Brookes Basks In Heatwave But Urges Caution With The RASH Guide From Outdoor Look

As we begin to enter the primary summer months, many across the UK will ensuring as much free time as possible is spent outside in the sun. Although obvious enjoyment is had across a range of outside leisure activities such as hiking, camping and fishing, unfortunately each summer sees a new wave of casualties who have become victims to heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

As emergency services will be called to hiking trails and walking hot spots across the country, Ian Brookes – founder of leading discount outdoor clothing specialists outdoorlook.co.uk – has once again laid the spotlight on the brand’s summer safety guide – RASH.

Established last summer, the guide brings to attention a 4-point-plan which can easily be understood by adults and children alike this summer;

REST – Remember to rest at regular intervals if your activity is in full glare of the summer sun. Take shade under a tree and should you continue your activity, do so at a slower pace, keeping a watchful eye over whoever is suffering

AIR – Ensure any tight clothing is loosened and temporarily remove any clothing items you can. Should there be a breeze, be sure to stand against it as this will help draw heat away from your body and therefore cool down quicker.

SIP – Make sure you and your party drink at regular intervals. Setting regular times– every 15 mins for example – will ensure you stay hydrated. Remember, as tempting as it maybe to gulp a drink off, it is important to sip slowly so your stomach is given enough time to process the fluids efficiently.

Help – If whoever is ill continues to show symptoms of a sufficient recovery, do not delay in calling for additional help. Heat exhaustion subsequently lead to heat-stroke which can be fatal in extreme cases.

“It is an accessible guide to some basic principles when occasionally get overlooked,” explained Brookes.

“It can happen from time to time when you are outside enjoying the good life, so it is important we try and remember some core ways of staying safe and free from health risks such as heat stroke and heat exhaustion.”

Being the founder of the UK’s leading discount outdoor clothing specialists, Brookes also highlighted that having suitable outdoor clothing can also be an effective measure at staying safe in the sun.

Remember the magic: Fine range of Royal Wedding Memorabilia from Compton and Woodhouse

As we approach exactly a month since the memorable wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, prestige collectables retailer Compton and Woodhouse have laid the spotlight on their fine range of Royal Wedding Memorabilia, to help remember the magic in style.

April 29th 2011 will be a day remembered for love and happiness which will be in our hearts forever. For Catherine Middleton it was a day that every girl shares came true – she married her prince.

Compton and Woodhouse, specialists in prestige collectables and fine jewellery for over 25 years, have chosen to remember the day in stunning fashion by commissioning a range of Royal Wedding commemoratives which capture the elegance and magic of that special day.

Some of the Royal Wedding Memorabilia range is exclusively available at Compton and Woodhouse, including the jewel in the collection’s crown; Catherine: The Royal Bride Figurine.

Carolyn Morton has been selected as the sculptor for the signature figurine and has told gulfnews.com she is, “delighted at the prospect of making a portrait piece of a member of the Royal Family…especially one as beautiful, elegant and charming as Catherine.”

Talking specifically about her process for sculpting, Morton added, “Watching videos are great because you get to see all the angles of the subject’s face and see expressions that might otherwise not be in a photograph. And you also get to see 360 degrees of the person’s face, instead of only from one angle.” (Source – gulfnews.com)

Other collectables which make up the range include Royal Wedding Commemorative Mugs, Trinket Boxes, and China Plates featuring an iconic image from the day that Compton and Woodhouse have specially sourced for these commemorative pieces. There is also a selection of beautiful glass paperweights hand made in Scotland in addition to an elegant range of Royal Wedding jewellery featuring a Royal Wedding Princess Ring.

“It is certainly the most beautiful and elegant speciality range we have offered here at Compton and Woodhouse,” explains Simon Windsor, Marketing Director.

“With higher temperatures, there is a tendency not to wear important safety equipment such as hard hats or clothing with extra padding.”

“It’s understandable to a degree because of the heat, but safety should be the number one concern when working on site,” added Brookes

Qssupplies.co.uk Helps Home Owners Avoid Purchasing Wrong Shower Enclosure

Many Home owners in UK end up in buying wrong shower enclosure for their bathroom. There are some common problems that home owners usually make at the time of purchasing a shower enclosure; the leading bathroom supplier in UK has put together solution on how to deal with those problems.

Avoiding these common mistakes can help home owners having a fabulous shower enclosure in their bathroom that will last for years. Here are Top Ten Tips for buying a shower enclosure.

1. Glass Thickness – You need to ensure the thickness of glass. A shower enclosure must have 4mm or above toughened glass.

2. Smooth Running Wheels – Doors of shower quadrant and enclosure come in use on a regular basis. You must ensure a shower enclosure have smooth gliding doors, so that’s easy to open and close.

3. Offset Shower Enclosure – If you are selecting offset shower enclosure, it’s very important to select the proper orientation of shower tray, according to your bathroom. Offset shower trays comes in left or right handed option. Depending on installation of your enclosure you need to select right or left hand offset shower tray. Many home owners end up buying wrong orientation trays, and then they have to rush to their supplier.

4. Right Size – Selecting the right size shower enclosure is extremely important. A shower enclosure must be spacious and comfortable. Before buying an enclosure, you need to sit and stand in it and make sure none of your body part touches the glass. If you are having a large bathroom, going for a walk in shower enclosure or walk in panel would be an ideal choice. And for smaller bathrooms, selecting a quadrant or pivot recessed shower doors can be an ideal choice. But at the time of selection you must ensure that the cubicle is not too compact and uncomfortable. If you have a large body person in your family, a 900mm quadrant or cubicle would be an ideal choice and spacious, while as 800mm and 760mm would be too small and uncomfortable.

5. Guarantee – Ensure that the shower enclosure is guaranteed on its finish and parts. There are many home owners who have ended up buying cheap imports, that does not carry any guarantee and it’s very difficult for them to get its parts replaced.

6. Design – Selecting the right design can create an impact in your bathroom. A well designed shower enclosure creates stunning bathroom space and offers the ultimate blend of sophisticated design and timeless functionality. A well designed shower enclosure will look new for years and gives a fresh look.

7. Knowledge – Going through magazines can help you select the right design that’s in trend. Alternative you can even visit bathroom design websites where you can come across many images of well decorated bathrooms.

8. Don’t Like – if you don’t like it don’t buy it. Many Home owners compromise on design, quality and functionality just for price. But our advice is don’t compromise, there are variety of shower enclosure available in market from reputed brand that are offered at low price. You just need to keep your eyes open and check for special offers.

9. Brand – Brand awareness is very important. Many home-owners have already repented buying cheap imports from China. Buying from a local brand is always recommended. As after sales service is always good and enclosures last long and are well designed. Even getting parts replacement is easier with local brand and with imports it’s next to impossible.

10. Visit to a Showroom – Visiting a nearby bathroom showroom can actually help you to look and feel the enclosure itself. Don’t be ashamed; get in and out of an enclosure. Try opening the shower doors and closing it to double check the gliding’s and roller quality.

“By following to this simple tips and guidelines home owners can buy the right shower enclosure without making common errors. At QS Supplies on-line shop you’ll find the largest range of branded shower enclosures, a symphony of ideas and trained sales person to help you select the right enclosure for your bathroom” said a spokesperson at QS Supplies.

Debenhams Announces Spike In Fake Tan Sales After Royal Wedding

Debenhams Beauty Hall has revealed that the ‘glowing’ example of the Middletons at the Royal Wedding has caused a sales spike of fake tan with British women aiming to look just as bronzed during this year’s wedding season.

The afternoon of the Royal Wedding Day saw fake tan flying off the shelves with sales up 219 per cent compared to the same day last year. The following day was almost as successful as shoppers, inspired by the wedding highlights on TV, boosted sales by 200 per cent.

Rumours are abound as to how the Middletons achieved their sun-kissed looks, from Kate’s natural glow to Pippa’s golden tone, with professionally applied artificial self tan thought to be the most likely solution.

Sara Stern, beauty director at Debenhams said: “You simply can’t underestimate the impact that Kate and Pippa will have on the beauty industry.

“Already streams of wannabe princesses have been flooding into our stores looking to achieve their healthy, groomed look.

“In particular, Kate’s more subtle shade of tan is perfect for big occasions such as weddings. A light tan to complement your skin tone is much more appropriate than the deeper, more noticeable shades used on a night out”.

Debenhams’ in-store tanning experts have been inundated with phone calls and in store queries about tan-etiquette – how to look your very best at a wedding without over-shadowing the bride or scaring off the best man.

Stern advised: “Skin prep is vital to avoiding those tell-tale tide marks. Exfoliate and moisturise well in advance and apply slowly and steadily. Choose a shade that is not too distant from your skintone and use different products for face and body.

“Take inspiration from the new Duchess of Cambridge and embrace bronzing powders and highlighters to create definition and enhancement – a look that will dazzle from Westminster Abbey to Gretna Green”.

Debenhams reveals 85% of women wear wrong sized bra

Debenhams has revealed that embarrassment is causing 85% of the female population to wear the wrong sized bra.

Despite Debenhams carrying out over one million bra fits a year, the majority of women would rather spare their own blushes than go and get measured for a bra that does the job.

The findings came from a survey by Debenhams, which showed that going topless, feeling uncomfortable and being made to feel embarrassed came out as reasons women felt reluctant to go for a professional bra fitting
– all three are completely false.

Debenhams head of lingerie buying and design Sharon Webb commented: “The results of our survey were shocking – it’s astounding how many myths there are surrounding how a bra fit works.

“What’s more a woman can go from a 36B to a shapely 32D in a matter of minutes by getting a good bra fit – no drastic surgery required.”

Britain’s first lady of lingerie, designer Aliza Reger added: “Fit is of paramount importance, a great fitting bra makes you look good on the outside and feel fantastic on the inside.

“It really is staggering how many women get it totally wrong. There really is nothing worse than an unsupported bust or spilling over the top of an ill-fitting bra.”

Until the 22nd May 2011, the hundreds of expertly trained lingerie fitters at Debenhams are fitting as many women as possible, to raise awareness of the importance of wearing the right sized bra and the dramatic difference it can make to a woman’s figure.

Women can take advantage of the free bra fitting service in all Debenhams stores, and those who do so during May will receive £5 off bras when they are fitted.

The Book People Nominated for Prestigious Bookseller Award

One of the UK’s most successful online bookshops, the Book People, has been shortlisted for the accolade of Direct Bookselling Company of the Year in the prestigious 2011 Bookseller Industry Awards.

The Book People is already the proud owner of two such awards – one in the same category as they are nominated for this year and the other for founder Ted Smart’s Outstanding Contribution to Bookselling. Since their inception in 1988 the Book People has grown rapidly and developed into one of the nation’s most important retailers of fiction books, children’s books and more. This latest nomination is testament to the popular service they offer to consumers.

Organisers of the award remarked that the Book People (TBP) had “successfully honed its bringing books direct to the workplace model for 22 years, and added increased digital elements in 2010. TBP has upped its online product ranges to 18,000 lines, which has boosted average order values by a huge 150 per cent. Development in search engine optimisation also helped to raise sales.”

It is for these reasons that the Book People has been nominated in the direct bookseller category, alongside amazon.co.uk, The Book Depository and Scholastic Book Clubs.

Neill Denny, the Bookseller’s editor-in-chief, praised this year’s nominees, saying: “The overall standard of entries was incredibly high despite, or perhaps because of, the turbulent times we are living through. It will be a very tough job choosing the winners from such a strong field.”

This year, a total of 17 awards will be presented at the Book Industry Conference, a black-tie gala dinner hosted by London’s Park Lane Hilton on Monday 16th May. As well as the usual array of awards, this year’s awards will feature two new categories; Children’s Publisher, and Library Innovation of the Year.
