Riding the waves

Riding the waves

For some, finding the perfect path in life can be as easy as taking a trip to the beach. Ryan Hervé knew instantly watching surfers at the age of nine, that this was what he would do with his life. A decision that has served him well as he is now the the owner of an established surfboard business that supplies Jersey, the UK and Europe. Once a surfing mecca, Jersey is now reclaiming some of its former glory as the sport grows in popularity and the community searches for new waters and the next great ride. For the dreamers amongst us, its comforting to know that maybe there really is something in the water.

The Accidental Agent

The Accidental Agent

To Ally Meredith an interest in sport seemed nothing more than a passing hobby, albeit quite a fanatical one. But an introduction to social media at the height of the London Olympics in 2012 launched Ally into the fast-paced world of sports media and what was a passion soon turned into a business model when athletes approached him to help them reach their full potential. Through the creation of his sports media outlet, SportsHUB, Ally now assists a number of aspiring athletes on the cusp of greatness.

The dawn of a new spa experience

The dawn of a new spa experience

It is estimated that we are exposed to some 300 chemicals on a daily basis, many of which are hidden from us and remarkably hard to avoid. Many spas now provide all-natural and chemical free treatments, but few have gone as far as Greenhouse Spa & Fitness in offering their clients the ultimate ‘green’ spa experience. With the comfort that everything in the spa is as toxin free and green as they can possibly make it, this wellness centre is not only good for your wellbeing, but good for the therapists that work there and less harmful to the environment.

Youth offers us a fresh perspective, a new way of thinking and is the foundation from which we grow and evolve. It therefore seems absurd that businesses wouldn't also want to learn from the next generation, but this is the problem a lot of companies face. One solution to this is a reverse mentoring programme where under 25 year-olds coach the more experienced professionals. It may sound a little backwards but can your business really move forward without looking back?

Beauty Queen

Beauty Queen

A trip to the Sisley counter in Voisins beauty department was a first for me in many ways. It was my first exposure to the Sisley range and the first interview that I have carried out whilst undergoing a transformation! It is here that beauty ambassador Fay Jacques works her make-up magic, talking me through her new role at Sisley, her long career at Voisins and how the move from banking to beauty has transformed her life and her face! Like all good fairytales, hers too starts with a soothing “now just close your eyes….."

First Impressions

First Impressions

You may not know this about women, but we place immense importance on first impressions. We’ll judge a date on the suitability of his socks, a colleague on the length of her skirt and celebrities on just about everything (because lets fact it they should sometimes know better.) Despite how much we’re repeatedly told never to judge a book by it’s cover, when it comes to women and their outfits somehow it always matters!
