Gin Trends 2019

Cristina Diaconu By Posted on 3 m read

The gin renaissance, ginaissance if you like, has been in full swing for a few years now, and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon.

Yes, as a nation who’s taken to the drink once described as ‘mother’s ruin’ with arms wide open, it seems like the tonic industry will be kept afloat for another year yet. So beloved is this tipple that last year it was more popular than David Beckham, The Beatles and Wimbledon on Twitter, with more than 8.4 million tags. Who doesn’t like a good gin selfie?

In fact, gin sales were up by 38% in 2018 too.

But, with its popularity ever increasing, what are the gin trends for 2019? Well, we’ve gathered a few of them together just for you. So, sit back, relax, grab those gin glasses and get ready to see 2019 through with these fabulous gin trends.

New flavours

The first, most important and most exciting part of the gin trends this year are the new flavours making their way to the shelves.

We may love a classic G&T, but who doesn’t love a new flavour.

New delights this year include flavours inspired by classic sweets such as Parma violets, Bakewell tarts and rhubarb and custard, alongside bubble gum, lemon drizzle, rhubarb and ginger, salted caramel, berry pink gin, plum, cinnamon, pomegranate and rose, and even passionfruit liquors. That’s quite the addition to the gin shelf.

All we can say is – move over pink gin!

Garnish

But it’s not just the flavours that are switching things up this year, oh no, it looks like the garnish on, or in, your glass is also getting a fresh twist.

This year it looks like people are moving away from just a typical bit of fruit or veg in the glass, and opting for more cocktail inspired additions. So whereas it was once limes, lemons and even cucumber, this year, don’t be surprised if you find peaches, a wide variety of berries and even coriander or liquorice.

Craft gin

We’ve all heard of craft beer. In fact, craft beer has had quite a boom in the last few years. But, this year, it looks like craft gin will also make quite the splash.

With so many names out there, smaller, more artisanal brands, using classic botanical, alongside unique and delicious flavours are set to boom. This could explain all the new flavour.

So, if you want something a little different, just keep your eyes open next time you hit the shopping aisles.

Make your own

Finally, we’ve all heard of making your own beer and wine, but now you can add gin to that list.

With many distilleries and gin schools popping up, you can go along and mix up a gin or two to fit your needs, before having it bottled and taking it home with you – perfect.

So, make sure you have plenty of ice at home because it looks like 2019 is set to be an even bigger year for gin.

Travelling in Luxury: Beauty Essentials for the Plane

While on your vacation you will always want to look and feel your best. This means that you need to think about the beauty products that you take with you so that you can keep up your skincare routine and apply your makeup no matter where you are. Here are a few must-have beauty products which you could even take on the plane for long haul flights.

Dry Sheet Mask

A dry sheet mask is perfect for the plane because you do not have to worry about taking on a liquid and it is quick and easy to apply when say in your seat. You can then take it off after around 15 minutes and your entire face will feel fresh and healthy.

Soothing Balm

A high-quality soothing balm is perfect for long-haul flights because it can be used for a few different purposes and provide much-needed relief. It could be used to help combat chapped lips or simply on your skin to stop it from drying out which can be a real problem on long flights.

Hand Cream

Leading on from this, a good hand cream will be helpful while travelling particularly on long flights. Additionally, if you purchase one which is gel-based it should mean that the skin absorbs it quickly so that you can continue to use your hands.

Eye Serum Pack

An eye serum pack is a good idea for a long flight because it can reduce puffiness and hydrate the area around your eyes while helping to block out the light if you are trying to catch some shut-eye.

Face Wipes

Face wipes are a quick and easy way to freshen up which makes them great for any form of travel. They can also be used to remove makeup if you are wearing any or simply as a way to wake up after a nap.

Travelling Packs

You can also buy beauty packs for travelling from places like Neom Organics. These are ideal because they will provide you with everything that you need to stay looking and feeling your best on a flight or during any kind of travel. It can be hard to stay fresh while on the move but made much easier with these convenient travelling packs.

Travel can certainly take its toll which is not ideal if you want to look your best and feel fresh during the trip. The key is to think about the best beauty products that you can take on and use on the plane with ease and to pack these in your bag and try to stick to your beauty regime where possible. This should help you to feel much better and look great even on an uncomfortable long haul flight.

Launch of ‘PRACTISE HOPE’

Suicidal and self-harming children and young people will be the focus of a new, ground breaking initiative called ‘Practise Hope’ to help more of them get better support from their doctors’ surgeries. The launch takes place on Thursday, July 4th, at the Holiday Inn, Gatwick.

The 18-month pilot is a collaboration between Olly’s Future, Mind and Health Education England. Thirty GP practices across Kent, Sussex and Surrey will be involved. They will be supported by three local Mind branches* and each receive £1,000 to help implement new ways of working to bring about a culture change in primary care to better support distressed ten to 25-year-olds. It is hoped the pioneering programme will be rolled out nationally after the pilot.  

At the heart of ‘Practise Hope’ is Oliver Hare, from Worthing, who took his own life in February 2017, two days before his 23rd birthday. His mother, Ann Feloy, is founder of Olly’s Future – www.ollysfuture.org.uk – which raises awareness of young suicide and prevention.

Ann said her son went for the first time ever to see his doctor feeling depressed and anxious in early January 2017 and a few weeks later was prescribed an antidepressant by another doctor over the phone. Oliver took his life after just four days of taking the SSRI.  

She said: “I know from tragic experience what improvements could have helped my son. Oliver was such a kind and compassionate person and would have contributed so much to this world had he lived. It is of some comfort to know that, with vision and ambition from all those involved, this initiative will help others in his memory. As Patients Care Lead for ‘Practise Hope’ I have the chance to work with GP practices, bereaved parents, carers and young people to help shape those ideas.” 

Ideas could include young people’s clinics and focus groups, use of apps, ‘opt in’ procedures to alert other family members and training for GPs and surgery staff dealing with parents who have lost children to suicide.   

Dr. Geraldine Strathdee CBE, former National Clinical Director for Mental Health, NHS England and co-founder of Zero Suicide Alliance, will be the keynote speaker at Practise Hope launch briefing the launch.  Courtney Buckler, 24, and Harees Khalique, 23, who have had thoughts of suicide and self-harmed since teenage years will also be speaking.  

Cavita Chapman, clinical advisor at Health Education England working across Kent, Surrey and Sussex, said: “It’s estimated that around a third of those who die by suicide in England were in contact with primary care services but not specialist mental health services. In recent years, the number of young people taking their own lives has increased. We want more children and young people to feel they can turn to their local GP practice for help and for those practices to respond effectively and with compassion.” 

Dr Sam Fraser, Clinical Lead for “Practise Hope’ said that suicide is the leading cause of death in young people, accounting for 14 per cent of deaths in 10 to 19year-olds and 21 per cent of deaths in 20 to 34-year-olds. (National Confidential Inquiry). Statistics show that suicide, in children and young people, is on the increase across England and Wales. (NSPCC 2018). 

GP practices will win the PACE setter Award for Suicide Prevention and Self Harm if they carry out a self- assessment audit of their safeguarding procedures and an engagement exercise with at least one per cent. of their target population of children and young people with thoughts of suicide or who self-harm, as well as half of their staff on the issue of their own well-being.   

Three additional activities must also be carried out and it is up to the GP surgeries to be creative and pioneering in reaching out and responding to children and young people. They will then be expected to share their new ways of working with other GP practices.

3 Things Londoners Should Do at Least Once

Cristina Diaconu By Posted on 3 m read

Londoners are lucky enough to live in one of the best cities in the world. However, not all those who dwell there have experienced everything the city has to offer. Keen to avoid a touristy lifestyle, some of them actively avoid any of the things that London is famed for. It’s understandable, as much of it is the antithesis of a ‘homely’ atmosphere. 

Still, Londoners have £8000 more than the average UK resident, so a series of memorable experiences is surely called for if its more affordable! But what are they? 

Consequently, here’re three things all Londoners should do at least once. 

Visit all the landmarks 

Many Londoners get comfortable inside their own little bubble. If this is you, then it’s kind of understandable, as no doubt long days spent at work are arduous at times. Still, you should endeavour to get out there and visit as many landmarks as possible, because they hold a lot of symbolism for London and often serve as its most iconic imagery. 

Big Ben, The London Eye, Nelson’s Column, St Paul’s Cathedral and more should all be visited at least once each. Even if you reside on the fringes of greater London, you’re only a quick tube ride away from having a series of impressionable viewings of these great landmarks. People pay ludicrous sums of money and travel all the over the world to see them, and if it’s practically on your doorstep, it’d be a painstaking tragedy to miss out!  

Go to the theatre

In the age of Netflix and affordable internet subscriptions, something like the theatre likely doesn’t appeal to the average Londoner. However, London obviously has the West End, a place where the best stories are performed by some of the best actors, directors and artists in the world. If you love stories, you love the theatre!

Additionally, if you go to a matinee show, you’ll find seats are far more affordable. Some theatres and shows also have nights where they perform for people with specific disabilities or mothers with babies. They’re opening their doors to everyone, so no matter your situation, you can squeeze into a theatre at some stage. It’d be a shame not to if the West End is so close by!

Cruise down the Thames 

It’d be difficult to live in London and not walk down the Thames at one time or another. Still, that’s not everything the capital’s great river has to offer. You can also undertake a cruise trip right down the middle of it, experiencing the winding waters in a whole new way. There’s even a Thames dinner cruise with a range of exquisite drinks and meals to be enjoyed also! 

If you’re strapped for time to do all the usual London things, this is a great way to fit things in; you can have your tea as you sightsee and explore! It’s almost a dabble in luxury too, and if you take a few friends and family along with you, you’ll have a truly memorable time. The backdrop of a lit-up London behind you as you chat and laugh, drifting calmly through the waters; what could be better? 

Conclusion

London is more accessible than ever. It’s a city that’s there for everyone regardless of whether you’re a resident or a tourist, and activities for both intersect. It’s all in celebration of a great city that celebrates diversity and inclusivity, so be sure to give everything a go!

Getting the Best with LED Glow Shows

Cristina Diaconu By Posted on 3 m read

Trying to come up with entertainment ideas for a corporate function is not as easy as people might image. There is a balancing act of budget, style, amusement and offense factor – and the levels of each will vary depending on your audience. So, what worked really well and received glowing reviews for the young bankers’ conference may not be the best form of entertainment for the celebration dinner for 100 years of excellent nursing. 

People can be very judgmental when they are attending an event, particularly a dinner event, how long they wait for food to come to the table, the type of food and it’s presentation, how often they are left without water on their table, these are all the top complaints that any conference dinner organizer knows well. Try and avoid giving your dinner goers time to bond over a unified dislike.

Entertainment Is Key

One of the big things that can really make or break a dinner event is the entertainment provided. Trying to find something that is going to work for a range of people and make your event memorable is challenging, but there are so many amazing options that just require you to think a little outside the box, and let technology help you

So, one of the truly spectacular entertainment options available is glow or fire shows. Companies like Smoking Hot Productions have created entire sets of visual delights that can entertain a crowd for a few minutes or for a full show. Because these shows are working with completely programable light displays, they can be used to create not only awe-inspiring dances, but also to incorporate branding or logos within the show. It seems to be a quirk of human nature to be delighted when they see something relatable but unexpected like your organization’s logo up on stage.

Working With Your Setting

Obviously, these types of shows are best seen from a darkened, indoor, setting, but because of the nature of any type of circus act venue managers can sometimes be a little concerned about potential damage to their setting. This is one of the reasons why it is important to hire a group who is experienced at working within the confines of different stages and settings. Some groups are really only used to working in a certain type of space or are normally outside fire & circus performers who are making the change to working in an indoor space, so it is a good idea to speak to the company and ask them to visit the venue with you. 

When you are at the venue talk with the group, and if you can have the venue manager at hand as well, to explain what space they will have and ensure that you and the venue will be able to provide everything they need for a great show. If you are having a seated dinner you will need to discuss where the tables will be laid out (see here for ideas), and if there is no specific stage space set up you can work out where you will put a performance space. 

Setting The Scene

Some performers will be able to create a visual show that allows them freedom to interact with your guests, or to make an entrance through the seated attendees, while others will have a show planned out that is non-interactive. If you have a clear idea about what you want, or any aspects that you want to ensure occur, such as logo display or brand colors, be sure to discuss this right from the very beginning. However, take the advice and recommendations from the professionals on board, as they will have suggestions to ensure that what you want is going to be achievable and look visually amazing. 

Wow Factor

LED entertainment is becoming so popular because it really is exciting to watch. Everyone loves the light spectacle, and when combined with music and dancing or acrobatics it becomes an event that everyone will talk about. With acts like Ann-droid that travel the world delighting audiences with their quirky LED show https://www.odt.co.nz/news/arts-festival-dunedin/lovebirds-bring-robot-girl-life, and the ability of LED shows to be customized to fit the needs of each event, glow shows and LED spectaculars are an amazing option to wow at any event.

A Guide to Choosing the Perfect Wedding Shoes

Cristina Diaconu By Posted on 3 m read

The killer question you might be asking yourself to lead up to your big day is should I wear high heels? And if so, how high? What style should they be? How much should I spend?

We understand it is a big decision for your big day. We suggest putting some thought into it as the heel height and design you choose may have an impact on how comfortable you are throughout your wedding day. You will more than likely be on your feet for 10-12 hours, so we suggest going for a heel height you are familiar with – and it goes without saying that flat shoes and kitten heels are without a doubt the most comfortable choice of footwear.

We have put together this guide to choosing the perfect wedding shoes that are right for you and your big day – take a look at the different options below:

Platforms

If you are a petite bride or your groom is just extremely tall then you may wish to opt for a platform shoe. These are also a great option in making the high heel shoe easier to walk in as the platform offers support and extra cushioning making the heel feel less high. A covered platform shoe is a modern fashion style for bridal footwear.

Stilettos

Most brides will choose the elegant stiletto no matter what pain comes with it. High heel wedding shoes are perfect for brides who are already used to wearing these types of shoes, and we would recommend wearing a heel height you are most accustomed to. If you have decided on a large style Princess dress for your special day then a high heel could be the right option for you as they provide an excellent posture. Other types of dresses that require a bit of height are fishtail dresses or floor length fitted gowns.

Mid Heel

Perhaps you are not brave enough to commit to the high heel stiletto so you could try something in between. Mid heel wedding shoes with a heel height between 7-8cm are a great choice for brides who are used to wearing heels but may not wish to wear a long gown. Mid heel wedding shoes can provide comfort for the whole wedding party, not just the bride. Wedding guest, bridesmaids and the mother-of-the-bride can all benefit from this style. Try a peep toe or court shoe with mid heel to add a formal finishing to any outfit.

Flats

You and your groom may be of similar height and so flat wedding shoes might be an option for you. Not being able to wear high heels could also be due to medical reasons, but designers have provided so many beautiful flat bridal shoes to compliment your dress you would not notice the difference. Whether you choose a flat bridal pump, peep toe or ballet style shoe, take them along to your bridal fitting to adjust the length of your dress accordingly and get ready to dance the night away! Flat shoes often come at a much more affordable price too, check out these cheap flat shoes from Uppersole for a range of designs.

Kitten Heel

Struggle to balance in high heel stilettos. Not a problem. A short kitten heel wedding shoe could be the one for you. Try a tapered, cone-shaped or block heel style and this will give you the posture you need to complete your graceful bridal look. Kitten heels are a great all-rounder – a more practical option but still add elegance to your ensemble. You can try an assortment of kitten heels from courts, peep toes and sling backs that can be perfectly paired with a shorter wedding dress.

Block Heel

Looking back at previous wedding shoe designer collections, the trendy retro inspired block heel made an appearance a few years ago. This shoe option is ideal for brides who require extra stability when it comes to footwear. Block heels are easier to walk and stand around in, especially when waiting for photographs on your wedding day. Most block heels also come with a strap to add even more support. So, this comfortable and fashionable combination might be the choice for you!

Sports Influence at Men’s London Fashion Week

Cristina Diaconu By Posted on 2 m read

A few weeks ago, the world’s fashion photographers, journalists, bloggers and buyers all flocked to the capital of the UK to witness first-hand the new collections from some of the best designers in the fashion industry. London was lit up with dapper gentleman and sophisticated women for London Fashion Week Men’s spring/ summer 2020 collection. One key trend at Men’s London Fashion Week was that of sports wear and the ‘laid back’ summer vibe. We wanted to bring you a low down of the highlights and influence behind some of the key S/S 2020 looks…

Sports Shorts

Sports shorts made several appearances at this year’s men’s Fashion show. E. Tautz incorporated the physical garment as part of his menswear S/S 2020 collection along with Lou Dalton whose models sported technical fabric shorts, as well as new Performance and Design graduate Saul Nash who reflected bodies in motion with a sensual, sportif approach, taking on new shapes with curved zips on tracksuit pants.

Colours

Shades of berry red, juicy tangerine and crisp white denim filled the room. A light and floral feel filled the space this year as well-made designs flooded the runway in a sea of appetising colours and fabrics.

Short Sleeve Shirts

Short sleeve shirts shared some of the limelight too. E. Tautz shared a collection of chic Dolman sleeved garments whilst Band of Outsiders also opted for spacious short sleeve shirts and Saul Nash lined sleeves with zips to showcase his sportif look.

Summer Holidays

There was an apparent theme highlighted during the show. Characters took a playful stance demonstrating a summer pool party vibe with Band of Outsiders West-coast laid back Bermudas who quoted: ‘it’s about summer. It’s about having fun!’ Saul Nash also brought the summer holidays to mind with a young and carefree collection. Dalton took a more polished approach, inspired by open air affairs and visualising a young Prince Charles on his summer holidays.

Showerproof Outerwear

In line with his open air affairs, Dalton also produced reversible, showerproof outerwear with coat and jacket brand Gloverall and was a perfect fit for the unpredictable British weather.

Sport your very own Fashion Week ensemble this season. Opt for some golf shorts for men from Function 18 to recreate a relaxed and easy-going look on your summer holidays whilst staying true to current men’s fashion trends and styles.
