Boots Has Created Two Fragrances As Part Of Its Support Of This Years BBC Children In Need Campaign

Boots has created two fragrances to generate funds for BBC Children in Need 2008, the fifth year the company has lent its support to the charity.

The ‘his’ and ‘hers’ fragrances from Boots are called Hug for Her and Hug for Him*. The bottles, coloured gold for Hug for Her and silver for Hug for Him, come complete with a Pudsey-inspired phone charm. The fragrances themselves have been specially created to conjure up memories of a happy childhood.

Hug for Her is all about the familiar smell of bath time; the smell of warm towels with a hint of baby powder, whereas Hug For Him has the scent of wood shavings overlaid with the sweet scent of cola, to represent a school pencil case that contains everything from pens and pencils, through to sticky sweets.

Colette Phillips, Charity Marketing Manager for Boots, said: “We absolutely tried to recreate comforting scents that are defining memories from childhood. Our customers who buy a Hug fragrance to support Children In Need will relive happy memories of their childhood, whilst the donation they have made will help BBC Children in Need create brighter futures for some of today’s generation of children.”

Boots has supported BBC Children in Need for the past four years and helped raise a record total of £1.2 million pounds for the children’s charity during last year’s fundraising.

Colette continued: “This year BBC Children in Need is all about doing something different, so we thought we should follow that ethos here at Boots. Traditionally, all our Children in Need Pudsey products, which are sold to raise funds for the charity have been focused on children, but this year we thought we should do something different and create products that adults can also enjoy.”

The fragrances are just two of ten Pudsey products available from Boots. Other products include a mug, badges, a Pudsey bear and a bag, and the obligatory Pudsey ears.

In addition, Boots store teams around the country and teams at the Boots Support Offices will be joining in the fun with some innovative fund-raising ideas.

* Hug for Her and Hug for Him each cost £10, with £3.50 from each product sold being donated to BBC Children in Need.

About Children in Need:
The BBC Children in Need Appeal is in its 28th year and over that time has raised more than £470m to help disadvantaged children and young people in the UK. The statistics show just how necessary the charity’s work is; in the UK it’s estimated that 2.8 million children live in poverty, one hundred thousand children run away from home each year, one child in twenty is classified as disabled and there are 175,000 young carers in Great Britain. More information on the BBC Children in Need Charity (registered charity no. 802052) is available at www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey

Displaysense Reports The High Street Is Struggling As Increased Demand By Stores For 90 Per Cent Off Sales Banners Leads To Stocks Running Out In Late October

As the recession strikes and tightens its grips on British high streets, Displaysense report a worrying time ahead for retailers, with shops going to extreme lengths to encourage customers to part with their cash. The result of some stores taking up to 90% off of their prices has lead to stocks of certain sales banners running out.

The move towards massive sales which reveals the desperation of some high street stores, comes at a time when spending is usually on the increase as a result of consumers flocking to the streets for Christmas related gift ideas. Displaysense, a supplier of sale banners and display stands, is one such company that has been overwhelmed with orders for their sale product range, highlighting that the panic surrounding this Christmas sales period is leading retailers into unchartered territory.

Displaysense has been selling sale related banners and signs as well as other retail supportive products such as display cabinets for some years now, but has suddenly noticed a sharp increase in the demand for their 70%, 80% and 90% off sale banners, so much so that they sold out in October. Good news for Displaysense that they are meeting their audiences needs for products but worrying for the wider economy.

The retail display company is attempting to restock the items as soon as possible but feel that the demand for these sale banners will continue into the New Year alongside the overwhelming amount of orders received for their new range of sale related products.

Steve Whittle the marketing manager of Displaysense commented on this startling high street move by saying, “It’s a worrying trend for the economy in this run up to Christmas and the high street stores are really taking a big gamble”. He continued,”Normally this is the time of year for stores to hold their nerve on their pricing but it looks as if some have shown their cards early and we’ve noticed a great deal of shops with literature holders displaying major discounts”.

Not only are some of the stores taking up to 90% off their prices to encourage Christmas sales, but some are already beginning to revamp their look for 2009 as Displaysense highlight an increase in sales of their shop fittings such as their range of display cases. With the economy not set to recover for some time, a store with a unique look just might have what it takes to prosper in the forthcoming year.

With a tough 2009 predicted, Displaysense is preparing for the tough times ahead for retailers and has already tripled the stock of their ‘buy one get one free’ sale signs but hope they don’t sell any ‘closing down’ signs .

Littlewoods Direct Make Christmas Buying Easier For Parents With Their List Of This Year’s Top Gifts

Christmas is always a difficult time for parents who want to buy the latest and hottest toys for their children. Every year there are new ‘must have’ toys and games, and knowing what the current ones to buy is a headache for many families. This year Littlewoods Direct has sought to make things a bit easier for parents by providing a What’s hot for Christmas section to their site to provide some much needed inspiration.

The Littlewoods Direct What’s hot for Christmas section provides several top ten toys lists split into gifts for boys, gifts for girls, as well as providing ideas for what to get mums and dads. Gift ideas can also be filtered by price or TV show.

Toys and games always come out top as presents for kids or all ages at Christmas, and this year the number one kids’ toy is the High School Musical plug and play karaoke which allows children to simply plug the microphone into the TV and then Sing-along with 10 High School Musical songs.

For girls the X Factor board game, which takes players through the journey of an X Factor contestant, passing through Auditions, Boot Camp, the Judges Houses and all the way to the Final, is one of the most wanted gifts this year.

For boys the 49-piece JCB Durable Workbench is one of the most fun and engaging toys for Christmas, while the feature packed Star Wars Millennium Falcon is sure to be one of the most sought after gifts for older boys, although dads may have to stop playing with it first.

For younger children the Sesame Street Elmo Live is the one of the most talked about soft toys this year. For the first time ever, Elmo seems to actually be speaking as his mouth opens and closes just like the real muppet, Elmo from Sesame Street. He waves his arms, sits and stands, even crosses his legs all the while telling stories and jokes, singing songs and playing games.

For slightly older kids, the Nintendo DS Lite is again for the third year, the number one ‘must have’ console for both boys and girls.

With so many ‘must have’ Christmas gift ideas, Littlewoods Direct want to ensure that everyone gets what they really want this year.

Displaysense Has Reported That A Drunken Reveller At A Corporate Farewell Party In Dorset Sparked Panic After Getting Stuck In A Cabinet And Falling Asleep For Three Hours

Displaysense, the UK’s leading supplier of display equipment, including leaflet dispensers and business card holders, has reported that the drunken antics of an employee working for a company in Dorset resulted in an unusual rescue missions by fellow employees.

Two weeks before the incident, a display cabinet was purchased from Displaysense by the company in Dorset as a method of displaying a number of awards and accolades that the company had recently received. The cabinet, one of many display cases owned by the company, was placed in the cafeteria where members of staff could freely access the awards that were put on display.

During a phone call to Displaysense two weeks later, it was discovered that an unusual incident had occurred at a staff farewell party, resulting in the cabinet being damaged beyond repair and the company left looking for a replacement.

In an effort to startle and surprise the guests of honour at the party, an overly drunk member of staff emptied out the contents of the display cabinet and squeezed himself inside without first considering the internal dimensions of the cabinet. With his coat covering his body, the employee, who was said to be “on the large side”, had planned to jump out after ten minutes. However, this humorous event never materialised.

Three hours passed and the drunken employee, still covered by his coat, awoke to find the bright lights and background music had turned to darkness and silence and that he was now all alone. After entering the cabinet in an awkward manner, he soon realised that he could not actually get out. He managed to reach into his back pocket however, and retrieve his mobile. He rang one of his work colleagues, who was continuing the party festivities in a nearby pub, and pleaded with him for assistance.

Steve Whittle, marketing manager at Displaysense commented: “The gentleman who rang us to order a replacement cabinet told us that they had to go back to the closed office and break apart the cabinet in order to free the employee. We’ve had customers use our products in some unique ways before, but I can’t recall when they’ve been used as a hiding place.”

After the company had finished the order, the sales team at Displaysense were left to question if they should ask their shop display manufacturer whether they should consider changing their design to include easy release mechanisms for the inside of their display cabinets.

Hollywood Stars Have Been Found Sporting Rolex Watches, Is This A Phenomenon Or Could The Economy Be Spawning A Return To A New Style Of Conservatism?

Rolex: Roger Federer, a world-famous tennis-star, is obsessed with his Rolex Day Date President at a time where young Hollywood stars have been found sporting newer styles by Cartier, Gucci, and Chanel. Rolex is a much more conservative brand and the Rolex Day Date President which Federer sports is a watch that has primarily worn by America’s CEO’S and presidents, including Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Ford, and, now, even Barack Obama and John McCain. What about this watch’s history is causing so much renewed interest among today’s Hollywood elite?

The Rolex Day Date is also known as the ‘President’ for a very unique reason. The chairman of Rolex presented President Eisenhower with the Rolex Day Date in 1948 to celebrate the victory over the Nazis in World War II. In 1956 Eisenhower’s watch needed a new solid gold bracelet and Rolex delivered to President Eisenhower a new bracelet with a concealed clasp. Soon after, this bracelet became known as the “President” bracelet and the Day Date watch was also nicknamed the “President” watch. Given President Eisenhower’s public love for the watch Rolex officially launched the wristwatch for public sale that year, in 1956 and it became a huge hit.

Rolex introduced a new version of the Day-Date this year, 2008. The new Day-Date watch, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date II, has a new 41 cm case, larger than the old 36 cm case. It also features a Parachrom-blu hair-spring and Paraflex shock-absorber which makes it more resistant to shock and magnetism. Prestigious and classy, the Rolex Day-Date is available in white-gold, yellow-gold, rose-gold and platinum and are priced at around $20,000.00 retail or around $8000 from Preowned Rolex watch retailers such as Melrose Jewelers, http://www.melrosejewelers.co.uk

Given Rolex’s recent boost in popularity it seems that, once again, America has fallen in love with all items affiliated with the Presidency. Both Barack Obama and John McCain have been seen sporting Rolex watches and as we enter an election period, the Rolex Day Date President may become more popular than ever.

Celebrate A Child’s Name With Customized, Personalized And Monogrammed Baby Gifts

www.BabyBox.com, a luxury retailer of high-end baby bedding, crib bedding, baby furniture, bassinets and baby gifts, presents tips for choosing a baby name, offering a superior collection of personalized, monogrammed and customizable kids and baby gifts that celebrate the importance of a baby’s name while reinforcing the development of a child’s own identity.

“Naming a baby is a very special and often challenging and time-consuming task that parents will face, but once decided, it’s a celebratory occasion,” says Katherine Type, founder of BabyBox.com“Today, celebrities are not the only parents choosing unique baby names or even made up names. Remember those bicycle name plates? They were fine until you tried to find an uncommon name. At BabyBox.com, even unusual names or names with unconventional spellings can be customized on most gift items.”

Parents who are putting off the process of choosing a name can take heart with some simple steps to get them started. The first step usually evolves from a process of eliminating names. Knowing which names are not desirable is an important step toward narrowing a list of possibilities. If a non-traditional name is sought, the logical place to start would be to rule out the most common names. Next, write down all family names, if tradition is important or if honoring a beloved relative is a prerogative. Lastly, take the final list of baby names and sleep on them, consider any difficulties a child might have with spelling, initials, double meanings and gender identification.

Whether taking the traditional or non-traditional route to naming a baby, BabyBox.com has the essential customizable, personalized and monogram luxury baby gifts that children will treasure as their very own.

Personalization starts from day one, when baby is brought home in monogrammed Pima cotton layette sets or bib sets. Documenting a baby’s firsts and milestones gets customized with a wide array of baby books, albums and keepsake boxes, including “A Baby Book for You” with artworks by Ralph Caldecott, Kate Greenaway, Walter Crane, and others from the golden age of children’s book illustration. The book includes a section about why a child’s name was chosen.

According to the U.S. Social Security Administration, some of the most popular boy names in this decade include Jacob, Michael, Joshua, Matthew, Andrew, Christopher, Daniel, Joseph, Ethan and William.

Melrose Jewelers Today Launched The World’s Largest Rolex Watch Education & Reference Guide

Rolex: Melrose Jewelers, USA’s #1 online Rolex watch retailer, today launched the world’s largest Rolex Watch Education & Reference guide. The MJ Rolex Reference Guide includes analysis on distinguishing between Genuine and Replica Rolex watches, a history on Rolex watches and the Rolex corporation, Rolex cultural events & the significance of Rolex in the media, Rolex care & restoration, as well as comprehensive histories and analyses of 18 Rolex wristwatch models including the Rolex Day Date President, Datejust, Explorer, Rolex GMT-Master, Milgauss, Oyster Perpetual Datejust, Submariner, and the Rolex Yacht-Master.

Business Week lists the Rolex brand as #71 in the world with its brand value at nearly $5 billion. Rolex watch sales along with luxury goods sales are booming, even with the housing recession. Now, individuals interested in purchasing a Rolex, looking up reference information about their Rolex watch, looking to care for or restore their Rolex watch, or interested in learning about the history of Rolex’s brand, watches, and its company can now use the Melrose Jewelers Rolex Reference Guide to obtain independent, unbiased information about Rolex.

Mike Moon, Head of Market Research at Melrose Jewelers states, “As the nation’s largest online retailer of Rolex wristwatches, we realized there was an immense amount of incorrect information out there about Rolex watches. Every website has their own opinion about what differentiates an authentic Rolex from a fake one, what certain Rolex reference numbers mean, and which events in history helped to name and shape the Rolex watch models like the Rolex President and Datejust. It’s just not fair to the unknowing consumer who has to spend hours upon hours searching about Rolex only to be potentially taken advantage of. We’ve invested a lot of time and money into creating the MJ Rolex Reference Guide with the sole purpose of cleaning up and clarifying an otherwise, very unclear industry with the belief that a more informed consumer base makes for a better overall industry.”

Displaysense Provided Retail Display Products To A Video Game Company, Helping To Create A More Realistic Gaming Experience

Displaysense, the UK’s leading supplier of retail display products, were approached in mid October by a games design company looking for a number of product seconds that could be purchased and used as props.

The products, which included display cabinets were to be damaged and destroyed while being digitally captured for inclusion in an up and coming online game.

The game which has utilised the products from Displaysense is to be a realistic first person shooter that is set is famous shopping centres around the world with the player either taking on the role of a SWAT team member or that of a terrorist in retail environments. All of the shop fittings and surroundings can be destroyed and, depending on the size, used as weapons.

To get a true sense of realism inot the game, a slightly damaged display case was purchased from Displaysense and will be dropped 30ft from a crane in order to view how the impact damage can be emulated and used in the game.

Not only are the game designers set to employ heavy machinery to abuse the company’s products, but during a call to the sales team, it was hinted that a Kalashnikov rifle would be used on a mannequin to get a realistic view of bullet damage while a flame thrower-like device will be used to monitor how a plastic magazine rack melts.

The game, which is still under development, allows you to personalise your own character and fully interact with other online users in large, realistic environments.

Steve Whittle, the marketing manager at Displaysense, commented, “We were surprised to get the call but very happy to help out, especially as some of these return items were no longer of a high enough quality for us to sell again. Now they are going to be blown up or ripped apart, all in the best interest of computer gaming.”

Displaysense was also happy to learn that to reward the company for all it’s support with the project, the games company is aiming to include Displaysense‘s branding in the game.

About Displaysense:
Displaysense was established in September of 1978 as a manufacturer of quality point of sale displays.

Boots.com Gain Exclusive Stockist Status For myface.cosmetics The New Cosmetics Brand From Renowned Makeup Artist Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury is one of the most influential make-up artists in the world, whose client roster includes Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, Gwen Stefani and Drew Barrymore, to name but a few. She is now allowing every woman “access” to her professional expertise with the launch of the make-up brand myface.cosmetics that syncs a person’s make-up with their skin tone.

Boots will be stocking myface.comestics exclusively on its website, which is the UK’s number one health and beauty online retailer.

Combining the expertise of a high profile make-up artist with high quality products and high-tech packaging, myface.cosmetics has ceremoniously ended mass confusion in the make-up aisles. By merchandising colours and shades according to skintone, both online and in store, myface.cosmetics creates an easy-to-shop user-friendly experience.

Charlotte believes that the vast majority of women are concerned with the make-up colours that most suit them, rather than application techniques, and therefore the range is based on this insight, with each shade picked to work with a specific skin tone – fair, medium and medium/dark.

Charlotte Tilbury said: “The most common question people ask me is ‘What colour lip gloss, blush etc. would you use on my face?’ The right colours dramatically enhance your overall appearance and the wrong ones can really detract.” This refreshingly prescriptive approach to make up seems blindingly obvious and yet has never been done before.

The range consists of ten lines, from light ethereal foundations to lip pop gloss and upload mascara for loaded lashes. Each line has shades that are recommended for each of the skin types.

Celeste Sinclair, Beauty Buyer for boots.com said, “We are so excited to have myface cosmetics as an exclusive brand on our site. Charlotte has earned iconic status in the fashion & beauty world and we know that our customers who are self-confessed ‘beauty addicts’ are absolutely going to love this new brand with such inspirational expertise behind it.”

Clinique Has Launched Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense Hydrator SPF15 Which Is A Multi Tasking Three In One Moisturiser That Delivers Effective Anti-Aging

Clinique, a leader in skin care for men, has launched a new innovation in anti-ageing skin care. Clinique is introducing Skin Supplies for Men Age Defense Hydrator SPF15 to help repair the look of lines and wrinkles, provide defense against future damage and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier function.

Research from Clinique Laboratories confirms that men’s skin ages at a slower rate when compared to women’s skin, however, when men’s skin does begin to age it happens at a far greater rate and often the damage is more visible. New Age Defense Hydrator SPF 15 is the ultimate anti-ageing moisturiser, streamlining grooming for men, without compromising effectiveness as it works to fight the visible signs of ageing.

The understanding that lines and wrinkles are not the only signs of ageing has been gaining popularity. Other factors include enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, loss of firmness and lack of moisture. Because men’s skin tends to be oily, there is a common misconception that they do not need to moisturise. The truth is that all skins need moisture, and in fact, many men need it more since they are constantly stripping away layers of protective skin that holds in moisture during daily shaving. In addition, because the biggest contributor to premature ageing continues to be overexposure to sunlight, broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection is an essential step to help protect skin from future damage with anti-ageing skin care.

The New Age Defense Hydrator SPF15 from Clinique works to help support skin’s own natural collagen production effectively helping to repair the look of lines and wrinkles while restoring visible firmness and elasticity to the skin. It provides UVA/UVB protection using sunscreens that help defend skin against sun damage and photo-ageing. Plus it replaces lost moisture and helps build and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier function.

Displaysense Is Bucking The Negative Economic Trend With Year On Year Growth And Has Its Sights Set On Conquering Europe As It Launches Its European Web Site

Displaysense are bucking the economic trend and setting themselves up as a major player heading into 2009, despite the current economic climate proving to be testing for all forms of business across the globe

Displaysense, the UK’s leading supplier of display equipment and shop fittings, have continued to evolve their business over the last few years. And in 2008, transformed themselves again with a new website, new products and a new international presence with its two sister sites that service the European and Ireland communities.

Displaysense had great success with their UK website which was followed up with the creation of their Ireland website in February 2008 and their new European site www.displaysense.com in July 2008, which is proving to have been a wise move, cementing the company’s position within the international market. The company now distribute their full range of products including business card holders to countries such as Spain and Germany as well as domestic markets.

To celebrate the launch of the new European site, Displaysense has enjoyed theme days that have included a visit from an Italian chef, thigh slapping on Lederhosen day and a 1 hour French lesson for all staff. They haven’t quite agreed on what they should do to support their entrance into the Dutch market but their Marketing Manger, Steve Whittle, thinks it should be the ‘High’ light of the festivities.

Mr Whittle said; “The introduction of the European and Irish websites were a result of the hard work put into the company during its 30 year history, driven on by the business ethos of its directors and we are already starting to reap the benefits from the decision to enter these markets”. Steve continued, “We can distribute any of our products to the European community from large display cases right down to the smallest of literature holders, all for one, low fixed delivery charge, supplied within a matter of days”.

Displaysense, who are on a continuing mission of innovation, believe that they can provide the same levels of service and website experience that the more well known online brands provide, something that other companies within their sector are not even attempting to offer.

Embracing the web, Displaysense continue to adapt and reposition themselves in order to meet the challenges of the economic climate and its’ staff are all set to take on 2009, which is set to be another record year for the business.

Many Women Find Pregnancy Is Full Of Niggling Complications

One problem cited by many pregnant women is a sensitive or itchy tummy. Some are so sensitive they hate anything touching their bump and thick waistbands on or under the belly feel annoying.

Fertile Mind realised maternity underpants with lace or tight and/or thick elastic waistbands were distressing some women. So they have launched maternity underpants for sensitive tummies – Perfect Fit maternity undies.

The Perfect Fit undies have many hidden features that allow them to sit comfortably under the bump, while not pushing or pressing on the skin. For example, the fabric is a soft cotton and the shape is cleverly contoured to sit flat on the belly. Sides of the maternity underpants are a little wider than usual, and the crutch is also wider. There is good bottom room too, which feels very comfortable. Finally, you won’t find a label in the undies, another thing that can cause irritation. Instead a rubberised image of Fertile Mind’s web address www.fertilemind.com.au is stamped inside the pants. All in all, the Perfect Fit maternity undies make all other maternity undies seem a little…..irritating.

The Perfect Fit maternity undies come in a two pack and RRP is $25.

Super-Stretchy Superbra From Fertile Mind Does

When does a bra become a Superbra? When it does what this super-stretchy bra from Fertile Mind does.

The average size of an Australian woman is now 14 but many women are larger and battling to find a bra that fits their chest and cup measurements.

Superbra has been tried on a range of differently sized and shaped women and is yet to find a body shape that it doesn’t fit comfortably.

While pitched to pregnant women, this bra is not just a maternity bra. It may be one of the few bras that will suit women

So far, anecdotes from stockists are coming in with exciting news of the Superbra fitting a 16A cup to an 18J! The same bra fitted a 12K cup woman. Perhaps the seamless stretch of the elastic material is more giving than most, but women who have experienced mastectomies are also finding relief in the bra. Bras are normally associated with some discomfort, but with no seams, hooks or clips – this is one bra that has all the comfort of a soft t-shirt.

The Superbra is available in two colours (black and nude) and only two sizes (small-medium and medium-large). It retails for $44.95 and stockists can be found at www.fertilemind.com.au.

The Rise In Breastfeeding Corresponds With A Similar Rise In Demand For Suitable Clothing That Can Allow Discreet Breastfeeding

83% of Australian women will try breastfeeding their baby and many will continue for up to a year. So the message from the World Health Organisation that breastfeeding is recommended for all infants is getting through to most women.

Glamourmom is a leading brand of nursing tank with drop down straps which access the breast. Tanks can be worn as outerwear, underwear or sleepwear. They are designed to replace the maternity bra and come in a range of colours and lengths. Glamourmom also hides the post partum tummy when an outer shirt is lifted for feeding. All Glamourmom tops have discreet clips that blend in with the top colour – making them almost indistinguishable from a regular tank. Cotton makes Glamourmom a comfortable choice as summer approaches.

Tops with sleeves and breastfeeding access are also popular – making feeding a baby while working even more discreet. Corporate styles with long, short or no sleeves are available from Fertile Mind. Bright prints give a big nod to fashion trends and breathable fabrics again work best.

Breastfeeding fashion is a popular trend that is here to stay, here’s hoping breastfeeding rates increase even more as a result. For breastfeeding fashion and Glamourmom nursing tanks go to www.fertilemind.com.au.
