If you #Chelfie when you shop you need new app @Pollpic

jeans

Reportedly celebs like Jessie J are doing it: that is posting selfies from the changing room and sharing them in order to decide what outfit to buy.

The #Chelfie – highlighted recently in an article by The Sunday Times – is actually what inspired self-confessed techie Ranjet Chohan to create his app Pollpic.

My wife was always sending me changing room selfies of different clothes asking me which one I liked but she was also sending the same photos to several of her best friends,’ Ranjet explains ‘,And me being pressed for time (impatient) I wanted a better way to respond like swiping the image to show if I liked it. But I also secretly wanted to know what her friends thought so I could see how bad my taste in clothes really is…’

Pollpic allows the user to create image based polls in a few fast clicks and get opinions on them in real time. Polls can seamlessly be shared through Facebook and Twitter and votes are summarized instantly. In the case of the #Chelfie this makes the whole process simple and seamless – snap, post and the user can decide whether to put the vote to their friends alone or the internet at large.

‘Thousands of young people are turning their backs on shop assistants and instead using technology to ask their friends for advice from afar.’ (Sunday Times*)

In fact, Shopa (fashion website) identified the fact that not only is the #Chelfie trend growing steadily but women need on average three ‘likes’ from their friends before buying an item – men hold out for four!

Pollpic is currently available free for iPhone and Android phones in the Appstore and Playstore. Of course, it can be used to get an opinion on anything – not just which jeans to buy – and is already also proving popular with sports and music fans.

Liquid Gold Drinks offers the chance to celebrate August Bank Holiday Italian style (and gratis)

0001 0003

Liquid Gold Drinks – purveyors of elegant dry prosecco – have found the perfect gift solution for people who seemingly have everything… and also a little something for those worried about the recent horror stories about the global prosecco shortage.

During August Bank Holiday weekend, when a customer orders a gift box containing two striking coloured metallic bottles online to be sent to a friend, Liquid Gold will generously send the gift giver one of their classic bottles absolutely free – to be sure they never run short of prosecco, Britain’s favourite party fizz.

Liquid Gold Prosecco is a DOC Treviso Extra Dry which is made from grapes of the Conegliano’s hills its flavour is distinctive due to selective ingredients that release an aromatic and fruity bouquet. It is available in a classic bottle (green) or a choice of six metallic colourways (red, gold, silver, pink, aqua, dark blue) which are an ideal way to send a statement present to celebrate an occasion such as a birth, a silver, gold or ruby anniversary – or perhaps choose the colours of your loved one’s favourite sports team?

The bottles have been adding a colour pop to vibrant parties all over Europe; from Monaco to London’s West End.

Liquid Gold CEO Marino Roberto says: “, The Liquid Gold brand was created to help merge the fashion conscious individual with high-end design and Italian quality. The sleek metallic bottles make an excellent gift choice for a celebration but the classic bottle is great to open anytime as an aperitif with friends. August in Italy is traditionally a holiday month, so we’re giving our customers a little bit of Italian sparkle, on us.”

Of course, the more frugal might choose to lay down their complimentary bottle for fear the prosecco harvests run dry. But Marino Roberto is confident that the drink is here to stay and one should live in the moment.

The Liquid Gold Gift box containing two metallic bottles costs £50, to include UK delivery and in a specified choice of colours. Upon ordering, customers will be personally contacted to arrange delivery of their free classic bottle.

LIQUID GOLD BRINGS ITALIAN SOPHISTICATION TO THE UK

liquid-gold-prosecco-702x336

Liquid Gold introduces its bespoke Prosecco: combining sleek, elegant, statement design with exceptional taste.

Created for the global luxury & fashion markets, which accepts nothing but the best, Liquid Gold has a unique look and taste, which ensures it stands out to its competitors.

The flavour of the Liquid Gold Prosecco is distinctive due to the selective ingredients that release an aromatic and fruity bouquet, yet are dry and elegant by taste making it the ideal drink for an aperitif.

The Prosecco can be ordered in its classic dark green bottle form or can be ordered in a range of opulent metallic colours, to enhance any theme or occasion.

Liquid Gold Prosecco is now available in the UK and will be served at some of London’s most exclusive venues and events. Several high-end restaurants have already begun stocking Liquid Gold Prosecco including Zafferano in Mayfair, with other exclusive eateries in London and the UK soon to be announced

Liquid Gold prides itself on creating true Italian products and their bespoke Prosecco is no exception. Made in the North-eastern regions of Italy, Liquid Gold Prosecco is a sparkling white wine that has the complexities and depth of flavour often associated with Champagne.

CEO Marino Roberto, who founded the brand, believes there is great potential for further growth of Prosecco in the UK. Having owned a Michelin star Mayfair restaurant, in addition to owning high-end fashion stores, he has combined his passions in the form of Liquid Gold-

‘’ The Liquid Gold brand was created to help merge the fashion conscious individual with high-end design and Italian quality. We believe the unique metallic colour ranges and elegant bottle design will help to enhance the popularity of the Prosecco drink. This we feel will help to create a market amongst trade and consumers who may consider the ranges for gifts or for personal indulgences at home. We hope our customers enjoy the experience in every possible way.’’

The fuller and more varied Prosecco is becoming increasingly popular with 307 million bottles sold in 2013 globally. In the UK, Prosecco sales increased by 80% in 2012 making it the most popular sparking wine on the market. Prosecco now regularly outsells champagne in the UK and this trend shows no signs of slowing.

The publics drinking habits are reflecting the above trend with many people now exchanging the somewhat more costly Champagne for the more versatile and cost effective Prosecco, both when dining out and staying in.

Liquid Gold products are already a success in bars, clubs and commercial aspects across European luxury markets; the brand has hosted events at the Monte Carlo F1 Grand Prix, VIP events at the infamous Zest Monaco Club and launches in Saint- Tropez in recent months and will be hosting an exclusive event in conjunction for the Monaco Grand Prix 2015.

This year, as Liquid Gold Prosecco showcases in the UK, expect to see the eye- catching range of bottles at the most exclusive venues and events.

Asian Dub Foundation to play Dubrovnik’s Orsula Park as part of CMA (Croatian Music Adventures) – 28th July 2015

Voted #3 in the ‘World’s Most Epic Outdoor Rave Destinations’ by Pulse Radio and ranking #5 in Beatport’s guide to unbelievable party locations, the truth about Orsula Park is that you have to see it to believe it.

Originally built in the 14th century as a shrine to Virginal Saint Ursula, the church was then destroyed in some Russian-Montenegrin- Serbian conflict circa the 1800s and has remained a beautiful ruin ever since.

Well, that is, until the Innervisions crew made it a stop on their Lost in a Moment tour and suddenly the legends stopped being folklore and began to be electronic music based.

Recently reunited Asian Dub Foundation will perform at Orsula Park on 28th July and bring their spirit of rebellion to such a beautiful, historic and prestigious venue.

This will be their first appearance on the Croatian coast and will follow the release of their latest album ‘More Signal and More Noise’ on July 10th.  The band now consists of Steve Sava, Dr Das, Akatava, Ghetto Priest, Nathan Flutebox Lee, Rocky Singh and their set will include music spanning many eras of the band; jungle rhythms, dub, punk rock guitar, sitar and traditional Indian melodies.

Tickets

Tickets for Asian Dub Foundation concert can be purchased online via www.ulaznice.hr and through retail outlets system ulaznice.hr

Travel

British Airways, Croatian Airways, Wizz Air, Monarch, Jet2 and EasyJet operate flights to Dubrovnik. More info here

Beautiful Jewellery on show at The Elite London 2015

Sally Agarwal and D’Joya were amongst the designers on show at the exclusive luxury lifestyle event The Elite London 2015.

Now in its second year and taking place at Biggin Hill airport, The Elite London is a platform for luxury brands to trade, network and showcase their designs.

Sally Agarwal

Sally Agarwal’s jewellery is meticulously handcrafted from 18-carat yellow gold and sumptuous coloured gemstones to showcase Polki diamonds. These natural diamonds are mined from the earth, and have been prized in their uncut form for centuries. Sally Agarwal Fine Jewellery brings new life to Polki. Her one-off designs capture the graphic beauty, characterful depth and opulent glow of superior Polki diamonds with inimitable flair and opulent modernity.Sally exhibited a selection from her Polki collection.

D’Joya exhibited their ‘Heirlooms’ Collection.

From the very beginning D’Joya’s exquisite miniature sculptures have been lead first by the story, the provenance and the setting. Behind each intricate creation is a wonderful tale inspired by subjects such as the timelessness of nature and love, or simply art itself. The enchanted D’Joya enthusiast is drawn in by this narrative and is connected personally, forming an immediate circle of trust between the client and the brand, a bond which will be passed on from generation to generation of family members as a wearable heirloom.

The pieces themselves are created by hand via D’Joya’s team of highly skilled craftsman, using time-honoured techniques and utilizing the very highest quality gems and stones that ultimately embody the very best in design, composition & cut. From the front of the piece to the back, every milometer is considered, in fact the back can often be so wonderfully crafted that the wearer will almost treat it like their best kept secret.

Each collectable item from D’Joya provides a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity. Being such an exquisite art form no two pieces are the same, so the philosophy of the client must be – if you see, you fall in love with it and cannot imagine life without it then you must grasp the opportunity there and then as once it is gone, it is gone forever. This is way of working entirely surpasses the unique. These pieces are not numbered they are simply one off.
