10 New Things: What You Should Know!
(19th-26th January, 2018)
Welcome to 10 New Things! Every week I showcase 10 new launches and deals in Interiors and Travel.
1. This Week We're Loving…
Frenchic Paint’s new Trim Paint! It’s available in the same 10 colours as the Wall Paint, and is perfect for painting radiators, skirting boards, coving, metal piping, door surrounds and even glass!
The paint has all the usual qualities you expect from Frenchic – EN:71-3 certified, odourless, washable, non-fading and quick drying – and is self-priming, self-sealing and hard wearing leaving a smooth, low-sheen satin finish.
One coat goes a very long way, with coverage up to 14m2 per litre. Prices for a 500ml tin are £13.95.
2. My Latest Purchase…
I spotted this mug for £2.99 in The Range and had to have it!
I think most adults feel like this at some point throughout the week! Maybe even more than once! You can grab it here.
3. Bargain Spot
With Valentine’s Day on the horizon – forget the popcorn for movie date night and get your mitts on this fondue set from Flying Tiger instead!
The best bit about it? It costs just £5!
4. New Launch…
Now the kids can get in on the ‘industrial-chic’ action with the Rosa Kids range, which offers a twist on the Balloon Cage Pendant Light from Urban Cottage Industries.
There are four colour combinations to choose from: Petrol Blue with Fuschia Pink Fabric Lighting Cable, Mustard with Black and White Fabric Lighting Cable, Pink with Sage Green Fabric Lighting Cable or Grey with Cream Fabric Lighting Cable.
You can hang them straight from the ceiling, or pair with a ceiling hook to really showcase the coloured cable to their full effect.
5. I've Got My Eye On….
How cool is this Constellations Transforming Mug from Prezzybox? you have any budding astronomers in the family…this one's for them!
It’s currently on sale for £11.99!
6. Flight Sale…
bmi has introduced new flights from Bristol to Gothenburg.
Launching on 22nd January, the new twice-weekly route takes the total number of destinations served by bmi from Bristol to nine – including Paris, Milan, Munich, Brussels, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Aberdeen.

The return flights will depart Gothenburg on Tuesdays at 14.40 and arrive in Bristol at 16.00 and on Fridays, departing Gothenburg at 11.40, arriving Bristol at 13.00.
7. UK Deal…
Thanks to UK self-catering lodge company, Landal GreenParks UK, it’s easier to plan – and afford – a family staycation this year, with its offer of a £30 low deposit.
The offer is available across all three Landal GreenParks UK locations in lodges sleeping between two to eight guests.
Guests heading to Landal Darwin Forest can try their hand at being Robin Hood for the day with an archery class and woodland walks or let the kids run wild in Little Monkeys indoor soft play.
Landal Gwel an Mor’s on-site wildlife encounters allow guests to get up close with the friendly local fauna through night walks, rock pooling, falconry and even badger watching. There’s also an opportunity to hand-feed the Feadon Farm foxes.
Those heading to Landal Kielder Water & Forest Park can enjoy cycling around the largest man-made lake in Northern Europe or let the kids drive themselves mad on Crazy Karts.
A stay at Landal Darwin Forest costs from £289 based on four sharing a Hasson Classic 2 lodge and minus the £30 pre-paid deposit. All lodges include home-from-home comforts including flat screen TVs, kitchen utensils and luxury toiletries.
8. Worldwide Deal…
I’ve been really impressed with some of the holidays offered by icelolly.com as they offer exceptional value for money.
As an example, a luxury five-star holiday to Dubai (with free half-board and kids stay free!) costs from £579 in July.
The company always appears to have new deals on – so do check them out. But be warned – some of the deals expire on 24th January.

However, 70% people with urinary leakage do not seek advice or treatment.
