1.  Perfectly pampered with Pink

In keeping with all things soft and pink for Valentine’s Day, Dart Marina Health Spa in Dartmouth is launching a new range of hand, nail and foot treatments called Pinks Boutique! Made in England from 100% natural and organic ingredients, Pinks Boutique will be available to transform all fingers and toes that pass through the door of the Health Spa on Friday 11th February from noon – 6pm and Saturday 12th February from 9am – 7pm.

Spa Manager, Lesley Dennison explains: “The Pinks Boutique range is designed to restore your skin’s natural balance. It is pure home grown goodness – each product is hand blended with care in England and accredited by the Soil Association.  “We hope guests will come and enjoy being pampered at the Spa over the Valentine’s Weekend – and we’ll serve tea and locally made cupcakes to all our visitors. Our new Pinks’ manicure and pedicure are like no other - hands and feet are exfoliated and massaged to improve circulation, cuticles are cared for with oils and creams, the nail shape is perfected and treatment basecoats and colour are applied for the perfect finish. The products have a beautiful aroma and the experience is sheer bliss!”

The new range of Pinks Boutique products include:
Hand Balm – a super-hydrating balm made with rich organic Shea Butter, Sweet Orange, Neroli and Vitamin E that moisturise and promote cell regeneration. A little goes a long way.
Cuticle Oil – Rosa Mosqueta and Vitamin E softens and nourishes cuticles.
Hand Soak - essential oils of Sweet Orange Blossom infuse natural mineral crystal and dead-sea salts to create this relaxing soak.
Hand Exfoliant - a combination of dead-sea salt and organic Jojoba Oil to leave skin feeling delightfully supple and polished.
Foot Balm - Rich Shea Butter provides intensive care for dry skin whilst the fresh blend of Peppermint and Geranium revitalise the feet.
Foot Soak - a balancing foot soak using ground Himalayan rock crystal salt, which leave feet refreshed and invigorated.

3.  The year of the Rabit

Celebrate the Chinese New Year in style. Add some tradition to the cold winter months and join in a Chinese New Year celebration at Dartmouth Golf and Country Club. The Chinese New Year is the start of the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays, the Spring Festival, where the Chinese give presents and sweep out the bad luck from their homes. The New Year is looked at as a great way to reconcile and forget grudges and what better way to start than by joining in the celebrations at DGCC. The Year of the Rabbit will be commemorated on Friday February 11, the latest in the club’s themed evenings, starting at 7.30pm with a drink on arrival followed by a two-course Chinese buffet. To book a ticket for just £19.95 per person, contact the bar and bistro on 01803 712013


4.   'Breakfast at Tiffany's'

Breakfast at Tiffany’s (PG) - 50 Years on @ the Flavel, Dartmouth
Screening on Mon 14th Feb @ 7.30pm & Thurs 17th Feb @ 2.30pm

The Perfect Way to Spend Valentine’s Evening………
It's been 50 years since Audrey Hepburn's version of chic wild thing Holly Golightly first hit the big screen. Ever since, women have seen something compelling in her story – especially those not fooled by the 'happy' ending.
This pure classic has been digitally re-mastered, giving a high definition picture and sound quality that is second to none with the all new Flavel digital technology & is a favourite for many people……

Set in 1961, based on Truman Capote's novella about Paul (George Peppard), a struggling writer who is intrigued with his neighbour, Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn). As she staggers home early one morning in her little black dress and sunglasses after yet another all-night bender during which she likely doled out small favours to amorous older gentlemen in exchange for rent money. Pausing in front of Tiffany’s, Holly munches a Danish and sips coffee as she admires the jewellery in the window. It’s an iconic movie moment. Holly sees herself as a free-spirit, a party girl, someone who, as she puts it, won’t be caged by love or commitments. It’s a lonely life, but it pays the bills. The’60s are on the verge of swinging.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is packed with wonderful dialogue and unforgettable moments, including a hilarious shoplifting scene and, of course, the transcendent moment when the beautiful Hepburn sings “Moon River” on her fire escape. (Henry Mancini was commissioned to come up with a song that would fit within Hepburn’s very narrow vocal range.) Whether or not Holly and Paul end up together is ultimately less important than whether they can forgive each other — and themselves — for the many errors of their ways. Capote’s New York is not a place where redemption comes easily, but maybe these two can find it. Holly deserves a happy ending. Tickets from the Box Office, 01803 839530 or online by clicking here, but hurry!
