Full, thick hair is just a few sprays away

Mane UK: The 1980s post-transplant treatment that turned mainstream

www.maneuk.com

Talking about hair loss is starting to lose its taboo but that does not make it any less difficult for those experiencing it. It is thought that around 70% of women will experience female patterned baldness by age 70 and by the age of 50 approximately 85% of men will have significantly thinner hair. Hair transplants are not a viable option for all but luckily Mane UK provides a clever solution for instant, full, thick hair in just a few sprays.

Originally a product used as a post hair transplant treatment, Mane’s Hair Thickening spray and Root Concealer quickly became a cult go-to due to its ability to instantly add volume to areas of thinning hair without the tell-tale signs of old school hair fibres. How? By using micro-mineral technology this hi-tech spray bonds to the hair transforming fine hair and gives full coverage in thinning areas. The smart formulas restore the appearance of hair back to its former glory. Their delicate spray does not weigh down the hair but instead emulates hair fibres to give an all over thickness as well as helping to perfect the hairline. End result? A thick, lustrous head of hair and immediate boosted self-confidence.

Hair loss is typically associated with a man’s fading hairline. However, it can come in many forms and vary from patterned baldness to thinning areas of the hair. Mane UK’s signature spray is designed to help those who are experiencing balding, thinning hair or can provide a bit of extra ‘umph’ for those wanting to vamp up their style. This delicate spray does not weigh down the hair but instead emulates hair fibres to give an all over thickness as well as helping to perfect the hairline.

With 11 different shades to choose from, all of which can be mixed, Mane UK is the affordable, quick solution to hair loss that can transform an individual’s confidence.

In fact, research from B&Q revealed that two-fifths of us became more motivated to do home improvement as a result of the Spring lockdown. And with more than 87 percent of people seeing their homes as their sanctuary, it’s no wonder that we’re looking for ways to improve our spaces.

Following the nation’s reignited love for home improvement, DIY gifts are set to be top of the Christmas gift list this year as shoppers look to hone their renovation skills and get a head start on 2021 projects.

Cihuatán Rum – ‘Rum of Mayan Gods’ now available in the UK

New in the UK, Cihuatán Rum from El Salvador marries the age old craft of Rum distilling with an innovative forward thinking approach inspired by their Mayan forbears, to create an exciting collection of cask aged Rums.

Established in 2004, Licorera Cihuatán is the first and only Rum distillery in El Salvador. As a division of sugar mill Ingenio La Cabaña, which has over 100 years experience in the mastering of sugarcane, Cihuatán Rum’s master distiller and blender Gabriela Ayla is able to oversee the entire production process, from sugarcane seed selection to bottling. With a patient parent company, Cihuatán has also enjoyed the luxury of time to focus on craft aged rums. All Cihuatán rums are matured for at least eight years.

Drawing inspiration from the Mayan people, who were insatiably curious, the distillery has combined the traditions of rum distilling with an innovative approach, the results of which are the production of exceptional rums. Indicative of their approach is Cihuatán Xaman XO, the distillery’s oldest release and uniquely finished in specially commissioned Mayan Ceiba casks. Recent awards include Double Gold in the 2020 Fifty Best for Cihuatán Indigo 8 Years Old.

Cihuatán Rum is located in the Cihuatán valley, El Salvador. “Cihuatán” is a nahuat word which means “next to the woman”. When viewed from the valley, the profile of the nearby mountains resemble the silhouette of a woman’s face. Legend suggests that many centuries ago, a Mayan goddess visited the valley and filled it with fertile soils and riches, so that the ancient Maya could build their city. This goddess would intercede on behalf of the people of Cihuatán to grant them favors. Cihuatán Rum is named after this goddess, and Cihuatán’s vibrant and colourful label design brings Mayan legends to life. Recently relaunched, Cihuatán’s new presentation won Double Gold in the 2020 International Spirits Challenge.

Highfern Ltd, Cihuatán’s UK importer, now offer four expressions of Cihuatán Rum:

Indigo 8 Years Old 40%
Crafted as a homage to Tlaloc, the Mayan God of rain. Blue, the colour of Tlaloc, was produced by the Mayan people from the Indigo flower.
Indigo has been matured for 8 years in former bourbon barrels and delivers hints of vanilla, cappuccino, dark chocolate, lemongrass and hazelnut.

Cinabrio 12 Years Old 40%
Crafted as a homage to Kinich Ahau, Mayan God of the sun, whose sacred colour is red. The Mayan people used the mineral Cinabrio to make red dye.
Cinabrio has been matured for 12 years in former bourbon barrels and delivers plum, caramelised orange peel, pistashio and toasted oak on the taste.

Sahumerio 45.2%
Cihuatán Sahumerio is the distillery’s 2020 limited edition rum crafted as a celebration of love. A “Sahumerio” is an incense burner, in which the Mayan would burn treats for Chantico, the Mayan Goddess of love.
Inspired by the Mayan sahumerio rituals, Cihuatán’s master blender Gabriela Ayala has carefully blended 12 to 14 years old light and heavy rums to create Sahumerio, with a flavour profile that includes incense, honey, cacao butter, dried apricots and dried myrtle, to replicate the gifts the Maya would burn to celebrate love.

Xaman XO 40%
Named after Xaman, Mayan God of the North Star, the protector of Cihuatán valley. Xaman was believed to rest on sacred Ceiba trees, the Mayan tree of life.
Initially matured for 15 years in former bourbon barrels, Xaman XO is then finished for one year in specially created Mayan Ceiba barrels. This delivers a unique flavour profile of panela glazed bacon, clove, balsamic toast, leather, prunes and grilled pineapple.

Commenting on the release, Robert Ransom from Highfern Ltd said, ‘Cihuatán oozes provenance, is presented in exceptional packaging which celebrates the Maya’s rich history, and above all else, tastes wonderful. We look forward to introducing Cihuatán to British rum lovers’.

Amongst others Cihuatán Rum is available from Drinkfinder, Master of Malt and Shop4Whisky, with prices starting from GBP 39.99 for Cihuatán Indigo.

London, 12th November 2020: International premium fashionable-technology brand, AVITA, today launches its LIBER V 14” Windows Notebook series in the UK. Continuing to build upon AVITA’s bold and innovative philosophy, the LIBER V offers an unprecedented visual experience with its boundless ultra-narrow bezel and post-modern aesthetic. The LIBER V R3 is now available from Currys PC World for £459.99 and the LIBER V R5 from Currys PC World for £559.99 in Matt Black.

The expansion of the notebook’s webcam, coupled with its ultra-wide screen, brings users an improved experience, particularly useful for video conferencing whether social or work related. Equipped with professional-level functionality and a mainly metallic chassis, the LIBER V meets diverse multi-tasking needs whilst still being a stylish and sleek design aesthetically too.

The LIBER V’s design is inspired by Ricardo Bofill, the architect known for his “Visions of Architecture.” The LIBER V mimics his fortresses’ designs with neat geometric lines and the extremely slim chassis, featuring an easy-to-open clip with a top-mounted 720p HD webcam, offers a much improved shooting angle.

The LIBER V is engineered with further advancements including an impressive 78.2% screen-to-body ratio and also weighs in at approximately 1.30kg, making it easy to fit in a bag to use when out and about and an ideal travel partner. Its 3.7mm boundless ultra-narrow bezel is at least 10% slimmer than other similar notebooks on the market and has been reduced by approximately 63% compared with previous LIBER series notebooks. Along with the ultra-wide viewing angle of 178 degrees, the LIBER V creates an excellent viewing experience for users. The LIBER V also adapts a full HD 16:9 IPS display with anti-glare, allowing presentation of detailed images clearly with a stable response time under indoor and outdoor environments, further improving the visual and auditory enjoyment for users.

AVITA understands the increasingly diverse needs of young professionals, and so the LIBER V certainly packs a punch. With AMD Ryzen™ 3 3200U and AMD Ryzen™ 5 3500U processor options for high performance speed, Radeon Vega 3 (R3) and Vega 8 (R5) graphics chip and 4GB DDR4 (R3) and 8GB DDR4 (R5) RAM, the LIBER V can swiftly process and access files, allowing the user to work with ease; even with complex workflows. The superfast 256GB SSD internal memory (microSD card slot supporting up to an additional 2TB, subject to compatibility) ensures the notebooks are able to start up in a lightning quick speed of less than 20 seconds.

Available with Windows 10 Home, the LIBER V’s full-size backlit keyboard delivers the ultimate word processing experience. Additionally, the extra-large touchpad and multi-touch support for up to four fingers enables users to effortlessly browse and switch between web pages. The LIBER V incorporates a fingerprint reader and works seamlessly with Windows Hello for both convenient log-in and strengthened privacy protection. Users can rest assured that every piece of work and personal data is well protected.

The LIBER V’s battery life lasts for 7.5 hours for working on the go and the notebook is equipped with complete connectivity: a set of USB-C, two sets of USBs, a full-size HDMI and Micro SD ports, making it possible to simultaneously charge, transfer data, display, and connect to various devices. Also included are two full-range speakers, dual-radio microphones, 4.2 Bluetooth, thus delivering a truly personal mobile office.

The AVITA LIBER V 14” R3 Windows Notebook is available in Matt Black from Currys PC World for £459.99 and the LIBER V R5 from Currys PC World for £559.99

Chococo’s NEW Mug to Hug & Hot Chocolate Gift Set

NEW Mug to hug & hot chocolate gift set (£17.50/mug + 125g dark chocolate flakes) New for 2020, and a lovely way to send someone a virtual hug, is this giftset of a Chococo enamel hug mug & tube of 70% Madagascar origin dark chocolate flakes, all wrapped in compostable cellophane. Vegan-friendly if made with any plant milks, this Raisetrade chocolate is our 70% house hot chocolate as served in every Chococo chocolate house.

www.chococo.co.uk/hot-chocolate-flakes-enamel-mug-set.html

Despite the extraordinary year that 2020 has become, the Chococo chocolatiers, led by founders Claire & Andy Burnet, have focused on ensuring that they can offer their annual festive favourites, as well several new ideas, to delight their customers both online and in their 4 Chocolate Houses across the south. So you will find selection boxes filled with handcrafted award-winning, festive chocolates & truffles, chocolate biscuit cakes, fruit & nut salamis and new hamper bags to share, a chocolate subscription club to delight into 2021 and a new wider range of fabulous faceted baubles, from sweet Gold caramelised white to 100% sugar-free Totally Dark chocolate. Many of their items are also naturally vegan-friendly.

As well as working with fine single origin chocolate, including their bespoke 45% house milk chocolate made with Venezuela origin cocoa beans and Raisetrade chocolate produ ced in country of origin by Chocolaterie Robert in Madagascar & Casa Luker in Colombia, Chococo has been a pioneer in being one of the first UK chocolatiers to make truly fresh chocolates, with no additives or preservatives, with local ingredients. Championing local, seasonal produce is part of the DNA of Chococo and over the years they have worked with food & drink producers across the South West using local honey, preserves, fruits, herbs, wines, spirits and fresh Dorset cream to craft its mouth-watering and deliciously unique creations.

Their passion for flavour has resulted in them winning over 90 fine food awards to date including; Great Taste Awards, International Chocolate Awards & Academy of Chocolate Awards. Claire & Andy were also voted Dorset’s Food Hero in the 2019 Dorset Food, Drink & Farming Awards in recognition of their support of all things local since they set the business up back in 2002.

Chococo also cares about the impact of its packaging on the environment and always has done – for example, since launch in 2002, its iconic selection boxes have had cardboard grids inside to hold each chocolate in place, never plastic vac forms. Today, 100% of their packaging is either compostable, recycled or recyclable. For more information please see the notes to editors section.

All the items listed below are available to order online at its new website www.chococo.co.uk and from Chococo’s four Chocolate Houses in Swanage, Dorset; Winchester, Hampshire; Exeter, Devon; and Horsham, West Sussex.
