Helloooo there! I'm back to London, back to reality, back to the rain! :) Yes... Nothing falls like London Rain, Nothing heals me like you do (...)
Which reminds me that there's an old Scandinavian saying that says: " There's no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing." This is something I learned when I was living in Denmark and I couldn't agree more.
Here's why. We've got our Storm Umbrellas.
These brollies are real beauties - and a clever technological breakthrough from the Netherlands. At long last, these are the umbrellas that don't collapse in the wind. The ultra-strong senz° automatic folding umbrella with extra power, which opens & closes by a simple push of the button (easy and fast). The incredible thing is that it's Windproof up to 80Km/h!!! So you won't find yourself with your brolly blowing to pieces anymore on those wild rainy days.
Also, you can choose among four different models: Black Space Place, Blue Dot Dot, Grey Leopard Silver and B&W Duzz Buzz, depending on your taste or style. I prefer a classic and elegant type like the Blue Dot Dot, while Peter prefers the trendy one - B&W Duzz Buzz.
We also have our Large Waxed Canvas Duffle Bags (H55cm) for everyday carrying of all your kit - even if you're on your bike or just as a sportsbag.
These British made bags are designed for a multitude of uses, particularly ideal for airline hand luggage as they meet all specifications. They come in 100% waterproofed waxed cotton with inner lining and a useful document pocket. The heavy duty woven canvas strap is perfect for comfortable carrying of this great piece of kit.
Features Two D-Links and a RiRi zip and the strap colour comes in Oxford Tan. You can choose between Olive or Black in this size, although we have other colours in other sizes as well.
So finally, you can be Singing in the Rain! Enjoy the rest of the week.
From London with love,
Anahí & Peter
There's no summer drink more quintessentially British than Pimm's. Everyone knows that. Well, everybody in England, because it is quite an English thing, you know dahlings. I dare compare it to Spanish Sangria, but more stylish. "Seductively tawny in colour, and festively festooned with fruit and sprigs of mint, it's a drink inextricably linked to the great British summer, especially events like Ascot and Wimbledon" (you can also guzzle one if you're simply lazing in the back garden on a hot sunny day! ).
Did you know that it was first produced in 1823 by Mr. James Pimm, a 19th century London oyster bar owner who decided to offer his clients a "fruit cup" that developed from the popular punch? The recipe is still a secret; supposedly, only six people know exactly how it is made, but here goes a Traditional Recipe, easy and quick to prepare:
Take the Jug /Drink Dispenser or a glass and add as much ice as you like.
Pour one part Pimm's No. 1 with three parts lemonade over the ice.
Add mint leaves, thin cucumber slices, orange slices and strawberry and serve.
It can also be mixed with Champagne (or a sparkling white wine) "Pimm's Royal Cup".
Now you know that it's the perfect drink to serve your guests because it's universally liked and (most importantly) looks so good in our Kilner Drink Dispenser! (Yes, they're back in stock so you'd better hurry)How pretty does it look??? Anyone for Pimm's?
I want to break. I've been seeing Tuesday and dreaming about Friday. Sincerely, it's not me, it's you...
By the way, do you pin?? So we do! Follow us on Pinterest for colourful inspiration and ideas.
We are almost in July and I don't have any idea yet of where I'm going to spend my holidays this summer with my hubby. My only wish is to go for a few days to the beach, enjoy the sunshine and swim in the warm blue water (I must confess that I've just did it, I've spent a couple of days somewhere in the Mediterranean, but sshhh, that's a secret).
Peter is going to his beloved Côte d'Azur, since he loves the French so much..! (let's see if they win the match tonight, at least they're still in it unlike our Spain and England). His passion for the area goes back his childhood family holidays and the gorgeous scent of the local plants, the sound of the cicadas at night and that amazing view along the coast with the contrast between the sea and mountains. The food's not bad either.
What would you consider when you choose a destination for your holidays? Do you prefer to chilling out at the beach or an adventure trip? We wanna know your thoughts and great ideas! C'mon, don't be shy.
From London with love,
