Passion 4 Life Vitamins… not just selling vitamins – they also change people’s lives! www.passion4lifevitamins.com

Restore the passion to your life with Passion 4 Life liquid vitamins and minerals.

You’ll never be the same!

“Such a wonderful liquid vitamin and mineral product, Passion 4 Life, that provides natural energy and dramatically helps to strengthen your immune system which is critical during the challenging times we are in. (www.passion4lifevitamins.com)

My husband was born in Amsterdam, Holland during World War II. His father was Jewish, and his mother was Catholic. When he was 2 years-old, the Nazis dragged his family away in front of him (he still has nightmares about it to this day at age 79).

He was placed in a state-run orphanage where he suffered abuse of every kind daily as well as malnutrition, surviving on eating flower bulbs. He ran away at age 10 as he could no longer take the abuse, and lived on the streets of Amsterdam.

After he came to America, he was in terrible shape physically, mentally and emotionally, even suicidal. He took handfuls of vitamin pills and never felt any better and then he learned that most hard pills only absorb 10-20% while liquid absorbs up to 98% directly into your bloodstream within 3 minutes of ingestion. At age 65 he “reinvented” himself and created Passion 4 Life to improve his own health. After it worked so well for him, he decided to share it with the world as his legacy that where you start in life doesn’t determine how you end up. Regis Philbin was one of our first customers up until the time of his passing.

Great Cause – Vitamin with a Mission

We are proud to be a “Vitamin with a Mission” as a portion of every bottle sold goes to support our 501 (c)(3) non-profit charity for U.S. children in need, Passion 4 K.I.D.S. (www.passion4kids.org) My husband and I work hands on daily with the children we are honored to serve. Again, this is part of my husband’s legacy based on his own horrific background.

thriller novel, KILL CHAIN author resurrects character after 20 years

“A strong hero hasn’t lost his mojo in this welcome return of a thriller series.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Readers will hope they won’t have to wait another 19 years for Pascual’s next adventure.”

Author Dominic Martell’s thriller novel KILL CHAIN just released in hardcover, paperback to publish on Black Friday. A great holiday gift, especially for all those readers on your list!

The new book features the series character, Pascual Rose, a repentant ex-terrorist now living in Barcelona under a new identity. The character was resurrected after 20 years.

The back story of how KILL CHAIN came to be is fascinating. The first three novels featuring Pascual Rose were written in the 1990’s. Pascual’s storyline was resurrected by now publisher Adam Dunn of Dunn Books. Adam was eager to bring this character into the 21st century and reached out to author Dominic Martell’s agent to see if this was a possibility. The answer: YES! The book not only features a great storyline but also includes Dunn Books’ signature maps and great design. Adam also has a new series on Amazon video BIG DOGS

With the Cold War world of Pascual’s youth gone, replaced by a chaotic international scene with new lines of force and vast amounts of money sloshing around a new technological landscape, the question in planning the book became: would Pascual have managed to stay out of the fray? As Dominic Martell explains, “Kill Chain gives me a rare second chance to revisit a character I had retired prematurely and bring him into the modern world.”

Below are further details about author Dominic Martell’s KILL CHAIN. Also, the FIRST Pascual Rose book in the series LYING CRYING DYING, just republished. That said, you don’t need to have read the original series in order to follow KILL CHAIN.

Praise for Dominic Martell
and the Pascual Series

“A superbly crafted story, with plenty of action, danger, and suspense. … Martell juxtaposes ruthless violence and dark passion against the question of what constitutes morality and ‘goodness.’”

—Booklist starred reviewof Lying Crying Dying

“Dark and bloody as it is, this is spy fiction of the highest order, with atmospheric backgrounds for a plot that ratchets up suspense with each twist and turn and a splendidly complex protagonist, who takes great risks and bluffs his way to the end.”

—Booklist starred review of Republic of Night

“Beautifully plotted and written. … I’ve rarely read a book with a stronger and more persuasive sense of place. … There isn’t a character in the book who doesn’t leap off the page.”

—Patricia Abbott, award-winning author
of I Bring Sorrow, on Gitana

“Looking to be transported to another time and place? Want to stay up deep into the night wondering how the hell Pascual is going to get out of this one? You can’t go wrong with Martell.”

—J. Sydney Jones, author of the critically acclaimed Viennese Mystery series

“Martell brings Pascual into the 21st century—older and wiser yet once again coerced into international skulduggery at the peril of exposure for the sins of his past. This time, he’s party to a money-laundering scheme, jet setting from one tax haven to another, at every turn trying to stay one step ahead of his handlers, sensing they will soon have little need of him and his unique ‘qualifications’ for the job—and that what he knows will become a fatal liability.”

—BookTrib review of Kill Chain

KILL CHAIN

A NOVEL

By Dominic Martell

TWENTY YEARS OFF THE GRID AND HE THOUGHT HE WAS SAFE

Pascual Rose is back—and this time the lives of his wife and son hang in the balance.

Years ago, Rose put his life as a terrorist behind him. He sold out his colleagues for a new identity and low profile in Barcelona. All was quiet until he received a midnight text: Come join us on the terrace.

The stakes are high: if he fails, it will cost him his family; if he succeeds, one million euros will buy a lot more than translation piecework will. But the money-laundering scheme involves a nexus of diverted revenues, shell companies and cryptocurrencies, peopled by shadowy benefactors, Russian mobsters, German intelligence agents, and a mysterious woman with a chilling warning: Get out before it’s too late.

Rose races against time, navigating twists and turns and mortal danger knowing no one can be trusted and nothing is happenstance. Can he uncover who is behind the operation that has the potential to destroy entire governments and global financial markets before he loses everything?

DOMINIC MARTELL, who has worked as a teacher and translator, was born in the United States and has lived and traveled extensively in Latin America, Europe and the Middle East. His first three novels featuring repentant ex-terrorist Pascual Rose appeared in the 1990s, chronicling Pascual’s quest for atonement in the chaotic post-Cold War years. A quarter of a century later, in the post-9/11 world, Martell decided to bring Rose out of retirement. Kill Chain is the first 21st-century misadventure of Pascual Rose.

LYING CRYING DYING

By Dominic Martell

Before Pascual Rose was resurrected after almost twenty years, in this year’s Fall anticipated thriller KILL CHAIN (Dunn Books; October 6, 2020), Pascual was a marked man lying low. In the 1980s, he was a courier for a network of radical groups that spread terror across Europe in the name of separatism and liberation. That is, until he defected to the Mossad and CIA, selling out his former comrades save one—his old flame, the beautiful Katixa.

Then he vanished along with his new identity into the streets of Barcelona, his childhood home. Sleeping in flophouses and living hand to mouth, Pascual spends his days trying to atone for his sins among the city’s teeming alleys and taverns. He keeps a low profile, hiding from old associates looking to exact revenge.

But just when he thinks he’s finally shed his past, Katixa bursts back into his life with a suitcase full of cash hijacked from an ETA kidnapping, looking for a one-way ticket out of Spain—with Pascual. His better judgment doesn’t stand a chance. Pascual goes on the run with Katixa. Nothing is what it seems, and betrayals lurk at every turn. When Pascual realizes that everyone is lying to him, the crying and the dying cannot be far behind.

DOMINIC MARTELL has lived and traveled extensively in Latin America, Europe and the Middle East as a teacher and translator. Lying Crying Dying is the first of three novels originally published in the 1990s that chronicles ex-terrorist Pascual Rose’s quest for atonement in the chaotic post-Cold War years. A quarter of a century later, in the post-9/11 world, Martell brought Rose out of retirement. His latest novel, Kill Chain, is the first 21st-century misadventure of Pascual Rose.

Winter is coming… and it looks like being the winter of our collective discontent.

The enforced working from home, worries about money and health, lack of social connection that come with lockdown have eroded our mental health and will continue to do so. So what can we do to help ourselves? What can bolster our mental resources and strengthen our resilience, to help us get through the next few months with our minds intact?

At Mindshine we believe that the answer is mental fitness. And that’s why we created the world’s first mental fitness training app. A collection of over a year’s worth of exercises from the worlds of positive psychology, leadership coaching and mindfulness to help you work on and feel better about all areas of your life. Meditation is great (we do that too), but there’s so much more to getting the most out of your life.

It’s our mission to create a world where training the mind is as ACCESSIBLE, DESIRABLE & SIMPLE as training the body.

It’s much more than meditation

It’s your life, but better.

Here’s a little film explaining Mindshine in 100 seconds:

Recipe : Smoky Yellowtail Braai

Ingredients

750g Greenfish Yellowtail Fillet, skin on (plus minus 250g per person)
A few knobs of Butter
2-3 teaspoons of crushed Garlic
Salt & Pepper
Instructions

Place the fillet on the braai grid skin side down and season with salt and pepper. Spread a few teaspoons of crushed garlic over the fillet and place a couple of knobs of butter on top.
Place the grid high above the coals on a medium heat and braai skin side down. Cooking on a medium heat high above the coals will prevent the skin from burning. You will see the meat change from translucent pink to white. Cook until you can see this colour change has just gone past half way (this process will take approximately 15 -18 minutes).
Flip the grid over so that the flesh side is now above the coals and cook for approximately 3-5 minutes until almost done. When the fillet looks 95% cooked remove from the heat as it will continue to cook once taken off the coals.
Enjoy with friends!

NEW
THE CULTURED COLLECTIVE KIMCHI
LIVE | FERMENTED | RAW

www.theculturedcollective.co.uk

The Cultured Collective kimchi range is expertly crafted in the Cotswolds using the highest quality, natural ingredients in an environment powered by sustainable energy and presented in easily recyclable materials. Offering unbeatable quality and great taste, it’s the most awarded kimchi range in the UK!

LIVING WELL BEGINS WITH EATING WELL
A traditional mix of fresh chinese leaf cabbage, mooli radish, carrot and spring onion form the basis of Classic Kimchi. The vegetable medley is fermented for up to a week in an aromatic spice blend until the perfect balance of spicy-sour has been reached. Three further kimchis have their own individual flavour and characteristics.

IT’S ALIVE!
Unpasteurised and with no artificial preservatives, each jar is loaded with healthy, live, good bacteria – or probiotics. Eating unpasteurised fermented foods such as kimchi is a natural way of getting probiotics into your diet.

Studies have shown that gut flora (the bacteria that live in the digestive system) have a huge impact on the health of our immune system (over 70% of which resides in the gut).

Another bit of good news; over 90% of serotonin – the so-called ‘happy hormone’– is synthesised in the gut and some recent studies have shown that probiotics may have a positive effect on conditions such as depression and anxiety.

THE CULTURED COLLECTION KIMCHI RANGE
Classic Kimchi – RRP £5.45 for 250g – GLUTEN FREE
The best-selling traditional Classic Kimchi remains true to Korea’s national dish. Piquant and spicy with moreish umami notes and a satisfying crunch

Turmeric & Ginger Kimchi – RRP £5.45 for 250g – GLUTEN FREE | VEGETARIAN | VEGAN
Flush with the vibrant golden glow of turmeric and ginger along with a pinch of fiery cayenne and savoury sea greens, this will get your senses singing. Circulation-supporting ginger and cayenne, together with turmeric (a natural anti-inflammatory) and wakame (a sea vegetable rich in iodine) are added for unique flavour notes and more wellness benefits.

Zesty White Kimchi – RRP £5.45 for 250g – GLUTEN FREE | VEGETARIAN | VEGAN
White kimchi is a traditional variety of Korean kimchi made without chilli flakes. Non-spicy and fragrant with warming ginger and subtle savoury notes.

Vegan Classic Kimchi – RRP £5.79 for 250g – GLUTEN FREE | VEGETARIAN | VEGAN
The Classic Kimchi is reimagined in this plant-based version: piquant with subtle savoury notes and a satisfying crunch.

LIVE, GUT-LOVING ACCOMPANIMENTS FOR EVERY OCCASION
Kimchi is traditionally eaten as a condiment or used an ingredient in cooking, however it’s equally enjoyable forked straight from the jar! Add to sandwiches, salads and wraps or spice up stir-fries, rice and noodle dishes – kimchi is not impeded by country specific cuisines!
“Gut health is a very simple practice that may help support your immune system. Eating live foods such as kimchi which is packed with good bacteria helps to create a healthy microbiome. The Cultured Collective kimchis add tang to meals AND come loaded with healthy live bacteria”

Jeannette Hyde
Nutritional Therapist & author of The Gut Makeover

The Cultured Collective Kimchi range is available from fine food delis, Ocado, Planet Organic and Whole Foods Market.

Social Enterprise ‘The One Movement’ Launches Crowdfund & Exceeds $25K Target In 24 Hours

Founded by Hollywood-based actor Petrice Jones, The One Movement is on a mission to educate, empower and support people and projects on the frontline of the fight to protect our planet. The goal being to make a positive environmental impact with beautiful and eco-friendly products connected with powerful sustainability projects.

Launched via Indiegogo on 16th October 2020, The One Movement crowdfunding campaign surpassed its target of $25,000 USD within just 24 hours. And, as part of the campaign (which will run until end of November 2020), backers can pre-order the first The One Movement product – the eco-friendly stainless steel One Bottle.

The One Movement has partnered with Plastics For Change (India), to fund the ‘Namma Mane’ project (meaning ‘Our Home’), which works with local waste collectors to collect plastic from ocean-bound waterways to be recycled into construction material used to build homes. Purchasing just one of these reusable water bottles removes the equivalent of 2000 single-use plastic bottles from ocean-bound waterways in India. Where a single One Bottle removes 20kg of plastic, 1000 of the One Bottle can build an entire home – with the first already having completed construction.

The One Movement is committed to effecting genuine long-lasting change. Starting by being a vehicle to facilitate a reduction in the consumption of single-use plastics, while educating on the importance of a low impact lifestyle. With future ambitions including expanding its product range to anything that is usually made of single-use plastics, as well as partnering with more charities to maximise and diversify the movement’s positive impact as much as possible.

The One Bottle is available for pre-order via the Indiegogo page HERE, with shipping from March 2021 onwards.

About The Founders:

Petrice first came to his environmental vocation when confronted with the vast amount of wastage on film sets and shoots, where up to 100,000 plastic bottles are said to be used for just a few hundred people. Realising there was a much bigger problem to be tackled, and with a much larger opportunity for global impact, Petrice and serial entrepreneur (and friend) Jade Sehbat came up with the idea of The One Movement.

The One Movement has already grown into a global network of experienced entrepreneurs, product specialists and environmental activists who have seen the damage done to the planet and its people, and want to make a difference. Combined, they have decades of real-world experience bringing purpose-led brands and award-winning products to the world

This Christmas why not give the gift of great hair with REVLON’s new One-Step Dryer & Volumiser products? Now with a bold new look, sizes and styles, they’re the perfect present for any beauty lover this festive season.

One-Step Dryer & Volumiser for Mid-Short Hair

After gaining fans across the world, the two-in-one styling tool is back, now aimed at women with mid to short hair. The tool combines the power of a dryer and volume of a styler to deliver effortlessly beautiful, full-bodied and frizz-free hair with 22% more shine* and in up to half the time**.

Now 30% smaller than the original One-Step volumiser, you can get closer to the root, giving that fierce volume and curled ends for whatever Christmas party look you’re going for!

One-Step Dryer & Volumiser Titanium Special Edition

After something a little extra special this Christmas? Then the Titanium Dryer & Volumiser with a striking, cherry colour and a titanium coating is the one for you. Also new to the REVLON One-Step collection, the premium, Titanium, special edition guarantees long-lasting, shiny locks, giving you that ‘stepped out of the salon’ glow in up to half the time**.

Not only will this product get you living boldly this Christmas, but it will also look after those beautiful ends with a faster drying and styling time, reducing heat exposure and giving a conditioned, smooth and shiny finish.

The comfortable ball tips will also allow the tool to softly detangle strands of hair as you brush, while giving improved body with the curved edge of the product.

Introducing the !Hello Day! Range

What better gift this Christmas than being able to give the gift of beautifully styled hair for every day of the week. Whether you’ve got freshly washed hair or are more towards the end of your hair wash cycle, stand-out styles can easily be achieved with the help of the newly launch Toni&Guy !Hello Day! Range.

If you are more of a sleek and straight look, prefer a casual wavy tousled style, or like to add a bit of volume to your roots, there is a tool for everyone, every style allowing you to get creative with your hair at home.

The !Hello Day! range offers three different stylers, all with the ability to select the right heat setting based on when you last washed your hair, helping to keep your luscious locks looking fresh and, most importantly, without causing any additional and unnecessary heat exposure. Based on a three-day hair wash cycle, the new stylers feature three different heat settings:

1. WASH (210°C): This is the highest temperature setting for when your freshly washed hair is soft and silky so may struggle to hold a style

2. SECOND (180°C): A mid-temperature setting for the day after you wash your hair, when it has more control and hold

3. THIRD (150°C): For the day before you wash your hair, this low temperature setting will help your hair to have more texture and volume

MONEY-CONSCIOUS MILLENNIALS TURN UP THE HEAT IN BED

YOUNG BRITS MAKE SWITCH TO ELECTRIC BLANKETS THAT CAN HEAT A BEDROOM FOR JUST 1P PER NIGHT

ELECTRIC BLANKETS SALES INCREASED BY 400 PER CENT THIS WEEK ALONE

A staple of the 1970s bed set-up, the electric blanket, is making a 2020 comeback thanks to savvy students and money conscious millennials.

While the electric blanket’s popularity has waned since its peak popularity in the latter half of the 20th century, research by the experts at Silentnight has found that this sleep time saviour is surging in popularity amongst those aged 18-34.

Brits aged 25-34 are the most likely to own an electric blanket; while 48 per cent of the nation’s electric blankets are owned by those aged 18-34.

Silentnight attributes this increase in younger people opting for electric options to the blankets’ ability to create a cosy wintertime bedroom for a low cost – meaning students and young families on tight budgets can heat their home during the coldest part of the year without breaking the bank.

An electric blanket can heat a bedroom for less than one pence per night; an especially welcome cost saving following the news* that home working and lockdown guidelines could see household energy bills rise by up to 18 per cent this winter, totalling £1.9 billion in additional bills nationwide.

Across the board, Brits are opting for this cosy, cost saving – sales are up 400 per cent this week alone according to Silentnight’s data.

Hayley Chaytor, spokesperson for Silentnight, said: “While you might typically expect electric blankets to be more popular with the elderly or those who are nostalgic for the 70s and 80s; in fact, they’re becoming something of a heating hack for young Brits who love the cosy atmosphere they create and the bill busting running costs they offer in comparison to traditional central heating or plug in heaters.”

Silentnight has a wide range of electric blankets to suit all beds and budgets.

It’s Comfort Control Electric Blanket costs from just £22.99 and has three heat settings so sleepers can select their ideal temperature. The blanket is rigorously tested so it’s safe for all night use, can be machine washed and comes with a three-year warranty.

The Silentnight Comfort Control Electric Blanket can be purchased from Amazon, Argos, Very and Sleepy People.

At-home convenience. Barbershop-fresh results.

How it works:

Aim it

Shave the back of the neck in less then 60 seconds. Look in the mirror as you shave normally. Center the neck razor along your hairline on the back of the neck

Shave it

Holding each grip, easily glide down to shave the back of your neck. Realign along the hairline and repeat on your right and left side of the neck. The aloe vera strips mounted in the Swedish-steel blades sooth skin, giving it the space it needs to breathe. Rinse the razors clean as needed

Here’s the perfect gift idea for anyone who
has spent more time than usual at home this year

An affordable, custom painting from PostandPaint.com will bring them special joy

2020 has been a banner year for home improvement projects, as we stay home and spend more time staring at our tired spaces. Having something new to enjoy lifts our spirits. This Christmas, you can feel the joy of giving the most treasured gift ever, by commissioning an affordable custom painting for a loved one’s home through PostandPaint.com.

Nearly everyone has that one photo that causes them to feel a surge of love, happiness and peace each time they look at it. How special would it be for them to receive a painting based on that photo that they could look at every day! It wouldn’t have to be a big painting. Just something small that shows you care enough to have this created specifically for them.

Even better, that same painting will help transform lives both here in the U.S. and in the slums of India.

A simple process with a big potential impact

The PostandPaint.com idea is simple:

Post a photo of something that is special to your loved one. You can designate the size, shape and preferred medium of the finished artwork, as well as their preferred price range. There is a $10 per photo donation to post a photo. “One hundred percent of these donations are given to a non profit organization. Currently it is Hands of Freedom, a group saving impoverished women and children in India,” says PostanadPaint.com co-creator Robin Kocina. “This organization helps save children from child sex trafficking and gives them an education. It teaches mothers skills to earn a living. It saves lives.”

Artists create a painting based on the photo. “Artists peruse the uploaded photos and paint the ones that most interest them. They upload a photo of the finished art and set the price.”

You can buy the painting. “If you like how it turned out, and you are good with the price, you can have a custom piece of artwork to give to a loved one that means something personal to them. If you decide not to buy the finished artwork, the artist is free to sell it to another customer.”

This is truly fine art, not just transferring a photo to a new medium

PostandPaint.com is customized fine art, not just computer design and alterations. This is an opportunity for people to own artwork that might otherwise have been out of reach to them, such as having a favorite outdoor photo painted by wildlife and nature painter Keith Grove. A veteran of several one-man shows as well as numerous juried shows, Grove has sold prints of his work nationally.

The cancellation of art fairs and other venues has made it tough for artists to earn a living. “In these hard times, having the opportunity to do some artwork means a lot to me. My final work is all traditional paint and brushes,” Grove confirms. He acknowledges that the computer revolution has made it tough for traditional artists to survive in the industry, and is grateful to PostandPaint.com for providing a venue for traditional artwork.

“This website is the first time a traditionalist like myself had a venue for my work again. I definitely encourage other artists to support PostandPaint. I just hope there are many others who still know how to step back from their computers and use real paint as well.”

In addition, PostandPaint is changing lives half the world away. Says Hands of Freedom deployed pastor Jon, “We are very excited about the Post and Paint partnership as this will enable us at Hands of Freedom to expand our outreach to impoverished families in India and help lead them towards a new God-given destiny out of poverty.”

Support for small businesses is enjoying a resurgence

These days, it’s easy to get lost in the digital world. But more people also value the contributions that small businesses make to our economy and way of life. Kocina is determined to help that sector survive. “Our appreciation of the time and creative talent it takes to produce a beautiful piece of art is something we don’t want to lose,” she says.

Favorite photos and cherished memories deserve to be preserved as fine art. Christmas is the perfect time to commission a painting on PostandPaint.com. “You’ll not only bring joy to someone you love this holiday season, you’ll also be helping the artist to make a living,” concludes Kocina.

Description: As an out-of-the-box gift idea for athletes looking to stay fit when away from a brick-and-mortar gym (e.g. home for the holidays), LIFT Society’s virtual fitness experience presents the nation’s first luxury virtual fitness membership exclusively focused on aesthetic fitness, largely inspired by the recent social phenomena (read: fitness designed to ensure you’re looking your best on Insta and beyond) — all at the touch of a button from wherever you are (between zoom calls, with family or on the go!). Endeavoring to bring LIFT Society’s brick-and-mortar gym concept to homes without sacrificing the coveted results and attentive personal-trainer care, each virtual class is designed to target and sculpt specific muscle groups across both upper and lower body for the ultimate in bodybuilding, strength and aesthetics. While offering members at-home live training with personalization, form correction and the ability to build strength from anywhere in the world, LIFT Society Virtual focuses on building glutes, toning members’ arms and abs, and lowering body fat percentage all with merely a set of dumbbells. Featuring professional trainers at the helm of each class, LIFT Society Virtual is moderately priced in an à-la-carte fashion for ease and accessibility. For those looking to get or stay fit from home, one-time classes are available for $12 per session in a pay-as-you-lift format, or a monthly membership with unlimited access to classes is available for $99/month.
