Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser By Clinique

For the past decade, Clinique scientists have worked with leading institutions from around the world to develop a revolutionary way to help slow down the visible signs of ageing while simultaneously promoting skin’s natural ability for cellular repair.

Armed with this cutting edge research and ground-breaking knowledge of Sirtuins, naturally occurring agents found in the skin which can lead to a youthful appearance, Clinique has been able to create a comprehensive anti-ageing skin care product for the woman looking to slow down the hands of time.

Clinique introduces the new patent-pending Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser. Inspired by Sirtuin activation technology and anti-glycation science and including UVA/UVB SPF 15 sun protection, the new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser is a comprehensive anti ageing skin care product that helps to enable skin to prevent and repair the visible signs of ageing simultaneously. Sirtuins are vital to helping extend the function and life of cells. So vital, in fact, that they are known as “longevity genes”.

Inspired by this Sirtuin technology, new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser features a complex which is proprietary to Clinique to help visibly restore a youthful look to ageing skin. Using Isonicotinamide, skin’s natural defense capabilities are heightened.

The new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser also helps skin to boost its natural collagen production, maintain existing collagen, and correct the look of lines and wrinkles more effectively, delivering visible results faster.

Sugars found in ageing skin bind to proteins and form Advanced Glycation End-products(AGEs). The formation of AGEs contributes to the ageing process by exacerbating theaccumulation of damage to the skin. New Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser contains anti-glycation technology. This deceptive “double agent” technology works to help skin protect fragile and healthy natural collagen and elastin so the skin’s look of resilience and suppleness is maintained.

One of the biggest contributors to visible ageing is the sun. New Youth Surge SPF 15 AgeDecelerating Moisturiser contains photo-stable UV protection which helps skin resistpremature ageing by helping to guard against the UVA “ageing” rays which cause futurelines and wrinkles.

While no one can reverse ageing, new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser can certainly slow its appearance down. With use, skin’s visible texture looks improved and noticeably firmer over time. Skin looks younger longer, by visibly correcting the appearance of past damage and delaying future signs of ageing.

The new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser is available in three skin-typedformulas.

Very Dry to Dry Skin Types – a luxuriously, velvety cream that delivers intense moisturewhile providing comfort and cushion.

Dry Combination Skin Types – an ultra soft, emollient cream with a whipped texture tomoisturise and protect skin, leaving it soft and supple.

Combination Oily to Oily Skin Types – an exceptionally lightweight cream delivering moisture where it is needed most, leaving skin soft, smooth and feeling fresh. Oil-free.

Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturiser is available at Clinique counters nationwide from 1 March 2009

He continued, “We don’t sit on our success. We’ve already doubled our range over the course of the year having seen the initial successes of our display cabinet range.”

This news comes at a time when retail industry like for like sales has seen an unexpected growth of 1.1% in January, a rise which has not been seen since October 2008.

Elemis Has Added To Its Anti Ageing Body Care Range With The Introduction Of The New Pro-Collagen Body Serum Intensive Lift

Studies have shown that as skin ages, collagen and elastin degenerate and cell cohesion loosens as the skin loses calcium. Pro-Collagen Body Serum Intensive Lift is a non-sticky, easily absorbed gel-serum that stimulates the fibroblasts (network of skin fibres) to speed up cell-communication and aid the production of collagen and elastin.

The serum harnesses micro-lattice technology which has been designed specifically for the body to target ageing skin. The technology uses Mexican skin tree and amino acids to strengthen the cohesion between skin layers. A lattice forms to protect against external forces while the acids stimulate the skin’s Natural Moisture Factor (NMF).

As part of the Pro-Collagen range, Elemis Pro-Collagen Body Serum Intensive Lift is an anti ageing product designed to restore skin firmness and elasticity to instantly tighten slackened skin of the buttocks, abdomen, arms and neckline.

Noella Gabriel, the director of product and treatment development at Elemis, said: “An ageing skin is a thinning skin and as skin ages it starts to slacken and lose elasticity. Whatever your age, stress levels effect your skin so good skin maintenance is a must.

“Elemis recognises that consumers are more aware, educated and sophisticated in their needs from a body product than ever before. Not only do they want to moisturise but want to address their anti ageing concerns. I am very excited to have created a product to meet this demand.”

Noella continued, “We at Elemis have sourced natural, powerful ingredients from around the world to deliver a super soft after-feel on the skin, designed to be layered without feeling the overload.”

The natural ingredients used in the new body serum include paracress (a flower bud originating from South Africa), peptide pea pods (which stimulate skin firmness and elasticity while reinforcing the skin’s natural moisture) and acacia gum (which creates an immediate skin tightening effect and wrinkle filler).

The full Elemis anti ageing body care range, which was originally launched in February 2008, also contains Elemis Pro Collagen Radiantly Smooth Body Cream and Pro-Collagen Hand and Nail Cream.

About Elemis:
Created in 1990, Elemis is the leading luxury British spa and skincare brand. Elemis partners with over 1200 luxurious spas and salons, 130 cruise ship spas, British Airways Elemis travel spas and over 100 retail stores around the globe. Elemis treats over 5.7 million people each year and has the single largest influence on trends and developments in the global spa and skincare industry. The successful combination of powerful natural ingredients, cutting-edge formulation technology and proven clinical trials has enabled Elemis to bring to market some of the most influential anti ageing homecare products and professional spa-therapies the beauty industry has ever seen.

For Those Seeking A Flavored Massage Candle Option, Skinny Dip Candles Introduces Sensual Edibles

Rolled out in mid-February, Sensual Edibles massage candles are currently offered in six flavors: Cherrylicious, Chocolate Decadence, Orgasmic Orange, Passionate Pina Colada, Sensuous Strawberry, and Wicked Wild Berry.

Company founder and CEO, Karen Porter, states, “The flavored massage candle line came about f r o m multiple customer requests for a massage candle that tastes great.” While Skinny Dip Candles have traditionally been used for moisturizing the body and as a massage oil, Porter stated that “many of our customers use the candle for romantic couple’s massage and we had many requests for a flavored massage candle.”

Porter states that the six flavors currently available in the Sensual Edible line were selected with customer input. The flavors were also based on the popularity of the company’s top selling Barely There Lip Balm flavors.

Like the flagship Skinny Dip Candle line, Sensual Edibles are made f r o m natural ingredients. Sensual Edibles are made f r o m cosmetic-grade soy, avocado oil, beeswax, sunflower oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, and vitamin E. The Edibles line features flavor oil instead of fragrance or essential oils.

Like traditional Skinny Dip Candles, Sensual Edibles melt at just over body temperature and are ready to use immediately after extinguishing the flame. Porter adds, “The melted lotion is extremely rich, so a little goes a very long way. It’s terrific when used on cuticles, elbows, heels, dry hands, and anywhere the skin is dry. Even though the warm lotion is super emollient, it completely absorbs into the skin within just a matter of minutes.”

Priced at $14.95 retail on the company’s website, SkinnyDipCandle.com, Sensual Edibles are also offered at wholesale pricing for qualified resellers.

Skinny Dip Candles and other company products are also available in select gift shops, spas, and salons across the U.S.

Scottish online cosmetics company Beauty Counter Direct have announced an impressive 43% like-on-like increase in sales

Defying the economic downturn, Beauty Counter Direct’s December figures prove that beauty products and cosmetics are increasingly popular. The so-called, ‘lipstick effect’, first evident during the Great Depression 1929-1933 when lipstick sales rocketed 25%, should perhaps be renamed the ‘cosmetics effect’ as sales increase across the board. In the pre-Christmas period Beauty Counter Direct’s skin care product sales increased by 65%, cosmetics by 58% and fragrances were up by 17%. During the same period, mascara sales more than doubled.

Julie Wood, Managing Director of Beauty Counter Direct says: “Our sales prove that people like to keep up appearances despite the dismal outlook. Treating yourself to less expensive luxuries has never been so popular. Customers want low cost and high impact.”

Sales figures from one of the world’s biggest cosmetics companies, L’Oreal, endorse this theory. Their sales were up 5.3% in the first half of the year.

RAB Capital analyst Dhaval Joshi explains the increase: “The evidence shows that when budgets are squeezed people simply substitute large extravagances for small luxuries.” Wood backs up this comment: “Our customers are buying larger volumes of cheaper products.”

Beauty Counter Direct was started by Julie Wood in 2005 after spotting a gap in the market for direct designer selling. The company employs eight people and is hoping to increase staff levels in 2009. Their best selling item is YSL Touche Eclat (RRP £22.50), which costs £16.99. Their product range stretches from eye pencils at 50 pence to Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti Ageing Cream (RRP £145) at £98.99. Over one hundred brands include Estee Lauder, Lancôme, Clarins, Clinique and Yves Saint Laurent. They offer discounts of up to 70% on high street prices and cater for the grooming needs of both men and women.

Beauty Counter Direct specialises in discount cosmetics, skin care products, fragrances, beauty products and accessories from a wide range of premium designer brands. They provide a new way to buy your favourite beauty products offering both great savings and greater convenience. Browse through their extensive range at your convenience. Ordering couldn’t be simpler, and with a choice of three flat rate delivery options, including guaranteed next day delivery, orders are with you in no time.

Clinique, leader in skin care innovation has announced the launch of its latest skin care moisturizer called New Comfort on Call

Clinique, leader in skin care and make-up innovation, has announced the launch of their latest advance in skin care moisturizer – New Comfort on Call.

Clinique, at the forefront of skin care research, has launched a new innovation in anti aging and allergy relief skin care, with the introduction of New Comfort on Call – Allergy Tested Relief Cream, a moisturiser designed for people with visibly reactive skin.

Clinique’s New Comfort on Call enhances the skin’s ability to protect itself against external irritants such as pollutants and airborne particles. Containing the rare Citrus Jabara Fruit Extract, indigenous to Japan’s Wakayama Prefecture region where it is cultivated, this moisturising cream helps to calm the appearance of irritated skin.

Wakayama villagers believe Jabara can prevent pollen allergies from the region’s abundant trees. The villagers eat and drink it continuously to build their resistance to the onslaught of pollen each spring. Even at the height of pollen season, they report that allergies are rare. Clinique’s New Comfort on Call is the first and only skin treatment to include Citrus Jabara Fruit Extract. It is the heart of Clinique’s unique Enviro-Soothe Complex, including potent anti-irritants Mangosteen and Glycyrrhetinic Acid (licorice extract).

Dermatologist tested, and suitable for even very sensitive skin, New Comfort on Call:

– Gives immediate relief to dehydrated, dry skin and visibly calms irritated skin
– Helps shield and protect skin against extreme weather conditions while maintaining moisture
– Is suitable for all skin types that become very dry and taut when exposed to frigid climates
– Helps reduce skin’s visible reactivity and instances of cracked, flaky or rough skin with continued use

Protecting the skin, especially in colder climates, is critical in maintaining its strength and resilience. Skin becomes more susceptible to the harmful effects of common allergens and environmental pollutants, such as airborne particles, when the skin barrier is impaired.

“Aware of the changes in the environment, we wanted to create a product that would not only assist in helping the appearance of reactive skin, but would help skin to naturally cope with fluctuations in weather and humidity. We incorporated a water-binding protein that improves and rebalances the skin’s moisture, building a stronger, more resilient skin barrier, better able to protect against both extreme weather conditions and harmful external airborne particles.” Commented Dr. Tom Mammone, Executive Director of Clinique Research and Development

New Comfort on Call provides an invisible protective shield to strengthen skin’s moisture and lipid barrier function, helping skin to be less susceptible and reactive to certain external triggers over time. New Comfort on Call helps relieve dry, cracked skin while it softens, smoothes and improves skin’s texture and condition. This intense, luxuriously rich cream-balm moisturiser provides immediate comfort and all day hydration.

New Comfort on Call will be available nationwide from 1 February 2009

Displaysense set to introduce more than 767 shelving products made up from only 27 component items to help budget squeezed companies looking for greater value for money from their purchases

Displaysense to introduce innovative new shelving ideas for cash strapped businesses. During these tricky economic times it is becoming increasingly difficult for businesses to justify purchasing bespoke shop fittings in order to display their products, advertise their services and promote their brand. With this in mind, Displaysense has a simple solution that is not only budget and user friendly, but also more diverse than a Lego set.

With an artillery of 27 components, Displaysense – the UKs leading supplier of shop fittings and wire chrome shelving units -has plans to reveal a total of 767 combinations of retail shelving solutions. This extensive range of shelving will allow customer to adapt and craft unique displays to suit any business environment from caterers to offices and even for the home.

Unlike a number of competitor suppliers of wire chrome components, Displaysense is set to be the first to provide customers with a unique glimpse at the products’ potential usage and combinations. Already boasting an existing range of more than 60 units, Displaysense plan to expand that number further thanks to recent component parts that include clothing rails and sloping brochure holders that open the door for more industries to take advantage of the products’ potential.

Steve Whittle, marketing manager at Displaysense, commented, “We are constantly trying to diversify our product range or create new solutions at Displaysense. You could say it’s in the blood, as we often extend our product range simply by imagining who the end user could be. Our ballot boxes are a perfect example of this as we originally had a limited number of floor standing units. So we designed our own solution by adding two products together and they have gone down a storm with our customers”.

Steve continued, “Our designs enable businesses to buy shelving solutions that can grow and adapt to their business needs, providing them far greater value for money than other shelving and display options out there.”

The company doesn’t plan to stop there with its products either, as Steve forecasts that 2009 is set to be a fantastic year for the business, as more innovative display solutions are introduced to aid the struggling retail sector.

About Displaysense
Displaysense was established in September of 1978 as a manufacturer of quality point of sale displays. Displaysense has a wealth of experience in design and manufacturing and has been able to develop an ever growing standard range of more than 1500 displays. The range is now hugely diverse including acrylic containers, display cabinets, mannequins, modular shelving units, exhibition displays and business card holders.

Contractor-grade grow lights at wholesale prices facilitate winter and indoor plant propagation

AccessDiscounts.com – a leading supplier of grow lights, residential lighting and commercial lighting, offers hydroponic growing solutions and savings on a variety of grow lights and grow lighting systems this winter season. Grow lights simulate the effects of sunlight on plants (photosynthesis), which may be diminished during long winter months experienced by many regions during this time of year.

“As the seasons change, growers may need to augment their lighting sources, and in most of the U.S., indoor growers will find a need to increase lighting,” stated Christina Roush, spokesperson for Access Discounts. “Professional and recreational home growers can take advantage of our full range of grow lights and grow light systems to effectively lengthen their indoor growing season, even during the most extreme outdoor conditions.”

Hydroponic gardening has grown in popularity due to its effectiveness in producing healthy quantities of fruits, flowers and vegetation. Plants grown hydroponically receive all of their nutrients from a water-based solution thereby eliminating the risk of soil borne parasites and illnesses. Indoor growing also eliminates the need for cultivation and weeding, and mitigates the effects of insects and rodents.

AccessDiscounts.com offers a wide range of grow light types, each with its specific characteristics, that are available through its online store. High pressure sodium (HPS) and metal halide (MH) lamps provide the high intensity discharge (HID) lamps needed for the vegetative stage of plant growth. Lamps can be purchased by spectrum color, or as full-spectrum solutions and growing systems. Since light, climate and humidity all are factors in successful hydroponic plant growth, AccessDiscounts.com provides options for both commercial growers and the home grower.

Buying power and strong supplier relationships allow AccessDiscounts.com to obtain significant savings, which are passed on to customers. Manufactured in the USA, all residential, commercial and grow lights sold here are precision engineered to meet ETL, UL and CUL standards.

Specializing in an extensive selection of commercial and residential lighting and grow lights, AccessDiscounts.com brings affordable prices to retail and commercial customers. Commercial lighting solutions include high bay lights, low bay lights, wall packs, flood lights, exit and emergency lights, ceiling HID fixtures, HID replacement lamps, ballast kits, capacitors/ignitors, sports lighter, induction lights, garden bollards, conversion bulbs, barn lights, construction lights, motion sensor lighting, roadway lighting, vaporproof lighting and Skillers Work Wear.

The residential lighting selection includes bathroom lighting, kitchen lighting, ceiling lighting wall lighting, lamps, chandeliers, pendants, fountains, foyer, outdoor lighting and energy saving lights. Grow light systems, fluorescent fixtures, grow light ballasts, grow light reflectors, grow light bulbs, grow light accessories, replacement ballast kits, replacement capacitors, replacement ignitors and LED Gro Master

Displaysense reports sales of catering equipment increasing in the lead up to Valentines Day

Displaysense reports that while Valentines Day is renowned as the most romantic day of the year, with couples expressing their love for each other with gifts and for many, tying the knot, making it one of the busiest marriage periods in the year, it’s not just flowers and chocolates that are in demand this February.

This busy marriage period has lead to Displaysense (http://www.displaysense.co.uk), the UKs leading supplier of affordable shop fittings and catering equipment, having to double their stock of cake displays, after increasing demand from customers who are intending to cut down on the big day expenses due to the ongoing credit crunch by doing a lot more themselves rather than payout for caterers.

After various calls to the Displaysense sales team, a number of customers have indicated that other businesses are also benefiting from the downturn, as a number of people are renting equipment or making items for the big day, rather than purchasing it.

Steve Whittle the marketing manager at Displaysense said, “There definitely seems to be a growing trend of people looking to DIY their wedding day. If this trend continues, we may change our future new product plans and introduce more wedding related products”.

Steve commented further by saying, “Some of our customers have been very inventive with their purchases, one example was a customer who cut down on their wedding stationary and purchased some note clip holders from our leaflet holders range and used them for table and name placements as well as menu holders“.

On speaking to suppliers and the local business community, Displaysense has learnt that certain businesses are even planning to extend their January sales to cover the first two weeks of February to pick up this marriage trade and supply products to couples who are working with a tighter wedding budget.

With wedding numbers decreasing by an estimated 35% since their peak in 1972, couples have preferred to co-habit, rather than tie the knot. However, the race to exchange vows on Valentines Day always leads to a surge in the Marriage figures and the numbers of people filling the countries church pews.

With the credit crunch in place tightening the purse strings on everything from the dresses to the catering, Displaysense wishes all those couples good luck and hope the trend for more DIY weddings continues in 2009.

We have a project in honor of our new president! We want you to help us make the: United Blanket of Change!

Today’s deal gets you… a FREE skein of Austermann Bombolo to make your square of this symbol of hope! … Right, as expected I don’t see a flurry of excitement and enthusiastic clicking over everyone’s “favorite” yarn. Here’s the thing – this is what we have to work with. We don’t always have the ideal yarn or the softest cashmere, but we can still make the best of it and create something beautiful!

The unique squares you knit will be combined into the United Blanket of Change and sent to the President!

We are all counting on our new President Barack Obama to move forward with blanketing changes and knit this country together into one great nation… and Dizzy Sheep wants to unite knitters to show our support!

Even if you didn’t vote for Obama or agree with all of his ideas, we still need you! The 51% wool and 49% acrylic content symbolizes the ever present differing views of the people in this great country, spun together to create – “Austermann Obamolo Bombolo!” Alright, that might be going a bit far, but the point is, United We Knit!!!

Details:

United Blanket of Change

Your payment covers shipping for the yarn and for the return of the completed square – we provide the yarn at no additional charge.

Have a group that wants to make multiple squares – CONTACT us with an email address.

For each kit ordered, you will receive:
• One free skein of Austermann Bombolo
• A pre-paid and addressed Priority MailTM envelope to return your completed square
• General guidelines for the completed square
• A form to provide an optional acknowledgment and/or dedication for your square
• A photograph of the completed blanket via email

All completed squares must be dropped in the mail by March 2, 2009.

Dizzy will combine the squares into a very large, probably wall size blanket.

The completed blanket will be sent to President Obama along with a document containing all the acknowledgements / dedications.

General guidelines:
• Each square should be 10″ x 10″
• Any design – perhaps something inspiring, important or symbolic to you
• One skein will make a square, but you can add other yarns, beads, etc
• Please nothing that would be generally considered offensive
• Yes – crocheting is perfectly acceptable (Dizzy considers crocheting: knitting using a hook 🙂

We are trying for participation from all 50 states. We will note any states in that are missing and we know that the wonderful online community of knitters will “needle” a friend or relative to participate.

Online Retailer Of Heirloom Quality Silver Updates Web Site For An Enhanced, Search Optimized Shopping Experience

www.SilverMineGifts.com, a leader in fine silver gifts for all occasions, today announced that it has launched a newly redesigned web site to showcase the online store’s expansive selection, featuring silver gifts, silver baby jewelry, heirloom quality sterling silver lockets, silver pillboxes and antique style silver jewelry. SEOWhat.com, an internet marketing agency, provided both the design and infrastructure refresh for SilverMineGifts.com.

“We are extremely pleased with the outcome of our new site and its elegant presentation of our silver gifts,” said Ralph Goddard, founder, SilverMineGifts.com.“By bringing our new site online and enhancing our search marketing, we have created a phenomenal shopping experience and we hope that new customers as well as existing customers continue to entrust us when shopping for the perfect silver gift.”

In an economic downturn, precious metals such as gold and silver are sound investments; however, traditional investing doesn’t yield tangible goods that can be handed down through generations. Investing in high-end silver pillboxes and gifts, as both keepsakes and investments, can return an increase in value. In 1964, the value of the silver used to make coins overtook the coin’s face value. Similarly, the average silver pillbox — containing 10 quarters’ worth of silver — has a melt value that far exceeds its face value of $2.50.

SilverMineGifts.com features a wide range of classic silver items such as sterling silver gifts, sterling silver jewelry, silver baby gifts,engraved baby gifts, silver barware and bar gifts, silver children’s gifts, silver kids bracelets, children’s silver jewelry, engravable gifts, silver napkin rings, charm bracelets, silver chains, lockets, sterling silver pendants, silver magnifying glasses, silver cufflinks and money clip, silver pillboxes, thimbles, and a variety of silver polish and sterling silver jewelry care products.

Shopping for the perfect silver gift is a hassle-free and satisfying experience with SilverMineGifts.com’s vast selection and unparalleled service. Offering in-house engraving with a state-of-the-art computerized engraving system, the company includes pride in workmanship and personal attention to detail, with every order. Custom engraving such as corporate logos, military graphics and religious symbols can be requested using the site’s “E-mail Us” link.

Melrose Jewelers would like to thank its nearly 10,000 Rolex watch customers for their loyalty and support through this tough economy and wishes everyone a warm and prosperous 2009

Melrose Jewelers, USA’s #1 Online Rolex Watch Retailer, http://www.melrosejewelers.com, would like to wish its nearly 10,000 Rolex watch customers and its many Rolex customers-to-be a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and a Happy New Year! We, at Melrose Jewelers, know these are tough economic times and, like many this year, Melrose Jewelers has struggled while selling its Rolex watches at a heavy discount, on the Internet. At times Melrose Jewelers has sold its Rolex watches at or just above cost, losing money in its business, in order to help consumers purchase a Rolex watch at an affordable, reasonable, and non-exploitative cost. Melrose Jewelers believes that ethics in the jewelry & watch industry are lacking and MelroseJewelers.com was established with the sole purpose of bringing Rolex, the most popular luxury watch brand and one of the most philanthropic companies in the world, to the masses of hard working American men and women.

Melrose Jewelers was established nearly 5 years ago and has grown its websites to the top ranking in the United States, United Kingdom, & Canada, shipping nearly 10,000 authentic Rolex watches in its history. Its employee size has grown 10-fold including as it has supported higher education, recruiting graduates from the University of Southern California (USC), University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Vanderbilt University, University of California, San Diego (UCSD), Loyola Marymount University (LMU), University of Massachusetts, Western Michigan University, University of California, Riverside and Cornell University.

Founded by its current President, as an MBA student, in order to help pay for his graduate school education, Melrose Jewelers was established with the sole goal of aiding hard-working American citizens to obtain luxury at an affordable price. Mimicking the business models of innovative companies such as Progressive Insurance and CarMax, Melrose Jewelers prices its Rolex watches at as little as 15% above cost as it believes that the percentage is a high enough to allow for a profit for our company while still providing a fair price for consumers. The management team at Melrose Jewelers believes that the jewelry & watch industry has, historically, sought to squeeze high margins out of its customers by occasionally opting to misguide and deceive its customers. Melrose Jewelers believes this is not only wrong but un-American and unethical. We, at Melrose Jewelers, hope to set an example for others in our industry by choosing to be honest and straight-forward with our customers, with fixed, discounted pricing, clarity on authenticity and diamond color/clarity, and service-oriented sales incentivized by customer satisfaction, not profit.

Melrose Jewelers would like to thank the following people for helping to make its business a success: its hard-working employees and their families who put up with their long hours and late nights coming home, its watchmakers, polishers, and jewelers who work tirelessly on our watches to make our customers’ smiles come alive, its many vendors and strategic partners including its web development and design teams who keep its website up and running, its analysts and writers who have developed the best Rolex education and information website on the web athttp://www.melrosejewelers.com/content/rolex_education.htm and the world’s most popular Rolex and luxury watch Blog at http://www.melrosejewelers.com/rolex-watch-blog/, Federal Express for shipping our watches with a near 0.0% loss rate, the Rolex corporation, a company which opts to give the majority of its hard-earned profits back to charity year after year, and lastly, you, our customers whose daily interaction with us has not only enriched our lives, but who have helped us feed our families, pay our student loans, and allowed us, as individuals to survive through these tough economic times.

Lastly, Melrose Jewelers would like to thank its competitors, who have kept us on our toes, continuously innovating and challenging us to be better at what we do. Melrose Jewelers, in 2008, performed a series of test purchases from a number of our competitor websites and found the following companies to have excellent quality watches in their respective countries. Melrose Jewelers believes in fair trade and healthy competition. We, at Melrose Jewelers, feel we offer the best value on the Net for any Rolex watch but, simply put, if you’re not buying a Rolex from Melrose Jewelers, we encourage you to buy a Rolex from any of the fine companies below.

Thomas Sanderson Has Unveiled INTU Metal Venetian Blinds, Designed To Offer Improved Light And Noise Suppression

Thomas Sanderson, Europe’s largest manufacturer and supplier of window blinds and shutters, has unveiled the new ‘INTU’ metal venetian blinds.

The new INTU metal Venetian blinds from Thomas Sanderson offer the traditional benefits of a venetian blind, such as adding a contemporary look to the home and offering a filtering of light, but with modification to the Venetian Slats and Tension cord position. The modifications entailed the moving of the cord and the holes that it is threaded through to the left of the blind, ensuring less light being able to get through.

The modifications to the metal venetian blinds also means customers can enjoy reduced daylight seepage, increased privacy, cleaners edges and a streamlined design.

Thomas Sanderson blinds are also designed to fit seamlessly into the actual window beading, rather than the window recess, resulting in a precision fit and the practicality of not needing to raise the blinds to open a window, as the blind will move with it.

Using a technical survey based on information provided by Thomas Sanderson surveyors, any customers buying the new blinds from the company will have their blinds manufactured to the exact specifications required by the customer. Each blind will be crafted by a highly skilled manufacturing team, with the blinds then being installed.

The new metal Venetian window blinds from Thomas Sanderson are available now in a range of colours of finishes.

About Thomas Sanderson:
Since 1991, Thomas Sanderson has grown from a family run business to an international company offering products and services throughout the UK and Ireland. The company is Europe’s largest manufacturer and supplier of conservatory blinds, window blinds, shutters and patio awnings.

Thomas Sanderson has remained true to its roots, offering a local service and continuing to make its relationship with each and every customer its main priority. The company takes pride in ensuring the standards of service on offer match the high standards of its products.

Couples Planning Winter Holiday Themed Weddings Can Save Money Shopping For Discount Wedding Favors

www.AmericanBridal.com, the Internet’s most expansive collection of unique and affordable wedding favors, touts the benefits of planning a winter holiday themed wedding. The online retailer carries a generous selection of holiday-themed wedding favors for couples shopping for their 2009 holiday-themed wedding celebration. Planning at least one year ahead can help to defray the cost of wedding favors, and gives the couple a chance to save money with discount wedding favors.

“The holidays can be an especially challenging time financially, but it’s a wise investment to set aside a kitty to find wedding favors during the post-holiday bargain shopping season,” said Shirley Tan, founder, AmericanBridal.com“End of the year sales not only help retailers clear holiday items and prepare for new inventory, they can be great sources of savings for the wedding budget.”

When buying wedding favors several months in advance of the event, the favors must have a shelf-life so edibles are not always the best choice. While a favorite among wedding guests, chocolate has a tendency to bloom when past its prime, appearing gray and chalky. Choosing the container early and purchasing the edible contents closer to the wedding date is a viable option for those who want to save money while treating guests to edible wedding favors.

In addition to affordable wedding favors, cost-conscious couples can find additional saving on wedding reception tables without looking like they have cheap wedding favors. Festive holiday wedding centerpieces can be assembled without spending a fortune. A candle surrounded by a pine wreath decorated with pine cones and candy canes or silvery snowflake, garland and ornament, can make stunning table decorations.

Another benefit of planning a holiday wedding can be the availability and cost of venues. Sometimes, holiday parties and company gatherings can compete for the desired venue, so there again, planning early is key. Honeymoon destinations during winter can be more affordable, with lower fares than during the peak summer travel season; plan carefully, though, around peak holiday travel dates.

Tan offers additional advice on winter and other seasonal weddings, traditional and non-traditional wedding themes and wedding favors, detailed in her upcoming book, The Bridal Handbook by American Bridal. Geared toward brides and couples newly engaged and planning their weddings, the book will be available for sale at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in January 2009, as well as on AmericanBridal.com.

Featuring holiday ornaments, soaps and candles to do-it-yourself (DIY) favor boxes, and much more, AmericanBridal.com is the world’s favorite online wedding store for a finishing touch that leaves a lasting impression, holiday wedding favor boxes come in several styles such as snowflake favor box (with choice of candy filling), embossed elegance snowflake favor box, pine cone shaped favor boxes, snowflake take out favor boxes, and Eat, Drink and Be Merry favor boxes.

AmericanBridal.com is a popular destination for wedding favors, bridal shower favors and discount wedding favors, now serving and shipping to U.S. and international customers.

In addition to the holiday and winter collection of wedding favors, AmericanBridal.com offers the most extensive collection of wedding favors and accessories such as party favors, wedding invitations, personalized gifts, wedding ideas, wedding flowers, cake toppers, thank you cards, wedding guest favors, shower favors, wedding jewelry, wedding decorations, wedding centerpieces, bridal shower games, wedding programs, bridal jewelry, bridal shower invitations, place cards, usher gifts, wedding albums, wedding announcements, favor boxes, unity candle, wedding anniversary gift, wedding checklist, wedding bells, wedding napkins, wedding veils and much more.

Denby celebrates 200 years of producing pottery in Derbyshire with the launch of a brand new tableware range called Pure Green

In 2009 Denby celebrates 200 years of producing pottery in Derbyshire. Renowned for its quality and durability Denby’s products have evolved to meet the ever changing needs of consumers. To help Denby celebrate the bicentennial, Debenhams is stocking up on their selection, including the brand new tableware range.

While many people believe that Denby Pottery has always primarily made tableware, in fact it has produced all manner of ceramic items from ink bottles, hot water bottles, fine artware pieces to the well known and loved tableware of today. Denby has a fascinating history which is being celebrated by the launch of a brand new shaped tableware range and for this special year only, there are two limited editions in the form of a mini One Cup Teapot and a large One Pint Mug to celebrate in style

The totally new official bicentenary pattern tableware range called ‘Pure Green’ will be unique both in terms of both colour and shape and has been specifically created to welcome in Denby’s bicentenary year. Designed in-house, as with all Denby ranges, ‘Pure Green’ is subtle in tone with curvy shapes, and judging by initial reactions to the range is set to become Denby’s next generation of iconic style. Sophisticated enough for formal dining but bearing the practical qualities inherently Denby, ‘Pure Green’ will be just as suitable for more relaxed dining occasions.

As one of the biggest stockists of Denby pottery in the UK, Debenhams has welcomed the latest range which gives a refreshing twist to a classic colour combination and will sit perfectly alongside the other existing collections. There are 19 pieces in the range including extra large gourmet plates and bowls for impressive entertaining. An extra generous teapot providing 6 welcoming cups of tea for family gatherings and for occasions when a normal teacup just isn’t big enough, the small mug also fits the tea saucer.

Also available for the Bicentenary year only are six mini one cup teapots in ‘Pure Green’, ‘Linen’, ‘Truffle’, ‘Jet’, ‘Denby Imperial Blue’, and ‘China by Denby’. The Mini Teapots are ideal gifts for Collectors (of teapots and Denby) but, of course, being Denby are practical to use too. The teapots are gift boxed in beautiful packaging with black silhouette images of popular Denby pieces over the years.

Limited to production for this special year is a large One Pint Mug. Available in the Craftmans’ shape in ‘Imperial Blue’, Denby Regency Green and ‘Linen’ to celebrate 200 years in style.

The ‘Pure Green’ range, ‘One Cup Teapots’ and ‘One Pint Mugs’ will carry the official bicentenary backstamp.

About Denby
Since 1806 when William Bourne realized the value of a seam of clay which was found at Denby during work constructing a road to link the industrial towns of Derbyshire, leading to the construction of the pottery in 1809, Denby has become world famous for its stoneware products and is fast gaining a reputation for porcelain (White, White Trace and Serve) and china (China by Denby), all of which are designed for real food, not just for show.

About Debenhams:
Debenhams is a leading department stores group, and has a strong presence in key product categories including women’s wear, men’s wear, home wares, health and beauty, accessories, lingerie and children’s wear.

Debenhams has 139 stores including seven Desire by Debenhams stores, across the UK and Ireland with approximately 10.1 million square feet of trading space and around 21,500 employees.

Blackwell Online Are Seeing Strong Sales Of Business Books, Despite The Current Business And Financial Downturn

Blackwell Online, the leading UK based book retailer, has seen strong sales of its business books, despite the credit crunch continuing to have a firm grip on most companies and businesses throughout the country.

As the UK enters into a period of increased business and financial instability, the question emerges of how well equipped today’s business leaders and employees are to manage their businesses during a recession, when the prevailing trend of the past years has been one of growth and stability.

Blackwell believes this explains why Blackwell Online has seen buoyant sales in the past six weeks – including the three top selling business books “Acquisitions Essentials”, “Ideas are Free” and “Future-Engage-Deliver”.

In fact Blackwell has a wide range of books addressing the theme of financial instability. A new book on Blackwell Online’s virtual bookshelves is “Panic”. This book looks at how people’s lives are ruled by the cycle of financial boom and bust. “Panic” is a collection of articles from contemporary commentators, giving a new insight into how markets operate and who really knows what they’re talking about.

To cater for the strong interest in business books and financial books which can offer advice on how to survive a recession, Blackwell Online has pulled together a unique collection which can be viewed online on the Blackwell business books page.

About Blackwell
Blackwell is the leading book seller of medical and education texts in the UK with over 60 outlets across England, Scotland and Wales. It has built an international reputation for bookselling excellence with links to academic institutions and libraries around the globe and has continued to expand its UK base on high streets and in university campuses up and down the country.

In 1995, www.blackwell.co.uk became the first transactional online bookstore in the UK, giving people across the world access to over 150,000 titles. In 1998, Blackwell opened its central London flagship store in Charing Cross Road, the book-lovers’ Mecca. Since this time, two flagship stores, Broad Street and Charing Cross Road, have both won Chain Bookseller of the Year at the Nibbies, the annual British Book Awards.

Blackwell has now been trading for over 125 years from its world-famous flagship store at Broad Street in Oxford. Blackwell’s staff continue to be renowned for their expertise, depth of knowledge and love of books since the first Blackwell shop opened its doors.
