A football player suffering “sweet torture”: Lane gets to choose “MAXI housewife of the month”!

Although it’s November, Novi Sad’ restaurant “Fontana” provided very warm and pleasant atmosphere, owing to yet another event to select “MAXI housewife of the month”!

Traditionally, in the centre of Novi Sad, women from all parts of Serbia, loyal readers of culinary editions published by “Color Press Group”, alongside socializing, get to show their cooking skills and good spirits. Today, their assignment was to make baklavas, and the jury had to struggle to make a selection among those most typical ones, filled with walnuts, to those featuring sour cherries, lemon, chocolate and biscuits.

The jury was comprised of: Milan Jovanović Lane, famous football player, Dobrila Strajnić Rajkov, assistant to editor of culinary magazines, Aleksandra Dudvarski, editor at “TV Novele“, and one of home cooks – contestants, whose number was randomly drawn from the basket, Kristina Mitrović.

Right after they made visual evaluation of baklavas, the jury members had to taste over twenty of them, and we witnessed that their assignment was far from naïve and simple.

The jury, admitting they felt sorry that they had to proclaim only three best baklavas, out of a wide range of excellent ones, decided on the following prizes: The publishing house “Prometej” granted a 5.000 RSD voucher for a long-time contestant Nađa Dojin. A seven-day accommodation in the villa “Jana” at Kopaonik, provided by “Jolly tours”, was granted to a modest housewife Ljiljana Ćosić, for whom this was not the first prize ever won, because she had been participating in the event many times before.

A 10.000 RSD voucher, granted by “MAXI”, as well as the title “MAXI housewife of the month” went to the hands of Radmila Vujnović, whose baklavas got the highest grades. Obviously excited, with tears in her eyes, the first-placed home cook was so kind to share her winning recipe with the portal’s readers.

After the winners were proclaimed, and the prizes granted, after taking photographs and wonderful time spent socializing at the restaurant “Fontana”, the “Color Press Group” team moved on to the Children’s Village in Sremska Kamenica.

As always, we were greeted by joyful youngsters who received baklavas made for them, CDs by “City records”, and many other various magazines of the largest media company in Serbia and the region!

Winning recipe: Baklava roulade

“MAXI housewife of the month”: Another successfully organized charity event in Niš!

During the early hours, “Color Press Group” team headed towards the beautiful city of Niš, where for the second time, charity event “MAXI housewife of the month” was organized.

After a few hours’ ride, on a cold and sunny day, we arrived at the restaurant “Kafanče Banjče”, where we were greeted by our kind hosts, and to our surprise, the restaurant was swarming with home cooks, cheerful and impatiently waiting for the event to begin.

This time, the housewives had the assignment to make meat pies, enjoying the process so much, not because of proudly presenting their skills, but because of the fact that their food would be handed in to the school “14. Oktobar”, where children with special needs are being educated.

Alongside our already well-known and loyal housewives, for the first time we were joined by housewives from: “Macedonian Association Vardar” from Niš, “Association Srce” from Niška Banja, and “Association Kruna”, also from Niška Banja.

After short introductions and an official part of the event, the jury had ahead of them a whopping task. They had to taste thirty two meat pies! Later, they admitted it was not easy for them, but they enjoyed it, because, as they said, in order to make something that beautiful and tasty, there must be a lot of effort and love to be incorporated. Their evaluation was done according to appearance and taste.

The jury was comprised of: Dragana Rodić Aranđelović, activist, head of the school “14. Oktobar“, Zoran Nikolić, Dragan Aranđelović, President of Culture Commission of Medijana Municipality, and Lidija Stojanović, owner of the restaurant Kafanče Banjče“.

Whereas the housewives enjoyed pleasant restaurant atmosphere with coffee and “Color Press Group” magazines, the jury proclaimed the winners: The third prize goes to Milena Cvetković, who received a cookbook by the “Prometej” publishing house from Novi Sad. The second prize went to the hands of Kosanka Savić, who would travel to Kopaonik, to the villa “Jana”, which is provided by friends from “Jolly tours”, while the first prize “MAXI housewife of the month” and a 10.000 RSD voucher went to Suzana Petrović.

With happiness and tears of joy shed by the winners, we bid a farewell to our hosts and left Niš, thrilled that another charity event was successfully organized!

“MAXI housewife of the month” from Niš shared her winning recipe with the portal’s readers:

CPG taking part in the “Olympic Day” again this year

Traditionally, the Serbian Olympic Committee, this year marked an International Olympic Committee Day, by organizing “Olympic Day” on the trim path at Košutnjak. Under the slogan “be humane – win together”, this event gathered numerous sports fans, whereas its aim was much higher – to show how humane we can be.

On this occasion, the best Serbian young sportsmen were presented. They will take part at the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, and everyone had a chance to get acquainted with the Chinese Culture, presented by the association “Far East” and the holistic centre “Krug”

Despite rainy weather, 2.500 people participated, and the most interesting races were those for children – 200 and 400 metres, as well as Fun Run 3.600 metres, for all ages. For the first time, a race for the disabled was organized this year, too.

As was the case over the previous years, the company “Color Press Group” joined the event, by taking part in a relay race for the event’s sponsors 6x200m. Other participants of this race were the Serbian Olympic Committee, McDonald’s, Delhaize Srbija, Vojvođanska banka, EKO Srbija, Heineken Srbija, ATOS, Radio S and Maruška. The purpose of this race is to make up mixed 6-member teams, comprised of the company’s employees, and the winner is the fastest team on 1.200m.

The “Color Press Group” team consisted of: Jovana Stojković, Daniela Stamenković, Marina Luković, Strahinja Antonić, Dušan Zoroe and Nenad Pagonis. For this event, they bought T-shirts of the DEBRA association, and thus donated the means for “butterfly children”.

DEBRA is an association aimed at those suffering from epidermolysis bullosa, taking care of all patients and their families in Serbia. Epdermolysis bullosa refers to delicate skin susceptible to injuries, just like the butterfly’s wings. Every day for the patients means new wounds, new bandages, raised eyebrows, pain, surgical procedures, in a nutshell, constant dependence, aid, care and having other people around. That is why those suffering from this illness are often dubbed “butterfly children”.

Humanitarian character was primary for this event, but also everyone played their part in promoting family values, healthy lifestyle, and physical exercises.

A little to us is a lot to someone else: “Color Press Group” delivered humanitarian aid to Krupanj!

Although in majority of Serbian towns the sun started to shine, and floods are gone, one small municipality still cannot sleep. Yes, you’re right, the municipality in question is – Krupanj. Over 17.000 inhabitants of this municipality, located in the region of Mačva, have been through hell and back over the past few days. According to Municipal Assembly Chairman Aleksanar Zeljić and his deputy Predrag Marjanović, inhabitants of Krupanj, with over 500 flooded houses, and 40 houses that collapsed, today can only be grateful for having survived the outburst of flooding waves, while observing the water sweeping away everything that they have been building up for years. “It is devastating to see how a house is torn down by a river, which you can almost cross on foot during summer”, Zeljić said. Following this occasion, the “Color Press Group” team set out on a journey to Šabac – by devastated roads, coming across debris, wasteland and destroyed trees, thus giving its small contribution in necessary items: clothes, food, diapers, irons, chairs and other pieces of furniture that we had collected for this cause. Once popular viscose factory “Krupnjanka” has nowadays been turned into a point where humanitarian aid is delivered, and schoolchildren from a nearby school are volunteering in it. People are continuously coming to bring aid, and according to Raša Ristanović, chief of Emergency Committee for receiving humanitarian aid, the people living in Krupanj are deeply touched by solidarity of people from all over Serbia and the region, and all those who responded and helped in these troubled times, simultaneously coordinating how to unload one truck, and then the van by “Color Press Group”. It was a matter of luck that there was only one victim in Krupanj, but the Municipality Chairman points out that he is afraid of psychological consequences this agony might leave on the citizens, emphasizing that the traumatized children had started to cry a few days before, when a light rain started to fall. On the positive side, at the dawn of the raspberry season, the citizens now truly hope that this season will be as successful for them as the previous one!

Perwoll Fashion Week Awards: The L & Z awards granted to Nataša Maljević and Matrix team!

The 35th Perwoll Fashion Week came to an end, and last night a solemn ceremony was held at the Diva Lounge Bar in the Grand Casino, in order to grant awards to the best participants of this leading regional fashion project.

Fashion studio “Click”, organizer of the Fashion Week, granted a special prize of the Belgrade Fashion Week to Bata Spasojević, to mark his jubilee – 15 years of work and presentation at the BFW.

On behalf of the “Lepota i zdravlje” magazine, Milica Đokić granted the award for best make-up & hair innovation to a make-up artist Nataša Maljević and Matrix team for hair styling.

“Good make-up and hair at fashion shows follow the concept of a collection, or even additionally emphasize it, and that is why creation and design of make-up & hair identity of the show is a special art form. Teams comprised of make-up artists and hairdressers, who make a look in the backstage, have to be very professional, skilful and coordinated, because it takes speed in order for all the models to appear at the runway on time – not only with impeccable outfit, but also with make-up and hairstyle to match. These professionals for their make-up and hair magic have only approximately twenty minute for each model, or even less. Being a magazine devoted to women, we know very well how important the make-up and hair are – at fashion shows, of course, but also in everyday life, because they represent powerful weapon which can raise our confidence and cheer us up. Exactly because of this, we admire those creative people, because with the look they show at runways they inspire us to be more courageous in everyday situations, be creative and step out from usual patterns and schemes. Due to all this, the magazine “Lepota i zdravlje”, is proud to present the award for the best make-up & hair innovation at this year’s thirty fifth, Perwoll Fashion Week. For the best make-up innovation, we have chosen the avant-garde look at the Manish Arora fashion show, provided by a make-up artist Nataša Maljević. The hair award for the most creative hairstyle this time goes to Matrix team for an impressive hair styling at the Ugg Australia fashion show. Key word – we were knocked off our feet by volume!”, said Jasmina Ubiparip, executive editor of the “Lepota i zdravlje” magazine.

Jury of the “Bazar” magazine made a decision to grant the award “Marija Kranjc” for the best collection to the KLASA Association, whereas the style person award went to the actress Jelena Gavrilović. The KLASA brand also received the award for the most distinctive fashion show, granted by the ELLE magazine, as well as the award for the best fashion show, granted by the “Grazia” magazine. Marina Krtinić was proclaimed the best model at the Perwoll Fashion Show.

The award for the best male model, granted by the magazine “Esquire” went to the hands of Petar Pavlović, while the title for the best dressed person at this year’s fashion event, according to the “Stilbook” magazine, went to Marija Minić.

The company “Textil” granted this year’s “Textil Young Designer Award” to Ivan Džolić, who was proclaimed best young designer.

Sarajevo Pro-femina 2014: Women’s health in focus

The conference Pro-Femina 2014, organized by the magazine “Ljepota i zdravlje” (“Beauty and Health”) was held on February, 6th at Sarajevo’s hotel “Bristol”. The conference’s topic was women’s health, and even more so prevention of illnesses, but also present were the issues faced today by patients and doctors in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and the question what to do in order to enable advancement of the health system in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The program was opened by the first panel “To prevent and to cure”, during which all participants agreed that a key problem is negligence of one’s own health and a way of life involving mainly a sitting position. According to them, the only way to prevent numerous illnesses would be to educate the population. Prim Dr Nina Jurić, clinical cytology specialist, emphasized that there are no statistic data regarding illness and number of citizens who already suffer from some illness, which makes it harder for doctors to do their job. In continuation, the Case Study “Food for female body” followed. Within this Case Study, experts Edita Katadžić and Alen Konaković from the company “Biofamilija” presented interesting ingredients, which can be used in prevention of various illnesses, and for body detoxification as well.

As part of their presentation, they called for recognition of macrobiotic food as an alternative healing method in Bosnia-Herzegovina, as has already been established in other countries. Participants of the next panel “And what if we get sick” unanimously concluded that the greatest problem in Bosnia-Herzegovina today is that so many health systems exist within each canton, and also in the Republic of Srpska, but without accordance among them.

This issue causes huge problems for patients and doctors alike. Furthermore, patients are worried about high prices of medicines and waiting lists, but this problem cannot be solved easily unless serious steps are taken and unless a thorough reform of the health system in Bosnia-Herzegovina is conducted. In addition, Novka Agić, director of the Bureau for insurance and re-insurance of the Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina, pointed out that in Bosnia-Herzegovina there are a lot of citizens living without any health insurance, and that this problem should be resolved as quickly as possible.

Christmas lunch for the homeless

Now traditionally, “Color Press Group” and the restaurant “Lazin salaš” brought Christmas lunch to protégées of the Daily Care Center for the homeless in Novi Sad
