Once we start
.1pppr'aching November, the holiday
spirit slowly makes its way into my
in-dnl Maybe its because my birthday is
A.t die start of the month, or maybe its
simply because I am always looking for
a ,r.,son to throw a fabulous shindig!
.\s the festive season nestles its way in, I
suLir dreaming of divine concoctions with
s,''nr,. key elements such as sparkling wine,
IKN,,cs, chocolate and peppermint, paired
-. lh canapes, and, everything is made
,'n-i"L beautiful with rich jewel tones, lots
01 sparkles and twinkling lights. This
.k has been no different, sparkling
i ie has captured my imagination.
I thingg says celebrations like bubbly,
.11d nothing instantly evokes feelings
',f glamour like a glass of champagne.
One thing I really like about sparkling
wine is its versatility. There are so
many wonderful and easy ways to
enjoy sparkling wines, and so many
opportunities to be creative, all at
an affordable price. And please
don't be mistaken, I am no wine
expert. The truth is, you don't
have to do much to have a fabulous
time drinking sparkling wine, so,
I decided to treat myself and my
friends to a small Sparkling Wine
tasting, and file it under research!
SOf course, no such evening is
complete without fabulous music
to set the tone. So, with the tunes
of Quantic and Putomayo's World
Lounge pulsating through the air,
the night had the perfect rhythmic
backdrop. The ambience was
made complete by the inviting
bouquet of vanilla-scented
candles and light pink Lisianthus blooms.
Here is what we had fun with that evening:
A mix of frozen strawberries or your
preferred berry, your choice of sparkling
wine and ginger ale. This is a great choice as
a signature drink for an event, because you
get the bubbles and you get to "stretch" it by
adding ginger ale, which is a great cost-saver.
As the name dictates, simply pour your glass
of bubbly and then use a small melon scoop
to get a perfectly shaped ball of your favourite
store-bought raspberry sorbet. Sticking a few
berries on a wooden skewer and placing it in
the flute is another way to enjoy your wine,
or just simply make it pretty.
We enjoyed this sparkling wine as it was
intended, poured straight from bottle into
our flutes, with no additions. So very lovely!
We also nibbled on yummy chocolate truffles
to heighten our bliss.
So, with our energies high, and our taste
buds fully stimulated after a few rounds of
everyone's favourite aperitif, we decided to
have a late night dinner at one of our favourite
spots. We chatted and laughed some more.
What a way to kick-start the silly season!
SO VERY LOVELY

Walk Good Jamaica/havaianas and Panache Jamaica Magazine
(PJM) launches a campaign and photo competition in tribute to
Brazilian and Jamaican cultural traditions.
always surprising for its insightful "out of the left field" graphic design, the
Walk Good/havaianas communication campaign for 2010 pays a tribute
to the brand's Brazilian-culture heritage and the Caribbean's mysterious
and magical island of Jamaica, home of a unique and incredibly tenacious
people. Not only the most comfortable and durable rubber sandals of the
world, havaianas is synonymous with fashion, adventure and an entire
new approach to life. Walk Good believes in the power of our creativ-
ity joined together into positive action to break the old stereotypes and
evolve in harmony with our surroundings. Feel good, walk free!
"We have used Brazilian symbols to create a "mandala" of colors, that are unusual to the eyes
but powerful and awakening, just like havaianas. Clich6s are real and authentic, bringing a
sense of self to the rubber sandals you choose to wear. Discovering yourself and being just
like havaianas, brave and full of soul is the feelings our creative team wishes you to perceive
through the art work.
Walk Good's creative team points out the greater impact of the images when establishing
the center of the page as the starting point for the graphic representations, which from
this axis, transmit the impression they will pop-up from the page. The production of this
nearly cultural manifest waived the use of graphic computing, resulting in a work of
craftsmanship rich in details, which demonstrates the attention of havaianas in regards to
the culture from its country and the respect it has to all other cultures. All the images, such
as the soccer player, the "baiana", Carmem Miranda, and the Copacabana boardwalk were
produced, clipped and manually put together to finally be photographed. The combination
of items in each campaign piece was done very carefully allowing the perceptive eye to
discover details of this Brazilian essence and its counterpart in Jamaica.
The campaign is composed of 3 pieces
which will be presented at the centerpiece of
Panache' Jamaica's online magazine during
2010 bimonthly editions and will be marked
by a variety of fervent, fun and conscious
cultural actions, like Facebook's photographic
competition "My Beloved Pair of havaianas
and How I Live Life" which will award
JMD$100,000.00 in havaianas products to the
3 first contestants chosen by a panel of judges
appointed by PJM's Editor-in-Chief, Tricia
Williamson and Walk Good's CEO, Vanessa
Firstly, the piece that has soccer as the main
theme was developed with the colors of the
Brazilian flag. This ad shows the Maracana
stadium in Rio de Janeiro, the dance-like
celebration of the players, the Rio de Janeiro
beach boardwalks and the natural exuberance
of the so-called Wonderful City, elements
that reflect the Brazilian passion for soccer's
ability to bring the subconscious mind into
play and Rio's free and healthy lifestyle, just
like havaianas it speaks of being centered and
In the second ad, the core element is the
Portuguese-Brazilian singer and actress
Carmem Miranda. As a top Brazilian-
culture icon, her flamboyant behavior quickly
conquered the world, just like havaianas.
Between 1930 and 1960, the actress had an
intense career in Brazil and the United States.
She worked in radio, the theater, movies and on
TV Famous for using large turbans decorated
with exotic fruits and objects, she is considered
the predecessor of Tropicalism, a Brazilian
cultural movement that appeared in the late
In the third piece of the campaign, references
from popular literature compose the country's
landscape. The so-called "cord6is" are booklets
printed on rustic paper with xylography
illustrations. Initially, they were exposed
for sale hanging from strings ("corda" in
Portuguese), which is where the name "Cordel"
comes from. This traditional form of literature,
many times mentioned in a cadenced rhythm
by regional artists, seduces the Brazilians to
this day, just like havaianas. The themes are
varied, but almost always portray the tough
life in the Northeastern region of Brazil and
the creative spirit of the "nordestino" people
overcoming adversity with the joined
efforts of its communities for peace,
understanding and commitment to
Religiousness, faith and superstition,
striking traits of the Brazilian people,
are portrayed in this campaign by
the famous Senhor do Bonfim (Lord
of Bonfim) ribbon. What few people
know, is that when created in 1809,
its original name was mediaa do
Bonfim" (Bonfim measurement), since
the ribbon measured 47 centimeters
in length, the exact size of the right
arm of the Jesus Cristo Senhor do
Bonfim (Jesus Christ Lord of Bonfim)
image that stood on the high altar
of the most famous church in Bahia.
Presently, the ribbon is considered
a luck charm, present on wrists
throughout the country and used by
people of all ages, religions and social
classes just like havaianas.
Walk Good is the exclusive
distributor of havaianas to Jamaica
and the Caribbean region. Look
for our authorized retailer sign in
Kingston at Ammars, Craft Cottage,
Lee's Fifth Avenue, Manor Park,
Liguanea and Lee's Pharmacy's and

k Star and
wilbe in tune this
hristmas season. It's
over the top, lots of
sparkle and tonnes of
dark rich colours and
textures. Bold yes,
well yes baby, this is
Sized UP living. Here are a few rock moves
that will get us back stage.
The darker the better, the richer the best.
Blacks, blues, deep purples, jewel tones
of green and yes red, it's Christmas after
all. These are the colours of true rock star
stature. Mix them, wear grades of or keep
it straight you will not go wrong.
Leggings that look like liquid, metal or
leather are the perfect addition for layering,
under extra short tops or just to add an
edge to a funky dress. Animal prints and
distressed ones are really cool too for any
look. Remember not to mix animal prints
but do add the glitter.
Jumpsuits have been seen on all the
runways and spotted on all the stars. In
shorts, pants in denim, prints whatever
shape or shade jumpsuits are all the rave
this season. Don't forget the really high
heels ladies cause that is how we roll.
Less is more and matching is best does not
apply here. The bigger, more sparkly and
glitzy the better. Metallic jewellery with
large stones are show stoppers. Redo an
outfit simply with changing yourjewellery.
Layer them, mix them up but more, more
and big is never too big. Clothing that
are jewelled embellished with gems and
rhinestones are great.
The must have piece to have this season
is our long convertible dress. Yes it now
comes long. Available in black, red, purple,
blue and olive and over 22 ways to wear,
the possibilities are endless.

By Carolyn Correia
ime after time we find ourselves
stuck in the moment. That one
moment in time that we thought
was the zenith of our lives...
the be-all-and-end-all of our
existence. The thing is, life is an
evolution and there are always new
adventures to behold. If we prevent
ourselves from experiencing new
things, how do we know what else
is out there? Be it a career, location or thing
there is always more to experience. The day
we wake up and tell ourselves that this is all
there is to life, is the day we stop living.
For many of us, we want one of those TV
lives that we see when we're surfing for a
good movie, where everything is perfect and
surreal. The truth is that those things only
happen on television and those actors actually
have real lives like us. Often times we look at
others and it triggers our jealousies as we
wish perhaps that maybe we could step into
that person's shoes if only for a moment or we
ask ourselves why are some people blessed
with such good luck and fortune. The reality is
that people often create their own fortune and
we don't know anything about their hardships,
sacrifices or trials. Comparisons can make us
doubt ourselves and what we have achieved

A stunning debut for KOD,
the Caribbean Fashion Boutik
in Guade oupe
A sold out selected crowd discovered during three
inaugural nights the exclusive offer of Caribbean
Fashion through the 1st joint distribution network
in the region...
The buzz was inflating in the French Caribbean and after the
project was announced at Caribbean Fashion Week 2008, it
came to life with the official launch of KOD, the Caribbean
Fashion Boutik, in Guadeloupe on April 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
KOD comes up as a pilot project and a Guadeloupe
contribution to an enhanced structuring of the fashion
The project has emerged from a long term research and
It takes into consideration the needs and priorities of the Caribbean
fashion industry in terms of distribution / promotion / communication,
particularly between the English, French and Spanish Caribbean
territories and it supports a joint promotion on overseas markets.
The term KOD stands for "Code" in Creole and illustrates a conscious
step so that we can appropriate our own Caribbean fashion and beauty
codes in a context of increased market penetration of occidental
franchises and stakeholders that promotes external values
KOD main missions are as follows :
Distribution outlet of selected lines from Caribbean designers
Distribution and promotion of additional services :
press, modelling ...
Projects management between public and private stakeholders
It's designed as a one-stop shop for
the Caribbean fashion sector and an.
operational development platform.
In that regard, a multilingual website
(French, English, and Spanish) fully
dedicated to the Caribbean Fashion and
Culture will be launched by early May.

Jamaica Race ive-or eC"u Heroes of
Sfeed Race Refoirnt
By Dean Corrodus.
I said it was going to be exciting.
I said there would be close racing.
I said drivers would literally be racing down to the wire in the bid for championship honors.
I can now apply for my prophet license. LOL.
What I couldn't predict however was just how high the attrition rate would be in practice in the weeks and
days preceding the event as well as in qualifying and just how much each crew would go through to ensure
that their drivers made it to the track on race day; but I'm getting ahead of myself here, so let me observe
protocol and do the official stuff.
The 2009 season of circuit racing organized by the Jamaica Race Driver's Club (JRDC) at Dover Raceway
came to a thrilling climax on Heroes Day, October 19, when the final race meet of the year was held
there. The club has much to boast about this season, having seen the successful staging of the first three
events, with record attendance, improved facilities and amenities, very close racing, greater exposure in
the media and an increasing number of competitors with better prepared cars and bikes being some of
the more significant achievements this year, which sees the culmination of title sponsor LIME's three year
There is so much to report on I hardly know where to start, so a quick look at the results may be helpful
here. There were a total of 15 races scheduled for the day to be culminated by the Lime "Fallen heroes"
Thundersport race. An on time start after the formalities of introduction, welcome and the playing of the
national anthem after the customary driver lineup saw the fans delve into the action in the bright morning
sun, which was to be followed at lunchtime by persistent overcast conditions, but the rain that threatened
never came and the clouds simpI made things cooler and more eno able for those in attendance.

Of the three motorcycle races run on the day, all were dominated by champion rider Stephan Chin
on his Holey Bulla sponsored Honda CBR 600RR race machine. He made it look easy and established
his conquest of the other competitors early on, posting a fastest time of the day of 1 minute 23.521
seconds. Dennis Chin Quee on a Yamaha 600 R6 secured a 2nd place and two 4th place finishes, with
Halquin Rodney placing 2nd twice and placing 4th in the 1st race. Adrian Blake was the other podium
finisher with three solid 3rd place finishes on a Honda 600 RR.

Good results for Neil Gore, George Bayley and Charles Maxwell.
In the Improved Production Class 27 category, points leader Stephen Bansie in the Scotia Group Subaru
Impreza WRX Sti Spec C romped to victory in Race 1 after qualifying on pole, and was also first across the
line in race 2, but was demoted to 5th place after receiving a penalty for breaking out of the time bracket.
With the results gained, Bansie has won the IP27 championship for the 2nd year running. Neil Gore
in the Team Mobay Racing Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X was 2nd in race 1 and was set to repeat that
placing for race 2, but was gifted the win with Bansie's breakout. 3rd place in race 1 was George Bayley
in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII while in race 2 Charles Maxwell in the CRC Racing Mitsubishi Lancer
Evolution was 2nd and debutant Joel Jackson 3rd in the Jetcon Racing Subaru Impreza. Neil Gore has
placed 2nd in the 2009 championship in this category while last year's winner, Gary Williams, has placed

The Improved Production 33 category saw rising star Peter Jaggon in the Jaggon Gases/Horse P Racing
Honda Civic CRX cross the line first in Race 1, but was demoted to 5th place because of breaking out.
Last year's overall Dover Champion Gary Barrett driving the Jump Fence Racing/Car City Honda Civic was
promoted to 1st place, closely followed by young Kyle Gregg in the BD Gregg & Bros. Honda Civic and Heath
Causwell in the Blue Waters Mitsubishi Mirage 3rd. In race 2 it was Barrett completing the double with Dean
Corrodus in the Kumho Tires Honda Civic Type R in 2nd followed by Chris Wright in Horse P Racing's Purple
Turtle Honda Civic Coupe in 3rd. This after breakout penalties were applied to Gregg, Jaggon, Sebastian Rae
and Andy Bodden while Charles Maxwell was disqualified.
Peter Jaggon set a new front wheel drive track record in qualifying on Sunday of 1 minute 26.932
Raymond Donaldson, Charles Chen and Nigel Edwards.
The Improved Production 37 class was keenly contested between class leader Brian Foster in another
Horse P Racing creation, the Sherwin Williams Honda Civic hatchback and past champion Rohan Clarke in
the Team Xpress Racing Nissan Pulsar, who was eager to retain his throne. They were both upstaged by
Peter Jaggon who also ran in this class and won race 1 followed by Raymond Donaldson in a Mitsubishi
Lancer Evolution and Nigel Edwards in a turbocharged Volkswagen Golf out of the Team Brown's Town
camp. In Race 2 it was Charles Chen's turn to score a maiden victory followed by Edwards in 2nd and
Jaggon in 3rd place.
IP45 competitors in action.
Demotion due to breakout penalties applied were pretty much the order of the day in the Improved
production 45 category, where cars are allowed to race without roll cages if they go no faster than
one minute forty five seconds around the track, The popular category of racing has seen many racers
getting their first taste of competition before plunging full time into racing, offering a great introductory
platform to the sport. Many have argued for and many against the idea, but one thing is for sure, the
record shows that many current champions in other classes got their start right in IP45. Raymond
Donaldson won race 1 followed by Nigel Thomas aka "The Druggist" in a Mitsubishi Lancer affectionately
called "Lancerlution" and Kayde "Preacher's Son" Walker 3rd in a VW Golf from Team Brown's Town
Racing. This after a total of nine competitors broke out of the time bracket. In race 2, nine competitors
again broke out, 8 of them being disqualified, resulting in the three podium places being won by Neil
Blenham in a Peugeot, David Senior in an Acura Integra and Walton Small in a Toyota Corolla taking
home the glory.
The different moods of Kyle Gregg
Brian Foster, Gary Barrett and Dean Corrodus.
The Modified Production categories feature flat out racing as opposed to the Improved Production where
participants keep one eye on the clock to stay within a certain lap time requirement, and many consider
these categories a purer form of racing. In Class 1 (MP1), for cars with an engine displacement not
exceeding 1800cc, Kyle Gregg raced ahead of his rivals to take the win, followed by Brian Foster and Gary
Barrett...all in Honda Civics. In race 2, it was the same story again, the results sheet reading the same,
except that Dean Corrodus claimed 3rd, but also in a Honda Civic. He was one of the drivers who had
arrived late at the track due to staying up all night Sunday rebuilding an engine and having to start from
dead last on the grid for each race...but more on that later, as this seemed to be standard procedure for
several drivers at this event.

In Modified production 2, Teddy Burton in the Xavia Murray prepared turbo-charged Honda Civic put on
a fine performance to win both races, followed by stable mate Alan Chen in a turbo-charged, rear wheel
drive Toyota Corolla, who drifted his car, much to the delight of many spectators, around several corners
of the track. 3rd in both races was Dean Shaw in the Wilshaw Racing Prochallenge truck, possibly his
strongest performance to date.

Douglas Gore won the first Modified Production Class 3 race, sharing the limelight with Chris Campbell
and his father Neil Gore in 2nd and 3rd. In Race 2, it was a come from behind win for David Summerbell,
literally driving on the road all the way from Gore's Team Mobay Racing garage in Montego Bay to cross
the line first after an all nighter to replace a damaged engine block. His benefactor (Doug Gore) was close
on his heels however, but not in his usual Evolution 5, as that car damaged its engine too, but in the
Evolution X, which in turn was to finish the day by the side of the road with suspected engine damage as
well! Third across the line in this class was K. Marston in a Mazda 323.

closely by Doug Gore.
The LIME Thundersport category sees the fastest cars on track at each meet, and Chris Campbell
wrapped up a fine second season of racing by not only winning race 1 but the championship as well in his
blue and white Casa's garage prepared Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV. 2nd place went to a hard charging
David Summerbell in a thrilling "start from the back of the pack drive because I was late and never
qualified and stayed up all night to change my engine so I'm gonna show you how this is really done". 3rd
went to Peter "Bull" Thompson in his turbocharged Mazda RX7. In race 2, "King" David turned the tables
on Campbell and crossed the line first, with Campbell and Thompson following him across the line, albeit
some distance behind.
"Start from the back cf the pack drive

and stayed up all night tc chanOe my

from Stephen Bansie & Peter Rae.
This was such an epistle, I'll leave the 2009 championship positions to the presenter at the prize giving
function, which takes place on Friday, October 23 at the Pegasus Hotel starting at 7 p.m. Be there to
support your favorite drivers and celebrate with the champions.
The meet was sponsored by Lime, Pegasus Hotel, Power 106, KLAS Sports Radio, IRIE FM, National

Skin falls primarily into three
categories: dry, oily and combination.
Dry skin is usually sensitive and tight
especially after washing and is prone
to flaking and cracking, oily skin is
greasy, proned to breakouts and
tends to have visible pores where as
combination skin is a mix of both with
the oily area falling along the T-Zone l s
(across the forehead and down the
bridge of the nose) leaving the cheek
areas dry. A good and consistent
cleansing routine will be helpful to B
all. Begin to think of your cleansing
routine as a meal for your skin.
Appetizer: Start off by choosing a mild
cleanser; those with the least amount
of fragrances are best. Read your labels
to see where in the list of ingredients
'fragrance' falls .The further down the
list it appears the smaller the amount
in the actual product.
Entree: Follow up with a toner to s
balance the skin's ph levels. For
sensitive skin, alcohol free toners are
best (rose water is a good substitute)
oily skins should look for words like
'Alpha and Beta hydroxy acids' in
their toners. These are your friends!
Combination skins would be best to
use a mild toner as well.
Dessert: Lastly, complete routine
with a moisturizer containing SPF
(sun protection factor). Oily skins

Keeping the skin and pores clean with
exfoliation treatments and over the
counter pore refining treatments will
cause the pores to appear smaller.
A good way to figure out how much
SPF your moisturizer should have is to
calculate how long you spend in the
sun on average. For approximately
twenty minutes of sun exposure you
need 1 unit of SPF. So somebody that
gets on average 3 hours of sun contact
would need a SPF of about 12.

Desperate times call for desperate measures...i remember

Ainsley HostileTakeover Dacres, Jamaica
It seems to me that Adams has the capability to "Remove"
many Dons & bad men, the problem is that there was
and will be many civilian casualties in that route. The big
question is..... is that an acceptable "cost" for peace? will
you or your family be lucky? .....hmmmm..... is this what
they call casualties of war?
Advitek Sys, Jamaica
You don't solve criminality in the police force by putting a
criminal as commissioner. NO to Adams!
Alexander William Delapenha, Jamaica
From what I have heard haven't the "families" that got
involved either helping or ins ome way hindering the po
