Aline Conus Energy Cuisine

Nutrition is essential for our overall health. We depend on it for vitality, energy, our ability to perform mentally as well as physically, and for our entire well-being. It was with this in mind that I first realised the potential of Energy Cuisine. When I came across the concept in 2011, I not only discovered a nutritional philosophy that optimises our health, but one that can boost our overall attitude and our potential for achievement. Energy Cuisine has yet to move into mainstream healthcare, but I believe that it will soon be recognised as a crucial component in most, if not all, dietary plans. Energy Cuisine’s overarching goals are to assist with the body’s internal detoxing and cleansing process, as well as helping its ability to heal and build muscle mass. By targeting the metabolism and digestive system, Energy Cuisine is designed to boost an overall feeling of vitality, high...

Aline Conus – Baptism in the Jura region France

1.     History of baptism Baptism is Rooted in religion Sooner or later, no matter how much care is taken to keep something clean, everything gets dirty. According to Christian religion, God provided a set of standards to demonstrate this principle. That set of standards provides the instructions on how to recognize the dirt –uncleanliness– and also the procedures for ceremonially cleaning them. In the past, the cleansings, or baptisms, were for everything from mildew on walls, to purification after child birth. Baptism is a sacred ceremony by which something or someone is purified by a holy liquid in front of the eyes of God in order to enter a new life in good conditions. From the XIIth century onwards baptisms were also used by the Church in France as an administrative way to register every baby born in the country in order to keep a registry of each person. 2.

Aline Conus – 奢侈品网店很红火

5月4日,YOOX集团上线了瑞士时尚品牌Bally的全中文官方网络旗舰店。YOOX是全球众多著名时尚品牌的网络零售合作伙伴,已在去年年底上线了Emporio Armani中文网站,今年3月上线了Marni的中文网站,今后还准备推出一系列品牌的中文网络旗舰店。中国奢侈品消费惊人的规模、增速与潜力已几乎尽人皆知。最近,日渐成熟的B2C电子商务又为这个市场的开发提供了新的热点。 “2010年我们的销售额超过800万美元。”Aline Conus出生于法国,在英国做过电子商务,几年前来到中国从事洋酒进口,奢侈品品牌供货和在线销售似乎正是她最在行的两个领域。2008年她在上海注册了宜博商贸有限公司,这家只在上海有一个办公室的公司现在运营着“买名牌”和“洋酒”两个网站,把商品卖到了中国大陆超过200个城市的消费者手中。 在“买名牌”商城中可以看到中国消费者耳熟能详的GUCCI、Chanel,也有ETTINGER等在中国还不很流行的品牌。其位于巴黎的办事处与国际奢侈品牌进行协商,以取得在中国大陆网上销售的代理权。买名牌的市场调研主管Marie-Sophie Horreard说:“其实我们只是另一个经销商,与品牌专卖店一样。但是如果这些品牌想在中国开大量的专卖店,调研和建设费用将是惊人的。我们通过在线销售,就帮他们省掉了这些麻烦。” 省了麻烦的不只是奢侈品牌,还有购买它们的消费者。贝恩咨询(Bain & Company)在《2010年中国奢侈品市场调研报告》中指出:“互联网正在追赶杂志,成为消费者获得奢侈品信息的最主要来源。”你不能在杂志上看到一个皮包的广告就直接把它买下来,但这在互联网上是可行的。 根据主营奢侈品广告的桦榭集团思迪广告公司在首届IDEA Forum上引述的数据,中国市场在2010年奢侈品消费达65亿美元,连续三年全球市场增长率第一。而且展望未来的三年有望超过日本,成为全球最大的奢侈品消费国家,在未来5年奢侈品消费的中国人口将上升到6.3个亿。在已经购买奢侈品的消费者当中,已经有43%的人开始在网上购买奢侈品。...

Aline Conus – Wine education

Aline Conus is one of an influx of young Europeans in Shanghai. Many of them run restaurants and food and wine firms, trying to capitalise on Europe’s food traditions by selling them to the Chinese. She grew up in rural France near the border with Switzerland but has lived in Shanghai’s elegant French concession for five years. Europeans once sold opium from this opulent neighbourhood, but today Aline runs yangjiu.com, which allows Chinese customers to foster good business relations by sending European wines, spirits and hampers as gifts. I watch her lecture eager Chinese customers about wine history at her offices. Curious young people pay around 200 yuan, or £18, for a weekly wine seminar in which they learn how to smell, swill and taste wines. But Aline tells me it’s not always about the taste or the history. A lot of her customers spend money on expensive wines as...
