Condiment Carnage!

Condiment Carnage

This has got to be the most subversive gift I have come across in a long time. Especially for someone with an immaculate too-good-to-be-true house. Eventually, the temptation to fire at will must become too much, and Ketchup chaos,  mayonnaise madness, or mustard mayhem will surely ensue. Whatever the sauce of choice, you can be sure the walls will never be the same again. Particularly for those people with perfect houses that have children as well. (if  they exist?)

Yummy!

Yummy

How marvellous, a mug that comes to you ready dribbled. I love the idea of this, and am convinced that this avoids the whole washing up mugs in front of people when they come to your house and all the mugs are dirty dilemma. I mean if you had a few more smudges around the outside, you could just casually explain it away as part of the individual design. Lets face it, anything that can lessen the amount of housework you have to do has got to be a good thing.

perfect for camping!

perfect for camping!

I was looking for some nifty stocking (mask) fillers when I came across this little gem. Well, I think it’s a gem, more of a gem heist really. And just perfect to eat your porridge out of, whilst um…. doing porridge. Truly the season’s most thoughtful gift, but what are you thinking about who you decide to give it to? Would they see the funny side? If they did, you might like to push the limit still further by also purchasing some of the Alcatraz soap and trying the one about being behind bars!

Sunny Devon

Sunny Devon

Our male models for TShirt Studio’s photo shoot in Devon…well actually that’s London photographer Gavin on the left.  The others are our models Tom, Rupert and Oz, recruited from Plymouth Albion rugby club.  It all went really well, and we all had a great time getting snapped in our guys gear.  Thanks to the lovely weather we had yesterday we got some superbly lit outdoor shots.  Watch this space to see them on our new look website coming in 2010!

Globall madness

Globall madness

With the news this week that the bubble in Dubai is about to pop rather dramatically, and many a footballer about to lose out on a hefty investment (bless), that squatters have taken over a 34 bedroom mansion near to Nigella that’s been empty for 7 years, and gold is headed for an all time high, you might be forgiven for thinking that the world is in a bit of a mess. So today I’m opting for a fair trade option with a bit of a message about global ecocide. Away on a private jet for a holiday in the sun would be nice though……

Jade and Regina

Jade and Regina

Our photo shoot for the revamp of our website.  We recruited models from the South West – that’s Jade on the left who’s just turned 21, and from as far as Spain – that’s Regina on the right, who’s over from Adalucia studying English.  So both of them were part of a team modelling our garments and gifts.  We had a top London photographer Gavin Kingcome to shoot the material and we chose a rural location in Devon – in fact a beautiful barn conversion.  Stay tuned for more on this!

It must be a real conundrum for the makers of reality television that when the most controversial characters leave a show a lot of the excitement goes along with it. Take John Sergeant, for example. There was a furore every week when viewers voted in their droves to keep him in, even though his dancing was as edgy as a tennis ball. It wasn’t half as entertaining after he’d gone. The same with those Jedward boys. It will be a totally different show without the amusement factor. Bring back the boys!

Out of control!

Out of control!

This t-shirt made me laugh out loud when I came across it today. It was my morning to a ‘t’ (if you’ll forgive the pun). It all started with hitting the snooze button a few times too many when the alarm went off and was downhill from then on. From merely rushing out of the house with a piece of toast firmly clenched between my teeth, which is my usual morning fodder, to hurling shoes in the car on the off chance a pair might be retrieved by the end of the journey. Sometimes, mornings just suck!

Yuk! It’s horrible out there. I really don’t want to be doing anything today, just staying in bed wrapped in the finest cashmere eating, peeled grapes and caviar and things. Sadly, apart from the fact that the sheets would get really gammy, I don’t think I can quite afford to wrap myself from top to toe in cashmere. Or if I did go for that kind of indulgence, the moths would get to me first. Still, I can always pretend, see I feel better already. Now all I need are some moth balls.

Fashion House

Fashion House

Wow! And kind of Yuk too! Norwegian architect Jens Werner Andersen seems to have got a tad carried away with the whole personalising thing.

Not content with a t-shirt or some other wearable fashion statement, good old Jens did the  house from top to toe in tasteful Burberry check. Now I’m all for making a statement, but this is really going some. I wonder if Burberry were happy about it, somehow I doubt it, it doesn’t exactly enhance the brand image.

Bet Daniela Westbrook would buy it though!
