Not only is he an expert on the entire Glenmorangie range, but he is also a chief authority on Ardbeg, leading education programs for both brands throughout the USA.

In the past 12 months Blackmore has travelled to over fifty U.S. cities, thirty cities across Asia and five cities in Canada. He has presented to over 55,000 people and been heard by an additional 500,000 viewers through television

David continues to prove time and again that his expertise in Scotch whisky, and particularly Glenmorangie, is unparalleled. Even though this is his third consecutive award, it is still just as thrilling to see someone so deserving be recognized for their relentless pursuit of excellence on behalf of our brand,” says Maxime Balay, Glenmorangie U.S. Brand Director.”It is with great pride that we can call David a member of the Glenmorangie family for the past eight years, and we look forward to many more to come.”

Blackmore’s most recent project was an international cross-industry initiative. David, joined by Dr. Bill Lumsden, worked on the program with three of Scotland’s top distillers, as well as representatives from the Scottish Government, DISCUS, SWA at Mt. Vernon, George Washington’s distillery.

The fastest growing single malt whisky in the U.S., Glenmorangie has received tremendous accolades from the International Wine and Spirits Competition, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the Wine Enthusiast’s Wine Star Awards. Most recently, Glenmorangie’s Private Edition Ealanta was named 2014 World Whisky of the Year by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, scoring 97.5 out of 100 points, and is described as having “One of the longest finishes of any Scotch this year…and borderline perfection.” In addition, over the last five years Glenmorangie has won more “Gold Best in Class” medals than any other single malt from the International Wine and Spirits Competition and was also named their 2012 Distiller of the Year.

Jewelry Television Launches ‘Color Me Stylish’ with David Zyla

Shopping network shows women how to use the power of color

The Jewelry Television (JTV) recently launched a series of broadcast and web-based content aimed to educate women on wearing colorful jewelry and clothing with confidence. Jewelry Television® (JTV) is one of the largest multichannel retailers of jewelry and gemstones in the U.S. appealing to fashion-conscious women, jewelry-making enthusiasts and private collectors. The privately-held shopping network broadcasts high definition programming, 24David Zyla , Emmy ® Award-Winning Stylist and Best-Selling Author’ hours a day, seven days a week, to more than 80 million U.S. households. www.JTV.com offers the most comprehensive jewelry and gemstone Learning Library on the internet, and is the third largest jewelry website according to Internet Retailer’s Top 500 Guide for 2012.

Hosted by Emmy award-winning stylist and color expert, David Zyla, women now have the opportunity to understand the theory of color and how to incorporate it into their own personal styles.

Zyla, the best-selling author of The Color of Style and Color Your Style, shares practical advice on everything from mixing metals to incorporating many shades of blue into your wardrobe.

My idea is that we all possess a certain set of colors in us and they’re dictated by the colors found in our hair, eye color and skin,” explained Zyla. “My passion is to help people discover and embrace the most authentic, very best versions of themselves, using color as the foundation.”

The network has short, impactful videos to demonstrate easy to remember color and style tips. “We frequently receive questions from customers on how to mix metals. They ask if it’s okay to wear both silver and gold jewelry at the same time,” noted Jill Johnson, vp of marketing for JTV. “David validates that mixing silver, gold and even bronze, copper and pewter is no longer a fashion faux pas, but a fashion statement.”

JTV is also rolling out ‘David’s Picks,’ a monthly feature exploring the company’s vast product selection to highlight the latest trends, essentials, and seasonal must-haves.

This is all part of our commitment to educating consumers,” noted Johnson. “Women simply don’t feel dressed without their jewelry so we’re helping them know how much, when, and what to wear. Let’s face it, self-esteem begins each morning when you stand before the mirror and feel confident about how you look.”

This crisp woody aroma opens with enticing top notes of fresh Ocean Water Accord and Costa Rica’s Junqillat Beach inspired coastline scent with a twist of bright Spearmint and Citrus Petit Grain Essence. The heart of the fragrance uncovers notes of warm Cardamon, Nutmeg, and Lavender. Sensual notes of Musk, Sandalwood, and Cedarwood anchor this exhilarating scent.

A state-of-the-art and sophisticated shopping experience awaits shoppers as Macy’s Herald Square unveils a striking new look for its signature world of beauty and fragrances today. The long-awaited reveal has been months in the making, culminating with the most dramatic makeover of a beauty department in modern retail history.

Beauty indeed does start from within. Located in the heart of the store and at the crossroads of the Main Aisle and the newly opened Memorial Door Entrance off of 34th Street, the new Cosmetics and Fragrances department at Macy’s Herald Square is the crowning moment of the extensive Main Floor renovation begun last year. Redesigned with new architectural accents and structural elements, two sets of sweeping marble staircases along both the 34th and 35th Street sides of the store frame the stunning new department and create a spectacular arena for shopping. For the first time, show windows along 34th Street have been opened to provide vistas from the street into the store. Passersby can now experience the energy and excitement of the city’s most popular beauty destination as they travel along the bustling thoroughfare.

Once inside, shoppers enter a world of breathtaking beauty accented by modern design aesthetics and a sleek, modern sensibility.
