Quick it is snowing – five very cool sledges to buy

By Stefano on January 14th, 2013

Ok, so it predicted snow and all London got was a very light dusting, but if the forecasters are right – and they are never wrong are they?! – there should be more snow on its way.

So now is the time to get yourself a sledge. If you order it now it ought to be delivered in plenty of time for when the real dollop of the white stuff happens later in the month (That is provided the postie can brave the snow to get through to drop it off .) Here then are five great sledges to choose from and The Beatles giving a masterclass in how to use them.

Porsche Aluminium Sledge £300ish

If you are feeling flash then this sledge is a Porsche. Yep it is designed by the same people who put the cars together and comes with a logo to prove it. It is made from very sturdy aluminum and has a fake leather seat. There are however two bits of bad news. One, it is priced like a Porsche and two, it is second hand only, they do pop up on ebay from time to time.

While the whole Shiny Media team are safely ensconced at home I pity the poor souls who have actually had to drag their carcasses into work.
I wont be leaving the house for anything other than stocking up on Hob Nobs, but if you do have to brave the cold these boots would be perfect for an old-time intrepid explorer look. They’re £240 by Daita Kimura at Farfetch which is pretty pricey, but look like they would last you a lifetime.

Tuck your thick socks into your archaically befabricked trousers (I’m thinking waxed cotton or wool-lined leather), strap some tennis rackets to your feet and make like you’re off to conquer some peaks when in fact you’re only going to conquer a block of cheese via the shop next door. With your mouth.

Odds of a White Christmas very high with Demeter Fragrance Library

By admin on December 17th, 2007

SnowI don’t know about you but I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, and at the time of writing Ladbrokes are offering odds at 4/1 of London getting one so I might well be in luck.
For those of you who are unfortunate enough to live in a climate where brass monkeys don’t live in fear of castration, you might just have to settle for some snow scented perfume. Those crazies at Demeter Fragrance Library claim to have bottled the smell of snow (riiiiiiight, Demeter, of course you have) and the scent can purchase it from their on-line store.
The Demeter range includes Dirt, Grass (both kinds), Laundromat and Lobster as well as more sensible smells like Gardenia and Ginger. It’s the loopier scents that are most entertaining however and I’m sure there’s a few perfect gifts in there. If you know anyone with a particular olfactory obsession, check it out.
