Bend it like Broste
Who said that candles had to be straight? It certainly wasn’t anyone at Broste Copenhagen and they know a thing or two about candles.
The new collection of candles from Broste are mini sculptures which will add panache to your table or mantlepiece. There are two bendy shapes and four different colours: rainy day, fungi, Indian tan and honey gold.
In the production of the candles Broste uses selected raw materials such as fully refined paraffin wax, high-grade stearin and pure cotton wicks. All candles are made without palm oil.


The candles are called Bend and both shapes retail at £30.00 each.

But that is no all they have also brought out an advent candle
You don’t even need a candle holder- all you do it light it.

The Advent candle called Lucia comes in 3 colours white, rainy day and fungi.

They retail at £45.00

Nordic Bistro
The new range of drinking glasses from Broste Copenhagen is designed by Aurelien Barbry and his design philosophy, “to move objects towards more simplicity and obviousness. To create a dialogue with the end user and to renew typologies”, fits in perfectly with theirs.
The initial idea behind the “Nordic Bistro” drinking glass was brought to life after sitting at a buzzing bistro in Copenhagen. The design needed to be functional, simple and yet original with a recognizable outline. The solid glasses are stackable and fit for everyday use in your home or in a restaurant. The collection consists of six different stackable drinking glasses, three water glasses in different sizes and three wine glasses, all in the unique colour “Smoke”.
The water glasses retail at £11.90, £13.50 and £14.50
Champagne £16.50, White wine £16.50 and Red wine £17.90

ELI Tableware – Scandinavian Design inspired by Japan

The new minimalist ELI collection from Broste Copenhagen is characterised by its round edges and soft colours, which gives connotations to the modern Japanese tableware. Fine and refined. Japanese culture has a certain aesthetic to it that is entirely their own, and there are few places where this is more evident than the dining table.
The Japanese inspired collection has above all an aesthetic utility and consists of five ceramic items; two cups with or without handle, a small jug, a bowl and a rectangular plate. The collection comes in five different coloured glazes, which give the collection a playful touch where the reactive glaze creates an organic feel and ensures no two items are exactly alike. Only the soft blue has a glossy glaze – reflecting light and adding vivid accents to the surfaces. The matte finish of the other items is unreflective and opaque, and has a subtle texture to its surface that is reminiscent of natural stone.
You choose whether to go with one colour or mix and match the colours and perhaps other tableware.

Mug £7.50 Jug £13.50 Bowl £10.50

Mug with handle £8.90 Square plate £14.90 bowl £6.50

New Holiday Adventure Features Team of Intrepid Youngsters on Quest to Save Santa

New York, NY, Oct. 19, 2020 — Not even the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade could persuade the people lining the streets to look up from their phones. Only a few small children even noticed that something was horribly amiss: Santa Claus was a no-show. In an era when children practically dictate their wish lists and parents scramble to outdo each other, it seems the holiday spirit — along with Santa — has disappeared. When word spreads that Santa has, in fact, been kidnapped, it’s up to a group of unfairly labeled children culled from The Naughty List to rescue Santa and remind everyone of the true meaning of Christmas. Will these intrepid youngsters rise to the challenge? There’s only one way to find out!

Author Thomas Conway sets the stage for worldwide adventure in this imaginative, modern Christmas tale that blends elements of pop culture with the age-old tradition of Santa Claus. The Naughty List opens in a world without Santa, where toy manufacturer Eastern Industries has just released a new holiday marketing scheme, monopolizing the attention of the children and draining their holiday spirit. With Christmas fast approaching and the North Pole in chaos, a team of intrepid youngsters recruited from Santa’s Naughty List aim to rescue Santa and save the holiday.

While primarily a Santa tale, The Naughty List cleverly incorporates Winter holiday beliefs from around the world, including the legend of Marduk, a Babylonian god; the Roman feast of Saturnalia; the epic story of Jangar from North Asia; Moravian traditions of animal communication; and the present real-life adventures of Israeli Santa Claus, Nicola Abdou.

Also sprinkled with references to holiday favorites such as Miracle on 34th Street, T’was the Night Before Christmas, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and others, this wonderfully rich tale promotes right over wrong, good over evil and love over fear.

Suitable for all ages, The Naughty List skillfully weaves valuable lessons about overindulgence and society’s tendency to put labels on children, with the overarching theme that when kids misbehave they should not be defined by their bad deeds but rather see it as a learning opportunity, since when we appreciate the best in humanity and combine our talents, we are capable of almost anything.

The Naughty List, winner of the 2020 Indie Book Award in the E-Book Fiction category, is the first release from Thomas Conway. His 30-year career spans various industries. When not at work, he devotes his time to environmental matters and inventing stories for his two children.

Launched in 2000, Maurice Lacroix’s PONTOS is returning to the forefront to fittingly celebrate its 20th anniversary. Specially for the occasion, a variety of sizeable pieces are joining the collection. The characteristically PONTOS details, finishes, contrasts and taut lines celebrate a vision of watchmaking where understated refinement reigns supreme.

PONTOS CHRONOGRAPH MONOPUSHER

The PONTOS Chronograph Monopusher is a limited edition of 500 pieces and plays on impressions with initially unsuspected depth. Here, the ML166 automatic monopusher chronograph calibre is used as a historical reference to the development of complications as well as for its aesthetic benefits. Its single pusher creates asymmetry and breaks with common expectations of chronographs.

PONTOS CHRONOGRAPH

Two versions of the PONTOS Chronograph have arrived, blending modernity and timeless style as always. Inside the PONTOS steel case with a larger diameter of 43 mm, the ML112 automatic chronograph calibre gives PONTOS a whole new dimension. The dial is available as a lacquered white or sunray-brushed grey version, where the hour markers take the form of applied Arabic numerals for the first time.

PONTOS DAY-DATE

The PONTOS Day-Date – the first model from the PONTOS range to have been redesigned in 2017 – is joined by two new versions. Yet the design details of this 41 mm model remain unchanged, with triangular hour-markers, a sunken minute circle, cut-outs in the dial at 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock that highlight the date and the day respectively, and slightly trapezoidal hands with a rigorous design. Maurice Lacroix has also built on these foundations with an unlimited edition that presents a bronze case and a green dial.

SANS MATIN are a new footwear label; designed in London and handmade in Medellin, Colombia. The brand offers a range of luxurious, versatile and stylish sneakers for both men and women.

Developed by cousins Charly and Lockie Cunningham, the initial brand idea came about during the founders five-month backpacking trip around South America, where after a muddy trek and subsequent search for a new pair of sneakers, the SANS MATIN story was born.

SANS MATIN footwear is created for people searching for; original, comfortable and affordable sneakers that are carefully designed to suit every environment; from the office in London, to a bar in New York, to a local restaurant in Medellin.

You can find the full menswear collection below, including two limited edition styles; The Golden Child £200 and the new Mr A £140.

A CALMER BEDTIME WITH JOHNSON’S® BABY

The power of gentle scents is key to every baby’s developmental milestones. Scent holds a strong connection to emotion, not just for adults, but for babies as well and plays a crucial role in the bonding process between parent and child. Decades of research have shown that multi-sensory experiences are a key part of happy, healthy baby development.

Our unique JOHNSON’S® Bedtime NaturalCalmTM fragrance is centered around soft floral and powdery notes to help soothe baby before bed.JOHNSON’S® understands how special bedtime is to parents and their little ones and want to ensure it’s as calm as possible to create memorablemoments, with the help of our known and loved scents along with a soothing bath and massage.

Rebecca Bennett, skincare expert at Johnson & Johnson comments:

“Bedtime is a special time for both baby and parent and can set the foundations of a good night’s sleep for years to come. Your baby will be more relaxed if he / she knows what’s coming next, so it’s a good idea to establish the routine as soon as possible – as young as 6 – 8 weeks. Start by following a set pattern every night, i.e. bath time with familiar products / scents, baby massage, nappy change, lights off, singing a lullaby / reading a story etc. The routine will help to relax your baby – preparing them to fall asleep easier and quicker. Stick to your routine as best you can even when you’re not home – it can make it easier for your baby to settle down in unfamiliar surroundings”.

Step 1: Warm Bath: Bath time is the perfect, relaxing way to start baby’s pre-bed routine. Use a baby wash with a calming and familiar scent, such as Bedtime bath.

Step 2: Gentle Massage: Follow bath time with a soothing baby massage, the perfect way to make baby feel secure, loved and ready for sleep. Use a babylotion with a relaxing scent, such as Bedtime lotion, to soothe before bed.

Step 3: Quiet Time: Finally, send little one off into the land of nod with a little quiet time for baby to give parents more chance of some quiet time forthem. Keep the atmosphere calm and cozy and help baby wind down further by reading, singing or playing a lullaby. Try one of the JOHNSON’S® lullabieshere.
