Here's 10 new launches – 5 in Interiors and 5 in Travel….

1. This Week I'm Loving…
I realise that it’s not quite right to discuss ‘back to school’ within the first few weeks of breaking up, but I spotted these London-themed school necessities from the London Transport Museum Shop and decided they were worth posting about!
The lunch bag and backpack are £9.99, while the wallet is £4.99.
2. Something unique…
If you’re into your crafts – knitting, sewing, card making etc, you might like to know that Craftstash has got 15% off all products right now. But be quick – the offer ends on 26thAugust.
If you’re a new buyer, you get 20% off your first purchase anyway.
3. Bargain Spot
While we’re on the subject of ‘back to school’, I might as well highlight some of the unique (and sweet-smelling) stationery goods at Home Bargains!
They’ve got fruity scented notepads for £1.79 (pictured), scented notepads for £2.99 and scented pens for 99p. Definitely worth getting down there pronto instead of doing what I do and leaving it to the last minute.
4. New Launch…
There’s new season bedding at B&M.
This Geo Ochre King Duvet Set is just £16.99, with other sizes available too. It’s made of 50% polyester and 50% cotton and includes the duvet cover and two pillowcases.
5. I've Got My Eye On….
It’s wonderful weather and there are plenty of garden jobs that could do with a bit of sprucing up, so I’ve got my eye on Frenchic Paint’s Al Fresco Range, which has seen the introduction of six new shades.
The company has also recently launched its new and improved Lazy range which features 15 colours.
I’ve personally used their paint range and I love that the company prides itself in not adding VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds), toxins or solvents which means that the paint has virtually no smell.
6. New adventure
The Bear Grylls Adventure, which opens this autumn at the NEC in Birmingham, has announced that advance tickets are available for purchase from 6st August.
Tickets will be available to the public for the world first adventure attraction via The Bear Grylls Adventure website, where visitors will be able to gain access to Basecamp and the four headline activities.
Tickets cost from £20, with combined Basecamp and headline adventure packages starting from £35. If visitors are up for the ultimate challenge, The Bear Grylls Adventure will offer a Go ALL in Pass for just £160 for a full day adventure.
7. UK Deal…
