While most people would love to be able to invest in nutritious fresh food and prepare delicious homemade meals, this is something that many people simply do not have time to do due to work, family and other commitments.

Of course, it is important to ensure that you eat as healthily as possible even if you do not have time to prepare home cooked meals with fresh ingredients. However, when you are on the go most of the time you will often find yourself skipping meals or simply having snacks, which means that you tend to miss out on the vitamins and minerals that you need for good health. This is where taking natural supplements and vitamins can prove invaluable, as they will provide the boost that you need in order to supplement to vitamins and minerals that you get naturally in your diet.

Choose from a range of vitamins and minerals to suit your needs

Our needs vary widely when it comes to the vitamins and minerals in which we are lacking, which is why there are so many different products you can select from these days. You will find a wide range of different supplements and you can get some great deals by getting discounts via sites such as VoucherBin. There are a variety of VoucherBin Stores that offer discounts on this type of product such as GoNutrition, Simply Supplements, and MyVitamins. When purchasing this type of product, it is important to ensure you buy through reputable and specialist retailers such as these for both safety and peace of mind.

Depending on the type of vitamins and supplements you select to aid your health and nutrition, there are various ways in which you can benefit. This includes health benefits such as:

  • Improved hair, skin and nails
  • Boosting metabolism
  • Increasing energy levels
  • Helping with weight loss
  • Enhancing the immune system
  • Aiding overall health

You can also get supplements that are designed for those who are trying to ‘bulk up’ such as those who take part in body building activities. Product such as those from LA Muscle are ideal for those involved in this type of workout and these are also available at discounted rates on VoucherBin.

Of course, you should always be careful about the ingredients in any vitamins and supplements that you purchase, as there may be ingredients that are not suited to you. For instance, many weight loss supplements may contain ingredients such as caffeine, which some people are sensitive to so it is important to ensure you choose ones that are not going to cause you any problems.

Spread EagleNestled deep within the South Downs National Park is a quaint little town called Midhurst. Historic and charming, it’s a picture perfect representation of rural Britain, and its old buildings and cute streets are testament to its well-preserved history. Midhurst is also home to The Spread Eagle Hotel – a gorgeous old coaching inn dating back to the 1430’s (Shakespeare and Queen Elizabeth 1st even stayed here!)

The Spread Eagle is beloved in Midhurst and beyond for many reasons; the character of its many traditional rooms, locally sourced and lovingly prepared produce, and also it’s small but perfectly formed spa. The hotel have recently launched exclusive Yoga Wellness Retreats, led by teacher Elaine Vaughan, to allow you to learn a little more about yoga and to experience the luxurious spa for yourself. When the team here at StyleNest were invited along to check it out, we couldn’t resist.

Stepping back in time

Arriving at the hotel just before midday, we were immediately won over. From the outside it’s fairly small and unassuming (albeit still picturesque), but inside it simply oozes character. From the old wooden beams supporting the low ceilings to the historical artefacts lining the walls and traditional, grand four poster beds tempting you to take a nap, the Spread Eagle is the antithesis of a faceless modern hotel. It’s proud of its rich heritage, and it celebrates it in every detail. The result is warm, cosy and inviting.

An introduction to yoga

After checking into our rooms, we settled down for an introduction with Elaine and a talk on health and wellness. Having practised yoga for the last 30 years, Elaine is not only knowledgeable on her subject but also has such a gentle, approachable manner that you want to listen to everything she says. There was a mixture of couples and individuals in attendance, meaning no one felt left out or out of place.

Over fresh juices, Elaine introduced the retreat and talked to us a little bit about the benefits of yoga – but also what makes a holistically healthy lifestyle. We were encouraged to guide the discussion ourselves, and I felt like we all came away having learnt something.

After a hearty lunch and some free time to explore (in other words, to lose ourselves within the charmingly labyrinthine rooms and hallways of the hotel) it was time for yoga. The session was restorative – meaning it was less strenuous and dynamic than ‘normal’ yoga, and was geared more towards relaxing our bodies and minds. For this reason, I think the retreat is perfect for those who have never tried yoga before, or who are getting back into it after an absence – it isn’t as intimidating or full on as I think a lot of other retreats can be. And as it’s only 24 hours long – it’s the ideal way to dip your toe in the water!

A world of relaxation

When we were feeling serene and well stretched, it was time to head down to the spa to enjoy an indulgent treatment. All of the treatments are designed to help you relax and to soothe any tired muscles. If you’re anything like us, you rarely take time out purely to dedicate to yourself, so being pampered in this way feels truly special as well as immensely healing. We opted for the “Media Drift Away Massage”, which was a 30 minute treatment for the shoulders, back and neck (why oh why do massages never last long enough?).

We were feeling seriously chilled at this point, so decided to relax by the huge pool. The pool area is spacious and relaxed, and has that indulgent spa atmosphere in abundance. A quick dip in the pool (which features a giant mosaic of the eagle emblem along the bottom), and we’d just about worked up an appetite for dinner.

But first, it was time for another talk from Elaine – and this time it was more focused upon food. We covered topics such as clean eating, diet and the benefits of raw produce. The great thing about Elaine is that while she obviously knew her subject inside out and had very strong views, she didn’t force these upon anyone. It really felt like we could take away with us what we wished from the session, depending on what would fit realistically into our everyday lives. After a light dinner in the evening (and yes, we had dessert!), we had one of the best sleeps we’ve had in a long time.

Day two of the retreat

The second day began with a 30 minute breath work class. Elaine taught us about the importance of breathing properly and how it can not only make you feel more awake and calmer, but can combat illness and disease, too. We discussed what we’d learned over a long and leisurely breakfast in the Spread Eagle Restaurant, before attending our final yoga class of the retreat.

This class was a lot more dynamic, and was classic Hatha yoga, involving us holding a number of asanas (poses) designed to strengthen and tone muscles and bring the body back into alignment. The class was challenging, but Elaine made sure that everyone was comfortable. She reassured us that it didn’t matter if we couldn’t hold the poses for ages, or if we found it difficult at first – part of the joy of yoga is enjoying journey between the poses; moving with grace and bringing the body in line with the breathing.

The real value of retreats

As we took to the mats for Savasana (meditation), the energy changed and I could feel our minds begin to wander and settle on more tangible topics –the journey home, what we’d eat for dinner that night, our workloads in the coming week. We already missed the gentle serenity the retreat had offered us, a relaxed space dedicated completely to relaxing and restoring ourselves. It was then that we began to comprehend the real benefit of a yoga retreat – yes, you’ll have an expert introduction to yoga. You’ll learn more about taking care of your body, and you’ll probably have the best night’s sleep you’ve had in a while.

But the real benefit, we think, is the act of simply dedicating some real time to your own health and well-being. Saying: “hey, this is pretty important”. We suppose the gorgeous 15th century interiors and delicious food at the Spread Eagle don’t hurt, either!

The Yoga Wellness Retreat at the Spread Eagle Hotel and Spa costs £299 for single occupancy and is fully inclusive.

ImbeberyImbibery, one of the UK’s leading cold-pressed juice companies, have released a number of delicious game changers to the market that will have even the most sceptical of anti-juicers gulping down some cold pressed delights!

Founded by Lily Rogath and Meryl Zises, two best friends who met in the nexus of health that is New York City, Imbibery was born from a mutual desire to provide cold pressed juices and nut mylks to the increasingly demanding and health conscious London market.

Offering a number of cold pressed, raw and unpasteurised juices, from the greenest of green Chloro juice to their fiery Spicy Lemonade that is designed to kick start the system, these girls have stormed the market. There is no worry about having to adventure to your local juicer, Imbibery offers deliveries of a daily Juice Pack, cleanses or the option to pick up a Juice at various stockists including the popular Psycle spinning studios and Gail’s bakery locations across London.

Yet what has got StyleNest really excited is their recent collaboration with Belvedere Vodka. Sent to the office in an ultra-sleek Imbibery branded ice bag, the team were sent a mini bottle of Belvedere and two cold pressed cocktail mixers to sample. Being a Friday afternoon, we couldn’t resist!

The Greenacolada, a mixture of spinach, coconut water and pineapple teams perfectly with the clean and sharp Belvedere and it tastes just like a virtuous green juice yet with the added euphoria that comes with the first sips of that Friday after work cocktail! The Hail Mary a combination of tomato, cucumber, beet, lemon and cayenne pepper is fiery but also refreshingly smooth. It is the perfect Bloody Mary, and no tabasco or horseradish is needed to jazz this up.

The choice to join forces with Belvedere over any other vodka brand makes sense, crafted from 100% select Polish rye vodka and free from additives, this pioneering combination is the freshest way to enjoy a cocktail, with no sugar crashes, guilt or deathly hangovers that can creep up on you after one too many sugar laden cosmos. Claire Smith, Head of Spirit Creation at Belvedere Vodka says, “Today we are aware of the harmful effects of overindulgence from not just alcohol but from sugar and artificial flavours. We are delighted to partner with the Imbibery, which provides a wonderful array of cold pressed juices which are free from concentrated flavours and artificial sweeteners. These juices can upgrade your drinking experience away from mainstream mixers which are often full of sugar and hidden additives.”

And to make it even better, the mixers are created using special high pressure processing technology, which means that each bottle has a shelf life of 1 month, so keeping a stock pile in the fridge for those necessary occasions is easier than keeping any other fresh juice. There is really no excuse!

Accompanying our cocktails were a few of the Imbibery shots – The Hot Shot, The Tumeric Kick plus two pure 100% freshly pressed Ginger and Lemon bottles. We assume that these were sent to cure our hangovers, but in fact the purity of the cocktail mixers left us with no headaches or bad moods – we’ve found the hangover cure ladies! Regardless we all devoured the shots, adding the ginger and lemon to all our teas and even salad dressings! The Tumeric Kick was a favourite, a HOT combination of turmeric, ginger, apple cider vinegar and H20 this little tangerine coloured bottle gave a kick no caffeine boost could ever compete with!

As if they haven’t already transformed the expectations for juice brands out there, the girls have also introduced a new juice/soup – the Imbibery Gazpacho. Although it is marketed as a juice, it is more like a soup – thick yet smooth, sweet yet savoury, they have nailed the gazpacho recipe. A blend of tomato, bell pepper, cucumber, apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, Himalayan salt and pepper it is honestly heavenly and the perfect summer lunch on the go!

The cold pressed cocktail mixers and Gazpacho are priced at £6, shots at £3.50 and cleanses for one day cost £85. For more information and to order online check out www.imbiberylondon.com

Every year many of people visit Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England. Some people just travel and want to get acquainted with the town of Victorian architecture and home to the rugby league team, Huddersfield Giants. Others come to enter the University of Huddersfield and experience a wonderful life in student accommodation Huddersfield. But the main reason wherefore this town attracts people as a magnet is music. Here is a guide to upcoming music events.

Ukulele lessons

Ukulele, or uke, is an instrument resembling a small guitar. It is getting more and more popular in UK. The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain playing music on the ukulele and giving concert tours makes a big contribution to popularizing ukulele. If your dream is to learn playing this instrument, Huddersfield comes in handy. Every week in Beaumont Parks the teachers give ukulele lessons. No doubt, that will be great entertainment.

The Pretend Beatles concert

I guess there is no person who is indifferent to the timeless music of the Beatles. And The Pretend Beatles band’s aim is to refresh the songs of this legendary ‘Fab Four’. Their show will be held on the 22nd of August 2015 in the Barge, Brighouse.  You’ll enjoy 30 songs of Beatles and have a great time.

Lucy Ward and Band concert

The 28th of September 2015 Marsden Mechanic Hall will house a great show of Lucy Ward who is BBC Folk Award winner and a new band. This concert in Huddersfield is a part of her tour promoting the third album, ‘I Dreamt I Was A Bird’. Lucy Ward’s magic voice and a talent of a new band is a guarantee of a wonderful evening.

Marsden Jazz Festival

Marsden is a picturesque village that is 6 miles away Huddersfield. Every year festival goers from Yorkshire and other corners of Great Britain come here to spend an unforgettable jazz weekend. In 2015 this festival will be held from 9th to 11th October. Marsden is ready to host more than 5000 jazz lovers and assure comfort.
