As part of it’s free Wellbeing Happy Hour series, Stars’n’Bars welcomes two women to talk about feng shui and psychogenealogy on Tuesday, November 21.
Feng shui specialist Tiina Gallas, founder of OZERA Interiors, graduated as an Interior Architect from the École Nationale du Bâtiment in France with a specialisation in Sustainable Interior Design. She then went on to obtain a Feng Shui Interior Designer certificate from the New York Institute of Art & Design.
“Today, many of us strive for a healthy, joyful and balanced living in this fast-paced modern world and a well-designed space can contribute to finding harmony in our lives,” the native Finn, who has lived in the region for 15 years, said.
“My specialisation in feng shui and ecological interior design will help create balanced, healthy and harmonious interiors without forgetting aesthetic details, the touch of luxury, sensuality and beauty.”
The second guest speaker on Tuesday is Nancy Novena, an authorised Bach flower consultant. It was in the 1930s when British homeopath Edward Bach claimed that the dew found on flower petals retain imagined healing properties of that plant.
Ms Novena uses Bach flower techniques to reharmonise emotions – to build self-confidence and find happiness and inner peace – as well as for psychogenealogy, a form of therapy that identifies and provides insight into negative patterns that can be transmitted across generations.
Stars'n'Bars weekly health hour, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, takes place at the downstair's bar and provides an opportunity to meet wellbeing specialists while enjoying complimentary snacks. No entre fee or reservation required.
Tuesday, November 28, features Beauty Concept’s Salima and Habiba Vilches of Reiki Usui.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The decorations are going up all around the Principality, the snow-dusted Christmas trees have popped up around the Casino and there’s a festive feeling in the air as you walk down the avenue Princess Grace, Starbucks gingerbread latte in hand. Tis the season also for fashion goodies. Fashion goodies in the form of the annual Gucci “Gift Giving” campaign and holiday catalogue convincing us that crystal covered sweaters, furry bejewelled slippers, and cat print T-shirts are what’s missing from our lives and the lives of our loved ones this holiday season.
Inspired by the tale of Icarus, Spanish artist Ignasi Monreal, who first collaborated with Gucci two years ago on their #GucciGram digital art project, wanted to convey a sense of Icarus flying too close to the sun and falling down into a Gucci-filled heaven. Over 80 illustrations featuring Gucci accessories and ready-to-wear updates from the Gucci Cruise 2018 collection interweave into a narrative spanning multiple influences and references from the Renaissance to Greek mythology. The 2017 Gucci Gift Book makes us dream by transporting us to an utterly surreal yet somehow familiar world: Hercules’ winged horse Pegasus kicks off its Gucci shoes in the Gucci office parking lot. Stick figures on street signs accessorise with Gucci bags. The world as we know it has been tipped on its head, shaken up and given the Alessandro Michele touch.

As well as the Gift Giving book, there will also be new interactive content on the Gucci App ranging from filters for your photos, holiday cards that can be customised and shared, and software to animate the new Gucci shop windows. The window installations will be reflective of the seasonal Gift Giving campaign with Renaissance inspired themes and excerpts of Lorenzo de’ Medici’s “A Song for Bacchus” poem while yellow temples and pink LED neon frames display the items.
In the Gucci world shopping isn’t a standalone experience. The experience begins before and continues after you make your purchase. This is not your run-of-the-mill holiday shopping. This is holiday shopping done the Gucci way, where everything has a deeper meaning. To know more about the Gucci Gift catalogue you can check out the Gucci.com homepage where #GucciGift has taken over.
