    When will Harlequin's holiday homes be built

    SOME investors want want refunds from a south Essex business which has taken at least 180million in deposits to build international holiday resorts, after years of delays to the ambitiousHarlequin Property, of cartier wedding rings for men fake Honywood Road, Basildon, says its clients have paid for about 6,000 properties to be built across six Caribbean resorts, and one in

    Brazil, since it started selling about six years ago.

    According to its website, it has now only opened 192 villas, or rooms, at its partially built flagship resort Buccament Bay, in St Vincent, since August 2010, while 100 others are near completion

    with 700 odd still to be built.

    However, some investors, who were told their properties would be built within three to four years, have asked for the return of their 30 per cent deposits.

    A woman from London, who would not be named, said she remortgaged her house to invest 150,000 towards a 495,000 villa at Buccament Bay in 2007.

    She said she was told it would be built diamond cartier imitation ring by December 2008 fake cartier yellow gold love ring however there is still no guaranteed date.

    She said: "I am at the point where I want a refund, but it is not forthcoming. They have said they will pay it back over 18 months.

    A director of a major accountancy firm, who would not be named, said: "I am informally advising a number of investors about getting their deposits back."

    Some people who paid deposits for one of around 1,000 homes planned at Merricks Resort in Barbados originally due to be completed by the end of 2008, have seen the completion date slip by more than

    three years with none of the predicted returns.

    One man, who would not cartier ring white gold copy be named, said: "After a lot of hassle I did eventually get my deposit back, paid over 12 months."

    Some investors have ploughed personal pension plans into the properties. Howard Winter invested his pension in Buccament Bay.

    He said: "It is taking longer than we hoped, but I am happy. It is a pension, so I am in it for the long term.

    "It is now involved with Britain's Got Talent, so that will raise the profile."

    Harlequin accepts there have been delays in building its holiday resorts, but pledged it was on course for phased openings from 2013.

    The firm says less than one per cent (fewer than 60) of its investors had asked for deposits back.

    A spokeswoman said: "Our investors are kept regularly informed on how each resort is progressing. The overwhelming majority appreciates we are now progressing very well.

    "All of Harlequin's current projects are on course for phased openings from 2013 and we hold regular face to face meetings for investors, as well as providing updates online.

    "We have the capacity to deliver all these projects and are committed to meeting our targets."

    Harlequin said its Buccament Bay resort was valued last year at US$240million (around 150million based on current exchange rates) and the value was rising as more properties and facilities wereThe business is also currently renovating two smaller Caribbean hotels, into luxury Harlequin boutiques, which it says will lead to quicker returns for investors.

    On Sunday, it opened one of them, Blu Hotel, St Lucia, before a planned major conversion next year while planning permission is finalised.

    The spokeswoman said this, and the opening of phase one of Buccament Bay, showed it was making good progress. She added: "Harlequin accepts, however, that there have been some delays."

    The firm said the delays at Buccament Bay were primarily due to problems caused by the developer of phase one of the resort, the ICE Group run by Padraig O'Halloran, not finishing all the work

    Mardi Gras mayhem

    The 12th annual Mardi Gras party hosted by the Hymels was Saturday night and they went all out. The windows were boarded up with messages, and scattered about in the front yard were old carpet, a water heater, boxes, and a broken chair. A kayak was in the bushes and a motor home with a FEMA sign was parked in the driveway. flag was near the entrance that was bedecked with a "c'est levee" banner. It looked such a mess that a new neighbor, unaware of the party, filed a complaint with the police, who showed up at the door the day before.

    But all the neighbors were there along with friends and business associates. Dr. Hymel said seafood from his hometown is flown in every year, but his usual supplier was not functioning yet because of last year's hurricanes. Luckily, another supplier came through. There were oodles of crab all spread on newsprint, but fewer crawfish tails were on hand since the treats' price rose from about 39 cents a pound to more than $4 a pound. In additon to the seafood, there were loads of Cajun treats including Jambayla and dirty rice.

    Dr. Hymel, who is a lieutenant colonel in the 244th Aviation Battalion, said his family members in New Orleans are doing fine, though one of his sister's homes in Shell Beach is now a slab of concrete; he has the before and after photos to prove it. When the storms hit, the family evacuated parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and cousins and scattered all over from Dallas to Fort Worth to Shreveport, La.

    Dr. Hymel served seven months in Balad, north of Baghdad, as a flight surgeon. He said while he was there, his knock off cartier double ring necklace wife was home with their five children ages 5 15, so, he joked, "I got off easy."She had to pay all the bills too on a significantly lower income than they were accustomed to. Seeing the aftermath of the hurricanes: "It reminded me of Iraq; the total devestation" said Dr. Hymel, who continued, "Everyone [in New Orleans] is saying don't forget us."

    While the party was for fun, Dr. Hymel got serious for a few minutes after the announcement of the queen and the costume winners. He encouraged everyone to make a donation of their choice to the hurricane victims, because it could be 10 years before their lives are back in order.

    Back at the bash, costumed partygoers were in full gear. Howard and Kim DuCharme, who loaned their trailer marked with a FEMA sign for the yard, were among the several dressed as FEMA workers. New Toledoans from Boston are cartier love necklace pink gold imitation Rob and Paula Enos: She was crowned queen for her "hurricane aftermath' costume. Cathy Stiles, wrapped in several yards of tulle fabric, scary eye makeup, and holding a hurricane glass, was there with hubby, Dallas, and won best costume as Cathrina. Second prize was a tie: Diann and Brian Ferguson as NBC weathermen and Vicki and Tim Flenniken as weathermen from Fox News. Rich Worthington came as Osama bin Laden, while his wife, Cynthia, dressed as an alligator hunter. Brenda and Dave Johnson came as the title character from I Dream of Jeannie and a sultan.

    THE FIFTH annual Mardi Gras party presented by Nationwide Insurance and Westfield Insurance to benefit the Fair Housing Center was Thursday at Gumbo's Bayou Grille. Magician Martin Jarret entertained guests as did astrologer Janet Amid, who looked into guests' future. And there was plenty of shopping to do at the live and silent auctions. Mark Lacey bought a lease on a Ford Mustang from Mathews Ford. Fred Fogelman bought a dinner for four at Georgio's. Leanne Briggs bought a reading by Ms. Amid. Ray Henderson bought a ruby and diamond bracelet: I'm sure Ethal was delighted. A quick program included thanks to sponsors and guests, and a presentation on the evening's honorees, the late Rosa Parks and Coretta Scott King.

    Once Kelley Berry started to strut, nearly everyone jived to the tunes of the KGB band, including Marianne Ballas, Lynn and Karen Fruth, Shakil Khan and Sue Stoner, and Sandra Humphrey of Detroit, looking hot in a black and silver skirt and stilettos. (However, at the end of the evening she commented: "These shoes aren't made for walking.")

    Among the more than 330 guests were Debbie Barnette, Teresa Smith, Scott and Barbara Jameson, Andrew Rivers, Harold and Lonnie Rosenberg, Theresa Mah, Win Stone, Monica Kyles and Ahasia Love, Betty Valentine, Todd Roth, Stan Kolbuck, Laura Anaple, and board president and event chairman Pamela Pullella.

    The event, which has raised over $66,000 in the past, netted between $18,000 and $20,000 this year. All proceeds are used to fight housing discrimination.

    NOT Mardi Gras, but still festive was the Toledo Club's 16th Annual Summer Fling party. Members and guests nixed the winter blues and cabin fever by donning tropical shirts and shorts, sunglasses, and flip flops. A picnic style summer buffet sated appetites and margaritas and beer quenched the thirst of revelers who partied till the late hour amid tiki huts, beach toys, and lawn chairs.

    A speakeasy from the roaring 1920s was on the menu for fun Saturday night at the Way Public Library in Perrysburg. It was the Felons, Flappers, and Foul Play interactive murder mystery presented by Physical Therapy Consultants and produced by the library foundation.

    A Model T was parked by the door. Once inside, guests stepped back in time. After the first scene set the stage, clue stations helped sleuths find out who done it, that is, who murdered infamous Chicago gangster and club owner Alshifton "Shifty" S. Capades.

    Now some folks didn't really care who put Shifty six feet under: They indulged in refreshments of the spirited kind a rumor was circulating about a gin mill, but because it was Prohibition, it was kept under wraps as they gossiped and feasted on fabulous foods while seated at bistro tables and booths.

    Traipsing around was Louie Lieguini aka Chuck Kiskaddon in a Zoot suit with his main squeeze, Trixiee aka Wendie Kiskaddon in a fringy flapper dress. He was carrying a violin case, but rumors were a machine gun was inside, but no one asked. Bill Cosgrove was eyeing the desserts, or maybe he was paying attention to the flirty cigarette gal who was selling bubble gum cigars. The rest of the gang was mighty serious about the investigation.

    Acting as poker players were Jack Sculfort and Pat Critch. Mini Moll aka Lisa Sundermeier, Colt Darringer aka Brendt Sundermeier, Ima Rockefeller aka Ann Matney, and bartender Jack Daniels aka Bill Buzzell were among cartier necklace box replica the strolling actors.

    The main cast included Molly Mack as Dottie Dimples, Cindy Taylor as Jazzie Ann Swanky, Jeff Turner as Toni Rigitoni, Kim Henderson as Cass Piajamas, Myra McClure as Sissy X. Capades, Bill Irwin as Numbers Nickowski, and Mike Olmstead as Sen. Vito D. Beale.

    The dirty rotten scoundrel wasn't Mrs. Peacock in the library, but Harry Lumbar aka Mark Perry, the conductor with a poisoned clarinet. The five gumshoes who solved it were Don Holtz, Bob Young, Jennifer Sampson, John Foster, and John Seiverth.

    The mystery solved, the crowd danced to The Wrecking Crew till midnight. Several stopped for a nightcap at Stella's or the Rose and Thistle.

    Among the sold out crowd of 440 were Barbara and Bob Coon, Stacey and Dale McClary, Bob and Jackie Venzel, Jeff and Debbie Normand, Scott and Francis Parry, Sandra Gibson, Margot and Jim Quick, Linda Wilson, Bill and Claudia Hummer, Mayor Nelson Evans and wife, Felicia, and visiting from the Columbus area, former Perrysburgers Mike and Donna Glanville.

    The many volunteers who assisted event chairman Lisa Richard included Luella Smith, Debby Peters, Joan Foster, Lea Skotynsky, Janel Molyneux, Liz White, Rozanne Stepnick, and Kim Nickerson.

    About $32,000 is the estimated net, and the funds will go to the library foundation's endowment fund.

    The 25th Annual Maumee Rotary Service Foundation Charity Auction was Saturday night at Gladieux Meadows in honor of the late Chuck Oswald, who started the event. Guests shopped the silent auction as they sipped and nibbled.

    Emcee Walt Churchill brought the group to order. A tasty dinner sated appetites, then, it was barker time! Auctioneer John Whalen kicked off the oral auction with a bid to donate just to donate, and the Howard and Eleanor Drager Foundation matched the proceeds 2 to 1. Art, entertainment packages, jewelry, and more, including bird photographs snapped and donated by founding member Tom Anderson followed. Foundation board chairman Mike Czerniak donated a Waterford Crystal bowl and a Cartier glass pitcher. The grand finale was a Dominic Labino piece fake cartier love pendant necklace donated by Mr. Whalen.

    Seen were club president Joe Ludwig, Karen and Greg Elder, Bob Navarro, Bill and Annie Schmidt, Dick and Melissa Marcus, Karen Merrels, Brad and Julie Rubini, and event chairman Bob Adams, with wife, Karen. Julie Oswald said the estimated net of about $100,000 supports the foundation's projects. Volunteers included high school and college level Rotarians.

    With lots of applause and hoots and bravos, Judy and Liza performed Together Again! at the Franciscan Center Saturday night.

    "The audience of about 300 marveled at Julie Sheppard and Suzanne Goulet's portrayal of the famous duo" said chairman Tami Williams, chairman of the event to benefit David's House of Compassion for individuals with HIV and AIDS and their families.

    Judy aka Julie Sheppard was especially passionate about the performance because she has lost five accompanists to AIDS. She sang a real tear jerker, "The Day After Tomorrow" dedicated to victims of AIDS. Liza, aka Suzanne Goulet, talked about the mission of David's House, which provides referral services for medical coverage, housing, counseling, education on AIDS and HIV, support groups, and more.

    The dynamic duo is so supportive of the cause they promoted the event with an impromptu sneak peek at local establishments in Toledo including Rosie's Italian Grille. Phil Barone, owner, said it was not as busy as usual since there were several events on Thursday, but those who were there were wowed by the performance.

    optical designer

    British eyewear designer Tom Davies is nominated by Luxury deputy editor Bethan Ryderfor his pioneering bespoke optical designs

    Tom Davies loves designing spectacles so much he wears them himself, despite having perfect eyesight. After graduating in art and design, he followed friends to Hong Kong, landing a job as chief designer for an eyewear startup where, for the next three years, he designed frames for international brands. Returning to London in 2000, he launched his own bespoke service, Tom Davies, in 2002. In the 15 years since, he's fitted glasses for luminaries including Kevin Spacey, the late Carrie Fisher and Heston Blumenthal, Henry Cavill (as Clark Kent) and, most recently, Brad Pitt in Allied.

    We say: A self confessed "design machine",Davies has a geek's ability to wax lyrical about fine materials buffalo horn, lightweight pure titanium, even 18 carat gold replica cartier love necklace rose gold and the combination of cutting edge technology and handcraft required to create the glasses in his Hong Kong factory.

    Three hour bespoke consultations at his London opticians start with aneye test so good it could be NASA approved, with Zeiss fake cartier necklace gold equipment measuring vision and performing scans that can detect both minor and serious problems. "High street opticians might catch up in 2170," he jokes. Then Davies (whose consultations start at 20,000 for the Wardrobe Service of five to six pairs) or one of his knock off cartier mens gold chain team will spend two hours forensically studying eyelash length, ear position, eye width and nose size his USP is the "nose bar"consisting of 75 sizes that has taken 14 years to develop all with the aim of ensuring a perfect fit.

    He says:"Most of the time glasses don't suit people. You're lucky if you even find two pairs in an opticians that look good. When I create a bespoke pair for someone I'm bringing symmetry to the face, because symmetry is beauty. I design them like an accessory, you've got to want to wear them. They're the most important thing on your face. People should ideally have several pairs."

    Look out for: Major expansion. Davies followed his 2014 Sloane Square flagship with two stores in 2016, and is opening a further four bespoke opticians in London this year. He's also investing in UK manufacturing, launching a workshop in Brentford in fake cartier necklace box 2017. Davies has already taken care of Hollywood royalty, but now he's got his sightsset on reframing Prince William: "He's the future King, he needs decent glasses."

    Life of Couple Was Both Sophisticated and Vacuous

    The Duchess of Windsor died only two years ago, widowed and all but senile in the Paris mansion where she had lived with a man who was once a king.

    Even in 1986, she seemed already a creature of another age, a woman long consigned to history, where she had blazed for a few months as Mrs. Simpson, the notorious American divorcee for whom King Edward VIII walked away from a throne and an empire.

    In the knock off love necklace cartier price 35 years thereafter, replica diamond necklace cartier the news the couple made was on the social pages, not the front pages. Their plunge into the elegancies of "the minor arts of exquisite living, dressing, cooking and entertaining" was done to cartier gold necklace chain copy perfection.

    But perfection itself can be a form of hubris. And "Windsor Style," by Suzy Menkes, fashion editor of the Independent of London, delivers both the sophisticated taste and the hollow vanity of the Windsors' life style.

    In the cafe society that presaged the Jet Set, the ex king and his lady reigned supreme. Wallis on the best dressed list for 40 years exalted severe, soignee dressing in an age of furbelows, and was confident enough of her taste to demand changes on her gowns from the House of Dior.

    The cut of a skirt could obsess her: "If I make the skirt any smaller, you won't be able to sit down," Mainbocher told her during a fitting. "Then I won't sit down in it," she said. "She was a computer of elegance," said Edouard, one of her hairdressers.

    As a poor but genteel Southern girl, she strove to be different because she could not afford to compete. And as a duchess, she did the same thing but at last she could afford it: a white organza couture ball gown was painted with a huge red lobster. A trompe l'oeil zipper shaped necklace was made of platinum and diamonds.

    While Wallis made simplicity chic, the boyish duke restored brighter plumage to the male. Rebelling against a stickler of a father who yelled at his son and heir for wearing cuffed pants, the duke, as Prince of Wales, popularized Fair Isle sweaters, bright sport clothes, soft hats, Windsor knots, argyle socks.

    He tended to eccentricity in his old age, winning praise for an ensemble of plaid shorts, gingham shirt and paisley cravat that no mere mortal would have dared.

    But it was in Wallis' jewels, "objects of desire," Menkes calls them, that the Windsor style is most enduring. It was a 40 year Niagara of gems, majestic and whimsical by turns, a voluptuous contrast to her rigid clothes so many jewels from the king that one Englishwoman of rank mistook her gobs of rubies for costume jewelry.

    Their auction in 1987, to clients such as Elizabeth Taylor, dispersed one of the richest and certainly the most flamboyant jewel collections outside of royal palaces.

    They were the crown jewels Edward could not give her as king. Three fabled pieces alone the flamingo shaped brooch in rubies, emeralds and sapphires; the Cartier panther bracelet, the bib of amethysts and turquoises, and a gold compact paved with precious stones brought nearly $3 million.

    What kind of lives produced this treasure? One of the duchess's maxims, worked into a throw pillow, was: "You can never be too rich or too thin." Their lives were, in a sense, both almost overwhelmingly opulent and too thin on substance.

    No charity, no sport, no occupation engrossed the abdicated Windsors, and that left only themselves and a self absorption that created a flawlessly machined existence. Of the flowers sent after Wallis' death, noted the Duchess of Marlborough, most copy cartier necklace diamond were from her dressmakers, her jewelers, her coiffeurs. "Those people were her life."

    Wallis set herself the task of reinterpreting the trappings of sovereignty for her ex king. Denied the title of "Her Royal Highness," Wallis took another tack. If she could not be queen, or even royal, she would make a new kingdom.

    It would be gorgeous. And enviable and chic, a back of the hand flip at the frumpiness she saw in the Royal Family that turned its back on her. Was it whimsical style alone, or revenge, that led Wallis to use a diamond medal of the duke's royal parents to enliven a gold notebook cover?

    In France

    As the book shows, the Windsors in France ended up living far more lavishly than the Windsors in Buckingham Palace, where Queen Elizabeth II once sent young Prince Charles back outdoors to find a dog leash he had lost. "Dog leads cost money," she said. In Paris, the Windsors' pug dogs ate from solid silver bowls.

    In the book's scan of 50 years of photographs, beginning with the butler standing at the open front door of their mansion, Menkes compiles layer upon rich layer.
