Jamie Oliver's Italian olive Oil Buyer's Guide

Jamie's Italian brings you their amazing Olive Oil Buyer's guide. A beautifully crafted guide that tells you all you need to know about this fantastic ingredient. Use as a tasting guide, for cooking suggestions or as a handy manual when shopping for your next meal.

Although I love to cook I have to admit that I dont really use a great variety of ingredients and I tend to stick with the foods I am used too.

I love experimenting with new tastes and textures and what a better way to ease me into experimenting than with this simple guide to olive oil. I never knew how versatile olive oil could be. For example you can use it for frying, sauteing, as a dressing and even for baking.

I can't wait to test this out to spice up my meals!

Toys, Toys, Toy: Why We Can’t Help Buying Presents

If your house is anything like mine, you can’t set foot in any direction without stepping on one of your child’s toys.

Every evening after I put the children to bed, I tidy away their dolls and action figures.
Low and behold, as soon as my little ones are up in the morning, a bomb goes off in my living room and there are toys as far as the eye can see.

What2buy4kids.co.uk must have noticed the same thing, because they have been investigating the gift spending habits of European adults. If you thought you were alone, surrounded by the mountain of your children’s toys, you can rest assured. British mums and dads spend more on toys than anyone else in Europe or the USA!

Apparently, we can’t help ourselves, and are always looking for the next holiday or celebration as an excuse to buy presents for our nearest and dearest.

So, with Christmas around the corner, don’t feel bad about spending so much on the latest games and kits that our children have been begging us for. The information in this infographic shows that, when it comes to loosening the purse strings for the ones we love, we Brits just cannot help ourselves.

Utopia 360 Elite VR Headset by My ReTrak

Finding the perfect gift for dads or sons isn't always easy. My husband is hard to buy for, I usually ask him what he wants and he normally replies with "I can't think of anything I want", which is not the most helpful reply. He loves his games consoles PS4 etc. and even more so his old retro gaming consoles.

So bringing him into the modern day world I have been sent the Utopia 360 Elite Edition VR Headset from My ReTrak. 




It's a virtual ritual headset like no other I have come across! It is fully immersive and allows you to experience a world beyond your imagination.
