What’s next for Ben de Lisi?


It’s certainly been a busy year for fashion designer Ben de Lisi. The New Yorker has been putting in the hours designing the new Debenhams Principles range, which encompasses not only women’s fashion but also electricals, furniture and other homeware.

How Ben quite found time to dedicate himself to another little project, then, we’ll never know. The Pratt Institute of Art graduate was recently signed up by Coral to design this year’s Royal Ascot dress, which will be worn at the event on 17th June to raise publicity for the bookmaker.

The dress, which is said to be “inspired by jockey silks” will be modelled by an as yet unknown household name, and will later be auctioned off, along with the original designs, to raise money for the Injured Jockeys Fund.

Having noticed Ben’s keen eye for fashion on the Sky One series Project Catwalk, Coral first approached Ben in 2014 and asked him to design an exclusive dress for the prestigious racing event. It was modelled by Strictly Come Dancing Star Kristina Rihanoff and was made entirely of betting slips – later going on to cause a stir when Ms Rihanoff was turned away for breaking dress code regulations.

Needless to say Ben has learned from this experience and this year’s creation will doubtless be a little more conservative. But what else can we expect from Ben for the rest of 2015?

The 60-year-old describes his style as “American preppy with a quirky twist.” Look into any of his Debenhams collections and you will notice his signature bold prints and colours, be they women’s skirts or three-piece suites.

But could this American influence also lead him to his next style goal? Having worked with many big British names in the past including Kate Winslet and Helena Bonham Carter, Ben admits there is one American starlet he would love to style.

“I’d love to style Angelina Jolie,” he admits. He also has nothing but praise for other American stars such as Julianne Moore, whose style he describes as “not overproduced.” He says: “Julianne Moore epitomises my belief that fashion should never be so loud that you do not see the person first.”

Clearly, the star wants to work with more American actresses, but despite being born in the Big Apple himself, could we see him producing even more for Debenhams? After his designs saw the company’s profits climb by more than 4 per cent, the chain store won’t want to be getting rid of him in a hurry.

Plus, if this year’s Royal Ascot dress raises as many eyebrows as 2014’s, it doesn’t seem like our Ben will be heading back to his native homeland any time soon.

Travel health disasters and how to avoid them


When you jet off on a well-deserved holiday, you no doubt want to forget about your worries and relax and unwind. However, there are certain practical issues that you simply can’t afford to ignore, and your health is one of them. If you’re not careful, your blissful break away from home could quickly turn into a nightmare. Fortunately, help is at hand. This brief guide talks you through some possible travel health disasters, and offers top tips on how to avoid them.


If you’re travelling to a tropical or subtropical destination, you’ll need to be aware of the risk of malaria. Each year, around 1,750 people return to the UK with this serious and sometimes fatal disease, which is spread by night-biting female mosquitoes that carry plasmodium parasites. The parasites enter the bloodstream and, depending on the type, they may then multiply and do potentially serious harm.  Broadly speaking, the ill-effects can include headaches, chills, fatigue, vomiting, diarrhoea and night sweats. In the most serious cases, this can progress to anaemia, low blood sugar, abnormal liver function, kidney failure, convulsions, difficulty breathing, confusion, severe dehydration and a range of other severe symptoms.

To minimise the risk of contracting malaria, it’s important to seek advice from a travel health expert before you set off. You might need to take antimalarial tablets, and bear in mind that the courses of some of these medicines start before you set off on holiday. It’s also important to try to avoid being bitten while you’re away, especially after sunset. To do this, cover up in loose clothing and use repellents. You might also benefit from sleeping under a mosquito net impregnated with insecticide.

Infectious diseases

Of course, malaria isn’t the only disease to watch out for. Depending on where you’re going, you might also be at risk of dengue, hepatitis A and B, typhoid, rabies, meningitis, yellow fever and travellers’ diarrhoea. You’ll need to do your research before you set off and speak to a doctor to see if you require any vaccinations or medicines. You should look into this at least four to six weeks before you’re due to jet off.

Also, bear in mind that many infectious diseases are spread through food and water, so it’s wise to follow thorough hygiene guidelines. For example, don’t drink tap water or use it to brush your teeth in areas where there’s poor sanitation. Also, don’t put ice in drinks and steer clear of foods like salads, uncooked fruits and anything that has been kept at room temperature in warm environments.


Another health risk is sunburn. Severe cases may lead to painful blisters, but even mild sunburn can be highly damaging because it increases your risk of skin cancer later in life. To ensure you don’t get burned, stay out of the sun when it’s at its strongest, which is between 11am and 3pm, and apply plenty of sunscreen at least every two hours when you’re out, even if it’s overcast. When selecting a cream, go for one that has a high sun protection factor.

By following advice like this, you should be able to enjoy your holidays without experiencing any health disasters.

5 Home Comfort Essentials

Are you struggling to make your home as comfortable as it could be? It’s not as difficult to get right as you might think. Here are 5 home comfort essentials.

  1. Footrests

You don’t realize how great footrests can be until you’ve actually used one! It’s a cheap, simple item, but they improve your comfort no end when you’re sitting down. They’re especially good if you’re sitting at a desk working.

They’re backed up by science too. Using a footrest is good for your entire body and will dramatically improve your posture. When something’s comfortable and beneficial to your health, you know you have to use it!

  1. Top Quality Pillows

We often hear about the importance of having a good quality, supportive mattress to lie on at night, but what about the pillows? Yes, having a good mattress is important, but, if you’re like me, you’ll place much more value on the pillows.

Having an old mattress isn’t ideal but you can get by with it. But if you have a tired, lifeless pillows that haven’t been replaced in years, it’s pretty hard to put up with. There’s nothing better than getting into bed and resting your head on a big fluffy pillow.

  1. Great Scents

Home comfort isn’t all about physical comfort, you know. Sometimes comfort relates to the overall ambience and relaxation offered by a room. And one great way to improve a room’s ambience is by making sure it smells great.

You can use candles, air fresheners or whatever you like to make it smell nicer. But, for me, the best scent is that of home baked bread! So, why not start making your own bread? You’ll have some great food to eat, and your house will smell great.

  1. Foam Chairs

Where you sit when you’re trying to relax is vital, so don’t neglect your chairs. Of course, your sofa and armchairs are important but they have to be functional as well as comfortable. That’s why you need some foam chairs or bean bags as well.

These are extra important if you’re a gamer or you like to watch a lot of movies at home. That’s when you really need that extra comfort. There are loads of types of foam chair out there, and you can browse and find more at Find the right style to fit your room.

  1. The Perfect Pair of Slippers

Even if we don’t admit it, we all love our slippers. One of life’s great pleasures comes from getting home, kicking off your shoes and putting your slippers on. If you don’t have a pair, you should!

But what constitutes a perfect pair of slippers will change depending on the individual. Some people like to buy a new pair regularly, and others like to have an old pair that serves them well for years. It’s all about finding the ones that are right for you.

Seven Tips For A Healthier Skin


A lot of therapists are offering their services as dermatologists. You can recognize a dermatologist by their education. A dermatologist needs to complete a medical degree at a university before receiving a specialized training in dermatology. Don’t hesitate to ask your dermatologist about their specification.

Facials may not be the answer to your problems

If you tend to have acne, rosacea or have sensitive skin, the facials offered by spas and beauty salons are not a good option for you. A study showed that facials could actually made breakouts worse in 80% of cases. You should receive a medical grade facial through your dermatologist if you need one.

Your diet is important

You are more than likely aware that sugar is not good for you. However, a lot of people do not realize how foods rich in sugar affect their complexion. Making bad nutritional choices can cause your skin to age a lot faster.

Stress is bad for your skin 

There are not a lot of studies about the connection between medication and healthy skin. However, high stress levels cause your system to produce higher levels of cortisol, which causes your skin to age. Getting your stress under control will prevent your skin from aging, for instance by meditating on a daily basis.

Get your moles checked 

It is crucial to get your moles checked by a dermatologist. Ideally, you should aim and think I want to meet a dermatologist near me at least once a year. You should also examine your skin yourself at least once a month to make sure your moles still look the same.

Choose products adapted to your skin 

A lot of people with sensitive skin choose rich and thick moisturizing creams to soothe their skin. It is important to choose products adapted to your skin type to get good results. You need to choose skin care products based on your skin conditions or your skin type. Ask a dermatologist for recommendations if you are not sure products are best for you.

Be patient 

Some patients want to start treatments for acne scarring before their acne has completely disappeared. However, it is best to wait for acne to be gone before treating acne scarring. Treating acne scarring too early could worsen acne lesions. A good dermatologist should be able to prescribe an efficient treatment for acne before treating scarring.

Aqueous creams can irritate 

Aqueous creams make good substitutes for soap but you should not leave these products on as moisturizers. Some patients try leaving these creams on to get rid of eczema or soothe sensitive skin. General practitioners and pharmacists often make the mistake to recommend that patients leave these creams on. However, most aqueous creams contain sodium lauryl sulphate, a foaming agent that can irritate the skin.

Stop using face wipes

You should not using facial wet wipes instead of soap to clean your skin. These wipes can be used while you are on the go and have no other option to clean your face. However, wipes do not clean your skin as well as soap and can irritate it.

Boxing: the hottest new workout for women?


Everywhere we look around us, there is some sort of new diet or exercise fad that promises to shed the pounds within weeks. It seems we’ve tried everything from Beyonce’s Maple Syrup Diet to Chairacise, but now something has arrived which not only seems completely within the realms of possibility, but is also a great way to let off steam: boxing.

New beginnings

Without a doubt, boxing has come onto everybody’s radar in the recent months thanks to the forthcoming Mayweather Jr vs. Pacquiao fight, which will see millions of spectators betting and biting their nails on 2nd May. But far from being a sport which is primarily directed towards men, now, more and more women are choosing boxing to vent their frustrations and lose those extra pounds.

No one knows this better than the founders of Shadowbox, a new boxing studio which has just opened in New York’s Flatiron District. Daniel Glazer, founder of the club, said: “We’re going to try to bridge the gap between what’s great about the sport traditionally and bring it into the new century for women who want to be able to take a shower and blow-dry their hair and go to work afterward.”

Yes, it may be something of a boxing-ring-come-beauty-salon, but that is not to say that the regimes will not be hard work. Classes comprise shadow boxing with and without weights, heavy bag work with guided punch combinations and core and body weight exercises, all topped off with a few stretches. It particularly appeals to women, says Glazer, thanks to its lengthening and toning properties, rather than making its participants “bulk up.”

On the catwalk

Aesthetics are certainly an added benefit of this refreshing exercise, but it’s also having a substantial effect on the fashion circuit. Alexander Wang set the trend last autumn when he designed boxing gloves for his H&M collaboration. This in turn inspired Karl Lagerfield, who soon had models such as Cara Delevingne sporting lace-up boots and quilted bags in the latest campaign for Chanel. Louis Vuitton went one step further and even designed a full set of boxing accessories, retailing at an eye-watering $175,000.

It’s part of an altogether bigger ‘sportification’ trend which is currently taking the fashion world by storm for both men and women. Wei Koh, founder of The Rake Magazine, says: “There’s a blending of sportswear and formality like we’ve never seen. What’s apparent now is that we are looking for clothes that help us jump around the city, run around between meetings. It’s about comfort, technical ability and mobility.”

Of course, technical ability and mobility are two traits which any keen boxer possesses. With the new fitness trend, this is something which could be on the rise in the coming months for any New York resident looking for an exciting way of getting in shape.

Your living room: Small changes that make a big difference

If you are looking to have a living room where you and your family can relax; subtle, soft lighting can work really well and create a cosy atmosphere.

Installing a dimmer switch is also the perfect solution as this will allow you to have brighter light during day time hours and a soft dimmer light for pyjama moments and those romantic evenings in.

Add an accent wall
