It has never been easier to make a statement with fashion, Nail art is proving to be ever popular and a trend that looks to be staying with us for a while.

We are all aware, when it comes to accessorizing, the finishing touches are often the most important, it’s often the small things that can make a big difference to any look.  Wearing a colour popping  fabulous pair of shoes, or a statement necklace is enough to transform a little black dress, from simple to unforgettable in a flash.  Bright red lips made popular in recent times by singers, Gwen Steffani and Xristina Aguilera, both famed for being trend setting fashionistas will glam up any daytime look, in one swipe of a lip brush.  This season we have seen a creative theme across the board with clothes, makeup and shoes,  but the most popular is right there at our fingertips, Nail art.

The colour choices we have  to adorn our nails in is infinite, but now ladies, its time to go that one step further, our nails have become a blank canvas for imagination, colour, and art.

A trend that was only once possible to achieve by taking ourselves to the nail salon, and most likely costing us a small fortune, has now become a trend that we can experiment with, in the comfort of our homes.  More and more labels and cosmetics companies, are being brave and producing a range of nail art products made easy for us to use at home. From a simple high shine metallic silver or gold nail colour, from the likes of Benefit and Channel, to art pens, from Sally Hanson, and L’oreal, which have slim tips, making it easy for us to add a splash of colour, using polka dots and stripes, and lets not forget the magic of the nail foil, Rio nail products and Barry M have a range of intricate patterns already printed on a thin foil that easily coats your nail leaving your nails look like they have had a professional makeover.

The possibilities are endless, from chic to grunge, sweet to quirky, there are no holds barred when it comes to ideas, we have seen nails transformed into strawberries, tuxedo’s, and even computer game characters.

So whatever the occasion, whatever your style, be bold, get those fingernails popping.

Let’s unroll the red carpet and get ready to enjoy a couple of hours of great music.

WHEN the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge formally open The FA National Football Centre at St. George’s Park in Staffordshire today (October 9th) it will mark the hard work of head groundsman Alan Ferguson and his 12 staff to get 12 pitches to a peak level of perfection.

Set in National Forest, the site covers 330 acres and includes two hotels, a sports science facility and FA offices. The 12 pitches include 10 natural and two synthetic . . . and the synthetic indoor facility is the largest in the UK.

Alan, formerly Head Groundsman of Ipswich Town FC, has masterminded the three stages of development -construction, operational and completion.

“It has been an enormous project to co-ordinate all of the grass areas as well as the utilities, floodlighting and irrigation but we have come through the construction side and are now in the operational phase,” says Alan.

St. Georges Park is unique in that it offers four different pitch profiles; a Desso GrassMaster (grass plus artificial fibres), plus four fibresand, five natural turf and two 3G synthetic surfaces.

“Since the initial renovation the pitches have not been affected particularly by the poor weather as they are well constructed and well-drained,” says Alan. “The worst areas are the surroundings which have been too wet to fully landscape.” To make the project run smoothly Alan targeted specific companies and suppliers to work with. These companies were cor reliability, back-up support and expertise.
Kate and wills arrived in style by helicopter, and met the England foot all squad before opening the stadium, they then enjoyed an historical match on the new pitch. Kate wore a beautiful grey coat from one of her favourite stores reiss.

Funding for Children’s Arts Under the Spotlight as UK Gears up for the Games

A number of public figures and leading lights in the art world are putting their weight behind a campaign by national charity, Action for Children’s to draw attention to the lack of public funding invested in art for children.   As young people across the UK look set to benefit from the sports legacy of the 2012 Olympics, Action for Children’s Arts is calling for the arts not to be overlooked. Findings from a report published on 1 June outline that children up to the age of 12 make up fifteen per cent of the UK population but only get one per cent of the arts funding.

The report – based on Freedom of Information requests made by the charity – questions the current funding policies of the national Arts Councils and the British Film Institute, as well as the programming policies of flagship arts organisations including the BBC.   Children’s author, Michael Morpurgo, will join other distinguished speakers in asking what can be done to make sure that the arts make their vital contribution to the well-being of all children at a conference taking place at the Unicorn Theatre in London on 19 June.   Among the proposals that Action for Children’s Arts will put forward at the conference are:

• Making 15% the benchmark for children’s share of public funding for the arts

• Making children’s arts part of the remit of leading arts organisations

• Making children’s film and television a national responsibility

Action for Children’s Arts Patron and Children’s Champion, Peter Duncan, says:

 “While it’s fantastic that sport is receiving so much positive attention this year, we must be careful not to neglect the arts. The programmes of most cultural organisations in the UK are child-free zones. Typically, organisations spend around three per cent of their budgets on education activities and around one per cent on productions or exhibitions aimed directly at children. The case we want to make is for children to have a fair share of the available funding. That doesn’t mean less for adults, children don’t go to the theatre or cinema on their own, art is a shared experience.”

“Children’s imaginations are stimulated through reading, singing and dancing, watching plays and films. The attitudes, values and skills that we learn in childhood stay with us for the rest of our lives”, he adds.

In the wake of successive reports, such as those from UNICEF, the Children’s Society, Barnardo’s and the Mothers’ Union, each raising concerns about the state of childhood in Britain today, Action for Children’s Arts aims to draw attention to the positive contribution that the arts can and should make to children’s well-being.   Speakers at the conference include:

Dr Maggie Atkinson, Children’s Commissioner for England

Sharon Hodgson MP, Shadow Minister for Children & Families

Aileen Campbell MSP, Minister for Children & Young People, Scottish Government

Aideen McGinley, Chief Executive, Ilex, Northern Ireland

“I love being an ambassador for Rays of Sunshine. Every day of the year the charity adds a touch of sparkle into the lives of brave and deserving children. The Rays of Sunshine Concert will bring hundreds of children together for a precious night of fun and I’m so happy to be a part of it.”

Amongst the audience will be 1500 seriously ill children who have previously had their wishes granted by Rays of Sunshine. These will include 14-year-old  Isabelle  from Barnet who is living with Congenital Pseudarthrosis of the tibia. On the day of the concert Isabelle will be fulfilling her wish to go for a shopping spree at Lipsy in Brent Cross before coming to the concert and meeting Pixie Lott.   17-year-old Wasim  from Harrow.   Wasim had a liver transplant last year and was doing very well. Unfortunately, as a result of the transplant has developed a life threatening illness which is currently undiagnosed. Last year Rays of Sunshine fulfilled his wish to cook with Gordon Ramsay at Claridges Hotel. He also attended a recent reception hosted by Samantha Cameron at No 10 Downing Street.   Katie, 10 years old,  from Lambhill, Glasgow is living with Neurofibromatosis (tumours) diagnosed in 2007. Katie’s greatest wish was to design a giant teddy bear and name it after her consultant, Jennifer. In August last year, Katie designed her giant bear complete with a pink spotty dress and pink bow in her hair!

Miley Cyrus has announced her Engagement to her long time boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.

In an interview with People Magazine, American actress and singer Miley Cyrus, talks about her relationship with the australian actor, among other things in her life and says

“I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam”…

which led to the magazine reporting the news earlier today (wed june 6).  Cyrus, 19, and Hemsworth, 22, met on set, whilst filming the movie “The Last Song” in 2009, and have dated ever since, with a few short-lived splits back in 2010 and early 2011.  Liam Hemsworth has had recent success with his latest role, in the ht movie “The Hunger Games“, planting his firmly on the hollywood Actors list.  Miley Cyrus shot to fame for her role of Miley Stewart and Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel.   The show and Miley herself became a global phenomenon, as t was beamed into their living rooms of ‘tweens’ across the globe.  She sang all the songs involved in the show including the theme tune, then embarked on “Best Of Both Worlds” world-wide tour under her Disney Character pseudonym.   Breaking away from her Disney persona, In July 2008, Cyrus released her first solo album, Breakout (2008), which was successful in its own right.

It is thought that Hemsworth proposed to the pop country star on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring.  Some Hollywood on-set romances are doomed before they even start, but this clearly isn’t the case for Miley and Liam, who have stood the test of time, and are now ready to embark in the next chapter of their lives, Marriage.

Women are misdiagnosing themselves on the internet .

photo by T.Dilger

One in four British women has misdiagnosed themselves on the internet, a study revealed yesterday.   Researchers have found that Dr Google is now the first port of call for women with genuine health concerns, who are almost twice as likely to check online before consulting a doctor or even talking to Mum.   A trend towards trusting the internet over friends, family and medical professionals meant half of the 1,000 women studied would first try to treat an ailment themselves rather than risk embarrassment or the inconvenience of waiting times for GP appointments.

But searching their symptoms online and self-medicating has led a tenth of the country’s women to endure unpleasant side effects as a result of their misdiagnosis.   The research, which was commissioned by feminine health brand Balance Activ, found a quarter of British women will trust the internet for advice on treatments if they find their symptoms embarrassing.   Penny McCormick, spokesperson for Balance Activ said yesterday: ”There is an increasing trend towards using the internet to diagnose any irregularities or worries we have about our bodies.   ”The web gives us a wealth of information that can be useful in reducing our worries until we’re able to gain proper advice from a medical authority if it’s needed, but the results show how easy it is to make mistakes when diagnosing ourselves.   ”It’s important we learn which information to trust online and that we’re able to make the distinction between what can be self-diagnosed and easily treated, and what definitely requires the help of a medical professional. What can seem like a relatively harmless but embarrassing symptom could develop into something more serious so it is important for women to ensure they are asking the right questions and treating certain conditions effectively in the first instance.”

The report also found despite having diagnosed themselves online and decided on a high street treatment, 45 per cent never they are buying the right thing with a pharmacist or counter staff.   The agonising wait for answers is what drives thirty per cent of women to look for help online, which is a growing factor of the ‘instant’ life we all live in these days,  while one in ten hesitate to tell friends or family of any health problems because they don’t want the issue to be ‘made into a fuss’.

Tellingly, three-quarters of the 1,000 women surveyed from all ages and all walks of life, said there are certain health issues they aren’t comfortable talking to friends and family about.   Indeed, women are more likely to trust their own diagnosis when embarrassed by their symptoms – half of the study would always try to deal with the problem themselves before seeking help from others.   Over a quarter of respondents dread talking to doctors about anything they are embarrassed about.   Most women had spent a few days worrying over symptoms before speaking to anyone.   Because of waiting times, thirty per cent only visit the doctor as a last resort, while half of the women studied said they would always try all they can to cure themselves and only seek medical advice if the problem didn’t go away.

So ladies, if you are worried about any health problems, embarrassed by a certain symptom, or feel like you just don’t have time to visit your GP, find time.  It is so important for us all to stay healthy, and be dianosed correctly, at anytime that we find our health any less that 100%, and of course recieve the correct treatment.
