Posted on September 04, 2014 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

Ladies and Gentleman, September has just arrived and with it we're introducing Bon Voyage, the new section for all you "intrepid travellers". All the goodies you can see here plus many others are now up and running in our shop. Saddle up!

Handmade Saddle Bag

 

 

This bicycle bag is made with old-school British detailing using the finest leather to ensure durability. Created to carry your tools for the day, it's the perfect combination of utility and design. Agreed?

Retro Ladie's and Men's Bikes
 
 
Inspired by 1950s and 60s California cycles, designed and hand assembled by United Cruiser in France, these stunning pieces of equipment have got to be the most beautiful bikes on the road today! You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close.

Leather Bluetooth Speaker
 
 
Based on the iconic transistor radio designs of the 1960s, these were created with the highest quality audio circuitry and wrapped in a classic hand sewn perforated leather case to protect them. Who says Bluetooth speakers need to look like ugly plastic? Perfect to pop on your bike.

Now what? Do you feel ready to get up and go?
 
By the way, just wanted to remind you that our  * * S U M M E R  S A L E * *  is still ON with products at 40% OFF and ALL ORDERS placed by September 20th will come with this lovely free gift - Fine Italian Pasticeria Tin.

Cycling Fever

Posted on August 14, 2014 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past five years you will be aware that this country is in the grip of a cycling pandemic. Even the Tour de Francearrived this summer, with the Grand Départ in Yorkshire. All the brits are in the mood.

The number of Londoners cycling to work has doubled in the last ten years, with Londoners braving the busy roads to escape sweltering tube temperatures, chaotic rush hours and increased commuting costs. So is all about being ‘cycle-friendly’and I am quite like this as I was living in Aarhus last year and I must say that for Danes is a way of life, is part of their culture.

Cycling is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine because it's also a form of transport. It saves you money, gets you fit, reduces stress and is good for the environment...What else? Oh yes, cycling benefits the whole of London as it reduces pollution and drastically cuts congestion on public transport.

As the popularity of cycling grows and grows, here is our selection of products we have prepared for you to be in the mood too. Coming soon. Very bristish. Hope you like it.

Pimms O'clock

Posted on August 03, 2014 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

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?

Holiday thoughts

Posted on June 30, 2014 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

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,

Anahí & Peter
